Sausage lovers pizza to be precise. But enough of this comedy! For me there is but one pizza! The Hawaiian Meatless!

So that's like what... Just cheese and pinapple?

You won't. It'll be that avatar of yours that you will always be measured up to.

I desperately want to go insane or have some other justifiable excuse to use those avatars I showed you. Perhaps for October...

...yes. It is literally the only pizza I have ever tasted.

For some reason I feel that the people here become defined by their avatars and when you have a memorable one for so long and then suddenly try to change it, you find it is impossible to out do the original. As if the original image best describes you and everything else is just a passing phase. For example, the House avatar you used, I feel, was the one people remember most. I often tried to imagine him in his roles from Black Adder to reduce the effectiveness but was unsuccessful.

That's an... interesting pizza choice. I wouldn't eat it willingly, but why do you?

Sometimes, yes on the Avatar business. Sometimes you will have people who keep theirs for a long time and its hard to shake it off. But other times you get an avatar that fits you perfectly in your personality and how you act. I can't really escape the House looking bored avatar or this avatar of Arthas that I had sometime after I first joined.

Every Friday I eat a cheese and pineapple pizza, regardless of occasion or location. And even before that it was the only pizza I would eat because... I was a very strange child. And now it is not that I love it so much (and I do) that I will not accept any other topping, but rather that in my mind it is MY pizza and I can not forsake years of tradition (compulsion), even for a better tasting pizza.

About the avatar, I tried changing it for a week but it just was not as likable (probably the lack of the colour red) and so I changed back. I have considered drawing myself a more personal avatar like Brother Orin but it is finding time and the drive to do so.

So...I'm forever going to be seen as Nigel Star in the eyes of those that have once seen his glory. I'm okay with that.

And my reaction to your mention of October...

   Oh My God, forgive me for sounding like a giddy teenage girl...but I FUCKING LOVE HALLOWEEN! The themes, the stories, pretty much everything. I like specific details on many other things, that Halloween just brings together. From its history til the way it's celebrated in any culture, even the really twisted practices I find fascinating, would never do many of the things, but learning about them doesn't hurt. Favorite childhood movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas. On FaceBook, when I was temp admin for a tsundere page(forgot if it was heard you like tsunderes, or look out we got a tsundere over here, something along those lines.), it was there someone commented on GT, I tried to add him so I could thank him for introducing me, but he declined it T.T It really wasn't hard for me to get absorbed by it, since Halloween Town and the FUCKING THEME SONG, dragged me in immediately. Wow, I let this go far. In shot though, I LOVE HALLOWEEN!#EW234R$ I'm going to retrain myself now.

I change my avatar every now and then. There are probably a couple that I've used that fit me decently well, but I don't like to use the same thing for long. Gotta keep things fresh.

No Tenshi I think white square could become very memorable. I am actually jealous. That is exactly what I was going for with my avatar but I could not make Mimi leave.

I just started re watching Soul eater and I think that Crona would represent me perfectly but I do not have a picture of it to use.

Mostly for Ari, my avatar used to be a circular loading bar that would go around and around for a while. Then once the Titles came out, I made it an arrow pointing up. People didn't seem to get I was actually making the arrow point up at my title, which I changed every once and a while to something witty. Once I went into a thread and someone said they didn't "get" it, I switched it to a sideways arrow, as in to point to what I'm saying.

I've been thinking of using an actual avatar for a while, but nothing calls to me. I'll stick with this arrow for a while longer.

Also Fievel, your Avatar is REALLY familiar looking, but I can't put my finger on it...

Right! I used to watch a bit of that until... something happened to it. I want to say "Adult Swim" happened, but I'm not sure about that.

Ah well, it was well animated enough, but I only recall ever watching like two episodes.

The way I pick an avatar is, I think of a game or anime I like, and pick a character from said game/anime. Pretty basic. My first avatar was Delsus, from Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana. I chose Bleach this time around, however I'm not so sure this avatar fits me. I might pick a different one here soon.

I've always wondered why you chose an arrow for an avatar. Now I know.

I'm sure you could find one.

You could say you've gained a "smashing" reputation. But yes, I too will always remember you by that one avatar. Has there been any avatar that I chose that stuck with everyone here?

Maybe the next avatar you use should be Jonny Yong Bosch or the black power ranger.

Not really my thing. So far I've considered God Hand, Soul Eater, Cowboy Bebop, Another Deadman Wonderland, Fullmetal Alchemist, or One Piece.

Personal choice, One Piece. Opinion on your choice, FMA. Going for something widely accepted, Cowboy Bebop.

On the avatar discussion, I have so far stuck to using art of my characters. I think I've only changed my avatar three times now--and one of them was just a "sparklified" version of this current one, created by Alo.

I've also stuck to only one of my characters so far, at that. I feel like it might be a drastic change if I switched to art of another character. XD

So Hiroko, have you given any thought as to what your new avatar would be?
As for me, I'm gonna think about it a bit.

@Blood Lord: I think a lot of people would, too. XD

@Havoc: I've thought about it a lot, actually. I have some avatars set up and stored away in my deviantART scraps for a while now to use in the future, but I dunno, I've always hesitated about actually choosing and using one. So I end up using those prepared avatars on my Skype instead, whenever I'm bored.

I've had a lot of Avatars. And, honestly, I like my current one, many because of my new love for QOTSA and their new album.
