The Basics

Name/Nickname: Ciara

Age: 20 *weep*

Location: Dublin, Ireland

Sex: Yes Please! Female.

Cross-Gender Votes? Absolutely, not picky.

First Impressions

What are your hobbies? writing, photography, music (singing, guitar, writing), literature, fashion, photography, adventures, dressing up, making and writing films, academia, sarcasm

What was/is your favorite subject in school? english and history. probably mostly english, since literture has always been my passion and my forte, but history was wonderous too. i love russian, second world war history particularly, but anything like that is fascinating to me.

What is your favorite color? orange.

What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night? hm, i suppose it wholely depends on my mood. if i'm feeling sociable then friends, whiskey, the beatles and dancing. however, i rarely feel sociable, so i suppose it would just be sitting in reading or something similarly lame. gigs though, small intimate ones, boys, guitars, sweaty fans being euphoric together and not really caring about anything. I suppose a gig would be a nice combination of my sociable side and my introverted one.

What five things could you not live without? my computer, my father, my ipod, my book collection and copious amounts of tea.

Under That Sleek Exterior

Who is your role-model and why? i'm going so say Oskar Schindler. Odd, right? I like historical characters anyway, but the reason I love Schindler so much is because he's the archetypal flawed hero. I love those people who have vices, the flawed ones and in fact somewhat severely so, but those people who say 'fuck it' and do the right thing anyway. because no one is bloody gandhi, you know? we're all pretty bad most of the time, and it takes a lot to know that about yourself and do something amazing anyway. it's like people are far from perfect and most of the time this seems like a shit place to be, but every so often, say every fifty years, someone like him comes along. i suppose he's my role model because i can be a shit sometimes too, probably too often, but i'd like to believe that i know when to do the right thing.

Who is your best friend? Why are they closer to you then anyone else? my best friend is a girl called niamh and we've been friends since we were thirteen. we met because we were both severely uncool (i was in my cock rock phase) and no one else wanted to talk to us. we became a pretty awesome pair, i like to think. she's awesome because she's my opposite. i'm a narcissistic fool and she's the sweetest person ever. she's a social worker and i'm a penniless artyfarty student. the only person i'm closer to, i'd wager, is my father to whom i can communicate without words.

What is your relationship status? If you're in a relationship, tell us a bit about it. i'm single. i don't really... with the risk of sounding EXTRAORDINARILY cliche, i don't do relationships. suppose i've never met anyone i'd give up my independence for. maybe one day, but at the moment i'm enjoying the single life.

What is your favorite thing to wear and why? ooh great question. i recently bought these shoes. they clip clop when i walk on the kitchen tiles and they make me feel very Dickensian - a hobby of mine, being Dickensian - and quite schoolboyish - another hobby, don't ask.

Who in your family are you closest to? my dad, as i said, hes like my favourite person in the world. he's anti-social and remarkably intelligent and one of the only people who understands that i'm the kind of person that doesn't like to talk to much about how i'm feeling. all the same, he seems to perpetually understand exactly how i feel. my mom left him/us last year and despite the fact that him being hurt like that broke my heart, i think its made us closer.

Tough Choices

In a difficult situation, would you choose your friends or your family? thats impossible to answer without context. i'd like to think i'd choose my family but i really don't know. i feel like my family, despite us being circumstantially thrown together, are my closest friends. my brothers and my dad have always been there for me.

Your boy/girlfriend or your best friend? ha, my best friend. unless the best friend did something shit, then i'd choose whoever i thought was right. i'd have to choose who i agreed with, if there was an argument. mostly because i'm stubborn and i can't really get down with someone who's not on the same page as me.

Your mom or your dad? my dad, always.

Your happiness or someone else's? my own.

Your life or someone else's? oh god. i don't think i could ever let someone else die. i'm alarmingly self-centred, but a lot of the time i don't hold a huge value on my own life.

About The Books

Who is your favorite Gossip Girl character and why? i'd say it's a toss up between Blair, Chuck and Rufus. I love all three for different reasons. Blair because she manages to be hard ass and a romantic, which i love in a person. i think it's a balance you have to strike. Chuck because he's funny, smart and gorgeous and he looks out for himself, but like schindler (oh no she didn't!) he knows when to step up to the plate. i like rufus for reasons beyond me. he's just sweet, and i like awesome daddies.

Who is your least favorite character and why? probably serena, she just bugs me. there's just not an awful lot to her. i'm not huge on jenny either, she's just such a little scene whore. sometimes nate annoys me too.

Which of the current eleven books is your favorite and why? That's really tough. I think they're like what my Dad says about The Lord of the Rings; you can't really seperate them, because they're all the one thing really. It's like picking your favourite chapter of something. Which is a cop out, I'm sure :)

If you could date any of the characters, who would it be and why? i think chuck. he's gorgeous as i said, but he's also similar to me, and i'm narcissistic in relationships. i don't really do the overbearing thing.

If you lived in the Gossip Girl world, who would you choose to make your best friend and why? blair. she's harsh, but she always has your back.

(Optional) Post 1-5 pictures of yourself. Please make them a reasonable size.

Thank you!
