Will Esmi Cause Mandati/Warrior-Prophet Drama? posted 14 December 2006 in The Thousandfold ThoughtWill Esmi Cause Mandati/Warrior-Prophet Drama? by Lucimay, Subdidact

Isn't it funny how we can dialouge about people who aren't even real? <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->


We all realize that these characters are fake



how are they &quot;not real&quot; or &quot;fake&quot;?

oh. you mean they don't live in bodies?

so...if you don't inhabit a body you're not real?

oh. wait. you mean they are &quot;constructions&quot; of the author.

but...author, persona, character.

if the author, who lives in a body, uses a persona to create a character, isn't the character real?

gotta get nit-picky here cause i think they (the characters) are worth talking about, in a real sense. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

not being a smartypants...just validating the conversation as a real conversation about real things. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

don't forget, when you're talking about them, that they all have purpose.
character function.

if you want to know what Esmi is going to do...figure out what her character function is. who is she? how does who she is serve the story? view post
