The quiet and seasoned Alexander Nicholson Sr. of Anchorage, Alaska, part of the Independent Sovereignty of Oregon making a rare public appearance on Great Friday during Paskha of 1940, otherwise known as Easter. It is worth mentioning that he, much like many other Alaskans were Russian immigrants and refugees, therefore mainly royalists...

Seen above are the youngest three of the five children of the Russian immigrant Alexander Nicholson Sr. with those three being from left to right: Mary, Annie, and Alexander Jr. During the Second World War, Alexander would join the army and fight briefly in Eastern Russia, whilst his sisters served on the home front, Annie in particular as a mainly comedic actress for North Star Pictures, who would entertain the troops on stage, and by the wars end would even perform a Russian cover of the song "We'll Meet Again".

So that's Mary E. Winstead, an unknown actress, and Christian Bale as the sources, correct?

A snapshot from Cinderelline (1951), just as Elaine "Cinderelline" Larousse prepares to go to a royal ball.

Elaine was a simple maiden, with a tragic backstory. Both her parents died during the Black Death in her childhood, leaving her an orphan. (This is revealed via backstory, and dialogue through the film.)

Over time, Elaine climbed through the social hierarchy of 14th-century France (as implied by the setting and later films), managing to become a houseworker for the Beauchamp household. She often spent her time starting the fires and cleaning the chimney, resulting in her being mockingly dubbed "Cinderelline" by her cruel stepsisters Adela and Bertha.

Managing to make it against the wishes of her abusive stepmother Theophania Beauchamp, as well as her stepsisters, prince Philippot is charmed by her humble beauty and they have a blast with each other. Philippot accidentally rips a piece of Elaine's gown.

Upon returning home, Elaine is distraught that she will be forced back into the same repetitive cycle of abuse. Even worse, Theophania finds the gown, burning it in jealousy (but not without a wrestle between her and Elaine for the gown).

Word reaches the household that the Prince is looking for a woman who approached him on that night. Luckily, he has the fabric... and she has a scrap piece she tore off from that fight.

Appreciating her modesty from that ball (compounded by her meekness when visited at the house), the Prince chooses to marry her over the others. Happily ever after.

Lily James as Elaine in the 2015 live-action adaptation of Cinderelline. Top picture is her "typical" attire while serving as a maid at the Beauchamp house, the bottom picture is her gown to the ball.

The 2015 adaptation revamps some of the elements of the 1951 film to be more "accurate" to medieval France, while still maintaining a fantasy approach.

This was one of the notable events in which the first African-American president was elected just two weeks before the Crossed outbreak.

I got another Photos from Alternate Worlds Thread started if anyone wants to add anything that might be considered "current politics".

I'm not trying to advertise or anything, I'm just telling people the news, so don't take that the wrong way.
