You crazy kids and your online relationships


Finally, you're going to meet the person you've been developing feelings for. Aren't you excited?

Wait. What?

Well, it may be silly to say that, but you really never have seen them before. The two of you have communicated - extensively, actually - through means other than face to face. Typing via the internet, a sole parchment, letters, smoke signals, telepathy, words spoken through a crack in a fence, whatever your poison, you've struck up a bond through it. Companionship, definitely. Friendship, certainly...and maybe even more. Now, whether through planning or through complete accident, you're teaming up in person.

So, are you ecstatic to be around them after only talking for so long? Ready to let your emotions out and confess how they've made you feel? Hoping this meeting doesn't come to pass and they don't realize who you are because you've been fudging some details about yourself? Maybe this whole friendship started on a farce, but how you've come to think of them is absolutely real.

What to do, what to do? You have to admit, things were so much easier before you met them, despite how much you've come to lo-like them.

( my favorite concept for this is that miwako is interested in something no one would expect someone who looks like her to be into - true crime, russian literature, muscle cars, sci fi, anything really - and goes onto an internet forum to discuss it in secret. while posting, she grows close to another user and they fall in love...all while never swapping pictures.

they've decided to meet, leaving miwako nervous that she'll be rejected or judged by her appearance. how your character react is up to you. are her fears founded? are they so enamoured with her "true self" that looks don't matter?

for the canon unfamiliar, miwako's a 20something lolita - as in the fashion, not the nymphet variety - with a penchant for free love and speaking in third person, though she probably types normally as her forum persona. open to older and younger characters from any canon and medium. )
