Countdown 24

2011 - The Pocky year

5. 12. 2008 - 12 Character Meme

Make a list of 12 characters from one fandom. Then answer the following questions. And no advance peeking.

Fandom: ANIMOOD.

1 Schatzi (Animood-Original)
2 Kyouya (Ouran)
3 Mustang (Full Metal Alchemist)
4 Ruffy (One Piece)
5 Ichigo (Bleach)
6 Kaiba (Yu-Gi-Oh)
7 Matt (Death Note)
8 Wibi (Animood Original)
9 Ryoma (Prince of Tennis)
10 Tamaki (Ouran)
11 Hitsugaya (Bleach)
12 Sanji (One Piece)


1) Who would make a better college professor: 6 (Kaiba), or 11 (Hitsugaya)?

Erm. Ah. Well, they both wouldn't be bad, as they are intelligent enough for the job. (But none of them would give a damn and they'd refuse in the first place, I mean - students! How obnoxious!) I guess Hitsugaya would be better, because he's a tiny bit friendlier. I guess.


2) 12 (Sanji) sends 8 (Wibi) on a mission. What is it, and does it succeed?

Hihi ^^.

"Wibi, why was Schatzi humming just now, when she picked up the bentos?"
Wibi is busy slurping her cocktail and fantasizing about Grimmjow.
"And why did she have this detached grin on her face?"
Gazing out of window.
"And why did she pick up TWO bentos and not her usual ONE?"
Nipping at her glass again, not noticing it's empty.
Sanji explodes and slams his hands on the counter.
"I cannot accept this! She seems to be in love! And not with me! My heart is broken! I need to know who this insignificant scoundrel is, who will definitely not cherish my frail beauty with the love she deserves! WIBI! As you obviously have too much free time, you will instantly sneak after her and find out who she is seeing!"
He usheres a non-plussed Wibi out of the door and in the direction where Schatzi disappeared.

Wibi never figured out, how Schatzi and Kouichi instantly recognized her. Inui had said that a cap and sunglasses always worked and nobody would find binoculars suspicious.


3) What is, or would be, 9 (Ryoma)'s favorite book?

Echizen doesn't read anything - except tennis magazines and Schatzis stuff. See icon.


4) Would it make more sense for 2 (Kyouya) to swear fealty to 6 (Kaiba), or the other way around?

Oh my god. An alliance between the two of whatever sort will be the ultimate downfall of Animood as Wibi knows it. They will rule the world. Thankfully, can you imagine either of them subjugating themselves to anybody else? Good, neither can I. (Wibi is saved.)


5) For some reason, 5 (Ichigo) is looking for a room-mate. Should they share an apartment with 9 (Ryoma), or 10 (Tamaki)?

Definitely Ryoma. Tamaki would drive anyone crazy. (And Ichigo could look after Karupin when Ryoma is out playing tennis and Ryoma would have his cousin come over every second week-end to cook dinner for them, else they'd starve. They wouldn't become best friends, but it would work quite well.)


6) 2 (Kyouya), 7 (Matt), and 12 (Sanji) have dinner together. Where do they go, and what do they discuss?

They would go to Sanji's swan bistro, of course, and he would cook their favorite food. And - umm - Matt would just eat as much as he can (free dinner, yay!) and listen to Kyouya and Sanji discussing the hardships of having to look after a bunch of more-or-less-teens and one idiot.


7) 3 (Mustang) challenges 10 (Tamaki) to a duel. What happens?

(This breaks my brain. Tamaki can't seriously duel. And why would Mustang do that? He must be bored.)

Mustang tries for weeks to get Wibi to change the "Duel Monsters-duels only" rule, but she doesn't budge (Kaiba is breathing down her neck in a very not good way). Tamaki gets all excited and dresses up in a cowboy outfit with two fake pistols. Then they meet in the military building courtyard, Tamaki sees Hawkeyes dog, starts rambling about how "cute" and "adorable" it is and "Oh, that's a nice trick! I'll try to teach Antoinette to do that!" and they end up playing with puppy instead of duelling. Tamaki has that effect on people.


8) If 1 (Schatzi) stole 8 (Wibi)'s most precious possession, how would they get it back?

Don't dare to, Schatzi. Don't even think of it. Don't do it yourself (as Nami as you may be), don't have Matt and Mello do it, I'll know. You better not. I will kick you out of Animood, destroy your cellphone and arrest anyone, who tries to get in contact with you, and then I'll shut you into a cell and force you to play Duel Monsters all day with Weevil Underwood.

(Oops. I missed the question.)

