Pick one of your OCs. 2.
Fill in the questions/statements as if you were said chosen OCs.3.
Tag at least four people to do this meme.
The chosen OC(s):
Sapphira, Alicia, Merric, Benevol
1. What is your name?
*Sapphira's about to open her mouth until Alicia furiously points at "The Chosen OC(s)" header.*
Alicia: Read the damn section.2. Do you know why you were named that?
Sapphira: According to Benevol's files, it's supposed to mean something like, "Beautiful Harvest". And some gibberish about naming me to fit in with everyone else.
Alicia: Magical alias. Not telling you my real name in this current lifetime.
Merric: Don't know.
Benevol: I have better things to do right now...
3. Are you single or taken?
Sapphira: Why isn't polyandry or polygamy an option?
Alicia: You know... I have to agree with Saph on this, even though she's nutters. It doesn't cover the multitudes of relations that I have with various daemons.
Merric: Saph already said it too.
Benevol: Irrelevant.4. Do you have any abilities or powers?
Sapphira: Electricity! And I'm such an awesome person to be born with this. Look at what I can do! *Runs off and then offers the writer of this journal a bouquet of paraplegics*
Alicia: Fate probability manipulation, pyrokinesis, and aura ripping in that order. Though, I wouldn't want to monopolize on them. They're everyone's birthright.
*Merric: Light manipulation and all the perks of being a haustian. Wouldn't give it up for anything in the world.
Benevol: Light manipulation and expertise with magical genetic engineering.
Both Merric and Saph are haustians, but Merric's particularly... patriotic about his newfound form. Saph just sees her haustian abilities as something that's normal.
5. Stop being a Mary-Sue!
Sapphira: *Tilts head and twitches ears* What's a Maruu suu?
Alicia: If you consider having near infinite memory a blessing, you're wrong. Dead
wrong. In fact, you're going to wish
that you could die after what I've been through. *She cracks a smirk as sleek as a crow's claw.* But I'm here and that's what matters.
Merric: I'm pretty sure I'm not fictional.
Benevol: ...I don't know and I don't care?6. What's your eye color?
Sapphira: Gray blue.
Alicia: That depends. Now, if you're asking about my current life's eye colors, that would be golden brown.
Benevol: ...Sky blue.
7. How about hair color?
Alicia: Light purple.
Benevol: Very, very, very light blue.8. Have you any family members?
Sapphira: *shakes head*
Alicia: *Looks at Saph, Merric, and Benevol.* Does anyone else find these questions absurdly narrow-minded?
Benevol: Maybe they're narrow-minded if you keep thinking they're only asking about your current incarnation.
Alicia: But that's how people operate
. At least these
Merric: *glances at Alicia arguing with Benevol* Anyway... All of my blood family're royal pricks, literally. Love the hell out of my foster family though.
9. Oh? How about pets?
*Sapphira holds up a pet chicken and shoves it in the questioner's face.* Isn't she adorbs?
Alicia: I guess that crow I talk to every Sunday would count if it weren't for the fact we talk with each other as equals.
Benevol: No. Tarvos keeps thinking that I think that he's my pet though and makes a huge beef out of it. There are some things called necessary secrets
.10. That's cool I guess. Now tell me something that you don't like.
Sapphira: Watermelons. They're plants and I can't eat plants.
Alicia: Solomonic summoners. *She takes in a deep breath.* To say that they make my blood boil would be an understatement. When I hear one of those ignoramuses prostrate themselves before my gods in fear and torture the hell out of them, I can't stand how everyone just pours sympathy for the torturer.
Benevol: The populace of Alphe-Terra that aren't concerned for the haustians. Seriously, why was I the one that had to start the support systems for them?
Merric: Alicia and Benevol've covered it for me. Other than that, makeup and perfumes. They promote dishonesty and are completely unneeded expenses.
11. Do you have any activities/hobbies that you like to do?
Sapphira: Working with circuits. Means I can use my powers in cool new ways without using as much of my own abilities.
Alicia: Magic working, calligraphy, drawing, *Alicia stares at the list she's kept across a few lifetimes*... Yeah. I don't feel like listing off the ones that aren't consistent across my lifetimes.
Merric: Songs. Sex. Mind games. In about that order.
Benevol: Creature design. I love the idea of filling new ecological niches with my own hands.12. Have you ever hurt anyone before?
