’Sup, peeps? I’m new. My name is Dylan. I write stuff. Now we all have a firm grasp of the obvious.
Onto the interesting bit!
🃏Most importantly for those of you who are unfamiliar with me (that’s all of you), I’m the class clown. 90% of what I say shouldn’t be taken seriously. I write comedic fantasy, mate.
🎲 I’m an ENTP and 7w8. Not super familiar with enneagram, but I’m very knowledgeable about MBTI. (say it with me, the online tests are not to be trusted)
🏴☠️ I’m a fan of pirates. Jack Sparrow for the win.
🐍 Slytherin in the house.
🍍 Pineapples are both edibly and aesthetically pleasing. I don’t care that this fruit attempts to dissolve your mouth in acid every time you try to eat it, it’s worth it.
🍉 Same for watermelons except minus the mouth-dissolving part.
⚓️ Ships and boats are kinda my whole thing. I know basically nothing about modern ships, but I’m very familiar with historical ships. Basically, if you’d point at it and say “pirate ship!” I can tell you about it. If you point at it and say “it’d be so inconvenient if that hit an iceberg,” then I can’t.
🥋I have a black belt in mixed martial arts. Fear me, mortal.
🎹 I’m a self-taught pianist. Forget the classical stuff, I play movie soundtracks and Twenty-Øne Pilots.
⚽️ Though I don’t play any more, I love soccer. (notice the trend of me and kicking things)
🎭 Unfortunately, I’m not in theatre, but I’d love to be—speech, acting, and impressions are all definitely my thing.
🎬 The three original <i>Pirates of the Caribbean</i> films are my favorite movies.
🎧 My taste in music is very broad, but I enjoy rock and rap the best.
🍤 Shrimp is one of my all-time favorite foods.
🍕 Pizza is also up there.
🌮 And tacos.
🍦 And I consider myself an ice cream connoisseur, 10% because I love ice cream, and 90% because it’s an excuse to call myself “connoisseur.”
🥠 The only fortune cookie I’ve ever had said that I’d be fortunate in everything I do and I’m kinda put off that it didn’t specify good or bad fortune.
♣️ I dabble in card tricks and sleight of hand magic.
🤙 The shaka sign is kinda my thing.
If you still don’t get me after all of that it’s okay because I don’t either.
Funny story, I actually lost the instruction manual on my way into this life. It’s cool though, I wouldn’t have read it anyways.
Whatever, tell me about yourselves.

*Pirates of the Caribbean theme music starts playing*
I can tell we’re going to get along fine. 🙂 Because I can most heartily agree with most of everything you said. 🙂 Nice to meet you, I’m Urwen.
Kirat: *rolls eyes* here’s the part where she asks what kind of stories you write, who your favorite PotC (Pirates of the Caribbean) character is, what kind of artists you listen to, what your favorite animal is-
Me: Kirat, *shakes head* Can you not see that I’m trying to make friends?!?!?!
Kirat: You ask the same things every time!
Me: Fine. *turns back to introducing myself* What kind of books do you like? Who’re your favorite authors?
Kirat: You say that all the time too!
Me: *shoves Kirat into the closest closet*
I’m very excited to meet you. 🙂

Self taught pianist? Awesome!!

I actually decide to show up on here for the first time in months, and look who’s signed up. XD
Yo, welcome to the crowd. 😉February 14, 2020 at 4:00 pm #106205
@urwen-starial I write comedic fantasy. My favorite potc character is Jack Sparrow (fellow ENTP btw 😏). My favorite music artists are probably Twenty-One Pilots, NF, All Time Low, and Paradise Fears (beware content in those last two), but like I said, my taste is super varied, so it’s a huge mix. Sharks and parrots are my favorite animals. 🦈🦜 I’ve read a wide variety and I’m familiar with a lot of different styles, but I’m honestly not a big fan of reading. I do enjoy Harry Potter, The Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic, and Percy Jackson. I’m about to read Going Postal, and I have a feeling I’m going to love it. Favorite author . . . don’t really have one. I don’t have real favorites when it comes to music artists or authors, because I’ll enjoy some of their stuff, less of their other stuff . . . my taste is very patchwork. Probably another important thing to know about me.
@emberynus-the-dragonslayer Yep. Never took lessons and never wanted to have to memorize theory or play Mozart, so I just taught myself how to play by ear and use minimal theory.
@lianajdouglas Oh no. There’s only one ENTJ I know who could be this insufferable. 😉 Thanks for the welcome.

