Introduction Ruby O'Degee is a fictive author and storybuilder, penned by Ann Dickerson. In the tradition of characters developed for telling stories (Sherlock Holmes, Marco Polo, Cynthia Rawlings), Ruby was first made a character for a journal in 1994, and later represented by an avatar (fall of 2003). Ruby is much better known than her typist, author and benefactor, a fact that pleases Ann. When Ruby or Ann are asked about her decision to let a fictive speak for her, she responds with the poetic answer of W.B. Yeats --- The Mask---- "PUT off that mask of burning gold/ With emerald eyes."/ "O no, my dear, you make so bold/ To find if hearts be wild and wise,/ And yet not cold."/ "I would but find what's there to find,/ Love or deceit."/ "It was the mask engaged your mind,/ And after set your heart to beat,/ Not what's behind."/ "But lest you are my enemy,/ I must enquire."/ "O no, my dear, let all that be;/ What matter, so there is but fire/ In you, in me?" /
