  1. Who-is-Page

    Otherkin FAQ

    Short answer: No. Long answer: Definitely not. It’s impossible to diagnose an entire, extremely diverse community with a single overarching disorder or disorder symptom, first of all.

    On the Dearth of Otherkin Writings

    The decline of personal writings within the otherkin community is a phenomena spoken of often by older members of the community: gone are the days where most otherkin had a personal website and preferred forum of which to lurk, posting thoughts, anecdotes, and guides based on their own...

    On "Astral Limbs" and "Phantom Limbs"

    Note: This article was originally written by former Kinmunity member "Ashenfall". In my time in the community I have seen many common misconceptions younger and newer members have fallen into through confusion and uncertainty. I could perhaps write a huge article on so many of these, but I've...

    A guide to shifts

    Note: This article was originally written by former Kinmunity member "Ashenfall". Shifting is an integral part of being otherkin/fictionkin to a large portion of the communities. Though certainly not essential to consider oneself otherkin or fictionkin, you’d be hard pressed to find a place...
