“Mongoose: Sentry & Subtlety” (5/1/2021)

“Mongoose: Sentry and Subtlety” (5/1/2021) Outside of my writings regarding figuring out my mongoose theriotype as such, I haven’t really written much about it; for whatever reason, the words just never really came to me to make another writing about being mongoose.  As with my other therio-/’kintypes, I haven’t felt

“About Changes & Growth in the Therian & ‘Kin Communities”

“About Changes & Growth in the Therian & ‘Kin Communities” (12/5/2013) So I think that maybe I at some point should eventually make a writing that sort of ‘revisits’ my “Therian Community: Status Quo & Development” essay and update it with some additional related views, thoughts, and experiences I have

“The Fall of the Therian & Otherkin Communities”

“The Fall of the Therian and Otherkin Communities” (5/5/2021) The idea that just because some or even many people desire within a given community to have a litmus test of sorts to ‘prove’ or officially ‘become’ a *personal* identity (that, of course, can have social identity aspects due to there

“The Plasticity of Otherkin” (6/7/2021)

“The Plasticity of Otherkin” (6/7/ 2021) To clarify, in this writing I’m using “plasticity” to refer to changes that can occur, particularly psychologically, in the experience and/or identity of being otherkin (and related identities).  This does not mean that such changes are by conscious choice (though maybe they can be

“Emerging from the Desert” (4/10/2021)

“Emerging from the Desert” (4/10/2021) For about a decade I have chronically struggled with progressively worsening depression.  I was initially diagnosed with depression in fall of 2009 and was put on Zoloft shortly after which allowed me to feel like myself again and function normally, including having a notable bout

“Deconstructing the Raptor” by Nomad, written 1/9/2011

“Deconstructing the Raptor” by Nomad, written 1/9/2011 My theriotype is Deinonychus antirrhopus, a brand of raptor dinosaurs. Needless to say, it’s not the most common one amongst therians, so I want to share some thoughts on how it feels in the inside, and try to discover which things are similar

“On Extinction” by Nomad, written 10/5/2009

“On Extinction” by Nomad, written 10/5/2009 It’s strange how having an extinct theriotype doesn’t seem to have any effect on the experience of my animality. Whenever I think about how I feel during the times I’m in a “raptorish” mood, or during shifts of any kind, it’s always a living

“Snake Eyes: Living as a Cobra Therian” by SerpentineZebra, written 2/27/2009

“Snake Eyes: Living as a Cobra Therian” by SerpentineZebra, written 2/27/2009 I realize that I am rather lonesome in the therian community, because even though I would say my secondary theriotype is a jaguar – which is not too uncommon – my main one is undoubtedly a cobra of some
