RULES
1. You must posts these rules.
2. Each person has to share 10 things about themselves.
3. Answer the 10 questions asked to you and invent 10 questions the persons you tag will have to answer.
4. Choose 10 people and put their icons on your journal.
5. Go to their page to inform them they are tagged, but not something like " you are tagged if you read that".
7. You have to legitimately tag 10 people. 
8.New rule:No retagging those already tagged...

Ten things about myself...um...I like making origami on occasion, I play chess but am currently unrated, I like the piano composers Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Khachaturian, among others; I have a Nintendo DS; I can read pretty fast; I am making a visual novel at the moment; I'm not a coffee person and I prefer hot chocolate or vanilla chai (which I've only had once, but it was very good); I have a lot of favorite books; I think letters are a more personal form of communication than talking, email, etc.; and I went to AnimeNext last June. 

Questions asked to me:

1. What is your favorite sad song?

Hmm...Tchaikovsky's "The Doll's Funeral" and Khachaturian's "Lyado is Seriously Ill" are both great sad piano pieces.

2. What is your favorite happy movie?

Well, I saw Monsters University recently, and it was great and pretty happy overall, so I guess that's my answer...

3. Do you find yourself using the same color a lot? Which one?

Well, for a project I'm working on, the color themes are gray and a light blue, so I've been using those two colors a lot recently.

4. Do you have a least favorite word?

Hmm...don't think so...

5. Which fictional character (movie/book/game/whatever) would you like to meet?

Well, there;s a book series I like called "Bungaku Shojo", or "Book Girl" in the English releases. It would be nice if I could meet the main character from that series, Konoha. Also, the characters from the "Animorphs" books. And, of course, Crocket from :iconludeshka:'s game, Hierofania(never heard of it? You should check it out-ludeshka.deviantart.com/art/hi…)

6. Have you got an amulet, or a lucky charm?

Well, I kind of collect key necklaces, but I don't really consider them my lucky charms. I don't think I really have a lucky charm, actually.

7. Do you know a line from a book by memory? Write it down!

A couple from "No Longer Human" by Osamu Dazai(Donald Keene's English translation):

"Eat or die, the saying goes, but to me it just seemed like another unpleasant threat."(I don't know why, but this line has always stuck with me.)

"I have seen three pictures of the man."

"He was a good boy; an angel."

"Mine has been a life of much shame."

"He was surrounded by a great many women [in the photo], his sisters and cousins no doubt."

"There is not even the pleasure of recollecting, 'Ah, so that was the kind of face it was'."

"Disqualified as a human being. I had utterly ceased to be a human being."

"It is simply a piece of paper, light as a feather, and it is smiling."

"If my neighbors can live on without killing themselves, without driving themselves mad, without getting involved in political parties,... can their grieves be truly genuine?"

"She died. I was saved."

"Again, I have no idea of the sensation of hunger."

"It was just as well; I was getting quite tired of that school of cherry blossoms by the sea."

"I will be turning 28 in spring. Most people would mistake me for being over 40."

(Wow, I didn't know I had so many lines from "No Longer Human" memorized...)

And a section of "Book Girl and the Suicidal Mime":

"Why? Why are they all crying?... Ah, now everyone's guffawing. I wonder what's so funny. I have no idea. But if I don't do the same as everybody else, they'll think I'm strange and cast me out.

Laugh. Laugh. Laugh. No, cry. Cry. No, laugh, you have to laugh.

If I can't do such a simple thing, I am strange, a freak."

8. Which movie would have a very different ending if you had your way?

SPOILERS for the movie "The Iron Giant".

It would be nice if the giant could live at the end. When I first saw the scene where he sacrificed himself, I cried a little bit. I mean, there's the hope that the giant might be able to build himself back together someday, but still...

9. Is it easy for you to get lost in a city?

Well, if it's a very large city, then probably, because I don't really live in a city at all.

10. What do you do when you can't fall asleep?

If I can't fall asleep because I'm not tired for whatever reason, then I'll stay up until I actually get tired. If I can't fall asleep, but I am tired, then I'll keep trying to fall asleep until I either succeed or fail.

It's kind of funny; if I can't fall asleep, I'll end up thinking about random things, and my thoughts will inevitably (and ironically) keep my awake.

My Questions:
1. What is your favorite TV show?
2. Are you playing any video games a the moment?
3. How fast can you read?
4. Do you like talking walks, riding a bike, etc?
5. What color walls do your have in your room?
6. Have you ever won an award in some sort of competition or the like?
7. Do you prefer cash or a credit card?
8. Do you have a favorite musician?
9. What's your favorite type of candy?
10. Anyone you admire on D.A?

Ok, I'm tagging :iconnvzgirl:. :iconpandorasboxunlocked:, :iconkaorisilvermoon:, :iconinsomniaplague:, :iconbreathkeepsusalive:, :iconinfra-raven:, :iconwicky-kun:, :icon34356534355:, :iconglowingmystery:, and :iconmsira:.

Don't think I need to go to their pages and inform them; the new Mention feature will probably tell them for me.

Hey, thanks for the shout out :giggle:

And hey, which of the Animorphs? (I liked Tobias, the hawk kid, but it was a long time ago, I wonder if I would still think the same.... XD)

Also...

"Why? Why are they all crying?... Ah, now everyone's guffawing. I wonder what's so funny. I have no idea. But if I don't do the same as everybody else, they'll think I'm strange and cast me out.

Laugh. Laugh. Laugh. No, cry. Cry. No, laugh, you have to laugh.

If I can't do such a simple thing, I am strange, a freak."

It is a really intriguing quote, I read it and started wondering what could possibly be happening, and why the character is so desperate to fit in with those weirdoes. O_o

Oh, hey, you liked the Animorphs too? I really liked Rachel and her struggle with the side of her that loved fighting; her stories intrigued me. It would be call to meet Ax too, though. Or Cassie.

As for the quote, the speaker is actually the one that is considered abnormal in the book- the speaker lacks any emotions, so he really doesn't understand why people laugh or cry(this isn't too much of a spoiler for the book, by the way, since it's implied on the first page and stated outright only a couple more pages in). If you can get your hands on the book(Book Girl and the Suicidal Mime by Mizuki Nomura-I read the English translation), I highly recommend it. It's the first in a series, and the translation for the last book comes out in January. I can't wait!
