How did you come up with your username?
« on: October 24, 2020, 06:05:19 PM »
So yeah, the title is pretty self-explanatory! How did you come up with your username?? Mine was so painfully random but it stuck; I was trying to think of a username and then Truce by TOP started playing, I got bored of trying to think of name ideas, and so I just used Truce as a username and I haven't looked back since JKLHJKL

GETTIN' HICKEYS FROM MY BED BUGS,

I had been through quite a few usernames but infectedmouth has been my most recent and most used by far. I have teeth that had grown in along side my other teeth that were supposed to fall out but never did, leaving me with two clumps of teeth on the top row. I have always liked the “eDgY” tumbr usernames that were like. An adjective or something with a noun, preferably body-related, like hands or mouths or teeth. So I chose the “infected” part because I thought it was cool, and the “mouth” part because of my teeth. So I got infectedmouth and it works.

OKAY HERE WE GO
nocturnalfaery was made up from a former close friend because I wanted a more like...”adult” username for stuff and not the same one ive used since i was like five.
and nocturnalfaery becamed shortened to nocturnal, noccy, noct or noc
hence Noccy
Which i pronounce knock-ee

i've been cygnus since like. 2013? but i picked it because one- i was hardcore into swan lake, and cygnus was my favorite constellation as a result from that. so fast forward 7 years= i'm still into swan lake, i still heavily identify with cyg, and i will probably never change it.

woaH THIS IS SO INTERESTING
I LITERALLY WOULD'VE NEVER GUESSED
except truce,,,, i could guess that one,,, ADFSADF
never would've seen the beatles one coming - but i stan it though because i Live for the beatles i never grew out of my phase
and ngl i've been pronouncing "noccy" wrong this entire time and saying it like gnocchi i-

soooo
i was insomnia since i first started rping. that was mostly because i had acute insomnia and i thought it was fitting and something nobody else had for a username which wow was i wrong though because there was a handful of "insomnia's" and now everyone mistakes me as a different insomnia im asdfadsf
i still want to change my username back to insomnia,,, i mean everyone calls me inny/soma anyway
buT ALSO,, idk i like elysian it just hasn't managed to stick as well as insomnia.
and elysian ? ? ngl i just found an "aesthetic" pin on pinterest that said elysian
and i like the username... but at the same time... i feel like i come off as pretentious by making it seem like i'm calling myself elysian
but hey sue me it was just an aesthetic pinterest thing okay ASDSDF
