Ask @laviecestmoi:

what's something that people expect you to like but you actually don't? can be a series, an artist, an invading extraterrestrial armada come to snuff all life from our solar system, a kind of cupcake, whatever.

Game of Thrones, both book and movie. You think it'd be right up my alley, being High Fantasy and all, but I can't stand reading/watching it because of my tendency to get emotionally involved.

Who among your friends in particular do you, secretly or not, think will do big BIG things in the future?

In no particular order: Belay (will either be a chef at some big hotel or cook for one of the world's royals), Iani (can't tie that girl down to one thing coz man, is she talented in many things), Cedric (already making his way up as a writer), AJ (once he finds his footing, he'll make waves in whatever).

If you were a cloud what cloud would you be? Nimbus? Cirrus? Cumulus? Stratus? Or a hybrid of some sort? ;) What do you think this says about you?

What an interesting question. I guess cirrocumulus--mixes the fluffiness of cumulus and the feathery qualities of cirrus. I like seeing shapes in clouds, but I like watching those clouds go by, too. They have this rhythmic irregularity to their shape that is pleasing to my eyes and calms me down somehow. I don't mind at all that they signal rain in a few hours.
I guess that means I'm a dreamer and I look for beauty everywhere, ̶t̶̶o̶ ̶p̶̶u̶̶l̶̶l̶ ̶a̶̶n̶ ̶a̶̶n̶̶s̶̶w̶̶e̶̶r̶ ̶f̶̶r̶̶o̶̶m̶ ̶o̶̶u̶̶t̶ ̶o̶̶f̶ ̶m̶̶y̶ ̶a̶̶s̶̶s̶̶.̶

What concerns take up a lot of your writing these days? :)

Lately, I've been drawn to experiments in form, to the idea of finding even a modicum of humanity in one's enemies, to making hard decisions, and lampooning less-than-ideal societal norms. But I'm still into mythology and folklore, and I look forward to turning tropes on their heads. :D
