Old fan, new to the site

Post by TeganGibby on Mon Apr 15, 2013 4:51 pm

Name: Tegan
Age: 19
Gender: Female (MtF trans, actually)
Location: Michigan-ish (I'm sure Google will give you more precise info, but I'll limit it in this post)

Thought I would fill out this basic form (copy+paste from Lyoko Freak) for formality, but now you get to actually hear about me. I am 19 and a freshman at a local conservative Christian College, majoring in Computer Science and Japanese. Video games are a huge passion of mine; I have a collection around 500-600 strong (just physical games mind you; around 1000 with digital games counted). Code Lyoko has always been something I have loved ever since I first saw it all those years ago, but I have always been disturbed by the lack of fan-created content for this show when compared with others.

I recently ordered the first season DVD (the new release, not the old 3 disc) off of Amazon, and I plan to order all of the French DVDs at some point in the future so I can own the original version of the show (also, their packaging is better than ours). I want to start some sort of weekly stream in which we watch through all of Code Lyoko from beginning to end - I have interest on Reddit and will be posting a topic here about it shortly.

I am currently messing around with Unity and debating whether or not to use it to make an open world Lyoko-based game to actually do the franchise justice instead of churning out shovelware to make a quick profit.

I am also a part of the Brony community and quite a few different random subreddits (on Reddit, of course). I am most active on Reddit; seek me out there if you need me quickly.

Let me know if you have questions below.

EDIT: Also, doing a stream of Code Lyoko with the Reddit community 4 episodes per week if anyone wants to rewatch the series with a group; see my topic in "Multimedia Projects" for more info. Putting it here for visibility.

Thanks - it took me way too long to find a semi-active Lyoko community. Glad to see I succeeded!

Argh, Cya, you messed up the question!

Oddlita under our evil overlord Atlas or Jerlita under the good Queen Vena?
JerYumi gets its own question.
Edit: Ohmigod, Atlas. Not abusing your admin powers at all are you. Evil or Very Mad I'm taking back that compliment that was really just butt kissing!


We like shipping probably just a little bit too much here. Razz

I'm Snickie and I'm one of the mods here. If you have any questions feel free to ask me or any of the other mods and admins. Smile

Why hello there Very Happy I'm Kay, another little mod that's sadly stuck on the small island of Britain away from you Americans and your timezones -.- I draw, write and I'm a huge anime fan.

There's definitely a lot to do around here with both Code Lyoko related discussions and otherwise and as Snickie said, if you want some help feel free to ask Razz

Jeremie x Aelita has always seemed a bit weird to me, like it isn't borne out of actual interest in each other and rather is because they are each others' only viable options for the entire first season.

Haven't thought too much about the other ships, strangely...usually shipping is something I more actively think about. I will get back to you on that then.

EDIT: Also, doing a stream of Code Lyoko with the Reddit community 4 episodes per week if anyone wants to rewatch the series with a group; see my topic in "Multimedia Projects" for more info. Putting it here for visibility.

Welcome to the forum, Tegan! I'm assuming you want to be called that, anyway. Razz (some people have all sorts of nicknames here--some that really don't make sense until you learn the meaning behind them, lmao). I'm Kelly. Welcome to the forum!

We seem to have more than a few Michiganers here--Rena, John, Quin, and Suna, as far as I know. And that's just off the top of my head. There's an episode discussion section for both discussing CLE episodes (if you've been keeping up with them) and the older episodes. We also like shipping here, but I promise you, we're all civil about it. Smile (and for reference if you ever find yourself lurking around the characters section--if Atlas is posting about relationships in CL, there's a fairly large chance that he's trolling)

Hmm, is there is a large Reddit community for CL? I don't really hang around Reddit, so I wouldn't know, but it's interesting how spread out the English community is. In any case, glad to have you and hope to see you around!

There isn't an enormous Reddit community - about 400 subscribers to the subreddit, but not everyone is active.

Hey there Tegan, welcome aboard! I'm Soul, and I'm one of the admins here. Post around, make yourself at home, and I'll hopefully see you around!

I avoid Reddit like the plague for various reasons, but it'd be great to have a regular livestream, so that's super awesome. I'll catch some viewings if I can! In the meantime, please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. :]

Not to go off topic here, but where are these people and why have I never met them before in real life? Michigan meetup needs to happen because other than my fiancee, no one I know has even heard of Code Lyoko.

*peeks head out* Hey I'm okay Cya. Think of it as "supersmoke" without the "super" part. *disappears again*

*cough*I may be extremely slap-happy at the moment so you may see some of my weirder side coming out. Hey, at least you'll know what you're in for Tegan!
