I needed to think of something… It has nothing to do with smoking, though, I assure you.

Back when I was a little kid, me and my friend had our own little “world” and my character was always “De Leon Hyrulious” and when I got my first email, drunkduck, ect. Leon Hyrulious just seemed the right choice for me.

I used to draw several eight page comics about a talking pancake, who was named Flap-Jack by my best friend. So when I got tired of the name spyro7000, I made my username on drunkduck flapjack1995, in honor of my old abandoned character. And 1995 is the year I was born.

Three years ago, over spring break…a friend of mine and I went to Floresville and hung out at Dairy Queen every day until I went home. We'd just spend all of our time there getting free refills and chatting. Well, I had some paper and a pen one day…and we decided to draw ourselves as furries (though I really hate furries.) She was a cat-girl and I was a bunny-girl, and we just drew a bunch of comic strips with these characters. This was the first comic I ever drew consistently for over 40 pages (we really got into it.) We decided to call this comic ‘Disgruntled Roommates’ and when I first came to drunkduck, I was going to post it here. But I realized how bad it looked, so I took it down and posted Dying to Live. But it lived on in my username. I couldn't fit ‘disgruntled roommates’ into an SN, so I shortened it to disgruntledrm.

Well my real name, of course, is Matt G.

When i was in college I had a friend named jenny…. when I'd see here i'd say “Jenneeeeeee” much to the annoyance of another friend who would mock this and say Matt geeeeeeee….. which sounded like Mattchee… which stuck….

I chose mine because the obvious spelling for it was taken by so many people…

When I was a lot younger I realized I got shot down a lot by the opposite sex. I also find out they were married, had a boyfriend, had a girlfriend, or that I wasn't worth their time.

So I gave up on the whole idea a long time ago.

Pathetic, I know… :(

My username is based off the original norse words that formed my first name(Eric), ‘Ei’ meaning forever or eternal, and ‘rikr’ meaning ruler or prince. So, it means Eternal ruler, which sounds pretty wicked to me.

Plus, it was either this or ‘Space Nacho’, and I think I grew out of that.

The Fighting Stranger is the name of the next webcomic I'm working on. And being a fighting stranger in a new place isn't the worse thing in the world to be I guess. :)

“Druchii” is my nickname. It has a two fold story to it. It's also the name of the race of dark elves in the Warhammer world, and for many years now I've played that race in many a tabletop battle. And since in most areas there aren't a lot of playes that select that army, they used to call me the Druchii guy. And after I started using it as a name online, it stuck.

The company I was in the Army. Bravo company, 1st of the 102d Armor. I've gotten used to it over the past few years.

Irony: On yahoo the name was already taken by another former member of the unit. We get around.

Hmmm.. the story for my username “Vision” involves a pack of cigarettes, a bunch of vodka mixed with softdrinks and other stuff, and a bunch of people who had the urged to do something stupid as i did. :)

We started around 9pm and by 2am we were all laughing for no reason, talking about poop and even boobies and yes 3 of them were women 4 of us men. that or 3 men and one a form of a living and breathing cigarette entity which was me. School crap had ended and we celebrated for what seemed like the last time. Around 230am i started hallucinating, at least i thought i was..
(Later i was told i had fallen asleep after i puked all over the floor hahaha)
Anyways, I saw a freakin giant blue bird! and i was chasing the the giant blue bird until i apparently flew up following it. Long story short i saw a world colored by simple crayons and drawings on paper, i had had a “Vision” of the Astral world of Art! There I had been enlightened and taught many things by anime characters and cartoon boobs! Finally i held in my hand a great secret! A scroll so devastating that uttering a single word from it would make me a Cartoon God! And as i was about to utter those sacred words.. The ground shook, female cartoon characters started putting their bras back on, the world was ending! And then i woke up lying down on the floor, my clothes soaked with my own puke… :)

Learn from your mistakes, move forward, and never look back.

