Over on the Fairy Tale Novel Forum, Lady Rose pointed out that it is just about six months since we started the very popular "virtual order of Knights and Ladies of the Sacra Cor."
The Sacra Cor is one of the dorms of the fictional Mercy College, the main setting of Regina Doman's book "Waking Rose." The guys who inhabit it are a hilarious mixture of knights, ninjas, chivalry and random craziness. In honor of this amazing group we fans created our own online version of the order.
In true Sacra Cor tradion, we have covered everything from Chivalry to Piracy, with trebuchets, Jane Austen, and the exact location of the Midwest thrown in.
In honor of this anniversary, Lady Rose typed up a list of all the topics we've covered, and I'm posting them here of an example of the fun we have over on the forum...
