Hey there. The name's Katya. That or Kat. One or the other is fine. Uhm, I'm a high school student from VA and I've known that I am a therian for about three to four years. I went through alot of stages as the evidence of my therianthropy began to show, but once I found out about therianthropy it clicked, and I just knew, thats what I've been all this time.
I also have a gaurdian. A grey wolf male named "Ishnu". He's been with me since before I realized I was a therian and has really helped me through alot of things.
Uh, other than that? I'm pretty easy going, and nice-ish. :] And I'm really happy to have found a community of therians. I've been looking for a while and have been on sites such as Werewolf.com and Otherkin.com but I guess I never really made friends with anyone there. Hope my experience here will be different.
Name: Katya (Kat)
Location: Fairfax, Virginia
Theriotype: White wolf
Werename: Uhm...I'm not really sure. Its never really come to me before.
What does therianthropy mean to you?:
It means feeling different among my friends yet the same. It means feeling almost at home it the woods, in the snow, at a mountains base. Its just apart of who I am and affects my life in one of the most positive ways.
What makes you sure you're a therian?:
I've gone through alot of things to get to where I am now. I went through alot of stages as the..I guess the word is "signs" (I know theres another word, I just can't think of it right now. X3) that I was a therian appeared. For a while I thought I was a furry, then a werewolf, but never actually physically shifted, but had phantom shifts, then finally went through awakening. It just feels so right being a therian, and I know I am one. Its apart of who I am.
Do you ever shift?:
Mhm. Usually its my tail, or my ears. Sometimes I even get fur, claws, fangs, and even on occasion, whiskers. I also have mental shifts, and dreams.
Some of my dreams I guess are my brain trying to express itself, by showing me what it would like to still be a wolf, whereas others, I believe are actual memories.
If you could, would you change this about yourself?:
Nononononono. :] Like I said before, it feels so right, I would never change the way I am.
What would you change about your theriotype, if you could?:
No. I'm absolutely fine with being what I am, a wolf. I might want to remember more, about how I used to be as a wolf, but other than that? Not a thing.
