Where I get confused, though, is when a character has more than one commonly used version of their name. Not given and family names -- I choose one. But sometimes you have "Wesley" and "Wes". Or "Momoshiro" and "Momo".
And what about the epithets? Do you like them? (I confess, while I don't like them in general, I have a bit of a kink for reading about Skinner kissing/fucking/beating up "his agent". Mmm.)
What's the best one you ever heard? I recall reading a PoT story which kept referring to Oishi as "the former fuko-bucho" and Momo as "the dunk-smash specialist".
If you have no opinion on that, do you prefer your apple pie with ice cream or cheddar cheese?
