Since A. S. Phyxia won the interview poll, I will be writing down her interview below. Remember, the general public is not aware of her criminal activities, but rumours and speculations on the subject abound. The following interview is done from the perspective of Vyxen, a fashion/tabloid magazine which is very popular in Glenmetropolis. Without further ado, here goes:
Ladies and gentlemen, we here at Vyxen Magazine had the pleasure, this past Friday, to interview one of the world's foremost fashion designers of the decade, Ashley Suzan Phyxia. Vyxen's own editor in chief Pugg Denning conducts the interview. Here's how it went down:
: You're welcome, dear! I'm happy to take a break, actually.
: Glad to hear it! Miss Phyxia, you've been living in Glenmetropolis for close to a decade now. Do you ever miss the UK?
: I can't say I miss it so much as it represents my past. Some of it good, some of it, well, like *points to her hair* this right here... So it's more or less mixed feelings. I'm proud to be a Brit, but I couldn't say I'd move back tomorrow, given the opportunity.
: Hmmm, I see. Speaking of your hair, I have to point out, "A. S. Phyxia"... has anyone ever denoted the "predestined" pun?
: So, you consider your hair a handicap?
: Ah, yes, the trial [referencing the Province of Québec vs. Ashley Suzan Phyxia trial in 2009, where miss Phyxia was accused of deliberately polluting the air while seated at non-smoking sections in restaurants. Our readers will remember that miss Phyxia was acquitted, her lawyers proving that unless she lights an actual cigarette, she is not considered to be smoking by the Law and therefore, couldn't be accused of any crime. The court even stated her hair to be "a handicap beyond the defendant's control"]. Are you happy with the court's decision?
: Some say you bought your way out of the trial. Do y-
: Oh, come now, Pugg. Everytime a wealthy business leader goes on trial, the world is ready to put the invention of the Endzeit-serum [used during World War II as a means of torture] on their shoulders! Money doesn't mean someone's a criminal, it just means they succeeded where many others failed.
: Sure, but there have been many more rumours about you.
: Rumours make the world go 'round, darling *winks*.
: And half of my pay check! *Miss Phyxia and I laugh* Seriously, though. Some people claim you might be paying the government to turn a blind eye on some shady business manoeuvres The Phyxia Corporation would be caught in. Care to comment on that?
: This coming from a rich heiress to begin with. I'm not saying I don't agree with your message, but I guess I can see where some would point out a measure of "hypocrisy" in that speech.
: Oh, Pugg, dear. My father's money is nothing compared to the money The Phyxia Corporation makes. Last year, our first quarter profits alone were three times higher than my inheritance! And I achieve this kind of success by giving it my all, and nothing else!
: Of course, of course. Switching gears, let's speak of your love life. Rumour has it you've been dating F.L.O.O.D. agent Christopher Zachlin, also known as Kingsaim. Care to-
: *Laughs hysterically* Oh, ho ho ho now, THAT'S rich! Thanks for the laugh, Pugg, I really needed that! ...Oh, you're actually SERIOUS?! Ha! No, no, I can assure you ladies, Chris Zachlin is still on the market, with his ridiculous hair and action-figure antics! *Laughs once more* I haven't heard anything this ludicrous since I was accused of corporate blackmail!
: I'm guessing this means the rumours aren't founded then! Does this mean there's someone else in your life?
: *Still chuckling* Hmm, ahem. That's... well, that's not entirely true, nor false.
: Please, do elaborate! We might get a Vyxen exclusive right here!
: Let's just say I'm... *after a long hesitation* emotionally unavailable, at the moment.
: How very mysterious. But, I respect your right to privacy. Moving on - Our readers have been asking about your goals. What are they? What does A. S. Phyxia aspire to accomplish, to be?
: Oh, my. So many things! I would like the New Beginnings foundation to become a worldwide organization, as well as elevating The Phyxia Corporation to the top of the Fortune 500. I would LOVE to buy one of those uncharted islands in the Atlantic... Then again, there's always the idea of building a mansion in the French alps. Oh, and learn French! I've been taking classes, even!
: Really? Care to give us an example?
: Sure. *With a heavy English accent* Je suis assise sur le chaise... Wait, is it "le chaise" or "la chaise"? As you can see, there's a lot of room for improvement.
: That was actually quite good. Is your secret lover the one teaching you French?
: You can't blame me for trying, it's my job after all! Let's move on to flash questions - What's your favourite food?
: Grilled lobster tail with chive ricotta gnocchi. Absolutely divine!
: Sounds quite fancy. Favourite drink?
: ...Alcoholic, or otherwise?
: Either and/or both.
: Then I have to go with the Pink Flamingo. Especially on the beach.
: Favourite way to unwind?
: Television. I don't have time for much else.
: Favourite type of music?
: Jazz and classical.
: Favourite season?
: Winter! I love the city around Christmas and New Year's Day especially!
: It is a merry season indeed. Favourite colour?
: Pink. I'm such a cliché...
: And finally, favourite interviewer?
: Well, that wraps up the interview miss Phyxia! Hope you had a good time.
: Splendid, even! Thanks for having me.
: My pleasure, thank you for accepting the invitation!
