UPDATE: Not a Fanfiction Update

Ok, that new Anne series isn't going to take place in the present. It's going to take place in the 1870s (courtesy of that unsustainable post-Rainbow Valley timeskew), and I guess "it will be contemporary only in that it will investigate some new themes." I don't know whether to be disappointed or not! Maybe I'm a little disappointed, but also excited! 

The live-action Emily of New Moon made a game attempt to "investigate some new themes" in a Montgomery franchise with its illegitimate Murrays and laudanum addictions, but it wasn't really that game an attempt and it was also a complete disaster. I don't think the fact that it was a darker / more complicated take on the material was the problem, though. 

I guess I'm more anxious about that timeskew than anything else. Twenty years makes a big difference, especially for a fashion-conscious girl like Anne. Though all will be forgiven if we get to hear all about the Riel Rebellions and Mrs. Rachel Lynde is dead certain that no earthly good can come of this Confederation business, that's what.
