After an admittedly long delay, here is Chapter 5 of Monarchy Over the Danube
. This is based on both the map and the original source here: [link]

This one though fast forwards to the last months leading up to this AU's version of World War II, with Poland in danger, the Nazis and Soviets on the move...and Austria-Hungary in the middle. All while they face many difficult challenges in how to deal with the looming War as well as each other. And to make of for lost time, this also includes an interlude showing England/UK and the Entente's reaction to the whole thing.
For pairings, it's pretty much AustriaxHungary/AusHun, though there are implied sibling relationships regarding the Nations of Yugoslavia, some implied ties with the former Czechoslovakia and references to Poland and Hungary's historic friendship.
And just to be sure, this is an alternate universe fic. This is NOT intended to be a political propaganda screed. But as a warning though, there's some harsh language and mentions of a rather sensitive issue involving the Nazis and the at-the-time-rumored "Final Solution."
Still, please feel free to read on. Hope this makes up for lost time!
For some historical info:
Otto von Habsburg ([link]
; 1912-2011), was heir to the Austrian throne following the abdication in 1918-19 and later on death of his father, Emperor Karl in 1922. By 1938, he's very much the Emperor-King of the restored Empire.
Poland in this version of events is also in between the Nazis and Soviets (and would be the first flashpoint of this world's World War II), with the Empire as protective of it as it is interested in old Galicia.
The Entente Cordial ([link]
), formed in 1904 was the formal name of the Allied Powers during World War I and was at its heart an alliance between France and Great Britain (including their colonies and dominions). By this AU's version of 1938, it's expanded to include the Nordics and to an extent, Italy. All while America remains on the sidelines...for now.
"Jerry" is British slang for "German" and was used during our world's WW1 and WW2 as a derogatory slur.
