1. How did you find out you were [insert your type of Fae here ] and not any other?
Well, I've been through phases. I've even thought I was druid for a while, [Druid, in this sense, being a Faery that attaches itself to a certain animal. It probably has another definition, but Druid is what was introduced to me.], Elven, Drao, etc. The only reason I believed I was Elven was because someone had pointed it out to me - a complete stranger. As of yet, I'm not sure of what I am.
2. Any funny incidents that have happened to you from your kintype?
This may or may not have anything to do with my kintype, but I have a tendency to attract/be attracted to Vampyres and Dragons. Not even romantically, just naturally being drawn to them.
It happens with different Otherkin as well, but I've noticed it more with Vampyres and Dragons.
I can't think of any offhand, I'll probably come back later and post. xD
3. Any not-so-funny incidents?
I can't wear hematite.
I've broken three rings.
I don't even like the crap, I wore it as a protective thing.
They. All. Broke.
4. What are some characteristics you often find among your own type? Both in their "Trueforms" and in otherkin-form.
I haven't met any like me in real life - let alone any of my own type.
It'd be hard to find someone of my own type considering I don't know my own type.
5. What do you like about being Fae? And dislike?
I can't say I dislike anything, really. Mainly because I don't know all of what I can attribute. Most of the things I know I can have positive and negatives, so I can't peg one or the other.
6. What are some characteristics you often find among... Fae in general?
It's hard to say, because outside of myself, I really haven't met any other Fae. Not in real life, at least.
The only thing I can think of is the energy.
To anyone who is sensitive/knowledgeable its really spiratic, often sexual, and more or less potent depending on that person.
But to anyone who is blind to energy, it's almost as if it's not there, or they have a natural aversion to it, often because of a sense of intimidation.
Maybe that's just me - but that's how I've interpreted it.
7. Thoughts on the Seelie/Unseelie courts:
Very interesting. Still trying to figure out myself to which court I belong. I'd assume Seelie, but that's because I don't want to harm people just for kicks.
They gotta do something first. xD
In any case I really like the concept of Seelie and Unseelie, because it's almost Taoist.
Nothing is "good" or "right" or "bad" or "wrong."
It's just a different way of thinking, and you can't have one without the other.
That last part is just my own little add-in, but it may apply.
I dun know.
