Do you have a fun story about how you met your best friend(s)?
we had to do a project together during my second year of high school, so we met up at my house. after finishing, she turned to me and said ‘we’re never going to hang out again, are we?’
i took that as a challenge and made it a point to call her after that. 12 years later, she thinks it’s pretty funny to tell people that we’re only friends because i’m contrary.
Favourite thing about your best friend(s):
we all think the others are genuinely, exceptionally funny.

Where does your name (and/or URL) come from?
it’s a line don pedro says about beatrice from Much Ado, actually. beatrice gets me. And my name (Thalassa) is something my mom fell in love with when she was 14. She heard it on an ep of Star Trek. So I come by my cool naturally. Go me.
How long do you think you could go without your phone?

Have you read Muchado?
Which versions of Muchado have you seen? Which is your favourite?
