Also my computer's broken so there's why I haven't shown up that much except on Tumblr.

Nothing's off limits. My weird obsession with asexual alien frogmen? ASK ME ABOUT IT. My spiritual connection to Krahka? SURE. My spiritual connection to Petey Plane? GO FOR IT. Advice on pixel art? BRING IT. Justifications for my crack ships? AWWWW YEAHHHH I CAN TALK ALL DAY. Why I've been here for so long? MAN I DON'T KNOW ASK ME ANYWAY.
Base (Pixel Princess exclusive)
So let me introduce you to the hobby of mine that I haven't been able to show off to BZP because of the advertising policy.
So dolling. Dolling is a collaborative art process that's based off of paper dolls. People make paper doll Barbie-naked bases and other people take them and add all the hair, clothes, edits, everything to make them come alive. It's a lot of fun. I could explain better but I don't feel like it. If you're interested, just contact me and I can hook you up with some tutorials.
So anyway, I've been doing that for like, eight years now. This is a work in progress of human Gali Mistika. All I need now are the boots, but I still feel like she's missing something. Hmmm...
Anyway, that's what I was looking forward to most, because you have to link to the base artist's site to credit them, so as not to be dishonest about their part in your creation.
That being said, my main blog that I post on is full of swear words, (even though the nsfw tag has only two things in it) so I'm not linking to it. If you know me, you probably know where to find me. (HINT: I'M MOST OF THE SEARCH RESULTS FOR "KRAHKA")
But I am going to be posting so many dolls on this thing and you can't even stop me.
Well I've got neither, since my posts are pretty pointless.
Anyway, I'd make a retrospective, but I don't feel like it. All I gotta say is that if I joined the RPG forum sooner, I'd have a lot more posts. Or maybe not?
A naive Vortixx inventor who climbed the Mountain with teamwork and ingenuity, and believes this can solve all problems! Also she has a giant mech she built herself and a calculator.
A Skakdi of Water who's a pirate with a heart of gold, which is to say, she really likes gold.
A Toa of Iron who's an expert blacksmith who only forges weapons for those who are pure of heart, and puts people who want her weapons through very Zen sorts of tests with no point, except for enlightenment.
A Vortixx warrior poet mercenary who laments the fragmentation of unity that she profits off of.
A Le-Matoran fashion designer who's also a vigilante. Basically Rarity and Batman's Matoran daughter.
That Ta-Matoran guard who has to put on the flowers and welcome everyone to Ta-Koro with his hula moves. He takes this duty very seriously, even if people laugh at him for it.
I haven't RPed here very much, but just so you know, my specialty is playing very silly characters with surprising hidden depths.
Today I was playing d20 Future, as I'm wont to do on Saturdays, and we were also playing with Legos as the GM has a bunch of Legos at his place. And among the Lego pieces was Gali's original mask. My brother and I, who both grew up with Bionicle remarked on it, and reminisced about the good times and about how Gali's my favorite Toa. (Though if we want to get really nerdy, she's my favorite Toa that's had a set made of her. She's my third favorite Toa, after Helryx and Tuyet, but I didn't feel like explaining just how complicated Bionicle got in its later years.)
And one of my friends remarked that her parents never let her have Bionicles, because they were "nerd" toys and her parents didn't want her to grow up to be a nerd. She had to hide the fact that she watched Star Trek from them. When they learned that she played Dungeons and Dragons, they cried, not because it's Satan's Game but because they were afraid she'd never get a boyfriend. (It should be noted that she does have a boyfriend, my brother, who was at the table.) They gave up trying to control her full on nerdery when she started LARPing.
So as much as my parents are driving me up a wall, I'm glad they encouraged my budding nerdiness and didn't restrict me from any hobbies.
I <3 Wookiees

Orientation: Demisexual heterosexual, not that you'd know it with all the fictional girls I crush on.
Grade: Super-Senior. It's like being a Senior, only sadder.
Heritage: Polish-German-Irish-God-Knows-What. I could probably trace my bloodline to Ghengis Khan at some point. Also, my last name is absurdly Italian.

