    We like switching between avatars. Putting on different clothes. Trying on different hats. Sometimes, it’s only by pretending to be something that we realize that this is what we really were all along. “Fake it until you make it.” And without fakery, we wouldn’t have fiction, or television shows, and so we wouldn’t have play. Play is important. Plays are important. We use such to pierce the veil of appearance to see who we really are without having to undergo the drama ourselves. It’s like a way of implanting certain memories within ourselves, so we can “go back” to certain experiences without having all the trauma or cost associated with it.

    As a dramaturge/drama teacher I’ve heard and read a lot of attempted definitions of what Drama is and what it’s for. This, Jane, is by far the best, the most succinct and the closest to the conclusions I’ve come to after many years of studying the subject that I’ve seen. Thank you.

    You’re back! Fantastic, I’ve missed these, they’re always a delight.

    OH MY GOD. I just realized that Ethan is Bigwig stealing the “mudder.” That just blew my freaking mind.

    One small edit: I think you mean lapine protagonists, not lupine.
