That seems a little too virulent so like don’t worry about the tagging thing unless you wanna. Honestly you don’t even have to answer the questions. ilu.

1. name your favorite fairy tale by aarne-thompson type if you’ve got it or failing that by a vague and wobbly summary.
My absolute favorite, which I could not find in the ATU index, is a substory from Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins wherein Hershel offers pickles to a demon and the demon gets stuck and Hershel is like “I will tell you the secret if you let me light the hanukkiyah” and the demon is like “FINE WHATEVER YOU WANT” and Hershel is like “dude just take one pickle; you’re stuck because you tried to take? all of them? what is that even”
2. do you have synaesthesia?
I do not!
3. have you ever seen  a ghost? you yourself, not someone you knew.
Never seen a ghost but when I was five my babysitter tried to show me magic that I was unable to replicate later for my parents, and we were threatened by a GI Joe action figure once so that was kind of a ghost but I feel like my mental stats were too low as a kid to become a plasticmancer and my greatest regret in life is not asking her, when she visited my mom 15 years later, if all the things I remembered actually happened because what if?? What if magic is real and I could have done it. I failed the test. Never going to Brakebills now.
4. aliens: Would you?
I think a better question is “which aliens: wouldn’t I?” and like okay thinking harder about it there are certain, like, Things that would be massive turnoffs to, ahem, Diplomatic Entanglements, ahem, but like for example Alternian/Beforan trolls yes Klingons yes Vulcans only if they’re halfsies Hutts no Toydarians solid maybe tentacle monsters depends on texture & secretions Twileks sure Na'vi no mulefa no Andalites no Yeerks tentative yes Hork-Bajir mmyes Taxxons no Skrit yes Na no Chee in a hEARtbeat Ketrans hell no the moon-sized brain coral that trapped the Ellimist for several years yes Leerans no voidf
5. do you have a favorite way to do your nails like all the same color or alternating or designs or what?
My favorite way to do my nails is NO WAY BECAUSE NAIL LACQUER IS A TRANSGRESSION BEFORE THE NAME but nah really it’s just that the idea of something on my nails that is not nails is sensory hell, to the point where I feel uncomfortable looking at other people with painted nails
6. what’s the longest you’ve ever gone without showering (doing something cool like camping for three weeks or something doesn’t count)
Hahahahahaha um I would say 2 weeks tops? My mean time-to-shower has like. quadrupled over the last few years.
7. how many languages can you say dirty words in? & what are they?
Russian, Arabic, English, French, wanna say German but I am like a little baby and can’t remember any rn
8. who’s your most embarrassingly transparent favorite character who like Shaped you in a mortifying way? double points for homestuck
Oh dear okay Karkat is like…my most embarrassingly transparent self-insert bc she’s shouty and also a terrible egg baby and hates herself but in a really admiring way; character I was most embarrassingly Shaped by is…probably Marten from Questionable Content…bc he was chill at a time when I really needed to learn to be chill……ugh okay next
9. what’s the worst internet phenomenon you’ve ever had to explain to a family member?
Uhhhh honestly my parents don’t ask questions about memes or discourse but one time I described playing Smear the Q**** with the [redacted] Scouts and my dad was like “UM you do know that’s a slur for gay people right?” and I was like “wait wtf BEN EARLE WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU” so that was the worst thing I have ever explained to a family member
10. how bad is your handwriting? bonus points for posting a picture of it.
CAN’T SEEM TO POST THE PICTURE I MADE FOR THIS but yeah my handwriting is 95% legible to me and 20% legible to a surprising number of people. It is very tall and skinny.
11. did he turn his hat around backwards?
He Inverted The Direction Of His Head Adornment

2. If you’re autistic or an autism cousin, what’s an echo you have been fond of recently?
3. Which Carly Rae Jepsen song makes you feel the gayest? If you are unfamiliar with her body of work, which song in general makes you feel the gayest?
4. Give yourself a good good epithet. For instance, I am Lulavet, Mistress of the Endless Night! Get it cuz I don’t sleep ever.
5. Have you ever done a scavenger hunt? If yes, tell me the most memorable clue. If no, make up a scavenger hunt clue!
6. You’re in a desert walking along in the sand. You look down and you see a tortoise. It’s crawling towards you. You reach down and flip the tortoise on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs, trying to turn itself over - but it can’t. Not without your help. But you’re not helping. Why is that?

Fairy Tales; 12 Dancing Princesses

At the height of prohibition, 12 daughters from a straight politician sneak out every night to go to the speakeasies. When he asks for the public’s help, their shoemaker decides he can figure out the mystery.  Getting their Father’s agreement, he follows them to underground hideaways all run by the same crime boss. He starts to realize there is more going on than even the girls may realize, and it may be up to him and their youngest sister to save them.

im sitting in the parking lot at dollar general listening to the CD from region band this year with the windows down and this dude just gave me a “why are you listening to the star spangled banner” look. it’s ART, hoe
