Fantasy writer who also dabbles in SF and horror. Most of my stuff is set in one of a handful of continuities.
Tagged by  :iconteddileah:

1. You must post the rules.

2. Each person must post 5 things about themselves in their journal.

3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create five new questions for the people you tag to answer

4. You have to choose 10 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.

5. Go to their page and tell them you have tagged them. (but doesn't this just show up on your mentions?)

6. No tag backs

7. No stuff in the tagging section about "you're tagged if you're reading this" You legitimately have to tag 10 people

I'm gonna go ahead and pre-emptively break rules 4 through 7, and the second half of rule 3.

5 facts about me!
1. Surprisingly little scares me.
2. I have no idea how I actually got into writing. It just sort of happened.
3. I'm currently playing through the Minerva's Den DLC for Bioshock 2. I forgot how much I loved the speargun.
4. My current novel is likely to be my longest.
5. The word 'glad' has always seemed weird to me.

5 questions:
1. What makes you happy? A lot of stuff. movies, books, video games, my friends, writing... 
2. What's your favorite band(s)/musician(s)?  Pink Floyd, Rush and David Bowie for when I'm reading; Sabaton, Turisas, Alestorm and Van Canto for when I'm walking somewhere.
3. What's a cool fact about yourself? I have surprisingly acidic skin. It's like a really pathetic mutant power: all it can do is slowly dissolve leather or iron watch straps. Hence why I go with stainless steel instead.
4. Coke or rootbeer?  Coke, but only because I don't think rootbeer is a thing over here. I'll probably try some eventually; I know there are a few places over here that import american stuff like that.
5. Are you a morning or night person? I do all my writing in the evening, so I'd probably say a night person. In the morning, I'm barely coherent until an hour or two after I wake up, or after a huge mug of tea. Whichever comes first.

aaaand another one!

1. Pick one of your OCs
2. Fill in the questions/statements as if you were your OCs
3. Tag four people to do this meme
4. Tell people that they been tagged with a link from your journal.

OC used - Deiliad Marcio, protagonist of my current novel. Rules 3 and 4 will be broken, of course

1.What's your name?

Deiliad Marcio. Some people call me the Marked Woman.

2. Do you know why you were named that?

I've never known another Deiliad in my life, but I know the other half. I have more tattoos than anyone I've ever met.

3. Are you single or taken?

Single and likely to stay that way.

4.Do you have any abilities or powers?

Well, I'm a Sorcerer. All five elements, plus a couple vision-based powers, all augmented by my tattoos.

5. Stop being a Mary-sue!

Are those... are those names, or...? Pretty weird names.

6.Can you change your eye color?

No. Can anyone?

7. Hair color?

Blonde. Bright-ish. 

8. Have you any family members?

I guess my parents are all still alive, as far as I know, so... probably.

9. How about pets?

I'm not good with animals. Although most of my encounters are with horses and trolls; I don't have room for the former, and the latter have this really bad habit of trying to kill me.

10. That's cool, I guess... Now tell me something you don't like.

The Old Me.

11. Do you have any activities/hobbies you like to do?

I... I don't know, in all honesty. Solving murders seems like a strange hobby, but I suppose that's the closest thing I have. The New Me is still trying to work out just who she is.

13. Ever...killed anyone before?

Yes. Very yes.

14. What kind of animal are you?

A hound: dangerous if you're on the wrong side of me, but loving if you're not.

15. Name your worst habits.

I always go too far in a fight. It's gotten a lot of people killed, some of whom... I'd rather not talk about.

16. Do you look up to anyone?

Last time I did, he tied me down and heavily tattooed me to see what it would to to my magic. No mentors. Never again.

17. Are you gay, straight, or bisexual?

I'm asexual. I'm not quite sure of my romantic orientation; for the moment, I've settled on bisexual, although I've been too busy trying to solve a couple of murders to really think it through.

18. Do you go to school?

School? Like, the College of Sorcery? My family couldn't afford that, so no. Never needed the place anyway.

19. Ever wanna marry and have kids one day?

I wouldn't mind kids with the right person, I just... don't want to do the kind of things you have to do to get kids.

20. Do you have any fangirls/fanboys?

Thankfully no. If anyone tried to copy the Old Me... well, the New Me would have something to say about it, to say the least.

21. What are you most afraid of?

The Old Me. Anyone who can burn a village to the ground has earned my fear. Either her, or water.

22. What do you usually wear?

 There's this one green cloak I wear a lot. 

23. What's one food that tempts you?

Anything Cogin has cooked.

24. Am I annoying you?

I'm more confused than annoyed. Where am I? I mean, this clearly isn't Antliss, and I've never seen an Automaton this advanced.

25. Well, its still not over!

Am I trapped here? Well that's just great.

26. What class are you?

Working class, I suppose. I'm a bodyguard for an artist; steady pay, and I've always got a roof over my head, but I won't be buying myself anything nice any time soon.

27. How many friends do you have?

Four, maybe five.

28. What are your thoughts on pie?

Cogin cooked this incredible steak pie a few weeks back for Lord Derau. Saved some for me: delicious.

30. Favorite drink?


31. What's your favorite place?

The room I share with Cogin.

32. Are you interested in anyone~?


33. If your a girl what's your cup size? If you're a guy, how big are you?

Cup size? I... drink out of the same size cups as everyone else, I suppose?

34. Would you rather swim in lake or an ocean?

What part of 'afraid of water' are you not getting here? Last time I swam, I almost drowned. And being tortured with water really puts you off the stuff.

35. What's your type?

Type? Oh, as in... in a partner? I don't know. Like I said, I'm still trying to figure all that out.

36. Any fetishes?

I don't even know what this means.

37. Seme or Uke?

Are these names too? I don't know who these people are. Doesn't seem like any language I've seen before, either.

38. Camping or indoors?

Indoors. I've done enough travelling to appreciate having a roof over my head.

Well, you see, I remembered that I still had requests to complete on this account, so I thought I'd complete them before deactivating. :shrug:
