Well - an owner once told me that about his dog and, as I was hugging him, he turned around and bit my jaw, I still get pain memory response from it.  I'm more of a Chihuahua, King Charles Spaniel, Jack Russell type of girl... or Cats!

YOUR PROFILE/ADOPTED CHARACTER INFO
Name and nickname: Ceregorn/Ceri
Joined the forum on: 20th January 2010
Favorite posting place on the Forum: I haven't been here long enough to develop posting habits... Yet. MWU-HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Ahem! Sorry about that. Embarrassed
Why did you choose that name/character?: It's the name of the lead character from an abandoned fantasy novel I started in my teens.
What made you register on this forum?: Curiosity and a desire to stretch my imagination outside of my own head.

IF YOU COULD....
Live anywhere (in any world you want) where would that be?: IRL, I've always fancied the west country. Fantasy wise... Probably Middle Earth; somewhere around Bree or Chetwood. Maybe Ankh-Morpork on Discworld, if I could aford to avoid The Shades.
Choose your principal occupation/employment what would you be?: IRL, a professional writer. Fantasy wise... Hard to say, really. The occupations that are fun to play (Warrior! Ranger! Thief!), probably wouldn't be much fun to live. Something where no-one tries to stick bits of pointy metal into me on a regular basis. Tongue
Change anything in your life what would that be?: A bit more fiscally secure. I don't care about rich, I just wouldn't mind not having to worry about the heating bill, you know? Wink
Be any animal (real, extinct, legendary/imaginary) what would you be?: I like being a human very much. Opposable thumbs are very useful and I'd hate to give them up.
Choose your own parents/family who would you pick?: I couldn't wish for better ones than I have.
Dictate fashion trends what sort of clothes would you put people in?: I wouldn't. (Dictate fashion, I mean. Not that I wouldn't put people in any clothes.) So long as people are happy and comfortable in what they wear, it's fine by me.
Choose anybody who ever 'lived' (so dead, legendary/imaginary) as your soulmate who would that be?: I'm married to her.
 
 
Anything else you'd like to share with us?
Not right now. There may be future addendums though.

Comments about your picture(s):



FAVOURITE THINGS (you can have more than 1 if you want!)
Colour: Blue-green
Food: Italian, some rice-dishes. NO seafood
Beverage/Tipple: Fruit juice, coffee, wine
Flower: None, they are so overrated
Season: As long as it ain’t summer. The artist in me prefers Autumn, great lighting and colours
Book: Red Storm Rising (Tom Clancy), LotR (so yeah, all three), The Hobbit, Perry Rhodan (an ongoing sci-fi novel), The Deathgate Cycles (Weiss and Hickman)
Movie: Pulp Fiction, Legend, NOT the LotR movies (they SO destroyed my imagination, I hate them)
Actor or Actress: John Travolta (he just keeps getting better), Clint Eastwood (I can’t understand why he never played James Bond. I can see him leaning over Telly Savalas “go ahead, make my day” ), Jodie Foster (although I get a bit bored sometimes by the accent. Can’t she act as if she’s not from California? She’s an actress for crying out loud)
TV Show: Right now: Spartacus, Foyle’s War. Back in the old days: Blake’s 7, dr. Who (the old version), Happy Days (I was soooo convinced I was as cool as The Fonz by wearing a white T-shirt and a black leather jacket. Which, btw, was not a small feat considering the cold winters here up in the mountains)
DVD or Video (Blue Ray – whatever): The only video tape I haven’t thrown away is the original videotape of the Kennedy assassination. Must have it somewhere. No wait, I have two: Army of Darkness, maybe the best B-movie ever.
CD: Eden – Everything But The Girl
Singer/Band: Duran Duran, Everything but the Girl, Evanescence, Anouk, Stan Getz, Roger Waters, Pink Floyd, Snap, whatever fits the mood really
Song:
Fast Food Restaurant: I avoid it if I can
Board Game: Risk, Axis and Allies, Trivial pursuit
Computer Game: Red Alert, Warcraft
Musical Instrument: I’m musically impaired, but I love to listen to guitar (electric or acoustic) and saxophone
Cologne or Perfume: Nothing beats the odors of an honest days work
Things to do at the Weekend: Cleaning up the mess the boys make during the week
Vacation Location: actually I hate vacation. Again, it’s so overrated
Word or Phrase: “…anything mechanical, give it a good bash" Colin Maud in The longest day

“Go ahead, make my day.” Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) in Sudden Impact
Sport/athlete: Soccer
Favourite quote: “Read my lips, no new taxes”, George W. Bush at the 1988 Republican Convention. Hilarious. Priceless.

Additional comments: What on earth made me fill this out?

 

YOUR PROFILE/ADOPTED CHARACTER INFO
Name and nickname: Tolotos, or just Tol
Joined the forum on: A week ago
Favorite posting place on the Forum: None yet, but I reckon it’ll be the art thread
Why did you choose that name/character?: Funny you ask. It’s a bit of a story, really. It’s not as you might expect derived from any elvish, Tolkien language. Icho Tolot is a character from the Perry Rhodan series (Scifi). Tolot is a Haloeter, a 3 meter high, six-limbed giant who can transform his skin to a matter harder then “arkonide-steel” (which is about 1003x stronger than the steel we know (wouldn’t King Arthur wish he had that for an amour), and attributed with two rows of razor sharp teeth capable of grinding rock harder than granite, and the metabolism to digest it. Moreover, he’s not just a monster, he’s a scientist, which is made a whole lot easier by the fact that he has two brains.
Anyway, he becomes one of the lead characters and my personal favourite. His close friend, a Terran called Perry Rhodan, calls him Tolotos. Hence the name.
The funny part is that is the name is translatable in Sindarin (a Tolkien-world elven language). Translated it would read something like “He from the seven Isles”.  No reference is made in any of Tolkiens work to “Seven Isles” though, sadly enough.

What made you register on this forum?: I have to admit I have myself to blame. But it certainly helped knowing Janowyn was here. (it’s madness, pure madness)

IF YOU COULD....

Live anywhere (in any world you want) where would that be?: Mhhhhh, not that hard, it would be Rivendell.

Choose your principal occupation/employment what would you be?: A Ranger: seeing the world, plenty adventures

Change anything in your life what would that be?: I don’t want to. As imperfect as it is, it’s mine, and it’s ….well, it’s precious to me.

Be any animal (real, extinct, legendary/imaginary) what would you be?: A Feniks.

Dictate fashion trends what sort of clothes would you put people in?: I have no knowledge nor interest in fashion. Let people wear what they like. I know I do.

Choose anybody who ever 'lived' (so dead, legendary/imaginary) as your soulmate who would that be?:  Aphrodite. I wouldn’t last a week, but oh my god what a week it would be! After that I would die with a big smile on my face.

 

Anything else you'd like to share with us?

Well, no, I think I’ve revealed too much already.
