Cherry, Plum, and Chrysanthemum althistory is consists of several different timelines within it, having been developed around the parallel Point of Divergences called the Holms. Currently, there are four holm timelines that are part of this althistory.
A Broken Myth
This timeline is the central feature of Cherry, Plum, and Chrysanthemum althistory. From this timeline, this althistory is built around. A Broken Myth perhaps the most detailed timeline on Cherry, Plum, and Chrysanthemum althistory as it covering many pages, has a greater butterfly effect, affecting a large region in the ATL world, and I had been put much effort for writing this timeline. Several timelines on this althistory also derived from this timeline. The timeline focused mainly on East Asian history starting from 1800s. However, the only thing that explored heavily on this timeline is the history of Japan where the main POD of this althistory and this timeline took place.
This timeline also contains the actual history written in Japanese-biased style as in the ATL pages of Japan, Korea, and Manchuria.
Grande Armée of the Channel
While not as detailed as A Broken Myth timeline, Grande Armée of the Channel is the second most important timeline on Cherry, Plum, and Chrysanthemum althistory. However, unlike A Broken Myth, Grande Armée of the Channel more greater impact on the world history as its story happening and gravitating around Europe that we can called as the "mother of world civilization" in 1800s and 1900s.
While the holm of this timeline is about the shift of French invasion to Great Britain, instead of Russia, it does not limited only around the history of Napoleon and the French Empire. It expanding its sphere to the history of Russia, Italy, the Holy See, Spain, and even as far and wide as of World War I, the Soviet Union, India, Pakistan, and also Vietnam. While it is not the most detailed Cherry, Plum, and Chrysanthemum timeline, A Broken Myth indeed has more wider impact on history than Shore of a Luminous Beam.

Wind that Brought a Redemption
The name of this timeline, Wind that Brought a Redemption, quoted from the speech of Robert Rhett, the main advocate of Southern United States independence:
- "A few more bounds, and it falls – the Union falls; and with it falls, its faithless oppressions – its insulting agitations – its vulgar tyrannies and fanaticism. The bugle blast of our victory and redemption is on the wind; and the South will be safe and free."
The holm of this timeline is surrounding around the success, not the victory, of the Confederate States of America in the American Civil War to gain the independence. Ironically, this timeline itself is not gravitating around the Confederate States, but instead around the history of the United States. As result, it is not only covering the politics of the United States, but also the world styles and trends.
Memory of the Victories
Memory of the Victories is a timeline which specifically exploring the history of Soviet Union, the Bolshevik Party, communism, Cold War, and Eastern Europe; although it connected with other timelines, such as Grande Armée of the Channel. The premise of this timeline is simple, “What if Stalin dies due to the complications from acute appendicitis?” Memory of the Victories has narrower sphere of influences, but with more powerful holm that changed the whole history of the Soviet Union, its people, its ideology and its status as the world super-powers.
