"It's pointed out, however, that a good chunk of Britannia's official history was actually fabricated."

I've seen this claim made a lot, but I have NEVER seen a source for it. Does anyone know where this idea comes from? Because otherwise I'm deleting this line.

  • This is why I'm so surprised that so few, if any, fanfics take advantage of this. You have so many more options as soon as you add in Dawn due to having another gender to work with. River Tam, Cortana, Femshep and plenty more.

This is natter, and I honestly have no idea what it's talking about.

Pardon the noob for this but is there really a need to insult John Wayne on the Feng Shui entry? "different character played by an actor with limited range", where in the rulebook it states (paraphrased here) how John Wayne would play pretty much the same person in different movies. Wouldn't "different character played by the same actor in the same way" be a less insulting term?

A question I asked just before the discussion format changed, and then forgot about - Does The Bartimaeus Trilogy count? I've only read the first book, but it struck me how "powerful wizards rule the British Empire" means "Gladstone and Disraeli were powerful wizards", not "Glasdstone and Disraeli were never Prime Ministers".

I almost tried to YKTTW this exact trope under a different name (Timeline Inertia). I feel so stupid now.
