“Begin, be bold, and venture to be wise.”
« on: September 26, 2013, 11:14:50 AM »

Hello guys, this will be my first post (I've already got welcome messages!  What a polite forum!), and that was a quote from Horace.
I, uh, used to dabble in the Leviathan fandom on Tumblr, and although I'm here now as well I'm much more active on tumblr (my url is aleksandarhohenberg. naturally.)
I like the Levi trilogy a lot, as well as LOTR, Marvel, and manga.  I cosplay really frequently, so I may poke around and see if I can find a cosplay thread.  Uh? What else.  I'm a really horrible cook.  I'm a history major at my uni.  At the moment, I'm trying to convince my twin sister to read Leviathan, and she and I have this rivalry going on--her favorite historical empire is Prussia, while mine is Austria-Hungary, so I've got to find a book about a young Prussian prince to read as a trade off.  I haven't found one yet.

Welcome to the forum! I'm Pan :) I believe I sent you a welcome PM, unless I'm confused.

There is a cosplay thread, here: http://scottwesterfeld.com/forum/index.php?topic=11241.0 (How is cosplay pronounced, by the way?)

I hope your sister does read Leviathan, and I'll let you know if I finds a book about a Prussian prince :)

Fantastic, you've brought me my people.  "Cosplay" is a mixture of "costume" and "roleplay," so it's got a soft o like costume.  Often shouted through tears of pain or cries of anguish, to get the right effect.
