Hello and thank you.
I'm buckbeakbabie, you can call me Beaky (most people online do, and a good few in real life now too). I have spent a lot of time here lately, and finally joined because I wanted to thank you all for being a wealth of knowledge. I don't know if I should admit this, but I'm working on a novel about a fiction royal family, and I was completely lost as to a lot of the details before I found this place. I didn't know enough, but was very happy to find a forum full of experts.
You've all been a BIG help already, with information, reference pictures, links to documentaries I never knew existed, etc, etc. So thank you very much!
