Claire is used for RP in thetenspot & muses_gonewild -In thetenspot she is relatively canon without much straying unless I get bored. -In muses_gonewild she is all over the place. Some reponses will be canon and some will be AU. All will be marked as somewhat of an explanation so as not to confuse readers. If there are any.
