(It's a friending meme too.)

Normal community rules apply - in general, be nice, guys. Post your replies in the comments.

How did you find Kytri’s comics?: I was reading the TV Tropes page for Team Fortress 2 and came across Cuanta Vida. And now I'm here!
Who is your favorite character and why?: James. He's so cute and he reminds me a lot of myself. Also, Liam, because he is a bamf.
If you play TF2, what is your Steam name/Xbox Live gamertag?: Itaria pantsu is my Steam name. I don't have an Xbox.
What other fandoms are you into?:
- ANIME/MANGA: Axis Powers Hetalia and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya are my main two.
- TELEVISION: The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, House MD, Doctor Who and Star Trek: The Original Series. I'm also getting into Glee.
- VIDEO GAMES: Team Fortress 2, Portal, and Ace Attorney are big for me. I'm also dipping my toes into the Left 4 Dead fandom.
- MUSIC: AFI, Keane, Dave Matthews Band and Franz Ferdinand
- MOVIES: I mostly watch superhero movies, Disney movies and sci-fi. I'm a huge Star Wars dork and I like the 2009 Star Trek movie a lot too. Outside of those genres, my favorite movie is Stranger Than Fiction.
- COMICS: Watchmen, The Sandman, The Dark Knight Returns. I also have a soft spot for anything Captain America/Iron Man.
- BOOKS: Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Ender's Game :]
Anything else?:

Age: 19
Location: Bellingham, WA
How did you find Kytri’s comics?:
Completely by accident. I was browsing around I think DeviantArt and I stumbled across a fanart for the comic that had a link. A hour later and I was hooked.
Who is your favorite character and why?:
I love Bleu. He's just so adorably awkward and cute and I desperately want to give the guy a hug for all his trouble. But Liam and Gabriel will forever be my OTP. Their love knew no boundaries, and it broke my heart to see their relationship come to an end.
If you play TF2, what is your Steam name/Xbox Live gamertag?: I believe I go by ScrapperInBlack on Steam, but my Live tag is spiderxombie. However, I don't own an XBox, I signed up for Live at a friend's house so we could play Halo online. I play TF2 PC.
What other fandoms are you into?:
FullMetal Alchemist (I haven't seen the whole series, but I've read a good chunk of the manga)
I'll watch pretty much anything, just benefit of the doubt, but I rarely actually approve of any of the anime that is out today. Too much soap opera drama, not enough robots and shit blowing up.

I haven't watched TV in about 5 years, and I don't particularly like anything on television today. I used to watch Saturday Morning cartoons like Pinky and the Brain, Ozzy and Drix, Static Shock, The Batman. I watched the first season of the Spectacular Spider-Man and actually liked it.
But, in truth, the only TV I actually go out of my way to follow is British. I love Doctor Who, and I watched the entirety of Torchwood and a good chunk of the Sarah Jane Adventures. Ten/Rose, Jack/Ianto FOREVER.

Now you're talking!
Halo, Team Fortress 2, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, BioShock, the good stuff. I haven't actually played anything but Halo 3 multi-player and TF2 PC, but I've watched others play and desperately want to get the games.

I'm pretty open. I listen to everything from folk songs to heavy metal. The only genres I don't care for are mainstream country and rap. I really don't want to listen to some jackass putting down women or whining about how his dog died. Seriously, find something new to sing about.
My favorites, though, are Apocaplyptica, Rammstein, Panic! At The Disco, P!nk, Ludo, and occasionally My Chemical Romance.

James Cameron's Avatar, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, The League of Extra-Ordinary Gentlemen, Spider-Man (1 and 2, 3 sucked ass), Amelie, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles...
I could go on.

I don't often get the opportunity to go out and buy comics, I mostly read whatever happens to pop up at the local library. I like Hellboy, Spider-Man, Transformers, I own the Watchmen graphic novel, and I recently read Creature Tech.

*deep breath* Skulduggery Pleasant, Atlantis Found, Fall of Reach, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Hobbit, The Woman Who Loved Reindeer, Artemis Fowl, Wild Magic, The Chronicles of Narnia, Eragon, The Captain's Dog, InkHeart...
Do I need to continue listing? I have three bookcases worth of awesome.

Anything else?:
I'll give anything a chance, but I generally enjoy sci-fi fantasy and adventure, though I do occasionally cave and go for some sappy romance. Is that it? I hope so, my fingers are getting tired from typing.


Sky12309 - known as Jenn or JennPulse on the Forums back on SkyScraper.


This is the Internet - if I told you my age, you'd think you'd beleive me? I could be a guy for all you know. (If you're gonna believe me however, I am not.)


New England - pretty close to where Scouts come from, actually.

How did you find Kytri’s comics?:

Can't even remember. I was probably looking at some TF2 fanart on Deviant Art and either found the comic pages themselves, or someone referencing Cuanta Vida, which led me to the site and... here I am!

