Other-than-human Identity

  • I am...
    an otherkin
  • Primary Identity
    Draconic

Otherkin Identity

  • Kin Name
    Thunderwing
  • Kintype(s)
    Eastern Dragon
  • Kintype(s) Description
    Large, blue-scaled dragon, with four legs and one pair of wings but a snake-like body. Has scaled but rabbit- or horse-like ears underneath a large pair of antler-shaped horns.
  • Time of Awakening
    2013
  • Personal Awakening
    My awakening was more of a gradual process than a single event. I first felt non-human at a very young age, but it was a very vague feeling. This developed into feelings of being a "half-dragon" by 2011, but I didn't really accept the idea at first (largely because of the way I was introduced to the concept of otherkin). I'm fuzzy on the details - my memory with timelines is not the best - but the first time I remember clearly accepting myself as draconic was in 2013.

  1. So... I've made at least one other post about some guesses at physical/biological stuff about my kintype. I'm giving it another go. I'll sort things by how certain I am of them, on a rough scale of 1-5. And of course, there's always a chance I could be wrong about any of this. I'll probably keep updating this and use the comments as a changelog of sorts. Hopefully it'll help me keep better track of what ideas came from when, and keep me from concluding anything before I have the evidence to do so. 5 (Yep, That's Me) Serpentine form: Since fully awakening to the kind of dragon that I am... This has pretty much been a constant. My "form" (rather, the form I thought I had) changed many times while I was still figuring things out (partially because of cameo shifts, partially due to guessing, partially because I tried to force myself to be whatever my favorite idea was at the time. Hey. I was a noob). Wings: Wings've been another constant, from even since before awakened. (Tail also has, but... if your form is serpentine, that doesn't really count :P) I've had phantom shifts of this at least since high school (my memory before that is terrible, and I don't really trust it, so this is as far back as I'm going). I've also had other shifts relating to wings, but that could also just be normal human stuff. Aquatic: Another thing that's been constant since before awakening. I've always known I was near some form of water and was closely tied to it. Mostly Irrelevant, but: Actually, I just realized that everything I shift to is aquatic in some way... Hm. I also know that this water was flowing, but I have trouble gleaning comparisons of size from what memories I have. Animalistic: All of my mental shifts are a lot more animalistic than one would expect with how dragons are typically depicted. 4 (Pretty Solid, Feel Good About it, but a Little Bit of Doubt) Scales: I have a couple memories of finding shed skin in which that skin definitely has scales. I'm pretty sure I was the only thing like me nearby, so it would've had to have been mine. I also get mental shifts of wanting to shed, which adds to the likelihood that it was mine. Scales would also just make a lot of sense, but I'm hesitant to accept it because it's kind of the "default" for dragons. I don't have much else to go on for this, and there are alternatives that make sense. Claws: Another "default option." I don't have much to say about this one. I don't have any direct evidence that my draconic self does have claws, but I can't picture myself without them. Quadruped: I (almost) always feel, whether in shifts, dreams, or memories, like I have four legs, but it's hard to be sure whether this is really the case, or if it's my human brain's interpretation of it. The occasional wing-arm shift helps to call this into doubt. 3 (Probably, but not Sure, Solid Alternatives) Antler-Shaped Something: I know I keep going back and forth on whether they're truly antlers or horns (which I'll get to in a minute), but I pretty consistently see them as antler-shaped. However, when I'm so unsure about things I do have good evidence for, I can't really rate this any higher because it's mostly just a feeling. I think the only reason it is rated this high is because I doubt I'm going to get any information that contradicts it, because it's hard to see the top of your own head. Blue: I think I was blue, based on memories and self-image. However, this is another matter of sifting through how much is true, and how much is human brain interpretation. Big: I feel pretty good about this one, but... Animals can be bad at judging their own size. I think I'm the biggest thing in those there woods... But I could just be the draconic equivalent of a Chihuahua. Amphibious and Reptilian: This is mostly just based on compiling the other information, but... I think if we were to try and classify my species based on Earth biology, it'd be somewhere between reptilian and human. 2 (Best Guess of the Options Available) Carnivore: I used to thing I was omnivorous, but after sorting through information, the only food-related memories I have left that might be accurate are of eating fish. Development: I believe some conflicting information may be from memories of different stages of development. I think I started out looking pretty much just like a snake with wings, then grew legs, then horns, then developed a fish-like tail. This especially would help make sense of some of the flight stuff I was trying to sort out before. Eel Power: I've mentioned in a chat somewhere that I think I have that zapping mechanism that electric eels are known for. This is based on a handful of mental shifts and one memory. However, something feels off about it. 1 (I Got Nothin' Else) Antlers: I think my horns were true antlers (that is, they shed and re-grow seasonally), but I flip-flop on this way too much to rank it any higher. I get shifts pertaining to this stuff, but that's about all I have to go on, and I get conflicting information about how often they would shed/how large they would grow. Fish Tail: I had one shift the other day where I had a fish tail. It matched how the mermaids I've talked to describe their tail shifts. That's really all I have to go on. This is a very new idea so it's going on the list; hopefully I'll find out more about this.

