Meghan - Charleston SC
I believe in original characters and the “admins” who made them. These are people who are created from purest of human imagination. The more they are interacted with the better they develop and grow, just as the people who made them do.

A little less than a year later I saw OC’s popping up with personal accounts created by their administrator, or “Admin.” Later on I had an Idea, and it kept shifting from one thing to another to another, again and again.

and ducks around the counter without waiting for a reply.
He slips his cigarette between his lips without taking his eyes from mine. I follow him out the door.
Keep in Touch!
