4. I think one theme I enjoy writing about is the theme of good intentions vs the consequences. I think the majority of my characters have some sort of good in mind that they like to achieve, but then they do terrible things along the way, or they otherwise cause something that’s just overall bad whether they mean to or not. It’s the easiest to follow this theme with heroes or self-proclaimed heroes, and they can still do good things overall, but it doesn’t excuse the bad. It still manages to find its way into not-so-heroic characters, though. A lot of people (or my characters at least) do things under their own assumption that it’s right, but I think my more villainous characters are either more willing to recognize that they’ve done bad things and they feel it justifies what they’re doing, or they’re completely blind to the damage they’re causing. My villains don’t kick dogs and babies without any reason at all. They just don’t. But it doesn’t mean it’s an adequate reason.
I know this doesn’t apply to ALL of my characters, but I find that it’s a theme that crops up often.
…But yeah, it’s really no wonder so many of my characters are morally grey.
Sorry for rambling. Apparently, I had a lot to say on that topic.
13. My favorite writers? Oh jeez. I… really can’t pick. I’m sorry.
acerbicaftertaste asked: In honor of Azzie, I ask for story secrets. Also your favorite soup.
Reina is a robot.
…Heh, in seriousness, there are only so many story secrets I can share without getting into spoiler territory. I guess I could say that one reason Reina wears a mask is actually a really good reason.
Favorite soup? I like a lot of soups, and it depends on what strikes me. I do like Miso soup, though. And beef stew is one of my favorites.
Chlorophobia. That has got to be a odd phobia to see in real life.
It’d be odd indeed. Though a cursory search tells me that it’s happened before. But it sounds like there might be some good reasons for one to form, though.
That would also be an acceptable real-life solution to problems.
…Well, I’ll be honest, I don’t know what that did.

Green assuming we’re viewing the flight of the winged hamster from Mercury.
Anonymous asked: Whisk way do you do it?
Analogous to the rotation of most planets in the solar system unless I feel like going against the system, in which case analogous to the rotation of Venus.
Anonymous asked: Ooh, ask memes! What's your favorite book? :D
Oh geez, that’s a tough question that changes all the time. Hmm…
I don’t suppose textbooks count? Particularly mathy, science-y, or psych-y ones?
If not, then I guess maybe… Gah, I can’t name one. Well… Fatelessness by Imre Kertesz was pretty intriguing. Shakespeare stuff can be fun too. …To be honest though, I’ve never been one to pick a single favorite book.

I… I don’t know.
No one’s ever called me adorable before. o///o
