So far tonight I’ve had two new people contact me about the Northern Virginia Otherkin Meetups I run.  For anyone else who’s wondering, the next one will be at 6pm on February 22nd at Meaza near Bailey’s Crossroads.

Damn…not far from my home at all. I would go, but i will be out of town.

I’ve been running it since 2012 on a more or less monthly basis (we did skip December and January due to scheduling conflicts) and don’t anticipate it to stop anytime soon, so you’ll have plenty of other chances if you’d like to attend sometime.  

It’s usually somewhere around Falls Church, Vienna, Tyson’s Corner, or Fairfax with the exact location depending on what restaurant we feel like that month (or more accurately, what restaurant I feel like usually because most of the time nobody else expresses an opinion and it falls to me to pick.)

The new iteration of Straight Tracks Webring is now operational, running on some new custom software I’ve been working on (Draupnir Ringmaker v 1.0 for Wordpress - still in alpha).

For anyone who doesn’t know, a webring is a group of sites that are all linked to one another in a circular manner so that you can go from one site to the next, and the next, and so on.  You can also usually get a listing of all the sites in the ring, and jump to a site at random.  

Such rings are almost always organized around particular topics.  The organizing topic for Straight Tracks is, of course, otherkin.  If you’re interested, feel free to add your otherkin-themed sites/blogs/etc.  The necessary code will be emailed to whatever address you use to register for the site.

Yes, we’re still having it on the 5th.  However, the restaurant we were going to have it at has had a fire and is still undergoing repairs — found this out on Sunday when I tried to go there.  So, venue change - we’re going to have it at Tequila Grande in Vienna, VA instead.  http://www.tequilagrande.com/

Hi everyone, this is just a quick reminder to let you all know that the next Northern Virginia Otherkin Meetup will take place on August 10, 2013 at Meaza on Columbia Pike, Falls Church, VA.  
At this time, 6 people have RSVPed for the event including one coming from as far away as Philadelphia.  9 others have said they may be coming.  So this is looking to be one of our larger meetups.

We’ll be starting at 6pm, and going until at least 8pm possibly later if people want to.

Please let me know if you are planning to attend, so we can have an accurate count to give the wait staff for our table(s).  You can reach me at jarandhel@gmail.com as always, or via instant messenger: I’m TrickstersSon on AIM and jarandhel@gmail.com on Google talk.  I have a smart phone again, so last minute RSVPs are ok, and rides from the metro can be arranged if necessary but the more notice on that sort of thing the better.

Also, just in case you have trouble finding us when you get there, here is a link to a page with a photo of me so you can recognize me: http://anotherwiki.org/wiki/Jarandhel_Dreamsinger  The restaurant staff will not know what you are talking about if you ask them about an otherkin meetup, they just know us as a group of friends who eat there together. Our general policy is discretion, and not involving the staff or other patrons in our spirituality without their consent.


Hope to see folks there!

Me: Sorry. I hope you find someone, I know how hard looking can be.
Him: lol and yet yoiu cab use your ebergy to grt anyone
Him: u can use ur energy to get anyone

Conversation I unfortunately had tonight.  Folks, this is a textbook example of how NOT to proposition someone in the community.  Sensing someone’s energy does not give you an instant connection with them, much less let you know what’s going on in their head and what they do or do not need in their love lives.  Even if they do happen to need a lover and/or someone to hold at  night, that doesn’t mean you’re going to be it.  Especially if you make no effort to get to know them as a person, or let them get to know you.  Making it all about their “energy” and how much you want it really isn’t as flattering as you might think.  And suggesting that they could and would use their “energy” to “get anyone” is actually rather insulting as it implies a serious lack of ethics.

Identifying information removed because this message is about the action, not the person, and I know damned well he’s not the only person out there trying lines like this.

silveth reblogged your post: Weekly Otherkin Chat

Tip your chanop, we’ll be here all week! Srsly tho. Of course IRC channels are open all the time. I wonder if it might…

LOL, remember though we’re old hands at IRC.  A lot of the people here on tumblr may not be and may not realize that IRC channels are persistent environments.

Having other people hosts chats on other nights might be an idea, but I’m not sure how much it’s needed.  Right now there are six people in channel, and I’m not one of them, so there’s no dearth of activity on “off days”.  And I think sending out notices of a chat more frequently is liable to just annoy people.

Just wanted to mention, the weekly otherkin chat went fairly well. We had about 19 people show up, including myself, with 14 as the max we had in the channel at any given time. Some good discussion was had, and we all got to know each other a lot better I’d say….

oh is it? you said weekly so i just assumed.

Once a week we have an official scheduled chat, so that people know there will *definitely* be folks in channel to talk with at that time.  But the channel itself is open all the time and people can just come hang out whenever.

I’ve got to get on there some time!!

Like I said to deertaur, why wait? The channel is open all the time, not just once a week during the official chat, and there are still 8 of us on!

Why wait? The channel is open all the time, not just once a week, and there are usually at least some folks lurking.  Still 8 people in channel at the moment.
