{Parallel selves}

{We’re catching up on our dash and we just saw a couple of Anon asks the Magnetons got. Not the hate Anon(s); a different one. And they said they’re part of a median system with parallel selves from parallel worlds.}

{This shouldn’t fascinate us as much as it does, but oh my socks, it sounds fantastic.}

{With all of the thinking and talking about multiplicity we do to begin with (Where are headspaces? Is there a planet of doors to headspaces? Can one just walk between two entirely random strangers’ spaces? Where do we come from? Why are we here?), this is even more food for philosophical thought.}

{… We should write an ad. ‘Looking for philosopher headmate. Must be prepared to discuss multiplicity at large. Priority will be given to anyone also acquainted with psychology or science.’}

{PS: If you read this, Magentons’ Anon, we would love to meet your system! If you’d like to talk, that is.}

We sent you a couple of ask messages, did you not get them? We are here, all good to talk about pretty much anything.

We’ve started referring to us, the median in the system, as the Parallel / the Parallels; our nicknames (so you can tell us apart and we don’t have to use our real name) are Captain, Magpie and Bob, and we’re stuck on the last nickname. XD

- Captain

"Hello! We apologize for taking so long to get back to you - things have been hectic over here, what with finals and going through surgery and things. Nothing serious, we promise, although it meant we didn’t go online much. We’re glad to see you have a blog now, though! We’re excited to see what you come up with!"

Blake and I are both too wound up (and have had too much caffeine) so we can’t co-drive properly.

Which can be plainly seen just by looking at the notes we’ve written today. Our handwritings are completely different (mine are neat, boxy, small caps; his are slender, and his caps, tails, ascenders, and desceners are at least 3x as long as his x-height), but I can hardly find a single word in these notes which isn’t a mix of both.

BLAKE.

EITHER LET ME WRITE THIS IN PEACE OR WRITE IT YOURSELF. GODS DAMN.

Skin Deep?

It’s a webcomic. GO READ IT.

"I don’t usually care for comics - not even close to Arty’s level of care, anyway - but I absolutely love Skin Deep. Kory Bing is a fantastic individual who makes amazing art, as does her friend Sfé, who came up with some of the character concepts. Also, hey! Mythological creatures living among humans!"

TW: Multiplicity Denial

wearemagneton:

Anonymous Asked:

It’s like you and the Scorpii are the kings/queens of Tumblr’s multiplicity community, the ones who knows best about everything and so on. And it’s kinda scary. You’re obviously just two youths with overactive imagination and trouble to keep fantasy apart from reality, and you make more people into pretending they have fictional characters in their head, even though it’s obviously impossible.

Allow me to correct you:

  • We never claimed to know best.
  • We’re not youths.
  • We’re not imagining.
  • It’s not impossible.
  • We’re not trying to make anyone think anything, other than that our identities are legitimate.
  • You’re an erasing douchefuck.

{We just made a couple of multiple mantas/otherkin octopuses and Tumblr won’t let us submit from our account.}

{The page will just not load. THANKS, Tumblr. As glad as I am that we could submit from Arty’s, we want our account to work.}

To Magneton’s latest anons: [possible trigger warning for anti-multiplicity crap]

artimides:

i-sauntered-vaguely-downwards:

thescorpii:

wearemagneton:

a-handful:

I don’t know if it’s one person being an ignorant douche or many, but either way, they’re bugging me. It all started with someone pointing out that people in Magneton’s system have killed before, explicitly calling out Wade (who responded by pointing out he only does it when hired and no one’s interested in hiring the body to kill) and PM responded with a bit about how the system works- the body is acknowledged as being PM’s so anything destructive anyone else wants to do has to be limited to their world, not this one.

I don’t see the point of the question. I guess it’s to justify the “Are you dangerous?” question that people get after coming out. You know, the question that comes after however many days/months/years/decades of knowing someone and never once seeing them do anything dangerous or feeling they’re a threat. Now, this is actually going further when you consider that seeing multiple systems as dangers justifies mistreating us, justifies non-consensually committing us to mental institutions without valid reason, justifies a lot of things and forces us to stay closeted.

Someone gave their take, pointing out that because it’s the same body there often is a bit more control, and PM pointed out that there’s some trust in there as well. The anon, of course, lept at that to point out that trust has to be earned, which PM again pointed out that trust had been earned and the anon does not know what the fuck they are talking about.

Now I have to wonder what the anon is on about. No one is asking anyone to trust Wade or anyone else if they have no reason to- but PM has damn good reason to. Anyone who knows and trusts PM should, well, trust PM. If someone you know well says “I know this situation seems weird, but I live with it and it’s under control”- unless there’s genuine reason to believe otherwise (“I don’t understand” is NOT reason), you should believe them.

Then there’s the anon who I can’t help but think just doesn’t know anything about multiple systems and complains about how PM isn’t a bodyguard so how could PM stop anyone from going on a killing spree? We are talking about a multiple system, not separate physical bodies in this world.

Every system is different- but most systems have ways, unless there’s severe trauma going on, to control who fronts. Or at least to stop people from fronting. Even if PM couldn’t dream of overpowering Wade in the physical sense, it’s different when you’re talking about fronting/having control of the body. Seconds is the longest anyone has ever done something I didn’t want them to. Now consider how long it takes to do serious damage- factor in that you have to get together the materials.

Also, factor in that people don’t have the same physical body here they have in their worlds. Especially fictives. Wade pointed out that since the body doesn’t have his regenerative powers, isn’t trained to fight, and isn’t particularly strong- the body would most likely die if he tried anything.

From what I’ve seen- the biggest danger headmates are to anyone is to other headmates. I’ve seen someone do a lot of damage trying to kill/imprison/etc other headmates because they didn’t want to be part of a multiple system. This does serious damage and ends up with a very unstable system because the others don’t want to take it. The worst I’ve seen a headmate do in a more-or-less functional system? Bleach the body’s hair.

Multiple systems are no more likely to go out on a killing spree than singlets, and singlets do. Actually, scratch that, they’re less likely to because there’s most likely going to be at least one person saying “Yeah, that’s not going to happen” and trying to fight it from happening or even refusing to allow the person to have control of the body if they might do anything.

Unless you have a very in-depth knowledge of how a certain system works, do not go around accusing them of being about to commit murder. It’s just so messed up to do so.

This is basically the the best thing. Thank you.

I’m putting this over here because it is glorious and I love it and everyone needs to read it before jumping to any conclusions about plurality.  The end.
