aankh started me off on this so I’ve decided to feed his curiosity and help my own curious cat in the meantime.
We all have really good screennames (Duh! That’s why we chose them). Some names are obvious but for the rest of you I’m giving you the chance to let everyone know why the hell you are called, well, whatever you’re called.
I’ll go first. But that’s only if Tentacle Monster promises that he won’t tell me his reasoning. They say truth is stranger than fiction and my fiction is damn strange.
I got my name from some random website when I was registering… honest. In fact I think it was a Microsoft website. I couldn’t get the name I wanted and it was a recommended alternative. That’s it. But of course I am nocturnal by nature and I stand up now for all things tick-ish. But really my name was a fluke.
