The stage has been set and seats filled, the collective presence of the Playground sits, murmuring in anticipation of the event.

Conversation quiets as the curtains open and a slim figure steps out from the shadows they cast. Wisps of darkness, like smoke, trail behind him and dissipate as he steps into the spotlight.

Greetings, Playgrounders, and welcome to the latest incarnation of the Get to Know a Playgrounder Interview. I am the ghost_warlock and I will be hosting the interviews upon this stage. Next door, Reinholdt will be conducting a concurrent interview. Please feel free to move between the halls at your whim, posing questions to both of the interviewees. A tentative schedule for future interviews as well as the interview archive can be found here (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=10657363&postcount=1).

That said, let me delay no further and commence the event.

Please give a warm welcome for our first victim: The Rose Dragon.

Ghost hands over the microphone and slips back into the shadows from whence he came, leaving only his voice behind to echo the following questions:

gw's Questions of Questionable Intent

1. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? If so, who?

2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?

3. Roses or orchids?

4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?

5. How did you get to be so awesome?

6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?

7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?

8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?

9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?

10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)

11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?

12. Beards or babies?

13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?

15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?

16. Favorite mythological monster?

18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?

19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?

20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?

The Rose Dragon

1. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? If so, who?

Do you want the full list or would you be fine with just a short (i.e. hundred character) sample?


2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?

My hair is awesome. It refuses to stop being awesome.


3. Roses or orchids?

*looks at user name*

*looks at g_w*

*looks at navel*

Orchids.


4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?

The fact that I am scared of death.


5. How did you get to be so awesome?

I sold my soul to God. I am a hell of a negotiator.

[QUOTE=ghost_warlock;10715607]6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?

I was in junior high. I have no idea if I know anything worth knowing back then. Japanese, maybe?


7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?

A woman devoid of genetic disorders and is not a carrier of any who knows how to clone people so we can repopulate the human race.


8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?

I don't know. Most of my celebrity heroes died after I was born.


9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?

If I have to die, I'm kinda hoping there is at least world peace or something afterward. I want my genetic payloads to keep on breeding for all of humanity's history, after all.


10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)

What is a lolcat? Is it a Chinese breed? I don't really like cats (that is quite an understatement, really).


11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?

Ageless immortality. Then I can just keep shooting him until he dies, and hey! I get to live forever afterward.


12. Beards or babies?

BABIES! *nom nom*


13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?

Several words. Which one do you want?


14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?

In which language?


15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?

When you say "old-fashioned song", I can't help but think of Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy.


16. Favorite mythological monster?

I could work hard to be original, but screw it: it's going to be the sidhe.


17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! :smallfurious: Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?

In a rousing game of Warcraft III.


18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?

No. I actually suck at Warcraft III.


19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?

Serious, I guess? I don't know. Haven't really thought about it.


20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?

Because people hardly asked any the last time around.

Why a rose dragon?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 06:47 AM
Why a rose dragon?

The Rose Dragon, thank you. The Rose Dragon is the nickname of Prince Jin Long from one of my thought experiments. Rose, because of his beauty and danger (as the rose has prickles), and dragon because his name means dragon. Also, he can actually command dragons (though not the long, in-setting).

What do you like to collect?

Do you enjoy watching the Weather Channel? :smalltongue:

Blue Ghost
2011-04-06, 11:33 AM
Favorite color?

Favorite fruit?

Favorite ice cream?

What is your theme song?

What is your alignment?

What is your Magic: The Gathering color?

What is the meaning of life?

What are your thoughts on:

Love?
Friendship?
Freedom?

Do you have any suggestions for my list of questions?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 12:24 PM
Marvel or DC?

DC. I don't really read Marvel outside of Ultimate Spider-Man and a select number of one-shots.


XBox360 or PS3?

I don't own a 360, so I'm not really qualified to compare them. But PS3 has Folklore and Metal Gear Solid 4, so I can't really imagine not having a PS3.


What profession would you most like to try?

Professional sexmaster. (http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1851)

Seriously, though, I think I'd like to be a writer. Not a book author, maybe, though I'd like that too. I just want to create my own hackneyed crap, instead of be limited to everyone else's.


What profession would you NOT like to try?

Any job where other people's lives depend on me. No offense, medical people, but how do you deal with the stress? Are you some sort of alien robot?


Favourite vacation place?

Sitting at my computer, playing games and stuff. I get to do that less and less as time goes by.


Any vacation plans at the moment?

In fact, I have a spring break starting this Friday.


What convinced you to join GitP?

There was a suggestion in a national gaming magazine about the comic. I mostly stay for the boards these days.


Fish or chips?

Both, but only if the fish is fried. I can't stand non-fried fish. Especially not grilled.


What question would you like to be asked?

"Will you marry me?".


What traits do you look for in an ideal pet?

It should have less fur than I have. Preferably cold-blooded, so I can just turn on the air conditioner to calm it down. It's a bonus if it eats animals furrier than I am. That, and elephants. I don't know how one can have an elephant as a pet, but I'm willing to give it a shot.


What is the square root of Pi?

Irrational.


What's your favorite OOTS strip?

I don't know? I don't like OotS that much. I haven't given it much thought in months. I am partial to the one where Therkla dies, however.


What's your favorite Erfworld strip?

I can't point to a single one, but this one (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/erf0123.html) has a West Side Story reference. That makes it all the more memorable.


How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?

We have a cordial relationship. I am far less confident and sarcastic offline, however (mostly because I have a fear of physical proximity and intimacy).


Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?

I'd probably save my most loved one.


What is your favorite word?

Yakamoz.


What is your least favorite word?

I have no idea. Failure, maybe?


What makes you enthusiastic?

New things! Do you have new things? I like learning about them and then dismantling them to see how they tick. Like a watch.


What disappoints you?

When I flunk an exam because I spent time on my computer instead of studying.


What sound do you love?

Green and blue sounds, like Opeth's or Tori Amos's songs.


What sound do you hate?

The sound of my alarm clock. Through the last year, it has become a sound I associate with impending doom (i.e. classes).


What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?

Being a writer, again.


What profession would you not like to participate in?

Again, any job where people's lives depend on me.


If heaven exists what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

"I... uh... I don't exist." (http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=624#comic)


What color(s) do you prefer to wear?

Black, red and white. Mostly black and red. I might spruce it up from time to time.


What do you like to collect?

Bad habits. Not like smoking and stuff, but more physical tics I shouldn't have.

Other than that, fictional settings, movies and TV shows.


Do you enjoy watching the Weather Channel? :smalltongue:

We don't have Weather Channel here.


Favorite color?

Green.


Favorite fruit?

The fruit we are not allowed to discuss.


Favorite ice cream?

Rocky road and chocolate fudge brownie.


What is your theme song?

4'33". I hear it all the time, so it must be true.


What is your alignment?

Mostly upright, slightly bent towards the front because of a bad back.


What is your Magic: The Gathering color?

I don't know. I never played Magic.


What is the meaning of life?

To live.


What are your thoughts on:

Love?
Friendship?
Freedom?

I like freedom. I desire friendship. I despise romantic love. I enjoy all other sorts of love.


Do you have any suggestions for my list of questions?

You're doing just fine, I think.

I've noticed that you seem to have a dislike of D&D with a preference to other systems...

Why do you dislike D&D so much?

What other system is your favorite? Why?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 01:05 PM
Why do you dislike D&D so much?

I don't dislike D&D. I like the first version of D&D, from the 1970s, and I like 4th Edition, even though I wouldn't play it if there is an alternate. I dislike 3rd Edition specifically, and there are many reasons for it. A big reason is its (in my opinion) undeserved popularity, however, beyond having the D&D name.


What other system is your favorite? Why?

Full package, Mutants & Masterminds 2nd and 3rd Editions. Mechanics-wise, Unisystem. I can't explain why, though.

Asthix

Do you have a favorite author? If so, who?

If you could be a comic book superhero, who would it be?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 01:22 PM
Do you have a favorite author? If so, who?

I can't point to one off the top of my head. I do have a favorite book, but it's the only book by that author I've read. I could say Isaac Asimov at the moment, though, cause that's the only one that comes to mind.


If you could be a comic book superhero, who would it be?

Captain Marvel!

Why did you choose what you did for your avatar?

What makes your hair so awesome?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 01:57 PM
Why did you choose what you did for your avatar?

There was a masked prom thing a couple years back, and I wanted to go as myself. I had longer hair back then, see.


What makes your hair so awesome?

My genes and the shampoo I use.

Do you, in fact, have any cheese here at all?

Will you go quietly when they come for you?

What is your anti-zombie weapon of choice?

Are you running to something, or from something?

What's the magic word?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 02:13 PM
Do you, in fact, have any cheese here at all?

Why yes we do! Want a sample?


Will you go quietly when they come for you?

Depends on how I'm feeling at the moment.


What is your anti-zombie weapon of choice?

Thermonuclear warhead.


Are you running to something, or from something?

I am not running.


What's the magic word?

Shazam.

Now?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 02:43 PM
What do you cry about?

Things that make me angry.


What do you laugh about?

Things that are funny.


Do you remember your dreams and what are they?

Sometimes. They tend to messed up, though. I once told an assumption about one of my dreams, and the poor thing couldn't strangle anyone for days.


Will you go out with me?

Sorry, I'm cepia.


What's your favorite airplane and why?

A319 Airbus.


(optional) If you didn't pick the P-51D, what's wrong with you?

What's wrong with you?


Do you enjoy the quenching taste of prickly pears?

I don't eat pears.


