Author has written 2 stories for Kingdom of Heaven, and Thor.

Well, where to begin...

If anyone's wondering why I'm called 'Little Umbrella', er- you'll have to keep wondering. But Parapluie is the most poetic way of saying umbrella I ever stumbled across in my tentative high-school forays into French.

Just for my humble readers (and myself) so I know where I'm up to speed (or not, as the case so very often is) on a story.

Current Tales:

Tu Salus Fidelium: Wow, this tale has lasted me nearly five years of my life!I started this in sixth-form and I'm finishing this at the end of university. I do love this, for the good reason I get to research like hell and explore my own ignorance. And it's an excuse to buy books, of course. For all the wonderful earnest reviewers who begged me on bended knee to make it AU... it is, indeed, AU. Any historical info you feel is useful is ALWAYS welcome, since I adore the period. Writing this has taught me a lot about the Crusades and made my interest in medieval history a whole lot more concrete. I'm going to attempt to finish this particular story by the end of this year. Thank you so much for the continued interest! I have to admit, I've been procrastinating because I'll feel very sorry not having this to turn to any more.

Old Fics:

Residuals: Ah, the first debut fanfiction of a nervous author. Reading it now, much of it isn't exactly coherent or making any sort of sense at all - but hey! Javert was an absolute pleasure to write. Having re-read this recently, and been somewhat ashamed of my first stab at writing, I've finally put this old story to bed and taken it down. But I've been absolutely overwhelmed by the amount of private messages from people saying how much they miss it! Many, many thanks to you all. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. It was a good lesson in how to write an original character who wasn't a blushing Mary-Sue.

Spare Me These Unending Trials: A humourfic And thank you, thank YOU, for the overwhelming reviews and interest in this one-off piece of mild insanity. I feel my writing style's changed since this baby came to life - but it's always been easy to write, lovely to poke fun at the 2004 POTO "Angst!" Gerik and "ANGST!" Jones - and to finally give Madame Giry a chance to give that domineering psychopath a good taking-down. Once again, put decently to bed in the outer darkness that is the 'Delete' button.
