    Haha, nice of you to ask.

    Well, I am part of a historical reenactment association called Terra Dacica Aeterna, which means that for the entirety of a summer, I travel all around Europe reenacting the life of ancient Romans and Dacians (barbarians north of Danube that lived in present day Romania). Basically, we live, we eat, we sleep, and we do workshops and activities exactly how the romans and barbarians 2000 years ago did.
    Everything we do, from our armours, our weapons, to our battles are 100% authentic and real. That means, real steel forged in manners as close to the original techniques as possible.

    And in this picture, I was at a reenactment event somewhere here in Transylvania (where I live), in a place close to Alba-Iulia. It was very rainy, dreadful and foggy that day, and I got the chance to meet some falconers, who had a raven. Since I love ravens (as you can see from my fursona and all), I immediately wanted to experience how it is to be up-close to such magnificent creatures.
    So I spent an entire day with this raven you see in this picture alongside me. Like I said, they are magnificent and elegant creatures, with eyes full of life and curiosity. I felt fulfilled to know I had the chance to hold such a bird in my hand.

    One of my friends (which you see credited in the photo), had took this photograph of me to immortalize the moment, and she gave it to me on my birthday ha.

    Wow, that is way cool! Sounds like an exciting hobby! And yeah, ravens are awesome. They are so smart!

    Yeah, it's glorious.
    We have working siege engines, catapults, ballistae, and countless other things too.
    Basically, when we travel around, it's like a small army/legion moving about.

    I love the faces people make when they see us on the streets during marches and such. It's... priceless.

    Ahh, yeah. We got a lot of snow here . It took a while, but it started melting at the start of March. About time too, we got so much during February, I'm sick of snow for the year.

    You look pretty good yourself! Although yeah, the camera didn't take a good picture. A picture's a picture though, even if it's a little blury!
