|What Fantasy Archetype Are you?|
You are the prestigous Mentor! You're akin to Gandalf (Lord of The Rings), Merlin (ARthurian Legend), Obi Wan Kenobi (Star Wars), Aslan (Narnia), Door (Neverwhere), Dumbledore (Harry Potter) and Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander (Wizard's First Rule). You are wise and knowing, and know that there is not much time left for the Unlikely Hero to defeat The Totally Wicked Villain. Only you know the true motives and past of The Villain, so it's up to you to teach the Unlikely Hero all he has to know. Be careful as you'll invariably regret not telling The Unlikely Hero things sooner rather than later. You like teaching and often care very much for others.

A player of this game writes a post, listing "5 Guilty Pleasures" of theirs, and then tags five more people to play as well.
- My queensized heated bed. It's exactly the right firmness. It's got an electric mattress pad, unbleashed long fiber cotton sheets, a down comforter, two handmade quilts, and ususally a cat or two. Bliss.
- My long swirly duster coat. Actually, the whole ensemble. The hat, the dark shades, the black duster longcoat, the black pocket jacket, black shirt, black levis, black boots, black belt. Even my underwear is black. It all swirls and sways around me, and the weight of it all on my shoulders is reassuring.
- This entry is censored because my mom and sisters read this journal.
- This entry is also censored because my mom and sisters read this journal.
- Gerber Baby Oatmeal. Weird but true. It was my original comfort food. When I was at least 3, and probably before, my mom would make it exactly the right thickness, and sprinkle colored sprinkles on top of it. I keep a box of it in my cupboard (and a tube of said sprinkles), and every month or so, I make a bowlful.
