Cat Runs a Bakery + Character Survey, Featuring Alana Quinn of Who Knows, Who Cares

Nope, there's not actually a cat out there who runs a bakery that I know of. I'm just talkin' about a kid's book I just kinda finished up, titled Jellybean's Bakery! It's been on the backburner for a few months, but I lost my Internet access from Monday to Wednesday and it kinda forced me to be productive. -_-

Also, I have no idea how to do this "publishing" thing so I have no clue if it would ever even get its feet/paws off the ground. But here's a little preview! :D



^ One of Jellybean's co-workers there is a character in another story of mine; ten points to whoever can name him. XD


So yeah! I dunno if it's gonna go anywhere, but hey, maybe someday!

- - -

And now for a survey I've stolen from several other people. ::tehe: The character in question here is Alana Quinn from Who Knows, Who Cares, who will also be the one answering questions!

1: What's your OCs favorite color?
I dunno, I don't think about that often. I wear a lot of blue, so probably blue.

2: Where does your OC work?
I don't work anywhere, but I'm in high school. That's kinda like working without pay, right?

3: What's your OCs favorite food?
Stir fry and burgers. I can't choose.

4: Does your OC prefer paper or plastic bags?
Hm. I don't know why, but my mom keeps a hoard of plastic bags within a bigger plastic bag in our garage, and for some reason they always come in handy when I need one, so I think I prefer those.

5: How old is your OC?
I'm fifteen.

6: Does your OC have any supernatural powers?
Nah, but that'd be pretty cool.

7: Is your OC in a relationship?
Not a romantic one, but I have a few close friends.

8: What are some of your OCs strengths?
I don't usually wear my heart on my sleeve, so I can get past a lot of people's radars if I'm upset or something.

9: What are some of your OCs weaknesses?
Well, my "strength" up there can probably be a weakness too. I guess I don't open up a whole lot.

10: What is your OCs favorite outfit?
Just any old t-shirt and jean shorts. Not short ones, though - that might be somebody else's sense of style and I'm cool with that, but I usually just wear cutoffs that come to my knees. Sometimes people still think I'm a boy.

11: What is your OCs spirit animal?
Uh, I dunno. Julian hates that phrase so I just avoid thinking about it out of respect to him. Why don't we just go with a Harry Potter reference and call it a patronus? Mine's probably a sloth, in all honesty.

12: Is your OC sexually active?

13: What is your OCs earliest memory?
Marcus used to play catch with me in our backyard. We'd throw a football back and forth when I was barely old enough to stand, and Mom would sit in one of the lawn chairs and watch us.

14: Does your OC have a cell phone? If so, what kind?
Yeah. It's a slide phone. I mean, why do I need a bunch of apps? I don't pay my phone bill, but my mom does, and I wouldn't want her to pay a huge one every month.

15: What makes your OC angry?
I'm not a big fan of being lied to, and I hate when people are so obvious about their pity for you.

16: When is your OCs favorite time of year?
I love the dog days of summer, when it's quiet out and warm, when I can wear shorts at night and not freeze. I love sunny days with nothing to do. I also love the dead of winter in the middle of the night. There's something cool about quiet times of year.

17: How long can your OC hold their breath?
About ten seconds. I don't do very well underwater.

18: What kind of underwear does your OC wear?
I'm gonna pretend you didn't ask that question.

19: Does your OC prefer plaid or polka dots?
Plaid. Julian says I look like a lesbian whenever I wear plaid shirts, but he's gay, so I don't take it as an insult. He says he loves lesbians anyway, whatever that means.

20: What's your OCs favorite kind of pizza?
I'm a walking cliche. I love Hawaiian pizza, and I'm Hawaiian. Har har.

21: Who is your OCs best friend?
Julian Martin, the man who wore the Crispy the Tiger suit years before I even moved to Woodward. He's a dork.

22: Has your OC ever killed someone?
God, I hope not.

23: Whats your OCs biggest secret?
I had to keep the whole Crispy thing under wraps for a while.

