Multiple System Mini-Questionnaire
These are just some questions that we're curious about regarding other Multiple Systems. Don't answer anything you don't want to.


What’s your collective name, if you have one?

How many of you are in the system?

If you don’t mind, please state each individual’s name.

Are any of you opposite sexes?

Are any of you classified as Otherkin? (i.e. not of human origin)

If so, how many of you are classified that way and what are you?

How did you come to be a Multiple System?

How did you find out about being a Multiple System?

Do each of you have your own set of memories?

Do you all share memories and thoughts?

What are your most humorous moments?


Thank you,

Shang

Re: Multiple System Mini-Questionnaire
I think I'm just going to answer these, since... well, I guess since I have a bit more experience with being in a system than Deros.

What’s your collective name, if you have one?
We don't. That was easy. Moving on, now...

How many of you are in the system?
There's three of us.

If you don’t mind, please state each individual’s name.
Deros, Kraela, and Yriela.

Are any of you opposite sexes?
Both me and Yri are female gendered. All of us are of the male sex.

Are any of you classified as Otherkin? (i.e. not of human origin)
Yes.

If so, how many of you are classified that way and what are you?
All of us. Deros had some past lives as dragons, and me and Yri are still polymorphs

How did you come to be a Multiple System?
I split off from Yri to allow her to better do her job, and then we were both suppressed into a new mind, which is Deros, until recently.

How did you find out about being a Multiple System?
Deros was split up since he awakened. Eleven futching different personalities. Eventually, though, he shaped up until he found first Yri, then me.

Do each of you have your own set of memories?
For past lives, Deros doesn't remember much at all, and Yri's memories go a bit farther back than mine. For current life, me and Yri are pretty much aware of what Deros does, although the opposite isn't necessarily true. Although, admittedly, he often doesn't remember what he does, either, so maybe that's just a pattern.

Do you all share memories and thoughts?
We're aware of what each other does pretty often.

What are your most humorous moments?
I don't want to answer this, so I won't.

Re: Multiple System Mini-Questionnaire

...House Hesson.

If anyone was surprised (assuming we don't change names again in the future and thus make this outdated), I will be sad.

How many of you are in the system?

14 conscious, definite people plus 1 construct that we treat as a person to be sure and the feeling that there are more asleep in the back.

If you don’t mind, please state each individual’s name.
Are any of you opposite sexes?
Are any of you classified as Otherkin? (i.e. not of human origin)

Runtime: the aforementioned construct, agendered, no true form but has taken to appearing as an Arachnos Spiderling from City of Villains
Acanthe (aka Beast): gender slider (sometimes seems male, sometimes seems female, sometimes seems neither), human
Catherine (aka Cat): female, human
Val: female, elf/beetle
Cai: male (sometimes shifts female), elf/melanistic serval
Solundat: male, elf
S'aryn: female, elf/domestic cat
Shainin: female, elf/crab spider
Aspen: female, elf
Svanni: female, elf/fox
Rhun: third-gender but prefers to be treated as male, elf/owl
Sapphire: intersex but generally perceived as leaning female, hobbit-like Fae
Stephen Shang: male, human...ish (insourced introject/soulbond, cyborg in the fiction he originally came from and prone to getting mixed with non-human things in any fiction he gets used for, whether we planned it or not...)
Aletheia: female, celestial
Nihil: female, "retired" celestial

How did you come to be a Multiple System?

We believe that a number of the nonhumans were hitch-hiking, so to speak, with one side of our family via line reincarnation: attaching to the souls but, up to this point, not necessarily becoming conscious. (Of course, one family member on that side has joked about "multiple personalities", and sometimes that sort of joke really isn't...but we don't know of any others who are definitely multiple and aware in our family, on that side or not.)

The original human self also fractured, seemingly as a result of emotional abuse during childhood; Cat was previously three people who each performed a different role in getting us through that abuse, and Beast is also from that human core. They all agreed to integrate if possible, now that the situation is very different, but from what we've heard integration doesn't necessarily last so we're also prepared for the possibility that they will split again.

Shainin and the two celestials are walk-ins. Shang and Cai were intended by Val to be characters in a roleplaying game and developed autonomy. We consider Cai to be Val's son, as it seems she managed to attract a soul of her own kind to reincarnate here in the process of "creating" him. We consider Shang to be a plain old introject; there are no signs he had any life of his own before this.

How did you find out about being a Multiple System?

Val ran across Kinhost while researching her Otherkin nature (much of which later turned out to be Rhun's, actually) and ultimately kept coming back to it because of the shiny, shiny lure of creating a mask/construct to deal with the parts of "her" life that she didn't want to. She tried to make one and instead ended up waking up Beka, one of the three who later integrated to become Cat. An ugly mess ensued before we got things right and recognized the others as independent people who could also take control of the body, but that's another story.

