OK, so what is that?
Got it in one.I'm guessing it's a visualisation of diverging timelines?
What’s the divergence that sets off the splinter timelines?Got it in one.
A timeline map from a canon where trying to change the past once (2016, bottom right) tends to splinter it quite a bit.
We’re the little blue line off of 1980.
this is a good questionWhat’s the divergence that sets off the splinter timelines?
And how are the timelines like?
Interesting idea.Will you be making it part of a TL soon to appear on this site or is it just an idea?
Sorry if I seem over demanding,I was just curious.I like your work and how you usually subvert genres.
 Campbell took over after Gill's resignation on grounds of ill health and (cautiously) proposed democracy with a little 'd' - courageous enough to not run again but timid enough to not move elections up, Campbell was rapidly outmaneuvered by her own Cabinet. Secretary of Employment and Engagement Yarbrough, who had stayed firmly away from (divisive) foreign affairs or (even more divisive) transhuman policy, pushed Campbell into irrelevancy in her own administration and was promptly elected to succeed her.Give Us This Day Our Daily Mask

and a neo-southern rebellion, too
Suffice it to say that "New Reconstruction" is significantly more problematic than it might first appear.Gov. Albright of Louisiana began to call for secession. Lascurain, trying to take a page out of Yarbrough's book and stop spending money on the neverending New Orleans Levee Program, went "sure" and promptly misjudged the situation when a dozen states from Florida to New Mexico took the opportunity to hold referenda. Lascurain's coalition crumbled - East Africa, Russia and Pakistan made clear that they would not stand for forcible repression of these efforts - and Albright was rather swiftly elected President of the Gulf League (not as fond of the CSA as you might suppose, especially considering white flight for over a century of endemic flooding tends to make a state, er, majority-non-white.) Lascurain's efforts resulted in the collapse of his own party - and of executive power, what with Congress rather hypocritically going "we would not have been stupid enough to sign on to this".
Yes. Off-hand California does PR voting or district voting or something, but it could be the Reco Electorate or something equally clever, if people have any suggestions.Going to assume the red circle in California represents a separate electorate rather than the Jefferson Arcology Dome.
