Hello!
Hi! I'm Pepper and I believe I am an Avian Gryphon Otherkin, but I'm not opposed to continue soul-searching if that assumption is wrong. When I was younger I always wanted to be an angle or a bird, basically anything with wings. It hurt to look at the sky and the clouds because I felt that I needed to be up there instead of suck here on the ground. However, I also wanted a tail, and I didn't care what kind as long as it was long (like a cat or dog). Through all of this, I never really connected with other people. Sure I can play along, but I don't understand a lot of things that are social customs and things of that nature. I discovered the term 'otherkin' through my friend (why I didn't know was otherkin then xD) on Tumblr and I've been researching ever since. Through (my admittedly bad) meditations, I discovered a few feelings and past memories that don't really give me a kintype but Gryphon feels right. I know I have feathers, four feet, a tail, and wings. Lately I have been feeling phantom tail feathers as well (stupid things are so annoying when wearing pants!) but who knows. I could just as well be a feathery dragon. What I am confused on is the mouth, as I am not sure whether I have a beak or a mouthful of teeth.
I am here to learn and make friends and hopefully to learn how to meditate more effectively/efficiently as well because I'm terrible at it.
I'm 17, biologically female but I feel more agendered, but that may be because of my asexuality and aromantic things. I play cello, do general art things that are not on the computer, write, read, spend absurd amounts of time on the internet, and freak out about my somewhat immediate future. (choosing what college I want to go to ahhhh)
I'm also a chronic lurker, so I suspect my post count will be pretty low.

Re: Hello!
Been awhile since I've seen a Gryphon about. One of my best offline friends is one and she went through a similar awakening process of mixing and matching the distinctly different, but well melding animal aspects until Gryphon just felt right in the end. You still seem to be searching so feel free to poke around here and ask away.
