So I asked my coworker to remember something and he replied that he would forget his own name if other people didn't call him by it, and I realized something sad.  I actually did forget my own name once.

I was a freshman in high school I think, and I was at the public library.  I'd just met someone and started talking about good books to read since we had similar interests in literature.  When he introduced himself and asked me what my name was I just stood there...with a blank look on my face...frantically racking my brain in a seemingly futile attempt to remember my own name.  It's not like I have a lot of nicknames.  Almost no one calls me anything but my name.  It might be understandable (if a little pathetic) if I was talking to a cute girl, but he was just a random guy who liked the same kind of books as me.  I don't know why, but at that moment, my mind decided to go out to lunch.  I finally grasped that my name was an alternate form of John.  Which led me to Sean.  Then I finally remembered.  My name is Shane.  I was so flustered at the long, uncomfortable silence that had already ensued that I blurted out 'Sean' instead.  At which point I, more embarrassed than before, explained that my name was actually Shane, which is an alternate form of Sean.  He asked, confused by my strange answer, if I was called Sean a lot, and I replied that it happened occasionally, but not often.  I could tell he was beginning to wonder if I was alright in the head, so I quickly, but politely, ended the conversation and left to find my sister...and promptly never said a word of this to anyone else before today.

If you can beat this story (which is absolutely true, I swear) with your own (must also be true) story of one of your (not someone else's) epically absent minded moments, then I shall :salute: you and write you a short story of the type of your choice (I don't do fanfics or steamy scenes, but anything else goes, including a story about one or more of your OCs).  An alternative prize is to have one of your stories receive a free edit/critique by me (a service I normally charge for).

oh and also what kind of weapons do they use?
hand to hand combat style should probably be ju-jitsu and judo
what do you think?

Since they don't have any natural weapons like the other races and are pretty flimsy in hand to hand they typically rely on ranged weapons, which they are naturally gifted at due to their dexterity and sharp eyes.

Yeah, any martial art that uses an opponent's strength is good for the hakkir.

Yeah, I could tell.  :D

Interesting to note that during their more primitive times their hand to hand weapons were designed to be lightweight and sturdy so spears were their preference, not to mention it keeps the enemy a little further back than a sword would, and it can be thrown.  Bows are also devastating in the hands of a winged hunter.  In the current time of LotS though, they pretty much just use energy weapons, both for melee and ranged.
