So here we go, round robin style again...

If you all could have a superpower what would it be and why?

Eir- I already have a superpower. Silly KJ.*shakes his head* I'd say being able to see the future and read people's emotions is not what you'd call normal..
Lulu- *giggles*
Fi- *shakes her head*
Flint- Okay, assuming being able to turn into a fox plus have the ability to light people on fire doesn't count...
Fi- *sighs* I'm the only one here who doesn't already have some sort of power. *scowls* I guess if I had to pick it would be good to be able to tell what people are thinking…*stares at the floor*
Lulu- See, I just want to be invisible or something. Oooh, or I want to be The Hulk. I can just get mad and go-- *claps fists together, throws them over her head and then slams them into her lap* SMASH! *nods* That's what I want.
Eir-*laughs and grins* Lulu smash!
Fi- *laughs* I don't think I've ever seen you mad, Lu.
Lulu- *grins cutely* I hide it very well.
Eir- *glances at Fi and kind of edges away* I think we'd be safer if Lulu had that particular power.... *looks at his sister* Others might destroy what's left of the world when they get irritated.
Flint- *bursts out laughing*
Lumi- *pinches Eir's side and then hugs Fi defensively*. Brutes. *looks at Fi* Don't listen to the little minded men, they're mean.
Fi- *hugs Lu back and glares at her brother then sticks her tongue out at Flint* It's not my fault you two are annoying.
Lulu- *giggles and nods* They're boys. That's what they do.
Eir- *covers his mouth* Lulu, you wound me!
Lumi-*bats her eyes at Eirnin* I never said you annoy me, Wonder Boy...
Eir- *makes sad eyes at Lumi* You called me a brute...and said I'm little minded...
Lumi- *pouts her lower lip at Eir and scampers over and hug-attacks him* That doesn't mean I don't love you anyway. *shoots her big eyes at him and then hops up and kisses his cheek*
Eir- *hugs Lu,blushing* Well, ok then…
Flint- *quirks a brow at them and pokes Fi* Are they dating now?
Fi- *bats Flint's hand away when he pokes her,hoping he doesn’t figure out she’s ticklish then shrugs at him* No idea.
Flint- *smirks but puts his hand back on his lap for now*
Lumi- *sticks her tongue out at Flint* Shut up. *grins at Eir and then goes back to her spot*
Fi- *nudges Flint* What about you, what super power would you want?
Flint-  *looks at Fi and smirks* Well I've already made you uncomfortable with an earlier question so, um... *Shrugs* Maybe invisibility... I could creep around, hear and see things I shouldn't. *winks at Fi*
Lulu- *looks at Eir* Is he being a perv or is it just me?
Fi- *shoves Flint’s shoulder*  Ass.
Flint- I said absolutely nothing wrong." *smiles at Fi*
Eir *nods at Lumi* This is not new, trust me.
Fi-  *shakes her head at Flint* According to you, you never say anything wrong. * blushes*
Lulu- *nods thoughtfully* I take it back. You're not the small minded brute in the room. *squeezes Eir’s arm and gives Flint a weird look*
Eir-  *grins and looks all proud of himself*
Flint- *shakes his head back at Fi* No, I know I say somethings wrong. I'm not perfect. * smirks* What I just said was innocent. You got dirty minded on me.
Fi - *rolls her eyes at Flint, her face still red* I did not.
Eir- *puts his hands up* Ok, you two. Enough. *looks at Lumi* Oblivious.
Lulu-  *giggles* I know.
Flint - You two have zero room to talk.
Eir- *chokes and glares at Flint* Shush, you.
Flint- I will when you will.
Fi- *watches Eir and Flint go back and forth, looking puzzled*
Eir- *shakes his head* Very mature. How old are you, like a thousand and that's the response you give me.
Fi- *looks at Lumi* Do you have any idea what they're going on about?
Lumi- *shakes her head* I don't speak male...
Fi- *looks at Lumi* Thank goodness for that.
Flint- *scowls at Eir* Uh, no. I'm a quarter of that. Your girlfriend, though, she's a cougar.
Eir- *blushes* What do I have to do to get you to shush?
Lumi- *giggles at Fi and then snaps straight up and scowls at Flint* Bad Hellboy!
Flint- *shakes his head* Your sister has been trying to figure that out since I got here.
Fi- *laughs out loud at Flint* That is true.
Eir- *snorts at Flint* Can I wave the white flag? I've had enough sparring...I can kind of see why Fi wants to slug you all the time.
Flint-  *smirks at Fi* If you asked me nicely I would try to be...quiet. *he extends a hand again and tickles at her side, testing her*
Fi- *half grins at Flint* You-quiet? *jerks away from his hand* No tickling *tries to hide that she’s laughing*
Flint- Oh there are ways, love. *beams when Fi laughs and tickles her side then gets whapped in the back of the head with a snowball*
Fi- *laughs when Flint gets hit with the snowball*
Lumi- Flint, we are in the middle of an interview. Please sit your ass back down and tickle Fi later. *smiles sweetly*
Fi- *blushes*
Eir- *covers his mouth so he doesn't laugh*
Flint- *brushes snow out of his hair and scowls at Lumi* Soon as KJ's gone... You're in trouble, Princess.
Fi- *giggles* No she's not.
Eir- *nods*
Lumi- *beams* I'm not afraid of him.
Flint-  *wags a finger at Lumi and ignores the Dolans*
 Fi- *grins at Lu* I haven't been afraid of him since I figured out his other form was an adorably cuddly little fox.
Eir- *snorts*
Flint- *laughs at Fi*
Fi- *blushes when she realizes what she just said*
Lumi- *tilts her head* He's a fox? *fakes a look of shock and mock whispers* He was so tiny, I thought he was a rat...
Eir- *chokes*
Fi- *stays quiet, studying the floor*
Lumi-  *looks at Eir when he chokes and smiles at him* You okay?
Flint-  *glares at the back of Lu's head, reminding himself he can’t light her on fire*

