Hmm.....I was going to do a reintroduction and just mention this in the sidelines, but nobody seems too interested in reintros, so I'm just gonna post it for info's sake--some of you have probably seen it in other places, but just in case...

Last chance to fill out survey for the book I'm *almost* done with )

So......do we want to reintroduce ourselves, just so we know who we're sharing space with? I wouldn't mind--I've probably changed some since I first join this comm.

How about the rest of y'all?

EDIT: Oops. Forgot to link to the survey. *facepalm*
Feel free to forward this on to wherever is appropriate....

Calling all Otherkin and Otherkin-friendly artists and writers! The Green Wolf (http://www.thegreenwolf.com) would like to announce the conception of an as-of-yet-untitled new magazine designed and written by and for Otherkin. It will be a 52-page periodical that will be published quarterly; the first issue is scheduled for Beltane (May 1), 2006. The first issue will come by way of Cafe Press, but once we have a bit of capital built up we're going to go through an actual printer and offer subscriptions, hopefully with the second issue should the first sell well.

We're looking for articles on all topics concerning Otherkin; this can include any/all of the following, and then some:

* Origins of Otherkin (reincarnation, personal mythology, etc.)
* The History of the Otherkin Community
* Articles specific to certain flavors of 'kin (elves, therians, dragons, vampires, etc.)
* Events in the Otherkin community, both local and regional
* Otherkin and Spirituality
* Otherkin and Magic
* What it's like to be Otherkin
* Got any other ideas?

We're also looking for quality black and white line art for interior illustrations, as well as front and back cover color or black/white illustrations. Tasteful nudity is fine, though we don't need an entire issue of skyclad female faeries (as much fun as that could be in and of itself!)

Originality and good writing/artistic skills are key; we'll be able to help some on the writing with editing, but the more effort on your part means the greater likelihood we'll accept your work.

Due to this being a startup, we will not be able to offer any compensation other than "Hey, guess what? You're in print!" Apologies to anyone writing solely for the money--we hope to change this someday once the magazine's paying for itself.

Deadlines for the Beltane issue are March 1. Please send articles in Word format and images in .jpg or .gif format to whishthound@gmail.com . If you have any questions or would like to propose an idea before you actually follow through with it, feel free to drop us a line.

A little bit o' self-pimpage....in other words, an Otherkin article accepted to Witchvox this week:

http://www.witchvox.com/va/dt_va.html?a=uspa&c=words&id=10338
I've been combing the internet for *any* books specifically on Otherkin. Not history, or mythology, or folklore, but incarnated 'kin in specific. Here's what I've gotten so far:

The Magic of Shapeshifting - Rosalyn Greene
The Psychic Vampire Codex - Michelle Belanger
Earth Angels: A Pocket Guide for Incarnated Angels, Elementals, Starpeople, Walk-Ins, and Wizards - Doreen Virtue
Dhampir: Child of the Blood - V.M. Johnson
Magical Elven Love Letters - The Silver Elves

So am I missing anthing that y'all may know about? I know the Silver Elves have another book out, but I want to read this one first.

I've been paging through the ones I haven't actually read cover-to-cover. So far they seem to range from fairly decent to awful tripe. For instance, the Earth Angels one is REALLY gods-damned New Agey, but lo and behold she does make some interesting points, even if they're couched in a different set of terms.

I'm mainly versed in therianthropy.....anyone got anything to say about any of these books so I can gauge a little better which ones will be good source material to work from?

Thanks :)
Anyone read the Otherkin section of Willow Polson's "The Veil's Edge"? If so, what did you think?
Does anyone know much about "The Psychic Vampire Codex" by Michelle Belanger? As in, is it a decent resource or it is utter drek?

Also, anyone have any other recommendations of books that I can use for research for my Otherkin book? Only one I've got is "The Magic of Shapeshifting" by Rosalyn Greene, and it's a questionable resource on therians.

Thanks in advance :)
I need help with a little project of mine......rather than post everything here, I just made a public post to my LJ:

http://www.livejournal.com/users/lupabitch/492539.html

Thanks in advance :)

Love,

Lupa
There's a new group for Pittsburgh-area Kin, created as a reaction to Meetup.com imposing fees.

Name: Ciarra
Age: 24
Country: US
Subscription/Access Policy: Friend away! I'm always looking for new friends to talk to. As for access, I grant almost everyone that subscribes to me. If I ever lock something it'll be something really personal and might be trigger-y. I will always warn if I do post something of that nature. There's no pressure to grant me access back.

