Hello
I have no particular fondness for poets, writers, artists, though that can be a plus. I am attracted to the stereotypical moody ones ...

My name is Dechtire, at least online, and I'm Sidhe, specifically Leanan Sidhe. I am not cruel, calculating, a maniuplator, nor was I ever cold, cruel in any incarnations spent as Sidhe. I tend to want to be with my lover until I've caught him fully up in the relationship - and then let him go. I don't mean to, it's just how I am, how I was. I suppose that is where the stereotype of the Leanan variety of the Sidhe comes in.

Of course, I am human now, but still carry many of the traits of my people who I no longer reside among.

I grab energy where I can get it - ambient atmospheres, a store, a mall, and bring the energy inside. I am still learning to filter through the energy, and sort between what I need and what will hurt me.

A muse? I doubt it, unless you could say anyone could be a muse for the right person.

I'm still learning about myself and working with energy is fascinating, at least to me.

I did want to post an introduction while I was still awake.

I remember walking into this body *before* it was born. I do not know what happened to the soul / spirit / person who would have been here instead.

Thank you for reading. Please ask me questions if you have any! I do hope I don't sound fluffy. I tend to worry about that when writing about myself.

Sorry, but I don't quite understand you as it kinda came out of the blue. Are Sidhes stereotyped that way? <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? -->


Anyway, welcome to the good ol' ship OKP :3 I hope you enjoy yourself here and feel welcome!

Re: Hello
Thank you Rizumu for the welcome ~ too often I see Leanan type Sidhe portrayed as preying on people, and I think when I wrote this I was half asleep (I wrote it originally last night) and was apparently feeling a bit defensive at the time ... I'd been reading various websites and getting annoyed. Morals being different in faerie and all, still, coldness and cruelty were not part of my life then, nor are they now. And whatever it was I was reading made me feel that way.
Not all Sidhe are stereotyped that way! Not that I have noticed ... I do tend to type in stream of consciousness don't I?!

Re: Hello
Welcome to the site. Also, I'm a little curious about how you pronounce your name.

Re: Hello
*waves* Jolly to see you! Feel free to spring into conversation, as everyone's pleasantly friendly here. ^_^ What makes you think you're a leanan sidhe? I'm painfully curious, so expect a lot of off-the-wall questions. ^_^

Re: Hello
Welcome here - I myself am new, here seems a good place to stay. Good god - I do not even know what a leanan sidhe should do or not. Sidhe I can sort in, but various kinds of them I do not know. Have not delved into Sidhe-Lore recently.

I used to do something like that too. I would insist that they open up to me and once they did, I realized they weren't right for me at all. If I had just listened to my empathic senses to begin with I would have known better. Of course, it was always more fun to have a boyfriend than to not have one, so there was that temptation. Eventually I did meet one whose energy was right from the beginning. I trusted that even when outside circumstances put a damper on things. I'm still with him today.
