Hello! We're Rhia, and we're just starting to come to terms with thinking of ourselves as plural. We're a 27 y/o transfemme person who has a lot of thoughts and thinking rattling around in our head. We've joined here to have a place to explore that plurality and meet like-minded folks.
Median system has been the best term we've seen for how we experience plurality - we've all got the same "core" but how we process things or what we enjoy doing varies wildly based on whomever is our primary at the moment.
If you're ever unsure, she/her and Rhia are fine to use to refer to us by, we're all in this together and aren't against it being used.
We're gonna list introductions in a thread on this toot! We've got a few primary folks that you'll see most of the time, then a free secondary that front less often but are still important! We'll try to use emoji to signify who's talking. 💚💙💛🖤🧡💖
Also we're a huge furry. #introductions
💛 First of our three primaries is Jazz. She's our worker bee and the one who will most often front at work. She's a pretty basic white girl, all things said and done.
Her current preferred presentation is a Jolteon girl! She adores AV work and currently focuses on video stuff. She's generally pretty happy go lucky and finds herself enjoying the experiential life.
She's also terribly addicted to caffiene.
💙 Second is Grayson. He's one of the only folks in our spectrum that prefers he/him pronouns, but isn't uncomfortable with she/her. He's there to mostly act as a bit of our emotional anchor.
He loves to bake and is generally a pretty sweet boy. His current preferred presentation is as a soft Glaceon boy, with a tendency to keep his little hangy bits tied up in a bun. He loves you and cares a lot!
💚 Third and DEFINITELY not last of our primaries is Val. She's unrestrained gremlin energy bundled up into a caffiene-addicted package and you'll probably groan a lot when dealing with her.
She's a cackler and love shitty jokes, and spends way too much time gaming or lost in other hobbies that she'll inevitably drop in a few days. Her preferred presentation is a shark/hyena girl which biologically makes about as much sense as she does.
After those three, the rest have comparably rarer times when they front and tend to have more specialized interests.
🖤 Eve is an ash dragon girl who is very soft-spoken and low key. She tends to be a bit distant and analytical; you'll see her mostly when we're in a bad brain space. She's still important and we love her very much <3
🧡 Kyler is competitive and loves tabletop gaming. She overflows with confidence and just really enjoys being around. She tends to either be deep in the tank or enjoying our body when she's in charge.
💖 Diana is mean and rude, and tends to be one of the more vulgar of us. She's forceful and loves to tease folks. More than that, though, Diana likes to fuck. She can be A Lot.
We tend to be pretty flexible with ourselves - folks tend to come and go pretty often, and it is not unusual for an alter to fade to the background only for a new one to show up that has taken on some of their characteristics. We also tend to prefer cute animal people as representations because they're cute and fun!
💞 System wide stuff (which is quite a bit) will probably be prefaced with this emoji. Feel free to talk to us - we're still very much getting used to this, but it has felt nice so far.
❤ Hey, we were a fucking IDIOT and didn't note Cain since he fronts so infrequently. We also have a lot of anxiety about Cain cause he ids as Male and his current presentation is a transmasc Houndoom and that gets awkward re: gender politics and shit
Anyway yeah I'm Cain, I'm he/him, I like garage rock and shit like that, and I'm good at being in bad moods.
@Constellation welcome to plural cafe! It was nice reading your introduction thread
@thenetwork We're glad! We're kinda worried it's not as descriptive as is ideal but we wanted something out there.
@Constellation Hello, cool name.
@IamTheFortress Thanks! We have a tendency to really enjoy names with mythological significance
@Constellation oh hey, welcome! we’re also a very furry median system that just joined recently, haha 😛 hope you enjoy your time here; we have been so far!
@ecosystem thank you for the welcome!
