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.
