The Fanboy/girl Quiz
[Awhile back, when we were just getting started, I posted a fan quiz. I think maybe a couple people took it. I’d like to hear from a few more of you this time around. This one is actually a more general sci-fi/geek quiz I created for my myspace page years back. I’ll start it off with my answers and then you can cut and paste your own. If a certain section or question doesn’t pertain to your likes, skip it, that’s why it’s not numbered. Enjoy!]

Recall an embarrassing moment where your love of genre created an awkward situation: Those age recommendations on the rp boxes are there for a reason. I once scared the bajeezus out of a cousin I was watching over while running him through an Aliens inspired rp, bringing him to tears. I never
watched over the kids again. (jk)
