LOL Magentalegs XD The comic's in a slightly different style than you usually do it in, is the goal striving for simplifying it?

I'm amazed!

This I heartily agree with. I'm terrible at remembering which names go with which faces. Example: It took me two months to reliably remember my future sister-in-law's name when I first met her... and I saw her in class 3 times a week.

That's ok. Took me most of two months to remember the name of a guy I worked with 5 days a week for 8 hours.

...it all came down to his cubicle was the only one lacking a name tag...

Totaly agree! I'm a rather visual person--well, ok, I might not match names any better, but seriously, all humans look alike!

Oh, I love it! I do have to wonder how freaky I would look if my muses could somehow physically manifest as part of me....

Haha, I've thought about that one before. It'd probably be fascinating... being able to have multiple faces, spread wings, etc., just absorb and manifest traits of them as you all saw fit.

Also, love the quote on your icon, and love Vienna Teng in general. Her music is heartbreakingly beautiful.

From: [personal profile] notalwaysweak
It would be amazing, but ye gods, I would spend so much time shifting!

Vienna Teng is a recent addition to my music collection, and I have fallen madly in love with her music, especially 'Eric's Song' and 'The Tower'.

Yep! So true!

So nice to see another therithere comic, too! They're unexpected delights.

That happens to me all the time. I don't want to sound speciesist, but sometimes I really have trouble telling people apart, mostly I think because I have a problem with face recognition. I found lately reading Jack (the webcomic) that one of the refreshing things about it was that I remembered who pretty much everyone was, because their unique physical appearances helped me tell them apart.

Also, "Magentalegs" is a great name for a dragon. XD

Jack, if you probably haven't guessed, starts bad and only gets worse. I had to stop reading at one point because I couldn't handle it. Since I've only read a scant few strips here and there when I get linked to it and then go back and relive some of the early stuff maybe. I love Jack (the character), but I just can't deal with the strip.

Strangely, I thought some of the stuff around 9/11 was heartfelt and touching, but I stopped reading a long while back because it stopped being about anything except violence with no end in sight.

Sounds about the same as me. I vaugely remember the 9/11 stuff and it was appropriate, though still Jack-y.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned yet that "Magentalegs" is a dragon in-joke from back in the day of the (late, lamented) Tomorrowlands forum. It was basically agreed to be a logical endpoint of names based on colored body parts. Which didn't make it any less awesome. ];=8)

I'm actually mildly faceblind, which seems to be an issue that's pretty common in a lot of the kin/furry communities. I've wondered for a while if it's a subconsciously contributing factor in people's decisions to join the communities.

Names & 'kin

I find it interesting how many Otherkin are named after a feature of their anatomy/species, or a color, or a prominent physical patterning (eg, ...fox, stripe, tail, wing, paw, gold, whatever). Especially when you consider that they're picking their own names. Even mine fits the pattern (Eredien=Willow tree, has green scales). Not sure what that symbolizes/indicates but I know it's often easier for me to remember which name goes with people's cats than I do with the people in question.

Magentalegs. Ha. (Am I a whine yet?)

Also was fascinated by the fact that the nervous person in panel 1 is thinking the sweatdrop, rather than having it appear on their face. The thinking is very American-style comics, but the very chibi sweatdrop is quite Japanese. Does that imply that they are embarassed only internally? Was that a conscious choice on your part?

Re: Self Naming

It happens a lot, but not all the time. I picked this user name ages ago, before I 'awoke' and because of the uniqueness of it I haven't needed to butcher it anytime I sign up somewhere. I suppose it's indicitive of my species, though other names I've given myself haven't been, some have been only marginally related (I had a character that was a Komodo dragon once who's name was Ryuji, which translates from Japanese to Enlish as "dragon man").

Re: self-naming. I suppose it's the nonhuman equivalent of Baker, Tanner, Potter, etc., or O'Leary, Johnson, etc. Historically and culturally, names are more often ways to pick someone out from a crowd than receptors of deep meaning.

Re: Magentalegs. See upthread. :)

Although therianthropy doesn't appear to mix well with the other occult subjects I study (or at least in the communities based around such subjects), I still look at self-naming as the primary stage of acceptance of your therioform, Naming it and calling it your own.

Except that I look at it like adopting a totem name, a word or phrase that defines a quality that you want to have, as a means of self-improvement, growth and adaptation into your therioform.

Aedelthryd means "noble protection" although it is hard to pronounce if you are unfamiliar with Icelandic phonetics.

NightStorm has been my name since 03 but I have used, BluStorm as another variation. Self-naming gives your Theriotype/Kinship form. Though I just use it as handle for online since
