I'm Tereesa, one of the mods of Almost Paradise. I would like for you to meet my new critters:
This is Amelia Peabody Emerson. Peabody is her maiden name, Emerson her husband's surname. She is going to be the most displaced of all my characters by far. She is from 1895 Victorian England, and quite unhappy there with the way women are forced to live. Clothing (corsets!), political stances, relationships in general; women do not have it all that great. She is fortunate to have a husband who treats her as an equal (though she most often has the upper hand) and also has a young son, nicknamed Ramses. She is an Egyptologist- or rather the wife of one who does more than her share of the work, and while England is her home, Egypt is her heart. She often found herself wrapped up in mysteries, all too often involving dead bodies, and is on a comfortable standing with Cairo law enforcement (who probably wish more often than not that she would just let them do their job). Amelia has a strong personality, and is impossible to miss, or ignore, in any situation. She is certainly in for a bit of culture shock and likely to need a bit of help acclimating, whether she wants it or not.
River Song (doctors_sweetie) is a time traveler and wife of The Doctor, the most famous Time Lord ever to have existed. Her life revolves around him, to the point where she went to prison for his murder, even though he was perfectly alive and well, just to protect him. None of this is to say she is a doormat, far from it in fact. She is quick with a gun, and fiercely protective, especially regarding those she cares about. River is flirtatious and fun, and not always to be trusted.
Aziraphale (winged_bookworm) is an Angel, Principality Class. He is Guardian of the Eastern Gate and a general do-gooder, as most angels are. Unless he is being influenced by his... friend?...Crowley. The two of them go all the way back to the Garden of Eden. He's been through a lot, spending over 6000 years on Earth, and fairly recently helped stop Armageddon. He has a penchant for fine food, good wine, and little places where everyone knows his name. He collects first edition books, the older the better. "Collects" might be a weak word, hoards is more like it. He was running a used book store before finding himself on the island, but he rarely sold anything unless he was desperate for money.
I will likely have a fourth coming soon, but he is still in the application process, and I never know if the mods will like my take on him. So I will introduce him when he's all set and approved.
