hopefully there's not a thread about this already.

well this thread is to talk about your avatar such as whats the story behind it? why did you choose it? why do you like it? and most importantly what is your avatar?

about mine- this is a picture of me and i choose it because i wanted people to have an idea of what i look like and also i like that picture of me :)

now about yours:)

There isn't any "story" behind it!

why did you choose it?

I chose it because it displays a cute little kitten! :)

why do you like it?

Because I love animals, especially cute little kittens! :)

and most importantly what is your avatar?

Usually my avatar is about the undefeatable Blue-Haired Android KOS-MOS from the Xenosaga Trilogy. But this time I broke tradition and opted for the inventress Lucca Ashtear from Chrono Trigger. She reminds me of Prue from Charmed and I thought this picture of her was so adorable. Her smile here makes me giggle because it is so random. Unfortunately I don't know if she is alive or not. -_- Time pardoxes are a fickle thing.

Mine represents my cultural background. I have the colours of the Greek flag behind Lara. In my past avatars, I've always had the Greek flag in the background, each with a different render of Lara. And of course, that's my name in the bottom right corner.

What do you guys think of this as my next avatar?

http://i39.************/swba7d.jpg

I think that you should go back to what was (I think) your second avatar. The black and white photo of Cher, where she had big hair and she was slightly hunched over. That was truly memorable. :)

I've not changed it since I joined the forum :)

I admire you for that. I don't plan to ever change mine. I think it gives you identity, and if you change it every 28 days, it ruins your identity.

Just my opinion.

yeah,youre right.although this is not my first avatar (3rd if i am correct),but i don't change then on the 28th day.atleast keep em for 2 months.

as for mine-it's from my favourite game 'Runaway'.just the latest fancy new screen we got from the 3rd part :D i dunno why but i am starting to think for a change,which is most probably going to be after saaaaay......a month :D i know i sound weird.i'm ill!you can't blame me :ton:

[Random rambling[/]

I looked at my previous avatar and it reminded of the scene from Chosen, so I decided to go for a change. Plus I love Buffy's attitude in it. She's just been stabbed and the Potentials are being killed by the Turok Han. She's about to give up and then The First taunts her, and that's when she says "I want you... to get out of my face." It's everything what the show was about. I really think that there should have been a flashback of previous seasons in that scene... especially the scene from Becoming when Angelus tries to kill her and she grabs the sword. That look is just... wow.

I like this thread, by the way :) not every avatar needs explaining, but it's nice to learn about other avatars whose content or context isn't straight-forward.. Fortunately for my laziness, I don't think I have to explain myself :p and luckily I'm too lazy to even consider changing my avatar, but some of the other posts in this thread are gonna seem very strange when people start changing avatars :)

They both died really young, at the age of 27, and i'm fascinated by tragic people, particularly women.

Well, I like to avoid wars between Core Design and Crystal Dynamics.. I simply love them both. Core's classics got me started, while Crystal's reinnovations still keep me attracted to Tomb Raider.. so 'Core Dynamics' is my CD. :hug:

Plus the 'Matt' part is the old Core Design logo's style and the 'TR' is the Crystal Dynamics logo. :tmb:

One day I was watching a music channel and at one point in a music video there were a few girls holding up a sign which read "WE <3 A.A.F.", which caught me off guard as my user-name on here is Alive_and_Funky. A couple of seconds later I realised that the initials actually stood for "Alient Ant Farm", since the music channel was playing their cover of Smooth Criminal (originally by Michael Jackson). Even so, since that day (and that was probably around a year and four months ago) I have wanted that image as my avatar, although it was only a few weeks ago that I decided to use it. I can see myself having this avvy for quite a while. :D

Mine is just Spy vs Spy.

The signature has triple meaning to me though.

1. It explains the different nature of the the black and white spies, good and evil, ying and yang - yet they have the same blood color.
2. It's about how racism in the world is unnecessary since we are all the same inside.
2. Indirectly it speaks the ruthless intent of the spies to kill each other, where they both would bleed red blood.

It's me...When I was bored stiff, my friend wanted to take some photos.

I need to update it though either with something I like or me again, cause I look quite different now.

It's a cover of Avenged Sevenfold's album. I like this band.

I don't really know how to explain it. I took the color out because I'm not supposed to be here right now. It supposed to have a lifeless look.

But the original one was Lara against a red background, should explain the situation that she's in in the new game.

How everything wants to attack.

My current avatar is from Lost, season 1, episode "Deus Ex Machina", Locke's vision. It's one of my favorite episodes, and I also chose it because Boone's death was a tremendous shifting point in the series, one of my favorite moments (I still cry when I rewatch it).

Possibly my favorite avatar on TRF, still! :D
