zmediaoutlet asked for Tolkien & Austen, and King if you like

J.R. Tolkien: What is your favorite magical creature? - Individual magical creature? Probably Jewel the unicorn from The Last Battle. Having a unicorn best friend would be pretty rad. Favorite species? Griffons, maybe? I really liked Diana Wynn Jones' duology starring them (Dark Lord of Derkholm / Year of the Griffon, although I think she might spell it differently). And they don't have the same collection of cliches as dragons and unicorns in general, etc.

Jane Austen: What social faux-pas annoys you the most? - When people won't take a subtle hint and leave, geeze. You've been here for 6 hours, it's 10 PM, and I need time to unwind before I can go to sleep. Also, I've been yawning every five minutes for the last half hour and have slouched down far enough on the couch that I'm practically horizontal. Next step is to hold up a sign reading "this is your cue to say goodnight and go".

Stephen King: What kind of curse would most effectively punish you for disrespecting the sanctity of some Native American burial grounds? - Hm. A 100% deadly black thumb, so that I can no longer grow any plants or keep pets (potentially transferring over to children as well, which really would be terrible).
