Who am I? by Sonic-Toad Who am I? by Sonic-Toad
So this was that weird sorta emotional dream I was talkin about in my journal.

Every part of this i remember so clearly in my dream, except the part when I describe myself with my OC's. NO LIE.

That part I thought about when I actually woke up. Cuz... the me in my dream did pause for a bit to think, and then replied with the answer in the comic. So it actually got me thinking...... Who really am I? As I started writing down my thoughts, it occurred to me that I was pretty much describing my characters haha. I knew that I created them based on parts of my own personality... kind, calm, charming, adventurous, energetic, sarcastic, cowardly, and courageous... but I didn't realize HOW MUCH of myself are in each one of them... or at least how i imagine them to be haha. Though James and Alexander were built on my more negative traits, that doesn't mean they don't have any good in them by the way haha, just leaves room for more character development!

But anyway, after the way I remembered this dream so vividly, I knew I had to do something with it. It was fun describing the good and bad traits about myself! Try it sometime! Dreams are always crazy!

....btw this totally felt like a Persona moment.... analyzing myself and writing down my pros and cons. HATE admitting stuff like that, but it was necessary!

All characters belong to me! including myself! :iconsonic-toad:

:tears: So beautifu. I love how you described yourself and used your descriptions and traits to relate to your characters. The way you described yourself also described me in better ways than I ever could. You see, I've been feeling depressed lately and I was starting to lose hope. This just cheered me up. This made my day. What you wrote here is something that motivational speekers strive to accomplish. You were able to put your thoughts out all on one document and you did a super job doing so. Thank you so much. :lonely:

Wow. That was really epic. What an amazing dream! I'm proud of you for putting this up too. And despite our constant sarcastic bickering..I've got your back. And so does everyone else in our little (possibly insane) group of college kids. Never be afraid to rely on us for anything.

Ray Bradbury once said that he discovered that names he gave to his characters in "Farenheit 451" were subconciously chosen. Maybe the character personalities were created by subconcious choices.

OH LAWDY, I think I understood this pic even more than everyone else because I went and had this playing in the background as I read the part where you thought about your OC's: [link] DEM FEELS MAN! DEM FEEEEEELLLSSS!!!
You were thrown into the TV World and rescued by the Investigation Squad, weren't you? haha.

But in all seriousness, this comic is totally epic. I really like this idea. It's like you discovered yourself without even having to face your shadow self! And I've semi-gotten to experience the personality traits you've talked about, even if it is over the internet.
When I begin to doubt myself, I still refer back to that 'incident' between us towards the end of last year, and I continue to believe in the faith you have in me. That note keeps reminding me how much potential I can have, and how strong our "Social Link" is (lol, so many Persona references). I made a total ass of myself and you still accept me and forgave me! I guess that's the Milo and Jennette coming out in you, haha.
There's nothing wrong with being born without anger. And I mean, it's of course not true. Your anger is just a different "sort" of anger. You don't rage at people; you can expereince anger in many different ways! It just so happens yours is more calm and un-scornful, if ya get me.
And trust me, not having confidence to lead is something you share with a lot of people! The world has its leaders and its followers. Being a leader takes certain criteria, and there's nothing wrong with people who don't fit that criteria! Without teams, nothing would get done. And there would be no teams with only leaders!

Hmmm... I think there's more I want to say, but I can't seem to put into words at this point. I'm heading to work, so maybe it'll come to me while I'm there, haha.
But anyway, I love this comic! It's everything I thought it was going to be since the point when you first mentioned it, lol.
