PlaySime Interview

"Trouble in Paradise?"

Does "MatchMate" mean more then just systemically suited? Can the joy of finding your MatchMate last through the years, through all facets of a life? Can two people, from such different backgrounds, make a go of a relationship based solely on the fact that they are MatchMates?

PlaySime was thrilled to be able to interview two famous people who are in this position, and maybe get the answers everyone has been wanting to know!

(Names nave been left blank to protect their anonymity. Each was interviewed without the knowledge of the other.)


The Channels Story

PlaySime:
Thank you for agreeing to this interview, Hajene.

Hajene:
I admit to being a little reluctant, at first, but we could use the money!

PlaySime:
How does it feel to be living with your MatchMate?

Hajene:
Oh wonderful! After years of unsatisfactory transfers, I can't describe the feeling of knowing that this transfer will be as wonderful as last month, and the month before, and so on.

PlaySime:
Your life now is much different in many ways to your life before coming here. Is there anything from your past life that you miss?

Hajene:
Of course I miss my old friends (lapses into a wistful pause). My studies too. And of course, I miss my Household.

PlaySime:
So you haven't yet made the step to give up **** and pledge to your MatchMate's Household?

Hajene:
NO! I could never give up ****.

PlaySime (changing the subject):
Hajene, there is something all of our readers are wanting to know. What is sex, with your MatchMate, like?

Hajene:
Of course, after transfer, it's wonderful, but sex has never been an important part of my life. I find that physical and mental closeness is more important to me than the act itself. Personally, I prefer Sime company, especially during that Post period. After all, only another Sime can know what it is you are feeling, and try as they might Gens just can't give you that, especially when they are low field. There was one Gen, at one time, that I felt that closeness with. Of course, a sexual relationship was not possible at that time. I miss (?).
(editors note: we are not sure from the transcript if Hajene said "him" or "Im")

PlaySime:
What about at other times of the month? Do you prefer the company of Simes at all times?

Hajene:
No, of course not! Definitely after turnover I would much prefer to be around Gens. Any Sime would. Especially if they have been trained to control their nager. But that is purely a comfort thing. Obviously I prefer to be around my MatchMate at such times. But for mental stimulation and understanding, give me a Sime, anytime.

PlaySime:
Thank you very much, once again, for the interview, Hajene.


The Companions Story.

PlaySime:
Thank you for granting us this interview, Sosectu.

Sosectu:
That's all right, but I'm afraid I don't have much time.

PlaySime:
How does it feel to be living with your MatchMate?

Sosectu:
It's marvelous to never have to worry about underdraw, I can tell you that! Transfers, in particular, are wonderful.

PlaySime:
Transfer only last a brief moment. What about the rest of the month?

Sosectu:
Hmmm, well there you have me. I mean, it's great to be healthy again, but there are many things I didn't count on. Having a MatchMate around all the time puts so much extra work on my shoulders, on top of running the Household.

PlaySime:
Can you elaborate on that?

Sosectu:
Well, for example, I had no idea that Farris's were such high maintenance! I mean, you read about it, but until you are faced with the reality, you just don't believe it. And then of course they are so clingy, especially after turnover, while just after transfer they act as if you don't even exist!

PlaySime:
Just after transfer? Our readers really want to know about that in particular. What is sex like with your MatchMate?

Sosectu:
It's all right I suppose. I just wish it would last longer than the actual transfer!

PlaySime:
How do you feel knowing that your MatchMate doesn't want to give up his own Householding, even though he can never go back, and pledge to yours?

Sosectu:
At first it was a matter of great contention between us. I was hurt and I couldn't understand it. Now, I don't think I actually care that much anymore. I'm afraid that you are going to have to excuse me. We are having a Householding party tonight and there is much to be done. Parties here are always such a bang up good time!

PlaySime:
Thank you for your time, Sosectu.
