I hope this isn't taken to be a silly question. I was wondering, is there anyone who might want to discuss the possible mechanics, or reason for the phenomena of soulbonding? Its a question thats been on my mind lately, and I can't seem to find any information, or specualtion on the subject. I'd love to discuss ideas, or Iif I've missed a previous discussion and someone wants to point it out to me, I'd be real grateful.

Hello! This is Jei, previously known as bellsandblades. Things were getting crowded in that journal, so I've gotten this one for various areas of my life, including soulbonding. I was the one who was seeking interviewees for the sexuality psych project.

Well. It appears that my professor has changed his mind about having his students do EITHER a literary review OR an empirical research project and wants us to complete an unholy union of BOTH. So if anyone could recommend any academic essays, studies, books or, hell, paragraphs in psych texts, I'd be much obliged. I'm especially looking for reputable online sources as hardcopy resources here are appallingly limited. =\

And to those lovely people who volunteered to be interviewed, I shall be contacting y'all again within the next week. :D

I'm a writer, and while none of my characters have soulbonded with me (though they do live in my head, they haven't taken over completely. They're just around, but like background noise. I can talk to them if I want, but its not required, and they don't come forward and demand to speak to me) I do have a soulbond with my SO. I can normally tell when he's asleep or resting (we're also 700 miles apart), or not happy/happy. It takes a bit of reaching on my part, but I can do it. I can sense when he's restless, and normally that makes me restless as well (though I never know why at the time). He couldn't sleep last night and when I lay down to go to sleep, I couldn't sense him beside me, so I knew something was up. Sure enough, it turned out that he'd been up all night with stomach cramps. We're strangely similar on so many levels: we have the same tennis-serve style (too much power), we have the same taste in food, we had similar responses to childhood things (both had imaginary friends and such). We even worry about similar things in our relationship in the same way, for the same reasons. Last weekend, I'd been feeling neglected and guilty because of it, afriad I was asking too much of him (he has a chronic illness which makes it hard for him to devote the amount of time to me he'd like to). I talked to him about it and he told me he'd been feeling the same way, guilty that he was leaning on me and asking too much of me, as well. We've never had a fight about anything; we're one of the happiest and strongest couples I know. We're each other's first serious relationship (I'm 19 and he's 17, almost 18) and it looks like almost nothing can ever tear us apart. ;-)

I'm sorry that Miss K hasn't helped me update my diary in a very long time. I'm sure she's very busy, and that's why she forgot my birthday too. But that's OK. My auntie says you have to be strong. My auntie is very smart.

I'm not a soulbond, I'm a little girl, but Miss K said I would like this community anyway because some nice elves and fairies read this list. Hello, nice elves and fairies. I'm sure there are some tacky people here too, but you find them everywhere and you have to be polite anyway even if they are rude and stinky. My auntie says it's noblesse oblige.

(Miss K thought we had to put an accent there but we don't because it's not past tense. Miss K tries very hard to speak French but she's still learning, so you have to make allowances).

I hope everybody is having a very nice spring. Maybe the flowers will be out soon. I think flowers are very nice. Do you like flowers?

I have to go now. Goodbye.

Raven Kaldera and yrs. truly are presently working on Wild Horses, a book on trance possession. I'm presently working on our chapter on bad possessions - more precisely, involuntary takeovers by entities which don't have your best interests at heart or which refuse to behave.

Has anyone on this forum had to deal with a soulbond that tried to hijack your system or who wanted more control than you were willing to give hir? If so, we'd love to hear details, and will provide full credit (under whatever name you choose) or anonymity in the final manuscript for anything which we use.

I've enjoyed this community so far, and look forward to participating. A couple of our guides/soulbonds/house spirits/whatever you want to call them will be posting introductions soon.

We're Pack Collective, hi to all those who know us already.

There's ten of us. Recently, Faith's been wondering more seriously if she's indeed a bond.

She's completely AU from the canon Faith(from buffy, for all who have no idea what I'm talking about)although emotions, urges and 'feelings'(I mean like gut reactions, instincts) are way closer to the canon Faith than mere coincidence.

we're exploring this subject with her, and hope to learn alot by being here, in this comm..

Now for the question.

Has anyone here ever had a SO who(despite your departure from canon)used you to fulfil a fantasy of being with that canon character? how'd you deal with it? anyone here so departed from canon as to no longer resemble the canon charrie in any way, but still went through this?

Just a broad poll for everyone. When do you let your soulbonds front, and why? What situations do they tend to want to front in? Do you let them? Do you have a choice? Have your bonds ever talked to someone who didn't know "who they were dealing with," so to speak? How'd that work out? Also, what does it feel like for you when they are fronting? What is the experience like?

Funny. I find a place like this and I can't think of a thing to say. Maybe that's just one of closet 'livins' coming out. I would say I'm rather muse infested, some of them are muses but most of them I can psychically see, hold entire converstations with, all different from me.

I honestly thought there were a few of me out there, I can see that I'm wrong now. Good to know.

Hi, first off, I have to admit this is a new concept in a way to me but in other ways not.

My names Rebecca, I suspect I do the same thing as you, since my character/s can get rather... more than I can.

I've not posted in a com like this before, so forgive me in advance if I'm wrong and am posting the wrong things/wrong questions etc? *smiles*
am I going insane or are these normal questions?Collapse )

I was going to post this as a comment to the last entry, but I decided that since there was a question I had to ask, I may as well post a new entry. Now... Um... I can't let my bonds front. I can dictate for them to type, but whenever they try even partial control, well... I react. Badly. As in, sweating, headaches, and the like. Now, they've never even tried, but... well, My mother and stepfather were fighting a few days ago, and I decided to try and let one of my bonds front. Eliat, a calm one that'd keep me from getting too angry at them, and he said: Well... erm... okay, I have no idea what I'm doing though... And then hell broke loose. Not only couldn't he control me, he gave up after 20 seconds. He told me it hurt. Afterwards, I tried it with Rose, because she fronted once when I broke down. She reacted the same way. Now, I don't know what's going on. I just can't front with them. Any suggestions?
