the excessively detailed headcanon tumblr meme

Post by nocturnalie on Tue Aug 19, 2014 11:19 pm

so you posted this freo: http://freosan.tumblr.com/post/95181477385/the-excessively-detailed-headcanon-tumblr-meme

and I jokingly sent you an ask saying 'mouse, questions 1 through 50'

and then I actually sat down and did it for Snooze

so, in case anyone is interested:

answers wrote:1. dark colours and perfection; thick blankets, heavy drapes, thick rug; only a couple of fiction books and trinkets; a whole shelf of cookbooks

2. exercise in the morning to wake up; shaving as soon as he needs it

3. arm and abdomen exercises in the morning (to wake up, and to keep fit for archery), every morning

4. take the ingredients into the dining room and do as much of it as possible in there... but usually he would be the reason the kitchen is busy

5. very clean, mostly because he doesn't own much and likes to keep track of everything he does own

6. will eat anything, but likes to stick to three meals a day; something hot for breakfast like oatmeal, porridge, eggs and bacon on the weekends; fruit and a different kind of sandwich, wrap or roll for lunch; and a creation for dinner, or a traditional meal (like spaghetti bolognaise, roast dinner--something he never had as a kid and always wanted to)

7. video games--usually sneaked, at his house, or one of the first things he suggests to do at mitz's--he is always surprised by how quickly time can be wasted when the thing you're doing is actually fun

8. cooking and eating; always vaguely guilty about eating so much, but runs like the wind to get away from the guilt and clear his own head of self-pity (I eat so much now because I was always hungry as a child)

9. in some universes--eyeliner for sure. never usually more than that. vamp!snooze will use foundation to get that human colour if he hasn't fed and is going somewhere fancy or important.

10. neurotic about his possessions; absolutely recognises it and that's why he isn't a hoarder, is always asking himself if he really needs the thing

11. adventure fiction, especially if any archer is a big character; mostly likes to study cookery; war films, fiction or non

12. adventure-fantasty, since that's mostly the only place you'll find an archer orphan who makes it through life's hardships--definitely a guilty pleasure

13. absolutely an opportunist; will flirt with whoever flirts with him; mostly likes quiet boys and loud girls; as for sexuality, he's of the fluid opinion

14. in the timewar verse, scarred from interrogation training, on his face and hands and torso mostly; most reality-verses, asthma, night terrors and old broken bones

15. depends on the verse; usually to get mouse to stop hating him (big) and save money (small)

16. depends on the verse; usually to go to cooking school and get some good apprenticeships (big), and he doesn't think long term goals are small things

17. functional, dark and form-fitting; almost always wearing some kind of jacket

18. wine

19. tries to focus on what to do the next day, but almost always falls back on thinking about how lucky he is now

20. asthma and malnutrition, from being outside all the time and from neglect

21. strangely, both gentle affection and fondness, and choking are turn-ons; turn-offs definitely include anything daddy, and anything like a blindfold

22. lists: lists of things to do, ideas to cook, things he likes or wants

23. very organised in some ways, like keeping track of his belongings or where and when he needs to be places; disorganised in that he can be distracted easily, by new experiences

24. history and warfare, athletics, and sometimes mathematics are his best subjects; usually means he is perfectly suited to be a soldier

25. in reality-verses: always settled in his own home, with a cooking apprenticeship or a job; and hopefully talk of children in the future with a significant other

26. absolutely wants to be a chef; is usually willing to be a soldier if it turns out he isn't so talented (he always doubts his own talent)

27. no picture of his parents, nothing about his grandparents--he thinks his own children might want to see them one day

28. best friend is always someone who needs him as much as he needs them: jerel (to not feel alone in a crowd), thad or damian (for solidarity against an abusive family member), or mitz or mouse; worst enemy is always thaey after he finds out what he did to mitz; sometimes it's mouse for a while

29. people are the first priority, and then children before anyone else; determination and one-track mind focus until the people are safe, and then shock

30. absolute shut down while he tries to figure out the appropriate response

31. usually the first thing given to him by the first person kind to him; something from asher, from romana or from mitz (especially something from mitz if it was handmade)

