Yes. I guess I've been tulpamancing since before I knew it was a thing? I always just kind of thought it was normal, especially since people always talked about children having imaginary friends.
And my child mind always thought people could actually see their imaginary friends.
It's weird. I saw my first "imaginary friend" when I was 5 or 6 and started calling them Muses, mostly because some of them were pretty inspiring.
I was browsing /mlp/ one day, just lurking and found a Tulpa General and read into it, and started thinking, "Wow. More people that can do this."
What kills me is, Speck's only been around since around the first Bat Pone thread, and most people take months to craft a tulpa.
She's still developing, yeah, but it's kind of funny how fast it's happened.
