All About You

1. Describe your ideal house/home. Please go into as much detail as possible, and be sure to include your ideal geographical location in the description!. probably a really swanky penthouse apartment with a garden in a large city, ideally new york, seoul or london. it would very modern and multi-storied, and i'd have a whole seperate room for my animals to play in!

2. Imagine you’re given the classic opportunity: a genie granting you three wishes. What would you wish for? Please be as elaborate as you can. Wishing for more wishes is not permitted!

i) To be perfect in every way. I am really insecure and perfectionistic and the only way I could be comfortable with myself would be to be absolutely perfect.

ii) The world was free from all kinds of prejudice and oppression. Everybody was happy! Yay!

iii) I can eat anything and never get above my ideal weight.

3. In your life so far, what accomplishment are you the most proud of? Why? You can list more than one if you have trouble deciding. ;)

This is really sad but I don't think I have anything to put here? I am a perfectionist with no discernible talents, meaning I don't do well at much, and what I do do well in, I automatically think its not good enough. Thats very woe-is-me, I know, but its this or make something up.

4. Which of the following is most important to you: Love, Money, Knowledge, Family, Friendship, Adventure, or Pleasure? Which is the least important to you? Please explain why for each choice.

The most important to me would be pleasure. All I really want is to be happy (which I've never really been) and that seems the closest. I feel like if as long as I was happy, nothing else would really matter which is probably very naive but there you have it.

The least important would be family. I don't feel largely connected to my family, and I don't get anything particularly enriching from having them in my life. I'd much rather have close friends or loved ones than biological family.

5. What's one quote (or passage, song lyric, etc.) that effectively describes you and your values? Explain.

To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering - Nietzsche

I'm sorry thats so depressing, but after racking my brain this is the only one I could think of. I guess I have a rather cynical view of the world, but even after all of that I do believe that life is about growing stronger from the things you go through and improving as a person and finding things that make you happy.

6. How do you manage your money? On that note, how important is money/financial security to you? Go into as much detail as you can.

All of my money goes into a savings account. I have a decent amount of money, but I'm very finicky and anxious about it. I'm always double-checking the amount, and I have a hard time letting myself spend it on things I want, even though I have enough. On that note, I have no trouble buying useless crap like a a bottle of soda, but if it was a bottle of nail polish for the same price, I'd have to seriously debate with myself before I bought it. Financial security is very important to me, and I am always afraid of how much I spend, and running out of money.

7. Name (and elaborate on) some of your hobbies. What are your favorite things to do outside of school/the office?

I honest to god don't have any hobbies. I really don't enjoy doing anything. I'll put down watching movies/tv, since its what I do the most of. I also love animals, so if 'animals' can be a hobby, I'll add that.

8. Name three things you are afraid of. Explain.

i) Never being happy or feeling validated for my existence. It would absolutely crush me if I'm still as miserable at 50 as I am as 18. Heres hoping!

ii) Being immobilised. This extends from being paralysed, to be imprisoned by some sort of serial killer (modern day Ramsay Bolton maybe?).

iii) Somebody breaking into my house while I'm sleeping. This has always been a big fear of mine, though we've never had a break in so I'm not quite sure why.

9. Name (and elaborate on) your top three BEST and top three WORST qualities (personality-related, not physical). Please answer as fully as you can, as this is an important question.

i) I am very open minded about almost everything, I am willing to learn about things I don't understand and educate myself to the fullest extent before casting a judgement on something.
ii) I am very calm, it is very rare that I would lose control of myself, and I am very good at keeping my head on straight in chaotic and stressful times
iii) i've been told that i have a good sense of humour, and if i am in my element i can usually make people laugh quite easily.

i) I am very judgemental about very minor things (people's personalities, their intelligence, their bodies). Whenever I meet new people I automatically assess them and make a very critical list of flaws. It is very rare that someone passes my internal testing and I like them, and when if I do like them I hold them to a impossibly high standard.
ii) My very deep insecurity, which ties in heavily with my first flaw. I have a cripplingly low sense of self esteem and almost no self confidence. I am afraid to be around people as I fear they will dislike me.
iii) I am very detached from my emotions, and have a hard time relating to other people. When other people are distressed or excited, I do not know what to say and they often mistake my actions as me not caring about them.

A Song of Ice and Fire Related

1.How many books from the series have you completed? All five!

