Behind the mask of....Janie Annette Buchanan
Have you ever wondered if the person behind the character is exactly the same as their IG self? Like: does Faolan really love animals? Is William Mortdecai the reason why rum is always gone in real life too? And how about Lukrezia? Does she secretly adore pine apple pizza? Well SoMe is here to reveal some of the similarities and differences and this week we stalked one of the amazing HoCs with scissors: Janie Buchanan

A lot of the characteristics of Janie are very much similar to mine, but are amplified greatly for an effect.

I also consider myself to not be as emotionally blank as Janie and to all of those who have attempted to hug her IG, she's not entirely fond of hugs, but I am!

Also, while Janie got her eyelid scar during the Apocalypse, I got mine from scratching my eye too hard with too long nails. Not as crazy a tale, but it still hurt all the same!

One of the bigger differences is in appearance. I am not Korean and I actually have fairly light hair (we both share incredibly pale skin though!). Janie also has more experience with weapon training than I do.
Janie and I are actually quite similar. I initially didn't want to make her too different from myself as she was one of my first roleplaying characters.

She's a neat-freak, a grammar fanatic and perfectionist, and can be quite uptight. In real life, I am all of these things at less of an extreme level.

Janie and I are also alike in that we both love to cook and absolutely adore all types of teas, and have an extreme dislike of mushrooms and glitter.

We also both have a scar on one of our eyelids and part of both our names comes from a great grandmother. We are also both very old fashioned in many aspects of our lives!

So some more randomness from IRL me!

★ When I was young, I had an eye deviation called intermittent exotropia where one of my eyes would randomly drift outward at any given time. It scared some of my classmates, but I have control over it now.

★I could probably tell you the names of over 50 bands and singers from the 1940s-50s, but ask me to name a song from a modern day musician and I would fail miserably.

★I can not talk about or see anything involving blood or organs and such without feeling faint, but watching The Walking Dead is slowly desensitizing me.

★ I love everything made with tomatoes (including pico de gallo), but I can not stand to eat a tomato by itself.

★I am capable of staying up past midnight on any day of the year except for New Year's Eve, when I always seem to fall asleep early.
