This is a Terribly Secret Brotherhood for Terribly Secret Geniuses.


Descendant of jackdaws and deported Victorian con men, Spyderfyngers is a Masters English student, a daughter of Gibraltar and the Queen’s Navy. Shy, obsessed, probably not listening, this semi-professional invalid loves art, mysticism and the nasty bits in history. Please don’t ask her to do sums.

No drama llamas, please. We’re British.


"I did not say that it was possible; I simply said that it happened." - Sir William Crookes

"The time of my departure is approaching.
Nigh is the hurricane that will scatter my leaves!
To-morrow, perhaps, the wanderer will appear -
His eye will search for me round every field,
And will, - and will not find me."
-- Ossian.
