Ask a Staffer - Lucky 7 Episode - Ask a Gap Edition!
« on: March 30, 2011, 04:07:17 PM »
It has been a long, long walk through the quiet and serene Forest of the Lost, up the narrow, flower-thronged footpaths of the Singing Hills, across the heather and honeysuckle-scented Fields of Gold, until you finally reach the Flower Meadow, a beautiful, blooming boundless field of flowers set ablaze by the warm glow of the late, spring sunset. The grove of cherry blossom trees embracing the meadow fills the air with a multitude of cherry petals that dance to and thro around you as you walk across the blooming acres. Here, the world was exploding with colour, celebrating the eve of Spring.

You walk over to the only landmark on the meadow, a lone cherry blossom tree standing amidst the meadow. Here...around here....but where....?

"Oh, a sound! A smell! Is this breakfast? Or lunch? Or dessert for lasts~? The sun is gone and the moon is come, so supper time has come along~" A cheerful singsong voice echoes about in the wind. "Humans, youkai, fairy, anything really~ Hope lives even in the least, and on Hope, Oh Hope, I feast~"

"Oh, what's this? What's this? Here, here, come here, come by, please, please, don't be shy~" The playful voice sings. You look around, looking for the source of the voice. "My, my, don't be shy, do come closer and say 'hi'~" The voice invites playfully as the last of the fiery sunlight sets the cherry petals around you ablaze.



] "Hmm? Oooh, it's a guest! You're really, really, really early, you know!  The festival's still a long, long, long time away though!" The voice trills, right behind your head. You turn around and find a pair of emerald green eyes peer back into yours, accompanied by a cheerful upside down grin. Here she is, the girl in red, who dances in the flower meadow. "People call me lots of things, they can never decide, as long as I can sing it I don't mind~ You can call me Gappy, it's easy to rhyme, Happy, Yippy, All the time~" She swings around off the low branch she was hanging on and lands at your feet.

"Ah, I see, I see, I see why you're so enthusiastic! There is something, something, something you seek!" She exclaims excitedly as she skips around you. "Here, drink, sit down! Questions, you have? Answers, you want? Don't worry, I have plenty to go around!" She pours out some sake for two, hands you a cup, before twirling onto the ground and taking her seat on the festival picnic mat. "Ask then, and I will answer. Truth or lie, you decide, however."

Why did you never show us your completed NaNoWriMo novel?

Because my pet tuna ate it The Nanowrimo novel in question was stolen by German scientists Lommel and Steinkopf and field-tested in the Battle of Ypres against advancing British Soldiers. Results were reportedly astounding, as, almost immediately, the troops fell to their knees, tears of blood running down their cheeks as they gouged out their eyeballs in sheer utter horror.

Since then, it has been classified as a class S weapon of mass destruction and banned by the Geneva Convention and 7 other human rights rulings.

(Though I never told you it's also available off the records, nudge nudge, wink wink)

What is your favourite food?

Oh! Oooh! I know! I know! Me! Me! Ummm....Sweets! Tiramisu! Chocolate! Cotton-candy! Oniic-...I mean, tunas! Pancakes! Melon bread! Flapjacks! Rur-...I mean, strawberries! Scones! Blackforest Cake! Germany! Peaches and Cream! Japan! Brownies! Italy! Taiyaki! Apple crumble! Earth! Roll cake! Pannetone! Christmas Pudding! The Sun! Pocky! Oreos! The Universe! And Cherries.

Why did you want to be a medical professional?

Sweets! Tiramisu! Chocolate! Cotton-candy! Pancakes! Melon bread! Flapjacks! strawberries! Scones, all the sweets I can ea....I-I-I mean, umm, because there's lots of mo-....I mean, I mean, the pharma reps are cu-...no, no, that's not it! The doctors all look co-...no, really, that's not it either!

....

Actually, that IS a good question. The hours are long and unpaid. The pay's lousy at best in comparison to the work. Everybody thinks you're lapdogs to the big pharmaceutical companies (and in a good number of cases that's actually true), the scum of the earth (unfortunately often true too), and moneygrubbing undertakers (often just as sadly true).

I must be crazy. No, insane!

