What does your username mean?
"Fayanora" is a Traipahni name I came up with. It means "flirtatious." I used to flirt with my friends a lot. Not so much anymore, but the name has stuck.
How is it pronounced?
What's your origin story? Is it fannish?
I don't really understand the second question, so I'm going to ignore it.
My origin story: I was born. I had no friends in my high school, so I used the Internet. Along the way figured out I don't really feel like a human, but an alien instead. Gave myself a name in my own people's culture: Fayanora Ahnabahn Tahlahmorgk. The three names mean, respectively, "Flirtatious," "Holy person" (like a reverend or priestess), and "Lover of trees." I want to change my legal name to it, but some sites don't let you use your actual name for usernames, and since "Fayanora" is my username pretty much everywhere, I'm in a bit of a bind there. An alternative option is Fay Anne Aura Arts...
Since Ysabet mentioned nicknames, my nickname is Fay.
What is your default icon about? Does it have personal meaning? Why did you choose it? What is it from?
Currently my default icon is a little girl crying into her arms as they are holding her knees. I chose it because I'm still in mourning for my friend Lily, and haven't made a memorial icon for her yet because my image editing skills are shit.
Tell us anything else you want to share publicly that would help people know how to interact with you.
Most of that stuff is somewhere in my profile.
Despite being nonbinary, I prefer she/her/hers, because I lean more towards the female end of the gender spectrum. It would be cool if people would use the genderless djai/djair from TPNN, but I'm realistic enough to know that's not bloody likely.
Do you have a first language other than English?
No. Not unless you count Trai'pahg'nan'nog, the language of the Traipahni people. And I'm not exactly fluent in that, either, despite having a dictionary of hundreds of words from that language.
What does "fannish identity" mean to you?
I like what I like. I don't restrict myself with fannish identities. This was cross-posted from https://fayanora.dreamwidth.org/1461302.html
