Addicted to "Delicate"

For the past week or so I've been wallowing in the life of Rose Weasley who is the main character of the fan fiction novels  "Delicate" and "Still Delicate".

Rose Weasley
     firstly i didn't even wanted to read anything i was supposed to be studying, however once again my meaningless wanderings in the internet(which I do when i'm bored) have payed off.i have stumbled on to a site which is dedicated to harry potter fan fictions so I clicked on one of the most viewed stories and gave it a go and soon I was hooked.

The legend of Lady Godiva


Legend has it that Lady Godiva had taken pity on the local people struggling under the onerous taxation regime of her husband. Much of the levy was Heregeld Tax which funded King Canute’s guard. She pleaded with her husband to alleviate the burden of his people by cancelling the taxes.
He then used her love of art against her by saying that as the ancient Greek and Roman artists worshipped the nude, she should ride through the streets of Coventry naked to celebrate the beauty of the human form. He would then release the people from the taxation.
