So I am obviously, Lioness. Though I have gone by a few names in my thirteen to fourteen years in the RPing world. Most know me as either Vera or Dapple (Dapps) but I have also gone by Lioness *duh* and Gemini before.
I am in my late twenties and have been happily married to my husband for almost three years but we've been together for seven. We have two dogs, a full blooded Dalmatian named Mona, and a Corgi mix named Penny. I am currently an unemployed but full-time college student working on my BSW (Bachelor's Degree in Social Work). I FINALLY graduate in May and will be continuing my studies to get my MSW (Master's in Social Work). Yes, you will most likely hear terms such as social justice, empowerment, strengths perspective, and general encouraging comments (including genuine concern for everyone) quite regularly from me... no I am not faking and yes I literally am like this in RL.
A few other things about me that most definitely will come up (and I do not mind talking about) is that I have lost both of my parents. My dad died extremely unexpectedly when I was 21 (and had just started college) and my mom lost her battle with cancer almost three years ago (for anyone paying attention, yes my husband and I got married at her bedside before she passed Thank God). Hence why I have yet to get my degree in college. And why I am so excited to FINALLY be graduating. Yes, I have developed attachment issues because of these losses BUT I have friends in RL and in the rp world who are actively helping me through them.
I went to Ireland this summer for college credit and it was literally the best life-changing event in my entire life (yes even more than getting married)… why, because I finally got peace about my dad's death AND realized that yes, I can let new people into my life.
As far as roleplaying is concerned (now that I have droned on and on about me personally), I have over a decade of experience. My first sites that I ever joined were Warriors and I always seem to come back home to them. I have had multiple Warriors sites of my own, one of which lasted about eight years (under a couple different names though). I've also rped on Harry Potter sites, a few ATLA sites, a couple supernatural creatures sites, and a few all animal sites (which I just finished making one when I joined this site).
I also should probably put on here that I am rarely able to post on most weekends. I have a Marvel group (like DnD) that meets every other Sat night. And when I do not have Marvel, I spend those Saturdays with my husband, when I do not have homework anyway. Though on Sundays, we go to church (I try to anyway) and then we take my Grandpa to visit his wife right after church, which is a half-day thing typically (do not ask about why we have to do so or why they are not together unless you want me to get preachy and on my social justice/human rights/this-is-so-wrong righteous anger soap box).
Anyway, I could keep going but won't continue to bore you all!
I greatly look forward to meeting all of you and getting to know all of you better!!
