Jade is into steam so the steampunk genre suits her fine.
Jade is the second half (and sister) of the steampunk duo of the Jane and Jade Escapades storyline. You can find out a bit of Jade's early days from the Old Skewl steampunk event.

Come come, without a doubt. Jane Austen literary works are always a find in Lady Vee's reticule.
Lady Vee hopes to see you again at the next Pemberley Ball in November.
In this short piece, probably one of the earliest of her surviving Juvenilia, written in her early teens, Jane Austen exuberantly parodies some of the silly sentimental and "heroick" literature and literary conventions of her day.
I found this an interesting bit by Jane as I have not read any of her juvenilia. Although this one is said to be humorous, I found a certain part morbid.
Give it a quick read and tell me what you think.
