You guys have surely noticed that I haven't been on much lately. I've mentioned it before, but I'm now at the point that I'm starting to drift away. As I've also said before, I've dedicated Tuesday as the day I post on this site (I can post on other days, but I force myself to post on Tuesday at least.) As such, I'm planning to post a status update each week, both to let you guys know if anything interesting happens, and to ease me into talking on the forum. Right now, I don't have a lot to report. Things are going ok. GenCon is coming up, so that's fun, albeit also worrisome. The funny thing is that the system that caused my major problems two years ago is still one that I play every year at GenCon. There are pros and cons to it. The fact that it mirrors my own experiences and beliefs is what makes it both fun to play and dangerous. In addition to a helping of that game, I'm also going to be trying a more lighthearted system which involves playing as mythical creatures that are teachers at a magical school. Sounds like fun. Hopefully, like last year, my preparedness will help me avoid any potential disasters.
At this point, perhaps you're wondering about what any of this has to do with the title of this post. Well, I'm getting to that now. There's an aspect of my kin identity and my understanding of myself that has been front and center long enough that I need an abbreviation to make it easier to discuss. So, in discussions about forced transformation, I'll call it FT. It allows me to bring it up to people without giving them details too, which is nice. FT is far from being a new topic on this blog, and it's part and parcel of the RPG system that I mentioned playing every year at GenCon (it's called Changeling.) At this rate I may need to become a VIP so I can fit the full glossary in my signature...
Do you guys remember my "fanciful theories"? Basically, these are the theories that suggest that I was somehow forceably transformed in a past life. And I have to be honest: despite what I call them and my insistence of how unlikely they are...I really have been thinking that one of them is true. It's just the best explanation I have. And yes, I know I've said this before. But lately it's starting to move from "working theory" to "permanent theory" and that's a bit odd. I need to discover more about what seems to have happened to me in a past life, because while I obviously don't claim to believe in this theory completely, it has been my best explanation for things so far. What do you guys think? Maybe I should ask on the forum. One thing I do know though is that my break from self discovery is over, at least in this regard.
There is more to discuss, but Pan is (correctly) insisting that I get back to work. Later, everyone!
