Just had this thought...
Don't people usually fantasize in the absence of real people? Like, just being alone for long stretches, or having nothing to do, or not being very social? Aren't these good reasons to fantasize?
I usually get very specific ideas when I do imagine characters or people I would like to know. So, this concept of involving other people and pretending that are something they really aren't confuses me a lot at times. It's even worse if the person can't even make-believe very well themselves or enguage in a real kind of play. How in the world am I supposed to suppress this huge amount of info my mind and body is giving me?
I'll gladly play along with someone if they themselves are also playful. I can even see glimmers of their character in their personality. I love that stuff. In contrast to this, I've know some that just make ZERO effort at being playful or fun. It's a huge let down when you look forward to it. Some people can do more to spoil a good fantasy than help it.
I remember the reasons I got into liking furry, and it wasn't much about sharing it with other people. I know...that sounds bad, but eh, being 13 you sure as hell don't want to appear freakishly different from anybody else right? I just look back at that...then I look at this....insanely large internet thing of today and I think..how did this happen?
But on a positive note, I also am curious about other people's fantasies too. What some artists have drawn really gives me some great little scenarios to play around with in my head. I hope I do the same for others.
