Pinned toot

Addition to our now that we've identified four more. Will redo this if we learn more about them, I just wanted to get it written down somewhere.

Nightmare - fictional introject, comes into co-con but hasn't fronted yet. Male, he/him, massive jerk who likes to invalidate others and acts like he's better than everyone.

B - fictional introject, never fronted but fairly chatty when he's co-con. Male, he/him, robot, seems to know a lot of what goes on inside.

Z - fictional introject, doesn't seem to want to front. Male, he/him, robot, quiet and self-destructive.

Myst - no idea of role, seems unable to be co-con but can front. Female, she/her(?), porcelain doll, possibly always impaired. :wild_face:​

I suppose we should write a proper for everyone since I think we'll be staying here.

Tempo (me) - host, normally stuck in front. NB, they/them, somewhere around 17-22, likes music. πŸŽ΅β€‹

Crash - fictional introject, fronts occasionally but co-con often. Male, he/him, robot, 15, way too sexual for his age, has no filter on what he says.πŸ’₯​

Ace - former host, fronts occasionally. Male (identifies as trans man), he/him, 22, antisocial and aggressive. Otherkin. πŸ¦„β€‹

Andy - former protector (integrated for a year or two but it fell apart and we don't know her role since then), fronts sometimes. Female, she/her, human/wolf hybrid, 20, kind of snarky and aggressive. Don't tell her secrets if you want them to stay secret. πŸΊβ€‹

Raye - protector? Still learning to front. Multigender, them/them for convenience, demon/shapeshifter, unknown age, broken speech (likes to yell single words), fierce and vicious but purrs when petted. :oni:​

(Part 3/3)

These three we don't know much about.

Coin - memory holder? Has fronted once. Gender unknown, xe/xir, alien, ageless, knows things xe shouldn't be able to.

Aaron - little, fronted once or twice? Male, he/him, 11, likes bugs, may not be aware of the rest of us. Memory isolation.

Kevin - internal protector? Broke up a fight once. Hates to front. Male, he/him, hates his name but won't pick another, possibly fictionkin? He's implied it at least.

I think 0 just became co-host.

Hi I'm Tempo and I apparently have the worst coping mechanism ever invented. In order to stay calm I need to blur with the system member I'm terrified of. Who thought this was a good idea?

Me: *feeling worn out but somewhat okay-ish*
Anxiety: *slams door open* Hi did you miss me
-Tempo πŸŽ΅β€‹

Okay nine hours and I think it's finally over. The worst part? Not only have I been stuck in front the entire time, none of the others have so much as come into co-con for even a minute. Thanks guys.

Hooray for eight-hour-long panic attacks. I think I've finally stopped shaking in the last ten minutes or so.

2014. I just checked and the last time any of us touched his source was around July 2014. Almost five years. You know what... we really need to catch up on it. If he's here maybe that'll wake him up fully.
-Tempo πŸŽ΅β€‹

For the past few days I've been receiving hints that we might have a new fictive. If it's true, I don't know how long he's secretly been here - we haven't touched his source since... before I took over as host, actually, so at least a few years - but all I'm going to say is thank fuck he's not another robot. For once I'm actually okay with this.
-Tempo πŸŽ΅β€‹

Me: I'll just hand over control to someone else for today.
Also me: *still frontstuck*
-Tempo πŸŽ΅β€‹

Those of us who are recently single won't want to front tomorrow. The two who are in a relationship with each other probably won't so they can spend time together. That rules out all six of us who are most active. Well, good luck to Raye and Myst who are probably going to be stuck in front for the entire day tomorrow, unless one of the quietest ones feels like trying.

blast broke up with me. he said i didnt really want a relationship and itd just hurt us both if we kept trying. but now i feel more lonely than i did before...

One more year where my attempts to grow our hair longer have been ruined thanks to Ace.

So, full disclosure time. Some of us have been using nicknames online for the entirety of our time being open as a multiple system - since around 2015, if the first post on our original blog is accurate. Originally we intended to all use nicknames to disguise our identities, but for a while now I've been thinking it's no longer necessary. Especially since as we grew and discovered more system members they have had no desire to join in the habit, so you know most of our actual names already.

Crash used to go by R. That was his nickname, but he dropped it last year in favour of using his real name.

Andy's real name is Andromeda.

Ace's real name is Ari.

Coin actually has no name. Xe has never named xirself, so the nickname came about based on an image xe showed us a long time ago so we'd have something to call xir. Xe doesn't mind.

Chrissy's name was Christine.

Those are the only ones as far as I remember. So now you know.

Raye just said their first word that was spoken at a normal volume rather than screamed. That word was 'sad' because they're having trouble being part of a conversation outside our headspace. Fuck, my heart is breaking. I want them to be happy but I can't fix this for them...

Cofronting with 0 is exposure therapy
But the 'therapy' part isn't working

I wish everyone in here was as sweet as Raye. Cooperation is draining...
-Tempo πŸŽ΅β€‹

Raye's vocabulary is increasing, mainly through repeating what others say and figuring out the meanings from context. They still can't string together a full sentence but we're getting closer to that. Although now we're running into the problem of them being only semi-literate so someone needs to cofront with them to help if they want to communicate in writing... They can spell their name and that's about it. That's a new problem I never considered might come up.

My brain in the midst of all this chaos: "Okay but what if this is all fake and you don't realize you're faking"
-Tempo πŸŽ΅β€‹

Everything's a big chaotic mess right now. Andy made what is probably an extremely bad decision. No idea how this is going to go. Have to wait and see. Will update on this in a month or two, or whenever I know more.
