    Why you should vote for A Different Path
    1. Good style, moving plot. Has depth but won't bore you.
    2. New idea, not done as a TL before.
    3. Relevant to current events IOTL.
    4. Good balance between plausibility and a good read.
    5. Not biased in favour of one side, neither a utopia nor a dystopia.
    6. Widely praised by readers.
    7. Has a cool title card by @SargentHawk
    8. Is creative, brings up people who are not well-known IOTL.
    9. Just an all round good TL.
    Please vote for A Different Path!

    SergentHawk's TL is the best choice here by far.
    If I could I would have voted for it several times and I urge others to give the TL a vote for substance, style and following of rules in his TL.

    You could start by spelling his name right! I do try to follow the rules and I regret that one mistake, though it should not disqualify my TL, which is great on the merits and nobody cared about style until people like you brought it up. This is a thinly veiled attack on my TL, and I have never attacked other TLs. It's just plain unsporting, a low blow. If I lose, it should be on the merits of my TL and the others. The style issue was an honest mistake, but is a non-issue. Don't behave like this, it is not on. Let the best TL win!

    @SargentHawk's timeline is fantastic and I regret that I forgot to check it off. If you lose by one vote, it's on me, but.

    I'm super happy the TimeLine I first tried to nominate ended up winning! I just knew it was the best one I had seen completed this year. Congratulations to @Ephraim Ben Raphael for your hard fought and well earned Turtledove Award.
