Well, I have a knack for making a thread go off topic.

By sex, I meant the "male or female" question.  DAVE. :tama-mad:   (p.s. <3)

(I did kinda set it up to get a few of those responses, though, so I'm sorry for making you feel all young and uncomfortable. ^^; )
Sweet dreams, Jab.  Love you forever.

Whatever you touch make things go off topic. Even if not on purpose it just goes off the road. Shame, Commie, shame!

^Haha, I was just joking around, no worries. xD

Y'know, when I first started writing fanfics for H!P, I was bothered that I was writing about two girls... ._. Especially since I'm a girl myself. I was also surprised by the number of female authors. Back then, I never would have found the thought of two girls together so...normal. XD

When I first started writing I was okay with the femslash but I always felt wierd writing my own, cause as a guy you already have a set amount of creeper points and writing two girl relationship stories, not so much with the helping.  In the end it all worked out cause I have been mistaken for a girl dozens of time so really win-win. 

Who would of thought that a strong liking of writing fluff and love for pink would make people think your a girl.  In my opinion thats a one way ticket to manliness.   :pandaaa:

:doh: LOL!  Pfft, that's the last time I try to be sensitive. (;P)

Oh, Fen.  Just be glad I didn't try and touch your steering wheel. Or maybe I did.  I think I did!  And see?  We're alive.  Heh, point for Com.

Lol, Mavpanda, I think I love you.  Yeah, when you think about it, there's this idea that it's creepy for a guy to write that stuff, but ok for a girl to.  In my opinion, the fact that any of us is writing these mushy, fluffy stories about real life people and pairing them off with each other is the ultimate creepy. :lol:  But hey, if it gets the creativity flowing, then it's ok.  Never let it stop me completely before.
Sweet dreams, Jab.  Love you forever.

I am just going to go with the circular logic and say that maybe we aren't creepy, maybe everyone else that thinks were creepy for thinking were creepy...

Okay maverickpanda has basically forced me to come post here due to major secret reveals about OTN1, who is still far and away my favorite fanfiction author ever (remember when i used to comment on your stories all the time commie?  *puppy dog eyes*). 

I can see why you would be hesitant to post under your old forum name due to a bias against a crazy or outgoing personality.  Not gonna lie, i would look at something like that far before I looked at something like gender.  If I guy writes a story, even if it is femslash, I'm not going to go into it with any sort of preconceptions.  My good friend maverickpanda writes and I still enjoy his stories immensely. 

Even more on topic.  I am a girl.  Like most of the people here apparently.

I feel totally awkward just jumping in here when I hardly ever post my own fanfiction on JPHiP.  All my recent stuff is Wonder Girls related and up on Spectacle.  So um check it out *shameless plug*.  I'm not gonna lie commie, I totally started writing because of your awesome stories, i'm sure they are an inspiration to a lot of us!

Nova, it's been a while.  Thanks for the kind words, and of course I remember you and your comments! <3 I'm glad that you understand the whole thing about biases against people with already known personalities.  I mean, it's not a terrible or unnatural bias to have, because without it, we wouldn't have preferred/favourite anythings.  I'd sooner pick up a novel by one of my favourite authors than pick up the book beside his, or pick up a book by, say, Conrad Black (even though it might end up being the most awesome book ever written).  But yeah, I'd never make the choice based on gender.

Pimp those stories, man!  No shame.
Sweet dreams, Jab.  Love you forever.

Whoa, is Davetron a fic lurker? ;D


Ok, now that the proverbial cat's out of the bag and even I know the secret, gotta ask...does "OTN1" stand for anything (like, is it an acronym for something) or was it just yet another moment of awesome Commie randomness?  :grin:

Heh, I dunno.  My internet service provider at the time was OCN, and I saw that icon every day on my desktop.  That plus the fact that I like the almost-rhyming word "ocean" must've conditioned my brain to choose something as meaningless as "OTN".  As for the "1"... I have no idea what possessed me to drop that in.  Commie randomness.  I hate the number, though, and wish I hadn't added it.  But yeah, it all boils down to my being a silly dork.   :nervous

Awww that is so adorably random and dorky. <3 randomness.

Now since we are on the subject or forumn names, I am going to propose a question that may bring up some hillarious conversation.

How did you come up with your handles and do you think that for the most part people's handles are a good indicator the the user's gender?

:pandaaa:

Mine is just my initials.

Nope (or at least, not always).
:nervous XD

When you click the "more" tab, it should be found just before the monkey ones. :)

Also, the smiley is not just "boobs", but actually "bouncy boobs" (replaced the quotes with colons, of course). :D

Wow, OTN1 is commie! That is awesome, I totally couldn't tell, lol. I don't usually bias stories on gender as much as I do previously written stories, even though I know I shouldn't necessarily, I mean, look at my old stories. If someone read that crap and then saw I had written something new, they might be like, "Hahaha no." Know what I mean?

But some stories you can read and go, 'Yup that person's a girl/boy!" Lol.

I, myself, am a girl, for however much I gripe and complain, I wouldn't change that fact. And I don't think it's weird as a girl to write two girls together, actually I think it's weirder to write about real people.

Though that doesn't stop me. XD

As for how I came up with my username, well, when I was but a wee li'l one and I first started using sites and IMs where you needed a handle, my friend was trying to help me come up with one. She told me that she had a friend who used 'Random Li'l Weirdo' as a username and I wanted something like that, hence rndmnwierd or random and weird with weird spelled wrong.

That's also pretty much my only username because I've used it for so long that any deviation from it results in brain overload and explosions. Been there, tried that, forgot my passwords. Oh Gaia, how I miss you.

As male as they get, I'd be very shocked if anyone had ever mistaken me for a girl.
