Welcome, one and all to the journal of narritiveliving! I am called by many names, including: Mikey, Susan, Kit Marlowe, Lady, Swan, Shilo, Thyra, Remus, Bella, Avery, Emily, Seven, Ianto, Ramarien, Esme, and Braclets. You can call me just about any of them, but I most like to be called Seven, Shilo, or Esme. I also used to be known as Alquen, Kami, or Seana, but not so much these days.

I'm attempting to begin a teaching career, working as a governess (but not like that. I've promised myself if I start dancing with chimney sweeps and sliding down bannisters, that I will beat myself to death with my own poker.) This is what the focus of my journal is. I might throw in some fic if I decide, or if you ask nicely.
My life likes to place me into frequent contact (and often disconcertingly at odds) with elements of a world outside the normal and conventional one. Dealing with bad spelling and mistakes in toilet training provides a strong grounding in reality.
And you know what else is a strong grounding in reality? Comments!
