Oh. Um. Hi.
I guess I'll just slink in here. I'm secretagentfan and lookwrittenthings.
I'm a college student working on my BFA in Theatre (basically acting + playwriting + english major stuff). I draw too, but I'm kind of eh at that but I love to do it so I do it anyway. I'm am a generally nervous, stupendously awkward, person. I love theatre and I love acting and performing in general. So I'm kind of a weird mix of outgoing and completely terrified by human connections. I don't understand it either.

I love theatre because I love words, and I love hearing people say them. My favorite thing in the world is hearing someone read something they've written out loud and with confidence. There's this additional layer between the words themselves and the writer that kind of gets busted open when people read aloud. I love that. Plays are like concentrating the words to be how you think they should be said but leaving them open enough for someone else to take them in 50 different but still interesting directions, and I think it's just a really cool way of looking at anything.
But also supremely frustrating.
Plays are weird. Life is hard.
I like books too. Again-- the word thing.
I hope I didn't sound pretentious as all get out there. fldsfa;

Uh, what else? I'm Texan. I don't live on a farm or have a horse or anything. City Texan. Keepin' it classy.

OH, No. 6. Duh.
I first discovered No. 6…to be honest I don’t remember how long ago it was. I’d say 3 years but that feels too far. Maybe 2? I watched the anime, was extremely befuddled by the ending but enjoyed the characters. When I found out it was a light novel I was super excited because I figured the ending was just filler. I read the chapters as they were translated—I started when the 4th book was just coming up (I think?)  I binge-read the first 2 one day I remember that much. Of course, back then I wasn’t involved in the fandom, I read and enjoyed the novels but that was basically it.

But the more I go through the more my thoughts drift back to this series and I creep on the fics all the time and basically I have a problem. Have had a problem. For a while. Yeah I just really like No. 6. Rather a lot a lot.

So um. It’s really nice to officially meet all of you instead of creeping the shadows. Cool.
<3

@secretagentfan: A TEXAN! I know that's a huge state, but I have to ask, are you by chance going to A-Kon next month?

...I'm going to be Eve there. Probably the smallest and sassiest Eve in all of Texas.

introduction time. \(OvO)/

i have many names and recently, people have begun calling me 'rege'. i'm 18 and apparently i'm a pomeranian turning chihuahua.
i draw a lot and i love to eat read books. i sing very off-key too, sometimes and other times i write stuff. i don't dance. i like to sleep and i listen to a lot of music. i collect plastic spoons! (O▿O) i like monologues and i swim but i'm very scared of the ocean. i've never gone to a different country and i'm jealous of you guys listing off all the places you've visited TTvTT. my family has lots of pets and i have an older brother and a younger sister.

i'm in my first year in college. actually, i've been in college since i was 15 and i should have graduated by now. OTL. i dropped out of my previous schools due to some =w= things. not bullies though! just =w= things. i'm the quiet kid who always sits at the back and stares at teachers until they look away. i don't like being called in front.

i am pretty easy to upset ahahaha and i aplogize. i don't like being around a lot of people because i get agitated very easily. also i don't really know how to make friends. i'm scared of people. a lot of things make me nervous. also i can be quite pessimistic щ(;;w;;щ). i always get sick during summer. and only idiots get sick in summer so what does that tell you?

i'm not a manga type of person. *hyperventilates*

mostly i just lurk at forums so i might not seem very active. i apologize again.
and i don't use proper capitalization mostly because i'm lazy. i hope i don't offend anybody.

also hello! (=▿=)

Oh man, I'm terrible at these things /)w(\

My name is Millena (You can call me Lena since that's easier, but I have a myriad of nicknames. Whatever you'd like to call me is fine.) I'm 19 at the moment and I'll be 20 in August. I don't want to grow older but unfortunately I can't change the passing of time so here I am. Uhm. I'm incredibly shy so doing this kind of thing isn't really easy and I'm just sitting here like: aslkdwnfkengksrelge what do I say, how do I introduce myself, help. I'm currently an English major and I just finished my second year in college. I'd love to be a writer or work for a publishing company, however I am minoring in education. So I could also be a teacher. I think at this point teaching is what I'm going to end up doing and learning about teaching has been very interesting and has helped a whole lot not only with children, but with myself and other relationships. I think it fosters a better understanding of people as a whole and gives you skills to use not only in the classroom but in life as well. Annnndd I'm rambling.

