About

* Mostly harmless, though with a tendency to try and put Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy quotes and references into as many sentences as possible.

* Mad about football (soccer, for all you Americans/associates of America) and cricket.

* The current President of @Author_Games, the not-quite-official writer games account! Accept no imitations.

* English Literature student a.k.a. workshy layabout a.k.a. likely to be unemployed for a while. Unless I conquer my fears of the corporate literature system and actually get around to attempting to get published.

* Feel free to say hi! I don't bite. Unless you're shoving pointless advertising/ read requests/ fan requests in my face, in which case you will a) be reported and b) risk getting an angry tirade full of long and complicated words that I just looked up to try and make myself sound clever. Or I might decide I just don't want to waste my time on you.

@TheDarkHorse He's alive, just trying to make friends with Erik xD

There need to be inside and outside stresses to create different sorts of conflict. If it was just them running away it'd be boring, especially in the chapters where there isn't any fighting or anything, so there had to be something to threaten the fragile stability so far.

Haha, I did think that might be the clincher as to solving Lincoln's origin! And I'm glad you think that it's good characterisation :P
