Player Photograph by High Countess Emily

September 21st, 2008 12:00 AM

INSTRUCTIONS: The first task reads: "Take a picture of yourself. " This is the only time a sous rature gesture will be made, so let us remind you: you may be your character, but your character need not be you.

I spent quite a while trying to figure out how to differentiate between taking a picture of me the player and taking a picture of me the character, not to mention trying to figure out which the task actually called for. For a long time I was stuck trying to figure out how my character might look different from my player. Finally, I realized that this wasn't such a puzzle after all. Thanks to the many avatar generators/doll makers/etc online, whose sole purpose is clearly to allow for which-of-my-friends-is-this guessing games, I've seen my own "character" plenty of times. So here we have a picture of the character, and of the player posing as the character:

I must admit, I was tempted to add you as a friend after seeing your photo and your completion of bigger, better, and more bizarre, but did not because i feel creepy doing so. You, however, invited me to friendship anyways! Yayyys!

Also: I totally visited amsterdam while living in switzerland 2 years ago. colour me jealous. =]

I still like this player photo. :) (And that the main page will often bring me back to tasks that I'd forgotten about)
