AS Afflatus - Issue 18 - Reminders & Point System

Sun Dec 02, 2018 6:57 am

Image x
Just a couple of reminders for the Afflatus! x
1. When nominating a writing piece for the Featured Writing, keep in mind that nominations should come from the Share Your Writing forum (or the Fanfiction forum). Nominations can also come from any prompt event held and from the NaNoWriMo event. Nominations can also come from house run prompt threads. As long as the nomination is not from a role-play forum, it is fair game. The purpose is to shine light on individuals' personal work and stories, rather than role-plays. Make sure to include a direct link to the post, and also mention the title and user.

2. Please submit all of the following through the Google form, in order to make point keeping easier.
- Dear Stag Submissions
- Prompt Suggestions
- Featured Writing Nominations
- Anonymous Compliments and Critiques
- Article Submissions
- Suggestions for the Afflatus (new segments, activity ideas, etc.) or the site

3. When submitting an anonymous compliment, please include username and link to their profile. I notify these users after each issue is posted so that they know they've received a compliment and it makes it easy to track them down in case usernames are changed!

4. When posting submissions to the thread (character interviews and prompts), please make sure the words Character Interview or Prompt are there in the title post. It's not a big deal if forgotten, however. Also, please post each character interview and prompt submission separately. If you submit three things, submit them all on separate posts for easier point keeping!

5. Remember, you can post up to two (2) character interviews per issue.

6. Please keep in mind the fact that we are not professional therapists when submitting your Dear Stags. We love offering tips and trying to help out, but do keep in mind that we are not professionals and some problems may be better discussed with trusted adults or professionals.

7. For Article Submissions, they can be about anything. Articles submitted for Writing Tips or Life Tips is always appreciated. When submitting an article, please link to a Google Doc that can be edited. Make sure to include your user (and link it) and house on the doc so that we can award points and give credit for your work!

8. Going forward, at the end of the month I will post the following on the thread: "Any posts made after this will not count towards points." I will be trying to stay consistent with this and plan on doing this on the last day of every month by 11:30 PM CST time. Please note that if this doesn't happen for a day (or more) then you can assume it's fair game to submit more things to the thread, since it is likely taking some time to get the next issue out. The Google form, however, will be closed the night before the next issue.

            • What are some unconscious quirks your character performs? Is there a reason?
              Luther has two signature quirks that happen whenever the man feels unsettled; it's either cracking the joints in his fingers or chewing the inside of his bottom lip. These are habits which got carried over after Luther's transformation into a vampire and while his nibbles often end up drawing blood, he finds the quirk simply too familiar to get rid of it. Luther is also known to gesticulate a lot with his arms if he's excited.

              How long can they go without showering before feeling gross?
              Not too long. Despite growing up in a rather simple community who didn't value hygiene as people do now, Luther has always been keen on taking care of himself. Due to both his occupation and nature, he feels good about being clean, as well as approachable by other people; his good looks and tidy attire are the qualities that others seem to notice the most. If it's an absolute must, however, Luther can go a few days without showering but this almost always leaves him irritated and uncomfortable in his own skin.

              Do they leave their clothes on a floor or chair? Or neither?
              As mentioned earlier, Luther is a very tidy man. His home is always in top condition and finding anything out of its place is uncommon. His clothes always go into the wardrobe standing in his bedroom as he retires for the day -- even if he doesn't sleep, Luther doesn't want to ruin his clothes by wrinkling them.

              Do they sleep with the bedroom door open or closed?
              Closed. His actual bedroom is hidden deep within the house and the door is designed to look just like one of the many bookshelves present in Luther's house. If he left it open constantly, the whole idea of hiding the room from everyone would be useless; the man doesn't like when others freely explore his home as he prefers to keep some secrets to himself. The coffin present in the middle of his bedroom is just proof enough that some things are better left concealed and not shown to every single person. He feels safer this way.

