am i just really out of the loop??? what are “irl”s??????
In this situation, there are two specific definitions it would refer to. The alterhuman context, and the psychosis / delusions context.
Circa 2012/2013 ? otherkinity and fictionkinity started get widely known and popular so to speak. People started saying 'I'm literally [fictotype]' or '[fictotype] irl' to distinguish that their legitimacy of their identity as their fictotype. This was for a variety of reasons. From simply reaffirming their own identity due to mental health concerns to the asshole move of calling other people with the same fictotype fake. This has carried on over the years with varying degrees of popularity in the community. For the most part, it can have negative undertones.
Circa 2020 / 2021, someone coined the term 'delusional attachments'. People attribute this term to twitter user(s) 'swaggotfan' or 'lgbtdni', but I have no hard proof of that.
Delusional attachment definition
"A delusional attachment (DA) is a term that psychotics have coined as an alternative to the term 'Identity Delusion', in which someone believes that they are another 'being' than they actually are, whether that be a real person, a fictional character, a nonhuman creature, an object, etc. The term and experience of having a DA is exclusive to those who experience Psychosis! The term 'Delusional Attachment' itself was coined by the psychotic community and is not a medical term. It seems to be an alternative term for an Identity Delusion, likely made as there is little information online about Identity Delusions and Grandiose Delusions in general, despite Grandiose Delusions being relatively common amongst psychotics." [cite https://das.crd.co/ ]
Colloquially, delusional attachment is used interchangeably with the acronym 'irl', in addition to other terms. As far as I know, 'irl' in the context doesn't have any potential negative connotations or implications of calling others fake.
Naturally, the acronym 'irl' can have different meanings depending on the context. You'll have to use your best judgement in the respective situations.

ps if anyone has more references for delusional attachment infos, preferably written by people who are actually psychotic, or experience delusions, I'd really appreciate a link. The one I linked above is decent, but suffered a hack which makes the stability of linking it in the future a bit worrisome.

I can’t find the post discussing Unus Annus as factkin or fictionkin so I’m putting my copy of the response during that discussiong here for archival purposes.
--
From the now deleted wiki page:
"In the hunger games video on April 5th, 2020, they confirmed Unus and Annus as two entities separate from Mark and Ethan."
https://unus-annus.fandom.com/wiki/Content_Deleted?diff=prev&oldid=1098
the archive.is page I made for the above link: https://archive.is/sKF5B
https://archive.org/details/unus-annus/We+Made+Every+YouTuber+Battle+in+the+Hunger+Games.mp4 timestamp: 2:20 minutes
Transcript from 2:00-2:25
Markiplier: we're definitely doing Logan
Ethan: Logan
Markiplier: And... Jake. Jake Paul.
Ethan: Should we have Unus and Annus in there too?
Markiplier: Ooh interesting, interesting, interesting.
Ethan: Should it just be 'Ethan' and 'Mark'? Or we doing unus and annus?
Ethan: let's do unus unus--
Markiplier: Ok, we'll do us.
Ethan: Oh wait, are those different entities?
Markiplier: Yeah.
Ethan: Damn. Damn, damn, damn.

factives are basically just the system version of factkins (introjects that are just like, real people) so they're also not real or legitimate
I’m going to quote other people because I'm not a host or in a system and it's best to hear directly from those who are knowledgeable in this matter!
@factive-tips-and-love said here [ https://factive-tips-and-love.tumblr.com/post/170650421924/ ]
"A factive is an introject of a real life person, introjected into a DID or OSDD system. Most of the time its an introject of an abuser but it can also be a celebrity, public figure, or family member or friend"
So! Factives are a legitimate occurrence for systems! They are not the same as factkin and should not be confused! 
Please check out @headmatesfaq for information, or their blogroll for additional blogs centered towards discussing and sharing their experiences with Systems! blogroll link: https://headmatesfaq.tumblr.com/blogroll Good luck learning about systems and DID, anon!

