This Skarmory/Charizard fusion is very rare and tends to be quiet and shy until befriended. Also writes and is a huge fan of Smash Bros.

This Pokémon can often be found alone in her room writing or reading. This is because she is an introvert who doesn’t feel like going outside today.

On a scale of one to ten, how chaotic is the feature team?

0, that's the festering secret at the heart of it all. As I understand it, most every single member of the feature team works full time or has commitments that are equivalent to it. I personally bottle up my chaos and save it for shitposting vicariously when each new Riverdale episode drops. When I'm on the feature beat, I make box schedules and ping people about them.

We're actually currently a little understaffed! While we have enough hands on deck to run events, it's actually features themselves where we're coming up a little shorthanded. Each feature team member has informally specialised into their area of interest, so in execution we only have 1-2 featurers per medium. If you're ever interested in writing features, please reach out!!)

What's the one book you read you really want other people to know about/read?

Romancing the Beat, by Gewn Hayes! In it, she lays out a method for story structure that specifically pertains to the romance genre. I love it because she has loosely adapted a story structure for screenwriting that I am comfortable and familiar with, and given it this novel application. I've been a fan of it for some time now, and I really enjoyed her passionate defense of the happily ever after so common to romance novels. I've always loved commerical/popular fiction -- probably because I'm not intelligent enough to grapple with literary fiction, and partially because I'll admit that I read fiction to be affirmed and uplifted more than challenged. (It's a nice counterbalance from the thing that occupies the majority of my reading -- domestic politics.)

Time for this question to come full circle

What’s your favorite go-to meal?

Motherfucking homemade chicken pot pie. What I make ends up more as kind of a stew, as I'll stir rice in while it is simmering and omit the crust entirely. Since the start of the pandemic, I've really come around to making my own stocks and broths with meat and vegetable scraps, and I reckon it makes all the difference. I think risotto is a bit fussy to look after and I'm a huge fan of meals I can leave simmering and walk away from.

In terms of work lunches, I'm big on rice, steamed fish, and steamed or roasted vegetables, with some pickled ginger and some furikake to go with the rice. My fiance hates eating seafood, so it's my way to have some without feeling a bit guilty about us having separate dinners at home, since he does a lot of our home cooking and that increases the hassle by an order of magnitude.

How did you come up with your username?

Fairly easily! My primary handle for the... ah shit, the best part of the last decade now, has been Flo or Flop. Combine that with my favourite pokemon, Luvdisc, and you get Flopdisc.

On a scale of 1-7, what’s your favourite colour?

1, pink. I usually don't wear it too much in day-to-day life, but I have an all-pink gym outfit that I love. I wore it today! My pink running shoes need the mesh on them fixed up, but they're one of my favourite things because before them, I'd never owned anything really approaching a proper pair of running shoes. And I spent a non-triviasl amount of time tracking down pink watch bands for my Fitbit (I have one I need to go pick up from my PO box this week, as a matter of fact!) I also accessorise in pink whenever possible, meaning my work setup is Very Pink and the vibes are indeed impeccable.

If you could live in one of Weigo’s gym cities (or the ranger camp and whatever Aldren is), which would you pick?

What inspired you to start writing?

I’d made casual attempts at writing things from a young age, and been alright at it at school, but everything changed when, at the probably-too-young age of eleven, I read the Hunger Games trilogy. I’d read book series like Percy Jackson before and enjoyed them, but none had really stuck with me in the way that Hunger Games did – most notably its close-in, voicey, character-focused first person present style, which I still emulate to this day in basically everything I write. Those books made me sit up and think “I wanna do stuff like that”, and I’ve been trying to ever since. Hell, the first real stories I ever wrote starred Katniss Everdeen (alongside me and my friend Chance as self-inserts).

What's your favorite thing about Hong Kong, and what's your favorite location?

As I draw ever closer to leaving, I think my favourite thing, or the thing I’ll miss most, is how easy it is to live here. We have quite possibly the world’s greatest public transportation system which makes getting around a breeze, and there are convenience stores on basically every street corner where you can use your transit card to pay for food! It’s a very efficiently set up city where shit just gets done.

For my favourite location, I have to go sentimental. I basically grew up in one place: a little town some ways away from the big city called Sai Kung. If you’ve read the latest Pokemon Surge update, this actually served as the inspiration for Neihou Town – the town square, the seafront, the fishing boats, the beaches, all little details picked up from the place I spent my childhood. It’s a quieter place that’s very proud of being different and has a strong community, and I love it.

what do you enjoy about nuzvivor?

I really found myself enjoying the social aspect of the game, even though I wasn’t very good at it. It was really fun to navigate and try to scheme, especially post-merge (even if it didn’t work out in the end)

Which player from any season of Nuzvivor would you most like to form an alliance with?

I would have loved to team up with Crono or Ty – they’re both classic power players from my NBL era and they seem like they’d be strong allies. As for someone I actually played with, I was really sad that I barely got to do anything with Floatzel.

If you could live in one of Weigo’s gym cities (or the ranger camp and whatever Aldren is), which would you pick?

I don’t think we have a name for it yet, but the volcanic/hot springs island city where Oshio resides seems like it’d have super awesome vibes. A bit remote, but relaxing and fun!
