I'm kinda tired of the "Fireshrike" name. It's not very interesting, even though I thought it sounded cool when I came up with it. I originally had a different name in mind back before I had a dA, when having a dA account was an aspiration (on the first social website I was on, having a dA made you cool), that not only sounds a lot cooler but actually holds meaning. My Tumblr buddies will be familiar with it, and some of my long-time friends might recognize the names - "Akita-Covethunder".
Explanation: 5 years ago, back in the good 'ol year of 2010, I had a crazy Warriors fancomic on the official forums. It was called Guardian of the Clans, and had to be one of the most unbelievable comics in existence and was almost completely unrelated to the actual thing it was supposedly a fancomic of. Seriously, the Warriors world served as a basic building block, nothing more. There were elemental dragons and kitties in space. By the end of the comic the forest had been set on fire, a massive hole had been ripped through the ground to reveal an underground city, and there was a dead 300-foot-long dragon or two lying about. It was amazing.
Anyways, Covethunder was a normal WindClan cat who turned out to be not-so-normal. In fact, he was an incredibly powerful character whose arrival had been awaited for centuries. But of course he was not too happy about it, considering that in order to find out he had to fall into a deep cave system completely unknown to the normal kitties, become culture-shocked by the incredible underground city he woke up into, and be greeted by winged cats standing on their hind legs and animals that he never even knew existed. Akita was his clone - the dark forces that hated the people of the city wanted their own version of Covethunder, who would fight as their leader...while secretly being under their control.
Even though that comic's long dead I still
find myself really in love with it?
like the name Akita-Covethunder. It sounds great and has a lot of personal meaning to it.
I just want to know what you guys would think if I changed my screenname to Akita-Covethunder. I doubt I'd actually regret it but I'm having a hard time convincing myself of that.
Can you tell I'm still really in love with the story?? I just didn't know how to finish it, since there was one massive plot hole that I could never figure out how to fill, and I thought I would end up never seeing it all the way through (which I think was actually untrue, since whenever I think about it I still get really excited. Honestly it was a great story, for all its unbelievability....).
