Earlier this months I found out that Hans Christian Andersen and Casanova had the same birthday: April 2. There's no way they ever could have met--their lifespans don't overlap by even one year. But I still want some sort of RPF where they interact. It would be complete crack, their personalities don't appear to be similar at all, but they were both writers and they both did a lot of traveling through Europe. Just thinking about it makes me giggle, as they would be completely and totally mismatched in terms of getting along.

On a related note, there's so much "next generation" historical fiction out there about the children (real or made-up) of famous people. Casanova must have fathered children, given his lifestyle. So where the hell is the fiction about "Casanova's daughter/son"? That would make for a highly entertaining novel.
