I hate butting Ell out of the way but HOLY CRAP WE FORGOT THE MEME.

So I'm gonna catch us up a little. :D

6. Can you remember things that other people in your group do? Are you aware of what happens in the front when you're not there?
Beth and I generally remember what the other does when one's fronting - unless one of us wants private time, and that's usually me, aheheheheh. But yeah. Beth and I are good at letting the others be aware. Ellie, though, when she goes off on her vacations, she doesn't tell us where she goes. Hell, she doesn't even really talk about them, just that she's gone and now she's back. (speaking of Ellie I hope she sticks around for a while)

7. Do you remember dreams? Are they your own? Do you share each others' dreams?
We remember our own dreams, or sometimes Beth'll wake up and say "Oh, Em had a good dream last night" because she can... kinda feel the residue of that dream? I dunno. Sometimes we do share dreams - we'll both be in one and we'll talk to each other and everything. Mostly Ellie and I share dreams, but once in a while Beth and I will dream together.

8. Do you all take responsibility when you wrong somebody as a group effort, more collective apology or do you expect the person who did the wrong to fess up?
Hm. I guess it's a group effort? Depends on how we screwed up, who it involves, and so on. When I piss the husband off, for example, Beth will end up apologizing for me, because she knows I wouldn't do it on my own. But if I end up screwing things up with Kyte, I think everyone here'd try to patch things up. Mostly because we're close with his entire system. And I think Beth kinda views him as an adorable little brother. But shhh. She probably didn't want me saying that. And I'm way off topic here. Next question!

9. Is there one in your group that stays in the body for more time than the rest? (How often do your primary front-runners change? How often do frontiers switch out? Is fronting a skill that has to be taught?)
Beth tends to have most of the front time, considering she's got the body's legal identity and everything. Aside from her, though, I front a hell of a lot more than Ellie does. Ell and I didn't really need to be taught how to front, although it was a different experience for both of us when we first started to front. Beth had to help me forward - I'd struggle in the back sometimes, trying to get front, and Beth'd play some of my favorite music and it'd get me relaxed enough to get to front. Ellie, she just slips in and out like a natural. Sometimes we don't even realize she's there until she speaks, haha.

10. How do you parcel out time during waking hours between work, school, hobbies, social commitments? Is it left up to whomever is in the front or do you plan it out? How do you balance money/space usage?
We're still working on that, now that we've moved and are trying to settle into a new work routine. I tend to get to come out in the evenings, when we don't have to work, and on the weekends too. And sometimes I sneak out during band practice and play, which is funny, because nobody ever thinks of me as a band geek. As for money? I ask Beth if I can buy something. She asks the husband. He rolls his eyes, and generally I get what I was looking for. Then again, I don't ask for much. The biggest thing I've asked for is my wig.

the rest of the questions )

We are so horrible at memes... Also, since I'm mostly awake, you get the answers mostly from my point of view. (and me = Em. XD )

2. How do you find new members? (Do you find other members mostly through journaling? Or can you see and hear them?)

New members wander in, I guess. Like, when we figured out Ellie was part of the crew, it's because she just came in to visit, like she used to do back when we were younger but didn't realize exactly what was going on. I came out from some nasty traumatic stuff back when Beth was a teenager, and George was always around until recently, and we haven't had anyone new come in since... well, since I came in. I keep forgetting I'm the baby of this bunch, haha. I mean, Ellie just had her 15th birthday! (And that's not how old she identifies as, that's how many years she's been with us)

3. How do you choose who wears what? Do you argue over clothing styles?

OH LORD. Beth dresses like she did in high school - t-shirts and jeans. And I'm sick of it, haha. I like to dress in louder things. Like corsets, fishnet shirts, long skirts, gothic lolita, and so on. Ellie doesn't really care what we wear, as long as it's comfortable. She's not a fan of tight clothes.

4. How are decisions made in the front (consensus/majority rules/one person makes them/other)?

Well, since there's usually only two of us in residence now, and occasionally three, we try to come to a consensus when there's a decision to be made. What's best for all of us, and so on.

5. Is knowledge shared equally or do some people have access to things that other people don't?

We try to share knowledge equally. Ellie doesn't tend to share her knowledge with others, she keeps up a mysterious front, but Beth and I kind of have an open well of knowledge. Or a library. Either way, if I need to know something, or want to know something, I can find it. :D

the rest of the days )
