Well, tagged me, and I couldn't say no to this old favourite...
1. What is your name:
Lorraine Devon Marshall. Call me Lori.
2. Do you know why you were named that?
My dad liked the name Lori, my mom didn't - it was a compromise, and since she fucked off when I was a kid, I've been Lori since I was five; on school registers, I think it's the name I'm registered with the Marines under - everything. And my grandma's name was Devon.
3. Are you single or taken?
Single; kinda wanting to find someone again; kinda still not over my last...y'know, I don't really wanna talk about this any more.
4. Have any abilities or powers?
5. Stop being a Mary sue!
What the hell is that?
6. What's your eye colour?
7. How about hair colour?
It's sort of strawberry blonde, but I bleach the shit out of it
8. Have you any family members?
I have my mom, Deborah, who I haven't spoken to in years - she lives in Hollywood Hills and is married to a billionaire forty years her junior, and here I am, unemployed and living in a fucking dump...what? Bitter? Me? No fucking chance. On a cheerier, less bitchy note, I speak to my dad, Mitch, a lot more; he lives in upstate Illinois, which is basically Wisconsin, and I'm in Oklahoma City, so I haven't seen him face-to-face for ages (he doesn't drive; I can't drive for shit and also can't afford it; I'm afraid of flying, and I'd also die of embarrassment at both having him stay in my apartment because it's such a fucking shithole, and asking him to get a hotel because my apartment is such a fucking shithole) but we Skype and call each other a lot, and he's always been there for me. Like, flying to Afghanistan right bang smack in the middle of the fucking war because your daughter's been shot is the ultimate fucking dedication. I can't thank him enough for everything that he's done.
9. Oh? How about pets?
Nah. Complex doesn't allow animals. Genuinely, the guy who lives next door to me legit thinks he's Jesus - he's literally pissed the word 'DYKE' onto my door because apparently I'm going to hell for who I fall in love with, regularly tells me that I'm paralysed and my fiancee was killed because we're both sinners, and shoves Westboro Baptist Church propaganda through my mail slot on a daily basis - and that's allowed, but I'm not allowed to get a fucking service dog. Jesus fucking Christ am I proud to be American. I've called the cops on him at least seven times, but apparently it's legal on grounds of 'religious freedom'. Dude, I thought homophobia was a hate crime? And even so, urinating on my property? Ozzy Osbourne got done for that, why not this asshole?
10. That's cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don't like.
I hate my neighbours (both Jesus guy, and the three prostitutes on the other side of me that I can hear having obnoxiously loud sex at four in the morning. Every. Fucking. Day.) Also, people who think that women don't belong in the Forces. I served for nine years with men smaller in mind and larger in body than I was, I was more likely to be sexually assaulted by any one of those men than I was to be killed by enemy fire, I spent half my life trying to prove myself to those assholes, and in the end, it was me who carried half of them off of the battlefield when shit hit the fan. So don't you dare say a fucking word against me, or what I've done for my country.
11. Do you have any activities/hobbies that you like to do?
I like to work out, and...okay, that and wallow in self-pity at home is about all I do. I also have that 'support group; thing, but I only go for Nora, Dan, and the free Krispy Kremes.
12. Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before?
I was in the Marines; the fuck do you think?
13. Ever... killed anyone before?
Yep, four people I think, and I regret every one of 'em. However, to all the fuckheads that come out with bullcrap like this i46.tinypic.com/2eald3a.jpg amd cdn.timesofisrael.com/uploads/… - there were six women in my barracks, and not a single fuckin' one of 'em EVER harmed a kid. However, half the men I knew thought with their triggers, and asked questions later; I know a guy who blew away a fucking school bus of teenagers based on a suspicion; in my mind, he's no better than those kids fron Columbine of Virginia Tech. It is a fact that military ladies have killed children - but don't pretend that any of your 'heroes' from Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan in the days before I couldn't fight never did. Now go fuck yourself.
14. What kind of animal are you?
I'm a fucking moose. Happy now?
Me; She's human
15. Name your worst habits.
Calling people out for being assholes, and overthinking things. The last one hurts me more than it does anyone else.
16. Do you look up to anyone at all?
17. Are you gay, straight or bisexual?
I'm a lesbian.
18. Do you go to school?
No, I'm an adult. I graduated as a valedictorian, and went straight into a law degree, which I then dorpped out of three years later. Worked a few shitty jobs for a while - like, stuff like diners and 7-11 - and eventually joined the Marines with a little help from my dad persuading me.
19. Ever want to marry and have kids one day?
Yes and no: I want to get married, but at the same time, I don't. It'd be too bittersweet. As for kids...I personally can't because the same shot that broke my back ruptured my uterus, so it's sort of impossible. Also, children are kinda annoying.
20. Do you have fangirls/fanboys?
I think I'd best ask the audience on this one...
21. What are you most afraid of?
I have a list, actually.
22. What do you usually wear?
A t-shirt or tank top; jacket; jeans or camo pants; DMs, combat boots, or Litas. It's the one advantage of the whole 'can't walk' thing - I get the advantage of looking fucking amazing in heels, they last me forever because I don't wear the tread down, and my feet aren't killing me by the time the day's out
23. What's one food that tempts you?
Any spicy food. I'm a bit of a freak for stuff like Thai and Indian.
24. Am I annoying you?
Maybe a little
25. Well, it's still not over!
26. What class are you (low class, middle class, high class)?
Probably lower. Like, I'm not exactly homeless, but I could be waaaay better off
27. How many friends do you have?
Several people from the support group, Nora obviously, and one or two gals from the Marines that I stay in sort-of contact with.
28. What are your thoughts on pie?
29. Favorite drink?
I don't drink alcohol...probably Dr Pepper
30. What's your favorite place?
My family home back in Illinois...waaay more happy memories than I have anywhere else. I'd love to move back out with my dad, but I'm terrified of being a burden.
31. Are you interested in anyone~?
32. That was a stupid question.
No fucking shit
33. Would you rather swim in a lake or an ocean?
I'd sooner swim in a lake, because I'm a tad agoraphobic, and a lake sounds more enclosed.
34. What's your type?
Well, I've had two girlfriends in my life; one of them was Korean, buff as fuck, and in every other sense very feminine and girly; the other was basically a man. SO probably one of the two.
35. Any fetishes?
Not really. The whole 'don't ask, don't tell' thing was still a thing when I was in the forces, so any sex, I had to be quiet both about and during, so not much room for creativity.
36. Camping or indoors?
