Today's my birthday as well as the birthday of :iconkrazy8horse:!  I know it says that my birthday's tomorrow but, once again, I'd like to point out that I lied when I first created my DA account and it won't let me change it.

I stole this from :iconhashakgig1106: and recently got back into Animorphs.  I haven't really done anything with my Animorphs OC, Brandy, in awhile.  So, here's her interview.  Her name used to be Karen, but there's already a Karen in the books, so I changed her name to Brandy.

1.) What's your name?

Brandy and I'm afraid that I can't tell you my last name.

2.) Do you know why you were named that?

My mom was a huge fan of the song, Brandy by The Looking Glass.  I'll admit, I don't really care for the song myself but it's where my name came from.

3.) Are you single or taken?


I'm single, since you can't really date when you're secretly trying to save the world from an alien takeover.  There's someone I have my eye on, but I don't think he really notices me.

4.) Have any abilities or powers?

I can morph into any animal I touch!  It can be scary and cool at the same time.

5.) Stop being a Mary Sue.

Actually, I'm not entirely sure what that is.

6.) If you were to get in a fight with a strong wrestler, do you think you'd win?

All I have to do is morph Hyena and I can take anyone down!

7.) Have any family members?

Yes, a mother, a father, a half-sister and a half-brother.  My mom was my best friend before I became an Animorph.  My dad and I don't really hang out, and I can't really stand my half-sister or my half-brother.

8.) How about pets?

I have a black cat named Luna, who was also my first morph.

9.) Tell me something that you don't like?

I don't like my sister or my brother, but I really hate the Yeerks!  Especially after they tried to trick my mother into convincing me to join The Sharing!  How many other concerned mothers and lonely kids have they manipulated to get more Controllers?  I also don't like David because he betrayed us!  I can't believe I dated that guy!

10.) Something that you do like?


I love morphing, spending time with the Animorphs and, don't tell anyone this, but I kind of like Ax in a different way than I like the rest of the Animorphs.

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


As I said, I like morphing for pleasure, even if Jake forbids it.  Though he does morph with the rest of us to get free concerts and, one time, we went to Planet Hollywood as birds.  So, he can be a bit of a hypocrite.  I also like to cook, which comes in handy when your crush loves food as much as mine does.  I also like to listen to music (especially Alanis Morissette), watch TV (Star Trek's my favorite), play video games, read and I love hanging out with the Animorphs, as I said earlier.  Rachel helps me pick out the best clothes, even I don't care for shopping that much.  I also love seeing the animals in Cassie's barn, joking around and playing video games with Marco, spending time with Ax and I sometimes fly with Tobias.  Actually, I don't really fly with Tobias as much as morph a Goshawk so I can watch Ax from a far.  He has stalk eyes that can see me if I sneak up on him as a human and I'm not really stalking him!  I just love him from afar.  Yeah, that's all!

12.) Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before?

I've hurt the Yeerks in any way I can.  Also, when I morph animals, it gets very hard to fight their instincts and I sometimes hurt their prey or fight off other invaders.

13.) Ever... killed anyone before?


Yeah, I've helped kill the slugs.

14.) What kind of animal are you?

I'm usually human but, like I said, I can morph into any animal I want as long as I have its DNA.

15.) Name your worst habits.

I'm very shy, I get tongue-tied (especially around guys I like), I tend to tell the guy what he wants to hear instead of being myself (something Rachel criticized), and I've been morphing fox to steal anti-depressants from the pharmacy and popping them.  You try being the bright and cheery one of a group that's mission is to stop an alien invasion that seems almost hopeless at times!  I'm also incredibly suspicious because anyone I talk to could have a Yeerk controlling them.  It's made me and the rest of the Animorphs more paranoid than Garak from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

16.) Do you look up to anyone at all?

That would be our leader, Jake.  He's strong, fearless and he's never stirred us wrong!  I also look up to Rachel for being the beautiful and tough one of the group, and Elfangor for being the one to give us our powers, especially because he broke Andalite law to make sure Earth had a fighting chance!

17.) Gay, straight, or bi?

I'm straight.

18.) Do you go to school?

Yes, with a vice principal who's also a Controller and tries to recruit me and the other Animorphs for The Sharing, which is the Yeerk's secret group for infestation.  I can't really tell you what school it is.

19.) Ever want to marry and have kids one day?

Right now, I'm just trying to survive this war.

20.) Do you have any fan girls/fan boys?

I'm not really that popular.

21.) What are you most afraid of?

I already said that I'm afraid of losing my family to the Yeerks and getting infested by them, I'm especially afraid of Visser Three.  I'm also afraid of morphing ants or any hive-minded species, and I've had a few interesting nightmares from some of my other morphs.  The Taxxons also scare me, but that's because I'm afraid that they'll eat me.  I'm also afraid of becoming a nothlit, like Tobias.

