Hello~!
Hi. I'm Night-san, also known on other sites as Night, Pokebreeder123, or Ventisia.
I'm a fifteen year-old girl living in the midwestern United States. I enjoy video games, reading, drawing, and various outdoor activities.

I came here because Werelist, my usual haunt, has been (temporarily, I hope) shut down. I hope that I'll find this place good and stay here even after the List problems are resolved.

I'm a Grey Wolf therianthrope. I've been sort've aware of it since I was a little kid, but until a few years ago I never had an exact term for it. I was pointed to the therian community by my friend. I regard my therianthropy to be a mental/identity thing; it's not spiritual, and I don't really believe in past lives or anything, though if *you* do, I can easily respect that, as what I think is by no means for sure correct.

As for what I do believe, I think that "Naturalistic Pagan" sums it up best, though no one label will ever fit my spirituality to a tee. I'm atheistic by nature, regarding any gods as metaphors for aspects of the universe and human nature. I believe that nature itself is worthy of my spiritual focus. I have some animistic tendencies as well.

Also, Pokemon rocks my socks.

So... yeah. That's all I can think of at the moment. So hello, and feel free to ask questions. :]

Re: Hello~!
Ah, Seraphyna. I recognize you!

Well, first and foremost, I've felt canine ever since I was a child. I only began to actually wonder if there was something wrong with me or different around late elementary school, but for awhile I dismissed it. Eventually curiosity got the better of me, and I shared my feelings with a few friends. One online friend kindly helped me, as stated in the OP.

I acted out (rather mildly, but still definitely noticeably) on my feral feelings, especially when I was younger. I was on four legs instead of uprigjt as often as possible until I was like... eight, nine? I vocalized like a canine. I bit and scratched. I roughhoused like you may see a dog do. I "played" wolves with my friends, but got rather upset when they called it a game, as I didn't see it as such, insisting I was a wolf. I had various other canid behaviors.

I had this behavior beforehand, but as soon as I was introduced to wolves, something just clicked. I had an obsession with them, and not in the way you see "wolfaboos" doing on the internet. I surrounded myself with wolves, identifying with them before I even knee the word "identify."

As soon as I heard the term "therianthropy," I jumped into the community headfirst, as I immediately knew that was me. Shortly afterwards, I went through long periods of questioning and self-doubt, as other people seemed "more legit" than me, as I didn't have big shifts, etc. However, I now identify as a suntherian, who only has small fluctuations from the middle ground like a sliding-scale.
Gut feeling always brought me back, though, and is ultimately what makes me sure I'm a therian. Behavior is just another factor.

I'll admit that my phantom limbs only appeared after learning about others having them. However, mine are faint to begin with, so whether they're a case of mind-over-matter or the idea of them simply not occuring to me until then is anyone's guess. <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

Anything else?

Welcome to OKP!

And yes, the Werelist will be fixed, eventually.

I also identify as a suntherian. <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->

Re: Hello~!
Hi and welcome!

I used to think I was a wolf therian, and I loved the List. Now, since I've discovered otherwise, it's a bit different for me...

Glad you could find your way to OKP!
