Otherkin Identity

  • Kintype(s)
    Snow Leopard, Western Desert Dragon, Rhys (Borderlands Universe)
  • Kintype(s) Description
    A female snow leopard, not much else to say there, nothing special about me. This is the "strongest", in that I experience the most shifts related to this kintype (phantom, mental and dream).

    I was a medium build desert dragon, with a glittering golden/sand body. I had three forward facing toes on each foot and darker wings. In terms of my face I had two faint upward curving horns and a pointed ridge at the end of my snout, as well as a "beard-like" structure on my chin tapering to sharp points. Experience mostly phantom shifts, but with one or two mental shifts.

    I am also fictionkin, Rhys from TFTB. I did have a previous fictionkin identity, but soon realised this was actually just a fictionhearted connection (whoops). In terms of this kintype, I mostly experience mental sifts, although I have had a few phantom shifts.
  • Time of Awakening
    Original "Awakening" around 2008, discovered community in 2014
  • Primary Identity
  • Personal Otherkin Experiences
    I experience rather frequent shifting, especially phantom shifts. My (often rarer) mental shifts mainly tend to occur under stress or when dealing with emotional turmoil, but nonetheless are controllable. I live my life no different to any non-kin. At the end of the day, I'm still a human being.

  1. What're You Listening To?

    I found it fitting to listen to all my favourite Linkin Park songs today, this one really hit hard.
  2. Sad news for fans of Linkin Park

    Heard the news around an hour or so ago now, quite honestly have just come out of the denial phase now. I was praying it was some hoax, but as soon as the BBC put out an article it hit me. They've been a huge inspiration to me throughout my life and helped me survive hard times, shaped me down to my very online name. It's shocking and heartbreaking to hear. My heart goes out to his friends and family. I'm sure many people here know firsthand what a cruel, heartless bitch depression is. It's so sad he felt the need to resort to this; but he'll always live on in the hearts and minds of many millions of people across the world. His light will never burn out. "When you've suffered enough and your spirit is breaking; you're growing desperate from the fight. Remember you're loved and you always will be. This melody will bring you right back home."
  3. Shocked beyond belief at the news about Chester. RIP man, you were an inspiration to me. ;-;

      I heard this afternoon and it's probably some of the worst news I've had all year :c


  4. If I were any lazier I'd swear I was slothkin. 

    1. kiror


      Are you sure you aren't? :p

    2. AshenFall


      If otherkin were going off personality traits alone then I'd say I definitely am lol

  5. What're You Listening To?

    Listening to Hollywood Undead again, it's been awhile, I forget just how perfect many of their songs are.
  6. What's your spirit animal?

    If we're referring here to a spirit animal in terms of a personal spirit guide taking the form of an animal (as opposed to spirit/totem animals of Native beliefs) then I have one. He's always gone by the name of Sovel and appears as a roe stag.
  7. Should the Voting Age be Lowered?

    Seems I'm in the minority here. I don't think the voting age should be lowered. Most certainly I am not saying people under the age of 18 aren't capable of making informed decisions on the future of their country, but I strongly believe the younger a person is, it doesn't matter about their knowledge, they are more easily swayed by emotions over experience. And when it comes to something as important as voting for a new government, acting upon emotion can produce horrific results. I agree with much of what Terro has already said. There's a reason the phrase "respect your elders" exists. And while it is true they do not always know what is best and "times change" (before anyone says anything about that), but they have experience of politics and world events that a mere child could never have. This is diverging slightly, but I've seen so much growing disrespect from the younger generations towards the elder generations, it leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Could I trust such easily emotional people to make an important decisions as a whole? I think not. To add to this, the younger generation have had a tendency not to give a damn about voting. In fact, it wasn't until the most recent election younger people actually made a surge in bothering to vote. Younger people are less likely to care about politics unless someone gives them incentive. Arguably, without a strong incentive like the last election gave them they could care less and that's the statistics talking. Lowering the voting age might make a few people vote, but more likely there'll be a bunch of people who have the opportunity but don't use it. There is little to no political education within our schools, I know when I was still under the voting age my knowledge and the knowledge of the vast majority of my classmates was minimal (and this was not all too long ago, I'm not an old fogey by any means). We were easily distracted by false promises parties make, not looking into the economical side, the legal side, the factual side. It's only with experience that one begins to see that these enticing "promises" are often no more than a piece of bait for the general public. While being 18 isn't a perfect age for voting, it's definitely my preferred age limit. It isn't too young and it isn't too old and it gives time to educate oneself on politics with a more mature view. Again that isn't to say younger people can't be educated and willing, but they lack that experience. Even at just two years lower at the age of 16 I'm skeptical about one's readiness to vote on such an important aspect of the future. Remember, from a biological standpoint the brain is still developing. It might just be two years, but at that age two years = a lot of development and "maturing" going on.
  8. Words that are stuck in your head

