Huh. So looks like it's my turn to do this whole Q&A thing.

For those who aren't aware, I'm a Librarian, which makes me Ruro's lowly underling one of the members in charge of PSL. For all of you who've never ventured into the Library's dark depths scenic corridors before, it's a pleasure to meet you.

: G'morning! Or evening. I dunno...Rou-kun, this timezone thing you told me about is confusing...

Huh? Sango, what're you doing out here? Head back to the library right now. Uncle Rou's in the middle of some important Library work.

: Oh! You mean like that time when Ruro-tan had everyone dress up as Rurouni Kenshin characters to celebrate the new anime-

NO NOT LIKE THAT. I THOUGHT WE SWORE THAT WOULD NEVER LEAVE THE LIBRARY.

: P-Phwee! Sorry! Not good with secrets!

...Well. Since she's come all the way out here, I may as well introduce those of you who aren't aware. This is Sango, one of my original characters. I've grown pretty fond of her over the years, and I like to think of her as my signature character or something along those lines.

: Yup, that's me! I'm also on mallet duty whenever Rou-kun's writing. If he so much as thinks about going to sleep, whammo! Ruro-tan gave me that job, for the record.

...Sango. Too much info.

: Oh...um. Sorry! ...Again.

Aaaaanyway. Get firin' with those questions. Be warned that any information that if revealed would break my contract as a Librarian is immediately off the table. No measurements, no dirty secrets, nothing. Ruro would destroy me ;_;

The threat of sweet oblivion if I should fail to deliver.

Quote
Why do you write, and how do you choose which ideas to follow through with?
Seriously? I write simply because writing is fun. I like telling stories, building worlds and such. I like making characters, defining them, letting them grow.
Which stories to go through with? The ones that involve the most swimsuits To an extent it's just which stories I start on. After I get started I feel obliged to keep going, unless I'm juggling around several stories at once in which case some will inevitably fall to the wayside (sorry FoFF ;_;)

Quote
How do you deal with writer's block?

: My job! If Rou-kun's writing speed goes under thirty words a minute - mallet time!

Sango, why have you betrayed me like this?! I thought we were friends!

: Ruro-tan pays really well for me to watch over you, y'know?

In all seriousness though, I don't really have a way around writer's block. I sort of push at it for a while, and if nothing's coming I'll try again tomorrow. Some days inspiration flows freely; others nothing comes to mind. That to an extent is how writing goes, and you learn to live with it.

: Hey there!

Ah, should've mentioned this. Sango's a dolphin youkai.

Quote
Does Sango have a last name?
Tororetsu, which may or may not have been the end result of me picking various kanji in order to get a name involving purity. (Her power is basically manipulation of water purity, and I'm always one for theme naming. :V)

What do I do if that dolphin starts singing?
Depends what the song is about. If she's saying farewell and thanking you for the fish, you may want to start panicking.

Quote
How many things can you cut?
ALL OF THEM. Except a few. BUT NEVER MIND THOSE.

Quote
What compels you to write?
Ideas, more than anything. If something interesting comes to mind I have a desire to put it to paper.
To an extent, I like seeing that people have enjoyed my writing too. Seeing people say they enjoy it generally gives me an extra bit of motivation.

Can your dolphin kick ass, take names, defeat aliens through time and and alternate dimensions and complete Hanging Waters without falling out of the water tubes even once?
: Sure! I can totally kick ass, take names, and-
: Eh? Time travel? Aliens? Hanging waters? Alternate dimensions?!
: What kinda crazy challenge is thaaaat?!

It's SHITE being Scottish! We're the lowest of the low, the scum of the fucking earth, the most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever shat into civilization. Some people hate the English, I don't. They're just wankers. We, on the other hand, are colonized by wankers. We can't even find a decent culture to be colonized by.

We USED to be kinda awesome, when we were fighting off the English with sheer manliness and holding out to protect the nation. Then the Union of the Crowns happened, and the only notable battle you're taught about after that is Culloden. Since then we've pretty much been stuck doing whatever Westminster tells us to do, and it's not economically viable for us to stand as our own country, either.
So...yeah. We kinda suck. :<

Confusing people with my accent. This will sound strange, but despite being a full-blooded Scot I for some reason sound thoroughly American. I had some speech and language impediments at a young age, and apparently it's a common result.
This comes up in discussion with the first 5 minutes of me meeting someone, almost inevitably. I have practiced my response for 'so where are you from?' more or less to a tee.

