i have strongly identified as a crowkin for pretty much as long as i can remember, however i recently got into reading homestuck, and the character davesprite stood out to me on a completely different level. not because i like him in particular, but more like i felt i WAS him. some of his actions/things he said were almost like they were jogging my memory, as if it had happened to me before. could i be a fictionkin or am i just deluding myself?

I think there’s a strong possibility that you’re fictionkin. Frankly the earlier crowkin feelings could easily relate more specifically to Davesprite than to crows in…

I can’t help but be annoyed with a lot of fictionkin… A lot of them contradict what being otherkin is with their whole “I identify with these 10 characters, so that means I’m fictionkin with these 10 characters :^)” since if someone identified /with/ how a dragon acts all while not actually feeling as if they are a dragon, they would not be considered dragonkin because of the fact that to be otherkin means to identify as the non-human being, not with….

exotherkin: I think the biggest problem is that Otherkin has been confused for Tumblr, and such has been many other spiritual subjects, groups and fandoms.…

In my personal experience think it’s pretty normal to find your fictiotype physically attractive, especially if they’re presented in a way that appeals to your preference and aesthetic (e.g. drawn in a really appealing style). It doesn’t necessarily mean you aren’t fictionkin, just that you process the attachment differently.

I agree that one certainly *can* be attracted to their fictionkinself, however the previous anon made it clear that they were more attracted to the…

hiya!! im not sure if you can answer this but is being fictionkin a sin?? christianity-wise?? my religion is just as important to me as being comfortable in my own (s)kin. i just want to know bc im currently going through a period of self discovery and i just wanted to know if can be comfortable with myself and still be accepted(?) and “”pure””(?) as my religion puts it. sorry if you cant answer it but thanks for reading anyway!! :^)))

Well, I am not Christian, but, given that I went to catholic school, I feel that I actually have some hope of answering this. Though…

fluttershyuwu: i propose the idea of fiction hearted (similar to animal hearted) for people who very strongly identify with fictional characters but can’t say they…

For about a year, I’ve been trying to figure out whether I am fictionkin of a character, or just too attached. I have a hard time believing in fictionkin, so that’s part of why I haven’t wanted to explore it more. Lately though, when I’ve seen pictures of places that remind me of Home, I’ve felt a longing so intense that it’s almost painful, and I don’t think I can deny it anymore. How do I come to terms with this?

Its hard. Its hard to believe that you’re fictionkin, and to come to terms with that. Its so much easier to just believe that you’re…
