Famous bands often have interesting stories behind what made them come up with their band names. In the same vein, I’ve seen many interesting/creative usernames on SS and was wondering what the thought process behind them were or events/movies/songs that inspired you to choose your username. Obviously suicide would be one such reason...

I’ll start: I was going through a hellish time and feeling incredibly ill with very high pain levels and would’ve done anything to escape the pain. My prescription painkillers weren’t working. So I was Googling different ctb methods and inevitably stumbled upon SS. I was desperate to join and couldn’t think clearly due to the pain, so I just chose a username that was the first word to pop into my head, which bizarrely happened to be the word “Pookie.” There was simply no thinking process behind it.

Now your turn. (Obviously don’t give away too many identifying/personal details as we all know this is a public forum.)

Yup, you succeeded in that. :pfff:

PS: Some people here get angry/offended when people make the odd joke or are funny on a morbid “slit-your-wrists” type forum like SS, but I say to hell with them! I think it’s great that some people can still maintain their sharp wit despite their depression.

I often dealt with my depression by trying to see the absurdity of life, which in turn could make me laugh at times.

We all deal with our depression differently. Some of the most depressed people are actually the funniest people. Just look at Robin Williams…

Selma Jezkova is the name of a character from a movie called "Dancer in the Dark", I don't identify with her or anything, I just really like the name and the movie, it's one of my favorites.

Why does Dancer in the Dark sound so familiar to me? I’m gonna have to Google it.

I found an “aloegarten” on YouTube but can’t be sure if it’s the one you’re referring to?
Does the music sound very chilled in general?

The piece I listened to reminds me of the type of music you can listen to while relaxing in nature and taking shrooms.

The story behind my nick is quite short, I had no idea what nick to pick, I prefered something I've never used yet.

I really liked the word "Elysium". Partially because it's the place of eternal hapiness, where people can peacefully rest, without any suffering or desires (if allowed to enter here of course)- the place where you also don't remember anything from your past.
Also because how it sounds to me. I really like this world. Might be a bit weird I think, but yeah. In my opinion it sounds kinda relaxing.

I'm searching for such a place, it seems that there's nothing what can finally release me from my suffering, as long as I'm alive. I really wanted to believe that there may be some other means to make my problems more bearable, to feel able to do something more productive than laying on my bed for the half the day, to be released/healed from my traumas which completely shattered my life (not sure if they are exact traumas for sure).
But I think as long as I'm alive, I'll never find what I'm looking for. That's why I picked nick "Searcher of Elysium" (might not be correct in english though, I'm not sure).

PS @Searcher of Elysium: I wanted to post a message on your profile wall but for some reason I can’t, it won’t let me :-(

Now it’s completely inaccessible. When I click on your profile it says “This member limits who may view their full profile” so I can’t see your profile at all. Do you have some sort of vendetta against me? If you hate me for some reason, could I ask you a huge favour - please shoot me in the back of the head execution style. Thanks in advance. :haha:

I don't watch movies at all, but if it's something worth watching, well...
Did you watch it by any chance?

It is a good movie to me.

In 2154, the rich live in Elysium, an advanced space station, while the others thrive in poverty on Earth. Max begins a journey to Elysium to change the fate of humans on Earth and restore equality.

I've been told that I am a negative person or that I drown myself in a glass of water for as long as I remember.
So my name is basically the opposite of what I am. Someone that is less negative than their current self, if that makes any sense at all.

Same here. Is it from that song Erase & Rewind by The Cardigans? (I think they’re called The Cardigans but I could be mistaken.)

You’ve got to be kidding me! You were on acid as we spoke? Hope you enjoyed your trip.

Pretty obvious that you’re a “creative.” I used to be one but life circumstances stomped me deep into the dirt.

Are you aspiring to be less negative or have you given up hope?

The character from a visual novel I read is largely referred to saber but seiba by some of the fans due to how it's said in japanese (I think that's the reason.)