one of the dsmp guys (eret?) has specifically said that "the characters they play are them". https://smp-boundaries.tumblr.com/post/628902780078374912/list-of-boundaries-eret it's at the very bottom of the page but he says "No…. because, with content creators, we are our characters. Like, you have, fuckin Harry Potter - Danielle Radcliffe was playing Harry Potter - they’re two very different people. Um… with us, we’re us. Eret is my online - (clip ends)" thus that would make it factkin.
(on shipping)
TTS Dono: people like to argue that they’re shipping the characters content creators play up, not the people themselves.
Eret: (overlapping) No.
TTS Dono: for example, Funny’s fox persona with another’s persona. Opinions?
Eret: No…. because, with content creators, we are our characters. Like, you have, fuckin Harry Potter - Danielle Radcliffe was playing Harry Potter - they’re two very different people. Um… with us, we’re us. Eret is my online - (clip ends)
from here https://www.tumblr.com/blog/view/smp-boundaries/628902780078374912/
That's about 'shipping' actual human beings together as if they were fictional characters without agency. Nothing about fictionkin. That's also a year old and idk if Eret has mentioned anything about fictionkin.
This is the fictional character Eret from the source Dream SMP.
"This page is about the character on the Dream SMP. For the YouTuber who plays this character, see Eret.
Eret is the seventeenth member of the Dream SMP, joining on July 19, 2020. They are the king of the Dream SMP and a former revolutionary of L'Manberg. Though they were briefly removed from the position during the Manberg vs Pogtopia War up until the Dethronement Fallout, they have since reclaimed their royal title from Dream.
Due to their turncoat actions in the Dream Team SMP vs. L'Manberg War, they briefly served as an antagonist to L'Manberg, and were considered by many as a traitor. They have since made an effort to redeem themself, assisting Pogtopia in The Manberg Rebellion, and attempting to revive one of the people they hurt, Wilbur Soot. "
"Fiction notice: All banter and fighting seen in streams/videos are purely fictional and should not be taken seriously. It is highly disrespectful to send hate towards anyone so please refrain from doing so at any point."
From here https://dreamteam.fandom.com/wiki/Eret/SMP
The Eret kin and Dream SMP kin aren't kin of real people. They're kin of fictional characters. They do share the same name, assumably because it's easier to remember and recognize when another actor is talking to a specific person. Occasionally they don't have the same name, such as Wilbur Soot becoming Ghostbur.
The wiki page helpfully points out that the actors [streamers] are in character during streams. There is a point where they start portraying fictional characters they made in their roleplaying game.
I understand completely where you're coming from though. It's pretty confusing and trying to crack open a twitch stream archive to figure out what's going on is pretty difficult. By now the world building and lore is massive and there's 20+ characters to keep track of. Like, look at this lol
"While Philza had actually considered approving the adoption, Eret did not show up on the day of the adoption, disappointing Fundy and thus leading to Philza's withhold of his signature. It was later revealed by Eret OOC that Fundy had not told them in advance regarding the adoption, and when they were notified, they were celebrating Thanksgiving and were unable to be on the server. However, they also clarified that the adoption was not off, and that they are only waiting for an appropriate time when the three of them can officiate the adoption altogether. "
That's not how adoption works in real life, clearly, and this does state there is a concept of IC and OOC enacted for the streamers and their characters. Not to mention a preemptive discussion of how their story sessions will go.
Think of it this way. It's a Dungeon and Dragons game. Except it's not played on a table, it's played inside a minecraft server. Does that make sense?
Connie / Mod Party Cat!
ps thank you so much for being the most normal and calm person in the inbox about this.

Warning Regarding the FFVII House Cult
Alright, I really didn’t wanna have to make this post, because when I saw some information on SoulBonding in the tags I was excited. The death of the SBing community is hard to deal with when it’s a framework some of us here really work well with, and it’s so frustrating that the word itself is ever associated with the infamous FFVII House cult, but here we are.
Tumblr user jenova-calamity-of-the-skies made [an oddly-formatted but otherwise helpful post] on SoulBonding in the tags, but I noticed that URL and the character and I got incredibly suspicious. I checked her bio, and on a whim checked the archive of testimonies regarding FFVII House to find nearly the exact same bio copy-pasted from there to here. This is the former leader of the FFVII House cult, or a copycat.
Tumblr media
(from their tumblr about, archived here)
Tumblr media
(from an archive of testimonies about FFVII house showing Jen’s bio, linked here)
You can go through and read the rest yourself, but this is pretty clearly either Jen or a purposeful imitator. Neither is good, both are potentially dangerous, and one is unquestionably dangerous.
Please! @ young members of the kin and plural communities, you especially should educate yourselves on this group! Learn who they are and how to avoid them and others like them, because they will use the passage of time and the community’s fading memory of them to take advantage of those who don’t know.

