Comment on this post, and I will choose seven interests from your profile and ask you to explain what they mean, and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your journal so that others can play.

flight of the heron

The title of the first in a trilogy of books by DK Broster, set during and after the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745. It was one of my earliest fandoms, of which I was practically the sole member.


Okay, this is kind of embarrassing. Luke Skywalker + Mary Sue Keiten Avram, from Rebel Heart. Yeah, shipping my own characters, what can I say?

arthur ransome

The author of the Swallows and Amazons children's book series. It's a classic, and it's brilliant. If you've never read it, what are you waiting for?

county down

The county where I was born and grew up. I'm currently living just across the river, but Belfast doesn't really count. All Irish counties are named in English with the word 'County' in front, unlike the counties of England. It's often abbreviated to Co. when it's written down, which causes confusion to outsiders. I was telephoned once by someone in NHSCR wanting to check an address, and she said "Bryansford Road, Newcastle, Codown". I explained, while trying carefully not to laugh.


A contraction of "Vorkosigan universe", the world created by Lois McMaster Bujold in her series of SF books featuring Miles Vorkosigan and his parents. They're brilliant, definitely recommend them to anyone who hasn't read them.

roman britain

What it says on the tin; the period in which Britain was the Roman province of Britannia. I got into via Rosemary Sutcliff's historical YA fiction in this setting; I think she's also in the interests list.


The writing system (it's not really an alphabet because the sound assigned to each character can change depending on the language represented), invented by JRR Tolkien for his invented Elvish languages, Quenya and Sindarin. Inventing your own language and a way to write it is just cool. I have invented an alphabet myself, and made a font out of it.

In other news, it's still raining. There's a severe weather warning on the Met Office website. Sadly, today is the day our church's camping holiday starts. And because it's been raining all week, the campsite will already be a sea of mud...
There were a grand total of 455 commenters, but although it shwed up in the preview pane okay, LJ insisted that the full table was too long to post, so I've cut it down to 50.

I've decided that I ought to read a few more of the SF classics, so I've got Ringworld and Ender's Game out of the library, as well as Cryptonomicon and a couple of things by someone called Alistair Reynolds because you can have 6 out at once.

My sister [ profile] elerrina_amanya has now reached Borders of Infinity on her trek through the Vokosigan Saga (I think she started with Warrior's Apprentice, though). Revision, who needs it?

Nifty! I wonder what happens when people change their default icons; do you end up with a page full of red x's?

It's interesting the way the different 'wings' of my flist are different colours; the Handmaidens dark blue, other SW fans turquoise, R/H shippers greenish-yellow and other Potter fans pink or orange-red. Though this is playing havoc with my synaesthesia, in which R/Hr shippers are blatantly red and brown! Closest people to me are [ profile] persephone_kore, [ profile] fernwithy, [ profile] sue_parsons, [ profile] angua9 and [ profile] bluemeanies4. I suppose it's like a visual version of the Mutual Friends toy (what happened to that, by the way?).
And why are [ profile] fernwithy and [ profile] jen_d in wee boxes?
My journal says I'm 52% feminine.
