So I've been here and gone twice, and it appears I've never bothered to make an introduction thread. Weird.
Anyway, I'm Ryene Astraelis. Feel free to call me Ryene, as it requires less typing and is easier to spell. Those of you who know me probably know me as Kanerou, and if you are used to calling me Kan, you may continue to do that here if you want; it might confuse the others, though. I've been a member for 2.5 years total but have actually posted only a small amount of that time. The rest has been spent elsewhere or merely lurking. I'm currently giving the new forum policy a trial run. Nice to meet you.
