Physicists! Further Assistance In Breaking Europe?

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 12.06% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

So a while back, I asked you rampant physicists to assist me in destroying a (fictional) Europe, and I got some fine feedback.  Then I had a bout of Seasonal Affective Disorder, and the experiment tumbled to a halt in a slurry of misplaced depression.
Unfortunately, I am now approaching the stage where I need to write the chapter that explores the wounded Europe – as in, “My muse is going there right now, and if I don’t follow it this very weekend, I’m gonna lose something vital” – and I need some assistance.
So!  If you’re a) willing to deal with some mild spoilers in what happens in The Fix, and b) quickly ponder some questions about how to tweak the laws of physics so things will be awful for humans but survivable in spots, then please email me stat at
(As an added bonus, anyone who helps out will get credit in the acknowledgments, and if they want will get to read a beta-draft of The Fix when I eventually finalize the sucker in a few months.)
Because I know what the characters are doing.  I just don’t know where they are. And I’ll fake it if I have to.  But it’ll be less cool without your assistance.
