I have a feeling the "Do you like children" and "Are you a booklover" questions sort of clinched it for me. Though I presumed Deanna would be higher on the list since "Do you love chocolate" and "Are you continually in conflict with your mother" also factored heavily. I knew I'd never be Beverly when the botany, maternal instinct, and Hippocratic Oath questions passed by. Let's be honest about these quizzes. If you're enough of a nerd to bother taking a Star Trek quiz in the first place (hands up Torch and Gotthammer, right up there with mine) then you're also enough of a nerd to know which questions highlight which character. I've ended up either as an Elf or married to one in every single Lord of the Rings quiz I've ever taken. And let's be honest about that, too. Despite my delusions of Elven grandeur, I'm not particularly Elvish in nature. I'm more... Orcish? Or perhaps I'll allow for Shieldmaiden of Rohan-ish. But damn I know how Elves think. So if you want to be more than a Redshirt, Torch (and I know you are), then re-take the quiz and channel your inner Kirk. You too can make out with heaps of pretty women and handle weapons with flair.

During a period of radio silence the vampirenomad embarked on a business trip, attended an orchard wedding, was interviewed for Japanese TV, and underwent more medical exams than are holy for the sake of immigration. Valentine's traditions, heretofore avoided like the Bubonic Plague that they are for further to two decades, were acknowledged with some kindness, and love did actually conquer all.

Many believed that The Challenge had been abandoned during this period of introspective medical analysis and nomadic wandering, however the undead have long memories. The vampirenomad has granted a time extension to the combined forces of blu, Torch, and Rustyangel as they have deliciously offered the promise of Crypt splendour and for that the vampirenomad can pretend to be a patient being.

Out of sheer idle curiosity the vampirenomad wonders what the Japanese word for "vampire" might be. The Elvish equivalent would be "agariel". Daughter of blood.