              What animal would they be?
              Definitely a feline. Most likely bigger than a house cat, but not as large or heavy as a tiger. The man is a cunning and graceful one, often reminding others of a jaguar or a panther. He would be either of those.

              If they could only eat one thing for an entire month, what would it be?
              Luther misses the ability to eat real food and not get sick because everything tastes like cardboard or poison. His favourite dish back in the day used to be steak accompanied by a glass of red wine. He is truly prepared to give anything just to be able to taste it again. Luther had used to be a big fan of sweets, even if they were a rarity in his mother's home. Though, he stills craves a small piece of chocolate every now and then.

              Would your character want to know the exact time and date of their death?
              He doesn't care too much about the possibility of dying anytime soon. Luther has already gone through many years filled with nothing exciting and wouldn't mind looking death in the face; while he isn't afraid of dying, the man wouldn't want to know what exactly could be his end. Knowing the date and time would give him a bit of closure and the possibility to say goodbye to those he cares about but it's not something he absolutely must know. Plainly speaking, Luther isn't exactly overjoyed by the possibility of dying.

              Would your character want to know how they die?
              No. There isn't a lot of things which could kill a vampire of his experience and power; while receiving a stake through the heart or submitting to another one of his kind doesn't seem too exciting or unusual, Luther wouldn't like to know if he would lay on the ground bleeding for hours or be humiliated by another creature of the night as they bled him dry and left him for dead. He'd much rather know the date of his death.

              What is your character's favourite mythological creature?
              Definitely the Lindworm. He has always been a fan of reptiles and, despite all associations that people have when it comes to vampires, Luther would much more like to keep a snake or a lizard as a companion instead of having something else that would make him adhere to the ideas that society has come up with.

              What is their favourite song?
              Luther finds it easy to appreciate and welcome new styles of music as the time goes by and he stays unchanged for centuries. There were many different songs that he has loved and appreciated over the years -- currently, it must be Hugh Dillon's Friends Of Mine; a simple piece that he relates to due to his past and all of the friends he has lost over the years because they couldn't accept him or the fact that he was different.

              Does your character procrastinate or stay on top of things?
              Stay on top of things. Luther has a lot of time on his hands but he dislikes being lazy and doing nothing when there's a world to explore and get his things done quickly. Very few people would dare describe him as a procrastinator and this opinion is justified; Luther rarely ever allows things to pile up and prefers to have a lot of busy days instead of relaxing for hours and feeling miserable afterwards. He's an active man.

              What does your character indulge themselves on?
              Reading. Luther adores losing himself in a good book for hours and realising that he has wasted days just sitting inside of his home and reading. He also likes walking around and wandering around the city until the sun is already beginning to rise above the horizon. Luther is a curious young man who likes exploring and learning new things about his surroundings, even if that can easily get him in trouble with the locals.

              How do they react when they're injured?
              Despite his superhuman abilities, Luther has very strong instincts. Once his injuries begin seeping his power from him, the man becomes a rather primal being, who can do anything if it means keeping himself safe. When the situation calls for it, he can turn on his friends or allies and injure those close to him -- his mind shuts off during such occurrences and it can take a couple of hours for Luther to remember what happened during the encounter. He's not a big fan of running away from violence and likes to stand his ground but the regret of hurting those he cares for is always stronger than the feeling of failure if he does run away.

              How does your character celebrate their birthday?
              He doesn't. Luther is already more than a couple of hundred years old and he simply doesn't see a reason to keep track of his age by throwing parties and inviting his friends. He usually spends those days quietly.

              What was their first kiss like?
              Luther has always been a romantic. Wooing both men and women was always his forte, no matter what the situation was. His first kiss had been with a girl he had quickly fallen in love with back in the days when he was still a human and not a vampire. It had been romantic and cheesy but he will always remember it as the most perfect experience of his life; even if the relationship didn't work out in the end, it still became one of his fondest memories. No other kiss has come anywhere close to being better than that particular one.

