For now I'm just using my actual name, my usual screen name (Sexkiller Art Deco) might be "too edgy" and I don't want it associated as my actual pen name. Good luck finding the real me out there though. Maybe as things go on I'll think of something clever.
I've been reading things on this wiki for a few years now and have based more then one table top gaming session around some form of SCP or another. I have a few specific reasons for finally joining the wiki as a member instead of a lurker, I'm taking a semester break from college and this is a perfect chance:
- Taking my writing to the next level in a community that enjoys the same style as I do, I plan on doing mainly "spookier" style stuff but I have a big soft spot for quality slice of life since it's a rarity these days
- An opportunity to grow as an artist and draw / animate things, I think this could be a good motivational community and there's limitless inspiration
- Finish fleshing out a table top game I've been working on, while it's not based on any actual SCP's the general theme of an organization that goes out and deals with strange things is the basis and players have reacted positively to it
- Maybe even try to become a staff member one day, learning community management and building is something that could pay off big in the future
As for things about me, I'm in my 20's and plan on entering a research field one day as a computer science major; hopefully in a space department. My biggest influences stem from Lovecraft ("Pickman's Model" in particular) and the comic horror genre, John Carpenter's "The Thing" is my favorite film. John Carmack (the creator of "DOOM") is another personal role model. I think that in order to live life to the fullest one has to dabble in all things, art and writing are just as important as hard science! I take diet and exercise fairly serious and I love to get fired up about silly things. Once I get on a roll I burn hot like the sun! Philosophy is my favorite subject and I hope to not be too hamfisted about implementing it in my writing. For those that care, I relate heavily to Sarte and Camus but I have a healthy absurdist streak as well!
Looking forward to integrating into the community,
