HERE COMES THE WALL!!!
Spoiler
1. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? If so, who?
I probably have, but no one in particular comes to mind.
2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?
I'm gonna go with my honesty. I'm honest to the point of being unable to call out work sick despite wanting to do it almost every morning.
3. Roses or orchids?
Orchids. Definitely. WAY prettier than boring old roses.
4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?
Food. Specifically, Yats. More seriously, knowing that, no matter what, I'm in control of my life.

I'll let you know when I figure that one out.
10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)
Umm... while I enjoy lolcats, I don't go through them often enough to develope a favorite.
11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?
The ability to liquify feet. I think watching Godzilla falling over trying to stand on stumps would totally get a million hits on YouTube.

The miniature dragons from the Pern novels.
17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?
The Louvre (I think I spelled that right). Guns blazing around priceless art pieces. I'm imaging curators screeching as they dive to take bullets in place of famous artwork.
18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?
No, but the colatteral damage couldn't even be counted. We both spend the rest of our lives in a medieval Parisian dungeon, reminiscing about that time we destroyed the Louvre.
19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?
Even split.
20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?
Why not?
Do you, in fact, have any cheese here at all?
*checks fridge*

What is your anti-zombie weapon of choice?
Slow Friends
Are you running to something, or from something?
Yes.
What's the magic word?
If I told you that, I'd have to ki- I mean, I have no idea what you're talking about.
Whatever did you end up doing with that giant melted bag of Gummy-bear goo?
While I intended to try and eat it, I actually left it in tyckspoon's car again and it melted again. He found it about a month later and threw it out.
If it came down to finances alone... SE meet-up or GenCon?
That... is a choice I sincerely hope I will never have to make. But if money was tight to the point that I had to choose? Trogland, all the way.
Beer requests?
Not much interested in beer, usually, so I'm not knowledgeable enough to make a specific request.
What question would you like to be asked?
Any one that allows for equal oppurtunities of ridiculous and serious.

Pi is round, and, quite unfortunately, does not grow on trees.
So many I would spend WAY too long trying to choose.
See above
How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?
The same, really. I don't alternate how I generally behave... usually.
Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?
Comforted in the knowledge that any member of my immediate family (the only current contenders for my most loved one) would want me to choose the large group, I would probably choose the group.
Toss up between archaic and draconic.
What is your least favorite word?
Floral. It's just awkward to say, really.

Sharing a fun game with friends.

Pretty durn peachy, gotta say.

Yeah, a long time ago of course. It was some pink haired girl from Beyblade, but I can't recall the name.

2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?

3. Roses or orchids?
Roses. Definitely roses.

4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?
This question actually gives me pause. A year ago I would most likely simply have said 'my work'. Now it's more a combination of factors: my work, my friends and hope for the future I suppose. Music has also been a great help at times.

5. How did you get to be so awesome?
Hard work and being honest with myself.

6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?
In high school, being one of the outcasts. I wish I had realized earlier I shouldn't let fear hold me back so much.

7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?
Well, there is a cute and nice girl I know, so I suppose it'd be her.

8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?
The first emperor of the Roman Empire: Augstinus.

9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?
For the research I'll have done, for being a decent person and for being honourable.

10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)
I... don't have one. Not that one in that glass though, I feel sorry for that kitty. :(

11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?
Teleportation. I'd teleport him into the sun.

12. Beards or babies?
Beards.

13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?
I think I have, but I can't remember. I sometimes refer to bananas as bananers though. That's the closest thing I can recall.

14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?
Music composed with an abundance of 'whiny' instruments/sounds.

15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?
Erh, I've got nothing stuck in my head right now, actually. At least not anything that qualifies as old-fashioned.

16. Favorite mythological monster?
The phoenix. According to legend it lives 500-1000 years, its song growing sadder is it nears the end of its life at which point it is consumed by its own flames, only to be reborn again for the cycle to begin anew. It is that resurrection I find most appealing. Although the phoenix will perish in flames, it will always rise from its ashes, no matter what.

17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?
On the square of a futuristic, abandoned, ruined and bleak city, filled with the remains of towering skyscrapers and vehicles.

18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?
Of course I did! Probably by using some dirty trick, like sniping from a window.

19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?
I rather like a mix of both, actually. They balance each other out.