            • What are some unconscious quirks your character performs? Is there a reason?
              He smiles. No matter how unsettling or difficult a situation might become, Elijah is known to greet almost everything with a smile on his lips. The elf rarely ever shows anything that might indicate his uneasiness as the archer simply nods in understanding as things go downhill. His smiles are usually relaxed and almost robotic, coming to him as an easy response to whatever life might throw at him. A sign that Elijah is worried might also be the tapping of his fingertips against solid objects, creating a rhythm meant to ease his nerves -- this only happens whenever there are other unnerved people surrounding him, though.

              How long can they go without showering before feeling gross?
              Like most of his kind, Elijah is a very clean person. Being an elf, his skin and body register dust and grime somewhat differently than other creatures; while bathing every single day would be bothersome, he does it because of how relaxed the actions make him. At most, he could go a few days without cleaning himself.

              Do they leave their clothes on a floor or chair? Or neither?
              On the chair. Living inside a tent, he doesn't possess a wardrobe to keep his clothes in and leaving them on the floor goes against his morals; Elijah always neatly folds his clothing and leaves it on the chair or stacked in piles in the back of his quarters. Even his dirty clothes are never left lying around chaotically.

              Do they sleep with the bedroom door open or closed?
              Both. Due to his living quarters being a simple tent inside of a forest, Elijah doesn't really feel the need to shield himself away from other members of his clan. On the rare days when he's forced to spend a night in a tavern or some kind of an inn, he always locks his door and keeps it secured in the event of being found by his kind's enemies. Having a room all to himself makes Elijah feel safe even if he's not at home.

              What animal would they be?
              He would be something fast and graceful. Elijah's nature reminds people of either a large, majestic buck or a vicious hawk, who's able to keep his gaze on everything. He would most likely end up as a deer.

              If they could only eat one thing for an entire month, what would it be?
              Elijah is a big fan of berries. It's one of his favourite things to eat; while it's not unusual for someone like him to live easily while surviving on vegetables and fruit, he wouldn't say no to eating the berries he can find in the clan's lands. As for beverages, he wouldn't say no to a few glasses of sweet red wine.

              Would your character want to know the exact time and date of their death?
              Not really. Elijah is in sync with nature and most of the things happening around in the forest -- he's not afraid of dying and has already come to terms with knowing that it's an inevitable end to his life. One way or another, he knows that no one is going to stay alive forever; Elijah values his own life and doesn't like wasting it by doing meaningless things but he's also not a big fan of being solemn and constantly thinking that he's not immortal. Death is a natural thing but he doesn't want to know when it's going to claim him.

              Would your character want to know how they die?
              Yes. While knowing exactly the date and time of his death isn't important to him, Elijah would like to know just how painful or torturous it would be to leave this world. He's not immune to pain and wishes for a quick and easy passing into the spirit realm; staying conscious as he slowly bleeds to death is a rather unsettling thought to him. And while his tolerance for pain is high, he doesn't wish to suffer for too long.

              What is your character's favourite mythological creature?
              Dragons. While he had lived through the ages when dragons had been considered to be the true rulers of the world, those days have long since passed and Elijah was left with fond memories of how elves and dragons used to work together in order to keep the world around them alive. He'd love to see a dragon again.

              What is their favourite song?
              His taste in music hasn't changed much over the years. One of his favourite pieces is still Lanagan's Ball, an old instrument song that his clan perform whenever there's an event or a grand celebration going on.

              Does your character procrastinate or stay on top of things?
              He's a very active person. Elijah doesn't like to procrastinate and make excuses instead of acting. When there's something that needs to be done, he's usually the first one to spring into action and help those in need or just finish doing what others ask of him. People sometimes try to take advantage of this quality but even if he ends up doing a lot of work for someone in exchange for nothing, Elijah doesn't mind putting his abilities to good use. He's actually quite fond of helping other people feel happier about themselves.

