Favourite drink: A Kungaloosh (I'll be impressed if anyone knows what it is or where it comes from...heh)
Favourite flower: I don't really have a favorite, but I enjoy roses, carnations, sakura, and irises. Whatever looks good in an arrangement, basically.

Country you'd most like to visit: Japan is my favorite, but for someplace I haven't been, I'd say Paris (not so much interested in France as I am in Paris specifically).
Extrovert or introvert? Extrovert. In the extreme.

Quote a lyric or line of poetry: This was the hardest section, actually, since a hobby of mine is collecting beautiful lines. But I found this one recently, and really liked it, so I'll go with it.

"No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel
trust and reverence. What loneliness is more lonely than distrust?"

-George Eliot

Note for the photographs: I don't have any "normal" photos of me online, so I hope it's okay if my pictures are cosplay. I picked shots were my costumes didn't obscure my face too much so it wouldn't be a pointless exercise...

  Name: Vivian
Age: 18
Date of birth: Jan. 23
Place of birth: Toronto, Canada

Philosophy, the paranormal, anime and manga (Juuni Kokki, X, Kyou Kara Maou, Peacemaker Kurogane, Last Exile, Fruits Basket, Tactics, Honey and Clover, Getbackers, Prince of Tennis, Earth Girl Arjuna), fantasy, music, beautiful and elegant things, metaphors/symbolism, elves (Tolkien version), myths and legends, languages, poetry, anything else that happens to be sufficiently interesting...
Ignorance, politicians, narrow-mindedness, boredom,stagnancy, rudeness, pessimism, being ignored, not having enough time, being ordered around, strong offensive odours (such as cigarette smoke and some perfumes), loud distracting noises...
My best qualities are probably my wisdom, open-mindedness, and calm, observant nature. Because of this, people tend to seek me out for advice and comfort whenever they have problems. Well, I must say that being able to help people like this makes me feel really happy inside. ^__^
My weakest points--> contradictory nature (ex. hardworking but lazy, modest but arrogant), tendency to procrastinate, indecisiveness --__--;;
Greatest achievement:
My philosophy essay. XD I spent about half a year last year pondering over it and I have to say that I am quite pleased with the final result. (and I should be, I spent so long working on it! *coughs*'twas half a year of pondering, while actually writing it took the few days just before it was due...>.>) If you are curious, you can read it here-->The Singular, Infinite Universe

Favourite character:
Naoji. I find him to be the most interesting and beautiful of the Meine Liebe characters. He just seems so calm, and ethereal with a certain touch of sorrowfulness...very mysterious and enchanting. I am also fascinated with his loyalty and closeness to Lui. (hehe...I tend to have a thing for master/servant-like pairings. ^^;;)
Character that you don't want to be rated as (optional):
None. Just rate me as whoever you think I am most like. :)
Favourite book:
My absolute favourite book is the Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien. If you look at my "likes", I think it would become quite obvious why I love this book so much. Elves, timeless fairytale-like stories, beauty, fantasy...*getting nostalgic*
Favourite colour:
I can like all colours depending on what the colours are on...but I guess if I had to choose, then black, white, red, silver, and all shades of blue and green.
Favourite drink:
Water (clean, pure water.), orange juice, and tea of all kinds. :)
Favourite flower:
I adore sakura blossoms, so elegantly beautiful and haunting....
Favourite season:
If there were any real seasons I'd say spring... (-__- weather is so messed up nowadays...)
Country you'd most like to visit:
I can't choose between Japan and New Zealand. >__< Japan just has such a rich culture full of quirkiness, charm, and amusement, while New Zealand is such a beautiful natural paradise...*___* Both countries have so much to explore...
Extrovert or introvert?
Introverted. I'm not exactly as shy now as I was before, but I prefer to keep to myself most of the time rather than getting involved with other people. People...*shakes head* most of them have too many silly arguments, messy relationships, and childish drama going on...I'd much rather stay on the side watching them (they can be amusing at times) or just minding my own business...
Quote a lyric or line of poetry:
"Man, know thyself." by Socrates. Simple yet profound, this quote contains the most important piece of advice for people to gain wisdom. Wisdom of course is needed in order for the world to be rid of its worst aspects...ignorance, close-mindedness, hate, stupidity... There's also one other quote that I really, really like, but is more difficult for people to grasp:
"when man becomes aware of the movement of his own thoughts, he will see the division between the thinker and the thought [...] He will discover that this division is an illusion. Then only is there pure observation, which is insight without any shadow of [...] time. This timeless insight brings about a deep radical mutation in the mind" --J. Krishnamurti. The true meaning of this quote has just began revealing itself to me within the past two years and is quite rapidly taking over my life....o.o . Let me just say, that this quote was life-changing in a way...it's very difficult to explain...

