and I'm counting you, too,
! Awesome jobs from both of you, by the way--loved reading them. ^^ Sorry for the abundance of OCs, but I tried doing this with just Rhia, but then it didn't seem right to do it without Air, too, and then he needed someone to reign him in and answer for him, so I said screw it and threw all four of them in there. They're such a self-contained universe...
-Fill in the questions/statements as if you were one of your OCs.
-Tag four people to do this meme!
-Tell people they've been tagged with a link from your journal.
1. What is your name?
Rhia: "Oh, um, m-my name is R-Rhiannon. N-Nice to me-e-et you."
Aaron: "And I'm Aaron Fang."
Zak: "Zakary Fray. It's a pleasure."
Rique: "Rique. Who's asking?"
2. Do you know why you were named that?
Rhia: "N-Not really. I'm, um, an o-orphan, so I can't ask."
Aaron: "Yeah, same here. Not that it matters much or anything. What a useless question."
Zak: "It's a name Mother always liked."
Rique: "Yeah, because I named myself. It was... a convenient compromise, you could say."
3. Are you single or taken?
Rhia: "Wh-Wh-What? I, um, I'm not... That is... S-Single, I g-guess..."
Aaron: "Huh?! What are you, the frickin' papparazzi?! None of your damn business!"
Zak: "Hmm, single. I don't think this is any time to change that.'
Rique: "Oh, I'm single, but the first girl to look me in the eyes and tell me that she loves me can have me for the rest of her life."
4. Have any abilities or powers?
Rhia: "Ah, yes. I w-wouldn't call them p-powers, b-but I can fight very well a-and recently, create e-energy with my hands, too!"
Aaron: "Pfft, powers, sure. I have the POWER to occasionally go nuts thinking I can fly and get the sudden urge to chew people's jugulars out while they're still breathing."
Zak: "Don't be rude, Air. He can run at super-speeds, too. As for me, well, I suppose you could call it the ability to blend in. I'm occasionally prescient as well."
Rique: "Uh, yeah. See the horns? The tail? The claws? This blindfold isn't for show, pal. It's all that's keeping YOU alive right now."
5. Stop being a Mary-Sue!
Rhia: "...I'm s-sorry..."
Aaron: "You don't tell me what to do, bastard! And quit bullying Rhia!"
Zak: "You should understand what's going on before you make any accusations like that. I take the implication that none of these 'abilities' have any downsides personally."
Rique: "He means fuck off."
6. What's your eye color?
Zak: "Blue as well."
Rique: "...Fucker, how should I know?"
7. How about hair color?
Rhia: "Brown, b-but this part grows p-purple. It's, um, r-related to the energy thing..."
Aaron: "It's red, duh. You blind or something?"
Rique: "Again, asshole, I'm TOLD it's white. And I HEARD THAT, SHRIMP."
8. Have you any family members?
Rhia: "I-I said I was an o-orphan, but the M-Matriarch adopted me, a-and I g-guess the other orphans a-are a f-family of sorts."
Aaron: "Eh, I was orphaned, too, but Zak adopted me. Technically his parents did, but he's really the only family I've got."
Zak: "There's Mother and Father and Aaron, of course, and recently I suppose you could count Rique and Rhia as well."
Rique: "Don't count me into any family of yours, Pretty Boy. No, I don't have any family anymore."
9. How about pets?
Rhia: "N-No, animals in the sl-slums are only for w-working."
Aaron: "Ugh, YES. Zak's dad has this stupid mutt that bites."
Zak: "As Aaron said, there was Fenrir, but he was mostly Father's."
10. Now tell me something you don't like...
Rhia: "Well, um, I-I really don't like fi-ighting..."
Zak: "Interruptions when I'm reading, and people who hurt my brother."
Rique: "Most things."
11. Do you have any activities/hobbies that you like to do?
Rhia: "Y-Yes! I l-like making mobiles out o-of scrap, a-and gardening, too! Th-though gardening's more like m-my j-job..."