22.)*snicker* OK, OK. What colour is your hair?

I'm a redhead.

22.) Eyes?

My eyes are hazel.

23.) What do you usually wear?

I usually wear regular school clothes over my morphing outfit, which is a pink leotard.  We can only morph tight clothes, otherwise we risk being naked in public.

24.) OK. What's your religion?


My family's Catholic but I'm not really devoted to it.

25.) Do you wish this quiz is over?

This quiz doesn't really bother me, even if I can't answer all of your questions.

26.) Well, it's still not over.

All right.

27.) Anyway, where do you live?

I can't tell you that.

28.) What class are you?

My family's middle-class.

29.) How many friends do you have?


My friends are Jake, Rachel, Tobias, Cassie, Marco, Ax and Erik.  The first six are all Animorphs, like me!

30.) Wow. If you could change anything about you, what would you change?

The whole Yeerk invasion, or at least make it easier to be able to tell who's a controller and who's not.

31.) If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it? And I don't want no cheap answer, ya hear?


I'd buy weapons, jets, tanks, anything that can better help us defeat the Yeerks, especially oatmeal!

32.) What are your thoughts on pie?

I've baked it for Ax and he loves it!  He loves a ton of food, but pie is one of them!

33.) Alright. What's your favourite food?

I love cheeseburgers and chocolate!

34.) Favourite drink?

Nothing beats Cherry Soda!

35.) What is your favourite place?

Cassie's barn, where we can discuss how to deal with the Yeerks, and the ancient city of the Chee.  I also like hanging out at Ax's dome and watching TV.

36.) Least favourite?

The Yeerk Pool, but we have to go there.

37.) Do you still want the quiz to end?

It's all right, the quiz doesn't really bother me.

38.) Yeah. Well, it's over. D:

That's fine.

For those of you who read Mind Games, which is only one chapter so far, and read my to-do-list, which says that I'm still working on future chapters, You might be wondering why it's been so long since I've posted the second chapter.  Please know that, as I said earlier, I'm still working on future chapters.  It's just that my beta-reader, :iconallucia: is having health problems, so she can't look over my writing.  I wish her well and I hope she gets better.  I don't know if I can tell you more, because I'm not sure how comfortable she would be with that.  I felt that I should post this entry in case people think that I've given up on Mind Games.  It's my most important fanfic and I promised myself that, if I ever finish one of my fanfics, this will be the one.  It's because of :iconallucia: that I can do my absolute best on this Star Trek fanfic and I really do appreciate it.

In my last article, I talked about Mary Sue/Gary Stu and how to avoid him or her.  Now I'm going to talk about a similar subject, how to separate fantasy from reality.  This isn't just believing that your life is a reality show because you watched The Truman Show that one time.  Nor is this about people who think they're Vulcans because they saw one too many episodes of Star Trek.  This is about genuine everyday confusion that people live with every day.  It can be the inability to separate actors from their characters, or an average Joe believing that they have a chance with a movie star, the only subject I will avoid in this article.  It can even show up in your writing as Mary Sue or Gary Stu fantasies.

The first subject I mentioned, confusing characters and the actors that play them, is most common.  Be warned that much of this article contains spoilers so read at your own risk.  I'm sure we all love watching television and going to the movies but a truly good movie or television show can suck us right into their world.  When we watch Game of Thrones, we hate Joffrey for taking Ned Stark's life despite pleading guilty.  When we watch Old Yeller, we cry when Travis has to shoot his beloved, yet rabies-infected, dog.  When we watch Friends, we laugh when Joey explains to Rachel why he put The Shining in the freezer.  When we watch IT, we're terrified when Pennywise jumps out of the projector and, for a split second, we believe that he might actually come out of the movie screen.  To sum it up, our brains go through a suspension of disbelief in order to enjoy fictional worlds to their fullest. 

However, this can backfire on us when dealing with the actors.  Fans of the Walking Dead will remember Eugene and how he betrays Rick to Negan.  These same fans were so angry at Eugene, they sent Josh McDermitt (the actor who plays him) death threats over social media.  He had to close his social media account until people calmed down, full story can be seen here (www.konbini.com/us/entertainme…).  Remember how I mentioned Joffrey and how much we as viewers despise him?  Well, Jack Gleeson (Joffrey's actor) is another example how audience hatred can work against the actor.  A newscaster once speculated that Jack Gleeson gets yelled at on the streets for the things he does as Joffrey much like what happened to Tom Felton when he played Draco Malfoy.  It got to the point where, as my friend :iconjazzlednightmare16: once told me, Jack Gleeson made a video of himself hugging puppies to prove he wasn't evil.



