Rules: Tag 8 people that you want to get to know better!
Name: Jess, or Jessica. But my username is just fine! (for those who don't grasp subtlety well, it means I prefer you use Mika/MikaLero unless we are close friends. :-D )
Star Sign: Sun in Leo, Moon in Cancer, with Scorpio rising.
Average hours of sleep: All together or the average uninterrupted span? 8 to 9 hours all together on a good night, usually broken into two (sometimes three) chunks of 3 to 4 hours each.
Lucky Number: 4 or multiples thereof.
Last thing I Googled: How to link a fellow Deviant's name and icon on Deviantart.
When I started this account: Many, many moons ago young Padawan. I start quantifying, I realized what a dinosaur I am and then I get sad.
Amount of watchers:
What do I post: Fiction mostly, but screencaps are the runner up.
Do I run any more blogs: Nothing is active right at the moment (as I don't count Facebook as a blog) but I have a personal Tumblr, as well as an RP tumblr for my Warden Cousland.
Do I get a lot of comments: No, not really. At my most active, my core small group of friends often commented because I'd usually been harassing them with BETA and critique requests beforehand. long reply chains happened sometimes. New commenters and comments make my day.
Why I chose my username: It was my first internet handle/pseudonym and unless I have an account themed for a specific fandom, the name stuck. But I got the name Mika from an episode of DS9 when Dukat becomes a crazy cult leader. :-D I thought it was pretty.
Hiya! I'm Jess. Jessica or Mika work fine too - just please don't ever call me "Jessie". Nothing wrong with the name, it's just a boy's name to my ear.

So I was a Biology Major, am usually a Vet Technician by trade, though In-Home Elder Care is my current "gig". I'm also a HUUUUUUGE fantasy/gaming/reading/history/lore nut.
I'm the kind of geek that reads the Silmarillion for ***** and giggles. Game of Thrones? *BLEEP* YES! Hunger Games are cool too, though I'm a much bigger fan of the movies -- *runs away and hides under the table* Please don't throw rocks at me. --
Now, prior to the last couple years, my gaming habits were usually confined to the Sid Meier, Pharaoh-type city builders on PC, or CLASSIC FINAL FANTASY MUDDA******!!!
Then Final Fantasy made it's first MMO. I eventually converted to World of Warcraft via South Park. Every once in a while I feel tempted to try and go dig up my authenticator fob and see if my Shadow Priest is still hanging out - then I remember that Panda People suck.
I have always loved the story-heavy RPGs on Playstation. (Microsoft is saaataaaaan...) From the eye-poking polygonal edges of Legend of Legaia, to the hair-rippingly difficult and cumbersome Draken II, through the adventures of Urath Reborn and his girl, Lahara in the Summoner series... If it was skull-crushingly lore-heavy, I ate it up.
Only downside was that once the main quest was done - it was all over. No real replay value on any of them.
Then, in August of 2013... I stumbled across a series of animated parody shorts on Youtube by a guy named seanzoz I had found ... Skyrim.
Holy. Sweet. Cracker. Jacks. BATMAN!
And, it's the FIFTH ONE? Oblivion came next (WHY MARTIN, WHY?!?!?! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIII?!!! *tears) , quickly followed by the hunt for and purchase of a prehistoric brick x-box so I could tackle Morrowind. Whiiiich I haven't ever really been able to dent because I was quickly reminded why I never had an Xbox. I mean, seriously, did someone from Microsoft and Bethesda team up to go rifling through the trash over at Nintendo to grab combat engines and paddle designs from the N64? Geez. Worst Exclusive Deal EVER.
Elder Scrolls Lore? I can't get enough. I just can't. It's too big. I want to know all the things! I'm like Hermaeus Mora... except... you know... no tentacles. Ew.
