I don't know what I'm looking for here, really. I haven't had much interest in romance at any point in my life (only relationship was with a girl, about 9 years ago). This is something new for me. An experiment! Thanks for taking the time to look. As you could probably guess from the length of each section of my profile, I tend to care a lot about fictional worlds and works, maybe more than I care about the real world.
I'm a good listener, and my advice is usually sound. If one of my friends is distressed, I'd like to do something to fix it.
Baking! I've recently started doing more of it, and the results have ranged from decent to delicious!
Favorite books, in no particular order:
-The Sound and the Fury, by William Faulkner
-Lost Souls, by Poppy Z. Brite
-The Still, by David Feintuch
-Watership Down, by Richard Adams
-Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, by J.K. Rowling (I adore the whole series, but a large part of that is the impact it had on my life rather than the actual books themselves.)
-Twelfth Night, by William Shakespeare
-more to come...
Favorite movie. The only movie I can say is my absolute favorite:
Favorite shows, ordered as they came to mind:
-The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (even season 2. Yes, even Endless Eight)
-Supernatural (until season 5)
-My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Favorite video games:
-The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (but I love Ocarina, Majora's Mask, and Skyward Sword, and enjoyed Twilight Princess)
-Final Fantasy VII
(I only play games that are popular; I only play the games the magazines tell me to buy!)
-Whatever. Nearly anything. Play it for me enough times and I'll probably start to like it, except for certain really irritating songs. I like pop music, country, sad teenage boys with electric guitars, showtunes, whatever.
Okay, turning off the snark (maybe [no promises]). What does “6 things I could never do without” even mean, anyway? I would say, “Internet,” but I have survived without that. Books? It would be rough, but there are other outlets for creative stimulation. I love my friends and my family, but saying “friends” here would be SO CHEESY.
This prompt is silly.
I do think about serious things too. Really. I keep up with world events and national news, and I do contemplate the things that are going on. I just don't like dwelling on it too much, because it's depressing and I'm powerless to fix things.
I do leave the house, too! I'll hang out with my friends, frequently doing tabletop roleplaying or Magic: The Gathering. Movie marathons with a lot of people are great, too, especially if you pick a theme.
