KATE AND LEOPOLD AU

So I was watching the cinematic masterpiece known as Kate and Leopold, and now I’m wondering where the XMFC AU IS!?

LISTEN PEOPLE. THIS COULD HAPPEN ONE OF TWO WAYS:

Version One:

Charles is a wayward playboy genius lordling who has no direction and is being forced into a loveless arranged marriage, despite certain male-oriented proclivities…handwave *MAGICTIMETRAVEL* he ends up in present day New York in the apartment of a taciturn and reclusive Lawyer who thinks his particular and isolated life is JUST FINE THANK YOU, and slowly, begrudgingly becomes charmed by the displaced Englishman who marvels at everything in this strange new world and helps Erik rediscover his sense of wonder…

Version Two:

…is basically the same thing except Erik is a stern, nose to the grindstone Lord of an isolated manor and Charles is an absent minded 21st century Professor, each lonely in their own ways, brought together through handwave *MAGICTIMETRAVEL* and through a series of misadventures (Erik would be so angry about not being able to use technology properly, would gallantly come to Charles’ rescue when some jerk of a date tries to manhandle him, would show Charles that he can be respected and loved, and treated well) they fall in love…

I WILL ACCEPT EITHER OF THESE SCENARIOS. IDEALLY BOTH. 

THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

PLEASE AND ALSO THANK YOU.

    Yes, but how about Charles is the one who travels BACK INTO THE PAST, and look at that, all that classic posh education...
