Oh, I'd forgotten about this one! I agree, great thread.

EDIT: Sebastian O'Mara speaking.

1. When do you feel truly alone?
I don't.
2. If you swapped bodies with a nearby friend for a day, what would you do?
Honestly? Watch myself go about my day. Anyone who says otherwise are lying.
3. What is your ideal death?
Crossing a road, hit by a trailer I didn't see coming - the grin on my face still lingering when I'm dead less than a second later.
4. Would you rather be in a high pressure business meeting or a martial arts tournament and why?
High pressure business meeting. I don't know martial arts.
5. Wool or cotton socks, and why?
Cotton. Wool is all itchy.

New questions:
Do you often think about the future of humankind?
Do you consider options and outcomes, or do you act before thinking?
I ask you to come to a party, what do you answer?
Marriage: A sacred institution, or just an old-fashioned lifestyle-choice that's bound to end in divorce or mariticide?
Who do you call when you're in trouble or sad, and why?

1. What motivates you to get out of bed each day? What the hell do you mean what motives me? I do whatever I freaking want.


2. Are you married, or have any love interests? Nah. No woman has ever been able to put up with me long enough. Don't know why though. *Shrugs* Its their problem, not mine.

3. What is your worst fear? Having to get a job.


4. What is your favorite memory? The day I won my settlement with Microsoft.


5. What is your greatest weakness? Weakness...HA! That's a good one.

I'll just skip bookmasta's, seeing as he answered the first posters questions without any new questions for dear old me.

Do you often think about the future of humankind? Of humankind? Nah, not really. Not high up there on my to-do list
Do you consider options and outcomes, or do you act before thinking? I think all the time. I need to hit accurate every time, but that doesn't really cover my foresight, which I lack in
I ask you to come to a party, what do you answer? Sure. I'll be watching from the shadows
Marriage: A sacred institution, or just an old-fashioned lifestyle-choice that's bound to end in divorce or mariticide? Whoa! I'm too young of a man to think about stuff like that. Anyway, a woman would need to see my face to marry me first, doncha think? That doesn't really answer your question, though...
Who do you call when you're in trouble or sad, and why? Randy, even though I hate to say it. He's been there for me in the rough times. He's good at deflecting blows.

To YOU:
1)Where were you, and what were you doing when you had you're first ever crush?

2) Animals are crazy beings... what would you create a hybrid of, and why?

3) When you see that number three what do you characterize it as?

4) I had a fish once. what do you think I did with it?

5)What would the superb ideal human race look like, act like, ability be, ect, ect....?

Where were you and what were you doing when you had your first ever crush?
My first crush was in grade school, I think I was seven. It was this little girl named Lucy. She had the prettiest blonde curls and she stuck her tongue out at me every time I hit her with a wad of paper. I think the teacher said something about this is why boys and girls weren't supposed to be taught in the same classroom one time when she caught me passing a note that said: Do you like me? Check yes no.

Animals are crazy beings... what would you create a hybrid of, and why?
Well hybrids are pure science fiction. I never was big on science fiction. H.G. Well might fascinate some, but I think he's got just a little too much imagination. I don't really like cats but I love dogs if that answers your question.

When you see that number three what to you characterize it as?
These questions keep getting stranger and stranger. It looks like a number to me. My buddy Red might say it was a backwards e, though. He's got a little more imagination than me.

I had a fish once, what do you think I did with it?
I think you probably set it free in the ocean because it seems to me that you're in to all that kind of stuff from these crazy questions. Ironic part is, that after you set it free it was probably eaten by a larger fish.

What would the superb ideal human race look like, act like, ability be, etc, etc...?
Okay, now you're sounding exactly like those Nazis were over here trying to beat. There is no ideal human race. Humanity is supposed to be varied. I don't agree with this idea of a segregated army either. If they're going to fight with us, the least we can do is to treat them as equals.

1) Where did you grow up?

2) Any interesting family anecdotes?

3) If your best same sex friend told you he/she liked you, what would you think?

4) Did you ever wish you could have super powers like a comic book hero?

5) What do you see happening in the future?

