I have a character in the Kleptoverse known as Mr. Socks. He started out as a plot device, as a means to an end. But as the fic grew, and more fics were written, he really started growing on me.

So... I have a favour to ask.

If you'd be so kind: ask me three questions about Mr. Socks? Be it an interview style question, or a scenario, a prompt, or whatever you want. I'll write up the responses either from Mr. Socks' perspective, as a drabble, or as general: 'Mr. Socks thinks [...]' or 'Mr. Socks would/wouldn't [...]'.

Note: The questions can be about absolutely anything.

You don't need to know anything about Kleptoverse. But if you do wanna find out more, head over to ichthysninja. It gives a basic over-view, and there are some bios in there, as well as fics.

I want to explore his character further, especially seeing as he's a completely original character, and this seems like a good way of doing things.

Q1. Mr. Socks, let's get straight to the hard-hitting questions, shall we? Do you think you look like Hitler? What do you think of Hitler and Nazism?


Q2. What is your favorite breakfast cereal?


Q3. What shampoo do you use in the shower?


Q4. I know I said three, but I must ask the question that's on everyone's mind, Mr. Socks. How much is the fish?

Q1. Mr. Socks, let's get straight to the hard-hitting questions, shall we? Do you think you look like Hitler? What do you think of Hitler and Nazism?

A: Why is everybody so insistant that I resemble Hitler? I do not, except perhaps in terms of facial hair... And in any case, my style of moustache is far superior to his.

As for my opinion regarding the man himself... I have a certain amount of respect for what he managed to achieve, regardless of whether or not I agree with his ideals.

Q2. What is your favorite breakfast cereal?

A: When I eat breakfast, I like to keep it simple; cornflakes, or toast. Or whatever I can steal from a certain somebody, but that's more of a game than an insight into my eating habits.

Q3. What shampoo do you use in the shower?

This isn't something that I pay overly much attention to. I like to keep my hair in good condition, but I'm not as vain as some people in my acquintance...

... Actually, that's a lie.

L'oreal.

Q4. I know I said three, but I must ask the question that's on everyone's mind, Mr. Socks. How much is the fish?

That, young miss, depends upon the fish. And upon the purchaser. Wouldn't it be better to ask a fish monger, though?

Q1: If you could be anything in the world, what would it be and why?

Q2: What good is jello?

Q3: Are you cherry flavored?

Q4: If there were three time pieces placed into a room, what would they read and how long would they have been there?

Q5: How in the heck did that spot get there?

Prompt: Dinner in an attic with Mrs. Pots (or person of your choice)

Q1: If you could be anything in the world, what would it be and why?

A: I would be myself, just in a different situation than the one I'm finding myself to be in. Things are getting rather a bit more messy than I'd anticipated, and I'd rather not suffer the fall-out.

Q2: What good is jello?

It's a decent treat on occasion, but it isn't something I'd go out of my way to eat. Furthmore, a question for you. What good isn't jello?

Q3: Are you cherry flavored?

If I have to be, I suppose. I am rather fond of cherry pie... It's my favourite dessert, actually.

Q4: If there were three time pieces placed into a room, what would they read and how long would they have been there?

There would be one that reads 12:55am. Another would read 12:53am. Another would be blank. The first one is the oldest, having been put in place a year ago, while the second one was placed somewhere around six months after that. As for the third... that was put there very, very recently.

Q5: How in the heck did that spot get there?

It was a ninja with a bright green sharpie.

My muse wanted to respond (cause she is bugging me and I am to tired to tell her no):

Q1:

Chibi DT: "So that would make you a parallel universe self... Why not elaborate on that further?"

Q2:

Chibi DT: "How can you not not go out of your way to eat it? It's some tasty stuff! And there is nothing that jello isn't good for"

Q3:

Chibi DT: "HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! You will make a tasty Philosopher's stone that you will!"

Q5:

Chibi DT: "It has to have been a green Ninja cause it's bright in here and that would be the only way it could blend in if it was a green spot"



>.> I never said my muse was sane (nor made any sense)
17th-Mar-2008 02:25 am (UTC)
A1: As much as life is interesting right now, being in a parallel universe could be potentially less life threatening. And I've always wondered whether the grass would be the same colour in a different universe.

A2: I would say that it's far too sweet, but that would be a lie; it's more of a texture thing. I prefer ice cream.

A3: Are you suggesting that I'm going to be eaten?

A5: This particular ninja has some rather unusual talents, though she does have somewhat of a penchant for the colour green.

