There will be food shortages, cultural clashes, resentment all around, maybe even riotingÖ We actually might get to see what the Red Cross, or whatever organization has taken up their banner, might be doing in the ML world.

What do you guys think?
Quite intriguing, and I'd say this would be an interesting aspect of the Alternative world to explore. Unfortunately, I doubt my ability to pull it off. Maybe someone like Kei, who took a short ME3 newsblurb - "Kal'Reegar dies protecting a comm relay" and turns it into a manly tearjerking heroic last stand (reposted here with permission by Lowe Gear).

As long as you donít characterize the Singaporean after any of those jokers from ĎAh Boys to Mení, Iíll be happy. I just watched the movie the other day on DVD, and couldnít get past the first few minutes without feeling thoroughly embarrassed and insulted. I know the SAF is a conscription army, but there are limits god damn it!
Don't worry; I'm basing her off a girl I knew... though my memories are about 10 years old

In all fairness, it was up to your usual standards and quite decently written. As I said, something just didn't really draw me in.

...and yes, more Stray Dogs pls.
