    I'm so unprepared for this but lets get to it.

    I think I was following BB on and off for years before I ever joined. As to how I found it...don't recall. Probably popped up while I was looking BtVS/AtS stuff up on the net.

    The characters. S1 was goofy and campy so the monster stuff didn't really grab me. It was the core 4 and their relationships with each other.

    Oh, mm. I truly, madly love S1-4 Buffy. So I'd say probably her.

    Coffee, coffee, coffee.

    No clue, honestly. I never get sick. Last time was so long ago that I don't remember.

    Both. I was originally left handed but was schooled to use right hand. There are things I prefer doing with my left hand and others with my right hand.

    In the middle I would say. I'm not naive enough to think that with billions of planets out there we are the only one with intelligent life. But visiting us? I would hope aliens had better things to do.

    I don't listen to much music really. And rarely sing along. Seriously, I prefer not going deaf and if you ever heard me sing you'd know what I'm talking about.

    Since I have my dream job, I'm set there.

    All of them. What? It's ice cream.

    Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote. I'm not picking between the two because you can't have one without the other.

    Oh boy. All of them for various reasons. But probably Xander whom I would tell to stop applying his comic book hero expectations on Buffy, therefore hopefully avoiding some of the nasty comments on his end. That would hopefully lead to a better relationship between him and Buffy.

    I'm honestly not sure. I would do well with shelter and stuff. But when it comes to food...not too sure. Chances are I end up eating a poisonous fruit. Or having to eat things like critters and some such that make me gag just thinking about it.

    Early days were good. Last few years not so much.

    SPIDERS.

    I think I've mentioned this once before on the board. But it's pure and utter IRONY. Shipping is the biggest and worst thing in this fandom. I don't see the point why I would ever ship anyone in the Whedonverse. Whedon can't take any relationship seriously and crashes and burns all of them sooner or later. So I merely tolerate romantic relationships as part of the story but never get invested in one.

    Honestly couldn't tell you. I haven't gotten around much in Germany myself. But it would be somewhere historical. there are some great castles and such around here. But definitely wouldn't advise any big cities.

    In the last few years I'd say history.

    I'm currently reading 'Long Night's Journey Into Day: The Death March of Lowicz'.

    I rarely go to the theater but usually I prefer the middle.

    Painting.

    When I was a teenager I loved sci-fi. X-Files, Farscape and even Star Trek or Babylon 5 and all that. I also watched Gilmore Girls, Dark Angel and House. I faithfully watched Supernatural and then gave up in the 7th Season. I also used to love horror movies, still do, because they are usually funnier than any comedy. But I don't watch much in terms of shows or movies anymore.

    Anything concerning noodles or fish. No matter in what form, gimme. Don't think I have a favorite dessert. I don't have much of a sweet tooth.

    I've been to Denmark, UK, Turkey and France (for 1 day). I've always wanted to go to Eastern Europe. And Asia like China, Japan, Thailand or wherever just because I love Asian architecture.

    That it's still around after so long and still as passionate. Pretty amazing.

    Yes.

    Oh boy that was long ago. But I'd say English and Biology.

    People talking while eating. When it comes to toilet paper I'm an over, so much so that I will turn a roll around if I see it's under.

    The food, in almost all forms. Decades ago it used to be the people.

    I didn't used to. But considering how the country is decaying I would get out if I could.

    Girl seriously needs to relax more.

    Lilah, no contest. Paris' badasser-y is limited to words. Not so with Lilah.

    Would you make a good spy?

    What do you do for a living?

    Beach holidays or city breaks?

    What is your one Buffy or Angel go-to episode that always makes you smile?

    Are you a sports fan?

    Huh, never thought about that before. I'm going to say no because I'm not into killing people, even professionally.

    I work in a lab.

    Mmm, neither? Get me out into nature. Beaches and cities are no fun.

    Off the top of my head, the one where it's in the name. SMILE TIME.

    I used to be. Watched pretty much every sport. These days not so much anymore.

    What nature based holidays do you enjoy? Camping etc or just countryside based?

    What meal do you cook better than your friends/family?

    Aeryn 'Shooting makes me feel better' Sun

    Countryside I would say. My mom and her b/f live 20 km outside the city. They are basically surrounded by farmland and not much else. I enjoy long walks there and at night you get a sky full of stars, not like in the city.

    I'm a terrible cook so I'd say none. I do however make some mean boiled water.

    Playing more than watching. Everything from table tennis to basketball, volleyball or soccer.

    Sadly no. I always want one but I live in an apartment and I'm against having animals in apartments.

    No.

    Not to fall back on old habits after her watcher died. From what I understand, her watcher was sort of her savior ('Go ask Malice' which isn't canon I believe but might as well be) that saved her from falling off the face of the earth completely. So I'd tell her not give up on people again and instead take a chance on them.

    None. Faith has been A+ since AtS S4.

    If we are talking religious believes then I have none.

    Tough one. I'd say any of the S2 episodes most people hate. Like I said it's all about the core 4 and their relationships for me and one thing S2 had, even in the worst episodes, is plenty of Scoobie interaction.

    EFFING HOT!!! It's over 30°C here. I'm sweating while wearing nothing.

    Do you think Aeryn might've been happier with Larraq if things had been different?

    Crais or Scorpy?

    Strangest holiday you've experienced?

    How many languages do you speak?
