That's a really good idea. I'll do that.

I've never seen Fight Club, so what do you mean exactly?

spoilers: throughout the movie the focus is mostly on two characters, but at the end they end up being the same character, who has DID (multiple personality disorder)

basically I mean she could think Lydia's a ghost while it's actually an alternate identity of herself, created when she tragically got stuck in a tomb and nearly died, which also caused her claustrophobia.
though this is just a suggestion, I don't expect you to actually take it.

This is good, but I have one question. Would Hazyl be talking to herself when she's supposedly "talking to Lydia" and would she be talking when "Lydia's talking"?

not sure about talking to each other, but foe speaking for lydia, Housepets! itself has multiple examples of pets being possessed by higher beings, and most ghost myths at least mention possession. She could think that lydia is the type of ghost that hast to do that to interact with the world?

that would allow her to rationalize the otherwise apparent discontinuity between reality and her delusion.

From what little I know of multiple personality disorder and schizophrenia, I think Lydia and Hazyl would never interact. Hazyl may well be aware that something takes her over but I don't think she'd have any idea of what it is or what happens while Lydia is in control. To the other pets it would appear that sometimes Hazyl is nice and friendly and sometimes she gets nasty and calls herself Lydia. I think they'd realise fairly quickly that it's a mental illness and not some form of possession though. I think the two would look quite different.

this is fictional DID. the characters in Fight Club interacted for the whole movie/book, even "talking on the phone". so yes, it would look like she's talking to herself, but if she thinks she's a ghost that could be explained away.

as for a difference between possession and DID, I don't think there would be much difference.

Post Re: HPU: Applegate OOC
Well, then, I guess it depends on how realistic you want to make this. If she appears to be talkign to herself though then I think it's going to be immediately obvious that something is up.

As to possession... After consideration I think you're probably right, Brent. Both can manifest in a variety of ways after all.

possession would need a ghost though , and since there's no ghost to be seen , especially by other ghosts , so the others might not be convinced by that

some ghosts can hide themselves if they're skilled enough. I'm pretty sure Hubert isn't always visible to the ghosts. Maybe she's shy and only feels confident enough to talk through a physical body, specifically Hazyl's.

Post Re: HPU: Applegate OOC
Well, I personally am not objecting, though that's not to say she's accepted as I'm not G.M.

I will however, offer some warning/advice as a fellow roleplayer, and as someone afflicted with the borderline variant of the disorder.

First thing is to make sure you keep a list of everything that triggers the shift of identities. If you lose track of it, it can and very likely will make the character end up rather unstable, which would be counterproductive to the purpose of the trauma repression response.
-Warning/Advice as a roleplayer

Second would be that you're very careful with the identities. Sometimes they will end up not so different in how they respond, which is not particularly a fault of character design. In fact, if the identities have common ground, then she will end up being more comfortable; more stable. This said, being different is part of what makes coping with the trauma easier, so being too alike could end up with the inverse effect.
-Warning/Advice as someone with the borderline variant of the disorder.

Third is definitely to relax if the character ends up bouncing back and forth between the identities when pressured. Stress makes the mind act up, so it's could very easily affect the character somewhat more drastically than one without D.I.D. Not saying that one being present can't happen, but that it's perfectly normal if there's a lot of back and forth between the identities when stressed.
-Warning/Advice as someone with the borderline variant of the disorder.

Most importantly, where she seems particularly complicated as a character, try not to freak out if you end up stumped with the character once in awhile. Ask for ideas on what people think the character might do. Sometimes the ideas from other players help a lot more than might be expected.
-Warning/Advice as a roleplayer

Now, given what I've seen of your play with Lyn thus far? I'm inclined to think you're capable of handling her with a fair bit of grace, and the warnings/advice as a roleplayer may be more overcautious reminders than anything, and the warning/advice given second looks to be completely unnecessary based on the actual profile.



She looks fine to me, if a bit difficult to play, in short.

Perhaps it is only me, but I can barely make out Hazyl's color #008000 from the black text, perhaps if you choose the color below #00BF00, it will be more noticeable?

... Well, I mean if you have trouble with it, you have trouble with it. I look at it and its so sharp a change it borderlines jarring. It's possible you might want to check that with a professional, but color acuity is possibly one of the lesser things that can be wrong with someone's eyes.

Either that, or we have entirely different ideas of 'barely.'

If I denied a color choice because it's too close to black I'd be a hypocrite. have you seen Tara's color?
unless that's a screen issue on my part and the difference is a lot more obvious than I can tell.

well from the hex code it's supposed to be blue. I tend to mistake blues for grays more easily than most people do for some reason. that's probably part of it.

Post Re: HPU: Applegate OOC
These characters look alright personality-wise. however you seem to be doing something a lot of players do when just starting out.

While they are emotionally and somewhat intellectually equivalent to 21 year-olds, they've still only been alive for 6 years. architecture takes a lot of schooling in math and engineering, something a 6 year old couldn't (or rather are unlikely to) have achieved. He would lack customers because he lacks a degree, not just because he's a ferret.

However, surprisingly to me, paramedics don;t need much schooling. Getting a paramedic license could take as little as 6 months according to wikipedia. I'm willing to believe that a 6 year old ferret in Housepets could be a paramedic assistant, so Ion is good as far as I'm concerned.
