Basics

Name: Meri (it's not my real name, but it's the name I go by more often)
Age: 25
Gender: Female
Location: Pennsylvania
Would you like to be rated as a male, female, or does it not matter?: It really doesn't matter; I've always been rather androgynous, so either would be fine.

Random Stuff!

Favorite Zelda character, and why: This is a hard one because I like so many! I really like Medli and Saria, but my favorite has to be Sheik- I love the fact that Zelda disguises herself to help Link out, and it's always fun to pass yourself off as a boy. ;)
Least Favorite, and why: I'm not a fan of villain characters, but I also really don't like Ilia. She's just way too ... well, meek. I've never been a fan of meek characters.
Favorite area of any game?: Any part where I get to do side quests. I'm probably the only Legend of Zelda fan who prefers them to fighting in temples (my fiancé makes fun of me because I often pass the controller on to him when I have to fight a boss).

Personality-wise

Describe your personality as vividly as possible: I'm very intelligent and love learning, but that love is mostly reserved for subjects that I enjoy- namely, literature, history, and language (I had the reading comprehension of a college student by the time I was about 12). My dream is to become a professor of early British literature, and at the moment I'm teaching myself Old English.
I have the drive and determination to finish whatever is in front of me, no matter how tedious, but on the downside of this, I can only ever focus on one thing at a time; if you tell me something while I'm working, I won't hear you or remember what you said.
I'm very creative- besides literature, art is my life and I'm pretty much a "starving artist"- I spend what little money I'm able to make off my art on buying more art supplies, and I'm constantly teaching myself new forms of art. Honestly, I'm just always learning.
I'm also helpful and dependable; if someone is in trouble or needs help, I'm the one to go to. I never judge, and I will do whatever I can to help someone out. However, I'm not overly friendly; I'm civil to everyone, but I only ever open up to those those I'm close to and who I feel I can trust. I'm just very much a loner and need my own space.
Strong Points: intelligent, creative, determined, dependable, extremely accepting, helpful, competent, honorable
Weak Points: cynical, tendency to be a loner, only able to concentrate on one thing at a time, I always tell the truth, even if it may hurt someone's feelings, because I feel that is better than lying
What are some of the most important qualities a person should have?: People should be accepting of everyone, not just those who are most like them, as well as being honest, intelligent, helpful, and friendly. However, being the cynic I am, I rarely find this to be the case.
Introverted or Extroverted?: Depends on the situation- I can be extroverted when it's needed, but usually I'm introverted and keep to myself.
Dominant or Submissive?: Dominant, definitely.
Logical or Intuitive?: Logical.

Likes: Art, literature, video games, fantasy, going to the renaissance faire, dressing in costume (I love getting to be someone else!), animals (especially cats), the paranormal (I want to start ghost hunting next year), Celtic rock music
Dislikes/Pet Peeves: People who are narrow-minded, stupid, or mean, people who hurt animals, math (I have dyscalculia, so numbers and I don't get along)
Hobbies: Dungeons and Dragons, video games, art (I crochet, spin yarn, paint, sew, draw, make chainmaille and jewelry, sculpt, etc), gardening (I love playing in the dirt!), reading

Questions

If someone hurt you, would you seek revenge?: No. That would make me no better than the person who hurt me. However, I'm not sure if I'd be able to hold back if someone close to me was the victim. I wouldn't physically hurt anyone, but I'd definitely defend my friend with words.
Which fighting technique would you most like to have: sword fighting, magic usage, or other (explain!)?: I'd prefer to fight from a distance (I'm not all that strong, I'm rather small, and I love bows), but in a tight spot I would defend myself (likely with a dagger), probably much like a cornered cat.
If you found a great amount of money in the middle of nowhere; no witnesses in sight, what would you do?: I'd take it to the police. Yeah, I'd hope for a reward, but maybe the person who lost it really needs the money; I certainly wouldn't want to take that away from them!
Would you risk your life to save someone you loved?: Definitely. I'm not usually one for taking risks, but if someone I loved was in danger, I know I wouldn't hesitate to help them no matter what could happen to me.
What do you want out of life? A career that I'm happy in and enjoy doing, the love of those closest to me, and just being able to enjoy life.

Pictures (Optional):
This is my most recent picture:

I usually have long blond hair, but I decided to go with my natural hair color for a while.

I know this community is rather empty lately, so I hope it picks up! I'll try to get my fiancé to join so he can help rate people.

Late rating is late, but I figured it would be better than nothing... >>;

I thought you seemed a lot like Tetra . You both seem independent, adventuresome, determined, somewhat cynical, willing to stand up for friends, etc. The part about passing as a boy seemed to fit her as well, ha.

I agree, I think you are more like Tetra. I was leaning towards Zelda at one point because of your love for learning and the fact that you may be somewhat aloof, but Tetra fits the bill better: You seem more determined and driven (:
