What do we know about Thorne? The lady dynamo bakes, she?s funny, she?s a good friend. But what else can we learn about this lady? Grab a cup of coffee and read on, learn more about Thorne.
1> How long have you been in RhyDin?
I've been in Rhy'din about twelve, thirteen years now.
2> What is the one thing about life in RhyDin that you love?
I love that anyone can be anything here. Who, or what you're born back home, can change in a heartbeat here. You really can make yourself into anything, anyone you want to be.
3> Is there anything about RhyDin that you would change?
The fractured nature of the infrastructure. The governor's currently doing, and those before him have done, their best to change things for the better (or at least their councils have), but there's still gaps and chasms between each group, in each sector that make making any real change, any real improvements, damn near impossible.
4> Last year you ran for Governor, why?
Because I really do think that if we could all work together, Rhy'din could be even more of an amazing place than it already is. And I'm not talking about changing the chaotic, somewhat wild type of place it is, or imposing more rules and regulations, exactly. What I'm talking about is the sort of thing that groups are already doing, but instead of one person, or one group here and there, I mean everyone being linked up and having access to the funds, services, needed to actually help the people that need to be, want to be helped.
5>How do you get around in RhyDin? Car, motorcycle, horse, carriage?
Yes? Mostly I walk, or jog, or use magical means. At least to get into town, my home is a few hours drive away, back in the mountains to the North. In town, yeah usually I'll walk, sometimes I'll ride, occasionally I'll hire a ride from a cab or a carriage depending on my mood.
6> What inspired you to take up cooking and catering as a profession?
Way back, it's my Gramma. We were dirt poor when I was coming up. I mean, stand in line for free food, eat pinto beans every night for weeks poor. But, she always made sure there was plenty of whatever we had. The neighbors kids were hungry, they'd have a plate too. Some random acquaintance stopped by at supper time, there'd be a place at Table for them. There's something, warming and pleasing in knowing that someone's enjoying something you've prepared with your own hands.
That, and when I first came to Rhy'din I had no income, and was stretching an inheritance as far as I could once I got my first house. Catering was the best, and smartest way for me to go at the time.
And I'm damn glad, damn grateful to the woman who gave me my first break.
7> If you knew you were going to be stranded on a deserted island - what 5 things would you take with you?
Roan, some sturdy rope, a cleaver, a deep stock pot, and some salt.
8> What is something most people don't know about you? What do they miss when meeting you?
There's a boatload of things that most people don't know about me honestly. I tend to be one of the people who don't tell everyone their life story. Hells, I've known some people for years, and they don't really know jack about me.
I think that what most people miss when they meet me is that what they see, what I show them, is the tip of the iceberg. And that they shouldn't assume anything just from the way I happen to act when I'm in a crowded public space.
9> Who do you think is fascinating to watch?
The list is pretty long, and there are more people being added to it everyday. But, the people who own themselves and their actions, the people who live their lives their way, but have the ability to understand, and accept that actions have consequences, those are the most fascinating people to be around to me.
10> What do you admire most about your best friend?
That he can live his life his way. That he's survived, lived, for so very long, without losing every shred of his sanity permanently. That he can make me smile, make me stop and think, make my heart skip a beat. And that, when it comes right down to it, when it's really important, he's right there ready to pitch in or throw down.
11> Who is your favorite bartender?
That's a toss up considering that most of the time when I'm in a bar, there's no tender on the clock. Amber's a blast, but so is Sissy in the SEB. So I'll say it's a fifty-fifty split between the two.
12> Who is your favorite caller? (If you do not duel, you can change this to waitress, shop owner... whatever works best!)
I mostly duel on Twilight, when I duel at all. So, Grace and Claire for the Isle.
13> Do you like sweets? What kinds of sweets are your favorites?
I don't always love sweets, but when I do, there's a shoppe down off the Docks that has the best chocolate dipped, roasted crickets ever. They're like chocolate coated wafer bars, only with legs that get stuck in your teeth. Or, I'll make something at home. Chocolate covered gummi bear clusters are a favorite with a couple friends of mine.
14> How do you feel about marshmallows?
They should only be eaten if they're homemade, and fresh.
15> How big is your tab at the Inn?
I don't have one. I pay for my drinks as I go.
16> Have you ever fed the stew?
A couple of times I think, at least, I think I have intentionally. Accidentally, definitely.