Fannish Interests: Gosh, okay, I like a lot of things. But I also need to catch up on a lot of things. That's my problem.

I watch a lot of tv. Right now I'm watching shadowhunters and deciding if I want to catch up on Teen Wolf or not. My love for Scott McCall is enternal though. 

I really enjoy pokemon,  digimon,  yugioh,  sailor moon, power rangers, tf&f series, harry potter, kingdom hearts, and classic spn. all of those were my fandoms before I ever knew what fandom meant. i am casually into new doctor who but Ten was my first doctor and my favorite era. I'm always there for the companions the most though and I love bill potts so much. i love sherlock holmes adaptations but i gotta say my favorite is elementary. i'm also into low energy video games so pretty much anything nintendo and the sims. I'm a little obsessed with the sims and the fandom it has on youtube. just a little. Superheroes are cool too! I like the mcu and dcu but i haven't watched all of it yet bc reasons. Omg star wars is a big one lately too. and the new Star Trek and hopefully the new series!! as for cartoons steven universe is like the best thing that ever happened to me probably. aaaand books!! gosh do i hope to actually start to read books. The last full thing I read that wasn't fanfiction was the hunger games.

sp in summary i love anything cheesy, ridiculous, and about friendship :D 

I Like To Post About: honestly? cute animals. cats especially. no but i'll post about all the things i care about and I might to do reaction posts to show or movie etc. I hope to at least post fic or a rec or just journaling in general! I'm trying to find my place in dreamwidth after being on tumblr for so long now. 

About Me/Other Info: I'm an ace nonbinary (she/they pronouns) lesbian. I'm autistic, mentally ill, and have chronic pain & illness. I'm infp, capricorn, and a hufflepuff. 

hurt/comfort is my whole life. It's like my one true kink. I love reading it, writing it, having discussions about it, reading meta about, you get it. It's my jam. 

I'll mostly comment on stuff for a while probably. I have a strict rule that is if I see an entry/read a fic/etc I comment on it. <3

More Dreamwidth Friends?

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm fairly new here, but not new to fandom. I write fanfiction and I fandom-hop without rhyme or reason. I'm currently in a lot of small fandoms, and I love to add more, so feel free to try to get me obsessed with your favorite fandom. IRL, I'm a sleep scientist who doesn't sleep enough. I talk about my girlfriend a lot.

Top 5 Fandoms: 
I'm going to cheat, but in my defense, I am in so many fandoms...
Small video game fandoms (Oxenfree, Stardew Valley, and Primordia)
Boku No Hero Academia
The Goblin Emperor
Harry Potter (always... never hop away from this one)
Haikyuu!!


I mostly post about: Fanfiction, logic puzzles, fandom things. I'll probably start posting about my life at some point, but those won't be public

I rarely post about: politics, specifics about my work.

My last three posts were about: A logic puzzle and some fanfiction exchange/challenge stuff.

How often do you post?: Not much right now - I'm new here. But I imagine I'll be posting at least once every week, if not more.

How about commenting?: I'm good about commenting when I'm feeling social, but sometimes I don't have the energy. I like making friends and being friendly though, so I try.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Aquarius, INFP, dog person, never completely outgrew my goth phase but sometimes wear pink. I write fanfics, mostly for exchanges. I like monsters and space. In the real, basic, practical, flesh-and-blood, real-world I am: female (she/her), Christian, bisexual, socialist-leaning, a teacher, and from the southern United States. I do not do well with excessive sunlight, pineapple, disparaging remarks about religion (any, including my own), or people trying to make others feel bad about things that make them happy.

Top 5 Fandoms:

- Doctor Who
- Avatar: The Last Airbender
- Like three anime in one interconnected pile (Steins;Gate, Puella Magi Madoka Magic & Fate)
- MCU
- ??? Carmilla? It really depends on the day. I love Wonder Woman right now.


I mostly post about: ... Dear Author Letters. So far. 95% of what I do on the internet is fandom-related. I hope to keep talking about fandom in a responsive, more connected community than tumblr has provided in years. I hope to rewatch some fandoms I've lost touch with soon, though I will be starting work in a few weeks. Fandom with a dash of my daily personal monologue.

