Lucy: I love her so much! -Me: ...don't you love very one?- But I love you almost as much as Oscar. XD -Me: Awww thanks Lucy-
Lee: She's okay. I liked her more before this interview. -Me: Hey!...well I guess I deserve it.-
Degan: *stares at me* -Me:....what?- *looks away* -Me: Hey! What's that supposed to mean!?-

Lucy: I love them all! -Me: You're just so full of love aren't you?- Yup!
Lee: Fire. -Me: *rolls eyes* Of course.-
Degan: Can I leave yet? -Me: I wish, there's 34 questions in all.- *groans*

24) Who is your superior?
Nino: The highest powers consider me an equal...so I guess no one. But I consider Granny Geno my superior. She raised me after my parents died.
Ryan: My mom.
Lucy: What? Uhhhh, oh! Natasha and Sherri. They're the two incharge of our little group.
Lee: No one. It doesn't really apply to me.
Degan: Same as Lucy. -_-

25) Sexual orientation?
Nino: HUH!? Straight! Who comes up with these!?
Ryan: *chokes* What!? Straight! Why would you even think that!?

Lee: No. Only what Natasha thinks matters. -Me: Awww you're finally being proud of your love!- *pushes me over*
Degan: No.

27) Your theme song?
Nino: Do I? -Me: I don't really think about stuff like this. ^_^'-
Ryan: Yes? *looks at me* -Me: Yes! You do have one....many.... "It Doesn't Matter" from Sonic Adventure DX and "Reach for the Stars" from Sonic Colors are two of them.-
Lucy: Uhhh....*looks at me also* -Me:I told Nino that I don't really think about stuff like this- Oh, so Ryan's the only with one, and he even has MORE than one! -Me: Sorry! I had to think of some for him before!-
Lee: Apperantly not. -Me: Wait! "Need You" by Travie McCoy would be a good one for you.- ....why? -Me: Because you need Natasha! Hahahaha! XD- *shoves me over again.*
Degan: No. -Me: Exactly.-

28) What's your species?
Ryan: We're all human right guys? *everyone nodds*

29) What makes you sad?
Nino: When I feel like I've failed someone.
Ryan: When someone close to me is sad.
Lucy: When Oscar isn't happy.
Lee: When I do something that hurts Natasha in anyway.
Degan: And you want to know why? -Me: He doesn't show feelings very often.-

30) What would you change in your past?
Nino: I would've somehow kept my parents alive.
Ryan: I would've stopped my dad from leaving on his adventure.
Lucy: I would've have done that to Oscar...Didn't I answer something like this already?
Lee: I would have made sure Natasha didn't get sick and almost die....
Degan: Nothing. -Me: Wow. You know! I wish I knew more of your past.-

31) What are your goals you want to achieve on your journey ^^?
Nino: I'm not really on a journey....
Ryan: To find my dad.
Lucy: To get my brother back to normal. -Me: I'm not sure that's possible....- Well that's my goal!
Lee: To make sure I'm not sent back to the momodo world.
Degan: To not return home.

32) Give one fact from your past.
Nino: My parents were killed by the villagers while protecting me.
Ryan: Gil and my dad left on the same adventure and we became friends shortly after. :D
Lucy: .....-Me: You're not going to say that one are you?- *closes eyes and blurts out* I accidently killed Oscar and the Sea Witch brought him back to life! But...he doesn't look like he did before. *starts crying* -Me: Wait! Don't cry! Oscar! Lucy's crying! Oscar: *comes and comforts Lucy*-
Lee: I was accidently added to the momodo battle. Technically I'm not even on the list of candidates, so I don't know what will happen to me if my book isn't burned when the last offical momodo is left.
Degan: I ran away from home.

33) If you could cosplay as any character, who would it be?
Nino: Well...maybe Hatsune Miku. I could dye my hair her color. It's long enough!
Ryan: Ummm....Monkey D. Luffy! I've been told I act like him a lot! -Me: Technically, I based you off him when I first created you. You're a lot cooler than him now. ^_^-
Lucy: Oh oh! Lucy from Fairy Tail! Then I wouldn't have to change my name, or wear a wig since we have the same hair color! -Me: Really? That's why?-
Lee: I don't think anyone really.....
Degan: Are we done yet? -Me: Almost.-

34) Give one fact that most people don't know about you.
Nino: Ummm, when I get really angry my eyes turn purple and wolf ears and a tail appear. When I get really excited only the ears and tail appear.
Ryan: That I actually can draw. Just because I do it a lot doesn't mean that people know. Gil knows but that's because he's know me forever.
Lucy: The heart on my cheek isn't permenant. I draw it on everyday!
Lee: I was an apprentice blacksmith to my dad. I could make you almost anything if you gave me the right tools.
Degan: *glares* -Lucy: He likes to read. Like I said before. :D- Shut up Lucy!

