I love that song. I was raised on The War of the Worlds rather than Moody Blues, and didn't realise Justin Hayward was in both until a friend told me.

Did you ever see The Hunting of the Snark concert? Hayward does a brilliant love song in it. Here's a clip:
Oh I love War of the Worlds too! I'm not familiar with The Hunting of the Snark, what a cool clip! :) I love his voice.

I hadn't realised 'mimosa' had so many meanings. That's a lovely name!

I'm just going to rewatch the whole concert for nostalgia. ;-)

FYI—reading comics can wrap art and literature together beautifully. Depending on what one likes of course.

Oh, forgot to say I’m lousy as being anonymous. Most of my socials, like instagram, FB, twitter are my real name and tumblr, twitter are NFComics. So fairly easy to find because employees got me started in the whole mess. 😄
Do you love Austenland?!? Because I absolutely love Austenland
Totally love Austenland💕 and the sequel. Shannon Hale actually lives in Utah and writes comic books too.

BTW—see the ‘Easter egg’ used for the section sign? If I had it to do over again, I’d use Mr.T :)

This is a fun topic! Really cool to hear the stories.

For fanfiction, I've been ElizaG1 for ummmm twenty years. I had a series of different pen names when I joined Fanfiction.net as a tween, usually related to Harry Potter (like I think I was Eliza Potter for a bit), but then wanted something slightly more normal, so went with Eliza (my middle name is Elizabeth), and then I had to add a 1 because ElizaG was taken. So silly, and now I would want to lop off the 1 but it's been that way for too long.

I like being barelytolerable where I can, as a nod to the 2005 Pride and Prejudice. It's just kinda fun.

Twenty years! What an incredible accomplishment. That's incredible.

thank you! it's just because I was 12 when I first started writing and posting fanfics, LOL. You can still see them on FFN! I like having them still there just because it's history, so I don't take them down but they're obviously written by a kid. I stopped writing in 2007 and then came back in 2020. I'm so glad I did.

I would LOVE to hear the story of why you stopped...and why you came back.
