Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've tried many time to describe myself with varying results. I
never feel that I quite get myself right, so this time I'm not even
going to try; I'll leave that to a few different voices. Just a
quick explanation before they get going though. I'm an amateur
writer (mostly fantasy), and I've been dreaming up stories and
characters for years, and a few of those characters have decided to
take up residence in my head. It'll be those three that write this
profile, you could say they have a unique inside prospective.
They'll introduce themselves as they go.
I guess I'll start this off since I have the dubious honour of
being the oldest one in here. Name's Wings, and before you ask yes
his screen name came from me. I've been kicking around since Adam
was in grade school. If you're wondering about the name, it's for
my defining feature (I'm not exactly human, and Adam isn't very
creative with names).
Hey now, thats being a bit harsh. My name isn't that
W: You're name is Gaia, thats not exactly an uncommon name
G: Maybe not, but I'm an Air spirit, so while it may not
be original at least it's not a normal usage.
At least the two of you have names, I don't have a full name yet,
just a nick name. So for now I guess the rest of you can call me
Wolf. Oddly enough I'm the only human member of this trio, the
nickname just comes from a mishap I had as a child. To avoid
confusion I'll preface my comments with an O instead of a W.
W: Always the thoughtful one eh?
O: Yeah, but aren't we getting a little side tracked? We're
supposed to be describing Adam.
G: We've got plenty of space to do that in the other sections.
Besides, don't you think the readers want to know more about
W: If they want to they can ask Adam. Wolf is right, we should
start doing what we're here to do. And we've gone on long enough in
this section already so lets move on.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
G: Besides being completely ineffective at putting our stories to
paper you mean? He's working at a library and studying
O: I'm not really sure if there's anything more we can say here to
jazz this section up a bit.
W: How about where he's going?
O: You mean OCAD?
O: So that took an extra line, and didn't really jazz it up at
G: I can help there: He's also slowly going insane from the
monotony of his current boring day-to-day existence! Someone snap
him out of it before he actually snaps! Unless that would let us
get out more often... On second thought, leave him be.
O: **Sigh** As if letting us write his profile doesn't make him
seem crazy enough. On to the next section before any more harm can
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
W: Well the obvious thing for this section would be writing.
There's a small problem with that tho-
G: He doesn't actually write anything!
W: Right. He has a hard time putting pen to paper, though that is
his preferred method when he does sit down to do it. Typing it up
O: As such we can't really say he's good at writing. I guess saying
he's good at creating worlds and characters could work. But theres
no empirical evidence of that.
G: So if any of you message him, try asking for a short story or
something. He needs a good kick in the ass every once in a while to
O: Thats actually a good idea, well done Gaia.
G: Thanks. You guys can ask for recipes too, Adam likes to bake and
he's got a few gems up his sleeves.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
O: I've been thinking about this section, I think we could each put
what we would notice first about him.
G: Wouldn't that require the readers to know a bit more about us
for them to take away anything useful from our commentary?
O: ... Didn't expect that from you, but yeah I suppose you're
W: Guess I'll go first, I haven't spoken for a while. The thing you
should know about me for this is that I'm really relaxed and
somewhat impulsive. Which, on first observation is the exact
opposite of what Adam appears to be. When he meets new people he
tends to get really nervous and uptight. Get to know him though and
he calms down a lot.
O: I'll go next. I'm also kind of a go with the flow kind of guy,
but I always have a goal of some sort in mind. I wouldn't survive
the story Adam's got in mind for me if I wasn't this way, but thats
something you've got to ask him about. I guess what I'd notice
first is that he's a bit scattered. He has goals, and about a
million different plans for how to get there. He's been getting
better with this, but it still needs some work.
G: Why wouldn't you expect me to make that comment? I wanted to
describe ourselves in the first section.
O: I wouldn't expect it from you because like Adam you can be a bit
unfocused. Though if you get an idea in your head you set about it
with bull-headed determination.
G: And thank you Wolf for saving me the trouble of describing
O: I walked right into that one didn't I?
W: Yeah, she played you there.
G: And thank you Wings for pointing out my gender for
anyone who didn't associate the name Gaia with being female.
W: That's stretching it a bit.
O: Just let it go.
G: Before we run out of space here I think the first thing I'd
notice about Adam is probably that like me, he can get quite
stubborn. Sure he'll have a million different ways to get to a
goal, but he'll keep trying till eventually he's either exhausted
his options or reached that goal. If he could focus his energy a
little better the three of us could've been in best-sellers by
O: That may be taking things a little far. But it does wrap up this
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
W: Lets try and keep this one a little shorter guys, we don't need
to define everything.
G: Everything is all that exists. Every object and entity is a part
of everything, including all physical bodies and in s-
O & W: Stop that.
G: You guys are no fun.
O: Anyway, Adam is an avid reader. He reads a lot of
fantasy, hence his wish to write it. But he'll pick up any book if
it seems interesting enough to him. Got a book you like, and want
other people to read. Send the title and author, he might give it a
W: His taste in music is pretty varied to. He'll listen to rock,
some pop, though most of it drives him insane, jazz,
chiptunes, remixed video game music and many others. Though there
are a few genres that tend to burst his eardrums: any variety of
metal will do it, as well as most rap. Though the same principal
applies to music as to books, got a band you want to promote? Send
a song his way, he'll give them a listen.
G: Guess that leaves me with food. The best way to describe him is
being picky, without being picky. There are certain ingredients
that he just can't stand, but steer clear of those and he's fairly
adventurous. I'd try and count the number of different
nationalities food's he's had and enjoyed, but I don't think he can
remember them all.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
G: Can the three of us count for three different things? This
profile is getting long. Nobody's going to read it all.
O: I think we count for only one. But we can keep this short and
sweet. Wings I'll leave it to you. You've got five left. Go!
W: He wouldn't be able to survive without his friends. And
Paradoxically he wouldn't last long without time to himself. He
goes a bit batty if alone for too long, and gets absolutely drained
if around people for too long. Three left... A good book, good
food, and his crazy dreams. Seriously they're never normal, but
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
O & G & W: Us.
W: Or at least thinking to us. I'm not sure if he'd go
insane without us, or if he is insane.
O: Little bit of both maybe?
G: That might have been me. Sorry.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
W: His Friday nights are pretty typical. He could be seeing
friends, or just relaxing at home after a long week.
O: Oddly enough Wednesday nights are more interesting, as he's
usually at a board game meetup.
G: As geeky/nerdy as this sounds he wants to get a D&D campaign
going with a few friends, but is lacking anyone experienced enough
to be a DM. If any of you know someone who would be willing to help
with that (or are in a campaign willing to take on a newbie or two)
give him a shout.
W: Should we have put that under the next heading?
O: It isn't really all that private though.
W: A good point.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
G: I think letting the three of us out here counts as being pretty
O: As much as that sounds like a cop out she's right. Beyond that
though... as much as Adam is an introvert, he's pretty open once
you get to know him.
W: I'm fine with that being this section's commentary. Moving on.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
O: If you think you can deal with the guy we've described, as well
as the three of us then by all means send a message his way.
W: We don't really surface too often though. So get him to
G: I've already given a couple of reasons to message him. I'm done.
Hope you all enjoyed us rambling.
O: Yeah. And sorry it went on for so long.
Post-Script: Congrats on making it this far! Now you get to read
the disclaimer saying I'm not actually crazy, just a bored creative
type. Hope you enjoyed my little attempt to do something different.
