So, um, hello. Alisa here. I’m kind of new to tumblr but I was told there are other fictionkin and things on here?
It’s nice to meet you!
Check out my page to see who is in this system, kay? :)
Wow, so I’m starting to remember bits and pieces of the language I spoke as a chimera. It’s…strange, to say. At least compared to the languages on this planet. It’s thought based. Our voices…had no…sound to them? There wasn’t anything to distinguish one voice from the next, so we kind of just knew who was talking at the time. There were differences, though, like with pitches and emphasis on words. It wasn’t all monotone.
The actual language itself, though…Is clipped. Breathy. A mix of gentle and harsh into one, if that makes sense. Some…sounds of letters and such didn’t seem to connect over our thought processes. Parts of words would seem missing, but we knew what was missing, kind of?
Take my name for example. (angel wise, at least.) Izarsiiel. (which may or may not be the spelling. I’m trying to translate it into letters well enough through the pronunciation I know.) It’d be more like… Iz ah siii ll. Although the iz sounds more like iks, or something. The second part like zah…So maybe Ikszasiiel? Something of the sort. It’s a strange language, and although I’m remembering some I can’t remember what they mean quite yet.
I can’t wait until I remember more. It’s interesting, even if it’s a bit strange since I’m used to human languages right now.

30 Days Nonhuman Challenge
1. What is your species?
My species is a Californian Gray Wolf, Which I believe is because there are none anymore in California from the wild. Since they all have been killed, traded, or driven off years ago. I am also a yet to be named species of bird. I’ve been doing my research which I believe is also from California maybe. I don’t know much about birds but I always wanted to be a pilot when I was younger, but I’m afraid of heights. Welp.
2. Are you out? To whom?
Yes. I’m out and opened about it to the entire internet.
And I’m out to a few of my close friends at school. I’ve also told my old art teacher and my 5th period teacher, but those are the only people.
3. How old were you when you realized you were not human? What made you realize it?
I’ve realized since I was little. A lot of people would call me different animal names and I grew up growling and biting. I’ve always yelped when I was injured and it all was involuntary. I don’t just growl at people on purpose when I’m mad.
I always saw myself as a cat because I hate getting dirty, but I was never good at climbing or flexing physically. Being a kid I only focus on the physical. I gave up on the thought publicly. Until middle school when things got worse and I began to bark a people. Really weird.
4. Do you identify as a part of the “otherkin”, or, “therian” community? What communities do you identify with?
Both actually. I love both the communities and see Otherkin the same as Therians even though there are differences. I just feel we are one big family.
5. Tell the story of the first person you came out to.
With all honesty. I don’t remember.
I just remember when telling my Art teacher she had questions and such but I didn’t really come out to her about it like I know how to now.
Though she accepts me and I honesty don’t think she even remembers it.
6. Have you faced any abuse because of identifying not human?
Yes. Physical and Verbal. That’s all there really is to say on the matter.
7. Do you have a favorite non-human character?
Hmm…I have a ton. I watch a lot of cartoons because those are the only thing at appeal to me. I can’t choose my top favorite. Maybe Hazel from Watership Down. I really adore his leadership skills and how much he cares about everyone.
8. Do you believe there should be non-human pride? What do you imagine it being like?
Yes. Oh man….To be honest and realistic. It would be much like the LGBT community. Freedom. Flags, discussions, boycotting, protesting, Non-human parades, conventions, merchandise, etc. Supporters to us beings. Then the haters to us beings. But we’d be big, and known, and helpful to those who are also identifying themselves.
9. What does being not human mean to you?
It means a lot of things. It means I have more to do with my life. If gives me hope that I can accomplish something. If in my past lives I could survive in the wild, I should be able to survive a human experience. If my souls are two different species then I have double the trouble heading my way. A challenge I hope to meet and accomplish. It means I am made of true art. I have souls with a body of another species. I get to feel emotions that my animal selves can’t, even if I don’t want to feel said emotions.
10. What have other people said about your non-human nature?
Pros and Cons.
- It makes me cute in a way.
- I’m easy to notice in a crowd when we end up being separated.
- Liked what I wear and love what I do.
- It makes you unique.
- Stop that’s not normal.
- It makes me look like an idiot.
- That I just want attention.
- That I am insane.
11. If you’re out, talk about the most accepting person you’ve come out to. If you’re not out, talk about what you would hope a coming out experience would be like.
…I would like to tell my mother or atleast my close friend, who is the mother I wish I had.
