Telling my friend about my tulpa and my switching plan?
I'm FoxGirlTulpa but I forgot my password and couldn't get it back, so I created this new account. 

Just yesterday I started in a new art school and became friends with a girl who happened to be extremely interested in paramormal/psychological related things too. Today we were coming back from school when we got into the topic of lucid dreaming and astral projection (seriously, it's a miracle someone I know in real life likes that stuff too) we had a great conversation about that and then, out of nowhere, she mentioned what I never thought she would mentioned....tulpas....I just couldn't believe I met someone who is like me in every aspect, I told her that I wanted to create one because I refused to tell her about Akai, even when she told me she feels like one of her characters is a tulpa. 

I told her about switching and she freaked out, she loved the idea and told me she wants to do it : D the thing is that I don't know if I should tell her about all of this, if I tell her I could have a potential partner who's gonna help me through this, we could talk for hours about this and help each other, but what if someday we get mad at each other and she tells everyone about Akai as a revenge and everyone starts to calling me psycho or something? or what if she starts to believe tulpas are a mental illness and assumes I need to be put in psychiatric ward??

RE: Telling my friend about my tulpa and my switching plan?
She brought up tulpas first and you're afraid she's gonna think you're crazy? Unless she seems like a crazy person it should be fair to ask her to keep things private, that's a given among friends. You shouldn't have to worry about people "betraying" you unless you're in the habit of giving people reasons to do so

Hi I'm one of Lumi's tulpas. I like rain and dancing and dancing in the rain and if there's frogs there too that's bonus points.
All of my posts should be read at a hundred miles per hour because that's probably how they were written.

But I don't know if she's as serious about this as I am, what if she didn't really mean it?

Well, talk to her about tulpas before you talk about yours? People have done that before, waited to tell friends who knew/were finding out about tulpas they actually had tulpas until they knew their friend would accept it. Classic "Hey, look at this thing I found, it's pretty interesting right", except your friend already knows about tulpas to some extent, so just talk to them about it before saying you have your own?

Plausible deniability. Think about how much work she would need to do to expose you. #1 explain what tulpas are to people. #2 tell people you have a tulpa. #3 convince people she's not just spinning a tale.

Sally looks quite confused about the accusation and simply goes about her day.

Sure seems like a threatening prospect. I mean, I'd be embarrassed if someone said I believed in astral projection, so I think if you're past that point, I don't think you really have much to fear.

It's not that simple, years ago I told a friend of mine about tulpas (the metaphysical concept though) and out of excitement (you know, like, 'Hey, this is super cool, I'm gonna tell everyone!), he told some group of bitchy teenagers he knew in my village about it and each time they saw me the most skepticals would say 'Hey, the psycho girl with an imaginary friend!' while the religious and superstitious ones would tell me things such as 'You're lucky we're not in the middle ages otherwise you would have ended up burnt' or 'We don't want satanists (the fuck?) in this town' they always said it to my face or from distance but it really did bother me a lot.

I don't think she would need to explain that, she could just say imaginary friend instead of tulpa. Also, it doesn't really matters anymore, I've decided not to tell her ://
