Hello, little foxes! Today I’m here to introduce you to the characters of Em Ali’s Graham’s Delicacies, a short story collection that follows their novella, Soft on Soft. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and think you will too!
Let’s do something fun! Everyone, introduce your love interest in three sentences or less!
Jen: They’re fucking adorable. Period. No need for more sentences.
James: He’s incredibly thoughtful, can make the best coffee, and falls asleep rewatching Marvel movies.
Alex: Yujin is the guy who can reach all of the high shelves. He’s really beautiful when he is working on a video and he’s an awesome snuggler.
What is your favorite food, and why?
James: I really like pizza.
Jen: My mom’s spaghetti!
Sam: I second Jen.
Emilie: I like breakfast foods! Waffles, pancakes, eggs, oh, oh, I like samosas, too!
Yujin: I refuse to choose.
Alex: I’d eat any kind of potato.
If you had a free day with nothing to do, what would you do?

If you could spend a day with someone you admire (alive, dead or fictional) who would it be?

What’s the most important trait to you in a friend or romantic partner?
What is your favorite emoji?
Jen: the PEACH emoji!
Yujin: I love the monkey emojis.
James: I don’t use emoji-
Sam: That’s a lie
James: BUT if I had to choose I’d go with the bashful ones.
Emilie: I adore the monkey emojis, but the cat emojis are superior. Sorry, Yujin!
Alex: Squid. Don’t ask why.
If someone were to name a cake after you, what flavor would it be and how would you decorate it?
Jen: It’d be vanilla! I love simplicity in taste. They’d decorate it with whipped cream!
Emilie: I’d be a cheesecake decorated with strawberries.
Yujin: Caramel banana cheesecake. Soft on the top and hard in the bottom.
What do you always keep on you?
Sam: A book. James has been selling me on the idea of an e-reader though.
