With that out of the way, hello™. I am Digital Warlock Bytemoth,
harnessing the powers of sourcerors more mighty, that I may craft this pocket
dimension of internets to call my own. I seem to be some type of human male,
and was unleashed upon western North America during the early days of
HE 11991. I am generally a fan of 80's
movies and music, 90's games and anime, and 00's web aesthetics.
I've never been officially diagnosed with any mental health disorders so I
won't claim to have any, but it honestly wouldn't surprise me if I had
something. (Or maybe that's how the morning-person hypercapitalists who
run society want me to feel.)
Why the name 'Bytemoth'? It represents a particular, peculiar fusion of digital
and analog which I've strived- nah j/k, it was what I wanted to call my future
indie game studio that I was totally going to create. I instead decided
to start using it as a handle around late 2011. It was the shortest thing
I thought of that was both hard to spell wrong, and didn't have any coherent
results on search engines at the time.
Prior to turning 18, I was an edgelord of the 'racism is over so I'm gonna
say the n-word' variety. I'm not proud of that phase, but I won't pretend it
Later on, I believed some version of the just-world hypothesis, and briefly
followed the YouTube atheist/skeptic community into
its anti-SJW phase. Tumblr users sharing
their lived experiences then contradicted the false worldview that had been
woven in my mind, until I reexamined it and opted to try being less of a
Thanks to the efforts of various
Breadtubers (and the absurdity of the 45 supporters they react to),
my stance has shifted from 'vaguely progressive' to 'non-practicing
(mentally fatigued) Millenial Socialist™'.
I am completely non-spiritual, and believe that if 'souls' exist, they are a
product of the mind, which is within the body, and equally incapable of
surviving outside of it or after death.
Depending on whatever force you'd prefer to attribute it to, my religious
beliefs fluctuate between pragmatic-agnostic (if god/s exist, it doesn't
matter), apatheism (if god/s exist, I don't give a shit), and post-theism
(it's all mythology).
A few years ago, I would have said that I believe in "a universe that doesn't
care, and people who do". Now I'm hoping the second half still rings true.
I am highly introverted and asocial, to the point of being reclusive. Being
friends with me directly is Not Easy, because I just straight up don't get
lonely, rarely initiate conversations, and suck at keeping them going. But,
put me in a group chat setting, and I'll happily chime in with whatever useful
knowledge I can contribute on a given topic.
As far as I'm aware, I've never felt that strange emotion called love, so I'm
unsure whether I'm a- (lacking attraction), an- (hostile to displays),
or quoi- romantic.
But I am certain that I'm a(n)egosexual, meaning that while I'd never want to do anything with
anyone IRL, I do get enjoyment out of Documented Experiences, especially ones
involving fictional characters. More detailed specifics are available
I am a drug-free, non-gambling, anti-smoking teetotaler out here rawdogging
reality. I used to drink a lot of soda, but decided to cut my sugar intake by
switching to flavored mineral water. There are some who would say that I'm
addicted to being online, to which I respond that I moved no fewer than 10
times before adulthood. The same WWW was available in spite of address changes
and short-term friendships, and you're 'concerned' because Newgrounds feels
more like a hometown to me than any physical location could? What did you
expect would happen?
Bytemoth is a hyperactive Dragon who is 187cm in height. They have short,
fluffy white hair and golden eyes. Their bust would fit a B cup. Their first
encounter was with a thief who they charmed for goods.