    "Schadenfreude" Had been in my head for a while recently. I consciously forgot what it meant or where I'd heard it (I knew it was a German word though), so I looked up the meaning and well, it just left me more confused haha. No idea why it sprang into mind but oh well, brains are odd. EDIT: Oh, also @Mirath I don't know about its use as a surname but fontaine is the French word for fountain or a spring (water-wise).
  9. Saurian Early Access Release Date!

    I've had my eye on Saurian for a while now, so excited for it, although I need to wait to get my new gaming PC first since my laptop can't really handle many games.
  10. Windows 7 or 10?

    For me it has to be Windows 10. At first I was a bit skeptical about it, especially after the abomination that was Windows 8, but with tweaking some settings (such as disabling and essentially completely getting rid of Cortana) and changing up as many privacy settings as possible, I'm content now. You have to jump through a lot of loopholes to get privacy up to a reasonably standard since the way it automatically configures things, but when you do everything is fine. The layout is good, the updates have made it a lot better since its debut. Windows 7 was good, but I've grown to love Windows 10 and I don't think anything could get me to switch back now.
  11. Things that irritate you.

    People Who Capitalise Every Single Word In A Sentence Outside Of A Title For Some Reason. kill me I tend to be easily irritated by bad grammar in general outside of informal chats (unless there's a reason for it). People asking me what I'm doing when I'm on my laptop or similar device. My personal goings on are my own, just because I don't want to show you or explain it, doesn't mean I'm doing something dodgy. People chewing extremely loudly. That one extroverted friend who's hellbent on getting you out to social events more because "you don't get out enough and you should enjoy yourself". My enjoyment is sitting at home playing video games thanks. Social Justice Warriors. There's a point when advocating for social equality tips and becomes excessively extreme and authoritarian and these people cross that line. On that note, people who mock others for calling themselves egalitarian for some reason (on both sides). Because it's bad to want equality? People who hate on or turn their back on family or friends for nothing more than having a differing political opinion. And on that note, bigots in general, especially bigots who partake in insane amounts of mental gymnastics to explain why when they do it, it "isn't bigotry". Zoo-haters. Modern zoos in Western countries are not what you claim they are and some species would be completely extinct by now if it wasn't for their existence. Self-diagnosers or other people who trivialize physical and mental illnesses and disabilities to "look cool". -_- Back onto more light-hearted ones: people who assume all us Brits are posh and proper. No. Just no. When I wake up and my teeth are embedded in my tongue. Ouch. When people find out I have a parrot and their first response is: "Oh can it talk?". Parrots are so much bloody more than mimickers. People who refer to humans as separate from and/or above other animals. What do you think we are, plants, bacteria, protozoa? Oh and we can't forget people who call apes monkeys. *flails with rage* And people who think that a bird eating another species of bird is cannibalism. That's like saying us eating a cow is cannibalism bruh. When there's that one guy with a squeaky shoe in a public area and you need to muster all your strength not to start laughing hysterically. And so many more but I think I've wrote enough for now.
  12. Music Tastes

