  • 1. What do you want to do for a career?
    What I’m doing now: ABA early intervention for kids with autism. Maybe I’ll get my master’s one day and become a certified behavior analyst, but it’ll be bittersweet because I won’t get to work with the kids one-on-one anymore.
    2. What's your dream car/transportation?
    I’m not super into cars. I really like my Prius. Something with suicide doors would be cool, I guess.
    3. Do you see yourself getting married?
    My boyfriend and I have had the marriage discussion more than once. We’re waiting until we’re both more stable in life.
    4. Which kind of canned beans are the best? (ranch style, baked, pork 'n beans, black beans, refried...)
    No thank you.
    5. Have you ever been fishing?
    A very very very long time ago. I was like… 6. And I didn’t catch anything.
    6. Have you hung anything on your walls? If so, what?
    There’s lots on my walls; pictures, posters, art. I have lots of rooms.
    7. Do you have any favorite characters you love developing/writing for?
    All of my superhero babs (Longshot, Frostbite, Kinetose, and Ghost). I wish I got to use them in roleplays more. I also have a couple of foils that I like developing together: Mickey&Annie, Daedalus&Thaleia, Julius&Sasha
    8. In your own words, describe your happy place.
    An empty beach, midday and into dusk when the salty breeze rolling off the waves is brisk but not chilling.
    9. Is there a smell or a flavor that brings back good memories?
    Gingerbread will always remind me of my oma.
    10. What time of day do you favor most?
    It depends on where I am, but I love sunsets. I can get down on some nighttime anywhere.
    11. Do you have a favorite genre of book or movie?
    I like horror for both books and movies. Action for just movies.
    12. What's a good book that you read recently and would recommend? Why?
    I’ve only been listening to podcasts lately, but you should totally check out The Adventure Zone! It’s a DnD podcast done by 3 brothers and their dad. The world building, character development, and storytelling is insane.
    Also, if you like reading bad writing on purpose (like me because I’m a huge dork) check out the Steel Donut Collective YouTube channel. They read bad fanfics with voices and stuff. Very fun.
    13. What's a tv show that you have re-watched multiple times?
    3Below!!! I’m a huge nerd for animation, plus Guillermo del Toro is my fave director. I’ve watched the first season (waiting for that sweet sweet part 2) probably 10 times… Maybe more.
    14. What's your favorite classic movie?
    Say Anything is very good. But going even further back, I really like Anchors Aweigh.
    15. If you had a theme song, what would it be?
    A Portrait Of -- Sorority Noise

1. Who confessed their feelings first?
Kokichi, Shuichi was too much of a virgin.

2. Who would throw the other in the pool?
Neither...

3. Who would accidentally set the kitchen on fire while cooking?
Maybe Kokichi

4. Who is the early bird? Who is the night owl?
Shuichi- Early bird, work and stuff; Kokichi- night owl

5. What are the nickname(s) they have given each other?
Shui, Koki

6. Who pulls the other one closer when sleeping?
Shuichi pulls Kokichi closer.

7. What small quirks do they love about each other?
Dunno, never seen em have quirks...that are cute, anyway.

8. Who runs up and hugs their partner while the other catches them?
Koki runs, Shui catches.

9. What song best represents them?
Pfft, I think they have theme songs.

10. Is there a 'mother hen' in the relationship and who?
Maybe Shuichi?

11. What animal would they say their SO is like?
Shui is like a penguin or otter, Koki is like a fox or cat.

12. Is there a small thing that the one does that makes no difference in their life, but it bothers the other all the same?

13. What are some quirks that each overlook in each other?
Dunno, again...

14. How did you meet each other? Each character tell the story in their own words.
Pfft, we all know how...I’ll do an AU version

Shuichi: “I was in my second year, but also working part time at a coffee shop. It was college, not high school, so I wasn’t going to get into any trouble. I’d seen Kokichi a few times, actually, always with one of two guys. I thought he was dating one, or all three were in a relationship...I mean, I don’t have anything against that, but I thought he was super cute. One day, all three were there together, and one guy came over, the tallest of the three. He introduced himself as Rantaro and asked for a Latte. The second guy came up, telling me he was Kaede, and I recognized him from a simpler class, Math or something. He asked for a Frappe then went back to the table. The last to come to me was the cutie; er, I mean, the purply and dark haired boy, introducing himself as Kokichi. He asked for a Caffe Mocha. Good taste, haha...Um, that’s how I officially met Kokichi, since just seeing him at a distance doesn’t count.”

