Hello OKP
To be honest, I'm not really good at introductions... But "Hi" I guess = P . I go by the nickname Silver... I'm a male, currently seventeen years old, from Canada. I've known about otherkin for about a year now. I haven't really been too active in otherkin communities however, decided to join mainly to learn other's perspectives of -kin and input my own thoughts where they are needed. I don't really like calling myself otherkin (the term irks me a bit for some reason) though I guess if you were to classify me, I fit as 'dragon kin'. I used to be on TFW under a different nick, but I barely posted.

Interests include art (specifically photography), psionics, nearly everything that has to do with the outdoors and a few other things.

Well, that's about it for me. I'll be lurking = P

Welcome <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> So how did you come to the conclusion that you're dragon-kin?

The terminology irks a lot of people, but it *does* make it easier to know what the heck people are talking about <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue --> Oh, what name did you go by on TFW?

Re: Hello OKP
Welcome to the forums. I hope you enjoy your stay. In addition to Sera's question I have one of my own. What do you think the term should be if not Otherkin?

Re: Hello OKP
Thanks for the warm welcome everyone =) now I guess I have to answer some questions...

Seraphyna Wrote:... So how did you come to the conclusion that you're dragon-kin?

A lot of exploring myself basically... when I first discovered -kin just over a year ago, I figured that I should know my kin-type right away, because it's me and I should know what I am right away, so I rushed things and my conscious mind filled in the gaps. After a short while and some more 'soul searching', I ran into myself being dragon. My conscious mind started denying the possibility of being dragon, and so I tried to make the other kin-type fit me, which it never really did. At this point, I didn't know that my current "kin-type" I had settled on was just a figment of my conscious mind, so I was stuck between dragon (which I kept denying) and it. I let things go for a while and didn't really think about otherkin for a few months. Then I started digging again. My subconscious mind was basically screaming at me to figure things out, and it sucked a lot heh... so yeah, more 'soul searching', meditation and stuff, and I finally realized what happened and felt kind of stupid. I'd created a mask really, I can still use it to disguise myself from people scanning, if need be...

As for the nickname thing, I went by the nick "DarkTiger" on TFW.

I don't think there is a need for the term to change, just that it irks me... like being called a psychic... there seems to be some negative connotations associated with it, like people think we are faking something. As for what I would go by, to be honest, I haven't really told many people that know me about being -kin =P

Not much, once and a while though. I like soccer better, and freeride biking ( big jumps =P )
