It's high time for a re- #introduction.
We're the Nightsky system and apparently we all listen to Sky collectively now - it's not like we didn't have enough different names all over web already xD (none of those are linked to our plurality tho and for now we don't want most people to know about it, so some of us use new names on here.)
We're a (probably median) system of five. We're white, don't think that's something to be proud of, mentally ill and queer. We're into video games, programming, computer graphics and electronics and dislike that all these fields are still too often dominated by men. Besides that, we enjoy making music and way too many other things.
Our hosts are:
Wind (she/her) - the person most strongly identifying with this body. She loves puns and tabletop RPGs and is currently the one who struggles with our depression most.
She integrated from Lilly, our former host, and Sara.
She'll sign posts with 🌀.
Sara (she/her) - apodysphoric former keeper of our depression who learned to be happy and love life. Probably our most "mindful" member, being able to be at awe about even little beautiful things others overlook.
Integrated with Lilly to become Wind, but came back during a hard time to help out Wind as host.
She'll sign posts with 🌌.
The rest of us are:
Gotos (he/him) - former "protector" learning to be kind.
"Fictive" from a story Lilly wrote, but has been around since before that story was written. Our theory is that he actually *is* the demigod from that story and was banished without his power to this world, losing most of his memory until Lilly started writing. None of us is sure if we truly believe that, but it's definitely canon in the stories.
He's apodysphoric, gender dysphoric, but usually not all that much affected by our mental illness.
He will sign with 🌑.
Rai (they/them) - used to consider themself an antagonist to the rest of the system but decided that this is not who they want to be.
They enjoy a certain kind of aggressive music (if it has dubstep growls, a good beat and catchy melody it might just be up their alley) and keep coming back to front for it.
They'll sign with ⚡.
Firefox (she/her or they/them) - a kind and cheerful plushy and little of the system. She only ever co-fronts to get control of our voice or an arm to move her own plushy body around.
She'll sign with 🦊, if she writes here (she rarely does).
A few more remarks/explanations:
- We use the term "host" to describe members of the system that are most likely to front and to take care of most tasks. In theory, anyone who wishes to do so can become host, the rest of us just don't currently want to.
- "Apodysphoric" means having dysphoria because of a feeling that somewhere out there there is a body the apodysphoric person strongly identifies with.
