I strongly recommend playing all the AC games in a marathon event here during the Christmas/New Year break from work/school/whatever, and then posting about anything weird that might happen as a result.
Need to see if this bleed-over effect thing can happen to anybody. Last time I did an AC marathon, I spoke English with an Italian accent for a week after.
Edit: By the way, I found myself in a situation today where a 12-year-old girl broke down in tears because she was being teased by a notorious troublemaker in the class. The hell are you supposed to do about that? They don't teach you that stuff at the teacher's college. It was awkward as hell. And I had to put on my other hat as well, for the first time since I started my internship. The serious business hat. Was not pleasant, but sometimes you've got to put down your foot and teach them to respect your AUTHORITAH! I have a very long fuse when it comes to kids, but after telling the same four boys to shut up while I was talking - to no effect - I decided that the friendly, understanding, funny teacher hat wasn't doing the trick. Fortunately, my mother's side of the family graced me with a booming voice, so when I started making the windows vibrate, it was like someone froze time for a couple of seconds as the kids all snapped to attention and were like "oh shi-"
Good times. And now it's holiday time, so I'm going to kick back and have myself a beer. Good job, Maz.
Edit 2: The Desmond story picks up in AC2 and its sequels. I recommend playing through AC1. There are some cool twists later on that relate to AC1, and you'll be playing as Altaïr in one of the sequels, which I imagine is confusing if you didn't play the original.
