:wave: Hi! I am an extremely long-time lurker. When I became interested in LEGO at age nine, I'm pretty sure this was the first fan-site I visited.
Now, I'm going on fifteen and just now finally signed up! This is an extremly friendly site, so I figured that that I better join in on the fun. I kept putting it off again,again,and again, but now I'm a proud member of Classic-castle. I don't have an extremely large collection, only a little over a $K, but I will probably spend an estimated $700 next year. Castle and Pirates are tied as my favorite themes, with Indiana Jones being my second favorite, and of course,Space, is my third. My favorite on-line builders are Aliencat and Anthony Sava. :eyebrows:

I have a deep love of Tolkien, who inspired me to make up my own fantasy universe! I've written a seventy page novel, I have several projects in the works that I would love to show to everyone! :) I also have a book of illustrations for the novel, about twenty maps, thirty full-color drawings of different troop types, a full color-hand-drawn mural called "Charge of the Crownies," and a huge history book. Needless to say, Sava had a huge influence on me also!

Besides LEGO, one of my favorite hobbies is the Total War game series. I love movies also, with my top three being: LOTR, Star Wars, and Waterloo. Look at my name.hehe. My favorite Castle theme is without a doubt Black Falcons. Sadly I don't own a single one. :cry: When I moved a few years back, my Mom threw away a box of my older brother's toys. I later learned that box probably held my brothers old LEGO COLLECTION! :mad: But any way, HI! Yes, I'm kinda long winded, please forgive me.

Hi, welcome to CC.

I'd like to point out that your sig is a bit wrong- for one thing, you're hardly the first person to say "Put off today what you can do tomorrow". Secondly, Edward Bulwer-Lytton said "The pen is mightier than the sword", not Napolean.

But hello nonetheless. ;)
...and that's how Equestria was made!

Thank you for all being so kind to me! I worried a little when I saw how long it was, so sorry. :oops: Man, I can't believe I didn't see Aliencat's joke coming! :lol: I mean to be a long-time member here, and I will try to contribute to the community as much as possible. See you around! Oh, and I'll fix my sig, I just thought I read in one of my schoolbooks that Napoleon said that. :oops: The other one by me is just a joke. :spin:
