Valkyrie Vengeance World by lamnay Valkyrie Vengeance World by lamnay
During WW2 two operations had different outcomes. Operation Vengeance, the American assassination of Isoroku Yamamoto failed, and Operation Valkyrie succeed in killing Hitler.
These events changed the course of the war drastically and by 1945 Japan and the German Republic were fighting with the Allies against the Soviet Union and Himmler's Third Reich.

With the war continuing the conservatives won a marginal victory in the 1945 general election and Churchill remained in power. After the Soviets were defeated it was he who suggest that Germany should restore it's monarchy. While German remained a republic, it became a federal one with Chancellor Lettow-Vorbeck approving a Hohenzollern, a Wittelsbach and a Habsburg to return to their thrones.

Churchill aslo reluctantly oversaw the start of decolonization, a somewhat more gradual process than in our timeline with Britain refusing to leave a state until stability could be assured. This occasionally lead to violence, as it did in India in 1948 where Muslims and Hindu Nationalists clashed, and in the same year in Palestine where Arabs and Jews fought.
In India agreements were reached, but ongoing violence has ensured that the Palestine Mandate is likely to remain British well into the 21st century.

Both Britain and France maintains better relations with their most of former colonies, even keeping a few territories in South America, the Caribbean, Africa and the Pacific, and while on their own they are not super powers, with the French Union and Commonwealth of Nations behind them they can give the USSR and USA a run for their money.

In Malaya and Indochina Communism posed a major threat into the 1950's until stable governments could be established and the Asian Treaty Organisation formed.
Communism still continues to rear its ugly head across the world, but it could never take off in the way it did in our timeline. Even the Soviet Union is liberalizing, if slowly with Leningrad becoming a special economic zone, experimenting with capitalism.

Olmecs, Zimbabweans, they have old stone structures with unexplained history... Could mine that for ideas.

Or you could do it. Art is better when the person making it, wants to.

Agreed. But there is such a thing as collective art. Group dances, etc, with dominant individualistic influences.

i.e. deity worship.

There are also turtles and atoms and wine glasses.

I don't see what you're trying to say.

Coherent structures form. Quanta leads to atomic, leads to atomic structure, elements, compounds, then... pretty much everything else.

A Universe is in perpetual evolution coherently. Light is just a barrier, etc.

The redundancies are pretty vast and very overprotective. They're necessary.

Just out of curiousity, the other allies of the USSR, I assume there's a new Mesoamerican emergence in South America?

'cause that's a lot of gray landmass and there's a decent compassionate socialist defensive wall in northern South America.

<shrugs> Dunno but I really like how this map is structured.

Emergence?

I don't quite know what you mean.

Well, there are still Mayans, aren't there? And they still carry a language. Given enough time, and enough sanctuary and protection, their population numbers would increase.

Tie it in with the Aztec virgin sacrifices and an idealization of Tupac Amaru as a female.

Assume that gray areas on this map are nuggets of female emergence slowly accelerating towards a Terran-Lunan matriachial hierarchy throughout the 21st and 22nd centuries.

Seems logical enough for a very valid, strong alternative timeline that heals a massive multiplicity of timelines.

Hope that makes sense.

None at all, this history is about Hitler getting killed and Yamamoto living.

I don't see how that's going to have Aztecs on the moon.

How much does the moon weigh?

Tracking back lunar orbits through the regolith and sending the water through the pits at Machu Picchu in a certain time range should create a temporal reverbation.

As far as Adolf getting killed, he dies anyway in both histories, and before he was a fascist leader, he was a penniless artist in Austria, wasn't/isn't he? As long as his birth-death range is fixed and his movements are known, the emergences can be interdicted within two points: one within the Terra-Luna system, the other a fixed temporal mass in the Oorts.
