A good one. Fantasy, and yet… I picked it because the name of the author sounded like one of those Prodigal names from Wicked Gentlemen. They say Rothfuss is a variant of Rotfuchs, from the Middle Low German form fos ‘fox’, a nickname for a clever person.

Indeed. Rephrasing Strugatski “In fact, whose sick fantasy could be inspired by a sofa?” – whose sick fantasy could be inspired by a life story of a genius? :)

Your result for The Who are you in the FF Universe Test...

You are Bahamut!


Do you hear that? Something on the horizon stirs a cyclone from thin air, clouds boil and darken, the air grows chill as an unmistakeable sound pierces the air. The clouds part and a stream of pure white light streaks the sky, obliterating anything it touches, sparking countless explosions and drawing both gasps of terror and screams of agony in chorus. Granted, Bahamut has been known to play both sides, but he's usually on the side of good. He's extremely old, very wise, and lacking none of the power he wielded long ago. Basically he's a demi-god, but for our purposes he's the embodiment of all the best traits - intelligence, spirit, strength and good. Appearing in practically every single Final Fantasy in some form or other, Bahamut is synonymous with not only power, but strength of will, wisdom and strength of character.

I must applaud you, test taker, for you are in a class all your own. If you really measure up to Bahamut's impressive list of attributes, you're alright in my book.

Your polar opposite is the Goblin. You're likely to get along with anyone aligned with Good.

"Little by little, he lost everything, except of the most important - his strange, soaring soul; he lost his frailty, becoming broad of bone and strong of muscle, his paleness gave way to a deep tan, he relinquished his refined carelessness of movement for the sure drive of a working hand, and there was a sparkle reflected in his thinking eyes as if he gazed into a fire. And his speech, having lost its uneven, haughtily shy fluidity, became brief and precise, as the thrust of a seagull at the quivering silver of a fish."

о-немногу он потерял все, кроме главного - своей странной летящей души; он потерял слабость, став широк костью и крепок мускулами, бледность заменил темным загаром, изысканную беспечность движений отдал за уверенную меткость работающей руки, а в его думающих глазах отразился блеск, как у человека, смотрящего на огонь. И его речь, утратив неравномерную, надменно застенчивую текучесть, стала краткой и точной, как удар чайки в струю за трепетным серебром рыб."

Which qualities of my favorite (movie) characters I possess.

1) Dr. Gregory House.

house_hugh_laurie-711333



- an ability to see humor in seemingly humorless situations;
- bitchiness;
- stubbornness;
- an ability to see that I was wrong;
- etc., etc. - in other words ‘m very-very similar to House (with obvious difference in IQ).


2) Bill Adama

Bill Adama



- a sense of responsibility; almost total inability to act on ‘oh, whatever’ basis.


3) Tyr Anasazi


Tyr



- selfishness, self-centeredness;
- I like to read a lot.


4) Agent Dana Scully


gillian_anderson01


- same as for Dr. House.


5) Sam Carter (in SG-1; Atlantis version is kind of yucky)


carter_new
- tendency to spend free time reading/writing scientific papers.



6) Bertie Wooster


JWb


- I have a ‘code of Woosters’ too. :D



7) Nobody
MY_NAME_IS_NOBODY-4

- I try to be as ‘big’ as he is.


9) Elrond of Rivendell



elrond1


- quoting Master Erestor ‘…I focused on the speech I had just written for Elrond. I was very proud of it – it is tricky business to write speeches for Elrond without our fellow Elves noticing that he had not written them himself. I had quilled down a first draft, then added pompous sayings and a handful of doomed, doom and doooom for good measure, and now it really had the Elrond touch.’

"Glorfindel, you are the nail in my coffin," Elrond said and sighed, covering his eyes with his long hand and turning around. "I have a headache … I'll be in my quarters … or the wine cellar …"

"This indeed is the mystery of awareness. Human beings reek of that mystery. We reek of darkness; of things which are inexplicable. To regard ourselves in any other terms is madness. So don't demean the mystery of man in you by feeling sorry for yourself or by trying to rationalize it. Demean the stupidity of man in you by understanding it. But don't apologize for either. Both are needed.


"One of the great maneuvers of stalkers is to pit the mystery against the stupidity in each of us."

You are most like Elrond. Although you are very serious, you're not above having a good time. It's just that your definition of a good time is pretty different from other people's. You're very smart, so use your knowledge to help others! People may think you're hard nosed, but all your friends know better.

'Andromeda's favorite moment:

Rev: Dylan, have you talked to Harper lately?

Dylan: No, why?

Rev: He's killing himself trying to repair all the damage we've sustained. He blames himself for letting his guard down.

Dylan: It's not his fault. Even an experienced High Guard pilot couldn't have stopped all those missiles.

Rev: And a High Guard pilot would know that. But, Harper is not High Guard. None of us are. In fact, we're simply five civilians trying to do the work of 4000 soldiers and feeling, well, quite frankly, a bit overwhelmed.

Dylan: You think I'm expecting you to react under pressure like veterans?

Rev: You tell me.

Psychopathy doesn’t affect IQ or ability to think rationally. Many criminals are psychos, but many psychos are not criminals (or they never get caught). The majority of psychos *are not* serial killers.