Eir- *nods* Yep, I'm great.

What gave you the backbone you have today?

Eir- *smirks, then puts on his mock-serious face* I'm going to have to say it was dealing with my supremely over-protective older sister. Yep. Or is that just the biggest pain in my life?
Fi- *scowls*
Flint- *shakes head* Like you are any less protective of her. *gives Eir a look* I know she's annoying as hell, believe me, but she really is trying to keep you safe…
Eir- No one is as protective as she is.
Flint- You should have seen me a few years ago. *smirks* I made her look tame.
Fi- *glares at Flint before snapping at Eirnin* I'm very sorry if I promised Dad that I'd keep you safe, demon. I can promise you, you will survive it. *then grumbles in Flint’s direction* I'm not annoying, you ass.
Eir- *puts his hands up, noticing Fi’s glare* I'm kidding, just for the record--kidding, so no glaring at me please. Save that for the mouthy kitsune over there..
Flint- *gapes at Eir* Well I never.
Fi- *ignoring Flint completely, doing her scary-calm thing* To answer KJ’s question,  I think my parents and my Gran are what really helped develop my 'backbone'..
Flint- *chuckles at Fi’s irritation* My baby sister and a friend from the winter court gave me any backbone I may have.
Fi- *muttering under her breath*
Lumi- *looks at Eirnin* He did. *then to Fi* Eirnin and Fi both.
Flint- *coughs*
Lumi- Hellboy, too. *sticks tongue out at him*
Fi- *looks up at Lulu* Lu, you had plenty of backbone before you met us, honey.
Eir- For once, I am going to agree with Fi. You might be sweet, but you’re not a pushover. Don’t sell yourself short, and whatever you do, don’t give him the credit. *gestures to Flint*
Flint- I would make an obscene hand gesture at you, but there may be children watching. *glares at Eir*
Lumi- *giggles, shoving Eir* Dweeb. Just take a compliment, would you, Dolans? Gosh.
Eir- *fakes being offended* I am not a dweeb, Princess. *huffs*
Fi- *giggles*
Lumi- *smiles, makes big-eyes at him* I’m sorry, Wonder Boy..
Flint- *gags* Next question, please.
Fi- *glares at Flint*

What is your favorite flower?

