I am so very glad that people are enjoying this quiz and finding it
thought-provoking and fun too.  DWJ is delighted: she asks me to thank you
all for doing it and telling her about it (via printouts -- I do hope
nobody minds!) and sharing her pleasure.

I'm having a terrible time not saying too much when people are speculating
about why they got who they got; I sort-of know all the answers because of
having typed them in, and I mustn't let on.  Another drawback for me is
that I can never "try to be" any of the characters because I wouldn't be
able to help cheating by accident, and so I shall never discover how well
or badly I really know the characters.  :-(

For what it's worth, when I made an effort to forget all I had typed and
tried to answer just for myself (sending my answers by email to someone
with web), I came out as Romanov; but even then, when I was about halfway
through I found I was thinking, "I bet I end up as Romanov on these

oh well.  I shall just have to enjoy vicariously, however that's spelt.
