Hello!
Since I'm both terrible at introductions and tend to ramble, I'll try to keep this as short as possible.

I joined here under another name ages ago but don't remember doing so, so I felt I needed a change to the name I usually go by as well as a reintroduction.

I'm 19, female in mind and body, live in the USA, and I identify as an Otherkin as well as a therian. Some may recognize me as the same Stray from the Werelist (before I left after having a bit of an identity crisis; I have yet to return though) as well as from OKC. Seeing as I've gone through my history on both sites, I'll refrain from doing so in such detail as I usually do. I'll keep it at this:

As a child I equated myself to something like a Changeling (minus the part about having been left by faeries specifically) and from as early as I can remember (four years old or so) felt as though I was a stranger in this world. In my pre-preteen and preteen years, I was contacted by a unicorn I came to call Thunder, and discovered through him that I was a unicorn as well... something like a walk-in since birth or shortly after, as I had never died as a unicorn.

For a few years I rejoiced in my identity and rather foolishly displayed it openly at school through my behavior. I refer to this as my "first awakening," in which I went through much of the same things others do-- body dysphoria, Yearning, slight misanthropy, things of that nature. Things went spiraling downward when I told a friend, who grew to fear me because of it, and word got around among the teachers I suppose. Whether it did among the students or not I don't remember, but nevertheless I was forced to leave my beliefs and forget the identity and knowledge I had formed and acquired.

Nearly two years ago now I discovered Therianthropy on the internet and began exploring it as well as the feline tendencies I've always had. The unicorn, Thunder, returned again and I freaked out, left the Werelist for a year, and have returned to the belief that I'm a unicorn, which I call my "second awakening".

As for the feline part... I haven't entirely worked that out, but I'm going with it being purely a mental thing and am identifying with leopard for the most part.

I suppose for the most part that's my history in a nutshell. I love answering any questions you may have, so feel free to ask away if something's not clear. Don't hold back if you feel you've got a bit of grilling to do here-- I'll answer as best as I can, because sometimes both are useful for growth. <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->
