Hmm… Have you ever been the victim of discrimination due to your being an atheist?
(Jeez, that's worded ackwardly…)
No, not really.

What made you decide to give Volcaryu to Carl?
It was just the sort of thing Carl would do, so he did it. And it offers lovely opportunity for Chaletwo to get all worried in his subtly-fatherly ways.

What are you favorite animes/mangas?
They don't show any anime over here and I've never been into either anime or manga at all; my boyfriend has showed me a couple of episodes of various anime and gotten me to read a couple of manga books, but it would be wildly irresponsible of me to start picking a favorite based on that. Quite literally the only non-Pokémon anime I've seen any substantial number of episodes of is Neon Genesis Evangelion, which he made me watch in its entirety. Even so, I never got that much into it, really (maybe I just need to watch it again to properly get what the hell is going on). So I'm… eh, not really qualified to answer this question.

Do you watch subbed anime, or other TV programs, exluding Pokémon?
As I said, my boyfriend likes to show me things he likes, but I rarely see more than a few episodes of whatever he's most obsessed with at any given moment.

Do you like dubbed anime in general?
Judging from Evangelion and Pokémon, I tend not to be too fond of English dub voice acting, but again, not really qualified to answer. Actually I think they are quite literally the only dubbed anime I have ever seen.

Have you always been a perfectionist?
Pretty much.

Do you think Ash's Chimchar will evolve?
I have not seen a single episode of D/P and exactly one post-Kanto episode. I'm really not qualified to answer that question. Hell, I didn't even know his Chimchar hadn't evolved yet.

Do you like exploiting glitches in Video Games?
Trying them is often fun if they have interesting or bizarre effects. Actually exploiting them tends to take the fun out of it.

How much, on a regular day, TV do you watch?
About six minutes average. This would be because I watch a 45-minute episode of Lost once a week. :P Well, okay, my boyfriend downloads House and I watch that with him, but that's on his computer so it's not technically TV.

Are you fluent in any languages other than English and Icelandic?
No, but I speak a little bit of Danish and German and a very, very tiny bit of Japanese.

Mark: Umm, religion…? Like, legendaries? I mean, I like to think the legendaries are watching over the world making sure nothing bad will happen, but after sort of… getting personally involved in it, I can't really think of it in a reverent or godlike way anymore.

May: Religion is dumb. The legendaries exist, sure, but they're just Pokémon. Worshipping them is stupid and won't get you anywhere.

Alan: I don't know. Maybe there's a higher being that's not just like the normal legendaries. I don't really think about it much.

What do you mean, putting that in the story? The point I was trying to make through their answers was that the Pokémon world in the Quest for the Legends universe has absolutely no organized religion in the sense in which we understand it and just a bit of general legendary mythology; that's hardly something that can be "put in" the story. :/ The little potential there is for doing anything with it is already in there, namely Mark's loss of "faith" in the legendaries after getting involved in Chaletwo's plan and realizing they seem to be really just flawed individuals serving their own agendas.

He has no faith in them in the sense that he can no longer view them as deities to be revered in the same way as he used to to some degree. In the sense of believing they exist, of course he does; Chaletwo has told him as much, and he wouldn't be a very good legendary enthusiast if he were inclined to think they don't exist to begin with.
