Loopy-chan -- the real-life person behind the avatar
A huge and heartfelt "thank you" to everyone who left birthday greetings on my profile, sent me gifts, and/or partied down with me at my birthday bash in the Over 30 Guild. I gotta say this is the best danged birthday celebration I've had in years. Love and hugs to all! <3
Greetings! I am, among many other things, a huge fan of the long-running old-school anime/manga franchise Lupin III, and I joined Gaia specifically to roleplay/cosplay as the master thief Arsene Lupin III.
In real life I happen to be a female-bodied queer-identified bisexual of butch lesbian leanings -- alas, they didn't have that checkbox when I registered for Gaia.
So my avatar is nominally "male" -- I tend to think of my Lupin RP/crossplay .as a variation on drag king. Anyway, you may well run into me in LGBT forums/guilds/etc. as well as places devoted to Lupin and to anime/manga in general.
I am also a writer, and am currently into the eighth chapter of a Lupin III fanfiction piece, which you can find at my website link.
If you're into any of these things too, feel free to drop me a line!
P.S. No, that birth date is not a typo. Yes, I am significantly older than the typical Gaian. No, I am not a weirdo--I am simply a long-time computer-geek and anime/SF/fantasy nerd who has never seen any point to so-called "age-appropriate" behavior. Yes, I welcome (platonic) friendships with people of all ages, as well as races, genders, and sexual orientations. Live that freakin' Rainbow, folks!
Some quotes I tend to live by:
"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."
-- Hunter S. Thompson
"Information is not knowledge
Knowledge is not wisdom
Wisdom is not truth
Truth is not beauty
Beauty is not love
Love is not music
Music is THE BEST . . . "
"I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it."
-- Shug Avery, as channeled by Alice Walker
"Life is all about seeing how dumb you can be." -- Lupin III
