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 WildArms 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.
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): a significant degree of effeminately male... but nevertheless straight, aka attracted to women. Like it or not, that's just who I am.
MBTi Personality: iNFP, last time I checked. Or was it iSFP...?
Not interested in having an online relationship.
In other words, as far as Gaia needs to be concerned,
I've effectively proclaimed myself as "undateable".
Things I do for fun: Listen to music, travel, watch TV/anime series and films that interest me, write/draw, hike and relax in natural areas by myself, play video games/tabletop RPGs/a few kinds of card games, hang out with friends or talk to them online, cosplay, go to anime conventions and concerts (when I can), [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, monster ladies, 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, relatively mundane domestic matters (cleaning, cooking, etc., even if I'm not talented by most standards... ^^; ), and helping out friends.
Dislikes: Stereotypes, prejudice/discrimination/disrespect/oppression of any kind, driving in heavy traffic, lies/deception/manipulation, "gold diggers"/"shallow" people, people who maliciously use or mislead others, social hierarchies, overblown competitiveness, people who try to force others into being something they're not.
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, Michiko & Hatchin, 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 Ultimate (though there are bits of the TV series that I like), Ranma 1/2, Mermaid Forest/Mermaid's Scar, Slayers, Gokudo: Swordsman Extraordinaire, Fairy Tail, Gungrave, Chrno Crusade, Genshiken, Chobits (manga version), Bleach, Pani Poni Dash! (only because it made a Twin Peaks reference... XD), 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 of Leaves, Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" graphic novels, Gaiman & Pratchett's "Good Omens", Erik Christian Haugaard's "The Samurai's Tale" and "The Boy and the Samurai", Jay Kristoff's Lotus War Trilogy, Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein", Bram Stoker's "Dracula", Michael Ende's "The Neverending Story", the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Celia Rees' "Witch Child" and "Sorceress", Huston Smith's "The World's Religions", Stephen Simon's "The Force is With You", Adrian Praetzellis' "Death by Theory", Maurice Leblanc's novels about Arsene Lupin; and the novelizations for .hack, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Kino no Tabi, and many more... including travel guides and sourcebooks for many tabletop RPGs.
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:
Oh gosh! I didn't even think of Lapis/Amethyst fusions when I made this avi. But I can kind of see where that might come from... Maybe Azurite? Hm...
The kids love it. For the most part. There are a few outliers that usually just wander the room no matter what's going on. Comes with the territory. One kid has cerebral palsy, and can't really jump around like the other kids, so he just kind of sits in his chair with the sticks in his hands. It's really sad, so I'm trying to find ways to include him without having to completely switch gears with the class, since the rest of them benefit so much from moving around and being active.
Well, hey. Sometimes same old is good. It sounds like you have some fun things to look forward to. Concerts? Who are you going to see?
Right now I'm just getting things ready for student teaching in the fall. So, prepping for tests, getting medical forms in check. And I'm working at a camp for kids with special needs, teaching Pound (cardio with drumsticks) classes for them. It's a good stim for them. What have you been up to?
This is the journal of Elliot Rhymeless, Dream Chaser and mostly-quiet observer of the world. I'm interested in a quite a few things, but I don't often write about them.... When I do, though, they'll go here. ^^;
