:D Haha Loved the sibling-bickering they have going on. Reminds me of hubby and I. When you have known each other for years, you just cant help calling them stuff xD

Questions questions. Oh yes:

1. What do you like/dislike about Vinnie? Do you think he is the right match for your brother? (if yes - why, if not - why again xD)

2. What do you do in your time off? (When you finally get time off from the business. Rarely probably, but it must happen sometimes)

For people who can't afford the Synth Process and have disabilities (such as neuromuscular conditions like Muscular Dystrophy) that prevent them from most types of employment, are there assistance options that they may seek? Options like SSI, Personal Care Assistants, and Medicaid?

For example: I use power wheelchairs due to Spinal Muscular Atrophy and need a PCA to help me with day-to-day needs that involves social interaction. How would DLC work for such social interaction?

JerrBear81 5th Jul 2015, 5:16 AM edit delete reply
I forgot to proofread to make sure that the questions were clearly understandable!

"For example: I use power wheelchairs due to Spinal Muscular Atrophy and need a PCA to help me with day-to-day needs that involves social interaction." should have said, "
For example: I use power wheelchairs due to Spinal Muscular Atrophy and need a PCA to help me with day-to-day needs, that also involves social interaction with whoever is helping me."

What job would you like to have, if you weren't running Cross Auto? Would it still be related to mechanics?

How old was Galvin when he came out and was this something you always knew, being his sister and all?

Are cars mainly an upper level thing? In low levels, it looks like people mostly walk or take public transit...
chris-tar 5th Jul 2015, 7:19 AM edit delete reply
What nationality are you?
Can you describe Galvin's accident?
What do you do after work?
Are you as good of a mechanic as Galvin?
What was growing up with Galvin like?
wineflask 5th Jul 2015, 8:42 AM edit delete reply
Is it hard to be a woman repairing cars? Do customers have gendered prejudices on your skills, or are such issues a thing of the past?

No question... just wanted to say I loved the subtle Aliens reference.

What's your favorite type of repair to do?
Do you enjoy watching your brother's games?
Andrew 5th Jul 2015, 1:28 PM edit delete reply
What's the largest vehicle/machine that is able to be repaired at Cross Auto? And if there is a limitation, is it do to a physical restraint (lack of proper tools/work space) or just from lack of skill (larger vehicles having components that you have not the knowledge to work with)?
Jestana 5th Jul 2015, 2:42 PM edit delete reply
How big an age gap is there between you and Galvin? Does it feel like that gap is bigger or smaller at times?
thejazband 5th Jul 2015, 3:47 PM edit delete reply
Does society still hold prejudices against gender and sexuality? With reference to you as a female mechanic, and Gavin as a gay man.
Belladonna 5th Jul 2015, 5:01 PM edit delete reply
Have you always wanted to be your own boss, and does it eat up your free time/impact on your social life, more than the DLC issues do? ie, do you even have time to socialise and date, what with running a business and making your own place in the world?
Kat 5th Jul 2015, 5:02 PM edit delete reply
We've heard a bit about your father, would you be willing to tell us a little about your mother?

Since you repair guys always seem to know best, I'm in the market for a good used vehicle. What are my different options and which would you recommend?
Guest 5th Jul 2015, 6:56 PM edit delete reply
What to ask... Well, Since there's such a (Financial) Taboo on relationships anyway, has things like homophobia died down over the years? Or nudity taboos? Does looking at a naked person count as an "Interaction" and is charged? Also, are there any plans to try and repair the damage the impact caused, like Desert Greening? (Sorry for so many questions, but your story really gets me thinking!)

Has there been any rebellions against this DLC thing? What kind of weapons do the law enforcement of Hyperion City have that can make people not rebel? Also, if a rebellion happens soon, will you, Gavin, or the others join it?

Hi Mackie. What do you think of the members of Gavin's Strikeball team? What are your final thoughts on your first trip to the Wastelands?

Did you go to something like a High School prom? Or are those things no longer popular in your time because of the money factor?

I see a lot of good questions here that I hope end up getting answered, and several that can be found right on the cast page >.< I'll keep it short and sweet with a single question.

Mackie, with a struggling shop, what kinds of thoughts keep you going every day in these difficult times? It must be more than just Galvin's support.
Lizzy B 6th Jul 2015, 4:58 AM edit delete reply
Hey, Mackie! As a fellow younger sister, I'm curious. What's it like having a dingus like Galvin as a brother?
FrostTiger 6th Jul 2015, 6:09 AM edit delete reply
You're pretty awesome for your dedication and patience.
Are there any hijinks you and Galvin are partial to in your free time?
DraconicSoul 6th Jul 2015, 10:13 AM edit delete reply
are you a wild Prankster sometimes? as in whenever Galvin gets his scooter workin...in the middle of the night you would sneak out with it and take it for a spin?

So, Mackie! Give us the down and dirty on your bro! Tell us one thing that he would never admit to!

What was it like growing up with Gavin?
John 6th Jul 2015, 1:21 PM edit delete reply
Hi Mackie!

Um, just a few questions. I noticed Galvin paying your rent. I gather he does that a lot. Does he do that because the auto-shop is struggling financially?
Following from that, would Galvins full-time assistance make it more profitable?

Completely seperate question; any prospects on the romantic horizen for you?
Draginbeard 6th Jul 2015, 1:29 PM edit delete reply
Well, I am looking forward to the answer part, all the questions I wanted to ask are already up there.

Jason Wolfe 6th Jul 2015, 11:40 PM edit delete reply
so this is my first time asking my question so im a little nervous ^^;

I think my question is What kind of movies do you like? we know that your brother is a big fan of horror movies, but what about you? what's your favorite movie genre?
