Olm just got Stranger
Hey, I was talking to some people from another site, they told me about this place, thought 'hmm, well, I might as well check it out".

So, here I am. I'm Olm, or Ash if you feel so inclined. I believe I am a Red European stag. I've considered this to be true for half a year now. Now, the usual thing for a new member to be asked is, "what makes you think you are 'X'?"

The usual response is something along the lines of "Oh, I have an affinity and experienced dream shifts, mental shifts and the like..."

Well, all of that is true with me as well, minus the 'affinity'. I never really felt a connection to deer of any sort. But then the dreams, the shifts... all that started happening in ever more increasing amounts. I was a little embarrased to tell the truth, at first I thought I was a deer, not a stag, and I thought it was a little odd for a guy to think he used to be a girl. After a few more weeks I was noticing that I was experiencing 'phantom antlers'. Just when I'd gotten over the whole 'I used to be female' as well!

Anywho, as per usual, any questions are welcome, I'm happy to talk, thanks in advance for any welcome gestures and I'll try to enjoy my time here without disturbing anybodies peace. Cya round.

Olm.

Welcome!

I've found you don't need an affinity to any sort of animal to have it as your theriotype. I certainly didn't have one for deer myself other than I really like the taste of venison.

Sure, it woulda been awesome if I was some sort of preditory animal... But as I'm sure you are aware, you aren't always what you would choose to be. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Anyway, I hope to speak with you more in the future.

Thanks Shang, I guess I'll take a decent look around tonight...

And I completely agree with you Damh, a preditory animal would have been... easier. The sheer amount of wolves is enough to make us an oddity and I am a little bit sick of all the jokes about how I am the prey and they are the hunter.

Predator or prey makes no difference here. Welcome to OKP!
