Tropers/NanoMoose, a lady (rather than moose) who turned her usual handle into a WikiWord for the sake of convenience. Student, wannabe writer, video game addict and slavish Looking Glass Studios groupie, she is rumoured to be Australian, despite a suspicious fondness for tea, dislike of Vegemite and skin that bursts into flame upon contact with the rays of the daystar.

Intensely passionate about writing in general, storytelling in particular, and the need for stories to be celebrated and explored wherever they happen to occur - be it within literature, film, animation, or video games.

She spends her days locked in a room with ten million books, correcting the grammar and spelling of the world in between bouts of education, and appears to be sustained only by macaroni and periodic carbonated beverages.

Young. Longwinded. Owns several hoodies.

!! This troper is disturbingly and obsessively knowledgeable about the following things:

* {{Creator/Pixar}} and Pixar's works.
* Valve's [[VideoGame/HalfLife achievements]] in [[VideoGame/{{Portal}}interactive entertainment]].
* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment''
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' (particularly ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'').
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect''
* ''VideoGame/DragonAge''
* ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon FEAR]]'', though it has yet to actually ''frighten'' me. Oh well. Hallucinations!
* Looking Glass Studios and [[VideoGame/{{Thief}} related]] [[VideoGame/SystemShock products]], as well as just about anything its ex-staff members go on to make that doesn't require clicky plastic guitars.
* Like ''VideoGame/{{Bioshock}}'' ([[VideoGame/{{Bioshock2}} and]] [[VideoGame/{{BioshockInfinite}} sequels]]).
* And ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'', but not the sequel.
* ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia'', particularly the more recent 3D games.
* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreed'', up until the Stupidness quotient became unbearable - right around the time Ezio appeared in a second game.
* Okay, [[InTheHood basically anything with a major character in it who wears a hood]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}''
* ''VideoGame/{{Spec Ops The Line}}''
* ''VideoGame/{{The Walking Dead}}''
* ''VideoGame/FallenLondon''
* Okay, mainly video games.
* Which should probably make the addition of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' no surprise.
* Or ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''.
* Maybe ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''.
* And ''Webcomic/{{Digger}}''.
* But not ''Webcomic/{{Kagerou}}''. It's totally great.
* ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale''. My favourite episode is 'A Beautiful Dream'.
* Creator/ChristopherNolan
* Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin (specifically, ''[[Literature/EarthseaTrilogy Earthsea]]'').
* Creator/NeilGaiman (specifically, ''[[ComicBook/TheSandman Sandman]]'').
* Creator/TerryPratchett (specially, ''[[Literature/{{Discworld}} Discworld]]'').
* Creator/DianaWynneJones
* You may be sensing a trend.
* Creator/JossWhedon
* Creator/TimSchafer
* Creator/ChrisAvellone
* ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'', because puns and how much I unfortunately relate to Will Graham. Also, it's a very pretty show.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' and [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra related]].
* ''StarWars'' and the EU...intermittently.
* Creator/FrictionalGames, or to use their informal name, Scaring the Howling Bejesus Out of Our Fanbase Studios.
* ''ComicBook/{{Saga}}'', for the author's answer regarding worldbuilding: "Whatever looks awesomest." (Well, also because of the touching, stark and hilarious portrayal of a conflict spanning a galaxy's worth of sides and a married couple made of adorable. All part of the awesome.)
* ''ComicBook/{{Lucifer}}'' because being a Catholic makes everything about reading it better.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', specifically the twelve-episode main series for its precision, beauty, and uplifting core.
* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' because duh.
* Also, [-also, um. [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse The MCU]]-]. ''Shhhh.''
* '''Note:''' I am willing to mock every one of these things on the understanding that it is with the uttermost love that I do so.
* '''Additional Note:''' I am not on this wiki to talk about why I dislike anything because that's dull. Assume that I ''know'' whatever I'm talking about is flawed and that I love it anyway. There is no such thing as objectively bad entertainment, only technically bad. I think long and deeply on these things and smash people with WallsOfText if I believe they misunderstand this. This is a pre-emptive apology if you encounter me in a crusading mood and find yourself confused, frightened, annoyed or bored: I'm very sorry! I steer clear of YMMV and similar pages for this reason, but I haven't been able to squash the impulse completely.

!!This troper contains examples of:

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: When I was young, I often received the comment that I was away with the fairies. Getting older just means I can expand my list of mythical travelling partners and write field reports.
* ExpospeakGag: For reference, see last paragraph of preamble.
* GrammarNazi: I read a lot. This is one side effect.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: As has undoubtedly been made apparent.
* YourMileageMayVary: I have my biases. I try to stay out of arguments, because it's the internet and FailureIsTheOnlyOption. Still, some convictions I hold can make that button really ''tempting''...
** ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'' questions the player's (and developers'?) motivations in pursuing a heroic fantasy that hinges wholly upon ever-more-realistic violence. This is a good question, and it is a good game. Indifferent gameplay, but a compelling and well-presented story.
** The ending of ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' was fine. The Extended Cut was fine, too. The game itself was great!
** Multiplayer and single-player should ''never'' occur in the same game.
----
!!Contributions:

* An incredible amount of [[SerialTweaker Serial Tweaking]]. Editing pages four separate times to fix four tiny spelling errors, that kind of thing. Um, sorry.
* Filled out the ''Characters/{{Prototype}}'' CharacterSheet after it was launched. Roughly seventy-five percent of the page's content was added by me. The second game...well, can go more or less directly to hell.
* Various ''{{VideoGame/Thief}}'' examples scattered throughout the wiki. Nothing related to the reboot, though. The reboot is a blight upon the franchise.
* Documenting my abject and virulent hate for the [[DarkerAndEdgier direction]] taken by Ubisoft in the ''[[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia Sands of Time]]'' trilogy. Also, a passionate defence of the rebooted game and especially Princess Elika.
* A refusal to conform to American English. Grey is a colour. ''Nobody can take it from me.''
* Innumerable tiny formatting, punctuation, spelling, grammar and clarity tweaks. I like words!
* Circle brackets are pretty.
