Storyline Idea: Colonialism and operetta:

There's this queen (an example of A Child Shall Lead Them) of a small desert kingdom within a country which is a Morocco/Algeria Fantasy Counterpart Culture (Same one as in AKIS) who gets this mysterious love letter containing a poem. So she gets the idea that she'll only marry the guy who wrote the poem, and she has an idea of who he is, but uses magic to disguise herself while she's searching for him, because her enemies have spies everywhere.

The plot is basically the same as this The Rose Of Algeria in the first part. In the second part, a few months later, Zoraida (heroine, from Zoradie in the operetta) and the hero, the French guy about her same age, get married with the permission of the queen's governess and the young Frenchman's uncle, and spend a honeymoon in America, just in time to see ''The Rose Of Algeria." Because the Frenchman's family is so prominent, news stories about his marriage have been flying around the country, and Our Heroine is trying to figure out how to solve the problem of someone taking events from her life story and making it into an operetta and misrepresenting her and everyone else there. Only her husband is portrayed reasonably accurately. Of course I'm not working on this for a while.

What does everyone think? BTW, this will be an Alternate History fantasy.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
