    um...curious...what are some bad things one might have done? You know, if you knew someone who might've done something. Not personally.

    I decided to use Cephalobro because I wanted it to be neutral when it came to the playable cephalopod species in Splatoon 2 with "bro" being the representation of me always playing as the male character in both cases, whether Inkling or Octoling.

    Generally I was just quite annoying, but I was 11/12 years old so there's no surprise. I was rude and bragging about my UK record on a track. Starting fights with other people. I'm 14 now so I don't do this anymore.

    I like Kirby. I like Splatoon. I just thought "what if Kirby ate an inkling?" and here I am.

    i used to use wink/winkout a lot just cuz i thought it sounded cool!
    now i usually use neoratz which i actually chose when i was 7 for my neopets account lol. it's neopets + rats bc i love rats! i went back to using it bc it's almost never taken, sounds neat to me, and i figured nobody would ever piece together that it was because of neopets

    I like tea.

    Also I'm English and tea leaf is ****ney rhyming slang for thief (even though I'm not ****ney, nor am I a thief, I just enjoy the wordplay ok? Maybe I should start making more thief characters in games though...)

    Sometimes when TeaLeaf is taken on some websites, I add a 15 on the end for the date of my birthday (cliche, I know).

    After I changed most of my account names to TeaLeaf, I changed the name of my main Overwatch account to Duality (which is supposed to be a nod to my favourite heroes as well as my dual nature as a tank and support main). In hindsight Duality is a much cooler sounding name, and if I ever get into YouTube or esports or anything like that I will probably change everything again. Some people keep their usernames since childhood, I end up changing everything every few years. Before TeaLeaf I was NightRaven, because ravens are cool.

    I was probably only supposed to talk about my current username but oooops

    Got a bit too hooked on a certain They Might Be Giants song back in 1990, and "Particle" became my college nickname. When I started DJing a few years later, I took "Particle" as a DJ name. Over 20 years later, that hasn't changed. :)

    I tend to ditch names pretty fast but Jabes has actually stuck because it's an OC's name + my real name. It's also a short version of my favourite music artist Nujabes (RIP)! There's also a much longer story to it that relates to Yoshitoshi ABe (an illustrator I admire very much)!

    I had a Splatoon sona called Neon, I made it long ago though and I would probably change it if I could.