Fi- *grins* I love daisies.
Flint- *files that away for later use*
Eir- I am a boy and therefore do not like flowers. Despite what my cousin, Aodhan, may have told you about my fondness for tulips. Not true.
Lumi- *looks at Eir* So you would be mad at me if I brought you flowers one day?
Flint- *smirks* Why would you be bringing Eir flowers, Lulu?
Lumi- *narrows eyes* Because I like him, you little hellion.
Flint- *starts laughing, tries to smother it with his hand*
Fi- *rolls eyes at Flint*
Eir- *blushes* I could never get mad at you, Lulu.
Lumi- Yes, but if you don’t like flowers… I wouldn’t want you to think I’m trying to sissify you. *sighs sadly*
Fi- *busts out laughing*
Eir- *glares at Fi* Okay, fine, I like flowers. *whispers* Only for you would I admit that, Lu.
Lulu- *swells with pride* Oh. Sorry, KJ. Um… I like white carnations and pink carnations. I think they’re really pretty.
Fi- *grins, then looks at Flint expectantly*
Flint- I am not a boy. I am a full grown man, so, I will openly admit I like roses best. And unlike some people I’m not ashamed of it.
Eir- *scowls* Oh shut up, Twinkly Bottom.
Fi- *chokes back a laugh*
Lumi- *giggles*
Flint- *rolls eyes at Eir* Remind me to smack you later.

What is your favorite ice cream?

Lulu- *cries* Mint chocolate chip! *flushes, looking around nervously* Erm... Sorry.
Eir- Strawberry is the best. Aunt Ruth’s homemade strawberry ice cream. Yum. Do we have any in the freezer? *looks at his sister hopefully*
Fi- *shakes her head* Uh, I don’t think so, Eir. Sorry. *tries not to grin at him* I like just plain vanilla best.
Flint- *sighs sadly* You ask all these naughty questions and expect G-rated answers… *rolls eyes heavenward* “Depends on the day. I will always eat ice cream. I probably like coffee ice cream the best…
Fi- *frowns* Aunt Ruth won’t make coffee ice cream because I’m the only one who wants to try it…
Flint- *looks at her* It’s fantastic. *nudges her arm* I can beg her with you next time she comes over, if you’d like.
Fi- *bites her lip, trying not to grin* That would be very sweet of you. I don’t want to harass her, though… *looks at him, debating* If you ask her first I can chime in, though… So… Yes, please. Thank you. *blushing*
Flint- *smiles at her* Consider it done.
Lumi- *pokes Eir’s side* Aww, look at them being all nice to each other. It’s so cute.
Eir- *shushes her* Don’t spook them, Lulu. We know how quickly things go sideways with these two.
Lumi- Right, yes. True. *nods thoughtfully*
Flint- *ignores them*
Fi- *flushes, glaring at her brother*

What do you miss most from what you see in the ruins of the city?

Fi- Honestly, everything. They say New York was this bustling ball of energy that never stopped. People and cars and animals just everywhere, moving and talking and just living. I would love to have been a part of that, even if it was only for a day. That must have been amazing.
Flint- *shudders a little at what Fi said* I will be honest and say I am the farthest thing from a city boy you can find, so... *blinks slowly* There's nothing I can really say I 'miss', per se...
Fi- *quirks a brow at Flint* Nothing at all? I mean, I love the peace and quiet but just to see it all... *trails off looking embarrassed*
Eir- The cultural aspects, I think. The museums and the restaurants... I would love to have been able to witness some of humanity's growth.
Flint- *shakes his head* Makes me anxious. Being around that many people, it's just… *scrunches nose* Bleh. *nudges Fi* "Besides. Everything I want to see is in this room right now. *winks*
Fi- *grins and blushes* The three of us are all you want to see? *sounds half-surprised and half-teasing*
Flint-smirk at her. "Sure."
Fi- *shakes her head, grinning at Flint and teases* Do you even believe half of what you say?
Flint- I believe everything I say.*smiles at Fi*
Fi- *grins at Flint and laughs* Of course you do.
Lumi- *leans forward with a straight face* Flint, I'm confused. Are you simply saying you only want to see Fi? Or are you referring to the overly tall boy who calls you 'bad' names?
Flint- *grinning at Fi and then chokes* Lumi.
Fi- *blushes bright red*
Eir- *tries to choke back a laugh*
Lumi- *fakes confusion* What?
Flint *covers his face with his hands and starts shaking his head*
Lulu- And for Kj, um, I've never been in a city, so honestly I'd honestly just like to see it... It would be fun to just walk around.
Eir-*smiles at Lumi shyly* I'd love to take a walk around the city with you, Lulu.
Lumi- *looks up at him and beams* Are you still going to take me pillaging?
Eir-  *blushes* Yes! Of course! *glances at Fi* Whenever you'd like..
