Will you be posting the other stories also?
Why does everyone "Fire at Will"? Is he really that bad of a person? And what did he do to make everyone want to shoot him?

If a group of necrophiliacs met a group of zombies, who would do the chasing?

Bacon is Life! Even vegaterians eat bacon.

Hm, question: in this AU the Jihad never happened right?

So, no one has realized just how damned huge a army Kowloon can amass if it has enough of a insentive? (From what I remember Kowloon trained and supplied what? 7 million troops?). Which means no one will know just how damned much of a black hole an invasion of Kowloon would be right?

From what I've gleemed, I'd say yes, no Jihad, since the SL is still alive and the 'Goon are on Terra. What I think is the permiss, is after the 15 year Tuyykiad truce ending, the Clans came back in force.

Basically, here are events that are necessary for understanding this AU. Or just follow this link to the first twelve turns.

In 3061- Archon Princess Katherine Morgan Steiner-Davion becomes First Lord due to the fact that Victor didn't join Comstar.

3062- Preparations for the Falcon War begin with Victor.Ian Steiner-Davion becoming Commanding General of the Star League Defense Force. The Word of Blake helps the LAAF Navy build a whole lot of warships.

3063- Falcon War begins, and it basically goes pretty well for the Star League due to preparation and some Clan traitors giving intelligence to the Star League. (This point really isn't clear due to the fact it was added later. It mostly went well due to really good rolls.) To buy themselves time, the Falcons trade part of their Occupation Zone to the Star Adders. Marshall of the Armies Jackson Davion enrolls Yvonne Steiner Davion in Albion Academy. Yvonne specializes in Battle Armor.

3064- Clans Retaliate in full force under ilKhan Din Steiner. The Second Naval Battle of Butler begins when FedCom warships, Lyran fleets, and the Wolf in Exile fleet chase down what is thought to the be the last of the Falcon Naval Force. Five Falcon vessels escape out of twelve vessels. It was all champagne and kissing nurses until it got worse.

And then the Grand Clan Fleet (all the Clans basically) arrive as most of the Free Worlds League Navy, the Core Alliance Navy(Dragoons, Word of Blake, and Comstar), Combine Navy, some Lyran ships, Capelllan ships, Marian Hegemony Navy, Canopus Navy,  and one recovery dropship from the FedCom as the Second Star League Navy which begins the Third Naval Battle of Butler. (Most of the FedCom and Wolf naval assets retreated due to damage from the Second Battle of Butler.)  Anyhow, the Star League basically was winning the naval side when it was decided to make the whole thing a two prong trial. The Clans won the ground side, but space went to the Second Star League.

The Clan traitors turn out to be Clan Coyote. Clan Coyote promptly disappears never to be seen again ever.

Basically, it was decided to do a peace treaty which became the Pasig Accords which died the minute it was signed. This was mostly due to the fact that Din Steiner was killed in a trial soon after, and the only person who really wanted it to work it seems to have been First Prince Yvonne Steiner-Davion. During the whole Butler battles, First Lord Kat got killed by Colonel Charles Antonescu  to save the ELH hostages of ilKhan Steiner. Thomas Marik becomes First Lord. The Federated Suns and Lyran Commonwealth were reborn under Yvonne and Peter as well.

Later that year, the Combine and Capellans invade Tikonov sparking the Tikonov War. The Lyran forces attack Combine worlds. Second Star League stars to fall apart due to the inaction in the Tikonov War.

3065- Daphne Rowe starts her rise to power in the Commonwealth. Things really start to fall apart here.