This one is going to be easy...now time for the answers.

1). How's the shoulder?

Healed, or at least that's the word I would use to your understanding. Re-made might be better, considering.

2). Standing on the wall, watching love fade, was it anger, disgust or simply relief?

At that defining moment, I felt nothing at all. I could see her yelling. I could hear the Fusiliers firing and reloading. I even lingered a moment just to make sure.

3). Do you notice any added dexterity?

Oh my, yes! I can twist off any jar lid in New Jerusalem!

4). How exciting are thermals?

It's peaceful. I feel motionless, like Eden rotates beneath me.

5). That defining moment in the vortex, when evil finally loses its grasp, can you describe the warmth?

No, I cannot. It was like touching the very edges of Creation...

Gonna keep this one rolling :D

1) Where did you grow up?
"A deep space mining ship, with about thirty other families. Very cramped, but life as a spacer always is..."

2) Any interesting family anecdotes?
"Sure, one time I snuck off to the cargo hold with Jessica Jenkins from B-deck when we were thirteen and we started making out. Little did we know, mining operations were about to begin and the drones started piling ore onto us in the hold. I broke a leg, she broke three ribs and we both got talkings-to. Ah, youth."

3) If your best same sex friend told you he/she liked you, what would you think?
"I'd say it's time for you to stop getting naked on the bridge, then. He does that enough already, liking me might make it worse."

4) Did you ever wish you could have super powers like a comic book hero?
"It'd be nice to be able to breathe in space."

5) What do you see happening in the future?
"Not much, just more salvaging and spacing."

Next questions:
1) What's the hardest moment in your life?
2) What's the one thing that you hate doing every time you have to do it?
3) Now the opposite, what's the greatest moment in your life?
4) What's the one thing you love to do every time you have a chance to do it?
5) Do you have a mentor or someone who you look(ed) up to? Why?

3. What is your worst fear?
4. What is your favorite memory?
5. What is your greatest weakness?

I'm really bored right now, and unable to really do anything else, so I'm resurrecting this thread. I'm going to restart with the first five questions that J gave us, and go from there! That's right. I'm posting twice. DEAL WITH IT. #BURN

1. "Wow, that's a deep question... I don't know. I like life? The real issue is getting me to sleep. I usually stay up on the bridge all night until that pesky AI turns off the oxygen or something to make me go to bed."

2. "Well... that's kinda complicated. I guess I'm engaged. Maybe? She says we're married, but alien weddings are still a little odd to me. Anyway, I'm definitely in love, that's for sure. As for the details... well it doesn't really matter when you're a few hundred light years from any government, right?"

3. "Getting personal aren't we? I guess... if I had to pick... and if you tell anyone, I'm going to end you... but I'm not too good in the dark. I know, I know, a spacer who's afraid of the dark?! Let alone a 38 year old afraid of the dar--just stoppit. I can handle it I just... sometimes need a minute."

4. "Do sex memories count? Oh, okay... uhm, yeah alright I suppose my greatest memory is when I first got my ship. I remember walking through the airlock for the first time and running my hand along the wall of the interior and just feeling that... connection. You know?"

5. "Oh, I'm a really bad pilot. Okay, not that bad, but my crew likes to joke about it enough that makes me doubt my own skill there. They might be right, I do bump into things a lot when I fly. But my greatest weakness, like my weak point? I tend to get pretty crazy when people try to harm my crew. Kick my ass? Fine, no big deal. Hurt my computer specialist? You're going down."

And I'll keep my previous 5 for the next player because I can!

1) What's the hardest moment in your life?
2) What's the one thing that you hate doing every time you have to do it?
3) Now the opposite, what's the greatest moment in your life?
4) What's the one thing you love to do every time you have a chance to do it?

1) What's the hardest moment in your life?
Realizing I can't spend forever with Molly, that I'm mortal, not invincible.

2) What's the one thing that you hate doing every time you have to do it?
Interacting with Dr. Henry. Nothing makes you feel more inadequate than a condescending doctor pointing out all of your earthly human flaws.

