And Tags~

Too many to choose O.O...Probably History of the Other Side by Versailles because its calm and energetic at the same time~ (Its also a really good song ^U^)

Umm....too many things TT.TT

Probably....Bleach! I'll be actually useful as a shinigami XD

Probably that I judge people harshly on their clothes and I have strong OCD with it (only like 3 people know)

5. Do you sunburn easily? (I know I do! I'm basically Albino!)

I only had sunburn twice...or no ^u^~ (Though soon enough, years of no ozone layer and sunscreen will crash upon me in skin cancer TT.TT)

6. 'Eyes are the doors to the soul...' what colour are yours?

Brown :stare: 

7. If you had to classify yourself as a magical being for any reason, what would it be and why? (For example; I'd be a Hobbit because I'm small, but I DON'T have big feet!)

Umm...a vampire aristocrat! Because I like roses, fancy things and no sunlight in my room ^u^

I'd like to be able materialise things from my imagination ^u^ Weapons, money and companions~ ehehe

9. Greatest good you've ever done in life?

I knew the answer but I forgot O.O"

4. Do you think Neon green would get sick if it looked at itself in a mirror?
It'd get blinded because its too bright! QAQ

5. If it was raining would you go out there and sing some very emotional songs loudly for everyone to hear and start dancing?
No :stare: but I'd stay inside and sing one man version of Les Miserables

6. Is a thumb considered a finger?
Yes ^u^ because its too confusing to say that people have 8 fingers...

7. What would happen if the Pokemon stopped taking orders form humans and took over the world?
it wouldn't be nice?

10. Do you think I just wasted your time by asking all these nonsense questions?
probably...but I procrastinate so...

Visual Kei~~ And lots! Fiancailles by Lareine, Second Fear ~Another Descendant~ and To the Chaos Inside by Versailles and Lost November by Diaura.
