Author has written 9 stories for Scarlet Pimpernel, and Scandal.
I am new to this community, new to Fan Fiction generally, but you'll find me under the pen names Clio or Mary Wollstonecraft, depending upon which e-mail I'm using!
I loved the Scarlet Pimpernel novels as a young girl; in those days, if you wanted sequels to the original (which was easy to obtain), you had to chase them through public Interlibrary loan, or send for them from England, which was a really big deal before the Internet! I remember receiving The Triumph of the Scarlet Pimerpernel (obtained in this manner) for my sixteenth birthday and being thrilled!
I'm working on something currently, and just have to carve out the courage and the time to wind it up and post it, but until then, I'm having a rich and delightful time reading the work of all the talented writers who post here!
I am always grateful for correspondence, and inquiries.
"History is never antiquated, because humanity is always fundamentally the same."
--Walter Rauschenbusch, Christianity and the Social Crisis
"History is the discipline closest to life; and life is rarely free of contradictions."
--Karl J. Weintraub, Visions of Culture
"If the study of history does nothing more than teach us humility, skepticism, and awareness of ourselves, then it has done something useful."
--Margaret McMillan, Dangerous Games: the Uses and Abuses of History
"A knowledge of history will not make us clever for the next time, but wise forever."