3) Now the opposite, what's the greatest moment in your life?
Finding out I'm a father, that I created life. And not by cloning, mind you. Just the idea that I can contribute something to this work other than work makes me feel pretty human. Writing music's a close second.

4) What's the one thing you love to do every time you have a chance to do it?
That I can say here? I suppose playing music.

5) Do you have a mentor or someone who you look(ed) up to? Why?
Yeah, there was this guy named Izzy. Crazy old coot, if you ask me, not all there or in one piece, but the way that he approached everything with this obtuse happiness kind of inspired me to become who I am. I think he made the whole being mortal thing more acceptable, making me live every day instead of assuming there was a tomorrow.

Got a new MC for a new novel I'm working on. It came from one of those lightning inspiration moments so getting into the head of my MC will be good...

1) Sure, yeah. Not much else to do on this ship, but eat, sleep, watch, and exercise.
2) Right now? I guess just serve my time on this ship, get back to the core planets, find some work with one of the syndicates maybe? Right now, all I have is time, so I guess I can think of some lofty goal at some point.
3) Weirdest? I don't really know. I guess it's kinda weird now, standing in orbit over an underdeveloped planet, watching some yokels from the iron age who have no idea I'm up here watching them. They don't even have an idea of space travel or alien races, I bet. Kinda makes me think, you know?
4) Never being with a woman again. I mean, a lot can happen in five years, and there's no viable women in this end of space, let me tell you.
5) I got caught because I trusted the wrong guy. Guess I'm gullible, or at least was. Once bitten, as they say...

Next Questions!
1) Ever committed a crime? If so, tell us about it, if not, were you ever tempted?
2) Where do you see yourself in ten years?
3) Tell us what your childhood was like in one sentence.
4) Fight, flight, or other?
5) What are you wearing right now?

1) Ever committed a crime? If so, tell us about it, if not, were you ever tempted?
Does initiating the apocalypse count as a crime?

2) Where do you see yourself in ten years?
I see myself as really tiny space dust floating around, somehow congealing into the pockets of matter that eventually become clouds.

3) Tell us what your childhood was like in one sentence.
I was in a bubble.

4) Fight, flight, or other?
I'd rather fly, but for some stupid reason I always end up fighting.

5) What are you wearing right now?
A hospital gown underneath a zero-g spacesuit.

NEXT QUESTION!
1) You've just won the lottery, what do you buy first?
2) The end of the world is fast approaching, who do you want to spend your last moments with?
3) You are required to face your greatest fear before you can drink from the Holy Grail. Devise the test to face it.
4) The oxygen is running out in your compartment. You have time for a few last words. What are they?
5) You are allowed to pick one superpower. What is it and why?

5) You are allowed to pick one superpower. What is it and why?

1) Probably a house, somewhere on one of the border planets. And then, I'd just live off the winnings in peace.
2) Her. I don't really know her name, but I see her all the time in the scanner. Telsworth says I don't have a chance of ever meeting her, but yeah... I'd want it to be with her. Just kinda say hi, if I can finish learning her language.
3) I think... yeah, it'd probably be those bug-guys. They're not right. Probably be between me and that grail, and I'm unarmed. That'd be a tough one.
4) "Give me your damn oxygen tank!"
5) Breathing in space. That way, I could survive number 4.

Next questions!

1) Would you rather spend an evening with your worst enemy without being allowed to harm one another, or a whole two weeks over the holidays with your family? Why?
2) Wealth or women (or men), what would you pick knowing the other will be off limits?
3) Take us on your dream vacation.
4) What's the one tool you cannot live without?
5) Describe your family.

"Give me your oxygen tank!" hehe!

Meg is a work-in-progress; as are her story and friends, but I'm gonna give her a shot at this.

1) Would you rather spend an evening with your worst enemy without being allowed to harm one another, or a whole two weeks over the holidays with your family? Why?

I've spent all my life with the enemy, although they didn't realize it (nor did I til recently), and none of it with my family. Not my real family any way. I have guardians who have protected me and taught us the morals of my people.

2) Wealth or women (or men), what would you pick knowing the other will be off limits?

Money is worthless and humans don't hold my attention except as a potential threat. Oh, they're not all bad, but I just want to go home! And some humans, apparently, are holding it hostage and have been for years. Meeting a brave, strong, handsome stallion might be wonderful one day. But first, there is work to be done. My friends and I must reclaim our world.

3) Take us on your dream vacation.

Who can think of vacation hot spots when they find out their world, their true home, is being held hostage? Going home, being free to be me, being able to fly over and see our world renewed- that's all I want right now!

4) What's the one tool you cannot live without?

My eyes. My race is known for having sharp sight, eagle eyes. Struck blind, I will never be able to see my home or go flying along the beauty that I've always heard it is. (They just told me the world is real and I'm a part of it, but in a way, I've always known about it. Because they taught us about our world through stories. The way humans teach their youngest through books.)

5) Describe your family.

Ask me again after I've met them. As for the family I was raised with, well that's kind of complicated. You can look at it as a traditional family- mother, father, siblings, and what not. OR you can look at it as my friends are all part of a bigger family. Each of us is from a different culture, but all of us make each other whole. We are each of a different race and, therefore, brought up seperately to learn the ways of our own people. But we've stayed close throughout the years, live in the same community, and met every week to keep our family bonds strong. Although we didn't begin to understand until recently why, that time together has always been impressed upon us as important family time.

What is your greatest principle in life? How would you respond if it was threatened?
Principle in life...? Is that something I was supposed to be taught? Eh... I like living, that's kinda a principle... maybe, and if that was threatened, well, then I'd defend myself properly

What's your favorite animal, whether real or fantasy/myth?
Ahha! More a question up my alley! I like wolves. There fluffy, adorable little bodies bounding and pouncing, ready to strike and kill without an early notice... the icon for teams and friendship... and survival

What's your favorite past time?
Like in decade, century, fashion wise, knowledge wise, what we talking about here? Dark ages, those dragons and castles.

Who's your best friend(s) in the whole wide world? Why?
The gang I stuck with. I like em a lot, even those dead. They fight with me, against the raging odds.

Potato couch or wilderness survivalist?
Now my potatoing days are up and I must muster up some survival instincts in these dastardly times

What is your fighting style in depth?

Fighting style? I'm a 23 year old drug dealer in California not a UFC fighter... I dunno last time I fought I was a little drunk and I think my method was to make a fist and aim for the head (I got my ass kicked, I probably could use a new fighting style).

How would you kill your nemesis?

This might not be as confrontational as you like but honestly I'd probably try to taint their foods with increasing levels of heavy metal. They would originally think they were just sick, and by the time they sought medical attention it would be too late. Furthermore it would be very hard to link it back to me. Maybe that is my fighting style? Fight in such a way that makes your enemy unaware of your existence.

Define the skeletons in your closet-

This could be a long list so I will try to keep it short. First off I suffer from a rare form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and also have general depression. I escaped from a mental hospital after my asshole psychiatrist tried to detain me with a 5150 (he thought I was suicidal). Oh and I embezzled 10 grand from my father. And my profession of choice is illegal.

How would you rather look?
Wishing for looks seems stupid, I have just about every neurosis you can name but have never been insecure about my body. I fully understand my hard life style is aging me more quickly and that I look 30 something although I am 23 but would never consider plastic surgery. A little more skin pigment might be nice or cut down on the sunscreen budget.

Who's your role model?
Bradley from Sublime, and Nikola Tesla.

Answers are from Roman Tevenkor:

If y
ou could have any power in the world, what would it be? - Hmm....maybe...being able to resurrect people. Mother. Father. Nadya. My brothers-in-arms.

What are your thoughts on love? - Seems like love happens, and then **** happens.


What color scheme would you pick for yourself? - Maybe red and gold like the Dominion's colors.


Do you believe power corrupts? It can, I believe. It might not be an absolute cause of corruption though.


Are you in love? No. I've made my effort, and the fruit of my labor...*he starts becoming emotional*...was taken from me. I guess...I'll just hope something...comes my way. Something virtuously irresistible.
