I was tagged by jamesphillimoresumbrella. It’s been a while since my last experience with these kinds of things, and I got a mail, so I might as well.
1. Always post the rules.
2. Answer the questions of the person who tagged you and write 11 new ones.
3. Tag 11 people and link them.
4. Let them know that they are tagged
1. Favorite books/stories/things to read?
I keep rereading A Memory of Light, mainly because I’m enamored at the how the large scale combat was handled, both in the perspective of the front lines and as one overseeing the battlefield using an impossibly magical portal from the sky that you can fall into. In general it helps with how to drive in the narration and plot into tabletop roleplaying, which is the biggest fun social activity I’ve been doing recently.
Alternatively, I’ve been getting into translations of Japanese Light Novels, which would be classified as low-form literature. Disregarding even that, I tend to gravitate towards swash-buckling fantasy books.
2. A line or a saying that you’re particularly fond of.
Six seasons and a movie!
3. The old standby: dogs or cats?
Cats. You don’t have to walk cats. Savannah cats are best though, because they kinda act like dogs.
4. How do you handle getting lost when you’re travelling from Point A to Point B?
I check my map. I double check my surroundings. I panic. I look at the map again. I look for a local. I look at the map again. I demand directions from a local and threaten with a plague. I decide to stop looking for Point B, and realize that being lost is a sign that I should be going elsewhere, preferably with several nubile maidens, and men with sparkly smiles and Joel McHale’s body.
5. Five minutes of conversation with anyone in the world: who would you want to talk to, and what would you say?
The cast, both current and former, of Community. Basically, I just want to show my appreciation for everything they did, even the infamous Chevy Chase. Despite the departure of several individuals, fans often forget that they are people too, and often regard them negatively. Yes, I just watched all four seasons, and I’m currently overwhelmed by an attachment to these people.
6. A favorite movie (or favorite movies) from your childhood?
I always think nostalgically of Ferngully, despite realizing it wasn’t actually that good when I rewatched it recently. Titanic was my first full frontal, as a child. Oh, and I watched Ninja Scrolls when I was around 6 years old. The wonders these did to my personality, yes.
7. Any siblings?
One blood-related brother, and a blood-related sister. God knows how many pseudo-siblings I’ve had all over the years.
8. Comfort food of choice?
Ice cream and chocolates. Preferably Dairy Queen and chocolate truffles… but I’m not picky. It comes with being relatively poor.
9. Do you think your zodiac sign fits, or is it a vague approximation at best?
But… what is a zodiac? We have the current astrological zodiac, and the Chinese zodiac, but who knows if there are anything else the world has already forgotten. Besides, zodiacs tend to be a hit or miss, with descriptions often just being vague, broad descriptions that basically just become self-fulfilling in our identities, not dissimilar to self-diagnosis of psychological illnesses.
10. Do you have any habits/tricks/rituals/eldritch ceremonies/dread sacrifices to elder gods to help you get started on writing/drawing/work?
I am a terrible procrastinator. There’s that bit that I have to, inch by inch, slowly sell my soul to the devil so I can work. I tend to slowly piece everything first in my head, then make a small guideline aided by the spirits of the departed before working. Lastly, before I start working, in the absence of a spark of inspiration, I would sacrifice the still-beating heart of my lover. Recently, this hasn’t been done, as I just realized that my most recent lovers and recipients of affection do not have beating hearts.
11. If you could get away with never having to do one household chore ever again, which would it be?
Folding clothes. I suck at it horribly. I also dislike cleaning dishes, but I can reduce that by reducing the number of times I eat anyway.
At this point, I will obviously break the rules because as I don’t tumblr much, nor do I even know 11 people that are on tumblr. I would not even bother to tag the next victims, or make 11 questions, lest I am prodded to do so.
