Better Known as: Alfenide.
May Also be Known as:
• I, Reformed Sucker.
• "You're Named After Cutlery?"
• Walking, Talking, Three-Men-of-Different-Nationalities-Walk-Into-a-Bar Joke.
Eeek. You've found me.
So, to all those lovely folk who happened to somehow neglect to notice on the way in, the name is Alfenide. Or Alfénide. Of course, I wasn't really named after an alloy of nickel and silver electroplated with silver, but we all need catchy internet signatures. This one is mine. To those who really do care, the name is Barnabas. It is a pleasure.
I'm a college student, currently, studying A Level Economics, Law, English and Math&Sat. As a direct result of this, dear readers, updates can happen either frequently or rarely depending on my current workload; they're as unpredictable as speculative business trends.
My Favorite Movies? Far too many to name, if it's terrible, underrated or has Clive Owen in it, I'm likely to enjoy it. Star Wars and Star Trek, though. I was raised on those. And crappy Avengers cartoons.
My Favorite Books? A mish-mash of various titles I've managed somehow to collect over the years. I'm a big fan of the DCI Banks series, Terry Pratchett, various Sherlock Holmes stories, Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne books, as well as Robert Low's the Wolf Sea. LotR, too, is somewhere lurking among the volumes. I also read and collect Marvel comic books.
My Favorite Video Games? I haven't played console since the original Xbox -- I use PC, it being far better in my completely biased opinion. I'm a big fan of all the Deus Ex games (Accept the Fall. The Fall doesn't count. Don't count the Fall) Mass Effect is also a game I enjoy. The Elder Scrolls Series; Morrowind was my first Xbox game -- it has a special place in my heart, as does the Fallout series -- one, two and NV the most. Half-Life. I bought Team Fortress 2 before it was Free to Play, with the Orange box. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell. I own them all. And Metro. I can't forget Metro. Star Wars KOTOR, btw.
My Favorite Music? God knows. Put something on the radio and I'm likely to like it.
My Favorite TV Series? THE KNICK. House of Cards, Mock the Week, Sherlock, Elementary, 24, Luther, Homeland, House M.D, the Newsroom, Father Ted, Lie to Me, Peep Show, Miranda, Live at the Apollo, Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter, Star Trek aaaaaaand Battlestar Galactica.
That's about it.

I am naturally more active on Fictionpress; if you have an account too, feel free to drop me a PM. I give general advice when I can spare the time.
That goes for here too, I guess. Cheers!