This can also take a turn for the creepy.  Earlier, I talked about Pennywise and how, when he comes from the projector, we're scared that he'll pop out of the screen.  Well, for some people, this is a dream come true.  Not long ago, I looked at the TVtropes page for the newest IT movie and discovered that Pennywise, the monster clown who eats children, had fangirls.  See for yourself though, I have to warn you, content may both shock and disturb you in ways you could never imagine (pennywiseconfessions.tumblr.co…).  The actor himself, Bill Skarsgard, is actually quite handsome in real life.  So, when I showed this to my mom, :icononlyindreams145:, :iconjazzlednightmare16: and :iconhashakgig1106:, the first three finding it disturbing and the last one finding it hilarious, as I did.  When talking to them about it, I reasoned that some of these people might be attracted to Bill Skarsgard and they failed to separate the actor from the character.  Bill Skarsgard is a handsome and charming man who took his time to comfort the child actors he scared during filming.



Pennywise is a demonic creature with pedophiliac vibes who eats the children of Derry.



I'll admit, I do have a bit of a crush on Bill Skarsgard, but Pennywise still has me so scared to the point where I'm still sleeping with my lamp on.  Go ahead and laugh all you want.  While I'll admit that some of these people might be trolling, but there is a possibility that some of these people might be genuinely attracted to Pennywise.  In fact, whether the blog I linked to is actually for trolls is in the Q&A section.  He or she claimed that both Teratophilia (en.wiktionary.org/wiki/teratop…) and coulrophilia (www.urbandictionary.com/define…) are quite common and existed before IT (2017).  Though the writer forgot to mention hybristophilia (www.urbandictionary.com/define…) and voraphilia (www.urbandictionary.com/define…), which could also apply to Pennywise.  This will be discussed further in part two when I talk about how fantasies can influence our writing.  The point I'm trying to make here is that the Pennywise in the movie is not Bill Skarsgard wearing clown makeup, IT's a demonic being that only has one thing on IT's mind and that thing is eating children.  I remember an interview I once watched with the gorgeous Iwan Rheon where an interviewer asked him how he feels when people say they like his character, Ramsay Snow.



I imagine that's how Bill Skarsgard would feel if someone ever told him about that blog.  Speaking of Ramsay Snow, when he was first introduced in Game of Thrones, I felt conflicted because he was pure evil and yet I found him attractive.  My mom told me that it's not the character I'm attracted to but the actor and I had nothing to feel guilty about.  It's the same with what I said previously about my crush on Bill Skarsgard and my fear of Pennywise.

While it's fun to get yourself so into a fantasy world that it becomes real to you, there is a point where you can take it too far.  Whether it's hating a character so much you send the actor death threats, or loving the actor of a psychotic character to the point where you fall for the character.  At the end of the day, actors are just people doing their jobs and aren't at fault for anything done by their characters on TV or in movies.  You need to learn where fantasy ends and reality begins.  As I said earlier, in the next part, I will talk about how to separate reality from fantasy in your writing.

1.Pick one of your FCs/OCs.
2.Fill in the questions/statements as if you were your FC/OC.
3.Tag 3 people at the end of the quiz


1.) What's your name?

Terma Lara

2.) Do you know why you were named that?

My parents died before they could tell me, but Terma is my married family name.

3.) Are you single or taken?


I'm married to Inarn. 

4.) Have any abilities or powers?

I'm no stranger to farm work, I have good survival skills, I can be seductive when I want to be and I'm not a bad cook either.

5.) Stop being a Mary Sue.

I don't know what you mean.

6.) If you were to get in a fight with a strong wrestler, do you think you'd win?

I'm not much of a fighter, though farm work does make me rather strong.

7.) Have any family members?

My parents died before I could remember him so, for a long time, it was just me and my brother.  He got arrested when I was fourteen.  Now I'm married with two children of my own, my biological child Fiora and my adopted child Rose.  I consider Nexida a member of the family, even if Inarn refuses to adopt her, and Candy is Rose's biological mother so that makes her family.  Chris is very much like Candy's brother so, in a unofficial way, he's also a part of the family.

8.) How about pets?

I don't have any pets, but Inarn and I are considering raising livestock as soon as we can grow better crops.  Rose also wants a Verdanon.

9.) Tell me something that you don't like?

