    Would you rather know thirty languages fluently or be a math adn science genius?

    Teagen: ‘Thirty languages definitely. That would,’ His chest expands in wander, ‘be amazing?’

    Lawrence: ‘The genius.’

    Teagen: *snickers* ‘You would.’

    Waneebi: ‘I didn’t even know there were that many languages!’ *mind spinning, eyes dazzled, and jaw slightly open* Then he comes to himself a few seconds later, ‘Then again, I would likely never be able to use the knowledge of so many tongues. I would gain math and science, for then I might be able to overthrow Jones.’ And take over the island for himself, and perhaps squash Zicari to the dirt. To bad the foreigner’s son had already died…

    Elsie: ‘Uh,’ *itches her left ankle with her right toes* ‘The languages I guess. Do I get to pick them? It would help to know these people’s language without having to work for it.’

    Zicari: *smiles knowingly at the side of Elsie’s face* ‘If I were to leave the island I would pick languages. But I am staying,’ *looks into Elsie’s eyes, but refrains from destroying what little hope she had of escape…* ‘I would do as Waneebi said. It might help us take down this dictator.’

    Lucky: *snorts* ‘All you boys’ blind bravado..’

    Zicari: *looks at Lucky a second, brows lifted (Zicari’s humor was slowly returning as Kia’s death slowly became farther and further past) Are you saying I wouldn’t fight for my people?

    Omaru: *face tightens* ‘You know not what you speak of,’  the youth, yet husband and father struck his chest, ‘We have fought and died for such. It is not vain, or blind.’

    Zicari: *met his comrade’s eyes and gave a message* If you beat a fool, he will only gain sores, not a soul. That must be experienced.

    Omaru: *shoulders slouched,* ‘I would choose as Zicari.’ *his eyes lit like fire. Some had tried to take Zicari’s life…it almost always started with baseless insults. Lucky couldn’t be trusted* ‘What would you choose master Looky?’

    Lucky: *bushy gray brows lift* ‘The languages.’ *He then began picking his white, though crooked teeth, with a grubby nail.*

    Would you rather be told an uncomfortable truth or a comforting lie?

    Dayton: “Comfort zones are danger zones. Tell me the truth, though I might still hate you for it.”

    Alan: “Uhh . . . I don’t know . . . if it’s something silly or something that you don’t like about me, then you can lie to me, sure. But if it’s something important, then don’t lie to me.

    Rob: “The truth.”

    Jim: *nods* “Always.”

    Megyn: *nods* “Yes, even if it is very uncomfortable, please tell me the truth.”

    Would you rather be able to see 10 minutes into your own future or 10 minutes into the future of anyone but yourself?

    Dayton: *thinks a moment* “I would rather see into my own future. It would be helpful to know.”

    Alan: “Uhh . . . it depends. I mean, being able to know my own future would be good so I can be prepared for whatever I’m going to do. But being able to know someone else’s future would be good to so I can help them out if they were getting into trouble. *thinks* “I can pretty much know what I am going to do anyway. I’ll see someone else’s future.”

    Rob: “What happens to me is of little consequence. I’d rather know someone else’s future.”

    Jim: *thinking* “Guess I’d rather know my know future.”

    Megyn: “I think I’d rather know someone else’s future.”

    Would your character rather be colorblind, or born without a sense of taste and/or smell?

    Dayton: *quickly* “Colorblind. I need my sense of smell.”

    Alan: *thoughtfully* “Might be nice not having to smell smoke anymore . . . I think I’ll go with that. ”

    Rob: *expressionlessly* “I can lose my sense of taste.”

    Jim: “Don’t really care . . . but I guess I’ll be colorblind.”

    Megyn: “Eh, this isn’t easy . . . I guess I could go colorblind. I could still remember the colors.”

    Would you rather go back to age 5 with everything you know now or know now everything your future self will learn?

    Dayton: *blinks, then snorts* “I’d rather go back to age five! My life will turn out far better if I knew then what I know now!”

    Alan: “Uhh . . . going back to five knowing everything I know now would spoil the whole idea of being five again! I’ll know everything I’ll ever know instead.”

    Rob: *expressionlessly again* “I’ll have to agree with Miss Dayton.”

    Dayton: *gives him ‘the daggers’ look*

    Jim: *swallows* “I – I rather go back too.”

    Megyn: *sighs* “I don’t know if I could as a five-year-old handle knowing everything I do now. I’ll know everything I’ll ever learn.”

    Would you rather know thirty languages fluently or be a math and science genius?

    Dayton: “Math and science, though I am experienced enough in them to do what I do well.”

    Alan: *cheerfully* “You know what they say, “You never stop learning” !”

