Title: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Four of Spades on April 25, 2014, 10:09:42 PM
Hey, I'm Spades. I currently have no clue what I'm doing, but I guess that's simply answered with 'Being awkward, and writing an introduction.' Sooo, yeah. I guess the proper thing to do would be telling you about myself.

1. A fan of many shows, movies and books including (but not limited to):
-Person of Interest
-9 (the one with the small ragdoll like beings in a post-war city where humankind has been destroyed.)
-Doctor Who
-A great deal of other things

2. I run a blog.

3. I am an artist of the drawing variety.

4. I can be preeeeety talkitive.

So! A few of the basics about me. I have a small question though. How does one go about having an avatar show? I know how to set one, but it won't appear when I go to my profile. Is the image simply too large?

Hello! I am Panzercrappitastica Bonechomper, but I am called Pan. Welcome to the forum!
About the avatar thing, I don't know. Sometimes it just doesn't show up; that's happened to me, too. Are you uploading it from your computer or from a website?
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Four of Spades on April 25, 2014, 11:25:33 PM
Hello and thanks, Pan! Yes, I'm trying to upload it directly from a website, Tumblr to be exact.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on April 25, 2014, 11:26:26 PM
You could try saving the picture to your computer and uploading it from there.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Four of Spades on April 25, 2014, 11:29:23 PM
Yeah. I'll try that once I'm on a computer. Thanks for the help!

You're welcome :)
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Four of Spades on April 26, 2014, 05:21:13 AM
Ok. Think that the image was just too big.

I'm Legion. Or Zero. Both work ;D

Well we're all happy to have you here :)

I think I will like it here,  I just need to socalize more. Thanks!
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on April 26, 2014, 06:59:36 AM
that shouldn't be too hard to do. Everyone's really quite nice here.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!

*Le nod*
Okay! I SHALL TRY.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on April 26, 2014, 07:26:18 AM
 so what book got you into this fandom? It was mainly Leviathan for me.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Four of Spades on April 26, 2014, 07:30:17 AM
It was the Leviathan trilogy for me, too. ((Which I'm currently re-reading for the millionth time.)) I've read some of the Uglies books, but I can't remember much from them. I actually started the series with Behemoth, rather than Leviathan.

Post by: Panzercrappitastica on April 26, 2014, 07:56:58 AM
"The word is Dummkopf, and I don't look like one because my stance isn't dreadful." ;D

So, what other books do you like? I want to know what references you will understand ;)
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Catvomitsky on April 26, 2014, 03:20:27 PM
Elmo, newbie and fellow Whovian! I've always wanted to see 9, but I've never gotten the chance :-(

Have you read Divergent? Or the Lorien Legacies series? If so, would you mind being called Four? OH! Four is one of the characters in 9, right? Either way, should we call you Four? That would be cool :D Or perhaps Spades, or FoS (there was a user here a long time ago called King of Soades and people called him KoS)...

You should try reading Scott's other books, they're good :)
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Four of Spades on April 27, 2014, 01:42:57 AM
@Pan
Well... Wings of Fire, partially the Eragon series, the Lunar Chroonicles. I've read so many that it's hard to keep track!

@Cat
Well, I'm really okay with any nickname! As long as it's not offensive, I'm cool. I have read the Divergent trilogy, but not the other one you mentioned.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on April 27, 2014, 01:47:54 AM
Ah. So, from what you've listed, you probably won't get most of my references...oh well :P
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Four of Spades on April 27, 2014, 02:02:15 AM
I can try to understand them.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!

Post by: Catvomitsky on April 27, 2014, 02:38:12 AM
No, nicknames here aren't offensive. It's just too hard to type out everyone's full username :P

Yay, I've read the Eragon series and The Lunar Chrinicles as well! But I haven't finished Cress yet.

Welcome to the forum c':
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Four of Spades on April 27, 2014, 03:30:02 AM
@Pan
YES. I KNOW THAT ONE. Heroes of Olympus series. I've read all of the Kane Chronicles, PJatO, and all the books so far in Heroes of Olympus. (Own most of them, too.)

@Cat
Ok XD

I've finished Cress, and gotten Cinder and Scarlet signed by the author.

@Eraisuithiel
QuQ Thank you!
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on April 27, 2014, 04:11:08 AM
YES! Okay. What about Harry Potter and the Shadowhunter books?
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Four of Spades on April 27, 2014, 04:24:46 AM
YES YES YES. I've read some of the Harry Potter books, but dropped out. We kinda joke about CAPSLOCK Harry in one of the books in my English class. But I've read all the Shadowhunter books.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on April 27, 2014, 04:29:18 AM
Well, you'll get quite a few of my references, then. Never trust a duck ;)
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Four of Spades on April 27, 2014, 04:32:51 AM
Silly ducks. XP
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on April 27, 2014, 04:48:50 AM
Anyway, nice to meet you and welcome to the forum :)
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Four of Spades on April 27, 2014, 04:51:40 AM
Why, thank-you! Nice to meet you too.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Catvomitsky on April 27, 2014, 05:54:25 AM
I feel like I'm the only one who hasn't read Cassandra Clare's books. I need to read them one day :P

Btw, I luuurv your avatar. The full picture was my laptop wallpaper for awhile...
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Four of Spades on April 27, 2014, 05:56:51 AM
Thanks, Cat! You must read them. You must. I would lend them to you, if that was possible for me through the internet.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on April 27, 2014, 05:57:13 AM
Yes. You do need to read them. Because they are amazing.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Catvomitsky on April 27, 2014, 06:18:02 AM
Well, I wouldn't want to disappoint my fellow Westerfans! :D I shall read them after I finish all the other books I am currently reading...
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on April 27, 2014, 06:30:29 AM
Fair enough.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!

Hey thur! Welcome :)

Post by: FirelordAzula on April 27, 2014, 11:29:11 PM
Hello! I'm a little late, but welcome anyway. You can call me Firelord, Azula, or whatever you feel like. I hope you are okay with things getting a little weird, because this place can get crazy.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on April 28, 2014, 12:00:28 AM
Especially in the bloodbath thread.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on April 28, 2014, 12:01:55 AM
Oh, of course! We'd love to have another at the Bloodbath. (It's not quite what it sounds like, it's more utter chaos than blood.)
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on April 28, 2014, 12:06:44 AM
It's fun! its pretty much Leviathan fanbase making fun of themselves by writing a parody.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: FirelordAzula on April 28, 2014, 12:17:51 AM
And throwing in every random character we feel like. We've had cameos of Jack Skellington, many half-bloods, fangirls, and more.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on April 28, 2014, 12:23:20 AM
And Minerva of The Last Days has become a long-term character. As has Alek's clone.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: FirelordAzula on April 28, 2014, 12:30:03 AM
And I'm considering throwing Dess in there sometime.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on April 28, 2014, 12:47:44 AM
I've already had the characters some Peeps and Uglies show up multiple times, so why not?
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Four of Spades on April 28, 2014, 02:00:22 AM
Chaos? Weirdness? BRILLIANT. I must check out the Bloodbath as soon as I finish eating another universe. Or popcorn.
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on April 28, 2014, 02:01:54 AM
Hooray!
Title: Re: Oh, Hi There!
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on April 28, 2014, 02:03:05 AM
Yay! :D
