Name: Rockie (I also go by
various other pseudonyms)
Real Name: Just call me Rockie; I'm more comfortable with
Age: Old enough to be tried as an adult! :S
Gender: How dare you ask me that! :P
Location: Chi Town (Chicago, not Chinatown)
Howdy. Wuz up, y'all? Rockie here. I guess you're here to
learn a little about me... What's to tell?
Okay, if you really must
know, I am a FEMALE, not a male as so many others
believed at first *cough* Nabooru *cough* Sheik *cough,
cough* I don't really mind; I often talk, dress, and play
like a guy. (I'm pretty good at baseball and I've been
told I'd make a pretty good quarterback? (o_O))
Currently, I'm in the process of starting school again,
and start on my way towards a degree in computer
animation. (I've actually seriously considered video game
Offline, I like hanging out
with my bestest friend in the whole wide world and go on
misadventures. We've written some fanfiction stories
together featuring ourselves. (Some are posted on
fanfiction.net; I'll tell you more about them if you're
interested.) Lately, I've also had a writing itch. I used
to write all the time in my "secret" collection
of notebooks, and recently, things have lead me back to
them. Among some of my writings are some pretty old Zelda
fanfics I started, yet never got back to. (Some from as
far back as early 1999.) I also love to draw, and I'm
especially into the manga style of drawing. I'm also a
book worm! I really like fairy tales - the ones before
they got butchered up, corrupted, and made into "children's"
bedtime stories. (Ever read "Catskin"? It's not
for kids.) I like to read about mythical creatures, such
as elves, dragons, fairies, unicorns, etc., too. I also
like manga and anime. Some of my favorites thus far are
Gundam Wing, Sailor Moon (censorship ruined it for me),
Fushigi Yugi, Gundam X, G Gundam, Marmalade Boy, Mars,
Planet Ladder, Magic Knight Rayearth, and Escaflowne. Oh,
and of course I like video games! :)
The first system I ever got
was the original Nintendo, so I pretty much grew up on
Nintendo. Unfortunately for me, I was too young to really
understand how to play video games, and so I never got
too far on any of them. I remember playing Super Mario
Bros., Chip 'n Dale's Rescue Rangers, the first two
Zeldas, and an RPG called Ultima back then.
As the years went on, more
systems started popping up and I owned most of them, but
I somehow wandered away from video games for a while...
That was until Pokemon came along.
I LOVED Pokemon. I fell in
love with it after watching the first episode I had ever
seen, which was "Hypno's Naptime." I thought
Pikachu was adorable. The show was just too cute. :)
Being the Poke-fanatic I was, I watched the show everyday
it was on, memorized the Pokerap, and went out and bought
my first Gameboy - a black Gameboy Pocket - so I could
play the Blue version of the game. For a while, Pokemon
was the only game I played until Christmas of '98 when I
got the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. A sibling of
mine made a big deal about the game and I remember
thinking, "What's so great about Zelda?" (Hey,
I was a little kid when I had last played Zelda). After
watching him play it for a while, I got a little
interested/curious about it, so I started to play it.
never put the controller down.
fact, I ended up having to fight with him over the
controller. I thought it was the greatest game ever
created, and to this day, OoT remains my favorite game.
I joined the Zelda Group (back
when it was still a Community) in February 2002. I wanted
to join a group that seemed like it would have lots of
activity going on. Zelda had nearly 400 members at the
time, so I joined and posted messages every so often.
So how did I end up an
assistant manager? It's kind of odd, actually. One day, I
checked my e-mail and saw a message from "Nabooru".
(I thought I had done something wrong in the group at
first! o_O) It was actually an invitation to become an
assistant manager, which I of course accepted. ^_~
I am also the assistant
manager of the Giga Zelda Stuff For Zelda Dudes group. It's kind of funny how
that came about. I just went there one day and saw "assistant
manager" next to my name, no warning whatsoever, but
it was a pleasant surprise. :) I'm also the manager of
two other Zelda groups that an online friend of mine
created: The Zelda Sages and the Zelada Manegers.
guess that's about it. Have I bored you yet? :P
and by the way, don't be afraid to talk to me. I don't
bite... Very often. :P
y'alls! Have fun!