Uhm. I love reading and writing as well and adore plays. Since New York is only a half an hour to 45 minute drive away, it's quite easy to find one to go see. And Broadway is absolutely amazing ;-; elkfnerkgsnerkslgnreb. Because I saw a personality type mentioned here, I am an INFJ. I also get tired easily being around a lot of people and often need a bit of time alone to recover. I think far too much about humanity and various problems about the world and am really sensitive. OTL

I forgot what I was going to say here. . . I'm the oldest of eight children. I experience deja vu a lot and it creeps me out. My favorite color is red. I really love vanilla ice cream. I don't like tea or coffee. Annnddddd I'm running out of things so-

*squeaks*

Okay, I'm trying hard because I'm always bad at writing anything about myself ...

I'm Sophie but mostly go by Mara or Lawl on the internet (Lawl's my tumblr nickname but anyway) ... I'm 21 (22 in September) and live in Berlin, Germany. I'm a biology student in my fourth semester.

Well, obviously I love No.6 and don't even ask me when I discovered it ... Somewhere past the 7th September since my dash was flooded by 'Reunion should come' post although I hadn't any idea what the manga was about ... I then decided to read the manga and when I got to know that it wasn't scanlated anymore I begrudgingly decided to watch the anime and bawled my eyes out.

Okay, what else? I'm a huge anime fan and like to read although I probably hasn't read a single book in a year or so due to fanfiction. I like to play video games or watch movies (like any normal person I guess). I also write since a couple of years but have a motivation issue and maybe post ... like one story/chapter half a year? I have a tendency to just write short stories and one-shots since I loose inspiration for a multi-chaptered fic quite fast.

I don't know what to write anymore ... Just ask if you want to know anything ^^

Wow, this is really awesome, to introduce everyone like this. i love this thread.

Welp, hi, I'm Scorrando and I'm 17 and as you can tell I'm still in high school. I still feel like I don't know myself that well and so in a phase what is life. But for now, I'm pretty damn shy, and I dont usually join groups like these cuz of my lack of confidence. But i think everything thats happened throughout the month of no.6 fandom downfall and my re-inspiration and passion for No.6 has led me to kinda lurk out of my comfort zone. I just really want to make friends

I'm planning to study engineering in university, and then do software engineering. But I'm not entirely sure what to do with my life. Everyone says to me that I need a path for my future but right now, I have nothing in mind.. Anyways, I love drawing and watching animations, anime and reading manga and fanfiction. It probably all started when my friend introduced me to Naruto in elementary and since then i've been jumping back and forth with drawing and restarted again probably this year. Though I don't take art in my school, I self teach myself.

I live in New Zealand, the land of kiwis and where yo have sheeps as best friends. It's really quiet here. But I really want to go to Japan! I intend to go with my friends next year, but it's more said than done. I've been to Australia, Thailand, Fiji and Korea. and please mind my ignorance to the wide knowledge that the world tries to offer me...

and No.6! Ah, how much I love No.6! It started about one year ago, i think i was on tumblr and i saw an official art of Nezumi and immediately searched on the internet for this hunk. I read the novel first, and it was amazing. then the manga and then anime. Although the story was a bit different in the anime, I think it had its pro and cons. but I support Nezushi all the way and let us hope this obsession never fades.

Oh and other than No.6 and drawing, I really really love sleep. I think its top on my fav list, just above food. Ok thanks for hearing me out and hope to know you well. Good night~

Hello! I suppose I'll muster up the courage to finally introduce myself.

