Tropers: Septimus Heap

Me, from a time 500 years ago
"Viewers Are Morons doesn't any subjectivity make"

About me

To head off, while I am a currently 21-year old male from Switzerland, I distinctly prefer to be referred to by the attributes of my avatar on the forums (that is, usally as "boy").

In the case you didn't notice, I am an avid reader of Septimus Heap. Media references wise, I tend to cycle between various works slowly (not slowly enough for me to keep this page up-to-date regarding that), including House, Hawaii Five-0, Castle, NCIS, Air Crash Investigation and more.

I have become a troper mainly for Septimus Heap and also to see if I can become a productive member of a Wiki. You see, I have been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome when I was a little boy and have sometimes problems with society due to this.

Nowadays, I mostly spend my time with World Building projects and seeing a bit forward with life.

Herald of the Frequently Asked Questions subforum since 4th August 2012, and of Trope Talk since 18th December 2013. Promoted to moderator since 17th October 2014.

At the moment busy on-wiki with reading discussion pages, monitoring new pages and new accounts for bad pages here and vandals/problem editors respectively, and commenting and occasionally working in the workshops. Sometimes I am in Yack Fest, Old Folk's Home, On-Topic Conversations, Literature, Writer's Block and World Building.

A cool discovery during lurking.

Congratulations on becoming a full mod, Septimus Heap. What was that task you performed that got you up there, again?

Fighteer

He's been on the "mod radar" for quite some time due to his dedicated work on the wiki and in TRS/IP. He had already been granted limited use of wiki tools like the reverter, and this was a natural progression. He graciously accepted our offer.

ryanasaurus0077

I guess that explains it.

But if anyone wants to offer a version for The Ancient Circle of Mods, I just happen to be in the mood to hear a tall tale take on it.

Fighteer

I suppose we could make up a story about how he conducted ritual sacrifices of banned tropers in a secret ceremony.

Congrats to Septimus for reaching the 33rd degree. Best of luck in this new journey. =)

DracMonster
01:39:08 PM 17th Oct 2014

Congrats, long overdue!

But he's always so even tempered. I'm having trouble imagining what he's going to be like in "You have just pissed off the management" mode. :)

It was obvious this day would come; the only question was when. Congrats Septimus, and thank you for all your hard work on the wiki.

Oh hey good on him.

02:37:19 PM 17th Oct 2014

Oh look, the sun's risen in the east!

All joking aside, we all knew this day was coming, and with good reason. Well done, Septimus!

I thought I heard cheers coming from the Death Course's exit.

Congrats, Septimus.

Ramidel
02:52:03 PM 17th Oct 2014

And here I thought that Septimus had only stayed away from full mod duties because he was too busy with the engineering stuff.

Congrats, long overdue.

Irene

Congrats, Septimus! I wonder who else is about to be added.

Congratulations Septimus!

I know the blasphemous eldritch rites of moderatorhoodship! Tremble and heed these words!

  1. Humbling, humiliating nudity.
  2. Knowest thou which is a Heel-Face Turn and which is a Face-Heel Turn. Turneth thou as thy alignment requires.
  3. Be torn asunder in the Crucible of Darth Wiki. Become Wall Banged. Suffer a Dethroning Moment of Suck. Briefly become So Bad You're Horrible.
  4. Die. Everyone dies but moderators are reborn! If you are Killed Off for Real then Bad End.
  5. Go on the tedious quest for the McGuffin. Pick a Five-Man Band of veteran moderators. Beware for one is a Leeroy Jenkins and another a Token Evil Teammate. Try to guess which one, I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised.
  6. Learn the horrible secret of the McGuffin: it was friendship all along. Note: if the secret turns out to be "world peace" then you lose through no fault of your own. End.
  7. The dread Archive Binge. Decades of Doctor Who. A decade of Penny Arcade. Twenty James Bond films. There are many Long Runners, dive in. Become one with them. Argue on forums about them.
  8. Shocking Swerve! Heel-Face-Face-Heel back to thy original alignment!
  9. Read 1,000 random pages. Chop chop.
  10. Smite 1,000 sockpuppets. Collect 4,250 sockpuppet socks.
  11. Ascend to moderatorhood! Become be-crowned and claim thy throne. Good End!

