Wow, so many Otherkin here~ I may not be Faerie-kin, but I'm Mermaid-kin, if that helps~  Ignore those who say we aren't real.

I believe they are real, I have lots of evidence of out-of-the ordinary characteristics on myself alone, but there are others who just bash it like no tomorrow :|

No major scientist or research grop seems to be studying for Otherkin at this point, so the truth remains unknown. But no matter what, I and many other people worldwide say we are real, but as long as you aren't the people who put down those who say they are Otherkin, I'm okay with your opinion c:

I'd be glad to explain ^^

Otherkin is where people who have the looks of a human, are believed to be descendants of the lesser believed, mythological creatures like a Phoenix or a faerie. Usually those who are Otherkin have something unique to them that makes them stick out. For example, I am mermaid-kin, and I believe that with how connected I feel to the water and my speed in it, but at the same time I can't swim properly unless it's with the mermaid tail like motion (legs together and pushed up and down). 

I hope I explained properly, sometimes I can be very confusin XD

Usually it's not the sounding crazy part, it's those people who try to convince them that they are not Otherkin because 'they aren't real.' It does make you feel special ^^

Wheee, I'm glad I did xD

How did you find out that you were OtherKin? I know I am Otherkin, I just don't know where to be begin to look...

:iconzaksaturday2468:
ZakSaturday2468 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It all depends on which sector of Otherkin you feel like, and there are definitely more then just Mythological, there are also Elemental Otherkin (I thinks that's what it's called.) where people don't feel like they are descendants of mythological creatures, but they do connect with water, fire, earth, or air in a special way. 
Start off by thinking of questions to ask yourself, first by your abilities. Can you see people's auras or how they feel just by looking at a 'mist' around them or deep into their eyes? Can you swim unusually fast with lack of someone else's training? Do you have a strong urge or connection to be with an elegant on an everyday basis. Then try your characteristics. Do you have oddly pointed ears? Your hands are webbier then the average webbing of a human?
Once you feel you have enough information, start looking up mythological creatures and elemental gods. Gather more information on one of them that matches close to you. For example, do you have a belief of reincarnation, have a burning aura, and love to be around fire? If you believe in Otherkin, then you are most likely a Phoenix-kin.

I hope I helped out. That's how I found out I was Mermaid-kin

Wow. This sounds like something amazing, I'm glad I found this secret...does it also depend on your character (emotions, feelings, attitude, personality)? I did some research when I first heard of this and I read something about being connected to actual animals. I know you could pull in phantom tails or wings...but when I think about it, character has to be a huge aspect too, right? Maybe I'm wrong (probably) since I'm just being introduced into this. I'll do my research! :D Thank you, this is a big help.
Another thing, one last question, when I read about phantom wings I couldn't remember where they would be. I feel like I do have wings, but that feeling rests on/near/in between my should blades? I can't pinpoint it, but I'm unsure whether it feels like phantom wings or I'm just imagining it...

I'm a feline therian. It gets me in trouble sometimes because when i can't hold my anger i growl like a wild animal and i hiss and don't even remember doing it because it's such a subconscious impulse...but it also makes me feel good that there's more to me than just human flesh, as good as this life is, it's not perfect.

Okay, faeries are NOT real. They are a mythological creature that kidnap bad children in the night. You know what a faerie is supposed to look like? This: 25.media.tumblr.com/553b39075f... You know what they're depicted as these days? This: fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/f/201... Some kawaii desu shit. No. Don't make a faerie look like a stupid slut with WINGS. There are no 'OtherKin' or 'faeries'. I do believe in mermaids however. But, I know they are ugly.

Faerie-Kin.

We can all get into a debate on how humans treat animals, and argue about whether or not humans are animals, but both things aside, I'm not exactly fond of a species that treats our kind as little more than pets.

Maybe there's some people out there who would more than willingly offer themselves to fae. My issue is that fae are not interested in "willing" as a quality.

I, for one, am not willing, and know that if a fae wanted something from me, my "will" would not matter. So I resent fae.
