Yes, another meme! Mainly to make :iconddraigtanto: do it, but still!

1. ONE OF YOUR SCARS, HOW DID YOU GET IT?
There's a nasty one on my left index finger that I got when I was...nine? I was trying to open a glue gun with a stanley knife, and my finger slipped...didn't stop bleeding for half an hour!

A White Star Line promotional image, and three landscape paintings. Oh, and my Graduation Certificate from Athena Montessori College, a painting of my first dog, and a cross-stitch from my Nana.

3. DO YOU SNORE, GRIND YOUR TEETH, OR TALK IN YOUR SLEEP?
Hmm...I think I sometimes talk in my sleep, but for the most part I'm quite peaceful. I sleep like a rock.

4. WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO?
Very little of today's music; mainly random classic hits from the last century, soundtracks and musicals.

8. WHAT IS YOUR MOST PRIZED POSSESSION(S)?
MY BOOKS. sta.sh/01bv5spuj7cg
And that's only a small fraction of the full collection...which includes FOUR bookshelves like the ones on my right (one of which has another two on top), the two shelves behind me, and an old computer table that's been repurposed to serve as a bookshelf. And those are just MY books...

Very. Um...something like 6.5ft? Can't recall.

Sometimes.

11. DO YOU GET SCARED IN THE DARK?

12. THE LAST PERSON TO MAKE YOU CRY?
Hmm...does a loved one dying count? Lee, then (de facto Nana)...

No idea. Lavender smells nice, though.

Hmm...you know, I have no idea! I've had so many amazing gifts that I can't really keep track of them all!

22. DO YOU LIKE ANYBODY?
I like plenty of people. Your point?

23. ARE YOU DOUBLE JOINTED?
Nope.

Yes.

27. WHAT KIND IS IT?
Dog!

28. WOULD YOU FALL IN LOVE KNOWING THAT THE PERSON IS LEAVING?

Attempting to answer questions like this.

36. MET ANYONE FAMOUS?
I know a lot of people through other people...for instance, my Godbrother was Jack Black's body double in King Kong! And my Mum's starred in Outrageous Fortune...as a lesbian biker chick, but still!

37. FIRST JOB?
Volunteer person at the Te Omanga Hospice Shop in Petone.

38. EVER DONE A PRANK CALL?
Don't think so, but I did use to listen to some guys at my old school making prank calls...one guy had a phone that had been messed with so it couldn't be traced, so he and his friends used to make insane joke calls!

Browsing Wikipedia.

41. HAVE YOU EVER HAD SURGERY?
Yes, to fix a hernia.

45. HOW MANY KIDS DO YOU WANT?
At least one boy and one girl.

46. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?

53 WHAT CD ARE YOU MOST EMBARRASSED TO HAVE ON YOUR SHELF?
Probably one of the junior albums I bought when

54. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Yeah! And that'd be awesome, since I'd be able to double my efficiency and work on projects that I normally give up on because it's too much effort to do alone. Would probably fight with myself over the computer, though.

56. DO LOOKS MATTER?
Nah.

57. HOW DO YOU RELEASE ANGER?
Bitching and ranting, most of the time.

58. WHERE IS YOUR SECOND HOME?
My aunt's house in Petone, which is the closest thing to a family home (my grandmother lived there, and secretly set up a trust so that her husband couldn't sell it when she died...which he tried to do not long after she did).

Oh god, no idea. Um...I'm going to say Frank Sinatra, just cause Blue Moon's stuck in my head.

Friends. No contest.

Planet Spice or Satay Village...technically, they do Fast Food as well! I think...

90. YOU LIKE SUSHI?
Bleargh, no. Not a seafood person.

91. LAST THING YOU WATCHED?

Christmas?

93. PLAY ANY MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS?
Once studied the violin and piano, but I never got far.

And that's that! Oh, and I don't plan to upload any pictures of the recent party...don't think anybody took any, and I ended up getting a few joke presents, so probably for the best that that didn't get committed to film...

Who am I? I'm a random person who likes solving problems that pop up in various book/film/tv/game/etc series that I pay attention to. Hence, a lot of my work revolves around creating essays, maps, informative pictures, and the odd fan-fic to test out a scenario. I also like designing things, so there's the odd concept there too!

I'm only too happy to help out with things wherever I can...need a quick historical map drawn or want help coming up with a story concept? Send me a message and I'll see what I can do.

Should reply in next days at your messaged, but wrote here briefly to say i've found this: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragonch…;
Did you know this series? it seems to have dragon protagonists: it's three book.
Then there are three books, but not about dragons, yet set in the same world

Ah, that series! I own it, but I haven't gotten around to reading it properly just yet...started a while back and got a bit lost in the opening story (there was a LOT going on and the story seemed a bit disjointed), and then forgot to resume reading. But I have the first three books (most of my dragon books are on the black shelves behind me in this picture; sta.sh/01bv5spuj7cg ...Wings of Fire is on the top left, Temeraire the top right, then Age of Fire below Wings of Fire...hmm, wait, actually, the Dragoncharm series is on another shelf!) so I'll read through it at some point.

Although I did skip to a scene at one point which I thought was rather cool and touching...reminds me, I was going to talk about that with :iconddraigtanto:; I thought there was potentially a scene idea in there.

Uh... from your words it appears you've not been positively impressed by this series...

Oh, I haven't properly read them just yet, it's just when I last started I wasn't grabbed by the story and so only read two chapters or so...that may very well change once I read them properly!

Wow! Hmm...don't know if I ever figured out what her eye colour should be. Perhaps blue? She was wearing that in the original pixel image...

Hmm...could I see a version of this image on a black background, just to compare? I imagine white is the better choice so that you can actually see the shading, but I'm curious...oh, and when it's done, can you flip the picture? Marcus' scar should be on his right side...

Ah, whoops, just thought of something that we should have fixed sooner...Marcus' left wing is all yellow, yet the right wing has black membranes! Ah well; it still looks epic!
