I'm new here so yeah not much to see. I'm interested in alternate history as I am in interested in real-life history.

I first came here around 2012-2013, but I joined in April 2014.

About myself

I am 20 years old taking up major in B.S. Biology in the University of San Carlos-Talamban Campus, Cebu City, Philippines. I had my high school in B.R.I.G.H.T. Academy. I like going to adventurers, going to raves, reading history, playing video games, and speculating about how the world could have gone the other way.

I graduated from USC on April 10, 2017

My Timelines

The Era of Relative Peace

This timeline explores the world after World War III. This is based on a World In Conflict fan fiction I wrote last Christmas.

Click here for the sandbox.

The Eagle Looks to the Right

Adapted this timeline on October 21, 2016 from User:SpanishSpy. This timeline deals on how America moves forward when George W. Bush suddenly dies of heart attack upon hearing news when the Capitol building is struck by an Al-Qaeda hijacked plane on September 11, 2001.

The Hammer, The Sickle, The Earth

Adapted this timeline on October 21, 2016 from User:SpanishSpy. This timeline is a dystopian world in which the Soviet Union dominates global affairs. The United States, the symbol of freedom and democracy, has long ceased to exist after too much instability within. The USSR appears as a mighty, unstoppable juggernaut, having annexed Korea, China, Indochina, Central Asia, Germany, Cuba, Alaska, Hawaii, Yukon, British Columbia, and Cuba. However, the old saying goes "Every mighty empire in the world will always fall." Signs of the USSR overstretching itself has been seen and it has been predicted that the Soviet Union may collapse on its own weight in a decade or two. But for now, the mighty Hammer and Sickle flies over the globe.

Kony Captured

This is a speech I (an-alternate of version of me) delivered during a fundraiser concert on April 30, 2014.

To all students; current and former, alumni, faculty, staff, parents, guardians, and friends; good evening. I, Gillan Baclayon, an alumni from the Batch of 2013, am here for the opening remarks of this ceremony. Why am I here? It's simple. Our school has been ever united by the tragedies that happened late last year: both the Bohol earthquake and Typhoon Yolanda. Most of us still remember where we were when it happened; our memory of it is still fresh. Well, true and I am saying this as a person who was in Bohol on the morning of October 15, 2013. Like everyone of us who was awakened on that fateful morning, I was no different. I could remember everything, from the moment I fled the hotel, to going further inland for the fear of tsunami (as we did not know the quake came from the center of the island), to frantically grabbing any food, water, and medical supplies as most bakeries, restaurants, grocery stores, and pharmacies were closed; and to the hastily evacuation from the island when I saw myself and my family the following day with only bread, water, and instant noodles. This was not the first time an earthquake hit our region. I could still recall, back then when I was 3rd Year at the age of 15, on February 6, 2012; a 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit the Tañon Strait on 11:49 am. We were all in the midst of classes when it happened. However, comparing to what most of us experienced roughly six months ago; that was nothing. My experience in Bohol, stranded for a day with limited supplies, thought me how fortunate I was to survive that day. 299 others, plus roughly 16 who remain missing to this day, were not so fortunate. For me, it was still better than losing my home or losing my life. A few days later, donations and relief sprung up throughout the country. When B.R.I.G.H.T. Academy mentioned about a setting up a relief drive, I quickly answered my alma matter's call alongside with everybody else. Being there on Bohol on the day of the earthquake; I knew it was right to give back to the less fortunate.

Three weeks later, another tragedy befell on the Philippines. This time, it was Typhoon Yolanda, also called by its international name "Haiyan." Bohol and Cebu were still recovering from the previous month's earthquake when the super-typhoon hit. We were all saddened to hear and see the news on the damage of Tacloban City, which was also extended to the rest of Leyte, Samar, northern Cebu, the Camotes Islands, Bantayan Island, Aklan, Mindoro, and Palawan. It was a heartbreaking story seeing the footage of knocked-down houses, litterred streets, fallen trees, and rotting bodies of citizens who did not make it. The looting and the subsequent desperation of the people made it even more sad to us all viewing it. I remember following the news on CNN, BBC, ABS-CBN, Solar News Network, Fox News, Al Jazeera; and on Facebook,Twitter, and Instagram. However, there was hope. The Filipino people, despite the tragedies endured last year, kept on standing back. The world was behind us this time. The Philippines garnered a ton of international sympathy. Countries deployed their ships, planes, and volunteers to help us stand back up. Aircraft carriers and great warships, which we have seen in action destroying life, were used to preserve life. Even China, our adversary due to the South China Sea, put on hold the differences to help us as well. In times of need, what we call petty things should be put aside for the greater good. I remember watching the news on TV or in the Internet the relief effort, planes and helicopters dropping relief goods, babies being born despite the destruction, commemorative concerts held by Filipino communities around the world. Even last Christmas, the people of Samar, Leyte and other affected areas celebrate with hope despite having nothing. I would like to thank everyone who helped us all; whether from the Philippines or any other country abroad. I would also like to commend those who gave even short of a penny so that others could have. And I would like to commend those who went to the affected areas and was able to feel how it felt to live following Yolanda's aftermath.

As I said earlier, the Filipino people despite in their most desperate moment, managed to smile. It is a symbol that the Filipino spirit is stronger than any earthquake or typhoon. As CNN's Anderson Cooper reported here in the Philippines during the aftermath said on November 15, 2013. I would love the quote his entire comment, as it brings a heartwarming message to us all:

When everything else is taken away, broken, battered, soaked, raw, stripped, bare, you see things, you see people as they are. This week in Tacloban, Samar, and Cebu, amidst the hunger and thirst, the chaos and confusion, we've seen the best in the Filipino people, their strength, and their courage. I can't get it out of my mind. Imagine the strength it takes for a mother to search alone for her missing kids, the strength to sleep in the street near the body of her child. We've seen people with every reason to despair, every right to be angry, instead find ways to laugh, to love, to stand up, and to move forward. A storm breaks wood and bone, brings hurt and heartbreak. In the end, the wind, the water, the horror it brings is not the end of the story. With aid and assistance, compassion and care, this place, these people...they will make it through. They already survived the worst. Their about perhaps tired and traumatized, but they are not yet broken. Mabuhay Philippines! Maraming Salamat for all you've shown us. Maraming Salamat for showing up all how to live.

(applause from the crowd)

With that, and seeing all the resilience of the Filipino people and the unity of all the world; I therefore conclude not only did the earthquake and the storm make us stronger, but it has united all of the world as one!

(Standing ovation from the crowd for one minute)

With that, I am not going to hold you guys any longer. While we celebrate tonight as the beginning of summer, we should also remember those who were not so fortunate during that time. Hence, the reason for this fundraiser concert.

May the rest of 2014 bring us all blessings! Thank you and have a good night.

(Another standing ovation for one minute).
