Character Dating Profile | Bout of Books 19

InuyashaHater1

My self-summary:

I, Sesshoumaru, require a mate.

What I’m doing with my life:

Seeking to destroy Naraku, Inuyasha and any other bastard who dares cross me. Also, constant traveling.

I’m really good at:

Cross-country hiking, seeking revenge on my enemies, killing, throwing rocks at small demons

Favorite books, movies, shows, musics and food: 

I, Sesshoumaru, do not have knowledge of ‘movies’, and I, Sesshoumaru, do not eat human food.

The six things I could never do without:

Tokijin, acid claws, acid whip, transformation abilities, thirst for revenge…. and Tenseiga, I, Sesshoumaru, suppose.

I spend a lot of time thinking about:

The deaths of my enemies, where to get long-lasting shoes for walking.

On a typical Friday night I am: 

In the woods, on a trail, or killing something.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit:

I, Sesshomaru, owe nobody explanation.

I’m looking for:

A mate for mating purposes.

You should message me if:

You are a powerful female who doesn’t mind amputees, kids or pets and has a thirst for power.


Bout of Books

And that’s it. I modelled the profile off OkCupid’s profile setup, so that’s where the section headers came from. And if you don’t know the person I wrote about, it’s Sesshoumaru – Inuyasha’s half-brother from the manga Inuyasha. I tried to keep him semi-in-character but I couldn’t help but throw a couple OOC things in there, hawhaw. This challenge was seriously fun – I might make it a semi-regular occurrence on this blog, honestly.

Happy reading!

Bout of Books 19 | Day 3 Update

Bout of Books

Happy day 4! Today is another work day for me, so we’ll see how much I get done, hawhaw.

For yesterday, I read the following:

A Court of Wings and Ruin: 66 pages.

…which is kinda awful for being at home schmoozing all day. 😛 But hey, it’s still reading, I suppose.

Woot? :”D
