About

Faded Fall

After perusing back to our About Us section the other day, we noticed how out of date/dated some of the answers were. So we thought we would do a ‘take two’ and answer some of the interview questions we intend on asking people this year.

Let’s start with the basics, you knew us as Him and Her when we last did this, but what are our names and what do we look like? 

Well…

Professional Golfer until that dream was thwarted by a teacher of mine. 

 Bob

Actor, Mermaid or Vampire? Still Haven’t changed much..

Ashuk-flag.pngI’m from London – Literally born and bred within the sound of the Bow Bells.

Bobaustralia-flag.pngI’m the other side of the world, Australia is where I was born, then moved to Phoenix then onto London.

How do you identify (sexually)

Ash

I always liked the term Metrosexual so I’ll stick with that, however we did do a online quiz where I got sexually androgynous, Which I was cool with.

Bob

Most of my life I identified as Bisexual/Pansexual but now I guess Queer or Homoflexible – This means though I can be attracted to anyone I am mostly interested in those of the same sex.

Favo(u)rite Word at the moment and why?

Ash 

floccinaucinihilipilification!

Bob

I’m not sure Kumquats is my usual or maybe Bubbles?

Least Favorite Word and why?

Ash 

‘Que Sera Sera’ – Not necessarily a word but I hate that saying! 

Bob

Panties (YUCK!) or Titties anything that kiddifies a normal word

What’s your Idea of happiness?

Ash

A group of friends sitting around laughing, joking and being comfortable.

Bob

Being cuddled by hundreds of animals and spending time with animals. Living a free, peaceful life where I can feel like I am helping nature and not leaving hatred or damage behind me. Also finding my purpose in life and a career I love.

What do you fear?

giphy

Ash

Being stuck where I am and never getting out of my current predicaments ever or being alone.

Bob

Never finding that purpose in life and always wanting but never getting anywhere and living this same existence everyday and never getting out of depression, ever. Also having the stalker person who has been harassing us for 11 years to still be here.

What do you hate about yourself and would like to change?

Physically?

Ash

Everything! I don’t think I have anything worth saving!

Bob

My body. Though I have parts I love for the most part due to stress I break-out like crazy and have ended up gaining unintended weight. I am slowly changing that by working out and getting stronger but it would be nice to not have to do that.

Mentally?

Ash

The lack of get up and go, to just be able to do something without over analysing it, worrying or fearing the consequences. 

Bob

My depression, I plan things out and get all revved up about it but because of my Bipolar my low normally kicks in I get disheartened and I get self destructive. 

What do you love about yourself?

Mentally?

Ash

My creativeness, I draw, Paint, digitally draw, write, blog, photograph etc

Bob 

My open mindedness and creativity. I have often been told that I’m a good person to talk to as I never seem to judge and for the most part that is true! Unless you are going to harm someone or something I tend to keep an open mind.

Bob 

An animal in pain or real full on heartbreak.

Bob

This is a really hard question and I couldn’t possibly narrow it down anymore than this, so I guess it’s cheating but can I say a mixture of these people. Go look them up, It’s impossible to not feel inspired.

Bob

Heath Ledger He will always have a special part of me – he was such a role model for me. bxFBoxi.jpg

Bob

Spiritual yes, I believe in nature, reincarnation and that sort of thing. 

Not religious though, I think the bible is a work of fiction and I don’t believe in god but if there was such a thing it would be gods plural not one all mighty.

Do you believe in karma? Or fate?

Ash I don’t believe in Karma but if it does exist it really has it in for us. I do believe in Fate though even though I would rather be an existentialist. 

Bob

As far as fate goes, wholeheartedly! There have been so many things in life that I pin down to fate.

Ash

To live – Norway, South Africa, India, Japan, Kawaii.

To Visit – Everywhere and Anywhere.

Bob

To live – Canada, Australia, Hawaii, New Zealand.

To visit – Peru, Brazil, South Africa, Caribbean, Israel, Spain, Mexico, Cuba. To be honest if you give me a ticket I will probably go to that place and love to explore the culture, the sights.    

Who do you dislike in the media? Why?

Ash

Apart from Trump you mean? Towie people and Geordie Shore, basically reality TV people.

Bob

Donald Trump, Theresa May literally almost everyone in the media nowadays everyone is so self obsessed and vain. People like the Kardashians  I mean lets just say the right people aren’t getting the media attention they deserve.

What does sex/sexuality mean to you?

Ash

I find this a really hard question to answer. It has never been a thing for me, I am what I am and that’s kind of all. Everyone thought I was gay when I was younger, But when they realized I wasn’t that was kinda it.

Bob 

Sex and Sexuality is something that for a long time has been something to be ashamed of but I think over the last couple of years the stigma is slowly lifting. More people are talking about sex, are having genuine conversations with each other which is so refreshing! When I was at school we did Sex Ed, we learnt nothing about sex in the practical sense we only really learnt about abstinence. If we did talk about sex it was only ever Hetero which was the average put a condom on this banana. We were never taught about other types of prophylactics or how to keep safe or even what options were open to you (especially as girls) We were taught about the Penis but not really about the Vagina. I wish sex wasn’t so taboo, that all types of sex would be educated or talked about especially all kinds of partners (Gay, Lesbian, Trans.) Literally everything in between, maybe if it was taught it wouldn’t be a point for people to pick on. Sexuality should be fluid, it should be an extension of yourself, it should be fun and non judgemental and be just right for you. So go explore! 

What do you think is sexy … in a man? …in a woman? (mentally and physically)

Ash

Mentally confidence without being cocky.

Physically

Male – Feminine looking

Female – Style – I have a type.

Bob

Both sexes have to have one trait mentally, Open Mindedness or the ability to not take themselves so seriously, If you look at all the people I’m attracted to like for instance in the Top 100 They all share that.

Physically

Male – For the most part Eyes

Female – A Smile, it is literally the sexiest thing.

What do you consider kinky/vanilla?

Ash

Kinky is anything my straight lace friends eyebrow raise to.

Bob

Kinky can be anything ranging from, is that really kinky? (Like tying someone up) to Oh my god why would you do that (Like Necrophilia) I guess Kinky is something that perhaps you wouldn’t talk about to a stranger, as a conversation starter.

What is your fetish?

Ash

Style in all its forms.

Bob

Plaid!

I’m not sure I have a set fetish as I have said before I’m open minded – Within reason.

Do you want kids?

Ash

I would say yes but I’m not sure it will ever happen.

Bob

I want a thousand animals does that count?

I’m not sure as of yet, some time in the future I would love to have children but I’m certainly not ready yet.

Do you want to get married?

Ash

I can always see the appeal. I love the party and the wedding production so yes! 

Bob

Yes and No. I am not sure I believe in marriage, I don’t think any one person is made to stay with another forever, humans are just not made like that. Also Marriage can be restrictive unless you have an open marriage or another kind of arrangement. However I do like the idea of having someone to share everything with and since Gay marriage is legal in some places now, who knows I may walk down the aisle and take all of this back.

What do you wish you could do?

Ash

Get up and leave, sit on a beach and write a best selling novel.

Bob

Succeed with certain endeavours and Change my luck. Find a way to work with animals and make that into a career.

What’s your vice?

Ash

Tea or Chocolate or both.

Bob

Caffeine I guess but I don’t consider it a vice more like an aid.

How would you like to die?

Ash

Without knowing and without pain.

Bob

Peacefully in my sleep or quickly doing something I love.

What do you want written on your tombstone?

Ash

Who pushed me?

Bob

Was that it?

What would you go back and change in history? In your own as well?

Ash

Mine – Asking a girl out in school when she was three years younger than me. I should have just gone for it no matter how much people were taking the piss out of me instead of letting it get to me and missing the opportunity.

History – Assassination of Franz Ferdinand that started the first world war, it would have changed all of 20’th century history, to do a kind of ‘what if..’

Bob

Mine – I’m not sure because if I went back would it change who I was?

History – When catholicism decided to spread their word and destroy other cultures. Pretty much when White people started to claim everything as their own. Apparently Philip the second when White people tried to claim The Americas as their own.

Where do you want to be in 10 years?

Ash

Anywhere that is not here preferably somewhere warm.

Bob

Not in the UK and maybe just maybe Happy.
