Icarus asks: Would I be a good vampire if they existed?
Unfortunately, I have to admit that yes, he would. Which is a shame because I hate the whole Anne-Rice dealy that has caused such a widespread annoying vampire affinity.
Why won't you tell people? is it because it's just that bad and doesn't fit and you got made fun of for it as a child? or a need to have a secret? or something else entirely that i haven't thought of?
All of the above. My summary answer is that one of the reasons I changed my name is that I didn't like the old, and since the first thing everyone asks upon hearing my name is "What's your real name?" (it's Raven Black) "What was it before you changed it?", if I were to tell every time, then there'd have been no point in changing it, as the names would probably get about equal usage. I have to admit, I do also enjoy the little mystique an unknown name affords, since I don't have any other personal secrets. Finally, also, I didn't like having to spell out my name whenever it was going to be written down, and then receiving misspelt mail regardless. Everyone can spell 'Blacke'.
