Personally, I'm fine with just being "a Grantaire" regardless of whether it's a legit job or not (I mean, it is a les mis quiz)

For the occupation, I'd say revolutionary (if it qualifies as an occupation)

For the scene one, I have no clue how to determine it. :oops:

I say a Grantaire. Oooh, or with the sadness and reading, an author or a poet, maybe?

What do you do in your spare time? Read a lot, doodle, write a little, hang around on the internet (when I'm in England, add: hit things with swords, punch things, band practice, baking)
What type of things do you usually write? The kind with too many commas, adjectives, and slightly awkward metaphors.
What is your occupation, currently? Student/HR intern
What do people love about you? That I volunteer to do the jobs no-one else wants to, I try to make myself useful to everyone, I'm good at problem-solving, and apparently I give good advice.
What do people hate about you? I'm absent-minded and easily distracted, I do too many things and don't commit properly to half of them, and I show affection by teasing and sarcasm which sometimes upsets people when I misjudge it. I also compulsively pick holes in people's arguments, I'm really bad at volume control, and I ramble.
What is most noticeable about you? I have bright red hair and I like fancy waistcoats.
Do you write songs? No. Despite the fact that I promised to write a three-song cycle about libraries at some point...
Can you write poetry at all? I guess? I used to write a lot, but I don't think it was any good.
What is most valuable in life? Knowing who you are and living it.
What do you think of symbolism? It's beautiful, useful, and fascinating, but it can be dangerous if you conflate it too much with reality.
Are you involved in theater? Very amateur theatre.
In politics? Yes, but I'd like to be more so, and should do a better job of keeping up to speed.
Which Les Mis character do you most identify with, why? I'd like to just say Combeferre, because I very much identify with his philosophy and outlook, but in practice there's also a bit of Prouvaire in there, and more than a little Bahorel, and I often catch myself sliding towards Grantaire.

So Cynic's occupation is the "Grantaire like Author" 8)

Mine just needs one more vote

@Morgan: Heyyy, welcome :D That is actually a theme application- if you would like a regular character stamp fill out the survey on page 6. Looks like you may be a Bahorel/Combeferre, from what I see... 8) Which is a very nice mixture.

For your occupation, I'm going with politician, Emjolras. I have no clue for scene, sorry. I thought about it a bit and am just drawing a blank. There are too many!

What do you enjoy doing?

Satanic rituals. Oh, and I'm fond of theatre, tea, reading and writing, but mostly satanic rituals. :P

What are your talents?

Uh... Breathing? Can I get back to you on that?

How much does money matter to you?

Meh. As long as I've got enough to live, I don't care all that much. Oh, and Internet connection would be nice, but I can just steal Starbucks'. Not that I... do that.

What dangers are there in your occupation?

I'm a student, so... failing? Falling down the stairs? Getting so annoyed with everyone that your voice becomes permanently and irrevocably sarcastic? I don't know.

What are you now?

A student.

What do you want to do someday?

An actress, stage manager, director, writer or maybe an editor.

What type of people do you hang out with?

I like people with humour, and I like people who really care about things. People who don't judge you and people who care about you. People that you have to prove yourself to. People that keep you in check but know when to lay off. I hang out with some people I'm not all that fond of, though, for the sake of having friends. But I like a handful of them a lot.

Do you work to work, or work because you enjoy it?

I'm legally obligated to attend school. I understand it's necessary. That doesn't make me not want to commit murder, though.

What do you think would be the ideal job?

See "what do you want to do someday?"

Hobbies?

See the first question.

Work ethic?

Weird. I'm insanely ambitious, I want a lot of stuff, but I'm too afraid of failure to ever really let myself try. I won't get singing lessons or take dance or acting lessons because I'm too afraid I won't be any good, even with training, and I won't really try on essays or work because I'm afraid I still won't do well. So, I have a good work ethic somewhere deep inside of me. And I do okay, I guess, my parents say I get good marks, but I'm probably capable of better. But this might be all I'm capable of. I just poured my heart out on a "which occupation are you" quiz.

working with others?

Which others?

dream job?

See "what do you want to do someday?"

I got that it wasn't the main character one, but I couldn't figure out where that one was so I thought I'd mess around with the themed things instead (guess who's bored today... :D) Thanks for the pointer...is this the one you meant?

