Heya everyone! As we near the end of May, I am going to open up the floor for an ASK ME ANYTHING.

Anything you are remotely curious about-- involving fandom, RL, favorite characters, songs, pairings, hobbies-- my life is an open book. I will answer it to the best of my knowledge-- And hey! Do the same in your journal, so myself and your friends can ask you questions! Let's get to know each other-- everyone!
alwaysbeenasmiler: (Mio☆'Why are you so far away?')
In the past couple of days (or perhaps even the past week) we've had an influx of new people to Dreamwidth (way to go LJ, screwing it up-- and after all the great memories that were had, dumb ass russia TOS) so welcome, to all the new friends that I've met on the addme group! (and it's anime subgroup), it's nice to meet many and all of you, and I hope that we shall all be happy friends together!

A brief little introduction-- my name is Nia-- I did my time on LJ from 2001 - 2012 and then I broke up with my ex-girlfriend and just couldn't stand being in that venue anymore, so I moved to DW and have been sort of going back and forth here, fluctuating between periods of activity and inactivity-- this current influx of activity is in part due to an anxiety disorder that I sort of am now realizing is a bit of a problem (I would like to say that it was never there, but I know that I've been using periods of escapism in order to push it under the carpet, not a thing that has been healthy in my life). I am predominately a reader and a gamer (mostly JRPGs, though I've had forays into western styled RPGs when the mood arrives-- I used to make tons of icons, but then I realized that I'm much happier when I make a few icons here and there, and I used to write fics about video games, but well I've lost those voices in my head (or probably a better word is that I have the voices not be so deafening)

So I'm not artsy, I don't watch as much anime as I used to and I ramble-- a lot. I love books, history, cats-- I am just an agnostic, slytherin ENFP with a love for pop and romance novels, who is probably married to my PS4 (much to my boyfriend's chagrin-- but he has no room to complain, he can binge watch entire seasons of reality TV quite happily). Him and myself are currently house-hunting for the perfect house, for our two cats and a kitchen big enough that I can do all sorts of cooking experiments of doom (I can make some badass chocolate chip cookies though)

So thank you for adding me! Hopefully you don't find me boring!

There was once upon a time where I was just a book nerd-- I think I was 14 or 15 and it was in the 90s, and I WAS a geek, I was a very big geek-- I didn't watch a whole lot of TV though, and while I wrote stories-- it was my own made up world-- and oh yes, the occasional anime on SCI-FI's JAPANIMATION WEEK (yes, that made me wince a bit just typing it out). I did play video games, but they were the standard platformers-- Sonic, Mario, Zelda and all that-- I wasn't really personally invested in it.

Until one summer day, in fact the very first day that I ever babysat these kids-- Their mom was a nurse and I had a full 10 hour day, five days a week with them-- or was starting it. They were playing this game called FF3 (or really it was FFVI but hey, silly americans), it was a NEW game, just came out and they had powered through it. They liked to pretend they were these characters, dress up like them-- and they conned me into being this escaped general with augmented magic (can you see where I'm going with this). And I played along with it because.. hahahaha hijinks!

Then they played this game in front of me-- more specifically, it was this scene where they are at this opera house and there is some impersonation going on; one of the members of your party looks exactly like a famous opera singer, and there's this note left by this mysterious person saying he was coming for her. Then come to find out there are 3 different groups coming for this singer.. including a quirky purple opera house.

It was love (not about the purple octopus, though I am an Ultros fangirl)

It was Setzer Gabbiani, gambler and airship engineer-- this guy had swag, oh god. with his long white wavy hair and his bomb ass gambler jacket-- he was a regular OG. To 14 year old me, that was the epitome of class and adventure-- to an ENFP like me, I could relate to him, wanted to have adventures, my own airship.. and yes, perhaps the love was in the fact that inherently I could relate to him-- I mean I wasn't a guy and I didn't look at him, but I think in my own personal soul, I was just as free spirited at him, or at least I wanted to be. I inserted him into all my stories (it wasn't a Mary Sue though because the heroine was a created character that was NOT like me-- I will argue this to my dying day). No matter what though, he went down as being my first favorite fictional character in a video game setting. (and he wouldn't be the last)

Setzer Gabbiani is like the pioneer, he paved the way for other video game, and yes even animated characters (following after him was Malachite from Sailor Moon-- in which I realize that I have a TYPE, i.e long white hair)

So question, everyone!

Who was your first favorite fictional character?

So I was pulling up to the ATM to get money out (stupid roommate once again shorted his side of rent), and when I pulled in the ATM was covered in some sort of cream-- I don't know if it was whipped cream or shaving cream but it was gross-- totally gross.

I merely said, "NO THANK YOU!" and was bam out of there. I don't know what went through those people's heads but I bet the security camera footage that the bank views in the morning will be one hell of a party.
