    My avatar comes from a mix of some other interests/obsessions I've had. I was in ceramics in high school for all 4 years, and in one year I made a 2 foot sculpture of my favorite movie character from my favorite movie: Toothless from HTTYD
    It's been one of the best pieces I've ever made, and it's freestanding, even the wings........ as for any of my signatures, they just refer to my own cryptic nature, dealing with things we cannot understand and coming up with ideas nobody would expect from a dorky nerd like me..
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    I got the name divaskid when I was in highschool and in a group of Bette Midler fans. One of my friends (jokingly we called her diva) used to always call me kid because I was obviously the youngest one in the group. One day while we were all chatting they gave me the nickname diva's kid.... And it's stuck ever since!

    My avatar is a ping (Pinguicula "1717") that jimscott gave me, who is one of the first people on the forum I really talked to and showed the true generosity of most of the people on this forum Its also cute and pink which I'm always quite fond of.

    I'm bringing this one back up to the surface in case anyone wishes to add to it or to see what others have said about their chosen TF names. We have numerous new people since the last installments. There's a full explanation on the first post.

    During sessions of the Roman senate when very sensitive matters were to be discussed a rose would be suspended from the ceiling of the meeting chamber to remind everyone present that what was discussed was not to leave the room. These meetings were called "sub rosa", meaning " under the rose".
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Dynastes satanas is one of the rarest beetles alive in the wild. It is native to the La Paz mountainous region of Bolivia. I was selected to help breed this species in order to increase the amount of survivors in the wild. The species may have gone extinct if we had not stepped in.

    Mine is the name of a battlemage in a fantasy book series written by a local author that I greatly enjoyed as a kid. I have a very difficult time coming up with names for things so I've been using this one for a long time.

    Mine is my last name and the day of the month I was born. Been using it for a while for forums and some video games.

    It's not a reference to Herbert Axelrod, the fish guy, even though I keep aquariums. Apparently some people here and on the fish forums have thought that. Just an unfortunate coincidence.
