Nonstop's First Interview! From Mary Woldering's Newsletter

1. Go ahead and introduce yourself.

Nonstop is my apelido‭ – ‬My riding name.‭ ‬It keeps people from knowing who my family is,‭ ‬keeps them safe.

2.Tell us where and when were you born.

I guess I can say something...‭ ‬Florida.‭ ‬It's a big state.‭ ‬People are born there everyday.‭ ‬I don't think that's too much information.‭ ‬I guess i was born in a hospital.‭ ‬Yeah.‭ ‬Long time ago.

3‬.‭ ‬How would you describe yourself‭?

Let's see.‭ ‬I'm young...I can drive anything‭ ‬-- peel the wheels off whatever you got.‭ ‬Whatever you need.

5‬.‭ ‬Tell us about where you grew up.

Uh,‭ ‬Uhm.‭ ‬Floida has oceans.‭ ‬And some very nice motocross runs.‭ ‬And tourist stuff.‭

6. How old are you‭?‬ ‭

Super-old‭! ‬High school was like forever ago.

‭7. ‬Did you have a happy childhood‭?‬ ‭ ‬Why/why not‭?

Sure.‭ ‬My childhood was Aces‭! ‬My folks would have liked to have had more money, for sure,‭ ‬but that didn't effect me much.‭ ‬How about you‭? ‬Did you have a happy childhood‭? ‬Ever sneak in the movies‭? ‬That was fun.‭ ‬Ever drive a motocross bike through a...never mind.‭ ‬Me either.‭ ‬I spent all my time in glee-club.‭ ‬Gleeing up everything.‭ ‬I shouldn't talk too much about it,‭ ‬because they could look up GLEE CLUB and probably find me,‭ ‬so let's chill on that.

8‬.‭ ‬Past/‭ ‬present relationships‭?‬ ‭ ‬How did they affect you‭?

What do you mean‭? ‬Affect me how‭? ‬My folks have always been great.‭ ‬The girls and the guys are all great.‭ ‬I've been paling around with a buddy from another planet,‭ ‬and he's usually down for some fun.‭ ‬Dig it.‭ ‬You gotta ride the‭ ‬Realmlines sometime,‭ ‬and you gotta ride them with Krork.‭ ‬That cat will sail the tsunamis right with the best of them,‭ ‬and he does it on that big, clunky,‭ ‬Grandma bike even...‭ ‬and...you know... you know,‭ ‬I always wind up saying too much in these things.‭ ‬I always regret it.‭ ‬Let's move on.

9‬.‭ ‬What do you value above all else in life‭?

Glee club.

9A.What are you obsessed with‭?

Glee Club.

10.How do your beliefs make life better for yourself and the people you care about‭?

Me‭? ‬My beliefs are just not to screw up.‭ ‬That's how I could make life better for everone.‭ ‬I've had a good run on the Bleed Zones though.‭ ‬I have helped a lot of people in those situations and that feels great.

11. Biggest fear‭?

That one of these things will be unfixable.‭ ‬That we'll meet one that won't care how good I can drive,‭ ‬or how good Varrage can fight.‭ ‬That something will happen to the Earth,‭ ‬and just some dumbness on some dumb afternoon will ruin things forever.‭ ‬You can miss you know.‭ ‬You can miss,‭ ‬and someone can fall,‭ ‬and you can never take it back.‭ ‬You can never fix it.‭ ‬That's my fear.‭ ‬That the world will fall into some dumb hole,‭ ‬and the second it does,‭ ‬it will be too late.

12. What line will you never cross‭?

I will never be the one that lets it fall.‭ ‬I will never be the one that quits.

13‬.‭ ‬What is the best thing that ever happened to you‭?‬ ‭ ‬The worst‭?

The best thing is that Dr.‭ ‬Norel asked me to help him test drive his interdimensional motorcycles.‭ ‬The wor...I don't want to talk about it.

14‬.‭ ‬Most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you‭?

Nothing embarrassing has ever happened to me.‭ ‬I‭ ‬have routinely landed in alien slop piles,‭ ‬started battles by saying the wrong thing to alien Queens,‭ ‬poorly represented humanity to the enraptured denizens of the Multiverse at every opportunity,‭ ‬and I have never spent a single moment being embarrased.‭ ‬Not me Jackson,‭ ‬I've got the slide in my stride.

15‬.‭ ‬Biggest secret‭?

I hate not knowing how to use my data-box.‭ ‬I hate how my head locks up when I try.‭ ‬Don't tell anyone though.‭ ‬Okay‭? We keep that on the down-low for now, right?

16‬.‭ ‬What is the one word you would use to define yourself‭?

Wreckless baby‭! ‬Well,‭ ‬leave off the‭ “‬baby‭”‬,‭ ‬so that it's right with the only one word thing.

17‬.‭ ‬What is your current goal‭?

‭My Goal? Hmmm...‬I'd like to catch a side thrum in the Realmlines,‭ ‬in a nice spot of high brightness,‭ ‬and not fall off right away.‭ ‬I‭ '‬d like to catch one, and stay on it for a fat ten minutes.‭ ‬Ride a whole vista if I had to‭ – ‬but,‭ ‬you know,‭ ‬be able to get back and stuff.‭ ‬That's my personal goal, a‭nd ‬I'm always on the look out for the chance.

Thanks! This was fun!