  Name: Cheron.
Age: 16.
Date of birth: 07/10/88.
Place of birth: With much skepticism, San Bernardino, California. But it’s possible that I was born in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

Likes: History, military uniforms, aquatic organisms, oceans, zoology, cephalopods, desolate beaches, aquariums, revenge, peace & quiet, travel, hentai, horror, gore, bizzare art, mutual understanding, criminology, forensic science, sweets.

Strengths: Completing projects shortly before due dates, working alone.
Weaknesses: Arguments, public speaking, anger/emotion, mathematics, athletics, and I often always procrastinate.

Favourite character: Unsure.

Favourite book: I don’t really have a favorite title, but I recently developed a fascination with WW2(especially Nazi Germany), so any textbook or writings based on that. I really need to read Mein Kampf sometime.
Favourite colour: Black, red, earthtones.
Favourite drink: Yakult, pina coladas, tropical fruit juices(mango and lychee), Thai iced tea, grass jelly drinks, tea and coffee drinks.
Favourite flower: Don’t know. There is one specie that I do not know the name of; it is quite large, and very red/orange. I like venus fly traps, though!

mood: curious
Name: yon_yun
Age: 15
Date of birth: December 12, 1989
Place of birth: New York

Likes: 1) reading, 2) writing, 3) music, 4) art, specifically painting and architecture, 5) math, but only certain areas--I dislike imaginary numbers and probability, 6) physics, 7) biology, 8) anime, 9) manga, 10) The Sandman Series (written by Neil Gaiman), 11) logic puzzles (I think they're called 'matrixes'), 12) any quiet place near/on water: beaches where I don’t have to look at the ground constantly to avoid stepping on sunbathers, the banks of rivers and streams, canoeing on lakes, etc., 13) rain
Dislikes: 1) loud noises, 2) strong scents of any kind; it applies equally, whether it's copious amounts of perfume or a garbage dump, 3) bright colors, 4) crowds, 5) bright lights
Strengths: I’d like to think that through all of my faults, when things get bad enough, I’m able to step back and look at the big picture realistically. According to several other acquaintances, I also have a wry sense of humor that emerges solely during crappy situations.
Weaknesses: Ah, no matter how well I answer this, it will definitely come out biased. One’s worst traits are those that she doesn’t even realize she has: 1) tactlessness, 2) explosive temper that has built up over months, 3) procrastination, 4) stubbornness, 5) difficulty relating to people, nor do I usually have the patience to even try, 6) difficulty working in groups or on teams, 7) stuck in my ways; I’m a creature of habit to the extreme and I usually dislike change, 8) I hate apologizing… I’ll do it, but probably not in a direct way
Greatest achievement: Well, supposedly, from the time I was in 6th or 7th grade I had to ability to produce essays that, according to the English teachers, could have been considered college-level. My current English teacher says I have the ‘Midas touch’ when it comes to writing. Oo; I’m still dubious about that, but if they weren’t perversely lying to me, then I’d like to think that throughout the years I’ve improved my writing greatly, and that the skill will eventually aid me in whatever career I choose.

Favourite character: none
Character that you don't want to be rated as (optional): The headmaster, and Beruze. I don't want to think that I'm, mentally, that 'old' yet. Besides, god forbid I miss out on the wonders of midlife crisis.

Favourite book: An even tie between: 1) Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire, 2) Elric of Melniboné by Michael Moorcock
Favourite colour: Black, white, and gray--but if you don’t consider those colors, since they’re achromatic, then I also favor dark purples and blues.
Favourite drink: Fruit juice? When it’s cold out, hot chocolate or tea with honey.
Favourite flower: The lotus, as well as the other water flowers.
Favourite season: winter
Country you'd most like to visit: Italy, or perhaps a region in Australia
Extrovert or introvert? With people I don’t know, I’m introverted. I’m more comfortable around friends. I seem to feel most at home around a select few adults, which I also deem to be friends--the only downside is the thought that when one of your friends is eighty-something, and you’re fifteen, it’s pretty much guaranteed (unless you’re stupid or extremely unlucky) that you’ll have to go to his/her funeral someday…

Quote a lyric or line of poetry: “I, while the gods laugh, the world’s vortex am / Maelstrom of passions in that hidden sea / Whose waves of all-time lap the coasts of me /
And in small compass the dark waters cram.”--Mervyn Peake

Photographs: Sorry, no scanner.

mood: curious
Name: Dana
Age: 16
Date of birth: September 6
Place of birth: A hospital? Gasp.

