The Otherkin Wiki...behold the fluff!
Wow, just wow, this is scary:http://otherkin.wikia.com/wiki/Otherkin_Wiki

Their information is not only blatantly incorrect in most, if not all, categories, but it's offensive to those of us who know better. Also, editing is locked on most, if not all topics, meaning that this total misinformation cannot be changed. The article on celestials alone made me want to scream. This kind of junk is why we face such stereotypes outside of the otherkin community and points out what stereotypes are often held inside of it. There are zero sources cited and whomever has written that junk is clearly clueless. I read the celestials section and part of the angels section...and that alone sent me running screaming into the night. I'd like to beat whomever wrote those articles upside the head with the stupid stick. I mean, demons listed as celestials? Wow.

The only part that isn't complete BS is the therian article (unless it's been edited to include total BS) cause I wrote it.

"Dragons are most often viewed as evil, fire-breathing mythical creatures from Medievil stories, but, they are in fact very powerful shapeshifting mages. The most powerful Dragons have two forms, their dragon form, and a form in which they can "blend in" with the crowd."

I could do this? I would have liked to know this a while ago. Would've made traveling SO much easier. e.e Feh. Well, at least it's not from the sort of stand-point ED has, but still. The stupid hurts.

Well, only trace amounts of stupid in the vampire page and no stupid in the demonkin page (as that one isn't written yet...). But how stupid are these people?

"One of the rarest type of Otherkin, Celestials are beings of considerable power, and most commonly found in this group are Angelkin. Celestials often are found to be very cocky, and/or arrogant, by those around them, and this seems to be caused by their imense power, whether they realize it themselves or not."

I don't know whether to be insulted, angry, or impressed with myself as a celestial *bangs head against wall*.

Quote:Sanguine Vampires are those who need to drink blood in order to live. Often characterized by everyday society to be extremely pale individuals with black hair, and elongated upper canine teeth, and of the Gothic culture, many Vampires actually will adopt this image, in order to hide in the open, so to speak. Fooling people into believing they're just your everyday Vampire wanna-be, or goth.

Ummm...What? So I guess my lawyer friend with the kids and family doesn't count...or the other one I know that takes his kid to soccor practice. And of course this is for sanguines only...psy's can't possibly be goth. <!-- s:roll: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt=":roll:" title="Rolling Eyes" /><!-- s:roll: --> fun stuff.

Re: The Otherkin Wiki...behold the fluff!
I just checked the ones that pertained to me- dragon and polymorph. Dragon-kin are barely touched on at all, which I'm glad about because really, it's kind of a varied group to explain. Polymorph wasn't there at all, so I considered writing a page, but then decided that it wasn't really worth the effort. People that go there are either going to believe everything or believe nothing, and it's a lot easier, for me, to just tell someone to forget all the false information they learned on the topic instead of having to sort out with them what qualifies.