Sapphira: Oh, hun, I've hurt lots
of people. It's the meaning of my existence.
Alicia: Physically and spiritually, only the crazy ones. Emotionally, well... apparently my relationship choices hurt everyone because they think I'm going to be damned to a fiery pit. FYI, Hell's not a pit and I have a room reservation there. It's a pretty neat place to stay in when the other residents aren't picking at me for my other quirks.
Merric: Voluntarily? Only hypocritical asshats. There are some casualties I can't avoid though.
Benevol: I try not to hurt anyone, but it's like no matter what
I do, someone in some way can and will get hurt. i
14. What kind of animal are you?
Benevol: Viltal.15. Worst habits?
Sapphira: Eating sweets. I know I shouldn't be eating them, but gods-damned they're so fucking delicious. Not as delicious as what I usually eat though.
Alicia: Wanting to write a curse for every ignoramus that pisses me off. Sometimes I forget to stop constructing it in my head and then bad things happen. Yeah...
Merric: I'd...say it has to do with my food preferences, if we go with what the transcriber says about me. What I would say is not learning to shut up at times. I know I can't stand idiots, but sometimes I just talk
Benevol: Not getting out regularly. Even though Tarvos used this as an excuse to leave my office, he does
have a point. There are times where I forgot to replace the plants I keep in there.
16. Do you look up to anyone at all?
Sapphira: No. Why should I when I'm the most awesome person I know?
Alicia: Shamash and Merric. Shamash is pretty obvious because he's the god of the sun and justice
. Yes. I've had the pleasure of being one of his top high priestesses before the sudden disappearance way back then. As for Merric, it's because he didn't ignore me after I made a certain mistake that I'd raaather not want to talk about. That greatly helped with my road to recovery.
Merric: Benevol and Saph. Benevol because he's the one viltal that chose to humble himself to prove what the viltal had to say about non-humanoid emotions. Saph because she gave me the power to finally act on the injustices I saw in the world.
Benevol: Had the court case ruled in my favor, I would've said Aeon and Deigin. But it didn't.17. I'm omitting this one too, its ridicule.
*All four of them look at the questioner warily.*
18. Do you go to school?
Alicia: Lots of them. The magic academies in the past were awesome
because they didn't fluff up any crap. I should know since I wrote the curriculum.
Merric: Yes. I flunked my history courses though because I kept referring to Benevol's actions in a somewhat neutral manner instead of the "Oh my gods, Benevol's an asshole!"
Benevol: Of course.19. Ever want to marry and have kids one day?
Sapphira: I dunno. I'm good at taking care of the kids I come across, but I also eat other people's children if they have a loving family they can rely on. I never had that when growing up. So maybe the best answer for this'd be...no?
Alicia: I'd consider it if more people were willing to study magic.
Merric: I'd love to, but... Saph. Really, just read her answer.
Benevol: I technically have an extended family already from my lab work, so... yes and no?
20. Whoops, should've skipped that last question Do you have fangirls/fanboys?
Sapphira: I used to have a huge fanbase, but then the transcriber chased them away because they kept romanticizing me. Now, I can understand that because they kept getting me wrong, but if they portrayed me correctly? I would bathe
myself in that fame.
Alicia: According to the transcriber, I have one very, very enthusiastic fan off-site.
Merric: On Alphe-Terra? A huge fanbase that irritates my nerves. At least they're a reliable food source. Off of Alphe-Terra, quite a few people.
Benevol: I'd say every haustian, but they're more like family instead of like a fanbase.21. What are you most afraid of?
Sapphira: I'd rather not disclose.
Alicia: *pastes Saph's answer over her slot and Merric's*
Benevol: The populace of Alphe-Terra. Seriously, they can be fucking nuts sometimes.
22. What do you usually wear?
Sapphira: Tube tops and pants. Sometimes a fisherman's vest and pants if I'm the mood to play, "Pretend to be a human for a few centuries" to carry all my goodies on me.
Alicia: During spellwork, I wear a black cloak covered with feathers, golden gauntlets, and golden boots. Don't worry, I've got consent from the birds whose feathers are on the cloak. Otherwise, formal business suit.
Merric: Red and gold formal coat with matching pants.
Benevol: Lab coat and jewellery. Caeli keeps thinking I have a superiority complex because of the jewellery.23. What's one food that tempts you?
Sapphira: Other than sweets? People! People're soooo delicious.
Alicia: Hrm... *thinks* Surprisingly I can't name one. Strange.