What sort of *uninhabited* terrain would you most prefer to be stranded in for a year?

Urban.


For 5 years?

Again, urban.


If given a spaceship only good for one trip out and back, where would you go?

I like being here. If that fails, any other planet inhabited with living beings with a level of technology similar to ours so I can carry my computers.


Am I asking too many annoying questions?

No.


How about now?

No.


Now?

No.

What is your opinion on the topic of the internet?

If you didn't have internet access at this very moment, what would you do?

What is your favourite song right now?

1977. What is your favourite thing that happened in that year? If not favourite... most interesting.

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 03:30 PM
What is your opinion on the topic of the internet?

I didn't know internet was a topic now. I suppose my opinion is "what the hell are you guys talking about?".


If you didn't have internet access at this very moment, what would you do?

Read a book. Listen to music. Play Infinity Blade. The possibilities are (not) endless!


What is your favourite song right now?

The Wind That Shakes the Barley. I am partial to Loreena McKennitt's performance.


1977. What is your favourite thing that happened in that year? If not favourite... most interesting.

Elvis Presley died that year. That was sad.

*goes to listen to some Presley*

What is your opinion of ponies?

What is your favorite animal?

What is your favorite thing to talk about?

What is your favorite thing to think about?

If you were me, what would you ask you?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 04:29 PM
What is your opinion of ponies?

They are often too small for me to ride them. However, they make for great working animals.

Turn that wheel, pony! Turn it hard! This is your torturous fate for all eternity!


What is your favorite animal?

Pythons and vipers. Though I am wary around actual vipers if they are not defanged.


What is your favorite thing to talk about?

Trivia. Linguistics, mythology and gaming trivia mostly.


What is your favorite thing to think about?

"I wish it was holiday already. I could play lots of games if it was holiday."


If you were me, what would you ask you?

"Will you marry me?"

Thufir

Why can I no longer remember the question I was going to ask you?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 04:50 PM
Why can I no longer remember the question I was going to ask you?

Think harder. It will come to you.

((It was "Will you marry me?", wasn't it?))

What's your favorite language?
Favorite word from that language?
What languages do you speak or write?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 05:09 PM
What's your favorite language?

I don't know! I am particular to Japanese at the moment, but I love all languages! Languages are my obsession! If I had all the time in the world, I'd spend most of it learning new languages.


Favorite word from that language?

Again, I don't know.


What languages do you speak or write?

I am a native Turkish speaker. I am fluent in English. I am in the process of learning German and Japanese.

Orange Juice, Pulp or No Pulp?

If you were a cyborg, what body part goes first?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 05:14 PM
Orange Juice, Pulp or No Pulp?

No pulp. Hate pulp. Even though it is said to be healthier. I just can't stand it.


If you were a cyborg, what body part goes first?

Depends. Do I get superpowers for the replaced body part?

WHat is your idea of an ideal man?

What about your ideal woman?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 06:15 PM
WHat is your idea of an ideal man?

Physically, Michael J. Fox.

Personality-wise... I'll get back to you on that.


What about your ideal woman?

Physically, Audrey Hepburn.

Personality-wise... damn this is hard. While I do tend to be rather shallow most of the time, this is an ideal woman, so I'll go all out in this. She has to be confident, above everything. Has to have conviction, but should be able to own her mistakes. She should accept that I'm not a big fan of furry things. Should definitely genuinely want kids, rather than begrudgingly. She should preferably be a gamer, though not to the exclusion of other hobbies (I'm still working on fixing that in my own life, by the way). Should be well-read or educated (personal experience is a plus!). Should try to fix problems rather than keep complaining about them. Unless she is deaf, I'd rather she be into a wide variety of music.

I'm sure this woman would never actually date me at this point, by the way.

If you met Charlie Sheen in person, what would you do?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 06:36 PM

I would probably strangle him while shouting "YOU RUINED SPIN CITY YOU BASTARD WHY DO YOU DESERVE TO LIVE?".

Would you marry Stephen Colbert?

No.


Are you James Franco?

No.


If you had to chop off your arm, could you?

No. Too much of a self-preservation instinct.


Do you wear glasses?

No.


If no, should you?

My eyes are perfectly fine, much to my dismay.


Define intullectual.

A misspelling of intellectual, I assume.


What's cooler than bein' cool?

Absolute zero.

AtlanteanTroll
2011-04-06, 06:44 PM
No.
But why?


A misspelling of intellectual, I assume.
Quite possibly, yes.

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-06, 06:46 PM
But why?

Because I said so. Want to argue?

AtlanteanTroll
2011-04-06, 07:19 PM
Because I said so. Want to argue?

Not really. I just want to know the deeper meaning of your "no" ... you know?

factotum
2011-04-07, 01:26 AM
No. Too much of a self-preservation instinct.


What if you're like that guy who's trapped down a canyon by a rock that's fallen on his arm, and the only way you'll get out is by chopping your arm off?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-07, 04:12 AM
What if you're like that guy who's trapped down a canyon by a rock that's fallen on his arm, and the only way you'll get out is by chopping your arm off?

Well, humans have certain blocks in their nervous system that prevents them from applying their full strength out of fear of hurting themselves. These blocks are released at certain situations, such as mortal danger to one's offspring. If something similar happens, I can see myself chopping my arm off, but I'd rather not. We haven't perfected cybernetic arms yet.

What is your favorite Turkish proverb that translates badly into English? (please provide English translation)

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-07, 08:45 AM
What is your favorite Turkish proverb that translates badly into English? (please provide English translation)

I know more English proverbs than Turkish ones! Though there are several that use synonyms or homophones that don't exist in English, such as "many things arise before the dawn". A literal translation would be "many things are born before the day is born".

I don't drink Turkish coffee, so I cannot say.

Why do you make a reference to Firefly in your sig if you've never watched it and you don't even like it?
Why do you always post in D&D threads even if you claim to not care about it?

Any relation/connection between the Firefly-esque sig and the Hellfire sig?

The Rose Dragon
2011-04-09, 11:05 AM
Why do you make a reference to Firefly in your sig if you've never watched it and you don't even like it?

How can I not like it if I have never watched it? Besides, it is not a reference to Firefly, it is a reference to Exalted.


Why do you always post in D&D threads even if you claim to not care about it?

Because I probably know the answer and I'm the first to post. I don't even check the D&D forum unless the top thread is something I can answer. So you are wrong in that I always post there.

So I'm told. That doesn't change the fact that I never watched Firefly. Or the intro.

Thanks for having me, folks!


1. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? If so, who?
Yes. Louis Wu, from Ringworld. He's so awesome, lemme tell you what.


2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?
The snark.


3. Roses or orchids?
No.


4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?
Food and sleep, like everyone else.


5. How did you get to be so awesome?
Don't know about all that.


6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?
Ten years ago, I was 12. That means I was in middle school (6th grade, to be exact). I do wish I knew who to trust (learned that the hard way).


7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?
Hmm. Actually (and this is so cheesy), probably cycoris, from these forums. Just about the only person I've met so far that I don't get tired of talking to.


8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?
Oh man. I don't even know. E. Gary Gygax is on that list though.


9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?
My gravestone will say "I TOLD YOU BITCHES SO".


10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)
Not a big lolcat fan, though this (http://pics.livejournal.com/claidheamhmor/pic/00057sag) one always makes me smile a little.


11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?
Godzilla Repellent.


12. Beards or babies?
Beards, yo.


13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?
No.


14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?
What is "that word made up by ghost_warlock", Alex?


15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?
"It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known."


16. Favorite mythological monster?
Awwwwwsnaps. That's a tough one. I've got a lot of favorites, though the first one that pops into my head is the Greek Hekatonkheires, or Hundred-Handed Ones.


17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! :smallfurious: Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?
On the field of love.


18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?
No, I'm bad at that.


19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?
Either or. Nice mix of both so far.


20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?
I'm chill like that, I guess.


What made you decide on your username?
See this guy? (http://magiccards.info/scans/en/rav/190.jpg) When I was younger, I always misspelled it Argus Kos. Eventually, I just gave up and started using arguskos as my nick. I have a secondary one that few people know.


Your avatar?
This (http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u250/bloodydoves/Zaaman-Rul/Necromasterbyakakuma.jpg) image is awesome.


Do you always use the same avatar?
No. (http://s170.photobucket.com/albums/u250/bloodydoves/Avatars/)


Do you always use the same username?
These days, yes.


What is the average air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
Not answering that.


1977. What comes to mind?
That's a stupid sounding year.


If you like chocolate, what variety do you prefer?
Semi-sweet dark is my absolute favorite. White can go burn in a fire for all I care, and milk I'm pretty picky about.


How many avatars do you have?
According to that link above... 16 unique ones.


What color(s) do you prefer to wear?
Orange is my favorite, though I also like crimson, black, grey, tan, and even a bit of blue or green from time to time.


What do you like to collect?
Decks of cards and curious US currencies (I'm a numismatist at heart).


Do you enjoy watching the Weather Channel? :smalltongue:
No.


Favorite drink?
Alcoholic or otherwise?

To the first, I don't drink regularly, but when I do have a drink and I've got options, I like a mojito pretty well.

To the second, cherry coke is my favorite day-to-day drink. Specialty drinks I enjoy are varied.


What is your opinion of ponies?
I'm... reaaaally tired of seeing them.


What is your favorite animal?
The majestic and noble dragon.

Oh. Wait. Real animal. Uh... I like turtles I guess.


What is your favorite thing to talk about?
Whatevs. I can talk about pretty much anything. I do like talking about the Forbidden Three though, sex, politics, and religion.


