I named myself after the famous anthropologist in @Lanko 's short stories, but then switched it to Duckly Barewood since @xiagan is basically a shaman and determined that my spirit animal is Darkwing Duck while smoking peyote in a tent and moderating the forum from his phone
Not Duckly Breadgood? Anyway, since peyote doesn't grow where I live, I have to make do with sleep deprivation. The hallucinations may not as good, though...

Mine was from a video game... it is the first time I ever used it though. My nickname everywhere else is 'Reala', which was the name of a character from a video game... hmm... not very creative. lol.

S. and K. are abbreviations from my first and last names, and Inkslinger is just pretty much a random word I'd found while browing online dictionaries that really caught my attention, hahah.
