I don't really have a need to tell anyone unless they are sensitive enough to pick up on anything unearthly about me.

My teacher knows, not like she said anything about it. Just wrote a lot of fictionkin stuff and told about me being fictionkin.

I'm surprised anyone part of the faculty would be invested in that type of info. School just seems too secular to consider that possibility.

My closest friends and my partner know! Telling them went really well - two of my friends even offered to watch my fictionkin source with me. 💖 I certainly didn't expect such an outcome, so I was over the moon with the reactions I got.

There is something more I will add here. That there are times I have explained the fuller details of what reincarnation truly means and implies, that many people have reasonably lived lives as animals and other creatures before this one and or as part of any other life as a human. It astonishes me each time that while so many believe in this principal, they never truly consider the whole of it, yet are evidently very accepting of it if one does not state it outright. Always has it been the case to me that explaining it this way affords them the best sense of understanding without ever attributing any of it to myself.

i actually told somebody just yesterday, but they're the only person who truly knows. they're fictionkin as well, which made it a lot easier to say anything. a few months ago, though, i was questioning being a system, and so i told another friend about that. i haven't told them about being fictionkin, and i don't think i will, just because it's so personal to me.

I told my ex-best friend when we were still friends. It went pretty well. I just told her one day "I'm Otherkin." And she initially thought it was some sort of fandom like being a Furry. Eventually, she learned more when she decided to study Otherkin for a writing assignment in college where she had to learn about a subculture and write a paper about it. A lot of folks in her class understandably chose some part of the LGBTQA+ community, but since she didn't have any friends in that community (well, at the time anyway. I later figured out I'm Asexual, and she's Bi lol) she went for Otherkin since she had a friend who was. I talked an online friend who is also Otherkin into doing a Q&A with her together and you could see on her face a series of emotions and thoughts as she realized what being Otherkin really is. She let me read the paper she wrote and I'd say she got a very good grasp of us and was even quite accepting. (She's an ex-friend not because we had a falling out or anything, our lives simply took us down different paths.)

I've also told my adoptive grandfather in a roundabout way. He accepts Drakmanka as a part of me rather than as me. It's enough though; he often asks me questions about dragons, and Drakmanka's life experiences. He'll also sometimes ask what the dragon perspective on certain events or experiences is. It's nice to be able to talk freely about my dragon life, even if it is cast through a different lens.
