This one was based off of a book I read in middle school (Born to Rock), where the main character's bio dad has the stage name King Maggot. I didn't really like the "king" title (still don't), so I used prince instead, and this username was born! I used to alternate between adding the "s" or not (particularly on sites where princemaggot was taken for whatever reason) but these days I usually put the s.

My other usual one, as linked in my site name - hellspit - was originally my character's username, based off the band angelspit, but then I stole it for my site so I'd have a different name than my usuals <3

Truth be told i made this username up on the spot one day after being tired of an older username I had when I was like, 14 or 15 that felt rather cringe using. Was on a Johnny Cash binge at the time, one of my favorite songs I listened to at the time was Solitary Man. Also really loved gaming. So kinda ended up becoming 'TheSolitaryGamer' lol

This ones kind of an easy one.
I have went through many usernames over the years, even one username I have been using since I turned 18 as a change of pace.

But Anonicus, Well this was actually because I wanted Anonymity. Believe it or not but I was quite known on the web in general and proceeded to even appear in a few youtube videos and mainly I was someone that was part of a quite large community of people on certain social medias. But because I wanted a fresh start (And only bringing people I can trust around me), I wanted to bring back more of my anonymity to the public. So, I became Anonicus.

Was I a good or bad person prior? Well, That depends on how you view me as I did had plenty of people telling me how good of a person I am, and then I also had people who downright hated me. I'm not too sure to say.

Mine is a pretty funny situation. Most people think that my name is associated with "Nippon", but it is not the case. :cheerR:

This was before Super Mario Odyssey was coming out, and so they were releasing promotional material for the game. One of these was an image of Mario shirtless, and the internet decided to highlight his nipples, saying "omg mario is confirmed to have nipples" like any human being would.

So I decided it would be funny to make an Instagram account (when I used it at the time, lol) under the name marios_nipples. I made some friends on the account and someone decided to call me "Nippo" and so it stuck, since it sounded cute.

It is funny when people poke fun at my username and call me "nipple" when it is actually the origin behind the name to begin with. 8)

One of my favorite songs is "Yume No Tsubasa" from the Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle Anime OST. It always feels relevant to me, or at least it has for 14 years now.
The lyrics talk about the passage of time, about fading memories and believing in our old dreams. Haha, even now it still doesn't fail to make me tear up when listening to it...

"Yume No Tsubasa" directly translates to "Wings Of Dreams" - and even though I tend to dream quite a lot and naturally remember my dreams very well, I felt that WingsOfImagination would make a better fit as a username since I feel that my imagination is more of a core aspect of my personality.

It also makes a nice expression, because I truly believe that our imagination is like our own set of magical wings, allowing us to break free from the harsh shackles of reality, going on to infinity because really nowhere is far enough for the human spirit; which in turn makes reality itself sort of magical and limitless, because if this world allows such things to exist in the form of our thoughts and feelings, surely in a way it is part of the reality we live in? From the very depths of our fears, to the most heavenly glow, they are all here...

I'm sort of........ in between usernames at the moment........ but my current one is a play on the phrase "sacrebleu" in French and means "sacred/holy kisses".

A previous username (that I ended up abandoning because I was trying to escape my previous online life) had a reference to angels in it and I wanted that to carry over, because I'm still obsessed with theology. I just wanted it to be a little less on-the-nose because I used to be an angelkin and it very clearly reflected that. I was also beginning to fall back in love with the rest of the world so I was feeling very lovey-dovey when I came up with it..... "Bisous" are those little cheek kisses you give in greeting, so I was trying to invoke the image of being touched by an angel in passing.

I also considered that sacrebleu was sort of a profane term, so it kinda has a double meaning? But that's a bit too many linguistic layers deep.

Name it after monster movies, they always  a Creature Feature, I figure If m gonna make a website about creatures both real or not might as well be.

Althought the biggest running joke is that people keep asking me if I picked the name from the band, dont get me wrong I think they┬┤re kinda cool, but just  like the band chnaces we probably both gtook  inspiration from horror movies :D

   My username on many sites has been applesauceAlcohol or something similar for a few years now. I originally made it such because of an incident wherein a large jar of applesauce in my fridge had been fermenting due to being simply left in there for so long. I had found it amusing at the time, and so I chose to dub myself as such. It simply stuck since then, lol.
   My website is marxiemarcie, both a simple play on my name, Marcette (I know putting my name on the internet is not always smart, but I chose that name because I like to use it), and also a play on Karl Marx. Also, something something X-Treme aesthetic uses of the letter x. It's just cool!!!!!
