Hello, my (user)name is Ishvala and my spirit name is Kaden (Caden). I've studied the craft since I was a child, but never thought to join a coven until recently. I study the darker aspects such as Chaos Magic and Blood Magic, and my practices range from that and onward. When it comes to personal beliefs, I think that morals and values are all different and they affect what appeals to an individual. I favor a few deities in my work, but none of them seem note-worthy as I rarely call on their aid. Due to my practice being very vengeful or otherwise dangerous, I do not use my personal skill as it is still both unrefined and quite easily backfires. Certainly not something for the weak willed.
To get into a more laid back topic, I'm a student and employee at a local comic shop. I am working on a degree in nursing. I've been pulling a lot of research into psychology and animal behavior. As I am an Otherkin (One who spiritually identifies as inhuman) it is important to know as much as possible about animals and nature, as well as mythological folklore and its creatures. I'm a large fan of old cartoons and video games. I'm also a sucker for romance or action, but comedy-horror is nice when done right. My personal fandoms are The Runaways comics and Kingdom Hearts. Kylo Ren is an emo child that needs protecting. I live in a one bedroom apartment with my Christian roommate and girlfriend who supports me wildly despite the spiritual differences. Sushi is my life and I will never ever refuse it.

I currently have read a variety of books on Paganism, Shamanism and Occult Magic. I am looking to further my knowledge into more "White Witch" practices because while I don't see myself applying them, I see them as helpful to know. Any messages sent to me about research or tutoring will be refused, though I will happily give you links to preferred authors.

What is a Therian and/or an Otherkin?
A Therian is someone who spiritually, psychologically or neurologically identifies as an earthly animal.
An Otherkin is someone who spiritually, psychologically, or neurologically identifies as a non-earthly animal or mythological creature.
Both terms are thought to be birthed off of Tumblr, but are actually real communities with fully functioning members of society despite the bad rap they get from online spawn. If you'd like to learn more, please visit a trusted site likehttp://therian-guide.com/
What does being Genderfluid mean?
Gender fluid is a gender identity that refers to a person's gender which varies over time. A gender fluid person may at any time identify as a male, female, neutrois, or any other non-binary identity, or some combination of identities. Their gender identity can also vary at random or vary in response to different circumstances.
What are Demiromantics and Graysexuals?
Sexuality has three spectrums . The first and most commonly known is, well, Sexuality. This has things such as Homosexuality, Heterosexuality, and Bisexuality in it. The opposite end is Asexuality, which generally means having no sex drive or sexual desires for other people. In the middle of that spectrum is the Ace sexualities or "Ace Umbrella" which consists of Demisexuality or Graysexuality (and some others,). Graysexuality is a term for those who do not experience Sexual Attraction 80% of the time, but can at times experience it. They might also experience it regularly, but have a shockingly low sex drive to where it's barely recognizable. There are also Graysexuals who may enjoy and exhibit a normal sex drive but only under a very strict set of conditions - otherwise, it simply will not have that same effect.
To explain Demiromantic, I need to say that there exist four primary attractions.
Those all having been stated, the average non-demiromantic person will always feel romantic and sexual attraction for someone. They only "might" feel sensual or aesthetic attraction for them. A Demiromantic on the other hand "might" have the possibility of feeling Sexual and sensual attraction only after forming a romantic and aesthetic bond. We cannot in any way form a sexual and sensual bond first. It is neurologically impossible for us.

Why did you share all of that with us?
The more one person knows today, the more three people might know tomorrow. Providing awareness and truth to clouded internet confusion is a good way to start a very small climb to opening the minds of otherwise closed off individuals. Whether it works or not is up to you.
------------ I WILL ABSOLUTELY NOT ---------------
Have a blessed day.
