Something about cats and water ✨
Something about cats and water ✨
It's official lads!
Lol not to be cringe or something but ermmmm. Sometimes when I get upset in a certain way I literally imagine myself with wolf ears flattening. Not in a roleplaying sense like its instantaneous as if its actually happening and I feel like other ppl should be able to see it. ...... anyone else 🤨
Drink plenty of water, have a snack and don't forget:
You are LOVED.
You are WORTHY OF LOVE.
You are STRONG.
You are DOING YOUR BEST.

The Dark Wood Elves are a genetic/spiritual combination of Dark Elves & Wood Elves. Dark Elves are known for their hatred of Mankind & seeking to get revenge upon them, as well as their spiteful demeanor, self-serving attitudes, high intelligence, & powerful magick. Wood Elves are known for their reclusiveness & unwillingness to interact with Mankind for the fact that they cause deforestation & treat nature as something to be dominated instead of living in harmony with it. Wood Elves are also known for their Druidic activities, working with the Elements, healing & restoration powers, & Glamourye. Put the two together & what do you get? The Dark Wood Elves! Dark Wood Elves are Wood Elves of the Dark Wood. They have become Unseelie over centuries of mistreatment by humans, both personally & the mistreatment of nature. They are the genetic descendants of Dark Elves & Wood Elves, a balance of both! I am of this race. We are reclusive, isolationist (Loners basically), & live in harmony with nature. We prefer to stay to ours'elves & study our artistic as well as scholarly pursuits. We work our magick using things considered "taboo" by those who walk the Light: fungus, decay & dead things, bones, animal blood, fur, meat, cthonic & atavistic energies, poisons, the Daemonic (Draconic), & the Dark Wood. We are stewards of the Black Flame of Elfin, of which we were wrought.
I post about these things & many more! Link to my Ko-fi is in my bio. Please show your love & support!
— i cant sleep :c it’s storming outside, and i want to go and sit in the soft rain and listen to the thunder rumble, all under the moon’s gentle light 3 grrrr
I wanna just go outside and gallop and gallop until I find a spot I like and then just mark my territory there. Dig holes, place my hooves deep into the dirt.
I just wanna be free for once
Sometimes, when I hear a sudden sound, I can clearly feel, how my ears turn into the direction, the sound was coming from... and in the second I "move" my ears, its like a tingling/unpleasant feeling cuz well- there's nothing :(
My theory on why wolf therians are so common
Note: these are only my own thoughts and observations from a few years in the therian community, so don’t take my ramblings too seriously. I’m not accusing anyone of being fake, y’all are valid regardless of how common or uncommon your theriotype may be.
As the title states, one of my main thoughts is the social aspect of being a wolf therian. There are plenty of therian videos online, of pack members hanging out or individuals doing vocals and quads. It looks like fun, it makes you wish you had that sort of life and group. Being a wolf means you get to have a pack, you get to have a territory, you can do quadrobics and howl, though not everyone does these things.
With wolf therians being so common, they are often the first thing you come across when learning about therianthropy. A new therian may see a wolf therian’s content and go “that feels familiar, it feels RIGHT, it feels like my experiences, it clicks. That must be what I am” and stop their questioning there without considering or questioning many other similar animals. After all, it’s easier to think about it briefly and confirm wolf than to spend months or even years documenting experiences and researching animals in an attempt to figure out your theriotype.
Being a wolf is so much easier than having a more obscure theriotype in a few ways, both because wolves are often seen as cool animals and because wolf therians are so common. It’s so much easier to find other wolf therians than trying to find another non mammal therian. Gear is incredibly easy to find. You can search “wolf tail/ears” and get dozens of results, multiple different online shops. Even things with wolf imagery on them are very easy to get due to the animal’s popularity.
It is much more difficult to find good gear for obscure theriotypes without resorting to making it yourself. Bird gear is particularly tough to find because many people don’t seem to know or care what bird anatomy actually looks like. Where are you going to find things like a set of wings for a specific kind of bird, or something like a giraffe tail or wearable fish fins, as a random example.
It is easier to feel connected to your theriotype as a wolf. Meat is much easier to get than whatever obscure plants, bugs or various small creatures a different animal may eat. Wolves are more similar in body mass to humans than smaller animals, there is less of an issue with feeling like your body should be much smaller than it is. Aside from a snout and tail, body shape is much closer to a human’s than that of a bird or fish, you don’t feel as much like entire limbs are missing or like a part of your body is nowhere near what it should be like. I know bird posture can be uncomfortable to hold for more than a few minutes whereas being on all fours or sitting in a canine manner is much easier.
Vocals are less of a struggle to learn as well. Sounds like a bark, growl, realistic howl or simply going “awoo” are much more compatible with human vocal cords than the complex warbles, grunts and screeches that many other animals make.
People are quick to question wolves theoretically because they are common and often a person’s first experience with the therian community, “cool”, and a lot easier to find gear and others with the same theriotype. To many, being a wolf therian means you get to do all sorts of cool stuff like having packs and territories and howling. Having a common theriotype comes with benefits that aren’t as available to more obscure theriotypes.
— goodnight <3
I want to meet someone in my forest, my foggy dark forest. I want them to be scared, and I want to haunt them. But then I want to love them, and protect them. Then I want to leave them, and make them so alone. But then I want to come back, and tell them I will always be here. Then I want to show them my tragedy.
I just want someone to accept me as a Ghost. Thats all

can anybody direct me towards some essays/tumblr posts/writing in general about how being trans and identifying as nonhuman/otherkin/fictionkin can intersect? or how they can influence each other?
AYO THERES A FULL MOON ON MY BIRTHDAY
— ⋆⁺₊⋆ ☾ ⋆⁺₊⋆
Weather in my area has been going below 70 degrees Fahrenheit and I suddenly have the urge to eat all of the food in my house and sleep for the next few months
Listening to country music whilst painting, is a whole dog mood. At least to me it is. (Country music gets me shifty as anything!)
What type/genre of music gets you shifty?
