This story arose from a discussion I had with Tim and Sarah back in October - we were all a little sleep-deprived at the end of my week-long stay at their place, and the very random thought popped into my head: "What if Darlan got elected as the next president of the USA?"
Well, I mentioned this to Tim, and we talked about some things he might do... and a few days later, I decided to go ahead and write a comic strip about it.
The story takes place between 2011 and 2017, and its (strictly non-canonical) chronology assumes that Darlan defeats both Barack Obama and a Republican rival in the 2012 elections, and is sworn in as the 45th president in early 2013.