I don't like Inarn's bigotry towards Nexida.  She's only a child and shouldn't be held responsible for what her people have done.  Nexida's also a good friend to Rose, and it's very hard for Rose to make friends.  I also don't like when he loses his temper, even when he does it for good reason.  The man can be a real hothead, but I still love him.  I also don't like when people treat Rose as being slow.  Yes, she was rather slow with talking and proper social skills, but she learned to read when she was four and that little girl has an imagination I've never seen.  I also hate seeing Fiora so overworked from all of her clubs and her studying.  I've always felt that Fiora needed to drop a few things but she won't listen to me.

10.) Something that you do like?


I love to cook, read, listen to music, spend time with my family, I do enjoy farming and a little time in the holosuite never hurts.

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


Again, I do like reading and cooking when I can get some free time to myself.  I also do some of my own farming in my free time.

12.) Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before?

I used to spy as a comfort woman for my resistance cell during the Occupation and I'm sure Inarn was hurt that I had to be unfaithful, but I did it for us, Fiora, Rose and Bajor.  There was this other time I grabbed a Cardassian's arm because I didn't agree with her therapy methods.

13.) Ever... killed anyone before?


No, never.

14.) What kind of animal are you?

I suppose Bajorans are a certain type of animal.

15.) Name your worst habits.

I tend to worry too much, I keep secrets from the people I love and I sometimes make bad decisions in order to protect my family.

16.) Do you look up to anyone at all?

I admire my brother for keeping us both alive during the Occupation and Inarn for his strength during the Occupation and raising Fiora while I was gone.  He's also a good man for agreeing to take in Rose and not blaming her for the complications that came with her adoption.  Also Candy for helping my family deal with said complications, for being there for Rose and for taking Nexida under her wing.  Like many Bajorans, I look up to our Emissary, Captain Sisko, for helping my people get through the Occupation.

17.) Gay, straight, or bi?

I'm straight.

18.) Do you go to school?

Growing up, school was a luxury I couldn't have. 

19.) Ever want to marry and have kids one day?

I'm already married with two beautiful children.

20.) Do you have any fan girls/fan boys?

Well, I did have a few Cardassians show interest in me during my time as a comfort woman, two of them being Barkan Lokar and Skrain Dukat.  I was a comfort woman to the former and the latter not so subtly hinted that he intended to take me after Lokar was done with me.  While the Occupation ended before Dukat could claim me, he still insists on trying to seduce me and uses his help with adopting Rose as a reason, to Inarn's chagrin.

21.) What are you most afraid of?

As I said, Rose's adoption came with complications that I'd rather she never found out about and her biological father coming to claim her.  I'm also afraid that Fiora's harming herself and is cracking under the pressure of her desire to be perfect.  Not to mention Nexida getting lynch for being unfortunate enough to get stuck on Bajor. I also have another secret that I have told no one, not even Inarn and I will take it to my grave that I'm afraid people will find out about it.  Though I'd have to say that my greatest fear is losing my children and worrying about who will take care of them when Inarn and I are gone.

22.)*snicker* OK, OK. What colour is your hair?

Platinum Blonde

22.) Eyes?

Hazel

23.) What do you usually wear?

Casual farming clothes though I wear dresses for special occasions. 

24.) OK. What's your religion?


Like many Bajorans, I worship the Prophets.

25.) Do you wish this quiz is over?

It doesn't really bother me.

26.) Well, it's still not over.

Again, that's all right with me.

27.) Anyway, where do you live?

I live on a farm in Bajor with my family.

28.) What class are you?

My family would be considered working class.

29.) How many friends do you have?

Candy's been very protective of my family and she's very good with Rose, even if she claims the only reason she's involved with my family is because of Rose.  Though I feel guilty about dragging her into my business with Dukat.  Chris has also been very nice to us and I do appreciate him helping with the chores whenever he visits.  Garak's been good to Rose and Nexida, even though Candy and Inarn don't trust him.  Inarn doesn't trust Garak because he's Cardassian, but I sense that Candy has a bit of an attraction to Garak, which might be why she can be a bit hostile towards him.  I get along with most of the crew on Deep Space Nine, though I've had some conflicts with Kira about Candy and Aura about Ken.

30.) Wow. If you could change anything about you, what would you change?

Well, I wouldn't have missed years of Fiora's life, been unfaithful in the name of saving the Bajorans from the Occupation, kept a closer eye on Dukat around Rose, not send Rose to that awful therapist and I would have never committed such a vile sin against the Prophets, which is still the very secret I will take to my grave.

31.) If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it? And I don't want no cheap answer, ya hear?


I don't know what the dollar is.

32.) What are your thoughts on pie?

Everyone loves my Tuwaly Pie.

33.) Alright. What's your favourite food?

I love Jumja fruit!

34.) Favourite drink?

Spring Wine.

35.) What is your favourite place?

Nothing makes me happier than being outside at home surrounded by nature and my family.

