I guess I was just born to be a character vessel. ~s~ I don't mind a bit, and I'm really glad I appear to understand. ~thinks~ There was a whole episode at my house a while back where we were having *serious* trouble with Oz from Buffy, who'd gone down with something really *weird* which we originally put down to his being a werewolf and thus generically weird anyway, but eventually he recovered enough to talk and tell us that what he'd felt, what he'd been in so much pain with, was a huge kind of clawing emptiness that stretched all the way through him. And hurt.
Ailei just wrote Harry (I still can't get used to her Harry, but I *do* love him) saying something similar, and...I get it. ~s~ *I* just don't feel it. But I think that's probably a blessing, not a curse.
