    This was originally a thread with the purpose of getting new members to introduce themself with a semi-fancy speech at the beginning, though it got merged. Quite understandable, but now that i know this one exists, no need to change my introduction in and of itsef, right?~
    though, the rest I'm changing to fit into where i ended up in, haha~

    Hi, I'm Tilgarial!
    some people started calling me tiger here - most likely due to my profile pic, if it isnt obvious - but Ty would be okay too.
    While I did register on NU a while back, I have been aktive - or rather, getting aktive - on the forum for so 3 or 4 months at most, so I do consider myself a new member!
    My personality ... I'd say is rather chaotic. sometimes here, sometimes there. I do consider myself friendly, helpful and nice, though not a good person. However, I'm quite sure I'm also not a bad person, though i can be a bit teasing, or in case of games, even mean sometimes~
    I'd also say I'm funny, sometimes, but maybe I'm just good at laughing, haha
    As to novels and stories, I dont read a specific genre, but much rather look for a 'feel' type of thing. like, if the story is interesting, new, simply well written, I'd probably read it, though I do avoid things centering on strong emotions such as love and hate~
    otherwise... hobby-wise, I'm kind of a jack of all trades, master of none, haha
    In my younger years, i watched quite a few documentaries, I spent quite a bit of time on mental things, like philosophy or chess, I enjoy nature and plants, I've read quite a few books - physical ones, this time, I've watched a few anime, I've played five different sports in my live and I'm rather interested in science~
    I consider myself quite good at listening, so even if I have no idea what you are talking about, If its interesting or funny - which basically everything is - dont think you're annoying me or something~
    After all, I'm almost impossible to annoy. it has been tested, that was the best laugh I had that year, hahaha
    and, if you just read the same introduction I wrote, you probably wont doubt that I have a bit of a narcistic tendency :'p
    though, without the "I'm better than thou" part, so its not like i look down on anybody or anything~

    ...It has been brought to my attention, that there is already a welcome thread for introductions~
    though, the wording in the tilte is quite a bit different, so I'll just leave this here... unless a Mod thinks its redundant, haha
    maybe I'll get the shier ones or something~

    Hahah, well, there were a few different wordings, but in general it was accepted that old members are hard to approach for newbies~
    though, its not like i did a survey or anything, so its more of an educated guess, i suppose, haha

    ....but how is the sentient rock tony scary? :'p

    This more looks like segregation and entitlement to have their own things.
    Also a bit of an ego where one wants to promote himself

    I'm totally a narcist, though i wouldnt purposefully promote myself, so I have no right saying anything to the ego thing, but how is this segregation?
    though, it already got merged, so I'll be editing it to fit into the new thread~

    Hi, call me innieminnie- it's from that rhyme innie minnie mionie moe. I'm totally and completely asexual. I don't do relationships like at all. I could maybe stand a romantic/no touch bond, but that's about it.

    I'm an avid BL fan, not so much into yuri, but I've read a few. I often like to write the beginnings to a story in my spare time and then abandon it when I find something good to read. It's a good thing I don't post them, otherwise I'd be hated.

    I'm also a health addict and a hypochondriac. I'm pretty nice when I'm not being random and confusing people. I dislike weak and shy ukes. I dislike pretty much all shojou as well. I dislike most romance drama in general actually. Finding novelupdates was a life saver to the picky reading addict that I am. Even though the cn's scare me from a rl perspective..

    Anywho, I'm a pretty good aquaintance to have and to start a random conversation with in the moment, but not so much charismatic lifetime friend material ^o^ Nice to meet you!

    Hi, I'm nachte!

    I'm a fujoshi and started rummaging around NU because I'm MXTX trash and I need more BL historical/xianxia-type novels to read. I'm a sucker for found family and magical beast/familiar tropes, and I love hijinks, sassy characters, and loving, but bickering couples .

    I can't read Chinese, but I know Japanese, so I've been working on translating a novel to add to the BL stash. I have a 4 chapter buffer so far, so hopefully I can start posting it soon.

    Nice to meet everyone!

    well basically I'm above average degenrate person who want to read ln/wn stuff that caught my attention.
    i like fantasy/isekai tags but im all rounder basically be it has bad reviews and good reviews, but i prefer fluffy stuff/idiot couple romance.
    i love music alot like such as "Thunder "by boys like girls, and jap music such as op of oregairu by nagi yanagi , "sincerely" by true and my own country song.


    that's all there is to it ,i'm quite shy after all
