I registered at Wikiquote in August 2006, and chose this name because by The Antiquary Sir Walter Scott is one of my favourite novels, and because it's an accurate self-description. I've done a little work on English Wikipedia and various of the foreign-language Wikiquotes, but my main presence on Wikimedia projects has always been here, especially on our literary pages.
Here's a selection from the complete list of pages I've created:
