Otherkin Identity

  • Kin Name
    Velvet Wings
  • Kintype(s)
    Feline Cladotherian, Argonian, {Daemon}
  • Kintype(s) Description
    Feline cladotherian: My feline shifts tend to be a hybrid mix of various cats. Amur leopard is the most prominent, but tiger, caracal, cougar, domestic cat and homotherium-like features are also commonly present. Being cladotherian all felines make up my identity, however those are the most prominent/common shifts.

    Argonian: A greenish brown argonian, digitigrade legs, webbed hands (and probably feet). On my head are small-medium sized horns and either feathers or spines (still trying to decipher my phantoms).
    I was part of a tribe of healers and spent much of my time gathering plants and herbs to create healing potions/balms. I was also skilled in magic, particularly restoration magics.

    {Daemon: As a daemon I'm sort of like a shifter/polymorph. I most commonly take mammal forms, my favorites being an american marten, flying squirrel, red panda and maned wolf. I'll take on mythical forms too, most commonly a small blue dragon/wyvern and various types of griffin-like creature(usually some sort of canine-bird mix). I usually choose which forms I take, although sometimes I'll shift subconsciously based on mine/V's mood/emotions. Sometimes I don't really have a form and just... exist.
    I believe myself to be a part of V's soul that exists independently, while still being inseparably linked to her.}

    I'm sorry you keep seeming to run into people like that, honestly it just sounds like they're just using you rather than being actual friends. If you ever need someone to talk to you're welcome to message me here or on discord.
  3. Birdy Introductions

    I thought it might be nice to have an introductions thread for people to post about their kintypes and common experiences, so if new members join they can learn a little about us all. So, feel free to post away! I never really talk about my bird experiences so you may be wondering why I joined a bird club. I'm not a bird therian (hopefully I'm still welcome here ;3 ) and don't feel I'm bird-hearted, but a large part of my life and daily experiences are very birdy and relate to a leucistic red kite. It feels like a connection to a specific individual bird that is outside of myself yet deeply connected to my life. I'm still not entirely sure what that connection is although currently I'm leaning towards red kite being my totem. Whatever the reasons red kite has been a constant influence in my life from as far back as I can remember. It's not something I identify as, but it's still a big part of who I am and the reason I included Wings in my name. I experience frequent red kite phantom and mental shifts, as well as some dream (though remembering my dreams is sadly rare these days). It took me a while to pin down red kite, partly because the pale colouration threw me off. I spent a long time searching for pale coloured birds but none seemed to match up. Eventually I forgot the colour and focused on behaviour, anatomy, wing and tail shapes, etc... and found that red kite seemed to match perfectly bar colouration. Later I stumbled across some leucistic red kite photos and that pale, faded colouration matched everything up.

    I'm glad it feels like it's helping, talking about things can be good. Just take your time. :) I was a bit similar after discovering my argonian identity.
  5. Epiphany

    I'm glad you're figuring things out, hopefully you get up the confidence to talk about it more in the future. As for your last post, the site had a database error a few days ago and was restored from a backup, but things posted after the backup had been made were unfortunately lost.

  7. Hm..Argonian...Any chance you happen to mean the reptilian race from the Elder Scrolls series?

      Nice, that's one of my favourite game franchises of all time. And also, Argonians and Nords just so happen to be my favourite races! Also, how do you have so much info on your profile page?

      Oh, ok. Thanks, I was trying to find that.

       

  8. Do you consider nonhuman animals persons?

    I tend to think of person as referring to a human, so no, I don't consider non-human animals to be people. That doesn't mean I think people are superior or that animals don't have thought and feeling. I believe all animals to be individuals with personality and feeling. Some may be mostly instinct based while others may have more complex thoughts, but they're all individuals. I find it interesting regarding your experience of people referring to animals as "it". In my experience it's the norm to refer to animals as he/she or by their names if they're pets. I can only think of one person I used to know who referred to them as "it" and when they did so it tended to provoke negative responses from the people around.

  12. Healing herbs and a random goddess

    Just wanted to make a note of this for future reference. Healing herbs and plants have been on my mind a lot recently. Memories of gathering up plants to use for healing is how I remember spending much of my time as an argonian and I have the urge to do something similar now. I've always loved plants and have a house full of them, but all my indoor plants are for their aesthetics and the ones outside are grown for the wildlife, so it'd be nice to grow some herbs I can use myself. It's something I've had the strong urge to do for a while now and I'm planning to set aside an area of my garden to start growing some herbs. While looking up different types of healing herbs last night I had the random urge to search for gods associated with healing (looking up gods is not something I ever normally do or even think of). I skimmed through various sites and ended up on one with a big list of names. As I read through the list I felt as though I was searching for something, then near the end I found a name that made me pause... Airmed. Something about it just felt right and drew me in. After a moment I kept reading down the list to the end, then went back to the start and began to search for more info on each of the names. I looked up all the others first, thinking reading more about them may bring up something interesting (and I knew if I just skipped down to her name I'd end up never reading about any of the others). It was interesting, but nothing really caught my eye. Then I went back to the name which had made me pause. Airmed. Or Airmid/Airmeith, there seem to be a few different spellings from what I've seen so far. Reading about her was... strange. I found that not only was she known for healing, but for her knowledge and use of healing herbs. I won't go into too much detail about her as I'd just be quoting other sites, but everything I've read so far has seemed to resonate very strongly with me. I tend to be a pretty sceptical person and generally brush things like this off as coincidence. Maybe I'd heard of her in the past and my subconscious linked her with herbs. I don't know. But somehow this feels very important, it feels like it means something. It doesn't feel like a coincidence, it feels like there was some purpose to it all. I'll certainly be thinking on it some more. If anyone knows any good sources of info about Airmed, or if you have any suggestions for things I could grow in my garden please feel free to share. :)
  13. "Artificial" Meat - Would You Eat It?

    I might try it, although as someone who dislikes the taste of most meat it's not something I'd eat regularly. I do like the idea of it, though.
  14. Shiro said on the other thread that the servers are not official kinmunity servers, just servers run by users for users. So having more then one is no issue. :3 It'd probably be good for you to take a look at what sort of things the other server has and use some different mods and such in yours, that way there's more variety. What kind of server is it you're planning?
  15. It's very rare I remember my dreams these days, but I used to. I don't remember ever having dreams which continued on the next night, which is a shame because I'd love to revisit some dreams and see what happened next. I have had recurring dreams (sort of, like dreams which start off the same and have the same things happening but I often make different choices so things sometimes turn out differently), or dreams set in the same place or with similar themes. But they always seem to start off fresh rather than continue from where they left off.
