Shinies are a fandom sub-culture very similar in nature to furries, but instead of the focus being on anthropomorphic creatures or animals, the interest lies with anthropomorphic robots.
Would you call yourself a furry? No, I'm really more of a shiny.

(Noun pl. "shinies")
A new initiate or member of a group, club, or organization, esp. fraternities and sororities.

Usually someone is labelled this immediately after initiation, pinning, or joining the organization, until the next group of people join. Used both affectionately and to patronize in a mentor-like way.
All you shinies, make sure you remember to make it to the general meeting Sunday!

I was talking to an enthusiastic shiny yesterday, I think they will spur us all on this semester.

(adj.) referring to a style associated with many gay men that puts strong emphasis on neat personal grooming, fashionable clothing and effervescent social interaction; sometimes generalized to refer to gay males in general.

(Coined, as far as I know, by my ex-wife, an actress, as a code of sorts shared with her circle of gay male friends and picked up by her many straight friends, as well.)
"Is that haircut shiny or what?"; "Don't go gettin' all shiny around me"; "Do you think he possibly could be, oh, I don't know....shiny?"
