heh.  I used to "immerse" myself in fiction, but only by *inserting* 
myself (or my favorite avatar) into it.  A lot of my stories come from 
stuff like that.  But I don't do a lot of that anymore, because I insert 
myself into my *own* stories.  And that's just as well.  I used to come 
up with stuff like a Captain America / Daredevil / Ellipsis team-up... 
That concept has not survived.
