I'm trying for a greeting with more flare than the usual, and the best I can come up with is, 'Get offa my lawn!' So you'll have to settle for a standard 'Hello'.

I'm another of your friendly neighborhood moderators, and no worries, you can accept candy from me. The name's Caly. I'm a somewhat rare bird (har), an Angelkin belonging to what I'd identify as the ex-Abrahamic Pantheon type and I'm not Fallen, nor is my current incarnated condition the result of some idiotic inclination towards being a martyr. I'll spare you the details, because I'm not too keen on learning about them in detail, either. (I'm easily given nightmares, and I jettisoned my masochistic conditioning, so.)

I maintain a community specifically for Angelkin and similar, particularly as the [info]angelkin comm long since went down. If you're so inclined, please do join. dearestangels </shameless plug>

As a general statement, I am at once completely unconcerned with rationality and appearing rational and I tend to be more rational than many Otherkin, but usually only those Otherkin who run around in a panic, desperately trying  to find and demanding some sort of 'empirical' evidence for their own and others' Kinness. If I wanted empirical evidence, I'd go read about clinical nutrition. I would also be firmly agnostic, as agnosticism is definitely, definitely the most rational way you can go in regards to all this otherwordly shit. However, since I don't care about these things to the extent that it would impede my self-discovery, rationality, logic and empirical evidence can shove it where the sun don't shine.

On a somewhat related note, I'd like to mention that I expect this community to be a lot more forgiving than many others would be. I've had my mind forcibly changed enough that it's no big deal to me, and both I and Ashes do realize that we don't know everything... or even most things. Hell, sometimes I can't remember what I had for breakfast. Still, do be warned, if you come in claiming to be the Avatar or incarnation of/have a direct connection to Teh Goddess!!!!1 or just 'God', you'll have two options: educate yourself or get out. I'm pretty certain that it won't just be the maintainers, either.

That said, my interests range from anything to anything, excluding psychopathic activities, stupid stuff like evolutionary psychology and boring stuff like golf. I'm vegan, and a cranky one at that, though I won't haul out the Vegan Brick of Justice less'n you give me cause for it. I'm also a radical feminist and anarchafeminist, one of those mean ones that thinks that if men won't willingly give up their pornography, the wimmins and mens who actually do give a crap about other people need to remove it from them - I won't say what 'it' is, either. If you didn't catch it previously, I'm an anarcho-primitivist. Yeah, an anarchist angel, go figure, and a green anarchist, at that. (For the record, I also think Hobbes was an idiot on scales previously unheard of.) I love community-oriented anarchy and other fun stuffs. Lastly, I'm an avid fantasy writer, but I can't write worth shit on things that I know for a fact are true unless I'm a) getting directly from someone who experienced it or b) I'm presenting it as true. I'm also an artist and a poet - I didn't used to know it! Okay, time for me to be quiet.</lj>

One last note - you can bribe me with tasty vegan things. (Or pictures of them.)

Welcome, and do excuse my endless ramblerants. I'm afraid that my dear roommate Ashes has zero idea of what is actually rambling, and it looks a lot like the mess under the cut up there.

Duuuude, relax. :) That was meant to be somewhat self-deprecatory, jovial and serious at the same time1. I read your post already, and I didn't find anything off with you whatsoever; you're looking, not just flying off the handle and claiming that you are teh goddeses avitar!!!1!11! I can understand that, definitely, and I also get that they exist. Just not in the quantities people apparently think they do2.

No, trust me. I'm in no way perfect, but I do have a fairly good bullshit detection sensor by now, and you in no way set it off.

No worries whatsoever3. You're good. Having fun, relaxing and not worrying about whether or not you're coming off as reasonable to people: UR DOIN IT RONG! :P

1I went through a, shall we say, phase. Will explain if asked, but it'd need its own post. It's long.

2Christ, if I get one more person claiming to be the avatar of, WTFever, 'Isis' or 'Diana' or something I guess, I'm going to blow a gasket.

3For the record, if I had been worried by you, you would by no means get this long post reassuring you about how you're good. I tend to be much more curt with people who I'm suspicious or wary of, 'cause it doesn't pay to trust blindly in anyone who wanders in4.

4You shall learn, in time (however long or short that may be), that I am someone who severely abuses the HTML superscript ability for footnotes. Hell, I abuse footnotes. My mind goes in a bazillion different directions with each thing - the least I can do for the people reading my comment is explain somewhat, you know?
