I actually joined LJ in 2005, but deleted my original journal because I wanted to get rid of all the old posts - and as LJ will only let you delete posts individually, and I had over 2,000, I was lazy and just started anew. :P
I live in England, I like horses, I write ridiculous stories where friendship is everything and romance is banned, and I believe in Unicorns, Sherlock Holmes, tall ships and Anglo-Saxons. Sometimes all in the same context.
I am a massive history nerd, specifically revolving around ancient Britain - Saxons, Vikings, Celts, Picts, Romans. I like to feel a connection with the past and the land that I walk on.
