What are you wearing right now: Black yoga pants, old Nike running shirt, my mom’s old shawl. All black.

Just about covers all the games I play :P Fictional books is a VERY long list!!
How Many Blankets Do you Sleep With: One. I never get this question xD
Dream Job: Saving the poor/destitute/forgotten/helpless in some way.
Board games, video games or tabletop games?: Video games take priority - the stories offered by some games really feed my creativity. But board-games are great for bonding with friends and family xD
Do you have any OCs? If yes, talk about a couple of them!: I’ll just talk about my main OC: Jehan Ara, aka “The Captain.” She’s someone who arrange Kenshi escape with Takeda to the Shirai Ryu base. Lost her family in an insignificant Oni attack - and shortly thereafter realized she has self-healing abilities - meaning she can’t die (much to her own dismay). She has a lifechanging experience during the Kargil war that makes her wary of everything around her, esp her role in the Army - and eventually goes on to become a UN Peacekeeper. Hard, tough as nails, quiet, authoritative - get’s the job done. But has with very deep insights on what it means to be on the battlefield, and the need to protect people and secure they’re rights. She’s done it all, the blood and grit of war - buried her dead fellow soldiers and friends, physically stuffed the innards of her team member in their abdomen as they retreated it to base, mingled with locals, formed friendships with young children, etc. Has a soft corner for the Kombat Kids, though you would never know from the way she trains them. Excellent markswoman, fills in for any downed snipers.
But yeah, I have great plans for her in my next fic… WHEN I get to it xD May even help me write my own book at some point.
One thing you wish was canon in a fiction story/fandom?: I wish they’d have shown Kenshi’s remorse in leaving Takeda with Hanzo.. and Takeda’s struggle to accept him after they reunite (yeah, that reunion scene was OK. But not enough to flesh both the chars out). There are so many more for MKX (which sucked in storytelling imo).
AND I WISH THEY’D HAVE SHOWN THAT KURTIS LIVED. OR JUST FINISHED THE AOD TRILOGY :’(
Favourite thing to draw/ write about/ think about?: Kenshi/Takeda as a father-son duo. :) Lartis is extremely fun too :)
The strangest song you like (and a link to it if possible!): Axel F Crazy Frog. You don’t need a link xD
A book/story/fanfiction you read recently and would recommend (doesn’t have to be fiction): Read whatever @hell-on-training-wheels @therealpoesdaughter @the-06 @iceangelmkx @obelisk-of-light @kumulonimbus @prblitz @tcmbraider @shockapella-sweet @what-does-the-foxy-say write :)
