I've spent all day thinking about how to do a modern day version of Persuasion set in Brighton, with pretentious hippies as the people I'm making fun of. The genre is rich, and there are plenty of people to make fun of. I think I've got most of the story worked out; I just need to figure out who Anne is really in love with. I'm fighting between having her be a person who just wants to be normal (with a hippie dad) and maybe, I don't know, falling in love with a postman, or ... something else. Ideas, oh hive mind?