What is your favorite thing to think about?
Love and relationships.


If you were me, what would you ask you?
How come I'm you?


Why haven't you done that one thing you've been meaning to do?
Money, man, money.


What's the plan?
Solve the money issue, do that one thing, enjoy.


Why the username arguskos?
Answered above, actually.


What has it got in it's pocketses?
Uh... I'm not currently wearing pants. However, in my pants (which are across the room), there are the following things:
-2 mechanical pencils
-3 pens, one red, one blue, one green
-My wallet (leather, obv; no cash in it :smallfrown:)
-A small pocket knife for opening things
-My keys (actually, attached via a carabiner to my belt loop)
-A belt (actually worn via belt loops, but close enough)
-A 1925 liberty silver dollar
-A 2003 "walking liberty" silver dollar
-4 1971 Kennedy half-dollars


How did you find GITP?
I was trawling the internet one day, looking for something to do. Found this place. Never left.


What's your favourite place in the real world?
Bam! (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=10729950&postcount=15)


And not in the real world?
The sanctity of my mind, especially my dreams when I no longer want to talk to real people.


Favourite book?
Three-way tie:
-Ringworld, by Larry Niven.
-I, Robot, by Issac Asimov.
-The Elric of Melnibóne saga, by Michael Moorecock.


Favourite movie?
Oh jeez. No idea.


Favourite TV serie?
Don't watch TV, but probably Futurama.


What question would you like to be asked?
Dunno. Whatevs.


What traits do you look for in an ideal pet?
Are you lovable? If not, I won't love you. Just that easy.


What is the square root of Pi?
Delicious.


What's your favorite OOTS strip?
Pass.


What's your favorite Erfworld strip?
The next one. :smallwink:


How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?
It is me. I don't draw a distinction. I try very consciously to keep who I am here and who I am when I'm not here the same person, so that if you ever met me, you'd feel you already knew me.


Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?
Uh... damn. You're a ****. :smalltongue:

Probably the loved one. I'm juuuuuust cold enough to not care about faceless nameless people I will never know or care about. I'd be tortured about it though.


What is your favorite word?
Eldritch.


What is your least favorite word?
Alot.


What makes you enthusiastic?
The prospect of time with friends. :smallredface:


What disappoints you?
When someone lets me down, or fails to live up to expectations.


What sound do you love?
The sound of rain. The gods are in the rain, you know, letting us know they are there for us. Yeah, that crosses the religion line, but I just had to give a reason.


What sound do you hate?
Self-inflicted stupidity or ignorance, and the effects thereof.


What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
I'd like to have a profession. :smallannoyed:


What profession would you not like to participate in?
Garbage man.


If heaven exists what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Well, I know what he would say ("What the **** are you doing here?!"), but I'd like to hear him say that I was welcome, and that he was happy to see me. I mean, I know that wouldn't happen, but that kind of acceptance would be pretty nice.

Is there anything about you that you think people should know, that they wouldn't find out by just reading your posts?

If so, what is it?
Yes. Mostly, that I'm not as abrasive as I sound/read.

Also, a whole bunch of stuff about sex/politics/religion that I can't talk about here, for obvious reasons. :smalltongue:


How often do you think of things that happened or might happen or are happening on GiTP when not at the computer?

If yes, what kind of things do these tend to be?
Not much. If I've got an active thread (this one atm, or a homebrew thread I'm working on actively at the moment), I'll think about it. Otherwise, not much. I mostly just trawl the forum, looking for interesting stuff.


Do any of your real-life friends know about GiTP?
Yes. My gaming group knows my username as well. I've even got at least one RL friend on here (The Precentor; please don't hassle him though, he's a nice guy).


If yes, is it because you told them about it?
Yes. :smalltongue:


And lastly, how do you feel about obscure references to obscure shows?
I'd miss them.


Languages you speak?
German, poorly. English, terribly (:smalltongue:). Dunno if you'd count the Cant, but if so, Sigilian Cant, passably.


Favorite language?
Tolkien's Elvish. It's so melodic and beautiful, it blows my mind. I could sit and listen to someone read off the stock of oatmeal at a nursing home if it was in Elvish, and still think it's pretty.


Favorite word in any language?
Three-way tie between eldritch (in English), tanj (slang curse from Ringworld, means "there ain't no justice", used in the manner of "tanj dammit!"), and cutter (slang from the cant, means someone who's pretty resourceful and clever, a term of endearment almost).


Cake or pie?

Based on above question:
What kind of cake/pie is your favorite?
Neither. Cheesecake.

Favorite kind is a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake I had awhile ago. Despite my distaste for white chocolate, this was quite good. With white chocolate, I only like it as a flavoring or ingredient in something else. Straight, it's just foul. :smallyuk:

Good sir,
Well I don't know about that attitude, whippersnapper. :smalltongue:


What is the most interesting coin in your collection?
Sadly, my collection is small and uninteresting thus far (since I am young and poor). I'd probably go ahead and call the 1925 liberty silver dollar my most interesting piece, since it so rarely comes up, and since it's a very personally significant coin. It's not my oldest though, that'd be a 1888 Indian head penny I've got.

I'd like to get a stella one day, along with a 3 cent piece, a 2 cent piece, and a 20 cent piece, but those are all fantastically rare coins, so it's unlikely for the time being.

My real wish is to acquire a 1974 aluminum cent, of which only a small number were made (1.5 million or so), and almost none made it out of the Mint's hands. Given that they were destroyed by the Mint, odds of my acquiring one is basically zip.


What is your favourite place in the U.S.A.?
Yeah, probably my grandparent's house on San Juan Island, off the coast of Seattle. Just so beautiful out there.

Do you only collect American coins or do you collect international coins as well?
I have some international stuff (nothing interesting, I've checked), but being American, it's just easier for me to collect US coins.

I tend to gravitate towards really obscure stuff, such as how the 1996 toonie (the Canadian $2 coin) could have the center of the bimetallic coin popped out, in a very amusing fashion. I'd love to have a '96 toonie, just for that fun trick. :smallbiggrin:

That it is. :smallcool:


What is your favorite stellar object
Tie between Pluto's moon, Hydra, for being obscure as hell, and the dwarf planet Eros, out past Pluto's orbit, for also being obscure as hell.


What is your favorite restaurant in C. Bus.
Awww man, that's tough. Probably going to have to roll with Akai Hana though.


What is your favorite restaurant outside of C.Bus and where is it located?
Outside the bus? Man, there's a lot of nice food in the world. Let's break it down somewhat.

Chains: Whattaburger (fast food burgers, and damn fine ones actually), Schlotzsky's (sandwiches, amazing amazing sandwiches), and Zaxby's (wings, kinda pricey, but really excellent).

One-off Shops: Wild Ginger (Seattle, a pretty high-end place, but has this one really really great chicken peanut sauté thing that's just to die for) and Pop Burgers (I think there's two now, found in New York City, damn they made a great burger and had really really nice fries; I want to go back to NYC for that alone), and a place in Dubai I can't remember the name of, but had the absolutely best food I have ever eaten ever. It was Lebanese, and was to DIE for. Here's how fresh it was. We ordered some lamb, and the waiter went in back, and killed a lamb in the back! It was a bit of a wait for our food, but it was literally alive and bleating just an hour before I ate it. And it was delicious. :smallcool:


Favorite sushi?
Well, I am not a sashimi man. I like me some rice! While I do appreciate nigiri, I prefer our bastardized american rolls, just cause I grew up on those and really like them. >_>

Bonito, when you can get it here, is always worth the price though. Looooooove a piece of that stuff. :smallredface:

Can't really place a "OMGSFAVORITE" though.


Favorite form of art?
Sculpture, classical. I don't like the super abstract stuff.


Favorite music?
Rock and roll, also classical. The King Reigns Supreme. :smallcool:


Favorite color?
Uh... I'm not trying to buddy up or anything, but blue. Specifically, a nice navy blue.


Favorite fruit?
Sorry, I can't help but want to say "Alex" and walk away laughing.


Favorite ice cream?
Graeter's Blackberry Chocolate Chip.


What is your theme song?
Rodeo Clowns, the first song here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rK0LWsEcSjM). Best recording of it ever, and my personal favorite song (great meaning there).


What is your alignment?
CN.


What is your Magic: The Gathering color?
Blue/Red.


What is the meaning of life?
To live like every day is of vital importance.


What are your thoughts on:

Love?
Friendship?
Freedom?
They're the most critical parts of life, but not in that order. I'd rank them:

#1: Freedom. The prime requisite for being human. Without this, nothing else matters. He who denies me this denies me life, and is forever my enemy.
#2: Love. What you seek once you have your freedom.
#3: Friendship. A nice stop-gap for love, and what you enjoy with your freedom.


What is the color of your aura?
Mauve. I like mauve.


What does your essence taste like?
The aromatic taste of unrepentance, tinged with the bitter salt of regret and the sweet sensation of innuendo.


Who would you ask to the next Playground Prom, if we had one?
Awww, does the Ghost need a dance partner? :smallredface::smallwink::smalltongue:

What comes to your mind when you read:

-Iron Dinner
-Raw Potato Incident
-Breakfast?!
-Flergadershdersh
-Ow.
-That's a hell of a story.
-Bout damn time. I'll take 3 waffles, some maple syrup (not that processed crap, some natural please), a big thing of butter, some bacon (super-crispy), no-pulp orange juice, 2% milk, and maybe a fresh baked biscuit with some seedless raspberry jam.
-You are in desperate need of a spell checker.