              What does your character indulge themselves on?
              Whenever his mind becomes too loud, Elijah likes to spend a few quiet moments near the river and clear his thoughts. He's fond of walking around the forest during the night and looking at the magical creatures who come to play outside once everything quiets down and they are left alone. Like many elves, he's also a creative person and is especially fond of music -- Elijah loves creating music and playing for others.

              How do they react when they're injured?
              He dislikes making people feel concerned about him. If the situation isn't too dire, he'll usually try to keep his injuries a secret from others and take care of everything himself. But if he possesses serious wounds, Elijah isn't the person to turn away offered help. While elves are known to be proud creatures, he values his life more than he does his pride; Elijah doesn't want to die because of his stubbornness or pride.

              How does your character celebrate their birthday?
              When his family was still alive, they would complete a simple ritual and spend most of the day together talking about Elijah's past adventures and his hopes for the future. But after they died, he's not too fond of spending the day reminiscing about his memories and lingering on thoughts about his family. Nowadays, his birthday is just any other day to him and Elijah has already forgotten to keep track of the years he has.

              What was their first kiss like?
              Intimate actions are practically sacred for their kind; elves don't fool around as humans do and they create bonds for life. Even a small feat like kissing is considered a serious proclamation of love and Elijah hasn't really found the need to offer his body and soul to anyone in the clan. He hasn't kissed anyone yet.

1. Who wants kids and how many?
"Pretty sure Nate is the one that wants kids. I'm not exactly sure how many. I mean, I'm not opposed to the idea. Just would like all of our lives to get into a sort of...normal...spot before we do think about adopting."

2. Who looks the best in a tux/gown?
"Nate. One hundred percent."

3. Who is the dog person and who is the cat person?
"Nate is the dog guy and I'm the cat. Probably because all of Xavier and Serena's cats love me."

4. Who is the worst cook?
"Uh, probably me. I mean I think we are both good at cooking, but Nate makes meals that are more healthy than what I make."

5. Who made the first move?
"Me, both times. The first time Nate probably doesn't remember cause he was pretty high on his Xanax. But the first time that he remembers, I made the first move."

6. Who is the worst liar?
"I don't think either of us are bad at lying. Maybe Nate because he isn't used to this life and I'm pretty confident in my abilities to make up a lie on the spot."

7. Who would (or said) "I love you" first?
"Nate. I've been sort of taking it slow with him. He was the first one to say it."

8. Who hogs the blanket?
"I give Nate the blankets so does that count?"

9. Who kills the spiders?
"Me I suppose."

10. Who is the responsible one?
"I say Nate is a lot more responsible than I am. Because he is always up early and always making food and always remembering to do things and all I want to do every day is just watch him and not get anything done."

11. Who gets jealous the easiest?
"Me. I'm stupid when I get jealous, but yes it's me."

12. Who can wrap presents well?
"Ooh wrapping contest! I'm sure Nate is better because he is kind of the guy to go to for things like that. Probably wrapped every single gift for Serena and Xavier's baby shower."

13. Who is the most romantic?
"Nate is. He is the hopeless romantic as he likes to call himself. I mean he tells me date ideas he would like to do and I make them, but he is the guy that is constantly looking at that stuff."

14. Who is more competitive?
"Nate. He played sports in high school so it isn't unusual for him to be competitive."

15. Who gets embarrassed easily?
"Probably both of us I would think. Because I get embarrassed when people ask personal questions and Nate is just adorable all the time and gets easily flustered."

