I created a little history preservation project today. http://otakukin.fromfiction.net/ i was browsing some of my old livejournal posts and that got me looking at the old otakukin site on wayback machine. And it was really annoying and clunky to use so I took a couple hours and updated the code and rehosted it on my server. Obviously much of the content is outdated and even potentially embarrassing in retrospect, but I stand by the preservation…

“otakukin” icons made by me for myself and various livejournal community members circa 2006-2007. At the time, we were under fire from a bunch of trolls who were trying to assert that our beliefs were a violation of copyright. If you use these, it would be polite to attribute them to me.

crossposted from my tumblr

I never use LJ any more. If you’re still interested in what I have to say, follow me on tumblr. This is my last post here. Hope you guess my blah blah blah. Why did I stop posting and fighting and consoling and advice giving? I’m sure people think its because I stopped believing the whole thing. ‘Grew up’, whatever. The answer is no, I didn’t stop believing, it just stopped being a belief that…

End to an old argument

Some of you probably remember when I called someone out in the kin community a while ago and called them a faker. While the person and I still have our differences, we have come to an understanding, and ceased hostilities. At her request, I am posting our reconciliation conversation here in the open, so that it may be as much a matter of public record as the initial feud.

NaWANKWriMo

What is it about the early winter months that breeds wank like rabbits? I’ve been surrounded by it for over a week, and I guess it was foolish to think that I would not get drawn in. The Multiple community is all in a tizzy because of…. Well I can’t figure out exactly why. As far as I can tell it started out with someone trying to be helpful, getting bitched out about the way…

Well-known Otherkin Stabbed to death

Matthew Finnigan, a dragon otherkin known as starblade-enkai died September 22, 2010 having been stabbed in a friend’s apartment. The suspect, his friend, James Torrey Hill, has plead not guilty to murder and is being held in custody. Starblade was known as the originator of “Fuck you, I’m a dragon”, and while some may not have found him the easiest person to get along with, I know I at least, am saddened to hear of…

Demonic Nature

This post is a long time coming. I think I promised it to and/or oh, literally years ago now. What do I mean when I say that I’m a demon? The problem with the term ‘demon’ is that when one person says demon and means one thing, the other person hears demon and thinks something completely different. The idea is inextricably tied up with a person’s religious and cultural upbringing and experience. How can one…

Reproducing “The Call”

I’ve had a lot on my mind lately, and precious few appropriate places to unload my thoughts. The post below was directed towards the psi-vamp groups, but really, aside from a few minor specifics, could apply to any kin-group, or similar community. I’m reproducing it here, because, honestly, I’m rather fond of it, and I think there are are few people on my flist who could do with reading it. -Mordax It always pains me…

Cruel but true

Most of you haven’t seen my nasty side when it comes to the kin and bonding community. That’s because each of you have at least a modicum of my belief and trust that you are genuine. Its time to see my nasty side. Because I can not stand pretenders. All the do with their fucking games is make us seem as sad and alone as they are. THEY are what the rest of the world…

oh jesus fuck

“Who Was I?” LOST and ‘kin

Ben is my favorite character on LOST but I never felt more connected to him than at this moment in that penultimate episode. Mild mannered school-teacher Ben has just received a jolt of the memories of his past self/alternate life, and is left reeling, trying to make sense of it. He saw a different man- who he’d be in different circumstances; who he HAD been; darker- cunning ruthless; and is trying to reconcile it with…

Pitch for a Multifandom LJ-RP

So you’ve got your character’s right? And for some reason the capricious winds of fate have yanked them from their lives, and put them in another world. Their memories dormant, their powers sealed, their bodies totally unlike what they were before. Then, they start to remember who they were, and connect with one another. Wait a minute, that sounds kinda familiar, don’t it?

Blue Pill/Red Pill

I feel like Morpheus, and that statement kind of makes me feel ill. I received an email inquiry about my mazoku post on the Slayers comm. Asking me if I was serious. Saying that the whole thing just clicked for them. I told them yes, I was serious, and went on to discuss it in a little more detail, but I did have a warning for them. "If you like where [your life] is headed, and you…

The Return of the Beast

***Self*** The past, what, week and a half, has been a special kind of purgatory for me; a kind of experience many of you reading this could only imagine. My detractors would say that I could only imagine it as well. Before this, I was nearly ready to agree with them. I don’t know how many of you are really aware of this, but for a while now it’s been an open secret that I,…

Thanks, TVtropes! :D

For finding me this Badass quote. “Anything can be real. Every imaginable thing is happening somewhere along the dimensional axis. These things happen a billion times over with the exact same outcome and no one learns anything. Whatever a person can think, imagine, wish for, or believe has already come to pass.” — Eoin Colfer, And Another Thing

Just as an aside

The previous entry is meant as a general rule, and should not be taken as an endorsement of the validity of a single person. I’m fairly certain the Avatar-kin who has been causing comment lately is in fact a troll. You guys know I don’t have any problems with using my identity to start shit, but I’m reasonably sure that the person is not a ‘kin at all, so be cautious if you end up…

Popular! It’s all about popular!

On the Causes and Effects of Awakening Early in the Life of a Popular Work When I saw James Cameron’s Avatar, I knew for a fact that it was going to awaken at least some people; possibly a lot of people. The movie had a lot of elements that help trigger an awakening: powerful visual imagery; unearthly flora and fauna, even transhuman spirituality. And enough people saw it that odds are, if there were slumbering…

Gives ya hope. :P

Throughout the years Mordax and I have highlighted a lot of really negative things said about otakukin here. Today, I have the happy privaledge of sharing something really positive. Here’s an email that we received this morning; I’ve removed all personal information. Hi there; I came across your website while looking for information about Otakukin, a word I had never seen before today (found it mentioned on Wikipedia). Firstly, congratulations on a well set-up website.…
