  1. @ArchieAce I don't actually do commissions atm. I'm too flaky for that kind of responsibility! I prefer to just do art for fun anyway... the pressure of working for money makes it too stressful for me. I offer free stuff pretty often, though (well, uh, "often" by my standards, which is... not really that often because I'm such a slow worker, aha). Slots will probably open again at some point, but I'm not sure when!
  2. Walking along, minding my own business, when I notice this thing staring at me from a shop window. Nice.
  3. @Curious Canine Sorry friend, slots are full at the moment! I'm a slow worker, aha. But once I'm done this round of art I'll probably open slots up again! ^^ @Jahfari Aaa finally got this done! Sorry for the wait! Turns out wolf colours are way harder than I thought, aha. I hope you like~
  4. The idea of "confirming" kintypes is so strange to me. How would one "confirm" a kintype? Hell, I've identified as a wolf for literal years and it's an integral part of myself, but that doesn't stop me sometimes wondering if I reallyΒ amΒ a wolf (the doubts don't last long, but... with no objective way to know for sure, it seems natural to occasionally stop and wonder if I am what I think I am). I wouldn't say I'd "confirmed" any of my kintypes, because that implies that I've found some way to objectively verify them, right? And I haven't.

    What does "confirming" even mean in this context? How would one "confirm" their non-physical identity? (Rhetorical question, but. At the same time I'd be interested to know how people who have "confirmed" a kintype actually went about that).

      In my case it means confirming what category my feelings fall into. I know what I'm feeling, but I get a lot of things at once. Knowing what to call it and feeling it are two different things to me.

      Maybe that makes me a lesser category of "kin" for not automatically being certain but so be it, it's how I figure things out.

      Oh, wait, I misunderstood a bit. Yeah, I'm never absolutely certain. I just use the word "confirm" to say "this is what I think it is for now."

    3. Charias

      I think it's the certainty of saying something is "confirmed" that doesn't agree with me. I'm not saying you shouldn't be sure of a kintype, just... saying it's "confirmed" is semantically weird to me, y'know? But eh.

    4. Amber

      Hm.. isn't there a difference between "confirmation" and "proof"? If I remember my physics classes correctly, there're many physical theories which are confirmed by observations, but not finally proven. Take e.g. the existence of dark matter or the human-made climate change.

  5. Hmm, I was curious so went to look into it, and it seems like the "zombie deer" thing is being way overblown by the media. Of course. I mean, obviously take precautions (basically don't eat a sick deer and don't touch them, but I think that's common sense, aha). While it is heartbreaking to see, it doesn't seem to be something to worry about. And with such a high population the species will certainly survive it. All the talk about it possibly spreading to humans sounds like fear-mongering to me. What really scares me is rabies. Nightmare disease. I'm glad it's extinct here.
  6. Yeah, when there's pressure on a certain area or if I move my wrist in a certain way. I've looked really carefully and can't see anything though. Oh well.
  7. My wrist has been hurting all day for no apparent reason and it's so annoying. Like there's a little splinter there, but I can't see anything... ugh.
  8. All I'm going to say is it seems very wrong to laugh at a girl who, if what has been said is true, is seriously mentally ill. Mental illness is not funny. It's a serious issue and should be treated seriously, even in casual discussion. I wouldn't laugh at someone for having cancer, and I won't laugh at this poor girl for whatever she is going through in her head. Shame on all of you who do so. Have a bit of empathy. Mental illness isn't a choice, and anyone who acts in an unhealthy manner because of it is a victim of their illness. They don't deserve mockery.
  9. I'd be interested to how many began identifying as non-human before finding out about therianthropy/otherkinity - maybe phrased as something like "Did you consciously identify as non-human prior to finding the otherkin community?" or something along those lines. Also maybe something like "Did you experience shifts before discovering otherkin?" with multiple choice answers of things like "Yes, mental shifts", "Yes, phantom shifts", "No, but I did after", "No, I don't shift", etc. to specify exactly what their experiences are with that. And maybe "Did you associate yourself with your kintype's species before awakening?" (this could probably be worded better but basically asking if they always had a connection to the species that is their kintype). Oh, also: "Have you ever misidentified your kintype/s?" with answers "No", "Yes, once", "Yes, many times", and "Unsure" I'll post again if I have any more ideas! (Hmm... it'd be cool if you could let us know what questions are already going to be included. I assume there's gonna be the typical stuff like "Are you otherkin, therian, both or neither?" and that sorta thing)

    PSA: Therian Guide

    My TG account is gonna go down in flames but if I can take that bastard with me I'll burn happy. Or hell, even just... let people know so they can bail. I'd be happy just with that. But that depends how quick my shit's deleted.

    PSA: Therian Guide

    That... goes a long way towards explaining why that site gives me such bad vibes. Especially that guy in particular. What the fuck. Now I'm torn between deleting my account, and going back on there trying to tell people about the exact kind of bastard their beloved admin is. Hell, maybe I'll do both. Yeah, screw it, I'm doing both.
  12. Hmm... for me it's like, hard to explain? Especially between my wolf and leopard theriotypes, because I'm constantly mentally both of them to some degree (which is why it took me so long to distinguish the leopard parts from the wolf parts - it all mushes together in my head). I'll get feelings and instincts from both species, but the basic feeling associated with them is the same; there's no clearly "wolf instincts" or "leopard instincts", but I can figure out where a particular instinct is coming from with a little logic. Wanting to run with a pack is clearly a wolf thing, while wanting to stalk and ambush is more of a leopard thing. Wanting to hiss at cats I see around is certainly a leopard thing, whereas my wolf instincts are either "ignore the cat" or "oh look it's a weird puppy, new friend!" depending on my mood. I don't get astral shifts, I don't think, but my phantom shifts have a similar level of fluidity and "mushiness" to my mental ones - I always have wolf ears, but I might use those ears in a feline way sometimes. Or I might have wolf ears and a leopard tail. Or a wolf face but leopard paws. It doesn't feel weird to me. Both theriotypes are equally me, and I'm one person, so my theriotypes are both the same me... just. In different ways, I suppose? It's hard to explain. It's funny, I remember when I only knew about my wolf theriotype and didn't understand how anyone could be more than one thing! Welp, turns out the answer, for me, is that I'm not "more than one thing". I'm just three completely different things mushed and tangled together, with no clear division between them.