"...More often than not, the typical psychopath will seem particularly agreeable and make a distinctly positive impression when he is first encountered. Alert and friendly in his attitude, he is easy to talk with and seems to have a good many genuine interests. There is nothing at all odd or queer about him, and in every respect he tends to embody the concept of a well-adjusted, happy person. Nor does he, on the other hand, seem to be artificially exerting himself like one who is covering up or who wants to sell you a bill of goods. He would seldom be confused with the professional backslapper or someone who is trying to ingratiate himself for a concealed purpose. Signs of affectation or excessive affability are not characteristic. He looks like the real thing."
Hervey Cleckley, M.D., The Mask of Sanity

The condition in question is very complex, and psychos differ greatly from one another, but some things stay the same.

1) Most importantly, a psycho can’t feel guilt, remorse or shame, but he is extremely good at *faking* it. A psycho never ‘second guesses’ himself.

The guy who honestly asks himself (not on public, not *for* public) ‘what have I done’ is definitely not a psycho. Psycho, on the other hand,

a) will try to deny any involvement, if he thinks you don’t know what he have done;
b) if he knows that you know and can do him harm for it, he will try to *rationalize* his actions *for you* (I had no choice, it was the right thing to do, he wasn’t an innocent victim, blah…), but he doesn’t need any rationalizations for himself.
c) if he knows that you know, but not going to harm him (you love him, etc.), he will dismiss your attempts to talk to him about his doings as unimportant/boring (‘do you really want to talk about it? Let’s rather fuck/eat/blah…’)

2) Psychos ‘are the ultimate realists’. ‘Disillusioned’ is not a good term for them, it’s more like ‘never been illusioned’. They see exactly how the things are.

3) Psychos are never psychotic and almost never nervous (no ‘oh, my god, what’s gonna happen to me’ nonsense), but they can experience frustration, be angry.

4) Psychos do not feel empathy.
If a normal person sees his worst enemy in pain, the knee jerk reflex is to stop that pain. It’s an *effort* for a normal person to see somebody suffer. Yes, a normal person can *pretend* indifference, but ‘inside’ he will be suffering together with his victim. Psycho, on the other hand, will feel nothing, or even enjoy the scene.

5) They are very good at manipulating people around them. Psycho would know exactly what to tell you, how, and when, to get from you whatever he wants. He’ll cheat you out of your life if he wants to.

6) all of the above (plus natural charm, and they’re charming guys, they always know what to say, and never talk themselves into embarrassing silences) makes them natural at leadership, especially in military, with one exception – they are not good at *taking* orders. So if such a Psycho is not a moron, he will find a position where he will be only giving orders, not taking them. Psychos are very good as guerilla-war group leaders.

7) Psychos are almost never sincere. Their façade is always faked.

8) Psychos live day by day; they can’t have long term plans and goals. If a guy thinks ‘in ten years I’ll make O-7 and retire’ he is almost definitely not a psycho.

9) They almost never commit ‘premeditated’ suicide.

10) Not all of them, but some tend to get bored easily, so they look for thrills (high speeds, blah). In that search they tend to ‘recklessly disregard’ their own safety and the safety of others.

"I was just wondering. Out of curiosity." He tilted his head and she caught the glimmer of his eyes hiding beneath thick lashes. "Do you think... in your professional opinion, I mean... do you think I'm a sociopath?"

Whatever she'd been expecting, that wasn't it. The question, and the flat but curious tone, caught her enough off guard to have her hands tightening on the porch rail to steady herself. "Excuse me?"

"Really. I want to know. What you think, I mean. See, I did some research, and... maybe I'm not an expert, but I don't really think I am. I can see how certain behaviors, or certain actions, could be made to fit the categorization, but..." He shook his head, obviously frustrated, then tried again. "I mean I get the concepts of altruism and friendship and love and all. Logically. I can understand that some, even most, people are motivated by them. I just... I don't know that I've ever felt those things the way other people experience them. But I don't know that I necessarily couldn't. And how do we ever know if we're experiencing things the way other people do. It's not that I don't have emotions, I think I just don't respond to them the same way. As other people. And I can't quite separate out what's me versus my training... it's hard, you know? Being on the inside of my head, it's hard trying to figure out, objectively..." He trailed off and looked at her helplessly.

I always thought that writers make fandom, and not the other way around, but, apparently, I was wrong. Same writers, different shows – what changes? IQ is heritable, ethics are ‘family’ thing, books they’ve read will stay with them forever. What makes SGA and ‘The X Flies’ fandoms so strikingly different?
Many of ‘The X Flies’ stories have epigraphs, quote French (and even attempt to quote Russian) in right places, I bought oodles of books suggested by characters (in canon and stories alike), every ethical hole in canon addressed by fandom. Even those holes I was inclined to overlook. *g*

I still prefer to read particular writer, in other words I dig through the Basement until I find some story I like, and then I go and read every story by the author.

Ratadder with his Chemical Agents is still the best.

I also like Teand’s We Can Build a Snowman

And how could I miss

‘…the greenhouse door opens and an umbrella emerges, followed by Scully…’

or
‘After a moment Krycek shifted and met Mulder's eyes. One corner of his mouth quirked up. "Mulder, do me a favor. Stop looking at me like you're about to say your name is Inigo Montoya." ’
or
‘As Mulder unlocks the car door his cell phone rings. We all crowd into the car as fast as is compatible with our respective ideas of dignity, which means that Scully misses the initial "Mulder. -- Where?" There's a pause and she settles in.’
It’s all from Flambeau’s North-West Passage: Ghosts

Ah, and about ‘split personality’ Mulder this and this.

Kill me if I remember the plot of the first one *scratches the back of the head*, but the last one suits me for some reason.
