4. What makes you angriest/most frustrated right now?

Right now? Dunno. I'm pretty chill. Most recently, myself.

7. What is your favourite t-shirt?

Errr. I have this red-pink one on I rather like.

8. Something about you that most people don't know? Extra points if it is interesting.

I wrote for a supplement for a roleplaying games back when I was around 20. I'm pretty sure I only got that job because a guy who was already working on a supplement wanted to get into my pants and convinced his friend of hiring me. It was fun writing it though.

for [livejournal.com profile] tomboy_typist

1. ASOIAF: Your top five pairings. Gushing is a bonus.
Sandor/Sansa : hit me hard from reading the book. It's an interesting mix of creepy and sweet and a great execution of the classic Beauty & Beast archetype. I remember when I first finished read CoK I went back to re-read all their chapters together ;)
Jaime/Brienne: they're so adorable and snarky together! Also love the reverse Beauty&Beast and the way it works on several layers (the honour as well as their appearance).
Theon/Jon: probably my favourite crack hatesex pairing for ASOIAF. Besides the hot hatesex appeal, it's an interesting pairing to explore their respective daddy issues and feeling of not!belonguing (which is exactly why they hate each others so much ^^)
Jaime/Loras: Well that scene where Jaime is all "Loras is minime!" and they are all cocky and snarky at each others is pretty awesome, thus pairing created. Yummy.
Cersei/Sansa: soooo messed up, but an excellent pairing to explore mindfuck and fairytale archetypes.

2. Do you write at all in French? If so, is there a difference in what you write/how you write it? Speaking of which, is French your first language?
Well, I'm capable of writing in French, and it is my first language, but I seldom write fiction in it, at least not for a long time. I never wrote any fanfic in French (though my first Buffy fanfics got translated back in the days).
I think there' a difference in how we wrote any languages because of the inherent differences between languages lol so yes. They have their own rhythm, sonorities, structures, so of course it influences how we write. I find writing in English helps me not feeling like it "sounds false" when I write fanfiction.

3. If you could change just one thing about the world, what would it be? Discuss.
I'd like to make people more aware about issues of racism, sexism, homophobia etc. not just the way they seem obvious, but the way they seep in everywhere unconsciously.

4. Dancing with the Wolves or Singing in the Rain? Why one and not the other?
Errr, one's a racist overly long movie with Kevin Costner and the other is a charming and fun musical. I think I'll take Singing in the Rain!!

5. Just very randomly, your opinions on Tolkien? I don't remember whether or not you're involved at all with that fandom etc etc.
I'm not in the fandom, though I read Lord of the Rings many times when I was younger. I don't have any particular opinion (especially since I haven't read it in a loooong time). He's a good writer with a lot of qualities, but neither do I think he's the best ever; I find accusations of manicheism etc. levelled at his writing are very unfair since his work was much more nuanced and his characterisation contained many grey areas. Anyway if you wanna know, my favourite part of the book was the return to the shire, my favourite character Faramir, and my favourite pairings Legolas/Gimli, Merry/Pippin, Faramir/Eowyn; and I had a big soft spot for all the almost-mostly-evil characters like Saroumane, Gollum, Grima & Orcs who captured Merry & Pippy #1 & 2. I never liked Gandalf.
I liked the movies but mostly for opposite reasons to what I liked in the books.

Top Five Lairs for [livejournal.com profile] littleduchess
1. Akio's Astronomy Tower: because it multitasks! (does it show I've been rewatching Utena?)
2. The Room of Requirement: see above.
3. Drosselmeir's behind the scenen space. Mostly for the multiple screens option. Also, pretty wheels.
4. The Dai Li's secret hideout in Lake Laogai. Cuz it's creepy and efficient, and big enough to hide a flying buffalo.
5. The Diet Palace and the Tokyo City Hall most for the lol factors of having secret lairs in two of the most high profile political buildings of Tokyo, and for reframing as X's really about the fights between the Legislative and the Executive Power!

Top five preferred beverages for [livejournal.com profile] catiechu
1. Tea. Green and Oolong teas are my favourite, but I love other blends as well :)
2. Cider
3. Wine. I've started to properly appreciate wine - especially red wine - only recently, but now I'm pretty fond of it.
4. Whiskey
5. Rhum
NB: I don't drink soda. At all. Nor Coffee.

