    You could pretend to be from the Mughal Empire.
    That's no fun with my RP-ish accent, love of ballgowns and love of Renaissance court intrigue.

    But I don't want to pretend I'm Persian. I'll do the travelling to Firenze part since I'm all for the Italian Renaissance...

    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.

    But...but...ugh. I'd rather get burnt at the stake for accusations of witchcraft (after telling them what their country's condition will become over the next 400 years) than be treated like a caged circus animal.

    I don't know what your ethnicity is, I'll assume your're turkish/middle eastern. In which case there would have been lots of contact with upper class londoners and turks, mainly due to trade, so that wouldn't work. But yeah the ottomans were pretty cool anyways, I'd probably try and work my way into academia and then start 'inventing ****'. I'd say im pretty content in the 21st cent.

    I'm not Turkish or Middle Eastern. Wait, what wouldn't work?
    Yeah, I'd say I'm pretty content in the 21st century too. Minus the whole Islamophobia shenanigans. :rolleyes:
