Two blondes, A and B, drive past a wheat field. In the middle of the field, another blonde is kayaking. A says 'God, that's the type of person who makes all blondes look stupid, seriously'. B answers 'I know, right? If I knew how to swim, I'd go slap her'.
Oh man, that joke. . . I spit up my coffee all over my laptop screen I hope you don't mind if I steal it, because it's now in my archives.
My opinion on Romance stories: That's a difficult question. Romance stories are like really bad relationships, you want to get out of writing them, but something about it intrigues you. I started writing them because a lot of people who read HPFF are in it for those kinds of stories (am I right?). That all being said, I guess I respect them, but let's be honest here: most of those stories are super inaccurate and that irritates me. Well, that doesn't irritate me so much as the guy/girl significant other who is usually depicted in them. You know what I'm talking about: perfect in every single way. I guess it depends on the characters. My favorite stories are those with awesome characters, and that's why Harry Potter is my ultimate favorite story.
Teen Pregnancy Stories: Honestly, I don't read these. Actually, that was a lie, I've read one, but it was so well written that I wasn't too uncomfortable with it. But yeah. . .these stories make me super uncomfortable. A lot of things that happen with girl bodies makes me uncomfortable. Don't get me wrong, girls are awesome, I just wouldn't want to be one. You guys are hardcore. Er, right so back to the topic, I'm going to have to go with: it depends on the characters in the story, but I tend to stay away from them, because they're kind of strange to me (I still don't know how make-up works). There are so many of them, too, so I guess they're popular?
Favorite character: I have a list, but Remus Lupin is at the top of that list. Oh man, I would kill to be a werewolf! Well, I wouldn't, but you understand that, right? (Put the phone down, I promise I won't hurt you). He is also the coolest guy ever and has become a role model for me as I've aged. A lot of his problems that he deals with in the series are very similar to my own (exempting Lycanthropy, of course), so I just love the guy. That being said, Ron Weasley and I are best pals. How I love me some Ron (Now that I've effectively freaked you out. . .).
Least Favorite: Snape. This might stem from the fact that when I read the first book, I thought he was a bad guy up until the end (When Quirrell came out of no where and blew our minds! Oh Rowling. . .how I love you so), but, come on! The guy's a creep. Well, for one, I don't believe in the whole "looking into each other's eyes" trope, so I'm against everything he stands for, in regards to loving Lily. I understand that she's epic, but that's just disturbing to me. In fact, while I'm at it, Harry having his mother's eyes doesn't seem like such a big deal to me. To be fair, I don't go around talking to orphaned kids with mad wizarding skills, so maybe I shouldn't talk. Back to the topic, second, Snape just needs to settle down with a nice witch and just forget his schooling days. You were bullied, Snape, it happened, move on. Lastly, I just don't like him. If he was a real person in my life, we would probably be bitter enemies.
Favorite type of pie: Banana Cream (Mmmm...)
Bellatrix or Voldemort: Depends on the situation. If I'm fighting them, I'm taking Voldy, because he might be good at magic, but I've got a mean punch. If I was befriending them, I'd choose Bells, because she's psychotic! Gah, I just like how crazy and insane she is. If I had to choose which one is more evil, I'd have to go with Voldy. To be honest, I don't think Ole' Voldy actually cared about "pure blood supremacy," I think he was just using it as a facade to gain power. Bella, on the other hand, was raised into bigotry, and I know this isn't a real excuse because she can make her own choices, but at least she's semi-decent. Well, that's a lie, she isn't. Whatever, Umbridge trumps them both on the whole "evil" thing.
Chocolate: I have my heart set on milk, but I enjoy the dark too.
Wow, what an awesome graphic and what awesome questions! My answers are pathetic, but that's just because it's a Tuesday. There's just something about Tuesdays that sets me off.
Argh, I can't believe you're making me do this. Ok, here goes.
What do you call an alligator in a vest?
An INVESTIGATOR! *snort*
I'm so proud of you *wipes tear from eye*. That joke is epic, and I'm adding it to my archive with ValWitch21's.
1-Oh good, I've been dying to bring this up. What the heck?! Organizing children into different clubs based on their personality?! I have a few of problems with this: One, it creates stereotypes (If you've seen AVPM: "I've just been putting the one's who look evil in Slytherin, and the one's who look good in Gryffindor. The rest can go where ever they want, I don't care." -Dumbledore). Two, I didn't know what kind of person I was until I got to my freshman year at college. People change, it's just a part of life. Three, putting these kids into houses gives them unrealistic expectations (Not every one is as freaking awesome as Potter). I know I'd probably be huddled in a corner if I was sorted into Slytherin (" I must be cunning and achievement-oriented," soapman333 mumbled to himself as he pulled on his hair). That all being said, GO BIRD-BRAINS!
2-I used an adventure time quote (modified) in a story of mine! Be proud! My favorite character is Lumpy Space Princess: "First, I'm going to fall in love with one of these little guys, and then I'm going to fall out of love. Then, I'm gonna fake die of a fake heart attack! (does some heart attack theatrics) Oh my heart, my heart hurts because I fell out of loooove, and now I have to die! OOHHHH!"
3-I just died a little inside. ALBERT CAMUS! I have a "quote pic" of him that I can send to you if you want (not fan art, but still cool, kinda). My favorite is The Stranger, because of his use of dialogue in the first part! The Plague is a close second place, only because I want to punch Othon in the face! It's fair to say that he annoyed me, but I still got really upset when he died from the plague. As for relevance today, geez, I haven't analyzed that since high school: It was written about WWII as an anti-nazi propaganda (right? I guess I should check, but I'm too lazy), so I'm pretty sure it spoke against isolation and discrimination or something. The people with the plague (or have family with the plague) would represent that. Did I get that all right, I just remember Othon and how abusive he was, the idiot.
4- Favorite feminist issue. . .should I have a favorite? I've got plenty of maleist issues (I made that word up because I don't remember the real word for it). Like how the playboy always gets the awesome girls in the stories! Oh, I know, I'll turn that around. The girls with awesome personalities always go after the "players" in stories, and it infuriates me, because I feel like she's lowering her standards. I don't care how buff/handsome the bloke is, he's got some serious commitment issues and you aren't going "fix him" by dating him. How was that? Maybe you should tell me what your feminist issue is and I'll ponder this all a little more.
5-Psshh, I've already done this today. . .maybe.
There, I answered all of your questions! Are you proud of me, yet?
Soapman333 stares at the screen until he realizes that it won't talk back to him, and that he has a pathetic life.
Thanks for dropping by