32. he wants everything he can buy that he never had, and he will never let himself buy it for himself--unless it's a cookbook or a new bow, or something as a gift for someone else

33. once he finds someone who is kind to him, he won't ever let them go

34. very private, and he only drops details a little bit at a time

35. video games are certainly a waste of time, but an enjoyable one if he gets to play them with someone else; he also enjoys sleeping in, but that is definitely a waste of time he could be using to do anything else

36. already mentioned: eating to excess, buying things he doesn't need

37. likes to pretend he is analytical, but in honesty, definitely emotional

38. type b: steady, enjoying achievement, enjoys ideas, likes to think

39. cooking, when he can't get outside or when someone needs to eat; exercise, otherwise, where he can stop thinking for a while

40. feels inferior to kind people and superior to abusive people

41. does like to hoard money; prefers to give gifts, but will give them as much as he can

42. cooking, archery, soccer, running, video games, history of warfare

43. graduates high school or military academy; not interested in college, usually some sort of vocational placement or other training (cookery or massage or bartending); likes to learn from a teacher

44. zero belief in a higher power; often appreciates the peace of buddhism or taoism

45. will only believe in the occult when he knows it to be true; does believe in aliens

46. deeds, because he often messes up with words (especially where mouse is concerned)

47. kindness and warmth; heat and passion

48. usually with sex, to be honest; he is best at physicality

49. sharp and vicious; no mercy until someone else intervenes

50. not often afraid of death, not while on his own--once he has someone to care about, he becomes more afraid of death, because he doesn't want to hurt them

okay so I'm feeling like Timewar Mitz doesn't get enough attention even though he's alpha Mitz


1. What does their bedroom look like?
A workshop/lab, since that's what it is. He sleeps there all the time when Mouse and Snooze aren't there. The room he shares with Mouse is messy as all hell, since neither of them ever think to pick up after themselves once they get distracted. When it's the three of them together, Snooze keeps them in line and the room ends up much tidier.

2. Do they have any daily rituals?
When he wakes up, he lays there before even opening his eyes and makes a mental list of all the things he has to do that day--or wants to do that day. If he's having a lazy morning, he'll stay a little longer in bed to go over what he wants to do to make himself better in the long run.

3. Do they exercise, and if so, what do they do? How often?
He used to run a lot, in one way or another, but he fell out of the habit. All things considered. He's looking forward to regenerating and being able to pick it up again.

4. What would they do if they needed to make dinner but the kitchen was busy?
Make himself small and wait as quietly as possible in a corner until whoever is using the kitchen is finished.

5. Cleanliness habits (personal, workspace, etc.)
Mitz cannot, no matter how much he tries, keep a workspace clean or tidy. He fusses over his appearance often but apart from shaving sometimes and having a wash, he feels like fussing is all he get to.

6. Eating habits and sample daily menu
Habits are bad. He only eats when he realises it's been a long time since he did that last and tends to eat snacks more than meals. Breakfast is any quick-acting caffeine-like warm drink. Lunch, most likely the next day cycle, might consist of a few pieces of fruit. Dinner or anything else would be a simple sandwich.

7. Favorite way to waste time and feelings surrounding wasting time
Passive learning. Which might mean exploring or reading or thinking hard about something. He doesn't think there's such thing as /wasting/ time. Time would let him know if it were being wasted.

8. Favorite indulgence and feelings surrounding indulging
Happy memories. He'll feel decadent, wrapped up in memories of warm hugs and soft kisses and gentle words. He feels sad that this indulging makes him sad.

9. Makeup?
Nope.

10. Neuroses? Do they recognize them as such?
Wow. He's paranoid, self-hating and riddled with anxieties. All he knows is that he is weird and he hates it. He really wishes he wasn't like that.

11. Intellectual pursuits?
He actively looks for new information about the universe and everything in it when he has a spare moment. It doesn't matter what the fact is that he might find, he revels in finding it. Knowing things. Working things out.

