An Imaginary Friend of mine was myself actually. I envisioned a copy of me with a slight difference in skin color so I could tell us apart XD His was darker. We always had deep and insightful conversations. He had a pretty serious tone and was mostly atuação as the Wise Mentor whenever I had the need to talk about an issue of mine. It was helping a lot.
When I was even younger, I also used to envision little creatures above my shoulders kinda like the tiny Angel-Devil concept. The difference was that the angel was a Blastoise (It used to be one of my favorito Pokemons back then) while the Devil looked mais like an older version of Casper the Friendly Ghost. I don't remember much of what we were doing all together but it was fun, I guess.
I had so fucking many. Like I literally made a wholeass notebook dedicated to all of them and their society and what their house was like. Think of Fosters início For Imaginary friends (but I had this idea when I was 4 or 5, before that even came out).
The three I recall most vividly are, Maggie, Pain, and Cleo.
Cleo was an Egyptian. I had a wicked Egypt phase and so I (being really little) imagined this very stereotypical ancient Egyptian girl and we would explore pyramids together. My sister sometimes joined us.
Maggie was a magician. She wore a arco iris, arco-íris dress and had thick curly black hair. She was a ghost and could be evil or good depending on the context of the game, but mostly she was evil. I remember drawing her a haunted house and she had bloody knives and sometimes she had blood on her dress. But I liked her and thought that she was friendly because she didn't kill or hurt me. Just other imaginary friends...
And Pain I think was my way of conceptualizing and coping with death and suffering. I remember that every time an ambulância passed por my sister or myself would remake, "oh no, Pain is hurt again."
Looking back on it, two of the three main ones were very dark. I did have this one named Ameica who was a Britney Spears like pop estrela and her rival Kelly K because I was still hugely into música then.
And I also like to imagine that my favorito characters (Zack and Wheezy from Dragon Tales, at the time) would talk to me too.
Imaginary friends were a very huge part of my childhood, especially at recess because I kept moving around a lot so I couldn't really keep any friends and when I finally stopped moving or getting transferred to newly built schools closer to my home, I just so happened to pick friends that moved away. Basically I didn't have too many friends as a kid and often played alone at recess.
