Rapture In The Holy British Empire

July 25th, 2004

in 1104, Caliph Muhammed Abdul Rahim of Gaul expels the Celts from his land; “No infidel pagans will be allowed to stay within lands ruled by the faithful,” the edict proclaimed. Rebellion followed as people refused to give up the religion they had followed for thousands of years.

in 1771, Mlosh colonist Kmari goes berserk among the Sioux people of the Dakotas. She massacres over 400 people in a village before other Mlosh can apprehend and dispatch her. It is the first known case of a Mlosh mass-murderer, and was kept quiet by the aliens until the 1820’s.

in 1963, Governor Wilhelm Schoemann of China unleashes 10 nuclear missiles against rebellious forces working against his SS troops. He is very aware of how much damage they do; in his youth, he had been on the team that had engineered them for the New Reich. He had even met the team that had given the blueprints to Reichsfuehrer Hitler, the men who spoke as if all the events they were witnessing were in some sort of different time. One of them looked disturbingly familiar; but he thought little of it these days.

in 1964, Pete Best’s album, Lovin’ Through The Night, goes #1 and stays at the top of the charts for 14 weeks. It is then used as the soundtrack for a film of the same title, which also leads the box office for several weeks.

in 1966, New York Metros manager Casey Stengal is selected for the Town Ball Hall of Fame.

in 1981, Voyager 2 passes Saturn and all contact with the probe is lost. The last signal sent seemed to be images of a long tunnel with a speck of light at the end; then something long and tendril-shaped seemed to reach out and smash the camera.

in 2002, several tens of thousands of British citizens disappear from the face of the earth. Pope Righteous I blames it on Satanists who have abducted good Christians to perform black masses upon. Righteous asks the whole world to pray for their souls.

in 2003, Martian forces, which had kept to the colder areas of earth, leave the poles and begin bombardment of human cities all across the globe. Most areas are able to fight them off with the Sheridan nanotechnology, but the Martians still cause millions of casualties. Human forces strike back at the poles, but are unable to inflict very many casualties, as the Martian defenses are still too strong for the humans to break through.
