Lina on a Couch
It's the I'm Hearing Voices Blogfest!
I have to admit, I had no idea who to blog about when I first signed up, but when Lina appeared late last month, I knew I had to get to know her better and this was the perfect opportunity to do so. So, without further ado, I bring you Lina (last name as of yet unknown)!
Today's session is a Q&A.
So Lina, what's your biggest vulnerability?
Well, being blind doesn't help me, nor is it a secret. It's hard to get around, but Von's been helping for a bit now and that's nice of him.
What do people believe about you is false?
For some reason, when people see that I'm blind they also think I'm dumb and deaf. I heard 'she's blind, she can't tell anyone anything' several times when I lived on the streets. I always found it funny.
What would your best friend say is your fatal flaw?
Von says I don't have ambition, that I'm like a lamb doing what the Order tells me to do. He's always breaking rules and doing his own thing, while I just sit tight until we have a mission.
And what would he say is your redeeming quality?
When I'm in the Sleeping World, I don't shatter the souls of the people I kill like the others. Von always smiles at me when he sees how my collection of souls has grown, says I'm too good of a person, too kind. I think that's the only thing he likes about me. Most of the time he just calls me a little kid and grumbles about having to take care of me.
What do you want the most, and what will you do to get it?
I don't want anything. I mean, I'm happy where I am. I used to live on the streets of Barcelona, but now that I'm with the Order I always have food, a bed, a roof. What more should I want? Though, I do like sweets. I always beg Von for a pastry when we walk by a bakery and I'm not above shedding tears to get one.
Gah, my answers are two words over the word count. Please don't be angry, super awesome hosts Cassie and Angela!
Come back Wednesday for more!
