I'm Simon and, like everyone else, I'm rubbish at introductions. I'm 23, from the Death Valley, CA area, and I'm Native American (which I only mention because just when I think I don't need to, it becomes a necessity).
I'm a writer, most of my historical research centers on the American Civil War, Restoration France, Slavic mythology, the Beat Generation, and various philosophy. I'll probably be annoying everyone with a lot of questions around here, so if you're well-versed in any of these things and willing to answer tons of obnoxious questions, feel free to let me know!
I'm on Tumblr and AIM if anyone would like to socialize outside the forum.
