Calved off a more meditative/revelatory response to this to my own journal, but meanwhile...

The separation of self and persona, whether projected from within or without, is something I remember being aware of from a very young age. I think L.A. is pretty much a huge churning stew of opportunity to work that one out, and the permeable divide between fan and pro in SF-fandom only reinforced that. I've spent a little time on the periphery of major media fandom where the divide is sharp, and I'm not fond of it, even as I see why it's there.

I have a mirror-image puzzlement, with authors of various stripes who speak of their characters being in control of the story. Sort of reverse RPS. I don't get it, and it weirds me.
