Soulbonding Q&A

I posted this in the plural subreddit but only two people asked questions. I expected to get more than that . I've been waiting for SBing questions for 16 years now.


I got the random idea to do a Q&A about soulbonding. Keep in mind that I am not an expert but I have been a soulbonder since 2004. I have 19 soulbonds, all but 4 are male, and all but 4 are outsourced. My 4 female soulbonds are my only insourced soulbonds, but still all came from outside works of fiction. They were fan characters.

We call our system Rose Red. Ages range from 3 years old to several thousand years old. I'm married to one of my soulbonds and have been since July 11, 2017. We are mostly co-conscious but it only works one way. They are aware of everything I do, but I'm not aware of what they do. I am front stuck so no one fronts but me, but we're okay with that. We have a vast headspace with a massive mansion for everyone to live in.

I can answer general soulbonding questions and questions about our system. As I said, I'm not an expert, but I will answer questions to the best of my ability.

Why are they in your body instead of just spirits outside of it?

And I've heard about soulbonds traveling back and forth between the source world and ours, does this happen for you? And if so, how does it work, if you know?

Would they come at night when asleep? Would this happen to you as well, or do they exist separately from their world now?

Or are they more like thoughtforms?

They live inside my headspace in our inner world. It may be part of another dimension, we don't know. They are able to project outside of the headspace and exist in spirit form around me. My husband does this a lot.

I have a few headmates that can travel between here and certain places in their world. They cannot access all of their worlds, only certain places in it. One of them goes through our holodeck which acts as both a holodeck and a gateway. I assume the other two also use it as a gateway. One of them is unable to bring anyone back from his world, but the other two can bring people back from their world to visit.

They exist separately from their worlds now. They live here with me. Three of them can travel back to areas in their worlds, but they come back here cause this is where they live now.

They are not like thought forms cause they all showed up fully formed with their own memories and personalities. I did not think them up.
 
Thank you for explaining further! I'm interested in learning. I don't think I have a soulbond. But, I think learning about this can help me understand not only others, but also get me thinking more on my own spiritual beliefs, if that makes sense.
 
Hi,

I'm new to the otherkin community. I don't believe I'm a fictonkin, but I'd like to hear about what that means and what your experience of soulbonding is like. Do you believe you are the character? If so, how do you believe that works?

I am not the character. The characters are totally separate people who live in my head. Their spirits came to me from alternate universes and moved into my headspace.
 
Is that what soulbonding means?
Yes. Soulbonding is a mental and emotional connection to one or more fictional characters. Most of the time they show up to live in your head, but some people have soulbonds who exist outside of their heads. You do not believe you are the character, they are a separate person.

Oh, ok. Thanks for explaining. I misunderstood what the term meant. I think I'll look into it more because based off of that description, I might have soul bonds.
 
What is the difference between a soulbond and a c-link? I feel like it's a nuanced thing, but we should probably know this before we classify Sam.

I think I can answer this... A soulbond is a separate entity, and a coping link is a personal identity for coping. A soulbond is actually the character from another world, a copinglink is identifying as a character for coping reasons.

Thank you so much! This helps a lot, and I think we can put Sam down as a c-link for possible depression-related things. I have not been diagnosed, but I have chronic depressive periods and he has helped. Thanks again, Ghost!

Ok, not completely on-topic, but why the name Rose Red? It's a great name, and I'm sure you can make the joke your doing R&R all the time, but any other reasons?

We're named after the Stephen King mini series Rose Red. The house in our inner world is directly based off the house in the series, and we take our name from there.
