I've had this one for almost my entire internet existence...5 years now? The reasons I choose it are many...one, I wanted a unique nickname. As far as I know, no one else has this nickname. In fact, Googling it finds only one occurance that isn't mine. (I think "The Metroid Queen" would sound lame, which is why I didn't use it.) Two, Metroids are universally recognizable, and so everyone knows what they can do. (Life sucking...mmmm). Three, Queen serves two purposes. One, it is vanity. Metroids are hermaphrodites, so the Metroid Queen is essentially the most powerful Metroid. So I'm the most powerful Metroid. The second part of that is I can diguse my gender if I choose, which leads to unbridled hilarity. At an older forum which I still go to, the n00bs all call me a she. This is mostly why I get a kick out of messing with people's gender. Yeah, I'm messed up, I know.
