Representing cynicism at it's best, joining in in the late summer of 2008. She is actually a 'she' (despite rule #1 of the internet:There are No Girls on the internet. Also, she can really work a 1920s flapper dress, according to Wanderlust.), but she's a massive tomboy and fits right in as just one of the guys.
The choice of name, othyrsyde itself, and it's odd spelling have a number of theories: 1) She has stated that an affection for the Red Hot Chilli Peppers song “Otherside” could possibly have to do with it or 2) Maybe has something to do with the “otherside of history, or such nonsense…no one knows…as for why she spelled it with Ys instead Is and Es, is also a mystery (the most popular rumor has to do with she assumed “otherside” spelled with proper vowels was already taken; the other rumor is she just doesn't speak English that well. Then there's the defaming malicious rumor, that othyrsyde just did it for attention whoring.).
And aside from being one of the few chicks on AH, she is also one of the few of the 'dark folks', being a Mo'exica'rican.
She has started a few TLs, that are unfinished, and with no idea if they will be continued; with the exception of her main TL, The Time of Crows, about a nasty plague striking in the 1770s (representing othyrsyde's cynical view and low opinion of the human species). As well as popping up in discussions, particularly in “Before 1900” and “Future History” forums. Othyrsyde is also working on doing drawings and other artwork for Jared's TL Lands of Red and Gold.
othyrsyde is probably a lefty of some variety; but has yet to truly reveal much beyond that. She has so far announced her association with FFF, but has made it clear she has not joined their ranks; and has also shown an interest in supporting the efforts of DISPPR. othyrsyde is also firmly against nobility, being her ancestors suffered under the boots of such highborn tyrants.
