The Sparrow Avengers Universe

Allohistorical setting inspired by Jordan Weisman's and Dave McCoy's Crimson Skies, but set mainly in Europe. Created by Petike. Years in the making (since 2008), some glimpses into it have been posted in various parts of the board. For now, this page serves primarily as a repository for canon elements of this alternate universe.

7. Cultural Stuff

a.) Famous quotations

See the scrapbook thread for more details.

Music

"Snap" and "Pop music" - Equivalents of OTL pop music and OTL esotheric or world music.

"Hook & Hoodlum" and "Hooligan" ("Hool" for short) - Equivalents of OTL rock and roll music and rock music, plus associated genres.

"Rubble" - Equivalent of OTL punk music and associated genres, evolved from “hooligan music”.

"Debris" - Equivalent of OTL ska music and folk-rock, evolved from “hooligan music” and jazz music.

"Goth" and "Vandal" - Equivalents of OTL hard rock and metal music, evolved from both “hooligan” and “rubble” music.

"Drone" - Rough equivalent of OTL techno music and associated styles and genres.

"GW" (Gramowrangler) - ATL term for disk jockey (DJ).

Cinema

"Easterns" & "Pierogi easterns" - The alternate geopolitical and cultural developments of much of the 20th century spawned a unique spin on the genre of film Westerns. Pierogi Easterns are a subgenre of Eastern set in central Europe and Ruthenia, mostly during WWI and the period of the Disunion Wars in the late 1910s and early 1920s. (Russian and Central Asian Easterns also tackle that same period very often, though from their own geographic and historical perspective.) (Link to be added.) Easterns and their Pierogi Eastern subset have also created genre crossovers with science fiction. EastWar is a science fiction thriller series (and semi-official sequel to Čapek's R.U.R.) with Pierogi Eastern elements, examining robotics, humanity and the entertainment industry. The Visegrad Space Guard franchise spinoffs Outpost Delta 7 and Terra Nova are partly considered Space Easterns, equivalent to OTL Space Westerns.

Television

Visegrad Space Guard - A primarily televisual media franchise, has run since the early 1960s or so, though it has been somewhat dormat since the first half of the 2000s. Consists of four television series - VSG 2145, VSG 2185: The Mission Continues, VSG: Outpost Delta 7, VSG 2215: Terra Nova - and loads of various related works, including novelisations, comics, various model kis and toys, some feature-length films, and so on.
