Hello there, Clockwork_Heart here. Please, make no jokes about me being 'Easy to wind up' due to the name.

I am currently a student in Sixth form, studying for three A-Levels and learning to drive. If I drop off in activity, they're likely the reason.

I have dabbled in writing fanfiction, though I haven't been able to fully finish one so far. Currently working on a number of different fic ideas, trying to find which one to concentrate on. I'm also a pretty avid 40k tabletop gamer, with a focus on the Adeptus Mechanicus.


     Favoured Works 
Video Games:
  • Franchise.Pokemon - Brought Diamond and Pearl, found one had been hacked (At least one of every Pokemon in the 'dex, all of 'em shiny.), and started playing from there. I've gone from Diamond to Soul Silver to ORAS, and still I carry on playing.
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War
  • Minecraft: Grew up playing this. Still remember how I accidentally lost my first and greatest Creative Mode world.
  • Viscera Cleanup Detail: Black comedy abounds, especially with friends.
  • SlimeRancher:


  • Alestorm: Pirates + Metal + Copious Amounts of Swearing = AWESOME!
  • Waterflame: 'Field of Memories' in particular.
  • Pretty much any Nightcore music, though it depends on the original song.
  • Most of Star Wars: The Clone Wars' OST, but particularly Ion Cannon, Through the Asteriods, and a few other tracks.

     Tropes I Think Describe Me 

  • Actual Pacifist: Downplayed. I prefer to keep out of conflict with others, but I'm willing to fight if there is absolutely no other option.
  • Attention Whore: Defied. I prefer not to draw attention to myself.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Hypocrisy.
    • Bullying or mocking a person because they have a mental/developmental disorder.
  • Big Eater: Though I maintain an average build.
  • Blue Oni: Some call me this.
  • Character Tic: I tend to pick my nails when nervous, or emotional.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Occasionally. Happens more frequently when I'm tired, irritable or speaking to someone I particularly dislike.
  • No Social Skills: I don't get on very well in social situations.
  • I Hate Past Me: I tend to get embarrassed and defensive when I am reminded of (or independently remember) something silly, embarrassing or otherwise unpleasant that I said or did in the past.
  • The Quiet One: Most of the time.
  • The Stoic: I prefer not to show much emotion.

Roleplay Character Tropes

     The Four Behemoths
The Bosses of the iOS game 'Death Dome'. They're basically bio-mechanical creatures dozens of meters tall, but little else is known of them due to the game's plot.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: All four are big. At minimum, they're the size of high rise buildings, as the game makes it difficult to get an exact size.
  • Anti-Climax Boss: Ahuizotl is actually weaker than Nidhogg, despite being the Bonus Boss of the Dark Carnival. This may be due to the difficulty of Nidhogg, and due to the player having end-game gear.
  • Ax-Crazy: Akhetaten is implied to be this: his attacks are erratic, he constantly twitches through the battle, and he generally acts the most unhinged out of the Behemoths. In RP, translates mostly to unpredictability and a tendency to swing rapidly in moods.
  • BFS/BFG: Akhetaten and Niddhog both sport large arm-blades; all four can fire missiles or other projectiles from in-built weapons.
  • Big Eater: Chernabog makes his entrance by eating some poor Mook. Hell, he even eats Phoenix as part of his fight's Brutal Finish! Phoenix answers by pulling a Chest Burster on him, tearing her way out through his chest and putting him down for good. RP-wise, he's still sore over that - likes to claim she gave him indigestion, rather than her winning.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard/Death by Irony:
    • Chernabog eats the player at the end of his battle. Phoenix kills him by tearing out through his chest.
    • Nidhogg tries to finish Phoenix off with one of its blades. It gets parried into its face, killing him.
  • Large Runt: Grendel is the weakest of the Behemoths, to the point where you're almost guaranteed to beat him. He's still massively powerful by human standards, to the point where Phoenix needs to be powered up temporarily by the M-Virus to fight him on even terms.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • Grendel is easily defeated by the hero, and acts as a stgepping stone for more powerful challenges and greater in-game fame.
    • Akhetaten is utterly bloody nuts, and is considered as much by his brothers, but utilises a radically different fighting style to what the player expects so far - appropriate, considering he is named after an unconventional ruler.
    • Chernabog seems the most pointlessly malevolent of the Behemoths, and is named for a god often interpreted as evil or demonic.
    • Nidhogg is named for the Norse dragon seen as Ragnarok arrives/ends; fittingly, it is encountered as the final boss.
    • Ahuizotl has a group of spiky tentacles on her back, much like the spikes of her namesake creature.
  • Noodle Incident: Exactly why the main four won't go into the Dark Carnival is something they don't discuss.
  • Theme Naming: Grendel, Chernabog, Nidhogg and... Akhetaten.
  • That One Boss: Nidhogg. It frequently feints and misleads when attacking (crucial, in a game based around recognising patterns of attack), your attacks do Scratch Damage, and even with the highest non-premium gear his attacks are either One Hit Kills or near enough to be so. Needless to say, you're going to die a lot against it. Unless you spam revives, which exponentially increases your power at the cost of premium currency.
  • The Quiet One: Nidhogg is explicitly called 'Reclusive', so don't expect it to say much.

A boss from the now-defunct Facebook game The Last One. Looks bloody horrifying.
  • The Assimilator: Grows by assimilating other zombies and humans. Does so to find company, as it still remembers human life and desires to relive it.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: He's around the size of a subway car.
  • Body Horror:
    • Its spine and ribs jut from its back, while its hands are comprised of two half-consumed upper bodies. Multiple eyes, multiple heads, what looks like multiple limbs jut from the body at all angles, accompanied by a load of tentacles with bony spikes on them, and it looks to have a tongue growing out of a second mouth on its cheek. What look like numerous holes in its body are present, and it looks like its nothing but muscle - no skin, just a flayed mass of fused bodies charging towards you. This used to be human, mind you.
  • Combat Tentacles: Fights partly via the use of its tentacles and barbed tongue.
  • The Dead Have Eyes: And far too many of them, I'd say.
  • Night of the Living Mooks: Can control the zombies inside his subway territories. Uses them for company, despite them being brain-dead, due to feeling rather lonely.
  • Plague Zombie: Created by a zombie virus, implied to be able to transmit it.
  • The Unintelligible: Can't really speak clearly.
