What do you feel is your best quality? Why?: My gentleness or my charisma. I've been told that I have a very gentle personality but I also have a way of drawing people to me. I'm soft-spoken and rather like that about myself despite people's complaints that they can't hear me. XD; I think and analyze very quickly. I've been told I'm very clever?
Your worst? Why?: My general lack of assertiveness unless I'm really pissed off. I'm not much of a go-getter without lots of support and I can be pretty vicious when I'm angry. I can be moody and I'm impatient with people who don't think through things as quickly as I can. I'm pretty compulsive. I think fast but lack focus. I'm told I'm hard to get to know. I'm not particularly good at choosing just one thing. XD;
What's your favorite quote? Why?: "We teach people how to treat us." I think there's a lot of truth in this statement and it's changed how I treat people close to me.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? Why?: Improved communication. I either completely lack tact and diplomacy or I'm too indirect or vague in my statements.
If you could change one things about the world, what would it be?: There isn't a lot I would change about the world because I think it's beautiful, even if it can be cruel. I do wish that more charitable people would work more toward fixing problems in their own backyard so to speak and work less toward fixing problems that lot of people in the world are already addressing.
Why do you like the anime/manga Prince of Tennis?: I like the diversity of the cast. I like how there's mini-fandoms within the larger one and there's just so much to theorize about and fangirl. I've also met some really lovely people since I've been in this fandom which contributes a lot to my fondness for it.
Who is your favorite character? Why? (You won't be judged on this): Fuji. I like his sense of humor and find his sense of justice to be really admirable. I think he's a fundamentally good person, if one who needs a lot of guidance.
Who is your least favorite character? Why?: Tezuka. I think that he's written more like a plot device than an actual well-developed character. His mentor role loses its impact later in the series. Basically, I think he should've been written out when he got injured and he became kind of extraneous for a while in story.
What's your favorite pairing? Why?: These days it's Sanada/Yukimura. I think they have a really touching relationship, either taken as platonic or romantic, and their steadfast belief in each other is really sweet. I also like the way their personalities complement each other and think their dedication to their team (and their teams continued winning) is really interesting.
What's your least favorite pairing? Why?: Fujicest. The subject matter just grosses me out, honestly.
If you got to choose a character in the show to be for 24 hours, who would it be? Why?: Probably Sakaki. You know he's rolling in the dough and probably drives a kickass car.
How did you find this community?: I was rated here a few years ago.
Anything else?: I've changed since the last time I was rated and I'm curious about who I would rate as now.
