Nickname: Ollie, Livi
Star sign: Aries
Photo or brief description of yourself: I'm a bit short, around 5'3", with chocolate brown hair that goes just past my shoulders, hazel eyes, and a rower's body (any of you rowers out there know what I mean, and are probably having nightmarish flashbacks of erg training!)
Would you prefer to be stamped as a male or as a female character? It really wouldn't matter to me either way.
And, just because we're nosy, where did you hear about hagaren_rating? I searched fullmetal alchemist under 'interests' and happened to come across hagaren_rating :)
You In General
Hobbies: Rowing! I've been rowing for four years now, and it's become a huge part of me. There's just something about the soft clicking noise the oars make with every stroke and the smooth motion of the oar blades cutting through and then gliding on top of the water that clears my mind. My passion is writing and creating stories, characters and new worlds. I also love to read, swim, hike, listen to music, go off-roading, and hang out with friends/family.
Talents: I can always finding something to do or someway to occupy myself. I don't like to be bored, so I've always had quite an illustrious imagination. I'm also pretty good at cooking new and rather unusual dishes that actually taste really good, probably because I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen so much! I'm also a great listener and can make someone laugh and smile when they're feeling down. I also have the not so flattering talent of being rather clumsy and awkward whenever I'm anxious or nervous, as well as rambling on and on without really realizing it.
Likes: Where to start...hmm...trying new things, blue, swimming, rowing, the smell of rain (or just after it rains), the beach, music, reading, peaches, the sunset, hanging out with friends, just chilling by myself outside in the early early morning, roller coasters, going to concerts, UCLA!, traveling, indian food, trying new and unusual foods, spring, water, my friends, being able to lend a shoulder to cry on, being spontaneous, doing things I never imagined I'd ever do (like jumping off a 30ft cliff into the lake below) only to find out that I really enjoyed it, having fun, laughing, really hot and spicy food, smiling, watching the sun rise over the ocean, sitting on the beach with my feet buried in the sand, watching the ocean and finding where the rips tides are, ...I can just go on and on....
Dislikes: People who pressure their friends into doings things they don't want to, pork chops, very very large dogs, losing my glasses and not being to find them for days, people who try to make themselves feel better by hurting others, someone who would spread nasty rumors about their friend in order to look cool, seeing someone in pain and knowing that there's nothing I can do to help them, confusion, cleaning my room and doing a great and thorough job for the first half and then just losing focus or interest and rushing through the second half, and having to be stuck in a same old boring routine for any length of time.
Three words that best describe you: strong-willed, loyal, creative
Dreams for the future: I want to become a fiction novelist!
Favourite colour: Blue
Favourite food: Samosas! (I looooooove indian food with lots of spice!)
Favourite season: Spring
Favourite animal: Birds. I'm so jealous of the fact that the can fly!
Favourite character, and why: Havoc! He reminds me a lot of a very close friend of mine, so I can really relate to his character. Plus, he seems like someone who would be a lot of fun to hang out with!
If you could choose to be any of the characters for a day, who would you choose, and why? I guess Winry, just so that I could throw a well aimed wrench at Roy's head (because I love Roy, he's a great character, but I think he could use a good wrench to the head every once in a while XD)
Favourite pairing: I've always been a Roy/Riza shipper! I think they work well together.
Favourite FMA song, and why: Hmm...I don't really have one actually...
Favourite type of alchemy (e.g. flame, metal, light), and why: Metal, just because there's soooooooo many options as to what you can do with it.
Which is best, the manga or the anime? I much preferred the manga myself, probably because I read it first before watching the anime (not that I didn't enjoy the anime very much!)
Leader or follower? I usually take on the role of a leader, because I'm comfortable with taking on responsibilities and devoting my best effort and beyond to achieving the ultimate goal, and I tend to feel more at ease, and also rightly humbled, when I'm in control. That being said, I also don't mind following ONLY as long as I agree with, trust, and respect the person I'm following. But if the person leading is making unwise or selfish decisions, then I will refuse to follow them, because I need to know that the person in charge who holds the responsibility is making serious and smart decisions and is not abusing his/her power.
Cool and collected or emotional? I'm somewhere in the middle. I can be impulsive and frequently follow my gut instinct, but I can also recognize when any given situation requires me to be controlled and alert. For example, when it comes to making important and serious decisions that could produce various outcomes or consequences, and I have the luxury of time, I'll think things through more.
Confident or shy? I'm generally very confident and outgoing, but that's not to say that I don't have my own insecurities that also shine through and sometimes affect my actions or reactions.
Optimist or pessimist? I'm quite the optimistic person...or should I say that I'm so stubborn that I'd never allow myself to give up. No matter how long or dark the tunnel may be, there's always a light at the end, and I'd hate myself and regret it if I ever stopped running towards that light because I had a moment of weakness or despair. I'd remind myself that for all I now the light at the end of the tunnel may be just around the corner, and how crushing and humiliating it would feel to give up after getting so unbelievably close to that light!
