What the title says...are there any vegan otherkin aside from myself? Vegan being VEGAN, aka not eating, using, or wearing animals (including silk and honey) AT ALL. (Vegetarians are cool, but I encourage you to complete the step to helping animals and go vegan!) I'm writing an essay for my otherkin site regarding veganism and would like to know we're out there somewhere.

(Doing more rounds with advertising this thing, apologies if you've seen this before…)

I made my own public chat room (IRC channel), out of my dissatisfaction with many of the others out there, especially those oriented towards mythic types, such as elves, fae, dragons, etc.

It’s called EDMC (Experimental Disposable Mythic Channel). As the name implies, it’s something I’m experimenting with. :)

Details on the chat are on the link below, including a link where you can chat instantly if you don't know how to use IRC:

The meetup for October will be Sunday, October 12, in Menlo Park, CA. The event page is here, but I've recently changed the group settings to be a little more private, so you won't be able to see full information unless you are actually a member of the Meetup group. You can also PM me or email me at arethinn(at)eristic.net for more details.

As the subject line says, just some food for thought... a quote from a post from someone I follow on Tumblr.
What is the relationship between otherkin and roleplaying? Are otherkin just roleplayers?

As an otherkin I'm obviously going to ultimately say 'No'. However, this post will explore the finer details of the connection made between otherkin and roleplaying, in an effort to try and fully explain why otherkin are not all just a bunch of full-time roleplayers.

My brief comment: Of course I agree otherkin (generally) are not "just" roleplaying as elves, dragons, or whatever, despite what outsiders might often accuse us of "obviously" doing. However, I do think there can be value in roleplay as a tool for exploring e.g. a specific past/other life, or what values and/or actions you think express your "other" nature or mind, especially if you're new on the scene (so to speak).

I've learned today that 4chan is targeting a great number of tags on tumblr, including "Otherkin," and doing very nasty things with posts in those tags (I understand, that is their wont, and I suppose their prerogative). I just wanted to bring it up in case anyone here has trigger issues surrounding their Otherkin identity, or other areas of their life. A full text list of the targeted tags can be seen here, in the original post. Thanks for your time.

I'm sorry to announce that the June 8 meetup in Oakland has been cancelled. The July meetup in the south Bay, on Saturday, July 12, is tentative at this time because Celebron and I will be in Canada that day. It may be moved to July 5 or 19, moved in location, or cancelled entirely. Stay tuned.

I am new and I wanted to say hi. I have always thought I was so different and that no one would understand me, however, my husband spent some time researching and found Otherkin. He showed me and thought that maybe this is the community for me.

I remember all my past lives, this is my 7th on/in Earth. My first life was somewhere else. I was a "goddess". I am unsure if that is the proper term but it is what most ancient civilizations would have called me and my family here. I got in trouble and was banished in be a human for 7 lives. I remember everything but names and dates from my past lives. I believe that is part of my punishment.

I am hoping I am not alone, and there are others who have come from other places and are here in one form or another. So I am putting it out there and seeing what I get back. If I am not a good fit for this community, I understand and I would appreciate a point in the right direction.

Thank you for reading.

I'm going to do numbered as it is easier for my mind to separate them that way.

1.) Where is a place to find good resource information on Therians and Otherkin?

2.) Would it be normal to share a love of a particular climate with your Therian personality? ie. Artic Fox loves snow and cold? If not then is it possible to be a particular animal but like a totally different climate than that animal?

3.) Are there any particular guided meditations others have found helpful? I have huge concentration problems, so finding a few is a good thing if possible.

4.) Does a person share personality traits completely with their Therian Personality or can they be totally different?

5.) Why are there so many of one particular type but not of others? I feel very, very wolfish...I have as long as I can remember back, for sure Canid. Is it just more people do internet searches for wolves than some of the other animals that are also awesome that they fail to recognize? Sorry if this came out offensive! It was the best I could word it. My apologies!

and finally..sorry so many...

6.) Are there any instances of health conditions that coexist with therianthropy. For example, I have chronic joint and muscle pain issues,and I have met a few Otherkin who have similar problems to mine. My thinking is that we can sense more energies around us and that if we don't shield and learn to deal with them properly we can actually get sick from them. Might seem weird, just a theory.

