    So, I haven't seen anyone pumping out ideas and recs for one of the forerunners of the RTS genre so... let's have some fun.

    To start things out, one of my ideas:

    Xenonauts 1/Tiberium Dawn

    It has been decades since the Praetorian Invasion, decades since half a billion people died in that horrid war, decades since the world was bathed in fire and lightning, decades since the Xenonauts attempted a hell-marry plan to ensure humanity survives. Things have changed then. Surprises have been discovered, the Xenonauts became the Global Defense Force, and mankind shifted.

    So in 2020, a strange asteroid managed to bypass interception and land in the Tiber River valley in Italy... unleashing an alien material that even got the scientists within the Xenonauts stumped...

    ... just as a new organization -the Brotherhood of Nod- shows up on the world stage, causing chaos as it spreads the material around the world.

    So begins... a Tiberium Dawn.

    Yuriko just wants to play with "FRIENDS"


    I am honored you've invited me to discuss Command And Conquer.
    You're wanting a crazy idea? Needing to bring my A Game.
    Borrowing from bluerock on SpaceBattles. . . .
    . . . Alexander Romanov is a ROMANOV thus Anastasia x Red Alert Crossover.

    Yuriko with a sensable childhood would be an interesting thing...
    ... or it could be some orphan that the soviets gave the Romanov name to after they exterminated the entire Romanov family to the last just to be sure that there wouldn't be anyone to be used as political collateral... given that the player character in World in Conflict: Soviet Assault's soviet missions was also named Romanov.

    "Although an aristocrat and a member of the communist party, Romanov was an advocate of peace." - Red Alert 2 installation briefing.
    Seems evidence he's aristocrat,
    Enough justification for Anastasia crossover with family reunion element anyhow :p

    That... goes against what happened in real life. [stares blankly into the screen about the horrors the Bolsheviks did to all the nobility they could get their hands on] ... ok then...

    It's an interesting development because without experiments Yuriko would still be a terrifying powerhouse.
    Her attempting to navigate utterly mundane situation in spite of her overwhelming power.

    So... basically Superman/One Punch Man? That could work...

    A crazy idea: basically due to SHENANIGANS, GDI gets a portal in a blue zone... that leads straight into Remnant. Derails ensue.

    Daily life of someone overpowered enough factions plan war AROUND her?

    Better yet Izumi and Yuriko's daily slice of life. Global superpowers pretend they don't notice.

    That would be great if it weren't for the fact that the setting would have the Imperialists running Japan and not the Old Men faction...

    Also, GDI showing up in Remnant would be interesting right? ;)

    World lacking a Tiberium versus place without Grimm yet neither is particularly better.
    Huzzah for everyone on both sides perpetually getting punked by plots of immortals.

    True, but GDI fighting the Grimm would be a spectacle to behold... especially when they simply send feedstock through the portal. ;)

    Should we count Kane Video Biopic like a fanfiction?

    Equivalent from Remnant on Earth is unlocking Havoc's Aura.
