scary Albedo fans


My, my, my. How well this little community has blossomed since auddwaggin and I thought ourselves the only Albedo fans on the internet. I remember the day...

Well. That's immaterial now. What's important is I know less than a quarter of you, and most of that quarter is all people I've had on my friendslist for a long, long time.

So, if you will humor my poor memory, why don't you introduce yourselves? I'd love to know more about every single one of you.

You already know in spades who I am. But I feel like making my dramatic entrance anyway!

I be tha' chain-smokin' lager-chuggin' zombie-fetish horrible-authoritarian-nationalist-monster snarky future dictator of the unquestioning public known affectionately to mortal men and women as Audd.

nurrrrr, how that's for ego?

I'm Brian, and I quite obviously love Albedo. I'd like to bake him in a cake and eat him .. or something. That's how much I love him! I even named my journal after him! Well, in a roundabout fashion, since Albedo was probably taken already. I don't like Gaignun or any of the other U.R.T.V.'s nearly as much as Al, so my LJ is in honor of him. And my Myspace. And my AIM. And -- you get the idea. =)

Albedo's one of the main reasons I got Xenosaga II. Xenogears is probably my favorite game ever, so I felt a duty to get Xenosaga. I don't like Saga nearly as much as XG, though. But I felt a duty to get Xenosaga II, too, because of how much I loved Albedo in Episode I.

I'm a video game player and anime-lover by trade, and I masquerade as a college student a few hours every week. Or somethin' like that. ¬¬;

I also like RP MUDs and long walks on the beach (but not really). Yeah, I ramble, too.

I'm yukie1013, aka Yukieshorts, Yukiepants, and other such trouserish suffixes.

I like Albedo because Psi and Murky and to a lesser extent Ayuuuuu totally gave me URTV cooties. He's alluring, gordammit.

Um, hello. I go by Natsumi online, or just Nat. Playing XSII pretty much kick started my Albedo fangirling and it only got worse when I finally got around to playing the first game. Not quite sure why I latched onto him as my favorite character, but it probably had something to do with him laughing maniacally and flopping around on occasion :>.

'allo 'allo. Obviously love Albedo and his twistedness... plus Cripsin Freeman is awesome... um... yeah. I keep saying I'm going to draw some art to post in these Xeno communities I'm a part of (this and Rubedo's, Xenosaga), but I'm too lazy. So mainly I just post comments randomly because all you people crack me up when you do post something ^^

I'm gonna stop now before I ramble for the rest of the night.

So. I've never posted in here, NOR I have ever made my presence known.:D NOW'S THE TIME TO DO IT, I SAY. :D

My name's Dannette, I heart Xenosaga and such. BUT I ALSO HEART MANY other RPGS and ... Bleach. I love Bleach. Yes. :D And of course, Albedo. But THAT'S more in a sick and twisted way. Like.. in the way I like to picture my glorious death in theatre by falling from the grid and landing in a broken heap and coughing up rather large amounts of blood an-.. Yes, I do believe I've gone quite far enough.

I'm a theatre major in college and.. and I'm random and odd and quirky. Yes. Quirky. :D THAT'S ABOUT ME IN A NUTSHELL thankforreading. :D

My name is Katie and I have a thing for white haired guys. I also happen to like purple eyes and some psychoness. One of my friends got me into the game and I love Albedo's voice in the American release game. Crispin Freeman is great. I have yet to play the second one, and I need to watch the anime.

As soon as I can, I'm going to get the second game and play it as obsessively as possible. I love that there's a community for Albedo as my friends think I'm weird for liking him so much.

I love anime, video games, and music. Oh and swords. I have quite the ego and a need to be in control all the time. So, in other words, I'm slightly off my rocker.

Heyla~ I'm Kagetsuya. Sometimes K. (Or is it the other way around...? Hm.) Aaaand... I'm a professional stalker lurker in communities. I love all the URTVs, Albedo for his... little... quirks. :) I'd write fic or do arts, but school is killing me and I haven't even touched a copy of XSII. :/ Ah, well... Maybe vacation...

*adds the spam count*

Hi, I'm Maiki. I have never played Xenogears, only played the Japanese version of the Xenosaga games and was a chaos fangirl but Ep 2 converted me into a Jr. fangirl. Albedo freaked the hell out of me in Ep 1 but I end up falling for him in Ep 2 because of his damn cute young self.

I pair up Albedo and Jr., and generally love the URTVs and Yuriev. I even got a Japanese to draw my fave pairing as a kiriban pic! :D I draw fanarts but I couldn't draw that many Xenosaga fanarts back when I was playing it because of school. Planning to draw more Xeno fanarts once Ep 3 is out. If Albedo dies again in Ep 3, I'm going to cry. I already cried at the end of Ep 2, I don't think I can handle the grief again. =_=;

Eeer. Nice to meet you.

