This isn't my first time here by a long shot, but so much has changed in my life since the last time I was around that, even though my posting was limited, I felt the need to start fresh, and present my profile as a clean slate. My name is Maddie, and I'm joined by Chauncey. Tulpamancy as a known concept is still relatively new for me (only been aware of this community for 2-ish years now) but tulpamancy as an act is not new. Chauncey is what the community would refer to as an "accidental" tulpa. He started from just a little voice in the back of my head that I parroted so often it became second nature, and then suddenly it wasn't parroting anymore. Gradually, Chaunc has picked all aspects of himself - he has his own personality, his own voice, his own likes and dislikes and image - essentially, everything you'd expect of a tulpa. He's been with me since sometime in 2013, but things got rocky for awhile. Without getting into too much boring (or sad) details, I forced him to fade, something I still strongly regret. It wasn't until I stumbled upon the tulpamancy community that I realized what he really was, and the enormity of what I had done to him. I'm still trying to help him return to his former glory, and I want to do it right, and do right by him this time, with more age and more knowledge under my belt. Longer than I wanted this to be, but that's that. I'm hoping to learn all I can from everyone here, and give Chaunc a way to communicate with others. Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to read this, and I can't wait to actually get to know some of you.
