Right, I'm going to try this again.

Yes, I've already introduced myself. But I lied. Alice Silence isn't real. Never has been. She is an alias that I've been using for almost a year. Why did I start using her? I honestly have no idea. Escapism, boredom...it's not important.

While it was acceptable to be Alice in other places on the internet, being Alice here has, as we've seen, caused quite a few problems. Today, I was reading over the letter Indja sent me, and then went on the SB and caused offence to sarah, and I thought to myself 'what the hell am I doing? Why don't I just be me this time?'

I've been pretending to be Alice for so long that I didn't even think about the choice involved when I registered here; I just became Alice again. But it isn't fair, to be this person that upsets everyone here, and it isn't fair to deceive everyone either. I have, quite disgustingly, abused your trust, and I am deeply sorry. This is not a forum of pretence, it is a forum of humanity.

So yes, I am that old, internet cliché: the guy who pretends to be a girl online. My name is Fergus Bovey-Hull, and I am a 20 year-old student of Drama and Scriptwriting at Northumbria University. I was born in Oxford, and grew up there. I used to work as an admin assistant for the City Assertive Outreach and Rehabilitation Team. A lot of me went into Alice, and a lot of Alice has filtered into Fergus, but I have never had even the beginning of her array of psychiatric disorders.

I should like to begin again here. I like the community (you're all Dolls fans, how could you go wrong), and have a lot of free time. I didn't mean to insult or upset anyone; Alice is a personal creation, just like a character in a play. Stupidly, I became that character and didn't let go of her when I should have.

I'll shut up at this point and let the lynching commence...

It made me think at the begining but I was like... maybe in first class countries they can do it.

Hello thar. I'm not one for introduction threads but what the hey.

I'm Rebecca, I'm from New Zealand, I'm 17 (turning 18 a whole 5 days before AP plays NZ which makes me incredibly happy), I'm shy and I have self esteem issues. I totally fucked up my last year at school so I don't really know what I'm doing now, I wish I was more artsy and I don't consider myself unique at all. (Although I am left handed). Plus I spend a ridiculous amount of time on the net.

to Alyss.... I just assumed you were an attention seeking 15year old......
fair enough..... Wyatt has been known to produce highly contreversial alternate personas on this forum, mainly because he wanted to see how people reacted.....this has managed to seriously upset a couple of Shadowboxers and created a lot of friction..... people tend to be quite trusting of one another on here and it is much more than a simple band forum.....
your apology is not good enough

I wasn't going to respond to this, but I had to say this. You have no idea how many people you offended with the things you said, including me. And now saying that the whole thing is made up, it makes me sick. You don't go throwing around a fake life story, being a fake person. If you want to be someone else, fine. Don't do it this way. You said things that went way too far. You offended me, you offended my friends. I won't forgive that. Good that you're saying it now that the whole thing is a fake, but for me... it's too late. Next time, use your brains buddy. Think before you do these things to people that have feelings.
