OH MY GOD. I JUST FOUND THIS AND REALIZED I NEVER POSTED IT!!!! *BANGS HEAD AGAINST TABLE* I wish I hadn't removed most of our original flirting... Geez...
But that message it too far down my inbox to find... It was over a month ago...
>.> @Ennie, we shall have to do another updated one sometime.

EndarkenedRationalist is a renowned, key debater with an Elo of 3,450. One of his most viewed debates was Anyone who doesn't enjoy Frozen has no place in civilized society (Con.)
However, not only is he known for his skilled debating but also his way with words. Endarkened triggered the Fanfiction Revolution with his Once Upon A DDO.
Words flow out Endarkened like a fish through water- naturally, and he's able to string together the perfect words every episode to leave you biting your nails on the corner of your seat! In fact, he's the only debater to go through Rational_Thinker9119's My Opponent Will Not be Able to Win This Debate and attempting to follow through the rules within every single round, all the way until the end, even after Rational Thinker claimed he failed to follow the rules!
He has also won The DDOlympics Story-Telling Contest, with his epic writing abilities.
He is a very loved member and is very active on the forums, especially in mafia.

How did you find DDO and why did you join?

I found DDO when I was searching for sources to use in my own debates. I came across the site a while back...gosh. It was still orange and blue, and I ended up procrastinating by reading some debate about picking superhero/villain teams to fight each other. I remembered the site a few months back and decided to give it a shot.

Favourite part of DDO?
My favourite part of DDO was the debating originally, but now it's definitely the forums and all the great people I interact with there.

First friend on DDO?
I think my first friend was Janetsanders, but the first person I actually really started speaking to was bsh1.

Aww!
Favourite member on DDO?

Oh, I don't play favorites. I have a lot of people I like.

Fiiine. Lol.
How did you feel about your first debate? Did you win or lose?

Ah, my first debate. It was on the gold standard. http://www.debate.org......
I won. I thought it was a good debate. Not great, but certainly not awful.

Favourite debate? (not necessarily yours)
Favourite debate...probably the one between Thett3 and bsh1 regarding who would be the better husband for YYW.

Agreed.
Most memorable thing anyone has ever said to you?

Most memorable thing anyone has ever said to you: John Green, when he signed a copy of The Fault In Our Stars, inscribed it with the words "Keep writing" after I told him I wanted to be an authour.

GASPS. NO. YOU LUCKY *CENSORED BY THE DDO ToS*
Have you ever been in a debate outside of DDO? Like a really serious one?

Yes, I have been in debates outside of DDO. Those are part of the reason why I found DDO in the first place.

Your favourite troll?
My favourite troll, naturally, is Imabench.

If you could delete anyone"s account, whose would you delete?
If I could delete anyone's account...oh, I know a few users who tick me off, but I wouldn't do that to them. Free speech and all that parlava.

Aww. How sweet.
If you could change your username, what would you change it to?

I'm pretty happy with my username. It is a little long, I suppose. I might shorten it to Endark, which is what most people generally call me.

Recommendations to new users?

New users should definitely try to get involved more with the community. It's tough at first, but it's worthwhile. They shouldn't be afraid to ask questions in the forums. They should avoid the polls section. And they should at least understand the mechanics of debating before instigating challenges and realise the time commitment to avoid forfeits.

What, if you had to choose anything and you must choose something, would you trade your signed copy of TFIOS by John Green for?

$10 million

Great. -__- I'm never gonna get that. Lol.
--
Have you ever watched or read pornography?


Um....................................................................
I exercise my right to plead the 5th Amendment.

No problem... Lol... We all know what that means. *winks*
Just kidding,..
Moving on... Since you're a great writer, have you ever written a love letter to a girl (or boy?)


Naturally :-)

And to answer your question, no. I'm not really a fan of love.

Really? *eyebrows raised*
Me either. I actually got into a large "discussion" about it with a member.
--
How certain are you of your sexual orientation?
(I am like 82%... XD... JK)


RM? I knew it! To the fanfics!

