How it began
I peeped in a magazine that my sister bought that had a Rayman 2 review in it. I was about 12 then. I've been a Rayfag ever since and despite the ups and downs I still am.

- I think of the Whale Bay underwater music each time I go swimming.
- I am Rabbids friendly and I don't stand for Rabbids wank*.
- I was the first in the fandom to have discovered extra levels in the Atari Jaguar version of Rayman.
- I was in third place in the UK PS2 category for the Rayman 3 Hall of Fame at one point. That won me the magazine and a tshirt.
- I've cosplayed as Ly and Origins!Betilla in public quite a few times now. It was so fun. :>
- I'm still butthurt by that shitty paper cone Hoodlum someone on RZ made. x:
- I found one of the life-size Rayman 3 statues while on holiday in Blackpool in 2007. I wanted to take it home. ;_;
- The Youtube account "Saffya" containing the TV series episodes is indeed me.
- Speaking of which, I have met Billy West, who voiced Rayman in the TV series, and got my copy of the DVD signed by him.
- Even though I did not runner up in the 2011 Art contest here, I was still treated to the trip to Eurogamer and the night at a nearby hotel, thanks to my boyfriend who did win, as well as some of the goodies.
*My stance on the Rabbids series
I have worked on most articles relating to the Rabbids series, including the ones after TV Party which have not featured Rayman ever since, quite simply because I do not want to have to do such on a shitty Wikia that's overrun with teenagers that don't know what they're talking about. Even now that the two franchises have completely split from each other now, I still thing articles about say Alive and Kicking should still be allowed here, especially when there are wikis like the Super Mario one that allows for articles about spin offs (eg. Donkey Kong, WarioWare etc) to be made.
As for what I actually think of Rabbids, I can't deny that I'm a big fan of the critters themselves. I did used to be a complete hater when the first RRR came out, mainly because of how Rayman 4 was aborted in its favour, but over the past 5 years I've gotten over and now it pissed me off to high heaven when people still whine about them, especially now that Rayman Origins is in full swing. Regarding the games, my favourites include the main version of TV Party (the best one IMO) and quite surprisingly, Rabbids Go Home on the DS. I still have a love/hate relationship with RRR1 and Rabbids Go Home on Wii, though RRR2 was OK. RRR2 and RRRTVP on DS weren't fantastic but weren't terrible either. As for Travel in Time...don't even go there. A&K was OK I guess but fuck me that threw me in a coughing fit, so vigorous.
It is indeed against the rules to attack Rabbids games and characters in any form, and I can punish you for such, so don't even think about it. Please. Thanks.
