Here's another Doomsday RE: redux fic for the Doomsday-verse! This one though is a glimpse into the not too distant future of 2031 in the AU, which focuses more on the changing world and the Old World Nations (or rather certain ones) slowly giving way to their own successors. For those who've seen the previous version, you may notice a lot of alterations and changes, especially in the connections/roles/whatnot between Austria, Sopron, Hungary, Prussia and Partium ([link]
), as well as a reference to "Hans" (aka the Alpine Confederation, aka Vash and Lilli's child from this fic; [link]
). Also, some of the details are continuity nods to other fics in the Doomsday-verse, 1983: Doomsday
proper and Hetalia
, although I try to make them easy to go through. Still, I hope this RE: tale keeps as much of the premise and tone as possible.
As for pairings, this is VERY much AusHun/AustriaxHungary-centric (take a guess who Sopron's parents are), with implied SwissLiech put in for good measure. It's also the second-to-the-last- fic I plan to make for the Doomsday-verse that's set in the future.
Anyway, just to be sure, this is not meant to be a political/ideological/propaganda screed. This is a work of fiction. Enjoy!
*UPDATE* Added some more bits of trivia in the description.
As for some translations and references:
Info on Doomsday-verse Hungary can be found here: ( [link]
The main gist of what happened to Vienna and Austria in general can be found here: [link]
. Needless to say, it didn't do so well at first.
Partium ( [link]
) is a survivor state based from the city of Debrecen on the easternmost fringes of the Hungarian Wastes under Transylvania (another Survivor-Nation from Romania).
Sopron ( [link]
) is a Hungarian city along the Austrian border; it used to be called Odenburg. In-verse, she's also the Sopron Frontier Territory ([link]
), although some have apparently taken to calling her Transdanubia in the same way Debrecen came to be called Partium.
United Magyaria is a future projection of the Hungarian Wastes the Doomsday-verse, imagining what might happen to Sopron and Partium several years down the line. It's not exactly canon in the source material. ([link]
Prussia's zeppelins are a reference to the New Zeppelin Company from 1983: Doomsday
(1983:_Doomsday) ). It's the result of airships replacing jet travel in Europe after Doomsday made air travel difficult. And Prussia has a virtual monopoly over it.
And as an added nod to Hetalia, Austria's wheelchair comment is a reference to what became of him after World War I and shortly before the Anschluss in 1938: largely sick and bound to a wheelchair.Meine Tochter
- "My daughter" (German)Wien
- Vienna (German)Mein Gott
- My God (German)Verzeihung
- "Sorry" (German; semi-formal)Nem
- No (Hungarian)Számíthat rám!
- "You can count on me!" (Hungarian)Szerelem
- My Love (Hungarian)

nor 1983: Doomsday
