    My part German heritage is trying to pronounce that world, but it just results in a tongue twister.

    Raven started as a nickname but now I prefer it at school. K stands for kitten, another nickname.

    It's my first name, what was supposed to be an "O" for my middle name, and then "C" for my last name. Instead I wrote TheodoreAC, but I didn't know the whole "reset your username within 2 weeks and it doesn't count as a change of username" clause in the rules so I just lived with it and I still live with it.

    My username is fairly obvious. When I was four I read at an eight year old level and never went anywhere without a book. Thanks to modern technology I have a kindle, the kindle app on my phone and iBooks on my iPad. I am never without reading material. I love the phone app it’s less weird to stare at your phone in a waiting room than it is to bring a kindle.

    Dark Lord of the Sith becomes reformed Jedi hero. Granted...I would never consider myself a Sith lol but I just loved KOTOR, it was such a great game and loved the backstory.

    Aw yeah Nico was the best character in the series! Rick Riordan actually did a pretty good job of designing a character who was gay and whose being gay was an important part of his development, but wasn't really the token gay character that's just there so the author can slap a "I write diverse books" label on the book (at least in my opinion oops this kinda became a rant).

    it's just supposed to mean that not everything you say is always eloquent or perfect, really. I guess it was supposed to sound artistic and cool but it's a bit lame sounding LOL. it just kind of came to mind

    I was thinking of women playing bingo, and those droopy bits under their arms we call “bingo wings”.
    I didn’t really want to be called “Bingowings” and so it became a variant on that.

    My full pseudonym name, Misadori Kemorii is splitted into two different stories:slight_smile: Misadori comes from two Japanese words (I don't speak much Japanese but I've picked up a few words here and there^^) combined into one. The first one is 'Midori' which is a typical female name in Japan:slight_smile: It also means 'green.' The other word is 'Sasori' which means scorpion, which is my zodiac sign. In the beginnin' I started to play with the word and used it as a code name, Midori Sasori, along with three particular friends (also borned as Scorpios, we just gave eachother a color in Japanese;P) I found both of those names a little bit similiar when I splitted 'em up: Mi/Sa-Do/So-Ri/Ri. They both, as you can see, finish with same letters so I chose Mi as a start and followed it with Sa:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: And voilà, I had my new name Misadori^^ I liked it better than goin' with Sadori:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    I didn't received my last name until I actually met another EC:er here^^ It's an awesome guy called Riz and if it wouldn't be for him, I'd never gather my courage to come out towards certain friends as well as my own family^^<3 I love that guy, wouldn't have been the real me today if it wasn't for him<3^^Also, he managed to get me to buy my very first silver pleated skirt before New Year's Eve some years ago (my parents would be out, by that time not knowin' that I was a trans MtF). We talked a lot about Japanese fashion and he introduced me Mori Kei and Natural Kei:slight_smile: A lot of layers and flowy fabrics with lots of patterns, they were described as faeries from a fairy tale story of some kind dressin' after the colors of the seasons and usin' usually simple cotton fabrics and made buttons out of woods etc. Usin' the nature itself to put it simple^^
    I really liked the idea and thought of Mori Kei and by playin' around with those words, I creaged an anagram which became my last name: Kemorii. Riz inspired me and I wouldn't have been able to receive my last name if it weren't for him^^:3 So ever since, I've enjoyed my new pseudonym/alter ego name: Misadori Kemorii<3 (even decided to go with Misa-Misa as a nice name;3)

    It’s just the initial of the first person I came out to, on the day I came out. I came out to my then best friend Christina on June 12 2014, about a week after first joining EC. That was a simpler time...

    How much French do you know? I am partially fluent. I can’t rap or anything, or get the accent right, but I can read French very well.
    And a raven is my spirit animal too

    R is for Roura, which is similar to my name and Kaitlyn for an old vlogger, and tonks is from Harry Potter because my friend who is an HP need says I embody her personality exactly.

    I can only speak a little, I'm much better at reading. I can hold up a conversation and I know enough to get around in the event that I ever end up in a French-speaking country, but not much more than that. I can read it much better and I like reading short stories and such to improve.
