Bah.

miimsislab:

Miss Trixx, I did not forget about you.

Dinny, I did not forget about you.

Cirque, I did not forget about you.

Life’s just been hectic and way off-line. I can’t find inspiration.

[headdeskforever]

Take it easy and look after yourself as best you can, Hippo. I don’t know the extent or details or your situation, but I’ve been told times aren’t amazing for you at the moment. I will always be patient. But hearing from you like this feels needed, so thank you.

But seriously. Don’t worry.

I haven’t done something like this in a long time.
I just started to sketch with a pen on the plane and BAM!
Let’s just say I am super inspired to rework that comic of mine.

Do you travel much? If so, where do you like to go?
Anonymous

"I don’t have the chance to travel often, I’m usually bound to Rata Sum and Metrica. My occupation leashes me to this city and my off days aren’t long nor consecutive enough to let me stray too far from here. In fact, until a little more than a year ago, I’d never left Maguuma except to take the portal to Lion’s Arch and make the journey to the Priory monastery with my begetters."

She looks a little unsettled at the recollection.

"Believe it or not, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed Southsun Cove, although I tend to stay in the regions the Consortium has under control. I like Divinity’s Reach, too, as long as I have someone to escort me. I do not enjoy travelling through the Shiverpeaks or through charr territory."

(What are your phobias?)

Dinny taps the pad of her finger against her chin as she considers the question, eyes slowly shifting left and right as though the thought were literally rolling around in her mind.

"Nothing that I could reasonably classify as an actual phobia. However, this is where I confess I’m highly distrustful of mesmers and wary of mesmer magic. Anything and everything in the vein of weaving illusions and domination magic. Honestly, I’d rather plug my snout and hang out with a necromancer and all of his putrid, shambling minions than willingly spend time with someone whose chief talent is deceit."

Her voice catches and the next part of her speech is extremely strained, her throat closing up.

"Denial. The good ones can prevent you from accessing your magical potential completely."

Kiss me, quick!

billysquirrel:

"D-Dinny?" Nakk raised an eyebrow as he’s pulled in a tight circle pinning Dinny between the wall and his self, his cloak enveloping them both. The sound of rapid footsteps approaching and voices raised in anger is clue enough. Among the frenzied den of the bazaar Nakk leans in and places a gentle kiss, the angry mob overlooking yet another gross display of public affection in a faceless shifting crowd. Cutting his eyes to the side Nakk watches the group till they turn a corner, pulling his lips from Dinny’s nose and throwing back his hood. "Who the skritt did you piss off?"

((This makes me very curious to know which number it was you generated.))

Isa: What's your opinion on firearms? As a peacemaker, I'm sure you've had some sort of experience with them!

Dinny raises her hand in a small, cordial wave to the familiar asura. After studying Isa intently for a moment, she leans slightly left, arcing her gaze around the magister’s body in what appeared to be an attempt to discern whether or not that was indeed a rifle mounted on her back. She resumes an ordinary posture and nods slowly.

"Let’s just say I’m pleased that we’re not required to use them, although they’re a mandatory part of our combat training alongside blunt weapons and magics. We receive some rudimentary training in a vast array of weapons, but ultimately each peacemaker will go on to hone whatever they have a natural affinity toward. I use a number of melee weapons and magic… mostly preservation. I actually consider my shield my most important weapon. I own a peacemaker-issue one and another more… ornate, magical one. But it breaches about 19 uniform regulations."

She coughs into her hand sheepishly.

"They’re… good. They’re just not for me. They don’t channel magic very effectively either, so they don’t make as good weapon focuses as anything you have to actually grasp in your hand and get up and personal with. And don’t even get me started on the heaviness and recoil of some rifles."

A daffodil: What’s the most thoughtful present you’ve ever received? -- [From askmirgugai, but it was posted as a fanmail so I have to send it to myself to answer it]

"I can think of quite a few thoughtful gifts worth mentioning."

With a degree of difficulty, she slides off her right gauntlet, revealing a gleaming, mithril-hued ring. The twist of the band resembles a mobius strip, and you can vaguely make out uncomfortable-looking indentations in her flesh from wearing it beneath her armor. Part of a preserved passion flower is encased in resin and mounted upon a orichalcum setting - it’s obvious it’s a later addition.

"I received this from someone a long time ago in a little hidden garden off to the side of Diessa, initially as a token of friendship. Most of the gifts I receive from people tend to be jewelry, go figure."

In one clean gesture, she plunges her hand back into the gauntlet and starts on redoing the fastens.

"There’s nothing else that I can show you right now, but Annachponae is a far more competent golemancer than I am. He was the one who created Funkytron 2000. Well, re-purposed an inquest golem as a gift to me, but you get the picture."

With the glove fully secured, she flexes her fingers for a few moments.

"And I live apart form my hu- er, significant other, but he manages to send me a passion flower every couple of days if he’s not too busy. My flat always has a full vase."

(What was your favorite book as a child?)

image
"Sincerely, I think I treasured just about every fiction book I had access to. My progenitors possessed a vast library of books on asuran history, ancient asuran language and other such Priory tomes, none of them were particularly engaging reading material for a progeny."

She picks up her ears by the tips, raising them slightly over her head.

"My favorite children’s book was about an asura with exceptionally large ears. Everyone loved and envied her for them and vocalized their envy, but they were constantly a burden to her: they dragged along the ground and she would actually trip over them, she’d singe them in experiments, she’d knock stuff over if she flipped her head around too fast. Stuff like that. The climax of the book is when she proves herself to everyone by flying off the side of Rata Sum using her ears as majestic parachutes."

You give the asura an incredulous look.

"Okay, I might’ve made that last part up."

How do you perceive the Eternal Alchemy?
Anonymous

image

"We think of it as an all-pervading system, an over-arching set of laws and principles that both dictate and unify other smaller systems. In essence, the Eternal Alchemy forms the rules of our reality and represents inter-connectivity between the various systems existing within its parameters."

The asura stoops low, dropping to a knee as she starts to draw something in the dirt, dragging clawtip through the sediment.

"Different colleges conceptualize it differently, and I’ve heard parents explain it to their young in a number of ways. I like to think of the Alchemy as a rich, fertile soilbed upon which a garden grows. The plants, insects, microorganisms, nutrients and so on form their own systems, often ensuring the survival of one another by way of symbiotic or otherwise beneficial interactions. It’s worth mentioning that, unlike other asura, I don’t believe the alchemy can be identified and controlled. It has more of a metaphysical quality than my poor analogy suggests."

She withdraws her hand from the earth, tucking it into the space between her leg and chest, remaining knelt. She looks up at you expectantly, taking her eyes off the scrawlings for the first time.

"If you wanted something more elaborate and eloquent than that, go ask a Synergetics. They’re great at talking a lot about nothing of any importance whatsoever. I can think of somebody…"

(Do they prefer sour or sweet treats?)

"Sweets, of course! As if there was any contest. Sour confections have their place too, of course, as long as it’s not inside a sweet one. Who does that? What kind of sadist makes a nice moist, saccharine pastry to slowly work through, then you hit the core, expecting some sort of thick fruity compote and then it’s like… Sour cherry?!"

Her tone at the end of her speech sounds distraught and betrayed. It appears she’s unreasonably emotionally invested in the topic.

♔ - Do they value loyalty?

image

"Hmm, sure? Though I’m certain that loyalty is generally regarded as a favorable trait when considering interpersonal relations, perhaps my answer is not unique in that regard."

She places her hands either side of her helm, twisting it for a slightly better seat, though it seemed more a social crutch than a requirement.
