Hi there.

I have come to the attention that this is the place for me to put my own information. Very well.

I shall tabulate my information, rather than intertwining it between paragraphs and paragraphs of information, which will probably make it a lot easier to go through.

Basic Information

Christian! (Yes, I find that appropriate here. In fact, I find that very fact more important than the subjacent one - you don't need to know me, you need to know my Father.)

Names: Gideon Willem

Surname: Potgieter

Birth date: 1996-08-20 (that's the 20th of August, by the way)

Nationality: South African


Length: 1.88m (which is about 6"2')

Weight: 873N (I'm just kidding - mass: 89kg / 196 lbs)

Hair colour: dark brown

Eye colour: blue / yellow (if you take into account that I do have iridial heterochromia)

Physique: Is there actually a way to measure this? I do have a Dutch word to describe my physique, though: 'gezet'... that's probably an overstatement as well.)

Skin colour: white (this sounds very wrong, even for a South African.)

Likes and Dislikes (a fairly extensive list of seemingly irrelevant and respectively unrelated topics, questioned in the least eloquent way possible... ie. the personality list)

Cat/dog person: a dog person, absolutely.

Vinyl or cd: vinyl.

Favourite colour: orange.

Thing I like the most (1 word): dog.

Thing I hate the most (1 word): Satan. (No kidding!)

Superpower: Shape shifting.

Favourite books: Bible, Narnia, Harry Potter.

Favourite artists (music): Evanescence, Linkin Park, Led Zeppelin, Nickelback, Queen, Metallica, Hope for the Dying, As I Lay Dying, Demon Hunter, Children of Bodom, Three Days Grace, Daft Punk, Hot Chip, Jimi Hendrix, Dire Straits, Mozart, Bach, Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, Haydn, Chopin, Händel, Vivaldi, Lizst (a random selection; I'm not going to enumerate them all.)

Favourite movies: I Am Legend, Lion King, Now You See Me.

Artistic style: Expressionism (or surrealism.)


I will not format this part into a bullet-list style. I can start off by saying that I am a homosexual, which says more about me than I honestly care for. I have an unhealthy obsession over dogs, the word 'bear', the colour orange and a man called Alan. This combined motivated me to write a (up until now) 300-page novel about a man I barely know, and last saw about one year ago.

So much for my bio (since that is really boring!)

Please, contact me if you have any interest in beta-reading my book called 'The Five Maxims of Karate.' I understand that its target group is narrowed down to a very specific one, and that's why I need all the help I can get. If you are interested, I will send you the chapters (instead of you having to read them on this site with the horrible formatting!) I have a glossary and character list as well.

There is no clear description for this. The whole poem is consequently ambiguous, as are the addressee and the speaker.
