OUaT's Interview with Vincent:

OUaT: Hi Vincent, Glad to have you on the blog today. Can you tell us what are some of your favorite books?

Hi Yara! Well, I went on a reading spree of books set in New York City after I met this certain New York girl. *wide smile* So some favorite recent reads were The Angel of Darkness and The Alienist by Caleb Carr. Both books are really dark, but I have a bit of a dark side to me too. *winks*

On the same New York reading spree I really enjoyed The Chosen and My Name is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok. And then I’d have to say, sticking with American authors, Walker Percy wrote some amazing novels. My favorites of his: The Moviegoer, The Second Coming, and The Last Gentleman.

OUaT: Since you have been around for a while, what time period so far did you like or dislike the most?

The Second World War was a horrible time for humanity. You really saw the darkest side of people during those years: neighbors turning on neighbors, teachers betraying students, soldiers slaughtering people as if they were livestock, people making a profit off of the misery of others.

But then again, in the midst of all of this evil and despair, there were those whose humanity really shone. Meek little shopkeepers who turned their stores into information hubs for the Resistance, businessmen who put their families and fortunes at risk by using their power to save the powerless, elderly couples who hid dozens of war refugees right under the noses of the Nazis.

That war in particular brought out the worst and the best of people. So, even though I can’t say I liked or disliked those years, I would have to say that it was the period that affected me the most.

OUaT: When you are dormant, can you do other things besides follow around Kate?

Oh, plenty of things that Amy hasn’t mentioned in her books. Jules and Ambrose make extra cash by going to the horse races when one of them is volant. Seeing a few minutes into the future is pretty handy in those kinds of situations!

Someone asked me why we don’t spy on the numa while our spirits are free of our bodies. Revenants can sense other volant spirits nearby, so it works in both ways: we can’t spy on them; they can’t spy on us.

However, spying on humans is totally in the realm of the possible. And though it isn’t our mission to hunt down human criminals, when there has been a serial killer on the loose, or violent gang activity putting human lives at stake, the police seem to always receive these extremely accurate anonymous tips. *smiles slyly*

OUaT: What has been the sneakiest thing you have done while being dormant?

I won’t reveal any of my own misadventures, but I can tell you that there was a time when Jules hung out backstage at the Crazy Horse while volant.

 OUaT: If Kate could become a Revenant like you, would you let her?

No. I would never want Kate to be burdened with a revenant’s powerful need to die. And to see her endure violent deaths, sacrificing herself to save human lives...why would I wish that for anyone I loved?

OUaT: What is something you look forward to see in the future being invented?

Cure for cancer. There’s nothing worse than being charged with saving human lives and then being completely powerless in the face of such a widespread killer.

 OUaT: Can Revenants travel into space?

Okay, I have to say that’s the strangest question I’ve ever been asked. But...giving it thought, the problem with a rev-in-space would be the dormancy issue. Since we are dormant every month, everyone working ground support would be aware that one of their astronauts was “dead” for three days and then suddenly came back to life. Yeah, I don’t think that would work.

Lighting round:
Super Mario Bros or Zelda?
Atari or Playstation 3? 

I can answer those two questions together: None of the above. Sorry – after wasting literally months in the 1970s to this stupid game called “Pong” where you hit a square ball back and forth between rectangle ping pong paddles, I decided to stay away from video games altogether.

Croissant or Biscuit? Buttery, crispy croissants, please.

Vampires or Werewolves? Werewolves slobber too much.

Sunrise or Sunset? Sunset. Much more romantic.
