-Reading. I’m such a geek. I hardly go out, and when I do, it’s usually my friends pulling. Reading has been my life for many years; I have a very high capacity to absorb and memorize everything that I read, and I do so very fast. I like complicated reads, as well as light ones. I read everything that lands on my hands except for romance (except for Jane AustenXD).
-Travelling. I LOVE to go abroad; I wouldn’t say “no” to any journey to an unknown place, and many that I have been to. It’s fascinating and you find in this a richness that’s lacking from everything else in life.
-Writing. It’s how I want to live, so I better like itXD. I love writing for the same reasons I love reading. Though it tends to make me obsessed when I’m immersed in it. I'm veyr good at it, too, or so I've been told
-Discussion and arguing. I love this. My mom hates itXD. I feel enthusiasm sharing my conclusions and POVs, and acquiring new ones (and information) from other people. And, as I’m a VERY hard and aggressive discussion partner, I feel a lot of power while doing it
Favourite number is 9, since forever; don't know why.
My favourite type of music is punk rock, but my favourite song in all time is "Now and Then" by Blackmore's Night. I also dig japanese music (and musiciansXD)
My favourite season is spring, because the weather is nicest, and people are more cheerful too, my favoruite animals are wolfs or cats.
My favourite magical creature are vampires, and I like to dress in gothic-punk clothes .
I love films. Favourite filmakers are Steven Spielberg, both Coppolas, Fritz Lang, Hitchcock, Murnau, Lars von Trier, Tim Burton, Baz Luhrmann and the incredible freak that is Kevin SmithXD
And finally, I love books. They're my most precious possesion
-Weak, pessimistic or dependent people. I'm probably the opposite to them, and I get very frustrated and treat them harshly without meaning to,so I tyr to avoid them.
-Making myths out of people and/or artists/musicians/actors/whatever. I particularly hate groupies with a burning passion, as I think almost any music style has stupid fans and a tendency toward machismo.
-Machismo and discriminaiton toward women.
Old people frustrate me to no end most of the time. Bratty kids, I want to slap. I have almost no respect for housewives under 40 years of age.
I wanna be a screenwriter and/or writer, and I would love to live in Paris in a big XIX century house full of artistic masterpieces and a huge library, and dress up in velvet/silk/lacy clothes
-Bees and similar insects. I can’t really explain this one, it’s something I was born with. Past experiences with them didn’t help, either, because I’ve been bit thrice: in my face, in my armpit and in my groin. Go figure
-Death of my close family. I guess that’s something most everyone would have. They’re my strongest allies and I love them fiercely
-Fail at life and never reach any of my dreams. I’m very concerned with success and with transcending in history. I’m creative and I go nuts when I can’t film, write or read and analyze something. I have huge goals and expectations; not being able to achieve them would be the worst kind of thing that could happen to me. And I love the high life, the beautiful people and the comforts of success, the big houses, expensive travelling and rich exotic foods; and of course, I love travelling and knowing new cultures and places. Not being able to know all of them by myself –and not my parents- would be the worst thing possible.
-Self-assuredness/steem. When times are hard and things look bad, this keeps me going. When insults or treasons are thrown at or made to me, this keeps me over everyone. It sometimes breaches the line and becomes my worst quality, but I love it for what it’s worth
-Intelligence. Whatever I am, I’m not stupid. I’m, actually, very intelligent, and been told so by many different people during all my life. I thrive on it
-Optimism. I’m not cynical, or very rarely so. Optimism is the best way to be to enjoy life to the fullest and be happy and cheerful. It makes you able to think the best of everything, and the same quality forbids you to be very sad when you are let down: tomorrow will be better ^.^
-Uniqueness. I know everyone's unique in his/her own way, but too many times people say this about/to me that I had to post it. Many people say that, though I'm a hard person to be around most of the time, for the mix between being generally good at things and knowing it "too much", they still stick around me because I have "something special", there's something about me that screams "not like others" or something like that. As an incredibly conceited person most of the time, I obviously loved itXDXDXD
-Arrogance. OMG, am I arrogant. And I know it, and I can’t do anything about it. I have a nice body, a sharp mind and a lot of talent at what I do. And people TELL ME. What am I supposed to think? Even so, I try to change it, since it makes my mother unhappy.
-Lazyness. This is bad, because it limits my experiences and makes it hard to work on ANYTHING. I try to change this really hard, but it’s difficult when everything’s so easy to do without doing my best.
-Naiveté. This comes from being so sheltered, and coming from a very exclusive world. This bites my ass when I try to establish romantic relationships, because I feel insecure, and that’s something I can’t stand. Trying hard to erase this one as well, but it’s proving hard.
-Harshness. I'm sometimes harsh to others, even without meaning to. I argue in a loud voice and an agressive manner, almost too agressive sometimes. I'm impatient with weak people many times, and discussing about other people's lives I often simplify things out of sheer frustration with that person
Three positive adjectives:Self-assured, brilliant, sarcastic (yes, I do think this is a good traitXD)
Three negative adjectives:Arrogant, lazy, harsh
Personality in a word:Brilliant
Optimist or pessimist?Optimistic. One of my defining characteristics
Impulsive or cautious?Generally impulsive, but that's cause I not a very logical person. Impulsive decisisions are the spice of life
Mature or immature?ImmatureXD. No question about that. Though I'm very mature where non-romantic relationships and social opinions are concerned
Extroverted or introverted?I seem an extrovert at first, but the things important to me I keep in secret and it's very hard for me to trust someone with them
Leader or follower?Leader, but that's only because leaders don't come in millions. If the right person appears, I have no problem following him/her
Emotional or collected?A bit of both, really. I'm generally more collected, but can get emotional about certain things
Patient or impatient?Impatient like all hellXD. With things that I like/want, I go nuts, evenXD
Confident or modest?Very, very, VERY confident. Modesty doesn't become meXD
Low, normal or high energy level?Normal
Morning person or not?No way; though I'm pleasant if I have slept enough, which is neverXD
Favourite character and why:Saito, of course: hardcore, cool, badass, sarcastic,elegant, sardonic, tough, feral, very sharp and observant, very intelligent, ANTI-HERO with capital letters
Kenshin himself is very sweet, too, and I have a soft spot for Sojiro because OMGbasedonOkitaSouji!!
And of course, the MOST BADASS CHARACTER EVER CREATED, Seijuro Hiko
Least favourite character and why:Kaoru. I want to slap her all the time, she's so weak and helpless and useless, she's no good for anything, she's rude and pretentious without reason for, she's annoying and clingy, very insecure and generally a bad role model all around. Everything I despise in women, she has
Aoshi is very slappable too, no matter how incredibly hot he is
Favourite pairing and why: I have a soft spot for Sanosuke/Megumi, and I feel cheated that it never came to be because the foundations are there. Misao/Aoshi is crackstaticXD.
My favourite fanon pairing, however, is Saito/Kenshin; all that pent-up agression and rivalry has to find some escapeXD; besides, they have great chemistry
Favourite arc and why:Shishio's. Hardcore, real threat, lots of good action and good character development, very interesting villains, and the three "s", Sojiro, Seijuro and Saito. I was almost rooting for Shishio at the end
Favourite song and why:First OP!!! So much fun; it would be impossile for an action, fight-oriented and very popular shonen nowadays to have such a hyper and cute introXD
Anything else?The OVAS are wayyyy better than the manga
