100 Questions  
Nov, 2002

I don't know what compelled me to fill out a in-depth personal survey the length of the Adige, but here I am. I just hope a bunch of weirdos on the internet don't read this.

-Demos



1.ONE OF YOUR SCARS, HOW DID YOU GET IT?
My, aren't we forward? When I was young in Italy, nonno had quite a lot of money and just as many enemies. It was only a matter of time before I got kidnapped, really. Those idiots cursed me with having the same haircut for the rest of my life, to hide it. I look like one of those sad boys from Drama Club. If Dad hadn't killed them, I would have.

A painting of an old man by Emily, some framed black and white photos of Verona and Venice. There are also a few small photos of my family and friends.

If they were blond I'd be too tempted to call him 'Ken.' Not you, Seamus. You're too filthy to be Ken.

this made me giggle. actually, the whole survey was hilarious. :D
J. Cho: magnoliajisuk on August 7th, 2008 09:49 am (UTC)
Maybe if there was a London accent Ken with booze accessory and fresh vomit smell.
kat: Misc: the choicescelerisin on August 7th, 2008 06:01 pm (UTC)
there'd have to be a matching ferris doll to berate him and carry him around places when seamus!ken is too drunk to do it.

but demos is right, seamus would be instantly called off the shelves :D
pattypimp: happy viridpattypimp on August 7th, 2008 06:10 am (UTC)
Hahah... this is so funny, I love the one of Yale burning to the ground, and Seamus being to filthy to be ken =]
Kimkimberlass on August 7th, 2008 06:56 am (UTC)
The thing about Yale actually made me really sad. I need to not be so emotionally invested in high school characters. God knows no one needs to go through those feelings again.

I love the refrences to Seamus and Ferris. I'm glad Demos won. Thanks for taking the time to do this for us, it was a fun idea.
sysie on August 7th, 2008 07:07 am (UTC)
WIN WIN WIN!
I loved every one of those answers.
The Otterotterandfox on August 7th, 2008 07:41 am (UTC)
The answers were so incredibly Demos...too much late-night giggling over here, I need to go to sleep (I swear, I thought it said wine WITH espresso). Thank you for filling one of these out! They are very time-consuming O.o;

J. Cho: magnoliajisuk on August 7th, 2008 09:48 am (UTC)
Time consuming, but fun!
The Otter: Tarzan Potterotterandfox on August 7th, 2008 04:01 pm (UTC)
And addicting... I'm probably going to end up doing this one; I've never seen it before.

Oh, also! I have a question that has been bothering me since I shut my computer off last night.
"46. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Dad named me after Demosthenes..."
I was going to ask a while ago, but this made me sure I've been saying his name wrong. How do you say Demos? ^^;
J. Cho: magnoliajisuk on August 7th, 2008 04:14 pm (UTC)
deh-mos

'mos' as in the word 'most' :)
The Otterotterandfox on August 8th, 2008 12:29 am (UTC)
Thank you! n_n I almost had it right... x_x;
Tiffany Mariesucrosesanction on August 7th, 2008 08:08 am (UTC)
A bajillion weirdos on the internet just read that.

Tiffany Mariesucrosesanction on August 7th, 2008 11:24 pm (UTC)
Oh, that just made my day.
Willa_red_autumn on August 7th, 2008 09:34 am (UTC)
What are the chances that Ferris and Seamus will also fill out the survey?
J. Cho: magnoliajisuk on August 7th, 2008 09:47 am (UTC)
I may do Seamus, since he was a very second close place. I'm guessing everyone already knows too much about Ferris. I never write fiction (if you count this) in first person so it was kind of fun/challenging.
humdrumbuzz on August 7th, 2008 12:44 pm (UTC)
"I may do Seamus"

Yes please! This was awesome but it would be nice to know a bit more about Seamus too
teamsuke: its a gas mask!entwinedangels on August 7th, 2008 09:39 am (UTC)
i loved the "I own nothing embarrassing."
my brain is repeating snotty little bastard in the fondest way
J. Cho: magnoliajisuk on August 7th, 2008 09:50 am (UTC)
Ehehehe the Master <33
He's totally a little snot, I don't know why he's everyone's favorite. I guess people like bastards.
>:U: thombythefaultlines on August 7th, 2008 09:08 pm (UTC)
Haha, I feel like people like Demos because he's unlike anyone we really know (or at least, unlike anyone I know). Your characters are all so real that reading this novel is like reading a story about people right out of our own lives -- I mean, I know people who are less enticing versions of Ferris, his parents, Seamus, and even Julie, and sometimes I read your work and realise how eerily like Emily I am. Don't get me wrong, I love all your characters and all of them are enthralling and original. But who's ever met a snotty-yet-charming, fruity-yet-threatening teenage mobster with inhuman charisma and marksmanship (but despite the ability to kill without batting an eye, would still be that depressed if his best friend moved away for a few years)? Not me. He instantly becomes more interesting in the stranger concept of his character, and the way you've built him up (he has like seventy dimensions ftw, and he isn't even the main focus of the novel) makes him just as much like a real person as the others, however less likely it is that someone like him really exists. So, yeah, I guess that's why I like Demos.
>:U: MIAbythefaultlines on August 7th, 2008 09:16 pm (UTC)
Uh, in case you actually wanted to know. :/
Sorry, that was longer than I realised.
J. Cho: magnoliajisuk on August 16th, 2008 02:40 am (UTC)
That makes a lot of sense, thank you. :)
orianeinparisorianeinparis on August 7th, 2008 10:52 am (UTC)
I just hope a bunch of weirdos on the internet don't read this.

Too late :p

9. THE BEST TV SHOW EVER CREATED:
Top Chef or The Sopranos

Seriously...who DOESN'T have a nerd crush on Alton Brown?
Jewels <3: baby snakesxxpadfootxx on August 7th, 2008 05:42 pm (UTC)
This was wonderful to wake up to. I love these characters so much and Demos has always been my favorite since I saw his pictures on DA. (:

As most others said, I also enjoyed how he wanted Yale to move or burn so he could stay close to Ferris. Aw. <3
boredoutoftimeboredoutoftime on August 7th, 2008 06:38 pm (UTC)
This is hilarious.. lol..
Adrithe_adri on August 7th, 2008 06:59 pm (UTC)
Oh my gooood I was hoping you'd answer the meme for all three of them and you did HOORAY. Demos is adorable, aw. Gotta love the honesty too, lol shallow. <3 These are great ahaha you make me want to do them too. <3

hazel_aspect on August 7th, 2008 07:14 pm (UTC)
OMG You made my day! Not only is my choice on here, my second and third choices are too~ You're amazing. And Demos is hilarious.

57. HOW DO YOU RELEASE YOUR ANGER?
Go to the shooting range. Or maybe the home of someone I don't like.

That made me laugh. Lots.

I have too many favorite questions in this meme.
Yale should burn down. Maybe Ferris can go to Southport Community College? *hopeful

"..and makes me feel safe."Awwww DEMOOOOS♥

I'm one of the many in love with him.
Jeez, Demos is so conceited. Pft.

23, 43, 81, 83!!!!
protagonist_m on August 11th, 2008 09:45 pm (UTC)
I wonder if any of the answers surprised you, even as you wrote them? Or was it a pretty natural, apparent thing to write?