35) Would you do this interview again?
Nino: Maybe, if it was shorter.
Ryan: Yeah! Like ten times shorter!
Lucy: It doesn't need to be shorter. I thought it was just fine!
Lee: Definantly not.
Degan: No.

Me: I tag you all!!!!

Anime Survey

1) What was the first anime/manga you've ever seen/read?
Hmm Pokemon, Digimon, and One Piece were all around the same time...

2) What is your favorite anime/manga hands down?
Oh! FMA and Fairy Tail! Azumanga Daioh and Oban Star Racers (yes it's an anime! >:( ), are pretty close to.

3) How about the worst?
Death Note. It's really well written, but it's the only one that couldn't get all the way through. And let me tell you, I'm usually pretty good with any series.

4) Who's your anime crush (if you have one)? State the name and what anime they're from please!
Uhhh....I'm pretty sure there's many. I tend to like the short tempered, hot headed guys, funny guys. So, umm...prolly any of these (I like real people over anime, but if you ask my 'bout my OCs....XD), Zoro (One Piece) Ed (FMA) Inuyasha or Koga (Inuyasha) Natsu or Gray (Fairy Tail). Those are the only ones I can think of right now....yeah....I really don't have any anime crushes! O_o

5) What's your favorite anime opening?
Most all the the Fairy Tail Openings, but especially R.P.G. Rockin' Playing Game, Fiesta, and the OVA opening Eternal Fellows

6) Do you support any relationships in the animes/mangas you watch/read? If so, which is your favorite?
I do, but I don't really have a favorite. I can tell you which pairings I don't like though!

7) Shoujo or Shounen?
I'm not partial to either. Like I said earlier I'm pretty good with anything. So which ever has a good story line!

8) Do you prefer anime or manga?
I love them both, but I tend to watch anime more than read manga. It's just easier for me to get ahold of an episode than buy a manga. (I HATE reading manga online, but I will if I have to.) The manga is usually always better than the anime though.

9) Okay, I'm giving you permission to bring one anime character back to life who's died in their show. Who's it gonna be?
Hughes from FMA is a big one!!! I cried when he died!! Well...almost.... Other than that, I can't really think of anyone else from the top of my head.

10) When one life is born, another one ends. Pick a character you'd want to see dead.
All the characters I want dead die in their story...:/ Oh oh oh oh! Tamaki from Ouran High School Host Club! He bugs me, sorry.

11) Do you like animes with a "happily ever after" ending, or do you like them filled with angst and bittersweetness?
Hahaha, I like happy endings. Yeah, I'm lame like that.

12) Which anime character can you relate to the most?
Uhhh....Probably Osaka from Azumanga Daioh. I think of the strangest things, and am happy over the smallest things.

13) Are you KIRA???????
NO!!!! ....Maybe....WHO TOLD YOU!?

14) If I picked you up and dropped you in an anime, would you be the hero, the villain, the unsuspecting victim, the annoying character everyone wants gone, or the comic relief?
Probably the comic relief.

15) From a scale of 1 to 10...how much of an Anime Freak are you?
Most likely a 6, 7, or 8. Anime is like...the only thing I watch, other than movies, but I read a lot of other books and talk about a ton of other things..in short. I do have a life outside of anime.

I love this song, and the show. Song is Chance to Shine sung by AKINO. The show created by the French and Japanese, that's why it's an anime....and that it's been and Anime Cons deems it anime worthy. :P

Buffy vs Edward Cullen!

This vid was the highlight of my whole day yesterday! Omigosh, really, I was having a TMNT marathon with my friends because we're nerds like that, and during the break one of my friends, I'll call him Mr.J, said he wanted to show us something. So I gave him my laptop and he brought this up. We all gathered around Mr.J and watched this. We're all not the biggest fans of Twilight, so this was the hilarious! Hope you all enjoy it as well!
