Do characters hold special meanings to you? For instance, do you ever make a character to symbolize some part in your life that that particular character is supposed to be experiencing something similar? For me, I will admit some of my personal life comes out into the character. Like in a roleplay Fluffbutt and I were in, my character's brothers died. and well, it dealt with the loss of my own brother. It helped me get through it. Or roleplays, do you ever incorporate personal experiences with yours? I have worked in what depression does to someone (won't mention what kind of rp it is as I am still in that rp and want my partner to be surprised by this).