Gale 'Grey' Lovette
Image
1. What are some unconscious quirks your character performs? Is there a reason?
Gale tends to tick in his right hand whether he uses his pointer and thumb to snap his nails past one another or his thumb and ring finger. The habit formed during his time as a drug addict happening when he'd crave or was in need of a lift. Now, he ticks under stress or when he's thinking of relapsing. They can get worrisome when he starts digging his nails into the palms of his hand and peeling back skin, making it raw making it more of an attack than a quirk.
2. How long can they go without showering before feeling gross?
Gale has gone weeks without showering in the past. Now that he's healthier and in a committed relationship he can't go over four days without being told he stinks or thinks of showering.
3. Do they leave their clothes on a floor or chair? Or neither?
Mostly, his clothes are found on the floor. He's a slob.
4. Do they sleep with the bedroom door open or closed?
Usually, the door his open unless Rowan closes it. He's usually the last one in at night and never closes the door behind himself. He's too tired to care.
5. What animal would they be?
Gale would be a weasel. In my eyes, his nature can be categorized by the little rat like creature.
6. If they could only eat one thing for an entire month, what would it be?
Bacon cheeseburgers stacking with lettuce, onions, pickles, and mayo.
7. Would your character want to know the exact time and date of their death?
No. He's nearly died in the past because of liver failure.
8. Would your character want to know how they die?
No, not with the change he's made in his life.
9. What is your character's favorite mythological creature?
He doesn't believe in mythological things.
10. What is their favorite song?
Silversun Pickups - Panic Switch.
It's gotten him through many hardships and dark mental places.
11. Does your character procrastinate or stay on top of things?
He's a major procrastinator when it comes to facing a challenge, problem solving, or emotional expression.
12. What does your character indulge themselves on?
Gale really applies himself to his now chosen career as a tattoo artist since he's become clean. He sketches from time to time to keep his hands busy and away from his old self-destructive habits
13. How do they react when they're injured?
He'll either panic and become fearfully childish or act like everything's fine. He's either one extreme or the other. There's no in between.
14. How does your character celebrate their birthday?
Gale doesn't care for cake or anything like that. He just wants his girl in privacy.
15. What was their first kiss like?
He doesn't remember his first kiss. He remembers the first time he kissed Rowan which wasn't exactly right but none of his recent past he cares to remember.

30 -|- The Tragic Lovers -|- 29
----"I can't believe we're doing this." The man's grumble rumbled from deep within his throat as he followed his wife into the small room where a man was setting up a small video camera.
----She glanced back at him, navy eyes flashing with amusement as her attentive gaze picked out the lines of stress on his weathered features. "Just smile and answer the questions," she purrs, slipping her slim fingers against his. "Surely you've done worse."
----"Debatable." He tugged on the irritatingly tight tie that was wrapped around his neck - ran straight into her as she stopped walking with a sigh.
----"Relax," she scolded, spinning around to push his black hair back. "It's just an article on healthy couples." Her eyes twinkled, tugging on his collar until his lips hovered over hers. A blush of red swept over his cheeks. "Would you say we're a healthy couple?"
----He swallowed the lump on his throat, eyes roaming over her figure. "...I'd certainly hope so."
----"Likewise." She pecked his lips. "So stop pouting and let's go."

"Let's just hope our boy turns will turn out to be a better cook than his daddy."

5. Who made the first move?
"I believe it was when Alan tried to kiss me after his assignment."
"I can't imagine it was very romantic. I recall being covered in mud and blood."

6. Who is the worst liar?
"Probably Viktoria...someone like her wouldn't be a very good liar."
"Clearly I haven't been caught in a lie, then. Which makes you the worst liar."
"Wait... you-"
"Next question?"

7. Who would (or said) "I love you" first?
"Alan - right before he passed out and fell on top of me."
"I didn't pass out I went unconscious."

8. Who hogs the blanket?
"Her. Every night, I have to yank it away from her or be cold for the rest of the night."
"You could always just sleep on the couch."

9. Who kills the spiders?
"Vikky. The woman works out in the gardens so often she gives them names."
"You get used to having spiders in your purse and car when you work outside."

10. Who is the responsible one?
"I'd have to say Alan...he's the level headed one of us two. I tend to be a bit more..."
"Ditzy?"
"Mhm. But I also know when to pull you back when you become a bit too focused on one thing."

11. Who gets jealous the easiest?
"Viktoria."
"Excuse me? I'm not the one who-"
"Next question?"

12. Who can wrap presents well?
"Me. All of her presents end up wrinkled and in a mess."
"Alan's an OCD riddled perfectionist but it shows in all of his work, and that includes gift wrapping."

