Scary Asks: Answered by me

I was browsing Tumblr the other day looking at pictures of Autumn scenery (again), and I ran upon this list of asksIt’s perfect for my blog! I thought. It’s so creative and cute! So, here are the questions, and my answers. 🙂 If I wasn’t working on other things (comic!!), I’d make illustrations to go with it. In the future, hopefully I’ll have time to do things like that!

VAMPIRE: SOMEONE OFFERS YOU A CHANCE AT IMMORTALITY. DO YOU TAKE IT, AND WHY OR WHY NOT?

YES. If I had the chance to become immortal, then there’s no way that I would turn it down, even if I had to become a vampire. I’d go the route of looking for donors, though, instead of stealing blood from people who didn’t want to give it. And under no circumstance would I drink animal blood. Hey, if I was immortal, I could wait as long as possible to eat if there weren’t any willing donors, right?

WEREWOLF: IF YOU HAD TO SPEND YOUR LIFE WITH JUST ONE PERSON, WHO WOULD IT BE? 

Does it have to be human? Then it would be Sansa and Luna. I choose both, and you can’t make me choose otherwise. If it would have to be human, I would say the love of my life. But that’s unlikely, as the girl I love right now doesn’t want to live forever, so she’s going to be gone long before I will. 🙁

WITCH: IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT THE WORLD, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I would turn everyone vegan. It sounds extreme, I know, but erasing religion would be my second choice, which is no less extreme, really. I want a world full of compassion, although to be honest, who knows what would really happen if one day someone snapped her fingers and those realities came to pass? :O Food for thought. Possibly a good idea for a novel/manga!

GHOST: DO YOU HAVE ANY REGRETS?

I do. I think that most people do, really. If you don’t then you’re either very lucky, or not thinking about it very hard.. My biggest regret is that one person that I dated a number of years ago that really hurt me. I should have kept looking and listened to myself more closely. Actually, I should have listened to myself more closely from the beginning, from when I was a child, and not let society influence me so strongly. I have paid for that self-doubt dearly.

FRANKENSTEIN: IS SOMEONE TELLING YOU HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE, OR ARE YOU AN INDEPENDENT PERSON?

Now, I’d like to think that I’m calling my own shots. I’m my own boss. I don’t change the things that I truly want, or how I truly want to live, for anyone.

MUMMY: IF YOU WERE TO FALL INTO AN ETERNAL SLEEP, DO YOU THINK ANYONE WOULD MISS YOU?

Yes. My cats, my family, and friends should all miss me. It would be pretty sad if they didn’t!

ZOMBIE: DO YOU MISS ANYONE RIGHT NOW?

Right now, I miss my best friends Lauren, and Adrian… They live in different parts of the world, but if I had the money, I’d jump on planes and visit them all of the time!

FAERIE: IF YOU COULD GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

Anything? I’d appropriate a LOT of money from somewhere. Then, I’d invest a lot of it, and have so much left over that even if I spent a million per day, I’d still never run out. I know that money isn’t everything, but it sure would be nice to have!

NYMPH: WHAT ARE YOU LIKE WHEN YOU’RE BY YOURSELF?

I’m quiet. I like the quiet. When I’m alone, I do a lot of reading, and snuggling or playing with my cats. I do a lot of thinking, too.

MERMAID: HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO TO KEEP THE ONE YOU LOVE?

I wouldn’t change who I was fundamentally, but I would change small things that didn’t affect who I was. You know what I mean? I’d stop jaywalking, etc etc, those kinds of things. I’d also go really far to make her happy. I’d make the kinds of changes that made her, and myself by consequence, happy. Like, if making her breakfast in bed every morning made her happy, I’d get up a half hour early every morning to do it. Gladly.

SHAPESHIFTER: WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE ABOUT YOURSELF?

Overall, I’ve been trying to get into better shape, and I would love to have straight, white teeth. Because of fevers when I was a baby, they were stained permanently, so the only way to do that is to get veneers. I saved up for it once, but had to use my savings when I lost a job. And we’re talking $20,000 or more when I talk about veneers, which would have to be preceded by braces (probably invisalign). It will happen one day, though! Aside from aesthetics, I’d like to be a lot more tactful, and less easy to hurt. I’d like for it to be easier to talk to people, too. I’ve been working on all of those things, although people around me will tell you that it’s not always working!

BANSHEE: IF YOU KNEW ONE OF YOUR LOVED ONES/BEST FRIENDS HAD ONLY ONE DAY LEFT TO LIVE, HOW WOULD YOU SPEND THAT LAST DAY WITH THEM?

Doing whatever they wanted, within reason. No breaking the law and no cheating, and nothing that would make me feel bad (eating meat, etc), but I’d be open to a lot of other things! If it’s their last day, it would be their choice.

SIREN: IF YOU COULD MAKE ANYONE DO ANYTHING, WHAT WOULD YOU MAKE THEM DO?

I would make someone who was really rich but never earned it and didn’t deserve it (like Paris Hilton), give me her/his fortune with no strings attached.

GENIE: IF YOU HAD ONE WISH THAT WOULD COME TRUE AND COULDN’T BE REVERSED, WHAT WOULD YOU ASK FOR?

Again, money. I would wish for a LOT of money. JK Rowling levels of money, with no strings attached and no devastation required to achieve it.

FURY: WHAT IS A WORD/PHRASE THAT YOU DREAD TO HEAR?

That something has happened to my cats.  D:  D:  D:

INCUBUS: WHAT WOULD SOMEONE HAVE TO DO TO GET IN YOUR PANTS?

Be my one and only. No, really, I don’t sleep with people randomly. Some do, and that’s great, but for me, sex and love are linked, and I’ve always wanted THE ONE. The people who have gotten in my pants were the one, or at least I thought so. Those that are gone were all liars.

SUCCUBUS: WHAT’S ONE THING YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT?

I think that if it came down to it, there are a few things that would make life harder for me (losing my cats, my love, books, computers, the internet, paper), but the only thing that I couldn’t live without would be necessities like air, water, and food. I’m pretty strong and flexible otherwise! If you’ve been reading my blog/livejournal over the years, you probably know why. 😉

Well, that’s it! See you tomorrow, I hope! I have another few things that I want to write about. Actually, there’s plenty! And feel free to give me suggestions! It’s time to get to work drawing manga again! <3
