    • 1. how would your character feel about babysitting? leleea doesn't like children, and if anything, is a bit wary around them. she doesn't wish to have any of her own, either.
      2. if your character had the chance to take the place of any character in a book, who would it be? i don't think she would, tbh. she's not really the "god i wish that were me" type.
      3. what does your character aspire to be? as bad as it sounds, leleea's ultimate wish is to just be a good person.
      4. what are your character’s goals for the future? she doesn't really plan ahead like that, just takes life one day at a time. she makes it through the day? great, then the next one will come.
      5. how does your character handle resolutions? after working a job, especially a big one, she's often faced with a pit in her stomach and an hollow feeling in her chest. the resolution never feels good, happy, or justified to her. she feels as though she didn't do enough.
      6. what is your character afraid of? tangible things? not much. intangible, however? quite a lot. she's terrified of losing someone, abandonment, and getting too close to people. it's a hard balance, hating the idea of losing a person yet also not wanting them to get too close to her.
      7. what is your character reluctant to tell people? just about anything pertaining to her personal life.
      8. what is your character’s major flaws? she's extremely irrational, quick to anger, and very distrusting of others.
      9. how does your character handle confrontation? leleea always bites back, and isn't afraid to lay out the line.
      10. what is something your character can’t stand? dishonesty. she wants to know the full story, and believes that those who don't "tell the full truth" are lying just the same. she also can't stand people who are "stuck in their ways".
      11. who is someone your character can’t stand? her parents. her sister, as well, but less so over the years.
      12. does your character have any allergies? are they life threatening? no, she doesn't.
      13. is your character religious? what religion? how strictly do they follow it? yes and no. as she is apart of the dark brotherhood, her organisation as a whole worships sithis. though she does follow the tenets and enact kills in his name, she is not wholly devout to him like most others.
      14. if your character could redo a moment, what would that be? if given the option, she'd consider redoing the event that caused her exile from summerset, but given thought, she'd change her mind and wouldn't go back and change a single thing for the world.
      15. how does your character show their significant other affection? their friends? leleea isn't really the affectionate type, and is terrified of allowing herself to get too close to people. her version of affection is mostly sarcastic banter and hidden (good) intentions.

    • 1. What is your favorite color? purple. always has been. also gamora green though because of course.
      2. What was your favorite vacation? oof. every vacation I love and cherish for different reasons. but probably the trip to florida, my first time out of the country, with my parents and best friend and her parents. we were young but I remember so much of it, plus we went to disney and universal too. though like I said, I cherish every trip for different reasons.
      3. What is your favorite music? everything pretty much. I have such a mix. oldies, guardians soundtracks (captain marvel and endgame too, basically just older music tbh), mumford and sons, great big sea, my old emo music from junior high, just a mix of everything. though maritime music holds a special place in my heart and always will.
      4. What is your favorite scent? the strawberry body wash I have. I love it.
      5. Do you have a favorite dessert? cheesecake probably. i'm not a huge dessert person though.
      6. What is your favorite holiday? christmas!!! 175 days!!!
      7. What’s your favorite line from a fictional character? this is like asking me to pick a favourite child wth. "its just some unspoken thing" for obvious reasons. but tbh the entire perks of being a wallflower book and movie: "we accept the love we think we deserve", "I am both happy and sad at the same time, and i'm still trying to figure out how that could be", and "this one moment when you know you’re not a sad story. you are alive. and you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. and you’re listening to that song, and that drive with the people who you love most in this world. and in this moment, I swear, we are infinite.” stephen chbosky I love you man.
      8. What’s your favorite writing spot? in my bed tbh. its quiet and comfy. I like writing on the couch downstairs with autumn though too. or in the basement where I can be a gremlin and avoid the sunlight and just write my posts lol.
      9. What’s your favorite reading spot? I don't read anymore sadly. but probably bed too. or on the beach.
      10. What’s your favorite genre to write? fandoms and scifi/fantasy.
      11. What’s your least favorite genre to write? slice of life kind of stuff usually. I get bored, and I like angst lol.

      13. What is your favorite animal? cats. and horses and dogs.
      14. What is your least favorite sound? any loud noises really. crinkling plastic or bones, other than fingers, cracking too.
      15. Who is your favorite author? stephen chbosky and john green probably. but its been a hot second since i've read anything so idk.