12. Favorite book genre?
He enjoys earth fantasy. It's like trash reading for him. The ideas are both frighteningly simple and surprisingly complex, and he loves how at odds it is with itself.

13. Sexual Orientation? And, regardless of own orientation, thoughts on sexual orientation in general?
It doesn't cross his mind. He loves who he loves and it doesn't really seem like too much of an issue that one person is male and the other is female.

14. Physical abnormalities? (Both visible and not, including injuries/disabilities, long-term illnesses, food-intolerances, etc.)
Currently he has a limp due to a rotted and dead muscle (now mostly gone entirely) in his leg from an old gun wound, scarring on his chest, back and some small scars on his face, a robot hand (of which he is very proud), prosthetic/mechanical eyes and a bit of a dicky tummy.

15. Biggest and smallest short term goal?
Find Mouse and Snooze. Be useful to the Doctor.

16. Biggest and smallest long term goal?
Have Mouse and Snooze survive the War. Survive with them.

17. Preferred mode of dress and rituals surrounding dress
Mitz will wear anything that fits him and covers him. He doesn't care what it is, and when in charge of what clothes he has everything tends to be very simple. Tunic shirts and linen pants, or a shirt and sturdier trousers if he's leaving the TARDIS.

18. Favorite beverage?
Anything caffeinated.

19. What do they think about before falling asleep at night?
When falling asleep in the lab, usually it's about what he's working on at the exact moment exhaustion takes over and he passes out. When in his bed alone, he thinks about Mouse and Snooze and what they would be saying or thinking or doing if they were with him. If they /are/ with him, his thoughts are only about their happiness and comfort and how lucky he is to have them in his lives.

20. Childhood illnesses? Any interesting stories behind them?
Apart from a dangerous reckless streak as a tot and regenerating early, Mitz got through childhood physically unscathed.

21. Turn-ons? Turn-offs?
Turn-ons include: Looking at him and /seeing/ him. Smiles. Hitched breath. Giving.
Turn-offs include: Making it all about him. Humiliation.

22. Given a blank piece of paper, a pencil, and nothing to do, what would happen?
He would sketch out at least three ideas for new inventions and maybe one of them will get passed the half-baked stage.

23. How organized are they? How does this organization/disorganization manifest in their everyday life?
Not at all! He's all over the place. It means he ends up a little distracted, a little forgetful and, as mentioned before, messy as all get out.

24. Is there one subject of study that they excel at? Or do they even care about intellectual pursuits at all?
He was top of his class in temporal engineering. TARDIS husbandry comes naturally to him, along with anything to do with other (non-sentient) technology. He cares too much about intellectual pursuits, some might say. He doesn't know what they mean about that.

25. How do they see themselves 5 years from today?
Probably a war casualty

26. Do they have any plans for the future? Any contingency plans if things don’t workout?
No. The scariest thing about the Time War is that none of them are able to see the end, know if there's any future to plan. He can't plan, not realistically, but he loves the idea of being able to go home and be safe and happy with Mouse and Snooze until time ends.

27. What is their biggest regret?
That he didn't tell Mouse how he felt sooner.

28. Who do they see as their best friend? Their worst enemy?
Mouse was Mitz's first friend and one of his best. She was his ultimate best friend until he met Snooze, and now he has two best friends. He can't believe his luck.
The Master. Though he's not even /Mitz's/ enemy. He's a stain on the Master's coat, which kind of adds insult to injury.

29. Reaction to sudden extrapersonal disaster (eg The house is on fire! What do they do?)
The solution will present itself to him quickly and if he's the only one involved with said disaster, he'll try to fix it or deal with it however quickly and efficiently. If there's someone else there, anyone else involved, he will always defer to them and fall into a worry spiral that will make him close to useless.

30. Reaction to sudden intrapersonal disaster (eg close family member suddenly dies)
Find a way to blame himself for not being able to stop it/see it coming.

31. Most prized possession?
A scarf of Mouse's that he barely touches because it still smells like her and he doesn't want it to go away and one of Snooze's coats that he left behind.

