A few years ago I was introduced to some phenomenal people who changed my life. I would like to thank my scribe, niankhsekhmet, who is an amazing screenwriter and producer, as well as those who are largely responsible for my being here tonight. To Hsu Danmei –civ_barbarian you may be a ruthless banker and a warlord of a businessman, but you have always been my dearest friend. To allfor_one, Athos, you are amazing and I will always bless you and your talents. And most of all, my thanks go to my husband, all_forme. Sebastien, without you none of these awards that I’ve won over the last few years would mean nearly as much.
*holds up award* Thank you!
Mun Note: I wish to thank everyone for the well-wishes, cards and gifts on my birthday yesterday. One of the most wonderful things about the Internet is the ability to meet and to interact with so many fantastic people. If wealth could be measured in friends and loved ones, I would be one of the wealthiest people alive. It makes me absolutely humble to know each of you.
Thank you for all that you do!

“I say that if a woman can only have power through a man, then let it be with the most powerful man she can find.” –Attila
Any power I have gained I got by wits and my Will or because I took it as I saw fit. Certainly not merely because I allied myself with a powerful man. As a woman and a sovereign, I resent the idea that my sex is of no use except as a consort to a male authority figure Let a man find his power on his own. And if I find him worthy I may be inclined to take him as an ally. Where I come from, no man may rule but through the High Lady, and only then as her Consort. I have, in my very long and immortal life, known many a powerful men. And interestingly enough, one or two of them are still around in my life. The man that I chose as my husband and consort was not the most powerful man. However, he certainly was one of the most feared in all of France. The fact that I love him is a given. I hope that he shall forgive me for saying that the fear he caused, became as the fear of me. His power was in a different form, and it has proven to be most useful. Continue reading
Now, maybe you all can shut up. For the record; my choice for President was Bill Richardson because of his voting record on both Immigration and Indigenous issues. I am still as of yet undecided, but I will say this: any candidate’s stand on Indigenous issues is how my vote will be decided. If he cannot deal with that then he or she cannot be entrusted with anything else – at all. It’s a nearly five hundred year-old stain that needs to be addressed.
My mother never lied to me. At least she never did that I was aware of. She was a truly good person. My father, on the other hand, from whom I have inherited my Unseelie blood – he was not-so-good. It took an act of Will on Morgienne’s part to even get him to acknowledge the fact that he was my father. He would not be forsworn and actually say that he had not known my mother. He knew that he had – and so did everyone else. And I was the result of their illicit liaison. He did not lie – I will give him that. However, his allegations inferred that he highly doubted that he was the only possibility toward being my sire. In end, irrefutable proof was provided and Gan Ceanach was forced to acknowledge that indeed, I was his daughter.
I suppose one could argue that keeping such secrets, or harbouring such nonchalance is in and of itself tantamount to a lie. I do not necessarily agree. He and I still do not speak often, and when we do, our relationship is strained at best. We always skirt around the issue as to why he and I can never be a family. I guess in a way, those are lies, too.

1. How about a brief introduction?
I am Christina, or Xina. I have a son who is in college and live in a log cabin in the woods.
2. What got you into fan fiction (and/or adopting muses)?
It all started on a website that I am part owner of, panhistoria.com. I got sucked into an online interactive “novel”, Ile de Torture, which was a takeoff of the pirate film, “Cutthroat Island. Somehow the POTC characters got put in there, too. Even then I was writing OC’s rather than canon characters. Really, the first canon character I took up was Ardeth Bay from the “Mummy”, fandom after a friend left online. It gave me the chance to practice my phoneticized Egyptian Arabic. 😉 I still do some POTC stuff, on occasion, mainly with Barbossa or Jack Sparrow.
3. What kind of fan fiction do you write?
I really don’t do much at all, however, right now, I am doing a little of the Dumas fiction. I do really love The Three Musketeers. There is a bit of crossover going on with the Highlander folks since my muse is an Immortal in her own way, being Fae and all and most of her friends are Immortals (mostly OC’s) as well. I have done some story lines CSI fanfic with grissom_tm and I really had a very good time with that.
Technically, Dumas was a fanfic writer.
What they do not often tell you is that even in the Church, the ring of marriage is symbolic of the collar of slavery. Ask any priest who is not the mouthpiece of his superiors, and at an unguarded moment they will tell you this is so. Of course, some clever fellow thought it much better if they could tie that miniature symbol of alleged sentiment and assured servitude to some ‘ancient legend.’ The whole idea that the ring finger was believed by the Ancient Egyptians or Babylonians to be tied directly in a line to the heart is a complete lie.