Who is your favorite character and why?:

Oh, I have to choose? Well, Jordi and both of the Scoots for sure - since you sort of have to like the main character to some extent, right? Also I just love Scouts; maybe because annoying people are endearing to me.

If you play TF2, what is your Steam name/Xbox Live gamertag?:

Actually I have a 360 and I bought the Orange Box, but that was more for Portal than anything else. Unfortunately, I need to get X-Box Live, so no gamer tags to hand out yet. Sorry!

What other fandoms are you into?:

Red vs Blue (Seeing a theme with colors here?) I ADORE RvB and as mentioned before, Portal. I fall in and love with fandoms all the time, but RvB has stayed with me he longest, and VALVe is pretty awesome, so they're included in my fandom love, too.


I liked Gravitation, moved away from this stuff, though.


Don't watch it.


I heart VALVe, right?


This ranges from things off the TYop 40's list from the 90's up to now, as well as total obscurity. And Jonathan Coulton.


I love Zombieland, most of the Robert Downey Jr. and Will Smith movies, too. (Who else liked Sherlcok Holmes?)


Again, nothing really.


Once more with the zombies: I really liked Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and its prequel, Dawn of the Dreadfuls.

Anything else?:

I like to keep a theme here:

Who is your favorite character and why?: It's a tie between everybody.
If you play TF2, what is your Steam name/Xbox Live gamertag?: I don't feel comfortable with giving out my steam to random people. Feel free to PM me on the forums. I'm Momowoo.

How did you find Kytri’s comics?: Digging though tvtropes.

Name/Username: YashaHikari
Age: 18
Location: New Jersey
How did you find Kytri’s comics?: seatalia posted a link to Cuanta Vida somewhere on Facebook and it ended up on my news feed. I clicked it... and the rest is history.
Who is your favorite character and why?: While there are many close seconds, I have to say Gabry. I want to squish him. Also Anton, because I want to make him small and keep him in my pocket. /moegasm
If you play TF2, what is your Steam name/Xbox Live gamertag?: I haven't gotten around to playing TF2, unfortunately. :[
What other fandoms are you into?:
- ANIME/MANGA: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Fullmetal Alchemist, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Death Note, and Code Geass, along with quite a few others, but those are the most prominent.
- TELEVISION: The Office and a few "reality competition" shows (namely So You Think You Can Dance).
- VIDEO GAMES: Various Final Fantasy installments, Silent Hill series, Team Fortress 2, Ace Attorney series, Pokemon, Jak and Daxter series, Kingdom Hearts series, The World Ends With You, Atelier Iris... I'm probably forgetting some, but oh well.
- MUSIC: Lady Gaga is the only specific musical artist that I'm a diehard fan of, but I consider myself a music appreciator. I enjoy anything from classical to hard rock. However, as a rule, I'm not fond of rap.
- MOVIES: Christopher Nolan's Batman movie series, Battle Royale, and Repo! The Genetic Opera. It takes a lot for a movie to impress me.
- COMICS: I dabble in some of Batman, but that's about it.
- BOOKS: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya series and Battle Royale, mainly. There are also a horde of books I read in high school that I love to death, though I wouldn't consider myself part of their "fandom".
Anything else?: First, excuse me if I'm incredibly slow with anything; I'm very new to LJ so I'm still learning. Plus my off-line life suddenly decided to go insane, so I haven't been on as much as I'd like to be. Hopefully that will be remedied soon, but I can't promise. Second... eh, I don't know. I'm really tired and my creativity is dwindling, so I'll just skip this. Haha.

Location: Depending on the time of year: Toronto, Canada (Summer) Glasgow, Scotland (rest of the year) and occasionaly Oslo, Norway for brief weeks, but not a lot of people will see me there unless they attend particular academic conferences.

How did you find Kytri’s comics?: Other friends/fans askin' me if I've read CV.

Who is your favorite character and why?: Jordi. All that crazy hair is a blast to draw, plus his perpetual inability to take a level in badass is endearing.

If you play TF2, what is your Steam name/Xbox Live gamertag?: We'll discuss this when I get my new computer...

What other fandoms are you into?:
- ANIME/MANGA: Yu-Gi-Oh, Prince of Tennis, Utena...probably more, but recently I don't really have an 'Anime Fandom'

- VIDEO GAMES: Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, TWEWY, Castlevania...and I used to be an avid Counterstrike and Rockman(X) player...many moons ago.

- COMICS: Been awhile since I've sunk my nose into a comic book that isn't the online variety.
- BOOKS: We'd be here all day. I'm a Lit PhD. Suffice to say that I have a LOT of books I enjoy. However the most recent thing I've read - and enjoyed - is the first two books of the Inkheart Trilogy.
Anything else?: Wit fails me today. But happy belated Canada Day and Happy 4th of July.