32. Thoughts on material possessions in general?
He was never allowed anything of his own except for clothes and books when he was growing up before Academy, so the idea of trinkets seem like something for other people. He doesn't think they're bad.

33. Concept of home and family?
Pressure to excel. His House let him know on no uncertain terms that if he wasn't achieving, he was failing.

34. Thoughts on privacy? (Are they a private person, or are they prone to ‘TMI’?)
People often thought he was a private type but he was just quiet and no-one talked to him. Once he gets started talking to someone, he finds it difficult to stop. So he will say things to people that he doesn't mean to.

35. What activities do they enjoy, but consider to be a waste of time?
Drawing anything that isn't technical details or concepts for future upgrades/inventions. He's a skilled enough artist, but it seems to frivolous that he ends up guilt-ridden if he draws so much as an apple.

36. What makes them feel guilty?
An easier question would be what doesn't make him feel guilty. He feels guilty about not saying things, for saying things, doing things, failing to do anything, getting in the way, speaking his mind, keeping to himself, building that robot, being too open, not being there for Mouse and Snooze when they might have needed him. He feels guilty about accidentally guilting people into doing things (look after him, rescue him, etc). He feels guilty when he has fun. He feels guilty about everything.

37. Are they more analytical or more emotional in their decision-making?
More emotional than you would think.

38. Would they consider themselves a Type A or Type B personality?
He's not ambitious, but a total workaholic. He doesn't enjoy the luxury of being free from stress, but he's not necessarily cutthroat. He's somewhere on the cusp.

39. What recharges them when they’re feeling drained?
Finding a quiet spot and reading.

40. Would you say that they have a superiority-complex? Inferiority-complex? Neither?
How misanthropic are they?
He has an inferiority-complex a galaxy wide.

41. Hobbies?
Reading. Coming up with things he can build. Building those things.

42. How far did they get in formal education? What are their views on formal education vs self-education?
He doesn't understand self-education because, relatively speaking, he led a rather sheltered life before the war. He was brain-buffed like most tots, and his aptitude during the buffing process granted him an early audience with the Schism and entry into the Academy. He soared in an academic function. It both challenged him and presented him with praise that was, before his life at Academy, was something he thought only politicians and war heroes received.

43. Religion?
That's silly.

44. Superstitions or views on the occult?
Nobody believes in all that Omega stuff, that's for tots.

45. Do they express their thoughts through words or deeds?
Deeds. Words don't fail him, but he fails words.

46. If they were to fall in love, who (or what) is their ideal?
People who see him.

47. How do they express love?
Private smiles and shared secrets. Unique creations made with his love(s) in mind, gifted to them quietly. Entire mindscapes full of their smile, their smell, the way they make him feel, all shared freely.

48. If this person were to get into a fist fight, what is their fighting style like?
Curl up into a ball, protect the head and stomach and hope that they tire themselves out before Mitz blacks out.

49. Is this person afraid of dying? Why or why not?
He is not afraid of dying. He is afraid of dying alone.

putting these here so we don't lose them

26. Do they have any plans for the future? Any contingency plans if things don’t work out?
See, she’s a Time Lady. She’s going to have a TARDIS and zip around time and space, befriending aliens and rescuing civilizations. There’s no way that’s not going to work out.
So basically no.

12. Favorite book genre?
Historical epics. But only if the author did the research. She gets too annoyed at them otherwise.

7. Favorite way to waste time and feelings surrounding wasting time
Wasting time is terrible. It’s a finite resource, and there’s always something she could be doing. But she spends maybe a little bit more time than she should on Gallifreyan social media, keeping in touch with her friends from Acadamy. Those of them that are still alive and have a net connection, that is.

36. What makes them feel guilty?
Careful observers will note that Mouse yells at people - a lot. And she makes too many snap judgements. As often as she’s proven wrong when she gets to know people, she still hasn’t broken herself of that habit. But she feels terrible when she realizes she’s crossed a line in a fight, especially when the only reason she picked it was her own bad assumptions.

4. What would they do if they needed to make dinner but the kitchen was busy?
Depends who’s in it! Hang around trying to steal stuff if she likes them, decide to grab a bowl of cereal and get out if she doesn’t.

