Dai's Application for Quinque Terris

1) Tell us your name (or what you like to go by) and a little bit about yourself.
My real name is Anna, but I go by either Dai or Daika on the internet. I'm a 17 year old female with a love for Pokemon, MLP:FiM, drawing, reading, writing and creating characters. I live in merry ol' England, where I fulfil the stereotype of British people loving to complain about anything (especially the perpetual rainy weather). I'm not too serious but my thoughts tend to get pretty deep when I'm in a philosphical mood, and this comes in handy for my writing and roleplaying.
As for a life, I don't much have one (especially not at the moment), so there would be no worries about me being inactive. I will make time to worship my left hand even though I do nothing with it.

2)Were you referred to QT by an existing member, if so, who?
Yes, by both of you (Ver and Sammy). I expressed interest the moment I heard about it, and now that it's open I'm jumping on the chance to apply. I would've done it sooner but being in another country kind of occupied my time.

3)Could you give us three examples of your characters? Stats, a bio, and a ref are ideal. Links to lookups or petpages are fine.
If links are sufficient, I'll provide you with the three:
Tanscope
My most successful Xweetok character, he's been with me for over two years and has developed quite a bit since I first introduced him. He is also one of the Xweetoks I hold most dear but unfortunately I haven't done anything with him in a while, so if I get the chance to roleplay him in QT I will be extremely grateful.
Lookup
Petpage

Laibell
Possibly my favourite Xweetok character, Bell was created around the same time as Tanscope to be his companion. Originally she was created in the spur of the moment in the middle of a roleplay, but I loved her personality so much that I decided to keep her. Because I love her sass to bits, I really want to roleplay her, too. She was originally based off the character Sealink from The Wild Road, but as I've had her she's developed into a character of her own, but still retains much of Sealink's qualities, complete with the Southern accent.
Lookup
Petpage (sadly nothing but a ref is on there at the moment)

Amnesias
He is very new compared to my other characters, but he's already firmly settled into my little 'family'. I loved his personality from the outset and since I don't get the chance to roleplay him much, I'd love to here.

4) QT focuses mainly on writing and roleplay, though we appreciate other skills too. Tell us what you like doing.
I spend most of my time drawing, writing, reading or playing video games, but I especially like drawing and writing. My art is dedicated to my characters, or fanart, but sometimes I take art trades or gift art. However, my writing is entirely for my own enjoyment unless I'm roleplaying. And as decent as I am at drawing, writing is the hobby I would like to invest most of my time in. I just prefer being able to weave a scene with words, and I feel like I have much more freedom with writing than drawing.

5) Why do you want to join QT?
For starters, my friends are there, and there's nothing more fun than roleplaying with friends, yes? I just like being in good company, and sharing my interests and hobbies with others is a good way to spend the day. As well as this, QT will give me the chance to roleplay characters I normally wouldn't be able to, which is pretty great.

6) Please write a couple of paragraphs to show us what your writing is like (pre-existing writing is fine, as long as it shows us your skill).
Extract taken from Cloud Flute, one of the series I wrote for the Neopian Times. Specifically part 2.

The dark, star filled sky cloaked itself over the Haunted Woods like a murky blanket. The moon's yellow glow illuminated the spindly trees. A chill wind passed over the woods, ruffling the grass and disturbing the leaves. On such a night as this, it was better for foreigners of the woods to stay inside, lest the residents come out to play...

Except one resident had no intention of spending her night romping about in the woods. She stood before her cauldron, paw raised to drop something in the bubbling green liquid. Blowing the hair from her face, she glanced over at her spell book, muttering things to herself. "No, not this... But this may do, yes, this would work..."

A loud knock at the door made her jump with a shriek, her concentration completely shattered. With no hope of getting it back, her mood immediately soured. The faerie Bori pulled open the door, glaring at her visitor with the most unwelcoming expression.

A hooded figure greeted her with a hesitant, "...I came at a bad time, didn't I?"

."Indeed you did," the Bori snapped. "Hurry up and get inside. Oh, and shut the door."

The figure tentatively entered the house, closing the door slowly after him. He took off his hood, his red hair looking a complete mess.

."No wonder you wear that hood all the time; you look like a JubJub having a bad hair day," the Bori remarked scathingly, gesturing at a torn chair for her visitor to sit.

The Neopet – a Xweetok with a youthful but serious look about him – cushioned himself in the chair as best he could, daring not to speak until the Bori spoke to him first. In this mood, anything could set her off.

."So I hear your services are more than adequate," the faerie Bori began, taking up her position at the cauldron. Her back was turned to her visitor.

."How do you know about my work?" the Xweetok asked, apprehension clearly shown in his voice. "I don't go touting my services around like some careless Neopet."

."Word gets around. Don't change the subject," the Bori sighed, her tail tip twitching with irritation. "Now, I want you to fetch me something. I hear you can get past any guard. Am I right?"

7) QT is home to people of varying races, genders and orientations. To prove you will be respectful to these people, write 'SMUPPET BUTT'.
