    It used to be Kimberley Hyun. Kimberley is my male name backwards (Mick/Kim) and Im in love with the Korean surgery culture so it was wise for me to keep an eye on them. Hyun losely translates to wise.

    But I changed it cause it might actually become my real name and surname after transition so Bubbletea. Cause I love bubbletea and its a wink to Asia. :wink:

    My previous username was VelvetBlade. The velvet part because my nature is velvety-soft and blade because I'm a recovering self-harmer (Yesterday (5 Oct) marked a whole month of no self harming. Before I relapsed, I was self-harm free for 5 years...)

    My current username is based on my birth stone and Chinese astrology sign :grin:

    It was my original name for me after finding out I'm nonbinary, before deciding on Madison.

    Since I'm considering changing my name to Robin, it shows two of the three inspirations (the bandit, Robin Hood, and the bird). The third, which I'm considering adding eventually is Robin DeSanto from Shortpacked!

    I love rats, and I'm gay. ahahaha
    I originally wanted my username to be 'rainbow rat' but misspelled my email (the one I use when I'm doing stuff like reading lesbian fanfics) and was locked out of the account I created and had to make a new one...thus 'the rainbow rat' was born lol

    I looked over at a pile of albums in my apartment and picked a word off of each that sounded nice together. Split, from Split by Lush and Melody from "Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons" by Blonde Redhead.

    I couldn't use my usual username as it contains a chunk of a nickname that I go by in real life and the actual last name I plan on choosing for myself.