20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?
Hmmmm, difficult to remember now. In part boredom, in part because it felt like something new. Perhaps I was hoping it'll prompt some introspection so I may learn something.

What traits do you look for in an ideal pet?
Cat-like traits. It has to be furry, reasonably affectionate and seek me out for attention for time to time.

What is the square root of Pi?
Code:
\sqrt(pi)
Strips with Xykon, he's just so deliciously evil. In particular that one where Roy gets pissed off at him for not remembering.... something.

The culmination of the battle for Gobwin Knob.

How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?
I appreciate class and style, therefor my avatar has suitably classy items such as a tophat, monocle and cane, even though I don't actually own any of those items IRL. The bubbles are a reference to Yogh-Sothoth, because I'm a Cthulhu-mythos fan.

Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?
*groan* I can never give an honest answer to this type of questions because I don't know how I'll react when actually faced with a situation like that. I should save the large group of strangers, since that's the logical choice.

Bananers.

What is your least favorite word?
Schaap.

What makes you enthusiastic?
Thinking up a story, expanding the universe of said story, advancing its plotline.

What disappoints you?
Oh, lots of things. Rejection, missing an appointment, failing to publish a paper even though it looked like I was going to at first.

What sound do you love?
Snap. Like you do with your fingers.

What sound do you hate?
The classic nails on a chalkboard is pretty annoying. Any 'whiny' sound as well.

What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
Nuclear physicist. Working on cold fusion sounds really existing. I'd still be doing research of some sort, though, like I am now. If I had to select something nothing to do with any research whatsoever, I'd try being a medical doctor.

What profession would you not like to participate in?
[/QUOTE]

Being a lawyer or judge.

What do you like to collect?
I don't do any collecting anymore. It just takes up a lot of space, but I used to collect little statues of cats. I still have a little black statue of cat, worked in Irish turf.

How many avatars do you have?
Five. Two made by Herpestidae and three by Savannah.

Are you ever coming to GenCon?
Probably not. It's way over in the States whilst I'm in Europe and I never go to conventions anyway.

Blue Ghost's questions
Spoiler

Originally Posted by Blue Ghost

It's alright. Not quite where I'd like to be, but I feel calm and collected. I have peace of mind and I suppose that's the most important thing.

Favorite color?
Dark red.

Favorite fruit?
Strawberries.

Favorite ice cream?
Chocolate flavoured.

Hmm, that might very well depend on my mood. Argh, I don't know! I haven't selected one (yet). Maybe I should.

Let's just go with the lower left quadrant. Mostly lawful neutral, but true neutral and lawful evil are (at times) also applicable.

What is your Magic: The Gathering color?
White, because it stands for law, order and protection.

What is the meaning of life?
To crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of their women.

Love?
An integral part of life and being human. Once I believed being devoid of emotion, being as cold and logical as a machine, was a virtue, but now living a life without love seems like such a terrible thing. There are many different kinds of love of course. I would not like to live my life without it, although at times it still seems forever beyond my grasp.

Friendship?
This is essentially a subset of love, a non-romantic kind. The same as the above answer, really. Although we are all autonomous organisms, capable of functioning on their own, man is also a social animal. Whilst strength as an individual is admirable, we are often stronger when we have others to rely upon.

Freedom?
Important to a degree and again there are different kinds of freedom. No one can (or should) be completely free of all ideals and responsibilities or be so free as to do whatever you want without regard for others. However, everyone should be free to live their life as they see fit and those who seek to oppress without good reason should be ashamed of themselves. A good rule of thumb to go by is: "My freedom ends where yours begins".

What is the color of your aura?
Erh, depends on my mood? Probably a bit of a darker colour, though not overly so I reckon.

What does your essence taste like?
*bites self* Kind of coppery.

Water.

Who would you ask to the next Playground Prom, if we had one?

Are you part of any other online communities?
Yes.

What fictional character do you most identify with?
Coyote Starrk, from Bleach.

Socks: Yes or no?
Yes.

What’s your cutie mark and its significance?
A my little pony reference, right? I'd say the diamonds. They appear colder and calmer than the others and would probably fit my subdued nature well. I also admire their resilience.

Do you know any Playgrounders in real life?
I met a few of them during a Dutch meet-up once. Other than that there's one person I know who is/was (or so I was told) also a Playgrounder.

