This isn’t purely fictionkin-related, but I was thinking on the argument anti-kin make about how “all otherkin are always glorious animals, nobody’s ever a slug” and how “all fictionkin are always main characters, never somebody non-notable” and… it occurred to me that most people who ARE kin of, say, a slug, aren’t going to be vocal about it. It’s embarrassing to admit. People mock us for being “cool” stuff; imagine how much worse they’d treat us if we admitted being a chicken or something.

This is absolutely true, anon. Also, the people who say that always forget that there ARE people who are things like snails, goblins, unseen characters, etc. They just don’t notice them.