2.Who are your favorite three characters in the series? Why? that's really hard but:

i) Sansa. She's a lil cutie who has an incredible amount of quiet inner strength, and no matter how much crap she has to go through she's still polite and gracious and kind. I'm totally here for her everybody who has ever wronged her dying horribly while she smiles prettily and eats some lemon cakes then does some kickass needle work.

ii) Margaery. She is mastering the game so far, and she has the perfect mix of intelligence and charisma. She's also a very intriguing character as we have no idea of her true personality and intentions, which adds a sense of mystery and danger. I think she has a very strong chance of winding up on the Iron Throne and Matriach of her family which I would be thrilled with.

iii) Ygritte, my perfect wilding princess! I love how refreshingly different she was from the majority of ASOIAF characters, and her dialogue and interaction with Jon was one of my favourite parts of ASOS. I also appreciated that although Ygritte comes from a very primitive culture, in many ways she is much more liberated and advanced than other noble born characters.

(Special mentions: Asha, Fat Walda, Ramsay & Roose Bolton - I appreciate them as good villans, Dacey Mormont, Theon, Val, Jon, Myrcella, and Dolorous Ed)

3.Who are your least favorite three characters in the series? Why?

i) Randyll Tarly. Gross misogynist, huge contender for Worst-Father-of-the-Year. Enough said.

ii) Victarion Greyjoy. Horribly misogynistic rapist and murderer (which, granted, is most of the Greyjoys but w/e) who has a huge victim complex and thinks he's really the good guy who has been horribly wronged by his brothers. Umm.

iii) Arya Stark. I most certainly don't dislike her, at most its just indifference. I've never really been overly into tomboy-warrior characters, and a lot of the time I feel like she's a hugely unrealistic character. She has her moments, but mostly its just blah.

4.#1 Favorite moment in all of ASOIAF so far? Why?

The Purple Wedding. It was flat out exciting from beginning end, from the tumbling dwarfs to the very satisfying end of King Joffrey. I love the meddlesome matriach that is Olenna Tyrell, so to find out she had masterminded the whole thing was terrific. It was also great for Sansa to seize her chance at escape, even if she didn't exactly wind up in the best of circumstances.

5. In your dream-world, how would you like to see the series end, and why?

In my dream world, first and foremost - Margaery is the sole ruler of Westeros. Unfortunately Cersei will probably have to die for this to happen (and in light of Maeggy's prophecy, it would be at Jamie's hand). Tommen would be sent off as a ward of another noble family, and live happily. Dorne would become a free and independent land, with Myrcella as (though she would ultimately be a puppet for the Martells, namely Arianne). Sansa would be queen in the North, after she had disposed with Littlefinger with the help of Brienne. Cersei would realise at some point that Sansa is in The Vale and send Robert Strong after her. Sandor would come to her aid and die trying to stop him, but ultimately it would be Sansa who defeated him.

Daenerys would finally get to Westeros, and she and her dragons would go to The Wall to deal with the White Walker threat. There would be a huge battle, and both she and a resurrected Jon would be killed, though all of the White Walkers would be destroyed. Tyrion would be pardoned but sent to The Wall, and become the next Lord Commander. The wildlings would successfully settle in The North, with Val as their leader. Val would also marry Rickon Stark, who had been rescued from Skagos, to solidify her loyalty to The North. Beyond the wall, Bran becomes a tree-zombie.

Both Stannis and Ramsay Bolton would have been killed in the battle for Winterfell, however Roose and Fat Walda escaped and are still at large. Asha Greyjoy is exiled from the Iron Isles, and ends up bending the knee to Margaery and becoming Captain of the Royal Fleet. Theon and Jeyne Poole survive, and live happily in a little cottage somewhere.

Arya becomes a faceless woman and she is ultimeately the one who puts an end to Lady Stoneheart. She and Gendry become leaders of The Brotherhood Without Banners. Jamie, Brienne and Podrick will renounce their titles and wander the countryside, helping out smallfolk in need.

First I want to say that I have that Nietzsche quote stuck to my bedroom mirror. It's one of my favorites.

I'm quite torn over your application, because I see a lot of several different houses at different points, but in the end I think I'm going to have to say Tully.

This was difficult but I think I'll go with Martell

A mixture of Lannister and Tyrell

I waffled a lot, but I think I'm going to have to go with Martell... for now. I may come back and change that later.

