I was also… sort of… nominated by Lemon. (She said she wasn’t going to nominate me because I’d already been nominated… so she left it open to anyone who wanted to do the tag… and after reading the questions she asked her nominees, I decided I wanted to answer them.)

What is one vice you must fight against the most often?
I struggle with procrastination, and with having absolutely no motivation to do things I know I should and must do.
Which fictional character can you relate to the most and why?
- Hermione Granger — she loves to read and visit the library (and other reasons that are harder to articulate).
- Janner Wingfeather — he’s an oldest sibling and shares my vice of selfishness and my desire to protect
- Jo March — she loves to write and wants to make it her career, and she’s passionate and emotional and dramatic
- Anne Shirle — she sees beauty all around her and loves adventure
- Emily Starr — she declares she can’t help writing
Pick three historical figures you wish to meet and have tea/coffee with. What you would discuss with them?
J.R.R. Tolkien, Teddy Roosevelt, and Lazarus.
Tolkien because I want to talk about Middle-earth and inventing languages and worldbuilding and faith. Teddy Roosevelt because I just read about him in history and he sounds absolutely fascinating (I’d just ask him to tell me about his adventures, then sit back and enjoy the show). And Lazarus because, well, don’t you want to know what it’s like to die?
What story world would you choose to live in until your dying breath? (Yep, there’s no goin’ back.)
That is SUCH A HARD QUESTION.
I think I’ll go with Lemon and say Goldstone Wood because there are so many amazing places to explore. But Middle-earth is a close second.
What is one movie you wish more people would watch? (Or a book if you’re really not into films.)
Some of my favorite movies that I wish more people would watch:
What is your preferred weapon of murder? With fictional characters, I mean…what else would I mean?
Iocaine powder. Because if I were to murder someone, I wouldn’t want my weapon to be traceable.
Do you prefer fiction, nonfiction, or poetry (to read, write, etc.)?
To read, I prefer fiction (though I do enjoy some nonfiction — Adorning the Dark and Death by Living in particular — and I recently wrote a post all about the poetry I like to read.)
To write, I also prefer fiction. Poetry takes a lot of work to perfect.
If you could be one age for a day, what age would you be and what would you do?
Eighteen. And I’d vote. Assuming it was an election year.
(I am, in fact, going to vote this fall. It will be the first presidential election at which I am old enough to do so, and I am very excited.)
Or eleven and go to Hogwarts.
Or fifty, and go on an adventure with Gandalf.
Do you ship Earnin and Imraldera? (if you don’t know who they are or don’t know the answer, it’s easy: it’s yes, you do)
Yes, I do.
Which of your bloggery buddies (alliteration always amazes) would you end and why (back to murder, we are!). How would you cover it up?
You, for creating this question *glares at Lemon*
Ha, no, I couldn’t kill anyone, least of all my blogging buddies.
