Welcome to my keep! My name is Sue. I'm an artist, photographer, anglophile, ardent reader (Tell me a story!), film buff, music fanatic, and all-around-omnivore-of-the-world-around-me. Under the cover of superficial cynicism (I'm old enough to know better), I'm actually an insufferable optimist. I live in the October Country and keep a Halloween tree decorated and lit year-round. I adore Ray Bradbury, Douglas Adams, Neil Gaiman, ghost stories, fan fiction, fan art, Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, children's literature, Steampunk, artists, musicians, poets, writers, photographers, philosophers, and anyone who just has something to communicate.

In the 8 months since I began my adventures in blogging, I’ve been contacted twice and asked by the owner/creator to remove a gif that I reposted, instead of reblogged. Those who follow me or visit my blog regularly will already have noticed that I’m almost obsessively scrupulous about crediting anything I post for the source and for ownership. Very rarely, when all my research fails to turn up this information for a particularly exceptional image or gif, I will repost it in the hope that the owner will contact me, and I can properly reblog the image/gif. In both cases, I promptly deleted these gifs at their owner’s request. No arguement. No attitude. No malice or disrespect intended. I simply couldn’t think of any other way to source these gifs. From the feedback I’ve received, I understand that not all reposters are as benign as I am, or as willing to comply with an image/gif-owner’s request to remove the repost and reblog the image/gif. In both cases where the gif owners contacted me, I was not only able to properly reblog the gif, but also discovered 2 more amazing blogs to follow. I do, however, understand the problem that reposting causes for the owner/creator of an image/gif, and will no longer repost as a means of locating the owner/creator/source. My apologies to anyone I’ve offended.
