What would you have been in another time period?
Originally I was going to ask what would you be today, if your passion/career/hobby didn’t exist? But everything is better with time traveling.
So it’s simple, if you lived in another time period, what would you have been? Consider what makes you you. What your hobbies are, what your passion is, your career or job, what you do in life. Apply this to another time period where those things either do not exist, or are very different. You decide on the time period. Or you can chose more than one. Based on what you are and do today, what do you think you would have been or done in some other time or place?
For example if I’m a waitress today, would I have worked in a tavern in the 1500’s? Be realist, or be funny, doesn’t matter.
I like Vikings. If I’m being realistic and was born as one though, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have been a raider. Vikings were artisans, travelers, merchants, builders and farmers too. Where would I fit?
So, stuff like that. Have fun with it.
