Hi guys. Just joined, and I have to say that this is an awesome idea.

1) My character is a sort-of furry, in the sense that she did not *choose* to be furry but she has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (After her sister [To whom she is very close.] got attacked by a wolf.) and it chooses to manifest itself by having her do wolf-esque things. (Example: She sniffs everyone she meets.) Is there a name for this (Furries who didn't choose to be furry)? Or would you simply label her as furry. Also, if she was committed to an asylum, would they list "Furry" (Is there a proper word for a furry?) as part of her diagnoses?

2) A character like River on Firefly. Would she be labeled "clinically insane"? (I realixe her brain was cut to ribbons. I'm referring as if she didn't get damaged, she was just born that way. Maybe a better example is Drusilla off of Buffy the Vampire Slayer?) (More context: River and Drusilla tend to speak in riddles/nonsense. [Example of speech: {Using Drusills, 'cause she actually is nuts, not broken} "Do you like daisies? Hmm? I plant them, but they always die. Everything I put in the ground withers and dies."])

3) I need a name of a town in Virginia that has roughly 98,000 people.

4) (In the U.S.) My character beat a girl to death in a heat-of-the-moment type of thing. What would she be charged with? (1st, 2nd or 3rd degree murder/manslaughter.) Which has the most jail-time? Which has the least? (I know now it would be manslaughter. Just need time they'd do.)

5) Is sadism a mental disorder? What are some symptoms?

6) Is being obsessed with someone a mental disorder? What would they call it? (More Context: Who my character is obsessed with is her sister. She would kill for her without bating an eyelash and wants her sister to have no other friends except her. Her sister is said clinical lycanthrope, and also nuts, so she depends on her sister to be her guide to the world.)


Thanks guys!

(Also, just for future knowledge, are there any sites out there that will translate English into romanized Mandarin for free?

ETA: Thanks for all your help! Two more to go.
ETA 2: Sorry for the weird numbering. I have mad typing skillz.
ETA 3: Fixed it so I have the questions again. Fixed the weird numbering though
ETA 4: Apprently *didn't* fix weird numbering but I have now. With question 4 I got "sadism" and "sociopathy" confused, which just goes to show how warped I am.
ETA 5: Added more context to #2.
