  9. What if an alternate Hull Note was accepted by Japan

    I've been wondering what would happen if Japan and the US agreed on a diplomatic solution to their issues in the lead up to the attack on Pearl Harbor 1941.

  12. Storms of the Eternal Blue Sky: The Yuan Restoration

    What if the Northern Yuan retook northern China, and restored the Yuan dynasty? Mongol TLs are relatively rare, especially ones post-Yuan or post- the collapse into independent khanates, so I'd though I'd start my first TL based on the POD of 1517, where in OTL, despite the odds, the Ming...
