- I got my handle from the rather insignificant Yu-Gi-Oh! card Des Dendle.
- I am:
- A drinker of good tea. Especially Earl Grey.
This Troper dislikes the following things
- Wanton Cruelty to the Common Comma and its Subtropes: Rouge Angles of Satin, No Punctuation Period and How Do I Used Tense.
- Obstructive Bureaucrats.
- Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory (excessive symbolism counts, too).
Tropes that that guy, desdendelle, thinks he's an example of
- Agnostic: of the 'weak agnostic atheist' variation. It basically means the following:
- I don't know whether God(s) exist, or not.
- I tend to thinknote that no such being exists.
- I think that it is possible to know whether God(s) exist, unless it's proven otherwise.
- Alignment Tropes: True Neutral with heavy shades of Lawful Good.
- Altum Videtur: Oh so very much. Also with English, since it isn't my mother tongue.
- Bile Fascination: That's why I became PPCer and continue to read badfic.
- Blue-and-Orange Morality: Kind of given, since my moral code is an odd mix of Stoicism, Kantian imperatives, and Cartesian epistemology. Despite my Lawful Good tendencies.
- Bookworm: Yep! Gimme those books, gimme!
- Brilliant, but Lazy: I am gifted (135+ IQ), but incredibly lazy.
- Can't Hold His Liquor: I can't drink more than half a pint of Guinness, and Saké makes me tipsy.
- Captain Obvious: Obviously (and annoyingly, to my RL friends) enough.
- Cloudcuckoolander: I kinda tend to miss the obvious sometimes.
- Crossplayer: I have more female avatars than male ones. My favourite Warframe is Banshee.
- Deadpan Snarker: Who isn't?
- Encyclopaedic Knowledge: Due to Bookwormness.
- Food Tropes:
- Comfort Drink: Good Earl Grey tea.
- Does Not Like Coriander: Or parsley.
- Drink Order: Tea. To the point where it became a running gag among my friends.
- Glasses Pull: Subverted. I sometimes take my glasses off before (or after) I speak, but it has no meaning whatsoever.
- Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: Sort of; I really can't understand what motivates people to be malicious (insert standard "too many premises" disclaimer here).
- Grammar Police: I'm a stickler for correct SPaG.
- Hates Every Organised Religion Equally: More or less.
- Honesty Is the Best Policy: I fully believe in this.
- Hype Aversion: Ponies.
- Iconic Item: A longcoat that, unfortunately, makes me look like a Haredi.
- Geek Physiques: Of the thin, muscle-less variety.
- Proud To Be A Nerd: Because I am what am and I don't plan on changing because others don't understand that.
- Ninja Editor: If I spot a typo in my posts, I usually go back and fix it as soon as I see it.
- Non-Action Guy: Was a jobnik in the army, am a bureaucrat on the side while in uni...
- Not a Morning Person: Perpetually grumpy in mornings. Not properly awake till around 0900 and a cup (preferably more) of tea.
- Saw "Star Wars" Twenty-Seven Times: I have a tendency to recycle books, movies and the like.
- Sophisticated as Hell: Even more evident when I speak Hebrew.
- The Enneagram A Four. Apparently.
- The Philosopher: FWIW it's what I study in university.
- The Quiet One: Until the ice breaks, that is, and sometimes even after that; if I have nothing to say I will shut up.
- Type 2/type 3 Glasses Adjuster.
- What the Hell Is That Accent?: People can't pin down my accent, but most think I was born in Britain or something.
- Writing by the Seat of Your Pants: Another bad habit I'm trying to get rid of.
- Younger Than They Look: Take my word on it. People tend to think that I'm ten years older than my true age, probably because of the beard, coat and (sometimes) potted-plant-on-the-head.