Aaron: "Flying and swordfighting! And running! And stargazing!"
Zak: "I like to read."
12. Have you ever hurt anyone in anyway before?
Rhia: "I, um... y-yes, I h-have..."
Aaron: "...what a shitty question. Screw you."
Zak: "It would be fairly impossible to live life otherwise."
13. Ever... killed anyone before?
Aaron: "Fuck off."
Zak: "A few, yes."
Rique: "What's everybody getting all tense for? There was a war. YES, we all killed people. God. Grow a pair, all of you."
14. What kind of animal are you?
Rhia: "Hmm? I've n-never thought about it..."
Aaron: "HUMAN, YOU ASS. I. AM. HUMAN."
Zak: "Calm down, Air, they didn't mean it that way. It's not something I've ever thought about, either, I must admit. The concept of spirit animals and animal symbolism as defined by one's personality dates back to before human records even existed, and has a rather rich and varied cultural--"
Rique: "I am a basilisk and I EAT PEOPLE WHO DON'T SHUT UP."
(Note: Rhia's a lop-eared rabbit, Aaron's a rainbow lorikeet, Zak is a black swan, and Rique is a blue dragon sea slug. This is the issue with asking the characters directly.)
15. Name your worst habits.
Rhia: "I-I guess my stuttering is pret-etty annoying, and, um, I-I'm kind of a p-pushover..."
Aaron: "You've got the wrong guy if you're looking for flaws. I am the PINNACLE of human perfection, got it?"
Zak: "I'm not sure I have the clearest self-view, but I suppose I'd have to say that I can be a bit obsessive."
Rique: "Killing people? Not really sarcasm if you do it by accident, is it?"
16. Do you look up to anyone at all?
Rhia: "Oh, lots."
Aaron: "Zak, I suppose. Sovereign's pretty cool, too. He taught me how to fight!"
Zak: "Thanks, Air. I look up to Father, myself. Or, I did anyway. Nowadays I'm more concerned with being a role model myself."
Rique: "No. As a matter of fact, I don't LOOK at anything."
17. Are you gay, straight, or bisexual?
Aaron: "Again, none of your business, but in the interest of that not being taken the wrong way, straight."
Zak: "I'd like to think it's more about personality than gender, but I've never really gotten the opportunity to test that out."
Rique: "I'm not all human. I'm pretty sure any kind of sex with one could be considered beastiality--on my part, that is."
18. Do you go to school?
Rhia: "N-No, I never did. The staff t-taught us all some basic things, th-though."
Aaron: "I DID, until I started losing my damn mind and the whole city went nuts trying to kill each other."
Zak: "I'd just completed high school before being forced to drop out, but I intend to go back and get one or two Phds when I get the time. I'm fairly confident it won't be a problem."
19. Ever wanna marry and have kids one day?
Rhia: "I-I'd really like that..."
Aaron: "Ugh. Ew. No."
Zak: "I don't really see that in my future, no. I'll leave that to Air."
Rique: "Fuck no. Having kids is generally what got us into this shit."
20. Do you have any fangirls/fanboys?
Rhia: "Uh, A-Aaron, I guess?"
Aaron: "What?! I am not! And I do not! I think. Maybe. What the hell are those? I have friends, if that's what you're asking."
Zak: "They mean fans, Air--like groupies. Unfortunately, I've had my share. It comes with being the oldest son of the most prominent politician in Yixia."
Rique: "Yeah, I seem to remember this one brat following me everywhere. Red hair, loud voice, real moron..."
21. What are you most afraid of?
Rhia: "C-causing pain to others."
Aaron: "...Isn't it pretty obvious? Look, shut up."
Zak: "Haha, I'm afraid that's pretty personal."
Rique: "For once, I'm with the egghead and his pet shrimp."
22. What do you usually wear?
Rhia: "Wh-Whatever I c-can find. Th-They're mostly scraps, b-because I can't afford much, b-but I do have a pair of r-really nice boots."
