Spook Cliff Zone, Act 1: Former Writing Hub

 [NP: N/A]

One of the lads in my Skype group wanted me to talk about him. To do that, I would have to contextualize some things first. 

I used to be part of a Homestar Runner fan community. It was known as the Homestar Runner Fanstuff Wiki. It prospered for quite a while, and I saw some people's writing and was astonished by it. Unfortunately, relevance to the source material we were fans of had been dubious in a lot of the projects. One bloke, by the name of Super Sam, helped a handful of people and myself migrate into the Wiki User Wiki. At the time, it had been 2007. Basically, the Homestar Runner Fanstuff Wiki admins, notably Its Dot Com, wanted to remake the site and had put things on a Gravy Boat which were memorable to the Wiki's culture. Unfortunately, the Homestar Runner Fanstuff Wiki took a long while to regenerate, and I'm not sure it actually did.

In the interim, I decided to take my writing talents to the Wiki User Wiki. This is where I met a majority of the people I worked with on various collaborations. One of these people was known as Strong Intelligent. He used to have beef with me, and it was rather rational. I had decided to fight back against people who were basically throwing a different person I fell in love with, who was at the time known as Pope Bellstrom III, into a depression spiral by demoralizing him to never write again. They did this under the pretense of homage to Mystery Science Theatre 3000, and specifically targeted Pope Bellstrom III and Lucian (a bloke who went by many names for a while - he had been known as Ryan Bluefox for the longest time, however). Their own work was just as "bad," if not worse, so I decided to teach the MST3K ripoff riffers a lesson by trying to make them humble. I doubt it worked. 

Nevertheless, I had come into altercation with Strong Intelligent over my riffs basically becoming just me being a sourpuss. He wasn't wrong, I realized, and I apologized to him for my behaviour. I wasn't sure what else to really do on the Wiki User Wiki, but as of 2013 I decided to join a Skype group. It was there that I managed to get along with him.

Spook Cliff Zone, Act 0: Intro

[NP: Fire & Ice - Sonic Before The Sequel]

Is it weird that I don't have a moment in my life I consider "a phase?" I sometimes wonder if I'm just odd for that, given how a few of my friends mentioned they had phases. One in particular mentioned having a "weeb phase," and from the work of another I suspect this other had a "goff phase," or maybe just a "mimicing My Immortal phase."

One could, perchance, surmise the existence of a "Kingdom Hearts phase" from me, but this runs without prior knowledge of my streetcar desire to reclaim the name Naminé from the clutches of people who kicked me out of the Kingdom Hearts fandom for not having the same, terrible opinions as them. If I wasn't exiled from the Kingdom Hearts fandom forcibly, I might have left of my own accord. Another could conceivably see I have a thing for magic, and those who wield it: my liking World of Darkness takes quite a shine in the Tremere, a group of Vampires from Vampire: The Masquerade who became Liches in Mage: The Awakening.

Now that my pseudonym's etymology has been acknowledged, I shall introduce myself as Naminé Tremere.

I am a bit of a hobbyist, with a passion for writing and gaming which take priority over other hobbies. I am not entirely certain there is much of a way for someone to immediately know who I am, strange as that may be. It could just be chalked to me finding myself sleepy. I'm not sure how to sum myself up.

I devised a Dreamwidth account, when I had learned of this site through a charming friend who goes by the name of Remolay. I have pretty much hopped around from one segment of the Internet to another, as far as some subcultures go. I learned this from moving around a lot as a child, although I'm not entirely sure moving around from website to website is necessarily a good or wise thing to learn. I have become a bit more familiar with blogging nowadays, though. There isn't too much I would otherwise know, as far as storytelling is concerned.

I shall try to gather my thoughts of what would be interesting to tell. Otherwise, I shall currently try to catch up on sleep, as pitifully difficult as that is.