Soooo~, if, IF (and that's a very big if) you managed to steal - umm - my major's badge? Grimmjow photobook? "Saggi the Clown of darkness" duel monster card? Animood Flausch-diploma? (Your choice) - whatever, I would bribe Kyouya into mobilizing his Ootori army to go up against the M&M mafia. Then Grimmjow would have to fight Ichigo (hey, this plot is familiar) and Kaiba (also bribed) would have a hacking competition with Kouichi. Atobe with Hyoutei could have severe tennis battles with Ryoma and Seigaku (which Hyoutei would loose, because Inui would poison them all) and I'd better stop now.

Just don't.


9) What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted 4 (Ruffy) and 1 (Schatzi) to work together?

Easy. Ruffy wants to eat Schatzis superb orange crêpes and Schatzi wants to hook up with Ruffys brother Ace.


10) If 7 (Matt) visited 11 (Hitsugaya) for the weekend, how would they get along?

Get along? Well, none of them would have anything to say.

Matt would be bored (because there's no play station) and spend his time doodling on his Nintendo or staring after Matsumoto. Hitsugaya would decide that his presence isn't required, try to catch up on paperwork and be annoyed by Matsumoto dropping in to bother Taichô.


11) If you could command 3 (Mustang) to perform any one task or service for you, what would it be?

(Mustang? Damn, no fun. I wanted 5.)

Mustang - he could clean my windows. All of them, in the whoooole mansion.


12) If 2 (Kyouya) had to choose sides between 4 (Ruffy) and 5 (Ichigo), which would it be?

Uh-oh. Would the Shadow King join forces with the pirate king or the soon-to-be-most-awesome-of-vaizards? Okay, he'd choose the most merits and that would definitely be the prospect of finding the One Piece. And he has experience in handling idiots and making them do the things he wants (see the infamous Bali photobook).


13) What might 10 (Tamaki) shout while charging into battle?

(I googled.)

The WoW video features a group of players discussing a detailed battle strategy while one of their number, Leeroy, is away from his computer. Their plan is ruined when Leeroy returns and, ignorant of the strategy, immediately charges headlong into battle shouting his own name as a battle cry. His companions rush to stop him, and his subsequent actions ruin the meticulous plan and the encounter ends in failure for the group.

"Leeeeeeeeroy Jenkins!"
(The first time Haruhi hears that, she turns around at Tamaki in utter shock. He is sitting between the twins, having talked them into letting him try out Soul Calibur multi-player modus on their new PS3. How the hell does he know that? But watching Tamaki sucking badly and hearing the twins yell at him, she thinks it fits perfectly.)


14) 1 (Schatzi), 6 (Kaiba), and 12 (Sanji) are having dim sum at a Chinese restaurant. There is only one scallion pancake left, and they all reach for it at the same time. Who gets to eat it?

Schatzi of course. Kaiba doesn't eat anything except toast and Sanji is too much gentleman to deny his blossoming maiden the delicious pleasure of a sweet handmade scallion pancake. Although he might fret about the fact, that he wanted to cook for Schatzi himself and why is he out eating again?


15) What might be a good pick-up line for 2 (Kyouya) to use on 10 (Tamaki)?


Kyouya doesn't bother with pick-up lines. He just needs to wait until the novelty of Haruhi has worn off and Tamaki remembers he still has a wife to take care of.

(He pales, as he realizes what he just thought, and immediately logs into the stock market to drown his thoughts in business. When Tamaki calls in the next day, he pretends he has work on a school project left to do, which no, Tamaki cannot help with, and which will require at least the rest of the afternoon. He cuts Tamaki's complaints short by turning on his heel and heading to his room, not even bothering with a good-bye. Three hours later, when he takes a break from his Kant lecture, he hears soft piano chords drifting up from the music room downstairs, and when he goes to take a look, he finds the blond in the midst of Chopins "Raindrop" étude. Tamaki doesn't notice him until the piece is finished and before he can ask what the hell he is still doing here, Kyouya is suddenly swept up by an excited "Are you finished now? I've got loads of pictures to show you, Papa was in Venice, and look what he brought me, isn't it lovely?" and Tamaki stays over for dinner (Kyouya's father is on one of his business trips and Fuyumi insists that Tamaki tell her about Murano for what must be the fourth time) and it's the best dinner Kyouya ever had in this cold house he calls home.)

However, eventually he grows impatient, and decides that "Tamaki. In the car. Now." is a very good alternative.

(Sorry, but Tamakyou is like bittersweet chocolate. I couldn't resist. And, Schatzi, this pick-up line of yours will forever rule my mind. Thank you.)


16) What would 5 (Ichigo) most likely be arrested for?

(Thank god, it didn't pick Matt. The list would have been endless.)

He should be arrested for looking so damn handsome.
As long as you can't get arrested for skipping school permanently, probably attempted patricide.


17) What is 6 (Kaiba)'s secret?

