Why, hello there.

When I'm not the Duchess, I am pleasebekidding (AO3, Twitter and livejournal). Also please-be-kidding on tumblr.

(Toes the dust with my crappy sneakers.)

Do you like stuff? Yeah? Me too.

I know I've been very quiet. Between original fic and roleplay on tumblr, and a general loss of interest in Alaric from the fandom (maybe that will change now?) I haven't been as motivated for fanfic, but there is some new stuff coming out, mainly on AO3, so come visit there sometime. I prefer the layout and there isn't a limit on ex pli cit content. Find me at Archiveofourown (google it if you don't know it - can't put urls here), where my name is pleasebekidding.
