Various Things of Note
Hello, and welcome to my profile, also known as a little bit of a Dream Chaser's personal space in the absorbing Medazzaland otherwise known as Gaia.
Source of Gaian name: Elliot Rhymeless is the name of one of the characters I created for a Wild Arms fan-sequel-project-thingy that I've been occasionally working on for the past couple of years. Out of all the characters I created for it, though, Elliot was the one who was the most like me.
Birth name: Sorry, not telling here. The meanings behind my given name can be translated and put together to say "Peaceful Wolf", though... which is kinda neat. ^^
Age: Young enough to be curious, old enough to be cautious. ^^;
Blood Type: A-positive, which I didn't actually know until I started donating blood. ^^;
Hair color: Darkish brown, long and usually ponytailed.
Eye color: Mostly green-blue, with hazel specks here and there, and itty-bitty streaks of brown in some places around the pupils. Yes, I have weird eyes. ^^;
Gender (I acknowledge there is a difference between gender and biological sex): either androgynous or very effeminately male. The term I prefer to use in describing myself is "Straight Uke". ^^;
Relationship Status: No longer dating (read: being claimed by) Rushuna_Tendo
in all likelihood, due to the lack of contact by her ongoing absence... but I get the feeling that she and I are at least still very good friends, and that friendship is what this drawing represents to me now:
Things I do for fun: Listen to music, travel, watch certain TV/anime series and films, write/draw, hike and relax in natural areas by myself, play video games, play tabletop RPGs, play a few kinds of card games, hang out with friends, talk with friends online, cosplay, go to anime conventions (or at least a specific one), [talk with friends / help out friends / generally waste time] on Gaia, sleep.
Likes: All four seasons, sunrises/sunsets, beaches/the ocean, quiet mornings, occasionally staying up all night, walking/hiking, driving, fantasy & anime art, wind, snow, sun, rain, dragons, cats (both the lil' domestic kind and the big predatory kind), wolves and wolf-like dogs, airports/train stations, nature, big skyscraper-y cities, Earth, other worlds/alternate realities.
Dislikes: Stereotypes, oppression of any kind, driving in heavy traffic, lies/deception/manipulation, "gold diggers" or "shallow" people, people who use other people, social hierarchies, overblown competitiveness.
Favorite Anime and Manga: Kino no Tabi/Kino's Journey, Rurouni Kenshin, Oh My Goddess!, .hack//SIGN (as well as //Liminality and //Roots... and because there's enough similarities, I'm adding Sword Art Online here as well. ^^), Wolf's Rain, Trigun (& Trigun Maximum), Full Metal Alchemist, Witch Hunter Robin, Tenchi Muyo! (OVA series 1), Record of Lodoss War, Cowboy Bebop, Neon Genesis Evangelion, FLCL, Lupin III (and The Lady Called Fujiko Mine), Excel Saga, Dragon Half, Read Or Die (OVA series), some Miyazaki films, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (& 2nd Gig), Hellsing, Ranma 1/2, Mermaid Forest/Mermaid's Scar, Slayers, Gokudo: Swordsman Extraordinaire, Gungrave, Chrno Crusade, Genshiken, Chobits (manga version), Bleach, Pani Poni Dash! (mostly because it made a Twin Peaks reference... ^^), Vandread, Gurren Lagann, Rosario + Vampire (the manga version only), Hundred Stories / Requiem from the Darkness, and Grenadier (because I adore Rushuna's heart and personality. You gotta problem with that? =P)
Favorite Books: Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy, R.A. Salvatore's novels about Drizzt Do'Urden (though mostly just up to "Siege of Darkness"), most of the early Dragonlance novels (especially Chronicles 1-3), Mark Z. Danielewski's House

Favorite Video Games/Music/TV/Movies: I'm not even going to try listing any of these, because they'd all be way too long, and they'd make this profile much bigger than it needs to be. Let's just say "a lot" on all counts, okay? A great big whole lot, especially in regard to music and video games... ^^;
I'll probably try to add a little more to this as time goes on, but thank you for stopping by! In the meantime, and since I don't want to clutter my profile too much, here's a few links to some more hand-picked YouTube videos:
