Hi everyone, welcome to my page. Feel free to update/fix/add stuff here as long as you don't vandalize.

I spend most of my time at uni or work, reading manga, watching anime, playing video games and/or trying to make games.

Runs a blog named "[[http://burnpsy.wordpress.com/ I Am Only Myself]]"

----
!!Burnpsy And His Life Provide Examples Of The Following Tropes:
* AfraidOfNeedles
* AlwaysInClassOne: Both [[InvertedTrope inverted]] and played straight. Typically depends on whether the school uses a separate numbering system for the [[ChildProdigy enhanced]] classes or not. If they even separate them.
* {{Asexuality}}: Post-disillusionment.
* AsleepInClass: Happened a few times. Especially if he hasn't had his hot chocolate.
* BewareTheSillyOnes
* BilingualBonus: See the "MeaningfulName" entry below.
* BlackAndNerdy
* BrokenBase: Everything about him gets reactions all across the spectrum.
* {{But Not Too Foreign}}/{{Token Minority}}: [[UpToEleven He holds at least 5 different ethnicities]], most of which are minorities.
* CanNotSpitItOut: The ''one'' time a girl he liked liked him back, neither one would admit it. It was obvious to ''everyone'', though.
* ChildProdigy → {{Brilliant But Lazy}}/{{Class Clown}} → BrilliantButLazy: Having to repeat years of school because of your ''age'' does that to you. Note that he was once identified as being in the top 1% of his grade in the nation.
* '''CriticalBacklash'''
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: He's gotten teachers in the middle of their lectures to say stuff like "What do you mean 9000?" and "No, not because they are 'n00bs' and they're easy to 'pwn'."
** In addition, in high school, he and his friends got the youngest person in their group to continuously ask what porn is, asking more than once because he doesn't understand why it exists.
** His presentations in high school were all this.
* '''{{Dandere}}''': But only in real life. Obviously, that wouldn't work too well online.
* DeceptivelySillyTitle[=/=]DoubleMeaningTitle: ''Turtles all the Way: A Shell Game'' was written specifically to be [[MeaningfulName meaningful]] while sounding like something completely different. That tile is actually meant to talk about infinite regress and scamming, but as it is, it simply sounds like it's a game about an awesome turtle. That said, it ''is'' about an awesome turtle, so... yeah.
** The title was later replaced with ''The Turtle Who Had Wings'' due to constant confusion with ''TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles''.
* [[DontExplainTheJoke Don't ]]'''[[UpToEleven Make Jokes About ]]'''[[DontExplainTheJoke Explaining the Joke]]: Tropers/NoLimit's main problem with the jokes in the original ''The Turtle Who Had Wings'' script. Though overruled by the majority, most of the offending content would not fit within the new script anyway.
* FiveManBand: In high school.
** TheHero: This was his indisputable position.
* FragileFlower: GenderInverted
* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger
* GraduateFromTheStory
* HandshakeSubstitute: The final time he sees Hashim, they greet each other by doing a spontaneous BroFist-handshake combo on the spot.
** Sadly, he sucks at figuring out when someone is offering him a BroFist. This tends to get awkward.
* '''HanlonsRazor'''
* {{Heroic Self Deprecation}}/{{Take That Me}}: Perpetually, though kept in his head.
* {{Its Pronounced Tro PAY}}/[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Spell My Name with a Y]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: His theme song.
* LimitedWardrobe: One notable high school classmate had 5 of the same shirt and therefore always wore one to school.
* MeaningfulName: Every single one of his RealLife names has a meaning or good reason to be there. Most notably, his surname is in two different languages, yet translates together into "Kings take the best care of me."
* MostAnnoyingSound: One girl spammed the phrase [[LoveConfession "I love you."]] every time she saw him until the end of high school.
** During first year in university, this was replaced with a different girl spamming "You go to my church!" in much the same fashion. After being confronted about it, she stopped several months later.
** And then someone started doing this on MSN, [[spoiler:[[{{Squick}} but it was a dude this time]]]]. It stopped after a while, though.
* NeverGotToSayGoodbye: High school ended with a non-death version. {{Subverted}} by the graduation ceremony a few months later.
* NoIndoorVoice: Happens a lot.
* {{Obstructive Bureaucrat}}/{{Bitch In Sheeps Clothing}}: Apparently, being about 4-5 years younger than your classmates is valid reason to he held back a year, without even telling the student or the parents. This happened multiple times.
** His grade 10 English teacher. Let's just say using racism on him gets you reported to the authorities and overruled.
* NonUniformUniform: Not a uniform per-se, but in law school, when all of the other men use a suit and tie, he's the only one who uses a bowtie, and this is commented on frequently.
* OralFixationFixation
* {{Otaku}}: Anime/Manga/Gaming variant.
* OverlyLongName: His name in RealLife is 6 names, 2 of which are hyphenated into one, in [[BilingualBonus three languages]], and is 43 characters long without counting the spaces.
* PetPeeveTrope: anything regarding {{Discontinuity}} or {{Shipping}}.
** It should be noted, however, that the problem he has with shipping is with the attitudes shippers take and not the act itself.
* PoliceAreUseless: [[AvertedTrope Averted]], [[InvertedTrope inverted]] and played straight.
* PopCultureIsolation: By choice.
* RattlingOffLegal: Done in a hilariously joking fashion for a high school assignment. The teacher then said [[RealityIsUnrealistic that it wasn't realistic]].
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud
* [[SecondPlaceIsForWinners Seventieth Place Is For Winners]]: It was a large YuGiOh tournament and he was using [[LethalJokeCharacter Morphtronics]].
* ScaryBlackMan: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. He merely gives off that impression before you talk to him, apparently.
* '''SophisticatedAsHell'''
* SkewedPriorities
* SpoilerHound
* ToughRoom
