Beautiful People: Cyrus

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

via pinterest///This is in no way similar to Cyrus. But I couldn't find anything suitable, and this dress is perfectly Ardetan. So there you go.

It's been so long since I did a Beautiful People post, I thought I'd go ahead and unpack this fellow Cyrus, somewhat new to me and most entirely unknown to you. I won't tell you too much about him, since that really is the job of the questionnaire; I will say he's a quiet fellow, but sturdy enough.

1) What’s their favourite food? (Bonus: favourite flavor of chocolate!)
You don't start off easy, do you? Cyrus has little interest in food (though for chocolate, he won't say no to some white-with-raspberry-filling). A well-prepared beet soup maybe -- summer dishes are the best.

2) What do they absolutely hate?
Cocky incompetence.

3) What do they enjoy learning about?
Science and mathematics, history and rhetoric. Sometimes botany. (Botany? Why botany?)

4) Who is the most influential person in their life?
His tutor, his schoolbooks, his studies: he is an intelligent boy, for sure.

5) What is their childhood fear?
It is an odd fear coming from such a solitary creature, but Cyrus long feared isolation. There's something to be said for it too: the unchallenged mind is subject to all sorts of attacks, especially from itself.

6) What is something they have always secretly dreamed of doing, but thought impossible?
Strangely, Cyrus would like to fly. He's not too sure how this would be possible, but he has studied math and science in-depth, and if anyone was to discover a method of flying, it would be him.

7) What is something he is impractically afraid of?
Again, isolation. He does not like to be bothered, questioned, or pestered, but he does not either like to be alone. He needs to find a woman to accompany him in silence; a warm, unassuming presence to keep his head from wandering, silent enough to let him learn.

8) Are they a night owl or morning person?
Cyrus is, without a doubt, a morning person. Unlike most scholars, he does not like to stay up until the wee hours of the morning at his books. Rather, he wakes naturally with the sun, and works from there through the day until the sky grows dark. His eyesight at least is not hurt by this method...

9) Do they say everything that pops into their head, or leave a lot unsaid?
Definitely not! Cyrus leaves a lot to be said, resulting quite often in curious spectators and uncertain relations alike. He's difficult to read, and his quiet brain is constantly measuring his surroundings.

10) What are their nervous habits?
Lip-biting. It's common among his kind. XP

And there you have it - Psithurism's book-nerd, if you will. 


  1. I would've been bored by botany.

    1. So you see, even in other circumstances, it would have been a disaster.


  2. His kind? So is he human or something else?

    A bookie. I love those. What's his story about??

    1. Ah, but you'll have to wait for the book for the answers to those questions!

    2. Aww... :( Well then, I can't wait! :)

      Do you expect it to be done any time soon?
