[Gender of your partner:] Either; I’d rather have a match that suits best.
[Link to your regular stamp:] http://community.livejournal.com/gyakus
[Links to four open applications you have voted on:]
[Favourite Character:] Franziska von Karma. Despite the fact that she’s a perfectionist, a child genius and not to mention extremely, extremely stubborn, she’s also very human and easy to empathise with. (And is thus a great trip to write.)
[Favourite Case:] Although this tends to fluctuate, I’ll go with 3-3. It’s basically Phoenix’s Happy Lawyer Times, and although I do love the longer plotty cases like 3-5, cases such as these really let the minor characters shine. Despite how plain exaggerated characters such as Tigre and Armstrong are, they still feel like people and that’s one of Ace Attorney’s greatest strengths as a game. Whenever I replay I actually find this case as unputdownable as 1-4, but for entirely different reasons. 3-3 just makes me laugh so much.
[What Role would you play?] In the Ace Attorney universe? I’d be a more useless witness than Larry Butz. Relationship wise? I’d like to be on equal footing with my partner.
[Likes:] Pretty much everything under the sun. I’m pretty laid back, and am up for whatever anyone wants to do. But, specifically, I like making sure I get as much done every day as humanely possible, (which could contradict with a love of sleeping, but I can sleep anywhere). I also love being in other people’s company, even if I’m not talking to them. I only want to be alone if I’m studying, unless the other person is helping me.
[Dislikes:] There’s very little that I dislike, but time-wasting is a huge one. Of course, I’m a bit of a procrastinator, so, I usually get a bit angry with myself. I also dislike clutter and will be constantly reorganizing things to make the layout of places more ‘effective’. I also dislike popularity contests, mainly because I seem to accidentally suck myself into them.
[Hobbies/Interests:] Playing scrabble, writing fanfiction, following instructions, working hard, studying, sleeping, hanging out with friends, video games, daydreaming, graphic design, drawing (badly), blurting things out at inopportune moments, sitting outside in the sunshine while drinking coffee.
[Strengths:] I place a lot of faith in other people. It takes a lot to earn my true dislike, and I don’t think anyone I’ve ever met in my entire life has ever earned that yet. I’ve yet to be annoyed at someone for more than 15 minutes at a time. I can be happy pretty much anywhere, anytime, as long as someone is not trying to interfere with my right to be happy by restraining me with useless rules and regulations.
[Weaknesses:] I sometimes trust people too much. I have a rather short temper, and tend to get angrier over the little bumps in life’s way. Whenever any big changes happen, I can take them in my stride, but when the day is not going like I imagined I can get a bit irritated. This irritation usually only lasts a little while until I adapt to the situation, and then become happy again. I also have a bad habit of blaming my shortcomings on other people, and am horrible at getting things finished by a love of taking on too many new projects. I can also get overwhelmed very easily, especially when there’s a lot of things that I have to do on my to do list, but it’s so extensive that I don’t know where to start. I’m horrible at prioritising. When it comes to other people, I often make the mistake of feeling inferior or superior to them instead of just plain equal.
[Outgoing or Shy:] More outgoing than shy.
[Dominant or Submissive:] Dominant.
[Most important thing about them in a relationship:] They need to inspire me to fulfil my potential. I’m the type of person who is reluctant to do anything unless someone encourages me to do so, and I need someone who can push me towards my own goals even when I don’t explicitly state them. I need that support, but I can also supply it in return.
[What role would they play?] In the AA world? Hrm. Maybe a prosecutor? In a relationship? The equal footing thing again; I need someone I feel on the same level on.
[Outgoing or Shy:] Outgoing.
[Dominant or Submissive:] Dominant.
[The both of you:]
[What would you relationship be like?] As you may have noticed, both myself and preferred partner are dominant people. This is because I’d like to think that we’re capable of leading our own lives, but are able to mutually share our troubles when we need to. I don’t like clingy people (can’t stand them), and I don’t like being dependant on anyone else. They’d have an independent life, but be willing to share it with me, and I would the same in return. We’d be able to know what the other is thinking most of the time without having to say it, but we’d also know when these things have to be discussed. But basically, the relationship would be like that of a very, very close friend with the romantic/exclusive angle.
[If you were convicted of a crime, how would your partner react?] I’d hope they’d agree with my point of view on the situation (whether I believed myself guilty or not), but if they want to fight for me or not? Ultimately their decision, but I can’t say I’d be too happy with them if the conviction was undeserved and they didn’t even try to support me.
[If your partner was convicted of a crime, how would you react?] I’d fight for them; I don’t want to think that anyone I could have trusted to that extent would have betrayed me in that manner by being tied up in crime and if they were guilty? I’d pretty much consider the relationship unsalvageable at that point in time as I don’t like criminals and I’d pretty much feel betrayed.
[Who would defend them?] Phoenix Wright! But uh, failing that, I’d do it myself if I had to.
Nothing more to add but to wish you the best of luck in choosing my match! ;D