Top Five Favorite Fruits Basket Characters for [livejournal.com profile] honest_illusion
1. Shigure: as mentionned somewhere in the comments of my previous entries, Shigure's been my favourite FB characters from beginning and only got more so as he became darker and more manipulative. It's a character type I adore in general (Caring Manipulative Bastard), but i think Shigure's actually my one time favourite of those.
2. Momiji: because he's adorable, and wise, and sly on occasions ♥
3. Rinne: because she's fierce, hot and fragile all at the same time, all in edges and angles. Again a type of characer I always adore.
4. Hatsuharu: another case of being adorable and wise, and I also love the way his bipolarity works.
5. Hana-chan: she really cracks me up and she's also very sweet
BONUS 6: Hiro: on account of reminding me of PSME's Ring, mostly, and generally speaking for being a sarcastic, precautious, arrogant smartass who's all awkward at emotions related things.*

Will do the rest of the tomorrow!

Top Five Fictionnal Kisses for [livejournal.com profile] curtana

1. Ruka/Juri's kiss in Azure Paler than the Sky. Because she bites him, and he uses it to mindfuck her steal her locket XD
2. Jack/Elizabeth at the end of Dead Man's Chest. I'm not much of a shipper for PotC, but I do love my eros/thanatos manipulative kisses of death, and that one was PERFECT.
3. There's this yaoi by Setona Mizushiro which is called "le jeu du chat et de la souris" in the french translation which has got some very, very hot kisses.
4. Sansa's dreamed kiss with Sandor which didn't actually happen (not that the scene at the end of CoK wasn't hot enough even without it)
5. Spike/Buffy's dream kiss in OMFH & the one in Tabula Rasa. I'm not a shipper anymore and not much of a fan either, but when I see those kisses in fanvids occasionnaly, I am reminded that, yes, they're ridiculously hot kisses.

Questions by [livejournal.com profile] redcandle17

1. If you had to live in one country other than France, which one would it be?
I've pondered this, and the answer's New Zealand :) It's an anglo-saxon countrie, so I can speak the language, it's no freaking cold like Canada, it doesn't ban abortion like Ireland, and it's relatively liberal unlike the US and Australia - earliest countrie to give women's right to vote, I believe - and, err, I forget why I had eliminated the UK. Probably on account of bad weather/crackful culture.

Anyway, New Zealand looks like a pretty place, landscape wise, too

2. What was your favorite subject in school?
French. Comes with the love for reading and argumenting. I also liked History a fair deal (wasn't very good at it, though) and Biology.

3. What year did you first read ASoIaF?
I think I started reading it in the summer of 2000. Read aSoS in late 2000 - early 2001, I'm sure.

4. What's your favorite alcoholic drink?
Depends for what. During a dinner, wine, unless it's crepes, then cider. Cider's also my choice for pre-dinner drinking. After dinner it's whiskey :)

5. If you could rid the world of one species, which would you choose for extinction?
Some kind insect species whose removal won't have a big impact on the ecosystem, I guess.

From the interview meme, questions by [livejournal.com profile] deeplyunhip

1. Do you usually get along well with children?
Hmmm. Yeah, I guess I do. Although I seldom spend a lot of time with children.

2. What is one way your personality has changed significantly since you were a child?
I used to be much more spontaneous, outgoing and trusting. Now, I can be pretty reserved and quiet, unless I get turned on by a specific subject or feel at ease with specific people. And I, err, don't really trust many people.

3. Describe a typical day in your life these days.
I'm not doing much of my day currently, so this is a pretty embarrassing question. I get up pretty late, around noon. Get online, eat breakfast, stay online, perhaps watch some downloaded TV series or anime on my computer, perhaps read some manga scanlations, perhaps read a book, and stay oline until late.

4. What was your #1 favorite episode of House?
I'll give a conservative answer : the season 1 finale, for the cool structure and meta-ness and character exploration and generally speaking beng good television. Bonus point for the s2 finale as well for the robotsex and surreality and mindfuck.

5. If you had the ability to kill any three people in the world right now with no consequence whatsoever, would you do it? If so, who would you pick?
If possible I'd "keep" the ability in case I'm ever in a situation of using them in self-defense or the defense of someone else : that's the only occasion I think it's allright to take someone's life.

You Are a Lizard



You are intuitive and sensitive.

You pay close attention to your subconscious and your dreams.



You embrace your fears and the darker side of life.

It's easy for you to be detached and objective when you need to be.



You are able to let go easily. You don't get attached to much.

And considering how often you change course, people shouldn't get too attached to you.

People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves. Tag 8 people. Those who are tagged cannot refuse. These 8 people must state who they were tagged by. You cannot tag the person who tagged you. Continue this game by sending this to 8 other people.