Likes: Anime rating communities :3 (Which might mean, "overusing smilies"). Yaoi/shounen-ai/slash. Mockery, sarcasm, and generally making stupid jokes (see "place of birth" for details). Roleplaying. Writing both original stuff and fanfiction. Wasting time. And then roleplaying some more.
Dislikes: People with no respect for others, with closed minds, and who dunt no how 2 typ or spel. Ah, yes! And people who misuse apostrophe's.
Strengths: I'd like to say that I'm creative and that I write well, but I'd also like to say that I can leap tall buildings in a single bound and fly. I'm just going by what people tell me (in the case of the former and not the latter, of course).
Weaknesses: I can't talk about myself without worrying if I sound too self-centered. I'm too nervous about the opinions of others when I know I shouldn't be.
Greatest achievement: ninjafy. It's like my baby, if you ignore the fact that I don't like little kids. ^^;;;;

Favourite character: Ludwig. I hate to love him, but I can't help it. Though I disagree with his strict attitude, I understand the reason that people believe that's the way things should be, and because of that, I can't just hate him for what he says. He attracts people to him, and that's also admirable. I really like the way he handled the engagement situation at the end of that episode, too. Each character is likeable for different reasons, but Lui just stands out.
Character that you don't want to be rated as (optional): A character that doesn't exist.

Favourite book: Heh... The Animorphs series holds a special place in my heart, despite the fact that it's not as well-written or "mature" as others. The Golden Age trilogy by John C. Wright is awesome on so many different levels.
Favourite colour: Different shades of blue and green.
Favourite drink: Pepsi
Favourite flower: I...don't really like flowers. ._.
Favourite season: Autumn. Despite the fact that school starts, of course. I like it more because of how everything looks, feels, smells, and other poetic things that I can't describe for my life.
Country you'd most like to visit: Japan, because I'm silly and immature and think that, just because I love a few aspects of a culture, I'll have a grand old time. Please note the sarcasm.
Extrovert or introvert? Depends on the situation and the people I'm with. If I'm alone in a room full of complete strangers, I'll keep to myself, lurk around and watch people for a while before attempting a conversation. But if I'm with my friends, or in a crowd of similar-minded people... "Introvert? What's that?"

Quote a lyric or line of poetry: "Did you ever have the feeling / You're the only person living in the world / And people that you see / Are one-dimensional and never there at all" (Al Stewart - Real and Unreal)

  Name: Finferwen
Age: 21
Date of birth: 7th February, 1984
Place of birth: rural New South Wales, Australia

Likes: Books, my laptop, my close friends, being left to myself, bad 80's music, Britcoms (particularly Red Dwarf and Blackadder) and political theory - no, I'm not making it up. It's my double-major. >.<;
Dislikes: People who are so extroverted they make my poor ears hurt, stupidity, unwarranted criticism, anything cooked "rare", cyclic arguments, ignorance, facades, other people touching my hair, reality TV and popular fashion. Inane and farcial things, basically.
Strengths: The ability to be totally singleminded towards an objective and loyalty are the best I can come up with. I'm not good at pointing out my own attributes.
Weaknesses: Again, singlemindedness. I can be fairly heartless at times. Procrasination...
Greatest achievement: I'm not sure. Probably getting away from the place I was born, coming to university and finding people who accept and like me for who I am.