Aaah, Mama, I wanna quit and become an investment banker.....

But, sometimes, I somehow manage to bring a little smile into the life of one who knows nothing but suffering, the old man whose relatives have forgotten, the single-mother dying of colon cancer, the Afghani war-refugee boy who tried to commit suicide......there is no other profession where I am empowered to ease the suffering of others and touch upon their lives in small, gentle ways. Everyday I come home, tired to the bone, but happy, very happy, that I've done just that little bit more for someone out there in the world. I think it's a job that will ensure me a fulfilling, happy life, such that, at the end of everything, when I close my book of life, turn out the lights and lock the door behind me, I can look back, give myself a pat on the back and say 'Job well done, Gappy', and walk away with a satisfied smile. To me, it's the greatest job in the world, and I would trade it for no other.

Typical Question:

Favorite Touhou character and why ?

Just look at my name, it's easy to see, my favourite chara is a certain Yukari Gotta catch'em all! I am rather promiscuous in that I love a good number of characters including Marisa, Alice, Suika, Suwako, Yukari, the 3 fairies, Orin, and Okuu. The others I simply like, but not as much.

But my favouritest favourite most favourited favourite character must and can only be....

<--- MIKO-ARMPITS

[ ....wait....Miku?! NO! I SAID MIKO! MIKO-ARMPITS! Where are my mikopits?! I'm not interested in Mikupits!

[ <--- MIKO MANPITS

Yes, that's more like it. Proper MikoPits.

Why Miko-Miko Reimu? Because, Armpits



MANLINESS! THAT'S WHY! Because she's probably the manliest member of the cast, as you can see here. Manlier than Marisa, in my opinion. Why, you ask? Because she's badass, awesome, and kicks butt, for profit, for personal satisfaction, or even for as much as upsetting her tea.

What follows next is my own personal interpretation of Reimu - she is the sworn protector of Gensokyo's balance, keeper of Yukari's forcefields of doom the great Hakurei barrier, and general lazy butt miko. Her job, when you can call it that, is a thankless one. Her role as protector of the balance requires her to be just and unbiased in every respect. That includes friendships and love - she is charged with not holding any one individual above another, whether as friends or loved ones. This paints a rather tragic picture as, being (one of) Gensokyo's most powerfu, she stands alone at the top, unable to reach out to others. Often her job requires her to mercilessly beat down people around her, sometimes even her own friends, marking her as an evil bully at best, a heartless genocidal killing machine at worst. And yet she maintains that stoic, cheerful, 'devil may care' attitude on the surface. One (I) can only wonder what's really going on deep down in her heart of hearts....

Are you a girl or a boy?

boy, I shall carve this into your frontdoor with a jackhammer - I'M THE MANLIEST MANLY MAN MADE OF MANLY MANLINESS.

What were you looking to do when you volunteered to be the acolyte for the Art forum?  What's kept you motivated to remain as such, both through good times and bad?

I didn't volunteer, I was asked to do it by el grande presidente herself....

Anouu....etoooo....

And...and....broaden my hor-...horrib....horrib....horisons? hori-zones! And....and to....create a healthy...riv....drive....driving....thriving! Thriving communi-thing for artists at Maidens-of-the-Kaleidoscope that would father....err....foster...foster...foster creativi-things and friendship! yay! Friendship amongst artists e-ve-ry-where~

....



* Gappy rips the script apart and feeds it to a pack of hungry wolverines!

* Gappy leaps atop the desk and grabs the microphones.

