Hi guys. Newbie to the community here. *waves* I just wanted to drop in and post something, kind of a two fold purpose to it really - firstly to introduce myself (I thought it might be a bit rude if I just started posting and commenting without it) and secondly to ask some opinions on something.
So, to the first one - My name is Lindariel, and I'm 23 yrs old and living in Australia. Originally from England but I am cursed with a wandering nature and have somehow ended up over here. Not that I can complain, I feel quite at home here in the heat. Always had a problem with the cold weather elsewhere, and I have to admit that the 40c+ temps in summer didn't appear to phase me too much. Much nicer than shiverring to death back in England (or roasting my friends and family to death by putting the central heating on full whack 24/7).
Anyway, moving on - I've been aware of being Otherkin for quite a number of years now but have been mostly doing the exploring by myself. Its nice to meet others like myself now and then though. I identify as Elenari, although to be perfectly honest I have no clear indication as to why other than the way some of my own 'recollections' seem to relate to others, minor things mostly, or how the stories of others seem to resonate strongly with myself.
Now, the second purpose of my post was to share one of my earliest 'memories', both in respect to age (past life) and the time at which I 'remembered' it (for lack of a better word). I just want to know whether anyone else has any recollections of something similar and if so where/what it may have been. I have my own thoughts on it, but I always prefer to get a 'second opinion' on some things, or at least see whether anyone else recalls something similar.
The place I am asking about was a collection of large building made from some kind of white or very pale grey stone. They were situated on the slopes and peak of a large hill and the road to the place ran around the base of the hill, and branched off into a fork about half way around: one fork taking a traveller up towards the buildings, the other continuing on around the slope to somewhere else. The building itself was, I think, a collection of buildings although only one set actually stood out forefront in the memory. And that was made up of two, large square shaped 'towers' that were connected by an arch. This arch spanned across the pathway and through the arch was a large courtyard was visible. I don't recall any gates beneath the arch, but I guess if they were there they were most likely open and I probably wasn't paying too much attention to them (I was a bit antsy at the time).
Anyway, walking up to stand beneath the arch I looked to my right and found a large wooden door set into the wall of one of the 'towers' (although I'm not sure that towers is the right word... they weren't gigantically tall but they were quite long and wide).
That about describes the place, if anyone is interested in seeing it in context with the actual dream you can take a look at the Journal Entry
. I really would appreciate any comments should anyone have anything they can add that might help, or if it perhaps sounds similar to something anyone else has witnessed.
To be honest, I'm a little nervous about asking - I'm still going through the 'you're just crazy' stage, or at least thinking that people think I'm crazy anyway... ^-^ But it's been bothering me for a few years now and I just have the urge to ask.
Thanks all. And nice to meet you. ^-^
(I am going to make a duplicate of this post on the Elenari group, but something keeps nudging me to post my query here too. Thanks for your patience all).
