The Basics of your personality.
Name/Nickname? Lauren. I go by the nicknames of Takato and Tak.
Age? (No one under 13, please) 21, turning 22 in November
Zodiac? Scorpio in Western, Ox in Chinese
Would you like to be rated as a girl/boy/no matter? Boy, please. I really dislike most of the girls from the FF series, about the only few I do like are Yuffie, Garnet and Fran.
Favorite color? Why?
Purple, green, dark red and black. I like these colours because I like colours that can have a darker shade as well as a light shade. It sends me the message that people who wear these colours have both light and darkness in them.
Favorite FF game? Why?
Final Fantasy IX. I was enraptured by its storyline, and I loved all the characters. I don't think there was anyone I hated aside from Kuja and the Queen. IX was most definitely my favourite, right next to VII.
Favorite FF Character? Why?
Garnet/Dagger. I like her because she's basically one of the ONLY FF females with a personality and purpose in the game other than to be a rival for the other female members of the party for the main guy. Garnet's character evolved with the game, whereas the other females of FF had their character development right at the start or basically so.
Are there any FF Characters you dislike?
Um... *tries to use fingers* Yuna, Brother, LeBlanc, Quina, Kuja, the Queen, Rinoa, Seifer, Selphie, Tifa, Aerith...yeah...I don't like a fair bit of the characters...
I recently took a four-week crash course in sewing, and I found I like it a lot (I'm hoping to make my Sanzo costume sometime soon!). Though I'm hardly a master seamstress (as I have a lot of trouble sewing zips in), I also enjoy writing and drawing, and researching mythology and cultures. Mythology is one of the things I really love, ever since taking Ancient Civilizations classes in college, and I enjoy the different types of things I find out (such as the fact that in Egyptian mythology, Seth gave his own nephew Osiris the very first pick-up line, and that still amuses me).
What are your strong attributes?
I'm lovable, friendly and creative. I'll always fight for and probably die for my nakama (friends); I love them so much, especially since they're so forgiving for all the shit I do. I have a wild imagination sometimes, and I also care very much for everyone around me. I'm described by my family as the kindest, most caring person you'll find, and it's most likely true; mum said one day that I'd most likely give my last two cents to the hobo on the street corner, though I'm more likely to give it to my friends if they were in a jam with money.
I can be very protective of my nakama, to the point of being willing to kill someone who hurts them. I'm loyal, intelligent, and it takes a long time to gain my trust after all the hurt I've gone through in the past.
What are your weak attributes?
I can get easily flustered and cry a lot, especially if I'm having a panic attack. I'm gullible almost to the extent of being pitiful. I can't handle money very well, as I seem to spend it the moment I get it. I'm also very selfish and can get jealous quite easily, though my jealousy has toned down somewhat after my girlfriend broke up with me last October for that reason. I can get slightly pouty without meaning to as well. I can also get very depressed in a short amount of time.
Optimistic or Pessimistic?
Pessimistic, with a bit of optimism, depending on my mood.
Extroverted or Introverted? (Outgoing or Shy)
Outgoing when I'm with my friends, shy/reserved around strangers.
Confident or Modest?
Modest. I'm comfortable with stating something I clearly cannot or will not do.
Mature or Immature?
A bit of both, depending on situations and my mood. I can be mature with my family and immature with a bit of maturity with my friends.
Logical or Intuitive?
Intuitive. I listen more to my intuition than I do to logic.
Deeper into your personality
What are some things you love?
Reading, sewing, drawing, writing, mythology, history, cultures, anime and manga, Japanese/classical/instrumental music, videogames, board games, movies, pirates, ninjas.
What are some things you absolutely hate and despise?
MARY SUES! Close-minded, mean and homophobic people, bigotry, crowded places, lables, BRATz *shivers*, stereotypes, fashion, people who dress up their daughters to make them look mature (and they wonder why there's so many rape cases), kids in general, preppies, jocks, bullies, my hormones, food sometimes.
What weapon would you use?
Something dual-wielded, like a bo staff or something. Perhaps some tonfus just to be able to bash someone in the head with a blunt object. I also like guns. Give me a gun and I'll show you a dead body >XP
What superpower would you have if you could only have one superpower (e.g. invisibility, mind-reading) and why?
The power to control electricity. I've always wanted to be able to, and it was actually an XMen OC's who I gave it too XD But yeah. Electricity would be awesome.
If you could be any animal, which would you be? Why?
A wolf. I feel mostly connected with wolves, foxes and dogs. I love them. They're sleek, beautiful creatures, loyal and caring and loving. I like snow-white wolves, and I think foxes are the most gorgeous creatures on Earth. I also like cats, but I'm more connected to dogs.
What are a few items you just couldn't live without?
My iPod, food, my cell phone and my laptop.
Would you rather have a ton of money and power or a ton of friends and supporters? Why?
A ton of friends and supporters. I've had a really hard life finding friends I can depend on thoroughly and completely, considering the torment I went through in school. As stated in my strengths, I love my current friends because they're so forgiving of everything I say and do, whereas some other people might have thought 'right. she's weird. not talking to her anymore'. I would do anything to keep them close by me.
You find that one of your most treasured possessions has disappeared. What do you think is the most likely cause of the disappearance?
Either I've dropped it somewhere or someone's stolen it. I actually had a similar situation with a watch my paternal grandmother gave me (it was her last gift to me - for my 18th - before she died in April the following year). See, I take it off in the car on the way home from work or, as I was in college at the time, school, but usually I put it back on long enough to put it back on my dresser when I get home. I absolutely FREAKED, like nearly panicked. It's one of the few things I have to remind me of her, and luckily it was still sitting in dad's car XD
You have one day (or week?) to live, how do you spend it?
Have a ball. Party but I'd also worry about it. One of my biggest fears is death itself.
Are family or friends more important to you and why?
Friends. My friends are basically my family anyway, as I feel more at home and comfortable when I'm staying over at their house, and when I leave it always feels as though I have to go back and live a lie.
What is your most cherished memory? Why?
I don't really have a lot of good memories to cherish. As stated, I lead a pretty horrible school life up until college because of my large build body-wise, hence why I hate bigotry and bullies.
Would you die for anything?
Depends on what that anything is and if I'm the only person who has to.
What do you think you'll be doing in 5-10 years?
Probably be a professional writer. I love to write, have done ever since I was in high school. There'd also probably be something to do with sewing and data-entry. I can't say for sure where I see myself in five-ten years time, as I like a whole lot of different things I want to do.
Extras...(and for all those fangirls or fanboys out there) What's your favorite pairing?! </b>
And which character do you think you'll be stamped as?
Hmm...that's a toughie...
Where did you hear about us?
If you can, please suggest one thing (new question, question to be taken out, whatever) to make this survey better:
Sorry! I can't at the moment...
Now post at least (3) clear photos of yourself. If you really don't want to post any, or don't have any, describe yourself the best you can. ^_^
As I can't be photographed really well, I only have one picture I actually like of me. Mind you, it was taken nearly three years ago...
