Will Shadow: Apocalypse Enthusiast

Will Shadow stands in front of a huge mass of people, describing in great detail what he believes the Apocalypse will be.  “And then, after the 200th famine and the second complete devastation of all human-built infrastructure, all the cats will die.”  Although he had previously described many shocking incidents that had caused several members of his parish to adopt nihilistic points of view, this was the only time during his speech when he looked unhappy.

After convincing several more people to give up all hope, Shadow decides to drift through the crying and despairing crowds to answer some questions.  After waiting for several seconds, he notices that a small cat is wandering around.  When he leans down to pet the cat, he notices a small piece of paper on the ground.  Thinking that it would be someone’s thoughts on his speech, he picks it up.  Instead, he finds a questionnaire, which he quickly writes answers on:

Name (any nicknames!)  If you have a nickname, where did it originate from?

Favorite Quote and Bible Verse?

Romans 8:31-39.

I want to lead worship for a leading pastor such as Louie Giglio, or get the chance to meet big worship influencers like Chris Tomlin or The Gettys.

Halitosis, because it’s just fun to say.  Try it.  Say it with different accents right now.

I’m very much a cat person. There’s no reason, except that they’re just really cute and I love them.

Favorite subject, and why?

Probably math, because it’s all logical and step-by-step with my guessing.

Fiction or non-fiction?  Why do you like one of them more?

Fiction, because it’s more compelling and interesting to read of things that couldn’t really happen, and the author makes an imaginative universe.

Once, when I was really young, I wandered off from my family at the zoo and ended up past all the guards, out the gate, and across the street before my parents found me.

Which holiday is your favorite?  Was there a specific incident in your life that influenced your preference?

I’ve always lived Christmas because our whole family gathers together with each other.

Not really, music is my passion, and that’s pretty much all there is about me.
