I noticed the ever popular Rune Lai is a girl conversation and was amused. I seem to get that on just about every message board I visit, including the one I run at the my own web site (now that was fun ^_^).
I’ve been mistaken for a guy rather often when I’m online, which is part of the reason I’m using an Azel avatar here. If I didn’t (and didn’t announce I was female in my very first post) I fear may have been taken for a rather well-mannered male who’s a little fond of using smilies. I’m not sure how that happens. Maybe I’m just not girly enough.
I’ve encountered a number of male posters on other message boards, mainly Phantasy Star fans who’ve used the name Rune, or Rune Walsh. Associating the name with the actual character from Phantasy Star 4 is bound to happen (especially among Sega fans).
Sorry, Bluefoot. The well-mannered male part was a paraphrase from something someone else told me after arguing on my “behalf” to other people that I had to be a guy. He was rather surprised to find out he had it the wrong way around.
BTW, Neil, I figured you hadn’t made up your mind yet, but your response to Arcie was too good to avoid quoting. If I was a guy I’d probably be amused too. I’m just glad I didn’t wind up in a run off for both Fanciable Male and Fanciable Female. That would have been scary.
I am always mistaken for a male, even in gift arts, "To Atolm! Character copyright is to himself."
It is quite amusing when your fellow forum members find out you are a female. Sometimes they dont believe you either.
