My name is Harriet and I am just a bit of a geek/fangirl/legend/insomniac/writer/liar.
This is me:
I live in merrye Englande, which is infinitely not as olde as I wish it were. My favourite thing to do in the world is daydream about the past, and in doing so imagine just how actually legendary it would be to live in the 11th/12th/13th/14th/15th/16th century. Then I backtrack and think the joyfulness of this might be slightly tempered by oppression, evil Norman landowners, succession crises, witch trials, famine, no makeup or showers, and so on. Ergo --- I would like to inhabit my own little world filled with just the right concentration of sexy chainmail-clad chevaliers, socialist outlaws, camp figures of authority, implied slash, and pretty dresses. Which I fully intend to continue doing for the rest of my days.
I am just a little bit in Love with certain historical figures. I'll defend Richard III to the death, and Robert Devereux was not a foolish cad, he was just high spirited! *Lovesss* Also, fictional characters. I am diggin' Robin Hood (who actually is my ideal man of all time), Sebastian Flyte, basically anyone from "Rocky Horror" (Riff-Raff!), and Silas from "The Da Vinci Code". >Fangirl<.
I often stay up all night, watch whole TV series on dvd in one sitting, have filmfests on my own, make fanvids/icons (and I do requests), beaver away at THE novel, buy notebooks and write in them at ungodly hours because I can't sleep unless I write down the thought buzzing round my brain, spend hours lurking on message boards reading every single thread. And yes, I write fanfiction. And yes, it is Slash.
I make icons.
Brushes by AbsoluteTrouble, Caitirin, Alapsuscalami, DamnIcons, David Lucena, Ewanism, Setine_Kitsune & StarlitDesigns. All wonderful.
I'm off to Oxford next year to read History. Just thinking about this makes me happy.
Talk! Add! :D
