Alternate Earths

67. Monarchy Earth

On this Earth, the United States is a monarchary. The American flag looks the same except that a gold crown is superimposed over the 50 stars and blue field.

Several decades ago, a viral epidemic destroyed the capacity of the female population of this Earth to carry a child beyond the second trimester. Scientists were able to save humanity by the invention of an artificial womb which allows father to carry the baby to term. Once the male takes over the pregnancy, the gestation proceeds rapidly and the father is ready to deliver within a week.

Here, Danielle, the Duchess of Hemmingshire (and cousin of the late Queen Sally) married a commoner named Rembrandt Brown. Their child, when he comes of age, will rule the country as King Rembrandt the First. Long live the King!

68. Angels' Earth

Little girls, and perhaps all humans, on this Earth have small wings which allow them to fly. The usual way to teach children how to fly seems to be the equivalent of throwing a child into the deep end of the pool to teach them how to swim.
