If i had wings i would WRAP THEM around my FRIENDS. REAL TIGHT btw.
Being on otherkin/therian tumblr is fucking wild and it often go unnoticed because of how normal it is to us. Imagine going to a random human saying shit like "oh yeah i follow plenty of angels on there, i'm even mutuals with a few. And demons, too. No dude really, my best friend is literally a coyote. And i found that werewolves are super chill creatures. And aliens are real and are actually the best folks to hang out. Oh, and did i tell you i flirted with a dude from Danganronpa once. Why are u looking at me like that bro. Wait my cryptid friend just texted me, can u give me a sec"
It's just batshit insane. I love it.
don't let your human form get you down. You have deep forests and infinite heavens and rushing waters within your soul. You run with wolves and fly high with angels. You may be bound to this body, but you can still run wild like feral animals, you can feel the wind in your hair like the flight of winged beings, you can dwell waters like marine animals.
You are free.
guidelines for minors in the therian/otherkin community:
predators are everywhere, including within this subculture. block. report. tell an adult you trust if you feel unsafe.
p-shifters are individuals who claim they can physically transform into their kintype. they're lying. they want attention. power. control. block them and spread the word.
it's okay to change your kintype. we're just glad you're figuring yourself out. we don't think you're faking.
"kin" is a noun, not a verb. you are kin. you are not "kinning."
it's okay to have fun in this community. it's okay to take yourself seriously, too. if someone doesn't like your self-expression? block them.
don't feed the trolls. they want to suck you in. laugh at you. hurt you. don't take the bait and remember: the block button is your friend.
some people believe their identity to be spiritual. sometimes it's psychological. respect both.
if your identity is causing serious distress, to the point that it's affecting your daily life, seek professional help. and if you ever feel like hurting yourself, help is just a phone call away.

You may look in the mirror and feel like you've lost yourself.
But you know who you are, and I see you for it.
Angels, demons, deities. I see your shimmering headdresses, horns, and divine aura. You're grandiose and powerful just as you are.
Faeries, fae-folk, my kin. I see your teeth, razor sharp, contrasting those beautiful wings ever so splendidly. I miss when we could fly together.
Canines. Wolves, dogs, hyenas. Don't be afraid to bear your teeth. Not a moment goes by where your energy doesn't delight me, strong and playful and mysterious.
Felines. Tigers, cats, pumas. You're sneaky, and cunning. Your coat shines ever so beautifully in the sun with your careful management. You're truly gorgeous, prideful specimens.
Vampires, werewolves, dragons, zombies. You beasts of the night are thoroughly misrepresented. You're whimsical and terrifying, respected and loved. As you properly should be.
My cold-blooded friends! Your instincts are unparalleled. Ever vigilant but somehow so peaceful, you never fail to impress me.
Yes it's true, your non-kin companions might not see you for who you truly are. But I see your eyes, your ears, your tails, I see both snouts and muzzles alike, I see beings of great power, beings of great wisdom, beings of great kindness.
Look in the mirror again. Can't you see what I see?
