Some random quotes...

"I don't believe in it anyway."
"What?"
"England."
"Just a conspiracy of cartographers, you mean?"
- Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead

NOTE: Wyndriders is currently under intensive revision, I know I haven't written on this in quite a while but I promise to get back to it. I also have some artwork for it which will be posted on my livejournal, under the same pen name, at some point.

Love to all,