Thanks all!!

I wanted to introduce myself. I am Bryn, I grew up and still reside in Oklahoma and live with my best friend and my Cat Ruby. As well as her cat Gabe.

My grammar is not always fantastic, and there are times I invert letters. SO my apologies for that if that happens in any post I make.

A little background about why I am here. my first experience with Otherkin, as far as starting to wonder "who am I" was well over a year ago. I am very much into learning about Angels as well as I believe that I do have Guardian Angels and that Archangels are there for all of us, no matter what manner of the divine we believe in, or if we believe in none at all. Where that began is a long story, but one day a thought popped into my head "I wonder if a person can be an Angel, on the inside?". What would cause me to have such a thought really is not apparent to me because I knew nothing at all about the subject. So naturally I thought, "Well that seems silly". However I did start researching and discovered that yes there are all sorts of things that I can be reincarnated from. I thought I was an Angel, it seemed to fit, but...it's never really fit.

One thing I know for certain is this. I do not feel comfortable as a person, and it extremely hard to explain. Not in the oh I am just shy sense but genuinely not comfortable.

I do have Aspergers, and am on the high functioning end of that, adn I am Bi-Polar but I take very good care of myself as far as that goes, and it's not those things. I did feel they were worth noting though as maybe someone can relate.

I know there are a lot of wolf Therians, so I really keep second guessing myself, but I really do relate to wolves. Their strong sense of friendship and family, their nocturnal nature, the bit of mischief that they have when playing with their pack mates. I've read about, watched etc anything about wolves I could get my hands on since I was about 16. when I look at a picture of a wolf, I don't see blank, staring "animal eyes". I hate when people say that about animal eyes. I see a deep amount of emotion, I am the same with most all animals.

There are other things as well but I don't want to overwhelm with a wordy post. Which I seem to have done anyway. My apologies. So I will conclude by saying, it's lovely to meet you all and thank you for letting me join as I go on my journey.

So...  did we ever hear about why Otherkin Alliance disappeared?  Otherkin.com has bit the dust too.  :/

Hey pplz, I'm trying to keep my aquatic otherkin media page up to date, and need some aid in finding a couple articles. Would anyone happen to know where else I can find 'Mermaid Me', and 'If Only', which were previously on Otherkin Alliance? I tried Wayback Machine, but can't find them (or the site thanks to robots.txt apparently). Their original links were http://main.otherkinalliance.org/articles/personal-accounts/mermaid-me and http://main.otherkinalliance.org/articles/arts-and-literature/if-only/.

And if you want to give any suggestions for media aquatics would like, I'd love to hear them.

Celebron and I were fortunate enough to get a hotel room at the DoubleTree for PantheaCon 2014 in San Jose, CA. This means that the Otherkin meetup that we've had there the past two years will be on again! Exact day and time TBD depending on the workshops and I want to attend, but it looks like we'll be able to do it either Friday afternoon or Saturday evening, or perhaps some time on both depending on how hospitable we feel. If you come, a few dollars donation for food/drink will be appreciated. Details will be updated here.

Anybody know if Otherkin Alliance died? I guess the domain name expired, cuz GoDaddy is telling me I can buy the domain. o_O I was just there a couple days ago and saw no warning about the site going down.

edit: Are there any other previously prominent communities that are dead/dying? I noticed otherkin.com is giving me a "Error establishing a database connection". Otherkin.net just told me the website is unavailable.

http://crossingthethresholds.wordpress.com/

This is the September otherkin gather at Four Quarters Farm, the cousin of Walking the Thresholds (June). This website is intended to replace the old page at http://ctt.oxelot.com, so update your bookmarks/links.

They also have a tumblr: http://crossingthethresholds.tumblr.com

(NB: I am not affiliated with this event, just happened to see this link going round my internet sphere. I've actually never managed to attend CtT for both general logistical reasons and the fact that several years it was scheduled the same weekend as my own MythiCalia.)

I'm working to raise funds for a film project some friends and I are working on. It's inspired in part by otherkin/fictionkin issues so I'd think people here might be interested. Please donate if you can and if you can't, then please share it around and spread the word! http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/book-girl/x/1210328