36.) Least favourite?

I don't care for visiting Deep Space Nine.  There's just too many bad memories.

37.) Do you still want the quiz to end?

It doesn't really bother me, though some of these questions bring back bad memories.

38.) Yeah. Well, it's over. D:

All right.

I know I didn't post reviews on my wordpress blog the last two weeks and there's a reason.  Last week, my mom had to make two appointments at the vet for two different cats, so she couldn't get around to reading my reviews.  This week is a little more complicated.  My mom is a Pharmacist and the store she works at is closing down.  So, there's a chance that she could lose her job.  She doesn't know yet if she's being assigned to work somewhere else, offered a floaters position, or lose her job entirely.  The thing is, she's the breadwinner in my family and we have three dogs and three cats.  So, we really can't afford her to be jobless right now.  Truth is, I'm scared and it's left me unable to concentrate on anything.  I had a review ready and I'm supposed to write a review for the first episode of Life is Strange, but I just don't feel up to it right now.  My mom's applying for jobs tomorrow and she's still waiting to here from her District Manager, so we're hoping everything is going to be okay.

Candy named me after the fairy tale princess, Briar Rose.

6.) If you were to get in a fight with a strong wrestler, do you think you'd win?

No, I'm not much of a fighter.

7.) Have any family members?

Lara and Inarn are my adopted parents.  They took me in after my Federation parents died on Terok Nor, which is a long story.  I was two, so I don't really remember them.  Fiora's my sister and believe me when I say that we couldn't be more different.  Candy is my bio-mom and I don't know who my bio dad is.  Tanya and Ken are my aunt and uncle through Candy.

8.) How about pets?

There's Shere Khan, but he's Candy's cat.  I also have a Verdanon on Bajor.

9.) Tell me something that you don't like?

I really hate that the sight of blood and needles make me faint.  It's so embarrassing.  I also hate that I'm not on the same wave length as other kids my age thanks to my disability.

10.) Something that you do like?


Princesses, even though my sister says that I'm too old for them.  I also love Superman!

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


I like to sing, dance, cook, play make believe on the holosuite and I used to play with dolls and action figures until Fiora told me I was too old for them.

12.) Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before?

Some Bajorans I haven't met say that I hurt them a long time ago, but my parents or Nexida always shoo them away before they can say what I did.

13.) Ever... killed anyone before?


No, never!

14.) What kind of animal are you?

Human, what else would I be?

15.) Name your worst habits.

I say things that come off as insensitive, I get lost in my own little world, I can be oblivious, I don't act my age and I can sometimes get stuck on one subject.

16.) Do you look up to anyone at all?

Both of my moms, Candy and Lara!  They're both awesome!  As I said earlier, I love Superman!

17.) Gay, straight, or bi?

I think I'm straight.  All my romantic fantasies have been about guys and Dr. Bashir is so handsome!

18.) Do you go to school?

Yeah, but I don't really fit in.  Everyone thought I was too strange.  Nexida's the first friend I've ever made and she's very protective of me.

19.) Ever want to marry and have kids one day?

I've fantasized about that many times.

20.) Do you have any fan girls/fan boys?

No, people find me too strange.

22.)*snicker* OK, OK. What colour is your hair?

Chocolate Brown.

22.) Eyes?

Emerald Green

23.) What do you usually wear?

Tradition farm girl clothes.  I used to have a few princess dresses I liked to try on in private, but I got rid of those.

24.) OK. What's your religion?


I pray to The Prophets.  I may be biologically human but, culturally, I'm Bajoran.  Like how Superman is biologically Kryptonian but is culturally human.

25.) Do you wish this quiz is over?

Some of these questions hit a little too close to home.

26.) Well, it's still not over.

Oh, as long as the questions stop getting personal.

27.) Anyway, where do you live?

I live in a farm on Bajor.  My parents moved there after the Cardassians left.

28.) What class are you?

You mean like in that holosuite program Titanic?  I guess I'm somewhere between Jack and Rose, though I might lean a little closer to Jack.

29.) How many friends do you have?


Nexida's my only friend.  We were both lonely and I guess we found each other.

30.) Wow. If you could change anything about you, what would you change?

The fainting thing would be good and, ever since I found out about my Aspergers, I'd give anything to get rid of that and just be normal.

31.) If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it? And I don't want no cheap answer, ya hear?


We don't really have dollars.  Do you mean latinum?

Stolen from :iconxeme-sweetiex:
My main character from Mind Games, a fanfic that I will still write with the help of my beta-reader, :iconallucia:.  I've also been role-playing with :iconhashakgig1106: and I hope she doesn't mind me making a slight reference to it.

