Hello all. IímÖ well, you can read the username, so thatís a bit pointless. And if you canít read the username then you probably canít read at all, so I suppose itís a little pointless trying to apologise and oh dear I appear to have gone off on a tangent. Let me start again.
Hello. The username pretty much says it all. I was quite nervous about even joining this site, primarily because Iím, well, cynical and paranoid. I know that thereís little chance of anyone finding me in real life because of what theyíve read here, but itís always been a doubt at the back of my mind. So please excuse this thing if it reads as awkward, because itís probably been through a few thousand drafts where it was even more awkward. Other traits of mine that arenít in my username are my eccentricity and sense of humour, as well as my tendency to ramble, which youíve already read above. Sorry about that. In my free time I do a few things- gaming is probably your normal one, but I also write scripts for short films I make with friends, and filmmaking is probably my favourite hobby. Given that I tend to write slightly zany comedies, I also make a lot of props and stuff in my spare time. Finally, I fence. Thereís nothing like taking out your frustration with the world on someone with a sword.
As for why Iím here outside of the obvious, Iím mainly here for the various perspectives of AB/DLism. Heck, you all seem to know a lot more about it than I do. Itís my demotion to Lurker status that prompted me to write this, because of the cut-off from the forums. So far Iíve found them to be helpful and interesting, though itís probably take me a while to pluck up the courage to start posting much- even this was difficult.
