Since I apparently never posted it here:

The name is actually something I misheard, kind of. Before I knew any Japanese, I was playing Star Ocean 4 with JP voices (bad move sometimes because The Doe shone too brightly in some scenes to read the subtitles) and there was this very short character that they at one point referred to as "chibisuke" (I am actually still unsure but I believe that is what was actually said). I thought they said chibiscuit though (as in smashing chibi and biscuit together) and thought that was brilliant. And so when I needed a name for my FFNET account I went for that. I've been using it for most things since.

Well my original name was Thlayli, which is Bigwigs name. I didn't really have an internet handle back then so I just went with that. Now it's Owsalfa, which is actually a misspelling...I was reading it wrong in the book, but its OwsLAfa. I do wish I could change it to be the right spelling, but its become my "brand" lol

Just found out this thread existed.

My username, EmpireAtWar, comes from a game; Star Wars: Empire At War. It was a a Strategy game, and I spent many countless hours engaging in intense ship-to-ship space battles amomgst the stars, command entire legions of Stormtroopers in massive ground wars, or do daring raids on the Empire as the Rebels. I just fell in love it, being the Star Wars fan that I am.

Also, the name just sounds cool, a large scale, epic vibe to it. Empire At War. That's why I chose my username

About half way through the Hobbit Trilogy being screened, I started roleplaying Tolkien characters online (Some were ocs,) I missed DnD, Pathfinder and the watered down Wizard's of the Coast Star Wars rp game which I'd played at uni and got a little tired of writing Tolkien fan fic and wanted the same thing I had at uni online with Tolkien. I had bought the One Ring rp game book (and it is a good resource for Tolkien stuff even if you don't get to play the game properly) and Kili was one of the canons that I chose to rp and it kinda stuck. I do have some OCs which I love as dearly, but canon characters seem to be more accepted. Now, I'm back to writing fan fic again.
