I was tagged by Fraser Sherman to answer some questions, so without further ado:
1)Name a book it surprised you that you liked.
We read Little Women in one of my undergrad university courses on American Literature. It was not a good class. But I did find myself growing invested in the lives of the March sisters, which is not something I thought would ever happen based on my sole experience with the novel previously consisting of “this is a book my sister liked in high school.” The ending, however, made me angry—which seems to have been Louisa May Alcott’s intent.
2)What food do you hate most?
There’s a Polish soup with sliced up beef stomach as its primary ingredient.
3)A TV show you never miss.
Currently, Agent Carter. This is actually not as easy a question to answer these days when our primary way of consuming TV is fast becoming to stream the entire series in as short a time as possible. But with shows that do come out weekly, I couldn’t wait for new episodes of: The Last Kingdom, Orphan Black, The Expanse and Game of Thrones.
4)What super-power would you most like to have?
Acute clairvoyance would be very useful.
5)The fictional character you’d most like to meet.
I think Orm the Red from The Long Ships would be a fun drinking partner.
6)The fictional character you’d most like to be (at least for a while).
Fflweddur Fflam has a more pleasant life than most. I like going for characters who presumably live a natural lifespan for a question like this.
7)Your favorite mythological character.
This is more difficult. I’m not sure if Gilgamesh is all that likable, so I’d have to go with Enkidu. He’s a beast.
