First question: I do not have a lover, but my death and return as a capsuleer did send my clan's skadi scrambling to work on the genealogy charts which did, well, restart debate about whether a resurrected capsuleer is to be considered the same person or his/her own offspring. That debate about capsuleers being the same person vs offspring had been going on since the clan produced its first capsuleer, quite a few years before my time. The result of the debate is still inconclusive, since a week later the clan went, "Get back to work," and shelved the topic.

Until that time another family produces a capsuleer.

Second question: Age 7, made to study really difficult math. Took me about a week to work the problems out, got the answer onto paper and brought it to my Pa. He took out a chart, revealing to me that for every engineering math problem, there is a reference chart associated with it. I threw a tantrum. Pa just laughed.

He kept teasing me about it for a year.

Have you ever wanted to punch your own clone?

Yes, instead I went on Penitent status to try to work it out more constructively.

How do you solve a problem like Nauplius? (permanently?)

You don't. He's a capsuleer and thus not someone you can truly force to do anything. The only solution is the same as you apply to any other capsuleer like that. Stop encouraging him by giving him attention and silently destroy his assets whenever they pop up. Step two, have more patience and fortitude than him. Repeat.

Worlds upon worlds where nothing lives that would recognize in us anything of themselves, where the idea of humanity is quaint and ancient. Where weapons such as ourselves would be abhorrent and horrifying to everything the inhabitants stand for, and where the insane race to escape death, which has given New Eden the twin atrocities of the Amarr faith, and us, has finally been left in the dustbin of history where it belongs.

Should I go back to the arm with the built-in multi-meter and toolkit, or stick with the meat?

Tool-arm. It's less frail and has more utility. Before you start complaining about the lack of sensations, mech-prosthetics these days also come silicon and sensor mesh coating/skin that can simulate sensations up to about 70% accuracy, and that number's increasing every day. Sure, by the decimals but progress is progress.

Have you ever pondered about what it will be to have one's own mind hitch a ride in another person's clone while that clone still possess it's original's mind and personality?

It depends. Exactly what are you looking for in the skirt? Are you seeking a skirt that can keep your knickers warm? Tantalise? Look pretty? Cover up something you don't want people to see or to emphasise what you want people to see?

I prefer a skirt that doesn't confine my legs to the point that I can't walk properly in; preferably knee-length to full length.

Which do you prefer, a fine brandy or a strong whiskey?

Whiskey. Because nothing soothes a raging headache from the day's nonsense like a solid kick to the head.

I'll never turn my nose up at a good brandy, but a good cask-strength whisky is an absolute delight; dilute it down with a little spring water at every sip to tease out different flavors, or just swig some straight-up if you want to be knocked out your socks. It's a party every time.

After dreaming about them for a while, I feel great affinity with comets; literally very chill, pleasingly solitary, typically long and lazy orbits with brief but exhilarating burst of speed at periapsis.

When was the last time someone was just plain happy to see you?

Today. In fact, every day.

If you meant capsuleers, then it's 'never'.

The electroactive megastructures of unknown composition arranged in a 'scattered matchstick' formations wedged between two space-time sinks. ARC fleet participants know what I'm talking about.

Goes to show the sort of things sentient entities can come up with if they have the know-how.

Anyone figured out what those megastructures are for yet?

Guess that's a general "no," pilot. Sorry.

Tell me about a space you've visited and enjoyed staying in, for the sake of the space itself.

For the sake of the space itself, gonna go with Amarr territory, those nebulae reflects really well off most hulls that gives them a beautiful golden sheen, particularly minmatar hulls ironically enough, that mixture of red and gold looks super sharp.
Honestly making all of their ships golden was really missing a trick when it came to gorgeous aesthetics.

In general I'd agree about the aesthetics. Only, I dressed a Raven up in Matigu Seabeast to take on Mr. Nauplius's citadel above Achura (the planet's mostly wet where it's not tall), and that was really really pretty ... until I got it home. Caldari ships look strange and brutal in Amarrian space and stations to begin with, and sea blue-green with a vivid splash of bioluminescent green just looks awful, and terribly out of place.

To the question, I like frigates best. They're little (for something huge), flexible, generally not awfully expensive, easy to maneuver, and tend not to be priority targets if there are larger ships around.

They do die a lot, and you never run into anything smaller than you are. But if you don't go for the expensive ones you can afford to fly them a little recklessly, even if you don't have a large budget.

If you've customized your quarters, what about them makes them particularly "yours?"

I put up my grandmother's banners on the wall. It's not much, but it's better than the bare bulkheads, and it makes it feel a little more like home.

Do you mean 'live as' as living a life like theirs or by being them for a day? If it is the latter then my answer is Lunarisse Aspenstar. Just so I can experiance the joy of being a mother again.

If you could travel back in time to relive a part of your past. Which would it be?
