I came up with and ran the CLaDOS contest. That's about it, really, except for weighing in on internal staff and town-hall debates at random.

How does it feel to be a mascot? Why did you get the 13th AaS, and is this a sign of the Armageddon?

I feel very in touch with my fursona.

My zodiac sign is Ophiuchus. (Actually, it's Cancer.)

Do you think I should quit playing trivia? :V

Not at all, as long as you "!handicap 9999" at the beginning. I may add a nick recognition feature to save you the trouble.

Who the hell are you?
A friend of TSO's who helped set up and host some early incarnations of the forum and PPIrC, essentially. The timeline and TSO's Ask a Staffer talk about me a bit. I've never been much of a forum person, but there was a time I was very active on #shrinemaiden IRC.

On a more serious note, how long have you been around here for?
Pretty close to the beginning, certainly way before there was any WTC to speak of other than this place. I'm not so confident about the dates in the timeline thread, but if that's to be trusted it's been six years now.

What do you do on an average day?
If today is an average day: wake up, play Dead Space 2, go to my one Tuesday class (Environmental Problems and Solutions), play more Dead Space 2, get stuck on the final battle and stop, fail to run a logistic regression procedure for five hours, eat dinner, watch Sengoku Otome, and since then pretty much moulder.

Probably going to try that logistic regression procedure again. Need to get my final project done.
Anyway, I don't have much of a life. :toot:

Am I as derpy as that one lamer in trivia says I am?  :derp:
To answer I would have to know at what angle your pupils point away from each other.

How do you feel about the trivia irc having at most 4 active people?
Probably my fault for not taking care of it lately.

Which is the best answer to a trivia quesiton: marisa kirisame, bacon, or reimu hakurei?

Serious question: You definitely have to love animals. Everybody loves animals. What do you actually think of animals as pets in general? Slaves being locked up or strained by a chain or your best friend (cats, docks, birds etc)

Black Jack. Manga moreso than any of the anime (they're not bad, the format just doesn't adapt well.)

What is the 7th Holy scripture in this world. Enlighten us.
The one after the sixth.

Or going by Civ4, the Quran.

Serious question: You definitely have to love animals. Everybody loves animals. What do you actually think of animals as pets in general? Slaves being locked up or strained by a chain or your best friend (cats, docks, birds etc)
Well, after watching my housecat utterly fail to catch a mouse that's been running around the place for a week, I have to say our current pets are definitely better off with us. I suppose if I were one, I'd rather beguile a sentimental human and give up some freedom than hunt for my food as well.

Oh yeah, the last boss of Dead Space 2. Can't get past it either, get swarmed so easily.
And the fact that Isaac walks doesn't help too.
Yeah, the only thing I have that works well against them is the force gun. I'm pretty much out of ammo too, but maybe that's par for the course.


Why are you so damn good at rock paper scissors?
Artiodactyly.

You were presumably very into the series when you arrived. Several years down the line, what's your current opinion of Touhou?
Honestly? I'm annoyed by how utterly it (and some of the other major fanbases, like Hetalia and K-ON) monopolize the Japanese doujin scene. I'd really like to see some more variety and original work.

I have nothing against the games themselves, but I was never much into shmups (strictly an Easy/Normal player in terms of Touhou.) And as they go, I like Hitogata Happa more. I also think ZUN ought to collaborate more often like he did on Fairy Wars and the fighters.

How do you always seem to sound so reasonable in the big staff debates?
By only chiming in when I think I have a solid point.

Akiha > Ciel?
Definitely. Call it insubordination if you please, but I don't really like Ciel at all.

Chilling out with the Pope.

Via the fanart or more specifically Pooshlmer.

If I could say it wouldn't be original, would it? :p
I suppose complete originality is too much to hope for, but when everything is borrowed I quickly cease to find doujin interesting. I'd like to see more games like Recettear or Rosenkreuzstilette that at least settle for only copying gameplay. Failing that, some diversity; I want to hear arrangements of music other than Touhou BGM.

Why is Edible your favorite dish?
Cause there's nothing quite like him served at McDonalds.

How's it been hanging?
Like the Dakota War.

I'm a geography major, focus in GIS (or in layman's terms computer cartography.) Ideally, I'd have liked to make games or translate them, but I'm well aware both of those are crummy jobs. "Do what you enjoy as a hobby instead, or you'll stop enjoying it" is a thought I had when picking a major a few years back. This way I can be a bit more socially responsible, too.

Also I suck at math too much to major in CS and I don't like talking to people in Japanese, only reading it.

Why Mami?
Spoiler:

mammies

  One wish. What is it?
Not having to go to class for three hours in a bit would be nice. I woke up too early, could use a nap.

Seriously, I'd probably end up going for something altruistic but phrase it in such a way that it could be corrupted/not have the strength to execute it myself, thus no one ends up happy.

What is your opinion on the cause of the Bronze Age collapse?
Clearly, when Atlantis sank, it took civilization with it.

Do you still love us? =[?
無。

Where are the Snowdens of Yesteryear?
Heller if I know.

Why am I your uncle?
Because you have me in an arm lock.

Flee to me, Remote elf?
sit on a potato pan, Otis.

Are you a fan of Abridged Serieses?
Never watched one, not rally interested in doing so.

It's the 4th down, 45 seconds left in the game. You're at the 72 yard line, your star quarterback has come down with a case of the death. What are you going to have for dinner?
I'm thinking Chinese.

How did lucky number seven end up as thirteen?
Someone up there thought it was funny; we've been rolling the dice to decide who's next.

How long have you known TSO?
About seven years, I'd guess - I signed up for the forum where we met in late 2003.

What's the longest amount of time you've gone without sleep?
Probably around 36 hours. I pull a lot of random all-nighters, but tend to sleep in the morning after Japan has gone to bed.

Are you unaware of the other large doujinshi conventions in Japan that focus solely on original games?

Have you ever actually been to Comiket? Touhou only takes up about 1/9 of the whole thing.
