Greetings mortals! :D

Postby ebonyrose » Fri Feb 05, 2010 9:01 pm

(This said I can be as in depth as I like... >:] This shall be fun!)

Hullo!
I'm Karen, generally known as Ebony in the marvelous world of the interwebs. I'm pretty new to the whole manga and anime thing, but let me just thank you all first; this site has done a lot to get my mom used to the idea of wholesome manga and anime.

Little story about that...
When I was about 12, I started taking a liking to the drawing style and asked her if I could get some books about it. She promptly told me it was demonic (as in, the drawing style itself...) and that I should never mention it again. That same day, we went to the library and she got me a book on drawing manga. :p So, here I am 3 years later, just as talentless as I was back then. ^_^ That doesn't stop me from loving it though; I've just recently convinced her to let me read some, and this site is primarily where I found my reviews. So.... thanks! XD Hopefully, I can contribute some and not be so much of a leech anymore.

I tend to watch more anime than read manga, but a few favorites from both worlds are Doubt, Death Note, Azumanga Daioh, and Skip Beat. (Actually, those are the only ones I've actually finished. XD Like I said, I'm really new to this.)

Things that are also semi important:
*I'm a Christian: I got saved 5 years ago. ^_^ As my awesomely-southern pastor would say; "Weeeeell glory!"
*I just turned 15, and thus I can read a whole new age level of manga here! >:D YUS! So, on that subject I'm also ahead a grade and I start dual enrolling in my local college in a year. *shudder* And I get my permit this summer. ^_^
*I like talking about myself way too much. O_o Sorry...
*Writing is my passion, though not necessarily my talent. Lord willing, I'll be an author when I grow up, but we'll see. I've got a lot to learn...
*That being said, I'm probably going to end up haunting your RPG forums. >:]
*When I was 4, I tried to kill a kid in my daycare with a plastic knife. Thus, I've been homeschooled ever since. Actually, now-a-days, I go to school once a week and get my homework for the rest of the week, so it's only pseudo-homeschooling.
*I am terrified of roaches.
*Asterisks are awesome. They're bullet points, emphasis, action tags and just plain awesomeness all rolled into a delightful sushi roll of joy and love. Plus, they can make this little face thingy: ^(*-*)^

So... Yeah. :p I'm done...

@Goldenspines: Hmm... You seem somewhat familiar! :p Hehe, thanks for the welcome!
@Mithandir: Bwhaha, yay! XD
@Tsukuyomi: I shall indeed. :) (Actually, I already have! XD)
@Reon: Che-yeah! *takes a bow* (Well, I feel special now ^_^)
@Rocklobster: O_o That is an awesome emoticon... it's like a super-sneaky-awesome-ninja-stealth-a-hug... I've made some in the past for a magazine I was a part of several years ago, but I rarely have the dedication to keep up a blog. Still... it would be nice to have one, just to back up stories and stuff that I don't want to lose. The website I have (http://www.eternallyebony.webs.com <--Mini-plug! :p ) is actually known about by a few of my friends and all, so I can't post some other secrety thingies...
This shall be updated when I decide that I have something interesting enough to say! Until then, let's watch this little smiley guy slam his head into a wall!

Hey, welcome to CAA! I'm a former Running Start student (AKA "dual enrollment," as you call it), and it rocked. Are you headed in a particular direction with the college classes yet, like a major or something?

Never heard it called Running Start before... I like it! :D
And no, I really have no idea what I'm looking for, major-wise. For now though, I only have to worry about getting the credits done for the scholarship, so we'll see how it goes once I'm done with that and actually have to make a decision. xD

Unbroken spirits eh? Too late for that. v_v /emo XD

Eh, sounds good enough for me. ^_^ I've been on another forum for so long, it'll be nice to hang out with a bunch of people that I'm not completely sick of yet. (I'm... nicer than that sentence sounded. O_o ) I shall press onward to that undisclosed number! >:0 ^_^

Ah, lessee... New favorite manga...
Probably Yotsuba&!.
As for anime, my new favorite is probably Ouran High School Host Club. I was also pretty intrigued by Darker than Black, but gave it up halfway through. Dunno why. I should probably pick that up again. Right now, I'm in the middle of Black Butler. I'm not sure if I love it or hate it yet. O_o
