Otherkin Plurality: Systems, Soulbonds, Fictives and Thoughtforms
As written by Lexidius “BlackStatic” Storm, October 2020
Plurality: An Overview
Plurality – also known as multiplicity – is when a person may experience altered states of consciousness that are distinctly different from each other, as though the individual has several separate identities. Individuals who experience plurality, usually referred to as “plurals”, may feel as though they are sharing their head with several other alters, or “headmates”, each of which has their own personality with separate likes, dislikes and personal interests. If these identities choose not to integrate into a singular person or “singlet”, they will often learn to co-exist as a “system” with designated roles that each identity takes (eg. “protector” and “original”), though not all systems choose to take up these roles. In some instances of plurality, these systems are less like fully separate individuals...

So I just learned today what has been named as "glitch feminism" by a publication called "the daily dot".
Smash all the extraneous words they use to define it, together and it all boils down to "people on the internet identifying as anything they want, because the internet isnt real."
This is perfectly reasonable and valid. It's the internet. People can be whatever they want to be.
The issue I saw was it being combined in with "trans" and the LGBT community. On the surface sure, it can look like "oh trans people can be whatever they want to be, like people on the internet. Like...
“Fictionkin”. I had scoffed at the word and its very implications. The concept of fictionkin has always seemed more than far-fetched. How could anyone possibly be a fictional character? How is it even remotely credible to claim to be someone from a piece of media that wasn’t even in existence until you were well into your twenties? It seems downright delusional, or even more, “wishful thinking”. Perhaps fictionkin all simply relate to the canon they are from, or the character or species they identify as.
I used to believe all this. I was a staunch advocate for otherkin and therians, but laughed at fictionkin. My mind automatically repelled any remote questions regarding the subject. Nothing could convince me that I was fictionkin, and I would never have believed that in the future I would identify as...
Awakening As Fictionkin After Awakening As Otherkin By AlmostAmalthea
I enjoyed reading The 13 1/2 lives of Captain Bluebear by Walter Moers. I took my time to read this fat book, because the world of Zamonia described in this book looks very close to my home world as I percive it.
Let’s look at the details :
My Home, is composed of a large forest bordered to the east and west by mountains, with a vast desert plain in the south, and a beach and sea to the north. The forest is full of rivers, and in the mountains, there are deep caverns. In Zamonia, there is the Great Forest, with mountains to the east and the west, caves in the western mountains, a desert to the south, and the sea to the north.
In my home world, among the most important creatures, is the Shadow, an...
Accepting Being Fictionkin By AlmostAmalthea
I’ve thought a lot about myself, and about the fact that I feel like a qilin from Zamonia, in the books by Walter Moers. I have felt this way since my early childhood, although I’ve only recently learned the term “fictionkin”. I thought I was crazy, that I was suffering from personality disorders, but the more I tried NOT to be a qilin, the worse it became.
After several attempts to “correct” my identity in order to “feel human”, I made the decision – which was very difficult – to embrace this qilin identity, if only as a fursona character in my mind. I need this identity as a qilin, and would use any explanation as long as it worked. As long as it does not stop me from functioning normally in the human world, I don’t see a problem.
I talked to my therapist. I had been...
Oz: The Way I Knew It By Elphaba Thropp
My name is Elphaba Thropp, or at least that is what the books will claim is my name. My father was not the Eminent Thropp, as Wicked will tell you it was. My Father was actually Oz himself, the very ruler of it. The name I was actually given by my father, as my mother had passed with my birth, was Ozma Elphaba of Oz. Oz was a busy man, inventing things and taking care of the land he had loved. Given Oz’s important duties and little time, I was often left in the care of my nanny, whom I considered to be an aunt to me and whom I believe was actually Oz’s sister. She was an older woman, who was also very kind to me and helped me with my abilities. She had a small cottage at the end of town where I would stay with her. The reason for it being close to town was so my father could see me when...
Zrcalo commissioned me to move the old forums over to Xenforo 2. Sadly, the archives only seem to go up to about mid-2017 so the more recent stuff is gone. Tens of thousands of posts and all the user accounts and DMs were saved, though!
This forum is being set up with a dedicated blog section as well as a wiki for the glossary type terms that were seen on the original Fictionkin blog.
I am still working on getting everything set up. I will post again when the setup is done.
