Additions:
The first T in TTU stands for "the," so a phrase like "the TTU website" is //technically// wrong. However, nobody likes a grammar nazi, and anyways there really isn't a palatable alternative: "I went to TTU website" sounds like it was typed by monkey, and breaking up the acronym to make "I went to the TU website" is f*cked UBAR.

Additions:
As Ash transformed from a comic character to a dramatic figure, and from an exaggerated self to a different man with different formative experiences, his friends and settings grew to where their own stories had to be told. The arbitrary nature of the original world fell away and its timeline shaped itself among quietly pondered "What if"s. Elements like the Mafia takeover of the U.S. government vanished; certain defining events like EventTheFlyby took their place. Bit by bit, the world took shape as a place that //could// have happened, if only we'd taken that screaming left turn at the reality crossroads back in 1996.

By BaxilDragon
I believe I first called the "World of Ash" setting "The Tomorrowlands Universe" for convenience, because I needed a name that was bigger than my character when I first made the setting public. It was no longer about him; it was about something he was only an incidental part of. My website's name seemed like a natural fit.
It became "TTU" instead of "TU" because at the time I was associating with other writers on a mailing list about transformation stories. "TU" was already in use there and I didn't want to cause confusion if those writers decided to set something in my universe.
By the time the TTU setting went online, it was pretty much in its current form. But it continues to grow, and I can't imagine renaming it now that I've thought of it as TTU for so long.

Additions:
This page is about how the name and setting of "The Tomorrowlands Universe" came to be -- and where TTU is going, what the grand vision is. It will be very little help if you're looking to understand how the setting works. For a summary of the actual story universe, see IntroductionToTTU.
