Getting to Know You, Round Three: Azrael

Once again, it’s time for another questionnaire with Azrael! This will probably be the last round for him, so if you have any more questions we’ll answer them in the comments!


Would you like a twin? Would said twin be willing to do all the chores?

2) Do you wear jewelry? On occasion, sure. Rooney bought me a dog tag as an early Christmas present that says ‘if found, please return to address.’  If I don’t wear it she gets mad.

That’s not entirely true. I only get mad if he does dangerous stuff without it.

3) Could you turn Patrick into something other than a marionette without him dying (poor dear)? I could always try, but he’d probably die between transitions so I haven’t tried it. I told him to wait for the Blue Fairy.

4) If you had an email address, what would it be? Rooney told me not to tell my email address. *whispers* It’s It’s actual the email for everybody I know – Ginger, Hal, Rusty, Castor, Rooney, whoever.  But I made it so it’s mine.

5) WHEN ARE YOU PROPOSING TO ROONEY-ROO???? Can I be invited to the wedding???? O___________O Erm….

6) You don’t scowl as much now as you did when you met Hal and Ginger. Why? Untrue! I scowl just as much! Maybe even more!

7) Azzy (hope you don’t mind us calling you that), what’s your favorite holiday? I’ve been called worse. And…oh…the Mid-Autumn Festival. Christmas next because presents.

8) How do you get into the Christmas spirit, if at all? Well, thanks to Rooney the house is suffocating under a mass of pine boughs, tinsel and lights. She’s forcing me into it.

9) Are you a holiday person? Or do you prefer to roll with the everyday life? I love a good excuse for a party, but only small ones. Say five or six people. And it can’t last too long. Half an hour is good.

Longer if you can dazzle everyone with your wysary.


10) How long do wyslings live on average? Oh, it differs from person to person. Most wyslings are faeries like myself, so we can live for quite a long time. Human wyslings do tend to live longer because they’re around so much wysary; 200 for a human, on average. I think.

Whoo; I’m gonna live to two hundred!

Don’t count on it.

11) Can I have a hug? If you must.

Be nice!

….Sure, I love hugs.

12) What’s your favorite Christmas memory? The time I accidentally turned Bernie into a Christmas ornament.

13) What’s your favorite thing to do during Christmas? Go sledding! It’s easy enough to raise a hill and make some snow. I’m taking Rooney and Patrick out sledding later. I think she’s working on convincing Rusty.

He says he’d rather stay inside and make hot chocolate for us when we come in or something.

Tell him he’s a party pooper.

I already did.

14) What do you want for Christmas this year? Rooney’s looking at me like I’m supposed to say world peace, but then you have all these problems – which world? How much peace? Does peace = happiness? So I’ll just say a new hoodie.

15) Are you giving anyone (Rooney) anything for Christmas this year? Maybe.

He is. I saw the package. But he won’t tell me what it is.

That would spoil the surprise, and you know it!

He even wysered it so I can’t touch it. I can’t even shake it to see if it was expensive.

It wasn’t.



Getting to Know You, Round Two: Azrael

So today not only do we have Azrael’s last bout of questions, we have some clever fan art from The Princess of Dol Amroth! The first picture displays the main items in Paper Crowns – a verily muffin, Ginny’s award, paper chains, her paper airplane, icicles, and Salazar down there at the bottom. The second picture is, of course, Ginny in the Summer Kingdom after having reclaimed her crown (notice Cat!Hal’s tail?) Aren’t they awesome?











What’s the weirdest form you’ve ever been in?

Oh, tough. I have to say the painting was an interesting form, except I was stuck like that for two days until the wyse wore off.

You never told me about that!

Rooney, stay out of my interview.

Do you mind your name being shortened?

I hear I’m being called Azzy. I…I can think of worse nicknames, I suppose.

Would you be caught wearing pink?

Dead or alive?

Obviously you’d be caught as a ginger, so-


How many clocks are in your house?

One. On the mantle. Well, two, if you count the – no, three. I actually don’t know. Rooney, how many clocks are in the house?

Including watches? Six. I have a wristwatch, there are three clocks, you have a wristwatch, and Rusty has one of those watches on a chain.

How many people have you turned into dogs?

