Picked mine because Bloodborne is a fun game and the night is long.

[–]JFVG 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I haven't completed many games, but I got a bit hooked on Bloodborne and made it through to the end. I got fed up with Sekiro though.

    That's actually pretty interesting.

    I like cockatiels, and a common misspelling of that word is cocktail, so I slapped them together.

    [–]deAccount 2 insightful - 7 fun2 insightful - 6 fun3 insightful - 7 fun -  (0 children)

    This is my real name.

    [–]marva 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

    I went to a username generating website and they randomly gave me the first name Marva. I've never heard of it before so I ignored the usernames and just tried marva. It was free.

    [–]theFriendlyDoomer[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    That's pretty cool. I wonder how common that is.

    [–]MenAreFragileBabies 3 insightful - 4 fun3 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 4 fun -  (4 children)

    I thought it was a good representation of the reason I am here in the first place.

    [–]theFriendlyDoomer[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

    Haha. I tend to agree, though I think our analysis as to why might differ in some places.

    I was really close to my grandfather who was of the silent generation. And being around a person of such character really shows me what's wrong with these "fuck your feelings" dudes. There was once people who lived by "fuck my feelings" and tried to make life better for others. Granted, he was New Deal Democrat, but the dude was tough, always available to help, and really positive and constructive. The idea of harassing strangers or looking for a forum to whine about his life and changes around him would never occur to him.

    Also tied into the post-WWII changes are 1) car culture 2) the explosion suburbs 3) the nuclear family. . . There are all sorts of men who want to be little dictators of a nuclear family, but they wouldn't want to be part of an extended family, where grandma and grandpa, siblings and cousins, lived near by (or upstairs) and expressed opinions on parenting and performed other acts of social regulation. What we have is a consumerism-driven isolation of people, moving toward the direction of more dependence on the system.

    [–]MenAreFragileBabies 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

    I actually mostly agree with your analysis, which both pleases and surprises me TBF. Maybe we can all get along after all.

    [–]theFriendlyDoomer[S] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    To be fair, I'm not one of the national socialists or former The_Donald refugees.

    Instead, I'm homesteading here so I can start cloning subs when the two weeks is up. I just want a backup plan in case the madness spreads. I'm a free thinker trying to be as accurate as I can (hence the Doomer), but I want life to be pleasant (hence the friendly).

    No

    [–]Fictionsaur 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

    When I entered this site, I knew I couldn't pick my preferred username. I'm part of one heavily pro-trans and pro-SJW website amd if they found me here I'd be permabanned for sure. I also don't plan to abandon reddit yet so I don't want to be found there either.

    I came to this website mostly wanting to join communities aimed towards fiction lovers, and that includes: writing fiction books, reading fiction novels and watching fiction movies and series. I'm kinda very fan of the Jurassic Park franchise, so I decided to make my username related to dinosaurs.

    I hope we can build a strong fiction community here to the people who were marginalized for thinking different.

    [–]theFriendlyDoomer[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    I hope we can build a strong fiction community here to the people who were marginalized for thinking different.

    I hope you succeed. Success here is probably going to be a matter of quality rather than quantity. If you find a few people you click with and provide on a semi-regular basis, that would be a huge win.

    [–]dazzledot 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

    I just wanted something different from my Reddit name but I used the same basic construction (adjective or verb+noun). Not sure how I arrived at dazzle or dot but here I am.

    [–]Raavan 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    Raavan is a Hindu mythological character. However, that's not the person who inspired my username. The guy I'm a fan of is the person who played Raavan in the tv serial Raamayan. I just loved this guy, his voice was very impactful, as was his acting.

    That said, this is my 3rd saidit account. Thing is, i kept getting banned from reddit resulting in 30+ accounts being made by me. So I'm not used to staying on the same account name for long - hopefully this account changes that.

    Edit: both my other accounts are in the comments! Can you find them?

    It's a cute breed of dog that's rarely taken on most websites.

    That bot on reddit. That name stuck for a while.

    [–]invertebruh 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

    I like bugs

    [–]theFriendlyDoomer[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    Bruh. Yeah, bugs are pretty cool, bruh.

    [–]stupidmechanic 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

    I like to do car stuff and I'm extremely stupid.

    [–]72ndGender 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

    Well I identify as the 72nd gender, known as gisywrfbjxishebxhusiakwkeidhxbsaooajehddksije. Traditionally, bigoted leftists claimed there were only 71 genders, so I chose my name to advocate against leftist prejudice, and on behalf of other gisywrfbjxishebxhusiakwkeidhxbsaooajehddksije people.

    [–]theFriendlyDoomer[S] 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

    gisywrfbjxishebxhusiakwkeidhxbsaooajehddksije

    Did you type that twice or copy and paste it?

    [–]72ndGender 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    Lol copy paste.

    It's what I say everytime I use a public urinal... I like to offer encouragement.

    Nice.

    I got angry at my housemate and punched a hole through the dry wall. My other housemate dubbed me with this name and I hold the title with honour.

    [–]pussytroll 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

    I used to love trolling right-wing group chats, and I'm a lesbian. Put two and two together lol.

    [–]theFriendlyDoomer[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

    We all need hobbies. What made you quit? Did it just get too repetitive?

    [–]pussytroll 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    No, I just ran out of group chats to troll because I had trolled all of them.

    [–]ShellBellSherbs 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    I had a friend back in third grade who gave me the nickname Shell bell. She was an amazing friend who unfortunitely moved away during middle school and haven't heard from her since.

    The sherbs part was just from putting sounds together until it sounded decent enough to use as a name for my account on my nintendo switch.

    [–]Grateful 1 insightful - 3 fun1 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

    I'm grateful

    What are you most grateful of?

    [–]Grateful 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    health, friends, family, all the good stuff in life

    [–]Byebyeredditaccount 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    I snagged mine after I forgot the password to my first account and thought it was a fitting tribute to all the worthless karma I accumulated over 9 years on reddit.

    [–]SuperImaginativeName 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    I basically picked it once when making an account on Reddit because I just couldn't think of a better name haha, plus I have got a few comment replies in the past complementing my name so

    [–]FedUpTrucker 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

    Pretty self explanatory I think

    [–]theFriendlyDoomer[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    Fair enough.

    [–]SpeakPeasy 0 insightful - 3 fun0 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

    I wanted 'SpeakEasy' but it was already taken. I remembered the phrase "easy peasy lemon squeezy" so I tried 'SpeakPeasy' and it was free.

    The End.

    Dammit, I literally thought of using your name

      [–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

      It's a character from the Malazan book of the fallen. I'm surprised it was even available without me having to put a "0" instead of an "o".

      [–]Movingfromreddit 0 insightful - 3 fun0 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

      [–]Oortcloud 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

      I chose the handle "Oortcloud" back in the 80s when the internet was still in it's infancy. Names were called "handles" then just like ham radio people had handles. I chose the name because at the time the oort cloud was only an educated speculation and that's what I was in to.

      It was the Captcha text when I was creating the account.

      [–]theFriendlyDoomer[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

      An elegant solution, I would say.

      i like to have others view me as a spaceship aeromorph cartoon pony.

      [–]theFriendlyDoomer[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

      And how do you want to view yourself? The same?

      [–]Spaceplone 1 insightful - 3 fun1 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

      yes. maybe i should have mentioned that.
