1. Pick one of your OCs 
2. Fill in the question/statements as if you were that OC
3. Tag four people to do this meme

(Translated from Tempian into English. I would have written it in Tempian but I'm too dumb to make such a fictional language so extensive one could have a conversation in it.)

Brijeka (IN COLOUR) by Brijeka

1. What is your name?

I'm Brijeka Vervix. You can call me Brij but not Beaver.

2. Do you know why are you named that?

My parents didn't plan on having me so I think they just chose Brijeka because it was the most popular baby name for Tempian girls in 2004, 2003 and 2002, the three years before I was born.

3. Are you single or taken?

I'd be taken if that dumbass Zette knew I wanted him but no, he was too stupid to even recognise I sent him a Valentine note when I clearly wrote 'from B.V.' on it! No one else is initialed 'B.V.' Grrrrr.

Wait, what's Briela's last name? It doesn't start with 'V', right? Right? I swear, if he starts thinking Briela's into him...

4. Have any abilities or powers?

Ummmm I'm good at maths? That's a super power right? Most of my class seems to suck at it sooooo...

Oh, and I can play the recorder without making grown-ups cover their ears. That's a real super power apparently.

5. Stop being Mary Sue.

I'm Brijeka! Who's Mary Sue? Is that a girl's name? It sounds foreign.

6. What's your eye color?


7. What's your hair color?

Black. But I put a streak of bright blue in it because just black is boring even if mum didn't like it. You like it, right? I'm trying to be cool, you know.

8. Have any family members?

Well obviously I have my parents but I've also got a younger brother and sister because for some reason mum decided to have even more children after I'd thrown her uni plans out the window. Anyway, both my brother and sister are really dumb.

My brother, who just happens to also be called Zette, I DID NOT SEND MY BROTHER A VALENTINE, is a complete brick and only ever plays video games in his bedroom. You can tell when he's losing because he starts shouting and his room is right next to mine. It's really annoying. Like, ZETTE! SHUT! UP! He's also really bad at maths. Ugh, what an idiot.

My sister is called Imojen and she's slightly less dumb but extra annoying to make up for it. Maybe she uses her slightly greater intelligence to be more annoying? She constantly talks about everything and anything, especially the stuff I don't want to hear about and she even comes into my room to do it. I wish I could tape her mouth shut. She's also quite tubby because she can't stop eating. Maybe tape would help there too?

Both my siblings look very much like me except that Zette's a boy (duh!) and Imojen is a bit shorter and overweight. She even has the same haircut as me! She better not got and put blue in it...

9. How about pets?

I wish we had a pet. Pjette, she's my friend, has some cats and they're so cuddly! They'll even sit on you and make your legs warm! I'd like a raccoon though. Their masks are so cute but you need special permission to own one in Tempia unfortunately.

10. That's cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don't like.

Well I don't like spiders very much. Especially the ones with fat bodies and skinny legs. They send shivers down my spine with the way they move. It's so icky! A few nights ago, I had a dream where I was in a tent in northern Canada (dunno why it was Canada, just was coz it was cold and snowing) and there were all these fat green spiders everywhere. I was trying to crawl away but more of them just kept appearing! It was horrible! When I woke up and went to the toilet, I had to kept reminding myself there weren't any fat green spiders dropping out of the darkness.

But I really hate cigarettes and smokers. Firstly they're really rude and obnoxious, thinking they have some kind of right to puff away on their disgusting cancer sticks, giving everyone around them cancer too as well as an irritated nose. Secondly, when I was ten, my dad burnt my arm with a cigarette because I fought with another girl at school. I can't remember how it felt but it must've hurt heaps since I screamed really loudly and I've been scared of cigarettes ever since. I still have the scar from it on my upper left arm. At least it made dad give up smoking.

I also don't like pimples. Does anybody? They make me look so ugly and they hurt too. Stupid pimples.

11. Do have any activities/hobbies that you like to do?

As well as playing the recorder, I also draw but I'm not very good and I read a bit too. I like fantasy the most, especially Harry Potter. I'm a Slytherin by the way.

We also go camping and bushwalking as a family too in the school holidays. I like getting out in nature. There's a lot of beautiful scenery in Tempia. You should come and see it. My sister doesn't like it though. Maybe she would if she lost some weight but it's funny teasing her about it. It's also funny seeing the kids from school who don't get out much going bushwalking on school camps like this one girl, Kolenna. Imojen is stick thin compared to her and she struggled so much on the last pack walk. I'm surprised she even made it! Serves her right for being rude to me at school.