What is the highest compliment you have ever received?
You're awesome!

What is the highest compliment you can imagine receiving?
You're awesome!

What do you want to be when you grow up?
A scientist. Actually, I suppose I already am.

A handshake for relative strangers, hugs for close friends.

Your favorite way of saying goodbye?
Exact same as the greeting.

It's just a random word. I almost selected 'chair' as username.

Why are you in the Playground?
Well, initially I came here seeking advice on serious matters. Since then I've stayed, both to ocassionally provide advice to others as well as for general fun. It's nice to part of this little community. It's a very friendly place.

Uhm...this is going to be awkward. Yes, but I was about seven or eight, so I'm not actually sure it counts as a real crush. Who? Erm.... *mumbles*mrspockfromstartrek*mumbles*.
2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?
I'm not afraid to put everything in discussion and change my perspective on things.
3. Roses or orchids?
Freesias. The yellow ones.
4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?
The people I love. Also, wanting to know what's next.
5. How did you get to be so awesome?
I'm not, really. But thanks.
6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?
Still in high school. And now I know (well, not really, but I can find out easily) the winning numbers of a decade of lotteries that I really wish I knew back then!
7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?
There is one person whom I already decided to spend my life with, so it would be him.
8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?
Sophie Scholl. Because, really? Kudos, ma’am.
9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?
Having been a decent human being.
10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)

The power of FRIENDSHIP! Friendship with a powerful superhero who will kick his behind while I take no risks, of course.
12. Beards or babies?
Gaah! NEITHER!!
13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?
Several, I think. Unfortunately, when I write or speak in English, this tends to be accidental most of the time.
14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?
More of less full of whilo. Which is a sauce like chili, but more spicy.
15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?
I don't do schmaltzy, sorry. But this gets stuck in my head whenever I hear it:

Can't even shout,
can't even cry
The Gentlemen are coming by.
Looking in windows,
knocking on doors,
They need to take seven and they might take yours.
Can't call to mom,
can't say a word,
You're gonna die screaming but you won't be heard.
16. Favorite mythological monster?
Does Nyarlatothep count? Nyarlathotep! Otherwise, gorgons!

In the town square, at midday. Bring a gun

19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?
A bit of this and a bit of that.
20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?
It seems like a lot of fun.

They have to find me first. Also, NEVER!

Shotgun. It makes a satisfying noise when it’s recharged.

COFFEE! Also, ice creams. Fine, also also, we have a great history.
Have you been to the Vatican?
Yup. Strictly as a tourist, though.
What is one place you wish to visit?
Scotland. Norway. Japan….pretty much anywhere where I haven’t already been and the climate isn’t too hot. I’ll get to see all the world, eventually. One country at a time.

Favorite color?
Blue
Favorite fruit?
Cherries! You were expecting strawberries, weren’t you?
Favorite ice cream?
Chocolate, of course.
I don’t have one. I should really get one, now that I think about it. It’s classy
Hmm…I’m too lawful good for my tastes. I’d very much like to be more chaotic.

I really, really have no idea. My knowledge of Magic: The Gathering is severely lacking.
What is the meaning of life?
Life itself, I suppose.

Do I have to get sappy? I don’t want to get sappy. It ruins my image.
Friendship?
Same as above.
Freedom?
Something worth acquiring and protecting at all costs.

Amaranthine. There, that should puzzle 90% of the male population.
What does your essence taste like?
Chicken.
Technetium!
Who would you ask to the next Playground Prom, if we had one?
I’d say Snow Leopard, but that would be cheating… since he is my fiancé and all. Besides, I’m old-fashioned. I like to be asked out.
Are you part of any other online communities?
Not to the extent I am here.
What fictional character do you most identify with?
The comic relief.
Socks: Yes or no?
YUP! Now pantyhoses: Yes or no, would have been a resounding NO!

The aforementioned Snow Leopard. Unfortunately no others.

The one above was pretty high.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
AN ASTRONAUT! Uhm….wait, I’m grown up. So… AN ASTRONAUT!
Ciao!
Your favorite way of saying goodbye?
Hug people.

Well, it was winter, and since I have an awesome boyfriend he had just brought me strawberries and champagne. So, strawberries.
Why are you in the Playground?
In the beginning, for the play by posts. Now, also for the great people here!
