"The people comparing Star Trek and Star Wars are arguing over nothing because the style of story-telling and the plot-lines aren't close enough to make a fair comparison. The similarities start and stop with the word 'star' being in the two word title of a sci-fi. That's it. Everyone shut up about which is superior already.”

@distant-wcrlds sent: I kinda want to ask all of the kitchen and living room questions for Cisco...
Household Muse inspired questions!
Does your Muse have a favourite food?
Cisco loves chow mein and szechuan chicken from Mama Chow's. Big Belly Burger is a close second, and he's not going to turn down pizza if offered. His taste in food boils down to highly Americanized ethnic foods, or foods with American origins. He quite obviously has a sweet tooth and always has a supply of candy on hand, particularly strawberry Twizzlers, and Tootsie Pops.
Do they know how to cook / bake?
He does know how to cook, and even though he doesn't do it particularly often when there's a big bad being dealt with, he's quite capable of making a good meal in his kitchen without fear of burning it or being inedible. Baking is not his forte, and while he enjoys baked goods, most of them come from CC Jitters.
Have they ever burnt their food while cooking or set off the smoke alarms?
Yes, but it's only happened if someone interrupted him and he became distracted. Left to his own devices allowed to focus, it's not a frequent occurrence as he was helping his mother cook at a young age and it was not new territory when he moved out on his own.
Do they drink enough water throughout the day?
Hell no. Caitlin actually rides his ass a LOT about that. He drinks far too much coffee, water is not his go-to for hydration and he often needs to be reminded that he hasn't had any yet that day.
Are they a messy or organized chef in the kitchen?
Organized. He can't stand when things are out of place as he's cooking, and will shoo people out of the kitchen to prevent disturbing of where he is working.
How often does your Muse get groceries?
Unless he's planning a certain meal, grocery shopping is often left until there's no more groceries left to cook a proper meal with the amount of time he tends to spend at Star Labs.
Plastic or reusable bags?
Plastic, it's actually less environmentally impactful, and easier to reuse.
Do they use the recommend serving sizes of food portions?
If that recommended serving amount is what's going to leave him feeling satisfied, which as a general rule with American food, is typically less than what is served, so it's safe to say he eats more than the recommended amount, not that he's bothered by that fact.
What is one food they could absolutely binge on?
Chinese. He would have no problem eating it for every meal in a day.
Do they have a favourite drink? (Pop, alcohol, juice, milk, etc)
Coffee. Iced, hot, doesn't matter it's coffee. But unless it's summer and he's actually outside he tends to err towards hot brewed. The cortex is typically cool no matter what so it really doesn't matter, and he prefers to wake up and have hot coffee.
Does your Muse watch television? What is their favourite show?
Yes, he watches a lot of tv when he has free time, although he will often be tinkering with something, putting together a figure, or doodling calculations even while he watches as it's not enough stimulation if it's a rewatch, sometimes even with new shows unless it's so intense he has to give it his undivided attention. One of his favorites is Star Trek, but very close is This is Us.
Does your Muse play any games? (Video, card, board, etc)
He actually collects vintage gaming systems. He does not play as often he as he did while a kid, but he still plays them sometimes. He also enjoys arcade games. One of his favorite games is Marvel vs Capcom 2 (you're not going to tell me it doesn't exist in arrowverse, he knows about She-Hulk). He also enjoys board games with his friends. Card games are the one he's not huge on.
Do they have a designated spot they always sit in?
He always has his specific chair on the right in the cortex, he does not like sitting on the left and will get cranky if for some reason he is not able to take His Spot. He will not sit in the middle of a couch unless he absolutely has to, preferring the right side if available, otherwise he'll take the left. Unless he's with close company, he prefers a chair to himself.
Do they fall asleep watching movies?
Rarely, unless truly exhausted, or so familiar with the movie and it's a volume as to be more background noise than mentally stimulating. Will never fall asleep during a horror movie.
What genre of movie do they prefer?
Sci-fi, action, and fantasy are his go-tos. He prefers something that removes him from reality, although the more time he spends on Team Flash, the more it's starting to blend.
What is a television show they cannot stand?
Touched by An Angel. His mother would watch it a LOT when he was a kid, and he just isn't religious anymore. He found it far too sappy as he would put it if asked, but really he just doesn't like the 'blindly believe in god' message.
Any commercials they find annoying or catchy?
He will guiltily admit to enjoying the Geico commercials, but he finds most commercials annoying, either for how patronizing they are, the lack of true necessity for the product, etc.
Have they hosted a party before?
Not at his home, that's what bars or other people's houses are for. Having a crowd socializing is not particularly something he wants in his home, which is his sanctuary and he rarely just invites people over unless they're in a relationship with him.
Has your muse broken any objects in their past?
Yes, both on accident and on purpose. He gets very put out with himself when it's on accident, he does not like having to replace things, nor having the lack of control of a situation that leads to breaking things.
How does your muse relax?
Working on building something, whether for Team Flash, or a model, figurine, etc. He likes being able to zone out and work with his hands and just think about what he's doing and not the things around him. Same for watching tv shows, it allows him to remove himself from his life for a bit.
Does your muse have a favourite book?
He relates to Peter Parker a lot, being a bullied smart kid, so his favorite book is basically just the og Spider-Man run.
@distant-wcrlds wants the good doctor's opinion on...:
Batman, Nightwing, and Edwin?
"The Bat." He sighs in potent disgust, taking a drag off his cigarette before continuing. "He's just as terribly self assured, arrogant, and conceited in his morals as Edward- only he hasn't the gall to carry out his righteous justice. Despite this, I do not share the drive to defeat the Bat that many of my 'colleagues' possess; I'd be damn pleased to go about my work and leave him to it if he'd only do the same. Granted my stance is liable to change once he topples off that ledge he's been walking for years now."
"As for Nightwing, I couldn't care less beyond simple ire. That boy is the epitome of obnoxious, all talk and nothing worth saying. While he does more for the worst off individual than his mentor and overseer, and has more control over that tightrope walk of vigilantism, I don't have much faith in his efforts of justice. The rule of 'no killing' is not control in the regard of the Bat and his brood, it's cowardice. I have no use for half hearted visionaries that beat and traumatize, only to let the mental and physical wounds fester. This will only produce more violent criminals, hell bent on reparation and retribution, in the end."
"And Edwin." He takes another drag, much longer this time. "I swear he's going to kill me some day. It's very... Strange, to say the least, to have someone return after a decade and all the emotions you thought were dead come rushing back with them. I have had a few years to sort them out, far better than I could when he first came back to Gotham- and certainly when we were still professors together- but... I have never been an interpersonally gifted man. It still makes my head spin to try and understand what he sees in me, and what I could have done to maintain those feelings from someone so... Kind, for one thing. I was a completely different individual those 10 years ago, shouldn't I no longer interest him? Never mind the criminal and terrorist records and all the actions that they entail. I doubt that I'll ever fully understand."

