Quirks
What is your most noticable kin related personality quirk?



I think mine is: I'm Chicken Little, the sky is falling. I have an irrational fear of anything slightly out of place in the sky...but I'm always looking up. I've screamed, ducked, ran inside, and almost ran off the road while driving once all from crap like airplanes, helly-chopers, a weird cloud, you name. People ask me what I'm always looking for, but I'm not looking for anything! I'm just looking. And I'm always looking at the right [wrong] time. Long story, but its kin-related and something I want to be put in an electrified cage for. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Re: Quirks
I suppose one of mine (and I'll have to give this some more thought as I'm sure there are more!) is that I flick my phantom ears a lot. I perk them at sounds I hear, but it's almost like a random tick I have. If I'm sitting and not doing anything and I start paying attention to my phantom limbs, it's the ear flick that I notice first. And it's usually the left one and I have no idea why as I'm pretty much right-bodied. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Very interesting topic!

Re: Quirks
My corner. No matter the size of the room, I have to have my own little area or I don't feel safe. Including in areas where it's supposed to be all mine. Then again, this might be just an individual, non-kin quirk. Who knows?

Re: Quirks
Using the word, "tasty."
I've gotten the weirdest looks for it.

(On a random, pseudo-kin joke/related note, one time I was at my friend's church and some holy water splashed in my eyes. That stuff wasn't just regular water, I swear, it had something in it. And it burned. So here I am, eyes tearing up and I'm like, OW OW OW CRAP IT BURNS, and rubbing at my eyes. Needless to say, I got some weird freakin looks from that congregation...)


If somebody's really pissed off/really sad/really happy, any intense emotion, I'm next to them like velcro or something. Sometimes it is on purpose, but most of the time it's completely unintentional. My friends were calling me "Dr. Phil" for a while, because I'd just appear when someone's starting up the drama, and I'd be like, "well, crap, I don't like being in the middle of drama," so I'd try to talk to them about it and calm them down. This is usually also because I'm feeling their sadness/anger pouring off of them in torrents, and it isn't so tasty.

On the other hand, if I'm drawn towards someone and they're intensely happy, I start cracking jokes and keeping it going. All the energy just floating there... yea. Tasty as heck. <333


Sometimes(well, all of the time) I just take a completely amoral, non-"human(e)" look to things, and that bugs a lot of people. I stop trying to give a flying flip about whether something is "right" or "wrong," and just look at it from whether or not it sounds fun. And believe me, a lot of things are very fun once you drop morals off the boat.


Generally speaking, the only reason I don't feed off of sadness/anger is because it usually makes me feel sad/angry as well. But happiness? Hyperactivity? Them's my snack food of choice. Which is one reason I joke about everything.
Laughter is delicious.

That's a big percentage of my personality there, but that's as kin-related as it gets, quirk-wise.

I'm not sure it kin related, but speaking in tongues, especially when irritated.

There's a ditto on this end.

I do that sometimes as well....just not when irritated. I have also found that sometimes I can listen to people who speak language other than English and know what they are saying, even though I have never heard their language before.

Quirks? Hmmm. Have to get back on that one. At this point anything quirky you could do I just see as normal.

I have the opposite problem. Sometime people talk and I hear something the's just not in any way English, nor does it make any sense to me - though it does sound familiar. <!-- s:mrgreen: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":mrgreen:" title="Mr. Green" /><!-- s:mrgreen: -->
