For some reason I was expecting a wild backstory.

It was from my constructed language— I took two random words and put them together.

ooh, got any pages on it? I'd love to see a write-up (and probably so would the other nerds on /f/glossopoeia), even if it's just a draft.

At the time I picked my username and joined the site, I was beginning to realize and give myself some credit for the positive role I play in the anarchist community IRL. While I am often working in the background, and receiving credit for my labor does not come naturally, I have had my hand in a number of different projects to the point of being a unique and essential member of those efforts. It was a sort of affirmation of this new realization, calling myself celebratedrecluse.

Just the first thing I thought of. My username on reddit is zoochotic and I like that better, but whatever.

"Zoochosis is a word used to explain the stereotypical behavior of animals in captivity. The stereotypic behavior is described as an invariant, repetitive behavior pattern with no apparent goal or function. Animals in zoos and other forms of captivity suffer from stress and depression and display unusual behaviors"

Tequila_Wolf wrote

Needed a username, thought of the name of a place I'd heard on One Piece, went with it. People seem to like it, which I'm kinda surprised about!

Everyone loves tequila, wolves and one piece.

I try my hardest to remain as irreverent as humanly possible when it comes to ideas. I think "Iconoclast" was taken, so I just added "some" to it.

I let my brain go off in a random direction and it kind of popped out on its own.

I picked a random letter to start with then just wrote something, wanted it to be sufficiently different from any other pseudonyms I've used

I'm a witch and I have affinity for The Fool in tarot.

Also, I'm a fool.

This was my first handle on bbses back in the early 90s. I always try to get it when I join a new service. It's rarely available. Most bloodroses you encounter are not me. I used to use this all the time in IRC. I first realized the internet was getting big when a friend told me he said hi to a bloodrose on IRC but it wasn't me.

I came up with the handle as a weird teenager based on some odd recurring dreams I had about death and blood (imagery of roses drenched in the blood of the dead). I'm not that peculiar anymore, I think. Or I at least don't have that dream anymore. But I still like the handle. It feels like my name.

I lost the password to my previous account. My previous username was based on the fact that I don't like the police very much.