@distant-wcrlds sent White, brown, yellow with Sameer?:
⚪ White - What drew you so much to your muse?
[ Initially? It was the first clip I'd seen of Hell to Pay where he's in the ventilation shaft watching Scandal, Knockout, and Pyg, and he makes a smartass remark about two girls and "a guy in cuffs and a pig mask... Kinky." I love snakes to begin with, and the silent smartass is a fun character type you don't see often. ]
🟤 Brown - What is a headcannon you are particularly proud of?
[ Does the entire backstory I gave him count? If not, then I'm really happy I decided to make him so cautiously naive about the "outside world"; it makes sense given his history, and has potential for funny/cute/angsty conversations. ]
🟡 Yellow - What is the best motivation for you to write your muse?
[ Sameer, for whatever reason, is definitely one of my more fickle muses. I haven't really found anything yet that really motivates me for writing him, other than he's a fun muse- but that can only go so far. ]
#RireYouLikeThis || ooc #distant-wcrlds #//have i mentioned i like angst??? #//cause i really like angst :) #//like a lot a lot #//everyone has some #//why not add a few thousand bits more?? #//it wont hurt #//well at least not me #//it will the muse and likely anyone who interacts with them lmao #//oh well #//it good shit

"I think clones are just as much sentient beings as the rest of us living in the galaxy. I also think they should have full rights- to claim they should be forced into servitude because they were manufactured, somehow making them 'lesser', is something... that is both disturbing to me and disheartening. It allows for the slippery slope of disregarding the autonomy of even more people."

"While zoology is my specialty, a plant-human hybrid is a fascinating concept. It's a pity that Poison Ivy is such a volatile individual- it would be much more enlightening to study her while conscious... But that'll have to wait until I can have an antidote synthesized."
