Had a pretty epic realization on the way home from work today. Well, it felt pretty epic at the time, anyway.

I think it hit us both, Beth and I, that we're essentially twins. We look alike. (I don't know how exactly I never truly figured out how I'd look in the outer world, if I had my own body, but Beth came up behind me in the headspace today, turned me around, and she said it was like looking in a mirror. We're usually both up front at the same time so we don't get much chance to look at each other. :P ) We like the same books, the same tv shows. We feel like two pieces of a puzzle that just nestle together perfectly.

That's not to say I'm a carbon copy of her, or the other half to her whole. Good gods, no. The only electronics I've really figured out how to work are video game systems, while she's built computers. Beth doesn't really drink much, while if left to my own devices I could drain a bottle of chocolate wine in a night. I'm a much more sensual creature than she is. I'm louder. I've got an attitude. I don't take shit from anyone. (I mean, come on, I threatened to shove a My Little Pony where the sun don't shine on the husband when he gave me crap the other day) I like to be social, where she'd be happier just sitting at home all the time. I am the wolf, where she is the kitten.

But realizing that we are what we are together... makes things fit better. Feel better.

Twins are rather common in our system, due to trauma splits, so I understand that feeling of "fitting."

And you sound happy! :)

[redirect profile] resist is my twin, and came here when I needed him, and yes... he and I have a lot of overlap but we're also like yin and yang. And it definitely feels good to have that fit. I wouldn't have it any other way, really.

This. Very much this. This is how Q and I fit together. :)

Like [personal profile] wolfborn said, you sound happy, and that makes me glad. =) Remember when you got the wig and said, "I look like me!"? I thought then that meant you and Beth were pretty close, so I'm glad to hear that you're figuring it out.

I've always kinda known that you two were practically twins. All the dynamics make sense. Of course, I -do- have the unfair advantages of being an outside observer, knowing Beth enough to recognize most dynamics in relation to her if I think about it enough, and having the time to do just that.

I get what you mean. Blake is older than me, Arthur is younger, and both look fairly different from me and from each other, but there is definitely a physical resemblance. Scary thing is, both guys have physical characteristics of my dad's family whereas I and Rizumu take after my mother - I didn't even realise this until I saw photographs of my father when he was a young man. Seeing as we are of essentially the same 'genetics' due to we three originally being a single person (Rizumu was born her own person and is not a split) it makes sense.

My boyfriend and his headmate Kaila think of themselves as siblings. Kip's said they're like twins. They were both originals.
