I was an Sailor Moon fan like 10 years ago or something…

At the time, I also ran an Sailor moon-based website that was all about my Sailor Warrior which I made up, called Sailor Aurora…. every time she transformed, she would call out: “Aurora Moon Power, Transform me!”
And not just that, if she wanted to put on an disguse.. like as an Nurse or whatever, she would just have to say: “Aurora Moon Power! Transform me into an super sexy nurse!”

I used Sailor Aurora and Aurora Moon all over the net for that reason…

and it's stuck with me ever snice.
I'm on hitatus while I redo one of my webcomics. Be sure to check it out when I'n done! :)

My story is strange and bazaar, but all of it is true: Based on my Star Wars Galaxies travels.

See, I started playing SWG more than 3 years ago, with a group of my close friends. I was a human named Baru' Kazad, My friend was a trandotian by the name of Dr' Josh, and my other friend was a rodian…. by the name of Zaneeba. We all were really good at the game (except me who sucked eggs…), But zaneeba grew extremely powerful. So, like any addicted cartoon fanatic, I drew up a comic about our travels called “Star Wars Galaxies”. Zaneeba, in my comic, was an all powerful wizard thing who could easily defeat any foe. He became so powerful in my comic, that not even I could think up how truely powerful he was. And all this power went straight to my friend's head.

After a while, I began to truely understand that zaneeba has become monster, slowly consuming my soul into a black hole of sadness. I quit fighting the power of the monster I created, and became the “zaneeba_slave”.

Now, zaneeba and I have a mutual relationship. I help in his comic, while he helps in mine.
I like to imagine myself as a goblin in a tuxedo. -Zaneeba_slave

Hm, good question. How DID I get this name…my memory is a little fuzzy, and there are two stories about it.

Story 1: A long time ago, I made a character called ‘Twin’: a mass-murderin', cult-leadin', red-haired-Goku-spiked-evil-eyed bastard. Pretty surprising, since I am and always have been a fairly un-angry person. A few years in the heat of puberty, but yeah. I sorta saw this character that I had made as my opposite: my ‘twin’. Hence the name.
A bit later, I registered an email account as ‘neutraltwin’. Thinking that was too wanky when I signed up to DD (when the character was still in use), I just shaved it down to ‘Twin’.

Story 2: I'm a massive hypocrite, always in two minds, and very indecisive. I'm also an ardent fan of the concept of duality: good, evil, that sort of thing. So I used that to reflect my personality.

Spritely - for all your funny needs.
Total Immersion - for all your Pokemon-centric pseudo-romantic story needs.

Something for everyone!

The name kitsunekage came from a character I played in a naruto rpg forum. I wanted a name that implyed stealth and cleverness. I eventually met a guy that makes m.u.g.e.n. games that wanted to do a comic. He pointed me to this place, so I kept the name he knew me as.

I've actually been through many names, but here's my story:

I started out with the name Matrix… when I found that is was overly used I switched to Anubis, then to Fable.

For a while, all was good… then I remembered KOTOR. I loved the name Darth Revan and I just had to have it… but then I also played Unreal Championship, and I wanted to name myself Priest because it sounded cool. After a wee bit of thinking, I compromised and named myself Priest_Revan (or Pri3stR3van).

Why? Hm. Well, as some know(and others cringe at), “Magick” is a spelling of magic that some New-Agers, particularly of the witch variety, use to term their spellcraft, or rather, the energy that's used for it. It's no big surprise, then, when I say that I'm a Pagan. Formerly Wiccan (which apparently, my web browser things I'm misspelling).

As for Lorelai, it's sort of a misspelling of lorelei, which is(as far as I remember) the name of a siren in a legend. I'm a big fan of sirens, actually, and Lorelai has the same starting letter as my name: Lindsay. So, I created the name “MagickLorelai”, originally as a handle on DeviantArt. I kept it when I moved here, to Drunk Duck.

Looking back, it's kinda silly. ^^; I don't really spell magic with a K anymore. (And for the record? I didn't misspell a bunch of other words to be cool, like others do: Yanno, Wytch, Ravyn, etc. It was just for me to differentiate between stage illusion and the “real Thing”).

And no, I didn't name myself off a character of Gilmore Girls. I don't WATCH Gilmore Girls, and am only aware of this because people've come to me asking about it.