..... OH WAIT I've talked to you before! I think. Nice to meet you again. :D;;

Re: *adds the spam count*

Yuriev creeps me out, though I definitely admire him on the grounds of ruthless, scientific amorality in pursuit of a goal.

Welcome. :)

Hi, I'm Mercury (or Murky). Some days I feel like the first Albedo fan on the internet, which is untrue by a long shot. I just--as of yesterday--turned twenty-one, the last hurdle to full legality barring my twenty-fourth birthday, when I can legally rent a vehicle.

I got into liking the white-haired bastard because someone once-upon-a-time thought that I might do a good job RPing him. What a terrible mistake they made, one that ended up getting me alienated from an RP community and apparently losing the (completely negotiable, ever-shifting) "respect" of the person who invited me in the first place.

The October, two years ago, when I first embarked on my endeavor to learn about Albedo and subsequently Xenosaga in its confusing, mired, and gorgeous entirity, was the month that devestating fires swept through most of San Diego. I spent three days, Sunday to Wednesday, living under an ever-present pall of orange-tinted smoke with ash raining from the sky.

The next February I was diagnosed with moderate to severe depression on my own recognizance. Needless to say, this provided unusual fuel for the fire of that little thing we call "obsession".

I have gone through the squealing, shallow fangirl phase once or twice or maybe even three times and come back out the other side. I find Albedo sexually attractive on the basis of his looks and voice alone. I do not find sexually attractive the fact that in all probability he would, on meeting me, snap my neck like a twig and use my corpse to decorate his throne room. Ergo, I try not to drool too much.

I will admit to seeing a part of myself in the character and vice-versa. It is a(n amusing) fact that I am an Enneagram Type 2 ("Helper") and have been since, oh, around the time I went through puberty. My Security and Stress types are 4 ("Romantic, Epicurean") and 8 ("Protector, Asserter") respectively. Imagine my smirking surprise on finding out that the ODM for Xenosaga lists Albedo as a type 8. Needless to say, when I get upset, I take on many of the more unpleasant qualities of the ordinarily noble Protector. Consequently, RPing and/or writing Albedo provides a vent for urges that I would normally exact on my unsuspecting and often innocent friends.

It also provides an aid against depression to have a self-adopted "muse" whose philosophy of life is, in my own words, "never doubt, never fear, never falter". There's a lot to endorse in that style of living.

I am probably one of the few people who finds herself increasingly frustrated at the oversexualization of the character--and, further, does not either a) ignore his bad behavior or b) revel in just how bad he can be.

I don't think he's a pedophile. I don't think he has any incestuous Electra complexes. Sometimes a murderer is just a murderer, and desperate love doesn't have to have a sexual connotation.

I think I'm done writing now.

As an aside, I also emerged from the cocoon of being a passive-aggressive crybaby and grew into the lovely Luna moth of spite and bitter amusement you see today. Funny how things work out.

Hi's (Hi plural). I'm the resident snarky nutjob; I think I'm witty but I'm probably not. My gaming goal is to poke Wilhelm. :D Am also known to fight with masanori over Jr. Pleased to meet you.

'Lo, I'm Burg. I have to admit, I completly despised Albedo upon completing Xenosaga I. It wasn't till I played episode II that I had a change of heart. Now I just wubble him to death. *is shot*

Hee. Well, in that case, the game designers did their job perfectly. ;) He's not supposed to be an intrinsically likeable character on first blink.

'Lo! Love your LJ username. :D

I'm Jewel Song, and I obviously love Albedo because he's sexy, amazing and alluring in a sadistic sort of way. I love almost all RPGs (i.e. Final Fantasy, Xenosaga, Star Ocean, etc.) plus the good 'ole Zelda series.

I'm an anime fangirl, except without the constant 'squeeing' and rabid yaoi crazy-ness. My favorite anime/manga at the moment is Naruto by Masashi Kishimoto, and my favorite character from that series is Haruno Sakura. I created an LJ community (nejisaku) for one of my favorite pairings, and am the mod at a Sakura Fan Community (sakura_chyan).

I also love Harry Potter with a passion and can't wait for the fourth movie to come out.

Hmm... what else? Oh, I'm a total, TOTAL music junkie, and love just about any type of music. (Not country so much, and rap in small, SMALL doses) I also have a writing journal (audible_hush) that I never occasionally update.

Feel free to friend my regular journal (this one), though it's friends only. I love to ramble and gush and give the occasional emo post, but I'm pretty sane, if I do say so myself...

I'm looking forward to getting to know the rest of you!


P.S. Oh, I'm also a firm believer that the White Testement is Albedo. If he isn't, I will off myself. Or just be depressed/angry for a long, long time. ;_;

I think theeternalmind's icon says it the best, on the WT-Albedo issue:

:) Awesome to see another Narufan around here, too. I'm mostly attracted to the relatively "obscure" characters--Hinata and Iruka, mostly, though people think (for some reason) I'd like Gaara a lot...might be the Albedo fandom there. Really, I'm more taken with Kankurou of the three Sand-sibs.
