Good to Meet You
Hello one and all!

I realize that I am completely overdue for an introduction to the community here at Otherkin Phenomena. Also it does not help to know Chaitea and Rosaleen Ban outside of the interweb in regards to timely matters like this.

First to answer your most burning question: No. I do not identify myself as an Otherkin. I would like to consider myself a "Human Ally".

Secondly the reason that I'm here. I know a good amount of people that do identify themselves as Otherkin. Some are closer than others, but my exposure to these people have made me explore the idea of "Otherkin" as a belief/philosophy. I've checked a few sites within the recent months and trolled some forums, but I haven't been able to get a good grasp of the philosophy. Finally after expressing my thoughts to Chaitea and Rosaleen Ban, they invited me to join the forums here.

With such an invitation, how could I say no?

So here I am. I cannot wait to get to know all of you in the time to come. Hopefully I will be able to understand things as they come to me. I do have plenty of questions but I will not burden you all with them. I have tendency to answer my own questions by gleaning my answers from what I see.

Thank you, and speak to you soon.

Omagods! A human being! Among the more rare of kin types around these parts. Welcome to the site, Pseu. (it's obviously your own fault that it sounds like "Sue", by the way) And feel free to ask all the questions that come to mind.

There is no "otherkin philosophy". The only thing in common is the idea that we are humans who are in some way non-human - for example as a result of a non-human soul, or strong identification with another life (or other reasons).

While individual otherkin may have a philosophy about themselves, that is an individuals and in no way common to otherkin as a whole.

That said, welcome, and I hope you enjoy yourself here.

We do make a wonderfully persuasive team <!-- s:twisted: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_twisted.gif" alt=":twisted:" title="Twisted Evil" /><!-- s:twisted: -->

Glad to have you about, but be forewarned. Your about to learn a lot more about my spirituality then you probably ever wanted to know.

Re: Good to Meet You
Thank you for the warm welcome everyone. I can tell that this aughta be an interesting experience already <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->

Archer- I'll have to keep that in mind. I guess I can already tell that perhaps those sites were not the best of places to get a grasp on Otherkin...like, at all.

Deros- Yeah I guess I did walk into that one. But oh well. Teaches me to think twice about my alias'.

Chaitea- Trust me theres already plenty of things in regards to you thats more then I'd eve like to know.

Rizumu- Well I do try my best.

Seraphyna- No worries. I've made it this many years avoiding the fate of digestion or sacrifice. I think I could manage to keep it up.

RosaleenBan- You know how I can be with being timely. You're going to have to try pretty hard to frighten me, by the by.

Re: Good to Meet You
great to finally see you around here, hope you enjoy your stay. And you should only really be terrified of Chai, but you already knew that