I'm inadequateammy, but you can all call me Annika. I live in the USA, but I am also a citizen of Canada. I haven't lived in Canada yet, but I hope to move up there in a few years. I'm currently living in a small religious community, which can be rather stressful at times.  I'm a high school student at my community's academy. I hope to become a historian, but I might end up leaning towards becoming an english major. We'll have to see how it all pans out. I want to settle down in Ontario after I attend graduate school, but my father tells me that I suffer from wanderlust. He's right. It may take me some time to settle down.

Personality-wise, I'm a pretty open person! I enjoy talking to new people, but I've been known to be "harsh" and "unempathetic!!". Please tell me if I come off coldly. I assure you, I don't intend to. As long as you don't overstep your boundaries, I'm sure we can be good friends. I look forward to interacting with all of you!

I don't do much, but I enjoy reading, cosplay, ect. Shakespeare has recently piqued my interest, so I hope to work my way through his plays. I'm going to be volunteering at my local museum this summer (hell yes sorting artifacts and cataloging the small details built into the museum). I enjoy anime, but the only one I've been following regularly as of late is Akuma No Riddle.

No.6 is incredibly important to me, so this forum makes me happy. I'm probably going to end up lurking, but I'll do my best to contribute. I can't wait to get to know all of you!

Hi there folks! I'm hopeandjoy. Sometimes hopeandjoy9 (that's both my tumblr and my YouTube). You probably haven't seen me around! This is because I cannot draw, use Photoshop, make AMVs, feel nervous about reposting art, and even more nervous about writing characters that I didn't create.

Haha...

But I have loved No. 6 for about 1 to 2 years. I started by seeing the anime and then reading the novels. I cannot begin to describe how much I love this series. At first my old slash brain brought me to the series for a canon m/m pairing without most of the common BL tropes, but I've stayed for all the characters and the story of hope within this series.

I'm 17 going on 18, cis female, and live in the US. I'm about to enter college soon so there's that.

So I do write! I just don't write fanfiction due to fears of writing people OOC. I might give it a shot during No. 6 week, but I'm not sure.

My other interests include Pokémon, Megaman, and Vocaloid/UTAU. I also post UTAU covers to my YouTube account.

So, uh, I guess I'll see you all around. But my forum experience indicates that I'll mostly be lurking. But always feel free to talk to me via PMs/email/tumblr/whatever.

Hello there! I'm not very good at these since there's like nothing interesting about me, but I'll try!

My name is Gen. I'm half-German, but I was born and raised in America. I currently live in Ontario, Canada though.

I recently got into the No.6 fandom and I believe my first post I ever tagged about it on tumblr was with singing scene in episode 9, and how it was super cheesy with all the background music, and that Nezumi wasn't trying out for Glee. XD as you can see, I have a rather interesting sense of humor, and it tends to put people off a lot. I'm also rather blunt and random and have a knack for losing followers because of it. My tumblr is waitformethistime, but it's a hot mess right of every fandom I've ever been a part of (keyword: a lot) and over the summer, I'll have to buy a new laptop and separate it into more blogs. However, feel free to follow at your own risk. I'm pretty sure I follow most, if not all, of you.

I've seen multiple anime, but I still have a long list. I also write fanfictions, but I update sporadically and it takes me forever to write something. Singing, acting, and voice-acting are things I would love to do at some point.

And I can't think of anything else. XD

And of course all the other new "faces" as well. (At least new in this forum. :D) Welcome!

hello everyone!
I am Amber(or Millouska on tumblr)and not very good at introductions but I'll try. I am 19(turning 20 in July, aaaaah)and live in the Netherlands. I'll start studying art therapy this fall, hopefully. I've been a fan of no.6 since the anime came out and I still love it. I love to read and draw, although I don't share a lot of my art. I am trying to find the courage to change that though and then I'll contribute to the fandom too. c:
I am a bit shy and awkward, but I am trying to get over that.. My personality type is INFP.
I speak Dutch and English fluently and a bit of a few other languages. One day I hope to travel to more countries and see the world!

