1. He has barely one single original thought in his head.
Mickey is an amalgamation of nerves, pop culture references and things his parents and elders told him off for. He needs direction in absolutely every aspect of his life and without someone to follow just sort of mills around like a lost sheep. He can't seem to make up his mind without someone there to help make it for him; therefore he can make some extremely dickish decisions based on whoever it is pulling the strings.
2. He was jailed briefly for a combination of minor offences.
His month-long incarceration period is one he doesn't like to talk about. Ever.
3. He's never had a girlfriend.
But really, who's surprised. Mickey has become used to the complete and utter disinterest (and often lashings of pepper spray) shown by the opposite sex, to the point where he barely recognises girls for being objects of affection beyond 'oi she's pretty, wonder if she has food'
4. His parents and siblings are all of highly above-average intelligence.
Seriously they have no idea what happened.
5. He is a boldfaced liar.
His base defence against any allegation is naturally to deny the fuck out of it, regardless of any evidence to the contrary.
6. He hates when people are upset with him.
He's perfectly okay with making people angry, because he tends to do it on a regular basis no matter what, but being around anyone he's honsetly hurt or upset turns him into a blubbery mess.
7. Children make him anxious.
Many people think his 'childlike nature' would make him good with children, or at least able to relate to them, but no. In his experience, children are right little bastards and they're also entirely too breakable for his liking.
8. He eats like an army.
Mickey will not stop eating until either he's told, or the food runs out. While he isn't exactly in top shape, the amount of food he takes in compared to his size and the amount of exercise he DOESN'T do should have made him gigantic by this point, but a particularly enviable metabolism and the fact that he generally prefers munching on fruit to most other food out there keeps this from becoming an issue.
9. He doesn't fare well with intimidating figures.
Mickey isn't hard to manipulate, but if you stand on something that makes you taller than him and shout in his face at a close enough range he will do absolutely anything you tell him to, in a jittery 'YES'M' kind of way.
10. His favourite movie is and has always been The Neverending Story.
Except he don't like the bits where there's the big wolf an' he's all lookin' out from the woods an' the bricks an' that.
11. The way to Mickey's heart (lolstolen! :devselenedragon: :heart:)
Mickey is not the type of boy who really gets crushes, and he's DEFINITELY not the type to act on them when he does. Deep emotional involvement with women has just never been a priority/likelihood for him. The unfortunate fact of the matter is the easiest way to Mickey's heart is to not only want him around but NEED him to be there, and most people need a friend like Mickey like they need a second asshole. There's always going to be an underlying paranoia about any pretty girl giving him attention, even in a relationship if it happened, unless he has something to base the fact that she'd want to date him on that isn't in some way related to a swindle. Ergo, romance for Mickey is a stressful, bothersome and alltogether too-hard concept to juggle along with all the other difficulties of life.
12. He's a moron and a pain, but he's never been a loner.
Mickey is the sort of person who always seemed to have at least one or two close male friends throughout primary and highschool. This is partially due to his instinct to latch onto people and worm into their good graces, but it's also because he can be an extremely fun person to have around. Mickey attracts trouble without even having to try and almost every second thing he says is narded enough to be funny, so while he was never one with the girls he bonded well with male friends; just never seemed to have any that went the distance from high school onward.
13. His helmet
It's a stackhat his father used when playing hockey. Mickey uses it when riding his pushbike, which was abandoned when a dire need to piss struck him while passing a local university. (DUN DUN DUN) It doesn't quite fit, but he's fond of it - despite his father's desperate attempts to convince him that having it fall in his eyes all the time when biking is a BAD IDEA - and now considers it his number one defence against the undead outbreak. That, and Sydney. The helmet is a large part of why people generally consider him to be literally handicapped on sight, not just a dumbfuck.
14. He's missing his three back right-side molars.
Mishap with a baseball bat. It's hard to see unless he opens wide enough to deliberately show you.
15. Recreational substance abuse
Mickey is a big fan of the let's-see-what-we-can-find-under-the-sink-I-can-shove-up-my-nose-coz-I-ain't-got-no-money game is all I'm gonna say.
16. Very slow to anger.
It is very, VERY hard to get Mickey seriously pissed off. If his loved ones are threatened he's generally more likely to beg desperately than go on the defensive, he has no major sticking points or moral ground, he backs off from fights easily, and he's completely unbothered by the notion of people touching his stuff. In general he's fairly passive. When he IS mad, however, it's more of a sulk than anything.
17. He likes drawing.
And weirdly enough he's not bad at it. His subject matter is always smacktarded though.
18. He hasn't had blonde hair for at least five years now.
He has some wicked regrowth, though. He's just gotten used to having crappy faded dye in his hair. He's also not very fond of people messing with or otherwise touching his hair, regardless of how it may need the attention.
19. He knows he's dumb.
Trust me, he is very much aware of this fact. He's at least smart enough to know that he doesn't know jack, and that it isn't going to change anytime soon, so stupid comments generally tend to roll off his back. Unless they're really really really mean omg baws.
20. 20 facts is fucking lots
Jesus guys seriously this is hard
