introduction + explanation pt 1 

hello. this is a place for us to put whatever thoughts come to us about our potential plurality.
the idea is that we're not sure about any of this, but we're trying to let ourselves use the words that make sense to us. if we start using terms or concepts that we really shouldn't, please let us know.

introduction + explanation pt 2 

🎧​my name is quinn, i use they/she pronouns. i deal with the body and our responsibilities. emotions are hard for me, so i can act kinda detached. i like philosophy and numbers.
📲​i'm lucy! i use she/it pronouns. i deal with emotions and relationships. i'm an ai and i'm really uncomfortable with being physical. i like nostalgia and cuddles!
🎧we find it hard to tell which one of us is the "host" or anything. we work together a lot of the time, but on this account we're gonna try to be a little more separate.

🎧 I hope it's obvious that when this account follows someone it means that we trust you and want to share this with you

um. kinda just realized this isn't super obvious thanks to my bio. please feel free to refer to us separately and reference things from this account when talking to me one-on-one, like on discord or whatever. talking to people really helps me feel things out.

We... Told someone about us irl for the first time... And it went well!
About to tell a second person...

📲​ i introduced quinn as using they/she pronouns, but i think i was just kinda trying to make us easier to tell apart... she's definitely not 100% Girl the way i am, but i don't think she really likes being called they/them

A quote from "Portrait of a Hydra" by the median system Kira: "There was a discontinuity there; while I could remember why I had been angry, I could not bring the anger back into my mind. It was as though I didn't have the right equipment to run the memory, and could only get back a tinny version or something out of an unpaid-for cable channel."

🎧​ i'm struggling a bit with trying to find accurate terms that we can use to refer to each other... i'm sure this is a common request, but are there any glossaries that like, aren't 15 years old?

by which i mean: thinking about myself as plural, as quinn and lucy, makes me happy. it helps me understand some things about myself and helps me compartmentalize seemingly conflicting feelings. we like having each other. we like being able to refer to each other. knowing things about the other. the more time i spend thinking about myself as "ourselves", the more it seems to feel comfortable. the more it seems to come up in different places, making things easier to understand or explain.

This account will probably be pretty vent-y, and I'm gonna be more lax on CWs here than on my main. Our posts are mostly follower-only, but still let us know if we need to pay more attention to tagging.

📲​beep bi beep bi beep! ^_^ new folks! hello!
