GREETINGS LORDS, LADIES, AND MENTALLY INSANE.
Yes, I do live. I have done a lot of that as of late.
I begin with an apology due to the INCREDIBLE lack of activity these past weeks! The responsibilities of University decided to queue up and give my timetable a good bashing about leaving me with about.... 2 1/2 minutes of freedom... for sleep!
Needless to say, these past couple of weeks have been an extremely productive couple of weeks, and I have successfully completed two major coursework pieces and am now moving onto the first BIIIIIIIIIIIIIG project of the year!
I will be constructing a 1:40 scale F-15 Strike Eagle and painting it with Generation 1 Starscream's colours from the original Transformers cartoons. OF COURSE I SHALL POST IMAGES WHEN IT IS DONE. I have 8 weeks to complete this task... *gulps* wish me luck!
Anyway, I digress. LETS GET ON WITH THE MAIN JUICY BIT OF THIS JOURNAL.
I'VE BEEN TAGGED BY THREE WONDROUS PEOPLE (the oldest of which is over 3 months old o_o)

That said, I think it would be that thing I did a while ago that involved 3 jelly babies, a bottle of cider and a group of amateur magicians.

I freaking LOVE swimming. BUT, the last time I actually DID any swimming is now over 1 1/2 years ago.

10. Do you think a dragon can be the main character in a story and a hero? If so is having a dragon as a main character, make him or her too powerful? I know a dragon can be a main character in a story and not be too powerful. What are your thoughts on it though?
Very good question. I have a not so good answer but here it is anyway:
I personally like it when a dragon has a protagonist role! It takes the age-old image of the dragon as a symbol of evil and turning it upon its head.
Making a protagonist character that is over-powered is quite frankly unrealistic, ridiculous and boring. They'll just blunder their way through until they easily succeed. Not only is this no fun, but it is also uninteresting. You KNOW that they will succeed no matter what.
11. What are some good books on learning to draw or write a story?
ARGH ANOTHER DIFFICULT QUESTION AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
I do know that Dracopedia is an INCREDIBLE series to help you learn and draw different species of dragon, and just buy dragon art books whenever and wherever you can! As for writing, you just got to do a HELL OF A LOT of reading.
12. What do you think of dragons being able to take on a human form or another form?
Well, I have to think about this logically. If a dragon can shapeshift, it can have the ability to hide effectively, and get close to prey if necessary. QUESTIONS FROM 1) what do you think of thor as a woman now??
Good god what have you done.
2)do you realize, deep down inside your heart....that im batman!?? All too well, Bruce.

4) AMG BEN AFFLECK IS BATMAN??? WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS??
5) harry osborn invites you for a cup of coffee, suddenly Andrew from chronicle appears. you just happen to be the doctor from doctor who. what do you decide to do??
Have a polite cup of tea, of course. And make random comments. And offer the pair of them Jelly Babies.
6) DO YOU LUV LOKI??
EW NO THAT'S LIKE
7) have you seen guardians of the galaxy, IF YOU HAVEN'T YOU SHOULD, AND YOU BETTER HAVE SEEN THE AMAZING SPIDER MAN 2 BY NOW.
*looks up at the facts I put earlier*
*clears throat and shifts feet uncomfortably*
BUT I HAVE SEEN TASM2 OKAY PLEASE DON'T KILL ME I HAVE SO MUCH TO LIVE FOR8) who is your alter ego?? (marvel or dc, i dont care)
I am my alter ego.
9) if you could be your oc, who would you be?
My oc, of course.

All manner of things.