*nods* We definitely have similar tastes in music and movies and books.
How many of the Percy Jackson books have you read? I read the first series, and through the beginning of House of Hades. And the first book of the Trials of Apollo.
Have you read the Kane Chronicles or any other books by Rick Riordan? (if you haven’t, I really recommend the Kane Chronicles.). 🙂

@urwen-starial What’s your taste in music and books? I’m also a huge fan of Hamilton. I’m going to count that as an artist.
I’ve ready all of the PJO books, all of the HO books, and as many of the Trials of Apollo as have been written.
Read them, but really wasn’t a fan tbh.
They're not mistakes, they're unexpected plot twists.February 14, 2020 at 4:27 pm #106225
I like NF, and Hamilton too, 🙂 I also listen to a lot of movie soundtracks (HP, PotC, Disney. . .)
What’s your favorite songs from Hamilton (mine’d be It’s Quiet Uptown, Burn, The World was Wide Enough, and Wait for it.)
Any favorite NF songs?
Books, I tend to like the majority of what I read the first time through, then go back through and critique it, to help me understand the parts I didn’t, and to learn about my own writing and where I’m flawed.
“Tears sparkle like fallen stars, the world at our fingertips, We didn’t know, It wasn't happiness.February 14, 2020 at 4:34 pm #106228
Awww, but no TOP, Paradise Fears, or All Time Low? What about Imagine Dragons? The early years of Hawk Nelson?
Hard. Washington On Your Side, Guns and Ships, Satisfied, What’d I Miss, You’ll Be Back, and Cabinet Battle #1 are all up there though. Quiet Uptown is also pretty awesome.
Motivated, Outro, and Oh Lord probably.
Ah cool cool.
They're not mistakes, they're unexpected plot twists.February 14, 2020 at 4:57 pm #106232
Imagine dragons. . . well, maybe one or two, I don’t listen to a lot of their music. Idk these other ones you mentioned.
Oh Lord is one of my most favorite NF songs. Have you listened to Paid my dues, or any of the other albums?
“Tears sparkle like fallen stars, the world at our fingertips, We didn’t know, It wasn't happiness.February 14, 2020 at 4:59 pm #106233
Listened to all of them, yep.

@dylan-yarbrough *peace sign* Heyo!
You already sound like one of my characters. He might be an ENTP too. He’s kind of–
Tai: *rushes in* hibye *rushes out*
Me: *calls after him* What did you do???
Kiet: *runs in* Something to do with snow wolves, explosions, and Enn Dera’s house. *runs out*
Dari: *runs in sweating* this-isn’t-gonna-end-well-it’s-all-his-fault *runs out*
Me: imma be right back
***ten hours and several visits to the police station and hospital later***
Tai: *baseball slides in* Sooo, heard we might have something in common?
Dari: *limps in on crutches* hOw CaN yOu AcT lIkE nOtHiNg HaPpEnEd
Kiet: *rolls in in a wheelchair* Because. . . he’s Tai.
Grace: *walks in without a single scratch* I still think the police should have taken him into custody.
Sooo, I hope you’re not TOO similar. . .
(tho if you are I just call that research opportunities)
ANYway. *goes through list* I’m proud Hufflepuff. Pineapples are a great way to end up in urgent care. BLACK BELT THAT IS AWESOME I wish I knew some martial arts but I barely know anything in that realm. I can, however, sound like I do by spouting out “I don’t eat vegetables” in Japanese. I’m working on finding time to learn piano. I LOVE theater though I haven’t had time to do any for. . . a couple of years. Shrimp! I made sushi with that earlier! Ice cream connoisseurship (literally had to copy and paste your spelling on that word)! Another one joins the ranks!
Oh, and I’m INFP.

@naiya-dyani Lol Depends how you define “similar.” I’ve never quite been arrested, but I’ve jumped fences and ducked security.

you know it’s illegal even if you don’t get caught right
Tai: Says who?
Dari: Says this arrest warrant.

@naiya-dyani I mean, I’m not breaking and entering here. I just sometimes find myself on the wrong side of a fence, or decide that it would probably be better if I didn’t have to explain myself to anyone, get it?
