Ask Me Anything!

Ask Me Anything!

Everyone has their own story, whether they're the protagonist or some measly side character, and people want to hear yours!

Just post a description of yourself in the title and let those crazy anons ask you questions.

Here are some examples:
  • Ask a MgRonald's cashier!
  • Ask someone who studies Titans for a living anything.
  • Everyone ships me with my best friend, AMA. (also, help)
  • My life revolves around pitting animals against each other, ask me about Pokemon.
  • I met Goku in a meme once, AMA.
  • Ask a guy who gets 10 minutes of screentime.

Ask a 1450+yr old Merlinian Sorcerer anything

english_dignity: (misc - Hm?)

Have someone who is actually older than him.

[personal profile] english_dignity 2015-04-23 09:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Merlinian? Now, I've heard of Merlin, met the bloke once actually, and I've certainly heard of sorcerers, by I haven't heard 'Merlinian' before.
bitterguardian: (little smile)

Goodness. That's a rarity.

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2015-04-23 10:03 pm (UTC)(link)
You... met him? Merlinian is simply a sorcerer who follows his teachings, but I... was his apprentice, once a very long time ago.
english_dignity: (magic - All the magic of the ages.)

[personal profile] english_dignity 2015-04-23 10:10 pm (UTC)(link)
When I was a boy. Of course, that was quite a long time ago.

Huh. I didn't know he'd taken an apprentice. That's actually rather nice to hear though.

Where are my manners? I'm Arthur. [Pauses.] Not that Arthur of course.
bitterguardian: (Neutral)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2015-04-23 10:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Likewise, I'm afraid!

He took several... but again, that was some time ago.

Ah! I'm... pleased to meet you. And I only ever saw that Arthur from afar. He wasn't much concerned with us. Maximus Horvath. [Offers a handshake.]
english_dignity: (magic - this is how)

[personal profile] english_dignity 2015-04-23 11:30 pm (UTC)(link)
[Shakes his hand firmly.] Well, he was often quite distracted. A pleasure to meet a fellow magic user anyway. Especially one closer to my age.
bitterguardian: (magic rings)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2015-04-24 12:06 am (UTC)(link)
I suppose so. I don't think he much cared for children, either.

[He smiles, because as reminiscing goes, that part of his life was at least a bright spot. His handshake is firm, although he's forced to bend down slightly for it. There are heavy, gem-laden rings on all but one of his fingers, but he's learned to be careful not to crush anyone's hand into them.]
english_dignity: (magic - Hogwarts)

[personal profile] english_dignity 2015-04-28 03:07 am (UTC)(link)
Afraid he had to suffer my company anyway. It was still a few hundred years before I grew up.

[The rings make Arthur curious, especially when he can clearly feel the magic in them. So even after they parted hands, he looked down at the gems.]

Bespelled, I take it?
bitterguardian: (skeptical)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2015-04-28 02:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Growing up is overrated. [He smiles, and rocks on his feet, leaning on his cane. Glancing down at his rings, one eyebrow rises.]

In... various ways, yes. Some of them hold quick shield or healing spells, but Merlin also taught us using a ring as a talisman for focusing our abilities. Think of it as a sort of ritual circle in constant contact with you.
english_dignity: (rocker - caught)

[personal profile] english_dignity 2015-04-29 10:15 am (UTC)(link)
Clever idea. Can't say I've ever thought of it.

[Not that it was the best idea for him to have a spell at his fingertips at all times. Having a nation's wellspring worth of magic was as much of a hazard as it was a benefit.]
bitterguardian: (considering)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2015-04-29 12:27 pm (UTC)(link)
It's how I'm used to working. It needn't be a ring specifically, just a talisman of some kind, but Merlin gave me my personal talisman and I've rarely used anything else.

[Horvath has plenty of power at his fingertips, but he tends to be fairly responsible in using it.]

Why does anyone even manufacture cat toys or treats? All they want is to play with crumpled paper and eat lint off the floor.
bitterguardian: (laugh)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2015-04-23 10:08 pm (UTC)(link)
You know, I've no idea? I suppose because cat owners are gullible people?

Mind you, I do have a few purchased toys, and treats are certainly better than carpet lint.

[personal profile] prescription_grade 2015-04-23 10:10 pm (UTC)(link)
Did you just call yourself gullible? I'm not sure I buy that, man.
bitterguardian: (grin)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2015-04-23 10:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Only in one certain very specific area. That which involves my cats.

[personal profile] prescription_grade 2015-04-23 10:50 pm (UTC)(link)
So, your lap? [Okay, that could sound bad, taken out of context, but he doesn't mean it that way.]
bitterguardian: (amused)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2015-04-24 12:07 am (UTC)(link)
Ah... well... [He looks slightly sheepish.] They prefer to sleep right here, most of the time. [He rests a hand on his stomach.]

[personal profile] prescription_grade 2015-04-24 01:26 am (UTC)(link)
How does it feel to be cuddly?
bitterguardian: (joking around)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2015-04-24 01:38 am (UTC)(link)
[...Is he blushing? Maybe a little.]

I... I don't know. It feels a bit like too many cookies and not enough exercise? Warm.
prescription_grade: (Default)

[personal profile] prescription_grade 2015-04-24 02:17 am (UTC)(link)
And fuzzy, if the cats are all over you?

Let's go get cookies. I'd like too many cookies.
bitterguardian: (chubbycheeks grin)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2015-04-24 02:22 am (UTC)(link)
Better you eating them than me, I think. But yes, cookies, and tea... and I will admit to being fuzzy, myself. [He runs a hand over his beard, smirking.]
