    Quite Literally

    I'm taking this group quite literally. All my life I have had odd moments where, for a few minutes at a time, I feel like I'm not just a human, but a human AND something else. Most often it is a big cat of some sort, but it is in no way limited to that. The most recent...

    I Am A Wolf

    My human parents didn't really want me around, so ever since I was 3, I spent all my days outside with our dogs. I called them "my dog parents" and they taught me how to behave. Being homeschooled, gave me all the more opportunity to spend all my extra time with my pack. Now, I...

    I Am An Animal

    Humans are really animals, they just never consider themselves such. Why? Because they think they're better than that. Better than the natural world. It's disgusting, if anything, humans are far, far worse. They're not animals to me, because they're absolute scum. They're a...
