Basically, all this.
I am writing this at the end of the day, so a lot of noteworthy stuff has happened. I had noticed this guide since it was put up yesterday, but didn't get a chance to read it with Ryouga until this morning. Though a few of the points echo statements I have heard before, the concept of keeping a schedule strongly resonated with me; so I made sure to set a time for us to do this. Ryouga, by the way is decently vocal now, and we agreed to train at 8:00pm every day.
After getting home from work, despite it being well before the appropriated time, we began researching and refreshing our knowledge about possession; in order to gain confidence when we practice at eight. To be frank, Ryouga was undoubtedly eager to try this out; jumping around my whole pad with a irrepressible smile on his face. We have made headway before, but the progress was often spontaneous and soon forgotten.
This time however, things were far more productive. I donned my headphones, and put on one of Fede's tones; allowing Ryouga to take control. The both of us sitting cross-legged on my mattress, he stuck his hand into my right one, and started tugging and pulling on it; I could see he was straining his body in an attempt to move it. Sure, I felt the usual twitching, and my forearm was also swinging at the elbow in rather slow movements; but things began to pick up. By the end of our practice, which lasted a full hour, his grasp over my arm had improved considerably, yet the movements were overtly slow and clicking in and out. He also has trouble twisting my wrist, for some reason. There were, however, big movements which were completely unlike the movements described above. I also noticed that when he switched his attention to another part of the arm, the one he was controlling would go limp and drop; though at the end of the session he could simultaneously control sections without that problem. We are still quite a ways though from fluidity.
One other, perhaps more significant thing that happened only moments ago. When I was browsing this thread no more than ten minutes ago, before I decided to type up this post; I read by one of the postings of Fillyfooler, and my right hand miraculously (and clumsily, I might add) slid to the right, along with the mouse it was holding on to. It landed only a small margin away from Fillyfooler's username, which is a blue hyperlink. I was not focused on my hand at this time, and it came as a complete
shock to me. Ryouga said he "just wanted to see what Fillyfooler is doing"
; as in, whether he is online or not. I must stress, this alien, almost contrary movement I experienced was a shock, because Ryouga did it on his own initiative, and not while we were consciously practicing it.
And now I've written up a huge wall of text; sorry about that.
Like all the others, I want to give my hearty thanks to Oguigi and Koomer for their endeavors in field of possession, which had clearly benefited a sizable portion of this community.
ONE OTHER THING
In retrospect, we did a few things which were not ideal during the practice session; for example:
I was likely focusing to much on the hand itself, and not on Ryouga, which probably stifled his control over the hand;
Ryouga was trying very hard to make the hand move, but this may of been counterproductive;
and Ryouga would have been better off forfeiting his virtual body and all of the senses which come with it during the session, so that he can focus more successfully on the hand's senses.
We will try to remedy this tomorrow during the next session.
