I got my nickname ikickyour from when I was younger around 12 years old, I played a lot of Starcraft if your familiar with that game...It's basically a strategy game with building troops and defeating the opposing player your against, much like chess but more complicated more rules and more options and of course more fun than chess in my opinion.

Anyway when I played Starcraft I wanted to choose a "cool" nickname that I thought sounded awesome, so the first one I made was ikickyourass, but it was too long of a nickname and they wouldn't let me create it not because of the word '[bleep]' but because it was merely too long of a nickname.

So I had to shorten it too just ikickyour, and for some reason It's been a habbit for me to always use the name ikickyour in forums/chat rooms/online games and etc...

Plus, I think it stands out since there is no suffix at the end and makes people think sometimes "Wait, His name has nothing after the I Kick Your...?! I kick your what....?" LOL, So this is kind of creative in my opinion since people can put the last word of what im kicking and "fill in the blank".

Araeana Bloodmoon is the name of my blue-haired, red-eyed, quarter-Elven swordswoman (say that ten times fast!). If anyone wants to read her story, let me know, I am glad for critisim. Hopefully, she will be in a D&D-like thing, but that is unclear as of yet. I have other names too (Cho Chod Lou, Juhani Evarinya, etc.), but this is the one that actually has something other than a name to it.

Well mine started off as an inside joke/nickname back in high school. See, me and my friends used to make parody comics of certain shows and what not. For example, there was a comic we made for Yu-Gi-Oh. We are always the characters used in the comics, fashioned after the show we were making the parody of. One day, one of our friends decided to start calling me Inu-Josha, after the show Inu-Yasha. At a later point, we found out Inu means Dog and Yasha means Demon. So my nickname changed to Dog-Josha. Even though my name was a spin on an anime character, it lead to our first, and probably only, semi original comic. A really good comparison for the style used in this comic would be South Park. In other words, the original story would be unique, while parodies are used in most of the episodes as a plot device.

Oh wait... after that long explanation, I realized that I still use Granz00 on this site... I guess that is the downfall of never logging in manually. Long story short (more of a short story actually...), it is a character from a game (think its called Tree of Mana). The 00's where just tacked on for no reason other then liking the number zero.

Btw, can we change nicknames, or is that a staff only option?

Edit - Dog-Josha is not quite a family friendly comic. However, I can scan it and make a copy on my computer, then send it to anyone who wants to read it, as long as that is allowed on here.
