--The Red Queen
HI DEAREST POLYPALS. How are you? Teehee. I love holidays. I'm sad it's going to be over in no time, though.
(When I get back to school I'm sure I'll still write 2010 on the paper. I usually get mixed up.)
Oh. This is shameless but follow follow follow my Tumblr!
Yesterday I watched Alice in Wonderland. I know they changed the plot so much, but I like the Red Queen. I think she's the best. I love this part: http://ribbonsonlisbons.tumblr.com/post/2525687463. If you've watched the movie you probably remember the way she said "Her name is Um, idiot!" Oh my God. I rewinded that part 10203874647 x.
I'm sorry, rambling. It's Polyvore's most common syndrome for being an ever-lasting member.

Answer these questions in character-
▶Tell us about you.
Hullo, my belles. My name’s Alannah Keets. It’s –eets; not –eats on keats, but –eets on meets, if that makes sense. The mod didn’t list my year in my bio like she did to everyone else’s, but I guess you can simply figure out that I’m a sophomore? Yeah. A sophomore at Washington University, to be exact. I suppose a bajillion girls have said the same thing for like, a week? I don’t know. So forget that. I can’t stand conventional way of introducing selves, but darling, it’s 21st Century, so everybody has to get straight to the point in order to be known. Anyhow, since I’m the lankiest girl in campus, and with these clanky, chunky heels, jingling jewelries, flaming red hair, and gleaming chrome-diopside-like (do you even know what is CHROME DIOPSIDE? I can’t believe I’m bringing the Chem. up.) eyes, it’s hard to disguise myself in the midst of the crowd.
I dyed my hair black awhile ago, but people keep telling me they recall me as “The Red-Haired Girl Who Dyed Her Hair Black” and they literally used to call me that way for a semester. Which is a Disaster. (Disaster with a capital and bolded D.)
However, I take Chemistry as a major. If you see me for the very first time, you might think I’m a Communication student or hm… a Political Science baby. But hey! You won’t guess it’d rain if the sky were bright, right? Nah. (I’m kind of sick with the phrase “Don’t judge a book by its cover” so I make a new, horrid one. I wish you literature chicks won’t mind.) I actually loved Art, but I’m obviously the worst at it. I mean, come on, I got D for it in my elementary school and the teacher suggested me to swap my class. Aha, cool story bro. I can tell you Art was a jerky yet hauntingly beautiful boyfriend who tore my heart apart. Fortunately, the knight in shiny armor, let’s name it Chemistry, came to rescue me awhile back later. It gives me every reason to hope that every problem has a solution… Oh. I H-E-A-R-T CHEMISTRY.
▶How do you see yourself and how do others see you?
I’m a starfruit. I have five edges and sometimes it may not seem symmetrical, nevertheless when you taste me, I promise you’ll always find the same flavor.
Anyhow, there are some quotable letters from my old folders. I think these can answer the second question so here you go:
Alannah Keets’ Psychology Report by Howard Wolffe: She’s a humble girl with a sharp mind. She always interested in people’s imperfections and science. It’s better to get her more activities to do. I think if she evaluates herself more and lets herself wander sometimes, she could make something big in the future.
Queenie Holland’s letter from Ibiza, twelve years ago: …You know, you are a tad bit witty.
A letter from my stepfather to my mother, seven years ago: To me, she sounds a bit impolite.
Leif Lovelock, boyfriend, in school’s yearbook: She’s eats too much fruits.
▶What is your history? Tell us about life growing up.
You really want to know about it? All right… My father died when I was six and his COD (cause of death) remains unknown. He was a good lad, though. He stayed at home a lot, but he kept telling me he ran a huge business out there. Which I believe was true. (Apparently I finally figured out that my father ran this toilet paper industry. TOILET PAPER, seriously.) A year later, my mother, a beautician, re-married my father’s client, and I officially changed my last name by then. Mr. Keets is a nice man; we’re actually close. I was still a kid when my father died, so when someone got into my family at that age, I didn’t bother. Anyhow, Mr. Keets is simply Mr. Keets. I never heard anyone calls him with his first name. My mother herself calls him ‘K’, which is a short of Keets. That’s ridiculous, I know right? Probably his first name is humiliating, like Kapowickhia or Kvabonejowski or… Kinkywrecker. Oh, let’s forget about my silly stepfather name. I grew up with lemons, grapes, books about J.J. Thompson, Marie Curie and Ernest Rutherford and those people who made history, telescope, and my basement laboratory. My friends were the ones who wore these thick, aquarium-like glasses, and got slick, lardy hair, and our favorite joke was:
“If it ain’t tubes, we don’t do it.”
And our all time funny story was:
‘Two sodium atoms were walking along the street when one stops and says, "Oh my goodness, I think I've lost an electron!” "Are you sure?" asks his companion. "Yes," replies the first sodium atom. "I'm positive.”’
Nah, you get it, don’t you? If you don’t, no worries; I’m cool with it. We drank Chembeer (our made-up beer) from empty perfume bottles and occasionally snuck inside the lab at night. However, when I reside in this campus, I tend to hang with everyone.
▶What are your likes, dislikes, favorite bands, hobbies, etc?
I adore fruits. Obviously. When I first moved in to my dorm, my roomie awfully shocked when she saw me unpacking steel, cold suitcase with packaged fruits inside of it. I mean, loads of them. I always eat them all the time. I don’t know. They’re like, the most delicious thing in the world. I mean, nature made it. Or God. So it tastes godly amazing. I love it when I chew it in my mouth and the yummie vitamins flushed in my mouth and… Well. It’s hard to resist such thing. I also like doughnuts. And candy floss. Chocolates are nice too, but I’m not a big fan of them. My favorite music is Turk. You don’t know that? Well… beside of that, I enjoy chamber music. I really like failures too. I mean, if I did it wrong, then I know I will soon discover some way to get it right. I dislike… politics. Hm. And I can’t stand celebrities. Should I add more? Oh, I avoid watching TV. I assume it’s unhealthy. But hey, I watch movies, though. When I get really strained out, I watch comedies. My crappy hobbies including visiting The Cheesecake Factory, believing in my Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast, and lounging in the Chemistry Library, I think. Yeah. I’m not original, I know.
▶Finally, If there was a quote to describe you, what would it be?
“The name is Bond. Covalent Bond. Sharing, not taking.”
Answer these questions out of character-
▶Why do you want to be apart of this roleplay?
I’m sick of roleplays that promised to be serious in writing but you know what – as you got your ass on it and you used your time to write long shitty story that apparently came from your mind and heart and inspirations and then – TA-DAH – none commented. Or, when they did, they just commented on your outfits or irrelevant with something I expected them to read. Well. I was in those roleplays, and I always like… Is it just like that? Anyways, I ain’t hopeless and I wish this roleplay could be different. I know I don’t always write, but I promise in this one I’ll do my best. The characters are so fun to read and I can’t wait to play along with them!
▶What other roleplays are you in and do you think you will be able to make at least one set a week (preferably more)?
I am in Big Apple Interns, La Cruise de Votre Vie, and Blair Woods. And I will.
▶List your top three choices.
1. Alannah Keets (the model would be Kate Somers)
2. Cece Delgado (the model would be Nimue Smit)
3. Jacquelyn Cohen (the model would be Jac Jagaciak)
▶Do you have some sort of storyline planned for your character?
The opposite of no. ☺
