Well, it seems the time is right to reveal a few more facts about me, as I got tagged by my friend
a couple of weeks ago. Here is, what she wanted to know – an I'm trying to answer her questions as good as I can.
Hmmm … I had to think about that for a while. Actually … there is no special one. I simply like every Holiday, because every Holiday is a day where no alarm clock is jolting me out of my sleep early in the morning.
It has been Science Fiction back in the 80s. After the Fall of the Wall I came in contact with Fantasy for the first time in my life. R.A. Salvatore's "Forgotten Realms" were the first novels I read – and their influence is still lasting.
Nevertheless I do like the combination of the two genres: Sci-Fi and Fantasy walking hand in hand, like in the "Shadowrun"-Books for instance.
Another question that is not easy to answer. There have been a couple of such experiences in my life. But which one could be number one? … I think, it's the first time I smelled the scent of Frangipani flowers.
No, I don't. I'm not collecting crown caps, stamps, picture postcards, action figures … I'm collecting nothing in fact. It's weird, isn't it?
It's autumn. Late autumn, when the sun breaks through the november fogs. It's a wonderful quiet, grey-golden world.
"The Adventures of Aladár Mézga" – Does anyone here know this Hungarian TV Show about the Mézga Family?
Nope. Fortunately not.
Do you think Cryptids (Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, Jackalopes, Mothman, etc.) exist?
Honestly? … No, I don't believe they exist. They're modern Wendersnavens. (I'm sorry, Grobnar…)
Ever have a crush on a fictional character (anime, video game, book, TV show, Movie)
Am I a woman? Yes I am. So – yes, I had them. And not only one. I really could come up with a long list, starting with Mr. Spock and ending with another pointy-eared-fellow of a totally different kind.
It's the music of Giacomo Puccini that always makes me weep like a willow. I know the trick he was using – but there's nothing I can do against it all the same. I'm absolutely prone to it.
That's it. Are you still with me? OK – then, here's the point, where I have to tag ten other people …
No don't worry. I'm not going to do this. This is what I'm going to do instead:
For the first 10 people to comment on this journal, I will feature of one their characters (may it be original or fan-characters). I'll also tell you what I like about them. (To feature OCs I should know them, so you should link me to your characters if I don't know them that much. And there should be information available about your characters, too...
As one of my characters (guess, who?
) has been featured by
a few weeks ago, the first slot belongs to Chenria and her quite … swinging character Shari:
is one of the protagonists of Chenria's fantasy story project "Amathea". She is a concubine, and although she belongs to the slave class, she is quite wealthy since she is one of the most popular concubines and men pay a fortune to spend a night with her. There's something special about here: she can ride ostriches.
2. One of my favorite the OCs of
is Yokai Ichisame
from the Naruto-Universe. She is an Ice-Shaman ... and nonetheless she likes hot and spice food (just like me ...
started to create her own, "true" original characters like Finn or Ridge, there has been Kierran Amell
, her Grey Warden mage from "Dragon Age Origins", who caught my attention - because he was part of a sory named "Wind by the Fireside" (which definitively belongs to another favorite realm of mine
4. When thinking of
s OCs most of you certainly think of Del Farlong. But do you also know Cadence
, her unsociable, unemotional, reserved and a bit autistic human Favoured Soul? I never managed to play an evil character, all of my attempts ended up somewhere in the middle of the game, but Cadence made it.
5. Although I know that
has quite a handful of OCs the one I know and like best is her Knight Captain Thalia Dawnbringer
. Did you know that this powerful, half-celestial being, who wields blazes of fire as well as two sharp Katanas, is afraid of frogs?
6. Bastian Rave
's OC of my choice. To me he's slightly related to my (and Mojja's as well) favorite con artist Locke Lamora. Bastian is an orphan, who - after he run away from the orphanage - was rised by a pirat, and - became a pirat. You can't see it in the picture I've chosen, but I can assure you: he's got the most enchanting blue eyes you can imagine.
7. Please meet Kit
's character from a dark fantasy RPG campaign. Kit is a half-elven ranger. She's a crack with the bow, yet on the other hand tries to kill only if there's no other way out of trouble.
