Name/Nickname: Emily; Shadowix/Shaddi; The Private Manga Library of Lynchburg, Virginia
Gender: female. Srsly, find me a guy named Emily.
Likes: anime/manga, oddball fictional characters, video games (mostly Okage, Psychonauts, and the Monkey Island series), Barenaked Ladies and other really random Canadian music, the color orange, cosplay and conventions, voice actors, Indian food, the dark chocolate covered dried strawberries I bought at Target that I have been eating for a while now
Dislikes: people with any sort of negative pointless prejudice (racism, sexism, homophobia, whatever), people who talk in netspeak on the internet, people who CAN'T FUNCTION without a boyfriend or girlfriend, people who senselessly bash anyone (including fictional characters: bash only with logic plz!), pretty much any form of stupidity, mayonnaise, complicated mathematics, the bad puns in Jeopardy! clues
Hobbies: reading manga/watching anime, singing (chorus dorks represent!), writing, acting, drawing poorly, being a retard on the internet, being a retard NOT on the internet, hanging out with my friends, building cosplay out of Goodwill items and hot glue
Talents: I sing well; I'm in the top chorus class at my school and I'm also a soloist in the female a cappella group. I can quote movies and anime like NOBODY'S BUSINESS, and I can Six Degrees of Whoever from Animorphs to Buffy (because I'm a dork like that). I'm also really good at making friends/trying to include everyone. ^_^
Strong Points: extraverted/outgoing, friendly, creative, honest/trustworthy, good with grammar/English
Weak Points: occasionally overbearing, honest to a fault, scatterbrained, lazy/procrastinator, not very physically strong, poor at science class
Points You Like About Yourself: my ability to carry on a decent conversation, my flexibility/willingness to go along with things, self-confidence, and uh...my friends. They're "about me," right?
Mature or Immature?: It depends on the circumstances; I'm kind of a goofball/kid at heart, but I know when to clean up my act.
Leader or Follower?: I'm better at like, second-in-command positions, really. I usually don't like to be in charge of anything unless I know EXACTLY what I'm doing, but in those situations I'm not that bad at it.
Introverted or Extroverted?: Extroverted. (Is it extro- or extra-? I've seen it both ways...*confused*)
Loud or Quiet?: LOUD. :D
Normal or Abnormal?: strange.
Neat or Messy?: messsyyyyyy.
Optimistic or Pessimistic?: Optimistic. :)
What do your enemie-- er, friends think of you?: I think they think I'm a little overwhelming/too much sometimes, but I know they all really love me or they wouldn't be my friends. ^_^ I'd like to think they all know they can always count on me, because they can. Most of my friends know each other through me, and sometimes I get called the ringleader, so I guess that's true too.
Describe your personality in a couple of words: eccentric, gregarious, sparkly and spontaneous. ^__^
Your goal/dream?: My dream job would be working as a voice-over actor for animation/video games. Before I die, I'd like to go all over the world, and I'd love to leave an impact when I die - be famous.
Color: ORANGE. ^____^ Last year I had a personal challenge to wear orange SOMETHING to school every day, and I accomplished it. This year now that it's over, everyone's freaking out ("WHERE'S YOUR ORANGE? OH NO, APOCALYPSE!!")
Animal: oh, that's tough. I really like: monkeys (I collect them), cats, foxes, rabbits, frogs, snakes and fish (my zodiac signs XD), penguins, panda bears, and raccoons.
Food: It's either shrimp - any way you cook 'em - or chocolate. But not together.
Quote: Ohhhh man, that's so hard! As an avid movie quote spewer, I have a hard time choosing, but I'm just so in love with Harry McDougal from Outlaw Star that this might have to be "Nothing good can ever come from staying with normal people." XD
If your friend was in danger (any situation), would you help them or leave them to rot and die?: OF COURSE NOT! I love my friends and even if it put me in danger I would try to help them as much as I could
If you found a wallet on the floor, filled with a ridiculously large amount of cash and about a dozen different credit cards-- would you take it to the police station; yell out "DID SOMEONE DROP THIS?"; keep it for yourself?; or deny being a follower and do something completely out of the
Your shadow is suddenly giving you orders and calling you its slave?! What's your reaction?: Somewhere between "STFU, you're not even a corporeal form!" and ";_; you're so mean," depending on what the orders were.
You've found an abandoned puppy in the rain. What do you do?: Uh, I take it to a shelter. I don't really like dogs, but baby animals of any sort are ADORABLE and need to...not die.
Okage: Shadow King
Who is your favorite Okage character and why?: It's Linda, basically because I liked her more than Marlene and I identified with her more than Rosalyn. She and Epros and Ari, I guess. Linda the most, though, because she was badass enough to be a girl and still be an Evil KING. Also, she's a singer, like me; I liked her even back at the beginning of the game before I knew she was going to be a party member, and then spazzed when she was.
Least favorite and why?: I got kind of sick of Marlene, she was kind of snobby and that's a character type that really irks me. I also was less than impressed with Kisling; I mean, I liked his character himself, but he kind of sucked to play with, and I swapped him out as soon as I got Big Bull. (My party most of the game was Ari, Big Bull, and Linda.)
If you had a chance to spend an entire day with one of the characters, who would you choose? Note: You CANNOT choose Stan: It would definitely be Linda. I seriously considered answering "Ari" to this question, because I like him a lot, but I can't help but feel like I'd have more FUN with Linda. She's quirky like me. XD ON THE OTHER HAND, maybe Epros, because I love him, and I want him to teach me how to do makeup, because I'm utterly crap at makeup and need some help.
Favorite pairing?: THREESOME WHUT: Epros x Ari x Linda. Mostly because while I totally love Epros x Linda, I'm convinced that Epros is gay. XD
Which character would you compare yourself to and why?: Linda again. I'm not quite as girly as she is, but I'm wacko and I love to sing, and I thought her attacks were really awesome.
Human!Stan or Shadow!Stan?: Shadow!Stan!!! Like Linda, I was very scared of him once he became human. Stan doesn't work as a blond for me. X|
Anything else, human?: I SWEAR TO GOD, I'M NOT TRYING TO RIG THIS TO GET LINDA. IT JUST HAPPENED. T___T;
Also: HI RESURIE! I'M IRL FRIENDS WITH tentacle! I srsly had no idea you were running this until I clicked through; awesomeness. XD
Oh, and I just noticed that one of the community's interests is "ari is uke," which pretty much makes my entire life. XD XD ♥
Pictures or describe what you look like: UH-OH! TIME TO BREAK OUT MY STAN VANITY SHOT!
That's me pretending like I'm actually in my Ari cosplay (it's much better now; that was basically stuff I had in my closet/dresser). The Stan is made from construction paper, pipe cleaners, and a headlight deflector pole (you know, those little red shiny things on top of the sticks that you stick in the ground - only without the red shiny thing). He is my pride and joy and is currently sitting jammed into a container full of wrapping paper rolls behind my head.
This is me NOT being Ari. This is me at Dairy Queen. XD
