Hallo all!
A little background on me -

My Name: Victoria Blythe Sullivan

My Age: 21

My Heritage: 1/2 Irish (from my father's side) and my mother is American with a really complicated mix of basically everything Eastern European. So I'm an Irish/English-American hybrid, really.

My Hometown: I was born near Bristol, but we moved toLondon when I was a baby and I grew up there.

My Current Location: I'm staying with my aunt in Ohio right now for a few years and going to school here. It's a bit charming. Not much different from London weather-wise, but less smog and much much smaller.

My Occupation: as I said, I'm attending school here, and that's quite time consuming enough without having a job. Fortunately I have my aunt and my mum and dad to pay my way through University.

My Hobbies: writing, clearly. Also reading. I especially love Poe and Shakespeare and have grown to love Robin McKinley as well. I want to teach someday and am pursuing a degree in English as well as Education.

My Stories: Two currently, but I hope to post another one soon, so I shall give you a preview.

A River Of Innocence Lost - a romance based in a fictional world much like the Middle Ages.
The two basic ethnicities in this story are as follows: the Nalli, a peaceful, religious people with blonde or light red hair and blue or gray eyes. The Tanyu, a dominant race with brown or black hair and dark gray, brown, or black eyes that have conquered the Nalli and frequently conduct raids and send out war parties to keep them in check. It is a long-standing culture war.
Saraia, a 15-year-old Nallian girl is captured by a war party and taken to the castle of the Tanyu king, where she faces a dark future. One young soldier witnesses her pain and, having a dark connection to it, does everything he can to help her and falls in love with her. It's very dark. You have been warned.

The Flame of Tanyula - DOWN FOR ABOUTTWO MONTHS. DUE BACK DECEMBER18TH. THhe sequel to River of Innocence. That's all I'll tell you for now, so as not to give anything away. However, I will give a couple of clues that only the most astute of you may understand, if you've paid close attention: 1) Nial has taken sick, and may be on his deathbed. 2) A gypsy camp outside the city captures the attention of sixteen-year-old Eavienne Konarin, as does a handsome gypsy boy, Enrik Estelian (two clues hidden in that one) and 3) forms of schizophrenia can result from a traumatic past... think "Tender is the Night" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Anyhow, it's the continuing story of Saraia and Konah, and (can you believe it?) it's more tragic than its prequel, as Saraia struggles to mantain her sanity. I hope you enjoy it.

Preview: Wild Child -
A teenaged boy just moved from England sees a young lady out his window nearly every day. She dances in the rain and lets the wind carry her anywhere it pleases. He comes to know her and discovers a carefree heart and a simple faith. But what happens when there is a shooting at the school they attend? In honor of the terrible tragedy at Columbine High School.

So there is my bio, I hope it was useful to you. Please read my stories. Thank you!

For your enlightenment:

BRITS REVOKE USA INDEPENDENCE

To the citizens of the United States of America:

"In light of your failure to elect a competent President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (excepting Kansas, which she does not
fancy).

Your new prime minister, Tony Blair, will appoint a governor for America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed. To aid in the transition to a British Crown Dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:

You should look up "revocation" in the Oxford English Dictionary. Then look up aluminum, and check the pronunciation guide. You will be amazed at just how wrongly you have been pronouncing it. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'favour' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters, and the suffix -ize will be replaced by the suffix -ise. Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. (look up vocabulary).

Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as "like" and "you know" is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as US English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take account of the reinstated letter 'u' and the elimination of -ize.

You will relearn your original national anthem, "God Save the Queen."

July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.

You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you're not adult enough to be independent. Guns should only be handled by adults. If you're not adult enough to sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist then you're not grown up enough to handle a gun. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler.

Apermit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.

All American cars are herby banned. They are crap and this is for your own good. When we show you German cars, you will understand what we mean.All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables.Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.

The Former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline) - roughly $6/US gallon. Get used to it.

You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.

The cold tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.

Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to play English characters. Watching Andie MacDowell attempt English dialogue in "Four Weddings and a Funeral" was anexperience akin to having one's ears removed with a cheese grater.

You will cease playing American football. There is only one king of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for rest every twenty seconds or wearing full Kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies).

Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.1 of you are aware that there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable.

You must tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us mad.

An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).

Thank you for your cooperation.
