General Info
About Me

Hi. I'm Pig_catapult. I also go by Pig, Piggy, Piffy, Peeg, Peej, Piffles, Ham Cannon, and pretty much any other permutation on my name you can think of. I'm 21, agender (I prefer feminine pronouns), and live in California with my husband and our chinchilla.

I'm a writer, a poet, an avid roleplayer and world builder, a mod at the SCP Foundation wiki, and a compulsive proofreader. I am not, however, a Grammar Nazi. Nazis suck. I prefer the term "Knight of the Red Pen" or, in the context of actually fixing things instead of pointing out what's wrong with them, "SPaG Faerie".

Tropes!
Applicable to me
  • Actual Pacifist: If it's good enough for Ghandi, it's good enough for me. I don't like hurting people or seeing people get hurt.
  • Angst Aversion: Sufficiently-angsty shit can ruin the rest of my day, so I try to avoid sufficiently-angsty shit.
  • The Anti-Nihilist: We live in a shitty world with nothing but Cessation of Existence after death. Why waste what little time we have making others miserable?
  • Blessed with Suck: There's this condition called hyperacusis. Part of my inner ear is hypersensitive and I can hear high-pitched noises better/louder than 99.9% of the population. Yay, Super Hearing! Sounds great, except for the part where anything above a certain pitch threshold literally feels like someone is stabbing something sharp into my eardrums. The soft tinny noise that comes with poor-quality sound recording is painful, I can't listen to some kinds of music even with high-quality recordings, and watching videos of cute kittens is an auditory minefield.
  • Catapult Nightmare: No pun intended, but I've woken up from nightmares while in motion multiple times
  • Catchphrase: Prefixing new paragraphs with "Also", and, subsequently, "Also also".
  • Companion Cube: Asking inanimate objects rhetorical questions is like a pastime for me.
  • The Confidant: I am a really good listener.
  • Creature of Habit: I generally do more-or-less the same stuff every day, and I'm cool with that.
  • For Happiness: I'm a secular humanist, and this is my morality. See also "Actual Pacifist" and "The Anti-Nihilist", above.
  • Genre Savvy: Perhaps dangerously so; this and Fridge Logic have destroyed many of my big brother's more classic story arc ideas.
  • Godiva Hair: I have All-Encompassing Mantle levels of hair volume, which often makes it impossible to actually read my nerdy T-shirts.
  • Good Feels Good: See "For Happiness".
  • Hell Seeker/Hell of a Heaven: Zigzagged. I'm actually an atheist, but if it turns out I've failed Pascal's Wager and there is a Christian-style heaven of eternal paradise and and hell of eternal suffering, then even if I don't get sent to hell for refusing to worship whatever entity is responsible for deciding who goes where, I would demand to go to hell anyway, because I don't believe that anything justifies torturing someone eternally, and consensually participating in paradise with the knowledge that such a hell exists would be the same as condoning the actions of whatever entity set this up, and I would rather be tortured for eternity than surrender the moral high ground.
  • Hollywood Atheist: Of the Rage Against the Heavens variety. I was brought up Mormon, and much of my teenage angst came from a "Omniscient Morality License is invalid, therefore God Is Evil"-flavoured Crisis of Faith. Interestingly, this started happening after I got a firsthand experience of how Isaac must have felt: When I was 12, my parents' other child threatened me with a knife, and I was convinced I was going to die. No-one deserves to go through that, and God had Abhraham do it to Isaac just to confirm something that, God being omniscient, he already knew.
  • Ill Catapult: My immune system sucks.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: My father practically raised me on these and computer science.
  • Insistent Terminology: See above, re: Knight of the Red Pen.
  • Ironic Nickname: Although many people call me some variation of "Pig", I have a tendency to under-eat.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Blood doesn't really mean much to me. I choose who my family are.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: I tend to gravitate toward playing Token Evil Teammate characters.
  • Nice to the Waiter: I try my damnedest to be nice to pretty much everyone I come across, or at the very least not make their lives harder. The "pretty much" is because even I have a hard time being nice to bigots and people who ping my creep-o-meter.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Would someone who wasn't spend so much time on the SCP Foundation wiki?
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: I use "Piffy" more often in my day-to-day life than my real given name.
  • Pinch Me: I have, at least once, decided "This dream has entirely too many spiders. Fuck this. I'm waking up." and then promptly woke up.
  • The Roleplayer
  • Single-Issue Wonk: People using words incorrectly.
  • Team Mom: Always the first to say that this might not be a good idea, but I know you're going to do it anyways, so at least be careful, dammit!
  • This Is My Name on Foreign: In Real Life, I'm named after my father's mother and stepmother, except in French.
  • TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Vocabulary: It happened.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Repeatedly on This Very Wiki, even. Most people on the internet seem to assume I'm a guy until corrected.
  • Watsonian Versus Doylist: I'm always a Doylist first and a Watsonian second when it comes to analysis of a work.
  • You Make Me Sic: I've long since come to terms with the fact that my life's calling is to be an editor. Proofreading is a compulsion for me.

Tropes I like

Tropes I don't like

Series I like:
OTPs
One-canon ships

Crossover ships (Why do I have so many/such weird Crossover Ships, you ask? My big brother and I have only been working on a gigantic Mega Crossover setting and storylines for the past several years.)

Tropes to send to workshop
  • Blithe Spirit: Has to do with a character that shakes things up in ways the rest of the world thinks they shouldn't, but that's not the definition of "blithe".