##Eat Sango

You owe me a visit to SA after a particular game of taking it easy.
: Phweeeeeee~! R-Rou-kun! The scary rabbit is gonna eat meeeeee!

You don't wanna do that, pal. Tastes terrible. She'll give you horrible indigestion.

: Right! I taste really really ba-

: Wait, what are you trying to say?!

And for the record, I've left the country once in my life for an afternoon. A trip halfway across the world is not likely to do my psyche any favours. -_-

I did not understand. Water Purity? Elaborate.
There's really not much to the concept. If water gets dirty, Sango can make it clean again. She's also got a vial that lets her shift a given pool between saltwater and freshwater, but she never really has a use for it.

Quote
When did you create Sango and why're you so fond of her?
To be honest? Sango was invented more or less by accident.
It started off here, when I basically decided it'd be a cute concept to write about Satori swimming with dolphins. As is typical with my writing I went about a dozen steps too far in, and realised I was going to have to give the dolphin a personality too. After some thought, some helpful suggestions and some rummaging-around-for-kanji-to-use, I had made Sango. Thus I got to finish my little story.
Except I then went about a dozen steps too far AGAIN, and found myself wanting to continue it further. The result in full was my first 'big' story, Third Eye in Pure Waters.

Why does Sango hold special meaning to me? Well, she's the first character that I created myself, which is a big thing. It also helps that a lot of her issues in TEiPW were to an extent reflections of my own at the time - the question of 'why do something if no-one will notice it?' Having her get through that helped me with it as well, I think.

Quote
Oh, and she really did not look like a dolphin.
Easier to tell in a full picture. She's kinda got a full fin coming out of her back. :P

WHAT IS CURRENT DOLPHIN DOING HERE WHERE IS MY ROU-TAN
: Uwahh...just hearing that name makes me think of that suplex. I saw the world curving...

Unfortunately I think I've already got enough obligations to take care of right now to think of getting back to Cyborg Quest. Maybe when uni is over with and summer starts I'll be able to find the time, but until then Rou-tan's in storage.

What is your favourite flavour of ice cream?
Chocolaaaaaaaaate.
Unless this is a trick question where if I don't say strawberry you fire me, in which case strawberry.

Quote
What is your favourite pastime?
Quote from: Haku
What kind of games do you play?
Hm. Actually a bit of a tough question. I've only got a few hobbies I'm really into at the moment, but they're all kinda close.
In particular, with games I've got two real genres I'm into - fighting games and...I'm not sure how to define games like Phoenix Wright - Action-VN? - but those too. Strange combo, but such is the way. The fighting games are more for the community and MAD HYPE we sometimes get.
I play chess a bit. It's not something I state blatantly, but I enjoy the game, and I'd like to think I'm pretty good at it.
Recently, on top of this, I'm getting into tabletop roleplaying. The reason I took so long to get this batch of answers out was that I was away being a crazy fighter-who-thinks-he's-a-wizard-and-a-cleric in 3.5. [The best part about the character is that when he rolls for skills he shouldn't be good at, he succeeds.]
Writing, though, is probably edging out. The other games typically involve fitting in roles, living out positions. In writing, you don't just choose the role you play, you choose the world you play it in. My main issue with writing, frankly, is that I can't keep having original ideas and thoughts constantly, and there'll be plenty of times where I sit for fifteen minutes straight trying to work out how to word a scene and getting nothing.

: Which means mallet~!

Yes, Sango. The throbbing at the back of my head was enough to remind me of that.

Quote
Are you the one who keeps trying to get into my strawberry harvest?
If I answered "Yes, so I could keep giving your own strawberries back to you and not have to scrounge up more to pay my blackmail reputation protection fees", would you reward me for ingenuity?

What's up with you and Pesco? He seems to have this inexplicable power over you.
I'm not sure what the thing with Pesco is, frankly. Hell, when I started off around here, I hated the guy with a passion. His general cockiness and attitude in Mafia just made my blood boil, and he deliberately toyed with me in games to get tells out of me. I took it personally, but in a way we sort of ended up having a bond based on that.
And...to an extent I guess I was a little tsundere. The way he could sometimes make crazy reads for crazy reasons and be right impressed me. On top of that, I ended up talking to him a lot outside of Mafia, which admittedly is more than I can say about most of the other players. :<
I'm not gonna go into it for his sake, but I've seen there's a little more to Pesco than he lets on in public. At times he's still a jerk, but he's still my bro before any of that.

