I'll be honest here: newbie don't always get it. I keep finding myself thrown when multiple systems/walk-ins or fictionkin are discussed. Having more than one kintype is also something I don't have a grasp on yet. I'm aware that all of these kin are out there, and that their experiences are valid, but my brain can't quite wrap around the concepts yet. My concept of being otherkin is that you are a nonhuman soul having a human experience. Given that, how does one have multiple souls? How can someone have the soul of a "fictional" character? When someone has more than one kintype, is it a matter of having multiple souls, or is it more of a hybrid-type situation?
Most, if not all, of this can be chalked up to inexperience in the community. I've read a fair bit here and there, but not enough, and I know that. It doesn't help that I'm often nervous about asking questions. That, and I get sidetracked easily (see: my sporadic posting record). So much of this is incredibly new, and the information seems to scattered and lacking in uniformity that I often don't know what to run with. I just... I don't really know what to do on this one.
