On the internet, almost everyone knows me as Viola501. And for some close pals, I have told them the history behind this name.
My screen name is Viola501 (You may call me Vi. Everyone call me so)
There are 2 reasons behind this name
The “Viola” part is originated from my favourite Shakespeare’s literature Twelfth Night. Viola is the protagonist, a part of fraternal twin. This play is also adapted into a movie “She’s the Man” starring Amanda Bynes.
There’s also a cute and accidental link of my screen name to YEH.
When mistook that her twin brother died in a ship-wrecked, Viola cross-dressed as a man named Cesario and work for a Duke (in some adaptations, she disguised in the cross-dressing as her own twin, Sebastian).
Go Eun Chan anyone?
Plus! I love the instrument “Viola“. Viola is a classic instrumant very similar to Violin, only a bit bigger and its tone is higher than Violin. I know violin is everyone’s favourite but I just prefer viola
And the “501” part is from my birthday – January 5th
So, that’s the story of my screen name Viola501
Now tell me yours! ^o^
You are Viola, the disguised young lover who rightly claims, “I am not what I am.”
Alone in unfamiliar territory, believing all is lost, you are not the kind to give up…even if it means disguising yourself as the oppposite sex…even if it means taking a job wooing your own rival for the one you love. Witty and intelligent, you sorely feel the irony of your situation, but your honor compels you to carry through. Will true love conquer all?

If I didn’t get Viola, my image might be ruined and I’m going to have to change my screen name =.=
PS. Guess which character Eira, the snowflake got… Hamlet!
