I just read a time-travel story in which the MC from today was was plopped down in the old west at around 1848. It was a tale of love, joy, and total improbability! Think of our modern sensibilities trying to survive around 150 years ago! First, two baths a year were common. Even among the wealthy, a bath a month was extraordinary. Women didn't shave. Armpits and legs would be covered in hair. Secret deodorant was still a secret. Menstruation was handled with an old rag that was washed out when needed. Dental hygiene consisted of having the barber pull a tooth that had become too infected to tolerate. Most teeth were either rotted or yellowed. Off-the-rack clothing was scarce and expensive and most clothing was homemade. So socks and underwear weren't changed very often and outer garments probably even less frequently. Charmin' didn't exist! There weren't even catalogues that could be used in its place. Could a modern man (or woman) actually tolerate these conditions and fall in love with someone for whom they were perfectly natural? More so, could someone write a time-travel love story that included all of these problems and make it believable? There's a challenge for someone brave. Write a story with no aliens providing modern conveniences but with two people with 150 years separating their sensibilities still falling in love. That's a story I'd like to read.
