So - I've been meaning to write this post since August. Yeah - I know! - it's November....! lol!

Anyway.

For those last brave few LFN fans still reading livejournal.....if you remember, I began my life as a writer of fanfiction with a story called (inelegantly to the max) "Mrs. Sam." I don't think it is on the web anywhere anymore, sadly. Anyway - it was an AU set in northern Ontario at the turn of the last century. It was based on a true story/myth from a real place where my family has had a fishing camp in the Ontario 'bush' for fifty years. In the opening section of the story (featuring me! lol!) I wrote the version of the story as I had always heard it.

Well - this past summer, I was given the chance to read a version of the 'real' story, in the form of a slim biography based on the letters of the real "Mr. and Mrs. Sam."

Below the cut, if you're interested! - the version I learned as a romantic girl child and wrote for my first story years ago, then the 'real' story as I read it in Mrs. Watson's own words this past summer. Her real name was Alice Watson.
