Delusions of Gothic by GrahamSym

I have been forced to do this against my will by ToaArcan . Send help.

RULES:
1.- You have to post these rules
2.- Each person has to share 13 things about them
3.- Answer the 13 questions asked to you and invent 13 questions the people you tag will have to answer 
4.- Choose 13 people
5.- Go to their page to inform them they are tagged
6.- Not something like "you are tagged if you read that" 
7.- You have to legitimately tag 13 people. (Haha, no)
8.- You can't say that you don't do tags.
9.- Tag-backs are ALLOWED
10.-YOU MUST MAKE A JOURNAL ENTRY. NO COMMENTS. Unless you're commenting about the actual entry.
11.- You have to finish this within a week. If not; you'll have to do whatever the creator tells you to. Art, rp, etc.

13.- Cussing is ALLOWED

So apparently, thirteen facts about myself:

1) I am, in fact, so British that I've been likened to Waglington, a Minecraft livestreamer who lives in Nottingham.

2) When I visited America last December, it was the third time I'd ever been on a plane.

3)I have Asperger's Syndrome, essentially meaning I should be socially inadequate and be incapable of adapting to new routines. Instead it means I am stupidly analytical.

4) I'm a xenophile, meaning I place romantic value in people who display unique or different characteristics.

5) I'm also an empath, meaning I connect deeply with the characters I write in stories. It has led to some genuinely emotional moments in many instances of writing. Because of this, despite having a very GoT attitude towards my fiction, I find it very hard to kill characters.

6) I'm a complete sodding juxtaposition of myself. I built my own computer and am going to university to work on game design, but have a classic car, hate modern phones, and loathe ebooks, much preferring solid copies.

7) I have never had a relationship with someone from my country. My first was with a girl from Portugal that ended in the most stupid, convoluted, frustrating and hilarious way (seriously, ask me about it, it's amazing), and my current partner is from America.

8) Though I very rarely have the luck, I love role-playing, via notes or through the more conventional RPG tabletop games. I really wish I could do more of it but very few people seem to be interested.

9) My life is a series of songs. Moments in my life and in my stories have tunes that fit to them, and all the music I listen to needs to have a certain story or pattern that connects to it in my mind or I can't listen to it more than once.

10) I have a very unusual condition that means my head contains thousands of personalities, each slightly different from each other in some factor including upbringing, outlook, interests, gender, race and so on. It provides me with a unique outlook.

11) I have spent the vast majority of my writing incapable of stepping outside the bounds of fanfiction due to an almost chronic inability to create original ideas. However thanks to some rather minimal inspiration I will soon be leaving the vaster network of fanfiction behind in favour of original works.

12) I have only successfully collaborated with :icontoaarcan: to the point of finishing pieces, whereas all others have been put on one haitus or another, or cancelled completely. This is likely due to knowing each other well and being familiar with our styles.

13) I won't be tagging anybody or providing extra questions at the end of this because fuck the rules, I have no money.

So, the questions Arcan provided?


1) What's the worst movie you've ever seen?
I don't really know if I have a bad one. They're all pretty mediocre for me, and I believe I may have genuinely forgotten the ones I thought were bad. Big Hero 6 disappointed me though, due to having maybe 2.5 fight scenes.

2) Is it okay to laugh at tongue-in-cheek, deliberately "offensive" dark comedy?
That depends on the purpose of the comedy. If its intention is "this is dark, laugh at how fucking ridiculously dark it is" then yes.

3) What sort of TV program would you like to see permanently cancelled?
Teen Titans Go! KivaHoloTitan would likely agree on this.

4) Who is worse: Marvel or DC?

I don't know enough to be sure. Based on movies, DC is worse. On anything else, I can't comment.

5) What do you consider to be your best deviation on this site?
Either of the Death's Call pieces. I know I've written more supported literature before, but considered they are my first real solo foray into original fiction, I feel something good about them.

6) Which is better: Creepy/disturbing/uncanny material, or openly visceral, scary horror?
I rank them about equally. Depends on the intended mood, theme, and messages intended.

7) What is the last movie you saw in the cinema/theatre?

Mad Max: Fury Road. Better than it looked, and reminded me of Wacky Races.

8) Do you prefer stories to be more lighthearted and comedic, or intense and pulse-pounding?

If you're having to pick between the two, you're doing it wrong. A story should have everything that is necessary, not specific tailoring to right 'areas'.

9) Who do you main (Play as most) in Super Smash Bros? If you don't have the game, which character would you main?
Kaylenna, because I wreck face as her for some reason.

10) What franchises do you think actually need a reboot, if not a corporate-driven schlocky one from Hollywood?
I don't know enough franchises to name one.

11) Heroes or villains?
Heroes.

12) You are sent back in time, to a small room in Austria. In front of you is the infant Adolf Hitler. There is nobody around to see or hear what you are doing. Nobody even knows you are there. You can return to your own timeline whenever you wish. What do you do?
Going to veto on this because I don't like time travel.

13) Have you watched Red vs. Blue and Xionic Madness yet?
Why are we here?
  • Mood: Not Impressed
  • Listening to: Frame of Mind Piano Mix - Tristam & Braken
  • Reading: Empire in Black & Gold
  • Playing: Styx

Check it out guys, that's me.
Wargamer, poet, novelist. Don't like sport, don't like parties, and that's the way I like it.

I'm a writer, plain and simple. At least, I think so. I've had people who love my work, and one who even likened it to Khaled Hosseini's Kite Runner. I'm a go-to guy for that sort of information, and if you want hints or advice for writing in prose, feel free to approach me. I'm happy to talk with anyone as long as you are polite, treat me with an appropriate amount of respect, and please try and use grammar. I don't like reading a continuous stream of writing with absolutely no punctuation to tell me where the sentence - if it indeed does - starts or ends; it hurts. Just...punctuate a little, when you talk to me, just so it sounds like I'm talking to a person, not a computer.

I'm not a friend-o-philic. I don't add you to my watch purely because you added me to yours. It doesn't work like that. I don't give people watches purely because they replied to a comment of mine. If you want me in your Watchers list, you need to have a gallery that mostly has things I want to look at. One piece is not enough to make me want to follow your deviations. I don't mind if you don't release regularly, but unless the art is consistently stuff I want to see, I might favourite the pieces I like, but not watch.

Now, honestly, if you read my stuff and don't like it, don't even bother flaming me for it. If you don't like it, don't read it - it won't affect you in any way whatsoever if you follow this simple piece of advice. If you enjoy my work, feel free to comment with any criticisms or favourite parts, but I won't accept things like "this sucks because it remotely deviates from the original." I want to make things clear: The things I write are for fun, they are often fanfictions or new ideas I have, so do not expect me to be evangelical about it.

Sometimes I come to blows with people about what art really is. I've had people who don't believe literature is a form of art, and some who will believe that anything is art. I believe that art is the soul, written or drawn or painted or whatever you do, into the piece and thus lain out bare. It is a riddle within the darkness and the grey and the light that only those who are true can solve, it is an impossible conundrum, the master paradox. It's truth, the expression of who we are. That is art.

Personal Quote: "Expect no equal resistance - to strike against me is to meet the harshest retaliation. Perhaps I will play a game, but sooner or later my words will slice through your tongue."
