A brief insight into a non traditional relationship, and the hardships that accompany them.
Vampire: Someone offers you a chance at immortality. Do you take it, and why or why not?
Dear god, no. I have no desire to extend my life. There is peace in decomposing and giving your energy back to the world. I can’t imagine forcing myself through centuries and centuries of societal norms. I can’t imagine the sort of person I would be; certainly not the same one as any of the memories that make me who I am would assuredly fade and be replaced. What is the point of prolonged existence? I am no scholar. I do not over estimate my importance in this world. I am content to die when my body gives out beneath me.
Werewolf: If you had to spend your life with just one person, who would it be?
The one I am with now.
Witch: If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
I wonder. I think I’d balance it, if I could. So that no one would have to worry about survival. If an equilibrium could be found, that would be best. Homeostasis.
Ghost: Do you have any regrets?
Yes. I constantly regret taking what I have for granted. I guilt myself into believing that I am far better off than most, but I can’t help but wonder what might make me happier. All the while this underlying reasoning assures me that even if I changed everything in my life, I will grow accustomed to it and it will be the same as it is now. Ultimately, I like consistency and stability and I regret that I am so fickle a person.
Frankenstein: Is someone telling you how to live your life, or are you an independent person?
My life is driven by societal norms. In that respect, I have very little control over my life. I graduated high school, went to college, got engaged. I rent an apartment. I work retail. I suppose no one tells me to do any of this… but the other options are far too radical for my liking. I’m no interested in swimming against the current, but I find myself dissatisfied regardless.
Mummy: If you were to fall into an eternal sleep, do you think anyone would miss you?
I think some might, although I also think that they would feel a bit relieved.
Zombie: Do you miss anyone right now?
No, anyone I could possibly miss is little more than a few keystrokes away.
Faerie: If you could get away with anything, what would you do?
I would not pay for living expenses. I would take the money I earned and put it towards experiences, so that I might look back on my life more fondly that I might have done otherwise.
Nymph: What are you like when you’re by yourself?
Mermaid: How far would you go to keep the one you love?
I would be nothing more than myself. If they require more, then they should look elsewhere.
Shapeshifter: What would you change about yourself?
Nothing. This is a game drowning in self deprecation and I won’t play it.
Banshee: If you knew one of your loved ones/best friends had only one day left to live, how would you spend that last day with them?
I wouldn’t presume that I was the person they wanted to spend their last day with. It would change, depending on the person. Most of my friends live a long ways away. If it was their last day I would fly to see them, regardless of how much it would cost me.
Siren: If you could make anyone do anything, what would you make them do?
I wouldn’t. I certainly wouldn’t want someone forcing me into anything.
Genie: If you had one wish that would come true and couldn’t be reversed, what would you ask for?
I would wish, perhaps, to have a more direct sense of purpose. It is so awful to be faced with such an opportunity only to not know what you want.
Fury: What is a word/phrase that you dread to hear?
I’m not sure I have one of those.
Incubus: What would someone have to do to get in your pants?
Get me drunk, most likely.
Succubus: What’s one thing you can’t live without?