If the moon turned out to be the site of a massive undercover project to relocate a portion of the earth's population(think hundreds of thousands) and only you(and the people doing it, of course) knew, how would you react?
Depends entirely on the people in question (both who's getting moved and who's doing the moving).


What's your opinion on utterly ridiculous situations(like the above, only moreso)?
Interesting thought experiments, but ultimately pointless.


What's one place you'd really like to visit, and why?
Europe, specifically, Italy. I was born Italian, despite not actually being Italian, or having any family that is Italian, but I've got the same attitude towards life that the Italians have historically held and I loooooove their food. Rome is somewhere I desperately need to visit.


What's one place you'd never want to visit and why?
The middle of the Sahara, due to having nothing I care about it in, and being miserable, climate-wise.


What is your alignment?
It continues to be CN, as Blue Ghost asked. :smalltongue:


How do you define the alignments?
Tricksy, aren't we? Here are my definitions, with an example later on to show how they, basically, function.

Lawful: Placing a code not your own above any code you may personally hold.
Good: Placing the well-being of the other above the well-being of the self.
Chaotic: Placing your personal code first.
Evil: Placing the well-being of the self above the well-being of the other.
Neutral: Not doing any of the above.

Example: Guy A shoots and kills Guy B. You witness this, and have martial arts training and enough skill to stop Guy A. You also can just walk away and no one will ever know.

LG: Stops Guy A, because both the law of the land says Guy A is a bad person and because it's better to stop him then let him roam around doing whatever and shooting people.
NG: Stops Guy A, because he just shot someone, and that's kinda uncool. It's better for everyone if he's not doing that.
CG: Probably stops Guy A, both cause he just shot some guy (uncool, etcetcetc) and cause he's f***ing dangerous and CG Guy likes his life just how it is.
LN: Stops Guy A, cause the law of the land is all "uh, don't shoot people".
TN: Entirely ruled by whim. Morally-speaking and from the standpoint of what code he follows, the TN Guy is on the knife's point. His thoughts about Guy A and Guy B, about shooting dudes, and about what he had for breakfast that morning, are what's going to rule his decision here. The least predictable of the alignments, due to just not having a strong feeling either way.
CN: Possibly stops Guy A, on the basis of whatever his personal code says or if he feels threatened or whatever.
LE: Probably stops Guy A, on the basis of that's the law. If there's a way to twist the situation to his advantage though, LE Guy looks for and takes it, assuming it doesn't break the law of the land in the process. LE Guy doesn't judge the laws (though he'd like to make them), just uses them.
NE: Probably walks away. It's not NE Guy's problem, and it's not worth getting involved.
CE: Coin toss between walks away and kills Guy A. Personal code is the deciding factor here.

You'll notice that the L/C axis uses the words "personal code" a lot. There's a reason for that. It gives leeway within the axis for individual thought and perspective on any given situation, and defines how the L/C axis even works (Law is the reliance on someone else's personal code before yours, Chaos is the reliance on your code over other people's).

I like both to an equal degree. Yeah, that's a cop-out, but I really do like both and find comfort in them both in specific instances.


Do you prefer this world or any other?
Our world is nice, and has all my friends, but I'd prefer to live in a D&D world. Things are clearer there, and everyone has magic, which is pretty awesome, not gonna lie.


Which is the most noble of goals?
Nobility is a subjective concept. I'd not presume that I can answer such a question correctly.


What would you be willing to die for?
The well-being of those I love and care about.


And I thought I was the only one who did that. I mean, how can people even tolerate having their keys weighting down in the bottom of their pockets?
You quoted me talking about the belt, but I know what you mean. Yeah, I love that. I used to have my keys on the end of a lanyard, but it broke. :smallfrown:

Correctiveness is a subjective concept as well when it comes to subjective questions, but I won't press you on what isn't a critical question.

Well, when asking the question "what is most noble" you're clearly expecting a definitive "X is most noble", and I don't feel I can provide that for you, thus the overly detailed cop-out. :smalltongue:

arguskos
2011-04-11, 04:31 PM
What's your favorite genre of your favorite form of media?
By media, do you mean specifically film/television/music, or do you mean something else?

If you mean film/television/music, I'll probably roll with film as my favorite and say that science fiction films remain my favorite, due to their high potential ceiling.


What do you think of abstract art?
The idea of art abstracted is a good one, but far too many artists delve too deeply into the pool of pretension, using "it's abstract" as an escape from criticism. For instance, there have been artists who simply painted a canvas a single shade of blue, then sold it for thousands of dollars.

That's not art. Art has depth. Blue has no depth, it's just blue. Stop being pretentious and make something with some detail and depth dammit.


What was the last book you read? Was it any good?
Last actual book I read, not counting the various gaming manuals I peruse commonly, was my old dog-eared copy of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, by Verne. And yes, it's quite lovely.

Last piece of literature I read was Harrison Bergeron, by Vonnegut. Also good, though I didn't care for it overly to be honest. Sadly, I have to write a paper on it for Wednesday, and I'd really rather not. :smallsigh:

It... continues to be blue. :smalltongue:

Also, Kneenibble, here is the answer to the question about the coin:

What personal significance does the 1925 silver dollar have that you mentioned? If I may ask?
It was given to me, along with two brethren, by an old lady who lived across the street from me when I was a child. As I was young, I didn't realize their value, so I fritted two of them away like a fool. The third was tossed into the bottom of a coin jar and forgotten about for many years.

I found it recently, around four years ago, in 2007, when I was making the decision for what school to go to out of college. I was... out of time to make a decision, and couldn't decide, so I said "meh, screw it", flipped it once, and went with the decision.

A month later, at my new school, I saw a girl walking past one day. I thought she was pretty hot, and was wondering if I should call out to her and brazenly invite her to join me for a snack and perhaps a trip to the pool. I couldn't decide, so I tossed a coin. The same coin, actually. Came up heads 2/3 throws, so I went with it. We were together 2.5 years, including the happiest one of my entire life, and the worst one of my life.

I've carried it ever since, using it to decide my fate when I can't make up my own damn mind. Today, I carry it for that reason, as a reminder of my religious beliefs (which I can't discuss here, for obvious reasons), and as a simple reminder to keep my eye on the physical things in life.

I named it, even. Hekate, after the Greek goddess of magic, fate, and the crossroads.

The 2003 walking liberty, which notably is a 100% silver proof which should never have seen circulation, is my token of good luck (nothing says luck like getting a 100% silver piece in CHANGE AT THE GROCERY). I named it too, Tymora.

Nice, but also non-American, which is all I really actively look for. :smallwink:


1) Can I capitalize your name?
Please don't.


2) Why?
I view it as a sign of respect to not capitalize someone's username unless it is already capitalized or they expressly state that it's ok. Just about respect.

For example, I wouldn't refer to Gwyn chan 'r Gwyll as "gwyn" or "chan". I'd either use the full username, or shorten it to "Gwyn" (a clear first name, as the space indicates). I'd refer to you as bluewind95 or just bluewind, if you were ok with that. Similarly, if I meet a guy named William, and he doesn't give any other form of address, I'm not calling him Bill, I'm calling him William.


3) You see a tiny fish on the ground. It's still alive, helplessly flopping around. What do you do?
If there's water nearby, I'll scoop the poor guy up and place him in said water. If there isn't... uh... I'll probably move him out of the path of people, but there's not a lot I can do for him at that point.


4) Iced coffee?
Nah. Not a big coffee drinker (yeah, I know, I miss out on all of the major vices of adulthood, coffee, alcohol, and tobacco ; I'm boring).


5) White gold, rose-colored gold, or normal gold?
I like classic gold. White gold makes me think of silver and of platinum, and rose-colored gold makes me think of bronze and copper. Not to say white gold and rose gold aren't pretty, just that I like classic gold more. Saw a lot of it in Dubai, let me tell you what. :smalleek:


I am contractually obligated to do this, I am afraid.

This question by ghost_warlock is a good one, and I answered it poorly. In fact, so poorly, that I forgot I had a real answer, which a friend has reminded me of. The real answer is "Yes. Murderize. The meaning should be clear."

That's a tough decision. However, since I flat refuse to acknowledge the existence of the games past LeafGreen (and I didn't acknowledge Ruby or Sapphire), I've only got 252 to pick from. I'll list a few:
-Magneton (my god I love Magneton, I just wish he had a slightly deeper move pool, and by "slightly deeper" I mean "I wish he wasn't good for exactly ONE role").
-Starmie (BOLTBEAMING HUZZAH)
-Forretress (a giant steel pinecone, what's not to love?)
-Charizard (he was always my favorite starter, and was my first one, so I've got a soft spot for him)
-Pupitar (yes that's right, not Tyranitar; I like the larva guy and think he's kinda cute)
-Scyther (he's just awesome looking)

1. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? If so, who?
I don't think I ever have. :smallfrown: Man that's a boring answer...

2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?
Hmmm.... tough one. I suppose it would be my ability to create characters and worlds. Too bad most of them don't see the light of day.

3. Roses or orchids?
Roses.

4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?
Other than Caffeine? :smalltongue: The thought that graduating will let me go do post-Graduate studies outside the country. Hopefully I'd do them in the US or Canada.

5. How did you get to be so awesome?
I don't know. .-. People seem to like me, I don't know why. Crazy people.

6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?
Ten years ago was... 2001.... I know what school I ended up studying in. And I know I should have started doing paperwork for another school earlier.

7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?
Dunno, but it'd be a girl, definitely. I don't think I have a particular one.

