Interview – Jackson Brothers (Dark Fire)

Questions adapted from

Part I: Let’s Start at the Beginning…

1. What are your names?

Joel: I’m Joel and this my brother Lucas


2. Give me your full name…

Joel: *Scowls* Joel Jackson

Lucas: And I am Lucas Jackson


3. What species are you? (Human, werewolf, etc? Or are you an alien?)

Lucas: Extremely human

Joel: Although we can’t say the same about eighty percent of the company we keep


4. I see. And your age…?

Joel: 23

Lucas: 19


5. Okay, now…are you a good guy, or a bad guy?

Joel: *Grins* Depends on what day of the week it is

Lucas: *Rolls eyes* Definitely good guys

Joel: Not if you’re a demon…

Lucas: No, not if you are a demon


Part II: Tell Us More About Yourself…

6. Would you say you’re someone who can handle pressure?

Lucas: I should hope so, it’s pretty much a daily occurrence. Especially, having Joel as a brother

Joel: Hey, I resent that *Punches Lucas in the arm*

Lucas: *Rubs arm* Oh it’s not true?

Joel: I still resent it


7. Favourite colour?

Joel: Black

Lucas: *Gives his brother an incredulous look* Black? Really?

Joel: What’s wrong with black? What’s yours? Pink?

Lucas: Blue

Joel: *Scoffs* Predictable


8. Do you get along with others?

Joel: I can be quite charming when I want to be

Lucas: We’re really great guys–we fight for the forces of good *smirks*


9. Do you have any enemies?

*Both laugh*

Lucas: Yes, a lot

Joel: We’ve killed a lot of demons. Makes ‘em hate us


10. How about friends?

Lucas: Being our friend is kinda lethal

Joel: They usually end up dead. My best friend was eaten by a werewolf


11. Are you patient?

Joel: Yes

Lucas: *Gasps* You are not!

Joel: Yes I am!

Lucas: Oh okay, so how come when we were staking out that vampire nest in Seattle you lasted about three seconds before you were charging in guns blazing

Joel: I got bored waiting

Lucas: That’s exactly what we’re talking about!


Part III: Hypothetically…

12. Suppose you could become any creature you know of. What would you pick, and why?

Joel: A wolf – no, a dragon

Lucas: *Laughs* You’ve been watching too much Game of Thrones

Joel: Yeah, but deny the awesomeness… see? You can’t

Lucas: I’d be a lion. Lions are badass and they’re hunters, just like us


13. One of your enemies in question 13 just complimented you. Response?

Lucas: Stick a knife in their heart. A demon complimenting me isn’t going to stop me from killing it


14. One of your friends in Question 14 just insulted you. Response?

Joel: Stick a knife in their heart. *Holds hands up laughing* I’m joking


15. If you could change anything about yourself…

Joel: I’d be more patient. Because apparently it is something I’m lacking

Lucas: I wish I hadn’t said anything. Now he’s going to be sulking for days about it


Part IV: Now We Get Personal

16. What’re your parents like?

Lucas: They were amazing, beautiful people

Joel: Yeah, and badass demon hunters too


17. Do you have any siblings?

*Exchange a glance*

Joel: *Clears throat* Apart from each other, obviously, we had a sister. Kayla. She was older. She died *looks down*


18. Are you seeing/dating anyone?

Joel: Nope, young, free and single

Lucas: I was in a relationship, but it ended…she left. Doing what we do, it’s not easy to date

Joel: You’re better off

Lucas: Joel

Joel: I’m just saying

Lucas: Well don’t, just drop it

Joel: *Holds up hands* Fine, fine. It’s dropped


19. Thinking about getting engaged, married, other?

Joel: Considering my previous answer-no

Lucas: No


20. Tell us your biggest secret.

Lucas: Monsters are real

Joel: Once, I think it was in Detroit, we got the last one-bed room in this skeezy motel. I lied about hurting my back so I could take the bed

Lucas: *Looks at Joel* Are you serious?

Joel: *Shrugs* Sorry


21. Your worst fear?

Joel: Them winning

Lucas: Demons?

Joel: Yeah, the darkness. We fight it every day and the thought of losing and it taking over terrifies me

Lucas: Mine is one of us getting killed and leaving the other behind  

Joel: So it’s okay if they kill both of us?

Lucas: *Rolls eyes* You know what I mean

Joel: Yeah, I getcha. But if they kill us, they win, so I had it covered with my answer. Oh and being possessed, I’d hate to be violated like that, have one of those things inside me, controlling me *shudders*


22. Tell us one thing you’re the most proud of.

Lucas: Obviously I will never hear the end of this–and after hearing about the Detroit motel thing he no longer deserves it–but seeing the way Joel steps up to any situation makes me proud to be his brother

Joel: *Beams* Ah thanks bro. Not to be too gross with the cheese factor but I’m proud to be your brother too


23. Something embarrassing?

Joel: You mean apart from that last question? *Claps his hands together excitedly*

Lucas: I don’t know why you’re looking so pleased with yourself. I have waaaay more stories about you

Joel: *Looks worried* Like what? Wait, don’t answer that–next question  


Part V: Closing

24. Are you satisfied with your life?

Lucas: Yes. We help people. Fighting evil and making the world a better place is what we are meant to do

Joel: I agree. It’s a tough gig but totally worth it


25. Anything you feel like you have to do? It can be something long-term, like a bucket list, or something you need to do right now.

Lucas: I’d like to travel more. I mean, we’ve travelled all over the US, but I’d like to see more of the rest of the world

Joel: That sounds cool. I’d like to meet the president. I’m ninety-five percent sure he’s a demon *smirks*


26. Your personal quote?

Joel: Your only limit is you

Lucas: Ooh that sounds rad!

Joel: I know, right? I just thought of it

Lucas: Think of one for me

Joel: All right, hang on *thinks for a moment* How about, ‘Don’t limit your challenges, challenge your limits’? 

Lucas: Yes! *High fives Joel*


27. Do you like change?

Lucas: Nothing in our world stays the same for long

Joel: It doesn’t matter if we like it or not, it’s just how it is. We need to be ready for anything


28.What’s your most valued possession?

Joel: My gun. Whether it’s regular or silver bullets, it’s got me out of plenty of scrapes

Lucas: Same. And my laptop


29. Anything else you feel like sharing?

Joel: Nope. Are we done? We really should be out there

Lucas: Demons to kill, people to save… 


30. Okay fine, last question!… What advice would you give yourself?

Joel: Shoot first, ask questions later

Lucas: *Laughing* That’s horrible advice!

Joel: *Chuckles*


That’s it! How do you feel?

Joel: Like I need to get wasted

Lucas: *Smiles politely* Thanks
