Bold the ones you've read COMPLETELY, italicize the ones you've read part of. Watching the movie or the cartoon doesn't count. Abridged versions don't count either.

BTW, according to the BBC if you've read 7 of these, you are above the average.

kenaressa: (CSI - early is evil)
Well, except for the fact that I really don't like to consiously experience this particular time of day... stolen from [livejournal.com profile] dirtyvirgin



You're the time of day right around sunrise, when the sky is still a pale bluish gray. The streets are empty, and the grass and leaves are a little bit sparkly with dew. You are the sound of a few chirpy birds outside the window. You are quiet, peaceful, and contemplative. If you move slowly, it's not because you're lazy – it's because you know there's no reason to rush. You move like a relaxed cat, pausing for deep stretches that make your muscles feel alive. You are long sips of tea or coffee (out of a mug that's held with both hands) that slowly warm your insides just as the sun is brightening the sky.

Stolen from numerous people on my friends list:

YOU'RE ON MY FRIENDS LIST, I want to know 36 things about you. I don't care if we never talk, or if we already know everything about each other. Short and sweet is fine ... You're on my list, so I want to know you better!
BE HONEST! COPY FROM HERE THEN SEND DIRECTLY TO ME IN A COMMENT THEN, REPOST THE EMPTY QUESTIONS.

The English version of the JE ranking meme:
I would like you to notice mousie, that all the littlest ones are near the bottom XP.

Also, I'm sure no one is surprised by my first seven.  If you are.....how do we know each other again?

1 Shibutani Subaru
2 Yasuda Shota
3 Maruyama Ryuhei
4 Nishikido Ryo
5 Ohkura Tadayoshi
6 Yokoyama Yu
6 Murakami Shingo
8 Ikuta Toma
8 Sakurai Sho

And the second one:

[personal profile] spurious's JE Pairing Ranking Script:

1 Subaru/Yasu

3 Yoko/Hina
4 Yasu/Ohkura
5 Subaru/Hina
6 Ryo/Uchi
7 Toma/Yamapi
8 Subaru/Ohkura
9 Takki/Tsubasa
10 Tegoshi/Massu

There are some very odd pairings on that list, to my thinking.

rules: post the explanation of where your username came from. then tag ten users whose explanations you'd like to hear. if you are tagged, then post the explanation to your page.


Explanation: My username comes from one of my first roleplaying characters.

In university, I started doing online journal roleplaying (yahoo groups) as well as live action at conventions and around campus. We mostly played elves of various types. Kenaressa was a woodelf with serious issues....she'd been a drow slave for a while.... Anyway, she was my first character that was actually a full character.

I've since branched out into more types of rp. I haven't played Kenaressa in years, however, I've kept the name for almost all my usernames online. It's nice to have something consistent (plus I like the name ^__^ ).


tagging: I'm not actually going to tag anyone....if you feel your name is odd or often misunderstood, please feel free to do this!

If you go over 45, you're a bad influence.
If you go under 15, chances are you live under a rock and have no life... even more harsh.

TOTAL IN ALL : 41, hmmmmm
