Yuri
  • BtVS watcher since: Well, I watched the pilot episode because I was big into Vampire-ish stuff, stopped watching regularly after a few months when I got over the fad. I was such a fickle seventh grader. Engrossed again by mid S3, however, when I finally realized how amazing it was.
  • Hanging out at the ATPoBtVS Posting board since: Um, sometime mid '01, I think Been posting on and off under different names
  • Origin of posting name: which really are never based on much other than what's running through my head. I change names when a) I can't remember my old one, or b) I'm embarrassed about something I've said. I decided to stop changing because I do desire some recognition, I suppose, even if it is embarrassing. I had met Yuri Kochiyama the day I needed a new name little did I know that Yuri is known better as the Russian form of George than a Japanese word for lily. Gender confusion has ensued, but that's always fun.
  • Age / species / day-job: 17 / female / student, and I work in a bookstore part-time.
  • Most memorable BtVS/AtS quote: damn. I am forever bad at things like this. Sorry.
  • Favorite philosopher: My friend Keen.
  • TTMQ: You always need to give yourself room to grow, so 9.5.
  • Strangest thread topic ever posted: Strange shmange
  • Coolest thread topic ever posted: I could no sooner choose a coolest thread than I could choose the best poster.
  • Why I love this board more than unlife itself: Well, I think this is sort of a common beginning... I started seeing these really interesting and confusing things in the show, and mentioned them to some friends. Most started laughing at the words "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," and the rest started talking about how they love that show, and did I hear what so and so said that night and did I see her outfit when she killed that demon. Or the ever popular "damn, that girl/guy's hot." Granted, I can enjoy these conversations to a certain extent, but in search of greener fields, I Googled "buffy philosophy" and eventually ended up here. Here, with an amazing community of brilliant, stimulating, non-judgmental, judgmental, complex, fantastical, hilarious, light hearted, dark hearted, and passionate people. The kind I hope to encounter more of in the physical world.
