So we're watching the movie 300, and I've come to the following conclusion: Xerxes is a Goa'uld.
For those of you interested in my so-called literary career (self-deprecating humour for the win!), I've uploaded a whole new version of my website. I'm going to be putting my fiction up on Sky Tribe, but I probably won't put all the old stories on there (though they will remain on LJ). The New Rome saga will still be up at bellumaeternus with subscription.
