Okay, so over in Fidelius Hogwarts, the Death Eaters have kidnapped Neville, and last night, ol' Nev came face to face with the Great and Powerful Oz - I MEAN Lord Voldemort. Which is to say, me.
(Yes, I play Harry AND Big V. I spend a lot of time thwarting myself.)
So last night, there we are, the dungeon beneath the Malfoy Manor. It's dark and creepy. Neville is weak from blood loss and has lost his wand. Big V has all the cards - hell, I OWN this deck. I'm standing over this weak, shivering child. Totally in the moment. Completely EVIL. ABSOLUTELY in control.
So what do I do?
I START TELLING HIM MY EVIL SCHEME.
I swear I had no intention of doing that. I swear. I know I get into my characters and I've heard it enough times to believe I'm a pretty good role-player. But there's being in-character and then there's losing oneself to the role!
Sheesh. At least now I understand WHY they do it. It's a power trip. It's gloating. It's FUN.
