Pop Culture Timelines Go-To Thread

Well, here is my idea: What if Joss Whedon had made a WW movie in the 2000's with a revised version his widely mocked script??? He of course casts someone female from Buffy/Angel/Firefly as the lead. I am actually a fan of much of his work, but I think it would shatter his image earlier and worse than OTL.
 
Thinking of doing a timeline based on one of the explain the ah quotes that I did... PM if interested. (It's about a decline and fall of a certain musician)
 
I dunno how to expand it into a full thread, but I've always had this reversal idea of Bruce Timm & Paul Dini doing Marvel animated shows and CAPCOM doing DC games. A few scattered paragraphs and lists are in here... [doc here]

Another development: Greg Weisman heads a DC animated universe post-Gargoyles, coinciding with the launch of Kids WB.

Interesting the changes for Ben 10 and marvel and DC and capcom, feels a little a mirror but one very original enough, those cartoons would have been an amazing treat, the same the games
 
Was there ever a chance for Mortal Kombat + Marvel? There is a scene in Secret Wars where Dr. Doom removes the spine of Thanos similarly to Sub-Zero's Spine Rip fatality...

This'd have to have several circumstances leading up to it. Either Midway gains the Marvel license, or Warner somehow ends up buying Marvel instead of DC and also somehow still buying Midway as well. I can see them mostly sticking with darker/Marvel Knights type characters (MK VS MK) like Ghost Rider, the Punisher, Moon Knight, Venom, Wolverine, Deadpool, or villainous ones like Doctor Doom, Magneto, Thanos, Ultron, etc.

Yeah the Set of butterflies than leaded up to MKVSDCU was very unique from OTL, those might be impossible to replicated thanks the POD in question, so as ducko say, unless the one ended up buying Midway/Midway-Chicago and Marvel characthers might be the one pulled it... and that is hard to pulled it, so sadly might not happen
 
Hello.

I posted here one (1) time in another life, with an idea that I’m glad I never got started on. I have since started a new, non-AH project on AO3. But I have finally managed to start reading TWR, and...WOW. How did I miss this the first time? Thank you, Brainbin.
 
That said, I have developed a great interest in the late 60, and to a lesser extent the nineties grunge culture.

I probably won’t write anything AH myself, but I guess I would have some broad PODs
I am all ears here. Throw them out and I will discuss butterflies/effects. I myself am very interested in the 60's and 90's grunge culture.
 
Honestly, I don’t want to discuss them too long (I have school and my own work), but one point is what if that alleged meeting between Morrison and Joplin had gone over better...

My friend says it wouldn’t have worked, and she might be right, but I think it’d have been intriguing.
 
But, I do have a general theory...I’m sorry if saying this somehow ruins anyone else’s scheme, but...

Because there are only so many songs in the world, and many of them have been written already, if any important, talented enough musician who died too young instead survived, I feel like they would end up writing songs that were written in our world, just because they thought of them first. Maybe not the lyrics, but the instrumentation.

And that would unknowingly “steal” the careers of those who would have written them...

Is this plausible?

Implausible. "Only so many songs in the world"? Doubtful, for there are infinite possibilities in language and in instrumentation. Yes, you have similar chord patterns, but those would not be the same songs. There would be similar themes, but the words would not be the same.
The title might be the same, even, but those would not be the same songs. I don't think that would steal the career.
