I got tagged by GoldenNocturna
. As you know I usually don't do tags, but I felt like doing some of those questions for fun. (I obviously skipped the others)1. What does your Deviantart name mean and why?
I wanted to tell the stories in my mind and of my mind. Simple as that.2. What fandom were you obsessed with when you joined and what are you into now?
Naruto. I actually joined when I started writing my Naruto fanfiction "the archive". Reminds me I wanted to finish that some day. Besides that, Bleach and One Piece by now.7. What is your most popular submission?
Difficult. I often kind of fall in love with my newest piece. One that has stayed with me for a long time though, a sort of mantra to me, is this one:
3 inches taller than last week, and still growing.
So if I'm just gaining potential
to fall deeper,
why does it feel so good?
6 miles deeper than yesterday, and still counting.
But am I falling,
or just growing faster in depth?
(I just realized I mixed up "popular" with "favourite". Ah well, so be it. Most popular is old hands.)10. Summer or winter?
Spring and autumn. The birth and the ending of live, the seasons of change. 11. Rain or Sun?
Warm summer rain on my skin.12. What's your favorite type of music?
Everything. Except the stuff my husband likes *laughs*
I especially like soundtracks of computer games or any other kind of music that is completely new, unheard to me.13. PC or Mac
PC. 21. What are your top 3 favorite books?
Chris Cleave, little bee. This book will forever change your view of refugees.
Matthias Jeschke, Der Fisch ist mein Messer, Collection of German poems from a writer I heard at a reading.
Visions of heat by Nalini Singh. The second book of her Psy-changeling novels. Damn, I wish I had written that. Romantic, erotic, stunning, intelligently woven story in a fantastic world.22. Wii or PlayStation?
Computer Games!23. Name 3 of your favorite bands/singers.
Tomáš Dvořák (Machinarium Soundtracks)
Ben Howard26. What is your favorite smiley(SSSSSSSS)? 33. Buttered, plain, or salted popcorn?
ehm. Sweet? Is that the same as buttered?35. Have you been on a plane?
yepp.36. Have you swam in an ocean?
yepp.37. Have you been ice skating?
yepp. My feet don't like that though, same as in-line skating.38. Favorite sport?
dancing. swimming.39. Ever been on TV?
Yepp. In a Christian talk show because I'm not on facebook. So basically I was on TV for something I do not do. Strange world.40. Favorite salad and dressing?
I love to have a lot of different salads on my plate. Variety, you know?41. What do you do to relax?
Sitting on the coach making up stories to tell myself. If they are good, I might write parts of them down. Taking a bath.42. What is the last film you saw in the theater?
Baymax. God, that robot was so sweet and funny.44. If you could go anywhere in the world…
Norway, Sweden, Canada, Japan, China, Russia, USA, Scotland, ....
I'd also be sort of scared to go to some of those, though. Some cultures are so different. So I'm caught between curious and scared. 46. What did you want to be when you were little?
Author, artist, inventor, pilot (army helicopter), conductor (both, for the train and the music), Scientist (Spent a night trying to figure out how to do division by zero with the mental cake image), private detective (I love riddles), spy (invented my own ciphers), probably forgot several.47. What do you want to be now?
author/artist, acknowledged expert, innventor/ innovator, sort of an art director, computer game writer, knowledge manger, master of arts (any field, just because that sounds great), licensed to do Reiss profiles, maybe a politician some day, maybe I want to found a company some day
information designer for the BND (Because keeping things secret is just everything I learned studying design of information in reverse. I sometimes make up methods for information obscuring I'd tell them just for fun. Seriously, how can you keep half the names of secret service employees on a single list. I'm betting you, that was for some stupid tax reason. Probably secret service employees got to pay less taxes on weapons or whatever. The only reason there was only half the names on the list was probably that the other half is managed by another department. Ever heard of decentralised data management, guys? In other words, they really need my help.) 48. If you could eat with one person, who would it be?
Let me think. The head of the German BND to ask him (her?) what is wrong with their data management. Or Mr. Dyson, because he is a great inventor. I have a thing for the dyson air blade. That's like the Porsche of hand dryers.51. Favorite type of ice cream?
I found this really really dark chocolate ice. Like, coal-tar black. You got to combine it with a lighter type, like vanilla. Will make me have black stains all over my face and clothing, but dang it, it tastes good.52. Last book you read?
Still reading Adrienne Rich's Poetry and Prose53. Which store would you max out a credit card at?
Don't really use a credit card. But if there was a shopping centre with fair and eco-friendly produced products, I'd love to overdraft my ec-card there.56. Favorite all time movie?
No country for old men, currently.57. What was your favorite show when you were a kid?
Augsburger Puppenkiste, Sendung mit der Maus and Sandmännchen. 58. What are you listening to right now?
Sound of my typing on the keyboard59. What is the last thing you ate?
Mozzarella and tomatoes with raspberry-balsamico60. If you were a crayon what color would you be?
deep purple. Not because of the band, though I like their music. Or royal blue. 61. What is the first thing you notice about another person?
Their aura. You know, the sort of feel created by the non-verbal signals a person sends. 65. Vanilla or Chocolate?
both 66. Favorite Board Game?
Don't really know. Malefiz for old times sake I guess. Used to play that with my grandpa.67. Favorite smells?
vanilla, patchouli (not too much of those two, though), rain-wet street, the smell of food when I'm hungry, freshly cut grass, the smell of summer's sun, forest, wood, dried lavender, earth, the smell of fresh sheets to sink my weary bones into at the end of day, the smell of the night, good perfumes of strangers passing by68. What inspires you?
Prompts, pictures (fractals), stories, life.69. Do you have any piercings?
nope. Just a place to put my earrings on at rare times.70. How many siblings do you have?

I like a lot of them. But sloths are special.76. Favorite thing to do outside?
