we’re terribly sorry, but you can’t put your disobedient child in the stowaway luggage, you’re just going to have to carry on your wayward son

Tag! You’re it!

I got tagged by the ever wonderful adorablyunhinged, so here we go :)

1. What is the first thing you remember wanting to be when you were older?

Train driver, hands down. Like, proper steam trains like they had at Didcot - I was just hopelessly in love with them.

2.What is your current favourite ship? (a battleship? Dramione? Johnlock? A longship? A Dreadnought? Or maybe you have both a favourite human ship and a real ship!?)

The SHIELD helicarriers. Weapons of mass destruction they may have been, but they were still SO DAMN COOL! The amount of skill & expertise that must have gone into making them is phenomenal, and honestly, I got more choked up watching them crash than I did over the stuff what was supposed to be all emotional.

Also Fitzsimmons.

3. What is your MBTI type? Do you agree? Do you like being that type?

Um, not sure. I think it’s INFJ? Maybe? I dunno, I guess that’s fair enough, but I don’t know if an interwebs personality test can tell you what type of person someone is.

4. What is your favourite thing that other people do for you?

Complement me on something I’m proud of, be it something I’ve cooked, or a piece of academic work, or just anything really.

5. What book are you currently reading? Or if not currently then last read?

I’m currently between books - just finished re-reading ASoIaF, and am not sure what to go for next. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

6. What are you first and middle names?

Toby Jonathon. Thus my URL - tobsj.

7. Who in your life, not counting parents, have made the biggest impact on you?

My teachers. Specifically those I had at A-level, who gave me the help and encouragement to get into universtiy.

8. Put your music player on shuffle and write the first 10 songs! 

Here goes nothing…

1) You’re Beautiful - Jame Blunt

2) Hot n’ Cold - The Baseballs (If you haven’t heard this, find it on youtube - it’s fantastic!)

3) The Road Goes On - from the LOTR musical.

4) Mine - Glee cover

5) My Immortal - Evanescence

6) Awake and Alive - Skillet

7) White Horse - Taylor Swift

8) Twenty Seven Million - Matt Redman, LZ7

9) I Want You Back - Glee cover

10) Talk You Down - The Script

9. If you could have literally anything as a pet, what would it be?

A miniature dragon - like, 10cm long or so. Alternatively a full size dragon would also be very very cool!

10. Which Avenger do you have the biggest crush on?

I’ve got a complete man-crush on Tony Stark - mostly on grounds of he’s no physical powerhouse, but he’s got a good set of grey cells to him. I can sympathise. Plus he’s a snarky little jackass.

11. What are your 5 favourite things about yourself?

1) I’m smart.

2) I’m a half-decent cook.

3) I’ve almost got this “counting to 5” thing sorted.

4) Wait…

5) Dammit.

My 11 questions!

5. What about for a year?

6. What do you want to be remembered for?

7. Who was your first celebrity crush?

8. What’s your dream date?

9. If you could have any superpower, what would it be? And no stealing other people’s powers.

11. What is the worst joke you know?
