Terry Pratchett, The Light Fantastic (via discworldquotes)
I OFTEN GET THE URGE TO THANK PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN GENUINELY NICE AND POLITE TO ME BUT I NEVER DO
IT SEEMS SOMEHOW AWKWARD
8. Could they fend for themselves in a strange environment? In the wilderness? In a town or country where they don’t know anyone? How well would they find their way around and meet basic needs?
It’s a situation she’s found herself in several times in the past (SOME OF WHICH Y’ALL ALREADY KNOW) so she’s surprisingly good at it by now. When there are people around she plays the pathetic, weak, scared little girl (which isn’t hard to do) so she’s either pitied or considered not worth wasting a bullet on. She’s never had to live in the wildnerness for more than maybe one night when she was younger, so WHO KNOWS. PROBABLY NOT VERY WELL.
15. How readily do they emote? How much or how well do they think they express emotions?
She expresses her emotions readily, usually in the form of a VERY LOUD SHOUT, and knows it. She wishes she had a better poker face - or, in fact, any poker face at all - but she’s just too easily worried for that to happen any time soon.
20. Do they like people, in general? Do they tend to believe people are good, bad, selfish, altruistic, neutral?
She likes people, at the same time as being terrified of most of them. She tends to be overly trusting and sympathetic towards others, even when they don’t deserve it and will probably turn around and betray her instantly. There are, however, certain crimes for even she will not forgive. Like murder.
She also doesn’t belive that ‘people’ are anything - a person can be good, bad, selfish etc, but saying that people are like that just causes problems later. There are always exceptions.
