'Fictionkin' are members of the otherkin community, who identify as something that is considered fictional, typically a fictional character(s), though that character may not always be directly mentioned in the canon of their source material. (Ex. An OC, a background character, occasionally even a glitch.)

People who have chosen, of their own volition, to take on the identity of a fictional character usually use it for a coping mechanism of some kind.

so you,,, identify as a fictional character? is that like relating to them super hard
(im super duper sorry if i come off as rude writing this) im mostly confused on how you decide that you are the character
like, that's not your character, someone else made it, and its fictional, so not real.
i get relating to a character extremely, im that way myself with several characters, but i don't understand actually identifying as the character

Well, a lot of people tend to not understand things they do not take part in, so instead of being rude about it you should try to understand them. Sorry if this is mean, but it kind of angers me that you're acting like that...sorry. Anyways, we are very aware these characters do not exist, but like I commented, a lot of times its used as a coping method, and my friend's therapist said its a very healthy coping method. Its more of identifying with the character rather than as, if that makes sense. Anyways, its really hard to explain. I would try looking some articles up

Sorry if I sound mean,, but that response was pretty unnecessary

nono dude i'm trying to understand; that's why i made this post
when i don't understand something, i try really hard to get why people like something so i look at the immediate faults in it to see if someone can explain them

but what i'm trying to say is, doesn't it basically mean that you relate to a character super hard? like my confusion is why people express it very profoundly