Do you believe in the me that believes in you?
Spoiler:
Not until you die tragically and give me a reason to undergo a GLORIOUS REBIRTH

You are young, you're free. Why don't you sleep with me?
Because I don't want rabies. :<

You are extremely good at parodies (see the Shakespeare WWC, the rewrite of the Soviet Union History Tetris song, and other stuff), but you do them rather rarely. Any specific reasons for that?
Generally I don't like parody, for the basic reason that it gives me less room to work. I have to comply to certain points on top of the fact it's Touhou, and to an extent it doesn't feel like I'm writing something new so much as it feels like I'm rewriting something that's already been done.

Quote
Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Frankly, I have no freaking clue where I'll be in 2021. I have a few ideas of where I'd WANT to be - either a full fledged novelist (which frankly I don't feel I have the skill for at the moment) or a proper game developer (which will be a challenge thanks to *~*THE ECONOMY*~*). I've never really had a solid path I've wanted to take in life, a job I felt I REALLY wanted, or anything like that.

Quote
School swimsuits: White or Blue?
Blue. Not that white's bad, obviously - just a little less interesting to me.

Quote
Have you been closer to Sango than I have? 
Spoiler:

I've been inside Sango's head. I've worked out her responses to discussion as if I was her. I have done more than become close with Sango. I have become ONE with her.

: T-That's not a euphemism, for the record. I know some of you folks out there would like to take it as such, but he's done nothing to me yet!
Besides, I could do waaaay better.


Wait, WHAT? Sangoooooo!

: Phweeheehee~

What happens when fish collide?
Headaches. Occasionally, finaches or scaleaches. It depends on where the collision happens, basically.

Used to have Vegas, but then the computer I was using got fritzed. I'm now on a crappy laptop that can't so much as run Fraps correctly, so there's no real hope for me anymore. :<

Quote
What's your obsession with swimsuits?
I've always found swimsuits and water in general fascinating, basically. I'm not sure how it started, but I've liked the idea since I was a kid. Really, there's no deep meaning to it - just a quirk I've always had.

Quote
As someone with AS myself, do you think having it has had a significant effect on your life?
Well, I can definitely say it screwed up the first 10 or so years of my education at the very least. Not 'getting' all these social ticks made me sort of an outcast at primary school, and by the time I got the hang of it in secondary school it was too late to really join one of the little circles.
I'm not exactly good with independent living either. Let's put it this way - I've only started seriously trying to cook my own dinner this week, and I'm 19. -_-
Uni, though, has been a great improvement for me. It's a fresh start, and I've been getting involved in clubs, and there's a group of guys who I'm really friendly with right now. Generally it feels like I'm starting to catch up for real now, and I'm enjoying it.

Have you ever considered a future in marine studies, or something similar?
Honestly, as much as marine study and such interests me, I don't think I'd be able to hold down a job there. For one I'm bad with biology, and I'm also terrible with animals. As in I am actually slightly frightened by my own cat. :<
Also, I can't actually swim. -_-

Quote
What are the books that you think influenced you the most?
Not sure if it counts, but in English class in secondary I read Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, and even after the usual bash-your-head-in-with-all-this-symbolism that English class consists of it's still probably my favourite play of all time. It'sthe one play I'd recommend to anyone and everyone.
What else? Well, shamefully for a librarian, I'm far too picky with my literature. My last big rush of books was detective fiction, but there wasn't anything there that really rung with me.
The one book I remember actually gripping me and never letting go was Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I was 11 or something when the second book came out, and I basically snatched it off my sister the moment she finished and stayed up well past midnight reading it. I fell in love with that world of magic, of fantasy, but when things got darker I don't think I kept up. It grew faster than I wanted it to, or something along those lines.

I think Harry Potter was the first story that got me interested in actual writing. It was a fantastical world hidden right beneath our eyes, at the same time innocent yet stunning. I think at some level I wanted to make my own world like that, and things just went from there.