1. What is your real name and nickname?
My real name's Candice Marino, but I go by Candy.  People have called me the Galaxy's greatest detective, DS9's diva and the bitch of the station.

2. What's your current age?
29.

3. What's your favorite food?
Fettucine alfredo is the absolute best!

4. Favourite drink? 
Anything with booze has got my vote.

5. Who's your love? (if you have one)
Solving cases.  Nothing gets me high like being able to use my brain to solve amazing mysteries!  Though I guess you meant person.  This chick flies solo!  All right, there are some people who know me think it's Garak, but he's nothing more than a complex mystery for me to solve.  Others think that there's something going on between me and Tike, but that's just another enigma wrapped up in a humanoid body, most of the time.  Though, let me tell you, I'd love to hit that.  There's one other, but...  No, that could never happen.  Look, I've done the love thing once and it blew up in my face.

6. Have you kissed anyone yet?
I've done far more than kiss.

7. What about your childhood?
I grew up in a fairly standard Italian family, a dad who couldn't care less about me, a mom who cared too much, a half-sister who made my life miserable, a half-brother who treated me like a walking replicator and, every Sunday, I'd have dinner with aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins who I never really talked to outside of Sunday dinner.  Come to think of it, I didn't talk to them that much during Sunday dinner.

8. Who're your favorite authors?
George R.R. Martin for writing the Song of Ice and Fire known as my favorite holosuite program, Game of Thrones!  Tamora Pierce was a huge part of my childhood.  Also, Stan Lee and Joss Whedon.  What, movie and comic book writers don't count?

9. Now, what's your biggest fear?
There's something I'm keeping from my daughter, Rose, and if she finds out...  Well, let me tell you, it won't go down well.  I also have a dreadful fear of bugs, but don't go spreading that around.  Chris also thinks I sleep around because I'm afraid of commitment.  What does he know?  I'm also afraid of Daphne but, if you met her, you'd see why.

10. Any siblings?
Just Tanya and Ken, the half-siblings from my dad's side of the family that I already went into earlier.  Thankfully, I'm my mom's one and only.  Yeah, my parents are divorced but my dad had a vasectomy shortly after I was born, so I don't have to worry about anymore siblings on his side and my mom doesn't want to get married again.

11. OK, who's your worst enemy?
Definitely Daphne.  That woman is sadistic on Ramsay Snow levels, except smarter and she's a changeling.  Let me put it this way.  Do you know how Dukat, the female founder, Enabran Tain, Garak and my ex-boyfriend scare each other?  Every week, they gather around a campfire and tell Daphne stories.  Okay, that's what DC villains said about The Joker, but it fits Daphne too.

12. Huh, alright. Now, who's your best friend?
Chris, my only friend.

13. What would you do if you met your creator?
If we're getting religious, let me tell you, I don't do that bullshit.  Unless you count my love of superheroes, but they sure as hell didn't create me.

14. What's your worst nightmare?
I already gave you some details about Rose earlier and I'm not going into that again.

15. What's your lifelong dream?
Truth be told, I'm thinking about dropping out of Starfleet and doing the detective gig full time.  Only problem is that certain circumstances prevent that from happening.  I'm telling you, everytime I think I'm out, he pulls me back in.

16. What would you do if your lifelong dream came true?
Celebrate the freedom that I'll most likely never get.  Thanks for reminding me.

17. OK, where's your favorite place to relax?
The holosuites.  I can be anywhere I want to be from Smallville, Sunnydale, riding in the Impala with Sam and Dean off to fight the next monster, Mayberry, wherever I want to be!  Let me tell you, the holosuite's much better than real life!

18. Last question! What do you do most of the time?
When I'm not solving cases, drinking, fucking, making life on the station hell, I'm making playlists and jamming to them!  Right now, I'm listening to my Starlord playlist and jamming to Come and Get Your Love!  Sometimes I wonder if it's Starlord or Dean Winchester who has the better taste in music.  Oh, who am I kidding?  They're both awesome!

After seeing :iconmiss-gravillian1992: :iconanimecolourful: and :iconmissabigailwyatt: doing one of these, I thought that I'd open one myself. Ask any one of my characters whatever you want and they'll answer!

:bulletwhite: Faith Summers/Snow White
:iconanimecolourful: asks
What are some of your favorite series's etc. If you had to choose what would be your favorite?
It's hard to say, I have a ton of favorite series like Sword Art Online, Madoka Magica, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Harry Potter, The School For Good and Evil and Glitter Force is becoming a guilty pleasure of mine.  This might be cheating, but I also love reading Dripping Mascara on Episode!  The writer plans on turning it into a book series.

