TCTP: What’s your nerdy guilty pleasure/What’s your fandom?
AF: I feel like the older I get, the more my interests align with a 12-year-old boy - video games, comic books, etc. It changes so frequently, but I would say my top two forever are Avatar/Legend of Korra and Steven Universe. Also Life is Strange and Horizon Zero Dawn. Aloy is BAE.
TCTP: What clique were you in in high school?
AF: The drama kids. Constantly looking for ways to skip class and go to the theatre room.
TCTP: What secret did you have as a 15 year old?
AF: I convinced a person in a random AIM chat room that I was the voice of the little Octopus from Finding Nemo, and they thought they were meeting a celebrity. Also, definitely wrote 7th Heaven fanfiction and turned it in as an English assignment. That definitely happened.
TCTP: If you had a month to live, what would you do?
AF: One of two things would happen. I would either blow all my money on going on a tropical vacation paradise and try to time that with my death...or get the most embarrassing tattoo and film people's reactions to it on public transit. Either way, it would have to be something that brought humor and happiness to the people of the world.
TCTP: Who would you play as? Demon queen, dark elf, half orc wizard, or rogue gnome?
AF: ROGUE GNOME DUH