In the darkest corner of his closet, he still keeps a horrible neon-green sweater with a black dragon on the front, a present for his fourth birthday, hand-made by his mother. Not even Mokuba knows.


18) If 11 (Hitsugaya) and 9 (Ryoma) were racing to a destination, who would get there first?

Hitsugaya would go into Bankai and fly.
Echizen would shoot him down with tennis balls.
Then Histugaya would freeze the entire track.
Echizen would get out his racket and use it as a snowboard. No, he wouldn't, he'd borrow someone else's racket.
Then Hitsugaya would redirect the ice path to the next tennis fields.
Echizen would forget all about the race.
Hitsugaya would use shunpô on the rest of the way. Just because.


19) If you had to walk home through a bad neighborhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of 7 (Matt) or 8 (Wibi)?

As it's me - my company ^^. Matt would steal my purse.

Anybody called Schatzi - Matt. He'll beat up everyone he encounters, steal their purses and then invite you to dinner.

Anybody else - also Matt. He is the biggest badass in town anyway (next to Mello) so nobody will make any problems. The hard part however, will be to get him to walk home with you.


20) 1 (Schatzi) and 9 (Ryoma) reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by 4 (Ruffy)'s sinister secret organization. 11 (Hitsugaya) volunteers to help them, but it is later discovered that he/she is actually a spy for 4 (Ruffy). Meanwhile, 4 (Ruffy) has kidnapped 12 (Sanji) in an attempt to force their surrender. Following the wise advice of 5 (Ichigo), they seek out 3 (Mustang), who gives them what they need to complete their quest. What title would you give this fic?


It is called "The endless tale of fire and snow".

Schatzi and Ryoma are currently on their honey-moon (thus the reluctancy, they highly dislike being disturbed). Ruffy is being pissed off that Schatzi had the impertinence to dump his brother, who has ever since - along with the burning passion of his love - lost the ability to create fire. As revenge Ruffy vowed to extinguish all other fires throughout the world and thus, the straw hat pirates roam the world and obliterate every flame they find.

In the meantime Schatzi and Ryoma have found and are protecting the last remaining fire - the olympic flame, symbol of eternal light and unfailable method to reenlighten the world. As obviously the best hiding place for a flame would be in the middle of ice (because nobody would think they were stupid enough to try that), they take up Hitsugayas offer to build them an ice palace. But, alas! Hitsugaya uses the next opportunity to kill the flame (okay, I'm bending the spy thing a bit), as he is thrilled by the idea of a world without fire.

Ryoma gets really really angry and frustrated ( "Why doesn't he play tennis? It would be so easy, I'd just beat him up in a match and the matter would be over with..." ). Schatzi gets hungry and - oh, an idea. Hungry → food → Sanji → smoking → lighter. The easiest and now very last way to make fire has been under their very noses from the beginning! They hurriedly make their way to Sanji's swan bistro, but as they open the door all they find is an empty storage room and they know that Ruffy was faster. (The "force their surrender" part is Ruffy logic: no Sanji = no food.)

In this moment of deapest despair, when all hope seems lost and slowly, oh so slowly, not even Ryomas second jacket can keep Schatzi from shivering, Ichigo turns up (bringing them an extra set of thick, warm, fluffy winter coats, courtesy of Ishida Inc.). Being the considerate guy he always is and because he can never deny Schatzi anything, he listens to her ramble and complain and whine. But in the end, all he can offer is an "I'm sorry, Schatzi, I'd really like to, but I'm afraid I can't just remove the source of the whole problem with a flick of my fingers."

Schatzi stares at him, then the lightbulb flicks, she jumps up, gives Ichigo a "Thank you!" kiss on the cheek and buzzes off. Ryoma is fuming. Ichigo doesn't play tennis.

Mustang is very happy to be disrupted from his paperwork - and for Schatzi nonetheless - and a phone call later he meets with Ace - they are good acquaintances, after all - and a man to man talk about mean girls and broken hearts and the superiority of two hour flirts over long-term relationships he taps Ace on the shoulder and his fire is back. The reenlighting of the rest of the world takes a lot more time, because Mustang doesn't bother to hurry on his trip around the world, but in the end, (after Schatzi apologized to Ryoma, who had a aggression relieve match with Atobe in the meantime, and Ruffy got five dinosaur-sized shares of fresh steak) everyone is happy again.

Well, except for a sulking Hitsugaya. At least he gets to keep his ice palace.




Now, if you are in for the same in Ouran Crack, go read this. I loved it. I laughed the whole way. (Attention, this contains pairing questions with an overload of male characters and the mention of mpreg maybe deserves extra warning, but it's so cracked up that it doesn't seriously damage your brain. I guess.)
