Hey everyone! Finally got back from vacation! And while I'm working towards my vacation post, I thought I'd post this tag that I was given while away! :)
I was tagged by Shaak Ti at "The Artist Alchemist"
1. What was your favorite childhood TV show?: I was more of a movie kid when I was younger, but I did love PBS shows growing up(I didn't get into TV until I was in my tweens). I do remember watching FRIENDS with my parents as a kid, though
2. What song makes you think of that character who's death you'll never get over?: The song "Shattered" and "I'm Still Here" make me sad since they remind me not only of Obi-Wan losing Anakin to the darkside, but they also remind me of a time I was really sad in my own life.
3. What is your current favorite fandom?: Attack on Titan, The Hobbit, or Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
4. Is there a character that you have many similarities, though you may not like them as a character?: Characters I have similarities with are- Obi-Wan Kenobi, Siri Tachi, Anakin Skywalker, Zuko, Edward Elric, Hermione Granger, Jaina Solo, Tahiri Veila, Ferus Olin, Armin Arlert, Mikasa Ackerman, Sasha Braus, etc.
5. What book have you read that you really liked, even though you expected to not like it so much?: Harry Potter, Les Miserables, A Drowned Maiden's Hair, and The House of the Scorpion.
6. What song makes you think of 2012?: "Call Me Maybe" I guess since that song was so popular back then.
7. Is there a character that you grew up with? (such as how some people grew up with Harry Potter): I have several, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, Siri Tachi, Jaina Solo, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Luke Skywalker, Annabeth Chase, Gregor(Underland chronicles), Buffy Summers, Sam Gamgee, and Hermione Granger.
8. Which book is more loved- the one that is years old but in almost perfect condition, or the one that looks like it's traveled the world and just barely holding together?: I think both are!
9. Which of your favorite characters has the most tragic back story?: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Frodo Baggins, Zuko, Armin Arlert, Buffy Summers, The Doctor, Rose Tyler, Captain Jack Harkness, Donna Noble, Harry Potter, Siri Tachi, Jaina Solo, Ferus Olin, Dean Winchester, etc.
10. What books are you looking forward to reading?: "The Blood of Olympus" definitely! :D Some others include- the Ender Shadow series, Faking Normal, Death Star, Thrawn trilogy, Children of Hurin, The Summer I Wasn't Me, Death in Venice, Eye of the Labyrinth, Gone Gone Gone, Teeth, Huntress, Fangirl, Fault Line, Freedom, Raven Boys, and the rest of the Torch Keeper trilogy. Also, the various classics I want to read.
This week, while I was on vacation, the teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies was finally released. And boy was it GOOD! :D I seriously cannot wait for this movie. The trailer is beautiful- the usage of "Edge of Night" was perfect for the tone of the film and I loved the foreshadowing in the trailer(especially if you've read the book and no what happens). Can't wait to return to Middle Earth one last time.
