Tropers: Nano Moose
Nano Moose, a lady (rather than moose) who turned her usual handle into a Wiki Word 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:


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.
  • Expospeak Gag: For reference, see last paragraph of preamble.
  • Grammar Nazi: I read a lot. This is one side effect.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: As has undoubtedly been made apparent.
  • Your Mileage May Vary: I have my biases. I try to stay out of arguments, because it's the internet and Failure Is the Only Option. Still, some convictions I hold can make that button really tempting...
    • Spec Ops: The Line 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 Mass Effect 3 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 Serial Tweaking. Editing pages four separate times to fix four tiny spelling errors, that kind of thing. Um, sorry.
  • Filled out the Prototype Character Sheet 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 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 direction taken by Ubisoft in the 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.
