This is an in-class writing exercise. We were asked to pick a person we know and fill out certain aspects of their personality and traits (very rudimentary stuff). I chose my evil twin, Jocelyn. What we didn’t understand was that we were supposed to swap character sheets, and using the info provided, write a scene with the other’s character. Since we chose to do each other, this would have resulted in us writing about ourselves. Madness ensued.

Jocelyn approaches the Twilight Sparkle mascot. He’s giddy, face red with glee. There’s a bounce in his normal shamble. He pulls down his over sized headphones. The red fox ears of his hat add a sense of alertness to his general disposition. He taps Twilight Sparkle on the shoulder and gushes “Are you real?”
“No,” a gruff male voice grunts.
“Oh,” Jocelyn replies, dejected. “I’m sorry.”
He saunters away, pleased all the same.
