I figured out I was 'kin back when I was twelve. There was no online community then. My friends seemed open to my strange ideas, but they didn't think I sparkled or anything silly like that. I mostly kept it to myself and wrote lots of fiction. I was smart enough to know what crazy looked like and made a good attempt to not appear that way. I knew which things I could tell the Powers That Be and which things I couldn't. As the years went by I sort of wandered the line between belief and disbelief. Disbelief was much less enjoyable, so I eventually came to the conclusion that a little bit of crazy was worth the risk.
But human I am, and human I will be till the day I die. But humanity is a lot more flexible that most people give it credit for. Humans can do all kinds of interesting things if they study and practice.
