This Is Me

Hi everybody! Welcome to my blog. I actually don’t know what I’m doing here, so if you’re lost, it’s for a good reason!

I am a teenager, sixteen to be exact, an Eastern Orthodox Christian, a home schooler currently attending St. Raphael School classes, an OYANer, and, last but definitely not least, a writer. I love fantasy, especially Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Brandon Sanderson, and Brian Jacques.

I tend to ramble in my writing (see title of blog), and go off in a completely different direction then I originally intended. Despite my love of fantasy, I tend to lean towards historical fiction while writing, especially pre-Norman Invasion England.

The main reason that I have started this blog is to share my writing, from fanfiction to top-ten books lists to Orthodoxy. Also because of Jonny and because I need accountability.

I hope that you all enjoy, and don’t get bored after the first post.

Christ is Risen!
Brianna

 Come, my Light, and illumine my darkness.
Come, my Life, and revive me from death.
Come, my Physician, and heal my wounds.
Come, Flame of divine love, and burn up the thorns of my sins;
kindling my heart with the flame of Thy love.
Come my King, sit upon the throne of my heart and reign there.
For Thou alone art my King and my Lord.
-St. Demitrii of Rostov

  1. Pre-Norman England? I thought I was about the only living person who still studied that in depth for the fun of it. Have you ever heard of the Society for Creative Anachronism?

    1. Woah, I only just saw this. Sorry about that.

      It’s really fascinating, especially that little gap between the Romans leaving and the Saxons and Jutes arriving. Have you ever seen the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle? It’s a goldmine of information.

      Yes! I have. In fact, I’m planning on joining once I can drive myself to meetings and the like. In the mean while I’ve been looking up practically any information relevant to it that’s available online.

      1. Yes! Love the Chronicle. With a period where so many primary sources are lost, one so big and extensive is priceless.

        Which kingdom are you in, do you know? I’m in Northshield.
