    I believe in souls/spirits, and believe that my otherkin identity is directly caused by a parallel/concurrent life. Avoiding a Wall of Text by linking a more thorough description: https://www.kinmunity.com/blogs/entry/1614-parallel-lives-percantages-of-souls-and-other-weird-stuff/

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. Test your vocabulary!

    22,700. Significantly better than the last time I did one of these. I also got 112 on the grammar thing. On a related note, http://Vocabulary.com is pretty neat, although, I believe it also only allows for English. It has some pre-made flashcards and automatically cycles them in and out of your list based on how well you remember them. You can also look up words and decide whether you want to add them to your list.
  2. I'm not...

    I'm an aquatic creature, but I'm not a fan of having my head underwater...
  3. The Let it All Out Thread

    I was keeping really calm about everything that's going on right now and all of a sudden every little thing sets me off. I can't even be productive for more than 5 minutes without getting frustrated with something pointless and having to stop. I should know better than to force myself not to react because this is what happens every time.
  4. Favorite game console

    Are you telling me that you don't have the third arm Nintendo expected you to!? Mine is probably the Switch... I prefer handheld, since I can take it with me (and because, growing up, it meant I didn't have to share ) so the Switch is pretty much everything I could possibly want out of a console.
  5. What're You Listening To?

    Not really the same kind of music as most other people are posting but it helps me relax. Also makes for decent meditation music.
  6. Ban The User Above You

  9. Dreams vs Reality. Something I Hope Helps

    This formatting is rather difficult to read, and the grammar doesn't help. In response to the content: Everyone here probably thinks you are a troll. I definitely think you're a troll, but I'm willing to give you a chance to show that you're not. Do you have any anything to support... Any of these claims? They're all pretty far out there. You can't do the impossible. That's what impossible means. We know we're not crazy. But then people roll in and claim they can do things like physically change their form and create an "anthro society" while talking about how Jesus and Buddha both followed their 3 Easy Steps to (PERMANENTLY!) Unlocking Your Third Eye. No wonder everyone else thinks we're crazy. If you're not a troll, I'd really recommend reading through the library. These articles in particular discuss what otherkin/therianthropy means and might help clear up some of your apparent confusion and assumptions.
  10. EDIT: I kind of forced this to make everything make sense and ignored some conflicting information. I'm trying to find a better explanation. I guess I'll just leave this here for now. The more I learn, the more my kintype feels like a giant salamander (although, bigger than an actual giant salamander), but with ears, wings, and horns. The wings are still confusing me. I previously said I had antlers, and while I think my horns are shaped like antlers typically are, I don't think I ever shed them. The ears I'm sticking with. Those make sense and seem to be correct, at least right now. Anyway. I've been using "snake" as a descriptor of the base of my form, but salamander makes a lot more sense. I couldn't figure out the scales; I probably just don't have them. I feel more like my skin has a shininess to it than I actually feel I have scales. It makes the legs part of the base form, which is a sort of bonus. Salamanders don't have claws, but I also don't have any particular memories of them, so it's very possible I don't have any. Unlike snakes, they can see in color, and my memories definitely aren't in greyscale, though that could just have to do with interpretation/processing them with a brain that can see color. Also, they don't have forked tongues, and a forked tongue is something I probably would've noticed by now. After doing some research, a few of the reasons I said snake also make sense for salamanders. Primarily, salamanders swim using mostly their bodies and tails, and not really their legs, which is how I remember swimming. Salamanders also shed/molt their skin like reptiles are known to do. Some of them also have more elongated bodies, which would make them look more like an eastern dragon than the typical western dragon. TL;DR I'm a really weird, mythical salamander. But not the one with the fire and stuff. Maybe.
  11. Whatcha eatin?

    Cheddar brats with fried carrots & cabbage. I think this is the first time I've cooked something and actually been really happy with it. Carrots and cabbage now go with everything.
  12. Wings are Weird

    "Edit": Went hiking today up in the mountains. Triggered some shifts and now I think I might have wings and just temporally was unable to use them. Gah. I suppose they make sense if I were in a mountainous region, which is something I've been considering, or if I climbed up onto something like a tree. They still become less advantageous with size, but they don't lack evolutionary sense. (Not that silly things don't happen in nature anyway...) They could also be an intimidation factor, or I could just be a clumsy flier. I'm probably overthinking this... But it's hard to leave a topic be when I'm getting contradictory information. Being somewhere high up is probably not helping the confusion. Wanting to fly is a common human experience. I could just be subconsciously forcing shifts to match. I could also have wing-arms. It doesn't feel right, but while I'm questioning this, it's a consideration that's worth going back to. Basically... I don't know anything about my wings right now.
  13. Favorite animals

    Rats, Cats, Lizards, Bats, Salamanders, Snakes. (So... Familiars?)
  14. Wings are Weird

    Now that I finally feel like I've got some details pinned down, the ones I thought I'd already figured out are confusing me. To be fair, this is something I was confused about before, but it makes even less sense now that I've learned a bit more about my size/form/habitat... Why wings? Why would I have wings if I were as big as the river I lived in? If there were no room to spread them? I have memories of them as a hatchling. I almost always feel them when I shift. So I can't call it a cameo and be done with it. Having them doesn't just bother me on a logical level, though. It doesn't feel right. In my more recent/older memories, I don't have them anymore. I haven't flown in ages. But I still have that instinct. I also have flashes - they might be memories, but they get confused; they're more likely daydreams based on some kind of instinct - of trying to fly, but not being as able to as I feel I should be. Maybe this is based on a memory, or an anxiety I had at one time. I'm not really sure. I guess what makes the most sense based on this is that I somehow naturally lost my wings as part of maturing. Or maybe I'm overthinking it, and they just aren't useful anymore. I don't really know, and I'm not sure how to go about finding out. It's also possible I just never had them in the first place, though that would mean re-thinking a lot of things... Regardless, this pretty much kills the Ying-Lung theory (which, to be fair, already had some holes), which puts me back a pretty big step.
