Gender to be rated: (this means, do you want to be rated as a girl character? a guy? both? don't care?) don’t care
Height: 5’3
Hair: light brown

(personality questions - NOTE: when you answer these questions, PLEASE provide reasons why you answered the way you did)

Do you fear death? No. Death is just a natural part of life. I’m not afraid of what’s going to come after I do—I’m more nervous about how I’m going to achieve that state. That doesn’t mean, of course, that I’m just going to recklessly throw myself over a rolling lava pit for no reason. You give me a good reason and I’ll do it.

Are you overly concerned about being the best or competition with others? No. Too much to worry about. And a pain in the ass.

Do you often get afraid? No. If that’s one thing I can say about myself—it’s that I despise fear so I work and work and work until I nullify my fear. Being afraid is crippling. I hate being afraid.

Do you depend on others or do you prefer to work solo? I prefer to go solo. Not because I think I’ll do so much better on my own—but just because I don’t like group politics and dynamics. I prefer to work alone. If I fail, I have no one to blame but myself.

Do you have a large Ego or are you overly Arrogant? God, I hope not.

Do you prefer to be directly in the chaos or somewhere on the outside? I think there are definet pros to both. In all the chaos you lose yourself in the adrenaline. It’s all about fighting, moving—it’s all on instinct. You’re not worrying about anything else. But on the outside, you can swoop in for defense. You can watch the progress, see who needs a hand. You can further watch what other enemies are doing—not just what the ones fighting are doing. I would want to be able to handle both. Not at the same time obviously—but I would like the skill to do both.

Do you thrive in chaos or would you prefer peace? Chaos. I am a restless person. If things get quiet, I get to feeling trapped. I hate that. I would rather always be ‘doing’.

How do you feel about love and romance? I have never been very successful when it comes to romance. I’m not very good around people. And I always feel shy around guys. I hate that—makes me feel vulnerable. So I get to where I close off that side of myself. Love is not the most important thing in the world. I had it once and I lost it. Now I move on.

Do you feel sad or guilty at the suffering of others? Yes. I do have compassion in that area. Sometimes the suffering is so huge that you feel overwhelmed…like you can’t do anything about it. And other times you find one person who suffers so much it seems impossible. I only feel guilty if I’ve caused the suffering or—if I can’t help fix it. Well, so I guess I do feel sad and guilty about the sufferings of others.

Does the idea of killing someone strike you at all? No. If they’re got it comin’, they’ve got it comin’. I can say, of course, that sure—I could kill someone. But I’ve found that at that moment—when you’re looking at him or her with a weapon in hand…..you find out what kind of person you are real quick. I don’t believe in wanton slaughter….but if someone deserves it then I have no qualms about it.

Rate your mood on a scale of 1-10, 1 being thoroughly depressed, and 10 being happy and joyful. Heh. Four maybe. Or five. I'm rough. I’m a realist. Kind of a pessimist. Kind of cynical.

Rate your daily energy and activeness on a scale of 1-10, 1 being sluggish and tired, 10 being extremely hyper. about five or six. I stay active but I’m not ‘hyper’.

Do you consider yourself, Calm, Chaotic or Somewhere In Between? Somewhere inbetween. It really depends on the situation and what mood I happen to be in. If someone were to—oh say—hurt my best friend…I’d go crazy. But if someone steals my soup from the microwave I stay calm. I’m just annoyed. Maybe I’m passive-aggressive. I do think about wringing their neck. I just don’t do it. And that’s the important thing. :]

Are you prone to violence? I have a temper. But I don’t just run around and hit people in the face whenever I want to. If I get into a fight—it’s usually my own fault. Like I can’t keep my mouth shut and I get really sarcastic. I guess, again—it really depends on the situation.

Do you trust others? Nope. I find that, with people, you should earn their trust and vice versus. Just trusting people gets you fucked over. People take advantage of you.

Pick One: "In association with others I am.... A. Aloof. B.Very Social C. Avoidant D. Neutral A. Aloof

Would you prefer doing something for a righteous cause or for personal gain? Righteous cause. I’d rather save the world than win money. It would feel more important to me. It would feel like I've accomplish more. Because hey—without the world—you’d have no money to spend. So there.

Are you overly shy, very bold or somewhere in between? In a fight I get really hot and very bold. With new people, I am shy and my hands go cold. With my friends, it fluxuates. Sometimes I hate being in the larger groups. And sometimes I’m okay with it.

Shortly summarize your goals in life: Uh….I want to be a world traveler. This is something I’ve wanted for a long time. I don’t know how I will really achieve that goal…but that’s what I want. I want to be a nomad. No ties. Nothing to hold me down. The wandering life.

