I'm sure everyone is curious as to how I chose mine well you see I have quite the imagination and sometimes I liked to pretend that I am-was- I famous writer of fantasy series about cats and my name was Katness Warrior. I decided on Katness because it's the only name with the word cat in it and because I am a like a cat in someways. If your wondering about the Warrior that came from my favorite series-Warrior cats.

I'm not sure if I ever explained my previous username here, but Saen is a shorter version of saentiel. saentiel was a name that I created using a post on Tumblr that was supposed to show you what your angel name would be. I was bored and trying to doing it. saentiel was the result; I liked it so much that I saved it for later and decided to eventually use it as my username. After a few months of having it, I knew I wanted something shorter and more "me". My go-to new username, Sae, was already taken. I settled on Saen, and I don't regret it in the slightest.

Mea says...

Like @Saen, my username is actually a shortening of my previous username, Meandbooks! That was the username I joined with, and I originally came up with it because, well, I really love books. But people kept misreading it as "Meanbooks," which I didn't like, and after a year or two on here I just wanted something shorter anyway. I'd picked up a few nicknames, and one of them was Mea. I really, really liked it, more than I liked any of the other nicknames people gave me (though my other favorite was Meander). So when I finally decided to change my username, I chose Mea, and I doubt I'll ever change it again!

fishsashimi says...

Biru (ビル) is the japanese pronunciation of my name (Bill). Kun is a Japanese honorific generally used for addressing men formally (or those of senior status, ect.) and it sounded better than BiruSan, and so here I am!

My previous username was OniiChan, which means "big bro" in Japanese, btw.

Lucrezia says...

It's my actual name. Also, I'm low-key obsessed with Lucrezia Borgia. :smt003
Call me Lucrezia, Lucy, Lulu, Lu, Zia, or any nickname you can come up with. Trust me, I've heard them all before.

bigsisfarmer says...

I was 10 years old, and getting my first email account. (I am the oldest and my parents are really protective.)

I couldn't figure out what I wanted it to be. My dad told me since I'm a big sister and a "farmer" of sorts, I should be called bigsisfarmer.

I kinda just stuck, and it brings back good memories, so I keep it.
I want to read your works!

Message me about anything! I'm always willing to talk.

manilla says...

My friends call me manilla sometimes for reasons unknown since 7th grade science class, when some of us sat together. It's weird, and I'm not sure if it's because of the folders.

ThePenultimateGinger says...

I was watching the Doctor Who episode with Vincent Van Gogh (I love Van Gogh) and they joked that if Amy Pond and Vincent had a kid it would be “the ultimate ginger” and so I butchered it into the penultimate ginger because I am ginger, but not of the ultimate variety.

I like firefighting and spies. That's how I came up with mine.
