During the summer, as I was mulling over ideas for future projects, I realized what a lot of authors already know: To make a fabulous story idea, add “in the Regency” to the end of it.

This is like the Chinese fortune cookie game where you add “in bed” to your fortune. Hilarity ensues. In this case, however, you might come up with some really useful ideas.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer in the Regency? Colleen Gleason‘s Gardella Vampire Chronicles.
Sex And The City in the Regency? A gazillion different authors, most notably Eloisa James.
Desperate Housewives in the Georgian? Eloisa James, again.
Charlie’s Angels in the Regency? Jenna Petersen.

What other examples can you think of?

Now every time I’m watching TV I pin “in the Regency” to the end. Unfortunately, since most of the TV I watch is due to my son, I’m left with Spongebob Squarepants in the Regency, or Scooby-Doo in the Regency (although Shaggy could be the Prince of Wales, couldn’t he?)

What piece of pop culture would you like to see “in the Regency?”
