So I couldn't think of a better name when I made this handle. [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim Shoot me.]]

Video game and {{shonen}} junkie (and animation aficionado in general). I have way too many interests to list here, but the main ones are science/math, international relations, exploration, and languages (speaking German, Spanish and some Afrikaans in addition to my native English). Also really into flight and space and all that jazz. I also like baseball.

Formerly an exchange student to Germany; it was hands down the best experience of my young life.

Weird to me as it sounds, it increasingly seems as though I'm a veteran Troper here. Been troping since early 2009.

Works that I ''don't'' like that people thought I would:
* ''AVeryPotterMusical''. I don't know, I just didn't find any of the humor all that funny.
* TomLehrer. He's pretty funny, but after hearing a few of his songs, it's clear to me that he's a germanophobic douchebag.

Tropes that describe me:

* DeadpanSnarker: To the extent that I was known by one of my teachers as "that smart ass with the glasses" before she learned my name.
* TheStoic: Usually.
* TheBGrade: Subverted. I'm normally an A student but getting B's usually doesn't bother me that much. B-'s and C's....concern me [[{{Understatement}} a tad more]].
* ChivalrousPervert: Hehe
* ExtremityExtremist: As one of my friends put it, "I may punch like a baby, but I kick like a horse."
* HeCleansUpNicely: Apparently.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: I'm normally tolerable, but I have a penchant for playing villains in musicals.
* VoiceTypes: Bass-baritone, in my case. Which explains the above trope. I can go lyric baritone mode (which my voice teacher, unlike most people I've met, vastly prefers, much to my chagrin) if I want to, but I like my lower range better. He actually called me a "tenor with a low extension" at my last lesson, which...I don't quite get.
** As a side note, my current established range is D#2 to A4.
* {{Understatement}}: Almost an addiction.
* TheStraightWillAndGrace: Some of my best friends are girls, but I've only ever had an actual attraction to one, and it was pretty short lived.
* JerkassFacade: In the first months of my freshman year...to anyone who wasn't in the marching band, at least, the only people who readily accepted me. I moved before my freshman year to a small Appalachian town, with 99.9% of the attendees of the school being born and raised in the area. It wasn't the most welcoming environment for the FunnyForeigner.
* ThisIsASentenceBitch: One of my more popular techniques for [[CaptainObvious emphasis]].
* SarcasmMode: Like Understatement, almost an addiction.
* PrecisionFStrike: I'm no prude when it comes to swearing, but I usually try to punctuate it as much as possible.
* NonActionGuy: Typically, but...[[BewareTheNiceOnes just don't push me too far.]]
* TheNapoleon: Well, I'm not ''nasty'', and at 5'7"-5'8" I probably don't have much of a right to it, but I still feel self conscious about my height quite often.
* VocalDissonance: About average height, clean shaven face (though I do have to actively keep it that way), skinny...and my voice sounds like BarryWhite, particularly early in the morning or late in the evening. In the middle of the day, it's more normal but still definitely on the "low" end of the spectrum. I also happen to have the second lowest singing voice in my class; my best friend has the lowest.
* TheQuietOne: I'm good at cracking jokes, but not so much with small talk, so I don't usually speak unless I feel it's important, or unless something happens that I can make jokes about.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards my ''older'' sister. [[ItMakesSenseInContext It makes sense]] considering I'm substantially larger than her (5'8" and just under 170 lbs compared to her under 5' frame).
* RealLifeRelative: With @/RoseAndHeather, who may have [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming sniffled a little]] at BigBrotherInstinct...
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Apparently, when I speak German, ''no one'' can place my accent. People have guessed I'm from England, Sweden, Russia, South Africa, the Netherlands, and Ireland.
* SirSwearsALot: ...yeah. It's not a characteristic I'm proud of, but what can ya do.
