Tropers / Sapphire Blue

Hi, I'm SapphireBlue. I'm a grad student in my mid-20s aiming for a degree in library and information science. I joined this site in high school because I saw some pages that were missing examples that I knew of, and wanted to add them. Been here ever since. Plus, this is just a really fun site to browse, and I wanted to be a part of it.

As far as the forums go, I'm most often hanging around the ones for video games, fanfiction, any of the writing sections, and a few of the "just for fun" sections. I don't usually go to the anime/manga section unless there's something specific I'm watching or reading, and I'd probably use the visual arts section if it wasn't so slow.

I can also be found on these sites: DeviantART Wysp Archive of Our Own Tumblr. Basically I go by Corovera everywhere except here, since I don't know if it's possible to change my name, and I'm not sure it'd be worth the effort.

In terms of books, I read mostly fantasy. However, I'm trying to expand my tastes, and I've been known to enjoy other things as well. I do some manga reading and anime watching as well.

In terms of games, I play a lot of JRPGs, though I also like action-adventure, platformer, strategy, and the occasional puzzle game. I also love Nintendo's stuff in general. Having a good story isn't a requirement, but chances are I'll like a game a lot more if it does.

The rest of this page basically consists of a bunch of lists.

Tropes that apply to me in some form:

  • Apologizes a Lot
  • Asperger's Syndrome: Was officially diagnosed in early high school - they thought it was ADHD before that. I've made a lot of progress over time, but I'm still somewhat socially awkward and have issues with stuff like anxiety and emotional regulation.
  • Attention Deficit Creator Disorder: Not as much nowadays, since I'm making an effort to focus on one or two projects at a time.
  • Bookworm: Less so than I was as a child, but I still love reading. I just don't do it as often as I used to.
  • Brainy Brunette
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: I probably would've had straight A's in school if it were all about doing good work and understanding the material. Unfortunately, my time management skills leave much to be desired, although they're a lot better than they used to be. "Lazy" isn't quite the right word, all things considered, but it's not far off.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Not always, but I have my moments.
  • Cool Big Sis: To two younger brothers, although the age difference matters a lot less now that we're all adults.
  • Diary: I've kept journals since middle school, and I have maybe eight of them filled. They usually last anywhere between one and two years.
  • The Idealist: Within reasonable limits, but I do tend to see things this way
  • Meganekko
  • One Of The Guys: Not so much nowadays, but I had a lot of male friends when I was a kid, and to some degree I still have this dynamic with the ones I stayed friends with.
  • Shrinking Violet: At times.
  • Tender Tears: I cry easily. Very easily.

Who is the person you're using as an avatar? He looks like a Digimon protagonist, specifically Tsurugi or Taiki. — Keyseeker

Nope, he's Cooro from +Anima. Look up. :D ~SapphireBlue
  • I ended up reading a few volumes of +Anima a few weeks after I asked the question. It's pretty good, but I'm not willing to buy it while there are better mangas that I want to own. (By the way, those volumes that I read are my older sister's.) — Keyseeker
    • Cool! If you're not willing to buy it, try reading it online. Assuming you're OK with doing that, of course. SapphireBlue
      • Actually, I bought all the volumes a few months ago and read them. They were good. — Keyseeker
      • Glad to hear it! SapphireBlue

Hey, how's it going? Haven't seen you around the KH thread in a while, so I thought I'd stop by and say hi. :) - X2X

Things are going fine. I've been lurking in the KH thread, but I haven't had anything to say. Thanks for stopping by! - SapphireBlue
