I've gotten into the habit of naming myself Tw0Face simply because the variants TwoFace, Twoface, Two Face, and Two-Face are already taken on many of the sites I try to register on. It even happened that the name Tw0Face was taken as well. Thankfully, this only happened once.
i have this name on all my socials so i'm just gonna explain the story of my user name.
we playd kahoot in class one time and as a joke i decided to choose the name "nicht emilio" german for not emilio and in the end i liked it so much it became my user name
Slight spoilers for Final Fantasy 5 here, but the game is pretty old so I assume most that want to have played it already. Faris was my favorite party member, and Sarisa was such a pretty name. I've used the name on a couple of other forums as well.
Its a nickname that I got after a wild party, something happened there and the next day people called me Willibab... I never found out why, nor did I ask now that i think about it... I was never really the type to party and its not like I don't recall the night....So I don't know what it was xD
A funny moment happened because of it though (funny to me at least) I was hanging out with a group, I only knew 1 of them, the rest were literally gang members...Weed sellers or something (don't recall why we were with them tbh). Anyway....A reporter came up to us to ask us some questions, after the interview he askes us for our names...The gang members all called themselves hilariously stereotypical nicknames to make themselves seem tough and my friend made one up on the spot...I went last.....And I was like....Uhhh Willibab... I dont know why i find it funny...maybe just the contrast between them and me xD
There's a Rabbit (bunny) on the moon.
My favorite character (left in current profile pic), likes bunnies, and has a bunny ear hoodie. He has also been to the moon before, according to a story. I also like bunnies.
Thus, MoonBunny. Hardly creative, and probably not that cute either. But, it has personal meaning to me, so outside opinions don't matter too much.
The name of the main character of my game. Since that syllable boundary after Arc- sounds a bit rough, the c sound can be dropped(so it also sounds more feminine), thereby making it Art-ica. (Avatar is Saya from NamcoXCapcom and its spin off)
I've probably answered this four or five times on these forums. This thread inevitably comes up every now and again. I wonder if it's because a lot of people choose a "handle" and carry it everywhere?
Okay, some backstory.
I grew up when the movie "Hackers" was a thing. I don't know that it ever got big, but it was a cult classic. One of my favorite movies of all time. They had this thing where they picked "handles". I lived out in the middle of farmer country and I thought that was cool. In a space where anyone could be anything and everyone was anonymous... people were choosing their own names and carrying them with them everywhere they went.
So, when I finally got the internet, that's what I did. I picked a handle. I carry it with me everywhere. If you ever see "Tai_MT" or some variation on it... yeah, pretty much always me.
So, why "Tai MT"?
At the time of being introduced, "Digimon" was a big thing. I enjoyed the show quite a lot as a young teenager since it was basically full of adult themes and childish wonder/dreams. Primarily, it was about children growing up and overcoming overworldly challenges. Or, at least, that's how I saw it. I suppose it's possible to watch it as "a kids' show" too.
I took "Tai" from the main cast. Taichi Kamiya was who I aspired to be. I wanted to be brave. I wanted to be a leader. I wanted to be the person who brought people together and if sacrifices had to be made, I'd be the one to make them. We're so silly when we're kids.
MT, then? Why MT?
To be fair, I didn't adopt "MT" until the third season of Digimon when "Tamers" were introduced. Pokemon was also huge at the time. So, I just put "MT" at the end for "Master Tamer". Little bit of a silly ego trip thing. But, honestly, who doesn't do that crap at 15/16?
So, here we are. Tai MT. It just sticks with me, I suppose. My "alter ego" if you will. I take it with me everywhere. It's always my screen name. Always my profile name. Doesn't matter that it's silly and childish now. It's a reminder of who I am and where I come from.
I still want to be that person I saw Taichi Kamiya was. I still want to "be the very best, like no one ever was". I still want to swipe cards and Digi-modify. Maybe it's weird to carry a piece of my childhood with me as part of my adulthood. Maybe it's weird to carry my childhood aspirations and dreams as part of who I am as an adult, when everyone discards them.
But, here we are. Still chasing the Crest of Courage. Still very much a child and very much an adult.
Maybe there's a lesson in there somewhere. Maybe not. Maybe it's just a cute story about a stupid screen name.
Well, okay, I lied. I do have other names, but they're more for "Roleplaying" purposes rather than as an extension of myself. They are characters in their own right.
Still, even if you see Selece Estibule, Fireldake Estibule, or Lucky Duke out and about in a game, you can bet the account holder's name is "Tai MT".
I was listening to songs by Chuck E Cheese's voice actor (Jaret Reddick from Bowling for Soup) when the meds I was taking for my stomach virus apparently stopped working. I can't take my next dose until morning, but it's no use anyway. I'm officially sick again. Of course, I'll definitely take the next dose either way, but it's useless now.