Favourite character: I like a lot of characters for different reasons - I like Orphe for his loyalty, I feel sad for Ed when he gets ridiculed for things out of his control, I like Naoji's common sense and Ludwig's...alright, I like his hair.
Character that you don't want to be rated as (optional):

Favourite book: Again, I have a lot of favourites. I like One Fine Day in the Middle of the Night by Christopher Brookmyre - it's fantastic black humour, but I also have soft spots for Anne Rice's Tale of the Body Thief and Machiavelli's The Prince (again, I'm not making it up. That book has gotten me out of so many essay-related scrapes I feel obligated to mention it) because I never worked out if the whole thing was genuine advice or a giant piece of satire.
Favourite colour: Gray.
Favourite drink: ...Portello (grape flavoured soft drink).
Favourite flower: Dutch irises.
Favourite season: Definitely winter. Where I am now, winter blankets the valley in clouds and the wind blows straight off the snowfields. In the morning when you look out the window, the entire place is shimmering and white and it's kind of frigidly beautiful. A couple of hours later and the frost is gone, and it's just gloomy and cold. But at least you don't get sunburnt.
Country you'd most like to visit: Just to be totally impossible, I'll specify a timeframe: I'd love to have seen Russia in the mid 1800's. I'd also love to have been around when the Haghia Sophia (in Kiev) was still covered with gold.
Extrovert or introvert? Definitely and undeniably introverted. As much as I adore my friends, sometimes I get drained by contact and people who yell make me angry and unhappy.

Quote a lyric or line of poetry: "Save only me, there is none left to mourn thee in the fields." - My Butterfly, Robert Frost

Photographs: I'm sorry, but my scanner is about 600km away and I don't have a digital camera. (You're not missing much, just trust me. ~_^)

  Hi everyone! Welcome! We've just had our first two members stamped, but we're still waiting for a few more votes for others. For now, I've put the vote count at five before someone can be stamped, but that's sure to be increased once more people join.

So, right now, please add your vote to these applications:

Some of these I'm prepared to stamp anyway very soon simply because the majority are in agreement. However, I think it's nice to get more responses, so I'm leaving them open a little longer where they'll hopefully get the minimum of five votes.

Thank you for being so good about voting so far, and please remember to keep being so!

mood: giddy
Name: Mary. A general name, sadly.
Age: 16.
Date of birth: December 23, 1988.
Place of birth: Orange, California.

Likes: In people, I admire the quiet, oddball types. The one’s who are abnormal in ways you can’t depict. You know, the one’s who sit alone at lunch, with the weird interests and are picked on for it. Generally, I’m interested in film/movies, paranormality, femininity, writing, drawing, literature, learning, EGA fashion, intellects, elegance, science, garage rock and j-rock bands. Anime, manga, and all that good stuff as well…
Dislikes: Aggressiveness. Extroverts. People who don’t bother to learn. People who don't bother to try. Uncleanliness. The color red. Dishonesty. Sports.
Strengths: I’m independent and determined. I suppose I’m deep, that’s what many claim at least. I have a good sense of humor. Like, the type of humor that’s a bit nonsensical, so it’s funny. Um. I’m also creative and passionate about things. I speak/write eloquently. I'm a daydreamer, always thinking rather than speaking, creating new stories with my imagination.
Weaknesses: I’m too modest of myself and pessimistic about life. I stress out easily, and I’m self-critical, as well as self-conscious. I have a low level of confidence, where the criticism and stress comes from as well… I’m also physically weak.
Greatest achievement: Well, erm. … Okay, now I know it’s time to get out there and do something with my life. xD I suppose I’m glad I’ve been able to gain the friends that I have, as I used to be the local outcast while growing up. Although I hated it in my younger years, I much prefer to be solitary now. I sort of need it.

Favourite character: Isaac, Orpherus.
Character that you don't want to be rated as (optional): You can place me as any character you decide. [Although my least favorite is Eduard. But if that's who you so choose...]

Favourite book: Ring by Kozi Suzuki. Or the Abhorsen series by Garth Nix.
Favourite colour: [Dark]Blue. [Dark]Green. Burgundy. Black. White.
Favourite drink: Icee’s. :3 Or any form of a slushie. Teas are good too.
Favourite flower: White roses.
Favourite season: Winter.
Country you'd most like to visit: I would looove to travel many times in my life. Japan, Spain, England, or any tropical regions are a definite.
Extrovert or introvert? Introvert, very much so. Although, if I’m approached, I’ll be friendly with the person. A bit crazy with close people though.

Quote a lyric or line of poetry: “The master and his servant have exactly the same fate. It's a sunrise and a sunset. From a cradle to a casket. There is no way to escape.” Sunrise, Sunset by Bright Eyes

Hope this was fine. :3 A question for the mod/creator as well! Are the "stamps" going to be on hold until a certain number of members comment, or after a period of time, or etc.? Excellent community as well, I do say.
