Thought I’d address the ‘kin boom’ thing quickly lol.
It’s not an official term, not a serious one, and certainly not one y’all need to use. I literally only made it up because it sounds funny and is quicker to say than ‘influxes of similar kintypes due to cameo shifting and/or triggered obsessions” d: I even have a Na’vi word I made up for it because I’m that weird.
It also sounds like ‘kaboom’ if you say it fast, because it’s an ‘explosion’ of new otherkin. Get it? I’m a joke master.
But yeah, I know people in the past have gotten rather twitchy when I use words that aren’t used by the community, so here’s me saying it’s not official - I just needed something to call the things that happened to my two kintypes over the past few years lmao. Feel free to use it ofc, just don’t tell everyone it’s official because it could come back to me, and as you all know, I cannot handle negativity because I’m a weakling.
EDIT: what about kinflux? ‘kin + influx? Anyone? I’ll see myself out
EDIT II: I didn’t give a definition. Soz
I call the following scenario a kin boom: an short space of time (days to weeks) in which a large number of people falsely confirm or question a new kintype based on cameo shifts caused by a shared scenario (ie. whale shifts during summer swims) or by a new joint fascination/cameo shift experience (ie. the three Avatar kin booms). Every single person who is a part of the kin boom eventually will realise it was a cameo. Anybody who doesn’t isn’t called a kin boomer since they actually discovered who they are.

Kaltxì! Uni is keeping me busy so I don’t post as often as I like, lol.
Thought I would share thoughts about Dren, with this a beginning post about physical body.
Comparing Dren with my kintypes!
👽 Head (spaced out blueish eyes, ‘split’ down the middle, hairless)
- the blue reminds me of my spirit (I certainly feel my non-physical existence is ‘blue’), and the relative hairlessness is similar to my non-furred/feathered types (also matches self image!) 👽 Body (humanoid, thin biped)
- similar to my own body in shape, and to that of the Na’vi!
👽 Limbs (three fingers/toes, digitigrade, handlike feet)
- the digitigrade handlike feet are similar to parrot feet in functionality, and also strikingly match self images I have held since I was a child. the three long fingers also match dinosaur and na’vi hands. digitigrade shape generally matches my species identity/‘shape desire’.
👽 Tail (flexible, controllable, conceals a spine)
- matches Na’vi tail, though without the furred tip. relates to dragon self image with the ability to use tail as a weapon.
👽 Wings/fins (!wings not pictured! insect like, spiny)
- Similar to banshee wings in that they’re very insect-like! Also something about having fins on the back feels like two dorsal fins, if much more ‘alien’ in build.

Everybody in my family has starting saying I have 'raccoon hands' because they're small and I have thin fingers. They look pretty similar to raccoon paws and my parents and brothers seem to have picked up on that. It probably doesn't help that the way I hold things and grab hold of things is very raccoon-like!
•• Hello Everyone, I am Wohkah. This is my new alt account, I restarted it from my last one (Senia) as I am going to be posting about my experiences with Otherkinity/Fictionkin, Spirituality, Therianthropy and my Shifts with them. I am a very spiritual person now than I was before, I was corrupted and sad. But I am better now. I am a Rougarou (French term for Werewolf), Melanistic Jaguar, Grey Wolf, and my newly found self that I have been looking for, for a very long time... I am a Na’vi individual.. I am looking forward to be posting 1-2 times a week. Thank you all, I will see you soon. ••
A couple of posts ago I answered a tag question about what my ideal form would be and @luxquine wanted me to draw it so here is a quick drawing of my ideal form. It's a mashup of the kin/kith types I experience the most shifts/dysphoria of. I've drawn it with a collar because I enjoy wearing collars and they kind of represent the domesticity of my raccoon theriotype
There's an endless amount of trolls in the community who spread incorrect information and ideas, especially on social media.
For many individuals, their first reaction is anger - they often try to attack these individuals in order to get them to stop. Usually, a dramatic response is exactly what trolls want and only fires them up further. Getting a negative reaction can make trolls more excited and spread word of what happened until we end up with more trolls than we had before.
Something we cannot stress enough is PEACE.
Just as #TheTherianPeaceMovement has promoted, bringing forth peace and knowledge within the community is the best approach for handling trolls. Education towards all in the community helps broaden peace and stops problems.
Typically, it's best not to feed any trolls attention and just leave them be. It may be beneficial to spread a warning about these trolls instead of attacking them. Let others in the community know that the person is false and desiring to cause drama. You can also spread correct information to counteract anything false which is shared by trolls.
The best approach is to peacefully and respectfully use the opportunity to spread accurate information about the community.
Understand that if you are openly identifying as a therian or otherkin, you are a representative of the community! Everyone that you provide information to sees you as a representative. Your maturity and actions online, possibly even in real life, affect people's opinion/perspective on otherkin. So, remember to be mature, welcoming, kind, and represent your identity proudly with confidence and fact.
Before I died, I did a lot of shitty things. I was an awful person and caused so many issues for my family. My dad was pretty absent but he was real sweet and when we did see each other he was nice and understanding and loved my mom and I so much. My mom worked hard to keep us in our home, though it was small. We lived in a small apartment in a nice-ish town. My mom also tried to dress all fancy using clothes from thrift shops and friends of hers. It made her feel better about our situation. She was really good at it and looked like a rich businesswoman. She was really sweet and thought I was the best kid in the world. I wasn't. I wasn't I wasn't I wasn't.
Sorry mom [#angelkin#otherkin#demonkin#kin#actuallyangelic#fallenangel ]
