Hello from a sleepy something.
<!-- s:geek: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_geek.gif" alt=":geek:" title="Geek" /><!-- s:geek: --> <.< That is an awesome smiley. I love the smileys here so I'll be using them a lot. I think they're a good way to express emotion quickly and colorfully. But, anyway, that's not why I'm here (entirely).

I'm Amourosa, as indicated by the username. I strongly believe I am a wolf therian, I'm 98% sure. I know I can never be 100% sure, so this is pretty certain. I'm on werelist and OKC, although I don't post much on OKC. I'm starting to explore a possibility that I may also be angelic, somehow, but I'm a very creative and rational person, so I'm not going to say, "I'm X" until I'm 98% sure, and even the "wolf therian" definition is undergoing yet ANOTHER analysis to make sure it continues to ring true with me.
So! I know everyone's wondering *why* I think I'm a wolf therian with a possible hint of angelic/celestial. Here's an updated version of my introduction from the Awereness forums, since they asked some pretty good questions:


~ Why does therianthropy feel "right"?

I’ve always felt just . . . I don’t know, like a wolf. Before I found out about the term, the thought had (jokingly) crossed my mind many times that I’m a wolf in a human body—I just didn’t know there was a name for that feeling.
I have a pack mentality with a strange hint of military influence (despite having none in my background). When working in a group I automatically assign vague ranks to group members. I often find myself in or close to the leadership role, but I settle into whatever I need to be. My close circle of friends is a second family for me and facebook is a gift from Spirit, otherwise I would have lost them by now. I am EXTREMELY loyal to those I trust, those I consider my true “pack” among humans, and I will go to unusual (as labeled by others) lengths for them.
Dominence. That’s a biggie. I see dominance struggles and ranks where others don’t, and even where they don’t apply in human society. I’m in a large leadership organization and I know exactly who is dominant and who is not, even if they are technically at a higher rank than myself. This group, with it's set roles and duties feels like a family to me, similar to a wolf pack as a familial unit where each member has a role. Sometimes we overlap, but we each have something special to contribute. I’m not sure if this counts, but body language and tone are much more important to me than the average human.
I hate to add it, but yeah, it just feels right. Researching therianthropy was like coming home. I just felt like this knowledge was something I already knew and was just learning the vocabulary. It felt like I “belonged.” I was blown away by the idea that other people felt like I did.
When I think about wolves, I see wolf pictures, statues, jewelry, go to the zoo, etc. I die inside, for just a second. My heart breaks because, especially when I see wolves in the wild (via internet or tv program), I’m stuck here, in this life and this body. I want to be there, I want to be with my pack, I want to run and hunt and laze around and play and just be out there with them. I see the body type I not only want to have but feel I should have had. It physically hurts to see these images, and even to drive through forest or other wolf habitats. I’m trapped when I want to be deep in the forest and far from human civilization and certainly not in human form.

And the angel version:

I don't know if this is right. I really don't, and I'm hesitant to share about it right now because it's bare and raw and new and I don't want to be laughed at, especially if I'm wrong. Until I feel safer and surer about it, I'll just say that part of the puzzle pieces have been past life memories recovered, conversations with Spirit (accompanied with very vivid visual cues, thank you very much, it was not fun straddling Chaos and Paradise and being told to choose), feeling a deep sense of Purpose and Message. I believe I have discovered this Message and find that it's been popping up in my life for years, trying to get me to see it and so I have.
IF I'm an angel I can't tell if I'm Fallen, but I wouldn't imagine so because Spirit and I seem to be on okay terms and that sense of Purpose and Message doesn't come from nothing. I've always felt the connections to angels that I've felt with wolves (I have also seen what I *believe* to be past-life memories as a wolf).

I read some things on these forums and I reread my own stuff and I think, "6 months ago I would have thought these people were off their rockers" and I'm one of "these people." A lot of doors have opened in my life starting many years ago to lead me down this path. Am I crazy? Maybe, in fact, it's quite possible (been there, done that). Am I a reincarnated wolf-angel-thingy? I don't know.

I'm a lot funnier out of introduction posts, I promise. <!-- s:ugeek: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_ugeek.gif" alt=":ugeek:" title="Uber Geek" /><!-- s:ugeek: --> <!-- s:happy_angel: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/happy_angel.gif" alt=":happy_angel:" title="happy angel" /><!-- s:happy_angel: --> <!-- s:happy_wolf: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/happy_wolf.gif" alt=":happy_wolf:" title="happy wolf" /><!-- s:happy_wolf: --> <!-- s:happy_dragon: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/happy_dragon.gif" alt=":happy_dragon:" title="happy dragon" /><!-- s:happy_dragon: -->

Re: Hello from a sleepy something.
Nope! I just recently started branching out from werelist. Otherkin.com has a weird feel for me so I'm going to lurk a bit more on that one before getting as involved as I am on werelist. I love werelist, though, and I hope OKP will have a better vibe the OKC, for me.
I heard about this site from a thread on . . . something, I forgot, but Elinox had posted the link and I thought, "Awesome! Let's check it out!" So I did. ^__^

Re: Hello from a sleepy something.
Welcome to the forums Amourosa. Your intro seems to have left Seraphyna questionless. Oh and I would say that it's possible for you to be an angel. There's no reason why an angel can't be a wolf too. I guess that would make you a wolf angel <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> . What form did you have during your conversations with spirit?

Re: Hello from a sleepy something.
Seraphyna: You knew me, but you still asked the questions on OKC, if I do recall. Tongue

HannaTrinity: I'm not entirely sure. It was humanoid and it was like I was replaying a memory and then interrupted and got into a conversation with Spirit. Spirit was above me, but I could see that I was on a tightrope-like thing. On my left was a land of chaos and violence and on my right was a land of softness,

. . . and, I gotta go, but I'll finish this when I can. <!-- sSad --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- sSad -->

Re: Hello from a sleepy something.
Okay! I'm back. To properly answer HannaTrinity's question about my form during my conversation with Spirit:

Human anatomy, it felt like. I couldn't tell for sure if I had wings (it actually felt like I was going back and forth between having wings and not having wings . . .). I had a lot of light emanating from my skin, though. A lot was going on and, well, getting a reply from Deity is special and it's hard not to pay attention to something other than the conversation. <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

Yay for werelist OKP mix! <!-- s:happy_wolf: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/happy_wolf.gif" alt=":happy_wolf:" title="happy wolf" /><!-- s:happy_wolf: --> <!-- s:happy_angel: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/happy_angel.gif" alt=":happy_angel:" title="happy angel" /><!-- s:happy_angel: --> <!-- s:mrgreen: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":mrgreen:" title="Mr. Green" /><!-- s:mrgreen: --> <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue --> <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin --> <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink --> <!-- s:happy_wolf: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/happy_wolf.gif" alt=":happy_wolf:" title="happy wolf" /><!-- s:happy_wolf: -->
