Hello there! J'yu St'yne here, or Justin if you prefer the whole 'real-life' thing.
I grew up in Las Vegas, but moved to San Mateo, CA in 2012 to start a career in the video game industry. I'm also an amateur photographer who hasn't updated his website in far, far too long. You can find me on Twitter here, or just about anywhere else on the 'net by searching for j00zt1n.
I've been playing FFXIV for a couple years now, and have somehow -- though I still have a hard time believing it -- accrued over 2,000 hours of playtime. I main BLM and AST, but I used to semi-main WAR and WHM in the 2.x days as well. I haven't gotten them to 60 as of the time I'm writing this, but I plan to soon!
I'm also an avid crafter, having all DoH jobs at 60 (Miner and Botanist, too). Let me know if you need me to make you anything!
I work 10-6 M-F (Pacific time), but you'll usually find me online outside of those times. I'm interested in tomestone grinding, crafting, EX primals... and if I'm feeling particularly feisty, end-game raid progression.
See you online!

I suppose I should drop an introduction as well, eh? Hello and good afternoon! I'm Memega Mega, but feel free to just call me Mega. Or Chris, I happen to respond to as well.
Most folks know me as Megaket, which is from whence I derived "Memega", after understanding the naming scheme of the lalafell. I live in Sweden, and have for the entirety of my life. I have a fairly adequate understanding of the english language however, so there shan't be any problem in terms of communications. I'm somewhere between twenty and thirty years old as of right now, I believe. I lost track some time ago, as it hasn't ever been particularly important to me. I'm the easy-going type, and I am always calm (pretty sure dead folks are far more lively than me at times), and hardly ever do cause a ruckus. I enjoy the world at my own pace, and take in everything around me before I act. Thankfully I do take the situation in rather fast, so I will rarely slack off on dungeons. I'm always willing to lend an ear to those who but need one that do listen, and offer my insight, if you would have it.
Being a scholar by trade in-game, I stick to healing and a fair amount of DPS depending on the flow of the battle. Generally sticking to the healer class, I try my best at keeping folks healthy and well before I focus on the enemy. Slow and steady wins the race, as they say. From time to time I may be seen as a DPS class, and rarely (if ever) may I be running a tanking class, but I am far from confident in my tanking ability, as compared to survivability in the healing trade.
I will try to be active to my best extent, but I can't promise that I'll be on extremely often; I have friends on other servers as well, and do enjoy to hang out with them from time to time. The subscription model too can be a hinder, which can result in breaks extending to half a year to a year, but I'll make sure to give a heads-up should such a time occur.
Thank you for reading thus far, and I look forward to getting to know many if not all of you, in time.

I GUESS I should finally put an introduction.... :D
I'm Shalindra! And yes, I know, I've been around for a bit now, but I'm just now getting around it.... real life... game life... stuff... y'all know how it is!
I'm.. me. I don't know what else to put... I'm an enigma, wrapped inside a question, surrounded by a puzzle... I don't even know what me is going to be around most of the time. No matter which me is around, I'll always help, in anyway that I can, no matter what... and even if I can't help, I'll try to.
I tend to be very hard on myself and blame myself for a lot of things, so if you see me doing that, smack me upside the head! :P ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
And... once I can figure out how to put a picture here without it being a link... I'll do that! ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
My true self: I was genetically born male. I'm physically male. I have a condition known (back in the old days) as Multiple Personality Disorder, also known as (in these new days) Dissociative Identity Disorder. There are 5... their names aren't important, however, the effect on me is. 3 of those 5 are female, 1 is NB, and lastly 1 that is male. (shrugs). I guess that really isn't important. What is important is that, and I think I said it last night, we are who we are in game, with no fear, with no apprehension of who/what we truly are. In game... I'm female, because, mainly because, let's face it, the world doesn't have enough female knights in shining armor (even though I've mostly abandoned the PLD ways in favor of WHM). In real life, I look in the mirror and see the genetic male, and know that it's not me, not who I truly am. I am NB/A, but I use he and she interchangeably most of the time, and I'm not a fan of being called "it".

