BtVS watcher since:
On and off since the beginning, but got hooked in Season 5.
Hanging out at the ATPoBtVS Posting board since:
Round the end of BtVS season 6 - nearly a year after discovering Masq's website. I was an anti-discussion board activist until I actually started reading some posts here.
Origin of posting name:
Ancient Greek prophet. Spent time as a woman and as a man (fun games to play with the Gods!), was blinded and given the gift of prophecy. Loved the story since early high school, and given my gay boy status (on rare occasions, I've even done drag), plus various life experience where I've seen the way the wind blows long before others do, thought it was kinda fitting.
Age / species / day-job:
1/4 of a century old / Pretty much human (unless you count the alter-ego side), male, queer, average looking, prematurely balding with all the appropriate parts (10 fingers/10 toes/etc.) / By day I'm the editor of Las Vegas' gay and lesbian magazine, "Las Vegas Bugle."
Most memorable BtVS/AtS quote:
"Oh my god. I'm the Pushy Queen of Sluttown." (Him, BtVS 7.06) Giggled so hard my alter ego surfaced and demanded to be addressed as such from now on.
My Grandpa Joe. Spent a lot of time with him recently, really got to know how he thinks. Never been a more intelligent, caring and thoughtful man in my life.
9 - primary reason I've been single for about 3 years now.
a. Most memorable thread (by yourself or someone else):
When someone noticed that our Angel acronyms were getting confusing (Spin the Bottle/Slouching Towards Bethlehem=StB) and we all jumped in with clever StB titles for upcoming episodes.
b. Thread that made you first decide to stick around and/or post:
Honestly don't remember. Was around the time of the Season 6 showdown.
c. Thread that made you think the most (by yourself or someone else):
Any time Tchaikovsky, Scoll or Shadowkat deliver a post over 1000 words. I also tend to get really intense whenever the attempted rape of "Seeing Red" pops up.
Why I love this board more than unlife itself:
Originally, I was drawn to the board as a way of validating my little addiction to a "silly TV show." Now, I keep coming back because it's the family I've never met. I've shared more, learned more and cared more with these virtual friends than many of the casual aquaintances in my off-line world.