13. Who is the most romantic?
"Me. Alan...struggles with his emotions at times. At least expressing them."
"You weren't saying that last night."
"Alan-! There's people here."

14. Who is more competitive?
"Alan. Everything he does he takes so seriously. I took one of our son's nerf guns and shot him in the back and it turned into all out war."
"You ended up winning that one. You two were posted up in the tree fort and shot me down."

15. Who gets embarrassed easily?
"You can't be embarrassed if you don't have an ego!"
"Are you saying I'm big headed?"
"I'm saying you're confident, dear."
"Oh. All right."
"Big headed."
"Okay, enough of this nonsense. Interview over."

1. Who wants kids and how many?
Neither have really discussed the possibility of it, since Echo still has a ton of ground to cover before he's in a state that he'd even consider bringing a child into his home. That being said, he already has names picked out if they ever decided to adopt a baby (and if one wanted it, the other would quickly cave). They're all floral.
2. Who looks the best in a tux/gown?
I'm sure Lyn says it's Echo, while Echo says it's Lyn. However, Lyn is blind as a bat without his glasses so that automatically makes Echo right, sorry I don't make the rules.
3. Who is the dog person and who is the cat person?
They're both generally dog people but personality wise, Lyn is definitely the cat person and Echo is definitely the dog person.
4. Who is the worst cook?
Neither is a bad cook, but Echo spent a lot of his early twenties indoors tending house so he's experimented with cooking a lot more. He used to be a spotless cook but now that he doesn't have someone breathing down his neck all the time he might get a little wild and spill some salt without cleaning it up immediately. It's anarchy, I know.
5. Who made the first move?
They both had a hand in the first move being made. They'd been months in the making, but nothing really came to pass until Echo gave the green light and Lyn went for it.
6. Who is the worst liar?
Echo, for sure. He was never really one for fibs to begin with, but his time with his ex made it clear to him that it was so much easier to just avoid the consequences of lies. That being said, they're honest with each other, if no one else.
7. Who said "I love you" first?
Verbally? Lyn. Emotionally? Also Lyn. Through their actions? Still Lyn. Echo had a bit of an adjustment period to go through before he remembered that not everyone is going to turn away his affection
8. Who hogs the blanket?
The first thing Echo did when he stopped tip toeing around was relearn how to take up as much space and blanket as he physically can when he's sleeping. Many apologies, Lyn.
9. Who kills the spiders?
If it has more than four legs and doesn't take fall damage, Echo is legally exempt from dealing with it (Lyn).
10. Who is the responsible one?
They're both responsible in their own ways, and they both grew to be responsible adults in different ways. Echo can run a whole household by himself while making sure a group of constantly hungry and loud men are fed and not tracking mud all over his floor. Lyn can direct and lead those same unruly boys and get them working together towards a goal as a team. Coincidentally both are capable of scaring the absolute shit out of them too. As for within their relationship, they both care for and protect one another, neither really takes sole care of the other. It's an equal partnership, no one gets babied.
11. Who gets jealous the easiest?
Echo gets nervous, Lyn gets jealous. Neither will act on their feelings.
12. Who can wrap presents well?
Echo developed perfectionism as a defense mechanisms. He'll get those corners nice and crisp.
13. Who is the most romantic?
Echo is more an idea man when it comes to romance. He's got lists a mile long of things he thinks are romantic, and when his confidence is up he'll act on it. Lyn tends to be the one who does romantic things more often, however.
14. Who is more competitive?
Lyn, for sure, although they're both relatively laid back so it mostly boils down to playful competition. When it comes to serious challenges, Echo tends to back down while Lyn rises to meet them.
15. Who gets embarrassed easily?
Echo is 60% embarrassment and 40% love to give

Ray Hawthorne & Sybil Grace Godfrey
          • Who wants kids and how many?
            xxx"I believe Sybil is the motherly type when it comes to both of us. I never wanted children, seeing as my occupation is much too dangerous for any ideas of settling down to appear in my head. Another important thing to mention is that I am completely infertile, therefore, incapable of having offspring. Even if I wanted to have a legacy of my own, I cannot do so. Thus, I do with what I have and try not to dawdle too much on things I cannot change without the inference of others."
            xxx"I'd love to have children with Ray sometime. He's a kind and generous man, but fate has cursed us to keep our home without the sand of laughter and tiny feet running around the halls. I'm positive that we can find a way to fix his illness and allow our family to grow but I'm not sure if it's going to happen soon. I'd love to have a boy and a girl one day, however."