8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?
Walt Disney! Did everything I want to do, I just need to figure out how.

9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?
Awesome person who published a lot of stories. I don't care how!

10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)

14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?
Attempting to be serious when in reality it's just being silly. That's what it sounds like to me.

15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?
None. I'm not really a musical person, so music doesn't stick to my head as much.

16. Favorite mythological monster?
The Phoenix. It must be awesome being a Phoenix.

17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! :smallfurious: Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?
FINAL DESTINATION! :smallfurious:

18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?
Of course. You posed no threat to me. I just swung a sword around like a madman.

19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?
A prefer a healthy combination of both.

20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?
I like answering questions.

I'd like personalized questions, but anything goes, really.

What traits do you look for in an ideal pet?
The ideal pet is in the midpoint between too clingy and "Human not required". I'd like one that doesn't require too much care, but does appreciateyour being there.

What is the square root of Pi?
X

What's your favorite OOTS strip?
I'm not sure. I think it'd be one of the old Stand-alone joke strips. The sort I can show to people who have never read it. I'm fond of the newer ones, too, though.

What's your favorite Erfworld strip?
Truthfully, I only read Erf up until it stopped being published here. I started reading the newer strips, but quickly lost interest. It's just not for me, too game-y.

How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?
My ITP persona as in... Haruki the Angel? The character? Well, he's sort of me... gary sue'd, I suppose. On the other hand, he's not very smart. He's just... happy. All the time.

My ITP persona as just my behavior on the forum? Well, it's meif I had the ability to think long and hard during conversations, write out what I'm gonna say, and then edit it after I've said it. :smallwink:

Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?
I don't really have a significant other. :smallfrown:

What is your favorite word?
Well, you English speakers have a certain word that's VERY versatile, but it'd get caught in the forum filter.* :smallbiggrin: I suppose barring any R - rated words it would be.......... PIE!

*I'm joking of course.

What is your least favorite word?
Teeth. I don't know why.

What makes you enthusiastic?
A new release of something I'm a fan of. A free afternoon. A school assignment I'm actually interested in doing.

What disappoints you?
Going to class and finding out it's not the sort of class you thought it would be. :smallfrown:

What sound do you love?
The sound of rain. It helps me relax and sleep well.

What sound do you hate?
WHISTLING. :smallfurious: It just distracts me. If I'm thinking about something, I might have just plotted out a perfect plan to save the world or take over the world or destroy the world, start whistling next to me and the whole thing poofs.

What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
Actually, my second choice was to be a chef. It would be an awesome profession.

What profession would you not like to participate in?
I couldn't possibly be a doctor. The stress is too much for me.

How did you originally get the idea to do Angelic Slayer?
Originally I started out making avatars just because I felt like it. I liked that they turned out pretty well. Eventually I thought of a few things and... thought they'd be funny as comics. So I figured "sure, why not?" and started Angelic Slayer. It was also a bit of a big ad for people to join AMEN, but thigns have changed a lot since then and the AMEN depicted in Angelic Slayer is part of a bigger world now, the Nexus. Unfortunately some people still misinterpret that as Angelic Slayer being a Nexus webcomic when it's not: It's a Playground webcomic. It's just that back then people in AMEN played themselves as characters. To clarify: I don't object to the way the Nexus has evolved to accomodate new people and different characters. But it does make things harder for the comic.


Factotum
What does your forum name actually mean?

Why did you pick "Haruki-kun" as your name? (I know you said what it means; if you just liked the meaning, ignore this question :smallwink:)
A friend of mine decided to start picking "Japanese names" for all of her friends. She gave me one and.... I kinda hated it. So I went to a baby names website I used when naming characters and advanced searched "Japanese male names only". Found Haruki, and well... liked the meaning. :smalltongue: since this was a few years before registering on GITP, I went with it.

Why did you pick what you did as your avatar?
I had another character who was an Angel of sorts. Or rather, he looked like an Angel and took the shape of an Angel. Not really an Angel. Then I decided I wanted that character as an avatar, but eventually I started separating them and a completely new character was born.

Is there anything that you think people should know about you that they wouldn't find out by just reading your posts?
If so, what?
......hmmm..... that's a tough question. If I think of an answer, I'll repost it.


Orzel
Orange juice, pulp or no pulp?
No pulp. I'm not big on juice, anyway.

Ever knocked over a biker's bike?
No, never. :smalleek:

Your least used arm is now replaced by a mechanical one, what special ability does it have?
It turns into an X-Buster! :smallbiggrin:


Strawberries
How did you find GITP?
A friend of mine liked the comic and he linked me to it. I bookmarked it and read it a week or two later.... I was on a boring trip and had nothing else to do. He linked me to the latest strip. Back then it was this one (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0360.html). By the time I was done reading the archives, it was this one (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0365.html).

What's your favourite place in the real world?
That I've been to? Probably... Las Vegas. But I doubt living there is the same as being a tourist there.

And not in the real world?
=O Uhm...... Ankh-Morpork? Nah... that place would be horrible to live in. Maybe.... Spira, probably. I dunno. Hard to answer.

Favourite book?
:smalleek: ONE??? Uh........................ wow.......... Men at Arms. Maybe.

Favourite movie?
Spirited Away. No contest.

Favourite TV serie?
Anime included? Higurashi no naku koro ni. Not included? Friends, followed by Dead Like Me


Blue Ghost
Favorite color?
Blue

Favorite fruit?
Apple or Banana, depending on the mood.

Favorite ice cream?
Chocolate. Or else Vanilla with chocolate topping. And Whipped Cream. And pecans or peanuts. And maybe caramel. And brownies or cokies to go with it..............
......................I've been on a diet for a while. >.<

What is your theme song?
That is a question I will answer differently if you ask me once every two months. :smalltongue: I really don't think I can pick.

What is your alignment?
Chaotic Good.

What is your Magic: The Gathering color?
Sorry, I don't play Magic.

What is the meaning of life?
*shrug*

What are your thoughts on:

Love?
Love is like Tokyo. I know it exists, but I've never been in it.

Friendship?
Friends are OK. It's just... sometimes they become really complicated. And then you hear them talking to each other... about each other.... and you can't help but wonder if they do that behind your back, too. Protip: they do. :smallfrown:

Freedom?
I can't answer this one.

What is the color of your aura?
BLUE.

What does your essence taste like?
Bittersweet.

What’s your elemental affinity?
Classic Elements, Chinese, Japanese, or free?
Classic: Water.
Chinese: Water.
Japanese: Void.
Free: Light.

Who would you ask to the next Playground Prom, if we had one?
I didn't go to the last one... I really doubt I'd go to this one.


Smellie Hippie
Do you stir your drinks clockwise or counter?
Clockwise. I just noticed that.

Do you talk with your hands a lot?
Not.... really. :smallconfused:

When standing around in a crowd, what do you do with your hands?
If I have nothing to hold? Either put them in my pockets or fold my arms.

Do you swim with your eyes open or closed? Does it matter if it is salt water, fresh water or chlorinated?
Closed, unless it's in a pool. If it's salted, closed. In a pool I just need the chlorine levels to be acceptable.

Would you pick a fight in the War Room?
In the what? :smallconfused:

Hugs from people at a first time meeting?
Awwww... I'd hug all of you and spend the entire day hugging you again and not believing I'm actually there, and then when I left, I'd hug you all again! *hugs*

Speaking of which, did you know that bunnies can SCREAM!!?!?

I didn't.

Sweet Dreams, by Eurythmics (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQzG-3Vagrk&feature=player_profilepage), the Sucker-punch soundtrack version. What do you think?

Decent enough answer.

And you're wrong, Sid is totally cuter, though Idol was actually a musician! I'd easily settle for either one...

If yes, where, and of what?

Do you find these things attractive in other people?

Haruki-kun
2011-04-15, 12:13 AM
Do you have/Would you get a piercing?
No, and no. I just don't find them particularly cool or attractive.

Tattoo?
Tattoo I might consider. But I wouldn't go through with it. While I think they look pretty cool, I know I'd regret it. I get bored with stuff pretty fast, and this is one thing I wouldn't be able to get rid of if I got bored.

If yes, where, and of what?
A small emblem of wings in the back of my left shoulder. That would be nice.

Do you find these things attractive in other people?
Not piercings. Maybe tattoos.

1) So... what do you think of our beloved country of... Mexico?
Truthfully, I'm not very comfortable here. :smallfrown: I'd like to live elsewhere.

2) You can't be an angel anymore. What do you become?
D= Can't be an Angel????? Ugh.... I suppose a superhero or some sort of magician or warrior or something. I really don't think much about it. Angel suits me. *flaps wings*

3) You're stuck in a world of pokemon, in which things are... quite like the game pokedex would have you believe. Dangerous. Deadly. You can only have ONE pokemon with you(it can be any). Which is it?
Celebi. Time Traveling, woot!

4) You see a fish on the ground. It's still alive, flopping around helplessly. What do you do?
If there's water nearby, take it there. If there's none... what the heck is it doing there? :smallconfused:

5) What's your least fvourite color?
Hmmmm.... Purple.... I think.

6) Why?
I dunno. Not appealing to me. And pretty useless when drawing compared to other colors. I bought a bunch of drawing markers and the least used one was purple.

I'll just go ahead and answer my last few questions, then.


Gadora
What's your favorite genre of your favorite form of media?
Fantasy. Always fantasy.

What do you think of abstract art?
It's OK. As long as it was done with Art in mind. When it's just someone being lazy.... eh....

What was the last book you read? Was it any good?
It was The Little Prince. And it was beautiful.


