En attendant, voilà mon interview par kaiousei :
1: What are all of the fandoms you love and write for?
All??? It will be very long.
I wrote and read a lot of Full Metal Alchemist fics lately. :-)
My other anime fandoms include Slayers (even if I never really wrote one - one day I will), Hôshin Engi, Utena, Trigun, Count Cain, Bleach, Princess Tutu, Death Note. And, more rarely, I can read or try to write about Kenshin, Noir or Yu yu hakusho. I read a lot of Hikaru no go, X, and Gundam wing, and a little Cowboy bebop, Evangelion, Lain, Berserk, Angel sanctuary, Yami no matsuei, Digimon or Naruto fics, but I never wrote about these series.
I love mythological fandoms, even if I only wrote for the judeo-christian one for now (I hope this way of taking it doesn't offend you) and a very AU arthurian legend. I love also reading and writing fairy tales and even fics about fairy tales.
I read and wrote a lot about Buffy and Tolkien. I read and even wrote some Harry Potter, too, I resisted a long time "No! I don't want to write for something which is not even finished!" but I finally gave up.
I love reading Gaiman fandoms : Sandman, Neverwhere, Good omens, but I don't feel able to write in them.
I had a big time reading X-men fics, after the movies, but I never wrote one either.
(I said it. I said it. It was too long.)
2: You live in France, right? What inspired you to learn English? (Even though you're sooo much better at it than a lot of people who've been speaking it their whole lives.)
I learned English in high school, like a lot of French students. I was very bad at it. I only learnt a few gramar rules, the words just didn't want to be remembered.
I only discovered it afterthat, on the Internet, when it couldn't anymore be useful for mu studies. :-) My progression was :
Song lyrics - computer games (like nethack or adom) - pages about roleplaying games - pages about mythology - fanfics
And I learnt English, little by little. The next step should be HP6.
3: What is that thing on your avatar? She's cute, but... what is it?
She's a Nocker girl...
Do you know the role-playing game "Changeling : the dreaming" (not on computer. RPG with table, chairs, dices and paper). It is from the World of Darkness collection, the same who did the game "Vampire : the Masquerade", inspired by Ann Rice books. Changeling is one of the less popular games of this editor, and my favorite. In it, you play half-fairies half-humans creatures who must live like humans, in our world, and not letting dreaming and imagination die.
Nockers are a kind of fairies, sort of gnomes. Their ancertors lived in mine galleries. They like technology, especially when it's flashy and/or not very useful. More for the beauty if the mechanics. Nockers are not supposed to be very beautiful. They have a bid red nose and very long eyebrows. But this pic is an official pic of a Nocker bu Tony DiTerlizzi (I love his works!) and, in my opinion, she is beautiful, though accordingly to the description.
So, in one of my games in which I was the Storyteller, I created a Nocker character based on this picture. her name was Nelja. She became more and more important, dated the Troll of the group, and I loved her a lot. When I searched for a pseudonyme (my true name was already taken), her name came to me. And I illustrated with a picture of her. :-)
4: What kind of music do you listen to? Reccomend some french music to me!
I love particularly rock, folk and celtic music.
Do you know a little French? Just to know whether the lyrics must count in what I will recommand...
My favorite French group is Noir Desir. Very cool music, very poetic lyrics. Especially their first albums.
Do you know Yann Tiersen? He made the BO for movies like "Amelie" (Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain" in French) or "Goodbye Lenin". His music is often purely instrumental, celtic-inspired, and very beautiful.
5: Say your ear broke off in a freak biking accident in Russia, and some random chicken thought it was really cool, so he asked for it so he could send it to his girlfriend in America - would you eat his eggs?
No. I'd keep them and raise my own lineage of talking chickens.
