Greetings to All!
Good morn, day and eve to everyone! My name is Marie, I'm still trying to figure out what kind of otherkin I am- all of the votes amidst those who know me in real life are for angel/fae thingy- and I'd like to explore more of the otherkin community that's available online. I hope to vex many of you- only in the spirit of pure overenthusiastic chatter- and enjoy reading the conversations that will be here!

Re: Greetings to All!
Welcoem to the forum.

May I ask - why do you think you're otherkin?

Re: Greetings to All!
Hello. Welcome to Otherkin Phenomena - I think I've seen you around Otherkin Alliance, correct?

One thing I must say; although offline support is a great help in discovery, 'all the votes going towards angel/fae' may not necessarily make you one (as seen by your 'kintype' text in your profile). Do you have your own memories or stages of your awakening which help support this? It's perfectly fine to be unsure; in fact, being 'unsure' is a lot healthier than jumping to conclusion.

Just mildly curious.

Re: Greetings to All!
Welcome to the board!

I'll echo the curiosity already twittering around you - why are all the votes angel/fae, and why do you believe what those around you say?

(Our board seems to be filled by supporting each others' love of talking - typing - about ourselves, so the more, the better <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink --> )

Re: Greetings to All!
*waves to Deros* I think I will, actually. ^_^ *nods at momo* Yep, I've poked around Otherkin Alliance more than once. Nice to see you here! Chaitea, I hope I can add a little colour. ^_~ That's part of my job in life. *waves to Seraphyna*

Kay, so RosaleenBan and momo had a question- Why all the votes for angel/fae? ^_^ It's fun to explain- I'd be happy to satisfy anyone's curiosity. (Of course, I posted the questions before the last talk my best friend Fenshae and I had, and we've come to a rather fitting decision since then.) Archer's question ties in with that- why do I believe I'm otherkin?- so I'll combine the answers.

Essentially, I'm a slightly psychotic, overprotective, defensive of those I love/admire, creative, eccentric and oddly stable in a crisis sort of person. I've always resonated with winged beings. (And I do mean always.) I don't have any memories per say of being an angel/fae, but there are strong connections to all things considered 'mythical.' My best friend- who knows me better than I know myself in many ways- and I have gone over all the options, and what fit best was a celestial with ties to (I'll use the Greek names to make it easier) Set and Thoth. (It works simply because I'm a very chaotic writing desert rat who's obsessed with having red hair and gets horrible back pains from muscles that have no reason to knot. There's more invovled with that, but it'd take far too long to list it all.) When I use the word 'fit,' I mean that quite literally. Every self-realization in my life has been a sense of fitting more securely into my own skin. Paganism? Glorious fit. Bisexuality? Even better. Otherkin? It's like completing what I am. Am I claiming to flap around with a pair of glorious wings and have superhuman powers? Nope. Fenshae had a point when she says we claim these titles to better understand our sense of self. That's really all I'm claiming.
