Question:
Let's get Psychological on this one. In the form of a nightmare that you've have, tell me your worst fear. It doesn't need to be something physical (spiders/dark) it can be a mental or social fear as well (isolation/ loss of control).
Garrett: I'm in the park where I spent my 10th birthday. I'm watching everything from someone else's eyes, but I'm not sure whose at first. I'm looking at myself opening presents, and he looks happy. We eat cake and laugh and play those stupid party games we all did as kids, and everything seems normal. Then I say something that I can't even understand, but this other me, the one I'm watching, he does. He gets really angry. I try to calm him down, but he's not listening. I slowly realize that I'm watching things through the eyes of Trent, my best friend back then. This other me, he shoves and I trip, and then...

Look, I don't want to talk about this anymore. We're done today.


Alfred: Gosh, I don't really have nightmares. Dad says that nightmares are a sign of a guilty soul, and I don't have anything to be guilty about. I mean, sometimes I have this dream where I can hear Mom and Dad fighting, like they did before Mom got sick sometimes, and I think it's about me, but I wouldn't really call it a nightmare. They're just words, and like Dad said, words never hurt anybody, right?


Lee: Okay, man, you know that story "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream"? It was written by that guy Ellison, it's a neat little sci-fi piece, you should check it out sometime. But anyway, that's my nightmare right there. Not the whole "Crazy AI playing with your head" shit, but that ending where the dude needs to scream but doesn't have a mouth anymore. See, in this dream I've figured out something big, like life or death big. It changes each time, and it's been everything from knowing a friend is going to die to preventing some huge-ass war. Here's the kicker though: Everything goes right for a little bit. People let me talk to whoever I need to, and I'm all set up to come through in the eleventh hour, you know? Then things go wrong. This person I'm supposed to talk to shows up, and I'm already to just spill the whole thing and get to fixing stuff when my lips won't move. I can feel my jaw straining against my skin, but my mouth isn't opening. I reach up, and my mouth is completely sealed over, like it was never even there. Just skin, you know? I look back up, and this person is gone too, never to be seen again.

Trippy shit, man. Taught me to watch what I eat before bed, heh.


Question:
How important is education, really?

Question: What is your favorite class in high school and why?


Garrett: Probably Rhetoric. I feel it has the most applicable value.

Alfred: Oh, Music Theory hands down. I learned some from Jerry before he left, but I'm always excited to learn new things and explore what I can do. I know being a musician isn't a real job like Dad wants me to have, but it's still fun to goof around sometimes.

Lee: Study Hall. This stuff's all really just busy work at this point anyway, so at least they give me some time to do the stuff that's actually important. Besides, it gives me a chance to scope out the latest intel.

Question:
What does friendship mean to you?

Question: Anyone you have a crush on? Tell us.
Garrett: I'm not really into the whole romance thing. Too much potential negativity. I find a good friend to be a far more pleasant companion.

Alfred: A crush? What's that?

*Following a brief aside with Garrett*

Oh! Gosh, I haven't really thought about that. Dad says womenfolk bring the kind of trouble that I don't want any part of until I'm ready for a family of my own, and that's just not part of the plan right now.

Lee: Heh, who's asking? Really though, I don't spill about anyone else, and I like to think my own secrets deserve that same level of professional courtesy. I mean, come on, if you can't keep your own business straight how can you be trusted with anyone else's?

And because I was pro ninja'd:

Question: You're fighting an invading force (NOT zombies). What sort f role are you taking, and how are you fighting?


Garrett: Tactician, probably. I would be ill-suited to front-line combat due to my predisposition to macro-thought, but I feel I could do well with planning troop movement and predicting enemy patterns.

Alfred: Hmm. Well, like any good American boy, I'd probably be out on the front with Dad. I don't really like violence, but I guess if we get invaded you've gotta do what you gotta do. Then again, Mom would probably worry, and someone needs to take care of her, so maybe I'd just stay with her and pray, since that's what Dad would want anyway.

Lee: Spy, dude. I would be grabbing secret missives and breaking codes all up in this war-time bitch. They'd call me "The Spectre" or "Mist" or some spooky shit like that. The name's Penbur. Lee Penbur.

Question:
Who's your least favorite schoolmate?

Question: If you could own any fictional creature as a pet, which one would you choose?

Garrett Jairus: Like all logical men, I want dragon. Why? I have a better question for you: Why not?

Alfred: Hmm. Probably one of those really smart horses from C.S. Lewis's "Horse and His Boy." How cool would it be to have a talking horse?

Lee: Dak from Tuf Voyaging. A psychic kitten would just be the best pet ever, even with all the other crazy things Tuf manages to cook up. If I had one of those, I think I'd be set for life.

Question: Are there any particular fandoms that you find particularly annoying?



Garrett: Twilight fangirls. I swear on Nichomachean Ethics that if I ever get a time machine, I will burn every copy of those damned books that ever existed to the ground.

Alfred: You mean like groups of people that like stuff? I guess guys who are really into like gangster rap and stuff. Dad says it's the gateway to a life of malevolence, whatever that means.

Lee: Okay, I know I'm gonna get a lot of hate for this, but I can't stand bronies. I get it, you like the weird show made for young girls, whatever floats your boat, but stop clogging my message boards up with your creepy pictures n' shit. Get help, guys.

Question:
If you could change one thing about the universe, what would it be?

QUESTION: If you could make your least favorite movie better, what would you change?
Garrett: I would force whoever wrote the screenplay for Lightning Thief to stick to the book and not be a massive racist.

Alfred: I make it so that in that movie Inception, the main guy's wife didn't go crazy. Garrett and I watched that one once, and it made me really sad what happened to her.

Lee: I would round up everyone involved in the creation of Stardust's screen adaptation, and make them apologize to Neil Gaiman one by one. Then I'd force them to make the real movie. After that, I'd take all the copies of the original movie an everything related to it, and nuke it all from orbit. It's the only way to be sure, dude.

Question:
What is the worst fictional universe you could live in?

Question: When's the last time a fictional work seriously frightened you?
Garrett: Philip K. Dick's "Autofac" was rather jarring to me. I don't normally get scared, but that story left me feeling very uneasy, if not necessarily frightened.

Alfred: "Hopfrog" by Edgar Allan Poe. I had to read it for American Literature, and I can't stop thinking about it. Who writes that kind of messed up story?

Lee: Definitely "House of Leaves". That book was so freaky, and what made it worse was weird little things about my copy, like small scratch marks that get deeper for a few pages when he's first describing being stalked by something. I swear those weren't there when I started reading, I almost pissed myself the first time I saw that shit.

Question: If you had to have any superpower, what would it be?



Garrett: Time travel. It's clearly the best super power.

Alfred: I'd want to fly. Flying seems like it would just be perfect.

Lee: The ability to copy other super powers. That's right, everybody else chooses one, and I get to pick all of them. Game to Penbur.

Question:
If you could do anything once and get away with it, what would you do?

Garrett: Well, that's not really for me to say, is it? I'd feel very arrogant making that statement for someone else. I'd be honored if someone said that about me, but it's an uncomfortable concept. I don't want to receive special treatment, especially when there are so many people who are far more deserving of attention.

Question: Why are you, as an individual, here?
