    Aphaea joined the Moderation Team on Nov 1st, 2014. She joined EMC on Mar 4th, 2014. "It was the first server I found that did not have PvP and had the Town style formatting. Once I joined, it instantly became my Minecraft home! This was my 1st server and the only one I've ever needed to join. "

    What do you like to do IRL? Well, I foster animals that are either too young or need special care for the local animal shelter, until they are healthy enough to be adopted. Right now, I have two little kittens that are super fluffy!
    Favorite animal and why: That is a really tough question. I love so many different animals. I will go with my favorite from when I was a kid. I have always been in adoration of the tiger. They are beautiful, sleek, and to me the are so captivating due to their raw natural essence and almost mystical nature, not to mention the power they are capable of.
    Favorite website: Hmmmmm!!! <3
    Favorite thing about EMC: The Community!! I love the Community, there are so many friendly and helpful players, it is one of the main reasons I stayed on EMC and continue to play.
    Favorite color and why: Purple!! - I also really like blue and yellow. Purple (not that pastel shade!! GRR) has always been my favorite, I love how it looks, its dark but so a pleasing color yet pleasing to the eyes. Plus, everything looks good in purple, except mashed potatoes.
    Favorite Minecraft feature: Hmm - the ability to create whatever the heck I want!! Being creative and seeing what happens when you build is always fun. Plus, sharing those builds with others, always enjoyable!!
    Favorite Minecraft block: If I had to pick - Quartz -
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? I'd turn into a sheep and follow players around while baaing at them. Then I'd eat all their grass.
    Favorite music: I'm a metal fan - I also am into techno-y types of music
    *flash light raves*
    Pets? I have a tri color (black, white, with tan markings) Border Collie named Ein.
    A miniature sable and white Border Collie named Kenzi.
    A tuxedo cat with a Monroe mustache named Pixel.
    And a cat that is really weird looking named Luna - She has strange fur and markings - we think she was bred with something wild.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? Taste - Long as I could still smell things. It would be miserable but still not as bad compared to losing something else..
    I would miss being able to feel things, to see how beautiful the world around me is, the feelings and enjoyment I get from listening music.
    Thus - I picked which would be least heart breaking to me .
    Favorite cookie: Snickerdoodles for life!!!!!!!!!!
    Favorite quote: NA - Can't think of it right now.
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? Johnny Depp~ Because he is freaking awesome!!!

    Favorite quote: It is from Hávamál, I will post both the original and English translation

    "Haltur ríður hrossi,
    hjörð rekur handarvanur,
    daufur vegur og dugir.
    Blindur er betri
    en brenndur sé:
    Nýtur manngi nás."

    "The lame can ride horse, the handless drive cattle,
    the deaf one can fight and prevail,
    'tis happier for the blind than for him on the bale-fire,
    but no man hath care for a corpse."
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? Wish I could say hi to my dad again, and for him to meet my daughter.
