Fictional vs. virtual

Yesterday, I met a fictional heiress. She's a character in a novel. Since her friends (according to the book) tend to get assassinated, we agreed I'd be her "image consultant," instead of her friend.

Well, that brings up the question... Am I fictional too?

The character that my roleplay alt plays is fictional; that's easy enough. But is Opal fictional?

Virtuality blurs the line between fiction and non-fiction.