  • What is your favourite colour? I'm a fan of dark colours. My absolute favourite is black, but I'm very fond of crimson red and white. Various shades of grey are also becoming fast favourites of mine, especially silvery tones. But one look at my wardrobe would easily show that I'm a lover of black. ♥
    What was your favourite vacation? Hmm, probably the time we visited Finland in 2006. Don't get me wrong; I like visiting hotter climates, too, but there was just something about long nights when everything was bright outside and I could drink hot chocolate in the evening because it was cold enough and then eat ice-cream during the day. Plus, we got to see elk and even meet Santa Claus and it was honestly one of the vacations I enjoyed a lot.
    What is your favourite music? I'm a true metalhead. When it comes to choosing between rock and metal, I'm definitely more of a rock-lover, but the umbrella term fits me just fine. I enjoy heavy songs with a lot of meaning, but I listen to classical, a little bit of pop and some styles that just appear out of nowhere, too. But when it comes to favourite bands, I have a soft spot for Nightwish, Within Temptation, Skillet, Black Veil Brides and many others.
    What is your favourite scent? I'm very fond of scents you can find in the woods. Pines, cut trees, wet moss... I like all of that. I like pine the most. :)
    Do you have a favourite dessert? I'm an absolute slut for caramel. Hell, you could give me just a cube of that goodness and I'll be more than happy to participate in a sacrificial ritual if you wanted me to do that. I'm not very fond of eating mainly chocolate-orientated desserts and much more prefer cookies and anything that is fruit-related. But caramel is and always will be one of my best friends in life and something that I enjoy very much.
    What is your favourite holiday? That's a tough one. I'm not exactly a big fan of grand holidays like Christmas, Easter, etc. And we don't celebrate things like Halloween here, either. But two of the holidays that I like a lot is Mardi Gras and Midsummer Day. They're just cosier days for me in general.
    What’s your favourite line from a fictional character? "Get busy living, or get busy dying." It's something that Andy Dufresne, one of the characters from The Shawshank Redemption, said and it just somehow stuck with me. Not only is it a catchy line, but it's also very... fitting, I'd say. I like it.
    What’s your favourite writing spot? Probably where I am right now; at my desk, tapping away at my keyboard with some mineral water nearby. :D
    What’s your favourite reading spot? Either near my computer or curled up in my bed with a nice cup of tea. I also don't really mind reading in a car/bus or while travelling on a plane, as long as no one is disturbing me while I do that. Shout out to that kid who kept bumping my book on the plane.
    What’s your favourite genre to write? Horror, scenes with lots of blood/death/gore, various stories with a lot of angst, etc. I'm also a fan of fantasy and historical stories, so I don't mind writing those, either. I consider myself to be a fairly flexible writer in terms of genres; I know and like a lot. cx
    What’s your least favourite genre to write? Romance. I both suck and dislike it heavily. Romance is most often rushed, not realistic and it is a second-rate plot that I absolutely hate delving into. I'd much rather write pornographic stories without any romance instead of writing something cheesy.
    What is your favourite memory? Oh, this is going to be a funny one. Basically, during my graduation from high school, we were all sitting around and drinking at a fancy place and at around midnight, my current boyfriend came up and 'challenged' me to a drinking competition (and, as sad as it was, I couldn't participate for various reasons), but I guess that's one of the most fun memories I have as of right now. It really doesn't mean I don't value my current memories with him, but that was probably the first time it hit me that we could've been great friends throughout high school. I'm lucky now!
    What is your favourite animal? It's a very difficult choice between owls, snakes or wolves. I mostly associate with owls, so I guess they're my favourite.
    What is your least favourite sound? Someone snoring, chewing loudly or raking their nails across a chalkboard. I have sensitive ears, so louder sounds can upset them easily. But the most annoying sound of them all is... little children. Yelling, crying or even talking just gives me a massive headache as I plot to go on a killing spree of those little demons. There is nothing that can make me angrier faster than a loud, obnoxious child. No kids for me.
    Who is your favourite author? Balys Sruoga! If anyone has the time and can find a translated copy of that book, read Forest of the Gods! It's a pleasure to read; full of irony and sarcasm and will tell you a little bit about my country! My close second is Stephen King, our mighty lord of horror/misery. ♥

Depends on my mood. I'm always up for some good beat music, although sometimes I really enjoy those heartfelt, string pulling, songs.

Vanilla.

Honestly anything chocolate and I'll eat it.

Ugh, nails on a chalkboard or anything like that. No....
