Age: 17 (just)
Hobbies: Reading, drawing, logic puzzles, composing, playing four instruments, video games
Likes: Learning things, improving myself, deep philosophical thought, winning, science fiction, elaborate theories, forming strategies, making long lists, unnerving myself, correcting other people and generally being obnoxious, adrenaline rushes, metal (music), classical music, some jazz, being a know-it-all in somewhat specific areas, arguing, making public speeches, being in control, having my achievements praised, being alone, finding out how things work and improving on them
Dislikes: Idiots, small talk, most modern pop music, bad grammar, bad spelling, small-minded people, the idea of romance (look, I'm still a child at heart!), pointless destruction of significant things, being wrong, one of my interests becoming mainstream, the education system, arguments based on emotion, failure, indecisiveness
Fears: Spiders, death, failure and having children. :D
Describe yourself in three words: Better than you. XD
Fly a little higher…
Strong points: I'm generally high-performing academically (at least in school) and a good problem-solver. I also find it easy to understand abstract theories. It's quite hard to get me to show strong negative emotions. I'm very loyal to those I'm close to - and, I like to think, pretty entertaining in an offbeat kind of way. I don't think I've ever really grown up. I'm very enthusiastic about new things and experiences. I'm constructing really disjointed sentences. Er, I don't mind making fun of myself (as long as nobody else does!) and am not afraid to deviate from the general consensus - in fact, I thrive on individualism. I also try my best to live up to expectations - I see doing anything by half-measures as failure. (I once ended up staying behind at school for two hours because I, and some others, had cleaning duty for our common room. Everyone else left after about 5 minutes, but I was so determined to do a good job of it that I actually borrowed a cleaning lady's equipment for a while.)
Weak points: I don't think I have any empathy/sympathy at all. I can be blunt. I can't back down from an argument. I'm very shy in (purely) social situations, which frustrates other people as well as myself - I usually end up staying close to people I already know (I might come across as a bit needy in this respect) or going into Thinking Mode and staring at something, which apparently attracts people who think I'm lonely. I also apparently sound permanently annoyed or stuck-up, which doesn't really help. Furthermore, I've got a completely messed-up sense of humour which only a few people really 'get'. I think people have to try very hard to get to know me, as I've got a very thick 'shell' which conceals a great many things - emotional or otherwise.
Because I spend most of my time thinking about things instead of saying them, I'm not half as spontaneous as I'd like to be. This can be really detrimental in any sort of formal debate. My biggest weakness, however, would be my chronic laziness. This is why I had to add the bracketed part to my academic performance: I can work extremely efficiently in class, but get too easily distracted by interesting things whilst doing homework (interesting: e.g. not tedious, repetitive schoolwork!). I have no tolerance for repetition. Oh yeah, and I'm completely egocentric.
Favorite colors?: Black, grey, dark red and dark blue.
What were/are your three favorite subjects in school?: Physics, History and Music (because we don't do anything).
What era or recent decade would you fancy yourself living in?: Clearly the '80s.
How would most people describe you?: Quiet and/or intelligent.
Would you describe yourself the same way? Why or why not?: Well, it's true on the most basic level.
If you could have dinner with anyone of your choosing, dead or alive, who would it be?: I'm really tempted to say the late Denis D'Amour of the band Voivod at this point. I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to carry on a conversation with an influential thinker.
What is your favorite quote, and why?: "What doesn't kill me makes me stronger," because I share the belief.
Would you honestly risk your own life to save a complete stranger?: No.
When confronted with your doppelganger from another universe, how do you convince those around you that you are the original?: Appeal to them with facts that my double couldn't know. If that didn't work, I'd have both of us undertake an examination at the cellular level. If my knowledge of technobabble is correct, there could be a slight difference in our ages/anything else (depending on the method of travel from the other universe and whether it was instantaneous). Alternatively, I could attempt to record some sort of confession during a private conversation. I expect one of these choices would make more sense depending on the situation.
When spending the evening with your significant other, is your communicator on, or off?: On. Turning it off could potentially kill me.
Someone is threatening to harm your best friend with a weapon. How do you diffuse (or escalate) the situation?: I'm not sure if I'm a coward or not. I'd probably end up trying to incapacitate the person whilst they were concentrating on threatening... or running away. D:
The current away team has been taken hostage and their communicators are not working. What do you do to try to rescue them?: Again, this is going to depend on the situation. ...It'd probably revolve around my making threats based on the ship's offensive capabilities. No, wait, that'd put the away team in danger as well and I wouldn't gain anything from it. Er, I'd really have to base it around the situation and what I knew of my adversary. I might have to get information first as well.
Star Trek IX.
Which character do you relate to the most, and why?: Maybe Spock (lack of social skills/repressed emotions ftw). He also has the same trouble with identity that I do (I'm also mixed-race, although not mixed-species!). Then again, Chekov's over-enthusiasm also reminds me of myself.
What color is your regulation uniform/which Starfleet department do you work for?: I'd love to be in command. I'd probably end up in something else, though.
The bridge is empty and the captain's chair is unoccupied. To sit, or not to sit? If yes, do you spin around?: I'd probably sit back and pretend I was ordering people around. And spin a bit.
The Enterprise has been contaminated by an airborne aphrodisiac. Who do you end up shagging?: I'm really tempted to say Pike, for some reason. Er... Chekov?
Anything Else?: Romulan ale... it's all I ever want!
I hope this's right. I've never made a cut, or posted to a comm, before.
