    Summary

    Take History. Add Dragons. Stir until a Genius makes friends with them and things explode. Take the resulting stock of Hiccup and tamed dragons and set it to simmering in 1040 AD, in the Scottish Hebrides. Add more Kings, Emperors, Romans, Vikings, Conquerors, Spies, Warriors, Thieves, Knights and Nobles, to taste. Take cover, and sit back to watch the fireworks.

    In Real Life, 1040 was the tail end of the Viking Age; Europe was 50 years from the First Crusade; the Catholic and Greek Orthodox Churches have not yet formally split, William the Conqueror is a frightened teenager in Normandy, the Byzantine Empire is collapsing after a revival under one of their great emperors, and the great Viking Harald Hardrada is a Varangian mercenary there, while the Caliphates are having a rough time from the new Seljuk Empire and their own internal tensions. The most corrupt Pope in history holds Rome, the Reconquista of Spain is underway after the collapse of the Caliphate of Cordoba, and the Norse religion is a pale shadow of what it once was, hanging on around the Baltic Sea, Iceland, Greenland... and the Hebrides.

    And into that heady mix, there is now Hiccup and Berk.

    Yeah, history won't know what hit it.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Dumping HTTYD into accurate historical time period, complete with the insane mess of politics and nobility, and then treating the consequences seriously: It's like the 1632 series, but with dragons.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Time travel Obi-Wan, but this is a very different set of choices, and a radically different point of departure. Obi-Wan the Separatist General is fantastic and deeply layered.

    Summary

    Shot down on Utopia, Obi-Wan is placed in carbonite to protect him. He is awaken fifty years in the future into a world that is quite changed. The Jedi are gone, the clones are gone, and he learns about the days leading to the end of the Republic.
    Obi-Wan must now navigate in a world that he no longer recognizes, though the galaxy no longer has Jedi, he will be the Jedi they need. And perhaps mess with the plans of darksiders while he is at it and perhaps find a few old friends along the way.

    General Obi-Wan in the Force Awakens-ish timeline.

    ...Part of me wants to know what Leia and Han named Kylo Ren, as they wouldn't have orginally had Ben Kenobi in mind.

    What if Anna decided to derail the apocalypse by intervening to help rather than trying to make the brothers never having existed.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Anna time-traveled, Sam squeeges off demonic influence, and several fridged characters are unfridged so far.
