are you a dragon?
@troodon Not Presently. I like being this weird cat-eyed trick dog too much. :3
Circumstances do change though, who can say.
@troodon "Am I that kind of scaley? No. Do I wanna whisk away your town's fair maiden and set some shit on fire? Yes."
^^ my thought process on this one
@guerrillarain toooooootally valid. XD
@troodon I haven't been the dragon in a long time…
@troodon I mean.
I'm not sure.
@Jacel I actually considered including "I don't know" as an option... 💚
@troodon i'm "some guy that'd really really really really really really prefer being a dragon", but making the jump from that to a confidently-stated "dragon stuck in a human's body" self-description has been pretty hard, and i don't really know why i'm so hesitant to?
maybe on some level i have trouble accepting this can be real, that people can be dragons if they want to be. or that some just are. which is pretty rich, considering i was literally spiraling about my disdain for my human body 15 minutes ago, totally a thing that humans _definitely_ do
i put "it's complicated", but... it's not that complicated lmao, hmm can i change my answer 😳👉👈
@quat practice makes perfect? ;)
there've been kerfluffles in the past about "otherkin appropriating trans narratives/vocabulary," but the amount of overlap between trans and otherkin people makes that Venn diagram more of a sloppy oval. and for both of them, the same fact emerges: really *wanting* to be something else--another gender, or another species--is a clear indicator that you truly are trans/otherkin. cis humans may play with the idea of being something else, but they don't get fixated and fascinated with the idea. wanting really *really* hard is a very good indicator that yes, you actually *are*. of course, becoming is a process, which usually takes time, effort, and a *lot* of introspection. but again, it's not something that people do just for the hell of it; it's done out of a deep *need*, and that need is real.
have you read much of Baxil's writing on draconity? http://tomorrowlands.org/draconity/index.html some of that might help, one way or another. but either way, may I follow you? you seem like a nifty person I'd like to hang around with, regardless. :) *nosebump*
@troodon thank you 😌 a few ppl have told me things along those lines, i gotta... drive it into my head a little harder, really internalize it, i guess
- i have not, and i'm leafing through those writings now
- and ok go ahead !
@troodon [α] Um, what if we’re two dragons who are miscible to make one and interleave/disinterleave frequently? Is that one vote or two? >..>
@troodon [α] … or do we count as our component sorta-birds instead? <..<
