Continuing with the second set of questions in the Beautiful People series by Cait @ Paper Fury and Sky @ Further Up and Further In, still with the main characters of Wildflowers Saga #2 - Dandy and Toru!
1) What’s their favourite food? (Bonus: favourite flavour of chocolate!)
Dandy - Rice and eggs. Raw eggs, that is. She eats it as her first meal of the day (sometimes in the morning, sometimes in the afternoon) and has a big appetite, so likes something she can load up on quickly. She prefers dark chocolate, liking the bitter bite.
Toru - Does tea count as a food? He likes his tea, sometimes forgoing breakfast entirely and just having a cup. He also prefers dark chocolate, because he doesn't really like sweet things in general.
2) What do they absolutely hate?
Dandy - Jeongwon. Some specific people, but more the country as a whole. After being a slave there, and while slavery exists in other places, she particularly hates the way Jeongwonee slaves are treated and how prevalent it is in the country.
Toru - Improvising. He was raised learning how to be an ordered person, and was able to make and keep to plans his entire life... until he started working with Dandy. While advanced planning and research are Toru's forte, he leaves most of the planning to Dandy since she knows how to gather information.
3) What do they enjoy learning about?
Dandy - Art. She actually really enjoys the subject, but doesn't go out of her way to lean more. Fortunately, she has some well versed friends willing to teach her.
Toru - Anything about the law - philosophy, loopholes, proceedings, etc. While he's been away from his work for a while, he stills likes to learn since it was something he used to do with his father.
4) Who is the most influential person in their life?
I would elaborate, but that would be spoilers - suffice to say, they are the most influential person in each others' lives (Dandy - Toru/Toru - Dandy).
5) What is their childhood fear?
Dandy - Nothing. Dandy was a fearless child that was always trying to outdo her brothers and other children.
Toru - Leviathans. His mother used to tell him scary stories about children getting dragged to the bottom of the ocean by them.
6) What is something they have always secretly dreamed of doing, but thought impossible?
Dandy - Visiting her mother's family. They lived in another country and she never met them.
Toru - He never considered any of his goals impossible, so I'll say his biggest dream was to take over as head of the Katowaro Clan and make his father proud.
7) What is something he is impractically afraid of?
Dandy - Emotional intimacy. She regularly pushes her friends away, though most of them understand why and are patient.
Toru - Disappointing his family. He's very proud of his family and what they stand for, especially his father's legacy, and worries that he can't live up to his name.
8) Are they a night owl or morning person?
Dandy - Night Owl. She's a party person, and likes staying up having a good time.
Toru - Morning Person. More by habit than inclination, he gets up very early to practice swordsmanship and meditate.
9) Do they say everything that pops into their head, or leave a lot unsaid?
Dandy - Zero filter.
Toru - Like pulling teeth.
10) What are their nervous habits?
Dandy - Biting the inside of her cheek, rubbing the back of her neck.
Toru - Being still and silent (so he doesn't accidentally bleat, which nobles consider uncouth).
Feel free to drop any questions you want added or any characters you want to hear answers from that are in the first book!
