Well, if you're here, I suppose you want to know a little bit about me. Right.
I'm a girl from the States and proud of it. I support gay-rights and can't stand people who are homophobic, though I try not to start arguments. I have little tolerance for racism and sexism and I believe strongly in equality. I am an atheist and proud of it. On a less serious note, however, I will admit to being a strong lover of chocolate, traveling, and kittens. I also have a soft spot for fluffy hair and dark brown eyes. And puppies. A person's life is not complete without puppies.
I love history, especially ancient Roman and Greek, but I also like medieval and Renaissance Europe. I can't make myself study anything past the seventeenth century, though France is the one exception to that self-impossed rule. I adore England. Too much, actually. I also love languages, and hope to become fluent in Spanish before I die. I take Latin along with Spanish at school, but I would love to learn French, Greek, and Hebrew, too. I love art museums and old cathedrals. I love a good book something fierce, though I don't really like poetry too much. I'm more or less in love with mythology, especially Greek and Norse. What can I say? I love little things with grand pasts.
I've recently discovered that I'm not very good at using other peoples' characters to create a story. I just feel awkward with using other authors' inventions in my own scene. I feel like I'm intruding, actually. However, I feel perfectly comfortable making my own plots and characters, as odd as that may sound.
My pen name is a play on Vulpecula, the fox constellation. Unfortunately, someone has already taken this name. Grrrr... Anyway! Moving onto literature-y stuff!

finding your personal legend). That's it, I think...

"You cannot be a feminist and oppose a woman’s right to choose.
You can be a feminist and be uncomfortable with the notion of abortion. You can be a feminist and communicate that discomfort to third parties. You can be a feminist and choose never to have an abortion yourself. You can be a feminist and support greater rights and opportunities for young mothers everywhere so that fewer women will have to choose between pregnancy and their career. You can do all of these things and be a feminist. What you cannot do is stand in the way of any other woman’s moral and political right to reproductive self-determination.
There is a world of difference between being against abortion on a personal basis and supporting, or leading, movements to make the practice illegal. There are no good arguments for making abortion illegal, a policy which, where it has been tested in other nations, has been shown to lead directly to hundreds of thousands of adult women dying in horrific pain along with their unborn children following illegal backstreet terminations. Distasteful as you may or may not find it, women will always seek to terminate unwanted pregnancies. The very least we can do in civilized societies is make it safer for them to do so, along with facilitating access to contraception in order to reduce the number of terminations that need to take place…"
