  1. Welcome to the new boards! Details here!

  2. Hey Fanficers! In fixing the prefixes something happened and now you can't edit titles. Don't panic! We're looking into what happened and trying to fix it.

'is there a difference between you & your pen name' personality wise?

    I'm not really that differnt from my screen name, not really.

    As Princess1, my main fan fic writing name, I'm pretty much myself, although of course I'll go deeper into fan fic and ideas about star wars then in real life, becuase in real life most people wouldn't know what I was talking about.

    But my personality is pretty much the same.
    Although I'm a bit more of a flirt on line then I am with most real life people. :D


    Then my other screen name, Falcons Girl (its a older one of mine) I've written a little bit of fan fic under that screen name, but not much, I guess its my sillyer side, who knows, I have so many screen names its crazy!

    Princess1, Falcons Girl, Gem, IamaSkywalker, loveableblonde......lots. :D

    The difference maybe subtle for me, but I'm more concerned about what people think of me here than in real life.

    People's opinions of Kevin are formed through my physical actions, facial expression, body language, speaking voice, etc..

    Knight-Ander's only form of expression is through words, his fingers as they move across the keyboard, and unless I'm writing a story, my creativity stalls (to Kevin's disappointment) when just having a "conversation" on the boards like this.

    ::Wow! I've never talked about myself in the third person before:: :p

    No. I even used my real life nickname. What you see is what you get with me, I don't generally bother to hold back.

    I think there's a great difference between the real me and my online personality. In real life, I tend to ramble all the time. Online, I'm not nearly as conversational. More often than not, I post whatever my post for the night is, and go to bed or whatever.

    I'm also a lot more goofy in real life, I think. Goofiness doesn't come across as easily on the boards.

    i know what you mean rogue. people tend to be more conservative on boards. sometimes my sarcasm can be interpreted as something else.
