My username is also my primary character's Elvish name in LOTRO. In Sindarin it translates to, "new" or "begun again" + feminine suffix, so...Edenthiel = "new girl".

The avatar based on Emily Evan's "Know Thyself", modified to reflect a message of pro-neurodiversity.

I really like cats, especially small ones, and I find it funny and fascinating how they like to sit in windows doing nothing but look around. My avatar is a drawing of me.

SN: I like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and the city of Los Angeles. I decided to combine the two, Equestria, the kingdom in which the series is set in, and the city of Los Angeles. Hence, "EquestriatoLA".

Avatar: It's Sailor Uranus. I love Sailor Moon. :D

I now have my avatar!

He is Swedish rock musician Tomas Ledin at the age of 28. Now 64 and still looking good. Chosen because he is my celebrity crush.

My name is actually the title of a song (well, it's probably the title of lots of songs, but I had one in mind when I chose it lol), and my avatar is actually something I created in Photoshop using one of my photographs. I've been experimenting with abstract Photoshop art, and I thought that it goes with my signature. I chose my signature because it's Aldous Huxley, and Aldous Huxley is awesome. :)

I chose TheSilentOne because I am pretty quiet in person and also because of The Silence on Doctor Who. My other username, had this one been taken, was going to be SilentGwen, mixing The Silence with my name :D
My avatar is because I love Merlin and I have a huge crush on Eve Myles :wink:

Eve Myles, whose character on Torchwood was also named Gwen (just to add another layer of meaning to it all lol).

I chose my user name for spiritual reasons. I'm short, and a lot of my male friends are much taller than me. My nickname is Lu. It also resonates well with me on a sacred level. It is Enochian for "Inclusion." And when I say Enochian, I mean actual documented Enochian. Not any of that Supernatural BS. XD It's the name I identify best with. Hence "Little Lu."

I chose my avatar (just updated, actually) to reflect my Synesthesia, as I hear and feel in color.

My signature is pretty self explanatory, lol. It's just a quote of my name.

My signature is a lyric from Tomas' 1980 song 'Looking For A Good Time'. And he's right. You need to be a bit mad to make sense of this world sometimes.

My screen name is a reference to the movie Spinal Tap Shark Sandwich was the name of their last album in the movie and 211 come from "this amp goes to eleven"

As for the Avatar- just a pic of me at gig I did in Germany.

My username actually came from a shave-ice stand. :lol: They had the flavors listed on the top and I thought Lillikoi sounded pretty.
Lilikoi is a type of passionfruit. :mrgreen:

I had a Squirtle avatar a long time ago, so I've sort of been doing it ever since.
