Nicknames: dre, sille, woof.
Likes: i like animals and people who don't patronize others. i also like open people, and people who aren't afraid to take criticism or stand up for what they believe in. i like my own company most of the time, too, but whether that's a good thing or a bad one, i'm not sure. er. i also like reading and writing, as well as a lot of rock-y music. i like honest people and... archery. it's one of the only things i'm good at. i like drawing, too, but my creativity is usually limited. XD.
Dislikes: racists and homophobics. i don't necessarily dislike people who lie, but i do hate it when you give someone constructive critism and they have a fit. i hate getting up early, and i really don't like being obedient for the sake of being obedient. if my dad tells me to do something and i think i need to do it, okay, i'll do it, but apart from that... nah. i hate being called names, being labelled and otherwise stuck in a group or clique... whatever you want to call them. i don't like rebellion for the sake of rebellion either; just doing it to be "cool" or whatever annoys me.
Hobbies/Interests: archery. sleeping (if you could call that a hobby), drawing, reading. plotting out stories that i'm probably never going to write. relaxing with a movie, or reading.
Special talents: er. probably... helping people, but not in a good way. i suppose you could say i'm so blunt that it pushes people back into reality again. i'm also pretty okay at drawing.
Pet peeves: idiots. i hate people that ask questions, you answer them and then they ask them again and again. i hate it when things break just as i'm about to use them, and when i feel like reading a certain book and then i can't find it. i also hate it when i go to shower and the water's cold, too, which is weird but... oh well.
Strong personality traits: i'm blunt. when it comes to it, i don't care what people think. i like to get on with my life, and i'm also happy to say that i'm independent. i don't follow crowds. i can take critism (although if i think it's unfair and particularly harsh, i bite back) and i stand up for what i believe in. i'm argumentative and i'm also rather sarcastic; i also have a dry sense of humor. i can be laid-back, especially when it comes to work, and if i'm doing something i'm good at, i get confident and somewhat lazy.
Weaker personality traits: i'm stubborn to the point that if me and someone else argue about something, i won't back down. i'm argumentative and i've been described as apathetic. sometimes i'm self-centred and cocky. i get grumpy easily, i have a short temper and i don't like being told what to do. if i don't agree with something, i let that person know (sometimes not in the nicest way possible). if i can't be bothered to do something, i make someone else do it for me, and if i'm really angry, i get aggressive.
Describe yourself in three sentences: i can be nice when i want to be (or when i feel like it), but to some people, i come off as harsh and someone you don't want to be around. when it comes to the people i care about, i will readily step up and defend them, even if they're wrong. i like helping people, although my methods usually come off as trying to get in someone's way, and i can get irritable if someone does something wrong and i think i can do it better.
Favorite Old Kingdom character? Why? has to be... sabriel's father, actually. i like his firm nature and the way he's known as a different person to several people. his readiness to help others, even when his own life is in danger, is something i admire, and i think he's a very likeable character.
Least favorite Old Kingdom character? Why? hm. i would have to say aunt kirrith, only because i felt she was overwhelmingly controlling towards lirael. i understand that she lost her sister and everything (so she - in my view - wanted to stifle lirael's sense of adventure), but i personally think she didn't have to be so... i don't know... 'crushing' about it.

One or the other
Famous or rich? errr. if i had to choose, i'd say rich.
Friends or family? friends.
Night or day? night.
Optimist or pessimist? pessimist.
Leader or follower? a bit of both, but again, if i had to choose, i'd say leader.
Introverted or extroverted? introverted.

Would you use weapons? If so, what kind? yeah, i probably would. i'd have to say i'd enjoy using a charter-infused bow and arrow (only because i can shoot well with them), or your typical sword. if i didn't have anything to fight with, i'd probably use my fists (and my feet) and then run.
If you could have any magical powers, what would you have? probably... the power to control someone else's mind, so i can make them do whatever i want them to.
If you could be any animal, what would you be? Why? i'd probably be a leopard. i like their grace and the way they just... stare at you, as well as their fierce personalities and the way they survive in almost any terrain. they're adaptable; that has to be my favourite trait about them.
If stranded alone on an island, what three things would you need with you? i'd probably take my mp3 player, a few books to read and a tea-making kit.
Would you risk your own life to save someone? it depends on the situation. if it was a good friend of mine, yes, i would, but apart from that... no.
Do you fancy any particular bell? Why? saraneth. binding someone to your will sounds interesting, and i actually like the name of the bell, too. i'm not sure whether i'd use it for "evil" purposes, but if someone hacked me off, i'd bind them to my will and then force them to humiliate themselves as revenge.

i'm about... 5'4", fairly pale skin (but it's got a slight tanned hue to it), muddy brown eyes and light brown hair with natural blonde and brown (and ginger, apparently) highlights. i'm supposed to wear glasses... but i don't.

Which character do you think you'll be stamped as? i'm not sure. i think the touchstone... or hedge, actually.
Where did you hear about us? i googled "abhorsen icons" and got you.
Questions, comments, suggestions? i love your graphics and this community in general. XD. oh, and the reason i haven't got an lj layout is because i'm too lazy (if that bothers you at all; sorry if it does) but i should have one up soon.