Hello! I'm @/kuroocrow! I honestly don't think I ever had a mod name here or I don't remember it oops! (Might have been Mod Nozomi?) I just wanted to make this post to address some issues I noticed.
No, you never introduced yourself. I looked for who you were when I joined the blog so I could coordinate who was doing what tasks so we weren’t stepping on each others toes and what not. 
So, I joined this blog when I was... 13? 14? Somewhere in there. It was quite a few years ago, like, towards the beginning. I didn't stay on for long since I was overwhelmed by the amount of asks and everything. I was excited to a part of the community but didn't realize how much work went into it! (So, mad respect mods)
But you told Maude you were 18 on the mod application. Also that your name back then was ‘Jay’. That wasn't very good of you, honestly. There's a reason they asked for adults only. Because children shouldn't have to deal with both school/life and how busy the confession blog was back then. Plus Maude is an adult, and moderating a blog with children wasn’t something they were comfortable with. That was a rule I remember suggesting them to put into place because they should be responsible about members, since they would have to coordinate with other mods constantly.
I never deleted asks (maybe one or two that went against the rules, but never without reason or at random.) I get there may have been confusion because this was at the time when Tumblr like.... really sucked. It still does, honestly.
I can't believe this at all. I've seen messages disappearing from the inbox and queue and published posts. I know they were deleted because they still remain in the activity page even after being deleted or published. I'VE HAD MY OWN CONFESSIONS DELETED!! I’ve refreshed a page and seen them disappear.  Tumblr has problems, but never randomly deleting published messages.
Popular blogs are having messages and asks disappear, tags aren't working right... it's a mess. But, I never intentionally deleted asks anyone sent in.
Who? What blogs? I asked tumbling-star about this and never got a response, but that’s understandable. I said I wasn’t comfortable with continuing a conversation because of you being so strange to other mods. This whole mess was upsetting and I didn’t want to continue it. If you mean deleted messages containing adult content, that's due to the Dec 17th TOS changes, not tumblr bugs. And it's known how tumblr tags function at this point. Ask any gif maker or graphic editor how to tag posts to appear in the search index.
After a bit I left the blog. (I'll explain why I'm still here hang on) I was afraid and honestly felt guilty for abandoning it so quickly after I was trusted to join. So, I avoided contact with the other mods in a sense of Dumb 13 Year Old paranoia. It was a dumb decision to not explain then, and for that I apologize.
NO YOU DIDN'T. YOU NEVER LEFT THE BLOG. You have been a member this entire time. You blocked me after i asked you to leave the blog. That was in 2016. The tumblr timestamps say its been that long. It's been four entire years since you have blocked me. You have ignored mod Maude's many attempts to contact you. I have no idea if other mods even tried reaching out. I'm so upset with you. You had four entire years to do something. You have not been a 'dumb 13 yo' for some time. Again, you would have seen confession ask messages in your inbox. You would have known you were still an admin level member of this sideblog.
When the other mods reached out I felt confused? Now the messages make sense, but then I didn't understand the context of "please leave the blog or at least do the work".
Again, four entire years. I sent you multiple ask messages until you blocked me. Maude sent you messages. Idk if other former mods did, but I assume so as well. I had sent you a single DM asking you to leave the blog. I still can't DM you even to this day. You blocked me for sending that DM. I respect being blocked, even if I cannot understand why or what I've done to deserve that. I've never circumvented being blocked on any site. 
Also, confused? You were too confused to reply back with ‘huh?’ or ‘what do you mean who is this?’ I know you had responded to an anonymous message Maude sent to you, to see if you were actually replying to ask messages. You didn’t have them ip blocked at least.
I thought I had left the blog already since I couldn't access it on mobile, so I was just more frustrated and honestly kind of scared. Like I said I was 13 and thought I'd get hate mail for leaving. (Dumb, I know.)
This makes some sense until it doesn’t? I can understand being thirteen and foolish, but it’s been four years. You know there were messages sent into the old confession blog, constantly, daily, hourly, for four whole years. You would know you were still a blog member because you'd get notifications and see them in your inbox. Are you really saying you never went to the /inbox page in four years? Where you would have seen confessions sent to the old confession blog in addition to those sent to your main blog? That somehow the old confession blog tumblr was never visible in your blog list? That is confusing to me. But then again it’s not like I can check if you ever answered ask messages in the mean time since your blog isn’t visible to me. 
I just wanted to clear the air and for the other mods to know there was no ill intent. When my friend sent me the post talking about it they also tried to reach out the the current mods and explain so I wouldn’t have to make this post, but got no response. But after a couple days of anxious impatience I decided to just make this post.
One person [your friend?] contacted me. This is the entire message I replied back to them yesterday, February 5th.
 https://fictionkinfessions.tumblr.com/private/190691574104/tumblr_9t5Lnor7sd771GPWt
If they said I didn't respond to them, I cannot say why. I private replied that message, and xkit’s Outbox function saved a copy of it. You know my main tumblr blog, which is listed in the old confession blogs members page. I even linked @diemenkin​, on the old confession blog mods page. I made a post about that, and mentioned it a few times, like in this post. You were / are a follower on the old confession blog. You must have seen that. You could have contacted me at any time. 
THERE WAS NEVER A FAILURE OF COMMUNICATION ON MY PART. I responded to your friend ‘tumbling star’ yesterday. YESTERDAY! February fifth! It was not multiple days. I tried contacting you multiple times until you blocked me in 2016. Specifically 10/25/2016 as per the tumblr DMs.
Tumblr media
[ Other mods meaning Vagabond, if I recall correctly, me, Maude, and I think a mod named after a moth. There may have been a sixth one at that time, but it’s been years and I don’t remember.]
And Maude had DMed you multiple times when they were still active on the blog, asking if you were alright, what was going on, if you needed help understanding what to do. I know that because they told me in our skype chats back then, worried if you were mentally alright or needed support. You never responded to them. You never blocked them like you did me, and as far as I know you're still tumblr mutuals with them.
Everything that has happened is a response to you ghosting multiple people [me, Maude, all the other mods], misusing the old confession blog, and in general making incredibly poor choices consistently. 
I was a real dumb kid and I made some shitty choices. I am so sorry for this misunderstanding.
If you're sorry, please leave this side blog. You're not a child any more. Go to the members page and actually leave the blog. That can be done on mobile. I’ve done that for other side blogs, myself. Own up to what you meant to do years ago, and let’s be done with this mess. 
Right now, I can't accept any apology when you have acted like this for so many years. I know it’s just a blog on the internet, but still, I'm so incredibly hurt and upset by your actions. I don’t want to be, but I’ve invested so much time and energy that it’s hard to remain clearheaded sometimes. I need time to recover. Four years! More than 111k posts I made on this blog! You keep saying you had no ill intent and I wish you’d make that reality. I am sorry this all happened and I regret that it’s come to any of this. I wish this can just be resolved and go our ways without further harm.

