25 years old, graduated from University of Architecture and Urban Planning "Ion Mincu" Bucharest, Romania, currently studying for her master degree in Restoration of Historical Monuments and Sites. Passionate about historical studies and avid manga reader decided in 2009 to start a series set in the 19th century Principalities of Valachia and Moldavia (to later unite in 1859 and to become the Kingdom of Romania several years later).
Throughout the classic Romanian fairytale structure the hero encounters various fantastic creatures and characters that help him in his quest.
One of these characters is traditionally described as an old lady sometimes named but most of the times nameless. In those cases when the granny in question is named she's referred to as Saint Sunday or Saint Friday and rarely Saint Saturday. Yes, Romanian folk created this antropomorphic personification (to quote T.Prachett)of the week days in form of kind and helpful grandmas. Why just Sunday, Friday and Saturday and not the rest of the weekdays? There are personifications of them as well just that they don't make an appearance.
Also there's a kindness degree when we're talking about them ranging from Saint Sunday the most generous and helping to Saint Friday.
However in my story the granny is neither of the saints even though she does play that role in helping out poor clueless Mihai on his quest. It will be revealed later on what exactely the granny is as it dawns on Mihai what he must do with the objects collected so far.
Far too much talkative this time so I should just end it here.
