Hi. I'm KWSN, or Knight Who Says NI! Filling this out will take a while. Also known as IOSpace.

Some assorted tropes about her:

  • (Slightly) Abusive Parents: again, slightly. Her mom is a massive stickler for good grades, more so for her than her brother. This led to some serious conflict between the two. See also Coming-Out Story below.
  • All Women Love Shoes: Averted and hard. While she does have four pairs of shoes (one everyday, one dress, one sandals, and one boots), she doesn't desire any more. The fact that she has size 13 mens feet doesn't help matters much.
  • Advertisement:
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Admittedly. She's very awkward socially and has very few things holding her back when she opens her mouth. She was tested for Aspergers Syndrome, but didn't have enough traits to be officially diagnosed with it.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Claims she's going to hell because she's A. Transgender, B. a lesbian (mostly), and C. left handed.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Oh yes. She has an official diagnosis of ADHD.
  • Berserk Button: Do not doubt her geek/nerd/whathaveyou status. It will piss her off.
    • The scripting language Tcl. Do not get her started on it.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: An interesting subversion. It does take her a lot to finally get to the point where she stops being silly, but she mostly doesn't unload her rage on people and just rants privately.
  • Bi the Way: in more of a "I like guys as eye candy, but I'd much rather sleep with girls" way.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Part of why her parents don't get along with her
  • Advertisement:
  • Butch Lesbian: Of a sort. Shades more towards Chapstick though.
  • Can't Hold Her Liquor: Very much so. Caffeine on the other hand... She once drank the equivalent of 4L of coffee in one go. It didn't even phase her
  • Chaotic Neutral: She likes helping people out in times of need, but is very prone to being a bit of a bitch. Combine that with how impulsive she is and there you go. A friend put it as "Chaotic What The Fucking Royal Hell Holy Shit".
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Ooooh boy. Either she's plotting something absolutely off the wall silly, or she's doing it to troll people into thinking it's that. Varies it enough that it's hard to predict which is which.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: prone to them at times
  • Coming-Out Story: Her parents did not take the big revelation well
    • Went well pretty much everywhere else though.
  • Crazy Awesome: Likes to believe she channels this sometimes, usually during her Large Ham moments.

  • Cuddle Bug: See No Sense of Personal Space below
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Slightly, but mostly not due to parents or anything (most of it is either her fault or due to things outside of anyone's control.)
  • Deadpan Snarker: Can be.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: or socks for that matter.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Largely inverted. Perhaps one of the most cautious drivers out there, and will wait way longer than what is needed to make a turn if other cars are coming. Usually drives about 5 MPH over the speed limit though. Make her drive in Illinois? She gets very aggressive then.
  • Everything's Better with Penguins: Her DJ nickname was Penguin.
  • Fingerless Gloves: She wears them when she's out on her bicycle and has a pair that are warmer that she got during marching band.
  • Flat Joy
  • Flat "What"
  • Flying Spaghetti Monster: An al dente believer. R'Amen.
  • Foreign Cuss Word: prone to uttering Bollocks in place of BS, and is aware of it's swear level.
  • For the Lulz: If it makes her laugh, she'll do it. See Troll.
  • The Gadfly: Occasionally.
  • Gamer Chick: And how!
  • Gender-Blender Name: Her full name is Alexandria, but almost everyone calls her Alex. Justified in that her legal name is simply Alex
  • Genki Girl: very hyper. Case in point: When she asked a long time friend of hers to rate how hyper she is on a scale from one to ten, she got "there isn't a number that exists to explain that fully" as a response.
  • Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: see Bi the Way above.
  • Gratuitous French: occasionally
  • Headphones = Isolation: Played straight/averted. Played straight when she really wants to tune out, averted when half the time she leaves her left ear (ironically her better ear) uncovered.
  • Important Haircut: Inverted and played straight. She started growing her hair out instead at a pretty important part of her life, then later played it straight.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Prone to these. Lady help you whens he starts up into a Hurricane of Puns
  • Insane Troll Logic: Can do this.
  • Insistent Terminology: Her new name vs her former name. To a lesser extent pronouns.
  • Lad-ette: She pretty much does everything in the trope but drink like a sailor. Some people even doubt she's female on the inside she's that masculine. This has lead to a phrase of hers: "There's a difference between being a girl and being girly. I suggest you learn it." Also see Tomboy below.
  • Lady Swears-a-Lot: yup.
  • Large Ham: oh yes, has been told she has an awesome Evil Laugh in the past. She doesn't do it as much anymore.
  • Milwaukee: Hails from the area.
  • Mind Screw: Likes to mess with people's heads. See also Troll and For the Lulz.
  • Nerd: DUH
  • No Pronunciation Guide: She can't count how many different ways KWSN has been pronounced. Her official pronunciation aside from "K W S N" is "Kweezen".
    • Subverted as of late as she's been using "iospace" as a nick, which is simply I O Space.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: comes with a warning, "WARNING! MAJOR HUGGER"
  • Not a Morning Person: And how! Or, well, was until she had to get up at 5 am for several months.
  • N-Word Privileges: abuses this constantly in regards to her sexuality
  • Oh My Gods!: Prone to it
  • OOC Is Serious Business: When she gets quiet outside of settings where one is expected to be quiet (for example: during tests), she's either tired and finally crashed, or something is very wrong.
  • Oral Fixation Fixation: Almost always has something near or in her mouth, usually something non-edible that she has hanging out (if it's edible, chances are it's sunflower seeds in the shell still).
  • Passionate Sports Girl: HUGE Packers fan. To a lesser extent Badgers and Brewers (will keep tabs on how they're doing, but doesn't always watch). Enjoys watching hockey and loves a good hockey fight.
  • Proud to Be a Geek: Spacefan, computer scientist, video gamer... she could go on.
  • Real Women Never Wear Dresses: Averted. One of her fav outfits is a blouse with a skirt. Recently played straight though.
  • Rebellious Spirit: Huge punk fan, doesn't like conforming to the standards of society, and other reasons!
  • Ridiculous Procrastinator: Proud owner of a shirt that says "procrastinators unite tomorrow"
  • Self-Deprecation
  • Snark Knight
  • The Southpaw: Proud of that fact.
  • Squee!: prone to it
  • Stepford Smiler: has been one in the past, dropped it as of late. Tends to invoke it under periods of high stress but won't deny that she is stressed though.
  • Strange Girl: Oh so much. When she gets into a strange mood, she stops making sense. Not that she made much before hand.
  • Tomboy: Oh so very much. She grew up wanting to be an astronaut, but not one like Neil Armstrong or John Glenn. No, she wanted to be like Sally Ride (who for the uninformed, was the first US female in space).
  • Transgender: Of the male-to-female variety.
  • Troll: See For the Lulz above. Cosplays as Yukari Yakumo due to this. Lady save you if you catch her when she's gone into "uber troll mode" (as her friend puts it). She finds Future Diary hilarious in that state. A good way to tell her mental state is to see how much of a troll she is. The bigger the troll factor, the more stressed and/or tired she likely is. This generally applies to Real Life than the internet.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Known to trade snarks with friends because it amuses her.
  • Yaoi Fan: very slightly, not as much as...
  • Yuri Fan: as a bisexual female (and currently riding a massive lesbian streak)... what do you think?
  • Your Other Left: Slightly dyslexic


How well does it match the trope?
