043. it's meme time.

If you comment here with the words "I wanna play" I will assign you a number from 15-30 of facts about yourself to post about yourself in your journal.

[personal profile] muladhara gave me 16!

01. I love things that taste bitter or sour--I used to love sour sweets as a child, but now I'm much more fond of sour fruit (my mom thinks it's weird that I can eat lemons without pulling a face). I'm not too fond of salt though--I won't season anything with salt unless it's cold chicken or very bland potatoes.

02. I wouldn't describe myself as being very fashion conscious (although I have my own style that I've slowly begun experimenting more with), but I do love playing dress-up games. (I have an unfortunate tendency to overmatch colours, probably because I spend most of my life wearing blue.)

03. Incidentally, blue is my favourite colour. (Followed by red and green, with gold, black, and silver as accent colours.)

04. I'm a Virgo/Libra cusp baby, but I'm also a sheep/ram/goat in the Chinese zodiac, which feels to me like astrologically no one can make up their mind about me. (I tend to identify more with Virgo traits, and I like telling people I'm a metal goat, because it's possibly the most metal zodiac sign you can be. \m/)

05. I know that Rivendell is both an Elven outpost in Tolkein's works and a song by the prog rock band Rush, because my dad made sure to impress that this knowledge "might one day save [my] life, in case [I'm] kidnapped by a crazed elf".

06. My dad is also responsible for my love of mythology, which I've had since I was very young--I've grown up with Arthurian legend and Classical mythology, which is why they're the two I know the most about, but I find all mythology fascinating.

07. My three favourite films that I've seen for the first time this year are probably Inside Out, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Kamikaze Girls.

08. I enjoy stories that feature one character repeating or changing a timeline in the attempt to save their loved one (whether they fail or succeed). I actually really like stories about time in general, but looping until they get their intended outcome is my favourite.

09. I used to collect Monster High dolls for a while, before they started releasing tons of new characters and I had to start saving my money for university. I still like a lot of the dolls, and I really want the spider lady (wynona?), but I'm collecting S.H.Figuarts now instead.

10. My top three favourite alcohols are probably Jim Bean, Southern Comfort (with Lime, preferably), and cherry wine.

11. I love well-thought-out fanfiction AUs, whether mundane or fantastical (but my preference is for fantastical--the more explanation you can give for why a character would be X, the more I'll love it), but my absolute favourite are daemon AUs. I don't really care what is happening in your story, so long as the characters have daemons.

12. My favourite Pokemon are Scraggy, Rapidash, Dragonair, Milotic, Dialga, and Probopass. My favourite Pokemon-type is Dragon, followed by Fire and Dark.

13. I really love word puzzles, especially Arrowords and Wordsearches, and I like logic puzzles but I'm not very good at them. Sudoku and nonograms/Picross are a pretty fun way to pass the time too.

14. I don't like cake (other than chocolate cake, and even then, there's other desserts I'd rather have) but I do enjoy baking cake. I prefer cupcakes because they're less sickly, but my favourite desserts are cheesecake and brownies (and, for the ultimate combination, cheesecake brownies).

15. When I was younger, I wanted to be a vet, until I realised I was actually quite squeamish. Then I watched Space Jam and wanted to be a basketball player. Then I wanted to be a writer. Now I don't know what I want to do, but it probably involves writing about film theory.

16. I like dogs and cats, but I prefer cats as pets because I don't have the energy for dogs myself. Big dogs can be quite scary if they're aggressive, but otherwise I really love most dogs, especially if they're friendly.

Oh I love sour sweets! My special talent is eating them without pulling faces (I've never tried an actual lemon, though. Might have to just to see if I can...)

Totally with you on dressing up games and yeahhh, I overmatch colours as well (and blue is my favourite and what I wear the most of).

Aw yiss Arthurian legend! (And classical mythology. And if you ever want to nerd about mythology, ever, I am about :) )

Also aw yiss re: time loops, etc. I love that sort of shit! Especially the looping till desired outcome thing. What would you say is your favourite story/media featuring that sort of thing? (I'm always looking for recs on stuff, and hardly anyone recs me time travel shenanigans :( )

I feel the same about cake, and dogs, as well.

I was going to ask if you'd seen Madoka Magica, and then I thought to myself that that kind of spoilt the surprise of Homura being able to time travel if I did, so I didn't. But yes! I really liked that aspect (although there's a lot of things I love about PMMM. I need to rewatch it).

I've got the first ep of Life is Strange to play on my Xbox, but I haven't got to it yet (I'm terrible at hoarding games and then not playing them, heh).
