So I've been here for a while, but I've never actually introduced myself! Sooo, here it is!
Hi, I'm Roo. You can call me Delaney if you don't like internet names, but I'd prefer Roo for now. I'm a freshmen in college and some of my hobbies include playing flute, playing video games, and rowing. Um... and an interesting fact about me is I occasionally put a ribbon in my mouth and pretend I'm a lizard.... yeah...
Hello. I'm Hunter, and I'm into stuff as diverse as trail riding, critical media studies, perfumery, and microeconomic theory. Also been reading up a lot on gender & sexuality stuff, so there's that. Big fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Mulan.
Which video games do you like? Avery and I are both pretty partial to Dragon Age (though she plays a lot more games than I do).
Oh those are really cool! So you ride horses? I used to ride horses, but quit a while ago... I'm into a lot of math-y and science-y stuff but never really got into economics. Those are really sweet interests though, and I like Avatar and Mulan too! C:
Hmmm.... I like mostly Nintendo stuff like Zelda, Pokemon, and animal crossing. Thus my icon, which was a really quick sketch drawn in an animal crossing style because I got fed up with drawing... hahaha but thanks for your compliments!
Yep. Equestrian here. The family owns some Arabians, so those are what I'm most familiar with.
If you get a chance to take an economics class (and if your school's got a good department) I recommend it. Not a finance class though, unless you like dealing with long messy decimals.
Animal Crossing! Oh man, I remember playing the first one for a while. I planted some trees and then changed the clock around and all the trees got stuck as they were and refused to grow anymore. I'm more of a PC gamer now, with old junk like Knights of the Old Republic (the first one, not the mmo) and Civilization III, but one of my first games was a Spiro game on the gamecube.
Can't believe I forgot to mention Amnesia. Watching the Let's Plays of Amnesia: the Dark Descent is one of the best pastimes ever if you can find one that's not intolerably misogynistic.
hello, i'm avery! i also play flute, though you're probs a lot better roo, and as hunter said i do play a lot of video games. and i am very partial to dragon age (-sends look to avatar-). i'm not too big a fan of shooters, tho, but i've been playing a lot of them recently so idk i might start getting into those. when i do these i realize just how few hobbies i actually have. oops.
and roo your avatar is like the definition of cute like srsly.
when i do these i realize just how few hobbies i actually have. oops.
The trick is to find fancy words to generalize what you're talking about. ex. I say I'm into perfumery, but I don't have the cash to amass a collection or anything, and really all I mean by that is that I like smelling things and making myself smell like things (and asked for Bvlgari Black for Christmas).
@hunter: Ah the tragic moments of time traveling! I just enjoy really cutesy games, I could never really get into PC games, besides like portal. Though I have seen that lets play before, and it's hilarious :3 I have friends that are taking econ, a lot of them say that the intro class is really hard but the upper levels are fine.
avery: Aw, you're probably better than you give yourself credit for. My biggest problem is staying in tune, it's just so easy for your pitch to go down :T And thanks for the compliment! I can probably draw some other peoples characters while I'm home if you wanted...

ah, so that's how you make yourself sound impressive to the masses.
Roo; i'm not too good with the fast technical stuff, or at least i don't think i'm as good at the fast technical stuff, which is unfortunate since that's, like, all concert flutes are. and an annoyance when you're in a group with like ten of them and half don't understand how to volume. tuning is a pain in the butt too like holy damn i just moved the headpiece just a little bit it shouldn't have this much of a difference why do different notes tune so differently ugh. it's a love hate relationship, me thinks. and if you'd be up for doing art for people, i'd pester hunter. we talked about having a board where people can make art/graphics shops for tokens and didn't because we didn't know if anyone would want to do the thing. so yeah. if that's something you think you'd be interested in, pester hunter. c:
Ah, I love the fast notes, kind of. Mostly the ones in orchestra or band pieces are all scales, though the ones that aren't are a pain in the ass. And getting a whole section to play in tune is nearly impossible, because everyone thinks that they're right and not other person's wrong no matter of who's actually right or wrong, so annoying. And they go out of tune so easily. If you just cross your legs, you'll go flat. So irritating :T What style of music do you like to play the most? I personally enjoy a lot of Irish music!
Oh ho, maybe I will. I would be nice to get some tokens :V. But I can only do it when I'm home, because I don't know where the pen to my tablet is and I'm using my sisters... hahaha... I could just open a thread up if that's easier?

