Any other Otherkin here?

Hi there, yea I am an otherkin! Lots more people these days identify as Fictionkin (identifying with a fictional character to the point you feel like you are or were them, this is just the definiton to me.). I myself am a Elfkin that is a descendent of a dragon so i look more elf than dragon.


As I am a spiritual person and I practice magic I like to label myself as a witch, I know not everyone uses that term for themselves but I use for me, it is pretty gender neutral. So far through readings and following my gut I've been able to find my kintypes. I'm not so great at meditation just yet though.

I am a Lokean by the way, a follower of Loki!

omg hello! I'm a vampire :] It's neat to see fellow otherkin! Actually, I'm an alterhuman so a teeny bit different but still under the umbrella term!

Otherkin is not like D&D, it's not a game really. I wanted to reply now but as I am working on college assignments I've been busy lol. Sorry for my lateness! 


It's a soul thing for me, not everyone I've seen takes it seriously really. I take it seriously since I'm on the spiritual side of it as I am a witch and it's part of me. I really prefer calling myself alterhuman since I learned that was another term for it, but for now this is all I can say for explaining it. It's kinda complicated to explain on a time crunch but here's a website with some info called Alt+H that might help explain it better. I can't find where the FAQ was on there but it has the definition of alterhuman on there. I'm still learning about the alterhuman term myself, but as for feeling non-human, that is a for sure thing for me.

I'm not officially an Otherkin but I came to peace with my pointy ears by deciding I was descended from Gelflings. And I am drawn to Elfin fictional characters in general, so I can relate to this way of being. For me it's more of grown-up fantasy play in my mind, creative thinking. A way to enjoy many worlds. And as a wise Wizard once said,  "of course it's happening in your head, but why on earth should that mean it isn't real?"  Good to meet ya.

I'm otherkin. The non-fiction bits include dragonkin, and some Vague identification as Vampire.