24: What does your OC smell like?
(She sniffs her armpits.) Uh, deodorant.

25: What time of year does your OC prefer?
Summertime, because I don't have school to think about.

26: Is your OC a human or an animal? (or something else idk)
Yes, I'm actually a real tiger underneath the tiger suit. I'm just kidding, I'm only human!

27: What languages does your OC speak?
I'm fluent in English, I understand bits and pieces of Hawaiian, and I'm taking Spanish classes, so does that count?

28: Does your OC like anime?
Uh, sure. Pokemon is anime, right?

29: Can your OC swim?
Yeah, but I can still drown.

30: What does your OC choose to do about the, er, hair down there?
Again, I am not answering that question.

31: Does your OC believe in fairies?

32: Did your OC go to college? What did they major in?
I'm still in high school! Don't ask me these questions, they make me think about grown-up stuff.

33: Are your OCs parents dead?
My dad is dead, but my mom's still here, thank God. My brother, Marcus, is also pushing up daisies.

34: Is your OC religious?
I dunno, I don't think about it a whole lot.

35: How flexible is your OC?
People call me a walking stick bug. Like a stick, I'm also horribly inflexible.

36: What turns your OC on?
(She rolls her eyes.)

37: What was your OCs first word?
Probably "mama" or "dada" or something like that.

38: Does your OC have any pets?
No, I moved around too much as a kid to be able to have a pet. Maybe I can convince Mom to get me a dog or cat someday.

39: Who is your OCs biggest enemy?
I could be deep here and say I'm my worst enemy. I'm not going to, though, because that's stupid.

40: What is the craziest thing your OC has done?
I became my high school mascot my freshman year without fully understanding the consequences of doing so. That's pretty insane, I think.

41: What is your OCs motto about life?
I have no idea. Maybe something like, "Life is good and bad at the same time." There, put that on a bumper sticker.

42: Does your OC drink coffee or tea?
Neither. I just eat cereal in the morning and I'm good to go.

43: Who is your OCs biggest hero?
My mom. She's had to deal with a lot of crap over the years, but she's the strongest person I know. I hope I can grow up and be as resilient as she is.

44: What color eyes does your OC have?

45: Does your OC like reading?
Sure, if I like the book.

46 :Is your OC loyal?
Yeah, I'd like to think so. I don't just dump friends out of the blue. I had to say goodbye to everyone when I moved around the country, but I let them know beforehand.

47: Does your OC tolerate violence?
I had to in order to be Crispy. It was mindless violence, but that's just it - it was mindless.

48: What social class is your OC from?
Uh...middle class? I guess in terms of popularity, I never stood out, but I wasn't really an "outcast."

49: What country was your OC born in?
The USA. Tennessee, more specifically.

50: Does your OC cry easily?
No. Not unless somebody dies or I get whacked upside the head and lose my equilibrium.

51: What is your OCs favorite genre of music?
I don't really pay attention to genre, I just listen to whatever makes me zone out. Pop-punk or indie, usually.

52: How does your OC feel about insects?
Kill them all! Especially roaches!

53: What is your OCs sexual orientation?
I'm pretty sure I'm straight. Like a bunch of other crap, I don't think a whole lot about it.

54: Does your OC smoke?

55: What gender is your OC?
I'm a girl.

56: What kind of clothes does your OC wear?
My mom always tells me to spruce up my wardrobe, but I am perfectly content to spend my days in t-shirts and knee-shorts.

57: Would you call your OC adventurous?
Eh, it depends. My freshman year was an adventure to me, but I don't know if someone else would consider it one.

58: Is your OC introverted or extroverted?
Introverted, by far.

59 :What is the first thing that someone would notice about your OC?
Probably my hair. It's cut real short, and it sticks out all over the place. I can never quite tame it.

60: Does your OC enjoy nature?
Sure. I like long walks on the beach, and late night drives through the plains, and...oh, wait, wrong website.

Have a great night, everyone! :D
