30 Days of Otherkin Challenge

I wanted some prompts for writing about otherkin, but the original 30 Day Non-Human Challenge was not open-ended enough of a prompt series for my tastes. I decided to make my own, modeled in style more closely after the 30 Days of Paganism meme. Feel free to modify and adjust the below to your heart’s content. I’ll be completing this challenge over on Tumblr.

    Could we perhaps get a master list of those who are doing the challenge in public entries? It would be interesting to see others’ answers.

    My system is also up for discussing the topics; you and we have Agora for that, but we also have some friends who aren’t on Agora and are planning to do the challenge. Any forums with more of an open invite policy that you would suggest for those who would like a group discussion?

    We’ve started our own series of posts and the master list can be found here. New posts in the series are scheduled for each Tuesday.

      Sure, that’s a great idea! I’ll get that up soon. As for forums… err, I have absolutely no clue. Otherkin Phenomena takes forever to approve new accounts so that might not work so great. Is Otherkin Community any quicker with their response time?

      • clannautilus says:

        Thank you kindly; we will share a link with our DW and LJ people so they can submit their own links if they want.

        We don’t have an account at OKC so I don’t know. If we have spoons and damns, we may look into that, and into whether we can fast track OKP approvals for people we know are okay, seeing as we still had mod status last time we looked.


      • clannautilus says:

        I talked to Elinox and she said she’s approving OKP accounts during what is approximately banker’s hours EST every weekday. We still have moderator status so we should be able to go in and flip the switch for anyone we know is legit, as well, so anyone experiencing delay, or submitting on evenings or weekends, can poke us about it. (@househesson, househesson at gmail, DW or LJ message, or IM for those who have it.)

        Have not looked into OKC yet, but we could still do it if desired.

        Also, I noticed that you credited us by WordPress-dot-com username on the roundup page…that blog is inactive, so if you have a moment to edit we’d prefer to be credited as House Hesson, with either a link to the blog on NFShost or no link, please.

    Hi, I got here from Reconstructing the Labyrinth. I’m wondering if being a SoulBonder and FictionKin “counts” for this challenge? Let me know if you please, thanks.

    • Meirya says:

      Sure, why not? It’s a meme, it’s cool to be edited or added to or adjusted or used in any way someone wants to use it. I have released it into the world to be folded, spindled, and mutilated to whatever end. ;>

      • hexeengel says:

        Thanks much. I’ll provide you with a link when I get around to starting this.

        As an aside, I’ve started following your tumblr under the name labyrinthvoices to see your Challenge posts and get a feel for the nb intentions behind some of the questions (not being specifically Otherkin, my understanding is limited and different). No need to reciprocate, just wanted to let you know that was me.

      • hexeengel says:

        “nb intentions?” Thanks auto correct for the random letters…

    Hey! I would like to change my website to: http://annwyn.weebly.com/daily-thoughts.html

    I fell off the bandwagon because of life, but I’m trying to do this throughout the month of September.