    Dayton: *gives HIM ‘the daggers’ look too*

    Alan: “Uhh . . . I think I’ll be a math and science whiz. I’ll be able to keep up with the big-heads–I mean, big wigs in the business, like you!” *gives Dayton a taunting grin*

    Dayton: *nostrils flare*

    Rob: *raises eyebrow at Alan* “Though being a math/science genius would be nice, I think for my client’s sake being able to speak the thirty languages would be better.”

    Jim: “Math and science.”

    Megyn: *decidedly* “The languages, for sure. There are some that I’ve always wanted to master.”

    Would you rather be infamous in history books or be forgotten after your death?

    Dayton: *snorts* “Would rather leave a mark on the world, but if it’s only in something negative, I’d rather be forgotten.”

    Alan: *mumbles to himself* “You’ve already left a negative mark on my world.” *clears throat loudly* “Uhh . . . guess I’d rather be forgotten. I don’t want to be known as a bad person.”

    Rob: “Likewise.”

    Jim: *nods*

    Megyn: *nods* “Me too.”

    Would you rather be able to erase your memories or be able to erase other people’s memories?

    Greg: “What?” Shocked that people ask such questions, “Other people’s,.. I suppose. For I’ve wronged them, but? How would I know the effect it would have on their lives? Moreover, I deserve to be hated by some people… To be reminded of my sins, do I not?”

    Nicole: “No,” Takes a deep breath, and looks away, though sitting pushed up against her husband. “My memories.” Glances back up to Greg (her husband), “Of you know what.”

    Greg: looks down and nodds. “If only,” *Memories of his mistakes starting to scratch his chest, though Nicole never holds it against him…*

    Darick: “Erase other’s memories.” His daughter’s. (Nicole)

    Glorietta: “Shoot, I don’t know? I suppose I’d erase other’s so I could do it for Nicole.” (Nicole her daughter)

    Ali: “Other’s memories.” His son’s. (Greg)

    Would you rather lose the ability to lie or believe everything you’re told?

    Stranger: I think that level of naivete would get me real dead real fast, so I guess I’ll choose being super honest.

    Kaz: Um…*averts his eyes* the other one.

    Travis: Why, what are you hiding, Houdini?

    Kaz: *glares at him* Vigilantes in glass houses shouldn’t point their rifles into other people’s business.

    Lauren: Honesty. I couldn’t stand believing everybody’s lies all the time.

    Jordan: I would definitely rather be honest all the time.

    Dante: I guess nothing would really change for you, huh?

    Jordan: Not much. What would you choose, Dante?

    Dante: Honesty. Obviously. *He rolls his eyes* (But actually he lies all the time and would pick the other one).

    New Question: Would you rather your significant other married somebody else and was happy or stayed with you and was less happy?

    Greg: “Their happiness.” Looks Nicole in the eyes, and brings her right hand to his face, pressing the knuckles to his lips.

    Nicole: *Averts her gaze a second, then retracts her hand and looks Greg straight in the eyes as well, “I would want you to be happy. Unless,.. the happiness would kill you.”

    Greg: *Chin lifts, but his pupils stay on her. He nods, saying no more words, except through his eyes.*

    Darick: “What Nicole said.”

    Glorietta: “Shoot, I don’t know? I suppose I’d be selfish, wouldn’t I?” *Shakes her head and determines to ponder her state in life.*

    Ali: “Nicole indeed had a good point.”

    Greg: *Staring with admiration on his wife’s lowered head, and blushing cheeks.* How he loved her!

    @dakota

    Would you rather be able to erase your memories or be able to erase other people’s memories?

    Dayton: *very stiffly* “Mine. There’s a lot I’d rather be rid of.”

    Alan: “Uhh . . . well, since I don’t really have any memories I really want to be rid of and other people do, I’ll erase their bad memories for them!” *grins at Dayton*

    Dayton: *snorts*

    Rob: *expressionlessly* “Others.”

    Jim: *looks at the floor and swallows* “Guess I’d erase some of mine.”

    Megyn: *ponders a moment, sober expression on her face* “I think I’d rather erase other people’s memories. Not matter how difficult some of mine are to think about, there are gems to be gleaned from their ashes. And I know others who have worse memories than I do.”

    Would you rather lose the ability to lie or believe everything you’re told?

    Dayton: *snorts* “Obviously, I’d rather lose the ability to lie! To be so utterly gullible is-disgusting!”

    Alan: “Uhh . . . believing everything I’m told could lead to a lot of laughs,  . . .but also a lot of mistakes and looking like an idiot . . . I think I’d rather lose the ability to lie.”

    Rob: “Likewise.”

    Jim: *nods*

    Megyn: *nods* “Me too.”

    Would you rather your significant other married somebody else and was happy or stayed with you and was less happy?

    Dayton: *bristles* “WHY are you ASKING ME this type of question AGAIN!? I -”

    ME: *in a VERY FLAT voice* “Just. Answer. The question.”

