It's a funny relationship we have with our avs for sure. In theory I can only speak for myself, but I've noticed on countless occasions how friends shift in their personality when they move between alts. Give me three alts and I give you three people. It seems we project different part of ourselves into our various pixel dolls... and that seems to be true even for people who claim they are the same whoever they're 'in'. My relationships are different with people's alts as well... I can be very partial to one while luke warm to another, even if I know there's the same person at the keyboard. I decline to mention one in particular that gets BOTH my bitch and asshole going.
