It's actually the latter, for what that's worth. Except for one or two, mayhaps.
I changed from my old handle to Ralts Bloodthorne on old 300 and 900 and 14.4K baud modem BBS's.
I've kept it since then.
However, it also lacks creativity altogether because, simply, I ripped it straight from a book I read. No-one has ever brought it up, and if they could even remember even reading the shlockfest of a book the likelihood that my username was a complete coincidence is almost infinitely more likely.
Also, a name without any numbers or anything, just a simple name, looks clean as hell.
I've played plenty of characters in plenty of games, but these two are MY characters. Anyone into tabletop gaming will know what I mean. There are certain characters that you make that you get emotionally attached to.
Switch is actually the main character for the series I plan to write on this site.
my name comes from my desire to write tales of heroes. and stories of Bada**'s.
And my bio is a warning that I might not finish what I write... I um don't always do. which I just thought i should give fair warning about.
LambentTyto Wrote: Well, I like Gears of War, and you fight Lambent exploding locusts in the second game, so Lambent. I also like Tyto owls, so, Lambent Tyto. For my pen name Waraji-sama, it's basically a goofy play on the fact my main character wears waraji sandals in my book Wakiagaru. They're like a rough spun hemp type of sandal they used to wear in Japan. Waraji-sama means "lord sandal" in Japanese. The reason I use such a goofy pen name is that when I take writing seriously, I can't do it. I have to sort of treat it as a joke, so, Waraji-sama!
Those effing Lambent Humans in Gears of War 3, amirite?
That email and username became me main ones. Everyone knows me as Vertica/Verty/Vert and it's hard to imagine meself without it.
The profile picture is me but glitches to high heavens. I enjoy glitching pictures because the same thing can give infinite results.
Me bio is either "I can write this later" or "I really like Pepsi and coffee...
And I also *thing I do on the site*"
And that's because I am lazy.
Good question btw.
This is a new account, I previously went by Saiph, who was the name of a character in the story I had posted then. I only went with Saiph because I wasn't sure what name I wanted to go by at the time.
After doing a lot of rewriting, I decided to pull my story and I recreated this account so that the story is tied to my actual name if I decide to publish it on Amazon or Audible after its finished.
