Getting to Know Angel – The Final Round!

damon wowWell, I’d say Angel has had a very long and illuminating run here on the blog – maybe eventually he’ll get another turn (although I can’t imagine there are any more questions in the universe to ask him!!)

But for now, it’s time to carry on with the last round of questions and move on to his best buddy (yes, Skata is his best buddy, not that he’d ever admit to such a thing except in jest).

This has been fun, and I’ll miss the questions – but I’m definitely looking forward to Skata’s run! And now – on to the questions!

Or, as Angel would say…

damon get this party started

In school, did you get straight A’s or A’s and B’s and C’s or F’s? Well, when I went to school it was a one-room schoolhouse and I was a pretty good student. I got straight B’s, mostly.

damon eyebrows

Who is someone you wish you never met? I’d tell you, but then I’d have to – you know.

damon - we're not gonna fight remember
What is your biggest fear? Probably that a certain – undisclosed – secret of mine will be brought to light.

Have you learned to deal with Easton yet? ….Yeah. I coax, wheedle, and sometimes beg. Threatening doesn’t usually work. And I can’t compel her now that Skata has her on vervain, so…

damon clasped hands

What would you tell someone you didn’t like, if they proposed to you? Two answers.

damon i'd rather poke my eyes out

damon have you met you

I also have one for Mirriam to answer for Angel, what is a song that makes you think of Angel? There are quite a few of them, but one would be Kelly Clarkson’s “What Doesn’t Kill You (Makes You Stronger)”

Do you prefer normal people or crazy people (crazy as in ‘fun’)? ‘Normal’ and ‘people’ aren’t synonymous? I thought everyone was just…naturally that way.

damon - oh
Quiet evenings or loud parties? Loud parties. The more, the merrier.

Will you miss me – *cough* I mean US- after the interviews are over?

damon - ... well eyebrows
Pizza or burger? Pizza. Duh.

Cheeseburger or regular burger? I thought a cheeseburger WAS a regular burger.

Do you and Skata work well together as a team? Pffft, yeah. We’re awesome.

damon the amazing race

Will you help me hide a body?

damon - what's the catch

What’s the most you could bench press? Not that into bench-pressing, soo…a lot. I exercise by fighting with Skata…or showing Easton how to kill me. Or vampires. She has work to do.

damon wanna fight

damon warrior princess

Who do you dislike the most out of the entire populace of the earth? Once again…

damon side smile
Do you fake a smile a lot or are you genuinely happy when you smile (generally speaking)? I smile in sarcasm. Usually.

damon smirk

Favorite lollipop flavor? I don’t care, but if it has caramel in the center – awesome.

Would you ever make a ginger bread house? If Easton forced him to, he would. But it would end up looking something like this.







How would a sass-off between you and Skata sound? There would be a lot of name-calling and veiled allusions. I’m sure you’ll see a good example soon.

Are you good with kids? Kids love me, but that’s probably because I’m a bad influence.

damon - mouth quirk

Chocolate or vanilla? Depends on the food.

Favorite kind of pie? Marshmallow.

damon approving nod

Do you write in all caps or caps and lowercase? I’m not much of a computer guy. I tend to write in all lowercase when no one’s editing my stuff.

Do you send letters? To whom would  I send letters, exactly?

What plan didn’t go well? A lot of them, but not for lack of genius.

damon - epic failure


damon - is that a good sign

What do you want most out of anything? Oh…world peace.

damon is awesome
Do you have any regrets? Yeah.

damon - i do a lot of things i don't have to do

If there was one person you would willingly team up with (from any book/movie/whatever), who would it be and why? Oh…the Black Widow. For obvious reasons.

Are you a memory person, or do you just make history instead of looking back on it? Memories are annoying. The past doesn’t hold a lot of interest for me.

What’s the most annoying thing about other vampires? They just won’t die.

damon - killing

What advice would you give a new vampire?

damon - you're dead dude

If you could pick one time in any period of the world to live in for a year, what would it be? This one. I mean, come on – you’ve got fast food, R-rated movies passing for PG-13, and cell phones.

On yourself, long hair or short hair? What’s the longest your hair has been? My hair’s always been pretty short. Long hair and me aren’t friends.

Do you sing? When the mood takes me. And when I know it’ll annoy the housemate.

If there was one person you had to spend your life with, who would it be? He just said ‘my doppleganger’ so I’ll give the true answer – Easton.

Favorite movie? I have no idea. I’m nore of a TV-show person. 24, Fringe, White Collar.

Thoughts on marionettes? …I have none?

What’s your favorite hobby? Is getting into trouble a hobby? Because I do that a lot.

Do you like flavored hot chocolates? Probably not.

How was your Valentine’s Day? Active.

damon - dreaming about me

How do you typically spend Christmas? At home, like any other day; or at the Diamond Straight.

