Getting to Know Skata, Round Five

1. Would you kill kittens? Would I kill kittens?

dean confused no

2. Are you a texter, or do you prefer to talk with people face to face? If I can call someone, I will, but I’m not much of a texter.

3. What’s your personality type? INTJ.

4. If Angel wasn’t a vampire, would you two be friends?

dean i don't know maybe irritated

5. On what occasion would you wear a tux? I wear tuxes. Sometimes. Funerals or business meetings or whatever.

6. Were you and your mother abused by your father as a child? I wouldn’t say ‘abused.’ Pushed around, yeah. It was a tough life, and we were never good enough for him.

dean sad thoughtful

7. Do you take more after your mother or your father? Neither, not that I can see. I look more like my dad, but everyone said I had my mom’s eyes.

8. What was your awkward phase in life like? I never had an awkward phase. Too busy.

9. Do you have any health issues? Besides an apparent death wish? Nah.

10. If you had only a month to live, what would you do? I’d track down Samuel and kill him, same as I’m doing now. I wouldn’t change a thing.

dean chew then oh smile

12. Do you take dares? Only from people I trust, which means only my own.

13. Do you still wear your wedding ring? On a chain around my neck.

14. So do you still believe in God and are just bitter toward Him, or…? I’m completely done. God’s never done anything for me, and I sure as death ain’t gonna start doing favors for Him.

15. Do you have any stuffed animals, or is that strictly an Easton thing?

dean ew

16. Did you ever go to college? No, and I dropped out of eighth grade.

17. Are you artistically inclined in any way? I can carve meat.

18. Do you like to talk about your problems, or let them fester? The day you see me spilling my guts on a couch is the day I’m dead.

19. What’s the biggest mistake you’ve ever made? I…I’m not sure if…I don’t know.

dean sad

20. What horrific experience do you have with house cats? Besides Angel’s housecat from hell? I’m allergic to ’em and they all seem to like me, that’s what. It would traumatize you, too.

21. If you had to spend an entire 24 hours (no murder involved) with Angel or Morticia, who would you choose? Angel doesn’t make me sneeze.

22. Do you like holding babies? Do I like – what kind of question is that?


23. Would you ever remarry? I’m no fortune-teller, but I can’t see it happening.

24. Do you like living, or would you prefer to be dead, with everything that’s happened to you? When death comes, I’m gonna stare it in the face and take it, but I’m not gonna go until I say it’s time.

25. What’s your favorite movie? Braveheart.


Getting to Know Skata, Round Four

I’m fully aware that this post is long overdue, but don’t worry – I’m giving Skata through part of April to finish up all the questions. Also, if you have more questions, please put them in the comment section of this post – it makes them easier to keep up with that way.

1. How old was Em when you married her (and is ‘Em’ a nickname)? Em had just turned twenty-one when I married her. Em is short for Emmaline. She always thought it was too fancy. I’d known her for three months before I proposed – patience isn’t really my strong point.

2. Coke or Pepsi? I was always more of a Dr Pepper kinda guy.

3. What guns do you own? I’ve got a shortened Remington 870 and a Smith and Wesson 500 revolver. I got other things, too; my favorite non-gun weapon’s probably my Barnett Ghost 400 crossbow.

dean oops

This is the trunk of my car. I left it in a parking lot before I entered the swamp.


4. Would you ever adopt a kid? I might hang onto it until I found someone who would, but I can’t drag a kid around my kinda life.

5. I bet you look stunning in leather jackets – do you ever wear them? All the time.

dean leather

6. Do you work out? My lifestyle’s a workout in itself, but if the area’s conducive I’ll probably start doing pullups or something.

7. Do you exercise your mind as well as your biceps? I do crossword puzzles.

8. What would be your email if you had one? Do you have one? No; I just use my phone. If I had one it’d probably be

9. Would you be the kind of guy to leave a “do not disturb” sign on your hotel room door? Does house-keeping freak you out? I’d leave a do not disturb sign if I was doin’ something I didn’t want to be disturbed at. House-keeping doesn’t freak me out unless the housekeeper’s trying to kill me.

10. How do you feel about the rewrite? I like it. I’ve got better weapons, and people don’t all sound like they’re out of a bonnet movie.

11. What are your feelings toward your country? Country’s in a mess and if I could reboot it, I would.

12. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much does Angel annoy you? Does the scale only go to 10? That’s stupid.

13. If you could travel back in time to any time period, what would you choose? The war between the states. There were a lot of vampire territory wars goin’ on then.

14. Do you like ducks? What is this, National Treasure?

dean head tilt

15. What are your pet peeves? Cats. Cats are my pet peeve.

16. Where do you get the money to ditch your job and go hunting? Some of it’s money I saved working at the ranch. The rest of it I earn doing odd jobs on the side. Plus you save money if you sleep outside and don’t mind killing your own food.