But, recently, a friend sent me the post explaining my apparent role on this archived blog. I was confused since I had left the blog years ago, but moved on. Today when in desktop mode for the first time in years to investigate this (love me some shitty mobile apps) I saw that I still had access here. My only guess is that Tumblr didn't realize I wanted to leave the blog on more than just mobile lol.

Welcome to Fictionkinfessions! An alterhuman confession blog for those from fictional sources! Here’s a handy faq post of faqs that nobody actually asked, yet, but I figure this might cover most initial questions? What happened to the other blog? It still exists as a public archive here: http://fictionkinfessionsarchived.tumblr.com/ God willing all the other blog members don’t start spamming TOS breaking things to get it deleted or mass delete everything. That’d suck. I do have an archive of all the exported posts. 
I transferred the url to this sideblog because the other members were not active or behaving poorly. @/Kuroocrow was deleting secretly ask messages and posted confessions for reasons unknown, and Mod Maude has not posted or responded to my messages for like years. I say kuroocrow’s url because I don’t know who they are or if they were ever a mod. Anyways! So! Let’s just have a new start, it’s long overdue anyways! 
What about confessions I sent to the other blog? Those will be transferred here and posted as text posts with all the proper tags. Confessions can also be sent to this blog’s ask box if you’d like. Ask responses sent to that blog will be posted there.
I strongly encourage you to reblog any confessions from the old fictionkinfessions blog you want to save because I can’t guarantee they won’t be deleted or otherwise messed around with.
Where any of my confessions deleted?
I have no idea. Feel free to resend them here, I guess. Most of the ones I know were randomly deleted were pretty innocuous and not even against the blog rules so idk. Idk! Are you looking for new mods then? Thank you for the interest, but not right now. That might change in the future though. I’d have to consider how to go around doing that. 
But then who are you ‘Mod Lemon Time’?
I’m a temporary mod. I know ‘mod party cat’ from shared interests and fandom. She asked me to set up this blog and transfer things over so it went smoother. I don’t think I’ll be sticking around because I’m not interested in doing mod stuff. Life’s busy.

@ "kinning properly" anon: i think they probably meant that if you kin only to cope its not 'kin? like copinglinks and that kind of thing. im reincarnation-kin and my kintypes still help me cope with trauma even though they're kintypes and not copinglinks! (though i do have copinglinks separate to my kintypes but thats a whole other thing)
