Ho! Obviously, I'm TheTranskinator, but you could also call me transky if you wanted. I got the name because of my last name...

Anyways I'm a fan of all of the Enderverse, having read all the books out so far, many of them multiple times. Ender's Game has to be in the twenties, Speaker has to have been at least eight, and Ender's Shadow has to be around ten. The others are close to five...

Anyways OSC is my favorite author, and I do read a lot. I love the game of basketball, and just finished my first varisty season in high school. I'm a junior too. So yeah... Nice to be here.

Hey, Transky! (I almost called you Tranny...which isn't a bad thing but it does carry with it a certain social stigma that isn't all that positive). Welcome to Pweb. :)

Congrats on a successful (you finished, right?) first season on Varsity. What position do you play? Guard, forward, center?

Welcome! Stick around and if you haven't read OSC's other non-Ender books, I would recommend checking them out. Some of them are really good.

Yeah, I'm not a Tranny lol. My dad is asian, and his last name happens to be Tran. :P

And thanks for the greetings and congratulations. I play pointguard, being only 5'9. Do you play too? And I really haven't read any of his non-Ender books. Alvin Maker didn't really sound too appealing to me, and I didn't have a lot of time to read recently because of basketball...

Welcome, Transky. Just out of curiosity, how'd you make your way to Pweb? Google? The acknowledgments of one of the Shadow books? Hatrack?

(There's a move planned later this year, so I'm just generally interested in how our newer members are finding Pweb.)

After we move we should make posts everywhere about the move so people who find this website find the new one easily. I personally found this through one of the books.

Nah, just a spectator but it's a fun game to watch. :)

I found it by googling something about the Ender's Game movie... I can't really remember what though. But yeah, it was through google. And I didn't know it was in the books? Thats really cool if it is!
