My daughter is very proactive in her roleplay - she's even started a few things that have become 'fanon' and she was laughing. "I started all of that, but only a few people know it. I don't feel the need to have to tell people that I was the first one to do it, but it's kind of cool to just know that's what happened. You know?"
I had to laugh. I know ADULTS who feel the need to point out what they 'started' - they don't have the wisdom of a 12 year old.
*sniff* I'm so proud.
