Vincent's Questions
1. What makes you think you can handle raising a child when you're barely
able to keep your own shit together?
I care about Brenden a lot more than I care about myself. I want the best for him. I want him to be happy. If I keep my own shit together, the more I can succeed at that. Therefore, I end up taking care of myself more. No doubt, simply loving someone is not qualification to raise a child, but if I keep doubting myself, then I will never have a family of my own, and I will never progress.
2. Why did you think racing on a horse was a good idea when you're lame in one leg?
Because I've done it before on normal horses. My leg isn't weak and it doesn't hurt on its own, it's just limited in range. I could take tiny steps all the time and never have a limp, but then I wouldn't get anywhere and look retarded.
3. Nearly blown up anyone lately?
I think bombs are going to be far and few between. Since building them is illegal, and probably not a good idea (sadly), unless I move to South Africa, I think my days of blowing things and people are gone.
4. What's it like being such a fuck-up?
Everyone's busy with their own lives, their own children, their own careers. No one has time nor the desire to reach out to the one that bites the hand that feeds. I've made my bed. There was one point in my life that I thought it would be nice to have a father, to have a husband, to make someone proud, to do my family honor. Now I try my best not to dishonor my family anymore, not to get in their way, and to forget about the foolish wishes that will never happen.
5. Should I be worried about your son since you've got a record for assaulting minors?
No. Should I be worried about your family since you've killed scores and scores of men and fought in a brutal war that, in the very least, ought to give you disorienting nightmares? You don't care about me, so it's none of your business unless it's a crime.

Darius' Questions
1. What ever happened to that sword?
It was a dagger. And actually, I've been meaning to talk to you about that, but I've been super busy with Brenden.
2. We ever going to make it to a concert?
I HOPE SO. Maybe for one of our birthday presents? Times are tight.
3. What was it like growing up Drake?
Fun, sometimes, but worth every moment.
4. Why weren't we friends in school, since we were the same year and house?
I didn't want to date you.
5. What made you pick cursebreaking?
Everyone said I was a shoe in for it, and I thought someone might need to be in a "safe" job, for the family. Though, when I look back on it, a safe job didn't stop some people from being killed. After I hurt my leg, I didn't really have much of a choice but to stay in it when it came to the other things I had been considering doing after school.

Marcus' Questions
1) Still into motorcycles? If so, you should drop by my place! :)
Why not? I'm taking care of a scooter for someone right now.
2) Overall, are you entirely happy or do you consider that there are certain aspects in your life that need changes?
I think there's always room for improvement. I think "entirely happy" is a hard place to get, but contented is a reasonable goal, though I do believe that there are some parts of my life that will never settle.
3) Is being a parent everything you have ever hoped for? Do you consider you'll want more children?
Yes I want more children. Being a parent is a little strange. I'd be lying if I didn't say so. I wasn't really hoping for anything yet when it happened.
4) MAC. Have you ever considered a department or career change?
5) The Endless battle between the Monkey and the Cat, who do you think it will win? ;)
Monkey. Not only can a monkey climb a tree, it can get down.

Jay's Questions
1. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Where do you see us?
Getting ready to take Brenden to Hogwarts. I want you to be right there with me, at least metaphorically. You know, it gets messy in public.
2. Do you wish we had met sooner? Why or why not?
No. I'm not a very impressive human being right now and I was even more despicable 5 years ago. I kind of wish I was five years older to tell the truth.
3. What is one thing you most regret?
I never talk to you about this.
4. How many children /do/ you want?
I'm not sure yet. I don't want to have more than we can support.
5. Are you happy with the way things are now?.. with us? And the world in general? Why or why not?
Yes. Yes. Somewhat. Because we had to let go of a lot of good people to let go of the bad.

Riana's Questions
1) Did you ever think that you would be where you are now?
I hoped for some things about now, but not for others, so I suppose you could say I sort of thought about it.
2) Why'd you leave us? *Sniff* No, I mean, are you happy at your new place?
I'll answer both. Jay and I both liked the place. We also loved living with you and Paige. However, getting our on place seemed like an important step, for Brenden. We are very happy. COME VISIT.
3) Can I kidnap Brenden soon? We should settle our marriage arrangements, too...
You're always welcome.
4) And crazy parties that I should know about coming up?
No crazy parties. I don't like leaving Brenden with family as babysitters all the time. I don't have much time with him as it is. And I don't ever want to put him in a compromising position concerning care. Plus, I never want him to see me out of control. That sort of puts me at a very very selective limited party situation...that or I have to readjust what I think by party.
5) If you had the oppertunity to do something you knew was wrong, but no one else would ever know - would you?
I have, but I didn't. Shame is shame whether other people know or not.

1. You do realize that we're pretty much screwed when it comes to being out in public right? Are you of the mind that we should sacrifice some public togetherness as a family so that Brenden doesn't suffer?
2. What is the best thing about your new job?
3. What other jobs do you think I'd be good at and ones that you would be supportive of me doing?
4. I know we don't talk about it, but how are you doing after your brother died?
5. What do you think we should get Brenden for his birthday?
