WELL UH, hi guys.
SO, I just typed up this whole series of paragraphs and the story of my life, only to hit the save button, respond with, "WHATWHAT, dears gods, go BACK!" only to be met with a blank page, so I'll just sum everything up for you!

I have been a part of a different Otherkin Community for a few years now. I am a Phoenix otherkin, and yes, I'm aware that it's cliche, and that my self-mythology has gotten me in trouble with various other Phoenix-kin, so I'm not too liked amongst my ... er ... kind? WELL, I can't say that really. I've only met about two others on the net, and one believed to be of an Earth-make---meaning their type was born and lived here on Earth and were rather small with common bird tones, such as brown and cream. I, on the other hand, personally believe my other self, my former self, comes from another level of being, another plane of existence where they can take human guise; but their true forms are massive and colourful. But that's me.

So, I was kinda brought into this scene by a friend of mine who I have known for nearly 7 years now who is also a form of otherkin who also has Walk-ins. She's my best friend (she's about 30?), and she told me to look into Otherkins---though she used a different phrase---for myself after hearing me express my feelings alienated from the rest of society, amongst other such complaints. And so, I did. And, I felt something, but I wasn't sure I wanted to feel that way. I explored around; mythkin and therians, but I felt most settled into Phoenix. Ironically, she thought as much all along too.

For a while I denied it. I think I became aware of it around 13, maybe 14, but denied it until I was about 17ish. I'm nearly 19 now, so it's been a few years since I've come to terms with it. Still tryin to get my barings.

... And I'm hoping to get involved with another community to help explore myself once more. So hello, my name is Ember, and it's a pleasure to meet you.

Re: WELL UH, hi guys.
Welcome <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> Your personal variety of phoenix reminds me somewhat of Supernatural. The phoenix in the show was human shaped and could turn others to ash. Very cool episode. Tangents aside, how did you reach the conclusion that your kintype is phoenix?

Re: WELL UH, hi guys.
Oh, goodness! Don't get me started on Supernatural! Love the show, but felt a little awkward about the Phoenix episode. At first I was all giddy, but then when I saw their interpratation I got all, "Eeeh, alighty theeen," about it. I'd have to re-watch it to tell you why. And sorry if my spelling is off; I'm at school and lacking a spell check at the moment. XD

Well, honestly, I find all reasons are silly, and I've always believed that everything can have a reason other then being 'kin, but I've always been of a skeptical mind, but here are some reasons I guess:

Cinnamon. Holysmokes. DO NOT get me started on my life for cinnamon. Probably not the best one to start off with, but it's like my aphro--well, yunno. It's my comfort food, and if given the chance, I'll use it in cooking as often as I can. I also actually have an alergy to mint. Not only does it give me wicked headaches, but I get physical ill from it. I also experience phantom wings, and again, that's something that could be caused for many reasons ...

I'm naturally very fiery, ruled by my heart and impulses. I'm generally a fire cracker, really. There are far deeper reasons that I cannot fully express, but there are a group of walk-ins/multiples whom I have happened to meet by chance who I have a strong emotional connection with, to the point where it feels like there's a blockade up at times when I try to recall memories with them that brings me to the point of frustration; and I mean past memories. This group happens to be made up of one Phoenix and a bunch of Koritaka (ice phoenix). And it is these feelings, partially, that lead me to believe I have a past life with them, and there have been a lot of crazy coincidences that have made them wonder about my other identity as well.

Welcome to OKP! <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

I think the phoenix is one of my favorite mythological creatures; my icon is of one.
How does cinnamon correlate to otherkinity? Are phoenixes known for liking cinnamon? Also, I'm curious to know what other otherkin community you came from.

Icon: original here.

If you hit the saved button, your post was saved...er, somewhere. If I had to guess, it would be somewhere on your user control panel page, more than likely under 'manage drafts'. So your original post might not actually be lost.

Much like how I tend to get whenever there's a new werewolf on TV, a movie, in books I'm reading. I think "maybe they'll get it right this time" only to have my hopes dashed with it always being another "big, stupid, hairless monster". <!-- s:roll: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt=":roll:" title="Rolling Eyes" /><!-- s:roll: -->

Anyway, welcome to OKP!

Phoenix are actually known for having an admiration for cinnamon and an affliction towards mint. There are even stories that the Phoenix make their nests out of cinnamon twigs and bark.

And thank you for the welcome! <3

Thank you for the warm welcome! My attendance might be slightly sporadic as I am prone to flightiness, but I intend to come around as often as I can.
