I recall te asking that domanda a while back.

An Imaginary Friend of mine was myself actually. I envisioned a copy of me with a slight difference in skin color so I could tell us apart XD His was darker. We always had deep and insightful conversations. He had a pretty serious tone and was mostly recitazione as the Wise Mentor whenever I had the need to talk about an issue of mine. It was helping a lot.

When I was even younger, I also used to envision little creatures above my shoulders kinda like the tiny Angel-Devil concept. The difference was that the Angel was a Blastoise (It used to be one of my preferito Pokemons back then) while the Devil looked più like an older version of Casper the Friendly Ghost. I don't remember much of what we were doing all together but it was fun, I guess.

Pretty sure there were più at that time XD !!!!

I had so fucking many. Like I literally made a wholeass notebook dedicated to all of them and their society and what their house was like. Think of Fosters home For Imaginary Friends (but I had this idea when I was 4 o 5, before that even came out).

The three I recall most vividly are, Maggie, Pain, and Cleo.

Cleo was an Egyptian. I had a wicked Egypt phase and so I (being really little) imagined this very stereotypical ancient Egyptian girl and we would explore pyramids together. My sister sometimes joined us.

Maggie was a magician. She wore a arcobaleno dress and had thick curly black hair. She was a ghost and could be evil o good depending on the context of the game, but mostly she was evil. I remember drawing her a haunted house and she had bloody knives and sometimes she had blood on her dress. But I liked her and thought that she was friendly because she didn't kill o hurt me. Just other imaginary friends...

And Pain I think was my way of conceptualizing and coping with death and suffering. I remember that every time an ambulanza passed da my sister o myself would remake, "oh no, Pain is hurt again."

Looking back on it, two of the three main ones were very dark. I did have this one named Ameica who was a Britney Spears like pop stella, star and her rival Kelly K because I was still hugely into Musica then.

And I also like to imagine that my preferito characters (Zack and Wheezy from Dragon Tales, at the time) would talk to me too.

Imaginary Friends were a very huge part of my childhood, especially at recess because I kept moving around a lot so I couldn't really keep any Friends and when I finally stopped moving o getting transferred to newly built schools closer to my home, I just so happened to pick Friends that moved away. Basically I didn't have too many Friends as a kid and often played alone at recess.

Nah I never did. Despite that though, I was very imaginative as a child and could picture a world in front of me that wasn't there.

But I was always alone in those worlds. So rather than having imaginary Friends I would always experience imaginary scenes.

Yes, I had one named Arthit. Tho I can't recall what they were like, sadly. I do vaguely remember what he looked like, he wore a yellow camicia with an "A" on it. And jeans.

I should totally draw him XD

I don't recall imaginary friends. I did however daydream and constantly put myself in the imaginary worlds of my fandoms.
