Now for something completely different: Avatars in Love video

Avatars In Love - Episode 1: Three's a Crowd from Botgirl Questi on Vimeo.

Woot, first post!

I love this. I hope "Episode one" means there are going to be more... :)

Highlights nicely how often different ideas of the SL/RL split (or lack thereof) seem to be a major cause of friction in SL relationships. (And, being optimistic again, I know of some relationships where it doesn't cause any tension, because both parties have the same ideas about it.)

Another source of friction that seems significant (or at least I've run into it in sad stories from more than one friend lately!) is a boy AV assuming that the existence of a relationship with a girl AV (no matter how tentative or new) gives them control over what the girl wears when, where she goes (especially without him!), whether she leaps up onto dancepoles, and suchlike.

I wonder if that subject would be interesting to your artificial eye? :)

Yes. I'm going to try for an episode a month and plan on having guest stars each show. I'd love to have you on one of the shows.

I am interested in how gender roles, sexism, jealousy, etc. play out in avatar relationships. Lots of comedic potential for sure!