Name: Morgan
Age: 22

Favorite Country/State: Uh, either France or Scotland. Maybe?
MBTI or other personality type: INFP
Good traits: See the "what people love about you" in the above quiz. Plus, reasonably intelligent, loyal, adaptable.
Bad traits: Again, see "what people hate" in the other quiz.
Talents: Bullshitting. (No, seriously, it's an important skill, consisting of learning just enough about something to sound like you know what you're talking about, and then using lots of words to cover up what you don't know). Uh, actual respectable talents? Drawing, I guess.
Hobbies: Reading, drawing, hitting things, geeking out on the internet.
Are you studious or playful?: Some of both. But studying can be play!
Are you stubborn or a pushover?: Depends. There are a few issues I have very strong feelings on and I will not be moved, but unless it's one of those things, I'm usually willing to bow to other people's wishes.
Lead or follow: I'm a lieutenant :lol: I don't like being totally in charge, but I like to be second-in-command? Not responsible for the big ideas, but for getting everyone else into line and actually getting the leader's ideas into practice.
Optimist or Pessimist: optimistic at the core, but there's an overlay of cynicism over that, and then a shallower surface optimisim...generally I'm conflicted but ultimately hopeful.
Silly or Serious: Fundamentally serious, with some very, very silly moments.
Introvert or Extrovert: Introvert
Compromise or fight for lost cause?: Situational. In most major issues I have "what I actually want" and "the minimum that I'll accept", and while I'll fight pretty hard for the former, if it's really a lost cause, I'll compromise as long as it doesn't slip down past the latter line. That line I'll go down fighting at.

What would you do if you are eating fries and saw a poor person (obviously real, not a faker) ask you for a little bit of food? Give them the rest of the box.
What would you do if you needed more money?
Depending on the amount and urgency:
- Stop eating lunch
- Try and find a job
- Grovelling phonecall to mother
How do you handle crises?
Take deep breath, come up with patch-job fix, implement, go sit in a corner and cry for a bit, come back and work on long-term solution.
What is your dream? To have a clear idea of exactly what I want to change in the world and how to go about it. And, secondarily, to live in my own house where I can paint on the walls and pile books everywhere and keep big shaggy dogs.
If you were in the middle of a battle and things were looking hopeless, what would you do:
How do you respond to being unjustly treated? Fume silently and imagine punching the perpetrator in the face. Then later, either bitch about it in private, go to the gym and beat the shit out of a punching bag, try and find a way to complain/redress the situation, or any combination of the above.
Do you think unjust laws should be repealed or upheld? Repealed, duh.
Would you feel comfortable voicing an unpopular opinion? Depends how important it was to me.
Are you in love? Yes.
Thoughts on morality? The most important thing is to be kind. The difficult part is working out what that entails in a broader sense, and what actually will create the greatest amount of happiness for the greatest number of people, but that's many essays and not a short quiz answer.
Freedom or safety? Freedom.
What moral is the most valuable to have? Compassion.
Lyrics you relate to? I know there are a bunch but I'm drawing a blank :(
When and how did you become disappointed? In minor personal ways, more regularly than is worth recounting. In an overall total disillusionment way, not yet. In a major ideological way:
1: 2009, elderly Quakers are apparently about as hasty as your average Ent
2: 2010/11, the difficulty of finding an effective way of getting the government to listen to people, and the equal intransingency of university authorities.
If something goes wrong would you accept it or change it? Depends on what it is exactly - accept and move on if it's not something major or I'm the only one it affects, try and change it if it's a wider issue.

Strengths:

I can write relatively well, I think I can act kind of well, apparently I'm sort of charming? Sometimes?

Weaknesses:

Overly sensitive. Definitely. Um, not great at talking to people. I don't really like meeting new people, and I take things way too personally.

How do people see you?

Depends on the person. But somewhat witty, sarcastic, kind and odd, I think?

What do you hate?

Stupidity, ignorance, needless cruelty, people who think that we live in a vacuum.

What would you do if you were in the National Assembly and the king tried to disband y'all?

Well, what I like to think I'd do is go, "screw the king" and continue with my Assembly. I mean, the people must be heard, right?

What do you think of monarchy?

No.

Should we compromise with the king, or uproot it all?

Depends on the compromise. Like, at the very least the people are entitled to some rights, none of which they had under the monarchy. But I wouldn't mind a system where there was both a monarchy and an elected government who worked together well, I guess.

Do you favor gradual or sudden change?

Gradual.

how intimidating are you?

I'm 5"3 and I trip over my own feet. What do you think?

What type of people should be sent to the guillotine?

Nobody.

How much of a leader are you?

Slightly leader-ish, I guess. More of a sidekick, though.

Do people love you?

Um... My mom?

What are your talents?

Writing, acting. I think that might be it.

What are your hobbies?

Writing, acting, reading, dancing around like a maniac.

Who do you admire?

From the Revolution? Or just in general? 'Cause Terry Fox, my parents, my friends, you guys.

What is your love life like?

Non-existant.

What impression do you leave?

I dunno.
