While you are certainly the brightest crayon in the box, you're not necessarily the sharpest. Nevertheless, your natural charm and compassion bring people flocking to your side. Things may not always go your way, and you don't do well under pressure, but everyone loves you anyway.
Cool and calculating, you are happy to control events from the shadows. Though you are considerate of others, you are always ready to take advantage of opportunities, and are reluctant to do anything in which you see no profit. You make it a point to find out everything you need to know about anything and more.
Hikaru & Kaoru
You are the evil twin. Though you're always ready to please the crowd, and do many things to see people's reactions, in your mind, other people exist for your entertainment. Nevertheless, your cleverness and creativity enable you to be a great force for good, should you so choose.
One of the few who realize the truly enormous power of cuteness, you use yours to its full potential. Sometimes this causes problems, as people are so blinded by your adorableness that they fail to see how capable you are in other areas. Perceptive and sometimes manipulative, you usually use your powers for good, and can be a great comfort to others. Your weakness is dessert.
The strong, silent type, you are always ready to protect those close to you. You are very loyal and have a traditional sense of values. Possessed of a strong sense of responsibility, you aren't afraid to admit when you're wrong. You put your friends' welfare ahead of your own and are willing to be the badguy if it means helping them.
You are the rock of common sense in a turbulent sea of insanity. You are very reasonable and tend to ask questions in order to more fully understand the situations you yourself sometimes thrown into. Though you often get caught up in your friends' crazy schemes, somehow you manage to stay calm and practical, if somewhat annoyed.
Second, there was a pretty interesting follow-up story to when we posted the Host Quiz on the internet for all to see. We got an email from a quiz-taker who was incensed (incensed!) that we just grouped Hikaru and Kaoru together. Don't we know that they're both individuals! Just because they're twins doesn't mean they're the same person! How could you!
...It may not have been that excited. But we thought it was pretty cute, and highly amusing. We were happy to see people standing up for twins, and we thanked her for her email. We also explained that, as identical twins ourselves, we totally understand where she's coming from, but in this particular quiz, all of their answers would have been the same anyway. The thing about twins is while they are two different people, sometimes (like with us and the Hitachiins) they really do have a lot in common. We suggested that maybe someday we would make a "Which Hitachiin are you?" quiz...but we never got around to it, mainly because we wanted to read the manga first (make sure we had as clear an idea of the characters as we could get) and we had other things to do. And then we forgot about it, and there you have it. It would take some time to figure out what kind of a scenario would have them acting differently...or maybe it wouldn't, because we'd just have to separate them. Hmmm...
Well, we might think about it.
Today I'm thankful for people who understand that just because they're twins doesn't mean they're the same person, the super cute puppy and kitty on our calendar for April, finishing work today in time to do stuff before going out, getting to read manga yesterday, and having plans to play a lot of Kingdom Hearts tomorrow.
