Two women from the future are using a technology quintessentially linked to the 1980s while visiting the 1920s - yeah, I think that's enough Anachronism Stew for today. ;-D

I already had the idea for a time traveler's cassette tape collection full of creepy recordings quite a while ago. But only recently I figured out who said time traveler should be...

So yeah, like already Chapter 17, this one will take almost entirely in the past.
But don't worry, we'll get back to the usual present day shenanigans after that.

I admit I love the idea of it being an eccentric hobby. It makes so much (weird) sense.

An eccentric hobby makes sense in the sense that it doesn't really have to make sense! :-D

Kudos to Cleo for getting into the roman senate as woman.

As time traveller she has probably become very good at disguising herself...

Quite possible that Ariane trained her a bit, too.

Could well be.
This Cleo is from the year 2041 after all - a lot can happen between now and then!

I'll get Cleo a fur coat for her 14. birthday, you'll see.

How about a toga and a wig of the male Roman hairstyle? ;-)

Pfffffft, Babette needs a present, too. I go for furcoat. It teaches a girl to deal with bollocks.

Regarding Babette's present though, something out of brown leather would most fit her style...

that said, it's still mighty odd that the tapes wound up in a secondhand shop

It might have something to do with the time loop thing that Cleo is talking about... ;-)
