Come with us now on a journey through time and space...
Time travel is painful and should not be attempted.
Is advice you should follow at all costs. But sometimes it doesn't work out, and you find yourself randomly thrown back in time to 1763, when women were women, and men most certainly looked like women. It was good times, except for the weevils in the food and the occasional (weekly) hangings of 14-year olds-- but just for fun.
And when your time machine-- the one that you don't know how to operate-- is stolen by the ruler of the London underworld, well then, that's no good, is it?
So you best take your pretty-boy cutpurse friend, put on your buckle shoes, and get on that, chief.
