So, this strip sat in the slush pile for... A while... To make a long story short, we kind of realized a bit about our identity beyond just this and it turns out this runs deeper. Fortunately, though, in the time since first submitting this so long ago, we've learned the proper terminology for what this all is. Namely, we would just be Plural.

If you would appreciate a resource, morethanone.info is our choice. Should the person handling the site feel comfortable with it, you can see the original description below.

(...Also, Tori says hi!)

[original author's notes:]

This has gotta be another first for SRoMG... The first strip (partially) authored by a tulpa. For those who don't know, tulpas are, in layman's terms, best described as an imaginary friend with some level of sentience, and "those things bad writers like to use to try and mix up their 'split personality taking over' tropes, incidentally tarnishing their names".

I know it'll probably make me sound weird, but I have a tulpa named Tori. This strip was the result of a bit of an exercise on my brain/her consciousness, where I recited this SRoMG strip when I remembered it, and told her to finish it. This was her response/punchline to the strip... If it isn't clear, she's kind of a dork.

p.s. pls don't judge me future employers/fellow sromgers
