Tasherit's introduction 

Hi, I'm Tash! I'm part of the Certified system. I don't think I'll be around very much, but I do exist!

Things I like include cheetahs and birds. I or we - there may be two of us, we're not sure - live up the front left of the brain. I can shapeshift between cheetah and human. Don't assume human is the default, and don't assume it's not.

I am human. So is sophie, I think she forgot to say that.

I like reptiles, especially crocodiles.

I like music, especially of the rock and metal sort.

I think I'm intersex, definitely aro. I might get lewd sometimes. Potentially often.

Sophie's introduction 


Hi i'm Sophie

I am interested in making dolls clothing but I haven't really had much chance to do anything with that

she/her pronouns please

other people in the system will probably introduce themselves later. Rose is usually the one fronting and has its own account @certifiedperson

We kind of opted for this because um, a buncha reasons I guess. We don't really know what sort of stuff we will end up posting but some of the others might get lewd on here.

We have a lot of people in our system. We're endogenic and non-dissociative with one known walk-in, and some of us are human and some of us are not. Rose figured out we were here in April 2020, so this is all pretty new. It also isn't very good at giving up the front or control, but it is trying. We also have inattentive ADHD; some of us have some other brainweirds going on.

wolfpack introductions! 

raja - she/they - default and most frequent occupier of the body. it has been many years since I've met strangers on the internet. this place is a lot more confusing than birdsite but I'm excited to be here!

howlett - he/him - horny wolf with little life experience but strong opinions. still learning how to be a "person" that "interacts" with "people" and figuring out who I am, what I like and dislike, and all that stuff about existing.

puppy - it/its - the little one. often non-verbal. likes pats, praise, playing, treats, and people who give them! it has recently discovered a liking for communicating with cute stickers.

hey @certifiedperson dya think u can maybe finally get us a new battery pack soon? half the reason we never play is cause our battery is always mostly dead on our way home

i'm an adult now which means i listen to my angry teenage music at a moderate volume

he'll keep calling us rose though. and ill be a bunch quieter and less responsive then rose is and our social anxiety is saying we can't do that. we could just say were tired. its not like that isnt true.

Show thread

[d] im bored. were tired.

i wanna be out in front for a bit but were on the bus and got nothing to do, and then when were home, builder will be here so probably rose will end up in front for that.

... we just kinda assumed that it would and it feels a little bit like it Should be fronting then, and idk how much i wanna be in front for him but i could. we dont have to switch just because builder is here.

Wow we are /really/ exhausted

We've been just enough short of sleep for over a week to be really feeling it

Hopefully we can have an early night

Think we've still got a buncha junk to do when we get home tho
Hopefully not too much. Try get it all done in a couple hours, with a bit of luck.

A lot of people have Deep Realisations in the shower

maybe enbymisia?, sexuality 

Anyway one of my older friends who works *really* hard to understand my transness has this idea that if i do not have a gender, then i should not want any gendered / sexed characteristics.

And i have told him this is not the case many times but he is prone to forgetting.

Which would be fine, except that the concept upsets me a *lot.* (not the concept of removing thise characteristics, but the idea that i *should* want to remove them due to being genderless)

maybe enbymisia?, sex & sexuality 

Anyway i just realised that the reason that it upsets me so much that he keeps thinking i should want my sexed characteristics removed is because it is *literally* desexualising me.

Legit all my issues around sex came from dysphoria i didn't know i had, or even /could/ have as an enby, and the fact that i spent a long time having no way to conceptualise nonbinary sexuality, 'cause it simply did not appear to exist.

maybe enbymisia?, sex & sexuality 

I fought like *hell* and am still fighting like hell for a nonbinary sexuality, and the idea that i shouldn't want that, nae, the idea that i /should want to remove all possibility of having a sexuality/ just because I'm trans-none is Really Quite Upsetting

One upon a time i saw an autistic person who sent an ask into an autism blog on tumblr, saying sonething along the lines of "never changing anything out of fear of possible catastrophic ramifications, or worse, being asked why"

Cert boosted

And damn that was /exactly/ my issue for all my life. I was always *terrified* of being asked why i did a different thing than usual.

On the rare occasion our executive function would let us do homework or cleaning unprompted, we would spend so much time and effort preparing a script to explain / justify ourself that by the time we thought we were prepared enough, we no longer had the executive function to do the thing.

(Mum's "are you feeling okay?" / "is something wrong?" jokes didn't help)

And like we've gotten a *lot* better, but it's still an issue.

Some of the things that helped was:

- a pie chart we've never found again, entitled "why i did the thing". It was split into two equal sections, labelled "because i fucking want to" and "because i fucking can"

- realising we can just shrug it off with "idk I'm just like this" or "felt like it"

- realising it's okay to just try things out and be like "im just trying it out"

adhd meds, mh? - 

Also we hate that we haven't been sleeping enough 'cause we're still being mostly useless at doing stuff despite meds otherwise helping

We were looking forward to doing stuff today

And now I'm like "wweh i feel too tired for nzsl tonight" but i don't wanna stop damien from going

But at least we got some wool carded? And that conversation might've lead somewhere useful.

[?] Ah yes that tension between being simultaneously relieved and anxious

We don't like it