For Timewar!Snooze.

1. What does their bedroom look like?

His bedroom on the TARDIS is quite dark--dark furnishings and dark blankets, with dim lighting. He only keeps his weaponry and clothes there, and anything Mitz has made for him; he doesn't own anything else. But he also sort of shares a bedroom with Mitz and Mouse, when they want him there. That room is much more comfortable and bright and cluttered with all their things. He prefers it there.

2. Do they have any daily rituals?

In his previous regeneration, he used to spend time cleaning his weapons every day, as well as time in the TARDIS' equivalent of a gymnasium. Now, after his rescue from the Nightmare Child, he instead spends time every day in the zero room, trying to heal. The rest of the day varies, according to how he feels--strong, or shattered.

3. Do they exercise, and if so, what do they do? How often?

He used to exercise every day, even while training at the Nightmare Child facility. It was important to keep his muscles strong, there, to avoid his body falling apart. Before that, it was important to maintain his strength even while drifting in space. He still exercises almost every day now he is back, but the exercises are more devoted to recuperation--physical therapy. He gets sick at the sight of a treadmill.

4. What would they do if they needed to make dinner but the kitchen was busy?

Usually he would be the reason the kitchen is busy. If someone else was in there, he would simply leave again and wait his turn. He can handle being hungry for a while longer. If he was cooking for someone else, he would likely bring them some fruit to stave off the hunger while they waited.

5. Cleanliness habits (personal, workspace, etc.)

He is almost obsessively clean. Military training will do that to you. Clothes folded or hung away, bed made, weapons clean in his own room; his workspace is most likely the gym, where he leaves no trace of himself behind after he has been through. He does have an idiosyncrasy, though: he likes how cluttered and messy the bedroom is that he shares with Mitz and Mouse. He likes seeing their things tossed together. Sometimes he might straighten it a bit--pick up clothes and lay them over chairs or the dresser, put the shoes together by the door, put the pillows in order. But nothing much.

6. Eating habits and sample daily menu

He tries to eat as well as he can. Hunger is always a presence in the back of his mind, even if he has just eaten. He'll usually eat fruit as breakfast or between meals; have a different sandwich every day for lunch; then for dinner, an experiment, or something he had once in a bar or a restaurant or a mess hall, or something he always wanted to have.

7. Favorite way to waste time and feelings surrounding wasting time

His favourite way to waste time would be to just sit and watch Mitz or Mouse doing whatever they're doing; Mitz working at his bench, Mouse working out, anything. Nothing really feels like a waste of time since he is a Time Lord. He has whole lifetimes ahead of him, centuries. Hopefully with them.

8. Favorite indulgence and feelings surrounding indulging

He is definitely a hedonist. He likes to feel good, to be clean and full of food and to be wearing smooth, comfortable clothing that fits him. His favourite indulgence would be food. He sometimes feels desperate about food, like he has to eat now or he'll never get to eat again. Mostly he just feels grateful for it. He'll never be bored of indulging himself.

9. Makeup?

No, no time for that, and little inclination. He likes his skin to be clean.

10. Neuroses? Do they recognize them as such?

He used to be somewhat neurotic about his privacy, and about fitting in, seeming better than he was. It has been some time since he has felt like that. In this new regeneration, after his captivity, he's much more neurotic about security than privacy. He needs to feel safe. He needs to make others safe. He's also psychically damaged, scarred, from his experience. That throws up all kinds of twitches and sudden anxieties he wasn't aware of.

11. Intellectual pursuits?

Snooze likes studying history. He was an excellent student of military history and warfare strategy. But he is not very good at mathematics or science. He will always attempt to understand what Mitz is talking about, though.

12. Favorite book genre?

Fantasy. Anything escapist. Anything not to do with war and death.

13. Sexual Orientation? And, regardless of own orientation, thoughts on sexual orientation in general?

Snooze likes people who challenge him. Their exteriors matter less.

14. Physical abnormalities? (Both visible and not, including injuries/disabilities, long-term illnesses, food-intolerances, etc.)

