It has been decided to close muses_at_large.
Thank you to all who participated. You are a talented and amazing group of writers, and I feel privileged to have been able to offer you a forum for as long as it lasted.

Earth.

Okay, and maybe a bit of fire.

Although, I have to tell ya, it’s more of a process of elimination than anything else. I can’t be pidgeon holed that easily.

“Water characteristics are known for emotion, psychism, mysticism, intuition.
Known as the “feelers,” the nurturers, the caretakers.” Yeah that is SO not me. No chick-flick moments here.

“Air characteristics are mental processes, language, intellect, reason, human communication and social relationships.” Air would be Sam’s element. This is definitely his area of expertise. Going off to school, making friends, being with people – all Sam type things.

“Earth characteristics include practicality, stability, materialism, realism, and dependablity. They are also known for a deep affinity with nature, and good with dealing with reality and money.” Alright here some are me but others are definitely not. I can be practical and if were talking about hunting then I am definitely stable and dependable – ya have to be. Although I suppose both of those would be debatable in other aspects of my life. I know where to make a quick buck and I know how to make it last, although not through conventionaly means. As for being in tune to nature, again that’s not my gig. And considering that everything I own can fit into my car – materialism is one thing I definitely am not.

“Fire characteristics consist of passion, energy, impulse, enthusiasm, inspiration, idealism, faith. Fire signs are the leaders providing much needed inspiration, motivation and creative energy. Can be enthusiastic and idealistic, and could also be insecure, egocentric and impractical.” Whether I want to be or not, when it comes to hunting I have the experience so I tend to fall into the leadership role – something that Sam just doesn’t seem to understand. And, although I would never admit it, I know I struggle with being insecure and egocentric. The one is more of a defense for the other. As for the rest of the stuff mentioned, I don't think so.

Water.

Why?

I don’t know. To be honest I just picked one at random. Water seemed to be as good a choice as any. It’s got that calming and relaxing thing going for it. And after a stressful day, I’ve always found going out on one of the balconies and watching the water surrounding Atlantis to be very soothing and therapeutic. Especially on the occasions Elizabeth joins me.

Oh, that’s not the characterizations you were talking about.

Alright, in that case, I would have to go with air.

Again with the why...

Well, if I told you then I would have to kill you.

One of the first things you learn in the air force is that you should never over play your assets. Letting those around you know how smart you may be for example, very rarely works in your favor. Unless you’re a scientist, they seem to think it’s some sort of contest – who the smartest is, especially one named Rodney McKay. But let’s just say that I’ve always been a people person and I come up with my fair share of ideas. And, I suppose on occasion, I may ignore the proper chain of command all together and do my own thing – but never without good reason.

Describe your ideal lover.
Someone who takes me as I am, and not what they want to shape. Someone I trust implicitly. Someone who instictively knows when I need comfort, or distance. Someone who will hold my hand, and throw the curveball comment to stop me in my tracks and make me smile.

Someone who will give me the look that they know, they understand throughly. Someone who will stand by me no matter what choices or decisions I make. Someone who will not say 'I told you so' when I mess up.

Someone who will treat me gentle when I'm unnerved, make me calm, and someone who will bounce of me when I'm unnerved, give to me the go ahead for ire when needed. Someone who knows the difference of my mood between the two.

Someone who will lift me up, and someone who can ground me. Someone who will whirl me away with them on a beach, a back seat, or a carpet if they so wish.

Pectorals and a nice ass wouldn't go amiss either.

Forgive me while I pass out from laughing so hard.
That's better.

I wasn't Awake during the wars of the 20th century.Those were--or mostly were--human affairs. The Powers, either light or dark, didn't act directly.These days that's much less common. The humans have begun to grow into some of their own capabilities.
I fight to live, but also 'live to fight'. The four of us need challenges. A weapon
that stays sheathed has little purpose or value.
I never wanted to stay safely off the front lines. My brother outstrips me with a sword, and our sister is skilled too. We all use the abilities that were the most natural to us.
I fight hand to hand or with whatever is available. The one rule? Stay alive. For a long time,that was the only concern. Though it's not as simplistic as it might sound.
Staying alive also meant not provoking anger or disappointment from our superiors.
To find a way to succeed. Failure was rarely tolerated more than once.

Conversations or meetings could be a form of battle. Wits, clever words to hide the
truth, one person's strength of will against another's power. A single slip before
the princes of Gehenna, and they would all attack.
Knives cut and bleed raw, but they heal more easily. No melee has ever left me with
that vile aftertaste in my memories. Or centuries' worth of nightmares.

Of course,neither did I tolerate it in others.
I used to punish humans or mages who had offended me by 'inviting' them to work out against myself or my sister. Of course it was a death sentence.
If I didn't enjoy the end of a fight,too, I would have been more than 'odd'.

Unfaithful
If you discovered that your significant other/partner/spouse had been unfaithful, how would you react?

That depends a great deal on the definition of ‘unfaithful’.

In most cases I would be hurt. I’ve been accused of being cold and unfeeling from time to time, but although I may be a machine, I am not an automaton. Should my partner choose to be with someone else, I wouldn’t object as objection in such cases is usually futile and due to my history and purpose, I do not trust lightly. It takes time and the reassurance of familiarity. Consequently, if that trust is broken it can rarely be repaired to its former solidity.

If my romantic trust was betrayed, I would seek an explanation. Circumstances certainly merit consideration, however, communication is of utmost importance in any relationship, romantic or no, and to break that trust is what I would see as the crime.

If my professional trust was betrayed, recompense may be required.

And, in either case, I have a very long memory.
