To know the truth of history is to realize its ultimate myth and its inevitable ambiguity.
This is the fannish landing spot of Carmarthen, a fanfiction writer inexplicably named after a city in Wales. This website exists primarily for sharing fandom-related historical resources, recs, and other such things, as well as serving as an index of my more recent fanfiction. I may be variously found on the internet at
I am pretty multifannish, with a general preference for book and movie canons, preferably historical, fantasy, or science fiction. At present, my main fandom is Les MisÚrables, followed by the historical novels of Rosemary Sutcliff. I've also written a fair bit of fanfiction collectively for The Eagle, Tamora Pierce's Tortall novels, and Star Wars, as well as numerous other fandoms.
I read and write a wide range of things, including m/m and f/f slash, het, polyamory, and gen. I'm usually most interested in the canon setting, and characterization is more important to me than kinks or narrative tropes--I like both, but only if I feel they fit the characters and their context.
History is forever and always my number one fandom, though, and the main purpose of this website is to share the awesome historical resources and tidbits I come across, in hopes that they may prove useful or interesting to other writers or artists.
