Well it all started 7 years ago on a website called habbo hotel. It was time for me to create a username that people would actually refer to me as and so I decided to create somthing completely different from what I had before.

As my sig says, I was obsessed with the TV show red dwarf back in 2006. One of the characters in red dwarf is called "Dave Lister". I decided to use his second name "Lister" as a username but that was already taken. After a little bit of messing around, I accidently made an account with the username "Listers." I didn't want to waste a username so I just decided to stick with it.

1 year later I discovered newgrounds. It got to the point where I wanted to create an account pretty fast. I tried my username "Listers" but that was taken so I did exactly the same thing that I did on habbo and accidently created an account with the username "aListers." For the same reason as habbo I stuck with the name and here I am today.


???-2004?=dark ages, 2005?=atomic betty era, 2006=red dwarf era, 2007-2009=newgrounds era, 2009-on= anime era.

I thought it up yesterday, still sounds cool.


I like to think of myself as a animator, but really I don't do shit.

I have a mega fuck load of accounts, they all exist for different reasons and they are named for different reasons, here's a few of them:

Con - Short for Connor, which is my first name.
Satan - I have this username because I find it ironic, considering I am an atheist.
Kawaii - I used to like anime, a lot.

Tada, there's the reasoning for my usernames, if I ever come across any more of my accounts, I'll be sure to tell you the meanings, if you wish.

I was talking to my friends in the chat and decided to change my name. I suggested SmartyPants and they all thought it was good. It was only later that I realized that was the name of Twilight Sparkle's doll. I soon forgot about it and thought the name would be perfect for when I decide to make smartass remarks. Also, I like the way it sounds

Essentially, when I was younger, I used to play these long-term games with my friends where we pretended that we were supernatural beings... only, the games became so real that it became a perceived extension of my own reality. In one such game which lasted years, I was a mutant named Zag who was born inside of the Earth when the planet was first created along with my brothers, Emberburn and Freezyala. In the year 2010, it would have been our job to defeat the personified entity of Death, which would wipe out all of mankind if we weren't able to defeat it. If we managed to do so, death on earth would be erased.

Basically, my friends and I watched way too much anime.
I guess that I still probably watch too much anime. At least now, it's somewhat productive though. It's helped to inspire much of my own literature which I hope to publish.

And that's why my username is zag on here.

It was a name I used for a comic book maker game. Now I use it in everything. It doesn't have any meaning to it as far as I know.

My username references my glasses. I don't wear expensive silver spectacles, but the name appealed to me when I came up with it years ago.
