Mark here, giving you the intro to the Loftmates. Evie didn't feel like doing it - she's not having a very good day. (Good DAY? The girl's been having a bad MONTH! - April) We're seperate, but in the end, we're all Evie. (I never really thought about calling us a "we" until pretty recently... - Evie) So I guess we're all one person - not really multiple. Unless... Well, we saw something about gateways? Didn't get to look it up, yet.
We liked the description someone else gave of their situation - made sense. Everyone's mind is a house. Singles have one permanent resident, Multiples have more than one, and they were between - a way-house, as it were, people came in and stayed, sometimes for a day, a week, or long-term, but not really "permanent".
That's like us. (No, you think? - Fae) Most of us were, originally either characters for a story or THOUGHT to be characters for a story and thus used like such. But we're really not. We've moved in. Lots of characters don't actually move in. And there are sometimes different versions of us. It's a way-house, all of us but Evie are walk-ins. (But I've had walk-ins of some sort or another for as long as I can remember. - Evie) There's actually even a seperate group - the Pubbers, they live in a little pub called the Drown'd Duck. They used to talk to her a lot, when she didn't have any real life friends. They've pretty much quieted down, though. The pub's not really in Evie's head - it's just nearby, so they were always making visits. (Mark... when did I tell you all this? You are WAY too good at finding stuff out. - Evie)
Oh, yeah, and we like to interrupt each other - especially when writing or chatting - and tend to make comments on what anyone else is saying. (That's because it's FUN! - Evie&April)
Yes. So. It's definitely not multiple, but it's not single either. It's just... us. The Loftmates.
