"Who are you?" Just myself. I've never known how else to answer that.

"How do you see the world?" Better more often than not, but inexplicably terrible too. Is that an answer?

"Is your world a safe place?" My fictional world, you mean? No. "Safer than the world of reality?" Some ways yes and some ways no.

"If you were writing fantasy, what element would you bring in from the world of reality?" Relationships.

"What is the biggest prize in your stories?" I've never been good at this question. Independence, perhaps.

"If you had to divide humanity..." Tricky. Maybe those who want to be controlled by others and those who want to be themselves. Or something like that. I've never been good at either/or divisions. I like a middle! How about--those who divide and those who don't?

"In your world are there happy ending or morose ones?" I'm going with happy, even though not everything works out. I like to say hopeful rather than bleak.

"What is the biggest fear held by your characters?" Maybe I've completely failed to actually put this in my stories, but in my mind they fear not leading their own lives.

You do ask hard questions.
