The Hot Seat
Sparked by the topic here on questioning people on their belief's, a thread where you can ask to be questioned and other members can grill you with the tough stuff.

Please remember that this is only intended to gain information and no member should feel as if they are being interrogated or that others are making fun of them. If you are asked questions, please answer as clearly and honestly as you can. This is not meant to be a public flogging section so please do not harass people for what they believe. Keep it polite and professional, thank you.

Re: The Hot Seat
Well, I'd volenteer myself in the interest of fairness but I'm not sure I've posted enough information to have people poke at.
Ofcourse, if you still have some questions, do feel free to ask.

Re: The Hot Seat
Haha, good work Eli. If you hadn't of made this, I would've.

On that note, I'll go first! Nobody's ever questioned me thoroughly and it would be interesting!

EDIT: Gah! Beaten! Fine, second then!

Re: The Hot Seat
Ok well since I opened the thread, I feel obligated to get the ball rolling so I'll give you each a few questions to get started.

Freetha:
Can you please give a brief description of what exactly a Rakshasa Elf Halfbreed is? Also, can you tell us how you came to this conclusion and what thoughts/meditations/etc. pointed you to these particular 'kin types?

Kayako:
What do you consider a polymorph? Are all shapeshifters polymorphs? Do you consider polymorph to be a subtype of demon? If so, please explain why. Do you have memories of being incorporeal? If so, please describe your memories.

Do those sound like essay questions or what? <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

I don't consider all kinds of shapeshifters to be polymorphs.

I consider a "polymorph" to be a kind of non-physical entity, much like a demon or shadow, that's prime ability is being able to change it's shape, appearance, and even "feel" at will. It's a very loose definition, and rightly so, because in general terms what's commonly called a "polymorph" in the otherkin community is any shapeshifting spirit of unknown origins.

As for whether or not I consider a polymorph a kind of demon, I think that some are, yet others aren't. Like I said, it's a group loosely shoved together because of a few characteristics, for the sake of having something to call such entities. So obviously, some polymorphs are more demon-ish than others, and are more likely to fall under the "demon" label. The prime reason I myself don't use the term demon is only because there is the slightest energetic difference between what I would call a true demon and myself. I can't really describe in words what that difference is, but I think Meirya said it best when she called me something between a demon and a fae.

As for memories, I don't currently have any "hardcore" memories, but I do have memories in the sense of feelings and energetic sensations I may have experienced. For instance, I can faintly recall the feeling of weightlessness, and of moving just through my own will without physical muscle contraction and such. I can also remember the feeling of not having to breathe, and of not having a real "body". It's hard to describe the latter, it's sort of like.....I had a form, but it all felt like it was in perpetual motion while still being "me". Which brings up another subtle memory, the sense of "vibration". Those are the kinds of things I have memories of. So far, though, I can't remember anything I specifically did.

Re: The Hot Seat
Kayako, so all polymorphs are shapeshifters? Why not just use the label of shapeshifter for yourself?

And if you consider yourself a cross between a demon and fae, have you looked into the possibility that you may be fae instead? What about a member of the (I think) unseelie court? Aren't they considered "dark" faeries?

What brought you to the conclusion that you were a polymorph?

Hmm, I will give it a try which may hopefully increase my own knowledge about myself. <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

You mark your gender as 'none', how does that work? And how does that factor into your daily life living with a gender? Have you ever wondered that complications/issues/confusion in your mundane life have led to the conclusion for your kintype gender?

To Elinox: Where/when will you be a physical wolf? Will you have to sacrifice intelligence or sentience? Are you the top of the food chain there? As a wolf, will you lament for the role of man? Will you have magic?
