1. What was your very first MMO character and why did you choose that race?
My VERY first character was a female Tarutaru in Final Fantasy 11, I chose her because I thought Tarutaru were adorable! Plus I wanted to play a White Mage and I had heard that Tarutaru had ideal stats for that class. So a mix of adorable and min-maxing.
2. Would you rather have a tiny elephant as a pet, or a tiny kangaroo?
Tiny Elephant, sounds cuddly!
|I imagine this but not plushie.|
Probably, though I never notice unless it's pointed out to me. I think I use phrasing like "on the other hand" far too often though. Colloquialisms and other shortcuts are handy, so it's easy to fall prey to overuse.
4. You can snap your fingers and visit any city in the world. Where are you?
HOW DID I GET TO....actually I'm not sure where I would end up. London or Venice probably. I'm a giant nerd so my "to visit" list includes a lot of places Assassin's Creed has taken place in.

I've only ever had fish and my first was a little black goldfish named Shadow. I was super creative with names as a child let me tell you... However my favorite pet is a friend's cat named Loki who picked me as his person a long time ago.
6. You’re on a desert island and only have one album, one movie, and one book. What are they?
Probably the album Helios by Audiomachine, or something else of theirs. Movie would probably be Return of the Jedi. Book...hmm I'd have to go with Lord of the Rings or Hobbit, something long but imaginative. Truth be told I'd probably forgo all three if I could have a very large notebook and supply of pencils.
7. Why did you start a blog?
I heard there was big money in blogging. Truthfully I had been following some of the prominent blogging old-guard for a long time. I reached a point where simply commenting on their posts was not feeling sufficient and I felt like I had more to say. So I signed up for Blogger and here I am.
8. What’s your favorite video game soundtrack?
Chrono Trigger! All about that Robo theme. Really it's because CT's soundtrack triggers a strong nostalgia cord with me and has a nice variety. I tend to have one or two songs on a track that I really love so picking a single game means more about finding the one song I could hear forever and the rest I wouldn't immediately hate.
9. Which writers have been the most influential in your own writing?
Outside of blogging I primarily write sci-fi/fantasy and most of my inspiration comes from that, so authors like Tolkein, Patrick Rothfuss, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Margaret Atwood. That said, when it comes to blogging I find myself constantly impressed with the writing of those I follow and they push me to improve every day.
10. What is your favorite virtual hat in any game?
This might be the toughest question in the bunch because there are tons that I like, though I will almost always go for a straw hat if it's available so I'd have to say something like that. Or any time I can have some tiny, cute alien on my head.