            Who looks the best in a tux/gown?
            xxx"My friend looks stunning in anything. While some colours compliment her looks more than others, I am certain that any gown or evening dress would make Sybil appear like a queen. Even a simple robe can easily make her stand out."
            xxx"We both look good in high-quality clothing. I've spent my whole life learning how to appear royal and appealing to other people. Ray has the physique needed to make others notice him. It's not easy to ignore him in tight-fitting clothing, especially when darker shades make him appear so... mysterious. Few men can pull off wearing armour as well as he can."

            Who is the dog person and who is the cat person?
            xxx"I prefer to have canines as my guardians and companions. They are loyal and will not disobey their master if trained correctly. As much as I appreciate the grace and beauty of a feline, I do not see any use for them, other than being a friend for those stuck in their houses and living rather dull lives. I value usefulness in the company that I choose to have with me."
            xxx"I love cats! While dogs haven't done anything bad to me, I find myself feeling a bit uneasy when facing a particularly large mutt. I know that most of them are well-trained and only guard those important to them, but a cat would never hurt me as seriously as a dog could. If Ray appreciated smaller dog breeds, I'd think about getting one. Sadly, he doesn't."

            Who is the worst cook?
            xxx"We are both decent in the art of cooking. However, Sybil is more familiar with creating extravagant meals for a group of people and I know how to create a filling dish for a single person. My food also requires fewer ingredients than hers."
            xxx"I think both me and Ray can cook. Being of royal blood, I know how to prepare meals which could make a count feel embarrassed. He's more capable of sustaining himself in the wilderness where you can't ask a hunter to bring you a skinned rabbit. And while my food looks nicer, I think Ray's the one who could make use of his cooking skills more than I can."

            Who made the first move?
            xxx"Sybil did. I may have provoked her confession during a rough time for both of us and she never got a real answer."
            xxx"Me. I never did understand how it happened but I regret spilling my feelings to Ray. It put a thick barrier between us."

            Who is the worst liar?
            xxx"I applaud Sybil's tries to force me into believing her lies. It is honestly amusing to watch how she believes it can work on anyone in the Guild. She has gotten better at it during the years and I am not sure if it is just me rubbing off of her. While her tone is sometimes perfectly emotionless to fool anyone, Sybil's body is very quick to make everyone know that she is trying to lie her way out of a difficult situation. The Princess is certainly not a good liar. She needs a lot of practice."
            xxx"I am. Ray was trained from a young age to lie and make people believe what he wanted them to. The only things I had to hide from others were the bruises and marks I'd get from my father and that didn't give me a lot of skills when it comes to lying. I can fool a couple of people but that's about it. Those closest to me always know when I'm trying to hide something and that often makes me frustrated. I really hate being an open book for everyone to read. I want to get better at lying."

            Who would (or said) "I love you" first?
            xxx"Neither of us were this blunt. To my understanding, we are both dancing around the subject like a pair of fools. I have grown fond of the Princess over the past couple of years but my loyalty to the cause and to the Guild forbids me from creating any personal relationships. I would hate for Lucille's story to repeat itself with the Princess starring in it."
            xxx"We didn't. I feel to shy to ever be this forward with him and I'm sure that Ray doesn't wish to hear those words. It pains me but I respect his debt to the assassins. It's not the first time my heart's been broken and it's definitely not the last."

