An emotion you feel when you are nostalgic for a time you were never alive in.
It is a proper subclass of nostalgia.
Protonostalgia is like when a chick is nostalgic for the time of pirates! Or, when a dude misses being a 16th century courtesan. It also happens when folks spend a lot of time wishing they could be Shakespeare's pal!
"Do you miss being a pirate? I miss being a pirate!"