I chose pantsofdeath back in 1996 as an email address, at the time it was a throwaway joke about the pompous names goth kids were giving themselves on the web, but people liked the name and so I renamed my comic PantsofDeath (at the time it was the Sexy Pants Cartoon page)

Recently (and somewhat annoyingly) some 17 year old from germany has been calling herself pantsofdeath on a number of sites. Ah well. I am due for a new name soon anyway.
Pantsofdeath - old enough to know better

I've had this screen name for 12 years now. It all began when I was posting on the PythOnline boards in 1996. As it was the board for the official Monty Python website, I used a bunch of silly handles like Thomas The Mad 1 Mad 2 Mad 3 or Thomas M-Stop-Ftang-Ftang(etc.) that were quite lengthy. Then I gravitated to the message boards for ViewAskew.com (Kevin Smith's site) and the posters there advised me that a shorter name would be better. So I invented the PyThomas name (Python + Thomas). And it stuck, obviously. But I still like the name…. though on other webcomic boards I've taken to calling myself TLT Thomas to tie myself in with my Times Like This comic.

I used to have a hairless rat named Toki. She was the sweetest little rodent I've ever known and I'll miss how she'd snuggle in my shirts to stay warm. People often though she was really ugly, but I think it's the strangeness that made her so cute… Hmm, I guess that does sound a little like me, but that's not the story (I just realized that now, so it doesn't count).

Anyway, around the same time, a friend of mine started making a comic that he hoped to get on the internet someday. The next year, I started college so I was at the high school less and less. I got a hotmail account by the name of Toki-rat just from a lack of better things to name it and the name followed me to many websites after that.

Then, about a year ago (was it really only a year?) my friend got his comic onto drunkduck. In his excitement, he begged me to join. He was so desprite that he just took my info over the phone and filled out the form for me =P Big mistake. So that's how Toki-rat became Poki_rat. But I don't care anymore.

It's the name of my comic, I remember I had a good reason for calling it that but now i've forgotten it, I think partially i just thought it sounded cool, was controversial and kinda silly. I don't really think that anymore witch is why I actually use me and Satan as charecters.

Okay,Diana(DEE-ana) is my real name.My school nickname is Diana(DAI-ana) because I'm the best of the class in english so my teacher started calling me that.And then it was my friends.And then it was the entire class.So that became my nickname.Well some years ago I had a roleplay character named Clifclaw.But then I got tired of her so I created a new one.I needed a name so I took my nickname,the surname of a family of characters in my comics and a name that started with the same letter as my actual surname:Diana Wulfric Marks,shortened to Diana W.M. or Diana M..After a while I created 4 alter-egos:Erase(A.K.A. Erase the Memories),Crash(A.K.A. Crash-d),Daishin and The Wolf(Shared with several other characters.)

And Diana is the name of the roman godesse of the moon.
Diana>Moon>Werewolf>Wolf wich is my fav animal

Well, once upon a time when I was a little boy, I was on a dock in the Florida Keys. I slipped and fell into the water. I wasn't so good at swimming then. Just as I thought I was done for, a manatee picked me up and carried me ashore. Ever since then, I've had a bond with manatees.

Actually no, I just got high on cocaine in my trailer, and a talking manatee told me to do it.

The weird part is, cocaine shouldn't make people hallucinate.
I am so happy to finally be back home

Well um, when I was younger, there was this Invader Zim forums. I was obsessed with it so I called myself Doomgurl since the word ‘Doom’ was a word I hear often in that show.

People gave me a nicknamed and called me Doomy.

And it suited me just fine cause it sounds like, ‘Do Me’ and Doomy is one kinky bitch.

So there.

My username is the nickname I received when I lived in Japan. “Katsu” as a verb means “to win”. There is actually a long story to go along with it, but the keep it simple: someone there liked my artwork and gave me the nickname.

I use it as my pen name now, and sign all my pages using the character for it.
