Perhaps more of a NSG cliche, but people citing 1984 with reckless abandon...

That's more of an internet cliché more than anything else.

'I got banned from [insert any website here] for violating the terms and conditions I agreed to follow when I signed up??? This is literally 1984.'


"I have to follow rules about what can and can't be said when dealing with non-governmental entities? What about free speech? 1984!"

Now I'm thinking of Yuri's smile on propaganda posters. Even if the world doesn't get any better during these years, I'll never forget how the first person in space wasn't some aristocrat or politician, he was the son of a milkmaid and a humble industrial worker...

because the bureaucrats and politicians were too scared out of their asses to climb up on that damn hypergolic candlestick and conscripted a pleb to do it for them.

ahem, my cynic's side is showing again.

That smile deserved lyrics all by itself, apparently.

Ahh...shit...I just remembered that I still need to work on how the Space Race is going in the Las Palmeras-verse. Sergei Korolev is still alive and the Red Army captured Von Braun and all the Peenemunde staff in '43. Eh, I'll get to it, eventually....

So on that day, a pure love fantasy was borne, invigorated by Reinkalistan's encouragement.

Once again, Kiu's heart began to pound with joy as the possibilities began to flood his mind: A dreamy vacation in the Pacific, sipping rose on the beach while suntanning next to Mr. Perfect, the Comrade Secretary. Their dates at the arcade, where Comrade Secretary would win every prize there was on the claw machine, gifting each of them into Kiu's waiting arms. They would look into one another's eyes, and Kiu would lean in to smell the soft cigar smoke lingering on his jacket, smiling as they held each other in their arms tightly. And of course, the wedding and honeymoon: no expenses would be spared as Kiu and Comrade Secretary enjoyed the best ceremony one could have in Vladivostok, And then, after they became partners forever, they would retreat to the cabin that Comrade Secretary had built with his own hands where...

Kiu opened his eyes, changed forever. He knew what he would have to do, and bought a one-way trip to St. Petersburg. A new life was about to begin!

From my factbook. I regret nothing.
OOC: This is a niche historical in-joke, tied to outdated theories over East Asian cultural diffusion into the Americas to explain things like the 4-color cosmogram and feathered serpents, proposed by the late ethnologist Walter Krickeberg in the 1940s and 1950s.

I notice there is a trinity of nations on N&IRP: It's either your puritanically Christian, puritanically Islamic, or hardline Communist. These nations are so common, at least in the parts of the forums I participated in when I was still Crabaiaia.

So guess what I did with Cavirfi? I made it both borderline puritanically Christian AND borderline hardline Communist at the same time