12. Have you ever hurt anyone in anyway?

Well I fight with my brother and sister all the time but I guess I don't mean to actually hurt them in the end, even if they are really annoying. As for actually hurting people, two stand out:

First when I was in grade five, so about ten years old, this girl named Zerreck moved into my class after transferring from a school in the capital. She absolutely hated me for no reason! She went and got nearly the whole school teasing me about my weight so much I starved myself until I ended up fainting in PE class. Eventually I fought back and we had a wrestling match in the corridor where I remember biting her among other things. That's what got me the burn on my arm.

Second was last year in my first year of high school, year 8. There was this boy named Kaide who was and still is a huge cock who thought he could have his way with me. It started with inappropriately touching me and making lewd comments and gestures to me but quickly got worse. Once he flashed me and then he actually slid his hand inside my shorts. At that point I was beyond done so the next time he touched me, I punched him in the face so hard I broke his nose! I was suspended for the rest of the day and yelled at by several people but it felt really good. He didn't touch me after that!

13. Ever... killed anyone?

Uh, no! Zerreck nearly killed me, pushing me down a flight of stairs!

14. What kind of animal are you?

Ummmmmmmm raccoon!

Definitely not a beaver though. Even though some people at school like to call me that coz of my initials 'B-Ver'. They think it's funny. I don't!

15. Name your worst habits.

I think I'm too shy. Even when I want to get socially involved I can't for some reason. I try talking to people but they just talk to each other and don't even listen to me until I shout at them. Then they say I'm loud and obnoxious. Ugh.

16. Do you look up to anyone at all?

I've never thought about that so I suppose not. My life is determined by what I do, not what someone else does in their independent life.

17. Are you gay, straight or bisexual?

I think I'm straight. I mean, I wanted Zette (not my brother) to be my boyfriend because he was really cute and it felt good when we touched but then he turned out to be really thick headed like seemingly every other boy in existence. I dunno. Sometimes Pjette gets pretty huggy and that feels good too. Does that make me gay for her? We're just best friends, right?

18. Do you go to school?

Of course! I'm currently in year nine at TEK (*South Tana College). It's an alright school I suppose but a few of the students are a bit crap. Like Kaide. What an arse.

19. Ever want to get married and have kids one day?

I suppose so, one day. As long as he isn't as dumb as all the boys at TEK. I also don't want to make the mistake my parents did and have a baby halfway through uni which screws everything up and I end up resenting because of it.

20. Do you have any fangirls/fanboys?

I don't think so... Would having an army of fangirls and boys be cool?

21. What are you most afraid of?

Well I've already said spiders, smokers and cigarettes. But I'm also scared of heights (they make me dizzy and then I worry I'll fall off) and Indian take-out. Yup. That's because I got food poisoning after eating it once and that was really horrible. My stomach blew up and I was vomiting all night until there was nothing left to vomit so I just retched non-stop instead. I've never eaten Indian take-out since.

22. What clothes do you usually wear?

I used to wear this red Wisconsin t-shirt all the time. I got it when we went on a holiday to the Great Lakes in America once when I was little but sadly it's too small for me now. I was so upset when that happened. Nowadays I mostly wear my TEK uniform because I can't be bothered getting changed after school. Otherwise just t-shirts and jeans or shorts. I don't really like dresses very much.

Why do you want to know what my uniform is like? I'm wearing it right now. But if you must: There's a white polo-shirt with blue bits on the sleeves and the TEK logo right here over my left boob. On the collar her is the year level badge. It says I'm in year nine, see? Then there's a blue skirt with darker blue stripes and finally dark grey socks. Of course I wear shoes too. They're black, boring and uncomfortable.

23. What's one food that tempts you?

Definitely chocolate. Can't get enough of that. I also don't mind komi cakes or chicken schnitzel (*she means the Tempian version).

24. What class are you (low/middle/high)?

Do you mean economically? I dunno. You'll have to ask mum. MUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUM! Oh, she's gone? Well I think we're somewhere in the middle class probably. We used to be pretty poor when I was young but dad got a new job designing things for a big company (he used to be a wood carver) and mum's finished her uni degree finally and is working as a journalist for a newspaper in Tana so we have a bit more money now but we aren't really well off or anything. Our house is pretty small and as you can see, my bedroom is tiny!

25. What are your thoughts on pie?

Pi? I memorised that to 100 decimal places! 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944 5923078164062862089986280348253421170679...