17. What’s your biggest fear? That something’ll happen to someone I care about, and I won’t be able to protect them.

dean life ugly and violent

18. If the opportunity was presented to you, how far would you go to get Em back? I’d go to hell if I had to.

19. What did you think of vampires and other nonhumans before you launched your revenge strike against Samuel? I hated ’em. Bloodsuckers are nothin’ but trouble, and I’ve known that since before I could talk.

20. Do your plans involve killing Angel? Not unless he makes me. I do think he has a death wish.

21. Who do you hate the least (of those who are still alive)? Easton. Don’t hate Easton. She can be stubborn and ignore what I tell her, but I’m glad she’s alive.

22. Do you have any nervous tics or habits? I break things when I’m upset, if that counts.

dean shooting

23. Have you ever watched kitten videos on Youtube? I already told you, I hate cats. Even baby ones. So no.

24. If you could choose your last words, what would you say? I don’t know. I’ve always figured I’d die apologizing to somebody.

dean sad thoughtful

25. Where-ish in Texas are you from? I grew up just outside of Jefferson.

26. Do you ever wear hats? I used to wear some out on the ranch, but I don’t anymore.

dean cowboy27. Favorite color? I like dark leather brown and hunter green. Not big on camo, though. Don’t want to walk around looking like Duck Dynasty.

28. What are three words that you feel describe you? Determined and Purposefully Obtuse.

29. What are three words that you WISH described you? Kind. Cautious. Peaceful.

30. There are at least 14 girls in the world who are in love with you: are you okay with that?

dean don't objectify me





Getting to Know Skata, Round Three

A shoutout to marvelousdiscovery for asking brilliant questions!

dean you're awesome

1) Do you like puppies or kittens, or both? I’ll pick dogs over cats any day. I’m allergic to cats. Dogs are friendly. No contest.

2) Tea or coffee, and how do you take them? Coffee, straight-up black. I know this one guy – name rhymes with ‘paingel’ – who takes – what, five packets of sugar in one black cup of coffee? It’s ridiculous.

3) What’s your weapon of choice, or do you prefer fists? I use a shortened Remington 870, but I like a good brawl. Nothing quite beats fist to face. My fist, other guy’s face.

4) Do you have any siblings? No; it’s just me now.

dean sad thoughtful

5) What was your family like? I had a mom that was too sweet for my leather-knuckled dad. Vamp killed her and infected him, so I took the shotgun and I killed him. I was ten years old.

6) Are you photogenic? Not especially.

dean handsome though

7) What was the last thing someone you cared about said before they died? Nothin’. I haven’t had anyone like that in a long time – not about to start now. I got sick and tired of failing every God-forsaken thing I cared about.

8) Do you believe in love? Yeah, sure. For instance, I love beer, but it’s one-sided and makes me feel used.

9) Are you what girls might call ‘a knight in shining armor’? Are there qualifications?

dean yes no maybe so

10) Did you have a mentor teach you to become a vampire hunter, or did it come naturally? It came naturally. Everyone knows you can stake a vampire with wood, so that’s how I did it. It’s how I did it the second time, and after that, I thought hey, I should do this all the time. ‘Course now I’ve got the preacher who looks like he’s about eight years old trying to give me pointers. Do I need ’em? Maybe, but it chaps my hide. I call him Father just to irritate him. sam and dean

11) If you weren’t a hunter, what would your profession be? Ahh…I’d probably still be on a ranch somewhere. Wide open spaces – can’t beat that.

11) Would you take a beating or watch one? Depends on whether I like the person taking the beating or not. If it was Easton, sure I’d take it. If it was Angel? Well, he’d be on his own. He can heal up later.

12) Can you talk your way out of a problem, or are you not the talking sort? I try all the time, but honestly, it doesn’t seem to work. I usually end up having to fight my way out.

13) Is there any girl who you feel is like a sister to you? Easton Everett. Practically raised her, and I wish Angel’d stop sniffing around. They’re like Bonnie and Clyde or something.


14) Who was your best friend growing up? My dog. I was really original and named him Scout, but hey. German Shepherds look like Scouts.

15) If you knew you were going to lose Em, would you not have married her and saved yourself the heartache? No. I’d do it over again, no matter what I knew. Every time.

16) Do you know about Roy Rogers? Yeah, but I was always more of a Lone Ranger fan.

17) This isn’t really a question, but I know you love Angel. Do not.

damon killer vampire hunter

18) What’s your favorite method of hunting? I like to track ’em down, but they seem to find me an awful lot, so I just kill them there and then.

19) What do you think of Easton? She’s like my baby sister. Probably more trouble than a real sister, but she’s worth it. Most of the time.

20) How is your name pronounced? Uh, flat? One word? Skahtah. Something like that.

Bonus Question: Who is your favorite Disney character? Dude, really? I don’t know; probably the horse in that one movie with the tower.
