[[folder:About me]]
A bit on who I am then: I came here a while ago (I have no idea when exactly, it's been quite some time), though I am pretty sure it was via a link from IrregularWebcomic. I started reading, [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife got hooked]] and for a long time, I just lurked. Then at some point, I got myself a username [[OldShame to contribute to Troper Tales]]. At some point I discovered the forums and now I am properly addicted.

...You didn't expect me to tell who I ''really'' am did you?
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Name]]
The "Catfish" part is from a movie quote, and I've been using it as an online username for a while.
The 42 is simply the ArcNumber of the {{Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy}} series (of which I`m a bit of a fan).
[[/folder]]


[[folder:Writing/Drawing/Stuff]]
I have just about no talent for story writing and my drawing skills are mediocre on anything but cars, boats or aeroplanes.

So nothing here.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Trope list]]

A little list of tropes that [[strike: apply to me]] somehow have come in contact with me:

* BerserkButton: Here and there, this and that.
* BlackComedy: I like it.
* BlatantLies: Frequently.
* CannotStandThemCannotLiveWithoutThem: Many people.
* CharacterTics: Rolling my eyes, mainly.
* DeadpanSnarker: Not as good as some other people but I do have my moments.
* DidNotDoTheResearch: Rather irritating if I know better.
* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: Useful.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Sometimes I am ''nice'' and ''helpful''. *shudder*
* RidiculousProcrastinator: I read the "leave a 10000 word paper until the night before it's due" and thought "that's me!".
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Caramel-filled chocolate. And Lasagna (yes, capital letter).
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Spiders?]]


Additionally, there's [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=6pswc5oj3xfv5jryme3ygx0h&page=1 that game]] where I've been accused of the following:
!!From "Tropefy":
* TheAce - Oh, I'd love that...
* AcePilot - About time I got that one! ...erham, yeah. Thanks.
* ANicePerson - That'd be, er... [[IncrediblyLamePun cool...]]
* {{Adorkable}} - ...well, thanks.
* AntiHero - Probably right...
* AwesomenessByAnalysis - Every now and then.
* {{Badass}} - Er...thanks I guess.
* BadassNormal - Oh yeah, I like that. Much better than superpowers.
* BloodKnight - ...[[FlatWhat what.]]
* CargoShip - Potholed from "Ship Lover". Er...''yeah''....
* CarryABigStick - As it was potholed from my title, ''Carrier Diplomacy'', I'd guess it refers to the quote by [[TheodoreRoosevelt good ol' Teddy]].
* ChaoticGood - When I'm in a good mood.
* ChuckYeager - I can only wish so...
* ColdSniper - My preferred video game tactic in fact.
* CoolPlane - My avatars, yes. And it ''does'' get a little old...
* CoolShip - I guess my hand-drawn aircraft design ''does'' look a bit spacey... or is it because of the carrier I had?
* DeadpanSnarker - Oh, I do hope so.
* [[DistractedByTheSexy Distracted By The Boat]]- Well, tha- '''BOAT!!''' Aww, ''niiice!''
* FISHOutOfWater - The name...?
* GeniusBruiser - Maybe not "genius", but...
* GenreSavvy - Yep. Or at least I hope so.
* [[NostalgiaFilter The Good Old Days]] - I like old cars and planes, so... yeah.
* TheHeart - Possibly.
* JerkassFacade - If that's what you think, I don't want to shatter your beliefs...
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee - I'd bet.
* TheLancer - Said [[{{@/Flanker66}} Flanky]], calling himself TheHero in the process. Fine with me.
* LawfulGood - You wish.
* TheMario - Yep. Also my preferred character/unit type in video games.
* MinoredInAsskicking - Yeeeah.
* MixAndMatchCritters - The name? Actually I just heard the word and thought it sounded cool...
* MoreDakka - Yeah. Short, controlled bursts is nice and good, but sometimes, that just doesn't cut it.
* NobleDemon - Ah, you got me there...
* PungeonMaster - ...when I feel like it. And when the puns aren't ''too'' horrible.
* ShownTheirWork - I'm doing my best to keep it up.
* TheSmartGuy - Reasonably smart, yes.
* StylisticSuck - On the self-drawn avatars. I'll take it as a compliment.
* SquishyWizard - Maybe..?
* TheStraightMan - Usually.
* SweetTooth - Mhmhmh...chocolate...caramel filling...
* {{Troperiffic}} - Yep, quite the list here...
* WideEyedIdealist - Er...not so much.
* White Knight (KnightInShiningArmor) - Ahhh,.... rather not.
* TheWoobie - Sometimes, I guess. Somehow, I try to hide it though...

* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: When I put my headphones on to listen to music, that is my way of saying "I don't want to talk to you now, so just shut up". The good thing is that when you have heaphones on is that people automatically assume you can't hear. But maybe your music is not that loud. And then it's a great way to listen in on any conversation.

Quick note on ellipses... : ...I love 'em...