What are your favorite genres to write about?
Definitely fantasy!  It helps that I've been recording my dreams about Snow White in my notepad.  I'm hoping to publish it one day!

:iconanimecolourful: asks
What is your favorite theatre performance/ play?
I do love Shakespeare, particularly Merchant of Venice.  I also love the works of Tenessee Williams, such as A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.  One of my favorites is Sugawara Denju Tenarai Kagami, a tragic story about a man destroyed over a crime he didn't commit.  It's times like these I feel sad that women are not allowed to act in the theater.

My Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fanfic, Mind Games, needs a beta-reader.  I keep stressing myself out over whether I'm true to the science, characters and even if I'm getting the time of the episodes right.  So, I need someone who's familiar with the show and characters of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, the science of Star Trek and all around familiar with everything regarding Star Trek to help me beta-read.  A knowledge of grammar, characterization, plot structure, romantic chemistry and story flow would also be helpful.  You also need to be able to handle adult content because I'm considering putting it in my story.  The link is here.

1. Pick one of your oc

2. Fill in the questions/statements as if you were your OC.

3. Tag others!

1. What is your name?
My name's Alicia Williams.


2. Do you know why you were named that?
My parents like that name?  No idea.


3. Single or taken?
Technically, I'm taken by Defoli Nurmeen but I've had my eye on Jack.


4. Have any abilities or powers?
I'm a good liar, I'm not a bad thief and I know how to get a good deal on items.  I also have a good memory.


5. Stop being a Mary Sue!
Yeah, I don't know that term.


6. What's your eye color?
Hazel


7. How about hair color?
Bright red


8. Have you any family members?
My parents died because of the Legans, but I was too young to remember.  So I was raised by foster parents who didn't give a shit about me and just collected the monthly check.


9. Oh? How about pets?
I don't have any pets, but I want one.


10. That's cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don't like.
My foster parents, my former job, sometimes I hate my current job as Defoli's girlfriend and other times I hate having to sneak around for Jack.  I also hate how conflicted I am about whether or not I should hate the Legans.  It was because of their arrival and takeover of Earth that I got stuck with my asshole foster parents and had to live in a shitty apartment with my only hope being a Legan officer who tells me that I can be a servant for a better home and better pay.  What the fuck did I believe him for?  Then again, Defoli's actually nice to me and I think I'm falling in love with him.  Besides, the human race hasn't done shit for me.  Though, as Jack points out, all Defoli sees is a glorified whore and he'll toss me back on the street as soon as he's done with me, so I might as well use that time to help the rebels.  I do know that I hate Defoli's first officer, Janxon Aratobaar, for being a psychotic dick.  He tortures humans for fun, he regularly rapes Lia and he wants to overthrow Defoli.  You'd think this would make me hate Defoli, but he despises the guy as much as I do.  Defoli's keeping the guy on a leash and, if Defoli dies, Janxon's in charge.  So, whether I'm a rebel or a collaborator, I can't let that happen.

11. What are your hobbies?
I like smoking, watching TV, listening to music, reading, talking, drinking and fucking.

12. Have you ever hurt anyone in any way?
It's looking like I might have to.


13. Ever… killed anyone before?
I've seen dead bodies, but I've never killed anyone myself.  Though, now that I'm involved in this human Legan war, it's looking like I might have to.


14. What kind of animal are you?
Just a regular human.


15. Name your worst habits?
I smoke and I swear like a truck driver.


16. Do you look up to anyone at all?
I've never had a single fucking role-model growing up.


17.  Gay, straight or bisexual
Straight.

18. Do you go to school?
I did, and it was a fucking hellhole.  I dropped out as soon as I got myself legally emancipated.


19. Ever want to marry and have kids one day?
I'm just trying to survive a shitty situation.  I don't got time to add a husband and kids to the deal.


20. Do you have fangirls/fanboys?
I'm not that well known.


21. What are you most afraid of?
Janxon, really don't want to be stuck with him for company.  He even murders collaborators.


22. What do you usually wear?
I used to dress functional but, ever since meeting Defoli, I've been dressing more formal.


23. What's one food that tempts you?
Steak, I'm from Texas, I practically live off of red meat, even if it's impossible to get any but Defoli changed that.


24. Am I annoying you?
Well, it sucks that I've got to talk about my shitty childhood.


25. Well, it's still not over?
Great.

26. What class are you (low class, middle class, high class)
I'm as low as they come.


27. How many friends do you have?
Just Lia, Janxon's girlfriend.  Without her brother around, I'm the only source of comfort she knows.  Jack's been a huge help, even if he keeps trying to get me to join his cell.  Defoli's nice to me, though that doesn't come with a price.  Though, I have to admit, he's good in bed.


