Confused
I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if they have any idea what I might be. I know a definate answer is impossible but if anyone has or knows someone with the same feelings as me then that could be helpful.

I used to know two Dragons who both felt the same about me - scared. They both hated me on first impressions, and I didn't think much to them either. I know I have wings, I've always known that. I'd say they're dark brown. I feel I'm meant to have ears atop my head, and I have a tail also. But one of my friends said he could tell me what I was if he tried hard enough but was too scared to find out but he wouldn't pass at the possibility of me being Demon. He also said my Guardian is one, but I haven't felt her around for a while now. I don't talk to this guy anymore, and I dont much want to either.

I gave up trying to find out a couple of years ago, but I started to have a longing to know again now the wierd stuff has subsided (I found I had black "things" following me around that look like shadows)

Its a bit of a wierd one. I know I'm not a dragon for sure, and I also have a dislike of humans - I find them "common". Darkness and Demons do fascinate me a lot, I had a friend who told me to stay away from that kind of stuff once, not that I have meddled in it however.

I also like to purr and make other cat like noises if it helps narrow things down.

No.

Don't ask people to tell you what you are or even offer suggestions. All we can ever do is suggest you look in a direction (as in, someone might suggest you read up on greek mythology or something) but no self-respecting otherkin would ever hand you a species title. It wouldn't help you.

I replied to this on otherkin awakening. We might be able to throw out theories, but you won't get anything definitive. I said there that given the reactions you've gotten from some people, you might want to look into shadow. The article I linked you to is found on this site's main page.

Ah hi again. I felt that didn't quite fit. Shadows dont have verbal language it says, and I find I often make cat-like noises depending on what state of mind I am in. I had one ex of mine keep telling me to shut up and I was being silly, but it was completely normal for me.

I mrr and meow too, and it is entirely normal for me, but my species didn't have a spoken language either.
Don't get too hung up on what you "do" now as a defenition of what you "were".

Thanks, I try not to let it bother me <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

I find I try to stretch wings a lot that aren't physically there when I'm at my desk. It often sends chills down my spine too when they appear or something passes through me, does anyone else get that?

Re: Confused
It is not uncommon for one to have many sensations in relation to phantom parts. I feel pain when my tail "passes through" solid objects.

I don't see why *any* energy being would have verbal language, it's a result of millions of years of adaptations that have made humans.

That said - nothing of what you've said here points to any specific kintype.

Two people are scared of you - that shows you're scary to some people.

You have phantom ears, tail, and wings - that shows you have phantom ears, tail, and wings. It doesn't even mean your kintype has ears, tail, or wings - just that on some level you feel them on yourself as you are now. (For comparison, I have occassional phantom cat whiskers - I am not a cat-kin, nor does my "true form" have whiskers.)

Shadows seem to follow you - that just means shadows seem to follow you. To find out why, you would need to ask them.

You make cat noises - maybe your kin type is some kind of cat-like animal, or maybe like millions of people in industrialised societies across the world you identify very strongly with cats (perhaps without even realising it).

No easy answers here, which is of course a good thing.

Re: Confused
I was never anything remotely feline. I make cat noises, and canine noises too... because I like cats and dogs, and not only have them as pets, but also work with them as my career. As to energetic impressions, several people have managed to somehow think I was an elf. I was not, and am not.

It takes time, and sometimes also takes *not* obsessing over it. A label is just a label.