Since he has just regenerated, he no longer has any kind of scarring or weakness. He always focuses on the eradication of any food intolerances during the regeneration; it's usually one of the things he fixes up with the residual energy. He couldn't bear not being able to eat a kind of food. But right now he is very psychically damaged. He never learned how to develop psychic abilities beyond how to resist psychic interrogation; and during his piloting of the Nightmare Child, his memories and soul were torn apart to fuel the machine. It will take time to heal from that. Time, and education.

15. Biggest and smallest short term goal?

Reconnecting with Mitz and Mouse. Finding a way to be useful.

16. Biggest and smallest long term goal?

Surviving the Time War with Mitz and Mouse. Learning the truth about his family.

17. Preferred mode of dress and rituals surrounding dress

Snooze likes fabrics that feel nice against his skin. He has clothes for working out, clothes for missions, and then the clothes he wears the rest of the time, that make him feel... well, sexy, really.

18. Favorite beverage?

Tea. Usually peppermint.

19. What do they think about before falling asleep at night?

He used to think about what he might do the next day. These days, his last thoughts are always please let this be real and don't let me wake up in the machine again.

20. Childhood illnesses? Any interesting stories behind them?

Well, he and his parents lived in an offshore slum where there was little food and strict guards. So he suffered malnutrition, abuse, neglect and occasional beatings. Then his mother left and his father was killed--or at least, Snooze thinks he was. He himself ran away and threw himself on the mercy of the military system. After that he was mostly well-fed and thoroughly physically and mentally tested and trained, very rarely sick.

21. Turn-ons? Turn-offs?

Turn ons... being needed, being told what to do, using his mouth.
Turn offs... being restrained, blindfolded--being deprived of his senses in any way. Being yelled at.

22. Given a blank piece of paper, a pencil, and nothing to do, what would happen?

Probably name, rank and serial number, if he wasn't thinking about it. Lists of his old military friends' ranks and serial numbers. If he was thinking, then just... shapes and patterns. Keeping his hands busy.

23. How organized are they? How does this organization/disorganization manifest in their everyday life?

Old military school habits keep him very organised. Clothes neat, regular meals, regular washes, his possessions in order and to hand if he needs them.

24. Is there one subject of study that they excel at? Or do they even care about intellectual pursuits at all?

History was always his best subject. From that came strategy. Encountering Mitz and his delight for knowledge has rekindled Snooze's old interest in learning.

25. How do they see themselves 5 years from today?

Still stuck in this dead-end war.

26. Do they have any plans for the future? Any contingency plans if things don’t workout?

Being a Time Lord, 'the future' is a somewhat nebulous idea. Right now his plans include 'getting better' 'getting Mitz better' and 'getting Mouse better'. Anything more long term than that will probably include him having to fight again--whether it be against the CIA, or for them. He is not keen on that, and keeps telling himself he has to come up with a contingency plan; an alternate way to be useful and not dog meat.

27. What is their biggest regret?

His biggest regret is ever getting inside the Nightmare Child.

28. Who do they see as their best friend? Their worst enemy?

Before coming aboard the TARDIS, any best friend was just an acquaintance, someone he used to be in the military with before becoming a sniper. That career course was not conducive to friendships. But now--Mitz and Mouse, without a single doubt. Then Xi Epsilon.
His worst enemy is the Nightmare Child. And the Master.

29. Reaction to sudden extrapersonal disaster (eg The house is on fire! What do they do?)

Get the people out. Get them safe. Then get away. He no longer wants to destroy everything that wants to destroy him; he's too scared of being destroyed. Again.

30. Reaction to sudden intrapersonal disaster (eg close family member suddenly dies)

Shut down.

31. Most prized possession?

A little dragonfly robot Mitz made for him. One of Mouse's scarfs she left in his room.

32. Thoughts on material possessions in general?

Not necessary. Clothes are good. His weapons were expensive, so he maintains them, however reluctantly. Gifts people give him are precious.

33. Concept of home and family?

Here. Now. This experience in the TARDIS has been his only chance to build any kind of concept of home and family. Family are the people who are there for you when you're broken; home is the place you feel safe.

