Thanx DoS. You got eve's forwarded mail from me? I like Once Upon A Time
It's a secret no one tells
One day it's heaven one day it's hell
And it's no fairytale take it from me
That's the way it's supposed to be

You will fly and you will crawl
God knows even angels fall
No such thing as you lost it all
God knows even angels fall

Hi name game - I would suggest something fairly simple and easy to remember, and something that you wouldn't be embarrassed to be known by in public. LOL You want people to be able to remember you (your name), to able to spell it easily, and to fit it into short spaces if necessary. Other than, that, pick something that appeals to you and don't worry about anyone else.

I like Myth and Mountain Moon.  Or Eternal Sunshine.  That seems to fit pretty well.

*waves* I like

Silent Screams

Solitary Reaper

Eternal Sleep

Midnight minus the oil.

And in the air the fireflies
Our only light in paradise
We'll show the world they were wrong
And teach them all to sing along

IMO Story Teller, Once Upon a Time and Nobody's Girl are the nicest ones. But I'm a traditionalist, the other names are too... Don't know - peculiar? Of course, for my taste only.

Or maybe call yourself Name Game? It original and funny, knowing how you were looking for an appropriate... name?

Yah I could. When slaymesoftly called me that I considered it. Thank you all for your help. I've decided on Nobody's Girl. Actually I couldn't decide between Name Gane and Nobody's Girl so I asked my litttle sis and she liked the latter. I think I'll use Once Upon A time for my lj because I just love it but it's too big to type everytime I want to log in or someone wants to address me. --- Name Game

Story Teller makes me think of Andrew... I liked Silent Screams or Tisca, but Name Game's cool beans
