Your result for The Who Would You Be in 1400 AD Test...
You scored 16% Cardinal, 56% Monk, 59% Lady, and 38% Knight!
You are a moral person and are also highly intellectual. You like your solitude but are also kind and helpful to those around you. Guided by a belief in the goodness of mankind you will likely be christened a saint after your life is over.
You scored high as both the Lady and the Monk. You can try again to get a more precise description of either the Monk or the lady, or you can be happy that you're an individual.

Masque of queens pages
passing to & fro....
Twilight...the hour that both worlds entwine upon eachothers edge...
Like knarled overlapping branches of an ancient tree...its knowledge, its magic, both hidden...
A step...just one small step could lead you into another twilight...
As Alice was about to expose the lettering of the book the shops doorbell rang.
Alice took a deep breath, sighed and patted the book..'I will be seeing you again soon'.
Upon approaching the shop door she saw a tall, slender, rather pale looking young man in dark clothing staring in.
He was not someone she had seen before.
Alice smiled politely as she opened the door,'I am sorry ...we are closed'
The young mans dark eyes penetrated hers ...
'Mr. Hampton ?' His voice soft, confident .
'I am sorry... Mr. Hampton passed away..... four months ago now......can I help you?'
The young mans jaw tensed, an intense frown came upon his face, not one word passed his lips...
Alice asked if he wanted to come in.
With a slight nod of his head the young man entered and promptly sat down beside the counter.
His counternance expressed that he had been in the shop before.....for a moment there was an awkward silence.
Alice held the ornately decorated key ...it too was fluid in shape, almost like little leaves....beautiful she whispered. The lock on the book matched the elaborate pattern of its key.....upon closer inspection she realised the key and lock were made of silver although now tainted.
The following page was full of symbols except one sentence scribbled in ink, and to her amazement written in English :
- In 1853 the Ossianic Society was founded by Mr. Hammond - to preserve and collect all literature and poems regarding the the land of :
Tír na mBuadha - the land of Virtues ...
Alice smiled, Mr.Hammond was a protector of lore, ancient mythology, of what seems to be the faery....that explains why the young man placed it in his care.
notes from Mr.Hammonds journal of encounter:
Biddy Early knew the name of any person coming to see her and also the reason for their visit, she would only treat them if they had decided to consult her first and not a doctor or priest. Sometimes after examining a person if she deemed the reason for the ailment was not due to fairy enchantments she refused to treat them instead directing them to go to a traditional doctor.
Then of course there is myself, encountering two now.

A pictorial coffee table book in progress for personal pleasure :0)
I thought rather than an altered book
I would attempt altered pages and place them all together with rings, once complete.
In time I will add my own sketches,
and develop the visuals for characters.
This story has been bopping around my head for years and
this is a perfect way of playing with the ideas in an easy visual way.
Here I used my paper dolls as inspiration...
They are not the same characters in any way - but the Twilight theme invokes
the 'feel' I wish to create.