34. Thoughts on privacy? (Are they a private person, or are they prone to ‘TMI’?)

He was formerly excessively private. Too much so; his privacy became like a prison. Now, with his psi lessons, he will need to be a lot more open.

35. What activities do they enjoy, but consider to be a waste of time?

Currently maintaining his weapons is a waste of time, because he doesn't know if he can still use them, and more than that, he doesn't know if he still wants to. But it brings him the kind of peace that rituals do.

36. What makes them feel guilty?

Oh, so many things. Being rude to Mouse constantly when they first met; never having the courage to communicate properly; always taking the bait when she tried to fight. Being rude to Mitz, as well, and thinking he had no capacity for original thought. Thinking he could teach Mitz and Mouse things.
Deeper: not noticing the Master tainting Mitz from the inside out. Not being skilled enough to go after them when the Master escaped with Mitz. Being rude to the Doctor when he is supposed to be family and might have been of help in finding Mitz, recovering him.
Deeper: still carrying around all that hurt from his childhood. Never keeping in touch with old friends. Not knowing his own past, never looking for his mother or father, not knowing if they were still alive or who they even were.

37. Are they more analytical or more emotional in their decision-making?

Emotional. Over and over, he was taught to be analytical, to have that cool military head, to make strategic decisions. But it always came back to emotions.

38. Would they consider themselves a Type A or Type B personality?

Ambitious, rigidly organised, status-conscious, sensitive, impatient, proactive... Type A, for sure.

39. What recharges them when they’re feeling drained?

It used to be exercise. Shutting off his brain for half an hour while he was on a treadmill or a bike or the weights or anything like that--when he'd finish, he'd feel resettled in his skin. But now he always feels drained, because he has /been/ drained, psychically. He feels /better/ when he is with Mitz or Mouse, better still with both. But still not recharged. That will take time.

40. Would you say that they have a superiority-complex? Inferiority-complex? Neither?

Inferiority complex, for sure. He has issues with his own history--being born in a slum, or so he was told, to a couple of criminals who should never have been parents--and it makes him feel like he is never good enough to be where he is, talking to the people he talks to.

41. How misanthropic are they?

Snooze is very distrustful and even disgusted by those who have dedicated their lives to spycraft--to being someone they aren't, to deception, to using others 'for the greater good'. Anyone who uses a phrase like 'for the greater good' is suspect, to him.
But deep down, he wants to trust. He tries.

42. Hobbies?

His hobbies used to include cooking, exercise, weaponry, and reading. Now he mostly only cooks and reads, and meditates.

43. How far did they get in formal education? What are their views on formal education vs self-education?

He graduated a Gallifreyan military academy with honours, which likely meant a rank bump or two upon graduation. Many years later, he went back and retrained as a sniper and solo actor. Then he went through interrogation training.
He preferred classrooms and comradeship to the solo stuff, for sure.

44. Religion?

No. There are thousands, millions, around the universe, and yet they all seem to rely on some belief in a higher power or rewards after death. Snooze has never seen evidence of either.

45. Superstitions or views on the occult?

The 'occult' usually exists on some planet somewhere. But it has no relevance to his life.

46. Do they express their thoughts through words or deeds?

It used to be deeds, because words always seemed to get him into a fight. Now he expresses his thoughts through thinking, since he's learning psy abilities.

47. If they were to fall in love, who (or what) is their ideal?

Flippantly, he'd probably say quiet boys and loud girls. But honestly... he would fall in love with people who love him back.

48. How do they express love?

Used to be, through touch. Gentle, deliberate touches, on hands or arms or shoulders or backs. But now... he likes to say it. He never said it enough, before. Now he can't stop.

49. If this person were to get into a fist fight, what is their fighting style like?

Sharp, vicious. Fast. Eliminate the threat and move on.

50. Is this person afraid of dying? Why or why not?

Yes. He came so close to losing his existence and never realised it until he got away. He could have lost everything. He has people, now. He is afraid of dying because of the people he would leave behind.