Kneenibble
Name one good thing about living in Mexico (despite your discomfort there)?
I suppose I could go ahead and say that the people are nice... usually. And the culture is very rich. The food's nice, too.

Any piano composers, pieces, or styles you particularly like?
I'm not a very musical person, to be honest.


Em Blackleaf
What is your opinion of ponies?
Ponies are OK, I guess. I don't see what all the fuzz is about, though. =/

What is your favorite animal?
Uhm.... cats, I think? I don't really think much about it.

What is your favorite thing to talk about?
One thing? Hmmmm..... literature and other media. But I like to TALK about it and deeply analyze it. Not just "lol it sucks" or "oh, it's awesome".

What is your favorite thing to think about?
Same answer as previous question.

If you were me, what would you ask you?
I'd ask me what I'd ask me. :smalltongue:

Why a goblin?

Morty

What color(s) do you prefer to wear?

Gray, black, dark blue.


What do you like to collect?

I don't really collect anything.


How many avatars do you have?

Several, but I don't tend to go back to them once I get a new one.


Will you ever attend GenCon?

If I ever end up in the States, maybe.


What type of chocolate do you prefer?

Milk.


Do you enjoy watching the Weather Channel? :smalltongue:

Not particularily.

Skeppio:


Why did you choose 'Morty' as your username? Is it a nickname? Does it carry some sort of significance to you? Or is it something else entirely?

Well, when I joined the forums I had a nickname "M0rt". As in Pratchett's Mort, but the version with a normal o was already taken. After about two years, when I decided I'd had enough of the tomfoolery with a 0, I switched to Morty.

Mangosta:


Do you, in fact, have any cheese here at all?

Yes, I do.


Will you go quietly when they come for you?

Depends on how much weapons I have.


What is your anti-zombie weapon of choice?

A machine gun. Aim for the legs and see them crawl. No idea why people are afraid of zombies.


Are you running to something, or from something?

From something most of the time.


What's the magic word?

Kazam.

Haruki:



So.... you're a goblin? What's that like?

Pretty cool. I save a lot of clothes cause you know, small.


Why a goblin?

I'm not sure myself where my fondness for goblins comes from. I suppose it's because they're sneaky, crafty, clever and morally ambiguous. Also because everyone treats them like a joke and cannon fodder and I tend to sympathize with the underdogs rather than the races set up as "good".

Do you look at the screen or your keyboard when you type?

At the screen.


Do you edit your posts for typos?

Yes.


When cutting your meat with knife and fork, do you switch hands or continue using the same hand to bring the food to your mouth?

The latter.


Crusts or no crusts? (Applies to both pizza and sammiches)

Crusts. Yum.


Do you stir your drinks clockwise or counter-clockwise?

Clockwise.


If there was a irritating trait in a fictional or non-fictional character that you otherwise adore/admire, who is the character and what would you change?

Nothing. All traits are a part of a given character, even irritating ones. And characters that are too perfect feel unnatural.


What setting do you put your toaster on?

3, last time I checked.

Asthix:


When Dwarves insult your goblin heritage, what is your go-to response?

I set their beards on fire. >=3

Reinholdt:


Kobolds?

That's a bit more difficult. I play it on a case-by-case basis.

Thanks, Morty, for your time - it's been fun! Looks like we've got a fresh shipment of the home game in so please be sure to grab one off the table in the back.

Ghost points Morty towards a small stack of mirrors by the refreshments table.

And now it's time to introduce our next guest, who happens to be someone very dear to me. Please, everyone, help me in welcoming my creepy niece and favorite Playgrounder all-around, RabbitHoleLost!

Ghost kneels and removes his hat in respect.

I've heard it said that, contrary to popular belief, zombies do not really crave brains. As a Necromancer yourself, can you offer any clarification on this matter?

Is your true name to be found among the Great Old Ones described in the mad scribblings of Abdul Alhazred?

How can you tell if a person is made out of wood?

What if life really is "but a dream"?

Are you worried that you might be bombarded with so many questions that they might drive you crazy?

If the answer to the previous question is no, is that because you already believe yourself to be crazy?

It's Friday! Hop in the front seat, or kick it in the back seat?

Is there a question you do NOT want to be asked?

Trollface/Me Gusta

11. What do you think of this (http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/03/31/glee-news-sue-sylvester-does-david-bowie/)?
Me Gusta.

[/QUOTE]

Hippie!
How many new crushes does it take for one of your previous crushes to fade into obscurity? (ie. Bowie, lady gaga, beetleguese, etc...)
First off, BJ was never a crush. Lydia was the crush, and BJ was an idol =P
Secondly, the only time one of my crushes stops being a crush is when they do something to end my admiration. They may not be an obsession anymore, but my celebrity/idol crushes are always crushes.

Follow-up question... which five (5) crushes are permanently entrenched and will not be moved, and how did they come to be so?
1. Louis de Pointe du Lac - In probably the same way many current teenaged girls will always retain a fondness for Edward, Louis will always be my first vampire crush. And seeing as my vampire stage as a teenager greatly influenced who I am, well....
2. David Bowie- You know, I didn't actually like him at all until I was 18? I can't really remember what changed my mind- I was in college for a year, and a lot of things changed about me, and he was the soundtrack of my life. He saved me in some ways.
And I mean, come on, look at him in those pants in Labyrinth
3. Sean Connery- Its frickin Sean Connery. What more explanation do you need?
4. Neil Patrick Harris- I thought he was adorable in his self-parodying role in Harold and Kumar, which, silly enough, was my first impression of him. And then a few years later, Magtok forced me to watch Dr Horrible. I went through a small obsession with him, and found that I really admired him as a person. He's hilarious, but really a kind person, too. That kinda faded, but cropped up every now and again until recently, where it became a full blown infatuaion
5. Carrie Fisher- Star Wars. Star Wars. That's all I have to say, really, but the woman has gone through so much and she's so strong and I adore her to pieces.


Do you put on your right shoe first, or your left?
Left

Now that your are of legal consumption age, how much extra beer will I need to brew for June?
Not too much. I don't intend to drink myself drunk, especially not on your delicious works.

Did you wear braces as a young child? (bonus cookie for pics)
No sir. I have this one crooked tooth, even, but my dentist said it adds character and it just wouldn't be worth spending all the money to get braces for that one tooth

Favorite Halloween costume you have ever worn? (pics)

I like it cause I slapped it together in twenty minutes =3

How many marriage proposals have you had on this forum?
Mmm, I think I've only received one from someone on the forum. I have proposed myself...I think three times?
Ooo, and a banned Playgrounder offered to Trade my father a bunch of sheep and goats and cattle and a brewery for my hand in marriage.
My dad agreed :smallsigh:

Will you marry me?
Are you using me for a Visa?

What are you views on raccoon-rabbit marriages and the socio-economic effect of them in the media?
Has it ever happened? Probably in some Disney film. Disney films love interspecies love.

"By George, I think he's got it!"

4) Well if you change your mind, just drop a line.


The area was empty; too empty. Aside from the ship itself, there was no evidence that there was anyone at all about; not even droids. And yet the area looked too well maintained; the catwalks weren’t degraded or rusting; all of the lights were functional and emitting at standard human comfort levels.

Spiggot

But, no. I have always enjoyed having friends tell me how pretty I am:smalltongue:
If you could go anywhere (money is not an obstacle), where would it be and why?

I wasn't aware my drinking habits were this well known

PhilistineI've heard it said that, contrary to popular belief, zombies do not really crave brains. As a Necromancer yourself, can you offer any clarification on this matter?
Did you know, technically, that thing started from a movie that never once called them zombies, but ghouls? Zombies just wanna eat all of you
Is your true name to be found among the Great Old Ones described in the mad scribblings of Abdul Alhazred?
I'm not saying yes, but I'm not really saying no, either.
How can you tell if a person is made out of wood?
If you chop them with an axe, and they don't bleed, but infact splinter, chances are they are made of wood.
What if life really is "but a dream"?
Then why can't I control it?
Are you worried that you might be bombarded with so many questions that they might drive you crazy?
Not really. I've been kinda slow at answering them, but, then again, I've been really busy these past few days.
If the answer to the previous question is no, is that because you already believe yourself to be crazy?
Or that could be the answer you were looking for.

What are your thoughts on:

Love? Nice, but I'm pretty close on throwing in the towel. That sounds silly and all, but I'm so sick of chasing after it. I grew up in the Disney Golden Age, and I feel like I've got this permanent disillusion of love.
Friendship? I love my friends. I feel like I could never do anything without them, and I'd kill for them. I was at one time known for fiercely defending my Playgrounder friends >>
Freedom? [b] Freedom is what you make it

What is the color of your aura?
Probably red. Maybe red-orange

What about ones I can flirt with until they give in to my charms?

I'm planning on attending the Trogland Meet-up. Approximately how awesome will this be?

Femur

What's the point of it all?
Right now, I'm really not sure.

Does it matter if anything is real?
Not really- if its not, I'd rather not know, though. And if I do find out, I'm pretending otherwise.

Are you as reckless as you seem?
Some of my friends would say yes. My boyfriend would probably tell you I'm not as reckless as he would like.

Why do you stay here?
Because I love you people.

Favourite thing by Neil Gaiman?
Interestingly enough, I haven't read much of him. Just Good Omens, Stardust, and a bit of Sand Man.
Hafta say I loved Stardust to pieces.

Favourite thing Neil Patrick Harris has done?
Toss up between being the Shoe Fairy Person on Sesame Street and Dr Horrible. I am really fond of his character Barney on How I Met Your Mother, too.

