Tremor is the feeling you get when you play against me...more commonly known as the T effect. I just love this name because it seems so original and something about it starting with a T makes it sounds different.

Mine is actually a pretty long story.

My sister was in the hospital with appendicitis and my family and I were worriedly huddled in the waiting room for several hours. At some point during this wait, a little old lady came in and sat down next to my sister and I.

I forget how exactly we broke the ice with this lady, but we ended up talking about many things. Eventually, she confessed to us that she was a Native American princess and that she would let us into her tribe! All we had to do was select a special name for ourselves.

She explained that the name had to have special symbolism. According to her, most Native Americans named themselves after animals or objects with a verb or adjective defining themselves (like "sitting bull" or "strong tree&quot.

After about fifteen minutes of pondering, I finally decided upon the name Dancing Cow! The name, I thought, portrayed my resourcefulness and joviality. Not really knowing a good outlet for use of this new title, I decided to make it my online alias (along with a few others).

Was she actually a Native American princess or just a crazy old lady? I'll never know. I do have *some* Native American blood in me, as my lineage has been traced back to the Powhatan tribe.


TL;DR: Possibly crazy "Native American princess" dubbed me Dancing Cow in her tribe.

Back when I first started playing LoL, I had been read the Marvel Zombies series. I loved the fact that Galacticus got devoured by a horde of super-powered zombies. In doing so, they gained (you guessed it folks): The Power Cosmic.
