Up on the top of the blog there is a link that says “FAQ.” This question is answered (with links to longer posts) there, but I’ll repost the links here for you.
My Timeline (events leading up to me picking up the ‘kin label.)
If you have further questions, specify a little more for me please.
What can you do? That’s… kind of entirely up to you. Being able to do those things doesn’t necessarily mean anything if you don’t think it does. Playing pretend when you’re little doesn’t mean much, I use to pretend I was many things, but that does not make them my kintype. I can purr and meow and get cats to meow back at me, and in general they like me, but that doesn’t make me a cat therian, or catkin.
Nothing you said with that ask makes me go “oh! You’re 100% for sure dogkin!” because there isn’t anything really that would do that. at all. Unless you came out and said it. If you want, go check out dogkin/dog therians. If you don’t want anything to do with Otherkin/Therian, then chalk it up to being a bit imaginative when you were a kid, and know that other people can do similar things now.
You can’t. I mean, besides just sort of being certain in your core and kind of having that “This is what I am." feeling? There’s no way to be sure.
You can talk to others that are otherkin, and compare what you feel to what they do, but even that won’t be solid, particularly in the case of dragons which have so many breeds and subspecies. I’m sorry I’m not more help. ._.
Nope. Not a joke. I’m physically human, don’t think I am in some non-physical sense. That’s… about all there is to it from me.
No problem. I don’t think I really helped ya much, but eh!
As a note, I’m not making experiences that involve gender or preferred pronouns. Those are not things that make one go “Oh, I’m an Otherkin/Therian!”# Not Experiences,
