Dipping my toes back into the otherkin pond
Hi there *waves*

I've known about otherkin -- and believed myself to be dragonkin -- since the tail end of 2005, when I was 14. I've ducked in and out of the community a couple of times since then, but the belief has stuck. I used to say I had the soul of a dragon, but since I'm not convinced the soul even exists, I just stick with "I'm somehow a dragon, don't ask me how". It is, however, the one facet of my personality that I don't really share, and while it doesn't impact my life in any great way, it would be nice to talk about it occasionally.

Anyway, hi! <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

Welcome <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> Is it correct to assume that you identify with western dragons?

I occasionally have wyvern-esque... feelings/images/whatever, but yes, the vast majority of the time it's the four legged two winged western type I identify with <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Welcome to OKP!

How do you feel about eastern dragons also being classigied as 'dragons'? My best friend, a dragon, has always been irritated that eastern and western are grouped together as she sees eastern dragons as distinctly different and that they should be their own category (ie. not be called 'dragons'). So I was wondering what your thoughts were.

Re: Dipping my toes back into the otherkin pond
Regarding eastern vs western dragons... I think it's analogy time! For various reasons, the red panda and the giant panda are both called pandas. However, their only similarities are their habitat and eating bamboo. They're actually two completely different animals (the giant panda is in the taxonomical family Ursidae along with bears, whereas the red panda is it's own special family, Ailuridae) that just happened to get lumped with the same "panda" name. Maybe it's the same with eastern vs western dragons. They have enough similarities to both get called dragons, but they are most definitely not the same thing.

I may be talking out of my backside, of course <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> and I don't pretend to be an expert on eastern dragons.
