Do you think people have a predetermined fate?

What would you do if you could travel though time?

If you could fly, what would you do?

"I don't have anything against you, but I hope you're ready to die a dog's death!
Oh, don't worry, that cat will carry off your body, so you'll be able to live in our place!"

Typical Jana schedule?

Morning person or night owl? Or, both?

You wake one morning to find a TARDIS in your house! Where and when in space and time do you decide to go and why?

What would you name your autobiography?
I wake up at around 10 now, do silly things online for most of the day, and go to bed at around 2. :P
On a day that I actually have plans, I wake up whenever is appropriate and adjust as such... Kind of difficult to give a concrete schedule when I don't have any hard-set things to do like work and school right now.

I'm not really a morning person, but I don't like to stay up too late either... I think I have an easier time staying up late than waking up early, though!

That's the Dr. Who thing, right? Assuming it is what I think it is, I'd go to 1800s London where I could blend in and start a new life.

Bullshit.

If I could go anywhere/time, I think I'd like to go to the non-specific times before humans were around and enjoy the quiet.

I would zip around where no one would see me! Maybe in the non-specific time periods before humans were around?

What is your favourite magical girl series?

Why are you interested in Rikako?

Madoka, by sheer virtue of me never having watched any other magical girl shows. I don't think any of them would really interest me.
EDIT: Man, it's been years so I've forgotten a lot about them, but I did read almost all of the Sailor Moon manga in middle school, and I did watch Cardcaptors (loldub). I certainly did like Cardcaptor Sakura... I'm gonna have to find the manga and read it now, thanks. :3

I like that Rikako is already an accomplished magician who has chosen to instead study something the no one in Gensokyo was even willing to consider worth studying. It's clear that she is a powerful magician in her own right (her bomb, Magical Science, seems to be implied to be a combination of her own magic and some kind of science... Perhaps a literal bomb?), but she's also accomplished enough as a scientist to be using a jetpack, homing gears, and her small rocket bullets.
Don't get me wrong, I certainly don't dislike Yumemi! Her willingness to take home magicians as guinea pigs isn't exactly an endearing trait though.

If you were to contract with Kyubey (because that's the smart thing to do), what would you wish for?

If you could have any supernatural ability, what would you want?

If the Jana sandwich became a youkai, what would it's danmaku look like?

UNLIMITED POWER I mean I guess that since selfish and petty wishes work best in that series, I'd ask to be rid of all my body hair forever.

UNLIMITED POWER I mean something neat like energy manipulating? The way Okuu does it is waaaay far-fetched, but hella cool.

Beats me?

I hadn't even thought of it like that...I'd love to go to where his victims were killed and challenge him to a knife fight!

Magical hairless girl Jana vs. Shim: who wins?

Magical hairless girl Jana vs. the Jana Sandwich youkai: who wins?

What kind of power would wishing for hairlessness grant, anyway?

I eat my sandwich. I eat it up.

Beats me. Hopefully one that lets me beat witches with my bare hands!

Ask me more stuff! Here's one for you: If it were up to you, what kind of food would Cooking Jana make you tonight?

Peruvian Steak Salad.  Get to it.

Is Sana just a useless hat, good only for his haberdasher appeal?

Any kind of seafood you can think of!

Are you sad that your thread ends today?

If you acquired UNLIMITED POWER, what would you do with it?

What's the biggest thing you have ever seen up close?

Do you think there's life out past our solar system?

If you encounter a fork in the road, what do you do?

Margarita empanadas~ <3

How good are you at the Touhou games?

If you could change any one historical event to have the outcome of your choice, what would it be?

What one aspect of Mexico would you like to see changed? (political, ideological, economic, social, you name it.)

South American Style chicken cooked over charcoal.

How should I spice my rice pilaf if I'm making it with chicken stock and chicken chucks?

Steak salads are great! Chicken salads too.

Sana confers whatever stat bonuses he wants. :3

We don't have much seafood around here, so all I know is baked salmon. ^^;

I have about 10 more hours, since I started late. I guess I am kind of sad to have gotten so many questions and answers in the first day and so few for the rest of the week though.

I would want there to be no more poverty.

What's the biggest thing you have ever seen up close?

The Sears Tower in the city, I guess! They call it the Willis Tower now though.

Sure! What makes us so special, anyway?

I should already know where I am going, so there's not much to do but keep going.

That sounds yummy!

I can clear most of them on easy, but I've only beaten IN and MoF on Normal.

I would have the Mongol hordes not go back to Mongolia after the death of Kublai Khan, and instead continue through Europe. For curiosity's sake.

No more drugs!

Which South American? I've had Brazilian, but I've never made it.

I don't know much about spices since I'm a poverty-cook. A little black pepper doesn't hurt though. And depending on how you make the chicken, you may want a pinch of salt on that.

That tinga stuff you were talking about the other day.

What's the breakfast of Janpions?

That's actually really easy to make, if I prepare the night before! We don't use spicy stuff at my house though.

Everyone should have the opportunity to eat real Mexican rice, beans, and beef. It's a very simple and cheap meal, but there aren't really many places in the US that do it quite right.

I usually eat a big bowl of cereal with milk. My mom is a big health nut, so we only have Honey Bunches of Oats (with Almonds!), Cheerios, and Special K... I usually do half a bowl of the HBoO and the other half of either Cheerios or Special K.

Pay for it?

6, I think. 2 pairs of sneakers, 2 pairs of sandals, a pair of comfyslippers, and my black "formal" shoes.

Not a whole lot!

Next round will certainly be the last!

"If you could travel to any five cities on earth, which would you go to"?
I would pick Rome, Osaka, Singapore, Cairo, and London, in no particular order.

"Why don't you like Koishi? What would Koishi have to do to be a good character to you?"
I know everyone interprets characters in their own way, but I can't see Koishi as anything but a useless coward who ran away from her problematic-power, and just makes trouble now for everyone else. If she were more like Satori, who stands up to her problem/power in her own way, then she'd be redeemable.
I'm a very headstrong person, so it grew beyond annoying and ended up pissing me off... The opposite of what happened to my dislike for Remilia, which turned into wry amusement. ^^;

"Why do you like weapons? Which is your favorite?"
I had a kind-of violent childhood, getting into fights (and winning!) on a fairly regular basis. As everyone around me grew up, and I essentially failed to grow, knowing how to defend myself became more and more important.
After moving before the start of high school, I decided to use that chance to start over and try to be a good person, but my interest in fighting and weapons has never gone away.
I'll name two favorites: The AA-12 Combat Shotgun and the Naginata. Both are fairly lightweight, very effective at what they do, and easy to use, but require a certain level of ability to use well. (It's kind of a touchy topic, but I think that anyone who equates shooting as "pointing and killing" is equating using a sword to "swinging and killing." Both are legitimate martial "arts," in my opinion.)

"I think that this is all I am going to to ask you. Thanks~"
You're welcome!


The End!
