Your Profile/Adopted Character Info
Name and nickname: Magrat Garlick – because I am a bit like her, rather bookish and love to see the pretty side of life and have weird hair
Joined the forum on: Thursday 19th
Favorite posting place on the Forum: Everywhere but possibly going to be Your Writings thread
Why did you choose that name/character?: She's my favourite
What made you register on this forum?: I wanted to talk to fellow Pratchett fans and found it whilst Googling Terry Pratchett.

Tell us your ‘what if’s’
If you could be anyone/thing in one of the novels who/what would you be?: Sergeant Angua despite her taste in men
If you lived in Ankh-Morpork which trade/guild would you want to join?: Guild of Assasins
If you could go on a date with a character who would it be?: Sam Vimes (sorry Carrot) or even Rincewind
If you were deputising for Death, whose soul would you most like to take – and why? Hmm, tough one as I hate to be nasty but --- well, Adolf Hitler, he deserved it, as did his cronies and anyone else that is as despotic. In the Pratchett verse, possibly Vetinari just to see the effect that would have!

That was well worth waiting for Ingvild! :wink: I think your daily activity of cuddling and looking after your son sounds wonderful :D

Ah Magrat! :shock: *Groans at yet another Welsh member* - kidding of course! (and at least you're female) :wink: I think your haircut piccy makes you look a little like Enya (and I do like her so that's definitely a compliment :D )

Wow, I am :oops: thank you for saying that, I think Enya is a beautiful woman so I take that as the highest of compliments ... the only other person you could have said to make me happy was Liv Tyler or Michelle Ryan.

A few add ons that I forgot to put on. I also love Helena Bonham-Carter, Richard E Grant, Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet, and because and only because he made me laugh in two of his films, Bruce Willis. I just like most British acting!

And favourite director (a missed option!) :shock: Tim Burton, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and the guy that did Van Helsing can't think of his name but I do like him, and the Late Anthony Minghella, and Brett Ratner (Rush Hour trilogy!)

And another character I'd like to date is: Constable Visit-The-Infedil-With- Explanatory-Pamphlets. Again not going to divulge why but I feel sorry for him.

Oh and I am not Welsh, I was born in England Luton Beds. I grew up in Forest of Dean and LOVED it there, I didn't want to move.

:D It's a running joke on here about the number of members who live in Wales (beginning with Tony and Chris :P ) but South Wales is certainly well represented! :lol:

Come to think of it the forum's got a fair few active people living in Devon & Cornwall... :oops:
Actually that's quite scary as there's a Prince Charles connection building there - the Principality... the Duchy... :shock:

Except for the beard you look very like someone else I know from another forum Alex - do you have an identical twin in Denmark who's grown a goatee by any chance? :lol:

Although in self-defence, I'm not trying to grow a beard, it just seems to have a certain razor-dodging ability :lol:

The aforementioned survey. :wink:

Jan Van Quirm wrote:Twurp’s Peerage ~ Forum Peeps Bio-pics section

We have one of these on another forum I’m on and they can be quite funny and revealing… :shock:

We have many ways of getting to know each other - but this one’s for those who have a deep-seated need to tell the world exactly how wonderful they are – and for the nosey parkers who want in-depth and unexpurgated vital stats… :twisted:

Where possible feel free to post some piccies (or ask Tonyblack or Jason nicely and they’ll do it for you ’cos they’re good like that) with the info you put up (although if you’re under 13 (gods I wish I was!) I think there’s some restriction on putting pictures of yourself on the web
So if you are under 13 just do the writing bits and leave the mugshots off.

How it works
1. Copy and paste the following survey into your post and just go through answering whichever questions you want to (delete the ones you don’t want to answer as you like). If you’re fussy on presentation feel free to add pretty colours or highlighting too – see if I care!
2. Post a picture(s) of you if you like. A recent one would be great, but you don’t have to have any – we’ll just assume that they’re really bad or exposes you to some form of blackmail…
3. Feel free to add any other things that you think we should know or make up some more questions if you want (will add those onto this template as we go if they’re interesting!)
