[[CaptainObvious Murky Muse, here]]. I generally lurk around, and besides a few random examples I haven't contributed much (I did write most of DarthWiki/TheDarkSide). I am probably most known for acting as a MagicalGirl and being the "Token Responsible [[NotSoAboveItAll (somewhat)]] Adult" of the Troper Shipping and Troper Dating Service thread.


[[TroperWall/MurkyMuse My Troper Wall can be found here.]]


Also please ignore my sockpuppet...I mean, EvilCounterpart: @/{{Lorelei}} [[FallenHero the]] [[PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Witch]]. She's kind of...unstable.


My main obsessions consist of (in no particular order):
* AvatarTheLastAirbender
** TheLegendOfKorra
* TheDresdenFiles
* FullMetalAlchemist (specifically the manga and Brotherhood)
* HarvestMoon
* HeraldsOfValdemar
* OrderOfTheStick
* PrincessTutu
* PuellaMagiMadokaMagica
* RiseOfTheGuardians

[[folder: Tropes Associated With Me:]]
* AfraidOfNeedles
* AlliterativeName: Obviously my handle. Also my real name.
* AmericanAccents: My dixie accent is more noticeable than I thought, according to other tropers.
* BewareTheQuietOnes / BewareTheNiceOnes: I can count the number of times I've been truly angry on one hand. One involved giving TheReasonYouSuckSpeech (at a very inappropriate time at that).
* BigEater: I go through phases of eating everything in sight or barely eating at all.
** ForgetsToEat: When I'm in a barely eat enough to survive phase. Or if I get really into reading a book.
* BrainyBrunette
** EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: I can't keep a tan, no matter how much time I regularly spend in the sun.
* BrilliantButLazy: I'm certainly no genius, but I am slightly above average. And I have horrid study habits/self-disciple to get things done.
* BrutalHonesty: Known for this in real life.
* ClubPresident: Surprisingly became this in college, though it obviously didn't fit the Japanese idea of club president.
* CoolCat: My cat according to @/ElRigo (see quotes)
* CuddleBug: Not usually, but I become one whenever I'm sick. For some reason no one wants to cuddle with me when I want to cuddle.
* ElementalEyeColors: The person with a life-long obsession with the ocean has BlueEyes.
* FemmeFatalons: People have said I have "witch hands" due to my naturally long nails (which most people can only get with fake nails and regular manicures).
* ForScience: "Most people go to the beach for vacation, we go to the beach [[ForScience for science!]]"
* GenderBlenderName: My first name is unisex.
* GirlinessUpgrade: As a kid I was very much a {{Tomboy}}. In college I started to dress "girly-er".
** TomboyWithAGirlyStreak
* HotScientist: I am a graduate student working on my masters in marine science. I've also been told I'm fairly attractive. Well, more cute/adorable than hot/sexy.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: For as long as I can remember I've been labeled as [[TheSmartGuy the "smart one"]] of my family and often described as "smart" or "intelligent" by many teachers/acquaintances. This has given me a bit of an ego, but also an at times crippling fear that I'm not near as intelligent as everyone seems to think.
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]: Been seriously accused of this. There might be some truth in it.
* MyersBriggs: I'm an INTJ, aka a ''Mastermind''. [insert EvilLaugh]
* NeutralGood: According to various alignment tests. Probably about right.
* NoSenseOfDirection: I once got lost on a straight road...Okay, there's more to it than that, but still: a freaking straight road.
* NotAMorningPerson: I have no problem getting up at the first ring of my alarm, but I'm pretty much on auto-pilot. And grumpy about it.
* OlderThanTheyLook: In my twenties but regularly get mistaken for about sixteen.
* TheQuietOne
* RelationshipUpgrade: Dating @/{{terlwyth}}
* SheCleansUpNicely: I got to pull this off a time or two.
* [[SomewhereThisIndexIsCrying Somewhere, A Marine Biologist Is Crying]]
* TheStoic
** NotSoStoic: Past few years I've slowly become less stoic. I like to think of it as character development in being more secure about showing emotion.
* SugarAndIcePersonality
** {{Kuudere}}
* SuperOCD: Don't actually have the disorder, but I do often act how the trope describes. Justified by my career choice.
** I have a funny story about this. Once I was proctoring a test for a non-major biology class. As the students turned in their sheets, I noticed they were letting the stack go all over the place. I thought it strange since in all my (science) classes every few of us would straighten the stack. Then I realized it was an odd representative of where the OCD science major stereotype came from.
* TrueCompanions: How I view my friends.
* WashingtonGambit: What I consider my personal [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome CMoA]] in highschool consists of putting nightcrawlers into the lockers of those that rolled my house a few days before, which caused mass chaos and sent the teachers on a headhunt. I pulled a SarcasticConfession to a classmate who joking guessed I did it before actually confessing to the principal. Not only was I not punished, the teachers congradulated me.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Not so obvious now that I'm in my twenties, but as a kid and teenager my mother referred to me as having an "old soul" and acting a few years above my actual age.

[[folder: Troper Siblings:]]
A series of events had led me to adopt four- I mean, eight tropers as my younger siblings.

* @/EgregiousOne: First adoptee. When he started calling me Onee-san, I decided to act the part.
* @/{{Boxen}}: After adopting him a few times in the forum game "Adopt the above poster".
* @/TheMike: More like he adopted me, and I just went with it.
* [[@/{{Ace3469}} Psyche]]: Jumped on the bandwagon as the little sister of the group.
* @/NerdBird: I thought "Hey, Nerd's cool. Why haven't I adopted her?" and then I fixed it.
* @/{{Azure}}: Started referring to me as such.
* @/LiorVal: As Boxen's clone, it was appropriate.
* @/{{Inhopelessguy}}: Because I refused to be one of the many Hopey parents.
* @/{{Otherarrow}}: Because Tomato said we tease each other like siblings.
