Nsashaell Re-introduction
Hi again. We originally joined these forums about six months ago, but a lot has changed and I feel it's prudent to make us a re-introduction thread. I hope you don't mind. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

My name is Erif, and I'm part of a multiple system called Nsashaell. We have three therians, three Otherkin and three humans; four male and five female. This time, plurality isn't the main reason we're here. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> Though we will happily discuss it if asked. Since our three therians teamed up to share an account over on Werelist (Huntresses), the three non-therian Otherkin in the system have been thinking a lot about our Otherkinity and have decided to appropriate this account for the three of us. We're all three at an information-gathering stage and so OKP seems like the place to go. Other system members may comment occasionally, but we always plan to sign our posts regardless. (As a side note, is it possible to change the account's username, or is that permanently fixed?)

Like I said, I'm Erif. I identify as dragonkin: an Asian dragon, which I have just scratched the surface researching. For me, being a dragon is just an odd quirk. I literally can't imagine myself as not being a dragon. I know I'm a serpent-like Asian one because my phantom body is long, snake-like, and twists around behind me as I walk. My tail does a strange, corkscrew floating motion even when I sit still. I look pretty stereotypical, like anything you'd find on a tattoo or old painting, with the short horns and the wave-like ridge on my back, even the catfish whiskers. I tend to shift colors, sometimes gold, sometimes red, and sometimes black and orange. I suspect this might have to do with being indecisive more than anything. I don't see my draconity as anything remotely spiritual; I have a fairly scientific viewpoint.

I will allow (and/or force) my cohorts to introduce themselves.

Uh. Hey. I'm Arion. I guess I've been a demon for a really, really long time, but I don't really like talking about it. Mostly I just plan to read some stuff. I dunno, I'm this red furred composite beast thing with big dragon wings and fire going down along my spine. In the headspace I can manipulate fire with my hands and thoughts, but (duh) not in the real world. I don't have phantom limbs unless I do a chakra meditation, in which case I can feel my entire form, but I only get talked into that kind of thing occasionally.

I guess I mostly hope I'm not deluding myself or making myself more crazy. But I can't remember not having a serious fire affinity or not being a demon.

Uh... I don't really have anything else to say. >.>

Hi! What's up? I'm Shawn! And by far the most talkative of this lot. XD Anyway, I've been doing a lot of thinking lately (I have a bad habit of obsessing over things outside myself and ignoring who I am completely, which I've been trying to kick) and have realized that my long-standing identity as an angel is not going to go anywhere. I kept waiting to grow out of it, and trying to, but all it's done is solidified more. So I'm finally giving myself the opportunity to find out more about angelkin in general.

From what I've read, phantom wings are a big deal, and for me the main thing that I have. They are giant white swan-like wings coming out of my shoulders, and I've had them for ages, basically all the time. Plus my nature is one that would rather help other people at the expense of myself, which may or may not be related, and I do have memories of one past life that I can't shake and vague feelings about a second much farther back in time. I'm somewhat skeptical of my memories and past lives in general, but things I've seen and felt are hard to just brush off and ignore, so I'm taking them with a grain of salt as I pursue them for now.

Mostly I just want to read more about other angelkin and get a feel for how people define it in the community. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> I'm not Christian, and don't believe in Christian mythology at all, so I'm assuming I must belong to a different type or group, or else have a really terrible memory lol.

Oh, one more thing- I have a weird association with jackals as well, but it isn't therianthropy, more like a symbol. This confuses me a lot because I do get a phantom jackal tail, but I know my feelings aren't therian feelings because we have a range of therians in our system and I don't seem to have much in common with them. o.O So I'm not sure what the jackal thing has to do with me, but am trying to puzzle it out. It seems to relate to the Egyptian god Anubis in some way. Spirituality-wise, I'm an agnostic.

Anyway, it's all kind of a giant mystery, and I'm looking at it. So there you are! I think I've babbled long enough so nice to (re)meet you all!

Re: Nsashaell Re-introduction
Glad to re-meet you guys! And the name change has been done.

As soon as you mentioned angelic with an attachment to jackals I immediately thought of Anubis. It's possible to be an angelic (or celestial) from a pantheon different than the Judeo-Christian one. In fact, I believe there's an Egyptian angel around here somewhere. Freelanceangel, I think?

Re: Nsashaell Re-introduction
Thanks! Much better. <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

And I've PMed freelanceangel, and am looking into the Egyptian stuff. I have definite ties to Anubis, I know for certain, and since that's more or less the only thing besides white wings I have to go on, I figure I ought to pay attention to it. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
