Alternate Universe

Alternate Universe (often abbreviated as "AU") is a descriptor used to characterize fanworks which change one or more elements of the source work's canon. Also may be known as multiverse. The various universes within the multiverse are called "parallel universes", "other universes" or "alternate universes."

Often used in Fantasy, Science-Fiction, and Comic genres.
