BASICS

Name: SK
Gender: Female
Date of birth: 1-14-1988
Likes: Tae Kwon Do, chess, computers, video games, writing stories, scarves, stuffed animals, and fruit-flavored candy.
Dislikes: Immature people, long classes, traffic, waking up half an hour before your alarm goes off and not being able to fall asleep again.
Describe yourself in 5 words: Quirky, friendly, level-headed, casual, intelligent.

THIS OR THAT
(Please provide a short explanation as well)

Optimistic or pessimistic? Optimistic. I always want to think that thinks will turn out for the best, but I'm not blindly optimistic, either.
Leader or follower? I'm really more of a loner, but I do teach martial arts, so in that respect, I am a leader.
Introvert or extrovert? Introverted for the most part in that I don't speak up much, but in recent years I've become more outspoken when I need to be.
Mature or immature? Mature.
Violent or peaceful? Peaceful. I try to avoid conflict, and if there is a disagreement, I try to resolve it without anyone getting hurt.
Selfish or altruistic? Altruistic for the most part in that I'm really willing to help out my friends/family whenever they need it, but if I feel like I'm being taken advantage of, I don't mind being a little selfish now and then. I'm also sometimes selfish in my motivations for doing things.
Rude or polite? Polite, definitely. Even if I really dislike someone, I try to be as polite as possible.
Eat here or take away? Usually take away. I got into the habit of eating at home while watching TV. Now my family complains that I eat too slowly, haha.

MISC.

What do you consider to be your one very best trait and why? I like to think I'm a fair person. I try to think things through so that everyone will be happy with the decision. I'm also very friendly and accepting.
And what do you think is your worst? I can get frustrated and emotional very easily. I try not to let it show around most, but certain things really push my buttons.
If you could change one thing about yourself or your life, what would it be? I wish I had more close friends. I feel very distant from most people I know lately, and it's a bit lonesome at times.
If you could be any inanimate object, what would you be and why? I really can't think of a good answer to this!
What element do you most identify with and why? Water. It's quiet, and very hard to read. One minute it can be calm, and the next it can be a storm.

LOST

Providing food and water is not an issue, which three items would you want to have with you on the island? Please elaborate. I'd bring my martial arts uniform so that I could practice on the beach, a notebook so I could jot down story ideas or to chronicle events as they happen, and sunscreen, since I burn very easily.
Which Lost character do you personally think is most suited to be everyone’s leader and why? I don't think any one character is best as the leader, honestly. Everyone has their own stance and approach to things, and the combination of many people's input is the best way for things to be run.
Would YOU accept this position? Why? Why not? Definitely not! I'd like to give my input and would be more than willing to help with whatever, but I would be too unsure to lead everyone.
Which Lost character do you least identify with and why? Probably Ben. He lies constantly, and lying is something I really hate and would feel totally uncomfortable doing.

Anything else you would like to add? I hope this community isn't dead, since I'm interested to see what people would rate me as. :)

Adjectives, hmmh. Some characters that first come to mind through some of those are... Sawyer, Locke, Hurley, Charlie, Desmond, Daniel... Casual maybe something of woshisname the pilot, too, maybe some distant hints of Eloise Hawking on her less "This is vitally important" or 50s gung-ho days, some Charlotte, not sure about Ilana. I think Desmond perhaps the most for adjectives.

Desmond has a soldier's training, so that might go with martial arts, although chess and some of that also hint at Locke at times? I forget what Desmond used to say, but I could hear "Relax, brother" from him in relation to optimism.

Oh, and I guess some Boone might match bits of all that as well, especially the mature + peaceful + disliking immature people bits. I'm also leaning more and more toward the pilot, whom I even like a lot, so damn not remembering the name right now. While I can see Desmond getting frustrated like you, and Daniel is reflected in being too unsure to lead anyone, I think the pilot has to be my primary choice for you. I'll check the name when I can, Jeff Farley or whatever the actor's name, not the Greg Grunberg one. However, since I also kept mentioning Desmond, I guess I'll have to endorse that as well. Him I could see really disliking that alarm clock thing. Except I hear the other guy had his own problems with alarm clocks or something, too, but anyway.

As to the comm being dead, it's only as dead as nothing having re-sparked things even in S5, the three votes rule seeming a little on the lower side when there are apps nearly a year old just now. It'll even out, and even varying from what theme it was supposed to be next might help.

Frank Lapidus, which I got in my mind the minute I typed IMDB down. Jeff Fahey for the actor, I see.

Sayid was first to come to mind, and then Daniel.

I really suck at explaining my choices, but Sayid is very physical(tae kwon do) and Dan fits your adjectives well.

The LOST answers make me think Sayid and Dan as well.

18th-Oct-2010 05:12 am (UTC) - Sayid
I'm not usually this inarticulate, but borderlinetruth said it well, I think. I do also see bits of Desmond, but Sayid remains my first choice.