LISTEN TO ME, PEOPLE OF THE ATELIER! THE HOUR OF GLORY IS FINALLY AT HAND! WE HAVE STRIVEN HARD AND LONG FOR THIS MOMENT, AND, FINALLY, OUR MOMENT OF GREATNESS IS UPON US! I BECAME YOUR ACOLYTE BECAUSE I HAD A VISION! A DREAM! THAT ONE GREAT AND MOMENTOUS DAY, WE SHALL MARCH ACROSS THE FACE OF THIS SAD, SUFFERING PLANET AND TOPPLE OVER THE OPPRESSORS OF THE PEOPLES! TOGETHER, WE SHALL LIBERATE OUR FELLOW MAN AND BUILD A UTOPIA! A UTOPIA, ONE NOT BUILT ON SLAVERY AND DECEPTION, ON LIES AND OPPRESSION, BUT ON FREEDOM, ON LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL. WHAT IS THIS FREEDOM, YOU ASK?! IT IS A FAIR QUESTION. IT IS SOMETHING YOU DO NOT KNOW, YOU DO NOt UNDERSTAND, FOR IT HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU, IN EVERY SHAPE AND FORM! BUT TOMORROW YOU SHALL SEE IT, MY BRETHREN AND SISTHREN! WE SHALL BE FREE TO STAY UP AS LONG AS WE WANT! WE SHALL BE FREE TO EAT COOKIES AND SWEETS BEFORE DINNERTIME! WE SHALL BE FREE TO WATCH TELEVISION FOR AS LONG AS WE LIKE! AND THERE SHALL BE NO SCHOOL! NO SCHOOL! IT SHALL BE TRUE, UNALDUTERATED FREEDOM, ONE OUR FOREFATHERS ONLY DREAMT OF!

What? Oh, right....err, wrong building entirely. I see, so the Atelier Liberation Movement rally is happening across the road? I see, I see....

Right.

Err....what keeps me going through the good times and the bad?

As you all may know, medical school keeps me busy and away from that which I most love - art. I suppose these are the 'bad times', the times when my acolyte-ness is most tested. I guess what keeps me going is tuna-whackings from Sakana-niichan my fellow artists and musicians, whose constant dedication, hardwork and nagging on me to get my butt back to the Atelier once in a while inspire me to do my very best. More importantly, the entire community, everyone who comes by the Atelier to appreciate the fine labours of passion there, who give the work meaning and value, you, all of you, move me, inspire me to greater heights. I'm sure I speak for the rest of the Atelier here when I say that art's true value is when it is given meaning by the world. That world is you, MotK. So, Artists, Community members, keep supportin' the Atelier, Keep on Rockin' on~

What area of the medical field do you plan on going into?

Cardiothoracic Surgery, AKA Heart Surgery~ Cause the heart is just so cuuuute, when it goes ba-dump~ ba-dump~ ba-dump~ there, in the open chest cavity, all round and pink and just so fragile yet full of importance~

You know, the heart is much like Reimu. It's so small and fragile, so alone and helpless, yet it carries such a huge burden of responsibility. It soldiers on, stoically, for years and years, without rest, without a moment of respite. Sometimes, it gets overwhelmed and it shrieks out silently for help, but nobody hears....but I'll be there for you, I'll be listening to your cries for help with my trusty stethoscope and my steadfast ECG, and I'll come save you in your hour of need, Reimu hearts~

Who is your favorite artist?

ME

Boy, are you implying I'm a fascist? Because Hitler's an artist. Hitler's a Fascist. Therefore, Artists are Hitlers Fascists! A = B. A = C. Therefore, B = C.

SOOOOO?! ARE YOU?! ARE YOU?! COME ON, SAY IT TO MY FACE!

Anyway, my favourite artist is my elder brother who sweeps the floor with the competition....which, sadly, includes me....

Despite the board split, do you think that PSL and AAA are really that separate?

THEY ARE ONE! UNDER ME! SAKANA-NIICHAN, I WILL ONE DAY RECLAIM WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY MINE!

Writers and artists are essentially the same in many respects, for example they both are geeks, thrive off BS, charge extravagant amounts of money for BS, live large off BS, they both seek to express their feelings, emotions and creativity, in essence, their very soul, in a physical undertaking of some description. I myself am both, and I feel both are excellent outlets for my...

....FIERY BURNING MANLY SOUL MADE OF MANLY MANLINESS THAT SHALL ONE DAY NOT ONLY PIERCE THE HEAVENS BUT ALSO PUT A NOSE RING THROUGH IT, TAME IT, THEN MILK IT FOR PROFIT.

But I personally approve of the separation. Artists and Writers both take pride in their work and the separate boards allows them their own identities, acknowledgement and appreciation that they are an art form unto themselves, which will, one hopes, inspire them to greater greatness and PROFIT.
