"Video games are bad for you? That's exactly what they said about rock and roll."Round these parts, I go by Aramil, or Ari for short. Feel free to vandalize, it's at the bottom of the page. Also, feel free to trope me as you wish. I spend my days playing video games, sleeping through school, getting high on Mountain Dew, browsing /b/, watching anime, ruining my grades, ignoring my homework and troping. I play three different instruments: Trumpet, guitar, and piano. I am somewhat proficient in all of these. I draw (somewhat poorly), program in Scratch and Python, write fiction, study botany, chemistry, and I am a huge history buff. However, my grades suck.

Things I Like
Anime and Manga
- Death Note. I've read most of the manga, and watched all the anime.
- Eden of the East. The game of giving them ten billion yen to try and save Japan, and the UNUSED idea of having the Selecao hunt down the others by means of Juiz could have worked really well. But I'm done bitching about that for now, so you can expect some fanfiction from me in the future.
- Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete. I feel that this was the only sequel/prequel to FF 7 that retconned the least, and therefore this and FF 7 are the only media in the series I consider canon.
- Full Metal Alchemist. Just starting to watch it, though.
- High School of the Dead. It probably has the best first episode of any anime I've ever watched, and my only complaint was that they tried to poke fun at fanservice by giving a few of the females unreasonably large tits and sound effects when they bounced, along with gratuitous ass/tit shots that bordered on softcore porn. And it happened A LOT.
Live Action TV, Documentaries
- The Legend of Zelda
- ZOHMYFUCKINGGOD SKYWARD SWORD CAME OUT
- Twilight Princess, followed by Ocarina of Time and then Link to the Past.

- Medieval: Total War, and Rome: Total War.
- Civilization III
- Contra, and Contra III: The Alien Wars. Espicially the SPRAY GUN!
- ActRaiser. One of my new favorites, actually.
- Kid Icarus which is HARD AS FUCK and still addicting.
- Sonic the Hedgehog. Adventure and Adventure 2. Colors was great, and I'm playing the FUCK out of Generations.
- Call of Duty, sometimes. It'll only hold my attention for so long, and it's only fun when you're winning, and of course you have to play a ton to be good. I'm really sick of it, but I'm not going to spend my time bitching at Activision for making money.
- Super Mario Bros. series
- Portal and Portal 2.
- Street Fighter, II and III. Haven't played IV. Also enjoyed
- Marvel vs. Capcom
- Capcom Vs SNK
- Pokémon, Special Pikachu Edition, Silver, and Emerald.
- Sega Dreamcast. This is my favorite console. It was ahead of its time, it was the first 128-bit console, it was the first online console, and it's just... amazing. Plus, it's got one of the best libraries ever, and even better for only being in production for three years.
- Super Nintendo. Platformers and RPGs are my favorite, after all.
- Sega Saturn. Panzer Dragoon series, Nights, Dragon Force, Shining Force III, Guardian Heroes, and the huge library of fighting games and shoot-em-ups.
- Final Fantasy VII: The Sevening
- 8-Bit Theatre
- Cyanide and Happiness
- Death Note Abridged
- Perfect Kirby
- Ben Drowned
- Marble Hornets
- Final Fantasy VII Abridged
Tropes That Apply To Me
