This story is between those who are relevant and no one else.
It’s strange how gut feelings finally work out in the end.
I basically accidentally called you out as an RP right from the start.
And another instance of how you’d basically told me the truth in a way I never imagined.

[31/12/2012 0:15:49] Mark: But I swear, this is going to be so annoying. It’s like another RP blog of yours.
[31/12/2012 0:16:01] Ellie Lou: [pat pat pat]
[31/12/2012 0:16:13] Ellie Lou: It is, in fact, another RP blog, but you don’t have to follow.
[31/12/2012 0:16:19] Ellie Lou: Just telling you where to find me when I disappear.
[31/12/2012 0:18:54] Mark: Oh yeah, I missed that line.
[31/12/2012 0:19:22] Ellie Lou: NO, I LIKED THE PART WHERE YOU CALLED ME ANNOYING DO IT AGAIN.
[31/12/2012 0:19:25] Ellie Lou: XD
[31/12/2012 0:22:04] Mark: I never understand OC RP blogs, tbh.
Unless you’re writing something.
[31/12/2012 0:22:42] Ellie Lou: DON’T YOU HAVE RP BLOGS?
[31/12/2012 0:22:53] Mark: None.
[31/12/2012 0:23:03] Mark: OH WAIT
[31/12/2012 0:23:15] Mark: YES, BUT I RP AS MYSELF
[31/12/2012 0:23:22] Mark: IN A DIFFERENT UNIVERSE
[31/12/2012 0:23:50] Mark: And I gave it up.
[31/12/2012 0:25:26] Ellie Lou: RP allows writers who might not be the strongest to develop their writing skills without having to worry about character development.
[31/12/2012 0:25:40] Ellie Lou: They eventually move onto OCs which is what I do now primarily.
[31/12/2012 0:25:47] Ellie Lou: In fact, all but one of mine are OCs.
[31/12/2012 0:27:29] Mark: Hmm, good point.
[31/12/2012 0:28:24] Ellie Lou: You will never hear me crack on RP blogs because it takes a lot of courage to interact with people.
[31/12/2012 0:28:38] Mark: Crack?
[31/12/2012 0:28:46] Ellie Lou: Make fun of.
[31/12/2012 0:29:36] Mark: Oh, meaning people using OCs and characters to prevent them from revealing themselves?
[31/12/2012 0:29:59] Ellie Lou: No?
[31/12/2012 0:30:17] Ellie Lou: I mean that it takes a lot of gall to put you and your writing talents out there for the world to see.
[31/12/2012 0:30:39] Ellie Lou: And I’m not using and OC or a character to prevent revealing myself, I was giving you an anchor blog to find me in case I disappear.
[31/12/2012 0:31:27] Mark: Oh no, I wasn’t referring to you. I was just trying to make sense of them others, tbh.
[31/12/2012 0:31:49] Ellie Lou: People like making OCs because they don’t have to stick to a preset characterization.
[31/12/2012 0:31:52] Mark: You’re like the only one I know who does this.
[31/12/2012 0:32:25] Mark: AH, INSTEAD OF FOLLOWING CANON CHARACTERS!
[31/12/2012 0:32:34] Ellie Lou: Exactly.
[31/12/2012 0:32:41] Mark: And it allows growth and exploration.
[31/12/2012 0:33:17] Mark: A blog, wriiten in the OC’s mindset, could really reveal certain things.
[31/12/2012 0:33:33] Ellie Lou: Yes, and that’s actually a really big problem with OCs.
[31/12/2012 0:33:46] Ellie Lou: Their muns, the writer, often puts too much personal detail into their story.
[31/12/2012 0:34:34] Mark: Wouldn’t it be tough to maintain an OC and not let one’s own personality shine through too?
[31/12/2012 0:34:52] Ellie Lou: It depends on how well developed the OC is.
[31/12/2012 0:35:03] Ellie Lou: I’m NOTHING like Camille or Georgiy but Harley is all me.
[31/12/2012 0:35:09] Ellie Lou: Which is why I don’t play him much.
[31/12/2012 0:38:10] Mark: I’ve never really seen your other blogs, never fancied it.
[31/12/2012 0:38:24] Mark: But now, I’m tempted to write up an OC.
[31/12/2012 0:38:41] Ellie Lou: It’s fun to watch them sprawl.
—————-[END CHAT LOG]————————
Well, I’m seriously glad that I stayed wary of you.
That I responded minimally to you in relation to what the others went through.
I just feel really disturbed right now and very violated, I considered you a friend and to hear all this, I cannot.
But like I said in the chat log, there is absolutely no way that some parts of your personality didn’t shine through our chats.
