    Evolved Gods

    I'm not sure about the "imaginary" tag - depending on your definition of reality, an entity that exists in your imagination is still real, in some way...anyway, I'm digressing. I still have an "imaginary" friend, or companion - she sort of evolved out of the...

    Anne, The Prankster

       Anne is a short girl with short black hair, light green eyes, pale skin, and a mocking glint always in her eyes and a smile on her face... and she's not real.   Anne, in a way, became my imaginary friend not intentionally but unintentionally. At times, my...

    His name is Lux and he is a purple coloured

    dragon, that properly sounds bad to begin with. He follows me around my life and he acts like my logic, my rational thinking. If I'm in a sticky situation he will give me ideas on how to solve them. He's called Lux because he guides me to the light.

    I have an imaginary friend.

    I didn't give her a name yet and she's pretty upset with me for it. Some of my friends think that it's weird for me to have her around all of the time but most of the time I don't know how to send her away. I don't mind her company at all but she scolds a lot. She went away for...

    Penny

    Penny is imaginary, but I'm not sure if she's my friend. She is a completely different person than me, not to mention a little psychotic. And she has a very freaky left eye o.O I'm not really sure when I first came up with her, or why I did in the first place, but we get along...

    Jase, My Jase.

    None of my "imaginary friends" last very long but I have projections of these warm souls whenever I'm in a rough patch. Somehow, over the years, my imaginary friends have become weaker and weaker, and appear lesser. When I was 14, I had an imaginary best friend- a boy my own age...

    His name is Leonard Finch.

    I named my profile after him, because he's me. That's what he is. He is a bad version of me who has a better life. I want to be just like him. I love him and know that he loves me because he is me and you can only love and trust yourself. He did kill most of the kids at my...

    Well...had Anyway

    When I was 8 I had a very vivid dream of an intensely bright light descending from the sky and landing near me. Out of the light there came an alien who walked over to me. He was a few inches taller than me and had gray/green smooth skin. He was hairless, and his eyes...

    I Had An Imaginary Friend

    When I was four I had an imaginary friend, her name was Mrs Minimini. She lived in our coat closet at home. This was a cool coat closet because it went on and on forever( well it seemed that way to a four year old). I would go in there and play with her. We would have tea...

    Zaki was disappointed.

    No... That was not quite accurate. Disappointment required some manner of positive expectation, which Zaki was sorely lacking from the start.For all her assurances, Zaki did not trust her mother as far as she could throw her. And what did it matter how long they stayed in...

    Is It Normal For Me To Have An Imaginary Friend?

    I'm a teenager, and I have an imaginary friend. His name is Arthur, and he's very handsome, and very empathetic. He has black hair, which he slicks back, dark brown eyes, sometimes he has stubble on his face, and he gets dimples when he smiles. He's sort of based of guys from the...

    Wilbur The Brave

    He's there. I haven't talked to him in quite a while, because my counselor told me that I should get rid of him. The relationship was starting to get unhealthy. But somewhere, in the back of my mind, he's still there, and I still love him. Sometimes I want him back so much...
