  1. United States of Europe From 1632 Series In 2017

    The 1632 Series is a series of books where a fictional West Virginian town is sent to Thuringia in 1632. The residents of the town eventually create a new United States that encompasses much of the OTL Holy Roman Empire. This thread is postulating how 385 years of growth and change have affected...
  2. Effects Of Delayed American Independence

    Here's a straightforward question. What would be the effects of a delayed American independence? How would it affect the history of the continent and the world at large?
  3. Alternate History Soda Companies

    In this thread I ask a question similar to that of my Alternate History Fast Food thread. What brands of soda are people drinking in alternate timelines? The only thread I've seen that approached that was Heart of Dixie with Dixie Cola. And that was basically just Coca Cola with a different...
  4. Alternate History Fast Food Restaurants

    One detail of alternate history settings that is usually neglected is fast food restaurants. Where would someone go to get a quick bite to eat in these alternate timelines? Filling in minor details like what burger joints are popular there adds a little bit of life to these timelines.
  5. WI: THe Marvel-DC Deal Went Through

    What kind of long-term consequences would have happened had the deal for Marvel to produce comics of DC properties gone through? DC's comics were hemmoraging money, with the main profits coming from the merchandise. Warner Brothers (who owned DC) approached Marvel to produce comics as a way to...

    Ub Iwerks, the co-creator of Mickey Mouse, was an incredible figure in his own right. So what's the best way to make his post-Disney career more successful? Would it be possible for his studio to do better, or would he have to collaborate with another company to see more success?
  7. The Most Unlikely American Presidents

    This is a pretty straight-forward concept for a thought experiment. Which American politicians, candidates or otherwise, were the most unlikely to end up in the Presidential Mansion? This also comes with imagining a scenario where they could have plausibly ended up in the White House. Whether...
  8. WI: No "Mickey Mouse Law"

    What would the world be like if the 1998 law extending copyright never happened? How would our cultural landscape look without it? And what kinds of works could we have made with characters like the famous Mickey Mouse in the public domain? I know that this is more than a little implausible...
  9. Alternate Casting Decisions

    This is a thread discussing the what-ifs of film casting. The casting choices that, for one reason or another, didn't get to see in OTL. I'm not necessarily asking if they'd improve the film, just whether or not they'd be good in the role. Jeremy Irons was considered for Hannibal Lector. Tim...
  10. Comics WI: Jim Shooter Buys Marvel

    I don't know much about comics, and I got the idea for this thread after watching part of Sfdebris's series on comics history. Former editor-in-chief Jim Shooter had attempted to purchase Marvel with the aide of a group of investers, but had narrowly lost to a company owned by Ron Perelman...
