SF Interviews 2.0 - Florete

18) Never heard of 'em. Give me a recommendation.

Snow Crash.

An absurdist take on America at its most, uh, American, and societal trends taken to (il)logical extremes. Stars a former programmer who has instead taken to delivering pizza for the mafia because it's a better adrenaline rush. Touches on topics from religion, to society and its governance (or lack thereof), to language and psychology, to the mafia, to an uncannily accurate prediction of the internet, despite being written in the 80s.

All with a wicked (and slightly insane) sense of humor. 

 

Alternatively, Anathem, if you prefer the feeling of putting together building blocks together very, very slowly, following very logical steps, until at the end you don't at all recognize and could never have predicted what you've built, but are 100% sure it makes sense. Featuring nerds and scientists locked up in monasteries where they belong.

XI. Which system of Fire Emblem magic do you like best?

XII. Favorite type of sword?

XIII. Samurai or ninja?

XIV. Eastern or western dragon?

XV. If your could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

XI) Casting from HP is a fairly cool system that I don't think has ever been quite pulled off, or I'd choose SoV. That said, I guess I'm just not all that attached to any of them?

XII) Rapier, no contest. Have one in real life.

XIII) Ninja. Not the Hollywood full black costume and mask ninjas, but the combat pragmatist 'dress in plain clothes to blend in' type.

XIV) Western.

XV) Probably just somewhere I could visit friends, honestly.

1. Have you ever been confused for another person before?

2. What does it mean to be confident in yourself?

3. What fears and doubts did you have growing up?

4. What are your favorite types of dreams?

5. What is it you like about Touhou? How has your perception of the series and what it means to you changed over the years?

I like these questions in particular quite a lot.

1) Never, not once. Nope.

2) It probably depends on who you are. For me, it's just a matter of treating myself the same way I treat everyone else, which is to say, with respect and dignity.

3) The first answer that came to mind was...
"Few, because I also had few hopes and dreams growing up, and I think you need something to lose to have something to fear. Maybe a bit (or extremely) weird, but that's how I am, I suppose."
And it's mostly true, but on thinking about it a little more, I remember I was a compulsive liar back then, and I developed sort of a... reflexive fear of multiple parts of my lives meeting with each other, in case I'd been inconsistent in the web of lies I'd woven. Of course, I was never nearly as good at lying as I thought, and those days are long past. Suppose it says something about how much escapism there was back then that the only thing I was afraid of losing was fake anyway.

4) The ones I can remember. I retain dreams so very rarely.

5) This is gonna sound weird, because the community is frankly memetically bad where it's bad, but... the community. Not the icky parts people think of, but the parts that make entire games and romhacks, beautiful art, music, quality fanfictions, etc, based on this weird niche bullet hell shooter and its setting. I like the setting a lot, too -- in a way, Gensokyo has been kind of formative in how I write my own fantasy worlds -- a lot more subjective, a little harder to grasp... and kind of their own characters, in a way. There's a lot of character that, to me, remains fairly consistent across many different visions of Gensokyo in fanworks, and I appreciate that and use elements of it in my own works.
'sides, the aesthetics are on point. Have you seen Utsuho? She has an arm cannon that fires suns, her cape is the universe and she has wings.

1) a

2) What is it you find more satisfying? Victory through a flashy display of SHEER FIREPOWER (and by that I mean deluvio de nukes a la gandhi) or through technique (taking down foes superior to you by exploiting their weaknesses, using the environment, amongst other things)? In whatever context, be it in Fire Emblem, Civilisation, or whatnot

3) DANCREACABALERFOSF--- okay, calmed down now uh... why is the dancer cabal so op?! For an organisation of support characters (promotes notwithstanding) they're almost too big of a headache... and for that matter, singer cabal when?

4) Shall we take a moment to appreciate the perfection that is Satori with glasses?

           -----who are your top five touhou girls?

5) Red is definitely the best colour-- but I'm curious. Any particular reasons why you like it, and in combination with what colours do you like it best?

2) Both can be fine -- it's more about self expression than any particular preference towards how one expresses themselves. My member title, Cogito Ergo Nukes, came from a game of AI War: Fleet Command where @Integrity, @Parrhesia and I had the 'infinitely'-powerful AI enemy on the ropes, but our final push got repelled, which... in AI War, the difficulty of the enemy scales on how much they notice you; a failed homeworld attack is crippling, so we may well have been doomed. But I had a backup plan, and warped in a Mk II Nuclear Warhead in to destroy and cripple the AI homeworld (and the surrounding worlds; nukes in AI War are serious business, not to be taken lightly) so we could do a followup surgical strike before the AI could muster up its defenses. (For reference, just exploding the nuke doubled the AI threat level, and we would've been dead in minutes had we not struck immediately; AI Wars campaigns take many hours). So in that case, it was both sheer firepower and technique, while also being the ultimate move of self-expression.

3) Because they've always got more fatigue available.

4) I answered this earlier in the thread! As I said there:
I can do top 3. I don't tend to really expand things beyond that -- my preferences change based on my mood and everything else is too broad-strokes.

    3 - Reimu Hakurei - Well, there's a reason my bot's got a Reimu picture and motif. I love the aesthetic, and the general approach of 'view every problem as exactly the same'.
    2 - Marisa Kirisame - She's pretty much me, tbh. Explosive, aggressively weird and not insecure about it, curious, fairly unkempt, and extremely creative in the strangest ways. You can probably thank @dekw for her making my top 5.
    1 - Utsuho Reiuji - She's aesthetically perfect (incredible surreal cape, nuclear power, flight, fire, all of the Haru checkboxes hit in one). She's also fairly simple, and motivated by a desire I can relate to, which is just to have home the way she remembered it.

5) I just like it because it's bright, in-your-face, and the stereotypical fire color. FF0000 red has become my brand.

Anyway, I'm mostly here because I have a Discord bot with a built-in RPG, it's on Serenes Forest Discord now, and a bunch of its players realized/remembered I had an SF account and voted for me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
