Grizel dies on the cold misty mountain.

Joey becomes seriously depressed after hooking a real dead body on the guide camp and has to be institutionalised. After the Anschlus she is sent to a concentration camp and dies leaving only her diary behind. It is later published and reviews were kind but it wasn't a work of great literature.

Dr Jack marries Eustacia, a woman who can meet his famous intellect (and beat him in the Times cryptic crossword). They have two children who go to the local high school.

Juliet tells Donal where to shove his apology, and stays in teaching instead. She and Grizel do such a good job at the Annexe that they become the two long-serving Heads of the main school.

'Drabble' in the wider world generally means a story of exactly 100 words, but over the years on the CBB it's come to mean just fiction (as in CS fanfiction) in general.

'Yibble' is random chat.

:D

Blimey, now you're asking! I believe 'Drabble' originated in the 1980s; something to do with sci-fi... No idea about 'yibble', though. Sorry!

Jo and Madge decide that the bracing environment of Canada is better for the school, and move it there. Girls get caught up in the national English-French rivalry, and the teachers fight a losing battle to teach the girls pure Parisian French as opposed to Quebecois.

"Drabble" was originally defined by Monty Python as a word game in which the first person to write a novel won.

What if the original Mrs Cochrane hadn't died and Grizel couldn't leave home as she was a companion for her. If Madge hadn't taken her with them the CS would have been seen as a school for Austrian girls and probably wouldn't have had so many English speaking students.

Joey wouldn't have been ill after rescuing Grizel and then there would have been no holiday and rescue from crashed trains and they wouldnt' have met Jem. The school would have ended when the war started.

Frau Berlin was just a little bit fatter, Madge couldn't get her out and had to retreat as the carriage burst into flames.... So no incidents with Grizel being rude, and no cliff-hanger on the fire escape. And may be Jem would have passed Madge by as a quitter, rather than calling her a 'plucky kid'?

Frau Berlin was never in the train because she was stuffing her face in a restaurant and exploded after eating a wafer thin mint.

Shortly after her marriage to Mr. Creosote?

The fat lady in the hotel fire (that wasn't FB, was it? It can't have been, surely?) got through the window and caused the fire escape to collapse.

Joey, Robin and Emerence were all killed and their funerals were held at the Chalet School. Later on when the chapels were built, OGs clubbed together to pay for three satined glass windows comemmorating the loss, and deoicting various scenes from the thing that caused their demise. The maid, who also died trying to save the Robin was forgotten about, much to the distress of her relatives.

It was Frau Berlin... and I assume you mean Evadne, not Emerence? :)

The School doesn't manage to evacuate from Guernsey in time before the Germans arrive and they live out the war under German occupation.

Incidentally, Joey, Robin and Bil are spotted before they have a chance to escape. Robin sadly dies in a concentration camp.

Oh - of course! It was a deliberate mistake, of course ... I wish! Useless at times, I am. Ah well, there you go. At least people can decipher what I mean ...

Of course, in an AU we could have Emerence coming over and being mistaken for Evadne - aren't they both fair and 'sharply pretty'?
