I'm still awed by the ability of a fictional character to come to life in my mind. A character like Jessie seems to speak for herself, often with ideas that surprise me, the alleged author. So when the fourth wall breaks in this video, it's not about bringing the viewers' attention to the fact that they're watching a fictional character. It's about me acknowledging the fact that the character actually does have a mind of her own, camping out somewhere in my brain. Our sense of an atomic self is its own type of fiction. And fiction is its own type of reality.

I'm still playing around with Plotagon. This video is based on a 100 Word Story originally written for Crap's podcast. I added human voice acting to replace the automated text-to-voice in the raw Plotagon video, along with extra sound effects, a new music track and some video effects.