Man, I loved reading the responses on this thread!

Roguehill was created when I was in a beginning photoshop course and we had an assignment to create a CD cover for a fictional band. I thought and came up with Roguehill off the top of my head. I liked it because it could be a place where bad-guys are buried (like “boot hill”), or (and even better) it could be a hill that just decided to go roming one day. I liked the idea of waking up and there was a hill I'd never seen before, just looking like it had always been there. Strangely enough, that actually happened to me later, but that's another story.
I need to put this in my comic somehow..)

Fox-: I like them, shamelessly, the word alone is like a drug to me. So I figured I'd see what it was like to be high all day.

-man-: Needed something to connect the first and last words, figured it was the one thing gender was good for.

-Zeo: A gaming alias I use. It popped into my head ages ago, and fit into the three letter initial space, while still being complete, and I figured it was completely original.
I later discovered that it's taken everywhere.

Although, nowadays it's about as important to me as my legal name, so I just use it for all my metaspace accounts. Not too bitchy about what people call me, so this policy arose that enabled people to give me whatever handle they wanted to, since I never really remember others for their names anyways.

It's got plenty history though, unfortunately piles of which reside in my earlier internet years, where I was really not myself at all. When I decided to be ‘myself’ more (very recently, actually), it seemed appropriate to keep it and accept the mistakes.

I am bored at work, so I will play this game because I just read everyone else's and I was amused. You guys are all just messed up. >_< Plus it's a good time to inform you all that I am, in fact, female. People seem to miss that somehow.

My screen name is a meld of IRL and IC. Genius, I know.
Iago happens to be my favorite Shakespearean Villain (not the parrot, DAMN YOU ALL!)
I used the name to play a seemingly 14 year old immortal in a Highlander RPG when I was 12. *hides in shame*

Jester was a nickname given to me by this guy in high school who considered himself the King of our school, so since I amused him I was therefore his jester. …the logic still confounds me. I took it on as a radio tag at Boy Scout Camp (yes, I'm still a girl. Girls can be Boy Scout Camp Leaders, yo!) I think I even wore jester hats in high school. Wow…. the dumb things we do when we're young and stupid…

Now I am all-purpose-cool “Iago Jester” for all hobby-intensive-purposes. My professional ID is usually “alsn,” which is just the shortening of my name. *shifty eyes* So clever!

Well, that efficiently sucked up 10 minutes of my life. Sweet!

Actually Zac's the reason for my user name.
In eighth grade I made my character Keish(I missed spelling Quiche correctly by a mile X3) and Zac told me I couldn't name her that cause Quiche was a food that you had to take seriously…or something along those lines. And overtime I started spelling it right and it just sort of stuck.

I have dyslexia (a learning disorder commonly associated with reading backwards), and my real name I'll let you guess. My dad wouldn't let me use my real name, so I used this, and I've always liked it because it says nothing about me that can't change.

I have had a lot of nick names given to me from my faimly (my least favorite were Princess Belly Flop(I'm a guy) and Fat Cal.)and my friends (most recently Kitty). My faimly called me Bocaj a little, but ever scince I used it online my friends jumped the band wagon.

This username's my pen name. Nothing special about that, really…

I do go by another screenname sometimes, though: Zephir, and all variations thereof. Really, I've been about all of them… Zeph… Zephie… PrincessZeph… long story on that one…

I took it from a character from a fanfic I was working on years ago. Said character had gotten it on a variation of Zephyr, as in Zephyr Cape in FF6(j)… this was before me or my brother found out what it meant, or that it was an RHCP song.

My friend calls me by Zeph, never by my real name. =P

It was about a year ago, I was 12, and I found out that the word “gopher” sounded kinda cool. I was obsessed over fire since I was, what, 8? So I adopted the nickname Scorch( Unfortunately nobody calls me that D: ). So, I found sprite comics. Megaman: The lost chronicle, than BnG, than I saw an ad for the Ultimate Sprite Comic( Now dead ). I read that, than I drew an odd creature that looked like this: at 11:30 PM and called it “The Scorch Gofer” and accidentally misspelled gopher. I joined the USC forums and Scorchgofer was the first name to come to mind, so it carried over here when I came.
