My name is Harlequin. I'm a troubadour of sorts, a wandering bard if you will. I aspire to writing a fantasy novel to counteract the rather formulaic ones that have somehow become successful.

I have been a fan of Big-O for quite a while now, but I have seen very few episodes in the first season. I stumbled upon this website thinking that summaries of the first episodes would help me understand Act 26.

Imagine my surprise and vague delight to discover that nobody else knows what the hell is going on in the show either. ^_^

In my free time I write and draw, play with my border collie named Domo, and do a lot of video gaming. I'm very interested in improving myself and I'm currently studying to get my GED. (I am eighteen this year and have been homeschooled all my life)

Another interesting fact about me is that my family and I are moving to Russia this year. My father is a pastor and he's been called to work with the Russian people. I consider this a fantastic opportunity for story material. It's nice to meet you all.

EDIT: Oh, I've remembered more about myself. ^_^;; I run and administrate my own online forum for roleplays, so I spend most of my time doing that. I own a GameCube and a Nintendo DS; I am a staunch Nintendo fan.

Allow me to be among the first to welcome you to Paradigm City Forums, Harlequin. Indeed, you are not the only one who was baffled by Big O; a majority, if not all, of us were taken aback by the series. Ironic, I am also homeschooled. It is great to have you with us and best of luck in your endeavours. Happy

Heh. Thank you for your welcome; some boards I've been to frown upon 'I'm new' posts so it's a nice touch to see a section specifically for those topics.

Greetings, Harlequin, and welcome to our happy domes! I have a "welcome basket" from the Paradigm City Chamber of Commerce. Just don't let Colonel Dastun see the chocolates -- he has a terrible sweet tooth, you know.

Interested in fan works? Bend an ear to Player Piano, one of many interesting stories and pictures in Nightingale forum.

Smith Mansion is your source of analysis and creative guesswork about the show itself.

Ailesberry has tons of info on other anime and manga.

Speakeasy is the home of off-Big O posts and birthday wishes.

Finally, JFK Mark is the place to discuss topics about the boards. There are lively continuing threads on avatars and banners.

Hope to see you around the fora!