Back in the days of Shipping, did you have a particular favourite fic? And did you have a particular favourite shipper?
You know, its not what anyone expects as the answer, but Kneenibble was definitely my favorite shipper, and his Tea Party ones with Rabbit/Mordokai were some of my favorite ships to this day.

Which do you actually prefer - Beatles, Bowie, or Gaga?
That is a horrible question.
Probably a split between Bowie and Gaga, actually. I wish they would team up to do something ::pout::

Are these questions really hard?
That last one was unfairly hard.
BooDear Rababa,

How would you react if someone came back to this message board?

Sincerely,

Nobody
I'd love to see you back around, but doncha get bored of this place? If you don't enjoy it, don't force yourself :smalltongue:

Thufir again
If/When one of us crosses the Atlantic to meet the other, approximately how awesome will it be?
A metric crapton. There will be explosions.

Thanatos
Will you Buy my book?
Lemme know when and where
Do you know any vulnerable publisher's son's and/or daughter's I can kidnap and hold at ransom for actual book-publishing rights?
Not particularly. And, considering your good alignment, I'll have to point out this probably wouldn't be a good course of action to take.
What about ones I can flirt with until they give in to my charms?
This one is a little bit better, but still kinda dark and manipulative :smalltongue:
I'm planning on attending the Trogland Meet-up. Approximately how awesome will this be?
So awesome. FINALLY WE CAN MEET FACE TO FACE
Do you ever feel shame that you got me to both listen to and approve of Lady Gaga?
Why would there ever be shame in something so naturally good as that?

Are you currently Wet, Naked, Screaming and Helpless?
I feel like I am on the inside

Are you aware that if the answer to the previous is no you were not, in fact, Born This Way?
I was, sorta.
HIPS!
OMG YAAAAAAAAY

Robert Smith vs. Morrissey?

Is there anything musical that you and Raistlin disagree about? :smalltongue:
Assuming you had the cash, which music festival this year would you want to go to/wanted to have gone to?

Robert Smith vs. Morrissey?
Robert Smith, hands down. I really like Morrissey/The Smiths, but I love The Cure and Robert Smith
Coolest Beatle?
Of the main Fab Four, I really like George. Buuuut, I really admire Stuart Sutcliffe, too =P
Favorite cover of a Gaga song?
The dude from Inception and 500 Days of Summer sings Bad Romance (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6zMwGkY7z4) (and also drops the Eff bomb, so, warnings for that)
Wisconsin, or no?
No
Thoughts on Nexus/FFRP?
I'm too far behind to really get involved again. I don't have the time, either, and it seems like you need to spend several hours each day doing nothing but.
Also, some people take it all way too seriously. My roleplay is for fun, darnit!
Favorite philosopher?
I don't really have one that I particularly like
Favorite philosophy?
I find Taoism pretty interesting. I like the way it states things should be- I just wish I could follow it
Is there an inherent benefit to brevity?
In some cases, I imagine so.
What's the worst thing about calculus?
I can't do it:smallannoyed:
4chan?
A long time ago
Is there anything musical that you and Raistlin disagree about? :smalltongue:
Actually, a lot more than we actually agree on. I love my female vocal folk/anti folk music, and he hates it. I am pretty proud of myself for getting him into Imogen Heap, though :smalltongue:
Assuming you had the cash, which music festival this year would you want to go to/wanted to have gone to?
I'm a bad music fan, because I don't really keep track of all this stuff. I see single concerts, not really festivals. And every festival I think about, usually has one or two artists I like, and then a bunch I don't know about or don't care for.
Dubstep, yes or no?
A resounding NO
Absurdly 80s nostalgia House, yes or no?
Yes
Coolest accent?
I really like Scottish accents. And Canadian
Was it worth it?
Yes
Are you sure?
Don't make me come after you
KneenibbleLady --
Amidst the deluge --

Have you a favourite piece, composer, or style for the piano?
I guess I'm not very educated in classical music, though I do love piano pieces. You'd think, since I do so love pianos, I would know more about them, musically, but, really, it comes down to "...this is pretty piano =D"
To give a really vanilla answer, I love Beethoven's Fur Elise, and I really like piano covers of current pop music.
Do you own any antiques?
No, sir, though I'd love to collect


RecaidenWhat would you say?
I would say that I used to be, but I feel like I'm getting kinda exhausted with such things. I feel like I'm getting much older than I actually am

The Sun or the Moon?
Moon. I can deal with rainy days forever, but I like clear nights with a nice, bright, full moon.

Why does the caged bird sing?
Because the man who put him in the cage feeds him.
How do you feel about reflections?
I'm rather fond of them. In a shallow, vain way.

Zombies. Everywhere. Would you hole up in your own bunker, or quest for survivors and en masse zombie killing?
I would be the one controlling the zombies, silly! But, also, I think, questing for survivors.
(Self-destructive question) If I were a zombie on said outbreak, and were about to eat your leg, or something... Would you kill me? How?
No. You're pretty awesome, so I would let you nom me and then we could be awesome zombies together
Do you have any idea of how to build an actual d13?
No idea
Is it even possible?
I'm not really the person to ask
What was the last character you played in a non-freeform RPG like?
I've really only played in one non-freeform RPG. I played a tiefling rogue in a part full of genasi. As with most of my female characters, she was bitter and mean. And she abused the human barbarian a lot
If you had a great partner for it, and could sing the awesomest awesome duet... Which song would you choose?

A single roommate, I think. Its nice to have someone there, but, at the same time, I like having my space and my alone time. I'm not sure I could ever get married or cohabitat with a lover- I need my own room.

Are you ticklish? Where?
I am not ticklish at all. Its great fun to tickle someone who is, though >=3

A lot. On silly little things that would take me like two minutes.

The Oakland Raiders defeated the Minnesota Vikings in the Superbowl and Jimmy Carter pardoned Vietnam War draft dodgers.

A whooole bunch. If we ignore the smaller things as pictures rather than posters, I have...
A "Government Issue" Zombie Survival Poster, a Joker/Dark Knight Poster, a Jim Morrison poster, a Clone Wars animated series poster, a Beatles Abbey Road poster, a Lady Gaga poser, a Dirge of Cerberus wall scroll, a Watchman poster, and a Woodstock poster.

If I offered you a giant cow pillow, like, a pillow in the shape of a cow, and big and fluffy, and called 'Moo-cow', would you accept the gift?

Star Wars came out.

In your considered opinion, what killed the radio star?
Professor Plum in the Ballroom with the Knife?

How much would you pay for a first-issue of the Andy Warhol album by The Velvet Underground & Nico, with peel-off banana?
I have no interest in such an item.

Why a moose?
Mooses are inherently funny animals.

Do meese have any special value for you?
It’s kind of a running gag in my family.

Do you say meese or mooses? Or even meeses...
Mooses. It sounds awesome.

Naturally.

If I mentioned Pete Shelley, do you have any idea who I'm talking about?
Nope. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvdf5n-zI14)

My warm bed every night.

And not in the real world?
My own pocket dimension.

1. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? If so, who?
Used to have one on Min Farshaw - her characterization in The Eye of the World made her seem bat**** insane, which I thought was awesome/hilarious. Both Lady and Soulcatcher from The Black Company are on a more recent list.

2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?
Gotta be my mind. My ability to maim with Kubb sticks is a close second, though.

3. Roses or orchids?
Well, roses have thorns, which gives them the potential to be used as weapons. Have to use poison to get any effect from them, though...

4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?
The most epic failure of pattern recognition ever.

5. How did you get to be so awesome?
A special blend of psychosis and sociopathy.

6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?
Primary thing? Current me would slap past me silly and scream "Just tell her, you fool!"

7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?
Hmm.... I'm a bit anti-social. I don't think I know anyone whose presence wouldn't become tedious within a week if we never had anything to do or any kind of break from each other... It might be fun to play survivor with Natalie Portman for a few days before I get sick of it all and put us both out of our misery...

8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?
I imagine that Miguel de Cervantes would be a fascinating conversationalist.

9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?
I can think of no better epitaph than the one given Ishamael: "More than half-mad, less than half-human."

10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)
http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c355/Mangosta71/M-KittenMurder.jpg

11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?
Stop him? I would choose channeling (a la WoT) to escape through a Gateway and let him wipe out this whole state.

12. Beards or babies?
I look ridiculous without a beard, but babies are tastier...

13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?
I'm sure I made up several when I was little. Don't remember any of them now.

14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?
A chocolate-covered elephant with a crisp candy shell.

15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?
I don't really get things stuck in my head.

16. Favorite mythological monster?
Bit cliché, I've always been a fan of dragons.

17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! :smallfurious: Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?
Main Street, pistols at noon.

18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?
Of course. I spent the night in the bell tower with a sniper rifle.

19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?
You and your silly false dichotomies. :smallamused:

20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?
I wanted to see just how much emotional scarring I could inflict with a single stroke.

You walk into a room willed with rats. What do you do?
Do this all the time at work. What I do depends on why I'm there. I might put labels on the cages, or clip their ears in distinctive patterns so I can tell them apart, put them in a warmer for a few minutes and collect a little blood, fill needles with various chemicals and shove them down their throats, or put a few cages on a cart and wheel them to another room where I'll gas and dissect them.

What about one filled with bugs?
Come back with a lighter and a can of Raid.

Snakes? Indiana Joneses?
Lock them all in the same room.

You're in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling toward you. You reach down and you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping. Why is that, Mango?

