Where wild minds come to rest

Daydreaming about characters I feel sorry for.

Hey, I was observing my daydreams and I've noticed a pattern. A lot of my daydreams include characters from books or tv shows that I feel intensely sorry for. They are usually victims of some sort and I daydream about enpowering them. My recent character that I daydream is about an adopted girl that had made many sacrifices for her family. She's a very kind-hearted, selfless girl but her foster family always mistreats her. They treat her differently from their biological kids. It's pretty sad. I daydream of her leaving home, making a living for herself independantly, becoming a successful businesswoman and finding a man that makes her stronger as a person. Can anyone else relate?

@Natalie  and @taffle so do I. It's like when you're picturing it in your head, you can almost feel the emotions and their pain but when your character starts overcoming her troubles and fights back, that's when you feel amazing. It's like this amazing emotion that drifts through you. I don't know how to explain it. 

@CreativeWriter, I think you may be right. :)

@Tinkerbell, I watch True blood too. A few of my DDs a long time ago was about true blood actually.

Occassionally but only if I liked that chracter to begin with.  Like when Godrick from True Blood killed himself because he was depressed and felt it was time to die, when I day dream of him.  He is still alive and more powerful then before, happy and able to help Sookie and Eric defeat Lilith and such.

I frequently daydream about characters living with and overcoming difficult situations. I think I do it because overcoming adversity makes characters more interesting and gives them a heroic quality. This is also evident in just about any novel and if the characters didn't have difficult situations to work through the book would be boring and plotless.

from time to time, i have DDs of female characters who have been abused. I imagine them feeling depressed and used, and their efforts at independence end up in vain. I'm trying to stop such DDs and replace them with healthier ones.

Ohh and I'd just like to add that, I have no idea where that comes from and why I do it but I just do. If anyone can relate and can explain why they do it too, I'd appreciate it.
