I think it's part "Beauty and the Beast," part "epically awesome clashing personalities/background." Kisame is such a unique character, not only physically, but mentally and personality-wise; I'm intrigued by the way he'll be ever so polite while shredding an opponent to ribbons. I like Sakura because we've been able to see how far she's grown, both as a person and a kunoichi. (I honestly couldn't stand her at first, but she grew on me quickly.) Throw them together, and you get explosive chemistry (not to mention the missing-nin/loyal kunoichi drama).
2. Favorite and least favorite foods?
I love pasta and curry, especially lamb korma, but lately I've been eating more veggies 'cause I'm trying to lose weight. Least favorite... crunchy onions. Cooked onion is fine, and they're okay if they're diced small enough (like in salsa), but crunchy onion = ick.
3. If you had the money to live wherever you wanted, where would you go?
Hmm... good question. The only places I've lived before have been Michigan, Florida, and briefly Indiana, so I don't have a lot to base the opinion on, but as long as I have easy access to friends and family (and good shopping!), I'd be fine. As for a house, I adore vaulted ceilings, sliding doors, and sprawling lawns.
4. Favorite games to play?
Chess, solitare, mah jong, poker, bullshit, war. Suck at Monopoly and Scrabble, but they're still fun.
5. Least favorite ships?
ItaSaku normally bugs the crap out of me because a lot of authors do the abusive!Itachi or "Sakura abandons Konoha for him" crap, but there are a very few fics that I'll read with it. Madara/Sakura doesn't hold much interest for me. Sasuke/Sakura... *kicks Sasuke* Yeah, pet peeve. OOC Sasuke/Naruto.