Kokichi: ”Yeah, yeah! You forgot about the coffee spill though...So, yes, Rantaro went up to the counter first, then came back. Before Kaede could go a little girl screamed and there was a thud. Apparently, she thought she could run around and ended up running into her own father as he was bringing their coffee and pastries to the table. Shuichi had looked up at the sound, seeing the man consoling the kid and the coffee on the floor. He rushed over with napkins in hand, cleaning up while telling them they could get a refill. The man was happy to hear that, and agreed. As Shuichi stood up to take the napkins to the trash, our eyes met. Since he doesn’t believe it counts, I guess it doesn’t...but yeah, Kaede went to order, then they sent me up. I guess Ran and Kae planned this, because I talked about Shu-chan so much despite never having actually met him...talked to him. Well, that’s how we met.”

15. How do they show affection to each other?
Hugs, cuddles, kisses, touches

    • 1. What do you want to do for a career?
      xxxxmy more whimsical side would like to say author, but i wouldn't mind working as an english teacher or in a publishing agency
      2. What's your dream car/transportation?
      xxxxi'm not sure?? tbh i wouldn't trust myself with an expensive car because i get distracted way too easily, and with the area i live in it'd probably either get stolen or vandalised. if i could though i'd have a motorbike; i've wanted one since i was eight and still have a soft spot for them, i wouldn't really care what make though
      3. Do you see yourself getting married?
      xxxxi'd absolutely love to get married one day, though if it's not something my partner at the time would be interested in then i'd be happy just being with them
      4. Which kind of canned beans are the best? (ranch style, baked, pork 'n beans, black beans, refried...)
      xxxxbaked beans i think? i haven't really tried the others rip
      5. Have you ever been fishing?
      xxxxnot really. as a kid we'd go on little day trips out to the local park and catch small fish in nets [y'know, the ones on sticks that you buy at beaches and stuff], put them in buckets of water, watch them swim around for a little while before putting them back. i've never been fishing with an actual fishing rod or anything though
      6. Have you hung anything on your walls? If so, what?
      xxxxtoo many things, honestly. i change what i hang on my walls every other month because i'm so indecisive, but right now i have a few game posters [devil may cry, assassin's creed] and a few tv show posters, a jurassic world poster i got on the day the second one came out and a postcard from a friend
      7. Do you have any favorite characters you love developing/writing for?
      xxxxoh gosh there are too many. if i had to choose i'd say that i love writing for penemuel, my little demon son with a coffee addiction, daisuke, and my boy wrath
      8. In your own words, describe your happy place.
      xxxxthere was a park i used to be brought to when i was a child, behind the park there was a semi-steep hill, and towards the bottom of this hill was a small pond overshadowed by trees. that pond is my happy place, it's probably no longer there any more but it was always somewhere i found relaxing
      9. Is there a smell or a flavor that brings back good memories?
      xxxxthere's this one perfume my nan used to wear all the time when i was younger; it reminds me of when i lived with my grandparents and honestly it was one of the happiest times of my life. i still don't know what the perfume's called though, and my mum doesn't remember either so i don't know where to find it again
      10. What time of day do you favor most?
      xxxxnight time without a doubt, it's always just been really peaceful for me? it's quieter, i can curl up in my room and just relax without worrying about having to get up and go anywhere
      11. Do you have a favorite genre of book or movie?
      xxxxi have different favourites for each type; for favourite book genre i love anything fantasy, crime or historical, and for movie i love horror, sci-fi, musicals, comedy and i'm a bit of a sap for romance movies
      12. What's a good book that you read recently and would recommend? Why?
      xxxxi've been on a bit of a book reading binge recently and i've lost track, but one that sticks out is the woman in the window by dan mallory. it's so well done and keeps the reader guessing right up until the very end, would definitely recommend if you like crime/mystery novels. the way agoraphobia is presented was really well done as well
      13. What's a tv show that you have re-watched multiple times?
      xxxxdon't judge me, but i think it would be a tie between friday night dinner, the office, american horror story, lucifer, sherlock and trailer park boys
      14. What's your favorite classic movie?
      xxxxoh god i honestly can't decide, i love most classic horror movies so it's really hard to pick just one. i think it'd be a tie between the shining, silence of the lambs and the alien quadrilogy
      15. If you had a theme song, what would it be?
      xxxxgiven that i'm the human embodiment of a goldfish it'd probably just be a ten hour wii theme tbh