What is your greatest fear in life? That I will become a slave to monotony. Or that one day, I’ll be afraid of everything I’ve worked hard to become un-afraid of.

What is your greatest goal in life? World traveler.

Would you call yourself a Megalomaniac? No. I have not the money, troops, and frankly, not the motivation. Plus—how stressful would it be to be in complete power? You’d always be worrying about some hero for the people coming and killing you in your sleep.

Do you prefer constant attention? God, no.

How important are material objects to you? I have one or two things that I love. Like…my computer. I built it myself. And that’s my one favorite object. But if I had to give it up for some better reason, that would be okay. It’s just a thing, after all. Things can be replaced.

Chose an Obsession: A. Love , B. Power , C. Wealth , D. Peace/Life E. Chaos/Death Uh….I guess ‘E’. Though I think my obsession would be more Chaos than death. Like I said, I’m a restless person.

Choose a level of mental stability on a scale of 1-10 , 1 being thoroughly insane, 10 being very sane. Four. Yay…uh…I’m not sane, but I don’t have it nearly as bad a schizophrenic. I feel bad for them, what a terrifying existence.

Briefly classify yourself, give a stereotype or social "Group" to place yourself in. Ah…well. I guess I was always in the ‘group’ that was made up of people who weren’t in a real ‘group’. My group was always a mix of people from all sorts of classes but never had a real label. I guess for the most part---I hung out with computer/internet/anime/video game/music junkies. Of course, I could never afford to be a ‘real’ gamer. But I knew about computers and internet and anime and some video games.

(FF related)

What's your favourite FF game? Why? Final Fantasy VII. And yay, I’ve received flack for digging Final Fantasy VII. They have said I’m just ‘posing’ or that I only liked it because the graphics were new. I haven’t played the ones before it. I got a used Playstation for $30 off a friend of mine when I was…12 or 13, I think. Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, and Tekken were the first games I ever played. Some people have said I just have a nostalgia with it because it was my first game. None of that it true. I’ve played plenty of other games since then—and all the Final Fantasy games that have come out since then and I always come back to Cloud and Sephiroth. And the Turks (yay Reno!). And Tifa and company. And those goddamn chocobos. And Knights of the Round. And the WEAPONs. Yay….you get the picture.

What's your favourite FF character? Why? Cid Highwind. He’s such a fucking hardass. He’s flies an airship. Fights hard. He’s rough, scrubby, and damn good-looking. He likes tea. He’s hilarious. He’s a real manly sort of guy. He could teach someone all about mechanics [and I like to learn]. He’s an all-around awesome character. I really wish there would have been more of him in Advent Children.

Least favourite FF game? Why? Final Fantasy VIII. In all the games I’ve played, I have never despised the two leads so much as I despised Rinoa and Squall. Squall spent all his time whining. (I can say that for Cloud, he may have been kinda mopey but at least he didn’t bitch about everything.) If you asked me to pick a favorite character from FFVIII, I wouldn’t be able to really answer you. None of the six main characters caught my interest. Quistis seemed to be the only one with a brain. Although at least Irvine had a personality. Seifer just pissed me off. He was funny at first. Always picking on Zell and stuff and being obnoxious but then the whole, “Oh, I’m a knight of the sorceress” bullshit just totally shot him down. And the sorceress thing could have been cool---but then they involved Rinoa. I was hoping through the entire game that she would die. I hated her more than I hated Aeris—which is saying something—because I loathed Aeris. Her and Squall just ruin the game for me. I like the bits where you get to play as other characters. Like Zell or Laguna. I like Laguna. He’s a nice guy.



Least favourite FF character? Why? Rinoa. Easily. She was pathetically helpless. Her attacks sucked. And even when she gets her sorceress powers—they suck. She had hardly any personality as a character—just one big magic-using, female lead, stereotype. She was pitiful. And I can’t stand pitiful characters. I would rather respect a character and still not like them rather than pity them. Like Aeris—from FFVII—I didn’t like her. I thought she was annoying. But she had some badass and very helpful Limit Breaks. So I respected her as a character—but I still didn’t like her. Rinoa was just pathetic. And The Great Love That is Squall and Rinoa got old, really fast.

Evidently the girl was really popular, though I can’t understand why. But then, I am not a romance fan. And this game was definetly a love story. And love stories bore me to tears. The Great Love drowned out the other dramatic elements of the plot. Like the Sorceress, for instance. And it overshadowed any development from the other characters. Sure, we learn that Irvine isn’t such a cocky sharpshooter as he wants to be (and why would you want to shoot a sorcerous? I mean—come on! She’s a freakin’ sorceress!) and that yes, Zell—you were adopted….it just seems like with all the attention that Rinoa and Squall got—the other characters were do for a little time as well.

Pictures. Gah. I hate this part.