Do each of you have your own set of memories?
Do you all share memories and thoughts?


Those of us with past lives have our own memories from those, and we can usually sort out whose is whose now that we can tell who's who in general. Our general memory is shared but flashes of those other lives don't get entered into general memory until one of us becomes conscious of their existence.

We automatically pick up the thoughts of the others who are conscious at the same time. One person's thoughts can also trigger another to become conscious - usually because it's greatly amusing to the person waking up or it's greatly distressing to the person waking up (Val often wakes up to stop arguments or warn Shang against behavior that could get him/us in trouble).

What are your most humorous moments?

1. We were in partial hospitalization and so out of it that we felt like one big, fuzzy ball of self, not a distinct person most of the time. When the happy pills started working and this feeling started lifting, Shang found himself standing in front of a toilet man-style, unbuckling his belt, and only belatedly realizing that he couldn't pee that way. Looking in the mirror as he washed our hands was also strange; he felt as if he was stuck in the body of Val's character in the 'verse he came from and couldn't help wondering when she was going to let him switch back into his own, Ghost-in-the-Shell style.

2. Couple weeks ago at WindyCon, our sweetie's sweetie was watching Rhun the ex-soldier swagger around in a suit and stiletto heels, and remarked that we looked like we needed a sword. XD

Re: Multiple System Mini-Questionnaire
What’s your collective name, if you have one?

N/A

How many of you are in the system?

14, or so, though most of us are "visiting".

If you don’t mind, please state each individual’s name.

Solaith (writing), Maringa (my half sister), Noelle (main poster here, goes by vampyre_smiles), Alix, Elsa, Tifi, Nurrha (friends of mine at various times), Eridhwein, Bedhlemeir (Vren), Marc, Cassandra (or Cassy), Domah, Ning Xiu and Sophia.

Are any of you opposite sexes?

Yes, I am male, along with Alix, Marc and Domah. Eridhwein appears male but being Vren, has no sex. Bedhlemeir is also Vren, but appears female. The rest are female, although Noelle considers herself non-gendered.

Are any of you classified as Otherkin? (i.e. not of human origin)

Humans are in the minority.

If so, how many of you are classified that way and what are you?

Several of us are similar to what you would call vampires, including Noelle. We have two Vren, which I will translate as demon. One Nephilim. And one cat-like being, but Nurrha does not visit often.

How did you find out about being a Multiple System?

Various webpages on Noelle's side of the connection. On my side, speaking with my friends who have had similar experiences or dreams.

Do each of you have your own set of memories?

Yes.

Do you all share memories and thoughts?

Not all of us. But experiences will be communal for any of us who share mindspace at the time.

Re: Multiple System Mini-Questionnaire
House Hesson: XD the first moment is ROFL funny, lol. Gabriel about died when he read it, lol.

Deros, thanks for correcting me--I did know the difference betweeen gender and sex, I just wasn't paying atention when I wrote it ^_^.

We'rre going to answer our own questions now because it's appropriate to do so, lol:

What’s your collective name, if you have one?
Shangri'la (though this sometimes just my name)

How many of you are in the system?

Three

If you don’t mind, please state each individual’s name.
Sarah, Gabriel, Alessandra (Sasha)


Are any of you classified as Otherkin? (i.e. not of human origin)

Yes

If so, how many of you are classified that way and what are you?

I'm Draconic, Gabriel's a Celestial, and Sasha's...an unknown because she was created to be a fictional vampire

Are any of you opposite sexes?

I'm female, Gabriel's male, Sasha's female and we all share a female body.

How did you come to be a Multiple System?
Me and Gabriel were born into the body and Sasha became real at some point and we don't know when.

How did you find out about being a Multiple System?
Gabriel got impatient and pushed me out of the driver's seat and shouted, loudly, "I'm here! Stop ignoring me!"

Do each of you have your own set of memories?
Me and Gabriel have individual memories, though his are vague. Sasha...I think...may have some? I'm not sure on her yet

Do you all share memories and thoughts?
Me and Gabriel do and Me and Sasha do. Sasha and Gabriel have almost no inkling to want to talk or connect with each other.

What are your most humorous moments?

1. See the "how did you find out you were a Multiple System" question.

2. We had had a little bit to drink and Gabriel was fronting and he can't handle much alcohol (apparently) and he got all touchy-feelly...He touched everything and anything that caught his attention-- we wound up rubbing friend's shirt because it was soft and all he wanted to do was touch. >> And it led us to touching some strange guy who thought it was unbelievably funny that there was this girl touching everything. <<>> No more drinking for Gabriel, lol.

Re: Multiple System Mini-Questionnaire
I'll reply here, Lishie or Blake might wanna put their two pennies in later~

What’s your collective name, if you have one?
Polyrhythm Complex.