He's always prepared to make others laugh, rarely ever seen with a frown on his lips and with no song in his heart. Few people ever take him seriously, yet, Aaron doesn't give up from trying to make others see him in a different light, even if such an attitude often causes more trouble than it does good. He yearns to be valued and offer more than jokes and stories to his people; he wants to make a difference in battling whatever monsters the nuclear fallout has created, even if it means being locked up in his workshop for days without a break. He wants to be useful.

sector;; he belongs to the industrial sector and is one of the few inventors working on items and equipment meant to battle the radiation lingering outside. His job is dangerous because of the experiments he has to complete daily.

Easy to irritate and bitter in nature, she is not the most pleasurable of women, opting to establish her dominance immediately after meeting a newcomer. Known as a decent fighter, Elvire has taken up the position of a guardian and mentor to those she deems worthy of her training. She's often described to be selfish and ignorant, choosing to do everything by herself instead of relying on others. Elvire is troublesome, often unable to keep herself from crossing the line. And while this should be enough to kick her out from the sector or her community, her prowess in battle has secured Elvire's position.

AS Afflatus 24 // Member Interview

Sat Jun 08, 2019 9:05 pm

    • 1. What do you want to do for a career?
      Well currently I am in the Canadian Armed Forces, the Navy more specifically. It is good money and experience but what I really want to do it work with children. Which is why I volunteer for Big Brothers Big Sisters.
      2. What's your dream car/transportation?
      1967 Chevrolet Impala. Yes, Deans car from supernatural. It has been my dream car since I was eleven. Still is. Even though now as a semi-functioning adult I see that it would be horrible on gas and have terrible mileage.
      3. Do you see yourself getting married?
      Sure, one day. Not a big ceremony, and maybe not even legally or through the system. I believe in the more traditional style where it is among family and friends. No $10,000 wedding for me, I'd prefer a simple BBQ in my backyard and reading of vows.
      4. Which kind of canned beans are the best? (ranch style, baked, pork 'n beans, black beans, refried...)
      No beans are the best beans. Unless we are counting jelly beans.
      5. Have you ever been fishing?
      Yes, not in a long time though. My dad used to take me when he and I would go on our annual canoe trips on my birthday.
      6. Have you hung anything on your walls? If so, what?
      Tonnes. Marvel posters, Doctor Who and Anime posters, naked woman posters, and I went through a directioner phase where I bought every teen mag possible and hung the posters from them all over my wall. At one point my entire room was covered in the faces of One Direction.
      7. Do you have any favorite characters you love developing/writing for?
      Yes, more specifically, certain worlds. Like Full Metal Alchemist and Naruto, Avatar: the Last Air bender, Pirates of the Caribbean, dystopian themes and probably a lot more. I do have a few characters that I've had for doing on 13 years now who I still imagine daily.
      8. In your own words, describe your happy place.
      I'm not even sure anymore. My grandpa's house on Christmas day. The smells, his voice, the family. Everything being normal and easy for one single day. I would give anything to have him and my mom back.
      9. Is there a smell or a flavor that brings back good memories?
      Bonfire smell. My grandparents lived a trailer part for the warms season before travelling down to Florida for the cold ones. Snow birds they were called. Camping was something I did every summer and it's nice to remember back to those days where we would roast marshmallows around a fire and my grandpa would put his false teeth in my orange juice.
      10. What time of day do you favor most?
      If I wake up for it, the early summer morning. The smell of the dew and temperature is something I live for, however I always sleep in and see it rarely. So definitely night time where I can go to bed..
      11. Do you have a favorite genre of book or movie?
      Dystopian.
      12. What's a good book that you read recently and would recommend? Why?
      I haven't read anything recently to be honest, it's been hard to commit and concentrate.. but one of my all time favorite dystopian series is The Darkest Minds Trilogy by Alexandra Bracken.
      13. What's a tv show that you have re-watched multiple times?
      Avatar: The Last Airbender
      14. What's your favorite classic movie?
      Dirty Dancing. (Does Titanic count as classic?)
      15. If you had a theme song, what would it be?
      "I wanna stay home today, I don't wanna wanna go out" Stay Home by Self (From the Shrek soundtrack)