Oh, you meant the food?! Well, um, I don't know! I haven't really had pie before. We have some foods like pies in Tempia which are nice but you Westerners wouldn't really call them pies. My friend Pjette went to Australia over the summer just past and ate some meat pies. She said they were nice but ended up not liking them because she thought they made her fat. Really she's paranoid, I think her weight gain came from getting taller rather than wider but she doesn't believe me.

26. Favorite drink?

Ice cream soda! Red flavour! It's really nice sitting by the beach in the summer drinking one of those.

27. What's your favorite place?

But I have lots of those! All those national parks in central Tempia! The beaches around Tana, as long as they aren't overrun with tourists! Wisconsin! I dunno why, I just rather liked Madison. But overall, probably my room. It's the one place I can do anything I want without anyone knowing, provided I'm not too loud.

28. Are you interested in anyone?

Well I used to be interested in Zette, again, not my brother! But then he turned out to be stupid so now I'm not really interested in anyone at the moment.

29. That was a stupid question.

Hmmm I could have a crush on someone else and I just didn't tell you. Hah! Don't be silly. Of course I don't!

30. Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean?

Uhhh I don't really like swimming very much at all. I know, Pjette keeps pressuring me to go swimming more but I'm just bad at it. Oh you really want an answer, don't you? I DON'T KNOW! Which one's less dangerous? I like sitting next to both of them though. Or crossing them on boats. That's fun.

31. What's your type?

Blood type? I'm not telling you that! Wait, boys? Oh. I want a boy who is cute, smart, tall and won't hold me back like some of those people you hear about on the internet who think women belong in the kitchen. He also has to passionately love me!

32. Camping or outdoors?

Isn't camping outdoors? Staying in a cabin isn't camping. It's still fun though but camping requires a tent at the minimum. Or do you mean no tent? Um, I'd rather a tent. I like nature but not so much I want it to be crawling all over me as I sleep!

33. Any fetishes?

Heyyyy! T-that's private! No! Don't look at that book! No! Awwwwwwww! Give it back! It's not, ummm, please don't tell mum! It's just, uhh, cuddling! I swear!

Tagging people
I don't really know enough people to tag so ummm, I'll tag anyone who wants to be tagged!

Big fan of fantasy and sci-fi, in particular a mix of horror macabre and lighthearted FUN!*

Also love Harry Potter.

Please respect my OC.

Just please don't use my creations without asking and giving credit. Thank you for understanding.

Feel free to watch if you want.

DA's page-view counter is funny. Every now and again I'll be trailing along at the usual [REDACTED] views per day and then I'll get an inexplicable spike without warning. Surely  School Photo by Brijeka  didn't attract so many people (yet get no favs...). Maybe it was a comment I posted somewhere? Either way, I could probably find out by reinstating the visitors section but I removed that because I thought it somewhat intrusive to people's privacy.

I also wish you could remove the daily page views section. Stressing about maintaining that is so frustrating!
It's interesting studying the assortment of favourites on my works to see that while there is a correlation between favourites and my perceived effort on a piece, the works I believe I worked the most on aren't right up the top of the favourites except for this piece of fanart:
Pansy Parkinson by Brijeka
While those other works at the top like
Private Beaver by Brijeka  and  Durnman and Samaarin by Brijeka
had a lot of effort put into them, they were by no means my most talented pieces I believe. After all, they're just characters with no background (drawing wise) at all. Maybe a lot of people here just prefer military related stuff? Who knows...
So often I'll see really cool artwork here, say of some amazing fantasy world or SF creation which is made with great detail and care and I'll think: 'Wow! That's awesome! I want to know more!' but when I open the piece I find only a footnote saying 'rendered in Program XX' or something to that effect and I end up really disappointed.

So a shout-out to all the people who give a bit of background info about their works, even if it's just one or two sentences to give context because just a couple of words can dramatically change the feel of a piece.

Does anyone else feel this?
1066 page views in commemoration of Hastings and the Norman conquest of England
Well finally at 1000 page views. What a way to start 2019! (Happy new year btw)

Also, since Boxing Day, 20 different countries have visited my page :D (Big Grin) with the USA coming 1st at 40.9% of visits, Australia 2nd at 19.7% and Canada and the Isle of Man tied for 3rd at 4.5% each! So thanks to you and the other 17 countries so far for the views.

Hopefully through 2019 this list will be expanded and I might one day collect the crown jewel, that is, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (come on Kim, you can do it!).
