In case it wasn't obvious I didn't make it past auditions in Mystery Mayhem, oh well. There's a lot of stuff I could have done better but I decided to audition just a few days before they were closing auditions so I was pretty crunched for time. Ces la mania.
In irl news, stuff is... weird. Lot of family drama, but I'm in the USA again and that's pretty nice. I've been too lazy to fully hook up my desktop computer so I'm still on my laptop. It's a gaming laptop though so it's not a big deal. I just feel guilty having my mondo gaming computer collecting dust next to me. I've mostly been playing FFXIV, SUPER excited for Viera and SUPER pissed about it being genderlocked, but I'll get over it.
I'm still not drawing a whole lot, mostly just chibis here and there as part of inside jokes in the MMOCT Discord server (yaaay spectator status). I should probably upload them at some point, but the self-consciousness is stronk.
1) Scariest thing you've watched or played?
I'm a colossal wimp when it comes to horror so there's a very short list to choose from (though I absolutely love watching horror Let's Plays for some reason). Bioshock is definitely the scariest game I've played (the splicers covered in plaster freaked me the fuck out because I couldn't tell which ones were going to move and they were creepy and AAAAAAAAA), and as for the scariest one I've watched... I think I have to give the award to the Game Grumps playthrough of Undertale's genocide route because I actually had a panic attack while watching it. Runner-up is Fatal Frame because I literally peed myself at a jumpscare (in my defense, I was 12 and had been holding it in).
2) You're in a video game. What would be your big signature move/limit break/final smash type thing?
I've had more than one person tell me they can imagine me summoning a horde of seals to crush my opponents to death, so let's go with that. It would be called Pinnimancy.
3) Keeping in the video game theme, if you were more an NPC in a game instead, what would you be like?
I'd be one of the ones that doesn't add anything to the plot, but has some funny dialogue. Maybe I'd give a mundane side-quest like "pet 100 dogs" with the reward being the satisfaction of petting 100 dogs. And maybe an achievement.
4) If you could have any singer or music group make a song or theme for you, who would you pick?
UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I'm pretty mundane so I can't imagine having an epic themesong. Maybe something by Lifehouse? They have some nice calm generic music.
5) Do you have more heroic or villainous characters? (Neutral is an option too.)
Pretty much all of my OCs are neutral, most of them leaning towards villainous by normal people standards. I think Emmy is the only one who leans very close to heroic.
6) Favorite of one of your friend's OC designs? (Yes a chance to show your friends some love)
I LOVE EVERYONE'S BRAIN CHILDREN
but since I have to pick one I'm going to say
's Phalt. I think his concept is really creative, and he's a super cute character to boot (i.e. precious asphalt roll who is too pure for this world).7) Favorite quote/line that you can remember?
It's not word-for-word but a line that really stuck with me is from an old PS2 game called Primal.
"Without order, life would be impossible to live. No one could get anything done, it would be total anarchy. But without chaos, life would be boring."
8) Favorite animal?
ALL OF THEM.
Except pigs, bears, penguins, chimpanzees, and most insects. Sorry.
But more seriously, manatees and sea lions are at the very very tippiest top of the list, second place being held by walruses, seals, and bunnies. In close third is cats, dogs, and rodents.
9) Any big regrets?
That's a really hard question to answer. I mean, I've obviously done some pretty stupid shit (see DA journal entries from 2000-2005) that I regret on some level, but I don't know if I'd go back and change anything. I've learned something from (most of) my mistakes, and they make for pretty interesting stories. I think, though, my biggest regret would be that I didn't learn discipline and instead learned how to lie to the point that it's reflexive.
10) Favorite vacation?
I love going to the Outer Banks, even if there's always some kind of family drama going on. I'm not a fan of sand- or rather, having to wash it all off- but I like the sound of the ocean. It's really soothing for me. (I sometimes like to imagine I'm a Selkie, don't judge me)11) Zombies appear! What would you do!?
Kill myself, probably. I would be absolutely useless in a zombie apocalypse.12) Bookending this: What moment that you've watched or played gave you the most feels?