    Dayton: *glares at me like I’m a poison for a few seconds, nostrils flared* “Fine. I’d rather have him marry anybody but me for whatever reason gets him out of my life! THERE HAPPY NOW!!??”

    ME: No. But it will do.

    Alan: *looks shaken* “Uhh . . . *blinks* “If-If it made her happy, then I guess I would -survive.” *tries not to look like he’s about to cry*

    Rob: *matter of fact-ly*”Since I don’t have a significant other, I’d rather they’d marry, someone else and be happy.”

    Jim: “Yeah, same here.”

    Megyn: *without hesitation, though very seriously and a little sadly* “Their happiness must be more important than my own. I’d rather have them marry someone else.”

    New Question: Would you rather be ignored or be criticized?

    Would you rather be ignored or be criticized?

    Dante: I don’t see how anyone would do either to me, but I guess I’d take the criticism. At least that I could argue with.

    Would you rather be able to see 10 minutes into your own future or 10 minutes into the future of anyone but yourself?

    Judah: Ten minutes into somebody else’s future. Definitely.

    Dante: Uh, ten minutes into my own.

    New Question: Would you rather be a parent or not?

    #119002

    @kimlikesart

    Would you rather be a parent or not?

    Cheryl: “I, I want children…but, I’m not sure I’d be a good parent… Or if he will care for our child.”

    He: “I want many sons. From any woman who will give.”

    Cheryl: *trembling*

    Mama: “I am a mama and grandmama now. I hope for many more babies. Such sweet little jewels…”

    Papa: “I had sons, and now a daughter. It is good.”

    Brother: “I want many sons b my wife.”

    @sam-m

    Would you rather have the ability to move things with your mind, or the ability to read minds?

    Jordan: The ability to move things with my mind. Definitely. Telepathy would be torture.

    (She can already tell whenever people lie, which she considers to be as misfortune).

    Judah: Uh…I think I’d have to go with telepathy. Jordan gives him a look and he shrugs. It would just make finding him a lot easier.

    (He’s hunting down the crime boss that murdered his parents).

    Lauren: Telekinesis. Obviously. It would just be super useful for self-defense, helping others, and just, you know, doing life.

    Kaz: Rubbing the back of his neck… I wish I could have both. I’d choose telekinesis.

    Travis: As pragmatic as rearranging furniture with my brain would be, I would choose telepathy. Obviously.

    Frankie: I would go with telekinesis. Looking into other people’s heads isn’t as fantastic as it sounds. (She’s a profiler). Besides…you could do so much with telekinesis.

    Dante: You know what? Crossing his arms… I choose both.

    Frankie and Kaz: You can’t do that!

    Dante: I just did.

    Judah: I’m pretty sure that’s not how this works.

    Dante: You guys are just jealous.

    Lauren: Dante…

    Dante: Sighs, dramatically. Okaaaay. If you want to do it the boring way…telekinesis sounds fun.

    Would you rather live on the moon or underwater (think Atlantis)?

    @dakota

    Whoa . . .  I got way behind on this thread. Oops!

    Would you rather be ignored or be criticized?

    Dayton: *snorts* “Either way, I won’t be affected. I care very little about what people think about me. But I suppose I’d rather be criticized than ignored.”

    Alan: “Uhh . . . I think I’d rather be ignored. Being criticized all the time would be . .  tedious at best.”

    Rob: “Ignored. Rather stay in the background”

    Jim: *thinks a moment* “I can handle either one. Sometimes both are good for your pride. But I reckon I’d rather be criticized.

    Megyn: *nods in agreement.* “It would depend on the context of the situation. Sometimes I’ve found that it’s better to be ignored or not noticed by certain types of people.”

    Would you rather live on the moon or underwater (think Atlantis)

    Dayton: *rolls her eyes* “I suppose underwater.”

    Alan: “On the moon!”

    Rob: “Underwater.”

    Jim: “Yeah.”

    Megyn: *ponders a moment* “Yes, that could be exciting . . .”

    Would you rather have the ability to move things with your mind, or the ability to read minds?

    Dayton: *cocks her head* “That is actually a difficult decision. . . *contemplates a moment* “I’d rather be able to move things with my mind. More could be done a whole lot faster.”

    Alan: *grinning hugely* “Oh, yeah, that would be cool! I could pick you up and move you to Africa or someplace else while I sit on the couch, eat popcorn and watch a movie!”

    Dayton: *gnashes her teeth at him*

    Rob: “Hm. I think I’d rather be able to read people’s minds.”

    Jim: *looks rather puzzled* “Dunno . . . guess I’d rather be able to read people’s minds.”

    Megyn: *ponders a moment* “I think that I’d rather be able to read minds.”

    Would you rather be a parent or not?

