Type[Girl interest]: My standards are far too high, and I'm on the lower half of the standards spectrum, so it's honestly not worth even mentioning. >.>

Jade and Cynic are two characters that were spawned from my messed up psyche. They are similar to the angels which appear in cartoons over a persons shoulders that try and get them to do bad or good things given a certain situation. My angels on the other hand are what cause me to be such a critical person.
Jade - The manifestation of my jaded personality. She symbolizes all of the good media (in other words, movies/games/music/books/tv I like) and does her best to keep attention focused on her rather than the unproven. Apathetic by nature, she is rarely gets excited for upcoming works. She is prone to using seduction in order to keep attention on herself so that hope doesn't get too high for things that probably won't be any good upon release. She has grown tired of constant disappointments caused by thinking the best of upcoming works and instead prefers to wait until the product has been released before taking the slightest bit of interest in it or offering endearing comments on it.
Cynic - The manifestation of my cynical personality (obviously). He dislikes almost everything and prefers to look for the flaws as opposed to the good points. Has little faith in anything and only concedes to being wrong (sort of) when experience has proven the thing in question was better than expected. The rest of his time is spent picking things apart on a critical level regardless of what it may be. Chances are, if everyone loves it, he doesn't.
They are two halves to a whole, Jade is the one who dulls my excitement for future works by reminding me of the disappointments which I was led to in the past and instead pushes me to stick with the media that has proven itself to be of high quality. Cynic is the one that tries to break things apart on a critical level once the work has been released/experienced, looking for inherent flaws or problems with the piece. Depending on Jade's reaction to an upcoming game/song/movie/tv show/etc he will either begin criticizing it right away or remain quiet until Jade's feelings towards it are known.
So that's how these two lovable characters came to be. Parts of my personality that grew so strong they manifested themselves into an Anime form. The actual artistic depiction of the characters was drawn by Ich, a member I know from Gendou.com. He accepted my request to feed my crazy desire and drew the characters based upon my description of them. For that, I am very grateful. As a small way of repaying him, Cynic and Jade want you to check out his profile on Gendou.com in case you want to see some of his other works, he's very talented and has Jades approval.