    I'm a mostly rock and metal oriented individual, which is no surprise when I was raised listening to classic and older rock and punk. We're talking: AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Bob Dylan, Black Sabbath, Queen, Heart, Sex Pistols, Iron Maiden, et cetera. As I got older and started listening to my own music, I always stuck to rock and metal in some form, but also started delving into other genres too. Dubstep, drum and bass, electronic, also a bit of rap. Around 13 years old to around 15 I went through an emo phase listening to bands such as My Chemical Romance, Hawthorne Heights, Bullet for my Valentine, Black Veil Brides (dear gods why) and Panic! at the Disco to name but a few. I still appreciate, enjoy and listen to a lot of them now, but I've heavily branched out since then. That isn't to say a lot of the songs I listen to don't have lyrics and themes that would be classed as emo now, heh. If I had to pick a favourite I'd probably say Hollywood Undead. I'm also a big fan of Linkin Park, both old and new material, same with Fall Out Boy. Also Rise Against, Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, Starset, Skillet, Avenged Sevenfold, Bring Me The Horizon (especially Arca), A Day To Remember, Deaf Havana, Disturbed, Lindsey Stirling, Pendulum, Knife Party, the list goes on.
  13. What're You Listening To?

    When a song just really hits you in the feels.
  14. Floof's First Convention

    Yeah it was great, well worth it xD
  15. Floof's First Convention

    One day late with writing this, but honestly yesterday evening I was so exhausted I could hardly speak two coherent words, never mind type out a blog post. For those of you who don't know (because I'm terrible with remembering to say where or when I'm disappearing somewhere) I went to Confuzzled 2017 over the long weekend. My very first furry convention and to be honest, my very first convention of anything actually. So bloody good and for a self-proclaimed introvert I've never been so excitable and extroverted in my life as when I was there. A true transformation. Not gonna deny however, I was outright terrified when I first boarded my train down to Birmingham for the weekend. As I said I've never been to a convention before so had no idea what to expect and to add to that, until then I'd never even boarded a train alone in my entire life. I've suffered from severe social anxiety and panic disorder for years so never really wanted to before this. A nearly four hour journey down south for the northern floof and I was shaking. Waved off my dad and settled down into my seat, the little voice in the back of my head asking me: "What are you doing Ash? Are you insane? You'll never manage this!" But, and I still can't explain how, as soon as I left the train at the right station I became cool, calm, collected and extroverted. I was a very different guy. One weekend later and I'd done a ton of things I never thought I'd have the guts to do. Met up with @Mirath and @The Red Terror, also befriended a few really nice people while at the con too. Fairground rides, fursuit dances, stage shows, games, good food (that I most certainly didn't eat too much of...), a pretty cool otherkin/therian meetup, a crazy ass spider in the bedroom and going on a major spending spree at the Dealer's Den until I completely ran out of money. Got some art, paid for a couple commissions, a snow leopard tail and some foam bases to get started on (hopefully) making my own fursuit for 2018. I had a major fanboy moment upon seeing Beauty of the Bass (who doesn't?), still kinda sad I didn't get the chance to ask for a picture but oh well, there's always next year. A twelve hour straight sleep one night, fire alarm pranks (don't wake a grumpy floof at 1am...) and some sweet sweet furry porn (sorry not sorry). And that's only touching on things, heh. Tuesday came around way too fast and before I knew it I was back home feeling a mixture of relief for being able to nap and get off a stuffy train, and sadness for knowing the con is over until next year comes around. It also seems to be a ritualistic thing where whenever I go on holiday or to a big event I always come back with some level of illness. I know some people say some people experience reactions due to different drinking water, I guess if that's true it sounds like me. Or solely because of the amount of people and the high chances of someone carrying a virus. But ah well, no pain no gain I guess, burned out but so worth it. ^^" Next year is only around the corner and I'm already up for it.