28. What are your thoughts on pie?
It sucks.


29. Favorite drink?
Whiskey, smooth.


30. What's your favorite place?
Anywhere I can smoke without being harassed.  I'm trying to quit but it's never a good time.


31. Are you interested in anyone~?
I'm Defoli's paid for girlfriend, but he's actually starting to grow on me.  I've been having secret meetings with Jack and I think I'm falling for him too.

32. Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean?
Yeah, I can't swim.


33. What's your type?
Honestly, I never gave it that much thought.  Before meeting Defoli, I just fucked good-looking men to forget my problems.  At one point, I thought that I'd fall in love but I gave that up after too many assholes broke my heart.


34. Any fetishes?
I'm keeping that private.


35. Camping or indoors?
Indoors, with modern day plumbing, air conditioning, food and all those other comforts.


36. Tag!

Taken from :iconfataltobelucky13:

Yes, I crossed over Deep Space Nine with Smallville, my current obsessions.  I'm writing a Deep Space Nine fanfic and re-watching Smallville on Hulu with my mom.  Plus, I always thought those two fandoms might be good together.

The Rules

1. Go to this www.random.org/lists/
2. Pick 15 characters from any Fandom or whatever you're into
3. Tag five or more people ((not tagging))
4. Have fun


1. Mom/Dad: Elim Garak
Okay, considering I'm writing a fanfic that pairs him up with an OC, that's more than a little disturbing.  Maybe he's the step-dad I'm having an affair with?

2. Your sibling: Jadzia Dax
Ooh, that would be fun!

3. Your Grandma/Grandpa:
 Kira Nerys
Are you serious?  Again, it must be step.

4. Haunts you: Lex Luthor
Please tell me he's stalking me.  I'd give anything to be stalked by this sexy bald billionaire, the Smallville version of course who was my second imaginary boyfriend.  We had a one-night stand and he can't get me off of his mind!

5. Your boyfriend/girlfriend: Oliver Queen
Woo-hoo, another sexy billionaire!  Maybe Lex can't stand me being with him.  That's why he's stalking me!

6. Your ex: Pete Ross
Considering his lack of character, I probably got bored, or I dated him to get to Clark.

7. Your best friend: Lana Lang
Please tell me I only pretended to be friends with her so I can push her off a cliff.

8. Proposed to you: Quark
But I turned him down.  Not my type and I really don't want to sign a Ferengi marriage contract.  Plus, if he thinks he can compete with Oliver, he's dreaming.

9. Your boss: Gul Dukat
He's sexually harassing me like he did to Kira, not that I mind.  Dukat's nowhere near Clark's level in looks, but his charm makes up for it.

10. The random person you met at the bar: Odo
He had me arrested for getting drunk and disturbing the peace.

11. Your Rival: Benjamin Sisko
What the hell would we be competing over?

12. Gave you your first kiss: Lois Lane
Not really into women, but it could be worst.

13. Drunk and singing karaoke with: Chloe Sullivan
And boy did we have a blast!  Needed a break after we tracked down the Meteor Freak of the Week, so we got drunk and sang Somebody Save Me!

14. Played 7 minutes in heaven with: Clark Kent
Yay!  My very first imaginary boyfriend!  Was he in love with me all along, or was he infected with Red Kryptonite?  Maybe it's both!

15. Gave you your favorite dessert: Julian Bashir
So, I shared a dessert with the most gorgeous guy on Deep Space Nine, not bad.  Though he's average looking compared to the cast of Smallville, let me tell you.

I'm sure that some of you are already aware that Belle, my 9 year old German Shepherd, was sick.  She wasn't eating, she was barely moving, she threw up everything we tried to feed her and, today, she was even throwing up water.  My mom recently took her to the vet and they had to put her to sleep, but she paid to have Belle cremated and we'll eventually be receiving her ashes.  She was the first dog my mom and I got after my dad left and we loved her will all of our hearts.  She kept us happy and safe.  Even my other animals, two dogs and three cats, can feel her absence due to how silent they are around the house.  As sad as it is for Belle to die, she would have eventually starved to death and the vet made sure to put her to sleep calmly and peacefully.  So I rest assured that she didn't suffer, though I will still mourn her death.

That fanfic is Mind Games.  The reason is because that fanfic is closest to my heart and is the main inspiration for Candice and Return of the Greek Gods.  It's the one most heavily on my mind and there are plot points and I'd really like other people to see.  Plus, no bad memories associated with it.  However, original fiction will still be my top priority.  So, when I have my original fiction mapped out better, that's when I'll start working on Mind Games again.  I'm sorry if this isn't the fanfic you want me to finish, but this is the way it has to be.
