    No More Nowheres. Beginning of the End (December 17th, 1979 - December 19th, 1979).

    Believing that NATO forces would be occupied with the fighting in the Middle East, Leonid Brezhnev and his advisors initiated the invasion of West Berlin in the early hours of December 17th. They believed that if NATO forces were too busy fighting in the middle east, that they would easily outnumber Western Germany, and the western powers only options would be either to surrender Germany, or the use of nuclear weapons, believing that they wouldn't chose the ladder.

    Reagan and his staff, seen here watching a news report on the invasion. After this, he would give a speech on live TV to the American people, to comfort them and to reassure to them that the United States and NATO would do everything in their power to keep the peace.

    Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher being informed of the attack. Like Reagan moments before her, she would tell the British people via the radio that the UK would not stand for the hostile actions taken by the Soviets. On December 18th, the royal family would be moved to Madresfield Court accompanied by family friends and guards, whilst the PM would be moved to a secure bunker located in Whitehall, London.

    The 2001 pilot to the Cartoon Network hit series “Constant Payne”.
    The series is an anime-inspired dieselpunk action-adventure dramedy and science fiction show, with an aesthetic inspired by "Russian wood-block propaganda posters of the 1920s & 1930s, created by Micah Ian Wright. Constant Payne, often called CP or ConPay by its fandom, was originally meant to come out in 2001 and be a Nickelodeon program but due the events of 9/11, and problems with unions, the network dropped it.

    It wasn’t until Cartoon Network founder and president Betty Cohen stumbled upon the 2001 pilot in 2004 that Constant Payne would get a second chance at life. When Cohen contacted Wright and told him she and CN were interested in his pilot and wanted to make it a full-fledged show starting with 12 episodes, Wright reportedly was completely overjoyed and left his relatively new job in the field of video game writing to join Cartoon Network.

    Constant Payne would go on to be one of CN’s best known and successful series alongside the likes of Avatar: The Last Airbender (which premiered on the network in 2008 after Nickelodeon turned the show down for reasons that remain unclear to this day), Ed, Edd, n Eddy, Chowder, KOJI, Sym-Bionic Titan, and many others. Though ConPay has out lasted them all and continues to run with new episodes to this day by taking several hiatuses throughout it long runtime (and its current seasons and those of the past are all available on the Cartoon Network App).

    There is news of a Made-for-TV movie coming out next year in 2020 and that it is a supposed crossover between Constant Payne and Nickelodeon’s own Ben 10 (which debuted on that network in 2015). There is much speculation across both shows’ respective fandoms, particularly on the Constant Payne and Ben 10 Aminos, that this inter-channel crossover is an attempt by Nickelodeon to keep audiences interested in Ben 10, which has been dropping in quality and viewership over the past couple of years (leading to a lot of Ben 10 fans dropping the show and going over to Constant Payne instead...at least for those who don’t watch both already, they usually just drop Ben 10 & continue watching Constant Payne).

    All that is known is that that day was among the darkest and bleakest in human history.

    The popular HBO Animated series The Amazing Screw-On Head (2006-2010) starring Paul Giamatti as the titular Screw-On Head, a Civil War era secret agent and steampunk robot with a detachable head, serving under Abraham Lincoln (Corey Burton). The show was well loved for its animation, voice acting, action and humour.

    The pilot episode, originally made for the Sci-Fi Channel, before getting picked up by HBO.
    It's been rumoured that Netflix have floated around the idea of continuing the series...

    Just by that one episode, I think I could easily predict where the show would have gone, you know I could see episodes focusing on her school life, her friend (Who may secretly like her), delving into the setting, exploring what happened to her mother and why her uncle's a bad guy, you know that kind of stuff.

    Independance Invasion Day 2021:

    On the sunny morning of July 1 2021, millions of people all around the world were confused when a strange message flashed acorss their TVs, computer screens, mobile phones and tablets across the world. It was initially belived to be a hoax ala Captain Mignight, but a hoax was as far from the truth as was possible:
    [​IMG]

    Local Alaskan news station TVN reports that one of it's news crews, who were taking part in a multinational race to the North Pole, has exclusive footage of a 'terrorist' attack on the North Pole; although the news anchor says it looks like a foreign attack, possibly Russian in orogin:
    [​IMG]

    On July 2 2021, shortly before it went off-line NASA Lunar Probe Sibrel-1 transmitted a single image which indicated that the message and the attack on the North Pole were not hoaxes. NASA officials tried to block the release of the image but Hacktivist news group LikiLiks leaked the image:
    [​IMG]

    Amateur photographer Dawn P Skence captured the first known Imperial Naval invasion forces landing in Seaford, Sussex. The entire area would soon become a beach-head and sustain major bombardment by the RAF:
    [​IMG]

    On July 3 2021, it becomes even more evident that the Earth is under alien attack when an invasion force lands and emerges from the Sinai peninsula, launching a blitzkrieg attack into Saudi Arabia and Egypt:
    [​IMG]

    The news that Ireland has surrendered to the forces of the Galactic Empire is dismissed as propoganda; that is until footage of Imperial Walkers at Cork Airport is broadcast on all TV channels and on the internet:
    [​IMG]

    On July 4 2021, the Galactic Empire launches an invasion of the continental United States starting in Los Angeles. All military efforts to engage the alien ships prove inconsequential; US President Sanders refuses to use nuclear weapons against the invaders for fear of causing the deaths of innocent Americans:
    [​IMG]

    After the capture of Alaska and Hawaii, the Galactic Empire launches a full scale assault on the Continental United States. The United States military puts up a valiant fight but after the razing of Modesto, the Americans know that there is just one way to end the war:

    Really nice! I was thinking about doing a post like that, but set in the 1950s.

    Prelude to Emergence Day.

    [​IMG]

    From October 2nd to the 4th of 1938 all across Poland, a massive series of thunderstorms occurred in Polish skies. On October 5th, these storms would mysteriously die off.
    [​IMG]
    After the storms had all died off, the Polish people would soon return to their normal everyday lives, with the bizarre storms fading into a distant memory.
    [​IMG]
    But everything changed on October 10th, 1938, with the sighting of "A bird with a woman's head" along the Vistula River by a bird watcher and his wife. The Polish Government would very quickly deny such report, claiming that the bird watcher was a hoaxer. In secret however, the Polish Government began launching investigations into the sighting of this bird and the bizarre thunderstorm from days before.​
