    You are walking down a quiet alleyway in central London. Suddenly, a wormhole randomly opens and propels you back in time to 1590. Elizabeth I is on the throne and you are in Tudor London.

    You are in your modern clothes and have on you what you take around with you most days (phone, purse or wallet, etc.)

    How do you survive? Do you tell people the truth and hope you're not accused of witchcraft? Do you discard all your modern goods and try to blend in and adapt to this new life?

    There is no chance of a further wormhole opening.

    I would have visited Elizabeth the I's tomb. She was long dead by 1690, my friend.

    I'd tell Liz that I have a device which allows her to summon Lord Flashheart at will. Pretty sure she'd be cooking me a nice fat goose after that little favour :sexface:

    Nah tbh, it's what we were all thinking. Very, very different. Can't imagine the puritans getting down with Elizabeth's crowd ngl

    The Puritans were long gone by 1690. With the High Tory state being in existence for 30 years.

    Oh God, I actually wrote an AC fanfic about something similar. *cringeeee*

    I don't know how well I'd fare in 1590's England being South Asian, tbh.
