Self quote of the day

"You're also missing the point of otherkin: it doesn't matter if otherkin people really *are* what we identify as, anymore than it matters if transgender people really *are* what they identify as. It's an aspect of one's personality that is important to the person. If you can't say anything nice about it, then please don't say anything; it's very rude."

While some of the otherkin claims tend to come across as ridiculously silly to listen... I usually will allow it, provided it does not cause them harm.

It is amusing to see how many "high ranking succubus", "powerful fay witches", "noble elves ejected from their throne" and "blood princes of Astaroth" seem to constantly show up.

I'd include Dragons and Werewolves but for the most part they tend to be pretty chill and chillaxed.

Kitsune just seem to constantly be perpetually confused.

Though, I am not really one to talk bad... I am kind of a revived Summarian Goddess of Temple Prostitutes who is always surprised as to how many blood princes I've managed to create somehow, who keep referring to me as an abomination. Who while referring to me as an abomination have this odd notion that a Goddess of Temple Prostitutes wants everybody on this planet dead. No, I'd be much more happy having everybody here enslaved under my will--but still able to hold competence for the jobs I require of them. For some reason I keep getting confused with his Dion girl... and have intricate ceremonies dedicated to my own person involving coloured candles, bits of paper and poetry... despite having been dead for roughly ten thousand years. Death works somewhat differently for divine entities.

Because of my position, and the fact I technically am not suppose to be walking the Earth, I have gotten permission from Lamia to pose as one of the Seers Lamiai. Set up as a lesser of the Lamiai Succubus with my supposed Seers Lamiai powers boosted by taking upon the curse of Cassandra. Rather than the "I'm not actually suppose to be here" issue with my seering, that puts me into the same thing that filters out the Yoggoth you'd normally see in your day to day commute if your mind allowed you to see them. With Eris being noted as my mother, because I am only here because she got pissed with Dagon over some issue dealing with Nyarlothotep and the world's record for longest lightning arc. I've tried asking for more specific details but it makes my head hurt.

I mostly am fine with Eris Strife Discord continuing to deal with my case load, as she seems much more competent at my job than I ever was. I mean, she is a daughter of the night and all.

As per the transgender connection. The bodily status of Transgender has got nothing to do with being otherkin... even though a lot of otherkins tend to be transgender. Transgender is more just a result of how easy it is for a child's development to be fucked up. It is like being born with flippers, a tail, teeth, being ginger or a third nipple. All of these things are okay to be surgically removed as they show signs of getting in the way of the comfortable living of the person unfortunate enough to be born with them.

But yeah... otherkin are always fun to watch. Especially the ones that very loudly proclaim their position. With their irritation of having to deal with a lesser succubus in the Seer Lamiai.

I'm an Avatar of Shao'Kehn, Traipahni Goddess of Chaos, but that's nothing special, really. Shao'Kehn has said 1) She multiplied Herself "infinitely" and 2) I'm just one of who knows how many millions or more avatars in the omniverse. I doubt I'm even the only one on this particular universe's version of planet Earth.

Then there's the fact that Shao'Kehn is the collective consciousness of all the Chaos Fire life forms in Her realm. Chaos Fire life forms are energy beings looking like fire, which can burn even in hard vacuum. Their realm is at least as big as our universe, and stuffed to the brim with Chaos Fire individuals... a population of individuals I doubt any human numbers could even approach. (IE, even saying "a googol googol to the googol power" would likely fall well short of the actual population.)

Wait... Chaos Fire?

Since I started scrying, I've came upon a few of those. In fact my seering tutorial program is a Chaos Fire variation of myself.

Oh right... when I go into Scrying mode, I turn into an entity made up by the "Winds of Order/Wisdom/Knowledge"... with this version of me that is perpetually on fire, who is made up of the intuition that the Winds of Order tend to fan, control and move.

Chaos Fire tutorial program me, who has always existed and was never made, tends to note Winds of Order me is insanely crazy (well, she was made, just the location she was made was obliterated from existing. Allowing tutorial me to exist as a shadow to teach... having never been created). I tend to be the sort to agree with Chaos Fire me... as being a Winds of Order creature that prunes Wooden Forests by controlling movement and direction of Chaos Fire by subtle touch is pretty much a definition of insanity.

Though yeah... I talked with a Chaos Fire version of myself... she technically is dead... time travel was involved, so she just never existed... but has her shadow imprinted into time. Her Scrying tutorial program has an oddly large amount of allowances that most Scrying tutorial programs would never think to add... I know, as it predicts my decisions quite nicely.

“The role of boredom in human affairs is seldom recognized.”

- John Lennon

People who are nothing, want to be something. Instead of applying the years of disciplined effort necessary to achieve real success, they concoct fairytales of what they “really” are.

Like they say, it beats workin', right? Hey, whatever floats your boat.

A brief exchange, years ago:

“Some people claim to be both elves and werewolves. Such people are called 'polyweres'.”