(JK, don't worry).

I'm actually not all that positive. I'm pretty sure I'm either homoromantic or homosexual, but even that's not definite. After all, like Kinsey said, sexuality is a spectrum.


*raises eyebrows* You better not.
Nope actually... It's a very prominent member... I told him I didn't believe in soul mates or that "one true love" crap and he had it out at me... I swallow my pride in saying I didn't respond too intelligently XD


Noted.

If you could choose one person on DDO to marry, who would it be?

Ooh. Now that's a tough question. There are some great people out there, but I think I'd be happier single. :-)

*excited face*
*jumps up and down*
CATLADY BUDDY!!! Well... cat-dude??!!
Errm... never mind...
--
What is your most embarrassing memory?


You know, surprisingly, I don't really do embarrassing things. I mean, sure, I've walked into the wrong classroom and spent several minutes just sitting there and I've shared a drink with my ex-boyfriend at a movie theatre, but really, I'm the cold-hearted logical one who watches the embarrassing things happen to those around him.

Okay. ^.^
Do you lie often?

*evil laugh*

No, actually, although I make a distinction between partial truths and outright lies.
*raises eyebrows*

*raises eyebrows*
Smart alec. Lol.

Hottest guy on DDO
EndarkenedRationalist

LOL. Modesty is a favourable trait. ;-D

Well, I've only seen a handful of guys on DDO, so my opinion's hardly that credible...but I'd have to say Zaradi. *blushes, hides*

If we expand it to everyone on DDO, regardless of whether I've physically seen them or not, then I'd have to say *censored by the DDO Elite*

And you guys made fun of me for initially saying so.. tsk tsk tsk..
Would you rather be a porn star or broke for your entire life?


I never did.

And between those, a porn star. I mean, I'd still be getting money, and it's my life. My career. It's also not permanent, as being broke for my entire life would be.

What superhero would you be if you could be one?
Batman. Though being evil is far more entertaining. >:-)

Ooooh! I <3 Batman as well. (I like Hulk a lot too!)
---
If you were a girl for a day, what would you do?
(*crosses fingers that you don't give me lannan's answer*)


Now I'm curious about Lannan's answer.

I'd probably remake this video. http://m.youtube.com......

Are you more hipster or gothic?

I'm more gothic, though I don't identify with either.

I asked because I'm both.
--
Favourite song of the day?

Favourite song of the day may or may not be Let it Go....
I go through favourite songs fairly regularly. In a month or so, it'll be something else entirely.

AWW!!! *swoons*
Favourite colour?
Purple

Good choice..
Favourite romance novel?


Definitely Twilight. 100% percent. A better romance was never written. Perfection in every way.

Really? I trust your judgement. I never liked the movie much but I'll check the book out now that you've given it the thumbs up...

Hottest girl on DDO.
(guesses Jonbonbon)


I hope your response was as sarcastic as mine, Esocial.

You? *winky face*

Jonbonbon is the only other one I've seen - assuming her picture is indeed her anyway.

... 0.0 Oh... I thought you were joking but wasn't sure...
Haha. You flatter me.
---
Final question:
If you never found DDO, what would you see yourself doing right now?


If I'd never found DDO...wow. I wouldn't be able to construct my arguments as logically. Sure, I've taken classes, but practice makes improvement. I wouldn't have known mafia as anything more complex than a circle of kids with one doctor, one cop, one mafia member, and a bunch of civilians. I would never have gotten the idea (from Imabench) for Once Upon a DDO.

Although, based on how much time I spend checking DDO, I could be more productive and use that time to actually get employed by someplace that pays fairly. So that's a possibility. I'd also start working on my fourth novel.

And I'd have never met such wonderful people, of course, though that goes without saying.
And we wouldn't be gifted with such an amazing writer. :P


Aww, you flatter me. :-)