    Just kidding... My jaws are all achey and one of them has broken through my gum. >:(
  3. Had a bizarre ph-shift yesterday. Need to write some of that down when I have a chance... But not time for much other than short visits to the site. (I know it says I'm almost always on, but... I leave tabs open.)

  4. Dumbest thought of the day!

    Well, @Syan, why IS there a traffic cone in the basement?
  5. Daily Thought

    Just looked at registering for classes and I might actually be on track to graduate in 2-3 years. I thought I was a lot further out than I am.
  6. Dumbest thought of the day!

    A dinosaur? An alien? An undiscovered cousin of the platypus? :P ...Mine is that the first thing my brain came up with in response to this was a platypus >_<

    Me, a giant river-dwelling carnivore, every time I go to the grocery store: *Bursts into song* So long, and thanks for all the fish.
  8. Daily Thought

    I'd say teal. But that's pretty much a kind of blue.
  9. The Let it All Out Thread

    My wisdom teeth also never came in. Dentist said they'd... wait. @Kerguelen, are you me? :P Should probably ask a dentist about it next time I see one, since they supposedly were coming in straight, and now aren't coming in at all... but meh.
  10. The Decoder Game

    Haha, awesome job! (High fives) I figured plugging it back in directly would just give the same thing but apparently not.
  11. The Decoder Game

    ...Well, that's what I got. But I didn't know where to go from there. D094D0B5D0BCD0BED0BD2DD0BAD0BBD0BED183D0BD20D0B4D0BE20D181D0B8D18520D0BFD0BED18020D0B6D0B8D0B2D0B5D182202E2E2E Comes up if you convert the binary to hex.
  12. Hm. I guess I'm gonna vent here for a bit. I need to get some of this stuff out. I really feel, lately, that I can't be myself. Being draconic isn't something I think about much when I'm alone, but as soon as someone else is around, I'm worried that someone will catch me doing something weird. People already think I'm weird as it is, and I have trouble getting along with others on just a human level. The only person I can relax around is my SO. I haven't told him about being dragonkin, but he's read some of my posts because I tend to leave Kinmunity up, and he seems pretty cool with it. Occasionally he'll comment on it, but never in a bad way. Actually... He noticed some of my mannerisms before he saw any of this stuff. He still didn't say anything negative, but we'd joke about it sometimes. Some of my friends I could probably relax around -- not tell them, but also not have to be so careful about everything -- but we only ever meet in public. I've been trying to get people to come over for RPG's or board games, but I'm far away from the people I would be comfortable with doing that, and we're all really busy right now, so... Meh. It's supposed to pick up in a couple weeks, but we'll see how it goes. I'd like to have time to figure out some more 'kin stuff. Go through more sources, figure out where these memories of humanoids are coming from, figure out why my home feels way too similar to something that would be on Earth. Mostly... sorting through details of memories and figuring out what really happened, and what's just my human brain filling in the blanks. And also finding out if there's something more accurate. At this point, "lizard" seems more accurate than "dragon," but calling myself a lizard makes me sound like a therian, and I'm far from anything that lives on Earth. I'm also not really anything like a lizard. I'm just... me? I think the name thing is stressing me out, too. I don't know why. But I feel that I need something to call myself, something that references what I am and not something I'm vaguely similar to, sort of. On the upside, I did get to sort through the other-hearted thing. That thread helped a lot. I would love to be a bat, because they're adorable and fascinating critters. But I don't feel the kind of longing that people talked about, and there's not a sense of belonging when I see them. The other heart-type I was considering is more something I'd like to emulate, and an aesthetic I like. I don't want to talk about that one because it's a bit weird. But I guess it coming up negative on both of those feels like a bit of a disappointment. I figured something out, but I feel... embarrassed? For it turning out to be nothing. I don't know why that is. (Dammit, brain, this was supposed to be a positive point). Hopefully in a week, once this round of exams is over, I'll get to focus on some of this stuff a bit more. And stop stressing over it. I don't mind being a dragon, or being a human... I just mind being both at the same time.
