    I feel like sometimes when I finish binge reading straight for a few days/weeks of a certain novel I might pick up their traits and ideals subconsciously :eek: right now I'm feeling like a bad person and almost everyone in the world is selfish and greedy :cool:

    Do you guys get influenced by anything from reading your novels (whether the mc,side characters, world setting or villain)?
    Does your personality and ideals and the way you see the world change, either temporarily or permanently? :eek:

    OMG I know this feeling. I've read that Colorless Tsukisomethingsomething book, and I become all philosophical after reading it! I kept on bothering my friend on questions about life, what happens after death, if all things are predetermined, if everything is just a grand scheme, and all of us are just ignorant about it, thinking that we live lives of kings....

    My personality is the amalgamation of different personalities I've read on different novels, fictions, books, stories, myth, lore, etc.
    that is deemed advantageous to me.

    Quite close, I actually tried shoving nine miniature animal models up my asshole trying to imitate the beasts in chufengs dantian.

    Needless to say, the doctor wasn't amused.

    I'll get back to you when I start killing people for using my name in a sentence....But in all seriousness I only get influenced by Sports Anime which sucks because after watching Dan Doh!! I was convinced that Golf was the greatest thing in the world until I returned to reality
