My Ranking Points
I haven’t done this before, so we’ll see how it goes. Welcome back to Royal Power! No scores today, I’m giving those out next week. This should be a lot less time consuming.
Today we’re having a fun discussion.
Reply to this post with a however-long-you-want response answering the following prompt, and reply to someone else’s. If you do that (“commenting for the notifs” does not answer the prompt) I will guarantee you over an 8. The more you participate and the more thorough you are, the better your score!
The prompt is this: What about you would your classmates, acquaintances, (anyone outside your family/best friends) not believe if you told them? Explain why people think that and whether or not you care.
For example, one of my friends told me once if he didn’t know me, he’d think I listened to classical music all the time. I like classical, and I do listen to classical, but my preferred genres are Disney and Top 40 pop.
One of my friends she moved here from Thailand thought, that I was the kind of girl who is nerdy and always has her nose stuck in a book. In reality I am a very athletic girl who does 5 dance classes, soccer, cross country, track and field, and I sometimes play basketball for fun. (Although when I am not doing these things I am usually reading)
You sound like me (except I’m loud and I hate soccer. Don’t hate me) Favorite dance genre? I love MT more than anything.
I’m a dancer as well, though 5 classes is a little much for me. In all reality, I probably am that nerdy girl your friend thought you were.
I really like Tap and Jazz. I HATE ballet but at my studio i is required if you want to go to competiton.
commenting for motifs BUT I PROMISE on everything I own that I will reply to this soon, I just can’t atm because it’s too late for me to think about interesting facts lol
My best friend told me that the first time she saw me she thought I was one of those bratty ****** kids that bossed the others around. In reality, I’m probably the exact opposite. Everyone NOW is like; “Oh my gosh, how are you so kind and quiet?” Tell you the truth, it’s kinda annoying.
I think my friends are very surprised at my love of fantasy. I’m a realist through and through, so my love of Disney, SGE, HP and magic in general surprises people. My friends always joke that if we were on a plane, I’d be the first person to explain our chances of crashing, all of the reasons why, and how to prevent it. I can anger people, because I’m a great liar when I want to be, so if I hate something, EVERYONE knows.
people: “Is this glass half empty or half full?”
Us: “It’s a glass of water. WHAT Do YoU PeoPLe WaNt FroM Me?”
I’m really similar, haha. People get mad at me for being realistic, but I also really enjoy fantasy.
okay same! my parents always get so annoyed with me for being realistic and not being super optimistic and incessantly happy all the time and I’m like um what
My friends thinks that I’m kind of silly and immature. But I’m mostly kind of serious and realistic. Mostly. I am really dramatic. Really , really, dramatic. (This is the one thing that my friends actually have right about my personality). I’m Indian American, I don’t actually know what people know that. Like, half my school is Hispanic, so people might think that I’m that because I have light brown skin and dark hair which is what most of the Hispanic kids look like. (Why don’t I know these things lol)
Same, honestly. I’m the youngest in my friend group, so it seems like I’d be really immature, but honestly most of them time I’m the one keeping my friends from dying XD.
My friends are always surprised at my love for dark/depressing/dramatic/tragic/macabre/scary
(whoo that’s a long list) things because I’m generally a pretty friendly, amiable person according to them. It normally takes another friend to back me up and an example of something I like to actually get someone to believe me on this, but most people’s first reactions are “wait, really?!.” I’ve always liked writing about darker things, and my favorite books tend to be some of the most dramatic, deep, or scary of the lot.
For example, a couple months ago we had to read a book of Poe’s short stories for school, and I was raving about this one that I really liked, The Pit and the Pendulum. I thought it was incredibly interesting and really great, but my friends were mostly terrified by it and couldn’t believe that I had remotely enjoyed it. Since then, it’s been a running joke between me and my friends. So, yeah, that’s probably the most surprising thing about me, according to the people I know.
Lol! Every once in a while, I’ll go super morbid and depressed and by now my friends are used to it
This is almost exactly like me and my best friends when we first met each other. I can’t go a minute without talking and I am known for being a drama queen. (It was my nickname for 7 years from my cousins)
My school actually has a decent amount of Hispanic kids but almost no African Americans. Also, am I the only person who goes to private school?
Not many people outside of my theater group and close friends would believe that I am a huge nerd and love to read, write, and act. If you ask me about one of my fandoms, be PREPARED for more facts about it than you could ever possibly want to know. (Did you know that when Robert Pattinson was asked what he had in common with Edward Cullen, he said, “I look a bit like him”? Did you know that if Voldemort really wanted to kill baby Harry, he should’ve just dropped him out the window? Also, the t in Voldemort is silent! Did you know that Ze’ev Kesley is 6’4″? Did you know that Danna Bell/ Monarch is multiracial? I need serious help!) Anyone who knows me knows I am a huge nerd!
Quick question, HAVE YOU READ THE ENDING OF ALLEGIANT? THAT WAS THE WORST ENDING TO A BOOK. EVER!
IT WAS REALLY SAD AND I SAW ONE TIME SOEMTHING THAT SAID WHEN **** **** (You know what I mean) SHE WAS PREGNANT AND I-
Can you read one of the chapters from my book? I have a big Allegiant referance in it that doesn’t really make sense unless you have read the book.
