At this point i dont remember where the qaz came from since i have had that part of the name since 2006 but i think i just combined it with cake because i was hungry.

I got the burger cake on a random image search since i figured i do what i did with my skype picture and put a picture of a cake.

I have no sig but i really should get one.

I honestly have no idea how I thought of my name.
I made my avatar myself, and I'm pretty proud of it.
I wrote my signature myself in the style of something raocow *might* say.

Many usernames I have had over the years.

The very first one that I can remember using was on the Lego message boards as a wee child, then I was super into cars especially the Carrera GT so I went with thecgtdriver for a while. Then I was super into the two Suzuki concepts in Gran Turismo 4, so I changed it to GSX-R/4S2 which is absolutely lovely to remember to type. Then I migrated to the Mario wiki place and sought out something to be easier to remember, and at the time I was writing some Paper Mario fanfiction where the main antagonist was Mr. L along with equivalent versions of all the rest of the behatted bros and according princesses that were collectively named the Negative Squad, and I used that as my name. Then I got kinda tired of that-ish and was into Animal Crossing at the time and thought Gyroids were the coolest things ever so I changed it to Gyroid X. And then I was all thinking of something a bit nicer in text and decided to make something of a pen name, Gyra deriving from the previous as something I thought sounded name-ish, Solune being a nifty portmanteau of words relating to the sun and moon, and I felt it was pleasant to the eyes and ears so it has stuck the longest.

And my avatar is a thing I drew myself, a side profile for Ilivais X, the main character's giant robot in a story of mine entitled the same. It's all crazy and physics breaking and has a perpetual energy generator on its back and this leads to MUCH DRAMA. Of course more commonly on the internet as in say, Skypehaus my icon is a white haired lady on a blue background with a big black and white sword and that is also something I drew myself, an Original Character Do Not Steal named Geneva who is super angsty and regretful and tries to murder multidimensional gods which is something very in place in its planned origin, a Mario themed Zelda Classic game.

words. so many

Username: I already told it. Oh! Did I mention it's sorta like this: Everytime I heard Fiora (yeah, I'm playing LoL) said 'En Garde', it hit me when I'm playing Pokemon Flora Sky (the hack) at the time that my Gardevoir (and of course the team) grew stronger. That 'sword fighting' quote and that Pokemon combined harmoniously. Thus, this username became intact in my head.

Avatar: Got it from bulbapedia

Name: explained in the thread for it but the short version is it's a character from a really bad story I wrote in 8th grade and the name just stuck.

Avatar: also a character from a story of mine, much more recent and (I hope) better than the other one. This one's drawn by one of my best friends, who's a really super-good artist. This is link to their work.

Sig: Not much to say here.

Name: Two friends and me once decided to make a very bad good rap band (for the German-speaking folks reading this: Similar to Fresh Dumbledore, only way worse better). Piter Lauchy is my pseudonym in it. Piter's pronounced like the name Peter and Lauchy contains a phoneme that sounds like someone suffocating on a piece of carpet to English ears. That's my guess anyway.

Avatar: It's Buddy Jesus from Kevin Smith's Dogma. I love the film and even though it's obviously just taking the piss, I love the idea of switching out cross-Jesus with this version. I don't consider myself Christian, but I think that he was a pretty rad dude.

Sig: Spread the love.
You're awesome.

Name: I used to go by "Ronin Catholic" and "Ronintendo" on most other websites and make up names/backstories for my various fursonas as I changed species (fox, bat, wolf, tanuki, various hybrids, etc). When I changed to dormouse in 2013 I just said "Screw it, I'll use my real name because that's what everyone always calls me in the community where I'm most prominent anyway" and added variants of "the Mouse" or "the Dormouse" at various points with no consistency between sites. When raocow announced the first MaGL X signup being on the Talkhaus, I decided to sign up and figured "Talkmaus" was thematically appropriate for my new environment.

Avatar: I drew the sprite intending it as an avatar anyway, probably the in spring of 2013. The reasons for it being 20x20 are twofold:
1) 100x100, 80x80, and 120x120 are the most common acceptable avatar dimensions I'm familiar with on various sites so 20 pixels scales very nicely with all of them and
2) 20x20 is the size for a tile / character map sprite in my RPG engine of choice so it's what I've been used to drawing since 2003.

After getting my new computer around a month ago, I decided to draw the other three directions for my sprite's facing and update it with the added white from some of my newer art.

Not sure if I ever posted here? Welp, here goes

The name for my first account (and what I use still on a lot of services, such as steam) was PichuVSLink, which I only really came up with upon finding a picture of a pichu dressed as link. That's were I really started developing my 'internet identity' if you want to call it that.

The name I use nowadays and what I will continue to use, Pikabread, came from a blank mind trying to come up with a name for a tumblr account. What do I like? idk pokémon and bread

While PichuVSLink/Pikabread are my more 'formal' or full names for stuff I generally just go by pichu, which is why I have it in my "first name" field.

The avatar (currently) is a trainer sprite I drew of myself a while back. While not bearing any resemblance to the real me, it's what my trainer looked like the first time I played through Pokémon X.

And the signature is made up of avatar credits, pictures others have drawn of me, and some revolving skypehaus jokes or other nonsense.

My signature is because I got the closest guess for MaGL X2's number of levels. Everyone else was lowballing into the low 100s and I decided to go with 255; we wound up with just over 270 and so since I was so close I was given the Horikawa blessing.

Name-

When I was about 14-15(2004-2005) my twin brother and I had a shared online identity and went by the name Kirby on an mmorpg and in general online on msn messenger and such, around the age of 15-16 I made a character named Kurby(and some called me ku) to distinguish myself from my brothers character. Time went on and I wanted to make a more personal nickname for myself, around that time I was just getting into naruto and was getting my weeb on so I just went with something that sounded Japanese, nosuke is a common suffix on Japanese names, the ku prefix is from Kurby, the I threw Kiro in the middle because I thought it flowed and sounded nicely, like kojiro the blue cuckoo from Zelda oot

The shortened nickname kuki(koo kee) came sometime later



Avatar-
I've been looking for an appropriate avatar, but all of the pictures I've tried are too large, and I don't know how to shrink them without making them look terrible, I'll keep looking, it will probably be some variation of Kirby, or anime character

Sig- also been thinking of things to put here, there is so much I like to share with people but I have a hard time not overdoing things, once I start listing hobbies I go on and on and don't stop, so I'll probably just find a nice quote or something

As a dumb 11 year old, I used to love Pokemon cards and was looking forward to the release of a certain game called "Halo". I mixed the pronunciation of the words "holographic" and "halo" and then spelled it out. I was dumb.

My avatar comes from art for a game I was working on called Decima: The Last Story of Vald, which had to be cancelled because the tools being used to develop it were deprecated. I hope to go back to it at some point.

My signature comes from the game I'm currently working on professionally. It's basically a 3D metroidvania, so it should be interesting.
