That's awesome. The human brain really is a very gullible, delicate thing, is it not?

I mean, I *remember* things I've done in character. Clearly as real memories. My brain has no way to tell the difference between what I imagined hard while I was playing and what I've lived through in 'real life'. One day, if (or more likely when) I go mad, my shrink is going to have their work cut out for them!

Mm, ditto. I find the emotions in particular I go through when I'm in character are absolutely "real" ...

By the way, you're Beaker, right? Scooter here *g*

Agreed! I've had numerous occasions where, for example, I had no real feelings on a subject, then played a character who did, and suddenly because passionate/obsessed myself about it. Emotional bootstrapping, in a way.
I guess there's a reason why they use roleplaying in therapy as a way to help people visualise and overcome problems.

And yup! I was Beaker! Your Scooter was very cool...I went out and got myself season 1 of the Muppet show when I got home, and now I can really see Scooter as a girl!

I still have the Deed we signed, in my "Awesome games I played at Conventions" folder :)

Yay! That rocks. And thanks, I had a blast that game. *g* I'm totally won over to the Con-side.

No problems. I consider this type of hijacking par for the course.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
