    I was raised UCC Protestant but I've come to call myself an eclectic Wiccan that draws from animism, totemism, Druidry and Wicca all mixed together. I don't follow a specific pantheon, but have found that reaching out to individual deities has worked best for me.

Otherkin Identity

  • Kin Name
  • Kintype(s)
    Wolf (coastal), Aquatic Fae (mermaid)
  • Kintype(s) Description
    I identify as a hybrid: a cross between a wolf (Canis lupus ligoni) and an aquatic fae/mermaid. I experience phantom limbs and depending on the situation, am more wolf minded or more aquatic minded. I have noticed a pattern of me being more wolfy during the autumn/winter months and more ocean creature during the spring/summer months. I use the term 'hybrid' because I am both at the same time, as strange as that sounds. However, I experience each creature an a unique entity as well. For example, when I'm feeling more in a wolf mindset, a mild mental shift as I call it, the urge to chase prey and the drive to act wolf-like does not have any effect on me being drawn to the sea. The two are distinct, yet both make up my personal identity as a seawolf. If you have specific questions, I am more than happy to try explaining my beliefs more in depth via PM.

  1. Big Projects that You're Trying to Tackle?

    NaNoWriMo With a vacation, work, a trip to PAX Unplugged this weekend, Thanksgiving...not sure why I'm trying...
  2. Follow your nose!

    Very highly! :D I've gotten all sorts of scents from them from Loup Garou (dark pine forest) to Bliss (milk chocolate) to Smokestack (coal and creosote) to The Rose (from Beauty & the Beast)
  3. Follow your nose!

    @Zicoxite have you heard of Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs (BPAL)? They do scented oils and many are strange, reminiscent of things found in nature (like sulfur or the ocean) or based on fandoms. :)
  4. Last movie you watched?

    I disagree; I saw it last weekend and thought it was absolutely awful! Tried too hard to be like the first one and missed the mark with everything; what a waste! Last movie I watched: Beetlejuice.
  5. Follow your nose!

    Scents I absolutely adore: the fresh smell of ozone over a salty sea and a pine forest with freshly turned damp earth, particularly if it's just rained hard. Also, dead leaves at the end of autumn and the smell in the air before a good strong thunderstorm. Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs (BPAL) does scented oils and many are strange or based on fandoms. For my wolf aspect, the late smells of autumn: dead leaves, that crispness in the air, darkness falling earlier, etc. Also pine forests and freshly turned, dark earth (BPAL: Loup Garou). For my aquatic aspect: the salty brine of the ocean or the ozone of thunderstorms. Also the smell of water, but especially salt water. (BPAL: Pool of Tears) Also, the smell of a crisp night. Scents I cannot stand: green cooking vegetables, cleaning products and commercial perfumes/colognes. If I can smell you more than 20 feet away, you're wearing too much of it!
  6. Any of you guys have pets?

    A few weeks ago, my husband stopped when a stray kitten ran in front of the car on his way to pick me up from work. He called me and I quickly arrived and we spent the next hour or so trying to coax her down from inside a parked car's engine block. (I'm little and I barely fit under this small SUV!) I eventually grabbed her and we called the vet. They were closed, so we brought her home after stopping for provisions at Petco. In the car on the way home she just kept purring and leaning against me. When we got home, we gave her a bath with kitten shampoo and then fed her some kitten food. I took her to the vet who said she's healthy. Since then, she's been staying in our basement to avoid our older cat. But now we have a new kitten named Rosie! :D
  7. Tattoo!

    Actually, it's more the fact that your hands and feet (particularly the soles and palms) are simply worn down more from normal wear and tear so getting tattoos there will mean they fade much faster. Some tattoo artists won't do them there for that reason.
  8. The Dresden Files

    Also, Murphy is one of my all-time favorite female characters: she's badass and intelligent and has a sense of honor and respect!
  9. The Dresden Files

    YES!!! While I have a beef with the author right now (Seriously? No updates on when book #16 is coming out in over 3 years?!?!) the series itself is excellent. However, Harry's not nonchalant about being a wizard, he freely advertises his services in Chicago for wizardry. And he's got a mouth and attitude problem to boot, which gets him in heaps of trouble with the local crime boss, the Sidhe, demons, angels, werewolves, vampires, zombies...pretty much everyone... If you're new to the series, there's plenty to read. But the later books are darker and tend to have cliff hanger endings. Also, the TV show wasn't bad, per se, it just wasn't as good as the books and had enough differences as to be annoying. Watch the show, if only to have something to compare to the books after you read them. The characters are relateable, the plots are exciting and interesting and the series overall is very enjoyable. Go start it now!!!
  10. Tattoo!

    I also have a 'kin related tattoo: a howling wolf silhouette with a night scene inside it on my right ankle.
  11. Last movie you watched?

    Just watched it and I mostly agree. The CG and all the varied alien species were awesome. The plot (a redux of much better movies), acting and casting...terrible!
  12. Last movie you watched?

    The Wedding Ringer Good ol' buddy comedy with Kevin Hart and Josh Gad: I was surprised at the decent plot and the fact that it wasn't all gross or sex jokes.
  13. Favorite animals

    Wolves Dolphins Orcas Otters Snow Leopards Domestic House Cats
  14. A few suggestions

    As someone who fits the definition of suntherian/vacillant therian, I have to disagree that including it as an option in profiles is a good idea. Most 'kin don't even know what the definition is, let alone the fact that there's two identical terms for it. It's confusing and I don't think we need more of that in our community. If someone wants to list suntherian/vacillant therian, they can do it in their 'kin type description. Or maybe simply include an 'other' option for shifting experiences?
