    When discovering your kin type, did you consider any more common possibilities first? I would imagine that for many, especially those who learn about otherkin without knowing anything about their kin type, it tool a whIle to settle on something unusual.

    I went through a number of possibilities before reaching the conclusion I'm satisfied with, but none of them were normal animals. Mostly it was mythical creatures. I don't know, maybe it was a coincidence, or maybe I just knew that much.

    Not quite. I considered myself an android long before I considered myself otherkin, I'll admit. I've had the non-organic feeling for quite a while now.

    Though I did consider the possibility of a dragon kintype, before settling and realizing I am more dragon-hearted than dragonkin.

    Haha, well...

    First I thought I was a black dog.
    Then I figured I was a dragon.
    Then I thought I was fictionkin with an unnamed Skyrim dragon.
    Then that evolved into some semi-corporeal dragon spirit or something.
    Then I dropped that whole thing because it didn't feel right.
    Then I identified as minor deity for a while.
    Then stopped because I felt uncomfortable with that.
    Then I started identifying as a demonic entity.
    Then I identified as a demonic shapeshifter for a while.
    Then I identified as a daedra for a bit, but it didn't feel right.
    Then I did some research, thought I might be a djinn.
    Then I decided I probably wasn't.
    Then I tried on a couple of other similar identities.
    Then decided none of those were right either.
    Then I finally realised I'm an energy being.
    Then I figured out I'm a polymorph.
    Then I just kind of gave up.

    Now I'm just confused. Help.

    I know how you feel, believe me. I didn't go through quite so many steps, but I've gathered a lot of possibilities and spent a lot of time thinking my kin type was something far from what it actually is.
