New guy on the block
Hi there. Not sure what all to post so I'll start off with why I came here. So, recently I went through some kind of annoying awakening or energy crisis of sorts. I still don't know which and I was continually trying to bite myself to try and draw blood, quite unsuccessfully I might add. I did end up cutting the back of my hand to get a bit and I was kind of panicky about what it might mean, so I did research, remembering that some people had a blood fetish they called vampirism. I looked it up and stumbled across Sanguinarius.org, which really broadened my knowledge about vampires. For a couple weeks I thought I might be one because of presenting so many symptoms. Heck, for a couple days I was even sensitive to sunlight.

Anyway, it all cleared up even though I've done no feeding. All the symptoms are gone (and by the way, I did check with a doctor first, they said everything was good) and now I'm just really confused. Anyway, during my vampire thing I noticed lots of talk about otherkin and therians, so I was naturally curious about them, and wondering whether it was possible that I might be one. I'm very ready to say I'm not and I'm just here for curiosity's sake and help if I do run into issues (like actually being therian and awakening the beast or something along those lines. I'm sure I'll be hunted down for acting like I know anything at all about them ^_^").

Thanks in advance, I hear you don't like fluff here. Not totally sure what that is, but I can probably deal with it.

Oh, lots and lots of places. They just don't generally explain it in those words.

Welcome to the site and we're all willing to help you.

A little piece of advice (just in case you're a therian):

You are in control of yourself, no matter if you go through a mental shift that's extreme or not. You are always there---and you are always human (not saying that you believed otherwise, it's just something some people forget).

^_^

Thought I'd throw that out there.

Re: New guy on the block
Welcome (recognize you from at least 1 other site). Feeding from ones' self in general is like a snake eating its own tail if you're a vampire. It won't help...at all. However, if you just want to taste blood it works just fine, but a desire to taste blood definitely doesn't make you a vampire.

Oh, and here's an example of fluff *ahem*:

Hi, my name is ______ and I'm the high queen of the vampires leading the war against the lycans who murdered my family. I'm 15 and awakened to myself after someone bit my knee cap randomly in homeroom.

Re: New guy on the block
From the looks of things (I've been looking at things for a while) it appears I am a human with an irregular energy system. It's actually exactly the opposite of a vamp. I produce too much energy really fast and the awakening I had was a result of energy overload. The energy type is healing and I'm just learning psiballs. I can make a tiny marble-sized one so far with a large expenditure of energy.

Just thought I'd update that. I've been healthier than ever recently because I've been 1, feeding my energy to vamps a lot, and 2, using my energy like crazy. Other than the empathic abilities I'm getting used to using I'm normal. Anything special I can think of would be a result of energy manipulation and not applicable to therian directly.

So... yeah, that's just my latest theory and I hope it sticks.