(ALSO, I lol'd at your username.)
Gehayi: tiger heart (angevin2)gehayi on December 2nd, 2013 05:06 pm (UTC)
I'd say Lannister.
Bay Alexisonbay115 on December 2nd, 2013 06:35 pm (UTC)
Your mention of a dream house, growing strong, and Margaery makes me think Tyrell most out of the other houses.
Steph: house comboskyclearblue on December 2nd, 2013 08:55 pm (UTC)
Ooh, this is tough. I might have put you in Greyjoy if that were still an option. I think you're either Lannister or Tyrell, and between the two I'm leaning toward Lannister.
louise danger: ff x: lulu so happy you could diealethiometric on December 3rd, 2013 12:58 am (UTC)

This one is really difficult, because there's not a lot of info about who you are as a person and not much to go on until we get to the book parts of the app. However, going on what is here, I have to say I'm leaning STARK for you, though it's like a Dorne-flavored wolf rather than a dyed-in-the-wool WINTER IS COMING one. Thinking about all the Stark POV chapters, there's a lot of snap judgments about people and a lot of insecurities, too - Sansa is overwhelmed by them from time to time, Arya pretends they aren't there and fakes it until she makes it, Ned automatically categorizes the people he meets and that initial impression colors everything he does. I also think that the Starks, while not unemotional, are more logical and pragmatic than some of the other houses, and they're very proud of what they accomplish. The Starks tell a lot of stories about Stuff Starks of Days Before Have Done, and with the exception of the Martells and their heritage, I don't think many of the other houses really do - for me, that really strikes a chord with your hope that you'll have something to be proud of soon. So, a wolf it is for you!
kylathelurker on December 3rd, 2013 01:26 am (UTC)
Oh gosh this is a hard one...I'm kind of drawn to the Stark for you. You seem guarded and watchful open for new things but wary too if that makes sense? I think to oyour choices for favorite characters really lends to this idea too.
moryssa: ASOIAF - tyrellmoryssa on December 3rd, 2013 02:31 am (UTC)
I think I'm going to have to go with Tyrell for you.
Kah: Tywinwindfury on December 3rd, 2013 08:41 am (UTC)
Some Stark and Tully but overall I'm feeling the Tyrell.

Stern Mistress of Tenderness: Ned & Catsigune on December 3rd, 2013 08:27 pm (UTC)
Really tough... There is definitely some Stark in you, and I saw some Martell as well, but I think I'd rather go with a buddingTyrell. Go flower!
wintergreen: sansawintergreen126 on December 4th, 2013 02:51 am (UTC)
I'm waffling between Stark or Lannister. But I think Stark is the best fit. You're circumspect but more laid back than a Lannister.

Edited at 2013-12-04 02:51 am (UTC)
Kayikel89 on December 4th, 2013 08:15 am (UTC)
Uh, this one is very difficult. Probably Stark if only for the striving for perfection - both wolves and lions can be plenty judgmental and insecure at times, but I see Lannisters as quite unapologetic about their imperfections. So the Starks it is for me.
Kitkitrinlu on December 4th, 2013 09:58 am (UTC)
Omg your username!

lizbennetdarcylizbennetdarcy on December 4th, 2013 02:43 pm (UTC)
This was rather difficult for me. You didn't state much about yourself for me to vote based on your personality, so I suppose it would be based on the way you think about your traits and ASOIAF. You're open-minded about knowledge but rather judgemental when it comes to people, a trait you sort of share with Arianne Martell. Your love of pleasure and dislike of the misogynist characters also seem somewhat Martell-ish to me. The Martells, after all, know how to have fun and seek social justice at the same time. The constant mention of Margaery could merit a Tyrell vote, but Tyrells have always struck me as people who put family as the second most important. There are some Stark traits as well but the Starks would most likely put pleasure as one of the least important, so I vote Martell.

Lannister with shades of Tyrell
Bloody Jack Flint: Broccoli Hushrhye on December 5th, 2013 06:11 am (UTC)
Targaryen just because you remind me of Dany-- doubting your talents and feeling insecure even though you are a perfectionist. You can also be quite stoic and judgmental.
Alenkaalenky_cveto4ek on December 5th, 2013 07:11 am (UTC)
Most of your answers, especially best/worst qualities, your quote and accomplishments assessment would indicate Stark, but the fears, wishes and ASOIAF-related answers don't fit into Stark. So I'm just going to side with the Tyrell votes because it seems like they made sense of the app where I couldn't.
ms_geekette: annems_geekette on December 5th, 2013 04:23 pm (UTC)
Hmmm, can I vote House Tollett? (Seriously, if you ever do the character stamping meme after you get sorted, you are totally gonna get Dolorous Edd for the male stamp from me, b/c your quote screams Edd. ;-)

I'm kinda waffling between Stark, Tully and Tyrell for you, but when I think about houses that would consider putting pleasure first, I could maybe only see a Tyrell possibly saying that. Also, your book answers lean very heavily towards Tyrell and since a lot of folks say if Sansa had a choice, she'd live in Highgarden, I'm going to say TYRELL.

(If I say you are like a hybrid of Sansa in Highgarden with the cynicism of the Queen of Thorns, I feel a bit more confidence about this whole thing.)

Your quote sounds like something the Queen of Thorns might say. So: Tyrell.