I'm a very emotional person so there are a lot of tear-jerker moments for me. I've cried a lot playing Monster Rancher, whenever one of my monsters dies. Like, full-on sobbing fits. In most of them you can freeze them to be combined later, but in MR3 you have to sit and let them die so that their spirit can go to the next monster you raise. UGH, MY FUCKING HEART. I will say I was a blubbering mess at the end of Jiwoo's route in Dandelion: Wishes Made For You (shut up I can play dating sims if I want
), as well as at the end of Final Fantasy X. As for things I've watched, there was a part in Big Hero 6 where Hiro was watching video of his brother and it just killed me. I have an older sister that I kind of idolize, and the thought of losing her really hit me (I'm told she had a similar reaction to Frozen).
Guess I'll do some questions too, tag a few people or whatever.1. Which of your OCs is your favorite?
2. You have died and are given the choice to either go to heaven or be reborn with all of your memories intact. What do you choose?
3. What is something you hate about something you love?
4. What is something you love about something you hate?
5. What is your favorite flavor of anything?
6. If expense weren't an issue, what would be your ideal two-week vacation?
7. What genre of music best suits your personality?
8. Which is your favorite of one of your friend's OC designs? (stealing Hyena's question because I thought it was really good)9. If you could cosplay as anyone/anything, who/what would you be?10. What's your favorite minor holiday?11. If you could get rid of one of your flaws at the expense of one of your positive traits, would you do it? What traits would you choose?12. What is your useless human trick?
Let's just throw out some tags...
EDIT: got re-tagged by 1) What is the earliest memory you have?
When I was 4, I chased some bullies away from my older sister with a plastic baseball bat while screaming at them. I just wanted to play Barbie horses with her and her friend, but because I embarrassed her she still didn't let me play :'c2) What is your most memorable dream?
The one where I nearly actually died in my sleep! I dreamed I was swimming in a fairly shallow river, and you know how you can breathe underwater in dreams because you're breathing irl? Well, I took a deep breath and suddenly couldn't inhale anymore. So in my dream state it didn't seem that unusual and I just swam around underwater... But when I came up for air I still couldn't breathe. Just as I started to panic I was able to breathe again. It took a few days for me to realize that I must have rolled over onto my pillow and nearly smothered myself.3) Why did you join deviantArt?
At the time, a bunch of my friends from Side7 were joining DA because it was more... mature? Not like I had any mature stuff to upload at the time, but I liked feeling dangerous and uncensored.4) Guilty pleasure?
Watching FNAF Let's Plays. I'm not into the fandom or anything, but the mystery of the lore fascinates me.5) You have to run a tabletop campaign. What would it be about?
I actually was planning one out but it never took off. It was going to be a WoD: Werewolf game where instead of wolf forms the players could choose breeds of dogs. I nicknamed it Weredoge: The Doggening. 6) Describe what you're wearing RIGHT NOW!
Red teeshirt and white pyjama pants with sheep on them. They have wool nightcaps on, and some of them are grey with red hats while the rest are white.7) If you had to become one of your OCs and live their life, who would you be?
Oh god do I have to?! Uh... Probably Sam, my first tabletop character. Being the omega of the werewolf pack sounds pretty good to me.8) If you knew that you would not die, what is that most dangerous thing you would do?
Bungee jumping! It's on my bucket list.9) If you were a golem, what would you be made of and what purpose would you serve?
I'd be made of cloth and stuffing, and my purpose would be to give hugs.10) You can have any number of wishes but you have to get rid of a body part every time you made a wish (e.g. an eye, a toe, a finger)... name your wishes and body parts you'd be willing to get rid of.
I'd give up a toe to have the determination to get things done, i.e. get rid of my laziness.11) Tell me your best "dad joke".
What does an agnostic dyslexic insomniac do at night?
They lie awake in bed wondering if there really is a dog.12) On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate your own attractiveness (physically)?
Ehhhhh 6? I have a cute face and am proportional, with an hourglass figure. There just needs to be less of it, ahaha...
Not tagging more people because that would get ridiculous.