Only two. Dogs aren’t the only forms I use, you know. And both the baker and the mailman deserved it.

What’s your favorite number?

Thirty-seven is an excellent wysing number.

If you were a musical instrument, what instrument would you all be?

Well, ROONEY would be a piccolo. Ear-piercing, annoying, makes you want to poke your eardrums with a stick-

Azrael would totally be a harmonica.

A har – what? Why?

Rusty’s a cello. Everybody knows that. Patrick is probably a xylophone.

Why couldn’t I be a xylophone?

You just aren’t.

Nobody asked you.


Getting To Know You, Round One: Azrael

A lot of questions for Azrael came in yesterday. I hadn’t expected to have enough to do a full post for a few days, at least, but you didn’t seem to have any trouble at all thinking some up! Enjoy the interview!


How old were you when you became a wysling/started learning wysary, and who taught you?

When I was nine my parents bought me all twelve volumes of the Lives of Edridanus, and curiosity did the rest. I taught myself (not very well) and was helped out by Sceptrum, a nether fae I met at the goblin market.

Are you seriously a ‘fanboy’ of Eridanus?

I think ‘fanboy’ might be overdoing it, but –

Sorry, Rooney here. Is he a fanboy of Eridanus. He owns two twelve-volume autobiography sets, quotes him every time he turns around, and would probably have posters on his walls, if wyslings did that sort of thing.

MANNERS, Rooney! It’s rude to interrupt!

I think you must be rubbing off on me.

What’s your favorite thing to eat? And what’s your favorite color?

My favorite thing to eat is food. All kinds. Rooney’s waffles are pretty good. And my favorite color is BLACK.

If you could go anywhere, and do anything, where would it be and why?

I CAN go anywhere and do anything. Almost. I’d probably go forward in time and watch The Desolation of Smaug and then right after I’d watch the one after that. I hate waiting.

What is your preference: redheads, brunettes, or blonds?

I quite like them all. Except gingers. Gingers are trouble.

Rooney again. Azrael, can I point out that you’re currently a ginger?

For heaven’s sake, be quiet and stop interrupting.

You seem to not be very physically active (though you don’t seem to gain weight at all…). Do you like to exercise in your free time? What is your favorite sport?

I’m naturally thin. I can’t stand not doing anything, but I hate to exercise just for the sake of exercising.

It’s me. He doesn’t exercise. He twitches. He’s the twitchiest person I’ve ever met.

How do you take compliments? Because have a ton… *squees, fangirls, hugs Azrael*

Hey, hey! I take compliments very well, so please don’t feel you have to be shy on my account!

Is your real eye color black?

Yes. Black is my favorite color. My hair should be black, too, but I’m not bitter. Of course not.

Tea or coffee?

Coffee. I enjoy coffee. Coffee is delicious. Have you ever had an eggnog latte? You should. Starbucks has them this time of year. Get a trente. Or at least a venti.

What’s your favorite pair of shoes?

Converse high-tops! Or combat boots. All the better to kick Rooney with.

To you, what is the meaning of life?

42. What’s it to you?

Who was your best childhood friend?

Hogarth, the family dog. He was one of those big, black, floppy ones.

A newfoundland.



Do you cry during movies?


He’s lying.

What, or who, makes you really, really angry/irritates you? Why?

Am I expected to answer all these with full honesty!? Because if I do, every enemy I have will know exactly how to strike at me.

I’m pretty sure you don’t have any enemies here.

I can’t stand being interrupted or bossed around. And I suppose if anyone tried to hurt certain people, I might get a bit ruffled.

Do you take dares?

Only worthy ones.

Out of all Mirriam’s books (your series aside) what would your favorite be?

This Mortal Coil. I’m a Rukiel fan. I’m only a few chapters in, though, so no spoilers!

What’s your favorite time of year?

Autumn. I’m originally from the autumn kingdom, anyway.

If you didn’t have ‘heart problems,’ how would you view Patrick? Like a kid brother, a friend, or a nuisance?

I view most people as nuisances. They’re always getting in the way. But Patrick might be a bit less nuisance-y than some.

Do you like Rooney as much as you pretend not to?

What kind of question is that!? Cat’s teeth!
