Describe Tropers/ShadicTheHedgehog here.

I'll give it a shot, then. My name is, for the purposes of editing tropes, Shadic the Hedgehog. It's pronounced like "Shade-ic" by the way, I tend to do odd pronunciations a lot. I also tend to spell things the British way, even though I'm a born-and-raised American. I've got an account on [[]], where I had to add "Author" to the end of my name because someone else apparently had it, and for some reason they won't let me change it, even though I can't find the other guy with my name.

As for anything else, I have what is known as [[UsefulNotes/AspergerSyndrome Asperger's Syndrome]] (I always try to pronounce the first "s" like a "z" just to keep immature jokes at bay. Doesn't always work). My obsessions are {{Anime}}, {{Manga}}, [[{{Literature}} Books]], [[VideoGames RPGs]], and writing. I have since narrowed this category down to "stories in general." Currently trying to [[strike: finish up my first story, AStepOntoChronos, on]] write several stories at once on, but also trying to start up an original novel series called "Origin" with each book having a title afterwords like "Book of Water" or "Book of Life," which would make the whole title of one of the books, "Origin: Book of Water."

I also adore heat and darkness, with my favourite colours being black and red. For completely unrelated reasons, I assure you. I like darkness because I'm photosensitive (or is it the other way around?), and I like Black and Red because ShadowTheHedgehog is one of my favourite protagonist characters and [[FinalFantasyVI Kefka]] is both my favourite and my most hated video game character. I'm also a firm believer in DarkIsNotEvil and LightIsNotGood, so I tend to refer to good and evil as "spiritual" Light and Darkness, and the aforementioned tropes with "physical" light and darkness.

Due to my love of darkness (and the fact that I pop my collars up whenever possible), my best friend's friends have taken to calling me "{{Dracula}}" or "Drac" for short. After mentioning this at work one day ([=McDonald's=] at the time, btw), one of the managers decided to tell everyone else. Not that I mind, since two of my top ten characters are related to Dracula. First, there's [[{{Hellsing}} Master Alucard]] who [[spoiler:''is'' Dracula]], then [[CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight Lord Alucard]] who [[spoiler: is the {{Dhampyr}} son of Dracula]].

My goal in life is to become a VoiceActor. Whether for anime or games or just plain old American cartoons makes no difference. I just want to play a part.

I tend to get easily distracted by this site, making it a bit of an AttentionDeficitOohShiny for me, but I'm working on it. [[IncrediblyLamePun Which is why I'm making a contributor page.]]

I'm on the TroperDatingService page, and the relevant pages of TroperDemographics and WhereAreYouFrom.

!!Tropes what apply to me (so far as I can tell):

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Being a rather geeky nerd-type in school (even in elementary/grade school), I tended to be picked on a lot. At first, I got mad, nowadays I just ignore it.
* ApologizesALot: But only when I know I've done something I should apologize for. I also tend to over-punish myself when I've done something stupid.
* [[{{Ptitlem4f37xq499gk}} Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!]]: As noted above, I'm occasionally easily distracted, usually by a good book, game, anime, or something similar.
* BasementDweller
* BewareTheNiceOnes: I'm normally fairly gentle and subservient, but when I get mad...
* BigEater: Though it would probably help if I ate more often.
* {{Bookworm}}
* BornInTheWrongCentury: If I were transported back in time to somewhen like the Rennaisance Age or Victorian Era, I'd probably be able to fit in easily enough. I'd really just miss technology a lot, but I can cope well without it.
* BrilliantButLazy: For certain values of "brilliant."
* CatchPhrase: "That's your fault." (Occasionally becomes "That's my fault.")
** Also, occasionally, "Proud to be Weird."
* [[EvilLaugh Semi-Maniacal Not-At-All-Evil Laugh]]: I scare people with my laughter.
* FamousAncestor: ''Maybe.'' On my maternal grandfather's side, I could be related to RobRoy [=MacGregor=].
* ForgetsToEat: Or, occasionally, Too Lazy To Cook Something To Eat.
* FreakyIsCool: Bordering on NightmareFetishist.
* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: But sometimes, Grampa doesn't get it.
* HumbleHero
* IAmWhatIAm, and even if I don't entirely know who I am.
* IgnoreTheFanservice: Only if it gets in the way of the story.
* InsistsOnPaying
* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: UsefulNotes/AspergerSyndrome, anyone?
* LeaningOnTheFurniture: Or Thin Air, for comedic reasons.
* {{Literal Minded}}ness: JustForFun
* [[{{Ptitle3zaap0y7ym6o}} Mathematician's Answer]]: Common to my family.
* NeutralGood
* NiceToTheWaiter
* TheNicknamer: I've nicknamed quite a few people at work. And most of the time, they know who I'm talking about without my having to explain.
* NoSmoking. Period.
* NotSoStoic: I have moments of manic energy, but otherwise...
* PopularIsDumb: More like ''Being'' Popular Is Dumb.
* RhymesOnADime: [[SubvertedRhymeEveryOccasion when I feel like it.]]
* RidiculousProcrastinator: It took me around ''five years'' to finish writing AStepOntoChronos. And I now have, like, five other stories I'm working on right now.
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: Not as often as I used to, though.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: To help me confuse people. And I spelled it without looking it up, too!
* ShorterMeansSmarter[=/Faster=]: Averted. I'm of average height, but when I was young I wanted to be short because SonicTheHedgehog was short and fast.
* SmartPeoplePlayChess: Does it matter if I lose half the time?
* SomebodyElsesProblem: I almost seem to have my own personal [=SEP=] Field, which is both helpful and annoying.
* StrokeTheBeard: Half the reason I have one.
* TrademarkFavouriteFood: Chicken. And Pizza. Oh, and I Like Spam!
* UndyingLoyalty: Caused me some trouble when my ex-fiancee broke up with me, and it took me a couple weeks to cope.