especially when they're first/second chair in a high school band. i will forever remember them. it will forever be not-fond memories of me pulling my hair out in the second row with the second flutes (because i volunteered to be back there) as they send me nasty looks because i'm telling them they're too loud, out of tune, and they should probably stop talking. shudders.
um but i have a fondness for slower pieces myself. idk, i just enjoy playing all these lovely chords and actually being able to hear them. i was also really fond of marching season and marching music. less for the marching and more for the music.
feel free to open a thread! c: i know i'd be posting there.

We talked about that, yeah.
Let's see what happens when we wave this magic wand here.
Well hello there! I just posted my first bio so I thought I should pop in here and say hello to everyone. So, I'm Devon and I live in sunny old England with my horse, two ferrets and three corn snakes. I have been RPing on and off for about ten years or so; starting on tabletop (D&D woo!) and then moving onto forum based, but this will be my first supernatural RP for a while so please bare with me!
Outside of writing I love my job (riding for the disabled instructor), music of most types but especially rock, anything sci-fi or fantasy, PC games and baking. I am also an avid crafter and loving making cards, scrapbooks, sewing and pretty much anything else I can have a go at.
I am very much looking forward to getting to meet and write with you all!
If they are allowed to get used to it from a young age most of them are okay with it. Mine are rescues (as are all my animals) and two of them are okay with it but Jayne, the biggest male, can get grumpy sometimes and so I only handle him every so often.
And my horse is an Irish Sports Horse gelding called Tali. He's hyperactive, tough to handle, tough to keep weight on and I'm certain he has dissociative identity disorder, but I love him dearly. He's not at his best in this picture, but it's the only one I have of him on this computer.
Grumpy snakes. xD It sounds like you take good care of them though.
aww. :c Yeah, my Arab mare can be a little snotball sometimes, but I love her too. She's a chestnut with a blaze and she has the opposite problem. She's waaay too fat. Had a founder scare with her a while back.
jayRIOT !: lol well at least there's that then

Hunter: Other than Eli being a pain in the neck again? Not too much, nah.

Hunter: Finally replied to the Ana thread, Avery!
Mar 10, 2014 23:47:59 GMT
Hunter: Well hello Shatteredverse. And huh, that's strange, Azure. I'm not sure what that could be from.
Mar 5, 2014 0:29:29 GMT
Azurelle: Positive. I only use one password for these proboard accounts, and 2 usernames. Besides, it doesn't tell me I entered things wrong. It redirects me to the home page but I'm still not logged in.

Shatteredverse: Hi :)

Feb 26, 2014 22:23:36 GMT
avery: hmm, that's weird. let me check that out.

Azurelle: Was I banned or something? I can't login at all...

Browners//Hellsing: Hi hunter
Feb 25, 2014 20:05:57 GMT
raze: We need more for party for the lost if anyone is interested.
Feb 25, 2014 7:20:31 GMT
jayRIOT !: It might take a minute though; honey just got home and he's going to take up the internet for his PS4 addiction....hahaha
Feb 25, 2014 2:34:00 GMT
jayRIOT !: I could probably come up with something ^^
Feb 25, 2014 2:33:38 GMT
Hunter: They're in a thread in the library right now. Any chance Kaelynn would have a reason to show up?
Feb 25, 2014 2:26:38 GMT
jayRIOT !: Ohh, that sounds fun >:)
Feb 25, 2014 2:21:39 GMT
Hunter: I think Akita, Jordan, and Kaelynn should form a lycan lady club.
Feb 25, 2014 2:00:17 GMT
Hunter: nothin' much. /finally/. I had a lot of schoolwork for a while there. But I'm kind of caught up now.
