A Snippet From A Song That Suits You Well:
Standing in the Way of Control by The Gossip
I'm doing this for you
Because it's easier to lose
And it's hard to face the truth
When you think you're dying
It's part not giving in
And part trusting your friends
You do it all again
But you don't stop trying

Broadway Diva.What were you like as a child?
Loud, outgoing, free-spirited, sassy. Not too different than how I am now, sans the drug use and sexual activity. Are you satisfied with your life?
Not really.Someone kills someone who was important to you. How do you react?
I freak out, scream, cry, sulk. Then I spend years plotting some ridiculous form of revenge, only to never actually go through with it, because I don't actually think I could ever bring myself to mortally harm anyone, unless it was to protect my own life.

New York City.What is Your Favorite Childhood Memory?
The day after my 11th birthday. That morning my brother and I got into a big fight, and he felt so bad that he took me out for the whole day and pretty much gave me whatever I wanted. He's pretty much the best older brother in the world, and I heart him.About Heroes…Who is your favorite character on the show and why?
It's such a cliche, but I gotta say Sylar. And it's not just because ZQ is such a babe (although, it doesn't hurt), but he's so very interesting. He's psycho fun. I would love to dig around inside his brain for a while and see what's up. Nathan comes in at a close second, which I find... ironic. If you’ve ever followed the graphic novel, who is your favorite character from it?
I don't follow the graphic novel, but I plan to.Which character can you imagine yourself hanging out with?
I actually wish I could hang out with Claire. I think we'd have so much fun together. I'd show her how to get it! Or Adam Monroe, because he seems like the kinda guy who could show anyone a good time. And you know he probably gets crazy. I dunno why I wanna hang out with the indestructibles.If you could have any power from the show, what would you have?
Peter's original power... duh. Empaths FTW! But maybe with a bit of Sylar's Intuitive Aptitude, because Peter is sloppy with his powers, and that's probably because he doesn't fully understand how they work. That's where Sylar comes in. Together, they could easily rule the world.Mr. Muggles - Is he a hero or a villain?
Double agent. Who would you clash with the most if you were a character on the show?
Probably Noah. Don't get me wrong, I got mad respect for him, and I do adore him. I just often really believe that he is in the wrong.You are able to go to dinner with one of the characters and have a nice, in-depth conversation. Who is it?
Mohinder. He's really smart and interesting, and I'm pretty sure he could easily hold my interest. Also, he's hella sexy. ;-) Or Hiro, because we could geek out together.
