I am trying to write a time-travel short story about two real people from history. The individuals are
- Jack Sheppard, a robber notorious for being a popular criminal who escaped four times in his young life in the 1700s, and
- Joseph Beuys, a German sculptor whose ideas I find hard to understand but believe he was interesting because of his spiritual perception and variety of ways of fulfilment.
I’ve been working on character duos and how they can bond over one specific interest. I want to try involving people who have popularity and skill in common - such as Sheppard’s reputation of intelligent escapes from prisons and Beuys’ ideas and personal but mundane story about being rescued by Tartars.
What genre should I say this is?
