Part of a series of memes in fabula_umbrae 's journal - I may do the others later but right now it's  getting late.

Pick 12 of your characters without reading the questions first.  Then, go through and answer the questions appropriately.

I choose...

1. Auren Technomancer
2. Kirel ika Jehaun
3. Yissal
4. Yealurowluro
5. Lenla du Finagle
6. Alfric
7. Lord Frederic Finagle
8. Lady Lianor d’ Finagle
9. Patriarch Duncan
10. Matriarch Shirra
11. Lisel Valeni Metaxa
12. Aleric Metaxi Valen

1. Who would make a better college professor, 6 or 11?
Depends on the subject actually – Alfric’s a fighter, while Lisel’s an engineer.  Both, however are sufficiently silly that I wouldn’t hire them for academe.  Safer than Yealurowluro I suppose though.

2. Do you think #2 is hot?  How hot?
Not by human standards.  Jehaun standards, possibly.  Never thought about it.

3. 12 sends 8 on a mission.  What is it and does it succeed?
For them to meet at all, sounds like someone got lost.
Aleric: Could you kindly direct me to the world gate back to Silver City?
Lady Lianor: Right over there. 
Aleric: OK, thanks…

And as Aleric makes her way down to the worldgate at Gateway City (some city – maybe a thousand people)  Lenla  comes charging up out of nowhere and wants to know if Aleric knows how to fly that scattership she picked up and generally goes all tech-fangirl all over her.  Run Away!!!!!

4. What is or would be 9’s favorite book?
Grey’s Anatomy.  Though knowing Duncan he’d also be interested in various modern works on veterinary science.  Even with the increased population of the Gateway Valley these days, he still probably sees more livestock than humans at the clinic.

5. Would it make more sense for 2 to swear fealty to 6 or the other way around?
The other way around – only Alfric’s already sworn fealty to Lord Frederic which pretty much obviates the whole thing.

6. For whatever reason, 5 is looking for a roommate.  Should 5 share a studio apartment with 9 or with 10?
Lenla?  Shirra most likely.  Of course if she shared one with Duncan he wouldn’t be home most of the time anyway since he tends to crash at the clinic.

7. 2, 7 and 12 have dinner together.  Where do they go and what do they discuss?
Kirel, Lord Fred and Aleric?  Probably someplace in Silver City. Kirel could relate some of the sillier things that have gone on in the Robber’s Roost of late, Aleric  would probably be too amused to say much, and Lord Fred would enjoy the food.

8. 3 challenges 10 to a duel.  What happens?
If you mean physical combat, neither is the type – Yissal is a Sidhe artisan and Shirra would consider it a waste of time that  could be spent Preparing to Smite Evil.  If they had to compete it’d probably something more like Iron Chef.

9. If 1 stole 8’s most precious posession, how would 8 get it back?
Lady Lianor’s most precious posessions are artifacts from her daughters' childhoods, and not something anybody would steal.  If  Auren accidentally made off with one, Lady Lianor would ask for it back and Auren’d apologize and return it.

10. Suggest a title for a story in which 7 and 12 both attain what they most  desire.
“The Biggest Fish in the Lake”

I think both Lord Fred and Aleric would like the chance to get a way from duty and go fishing for awhile.

11. What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted 4 and 1 to work together?
Auren and Yealurowluro?  The opportunity to pull off a really GOOD practical joke… and heaven help the  rest of the universe!

12. If 7 visited you for the weekend, how would you get along?
Ok, I expect.  Lord Fred’s pretty easy going.

13. If you could command 3 to perform any one task or service for you, what would it be?
Figure a way to magically extend my house into something like hammerspace by a few dozen rooms so I’d have room to PUT stuff.

14. Does anyone on your friends list write or draw anything regarding 11?
Nope – I doubt many of them even know about Lisel.  Though she’s one of the few characters listed who are not game characters, but originated in a shared universe a group of us used to write about when I was in college.  She’s based on me in mid-convention high at age 24.

15. If 2 had to choose sides between 4 and 5, which would it be?
Kirel doesn’t  know either of them, though she is probably aware of Lenla’s existance.  It would depend entirely on what the point of contention was.

16. What might 10 shout while charging into battle?
“Die, damn you, and Stay Dead This Time!”    (She’s actually USED that one.)

17. If you chose a song to represent 8, which song would you choose?
“Homeword Bound” by Simon and Garfield.  More for her backstory than her current situation,  mercifully.

18. 1,6, and 12 are having dim sum at a Chinese restaurant.  There is only one scallion pancake left, and they all reach for it at the same time.  Who gets to eat it?
Auren and Aleric would both pause for a second to be polite, and Alfric would cheerfully snag the thing out from under them, with a grin.

19. What might be a good pick-up line for 2 to use on 10?
I’m not even going to THINK about this one…

20. What would 5 most likely be arrested for?
Lenla?  Honesty, in the wrong place at the wrong time.

21. What is 6’s secret?
I’m not sure he has any.  Though I don’t know how many people are  aware he used to be an elf (D&D style) and after more years in the forest than most of us would want to think about, decided to try expeditioning, got killed on his very first run, was  reincarnated as a werewolverine, and has thereafter maintained a cheerful attitude of “what the heck?”

22. If 11 and 9 were racing to a destination, who would get there first?
Duncan, probably.  He gets a lot more exercise.

23. If you had to walk home through a bad neighborhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of 7 or 8?
Lord Frederic.  He’s kinda small and wiry but he’s a high level fighter, with tons of combat experience, and it shows.  That and presumably he’d be wearing his favorite sword which is also his best friend (hey, they’re both intelligence rating 12).  Without even trying, both radiate “you want to leave me alone, really.”  Of course we’d have to be careful the cops didn’t see us…

To be sure, Lady Lianor could make us both invisible and inaudible and nobody would know we were there.  But at that point Lord Fred would be upset if we didn’t bring him along.

24. 1 and 9 reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by 4’s sinister secret organization.  11 volunteers to help them but it is later discovered that he is actually a spy for 4.  Meanwhile, 4 has kidnapped 12 in an attempt to force their surrender.  Following the wise advice of 5, they seek out 3, who gives them what they need to complete their quest.  What title would you give this fic?

Actually I’d need about half the fic just to figure out how all of this crew met up in the first place.  – Auren, Lisel and Aleric are from the Teklenan, Yealurowluro is from the Hegemony, and the rest of the cast are from Gaelan more or less.

Auren teams up with Duncan to save the world from Yealurowluro who’s Up To Something sinister.  Lisel volunteers to help, but is actually working for Yealurowluro (which makes a certain amount of sense).  Yealurowluro has kidnapped Lisel’s cousin Aleric (who is probably too busy giggling to resist).  Lenla du Finagle advises them to go pester Yissal who magics up enough cotton candy for everybody.

OK, we’re in Silver City, the whole cast is having dinner, chattering away a mile a minute, and Alfric is lurking in the background with a pen and notepad.  Title?  “Ignore Me, Will You?”