The only surprise is that it took this long. Good on yer, Septimus!

Somehow I knew he was destined for this. Congraduations

Congratulations, Septimus!

And now, your real battle has just be begun...I'm pretty sure you're fully aware that with great power comes great responsibility. ;)

Congrats, now you just have to pick out a mod hat and find the right time to show it to the world.

Looking at the whole slew of replies above, there is only one way to go: congratulations!

Komodin

Is it strange that I see it and thought, "Hey, this will help make the P5 work run even more efficiently"?

In all seriousness, though, congratulations on the promotion, Septimus. After all the work you've done here, you very much deserve it!

The One Who Tropes
12:40:05 AM 18th Oct 2014

Congratulations!

Thanks, all! I'll probably archive this discussion line somewhere ... ideas where?

Pistols At Dawn
02:29:53 AM 18th Oct 2014

hm did you know that if you google "Septimus Heap Tvtropes" (i was looking for your troper page) the result you get is for Septimush Eap?

congratulations on the promotion Septimush!

Congratulations! Now that you are a mod, you can ban people who screw with the site too much.

I for one welcome our new extraordinary overlord.

07:06:40 AM 18th Oct 2014

Suprised it took this long to make him a mod, considering how active he is! Anyway, congrats on becoming a mod Septimus Heap!

I'm a bit late to the party, but congratulations, you've earned it!

Clockwork Universes
09:23:59 AM 20th Oct 2014

Congrats! I've been meaning to ask: how do you find time to commit to the wiki? What's your occupation?

Irene
03:32:40 PM 20th Oct 2014

Now for the kicker, what will your Mod Hat Avatar be? :P

Candi
05:36:49 PM 20th Oct 2014

Maybe something along the lines of Telcontar's (which I find hilarious compared to his 'troper' avatar). :P

Kuruni
08:43:26 PM 20th Oct 2014

Just check Edit Banned thread, I have no idea what he is though.

ryanasaurus0077
08:49:28 PM 20th Oct 2014

I did, and his looks kind of like a Roman senator to me (but you don't have to take my word for it!).

Mr L 1193
09:10:46 PM 20th Oct 2014

I would assume it's the character Septimus Heap. The avatar is the same as his regular one, so if he's planning to choose a different one for mod posts, he hasn't yet.

Septimus Heap
02:04:44 AM 21st Oct 2014

Alright, people, this discussion is nice and all but crowding out ATT a bit. I recommend to continue it in the forums somewhere.

To answer a few quick questions; I am currently in uni (I guess that's called college in the US) and will have a lot less time available next week. I haven't picked a Mod Hat avatar and I don't think I will (when I haven't picked one, both my normal posts and pink posts display the same avatar). Incidenally, my current avatar (the boy in a blue shirt) is Nicko Heap, another character from Septimus Heap.

Deadbeatloser22
02:05:39 AM 21st Oct 2014

Yeah, that's how it works; your normal one gets used until you set one.

ryanasaurus0077
02:42:35 AM 21st Oct 2014

OK, but shall we archive the ATT part of it somewhere?

Septimus Heap
12:52:57 AM 22nd Oct 2014

I guess I'll copy this discussion into my troper page later this day.

Page bottom, entries requested by PM (publishing permission needs to be submitted, too) will be moved here


Well, this is surprising. A person that is one of the Wiki's most productive members with no vandalism in his page? I call first. -desdendelle

Wohoo! I'm glad I'm not the only Aspie around here. I don't feel so alone in this world anymore. -Indigo12ash

Apparently, now there are at least three Aspies on this wiki. -IlVit

The Original Barnstar

For all the hard work you do adding to and cleaning up the wiki, I award you Wikipedia's barnstar, since I have an inkling you may edit there as well. Telcontar (talk contribs) 08:04 7 September 2012

I personally think you should be a moderator, Septimus. -Waxing Name
