TMI Tuesday - Ethan Black

So in light of my recent journal post regarding the cancellation (or perhaps I should say reformatting?) of my main story arc, I decided I'd pull my emo raccoon out of his dark corner and have him address your questions. He may decide to not answer specific questions, if they are too close to home (or may contain a story spoiler.)

Ethan's responses will be this color.

Do you think things happened to you too quickly?  I've had to remind myself on several occasions that the tales of your adventures all happened within days.
VerbMyNoun

Looking back, I suppose so. I wondered to myself why I was so popular all of a sudden, and it bothered me pretty bad. I've always enjoyed flying under the radar. Even though I wasn't popular, I was never bullied, either. I was just... invisible. I liked that. And while yes, everything as far as me ending up in bed with three wonderful women happened quickly, it was a long fall from grace after that.

Still, I harbor no ill-will or regrets. I made a good friend out of Sean, an enemy. I am still great friends with Wendy, and wish for nothing but love and happiness for her in the future.Shyara and I are still on good terms, and I'm excited for the day when I will hold our baby for the first time. And in the end, I wound up with the girl of my dreams.

True, a lot of people got hurt along the way, myself included. It saddens me a little to know that I might not ever be able to do my acrobatics. I never intended for Uncle Walter to die, no matter what anyone says about him. And I wish that Claire's friendship with Shyara was salvageable. All these things are terrible, sure, but I don't regret any of them, since so much good came from it all.

Given a chance to relive the events that I've read about so far, would you care to have them unfold quicker or slower?  Differently?  At a different time?
VerbMyNoun

As tempting as it would be, I don't think I would. By trying to fix what went wrong, who knows how that would change the things that went right?
VerbMyNoun

I almost forgot to mention how much happier my aunt and cousins are now, too. This is probably the happiest I've seen them since before my parents died.

Hey man. Do you feel any sympathy for Walter?  Yeah he was a shitbag, but he was family. Plus no one deserves death... right?
VerbMyNoun

I was just telling soggymaster not too long ago that I think it sucks that Uncle Walt died. I wouldn't wish that on anyone - other than myself, thank God I'm feeling better now - but thankfully, it has enabled Tatiana, Svetlana, and Illyana to be able to live without fear of what he would do to them. Tatiana, especially. I've never seen her so happy. I hope she finds herself a good man, someday.

You seem to care a lot about your Aunt.

Still harbor any of those fantasies about your Aunt? ;p
(Don't ask how we knew, we just did)

Also how is Sean, when he's not being a jerk? He's got to be quarterback for a reason right?
VerbMyNoun

*Runs paw through hair and blushes a bit*

Was it that obvious? Uhm, I mean yeah, she's a beautiful, strong, kind woman who went through hell to protect her family. Plus, her accent is pretty hot. I don't think any straight m.an, or lesbian, could find her unattractive. Even my own girlfriend has a small crush on 'Tiana.

After Josie broke up with him, he realized just how stupid the popularity contests at the school really were, and how badly his actions hurt other people. He's gotten a lot better ever since, and we're good friends. He's a pretty good guy, so give him a second chance, okay?

So, are you planning on collage? I know you wanted to be a GA, so do I!

How old is your little girl with Shy now? When's her birthday? Does she have wings like her mom?
VerbMyNoun
5 years, 8 months ago
Uhm... Shyara's still pregnant, so... she's not very old at all. If the pregnancy goes full-term, she'll be born early May. We don't know if she'll have Shy's membranes yet. Since she's in such cramped space, she can't really lift her arm much for us to see in the ultrasound pics.

I'm still planning on college, yes. I'm not sure what yet, though. Recent events have me re-evaluating a lot of things. I'll probably take a bunch of general education credits just to knock out some pre-reqs while I try to make up my mind.

Well man, I'm glad you made it through heart and head attached. I've literally  loss sleep worrying about your sorry ass, so keep your head up alright?

Glad to of had a chat with you Ethan.

Don't lose sleep over me. I've got enough support to get me by.

*shakes your hand*

So Ethan, you are obviously quite good at diplomacy considering the pragmatic answers you have given people so far. However, considering that we do not know very much about the younger years of your life, the years spent with your parents it is hard to say if you are a well adjusted young man considering al that you have been through, or a pathological liar.

So my question is this, what life lessons would you say you learned from your parents, especially your father
VerbMyNoun
5 years, 8 months ago
I've never liked having the spotlight on me to begin with. Let's just say I've been too quick with my mouth plenty of times in the past, and I've learned to temper my responses, and in some cases, omit certain truths.

Mom taught me the importance of love and family. That's probably why I was so eager to start one when the chance presented itself - I wanted to start a new one of my own. In fact, I wanted to name our baby after my mother - Hannah - but Shyara associates that name with something else, so we're still thinking.

Dad taught me the importance of picking myself up after getting knocked down, dusting myself on, and pressing forward. I admit, I forgot that lesson for a time, but my family didn't, and they helped to pull me through.

Well-adjusted or pathological liar, think what you will. I'm only here because a certain someone asked me to answer some questions. The only opinions that really matter to me are my friends' and family's.

Thank you, knowing a bit more about your family I would absolutely say well adjusted for the things life has thrown at you.

Thanks.

What has been the hardest choice you have ever had to make?

What was the easiest?

Fave food?

Fave dessert?

How do you like answering these questions?
VerbMyNoun
5 years, 8 months ago
If you ever have three women that you love fighting with each other and you over your heart, and you need to choose one, come back and tell me how easy it is.

The easiest decision? Deciding which decision was the hardest, just now.

My favorite food would be corned beef and swiss on rye.

I don't have a favorite dessert - I'd prefer to go back for seconds on the entree, if there's anything left.

Answering these questions can be annoying sometimes, if they get too personal. Like your first question. Otherwise, it's not too bad. I'd rather be left alone, though, but Claire and Wendy have been encouraging me to try and open up more, so... here I am.
BlastoTheHanar

Had a feeling you weren't much of one for dessert.
VerbMyNoun
5 years, 8 months ago
I like to keep myself in shape. Now that I can't run like I used to, it's even more important to watch what I eat. I'm looking for a prosthetic, though, that will allow me to run and still be concealable under my slacks.
