• The 'Comrade' title is now available in a fetching communist red for purchase by all of you capitalists who survived the Sietch gulag during the people's revolution. And in the spirit of all communists everywhere, it was broken until the capitalist pig dogs fixed it. ;)
  • Your beloved Boot here with a confession. The Boot tangled its laces and failed to properly set up the new Comrade user title. Thanks to the kind intercession of Emperor Tippy this failure has been corrected and the new user title is now actually on sale to everybody.

Dune What if: Alia does not fall to the Baron

So I started rereading the series and coming to the part of the Dune where Alia awakens, I thought of how she ended up and wondered what would happen if sometime between Prophet of Dune and Children of Dune, Alia participated in discussion of Freemen commanders about various command issues during the Jihad and realised that solution to situation in her mind is to build coalition of several voices, as her subordinates, to keep the rest of them (especially the Baron) under control. How would then the events of Children of Dune unfold, would Leto still discover and embark upon the Golden Path?

Leto II's destiny was always to walk the Golden Path, it would have happened at some point, whether now or later he would have done so. Alia's actions just exacerbated his need to do so, maybe his own future may have changed slightly with more experience under his belt but by and large it would have stayed the same.