Hey all you new people. If you're on the forum and feeling shy, don't be! We could use some new voices around here. Come comment on my threads. Start your own thread. Everybody be friends. I'm bored. Talk to me. XD

@Hamlet *psst* give us some art... I promise we'll like it... I can't even draw, so whatever you made is better than what I can make...

@hopeandjoy (and everyone else who is afraid of being ooc!) *psst* give us some fanfics... I promise we'll like them... a little ooc never hurt anybody... seriously though, I'll read anything. And I give nice critiques. Nice as in friendly and helpful. I hope. If you want. :3
(I bet you have good ideas. you should share them!!)
(no. 6 week is about fun. not being in character. those two things sometimes overlap but sometimes not.)

@inadequateammy (i think i spelled your username right?) what kind of museum is it? sounds like a cool job. i wish i had a summer job XD

@scorrando i think it's so cool that you want to be a software designer! i love computers, i spend most of my time on one... and i work at a computer help desk, so there's that. if i could actually code (i'm learning java next fall!!) i would totally make a no. 6 dating sim just for funsies. in which you make shion chose between nezumi, safu, and inukashi. it would be wonderful. *sighs*
yeah not that i have the spare time for that either XD
aaaaaaah where in new zealand do you live? north or south island?? i've got family on the south island!

@millena peter pan complex? I hear you. i'm there. I'm really there.
Dude. dude. your college path (minor in education, english major) sounds like exactly what I want to do. Do you mind me asking where you go to uni?
Ahhh, you're so lucky to be able to go to Broadway so often! I'm in the middle of freaking nowhere. Takes 2 hours by bus to get to Boston. I love plays and musicals (and live entertainment of any kind, really).
EIGHT. SIBBLINGS???? What is that like? Must be crazy! I've only got one, and that's bad enough. (My Dad was the youngest of five though. And I thought /he/ had it bad...)

@rege don't worry about the capitalization. I just sort of alternate between doing it right and doing it wrong. You use a lot of cute emoticons so that makes up for it. ;)
I can't sing either, but I do it anyway. Good idea? Yes, definitely. My little sister hates it. I'm thinking about rewriting some song lyrics to fit Nezushi better... again, not that I can actually sing them myself. But so what. It's good for the lungs. And the soul.

Whew, okay I've seen most of the rest of you posting around here at some point or another. If you feel neglected because I didn't reply to your post, I apologize. I'm a lazy butt. Say hi anyway!

I forgot in my original post to explain two things (which were sort of taken care of on other boards but w/e):
1. I'm not actually from France, but I used to live there, and I speak French.
2. I got into No. 6 thanks to an AMV which I have already posted about.

Last but not least, I discovered that this forum censors bad words. Try writing out "shits and giggles." You get a bunch of asterisks. I think that's hilarious.

@sshion: Ah, hello Lauren! :D Did you? I was a bit unsure. lkermgskrlhrtkhtj. I'm too shy for this /)w(\

@Vox: You could call it that, I suppose. Lol.
Ah, does it really? If so I encourage you to pursue it! Working with students is wonderful and seeing them get things in the classroom is kjswaefjrsgrjkshnrjshtd. Also being able to read and write in class is fantastic because it's what I love to do ;w; Not at all. I got to the College of Saint Elizabeth. It's an all girl's school @.@. Ah, yes. But Broadway means the city and the city means lots of people and lots of sensory stimulation and kerngserksgnrkhlnrtdlkht. It must be rough to live where you do though. I couldn't imagine being so far from everything. O.O Yeah. . .eight. It can be a little crazy. Especially when parents go through every one of your sibling's names until they get to yours. Pft. Luckily I only live with one and the rest are with my dad. But when we're all together. . .e.e I have gained an amazing amount of patience from having to deal with a lot xD.

Also, hi everyone. ;-; You all seem really nice and I really like getting to read about all of you-
