Ins reckons that the “descriptive!Name” thing could have a coding / programming origin (her Fri 6th Apr entry). Sounds viable to me. I’ll have to investigate that further. Oh, I don’t think I mentioned it before, but Ins writes cracking fanfic – it lives here.
Carpelumen.com is Messina’s site directory. She’s cut down on the quantity of sites she runs over the last few months (and I wish I could bring myself to do that!), but the quality remains the same – all her sites are visually stunning, and chock full of content (except for the cliques, of course *g*). Her Faith / Eliza Dushku site, Dahlia, is particularly worth a loooong look.