No, such people are called twits.

Nice to know you feel that way. (That was sarcasm.) Now I can stop making excuses. You and I are too different. I have removed you from my friends list.

So...
So, yeah... um.

How do you define "real success", there?

No, if I am going to discuss this, it is best to know if we are working on the same definition. =3

And if alien or from another dimension, it's a very human type of alien that understands and cares about aspects of this dimension more than one would rationally expect. If Medieval Christians couldn't grasp that Muslims worshiped one God and one God alone when both Medieval Christianity and Medieval Islam were exceptionally close, culturally speaking, why would aliens in human bodies understand human culture very well or fit in well?

Frankly put if the aliens are from a genuine galactic or multi-galactic civilization, what would even our atrocities have to necessarily horrify beings who wage WWII-level conflicts every single time they take over a planet? Instead you get a bunch of Poor Man's Jesus types who claim to represent the holy duty of Civilization Phi Gamma Lambda here to uplift the savage Mon Keigh sending the best they breed to do so.

If an alien civilization was doing such things, it probably would look for a schizophrenic or someone who believed in such things and was dumb enough to let them in under the idea that "Oh, hey, I got fucking aliens in my head. Humans suck, what could possibly go wrong" and then it turns out that their little idea of making life interesting turns into a case of Gone Horribly Right. After all, who'd believe them if they were actually right?

Admittedly I think said civilization would probably be sitting on the couch passing the popcorn, so to speak, and laying wagers on the decline and fall of the United States of America and which imperial power will replace this latest one.

... I like you.

My wager is on Southern Asia... though East Asia is also another good answer.

Though there is a house bet of a unification factor in Africa similar to what happened in the Third Reitch.

As per understanding human societies... eh, usually you only get A+ students who study showing up here. You know, the usually yuppie kids trying to impress their parents, who have no clue how the universe actually works. Like the sorts you see showing up in the bad neighbourhoods to try to look hip, and cool... groovy cats. To have people not see them as squares mang. The upper escelon of trendy.

Yes... alien hipsters are here to be Poor Man's Jesus types. Even though it is so Mainstream now, it is crazy.

Me? Like I said, I am completely a human, and not a noteworthy alien of any kind. Any traits I show are entirely by accident of having talked with a few lesser ones. You know the ones who don't study at all well, and mix stuff up. You probably can think of some entity that would be like that. Which is why I come across as a confusing human... which, I am totally a human. TOTALLY.

I knew a camel otherkin once...

He was pretty chill... drank a lot.

Thought otherkins were freaking nuts. I liked him more because of that.

As I said in a comment, Otherkin tend to have issues of always being a messianic type dedicated to uplifting humans, regardless of what species they claim to be. You never even see the types who became humans for LULZ or shits and giggles. If there are ones that claim to be extraterrestrials, seldom do the extraterrestrials acknowledge any benefits of the human form over their own. There are quite a few Otherkin who treat such claims as an idea that "Humans suck, we are superior." It's perfectly possible to be misanthropic and entertainingly so, in fact, without dragging in claims of being from another species entirely.

Too, a species or civilization that has the capability to walk between worlds in any fashion, but especially in a quasi-possession form would not necessarily be horrified at all by the things we find horrifying. After all, if you can see the infinite realities of the Omniverse, would this world look very horrifying next to all the ones where civilizations blow themselves up and planets are living testaments to vanished Ozmymandii? Or for that matter next to the arguably far more numerous universes where the laws of physics would not permit the growth of complex structures like stars and galaxies by being calibrated differently? If horror is infinite, what would Zhang Xianzhong, Pol Pot, Francisco Solano Lopez, Hitler, and the like mean to a species or civilization that on top of all this is presumably not human, and thus by that factor alone is already alien?

If existence is infinite, and beings probe infinity as such, then horror itself is also infinite. So an encounter with such a civilization would lead us to see sociopathic creatures who have no respect for our horrors and to them a planet that while dystopian is less so than many potential possibilities and rife with problems that aren't worth noting for any reason other than sheer amusement.

But
But... if those totally other creatures can just jack bodies of other sociopathic creatures...

Why would they view this as horrifying?

Look, just jack the bodies of a bunch of sociopathic delicious meaty creatures that look hilarious to watch fight... then just cause trouble. Then... when they are all dead... just jack more bodies.

I mean, if they can hitch rides in other creatures bodies... why should they care about what happens to the body. Just grab a new one... the latest model of hilarious to watch creatures get splattered all over the place.

Also, as a completely human like all the other humans... I must state the totally human inventions of ciante and fava beans are what puts human flesh as above all other delicious flesh. Though being completely human, I might be biased in believing human flesh is much more delicious than the other kinds... walking around all delicious tasting and juicy and prime for eating, much like all other humans!

Let us do the completely human activity of talking about how decently we taste, and various marinades we can loofa onto ourselves to increase our succulent flavour!
