is it impossible to kin yourself, or must you kin yourself

🎶 i don't care
about anybody else
when i think about you
i kin myself 🎶

look, i'm willing to believe i kin sunset shimmer. that ship has sailed. i need to know if i also kin the non-sunset shimmer parts of myself

Though, the statement was talking about someone being "Grace's non-Grace kin", so you could argue that I, Grace, the person behind the keyboard, kin Grace the... idealized skunk computer virus supervillain situation I project online.

@BestGirlGrace I'll own up to that one. And mention that yes, I was absolutely thinking about Virus Girl Grace and Modemoiselle.

But now I've opened this can of worms: is making a fursona just inventing a funny little guy that you can kin?

@rockario you can make your own kin at home. It takes a little more effort, but it's a lot more rewarding in the long run.

@rockario @BestGirlGrace i think it depends what level your fursona operates on. I think fursona tend to fall on a mascot <-> kin spectrum. Like in my case, i kin Billie Hellgnoll, but I’ll keep Luna Lapin around as a bit of a mascot for things here and there

@lunalapin @BestGirlGrace Oh yeah, that's a very good way to label that spectrum.

Grace is an interesting case, because many of her per and fursonae would also be labelled "a Grace"

@rockario @lunalapin Yeah, part of what's muddying the waters is that "Grace" can refer to me, the human on the keyboard, the virus skunk supervillain I project online, or the idea of someone being "a Grace", and they all overlap in fun ways.

I'm comfortable saying I kin the virus skunk supervillain character Grace because we're each half of a sort of gender feedback loop, where one tries out gender elements that may or may not feed into the other. And, well, that also means it makes sense that, when people see what I did to my hair, they say "Grace got Graced"

@BestGirlGrace @lunalapin It a very fun language ambiguity to play with!
And I trust you would say something if you ever wanted me to tone it down.

@rockario @lunalapin Trust me, dear, I enjoy it. I enjoy having this conversation, I enjoy exploring it, and, well, I like it when people talk about me.

@BestGirlGrace @lunalapin It's an enjoyable feeling and I'm glad you are able to get it so often 𐏔2

@FirstProgenitor @BestGirlGrace fwiw, you ALSO sort of have this going on. Like, a bunch of your friends point to characters and call them Mikas. Then there's the one you actually kin called Mika. And then there you, Mika, the person reading this.

@rockario @BestGirlGrace yea it kinda rules. also i hate it because the concept of "a mika" is canon in the manga mika comes from

@FirstProgenitor @BestGirlGrace ONS is fucking wild, eh?

Also, my mind keeps thinking "Blonde? Mika. Blonde with pink stripe? Now it's a Grace."

@FirstProgenitor @rockario @lunalapin Right? It rules. I wouldn't be as comfortable in my skin as I am today without access to this sort of gender laboratory.

@BestGirlGrace .hg You? Yeah, I think it's very possible for /you/ to kin yourself

@BestGirlGrace if you must, then presumably dissociation is the opposite of kinning

@BestGirlGrace perhaps not kinning oneself is to be depressed.

@BestGirlGrace there's exists only one really serious philosophical problem, do you kin yourself
