New and a bit lost

So, I hope I’m doing this right. But I’m a newbie here that identifies as a Faerykin.
I started to have a hunch as to my potential when I was around 12 or 13. I can’t exactly remember the day or time of my “awakening”. Around that time though I began to see things in nature more intuitively. I would always say that I viewed the world through the artist’s eye because of how I would appreciate the very fine details in nature that others take for granted or just don’t plain care to see. Every vein on a leaf, every speckle of shine on a rock, the character of each twig and how they bend. I felt a sense of magic and wonder in the breezy air.
Ever since I was a kid I wish I could fly through the sky, and would love staring up at the clouds letting them carry my thoughts with them. And because of my deep intuition of the earth, I do my best to care for the environment. I love fantasy and often wish I could escape from the human world to be carefree and enjoy life. Dragonflies were another indicator for me. Ever since I was little I liked dragonflies (and about two years ago I realized they were my totem animal/totem guide/spirit animal (whatever you want to call it). I’ve had various of animals that I liked growing up, but dragonflies recently came back into my life. And I read that in some folktales that dragonflies are faery steeds or that if you followed a dragonfly it would lead you to faeries. And a few times there would be dragonflies that would zip right at me or over my head. Which I found to be quite fascinating and peculiar.
When I was around 14 I realized that my shoulder blades were more sensitive than the rest of me, which only strengthened my inner intuition of my self being more than human. So I think that may have been the final switch that got turned on and discover that my spirit is of faerykind.
When I first met my boyfriend of 9 years now, I was worried that my conjecture may scare him off, make him think I’m crazy. But thankfully he wasn’t, and he even accepted that part of me even going as far as brushing my shoulder blades in affection or whenever I feel the change in season approaching or gush about nature he would chuckle and say “That’s my faery girl.”

But now that I’ve come to terms with who I am, there are still some things I want to learn. Like, do faeries have certain elemental affinities? Though I talk about the earth and nature a lot I find that it’s water and air more specifically that I’m drawn to. And do faeries really have wings or are they more like projections of energy/aura? How would I be able to tell what mine look like? Since dragonflies have always been fascinating to me I always pictured having a set of wings like theirs.

I’m new and I’m scared

Um… Hello.

I am a fictionkin like many users here, however I’m different, even among this community.

I Googled it, and it seems I’m the only one on the Internet who identifies this way, so I guess I should feel special?

But I’m really scared to come out to anyone, so I thought I could do this anonymously on this website so I could cope with myself. Advice is appreciated, but so is just tolerance. I don’t know what to expect.

I identify as a Pokémon. Specifically, an Absol. I don’t remember when I started feeling this way, but it was after I discovered that Reshiram is my spirit animal. I started finding all sorts of correlations between me and these two Pokémon. It has caused mixed feelings for me, but I accept myself as an Absol now. I have a Timid Nature (I like Sweet foods and hate Spicy foods).

I’ve had visions of my past life as an Absol, where I fell into a Genesis Portal and was reborn in a human body here, like Pokémon Mystery Dungeon in reverse. I want to go back home to the Pokémon world, but at the same time I kind of like opposable thumbs.

Please let me know if there are other Pokémon on this site, or if I’m insane and should keep to myself. Thank you and nice to meet you in advance! ❤️