Now that I finally figured out how to access this website.....(yea it took me about 2 months to notice the apply button...), I guess I should put an intro to me guide here.
I am Zelissa and I am... weird(understatement at times) as most of you have already figured out by now. Go along with my weirdness or attempt to flee in terror it makes no difference to me, i'm dragging you along for the ride if you're my target for the day.
In-game I can be who I truly am without fear so congratulations you know the true unfiltered me ^_^ I am Z and Z is me. I am an adorably sassy slightly perverted Miqo'te and completely unapologetic about it. I'm always happy to help with whatever you may need so please don't be afraid to ask, I don't bite(often).
In real life, I am the proud parent to 2 boys and 1 girl. My lovely quirky personality is made up from several disorders which I will list and explain at the end of my post for clarity. Being a transwoman I do feel the need to touch on pronouns. I will respond to you regardless, but I do prefer my proper pronouns of she/her are used. However, don't be afraid about that when talking to me. I may correct you, but will not hold it against you ^_^.
I have been gaming my whole life and read like a madman(800 pages, meh that's a couple hours work). My favorite game series is (you guessed it) Final Fantasy. So yea I can get emotional to all the nods FFXIV makes to the past games in the series.(I actually cried at the end of the Ghost Train boss).
I have been diagnosed with the following to make the wonderful mess that is me:
Pure O (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder minus the physical compulsions, my mysophobia can trigger some physical compulsions though it's rare).
Severe social anxiety(if I am alone I can handle about 3 people at a time before a panic attack, this number increases when I am with people I trust). I have also been known to mirror personalities if I am forced to be with someone I am uncomfortable with for long periods.
Mild Mysophobia(AKA germaphobia). I can't eat/drink food prepared by others or if I made it and someone else touched it, if someone uses a personal item of mine it gets boiled/disinfected before I will use it again, or thrown away if it can't be. As for handwashing/cleaning behavior tied to this, only when I come into direct contact with someone that is sick.
Mild Haphephobia(fear of being touched) I think this is tied to the mysophobia.
Before anyone asks, nothing traumatic caused my issues. I'm just that special I guess ^_^. Aside from all that, if you want to know something ask and I shall answer.
Hello everyone! I figured I'd break the ice in our introductions and give a chance for a lot of people who don't really know me, a chance to actually know me.
Name: I go by a lot of names for a variety of reasons. However, Sebastian (and all variations of), Vincent and Gunny are the ones 99% of the people I know refer to me as.
About me: Ever since I was little I was always big into gaming. My Dad introduced me to it back when I was only 3 or 4. We had a NES, as well as a family computer he had bought to play the latest release from one of my favorite series, Command and Conquer Tiberian Sun.
Over the years I eventually got introduced through MMOs via my cousin. He recently started playing a small little browser based MMO called Runescape. RS was my first foray into MMOs and still the game I go back to 14 years later. From there I branched out into Guild Wars 1, Lord of the Rings Online, Star Wars Galaxies/The Old Republic, Akia Online, Runes of Magic and countless others that I'd spend the entire discord character limit going over them.
In early 2013, after going through countless different private servers, I ended up joining in Retail WoW with a long time best friend. WoW was the game that transformed my love of MMOs and was the first time I ever took a serious approach to high end PVE. Out of the 5 1/2 years I played 4 of them were spent raiding with my guild *Winter is Coming*. Yes, they were massive GoT fans. While we never raided Mythic at a very high level due to logistics issues, we effortlessly cleared through Heroic and remained in the top 10 guilds of our little server. Unfortunately before BFA, the guild disbanded due to a lot of bad drama and clique issues.
Outside of MMOs, I enjoy RPGs, RTS, and FPS respectively. With RPGS in particular being a favorite of mine due to my love of roleplaying. I've always been in the scene but I really sunk my fingers into it when spent most of my high school years bouncing between forum RP, San Andreas MP mod, RP within RS and even back on Myspace. While I am not active within the scene as I once was, it's still something I come back to once in awhile. Mainly because I enjoy creative writing and I am a terrible author with the worst case of writer's block.
Speaking of writing, I enjoy creating short stories of random ideas I have as outlets for what little creativity I have. While 99.9% of them have never entered the wild, it's still a little something I like to do for myself.
I've also been in about every position imaginable when it comes to communities. There have been countless small groups I have made with friends and allies meet online, I've been in an officer/administrative role just as long and acted as the head of support teams in a few bigger communities I had joined up in. I had originally joined Azure with the intention of never moving on past Member as I had thought I was done with community management. I'm sure you can see how strong my resolve in that aspect was. Not because of pressure but more that Azure has felt like a second home to me and I felt guilty just existing as a silent name in a roster.
Outside of gaming, history is another passion. With most of the 20th century being my favorite times to study about. With the rise, fall, revival, and forced underground history of the Italian American Mob being my current passion research, partially due to some distant familial connections. Model building is something I've been wanting to get into for years but only recently started to make the preparations to get serious about. Mainly due to fact I never had the space to work with and display finished products.
Currently I work for one of the biggest hospitals in my area with the eventual hope that once things go back to normal I can return to college and finish out my degree, in order to become a Medical Lab Technician.
