I want to give my tulpa complete freedom to decide on personality and appearance but

She's already developed a bit. She's able to talk to me sometimes. I'm just afraid that if I decide to start over with a void or something, that it'll put my current tulpa on hold, and end up creating a new one instead. Should I just stick with this appearance and personality, then let her transform into what she wants? I'm not the most imaginative type, so it would be very hard to make sense out of a void to see what shape she takes. Others can see fine details, but all I would end up seeing is a chaotic void that's always changing.

Will list tulpas when I get things sorted out in my head.

She'll develop into what you subconsciously want her to, neither of you have a choice. You're taking this a little too literally IMO.

Yeah, but I'm not exactly sure what to call her now. If I keep calling her Twilight, she might feel pressured to become Twilight.

I might as well mention what I want her to be now. I'm hoping that she'll look similar to Pinkie Pie, but have Twilight's intelligence. Except, maybe be smart in her own way, like heightened Pinkie senses and an affinity for magic and a curiosity of people, the earth, etc. Radically different from Alicorn Twilight. But I'm still not sure exactly what I want her to look like, and I don't want to force her appearance, or her personality for that matter. But in the end, she'll still be similar to what my subconscious wants anyway.

Should I just cut all pretense and rename her Pinkie and imagine her looking similarly to Pinkie Pie, and accept any deviations from there? Or would I end up creating a secondary tulpa?

Maybe a better path would be to slow down with all this and not feel like you have to make such convictive decisions. Have a trait list, make some time for yourself to sit down and think about it, and let the process happen.

If you want certain things, then communicate what you want. You can't have a total hands off approach and still want certain things, you're pulling yourself apart by having two different mind sets.

The most terrifying thing about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent. In the vast darkness we must supply our own light.

So would it be possible to tell my tulpa "I want you to look like Pinkie Pie and have her personality, with Twilight Sparkle's intelligence, but feel free to change however you like" without making a whole new tulpa?

Yes. Tulpas are not as concrete as your thinking. They can change in any way at any time, and deviation can happen long after a tulpa is "finished". You don't have to worry about shackling it to what you start out with.

How would you feel if your parents expected one thing from your development, but got something else. Forcing your expectations on someone very young, is not always a good thing.

In my experience if your forcing something the tulpa doesn't like, say her form, then she might be covered in darkness, or hard to see. If your are giving her a form she dislikes then it would kinda bounce back, or fall off to the form she wants.

I think your on the right track, by allowing her her own freedom on what she wants to be. Its what I did for Co and I am perfectly happy the way she is.

I suppose in the end its not your tulpa but the tulpa you helped create.

I agree. The form and personality are only to make visualizing her and vocalizing her easier. Although I prefer pony form, there are many other forms and variations of those forms that I like as well.

Just pick something and go with it. You're a lot more accepting of other forms and personalities than most of the bronies here, so you shouldn't have any problem with forcing your own desires on her. I'd say don't worry about it and just pick something you both hopefully like. Later on when she's sentient enough to want to change, she will. If you think she'll fell upset about something, especially early on, then she probably will.
