grock anon -- Oops, I dunno what happened! In any case, 2) for the people who are trying to knock the idea of one person being convinced of something "strange" by another person, my mother had me convinced from a young age that I was very, very special. I was very special because I was also here to save her. She told me about past lives and dreams that she had about me saving her, specifically, from my father. This is just one facet, but this IS a thing that happens. This is why I follow this.
Yikes. I’m sorry you went through that!!
The "Russ" he channelled is presumably Icarus Utterson, a tortured bisexual genius wizard with an eating disorder OC from the sequel to DAYD.
So long as it’s a tortured genius.
