One Celestial from the Stars
That's me. =]
I have gone back and forth about kintype and other such things for years, coming up with different theories that were only vaguely related. Extraterrestrial, Djinn, polymorph, therian and fae are all words that I have used to describe myself. I have recently begun to understand the connecting link between them, as well as the intense phantom sensations that I experience.
I believe that all of those terms are partially correct in describing my kinship, though not necessarily my "species".
I have, I think, met another of my species. This being is non-physical, an energy being, I would say, without language and without a completely static shape. It began hanging about and I would "feel" it occasionally, and I eventually began to communicate with it, though it takes quite a bit of effort as I am a being who uses language. I think that I have also met a couple of shadows out and about, as well, and so Archer's mention of "white light-y cousins" made me think there may be or may have been a connection. I have no concrete ideas about why this being, my "companion", has taken to following me about but I do get feelings from it that give me a tiny idea.
I will describe my "species", explain why I jumped on other incomplete labels, say what I can about the origins of the species and, hopefully, the information will be useful to someone in the future.
I wish I had a name for the species. =/
They are "from the stars", I believe feeding off of the fusion energy produced by stars in space. I hypothesize that a greater number of them may be found drifting around the larger stars. They are "star-like" in that they take on the qualities of the energy they consume. They are not solid, physical beings, though they may be able to compress themselves into such in an environment that requires it. They are polymorphic in the sense that moving energy may change it's apparent shape, though I think it is more like hot molecules bouncing off of one another that causes the irregularity. They "split" into two, or many, separate beings when there is enough fusion energy present to feed all the parts. I believe that they have an above average ability to sense, process and otherwise manipulate different kinds of energy. My "companion" has tried to share with me what it is like to just wiggle about in space, blinking from one star to the next.
I felt that I was an extraterrestrial due to the feelings that I have when I look at or think about the stars, thought I could have been a Djinn as I feel an non-solid body would better suit me and because I have a knack for "making wishes come true" (which, it turns out, has merely to do with exercising personal will), am polymorphic in a way, have mental "shifts" like a therian in which I think/feel more human or "star creature" depending on.. well, a number of things, and called myself fae or fae-like because of the similarity in energy, as well as being a bit of a trickster, myself.
The phantom sensations I feel, I think, come from a common "form" assumed by many of my kind when confined to a physical environment.
Feel free to ask questions. I'll post more information as it is .. revealed to me, or whatever. XD
