But AU in the non-Section universe sense? Someone once told me I should try writing AU TR stuff, but I've found it almost impossible to do -- perhaps because Section as an entity is *so* central to the identities of my preferred characters

This is the central element for me -- an AU has to find something in its setting that compels the characters to behave, sometimes to behave contrary to their desires or concerns, and that's a difficult setting or situation to manufacture. Without compulsion, the core dynamic for the characters is missing, and I'm not anywhere near good enough a writer to get along without it.
