tricksterama

I'm pretty easy to manipulate.  If you know which buttons to press.

I'm also pretty easy to invent:  Over the years, several people have clearly been playing to (sometimes unflattering) versions of an Ellen-Shaped-Object, which is not very pleasant, I can tell you!

Unless you are  TRICKSTER!!!

Which I AM NOT -- BUT JESSICA CAMPION IS!!!!

This insight brought to you by a person I know who keeps trying to manipulate a (fairly nice, for once) version of me who does not, in fact, exist - and it is utterly hilarious to watch them try.

So if you were Jessica at age 15, of course you would figure this out, and create different versions of yourself for all the people in your world, and then watch them try to manipulate that construct - while you stand off to the side, laughing your fool head off and then doing exactly what you like.

Wow.  I'd sure rather write about her than be her legal guardian - poor Katherine!

I am distressed by the thought of playing to an Ellen-Shaped-Object, mostly because I like The Real Ellen (TM) so very much. I would be very hard put to invent a better version.

You can learn a lot about a person based on what their internal vision of you seems to be.

I think I need to think about this for a while instead of continuing to feel alternately irritated and insecure about how often I feel I'm not seen truly. Because I somehow hadn't fully though through how it might not always actually be about me.