I know I’ve asked this before, but – can I see your vampire face again?

damon - vampire eyes smile

So this is your last interview — what’s the final thing you want to say to us until we meet again?

damon - i rocked your world
And Angel, for your information, you hold our hearts in your hands … for better or for worse. We love you.

damon you have a good day

damon you have a good day mmhm bye now


GTTY March Candidates

All right, ladies and gentlemen! There are several options for the March Getting to Know You interviewee! Pick your favorite and I’ll announce the winner on March 1st!

Note: Angel will have ONE more Q-and-A session, where he will answer as many or as few questions as pop up between now and the end of the month.

Jasper Morgan from Natural Disasters klaussmile

“Standing all alone, I see.”

            The soft, English-accented voice was close, and she turned immediately. A tall young man in a tasteful, tailored tuxedo had approached her without her noticing. His hands were clasped behind his back, and he was smiling at her as if both amused and intrigued.

            “My escort is talking with his sister.” She nodded across the room.

            “Ah, yes.” He nodded. “Still, it seems a shame, to leave someone so beautiful without a dancing partner.”

            Dahncing pahtnah.  Bree would have loved him based on accent alone. He held out a hand, and his smile deepened. He was not exactly handsome, but there was something magnetic about him that was impossible to ignore. He made her want to impress him, and she had no idea why. “Would you do me the honor?”

            She glanced back at Adam, still engaged in deep conversation with Celia. Sean had managed to get a glass of champagne and was looking like a dejected but eager puppy. “I can’t think of a reason to say no.” She smiled and placed her hand in his. “But if Adam cuts in, he gets first priority.”

            “Understood.” He put a hand on her waist, took her other hand in his, and spun her gracefully onto the dance floor. She had thought his eyes were black, but under the light she could see they were a dark, royal blue. “Might I ask you your name?”

            “December,” she told him, leaving her last name out. As charming as he seemed, something about him did not settle well. “And you?”

            “Jasper Morgan.” He nodded toward Adam. “And you seem to be dating my brother.”

Jackson Montgomery kol giffrom This Mortal Coil

There was nothing threatening about the appearance of the new vampire. Short brown hair, a boyish face, and the aura of a rich college kid did not add up to make the most dangerous of first impressions, but, as Skata frequently had to remind himself, you couldn’t judge a vampire by appearance. The harmless, youthful exterior was a disguise for a monstrosity with four hundred years of accumulated speed, strength and cunning.

            How he wished you could just take things at face value.

            He joined Angel and Easton. Jackson noticed him and held out a hand, leaning forward to call over the music, “Jackson Montgomery.”

            “Skata,” called Skata.

            The vampire smiled. It was a large, friendly smile with no animosity behind it, and Skata knew he couldn’t trust that, either. “Quite the party, eh?”

            There was no mistaking Jackson’s smooth, articulate English accent. “Uh,” said Skata, glancing around at the party scene carrying on around them. “Yeah.”

            He tried not to gape when Easton tucked her arm around Jackson’s and said, “Let’s get a drink!”

            “Why, Easton Everett,” Jackson teased. “I thought you despised me.”

            “Uck, that was then.” She nudged him. “This is tonight, and tonight we’re supposed to have fun!”        

            He nodded. “You’re absolutely right. Lead on, fair lady!”

            As soon as they left, Skata turned a simmering glare on Angel. “Don’t let them out of your sight.”

            “Wouldn’t dream of it,” said Angel.

Skata from This Mortal Coil  dean gun

In his dream, he was jogging up the stairs to the bedroom. “Em, darlin’, are you home?”

            The Honda was still parked in the driveway, but she might have gone for a walk down to the park, or maybe out to the pasture for a quick ride. That gave him enough time before they left to shower and change his clothes into something more appropriate for a fancy dinner.

            He turned the knob and walked into his room, in the middle of shrugging off his Carhartt jacket, when he paused. “Em?”

            His wife sat on the edge of the bed, angled away from him. Her dark hair tangled in undone waves, hanging over one shoulder and made it impossible to see her face. Her hands were in fists, clenching and unclenching in her lap.

            “Em, is everything okay?”

            She lifted her head and turned her face toward him, the movement slow and doll-like. Only then did he notice the open window. The chill that shivered through his bones had nothing to do with the winter air.

            “Baby, you’re home.” 

He sat up with a breath that left his lungs as reality came to life around him. It was just a dream. He pushed the blanket away and sat on the edge of the bed, gripping the blanket with both fists.

            Stop it. Just stop it.

            The windows.

            Without thinking, he stood up and slammed the window closed, then strode around the bed and slammed the other window. He pressed a fist to the glass and looked through his reflection to the other side. The street was lit with pale sunlight, and already the sky was beginning to darken.

            “You’ve gotta be kidding me.” He sighed and pushed away from the window. Pain attacked every injury with the movement, but he only opened the door and shuffled out into the hallway. Maybe the half-breed had left his bag – sans the arsenal – somewhere. Everything he owned was in that bag.

3. When you’re bored, what’s the thing you to do get out of it?

I’ll probably go find someone to flirt with. Or I’ll think of a new way to torment Skata, like the time I played a little revenge by locking the cat in his room all day until he came back. There was hair everywhere; it was great.