    Dayton: *stiffens* “I suppose I’d rather be a parent.”

    Alan: “Uhh . . . I rather not. Don’t think I’d be a very good one.”

    Rob: *slight eyebrow lift* “Never really thought about this.” *pause to do so* “I think I’d rather not.”

    Jim: *thinks deeply a moment, staring at the wall* “Well, . . . at this point, I rather not. Don’t need anymore lives in danger . . . cuz’ of me.”

    Megyn: *thinks a moment* “I’m content as I am. But, if I were to become a parent,that would be fine with me.”

    Since this seems to have died, I’ll post two new questions:

    New Question 1: Would you rather be stuck on an island alone or with someone who talks nonstop?

    New Question 2: Would you rather fake your death or go to jail for 10 years?

    And just in case any of you are interested – @sam-m @kimlikesart @naiya-dyani @mayacat @tal @arindown @beth20 @the-inkspiller @emberynus-the-dragonslayer @kayla-skywriter @urwen-starial @esmeralda-gramilton

    Hi, thanks for the invitation.

    I remember stalking this thread last September, figuring it was a bit late to join, and then later forgetting about it XD.

    I don’t have anything to add right now and I may not post often, but I’ll participate if I find a chance.

    New Question 1: Would you rather be stuck on an island alone or with someone who talks nonstop?

    Nithel: “Someone who speaks.”

    Avigail: … Her heart aches a bit, “How long are we to be on the island?”

    Ratul: “As long as it takes.”

    Avigail: “As long as it takes for what?”

    Ratul: “For you to go crazy.” Avigail looks down, Nithel taking a step nearer her. “I’d be alone.”

    Avigail: “I, I’d be…” she can’t choose. Wait, how big is the island? I could go off alone. She thinks better than to ask aloud this time, “I would be with someone.”

    Mihael: “I would…” She bites her lips, looking over to her husband. “I’d be alone.” Gabrel is a silent man…

    Gabrel: He nods, “I as well.” He glances to her, before getting back to whittling.

    Elia: “Corban would be the talker…he can’t be quiet.” The sister looked over to her three-year-old brother. But, “I would be with him.”

    Corban: He grins, and claps, “Be wid sissy!”

    Nasiin: “I would be alone.” For one is truly never alone. Not when one can see the heavens. He glances to Nithel. The Star Breather had given him a larger heart. A heart for people. Then he glanced to his daughter, Well, He gave me one too

    Carace: “I would…” be alone. No… with someone…. noooooo…. “I would be with someone.” Though it would drive me mad.

     

    New Question 2: Would you rather fake your death or go to jail for 10 years?

    Carace: “Fake my death. Of a certain.”

    Nithel: His brows lift, Avigail would know I was alive. “I would fake it, but,” His brows lower, eyes saddening, “What did I do? Perhaps I deserve prison.”

    Ratul: Rolls his eyes and looks away.

    Nasiin: Looks at Nithel with longing. If only I was more like him… “I would fake my death.”

    Ratul: He makes his eyes bug, snapping his fingers and pointing to his father, like it’s the most genius of ideas.

    Mihael: “I would pretend to die.”

    Gabrel: He looks to his little girl, then his wife’s frail form. I would let them know. “I as well.” But the crop? That is why I am no revolutionary. He looks to Nithel.

    Elia and Corban: Messing around, not paying attention.

    Gabrel: Eyes steely, “I would fake their deaths for them.”

    Mihael: And go to jail because of it

    Avigail: “I would…” fake my death. And fail miserably. Getting life in prison likely… “Um,”

    Ratul: Grins at his sister, “I’d bring you flowers.”

    Avigail: Glowers at him, “I would…”

    Ratul: Leans forward, “Yes?”

    Nasiin: “Leave your sister alone.”

    Avigail: “I…would go to prison.”

    Nithel: Eyes sad, Someone would go with you. Someone else would have done something. You would have not done it on your own.

    @Dakota Thanks for the tag!

    Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? 

    Erik: “Vision, obviously. Even if you’re in the dark you can tell what’s going on, or who’s sneaking up behind you.”

    Ky: “I’d lose my vision.”

    Laurel: “Vision as in seeing? Or as in your hopes?”

    New Question 2 – Would you rather always say everything on your mind or never speak again?

    Ky: “Never speak again. Actions can speak as loud as words, but you guys don’t want to know everything that goes on in my head.”

    Erik: “Is that even a question? I already say everything that pops into my head, so nothing would change.” *looks at Ky* “It probably help sometimes if you said more of what’s in your big head.”

    Laurel: *elbows Erik* “I wouldn’t want to speak. It’s easier to learn sign-language than to always think nice things.” *laughs*

     

    New Question: Would you rather be helpless in a terrible situation, where you might get killed, or kill a helpless animal?

    Not all who wander are lost.
