My self-summary
I am a self admitted member of the Otherkin Community. If you want to find out what type, look me up as I am not discussing it here. I will say that I consider myself an ethical predator, as I live by a very strict code. That code, however, may not exactly be similar to the codes that most members of our society live by.

I am an allied medical professional, working a good job with a fantastic doctor. I also live off the money I make at my small business making and selling jewelry, the stones for which I cut myself, and other pieces of craft work.

I am a very ardent occultist, devouring any works I come across on the subject, though I prefer historical and anthropological work to new age fluff by a large margin. Currently my occult interests are wound up in Mesoamerican spirituality and philosophy, and trying to integrate that into modern day shamanic magical practice. I consider myself an active Pagan and attend events at Four Quarters Farm as often as I can.

Otherwise, I have heard others describe me as looking like a biker due to my tattoos. I don't particularly care what others think of my body art, as all of it is based in my spirituality. Anyone who is too frightened by my appearance to give me a chance is, in my opinion, not worth my time.

I am confident, well read, and have been told I am a bit intimidating. I also have no interest whatsoever in the traditional romance gestures of our culture....roses, chocolate, wine and silly and useless underwear are a waste of my time and your money. I am here looking for a friends with benefits situation with someone who is intelligent, curious and adventurous. Ideally I prefer a fellow outdoors person and bonus points if you practice martial arts, know a great deal about anthropology or biology and like to camp or explore nature.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I am taking classes when I can afford to in western medicine, specifically medical lab tech work specializing in Phlebotomy, and working on studying for my certification as a Medical Lab Tech. I have my phlebotomy certification, Histotech assistant and my EMT basic, and several classes towards my EMT-Intermediate under my belt, including pharmacology and Medical Terminology. My goal is a degree as a Medical Laboratory Technician.

I spend a great deal of time at my crafts, which take up a large portion of my house right now. I also read constantly and admit that I particularly enjoy video games, bad horror movies and good company.

I am also immersed in the practice of spagyric alchemy as written about by Junius and making art pieces for Sticks and Stones store in Fairfax and my Etsy store. I spend several years working as a bouncer and have studied martial arts on and off in several systems. Currently I am at level 2 Krav Maga, have a bit of experience at Gracie Brazilian Jujitsu and about a year and a half of Escrima and Kali training.
I’m really good at
Art and crafts. I do leatherwork, glasswork, gem cutting, pottery, woodwork, metalwork, armor making, painting, sculpting, wire wrapping, knife making, BDSM toy making, clothing design, stonecarving, bone carving, calligraphy and papermaking off the top of my head.
I also indulge in herbalism and can sing about 40 different filk tunes by Mercedes Lackey and Cynthia Mcquillan in bardic circles.

I have also done a lot of security guard work in the past, including bodyguard work. I consider myself skilled in this area.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, that would be the gauged black jade plugs in my ears, the odd hairdo and the tattoos I suppose, as well as the fact that I am built more like a bulldog than a barbie doll and comfortable with that fact. I have been mistaken for a millitant lesbian on several occasions, which amuses me as I prefer men most of the time. I am told that I look menacing when I dress for guard duty, but I tend to think I look like a millitia reject.

Six things I could never do without
My martial arts training, my crafts and art, my cats, my medical studies, my magical studies, my friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Magical and alchemical practice, my spirituality, the books I am reading and my faith. Why men think that just because I like friends with benefits I will automatically want to have sex with them. Other subjects depend on my mood.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to bed early. I work every Saturday morning. Failing that, getting ready for the occasional weekend martial arts or other seminar. Wishing I could find a good friends with benefits arrangement with someone local who is intelligent, not clingy and as interested in survival and combat as I am.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't do monogamy or committed relationships at all. Ever. Don't bother me if you want to formally date me, I am not interested at all or if you want a monogamous commitment. Also I have had my tubes tied and have no interest in kids of my own or mothering those of other people. I missed that part of the gene pool and am perfectly happy without it.

I don't do dishrag people, and require my lovers and mates to know how to defend themselves, have a strong practical and ruthless streak, be dedicated to a personal system of ethics of whatever sort and be openminded about magic, Otherkin and
the paranormal.

I enjoy BDSM play and have no problems admitting it. I abide very, very strictly by medical and psychological safety guards, including the common "safe, Sane, Consensual" one. On the other hand, if you try to get me to be your dominatrix after a few messages here, you can go do something rude with a pile of yellow snow. Kink is for people I know, like and trust who have earned it, not some idiot stranger on a dating site.
You should message me if
If you are interested in discussing topics such as quantum physics, high and low magic, medicine of both the Western and the herbal variety, shamanism and anthropology as opposed to the plastic feather type, stones and gems, nature and the wilderness or local botany and biology, or geeky stuff. All of the above interest me, but if you can't relate to my interests and don't have good survival skills and instincts, my body is not going to be interested at all.
The two of us
