Escapism is nineteen-year-old Alexandrina Brant’s forte, be that in snuggling down on the sofa for an episode of Endeavour, dancing to thirties swing whilst being Treasurer of the society’s accounts, or roleplaying Lady Summer in her NeoVictorian gear.
And don’t forget writing. Forever listed as her ‘third-favourite’passion, writing is doing well for itself, since it never cares to leave Alex’s mind. Her main work is a philosophical Fantasy Romance about lovers separated in different realities due to a broken clock. For a list of her current active (ie. non-abandoned) work-in-progresses, see the page under the ‘books’ tab.
In her non-existent spare time, she plays primarily as Chaser for the Reading Rocs Quidditch team, sings lyrical mezzo-soprano in the Reading University chamber choir, and is forever looking for the right match with whom to share a fine pinot grigio.
Other than that, her facetious tongue would love to learn Italian, despite studying a BA in Psychology and Philosophy. In June 2014, she was confirmed into the Catholic Church, and, as such, religion occasionally infuses her writing.
Interesting and novel things about me:
I am a tachophobe, which means even standing near fast moving objects (eg. rollercosters, trains) brings me out in a sweat and heavy breathing.
I own (so far) two wigs, and love the feel of long hair on my shoulders. My weakness is red hair.
I have been told I am the spitting image of River Song (from Doctor Who. See top photo). I’m not sure about that, but we do have the same crazy hair.
My lucky number is 12, and 36 is an awesome number.
I am the most typical Taurus you will meet. I am the bull in the china shop. Oh, and I have a weakness for starsign and tarot readings, despite not actually believing in them.
