I Get To Play Catch Up On Tags: Part Two

(Quick Announcement before I start the post: the Mission: Metal Art Competition winner will be revealed next week! If you submitted an entry, please alert me in a comment so I can make sure your on the list for my judge. Thanks!!!)

So, does this picture look familiar? ;-D If not, you should check out last weeks post to read my first set of tag catch ups. XD
Here goes, 
I Get To Play Catch Up On Tags Again!!! Yay!!! 

Of Rising Authors Tag (I think???)

No tagging back. (Darn.)
Tag Four People. (Ain't doing that, sorry.)
Thank the person who tagged you. (Thanks, Ral!)

1)      What genre of books is your favorite (to read or to write)?
Sci-Fi to write (I also really like Post-Apocalyptic) and Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or Mystery to read.
2)      What would happen if your MC Loses?
The Four Brothers will take over the U.S.B. base and kill the families that take shelter there.
3)      What would happen if a secondary character becomes the MC?
Ian kind of already took the spotlight from Shae, so…yeah; I don’t really need to answer this question. ;-D
4)       How do you get your ideas? 
Pinterest, music videos, and talking to friends.
5)      What do you like to do to your characters (That's NOT torturing them. I literally have asked this before and TWO PEOPLE have said they torture their characters)?
Torture them. Oh, wait, *reads question again* ooops, I mean give them terrible backstories and great personalities. XD
6)      What would happen if your villain had a change of heart?
He wouldn’t try take over the world?
7)      Would you rather: never write again OR write for the rest of eternity. Never stopping. (I know, I'm evil >:D)
Never write again, because (I’m totally taking what other people have said on this tag), I can just dictate my stories to other people. ;-D
8)      (If you do Indigo's challenge, you don't have to answer from here on. :D) What's your favorite style to write in? (First-person, third-person, etc.)
I’m doing Indigo’s challenge, but I’ll still answer the question. ;-D Third person, as I prefer seeing the big picture of the story and the viewpoints of all the characters.  
9)      Any tips for writing? If so, please share.
10)  What is the hardest thing for you to write?
Emotional scenes and romance. 

Okay, that one's done! Now, for Tag Number Two!

Of Rising Authors Tag (Surprise, surprise!) XD

-No tagging back. (Okie-day.)
-Tag four people. (Ain't doing that; I think we've all gotten this tag. XD)
-Thank the person who tagged you. (Thanks, Indigo! :-D) 

1.       What is the reason you write?

To have fun, to share my stories with the world, and to glorify God.

2.       When did you write your first story? How old were you and what was it about? (Prepare to cringe, mwahaha.)

I think I was about seven, and it was about a little leaf bug that I had to let go outside. I remember it being very sad.

3.       Do you have one particular word that, no matter how hard you try, you can't learn the spelling of?

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious?  Just kidding. ;-D Um, science and school. I know, those are kind of easy; but I am a terrible speller. Thank goodness for autocorrect!

4.       Do you sometimes feel that your characters take on a life of their own and start doing whatever they want?

YES!!! Meet Liam. A character who threw himself into my story of Mission: Metal and does whatever he wants. Good thing I like him, or he would have met the chopping block long ago.

5. Would you date one of your characters? (SORRY NOT SORRY)

Well, I don’t date; but if I did, maybe Ian Eden? I also like Malcolm, my super hero character.

6. Imagine you could pick four fictional characters to invite to a dinner party, who would they be and why would you invite them? (They don’t have to be book characters, they can be TV show or movie characters too.)

1.       Sherlock Holmes because he’s my favorite fictional character and I want to learn how he observes people and deduces things from them.
2.       Gandalf the Grey because he’s wise and I could learn a lot from him. (And I would ask him if he could take me on an adventure? Please?)
3.       Doctor Strange because I would like to learn how to create a portal and travel the multiverse.
4.       Ezra Bridger because…he’s Ezra.

Can you just imagine that dinner party? XD XD XD XD XD XD

7. If you could only read books of ONE genre for the rest of your life, what genre would that be?

WHY??? Dang. Well, probably fantasy because according to some people Star Wars and Star Trek are technically fantasy since true Sci-Fi doesn’t have aliens or any mystical powers, so I could still read LoTR and Narnia as well as some Sci-Fi that incudes aliens. XD But then that means I couldn’t read Sherlock. *gulp* :-Z

8. What would happen if you switched places with your MC? Or if your MC switched places with you, and had to live in your world? Explain.

She would be on edge all the time, expecting something to happen that never would; and I would be losing my head. Literally.

9. Do you sometimes come up with perfect characters, a perfect fictional world, and a perfect subplot, but you have no actual story to put them in? (I can’t be the only one….)

Not yet. :-D

10. Are you sick of answering questions by now? (Come on, be honest.)

Yes, thanks for asking. XD

Now, last tag!!! This one is not a writing tag. XD

Thank the person who tagged you. (Thanks, Zella!)
Answer their 11 questions.
Tag 11 people. (You don't have to tag 11 people.)
Give them 11 new questions.

1.                   What is your ambition?

To glorify God in everything I do.

2.                   Would you like to be famous? Why or why not?

No. I like to keep a low profile. *cue ninja pose* I don't really know why. 

3.                   Is it morning, afternoon, or evening there right now?

4.                   What are you thankful for?
Right now? Or in general? I’ll do right now; it’s easier. ;-D Right this second, I’m thankful for silence, biscuits, and friendly people.
5.                   What is your favorite playground equipment?
Monkey bars or swings. Yes, I know I’m fifteen. Playgrounds are still fun. ;-D
6.                   What is your favorite fruit?
Pears. Really, really soft yellow and green pears. (I’ve never had a red pear.)
7.                   Do you like gifs?
I could not stop laughing when I saw this. Especially because I like chocolate truffles. Thought you'd enjoy it. Hugs Ivet
Community Post: 80 Signs You're An INTJ : "There are times...with misinformed moralizers..."
Thank you for being there during the good, the bad, the really bad, and the ugly (especially the ugly - I mean, who looks good in the mo
8.                   On a scale of 1-10, rate ovens.
1 being negative and 10 being positive? 5. I’m neutral towards them.
9.                   Favorite sport?
Kung Fu. Yes, it’s a sport. (I don’t like other kinds of sports.)
10.               What is your favorite quote?
I have a few, not just one; so I’ll put them all down right here. XD

I probably have more, but I forgot them. I'm also not including Bible verses; I have too many of those. Maybe I'll make a blog post of them...;-D
11.               What is the reason behind your blog name?
I like music, mysteries (Sherlock!), Middle Earth, and A Wrinkle in Time, so I thought it was appropriate. I also like the letter “m” because that’s the letter my name starts with. ;-D

Now, I'm tagging Tes, Indigo, and Sarah.
Here are your questions! They're super random and probably won't make much sense in context, so have fun!!! :-D
1. Do you like chocolate?
2. If you had to choose between being a ninja or a super hero, which one would you pick?
3. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being the lowest and 10 the highest): rate fireplaces.
4. What is your favorite time of day?
5. Are you more introverted or extroverted?
6. If you had to choose between going to Paris or Cairo, where would you go?
7. What is your favorite drink? (No, you may not choose water. ;-D)
8. Black or White?
9. If you had to choose to either write for the rest of your life, or draw for the rest of your life, which would you pick?
10. Dogs or cats?

11. Favorite current song.