I did in fact know the t is silent, but that doesn’t stop me from pronouncing it. When you think about it, that does seem like the best course of action, but then again, Neville bounced so….
Same, I’m such a huge fandom nerd, but quite a few of my favorites are also books people have never heard about.
Nobody would believe me if I told them that I cry during sad books and movies. I mean, they wouldn’t be surprised with the books, but they would be with the movies. (Exception: my friends, they’ve seen me cry before) Everyone thinks I’m very dark, mean, evil, and I’m kind of the annoying smart stu.pid goth idi.ot girl. No one would believe me if I said I’d cried over one character’s death. (Not including Endgame because whoever didn’t cry during Endgame is a beast, not a human.)
I cry in almost every book I read. SGE? Of course! Allegiant? How could I not! Charlettes Web? Yup! Rayna, I know how you feel.
Everyone of my friends who are girls has cried reading Allegiant!! The other ones I can see but ** did you not cry when you know who dies?!?!?! Before you ask, NO I am not one of those girls who hates death. I have disected my own sheeps’ heart
It’s the third book in the Divergent series. Divergent is about a girl who lives about 500 years from now and everbody is supposed to pick a “Faction” to follow. She was born in Abnegation (Selfless) but she doesn’t know what faction to choose. I’m not telling you what Allegiant is about because it would spoil the first 2 books.
I can’t cry while reading books. I’m sorry, I’m just not very emotional lol
I literally cry in any remotely sad thing but let me tell you
the fault in our stars was practically a bath I cried so much
Can I tag you in my activity to read something? I need a person who knows my reference.
It’s funny, I’ve only ever cried when someone died in real life or when I read a sad book.
I tried to make myself cry so bad during Endgame and I felt really bad when I didn’t, then five minutes later, during *the scene* I did actually cry, so-
MAJOR SPOILERS FOR HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE
Even if you haven’t read it you probably know this by now but I’ll put the warning anyway.
Dumbledore’s funeral. The only time I ever cried in a fantasy book. (The Art of Racing in the Rain does not count)
okay, that tore at my heart, I cried once while reading it and then again thinking about it while trying to sleep
Okay so all Divergent fans out there, I looked at the reviews on Goodreads and every single person says the book is horrible. Should I read it?
Ah, well, personally, I enjoyed it when I read it, looking back it definitely was’t the best series but if you’re into dystopian novels with well developed worlds I think you’d like it 😀
Well, one thing that most people wouldn’t guess about me is that I actually quite enjoy rap music when it has a purpose. Honestly, most would see me as a kinda One Direction Taylor Swift (I love both, don’t get my wrong) girl, but honestly, I love Lizzo and Kendrick Lamar and Drake. Apparently, I seem like someone who doesn’t startle easily, but honestly, my whole class found out the one time when snow fell off the school roof and I thought it was a person. Needless to say, I screamed and surprised the whole class. Last thing, most people I know get pretty surprised when they learn how stressed and sad I get? Like I told my friend once I had a mental breakdown from schoolwork a couple months ago and she was really confused, because normally I’m the “happy” friend.
Well. That’s it (I think)
I feel terrible because I can’t cry when people die. It makes my eyes really dry.
I’m the oldest in my friend group but I mostly act the youngest. I’m surprised by how little my friends know about me. I’m a realistic person, and I can be quite cynical. As for my taste in music, I’m really a music person. I play cello and trumpet, but I really enjoy pop. My favorite solo artist is definitely Taylor Swift. I also really like Lizzo as well.
TAYLOR SWIFT IS MY QUEEEEEEN I love her so much omg her documentary made me cry
okay Lizzo is an iconnnnn
You poor child
I’m usually the happy friend in my friend group, too, and last year, when I was very angsty a lot of the time, a couple of people got upset at me and told me I had to be happier because that was my “job” and they played the victims and I almost slapped them
One thing that most people probably don’t know about me is that I get sick of worrying sometimes. It’s like, you fret and fret and can’t just CHILL and it’s annoying so I get tired of it and just STOP sometimes. I know it’s kinda weird but tha’s me. :’)
I understand that. For me, it’s the point of worry where I’m worrying about being worried in the situations I run through my head.
Y’all better be enjoying this because I have 3 pages of notifications from it!
It would probably be the fact that I have anxiety attacks pretty often? In school and when I’m around other people, they mostly describe me as calm, confident, and ready to speak my mind. I’m not like that around my group of friends though. I’m really quiet, and what my father describes as
“socially awkward”. I’m a huge bookworm, and I love writing. I don’t seem like a person with anxiety, but anxiety is what often runs my life.
It would probably be the fact that I love to dance. I’ve been dancing for ten years, and yet some of my friends are still surprised when I talk about dance. It might be the fact that I have a lot of academic interests, but if it’s hard for friends to believe that I like dance, then strangers probably even more.
I used to dance, too! Most people are surprised I don’t do it anymore, tbh.
Lots of people assume I would do all academic extracurriculars and activities because I study hard in class, so they’re surprised when they find out I dance (ballet, jazz, and modern) and like to sing because that supposedly doesn’t fit in with the “academic nerd” stereotype.
Yeah that’s me too…. except replace the dance with swim team. I also love acting and volleyball though.
When I first meet people, I’m really quiet, but when they get to know me I’m actually pretty talkative.