            Who hogs the blanket?
            xxx"We have never slept together in order to find out the answer. I rarely sleep at night, given that someone has to keep a keen eye on the area. Leaving either of us completely vulnerable would be unacceptable for me as Sybil's guardian."
            xxx"We never had the chance to test it. I somehow imagine that it'd be me to hog everything to keep warm and comfortable. I'm still royalty and I like to feel safe; even if it's only a blanket, it does provide a lot of comfort during the cold nights."

            Who kills the spiders?
            xxx"That would most likely be my duty, given how afraid women seem to be of such creatures. It is quite amusing, really."
            xxx"He would get stuck with doing that. I can't stand anything crawling around inside of my chambers or near me."

            Who is the responsible one?
            xxx"Both of us are. While our responsibility lies in different aspects of our lives, I could not describe Sybil as a careless person; she looks out for herself and those around her, however odd it may sound. The Princess is a compassionate woman and that makes her all the more appealing to the general crowd of France. She will make a spectacular queen one day."
            xxx"We're responsible for different things, really. Ray keeps us alive by sacrificing his own health. I try to make sure that no one innocent gets hurt while trying not to die myself. He's probably more responsible, seeing as how he never misses the tiniest of details and gets to me before I can even sense there's danger nearby. I truly hope the people will accept him."

            Who gets jealous the easiest?
            xxx"Sybil does. While jealousy is an odd emotion that I do not always understand, she has proven me wrong during those countless times when I thought how petty and useless the feeling is. It has driven her to challenge the mightiest of foes and, unfortunately, make a complete fool out of herself at times. However, it does give me and Evelyn a reason to tease her."
            xxx"I do. It's embarrassing, really. Being unable to control my emotions is a curse I loathe constantly with all of my heart."

            Who can wrap presents well?
            xxx"Sybil has a good eye for aesthetics and keeping things neat. While my fingers are more nimble than hers, I have not had enough practice to be certain of my abilities to wrap presents. It is a chore I am not willing to bother learning anytime soon."
            xxx"That would be me. I've had a lot of practice making things appear prettier than they really are. My mother has taught me many things and I've learned a lot from her. She has made me able to see the beauty in the simplest of things and I know how to bring joy to others because of her. Even if I can't help a lot in the war, I can make sure that people still feel happiness."

            Who is the most romantic?
            xxx"I find it difficult to portray my emotions well enough for others to understand. Romance is definitely not my forte."
            xxx"I grew up dreaming of having the perfect wedding and transforming my country into something beautiful with a loving husband by my side. Having been married off to a barbarian and rescued by my best friend, which left my heart even more broken once I realised there was more than friendship between us has taught me that life isn't fair. I've grown up from the romantic person I had used to be, but I still dream someday about changing my life and creating something good out of the shattered girl living inside of me. Hopefully, one day I'll be able to become innocent again. I hope for such a day to come."

            Who is more competitive?
            xxx"I rarely back down from a challenge. It might be my pride as a man and as an assassin, but having people challenge me and boast about being stronger just makes me irritated. I feel satisfaction once they are shrivelling below me and gasping for breath, realising just what kind of a mistake their words had been. I tend to stay out of verbal conflicts but fighting with other people seems to set me on the edge very quickly. It is a flaw I hope to get rid of soon enough. Rather sooner than later."
            xxx"Ray is. I know when to back down, tuck my tail between my legs and run away from someone obviously stronger than me. But he never does; it's almost as if he likes feeling pain if it means coming out on top. Men are the same in this aspect."

            Who gets embarrassed easily?
            xxx"Some things might make it uncomfortable for me but I rarely let it show. Hiding my emotions comes naturally by now."
            xxx"As I'd mentioned earlier, I'm a prisoner to my own feelings. Anyone can read me if they try and it's a bother to even attempt at hiding what I truly feel. Everyone knows about it as soon as I open my mouth to deny their accusations. It's too embarrassing to think about being so incompetent, but I manage. My blush of embarrassment is the easiest to spot, really."
