Immitation is the Best Form of Flattery

Perhaps my head is getting big by pretending to be Jane Austen for five months now. Or maybe it's that I've read so much Jane Austen fan fiction crap that I think I can do better. However I am thinking about writing a Jane Austen fan fiction book based on......NORTHANGER ABBEY!!

Now I haven't read much Northanger Abbey fan fiction. And to be honest it's not one of my favorite Austen novels, but it has so much potential and so many good lines. If a lady does not find adventure in her own village she must seek them abroad. So true and I did this when I studied in Wales. It became one of my favorite quotations.

Have you read any Northanger fan fiction? Do you think that the story could be updated to fit today's society? My idea is to update the story for present day. I don't want to be overconfident, but I think it has potential. Would you read another Jane Austen fan fiction book or has it been done to death?