17th-Mar-2008 02:28 am (UTC)
Chibi DT: "The grass would be blue with spots. yes but jello takes up no room, ice cream does. It wouldn't say ' there is always room for jello' if it took up space. Yes, you will be killed, turned into the stone, and then your life force will be used to produce man-made demons. Then you agree that the ninja was green"
17th-Mar-2008 02:37 am (UTC)
Is there any particular reason for this coloration, or was it merely somebody having a little too much fun with a lot of paint?

That is another one of the reasons why I prefer ice cream. It's more filling, and therefore I have to purchase less of it.

That sounds delightfully chilling. I'm afraid, though, that I'll have to pass on the honor to somebody else.

No, I don't agree that the ninja was green. She was probably wearing some green, though.
17th-Mar-2008 09:53 am (UTC)
Chibi DT: "Didn't you know that the grass is always that color? No one ever said you had to 'buy more' with jello. It just means you won't get fat from eating too much. Who ever said you get to 'pass'? I never thought anyone got a choice in the matter. Well being that it is now St. Patties day, I'm hoping the ninja IS wearing green, otherwise they'll get a pinch."
17th-Mar-2008 02:57 am (UTC) - Okay, here we go...
“I’m going to hurt you.” the girl said, conversationally. She was sat, cross-legged on the floor in front of him, hands cradling a delicate china mug. Her glare was anything but delicate.

He said nothing. Very, very carefully said nothing, and instead busied himself with the meagre amount of food they had. As fun as it would be to offer a retort, he’d rather not find out exactly how much fine china hurt when it impacted with a persons head.

“Really, I am. Not only because of everything else you’ve done, but did you have to tell them--”

It was a comfortable attic, really. He set about wriggling into a comfortable groove in the old, battered pillow he was sat on while he worked on dinner, rather than giving into the temptation to talk back. Fine china. His head. Not a combination he wanted to become acquainted with.

“I mean, what kind of a name is Mrs. Pots?!”

God help him.

Q1. Mr. Socks, when you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Q2. What do you think of the nickname that Yuffie gave you? Somewhat related, what do you think of socks in general?

Q3. In fifty words or more, what is your favorite color, and why?

Q1. Mr. Socks, when you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to own a restaurant. I'd always quite liked the idea of being in charge of a large group of people, and, as a master chef, I'd be able to indulge in the added bonus of lots of good food.

Q2. What do you think of the nickname that Yuffie gave you? Somewhat related, what do you think of socks in general?

As the most inappropriately appropriate nickname that I've ever been given, it amuses me. As much as it pains me to admit, I've become somewhat fond of it.

Regarding socks in general: I enjoy knitting them, and wearing them. They're good for keeping toes warm.

Q3. In fifty words or more, what is your favorite color, and why?

My favourite colour? If I have to choose one, it's brown. A nice combination, somewhat between red and green (which are also appealing to me), with a lot of memories attached. Some decidedly less pretty than others, like the time a certain ninja drop kicked me into a stagnant pond…

What's the color you want to paint on trees?

Do you have a pet that you wish you could resurrect?

What would you do with a tophat?
27th-Mar-2008 05:12 pm (UTC)
1) If I were particularly inclined to paint on trees in the first place, I suppose I'd paint each one a different colour. I'd rather not paint them in the first place, though.

2) No.

3) Target practice. Or, if I had the time, I'd concoct a scheme in which the tophat would be used against a certain somebody... Death by tophat would be an interesting way to go, would it not?

1) What does Mr Socks think of the youth of today?

2) What would Mr Socks spend a million pounds on?

3) What TV show would Mr Socks like to appear on most?
17th-Mar-2008 04:34 pm (UTC)
Wait, whoops. Rephrasing!

1) What do you think of the youth of today?

2) What would you spend a million pounds on?

3) If you could pick a TV show to appear on, what would it be?
27th-Mar-2008 05:09 pm (UTC)
1) They amuse me and annoy me in equal measure. There are a select few that I spend any amount of time with, and they're old enough to be technically classed as adult now anyway. But don't tell them I said that.

2) A million pounds? I'd purchase some new knitting equipment, and possibly an upgrade on my gun... And on that note, some materia wouldn't go amiss. Though I rather imagine that I'd have to keep a close eye on it.

3)... Supermarket Sweep. Or Takeshi's Castle.

1: What's your favorite book? Do you carry around a particular book or do you have a particular book you would 'keep under your pillow' metaphorically speaking?

2: Tea - how do you take yours?

3: Which way do you swing, really? Also how do you feel when I question your sexuality? Is it annoying?
27th-Mar-2008 05:05 pm (UTC)
1) I enjoy pursuing books of numerous genres, but I will admit to being particularly fond of one I was given only a few weeks ago: 'Kidnapping For Fun and Profit'.

2) Green. If it has to be western-style tea, I'll take it with milk and sugar.

3) You're worse than a certain somebody of my acquintance. For your information, I have been married.
