Oh, okay, I give in. I'm a sheep. Or a Mareep, as the case may be. Baaaaaaaaaaa.

I think they're awfully cute. <3 Care to give them copious amounts of huggings? :D

Because all I'm doing is compiling data right now, a meme! With Kali!

1.) Do you like this character?

OF COURSE! <3 Kali's my newest character, but that doesn't stop her from being endearing in her own special way.

2.) What name(s) do you call this character?

Mostly I just call her Kali, because it's easiest. Her full name is Kalyani Abjahasta, a.k.a. Byakko Seishi Subaru. She screws with time. <3

3.) What image / color do you associate with character?

It's PAINFULLY cliche, but white, being a seishi of Byakko and all. Red pops into my mind some too, mostly because of her reddish hair. Images include pretty sari dresses, and lots and lots of mechanical gears.

4.) What would this character rescue if their house were burning down?

Boy, hm. Well, ONCE her family was safely out, Kali would want to save her poetry. She would vehemently deny that it's anything but technical schematics, but that poetry's her heart and soul on paper in the end. She'd just rather not have you seeing it, even if she did just risk her life to save them.

5.) What blood type do you think this character is?

Hmm, probably type A, considering her tendency to be enthusiastic about her work and sometimes a little, um *too* enthusiastic.

6.) From all of the titles that feature this character, what other character do you think makes a good pairing with this character?

Boy, UM. I would have to say Agni. They bounce off each other really nicely, I think. Agni gets all excited over the fact that Kali makes her own tea and she goes 'GOD what is with you.' At the same time I think Agni will endear himself to Kali. He's not like the other Spoiled Rich Boys and has a brain in his head, even if she still occasionally wants to smack him upside it. XD

7.) What would you want to say to this character?

Don't be AFRAID to be girly. If any of the other mechanics give you issues, you can totally deck them one.

8.) What do you want to do with this character?

HAIR BRAIDING PARTY. <3 Although seriously, I'm just really looking forward to seeing her interact more with her fellow Byakko seishi. Right now she's the only girl on the Byakko seishi team, and she's the most outwardly manly, which I find hilarious. I really want to see how she works with them in a team setting, and how they bounce off each other.

9.) Please choose five friends with your choice of character.

I think a couple of these people have been tagged already for other characters, so don't feel pressured to do them. I'm just curious. <3

I think this particular meme has done the circuit once already, so I tag...whoever hasn't done it, I guess. ^_^;;

1) Number of books I own: Um. Um um um. A lot. Enough that my bookcase is overflowing, there are books in the attic, and there are books barracading my bed and underneath the bed. I think I have quite a few.
2) Last book bought: Mmmm...the GRE workbook I'm working out of right now. ^_^;; In terms of literary books though, Wicked.
3) Last book read: "The Seventh Gate", which is the last book in the Death's Gate Cycle.
4) Five books I read a lot of that mean a lot to me, no particular order:

Watership Down: Oh man. My favoritest book evar. I read it for Battle of the Books when I was in the seventh grade, and initially, I couldn't figure out what the heck was going on. Rabbits? Talking? Bwuh? But as I kept reading, I got more and more attached to it, until by the end I was enamored with it. My first copy of the book was so well loved that pages were falling out of it. Which is why I was glad when Eien-chan bought me a nice hardback version for my birthday. <3

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: It's just a fun read, even if it is 'technically' a kid's book. I've found I like reading it when I'm not feeling well, because it's fun and imaginative and cheers me up.

A Dab of Dickens and a Touch of Twain: An awesome book. I don't know how many of you have heard of Elliot Engel, but he is a former English professor-turned-traveling lecturer. If you ever get the opportunity to see him speak, I highly recommend it. He lectures on the life and times of several great literary figures, uaually adding in little-known facts, and makes it absolutely frickin' hilarious. His lectures have been available on tape, but a couple years ago he took his lectures and put them into essay form, and published them in this book. And having heard several of his lectures, I had to have it. It's fun and funny, and you learn all sorts of neat things about the authors that you never learned about in high school English class.

The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Mythology: I picked it up at the used book store for $6, and damn was it worth it. It's a humongous book, and it's chock full of things on basically all the major world mythologies, from Babylon to Greek to Egyptian to Norse. It's even got some things on Eastern religions, like major figures in the Tao and Buddhist religions. It's an awesome reference, and I love thumbing through it and seeing what I can see.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: A book near and dear to my heart. I've read it several times, and it always makes me giggle. It was also the subject for two of my papers for style class. The first paper made me determined to do better in the class. The second got me the A- for my final grade, and I was real proud of that paper in the end.

Post these instructions, the artists, and the five songs in your blog. Then tag five other people to see what they're listening to.


1.) "A Smaller God" - Darling Violetta
2.) "Crop Circles" - Cory Sipper
3.) "Clocks" - Coldplay
4.) "Enter Serenia" - Jack Wall(yes, I'm a dork, I love quasi-obscure game music. XD)
5.) "You Learn" - Alanis Morrisette

Last one! <3

And I'm hoping I characterized Domni right. Hopefully this'll work out okay.

For the stupendous [ profile] shortcakegreen!

They could start an organization: The Hawk Sisters )

I'm guessing this is a longer-than-usual ficlet length. Apparently brevity isn't my strong point...>_> Oh well.

For the splendid [ profile] sinnocenti!

Spies like us )

For the nice n' nifty [ profile] neherenia!

That devil's a little bit bigger now. And he's buying. )

I think I got a little silly with the Larry Miller jokes toward the end. But hey, it was fun. ^^;

I'm kinda going a little out of order, which I hope won't be too bad. We'll see. <3 Writing it, I thought maybe that it would be too long to qualify as 'ficlet', but looking at it posted, it doesn't look as long as I thought. ^_^;

For the delightful [ profile] demonlet!

Bonding is a wonderful thing. So are mussels. )
