And I think I have it pretty well figured out.
when i think midlander hume i think 'who would like to be that, i'm already that'
then i think fat people. people who have always wanted to be thin but are to lazy to get enough exercise to fit through a normal sized door.
i think "who would want to be elvaan", and it comes to me, self involved pricks who couldn't think of being anything other than themselves because they think they are gods gift, why settle.
i think "who would want to be galka?" until i think of the scrawny kid who got picked on by the big mean kids in middle/high school, suffers from depression, and is desperate to be badass in any form they can accomplish
i think "who would want to be manthra, until i think 'lonely virgin who will never get some, and has a strange tail fetish
i don't have to think very hard about who would want to be tarutaru/lalafell, as it's someone who obviously excels at everything in life, gets laid regularly, is rogishly handsome, relatively popular, and just wants to have more fun, because his life is already completely awesome.
