The Infinity Dreams Award

I was nominated for The Infinity Dreams award by Savannah from A Scattering of Light. Thank you, Savannah! (Her blog is great, guys, you should all go check it out.)

{ Rules }

1. Thank and follow the blog that nominated you.
2. Tell us 11 facts about yourself.
3. Answer the questions that were set for you to answer.
4. Nominate 11 2 bloggers and set questions for them.

{ 11 Facts About Me }

1. My hair is 43 inches long, incredibly thick, and is comprised of probably every hair color there is excepting black. It looks more blonde in the summer, more brown in the winter, and occasionally it somehow looks bright auburn.

2. Elsa from Frozen is the closest any fictional character has ever come to representing me in fiction.

3. To my shame, I have not read the Lord of the Rings, even though the movies are my life and the Hobbit is my favorite novel.

4. My favorite kind of candy is exceptionally dark chocolate.

5. I don’t really care for amusement parks. (Disneyland being an exception.)

6. I’m a Highly Sensitive Person, or HSP.

7. Eeyore is my spirit animal. Some people are a lion, or a wolf, but I am a depressed, sawdust-stuffed donkey.

8. I was sick two weeks ago, was almost getting over it, and now am sick with something else. That’s fun.

9. I generally don’t like superhero movies, but the Marvel cinematic universe is becoming an exception to that.

10. I tried to be a video gamer, I really did, but the only two games I really like are World of Warcraft and Legend of Zelda, and I mostly like those two for the lore, not the gameplay.

11. Most of my ancestors were Scandinavian, making me basically a viking. :3

{ Savannah’s Questions }

1. What’s your favorite book from when you were small?

Define small. I mean if we’re talking toddler, then Golden Book’s Cinderella. Mom says she memorized it because I wanted her to read it so often. A bit later on, Elsie’s Endless Wait. Excellent book for all young Christian girls… or honestly, any Christian girl.

2. If you met the villain of your work-in-progress in the grocery store, what would he or she have in their cart?

I write in fantasy, so well, no one goes to grocery stores. And technically my villain is a sovereign, so he’d probably have servants to do that for him. Now if he were transported to a 2015-esque Costco, then, after panicking because of the sudden time travel, he’d probably be a fan of the pizza.

3. What was one of your best dreams ever?

I stole the ring of power from Gollum with the help of Lily Evans and then escaped onto the Death Star where Lily had to leave me and I snuck around with Sherlock until we were in a small living room and I realized with a start that the victim in the room had been gassed to death. I tried to warn Sherlock, but saw him fall just as I blacked out, and that’s when I woke up to my alarm, muttered “but I have to find out what the third act was,” and tried to fall back asleep to no avail. That was pretty good.

4. Which do you like better: Chocolate chip cookies, or vanilla ice cream?

Hard, but vanilla ice cream. Ice cream tho. Ice cream.

5. If you had the chance to go to France or England, which would you choose? Why?

England. Because, BBC. Nuff said.

6. If you could pick one song to describe one of your favorite characters, what would it be?

Skyward Sword’s Zelink pairing is basically perfectly summed up in the song A Thousand Years.

7. What’s your least favorite color?

Possibly red. Bright, vibrant, piercing red that blares at you angrily. Crimsons I’m more ok with.

8. How do you stop hiccups?

Honestly, I don’t. I do the water thing occasionally if I get desperate but usually I just suffer.

9. What’s one book that really irritated you?

The Scarlet Letter. The themes were great, don’t get me wrong, but you’re introduced to Hester Prynne and for the first third of the book she’s the only protagonist. At a third of the way through suddenly you have dual protagonists. I as a reader really didn’t like the feeling that I’d been lied to about who the book was about. That did annoy me. That said, the themes in it are worth exploring.

10. What’s something you were always scared to do?

Most things, if I’m being honest. I’m really good at seeing the risks involved in any situation and from there generally decide it’s a bad idea to try whatever it is. Oh, here’s one. I was scared for a long time of forming any kind of a close friendship because I knew I’d be risking losing that person eventually, or being hurt by them. I got over that one recently. It was well worth the risk. Well worth. But be careful- not everyone out there is worth that risk.

11. Would you eat garlic ice cream?

As much as I love garlic, and as much as I love ice cream, no. Well, ok. I’d try it just so that I could say that I had. I would not however try more than necessary for bragging rights.

{ My Questions for the Nominees}

1. What is your favorite book that you have read for school?

2. What originally got you writing?

3. Which movie are you most excited for this year?
