the parchment runneth over
Hard to believe we're once more on the cusp of the Week of the Killer Quizzes. Though to be honest, I'm rather glad to see it arrive: I've been collecting quizzes a little rapaciously this year, and Sev is starting to lose patience with the stacks of parchment spilling into his potions work. And since that sort of thing usually ends in explosions and the sad demise of potion and parchment, both, neither Sev nor I have been altogether pleased the past few weeks. So without further ado, let the Week of the Killer Quizzes begin!


You’re looking for something off the beaten trail. WAY off. The further you can be from the hustle and bustle of modern society the better. I mean, it’s the whole reason you took this quiz in the first place, right?
What Fictional City Should You Actually Live In?

...Well, not the *whole* reason, but I have to admit to hoping I'd end up with Rivendell. I love everything about it---the cliffs and the waterfalls and the rivers; its role as a waystation for weary travelers; that there is quiet and contemplation as well as song and revelry. Just perfect.

Which 90s TV Boyfriend Is Right for You?

That actually sounds like my ideal match in a lot of ways...though the entire reason I stopped watching Dawson's Creek was because Pacey was annoying the hell out of me. (That affair with the teacher? Gross, man.) Not sure whether this says more about how I've changed or how the show changed.

Japanese Eggplant Pizza

You are an easygoing and compassionate person. In general, you have no problem putting others first. You are adventurous, but your sense of adventure is never impulsive. You are good at delaying gratification.

You are an idealist and a visionary. You can't help but have an idea of what you'd like the world to be like. You are future-oriented and progressive. Since we can't change the past, you prefer to look ahead.

You are very open with people about your ideas, past, and opinions. You are proud of who you are - flaws and all. Of all the types, you are the most one of a kind. People wish they had the guts to be as original and fearless as you are.
What California Pizza Are You?

I really like that. And I think it's fairly accurate, especially the bits about being adventurous but not impulsive and proud (or, at least, accepting) of myself, flaws and all. Well done, pizza quiz. Well done. Though I have no idea what a Japanese eggplant pizza would taste like....

I think I've eaten that pizza at California Pizza Kitchen! I think you'd enjoy it. :) I'm still a little amazed that the pizza quiz gave pretty accurate and descriptive answers. We probably need a larger sample size...

Anyhoo, you've already seen that I got the same for the first two! I think Rivendell is much more alluring with you there! Though your Stars Hollow suggestion is probably more accurate. I think it was the implication of not *ever* wanting to be in a big city. I mean, I don't want to live in Gondor, but I wouldn't mind visiting once in awhile.

A larger sample size? OF PIZZA? :D And if you don't want to live in a big city, you might be okay in Rivendell. The result makes it sound very pastoral, but from the books, I always got the impression that it kind of *is* the Elven version of a bustling city.

Whereas Lothlorien and Mirkwood are secretive and private, Rivendell is open to travelers and has a nice rotation of Elven activities. Y'know, poetry readings, singing, parties, concerts. It's just up to you how much you participate or interact---like an introvert's version of a bustling city.

Either way, though, you're totally welcome to come visit me in my Rivendell bungalow. :D
