When you're talking to people IRL, how do you refer to your toons?
I got caught saying to my girlfriend "...since none of Amava's friends were on, I switched to an alt and..." She got a chuckle out of it and brought it to my attention that I'm discussing my toon in the third person, as if Amava were an entity unto herself.
Seems that I refer to Amava and her antics that way. At least sometimes. I think it mainly comes out when discussing the social aspect of the game.
When Amava leads in the Damage Meter, without unnecessarily pulling aggro or doing other naughty things, those exploits get spoken of in the first person, as Amava's daddy takes great pride in that and wants the credit :-)
Also fashion. While I am somewhat indifferent with regards to colors and appearances, Amava simply adores purples and dark reds.
Then you've got other schools of thought, such as BRK's royal "we" used to refer to his toon and pet Hobbes combined/unified opinions, performances, and experiences.
Funny how we all develop our own strange warped sense of identity with our toons. That's a big part of what keeps this game interesting. And keeps the people close to us IRL wondering just how thin our thread of sanity is.
