If you were to describe yourself with one word, what would it be?

What is most important to you in the world?
Hmm, at the moment? Trying to stay alive and figure out what the heck I'm supposed to be doing with my "destiny."

Would you help someone who needed it while passing?

Are you very observant?
Eh, kinda.

How innocent/naive can you be?
*snerk* I think I've lost pretty much all of the innocent bit. Naive... I dunno. Not really.

Can you entertain yourself easily?
Sure. Daydreaming's kept me sane, I swear.

How well do you get along with others?
Most people have me pegged for weird, I have a few friends who I get along with pretty well.

What was the longest time you had a friend?
Most of the people I thought were friends turned out to be "friends"... aka not really friends at all. The rest I'm not real sure about I guess due to paranoia from the rest, but Frei is pretty cool (pronounced "Fray" by the way). Not every day a guy will find a place for you to live, even if it's a glorified storage room in his grandma's house.

Do you have someone who knows you inside out?
No, but I wouldn't mind if Asura did.

How short is your temper?
It's pretty hard to piss me off.

Can you let go of grudges easily?
If I can get away from the person preferably permanently, then sure.

Do you read?

Do you watch TV?
When there's one available.

Do you collect anything?
Not really, kinda hard to do that when you're never sure about your living situation. And right now, I've got bigger fish to fry. Hmm... crap... fish sounds good, maybe I'll ask Asura if he wants to get some for dinner.

How long do you stay interested in something?
For as long as I stay interested in it? xP

If you collected, would it be for interest or profit?
Interest, never really had much money and now I don't really need it.

Do you know your parents/creator?
Never met my dad, just a name on a child support check. My mom was a great and beautiful woman but she died of cancer a while ago.

What is your birthday?
August 13th. Epic, huh? Love that number.

Do you have any siblings?

Ever have to fight for what you believe in?
I kinda wonder if I'm going to have to now. Asura's the one who's done the real fighting lately.

When did you move out on your own?
When Mom died about a couple years ago.

When did you REALLY mature?
I'm not sure I really have yet... I wonder if I ever will? Most so-called grownups don't impress me at all... and Asura... is so different. I think I'd prefer to gain some wisdom and still keep interested in whatever I want, even if some people think I'm being immature for it.

Did you have many friends?
Not really...

Any action you regret?

What is a memory you treasure?
Mom in the kitchen putting cookies in the cookie jar, she'd just made them. Smelled so good, she could do a kickass oatmeal chocolate chip that didn't taste health foody at all... and her hair was really pretty that day.

Do you have a dream partner?
Gee, I think you can say that's Asura.

Do you believe you seek someone like your parents (or creator)?
LOL umm no.

Do you have one night stands?
Asura's my first anything... and not a one night stand. >_>

What feature is most attention grabbing for you?
Uhh, face I guess. Piercings or accessories I notice too, like the glasses Asura wears a lot. Hot. :3

What MUST someone have for you to consider them?
Uh, well, they gotta be a guy. Never did like girls... but I guess if I found one attractive I'd have to rethink things. But nah, I have Asura now, what the hell else do I need?

Older, younger, same age as you?
Doesn't really matter.

How do you feel about settling down?
Would be nice.

How many dates before you go to bed with someone?
Never been on a date...

How do you handle rejection?
I'm usually the one doing the rejecting. ^^;;

How many times did you stop something before it developed?
A few, there's been some girls... and well that one asshole Marcus just can't seem to take "no" for an answer.

Have you settled down and if so for how long?
I'd like to when this is all over, assuming everything hasn't gone to complete hell.

Any Children?
Uhh no.

Any Grandchildren?
Fff. Right.

What do you love most about your partner?
Everything... but something I appreciate a whole lot is his directness.

Any petnames?
The question makes me laugh just trying to think up a pet name for Asura. "Muffin?" Bahahaha...

How many relationships have you been in?
Just this one.

Have you ended any?

Has your heart been broken?

Any loves you cannot have?
Brad Pitt? Nah, seriously, I've got all I want.

Do you believe in true love?

Have you ever died?
Not yet.

Can you even die?

Have you seen someone die?
Yeah... I was there when Mom died.

Have you killed someone?
Umm no.

Have you had someone killed?
Heh, well I guess Asura would kill for me now if he had to... but no.

What makes you truly happy?
He's not a "what," he's a "who." Asura. I've had a lot of suck in my life... before him, it was Mom, she really did try.

If you could, what is one thing you would spend your life doing?
*insert dirty thoughts here*

Do you have a job, if so what is it?
I got fired from my last burger-flippin' job for stuff I didn't do. My "job" now is... ridiculously fantasy movie cliché... and yet totally real. And totally confusing.

Have you ever gone insane?
Nah... not yet, anyways.

Did you ever feel as if you were the only sane one in the world?

If you had a choice, would you live a calm eternal life, or live a wild short life?
I love how calm Asura is all the time, it'd be nice to live a nice long life in that kind of calm. I do like having fun in the more adventurous sense, but if I have to pick? Chillin' forever sounds nice.