Merric: That would be you. Need I say anything more?
Benevol: Nothing, really. Life force is life force.24. Am I annoying you?
Alicia: Yes... At least I expected you to be this stupid.
Benevol: You're wasting my time.25. Well it's still not over!
*The other three groan and cup their faces*
Sapphira: Can I get a snack when we're done? I'm kinda hungry.
26. What class are you (low class, middle class, high class)?
Sapphira: I'm above your petty notions of class because I don't give a shit about what social standing my food's from.
Alicia: Currently middle to high class.
Merric: I'd say high class because of my economic standing.
Benevol: I'd classify myself as middle class even though I'm a god. A god needs to remain connected with the common people to do his job right.27. How many friends do you have?
Sapphira: Um... *counts on hands* I think two to five. One of them's off-site and the other one's the transcriber.
Alicia: I am not
your friend, Saph.
Sapphira: But you're friends with Merric, so that means you're friends with me.
Alicia: It doesn't
work that way, Saph.
Merric: Four. One of them's dead though and he was a nice chap...
Benevol: I don't feel like counting right now.
28. What are your thoughts on pie?
Sapphira: Meat pie?
Merric: Cream pie?
Alicia: I'm not sure if that's supposed to be an innuendo, Merric.
Merric: It could've been, but no. I actually did love cream pie when I was human.
Benevol: I bet if I made sentient pies that no one would give a flipping fuck how I fed the haustians.29. Kawaii or sugo
*Alicia shoves the other three behind her, her face crumpled like the shifting earth underneath a volcano.* Look, questioner. You don't just take words from other languages and defile
them by using them in ways you think are endearing. That's how we got into this shithole we're in now.
30. Favorite drink?
Sapphira: Sweet wine and blood? Depends on my mood.
Alicia: It isn't necessarily a drink, but... the ambrosia. Once you know how to make it, I swear, you'll think it's the best thing since buttered bread.
Benevol: I: Your life. No, I'm not going to kill you, but that is
what we viltal drink.31. What's your favorite place?
Sapphira: I have like, this bouncy house. It's like this long and yay big and it's got these tubs of 4th dimensional goop. I can use it to store all sorts of weird things.
Alicia: Astral temple. Gives me alone time from all the idiots around me.
Merric: Depends on who's there rather than the place itself. Gotta keep those connections when on the run.
Benevol: If it wasn't obvious, my lab.
32. Are you interested in anyone~?
Sapphira: I'm interested in everyone
Alicia: I thought we covered this already.
Benevol: Well apparently the questioner thinks we didn't.
Merric: I'm just going to copy paste Saph's answer here, okay?33. Sorry, that was a stupid question.
*All four blink and blankly stare*
34. Would you rather swim in a lake or in the ocean?
Sapphira: Wherever the people go, I go there too.
Alicia: Lake. There're too many people gathered around the beaches near the ocean outlets.
Merric: Either, really. Foster parents told me how to talk with the wildlife.
Why not fly to various star systems?
That was the next thing on the list of things to get started on Alphe-Terra because we would have more experience talking with more species. And that's always good.
35. What's your personality type?
Sapphira: Depends on who you ask. If you ask my transcriber, she'd say that I was the most awesome person in the world because I can dedicate my time to just listening to her. Now, if you ask anyone else? They'd say I'm an extraordinary sadist who adores the spotlight.
Alicia: I see myself as a sort of dark hero, going 'round dealing out karmic punishments. Others tend to see me as a hybristophile just
because I actually know what the term demon originated from.
Merric: My transcriber keeps attaching the Chivalrous Pervert trope to me :I. And Knight in Sour Armor.
Benevol: I hope
I'm humble because if I'm not, then that means that I'm not doing my job right.
36. Any fetishes?
Sapphira: *stares blankly*
Alicia: Hrm... There's two prominent ones. I'd rather elaborate on these in private.
Merric: I'd love to talk about this more, but could we do it in private?
Benevol: Not. Relevant.Transcriber's note:
Technically Sapphira does have them and she can
describe what she likes about them. She just doesn't know what the word means.37. Seme or uke?
Alicia: What did I tell you about defiling words not from your own language?38. Camping or indoors?
Sapphira: Is there going to be a sleepover? I LOVE sleepovers! I can get lotsa goodies from them
Alicia: Wherever the fuck I want.
And now, I tag these people:
