I wanted to be an animator.
Way back when, I loved to draw. The first anime I've ever watched was Highschool of the Dead, which has gorgeous animation. My introduction to this anime only made this desire stronger, since I wanted to draw something as beautiful as that. I was really stoked to improve my skills so I could become an animator.
However, I got frustrated. What I drew on paper wasn't exactly like what I had in mind. And the only way to create what I had in mind was with computer softwares or one of those drawing tablets. I had neither.
What I did have were my words and a story. Upon realizing this, I wrote more and more. Eventually, writing stuck with me, and I'm glad it did.

I'm spending the night with my neighbor. And I tell you, it's a different atmosphere. At my house it's usually really loud. The only time I catch a moment of silence is when no one is home but me. Those are usually the times when I feel the most at peace.
But, at my neighbor's, it's nice. Maybe I hear a sound or two, but that's it. I can be alone with my thoughts, my stories, and my worlds. My neighbor and her mother are funny ladies, so that makes it even more entertaining, haha.
I can just see myself waking up in the morning. Getting coffee. Writing. And nothing will distract me but my own frenzy of ideas. Silence... it's something I call pure bliss.

Are humans truly creative, or do they gain their ideas from prior observations?

Ideas are often gained from something. There is always some sort of inspiration for an idea. The idea becomes creative when a person chooses to transform it. For example, Miyamoto was in his garden the day he came up with Pikmin. He thought of what it would be like if his plants came to life and helped him out. He took an ordinary concept and turned it into something new. And this is where creativity stems from. So my answer would involve a mix of both possibilities.

If you had to pick a new name for yourself, what would you pick?

Fiery. It's what the F in my name stands for.
Earlier in the year I told the story about Fiery Ambition, my character on a game called Toontown Rewritten. Maybe I should tell that story in a bit more detail.
When the game came into my life, I was stuck. Lost. Alone. In real life, I have trouble socializing. But when I was Fiery on Toontown Rewritten, it came so easily for me. Fiery was like the outgoing side of myself I never knew I had until I played Toontown Rewritten. Everyone laughed at my jokes. Everyone loved me. They said that I even made the game fun for them.
Even though Fiery is a male cat, he felt like the only vessel I could be myself through. He felt like the person who I truly was that was afraid to come out. And that's why when I make a new video game character or account I often name them Fiery.

Are you here to make new friends or to just spend your time??

I was in middle school when I made this account. Back then, this was all just to have fun. However, ask.fm was a source of toxicity back then. Many people from my middle school bullied me through here at that time. Thanks to that, Ask left a bad taste in my mouth.
Nearly two years ago I started receiving questions everyday. These questions were also asked to my old account, so I am to assume they are from someone who went to middle school with me.
That's when I started making friends. The first person I met was someone named Liu. She was inactive for a while after we started talking. But, Liu introduced me to many people on here. Firstly I became friends with Adeljina who also introduced me to a lot of people I'm friends with today. She was a good person, charming, funny, and smart. Hopefully she comes back one day.
It's ironic. The very source that used to give me anxiety and pain now allows me to express myself and make friends. I am grateful for Ask.fm, and I am grateful to have met everyone I have on here.

(Thank you for the free space.)
I have a cute story I want to share.
So I'm sitting on the edge of my bed. It's pitch black in the house. I see something in the hallway outside of my room. It scratches on the basement door and proceeds to stand in my doorway. It's my two year old sister.
"Go to bed," I say. She goes, but comes back with her sippy cup. So I'm thinking, "She's just thirsty. I'll get her a quick drink and she'll be right off."
Getting her chocolate milk is adorable. When you open the fridge, she'll hand you the chocolate syrup so you can make it XD not only that, she gets so excited over it. She hops and runs around with a smile.
While I was stirring, footsteps came downstairs. Now it was my older sister. She's like, "I caught you both red-handed." She then says to my little sister, "Are you suckering Chloe into getting you chocolate milk?" Yes. Long story short, I'm the sucker XD
Later on, my sister came in for a second cup. She even opened my door to get me XD but it wasn't long before we were caught again, by both my older sister and her boyfriend. My older sister gave me that same, smug grin XD we were caught again. I was the sucker twice.

What is your favorite Linkin Park song?

That is a tough one. But I am leaning towards Numb/Breaking the Habit/What I've Done.
Numb is an extremely emotional song and if you have that kind of relationship with someone, as I do, you can relate to it on such a deep level. Although I do feel like piano or acoustic instrumentals would fit the song better. I'm going to put a link to Caleb Hyles cover of it to show just how powerful that is.
Breaking the Habit tells of a personal journey Chester went through, I feel like. You can tell the lyrics are both personal and powerful. And I do feel like it's connected to What I've Done in some way. What I've Done is a perfect song to listen to if you've done something you regret.
I feel as if all of these songs are amazing and couldn't pick just one.
