Questions for Future Libby
Question from Gwen: Anyway: Libby Futura, does Shangri Llama have modern technologies and/or capabilities? If it doesn't, how did you deal with your music withdrawal?
FUTURE LIBBY: Libby Futura? I like it! ^_^
Well, Shangri Llama isn't exactly modern compared to all the crazy things I've seen out in space...you know, like ships and superweapons and all that jazz. But it's not exactly Medieval either...we have a TV (powered by one of those water wheels!) and some movies, although they're almost all dubbed Chinese Kung Fu films. 'Sides, the monks don't like me watchin' TV too much. Not that I really put up that much of a fight...once you seen one Chinese martial arts movie, you seen 'em all.
In terms of music, I miss my old pop and rap a lot. Still, the monks are great musicians ('specially the girls!) and they let me put on my own music performances from time to time. They were so much fun! It's kind of cool because I've had to train myself to make whatever kind of music I want to hear. I've even written my own songs!
so now you know. If you ever feel like
stoppin' by sometime (you know, if I ever get back to Shangri Llama)
check out one of my performances.
Question from Cindyfan7: How does it feel seeing Aurora in so much pain I mean she is your best friend?
really hurts to see Aurora hurtin' so much. There's not much I can do
try to be there for her when she needs someone. I think that she's on
to recovery, though. I'm still hopin' that this whole mess can end well
Question from Cami: I'd like to holla at Future Libby. 'Sup girl! When you were w/ the monks, did you ever want to become one yourself, or did you still believe that Sheen would come back? 'Cuz to be honest, before the Jimmy in our universe came paid you a visit, the world must have seemed pretty bleak.
FUTURE LIBBY: Back at ya, girlfriend! Uhhuh...I do admit that life with the monks could be real boring and even horribly constrainin' at times. It was terrible to lie awake at night and think "me an' these monks are the only human beings left on the planet". The only way to cope was to put all those things out of my mind and throw myself into their way of life. If I had spent all my time thinkin' about Retroville or wonderin' what happened to my friends, I woulda gone crazy. So in a sense, I guess I did become a monk. I tried to learn everything they had to teach me, and I kept myself as busy as possible.
Then again, I can't say my time there wasn't enjoyable...I mean, I did have an entire camp full of people ready to get me anythin' I wanted and run to meet my every whim. ;-) But that kind of thing can be grounding, too, if you turn it down. I pride myself on the fact that I did things myself even when other people were offerin' to do it for me. Made me feel more independent, ya know?
in all, I guess I discovered a different side of
myself durin' my years in Shangri Llama...a more patient, understanding
All this stuff that's happened made me realize that life's not about
stuff or fame...but about the people who are close to you. Although a
makeover is definitely a must from time to time!
Question from Pigquet: Do you believe the
monks were selfish to completely avoid the war and only care about
surviving themselves and being happy when others are suffering, not
wanting you to go w/ your friends and help them in the war (again only
thinking of you), telling Aurora to calm down and relax after all the
good she's done in saving people and the more she knows and has gone
through? Pretty much just being pacifist. Did you approve of them
talking down to her and making her be patient in an emergency, just
because they aren't use to them? And also not caring about other
FUTURE LIBBY: Well, I suppose from an outsider's perspective, it does seem like the Monks were selfish. But in their defense, it's not like they've got the tech or resources for the war effort. Not to mention that none of us knew the real extent of what was goin' on anyway - like I said, we didn't exactly get a Galactic Enquirer. Even if we did, I don't think they'd go beyond peaceful protest. They're just a bunch o' Sheen-lovin', slightly chubby pacifists. They really believe that it's wrong to fight, other than some occasional martial arts in the name of self-defense.
I didn't know they said any o' that stuff to Aurora. But I'm pretty sure that if Chen-Yu told Aurora to calm down and not fight with her emotions, then he had a good reason. Maybe that advice will save her later on, ya know? They shouldn'ta "talked down to her" like you said - but that's just Chen-Yu. He's so OLD and borin'. Sometimes he forgets that younger people know stuff too.
I guess maybe I'm biased, since they've always been so nice to me - but deep down I really think they mean well. And I'll have plenty of time to talk sense into 'em when I get back and have more time to explain.
from Andrea: If you could turn back time would you return to the
moment sheen helped you escape and stay?
from Rachel: Future Libby, Aurora, and the kids -- When
you returned to Earth to discover that the monks of Shangri Llama had
survived DJ's destruction, how did you feel? Did it hurt to learn
they'd survived just by meditating while all your friends and family
were wiped out?
from Rachel: After being separated from Sheen for so long, what
do you expect your meeting to be like when you finally find him? What
have been your hopes and fears through all of this, wondering what
Dictator Jimmy has done to him...wondering if Future Sheen is even
alive? Also, after being separated from Sheen for so long, what do you
expect your meeting to be like when you finally find him? What have
been your hopes and fears through all of this, wondering what Dictator
Jimmy has done to him...wondering if Future Sheen is even alive?
from Sunny: Does it scare you that your best friend is the only
one alive to have ever made it out of DJ's ship?
from Sunny: What did you think when Cindy started going by her
middle name? What do you think of going by YOUR middle name, just to
save Mara some trouble? And do you think that facing DJ in the ultimate
battle as "Danielle" would take some of the fear-mystique thing away
from your side?
from Noemi: 1.- U knew Cindy, and now u've seen Aurora...it's
she the same to you or she has radically change??? I mean ...do you
think there's still some of the old Cindy in Aurora or not?
2.- Do you think that Aurora really hates DJ or is the same stuff that happened when they were at school?
from Rachel: Future Libby, were you lonely living in Shangri
Llama? After all, all your friends and family were far away...or
dead :unsure: ...and the monks of Shangri Llama were strangers at
first. What was it like adjusting to their culture and traditions? How
did you spend your time at first, before you started to really become a
part of the place?
from Katy: Do you think that aurora and dj still have feelings
for each other?
from Annabellion: to Future Libby: If you could babysit one of
these kids (current Jimmy, Cindy, Carl, Sheen, Libby), which one would
from Emily: Why are
you less modest in your sense of fashion now than when you were 12?
