After a large, chainsaw wielding man carves you in half in Gears of War, you don't expect the female voice talking trash in your ear. Especially one with such a filthy mouth -- if the Zombie Skate stories are to be believed. Lunabean is a mystery, underneath her love for animals and questionable choice in men seethes the fury of a thousand angry wasps, aching to unleash vengeance on the unsuspecting masses. Here's to lunabean, she hearts brains.

As far as I know, that's a real bird and it's very, very happy.

Who the devil are you?

Hello! My name is Emmy. I'm 25 years young and I live in California. I'm a science nerd but you wouldn't know unless you bring up microorganisms or intestinal parasites. I have a strange sense of humor and I try not to take life too seriously. I procrastinate often except when it comes to my taxes; I love doing my taxes.

What are you supposed to be doing during the day when you're reading GWJ?

Studying, mostly. I'm a Vet Tech student. It's equivalent to being a nurse but for animals. I run my own pet sitting service and I will be working in a small animal hospital after this semester ends.

How about family? Kids? Pets? Particularly meaningful inanimate objects?

I'm not very fond of the idea of having kids. Sorry, mom!

I have a three year old cockatiel named Pepper. He's my only child and he's very spoiled. Owning a bird is basically like having a perpetual 3 year old in the house. I'd like to adopt some more birds but that will have to wait until we've moved into a house and have the space.

As for meaningful inanimate objects, I'm very proud of the costumes I've made (Yuna from Final Fantasy 10, Jill Valentine from Resident Evil, and Columbia from Rocky Horror Picture Show). I also own some very rare vinyl records that took me years to find.

What was your favorite game over the last year or so? Why?

If I have to pick just one, I guess I'll go with Gears of War. It's certainly my most played game of the year. Co-op story mode is perfect and the multiplayer is so much fun to play with goodjers.

Which game are you looking forward to most?

I can't choose just one! Halo 3, Animal Crossing for the Wii, DDR Universe and Super Paper Mario are a few that come to mind.

What is your fondest gaming memory?

Playing Guitar Freaks/DrumMania with my BFF Kara. I was on drums and she was playing guitar. She had the official DrumMania controller but not the Guitar Freaks controller, so I brought my Guitar Hero controller over. Guitar Freaks only uses three buttons so we assumed it'd be easy to go into the settings and make it work. It was not. It took us nearly an hour to get the Guitar Hero controller to work with the game, and even then it still didn't work perfectly. However, it didn't matter; we had fun pretending we were rockstars.

Finally, why do you play games at all? Why haven't you outgrown them?

Outgrow them? Are you implying video games are for kids? If so, then that's okay because I'm a kid at heart. I don't want to grow up! Seriously though, I play games because they are fun. I like having fun.

Thanks for taking the time to answer our hard hitting questions! Any last words?

My only regret ... is that I have bonitis.

Luna is quickly becoming my nemesis. In Gears showdowns she always gets the first bullet in me as well as the last. I've tried to deal with this by fleeing and screaming like a four year old girl. It's at that point when my wife tells me to "stop running away like a giant... " (hint: rhymes with boondang).

The only revenge I can attempt is in another game. In Zombie Skate I'm convinced that if I run directly at her and chant, "Die, die, die..." the proximity voice will paralyze her in fear, thus allowing someone else to kill her (not me because clearly my weapons aren't made of schmoona-kryptonite). I'll let you all know how that turns out.

Crouton, you are quickly becoming one of my favorite goodjers to play with in GoW and zombie skate. You crack me up.

Weird. The one time I've played GoW with luna she was really quiet. It wasn't until I asked, "Who the heck is this schmoona guy on my team?" that I realized who lurked in my presense. Maybe she was sleepy. Or brooding.

Yes. It was getting to that point against me as well before I sent my 360 away in it's coffin. I am looking forward to resuming that trend asap.

Silent, but deadly!

Sad part is that it's the bird smoking you guys. Not bad for someone who doesn't have any thumbs.

I smell a ruse to bring my guard down, but I can't be sure. So, for your kind words, I'll just say, "thank you."... for now.

Indeed. Bring your guard down, so she can tag you with a grenade where the sun don't shine. Then she'll come back and chainsaw your kibbles and bits.

Aw, first Yoyo, then me, now on to Crouton. Luna is the black widow of Zombie Skate.

What do you mean, then you? Did I miss something? I was just going to put Crouton on the to-kill list, do I need to add you too?

No, there's no need, Yoyo. I think I missed something too. Thanks for being so protective. ^_^

I just meant you have a tendency to attract crosshairs.

Like a dancer and spotlights except the spot lights want to kill her because the dancer has the flag.

It's funny, just last night I was thinking I'd only been killed in GoW by luna via some wicked chainsawing (usually when I have absolutely no idea it's coming)...and then I was turned into gibblets by her Boomshot.

While I like her and all...well, let's just say I find it easier to like her when she's on MY team!

What if I give you a Baby Ruth, firesloth? Would you like me more?

Ooohhh....now, if you give me a Baby Ruth *and* be on my team you'll really be on my good side!

It's just that your kills are somehow more jarring than most. When you kill me in GoW, it's almost always the case that I don't even know you're there! With your kills, I'm standing around. I'm relaxed. If I smoked, I'd have a cigarette in my mouth...and then: I'm the flesh equivalent of woodchips.

Sigh...but, nonetheless, it's fun and a challenge to play with you!

Wait. I just realized that Luna's write-up was not 50% about how hawt she is, or how most male goodjers oogle her.

This thread is now null and void.

But I'm not hawt...

A.) You are married, which means one man thought you were worth it enough to give up his Supreme Freedom (which is the highest compliment), and B.) doesn't everyone give unending compliments when you post pictures? I remember the beach picture from your wedding. Everyone said it was stunning. Maybe they were talking about your bleached hair.

I've only posted one picture (the wedding one) and you can't even see my face. People must have been talking about my bleached hair (which is now bright red).

zero, are you shirking your manly responsibility to make luna feel hawt?

Just post some pics and we'll decide

Hey, a guy can only do so much. It's the man that's keeping my hot little lady down. Damn the man, damn the man I say!

She is lying though -- she's posted other pictures, and she knows it. She just doesn't want to spark the inevitable treasure hunt that would ensue should she admit it.

I know I've seen more than one picture just in passing. Heck, there's one in this thread! Add in the beach one she admits to, and that's two. Which is more than one. Unless I forgot how to count.

I'm just going to keep imagining her as Sarah Silverman anyway. Hottness.

She's just as hot, but in a different way, so that will probably work out all right.
