Explain your LiveJournal name and its meaning. When you're done, tag as many people as there are letters in your name.

I find this amusing because just the other day Ryu-kun was asking me about the "sakura" in my name. Now's as good a place to put it down as any. Again, probably, since I think I've already done this before but meh. Now for the remembering.

Originally, I had written a CCS fic named Mirrored Sakura. It was a stupid title for the story, especially since it involved the Mirror card and thus was a bit on the redundant side. It got deleted, no backup was saved by it, I angsted as I'd just finished it blahblahblah. It was also about that time that I wanted a different name that wasn't so blatantly... [insert word here] like oceangirl168. Of course I switched it to one that was so blatantly otaku, but I didn't care. No one had anything like it apart from the 'sakura'. No one still does. Works for me.

If you wanted to go into the more laughably symbolic, I like to copy other people's traits. I don't know why. I don't even do it consciously. But if they say something, or do a specific action, I automatically file it away and eventually I start doing/using them. I've gotten better... probably since I've become more satisfied with being me. Nothing like admitting to past/sort-of-present insecurity problems, heh. So yeah, that's what I was. I 'mirror' whatever I want from other people. Not just the good things either. I'm just weird like that.

Anyway! Tagging other people! x_X;; Well... it serves me (and you for being my friends! :O) right for having such a long name, I guess?
