That's a good way of putting it, pinkkiller. I hadn't thought of it like that. I'm someone who doesn't act or pretend at all, I don't do anything in-character (posing for photos notwithstanding), so it weirds me out when people treat me like I am and want a picture with me as if I really am Portgas D. Ace or something. Maybe that's where the creep-factor comes in.