Accent: A sort of stoned out and slightly low pitched Northern Cities accent, with Canadian influences. My voice has also been described by someone that I only know over the internet as "calm and soothing" and "not at all what [he] expected". Because you imagine the voice reading my post to be all like RARGH AWWUGHHHR!!!
Languages: English (native speaker of American English), Japanese (three years of study) Ojibwe (two years of study), Polish (bits and pieces) Maori (bits and pieces), Mandalorian (bits and pieces).
Religion: Hardcore agnostic. If you forced me at gunpoint to pick a religion or lack of religion or whatever, I'd pick Buddhism. But I'd go with the sects that are agnostic and continue living exactly the way I am. Not that I wouldn't complain about my rights being violated.
Political Views: Bitter idealist. Libertarian Socialist with vague anarchist views. Hardcore feminist who knows the importance of intersectionality.
Favorite Bionicle Character: Krahka. Are you surprised?
Favorite Toa Mata: Gali. My first Toa, first name I went by online and still a favorite.
Favorite Toa Metru: ALL OF THEM. Or Vakama, if I HAD to chose. But then again, I like Whenua and Onewa and Matau and Nokama and Nuju . . .
Favorite Toa Inika: Nuparu, though I wish that he'd do more. Because mad science is AWESOME.
Favorite Makuta: The Makuta, duh.
Favorite Dark Hunter: Somewhere between Nidhiki, Lariska and Mimic.
Favorite Matoran: Mavrah. He lived. He died. FOR SCIENCE.

Favorite Swarm-y Thing: BOHROK. Chickt-chickt.
Favorite Order of Mata Nui Member: Helryx, because KICKIN' RAD GRANDMAS YESSSSS.
Favorite Glatorian: Kiina, because she's the only woman I have to chose from. Which sucks. But she doesn't.
Favorite Bionicle Book: Adventures #10: Time Trap. Good ol' fashioned nightmare fuel!

Alignment: Chaotic Good
Star Wars: Jedi Consular, Jolee Bindo style Graywalker of being essentially light side, but hating the Jedi Order for being really boring.
Old Werewolf: Black Fury Galliard, Homid. I'd be the single most laid back Black Fury who has ever lived.
Old Vampire: Malkavian anarch OF DHOOM.
New Changeling: Skitterskulk Beast of the Spring Court. Likely have some sort of meaningless court title that I made up myself. See how long it takes for them to notice that there's nothing backing it up. JUST AS I HAD PLANNED CHINK CHINK.
Dungeons and Dragons: I'd be a Chaotic Good Elven Bard/Wizard. I'd claim to be a worshiper of Vecna, for the lulz. See how long it takes for folks to hate me. I would never ever leave taverns, no matter what sort of treasures the old man promises us. In fact, I would try to make a game of seeing how many old men I could bait into giving me adventures before I can dash all their hopes and dreams of a goblin-free dungeon, a rat-free basement and/or a dragon-free kingdom.
If Planescape were involved: I would be in the Xaositects, though I would be a bit more coherent than most of their members, because I don't have the attention span to do full time scramblespeak. Meh. It's all too consistent anyway. All of my best friends would be Athar, because they have guts. We would hang around in bars in the Lower Ward and mock the Dustmen and the old men who attempt to get us going on adventures. Claiming to worship Vecna would also take on a whole new dimension of lulz in Sigil. Though oddly enough I'd probably be a Cleric of Eris. Since, yeah. Eris.
Old Mage: The Sons of Ether. It'd be a dream come true! THEY LAUGHED AT ME! OH HOW THEY LAUGHED AT ME! BUT I SHALL SHOW THEM ALL!
d20 Modern: Student, Smart Hero/Eventually Field Scientist, maybe? Allegiances to Family, Good and Chaos.
FATAL: Let's not and say we didn't.
Likes: Shiny shiny people, music, art, writing, science fiction, world building, history, pixel art, books, comic books, comedy, joy, science fiction, sleeping, cake, pretty things.
Dislikes: THE MAN TRYING TO BRING ME DOWN, people without respect, the patriarchy, loud noises, draw-maw, people who take things too seriously, the Legacy of the Force, any attempt to get me off my groove, things that I have to do.
Hobbies: Acting, making horrible horrible music, roleplaying games, eating delicious ice cream delights, laughing at fools, quoting Destroyer lyrics in slightly inappropriate contexts, yelling excitedly while waving my hands, dolling, drawing, starting the REVOLUTION, blowing things up, making children gleeful, travelin' through time with John Titor, writing at a million terribles per hours, knowing far too many inane details about fictional worlds, archery, pretending that I'm living at least a hundred years in the past whilst engaging in everyday activities, pretending to be a time traveler, pretending to be a Jedi, reading bucketloads of graphic novels, alternately avoiding people and being obnoxious towards cracking wise, loitering, planning stories that I will never write, pretending to be fictional characters on social networking sites, drinking an absurd amount of tea, enjoying reality, enjoying what I can MAKE reality