How many of you are in the system?
Three :3

If you don’t mind, please state each individual’s name.
Lishie, Blake and Rizumu (me).

Are any of you opposite sexes?
Blake's a man, Lishie and I are girls.

Are any of you classified as Otherkin? (i.e. not of human origin)
Nope~ although Lishie's definitely been confused and thought of that possibility.

How did you come to be a Multiple System?
Uhrm ... =/ It just ... happened? We think I was here all the time, born into the body just like Lishie was, but 'asleep' until very recently. However Lishie split into two around 2002-time, so now there's Lishie and Blake. So, in that case, we were all born into the body even if Lishie and Blake weren't originally two different people.

I'll leave it to the adults to re-answer that. ;___;

How did you find out about being a Multiple System?
Lishie noticed Blake first when he started taking control in college days.

Do each of you have your own set of memories?
I guess so, but we share lots.

Do you all share memories and thoughts?
^^^^^^

What are your most humorous moments?
Uhh, I can't think of any that happened in headspace as we use that headspace for private-think or sleeping, but I like to giggle at things I notice in the front.

Rizumu pretty much got all of it; but I'll revise the answer to one question as she stumbled a little.

momo Wrote:How did you come to be a Multiple System?
Rizumu, we believe, was born into the body along with me. She's been sleeping a lot, and only just woke up. We're unaware of what actually did wake her up, maybe it was increased activity in headspace as Blake and I were communicating.

Blake split from me around 2002, when we were 11. He went through his own 'puberty', I guess, as he developed on his own as I did through the teenage years. I didn't notice him milling about until I was 16, though.


Hope that clears a few things up. <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->

Re: Multiple System Mini-Questionnaire
Posting for the sake of completeness:

What’s your collective name, if you have one?

We don't have one. Theoretically "Archer" was a name I chose for otherkin forums to mean me and him, as my nickname elsewhere is Say. However, since then, Archer has become a name I use for myself anyway - and he doesn't have any real interest in otherkin, so it's pretty much irrelevant.

How many of you are in the system?

Depending on how you count, either two or one. Two in the sense of "him" and "me", one in the sense of it's roughly 90% of me and 10% of him - there are bits missing from each of us but we make up one total person when added together.

If you don’t mind, please state each individual’s name.

I'm Archer, aka Say. I'm sure I've posted his name elsewhere but I'll not do it here because I think it is unfair of me to talk about someone else in a forum of mine.

Are any of you opposite sexes?

I am female, he is male.

Are any of you classified as Otherkin? (i.e. not of human origin)

I'm otherkin (a shadow in a human body). He's not (he's just a regular shadow). Though he has lived as a physical being for at least one period of time, he would not have considered himself "otherkin" in any way at all - just an incarnation or personification.

If so, how many of you are classified that way and what are you?

See above.

How did you come to be a Multiple System?

As far as I am aware, he was damaged on the level of soul/energy matrix, to the extent that he could potentially have shattered and died utterly (not in the sense of being reincarnated into another life, but in the sense of "soul death" or permanent cessation of existence). In order to prevent this from happening, damaged parts of him were removed and put into a host-person (me). Parts of me were, in turn, removed and put into him to plug the gaps. It is possible that I was also seriously injured at the same time, and as such each of us served as host/healer for the other's damaged parts.

I do not have access to or contact with the rest of him (including the part of me spliced in there), just the small portion I carry with myself.

How did you find out about being a Multiple System?

I had memories of his - both of specific events and of personality, feelings, and attitudes - for many years. I spent a long time trying to work out where these memories came from, with my two main initial thoughts being either that I was reincarnated and remembering a past life, or that I was insane and simply had delusions.

After a very long time of studying these memories, other signs/symptoms about myself, and a good heap of old fashioned reasoning, I concluded that he and I were actually separate entities who had become linked.

It is, of course, not a final conclusion. I could be entirely wrong. However, other explanations of myself had a greater or lesser amount of paradoxes, flaws, and gaps - this understanding of myself fits with the available evidence.

Do each of you have your own set of memories?

There is no real separation between us, so the question can't really be answered as it is. "Each of you" assumes that we're different - we aren't necessarily so.

Do you all share memories and thoughts?

The 90% of me and the 10% of him that inhabits this body are co-conscious. That said, we rarely pry into each other's memories. I used to spend a lot of time and effort trying to recall things about his life and nature - I no longer do so, as at this time I believe it is inappropriate for me to rifle through his mind.

On the other hand, I currently have no contact of any kind the entity made of 90% of him and 10% of me, and thus no access to those memories or thoughts.

What are your most humorous moments?

He used to front on a fairly frequent basis. I had to ban him from eating when doing so, as he had the habit of eating every single bar of chocolate in the house then going to "sleep" to leave me with my head in a bucket trying not to puke.
