1. Destroyer.
2. Impossible Orders
3. St. Paul, 1935
4. Yes
5. Minimum


You eliminated men and women who would compromise Infrastructure. Sometimes subtly with a cut break line or gas leak, sometimes less so with a gun. Then you got sent the wrong orders. A list of targets that did not, could not exist. Unions that had never formed, protesting against a President that had never been elected, meeting with ambassadors to countries that no longer existed. Your mind broke, restarted, and you found yourself outside the God-Machine.

We can annex Canada while leaving Europe to its own fate, no need to actively support Hitler.

You'd have to get America to let go of its entire Pacific empire and stop caring about trading with China to avoid a war with Japan. It'd honestly be easier to stop the war in Europe than stop things from boiling over in the Pacific.

1. (Reusing my earlier idea because I liked it drat it) Every action to make Infrastructure was just another piece of a machine moving. A fatal car crash was a piston pumping, a burst gas main was a gear turning. All was as it should be, as it only could be. Preordainment kept the infinitesimal twinges of doubt and feeling from lasting long enough to be noticed by you or the God Machine.

Then you got sent the wrong orders. You were supposed to send a union that had never formed marching down a street with the wrong name in support of a revolution that had never happened. For the first time you considered the world in terms of "might be" instead of "will be". If different was possible, better was possible. The world turned upside down and dumped you out of the God Machine's control onto the frozen streets of St. Paul in the winter of 1935.

By "We" you mean the God-Machine. Angels have no free will until the moment of their Fall.

We moved levers and flipped switches on a machine the size of Rhode Island to bring the winds. We made the storm that brought red snow to New England. We made the blizzards of Black Sunday. We buried things and animals and people under millions of tons of grit. And we looked out all that we had made, and saw that it was Not Good.