Name inspired by {{Pirates Of The Caribbean}} 2 and {{Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy}}:

Really.

God what have I done? I have just told you the secret of where my username comes from. Now ''everyone'' can figure it out. So I might as well explain it: The "Catfish" part comes from the second {{Pirates Of The Caribbean}} film where [[ThoseTwoGuys those two pirates]] and the dog are in a boat, the dog jumps into the water, one pirate asks why and the other awnsers with "Maybe he`s seen a catfish?" I found that bit so funny I started using the word as a username online.

I must say that I have no talent for story writing and my drawing skills are mediocre on anything but cars, boats or aeroplanes. But as I have a decent imagination, I have come up with some possible ideas for story which I haven't developed much for lack of a medium to convey them with.

For example:
* ''The Seamless Agenda'' (working title), a story about a man and a women who find themselves working together at some form of secret organization. They were in school together but haven't seen each other for ten years, which leads to some awkward situations. Set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, with the characters mostly based on people I know. Some plots and events outlined.
* ''Man In The City'', about a guy living in a (seemingly) [[{{Utopia}} utopic]] city (known merely as The City, 'cause it's the biggest one around). He is the only one who doesn't agree with the super green-"we are so liberal and cool"-mentality that governs the place and [[StepfordSmiler glosses over any existing problems]]. Two short proof-of-concept texts.

* BeingGoodSucks: My opinion. Mostly. Borders on GoodIsNotNice.

* BlackComedy: A ''British'' sense of humour, my mum says. Well, I do have some Brits in the family.
* BlatantLies: I haven't seen your ''X'' either, no sorry. I have no idea where you put it, maybe in the.. Alright, alright here you go.
* BrilliantButLazy: Well, not exactly ''brilliant'', maybe just clever, but lazy for sure. I could be so much better in school if I had put some more effort into it. Good in testpapers but never saying anything during lessons. Unless it was something really clever.
* CatchPhrase: I have a few: "Indeed, good sir!", [[SarcasmMode "Now]] [[SarcasmMode ''that`s'' [[SarcasmMode gonna be fun."]], "Clever. Very clever. Almost ''too'' clever [for someone like you]." Out of politeness, I omit that last part in conversation.
* CannotStandThemCannotLiveWithoutThem: My "friends" to me. After a long day with them, I can be annoyed as hell, but after six weeks of holidays without them, I can be ''utterly'' bored.
* CharacterTics: Compulsive eyerolling, FacePalm, finger snipping ([[EarWorm to the music in my head]]), constantly quoting stuff or imitating a charater's speech pattern, etc., etc. ...

* FamousAncestor: Not actually famous, but I can safely assume that some of my ancestors were smugglers on the coast of South East Britain during the 1800s.



* GenreSavvy: If someone comes up with a plan, I often see where its faults are, what is likely to go wrong and where people will ask stupid questions.
* GratuitousEnglish: Averted. While many people here in Germany speak at least small bits of English, they mostly aren`t very good at it. I would say however that mine is [[strike:a bit]] a lot (not the guy for understatement) better due to relatives and holidays in England.
* HaHaHaNo: I regularly do this, for example when asked for help I am not going to give.
--->'''Someone''': Could you help me with the maths homework?
--->'''Me''': Help you with the...HAHAHA oh, you're funny, help you with the HAHAHA... '''NO.'''
* HatesEveryoneEqually: I start out hating everybody. From there, I make exceptions.



* HyperAwareness: Not as extreme as some fictional examples but sometimes there are the little things that catch my eye. And I have quite a good memory for those too. Some things however also go past me completely.
* IslandHelpMessage: I sometimes put these on beaches for fun when I'm on holiday.
* IThoughtEveryoneCouldDoThat: I thought everyone could learn English at school. I was horribly wrong. The people around are just so... ''bad'' at it.



* LeaningOnTheFurniture: And on other people...
* MathematiciansAnswer: Given for example to the question of what time it is (it seems I am one of the few people who still wear watches).
* OnlySaneMan: I often feel like it.
* OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions: How I view religion. Please, I don't intend to offend anyone and I don`t want to argue about the topic.



* RuleOfCool / RuleOfFun: The reason for quite a few things I do.
* ShameIfSomethingHappened: Every now and then, I do this when people start to annoy me. A variation is this:
--->Is that your chocolate bar there? Yes? Looks tasty. * snatch* Now it's mine.



* WithFriendsLikeThese: See: CannotStandThemCannotLiveWithoutThem

Well, seems I strayed a bit off course there, that`s not only stuff directly about myself...[[RuleOfFun but who cares?]]

* BrilliantButLazy: Well, not exactly ''brilliant'', maybe just clever, but lazy for sure. I could have been so much better in school if I had put some more effort into it. Good in testpapers but never said anything during lessons. Unless it was something really clever.

* CannotStandThemCannotLiveWithoutThem: My "friends" to me. After a long day with them, I can be annoyed to hell, but after six weeks of holidays without them, I can be ''utterly'' bored.
