Dear people who have interacted with me in person: how do you feel about my eye contact? I feel like it’s general low-level uncomfortable not happening normally, but sometimes I get really self-conscious about it/weird about it and can’t manage to even look at people at all even though I’m talking to them? Maybe it varies from person to person? Mostly I feel like when I’m paying attention to try and think about it it changes a lot.

times: when do you normally awaken?
It varies very widely from 6am to about 3pm, depending on where my rhythm is at. I try to keep it at about 7-10am for uni.
marking: describe your tattoos, or tattoos you would like in the future?
I’m getting the first part as described here tomorrow!(!!)

reverie: think of somewhere otherworldly u wish to be within, what is it like there?
Otherworldly in the sense of not being in Melbourne I’m going to have to say there isn’t an applicable somewhere I would want to be.

folk: who is the most fantastical being u have known?
Being around or interacting with Paolo feels a little like having fallen between worlds into the fae court, and always leaves me feeling a little dazed afterwards, but then I’ve not been around them much, so maybe that abates over time.
elder: what do u expect to be like in your elder years?
This heavily depends on how well I can start managing my mental health. I have no idea what my career will be like, either, which is going to shape it a lot. Ideally like really chill and giving out good advice? Idk??
home: in what type of environment do you feel most safe?
With about two to five(? maybe more up to like 8-10 possibly, I’m not sure) people I trust. Quiet surroundings, everyone comfortable, nice chats, maybe naps. Okay mostly I’ve just described Haunt so
offering: how do you show others you are fond of them?
I haven’t really figured out a good way to do this yet. Mostly thus far I’ve just been trying to make sure I’m able to help to the best of my ability whenever they need it, but being cautious around boundaries in place of being good with them often just means I don’t end up doing stuff because they don’t know or would be more comfortable with me asking.

sleep: what is the most comforting thing at night time for you?
The presence of people I trust.
treat: your favorite sweets?
Probably the chocolate things from camp or cookies or something. I don’t eat a whole lot of sweet things.
Asked the following by dermisphere
warmth: what do you find most charming in others?
The ability to care for others. This is what I see and adore most in humanity, and without fail I see it in the people that I consider great. I’m fairly uncomfortable around strangers that are charming in the conventional sense, as it’s a display of social agility and proficiency that I have been previously hurt by. (It’s a little like talking to a stranger while they hold a knife - it’s just slightly threatening to me.)
stories: books you remember from your childhood?
Sabriel, and the Earthsea cycle. Both very important for learning pre-existing ideas in fantasy (and something to break the huge amount of mythology I’d read beforehand), as well as presenting some of the earliest and strongest actual female protagonists I’d come into contact with.
finds: what kind of item would you most likely buy from an antique store?
Most likely small trinkets that I find interesting: parts of machines/mechanisms, ornaments & jewellery. Generally things I find interesting rather than things that are practical. I silently enjoy the idea of objects having had accumulated experiences, and mostly just want to give ones that have had a fair life before coming into my possession a good place to stay. As a whole it’s very superstitious.
