As asked by wonderful_words
1.) You're writing a romantic tragedy, Seth/Eirika, and of course, in order to that, you have to kill either Seth or Eirika off. Who do you choose to kill, and why?
Seth. Both of them would be equally devastated if the other died, but I think, for Eirika, she still has the emotional support of her twin, Ephraim, and her royal duty to Renais. A long period of mourning, but she might still be able to pull through. For Seth though, I always see his loyalty to be more personal, which is to the twins, and to a larger extent, Eirika herself. If she dies, he has nothing left. I do not mean to say he will become another Orson. I just feel that perhaps he will simply do missions or patrols until he dies. Think along the lines of general Selena.2.) Do you believe that a man and a woman who are physically (or sexually) and mentally attracted to one another can remain just friends in real life?
What, they are not married?!?! Physically and mentally attracted to one another sounds like the perfect lover's material. Or maybe not. Unless by attracted, you mean similiar to what friends may share. Still, I suppose it ~is~ possible, and not just because said man or woman is homosexual. I mean, just on the level of friendship, there ~must~ be some level of attraction on both the physical and/or mental level, yes? One certainly does not feel any repulsiveness. So, the same thing applies, even to the other gender. Sexual attraction could be just something... hormonal? Temporary? And then, there is the case of fidelity. What if said people are already married to others? They would probably remain just friends as well.3.) Let's say your very best friend (male or female) starts to avoid you. Would you have any idea as to what the reason might be? If so, what? If not, would you want to know?
No. So yes, I would like to know.4.) Do you have a fictional "hero"? If so, who and why?
Mmmm. If I have to take one, it is probably... Jason Bourne. From the movie-verse since I have only read a little of the books. His ability to read the situation, sitting in a cafe and knowing how out of the few vehicles parked outside, which one probably has a gun hidden somewhere, the escape routes, the people. His desire to amend his mistakes, to make sure those who wronged him get exposed and not get killed by him simply out of vengeance. And of course, him helping Nicky out in Ultimatum.5.) Are you close to your parents?
Quite. I live with my mother, since my father has to stay in Taiwan. So I am closer to my mom. She can be walking comedy sometimes. 'Oh no, I am always 28.' Well yeah, that makes me.. 1?
And now, off to tuition and then lunch date with mom to celebrate mother's day. Might be a while before I replied to anything.
