  • form a team of "us against them" with a best friend or parent

    Your Score: Maeve


    Indeed, you are 79% erudite, 91% sensual, 87% martial, and 54% saturnine.




    Maeve was once thought of as a historical queen but is now considered part of the Celtic mythology. She is usually depicted as either a winged sprite, a beautiful elf, or a human woman dressed in only the finest robes.


    She was said to carry two tree-dwelling creatures on either of her shoulders; the squirrel and the raven, resembling her closeness to nature and mysticism. She also frequented the area which was said to hold the entrance to the Otherworld, which is now called the Cave of the Cats.


    Maeve is known for an insatiable sexual appetite and boasting openly of sleeping with thirty men in one day. Once she meets the hero Fergus Mac Roich, 'Son of Great Horse' who himself has a sexual appetite large enough to satisfy her, the tale says that 'She used to know thirty men every day or go with Fergus once.' So that�s good for her. :3



    She is most famous as a protagonist in the story of the "Cattle Raid of Cooley", which tells of another dispute between her and her husband, the Connaught chieftain Ailill, with whom she would constantly quarrel.

    The Playstation
    Random Gentle Sex Master (RGSMf)

        Easy to turn on. Hard to beat. You are The Playstation.

        You're a nice girl, and you have lots of sex. It's therefore highly likely that you're attractive, and you're certainly outgoing & friendly. Plus, this healthy physical attitude of yours indicates deeper emotional well-being and stability. Unheard of. When girls dare to dream, they dream of you.

        You don't get attached too easily, and, to wit, you're not necessarily looking for something long-term right now. That's a bigger asset than you know. Though, physically speaking, you're open to anything, you're keeping your emotional side well-protected. This means there won't be a lot of wreckage to clean up whenever you decide to settle down.

    Your exact opposite:
    The Priss

    Deliberate Brutal Love Dreamer
        In the meantime, the women you share yourself with actually respect you. Like them, you enjoy sex for its own sake and don't need any other validation for pleasure than pleasure itself. Hopefully, you have the good sense to blow off anyone who thinks less of you for that. Usually, this is the part of the description where we offer some life-correcting advice, but honestly, we can't think of anything about you we'd change. Keep on fucking, partner.


    ALWAYS AVOID: The Priss

    CONSIDER: Anyone else

    You scored as Dragon. Dragon: Now talk about a legend. These magnificent creatures are of many species. Some can be as large as the Earth itself, while others are as small as a mouse. One image that comes to everyone's mind is the large, fire breathing Dragons that loathed humans and loved to sleep on massive piles of gold. Not all dragons have a bad reputation. Most dragons are very wise, caring, and protective. It would make a person very lucky indeed to meet a dragon. Especially if they walked away untouched. I admire your wisdom, for you are the Ancient Dragon.

    Clarity:
    Going home tomorrow.
    Am happy. Not smitten, but happy.
    Dunno quite what you call when you're not exactly single. Like, I am single, but that's not my line this summer, 'cause I don't want to be involved with anyone and single means looking, at least in my hometown. I'm unavailable. That's the official decision. We'll see how that goes. Once again I have involved myself in something that would be a relationship if it were not for extenuating circumstances. Oh, circumstances.
    I made a 51-song playlist today. Three hours.
    I have my sunscreen.
    When I was at MHC I discovered that I've officially made the Web of Shame. I mean, I knew I had my own mini-web, but I'm on the big one.
    I can't wait to go home and I don't want to at the same time. This'll be interesting. But, good news, we're buying a wireless router. And I'll have a phone. There will be phoning.
    Love to you all. All of you, love.
    Okay, so maybe that wasn't clarity. If anyone wants to know anything specific, comment and I'll play Q&A. Ask anonymously if you want. I had a really weird dream and I'm kinda out of it.