I rarely post about: Political or religious stuff outside a positive context.

My last three posts were about: I'm writing a fandom autobiography to get in the habit of posting on my dreamwidth.

How often do you post?: It's hard to say since I'm new to this. Most days this week. If you want to check out how I sort of blog you can check my tumblr's blogging tag.

How about commenting?: I believe in commenting with my whole heart. I really want to establish some friendships and conversationships here. When it comes to fic, I won't promise I'll read everything, but if I read it, I will always comment.

A GIF to describe how your day has been so far: Really uneventful day, so here's a gif that shows my overall personality. (I overidentify with Carmilla oops.)

Generally most of the books by Joy Fielding and Mary Higgins Clark.

Music: I love music and I listen to almost every genre. Classical, rock, metal, ambient, alternative, music of all eras (especially 80s/90s. Those funny disco songs always crack me up lol), blues, even country, German Schlager, eurodance. I know no shame when it comes to music.

Other Info: I was sorted into Slytherin. The hat let me decide between that and Hufflepuff, so I told him that I liked green better. :D I'm an ISFJ. I love nature and animals. Long walks in the nature make me feel all happy and content. I could watch grazing horses or cows forever. I have four cats and wish I had a dog again. I have a sweet tooth. I love bodyweight excercises. I like to laugh until I cry and my belly starts to hurt.

My journal is 90% fannish stuff. You've probably noticed that I'm a slash fan. I also have a couple of incestuous ships. Just saying in case you didn't know and react shocked. I don't hate on ships.

I'm looking for other like-minded (fannish) people with whom I can squee and, if the occasion arises, have insightful discussions with. LJ was my main residence since 2006. But with the rescent ToS fiasco I don't feel at home there anymore. So I've decided to move into my DW and make myself comfy here. All that is missing is you. So, let's be friends! :)

I love reaction gifs, so I wrap this up with one, just because.

Gender: Genderqueer (ze/they preferred, but on the off chance we meet in rl I won't be offended by she.)
Languages: English, Gaidhlig, German, French, (a teeny tiny bit of Hungarian)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a geek of the excessive book reading/movie watching/fanfiction writing kind. I'm particularly fond of science-fiction but I'm highly suggestible towards other areas of potential fannish glee. I'm learning a minority language. I consider people to be beautiful regardless of gender and believe everything to be better with penguins. Also a purveyor of sarcasm...

Top 5 Fandoms:
Currently?
Leverage
Ghostbusters
Rivers of London
Wolf 359
MCU

I mostly post about: Books, movies, podcasts, music and random stuff happening in my life. Fic and meta as the muse takes me. I also enjoy photography and fibrearts so that too.

I rarely post about: work, politics, anything that might identify me in meatspace.

My last three posts were about: Music mostly, I'm doing a daily music meme this month, other than that, my weekly reading post and a to-do list!

How often do you post?: At least weekly but sometimes more than that, depends how busy/stressed I am in RL.

How about commenting?: If I have something to say and the energy to say it I'll comment. I read daily but sometimes I don't have the spoons for interacting.

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away I used to blog on a Livejournal that is no doubt long since deleted and purged. I can't even remember the name of it. Randomly this morning I started having fits of nostalgia, came online and discovered Dreamwidth. And here I am!

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a Sagittarius born in the year of the dog, an ESTJ, a Ravenclaw and a geek. I studied Psychology but have never put it to use and instead I work in a bank. I love alternative music and grunge, my music tastes are still in the late 90s/early 2000s. I love science fiction and superheroes, Star Trek and Star Wars both, DC and MCU both (but only the shows/movies, I'm not a comic book reader). Some of my other favourite things include steampunk, carousels, zoos & safari parks, ripped jeans, pretty dresses, staying up all night, ghost stories, fairy tales, drinking tea, singing badly and collecting cushions and blankets

Top 5 Fandoms: Stargate
Doctor Who
DC shows/movies
MCU shows/movies
Harry Potter

It's been a good decade since I've participated in fandom and I'm hoping to get back into writing fanfiction

I mostly post about: Anything and everything that goes through my head

I rarely post about: I would say it's unlikely you will find hatred, bigotry, politics, war, religion... that kind of thing

My last three posts were about: My need for quiet/stillness, starting to learn German and how I don't understand selfie culture

How often do you post?: so far, daily

How about commenting?: If I have something to say, I will. I like making and getting comments
