empathica: How to catch a unicorn or what you expect is not what you get.

I am writing this for both my journal and my website. It is perfectly on topic for this community so I'm cross posting. I was hoping to get feedback on whether or not it made sense, flowed at least half way reasonably, and was or wasn’t too bitchy. Grammatical corrections are not unwelcome either. Thanks.

heron61: Greetings

I am impressed, pleased, and very surprised that this community exists and am quite intrigued to see what sorts of discussion it generates.

In addition to my LJ info, I am what is most easily described as mid-continuum wrt being multiple and I am also otherkin. The fact that I am both draconic (which I have known for slightly more than a decade) and angelic (which I only realized 6 weeks ago) is rather odd and is still something that I am getting used to.

I am intrigued at the combination of poly,'kin, and multiple. While the overlap between otherkin and multiples is fairly obvious, the inclusion of being poly is less so. Any yet, I am poly and so are the vast majority of otherkin multiples that I know. I am uncertain why this would be true except for the obvious fact that once one gets as far out on the fringe as we are, other fringe attitudes and practices become far more common.

Thoughts?

As a final comment, given some of the issues likely to be raised here, I think that it might perhaps be best if entries where were automatically locked so that only members of this community could read them.

echthros: Yes, Virginia, they do exist

I don't have long to post, but I'll be commenting and probably posting in more depth later. I just wanted to say that I'm amazed and rather happy this community exists.

empathica: An analytical thought stream on being in love.

Moderators note: I apologize for starting this community off on such a strange note, but I can use a reality check/feedback and in its own way this directly ties into being poly for me.

I believe that there are many ways in which people can feel and express emotion. Given that, all variants of loving feelings are some of the most confusing things in the lives of many people. Love is a very fluidly used term, and despite being often misunderstood I will currently leave alone. Here is an observation I felt I needed to make.

“In Love” is one of the most misused terms I have ever encountered. This is only my opinion, but I think it takes at least two entities to be in love. Otherwise we hit the realm of crush, infatuation and obsession. I do not think that the statement “I am in love with X” can ever be true, unless the statement “X and I are in love with each other” is also true.

This observation is not meant to start an argument, although I would love to hear other opinions, nor is it meant to hurt or belittle anyone’s ideas or emotions. Emotions are fragile animals and if protecting yourself means disagreeing with my opinion, I’m okie with that possibility.

This does not apply to interactions that at one point qualified, but no longer do for one of the parties, just interactions that never had an emotional bond to begin with.

Note that this concept is conditional to how I use the term, other people may be using it differently and mileage varies.

I have a feeling I may be off base and am overlooking something important. Feedback would be appreciated since I do not feel like I have adequately analyzed the issue at hand.

azaz_al: Wow

Yes, Virginia, there is a place on the internet for everyone! Okay, okay, I'm not being snide really, just look at my interest list. I was looking for something else and stumbled upon this apparently brand new community. I don't know what to say right no but it is all very cool.
