'We are not acquainted at all. It's just that you always smell of tobacco and powder after seeing him. And I'm sure you don't smoke.'
“…Is that so? Yet it is somehow your knowledge the fact he has a rather prominent beard. You need not to lie. As for what you say, I wonder why is such a thing worth asking about? When you stay close to a person who smokes, it is only natural having the smell stick around…”
sexuality: uh … am i supposed to know ? i guess i’m pretty pan, because i legit just love everyone and anyone.
zodiac sign: gemini !
taken/single: in love with tom holland ?
⭐. one of my many claims to fame is that i auditioned for adrian r'mante ( the guy who plays esteban on suite life of zack and cody – you know that guy ) the day after my senior prom. the monologue was about guitar hero ( lol ) and i honestly had the time of my life because they played the high school musical soundtrack in the waiting room ? didn’t end up doing the program because, well, my parents, but… i got a picture with esteban, so everything’s a - okay.
⭐. i love rice ? i mean, that’s no surprise because i’m filipino, but… rice based desserts, like biko and puto bumbong and mango sticky rice and that sort of thing… those are my most favorite things on the planet. i could eat them forever and ever and be perfectly satisfied – too bad that they’re so hard to come by in my neighborhood in new york !
⭐. explaining where i come from is really hard ? i was born and raised in hong kong for eighteen years, but my parents are both from the philippines too, and now i live ( and am very settled ) in new york, and i’ve spent a lot of time in northern california too… so, i kind of belong to all four places ? i’m a true third - culture kid.
how long: oh, god, like… seven years now ?
platforms used: tumblr only. i know, wow !
best experience: writing with amazing people ! and meeting really great friends. i actually met one of my best friends, kaela, right here on tumblr ! so, you never know ? i’m honestly really happy that i’ve found so many wonderful friends on tumblr.
female or male (or otherwise): I enjoy playing both, but in the past year or so, mj has been my main muse. i have played several males, though, especially in the broadway community !
multi or single: single, for sure ! my mind is too much of a mess to keep up with a multimuse blog, to be honest.
fluff, angst or smut: fluff and angst !! i mean, i like all three, for sure, but i don’t have as much experience with smut ‘cause i’m a real awkward turtle… but mj wants that lovin’, y'know.
plots or memes: i honestly love both ! plotting and yelling about headcanons is my favorite thing in the world, but i also just love getting lots of memes ? plus, memes are super fun !
long/short term replies: long replies, for sure ! i’m all about writing a shitton. i mean, short replies are great too, and they definitely take less time, but… i kind of just tend to write… a lot.
best time to write: whenever i have a moment to myself, honestly, usually with my headphones on and blaring either some random documentary or some broadway cast recordings, because… inspiration.
are you like your muse(s): mj and i are similar in many ways – i mean, we’re both super into musical theatre, we’re both ( at least, in my interpretation of mj ) filipina - american and very proud of it, we’re both pretty feisty, we both have a lot to say. but, mj’s definitely far more confident than me… she’s willing to take more risks ;; she’s unapologetically herself. she’s a lot more daring. we’ve had very different lives and upbringings, too. so, it’s interesting to play mj, because even though we have some similarities, because mj has a lot of qualities that i don’t personally have, and that’s kind of fascinating.
