All students shall bow before me! I am Willow Earlyborn of the House Zietman, The Often Burnt, Queen of the Anvils and the First Femmes, Lady Regnant of the Seven Forges, Knowledgeable Instructor (Islay at The Steel Yard said it, so it’s true!) and Mother of Silly Dragons!

I do not suffer fools gladly… ;D

If anyone knows who the original artist is of the painting, please let me know? I really like it! 😀