Aaron: "Normal stuff. Shirts, jeans, running shoes. I got stuck in this one outfit for, like, weeks until Sov and Rhia worked up some stuff for us back at base camp."
Zak: "My lifestlye demands some level of grooming, so I dress fairly formally most of the time. Casual for me is slacks and a button-down..."
Rique: "Tank top, jeans, blindfold. Easy to put on, hard to fuck up."
23. What's one food that tempts you?
Rhia: "Ummmm, I r-really like baked goods."
Aaron: "ONE food? Chips! Haven't had those in FOREVER! I MISS processed food!"
Zak: "Coffee. ...It's liquidized beans, I could argue its status as a food."
Rique: "Mm, bloody meat."
24. Am I annoying you?
Rhia: "O-Oh, no, r-really, it's okay!"
Aaron: "More like you're really pissing me off."
Zak: "Be polite, Air. We agreed to this, it's really no trouble. We have no right to complain."
Rique: "Screw that. Yeah, you're annoying me."
25. Well, it's still not over!
Rhia: "Alright, then. A-Ask away."
Zak: "Don't WHINE, Air! Continue, then, whenever you're ready."
Rique: "Then why'd you even mention it?"
26. What class are you? (Low class, middle class, high class)?
Rhia: "I-I'm very l-low."
Aaron: "Higher than high. Adopted son of the richest guy in the city, for all the good that did me."
Zak: "Yes, we're about as high class as you can get."
Rique: "I'm a bit out of the class system, but I suppose that'd put me at the bottom of the pyramid. Near top of the food chain, though."
27. How many friends do you have?
Rhia: "I-I'm really not sure... I've n-never actually counted, hehe."
Aaron: "...Like, four, okay? And yeah, that's counting Gretch."
Zak: "I don't have many close friends, but I have many political ones and school acquaintances. I suppose that puts me at four or so."
28. What are your thoughts on pie?
Rhia: "Oh, I l-love baking it, and I l-love eating it!"
Aaron: "That so? Because now that you mention it, Rhia, pie is starting to sound really good..."
Zak: "It's pretty rich."
Rique: "Never had it."
30. Favorite drink?
Zak: "Coffee, again. Hold on a moment. I thought you said the last one was 28? What happened to question 29?"
Rique: "Lemonade. What? Shut the hell up."
31. What's your favorite place?
Rhia: "Th-The o-orphanage. It has lovely gre-eenh-houses and my room and a-all of the children..."
Aaron: "A field. Any field! With thick grass and stars overhead and fireflies everywhere and room to run!"
Zak: "The laboratory on the point, as well as our headquarters. They're such wells of untapped knowledge, I could explore for months and still not be done with them."
Rique: "Up a tree. Alone."
32. Are you interested in anyone?
Aaron: "Uh-huh! Rhia, of course!"
Zak: "Well, I'm still pretty interested in studying Rique."
Rique: "They mean ROMANTICALLY, genius. Obiviously not."
33. If you're a girl, what's your cup size? If you're a guy, how big are you?
Rique: "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...! Ha... ha... holy hell, their faces...!"
34. Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean?
Rhia: "I c-can't swim."
Aaron: "Me neither."
Zak: "None of us can. Water is too precious a resource within the dome, not to mention space, and outside of it there's hardly any standing water to swim in."
Rique: "Yeah, and what water there is is full of Monsters anyway."
35. What's your type?
Rhia: "Um... U-Understanding, I g-guess..."
Aaron: "I can be understanding! Absolutely! Oh, um, I like cute girls. And Rhia's the cutest!"
Zak: "I've never met anyone I thought was my type before. I'm not entirely sure I have one."
Rique: "My TYPE is the kind who'll leave me alone, so figure THAT one out."
36. Camping or indoors?
Rhia: "Ah, either one."
Aaron: "Camping, definitely!"
Zak: "Ugh. No. Indoors for me, thanks."
Rique: "I wouldn't call it camping so much as 'living outside', which I very much prefer to hiding all the time."
because these are the risks you run when 2 out of the 3 people I know personally on here have already tagged me.