MANIC-AWESOME

Portal Kombat (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyOzzd53ssY) - what's your finishing move?
One portal under my opponent's feet, other in front of a school bus full of kids.

Do you, in fact, have any cheese here at all?
Yes.

Will you go quietly when they come for you?
I'm taking as many of them with me as I can. They can be lifeguards when I'm doing swan dives into the lake of fire.

What is your anti-zombie weapon of choice?
Barrett .50 cal.

Are you running to something, or from something?
The Red Queen.

What's the magic word?
Avtomat Kalashnikova.

What question would you like to be asked?
Whatever comes to mind. Doesn't really matter as I'll just spew random nonsense at it.

What traits do you look for in an ideal pet?
Quiet, clean, small enough to fit in my lap.

What is the square root of Pi?
So irrational that *forum-inappropriate snark redacted*.

What's your favorite OOTS strip?
If I have to pick just one, when Belkar declares himself the sexy shoeless god of war.

What's your favorite Erfworld strip?
Near the beginning, when Parson convinces little tyrant dude that "tool" is a title of respect.

How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?
I say the same sorts of things in RL conversation, so pretty well.

Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?
That's easy. A bunch of faceless strangers are nothing to me.

What is your favorite word?
I wish I had occasion to use mokusatsu more often.

What is your least favorite word?
nukular

What makes you enthusiastic?
The odd individual.

What disappoints you?
People.

What sound do you love?
silence

What sound do you hate?
the tone-deaf shrieks that pass as singing for the average children's choir

What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
I've been told a number of times recently that I would do very well as a lawyer. The logic puzzles and wordplay might make that interesting...

What profession would you not like to participate in?
Anything that involves actively helping people that I don't know.

How did you find GITP?
My brother got me to read OotS.

What's your favourite place in the real world?
Probably my bedroom. Has my bed, my computer, my books and movies...

And not in the real world?
Omelas

Favourite book?
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Favourite movie?
Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Favourite TV serie?
The only thing I watch that's currently showing is Castle.

How’s life at the moment?
Not bad, I s'pose

Favorite color?
Dark green

Favorite fruit?
freshly cut pineapple

Favorite ice cream?
I'll go with a turtle pecan swirl right now.

What is your theme song?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRmT7F_FI8E - from about 1:02 to 1:10 (the Blue Rook fanfare).

What is your alignment?
Pragmatic. In D&D terms, I test as chaotic evil with neutral evil tendencies. However, I'm the scary kind of chaotic - I'm actually smart enough to plan and not needlessly reckless.

What is your Magic: The Gathering color?
Black and Blue.

What is the meaning of life?
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

What are your thoughts on:
Love?
Typically characterized by a willingness to sacrifice for the benefit of another. Sounds good in theory.

Friendship?
Love without romantic interest.

Freedom?
Misunderstood and underappreciated by the vast majority of those who claim it.

What is the color of your aura?
Mottled dark gray with crimson streaks.

What does your essence taste like?
A fine wine, with a subtle hint of strawberry, and perhaps kiwi. After a few minutes, you'll notice warmth begin to spread throughout your body, making you thirst for more. An hour later, your entire digestive tract will feel aflame as the poison ravages your system.

What’s your elemental affinity?
Fire, with a secondary affinity for Earth.

Who would you ask to the next Playground Prom, if we had one?
If I could be bothered to go, I'd probably ask Shunty or Koorly.

Are you part of any other online communities?
Not really. *EDIT: Facebook, if that counts*

How often do you clean out your PM box?
When I get a warning that it's almost full, I'll prune old messages that are no longer relevant. Doesn't happen on a particular schedule.

What fictional character do you most identify with?
Probably Mat Cauthon.

Socks: Yes or no?
I work in a laboratory, where I am required by federal safety regulations to wear closed-toe shoes. I'm not wearing shoes without socks.

Do you like being evil?
It's not so bad.

What can I do for you?
Depends. Do you have a sister?

Hug?
Hmm... Very well. But I'm watching you. Can't trust those LG types.

Why did you pick mangosta71 as your username?
I picked up the nickname Mangosta about 10 years ago. The 71 appelation is part of a non-forum-appropriate joke.

Why'd you pick what you did for your avatar?
I'm wearing my Halloween costume in the best picture ever taken of me. I was dressed as a pirate - I've kept the costume and still break it out every once in a while, and my family and RL friends have run with it. Since mangosta translates to mongoose, a mongoose dressed as a pirate seemed appropriate.

Is there anything about you that you think people should know that they won't get from just reading your posts?
If so, what is it?
I'm possibly even more frightening in person...

What color(s) do you prefer to wear?
I have a winter complexion, so I wear dark colors. Black, gray, green, and blue.

What do you like to collect?
Don't collect anything really, unless you count books, DVDs, and computer games.

How many avatars do you have?
My standard avatar, plus I had one made for cat-muffin week, and I have one of the generic clones from when we did that a year or so ago. So, 3 that I remember.

Will you ever attend GenCon?
Probably. The major difficulty I have is that I'd have to book a hotel room so far in advance, I don't know what my work schedule is going to look like when it rolls around.

What type of chocolate do you prefer?
Tossup between milk chocolate and 60% dark.

What type and how many pets do you have?
I have two cats.

Do you enjoy watching the Weather Channel? :smalltongue:
My TV isn't connected to any sort of receiver. I use it to watch DVDs and that's it.

1977? What happened that year.
One of my brothers was conceived.

If you could say a single event started the Renaissance, which event would it be?
The most significant even that started the spread of new ways of thinking would probably be the invention of the printing press with movable type.

Have you ever played the Elder Scrolls games? If yes, which one is your favourite?
The only one I ever played was Oblivion. It was kind of neat, and I liked the customization, but the leveling process was so bassackwards... And I'm given to understand by other who have played the other games in the series that that particular feature is not unique to that game.

What genre of books are your favourite?
Fantasy/adventure and sci-fi.

Do you read often?
I do.

What was the last book you finished?
The Cat Who Walks Through Walls by Heinlein.

What's your favourite book of all time?
I've read a lot of books that I've enjoyed over the years, but I'm gonna give it to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

gw's Questions of Duplicitous Intent

1. Do you hold grudges? If so, for how long?
Yeah, but usually only until I get bored of fantasizing about that person's demise in different horrific ways.

2. What's your favorite band/musician?
Pink Floyd

3. Do you like juice? If so, what is your favorite kind of juice. If not, what would you rather drink?
I drink a lot of apple juice.

4. Which do you prefer, wool or cotton?
Cotton is cooler, which is important where I live.

5. Have you ever owned a slinky?
A long, long time ago...

6. If you could take on the mantle of an established comic-book character, which one would you choose? That is, if you could become Batman, Superman, Mysterio, Magneto, Nite Owl, etc., which would you want to become?
Assuming I could stay in the real world where nobody knew I had the abilities? I see a lot of potential for fun with Mystique's power...

7. Which is your favorite meal of the day?
Dinner is the only time I ever get steak.

8. Do you eat a lot of snacks?
I do not.

9. What is your favorite restaurant?
I've been to far too many in my lifetime to pick one, and it depends on what I'm in the mood for anyway. The Mid-City Grill in JC is pretty tasty and is associated with good times in my memory. I ate at an amazing steakhouse (Texas Land and Cattle, or something like that) when I was in Dallas a couple weeks ago. The cheese biscuits at Red Lobster are awesome, even if the rest of the food isn't particularly noteworthy. Steak'n'Shake is always great, but I think they pulled out of my state a few years ago - haven't seen any around here since my college days.

10. Who was the most recent person you talked to in person?
I've slept since then.

11. What was the last thing you said to that person?
See previous answer.

12. Which of the following two words do you think makes a sentence creepier when added to the end: 'ladies' or 'hard'?
Hard

13. What do you think of when you read the word 'fishmember?'
the South Park episode with the gay fish joke

14. Do you like haiku?
It can be okay. When I write poetry I usually don't like to restrict my rhythm in such ways, though.

15. If you had a choice between zombies or aliens destroying humanity, which would you choose?
Zombies are probably less dangerous, but I might be able to wrangle a reward for selling out my species to the aliens...

16. Sufficiently advanced aliens visit earth and say they'll change just one thing about you. It can be anything at all. What would you choose?
I'm not omnipotent. This should be remedied.

17. Do you think aliens from another planet ever actually visit Earth?
I think if they did, they'd take one look at humanity and slaughter us all out of mercy, pity, and disgust.

18. Do you prefer to control a project from beginning to end, always repair the same flaw in someone else's project, choose to leave well enough alone, or some other mode of creation I haven't figured out here?
Hmm...of those three options, probably leave well enough alone. I'm not domineering enough to always insist on being in control, and I get frustrated when I'm constantly fixing the same bloody mistake.

19. You could build your dream house within five miles of your current home. What goes into it?
The water table around here is too high for me to build my dream home, since I would want to tunnel and build underground. At least one hot tub big enough for me to get into, state of the art kitchen and office, I suppose a nice theater for entertaining guests, and a security system that neutralizes unauthorized intruders.

20. I give you a seed; you water it with your favorite bit of poetry. What sprouts from it?
A wild almond tree.

Define "neutralizes unauthorized intruders"

Do you procrastinate?

Let's just say that a sign reading "Trespassers will be shot. Survivors will be shot again." would not go amiss. Not that that's what it would actually do, of course - too much mess to be sure that it's cleaned up properly. There would be traps that make people disappear, though.

Do you procrastinate?
I put procrastinating off until later.

I should clarify. A wild almond tree silhouetted against the moon, with a single raven perched in the crest.
