So apparently one of the author's I'm following has something of a "meme" that he may or may not have come up with (I checked. He did not. He found it on a friend's DA page). It's not a meme in the literal sense, but it's the word he used so I'm sticking with it. The basic gist of it is that there are 36 questions. Each question must be answered by you... but as your OC. Try to get inside the mind of your OC and answer the way you think they would. So without further ado, here's my entry for the OC Questionnaire. (I kinda like that better than 'meme')
1) What is your name?
Blaze. Should be obvious why.
2) Do you know why you were named that?
Gives you a flat stare before pointing at his hair* Do you not see this shit? My hair is almost literally on fire. Now why don't you continue this questionnaire.
3) Are you single or taken?
Single. Don't know why it matters.
4) Have any abilities or powers?
I'm a demigod son of Vesta, goddess of fire. I can control fire, and eat it like a snack. Funny enough, the intensity of the flames makes the taste vary.
5) Stop being a Mary Sue!
One, not a girl. Two, I could cook you alive, so watch it!
6) What's your eye color?
Don't know. Never bothered to check.
7) How about hair color?
Facepalms* Are you freaking blind and deaf? You have seen it. I have pointed it out that it is almost literally fire. *Glares* Ask me something like that again. I dare you.
8) Have you any family members?
Sighs* Sorta. Not strictly blood related, but I do have this one girl who's kinda like a sister to me. Real sweet girl, though she can be just as hotheaded as me. *Smirks* And that's saying something.
9) How about pets?
None. Though I kinda wish I had a dog... could probably adopt a German Shepard or something if I wanted. You know, that actually sounds like a good idea. I think I'm gonna go do that.
10) Now tell me something you don't like.
Whenever the people with power take advantage of those who don't have any. Makes me sick to see someone pick on others who can't defend themselves. Especially when that someone has legal authority. *shakes head sadly* The Marines used to stand for something. Now? It's just newbies who gained power and decided to lord over everyone else who didn't. Also hate people who pick on me or anyone I can consider close.
11) Do you have any activities/hobbies that you do?
Well, I do own a blacksmith shop. It's relaxing, being able to focus myself on a single objective of forging metals into useful shapes. Swords, axes, spears... even household decoration. You name it, I can probably craft it.
12) Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before?
Oh, plenty. Don't get me wrong, every single one of those I did hurt actually deserved it. And I'm not just talking about 'pirate scum' like most Marines would have you believe. A lot of the Marines are worse than the pirates they hunt. Still, those I have hurt had it coming.
13) Ever... killed anyone before?
Better believe it. Sometimes, the best way to deal with a problem is to stamp it out. If someone's done something that is morally wrong to a very big degree, such as cold blooded murder or rape, then they no longer have the same rights as normal human beings. Meaning they're marked for death.
14) What kind of animal are you?
Oy! Just because I've killed people, it does not make me an animal! I'm doing the world a favor by ridding it of the murderers and the like out there, so I'd appreciate it if you didn't accuse me of being an animal.
15) Name your worst habits.
Shrug* Can't think of too many. Though I do tend to get angry pretty easily. Comes with the territory of being a son of Vesta. My emotions, like fire itself, are nigh untameable.
16) Do you look up to anyone at all?
I wouldn't really say I look up to anyone... maybe Vice Admiral Garp and Fleet Admiral Sengoku. They may have been twisted a bit by the corruption of the Marines, but that doesn't mean they weren't stellar examples of serve and protect when they were in their prime. If I had been able to join back when they were still low in the ranks, I would have felt honored to fight alongside them. Though I do have a healthy respect for anyone who betters their common man. Fisher Tiger, Jinbei, Whitebeard, Red Haired Shanks- they're all men, and even pirates at that, who treat others the way that any normal person would. Oh, and my old man. He's the one who made me want to become a marine in the first place.
17) Are you gay, straight, or bisexual?
Straight. Definitely straight.
18) Do you go to school?
Not anymore. Got my education back during basic training. May not have been the best student, but I at least did well enough.
19) Ever wanna marry and have kids someday?
I don't know. Maybe if I meet the right girl... though that's not exactly high on my list of priorities.
20) Do you have fangirls/fanboys?
Dunno about fangirls, but gods I hope I don't have any fanboys.
21) What are you most afraid of?
Crosses arms* Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
Water splashes right in front of him from the ceiling and he growls slightly pale, his eyes widening in alarm*
22) What do you usually wear?
Eh, what I'm wearing right now, usually. Baggy gray pants with orange trim, red vest with black trim, this weird bone circlet on my head- though mom just says to keep that on- and these bone looking gloves. In all honesty, I wear these gloves so much that it's like they're my actual fingers.
23) What's one food that tempts you?
Hm, not too picky about what I eat... though chimichongas are pretty damn good.
24) Am I annoying you?
A little. Some of the questions are fine, but there have been a few that you managed to push some buttons.
25) Well it's still not over.
Yeah, I kind of figured as much.
26) What class are you? (low class, middle class, high class)
Well... never really considered that. Sure as hell ain't high class. High class is too stuffy for my tastes. Not exactly poor with all the work I do for folks around town, so I do pretty well. If I had to pick, I'd say middle class. Though if you ask the Marines, I don't even exist anywhere on the social ladder.
27) How many friends do you have?
Do business acquaintances count as friends? No? Didn't think they did. Well, if that's the case, I'd say... three.
28) What are your thoughts on pie?
Get rid of it. Preferably by burning it to ashes.
(Apparently there is no question 29)
30) Favorite drink?
I don't really drink. Plays hell with my insides because of what I am.
31) What's your favorite places?
My inner sanctum. Aka inside my forge. It's a nice place to go and relax by myself. Other than that, there's a nice hill outside of town with a single tree. Great place for a nap or hanging out with someone you know.
32) Are you interested in anyone?
33) If you're a girl, what's your cup size? If you're a guy, how big are you?
If I was a girl, I sure as hell wouldn't tell you what size my tits were. As for how big I am? I'm six foot three, at about... 200 pounds, last I checked. And before you say anything, that's all muscle. *Gives you a pointed stare* I can easily chuck you from here to the opposite side of the island, so don't tempt me.
34) Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean?
Neither, you jackass! Does it really look like I'd even want to go near water?!
35) What's your type?
My type? *closes eyes and thinks quietly* I don't really know. I guess just someone who doesn't mind getting dirty, who can kick some major ass when need be, and can handle being in close proximity to me for extended periods of time. Oh, and a sizable bust would help. *Grins lecherously*
36) Camping or indoors?
Indoors. Last time I went camping, I accidentally set the woods on fire. Was able to put it out, but the Marines I was camping with gave me hell about it afterwards... ended up lighting one dude's pants on fire when he tried to take a swing at me. *starts laughing loudly* And boy, you should have seen him go. Ran off like the devil was at his heels.
So there you have it. My OC Questionnaire has been finished. Hope it's enjoyable to read. If not... eh. It's my guy, I enjoyed writing it.
