When life gives you lemons...


The really annoying thing is not being able to find sources for things, so you have to make stuff up and then you have no idea whether it's accurate or not. If it is, good for you. If it isn't, which is more likely, then you've just turned your work into an anachronism stew - or worse, the characters behave in ways inappropriate for the setting. This is bad enough in fanfiction anyway, but if the characters aren't just OOC but don't behave in ways any normal person would, it's rather troublesome, to say the least.

Forgive me my errors, for I looked all over for the information and couldn't find any. I tried hard, I really did, but if there are any medievalists out there reading this, I prefer advice to flames, 'kay?
