Do you prefer a [ ]male or [ ] female stamp or [x] don't care?
Do you prefer a [ ] fantasy or [ ] sci-fi stamp or [ ] don't care or [x] both?

getting to know you
Positive characteristics: I'm determined, can be rather ambitious, reasonably intelligent, creative, skilled at knitting and sewing, not a bad artist, a decent cook, honest, and not afraid to be an individual.
Negative characteristics: I don't trust easily, I hold grudges, I'm hopelessly unromantic (don't think this is a negative? Tell that to my mom who wants grandchildren), not a great writer, pessimistic, can be a bit too snarky, and can be kind of hard on myself sometimes though I like to think I've gotten better about this.
Neutral characteristics: I'm quite introverted, fairly androgynous, and... I'm not sure what else would go under neutral.
Quote that describes you: "No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings." -William Blake
Motto that you live by (if different from above): I guess the above would work; I'm not too much of a "live by a motto" person though.

these are a few of my favorite things

Give an explanation if needed.
Color: Olive green, cerulean blue, copper brown, and plum.
Animal: Bunnies, frogs, spiders, butterflies, and cats of all sizes.
Mythical creature: Dragon, phoenix, and cockatrice
Extinct animal: Trilobites, ever since I was a little kid and got to touch the fossil of one at the science museum.
Fantasy novel: the Harry Potter series, the Lord of the Rings series, the Chronicles of Narnia
Sci-fi novel: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Other novel: Nineteen Eighty-Four

Non-fantasy/sci-fi hero and heroine: Dr. Gregory House (House) and Abby Scuito (NCIS)
Song with a sample of lyrics: Got lots of favorite songs, but I'll go with "Raise Your Glass" by P!nk:

So raise your glass if you are wrong
In all the right ways...


this or

that

Are you more –there is room for both; please explain.
Abstract or Concrete: Abstract
Adventurous or Homey: Somewhere in the middle, though tending towards "homey" lately due to lack of time and money to go off somewhere fun.
Agreeable or Distant: Distant
Cheerful or Melancholy: More toward the melancholy end.
Clever or Pretty: I think I'm more clever, though I've been told I'm pretty too. I'd rather be considered clever, though.
Concise or Wordy: It depends on the situation; if I'm in a hurry I'm usually pretty concise, but if I'm not operating under any sort of constraint and I feel up to it, I can be quite verbose.
Creative or Traditional: Creative
Emotional or Logical: Logical
Extroverted or Introverted: Introverted
Fighter or Lover: Fighter but only because I am not a lover.
Flexible or Stubborn: Usually flexible, especially when it comes to ideas/opinions/trying new things, although if I'm trying to work something out or pursuing a goal I can be very stubborn about it.
Free-spirited or Practical: Somewhere in the middle although I lean a bit more towards the free spirit end of things.
Goody-two-shoes or Naughty: More towards the "good" end at work, more towards the "naughty" end when I think I can get away with it.
Helpless or Independent: Independent
Impulsive or Planner: Somewhere in between; I tend to be impulsive when it comes to fun things like "Hey, it's time for a random trip to the mall!" and plan out things relating to my career or other important "grown-up" stuff.
Mental or Physical: Mental
Modest or Vain: Modest
Subdued or Vivacious: Subdued

test me; know me
The follow questions are optional – if you know the answer, please respond. If you are unsure, feel free to leave blank.
What is your Myers-Briggs personality type? Would you agree? ( Test ) INTP, according to several different tests. I think it fits pretty well.
What are your highest intelligences according to <href="http://www.bgfl.org/bgfl/custom/resources_ftp/client_ftp/ks3/ict/multiple_int/questions/choose_lang.cfm">Gardner</a>? Logical, Intrapersonal, and Linguistic.
What is your alignment? Chaotic Neutral (Huh, interesting.)
What is your zodiac symbol? Does it fit you? ( Western / Chinese / Celtic ) Western zodiac I'm Sagittarius, which I don't think suits me very well for the most part; for example I'm not terribly optimistic. ('Though I'm close to the cusp with Scorpio, and that fits me better.) Not giving you my birth year for Chinese, but I'll say I am Reed in Celtic, and that fits me pretty well.
Do you have any siblings? What order are you? I have two half brothers and one whole brother, and I am second youngest.
Would you consider yourself religious or spiritual? A bit more spiritual than religious, although I'm not really either.

would you rather
These are very extreme opposites, meant to be difficult to choose. Pretend you're being forced to decided one or the other.
Sacrifice yourself to save your friends or save them by marrying the villain? I guess marry the villain, since I'd still be alive, and... Can I divorce the villain and take half his stuff? Nah, I'd probably just try to win his trust by being all "HEY I AM YOUR WIFEY NOW" and then take him down from the inside provided I didn't get all Stockholm Syndrome-y and end up liking him.
Fight to the death or have someone else rescue you? Fight to the death. I'm not really the "damsel in distress" type and I hate asking for help.
Live in a land of deadly dinosaurs, atrocious aliens, or mythical monsters? Mythical monsters, because I'm into mythology and folklore.
Wear a crown or corset or combat boots? Or all three? I've already worn a corset and combat boots, so I see no reason why I wouldn't wear all three.
Sneak into the enemy’s lair or break down the front door guns a-blazing? Sneak in and hope to take them by surprise.
Have superpowers and have thousands of enemies or be ordinary and forgettable, but safe? I would presume that the superpowers I have would allow me to defeat the aforementioned "thousands of enemies" if need be, so I'll go with the superpowers. Just don't expect me to go around rescuing everybody who needs it or something.
Live with your loving family, but never leave home or not have anyone close to you, but go on adventures? I don't tend to get close to people easily, family generally being the one exception to this. 'Though if I knew my family was happy even if I wasn't there with them, I'd rather go on adventures.

the hero in all of us
Would you travel in a group or be a loner? What role in the group would you fill? I'd rather be a loner. If I'm not in a group, can I really fill a role in it? Meh, assuming I ''was'' in a group, probably more of a strategic role.
What would be your costume? Something practical yet stylish, like cargo pants or jeans, a tanktop, a jacket (preferably leather), and some kind of shoes that are comfortable and easy to move in (and also red because red shoes are awesome).
What would be your weapon of choice? Magic.
Would you have a sidekick or pet? Probably not a sidekick, maybe a pet though. Possibly some sort of mythical creature if I could tame one well enough.
Any special powers? Well, if my weapon of choice is magic spells, it would stand to reason I'd have magic powers of some sort.
If you could invent any device, what would it be and what would it do? I'd love to have something that would allow me to put people to sleep remotely. A friend has insomnia? Not any more! Someone seems cranky? Maybe they need a nap! Someone's bothering me? Sleepy-time time out!
What sub-genre would you be a part of? (romance/comedy/action…) Action/adventure or Fairytale.
What conflict would you prefer? (man v. man, man v. wild…) Man/woman vs. supernatural beasties.