I would like it to go smoothly…I would like to explain to her reincarnation, spiritually, and my beliefs. How it’s the soul and the spirit. The old ways on how people used to live. She would listen and actually pay attention to what I’m saying. She’d ask a few questions I’d be capable of answering. She would accept me for who I am and wouldn’t care how I’d ‘embarrass her in public’ for who I am. It would be scary with a beautiful and worthy outcome.
12.Your favorite non-human Tumblr site.
13. Your favorite non-human website.
The Therian Guide. It’s small…but it’s a home.
14. Tell us about a time you met another non-human, whether in real life or online.
Freshman year. I met someone the first day of school wearing flaming red ears and a tail to match. I watched them from afar and said to myself. “They are just like me.” I didn’t have the courage to talk to them. Until the next day of school, I showed up wearing black ears. We’ve been the best of friends since and we are currently dating.
15. Your favorite non-human celebrity/person.
I actually don’t know any Non-human celebrities.
But my favorite non-human person would have to be Tsu. Tumblr User Swanblood.
They really are an inspiration and motivator.
16. Your favorite “non-human” book (as in, non-human characters are the main focus).
The only book I actually read and enjoyed was Watership Down.
I don’t like reading much…
17. Your favorite “non-human” movie.
The Last Unicorn or Pom Poko.
The Last Unicorn is truly amazing on the feelings and emotions from the Unicorn’s point of view. Even her knowledge from danger and evil.
Pom Poko had me in tears and is basically the best Non-Human movie I’ve ever seen in my life. It is true on how creatures die or scatter away because of human activity for their own space for their own beings. How you adapt or die and that even if you fight for what is yours, you can still lose it all and be forced to change into something you don’t like.
I feel that this movie. Every non-human should see this movie.
18. Tell us a funny joke about being non-human.
I actually never heard of any.
19. Is being non-human spiritual for you?
Yes and no. I’m not very spiritual as I’d like to be.
With all honesty the things I wish to do resorts so Shamanism pretty much.
But I wouldn’t be able to do that, especially here in California atleast I don’t think.
20. Tell us a few thoughts about what it’s like being your species.
Rough. I’m a Wolf and a Bird. I really like to listen to nature or native music and I have strong urges to howl when out in about in an open area. I’m afraid of arrows, yet interested in them. I get easily distracted. Wind and clouds make me want to fly.
21. Your favorite non-human quote.
“You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.” - C.S. Lewis
“Be cunning and full of tricks, and your people will never be destroyed.” - Watership Down
22. What do you believe causes non-human identity?
Anything. Spiritual connects, Reincarnation, Mental disorders/disabilities. etc
It’s all possible. I believe for me it was from my ancestors and/or possible reincarnation. I have no disorders or disabilities.
23. What is your favorite non-human pride image?
24. Write something or post a picture about non-humans that upsets you.
The fighting. I’m sick and tired of those fighting each other over how they feel or why the claim this isn’t real or not.
Communities fighting each other. We all have our differences, but well all still have that connection. That’s why I feel we are all a big family.
25. What is the worst argument you’ve heard against being non-human?
There are a lot. “It’s just not possible.” They why is there so many of us?
“It’s only a tumblr thing.” “It’s on a fad/trend/phase.” No. Just because you just heard of it doesn’t mean we just showed up.
“Science says this.” Science cannot prove Spiritually that’s been around for years.
26. Who is your biggest ally?
27. What is your favorite types of cake?
Cake? Like…actual cake? LOL.
Is this a real question or is that a word for meaning something else.
28. What is your favorite type of pie? (Or, is pie an acceptable replacement for cake?)
Oh. That was a legit question. My favortie cake is Vanilla. I don’t like pie, so my favorite type of ice cream is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. <3
29. Where did you first learn about being non-human?
Research. I stumbled upon someone named Wolfie Blackheart on the news.
On Youtube actually. I read through the comments and I don’t remember if I was messaged or if I messaged someone and they told me about Therianthropy.
I ended up stumbling upon Otherkin and Non-human a year or so later.
30. Tell us anything about being non-human that you want to end with.
Being Non-human is not a choice.
I didn’t just say, Oh hey I want to be a wolf bird.
I’ve been born like this. It’s just the fact of the matter that I’m discovering more about it and myself as I get older.
If you have any questions to ask me. Feel free to do so. I don’t bite without reasons.
If you’ve read this. Thank you for taking your time to read it.
Have a great day! <3
