    Hi, I'm the host of Reisen, Tewi, Flandre, and Lucilyn, all of whom are based off of characters from the Japanese series of games called Touhou. (Lucilyn is a much younger non-spontaneous tulpa based off of Suwako that I created after I'd gained a lot of knowledge on tulpas, and I have a not-quite tulpa named Scarlet & not-quite servitor named Sylvia you may see mentioned on occasion)

    I'm a humanitarian, healthy skeptic, and primarily interested in helping as many people here as I can. My own tulpas are all fully developed and capable of pretty much anything anyone elses' are. (ie. imposition, switching, etc.) Reisen, Tewi and Flandre all came into existence somewhere around 2009-2010, Lucilyn around April 17th 2015.

    Feel free to send me a message if you want to say or ask something.

    Also, if for any reason you'd like one of my tulpas to reply to a post or in PM rather than me, just ask. We have an Ask thread where you can ask us about tulpa-stuff:

    They also have their own accounts:

  1. Second person books sound like they'd be weird, especially non-children's books
  2. Reisen and Tewi are rabbit youkai (Reisen's a moon rabbit, Tewi an earth rabbit), while Flandre and Lucilyn are not. They're all based on Touhou characters, though Lucilyn I made on purpose unlike the others five years later, so I gave her an original name (Lucilyn Suwa) instead of the name Suwako Moriya. Suwa being the name of the lake in Japan Suwako's name was based on too. You can see pictures (and extremely dated self-descriptions) of them at the start of our Ask thread, here: An introduction to/description of Touhou Lucilyn wrote years ago because I was too lazy to write it again myself: (Post is a little broken because of old [video] and url tags getting messed up)
  3. Related but different problem (with possibly the same sort of solution), old [hidden]stuff[/hidden] tags are also broken, EG IIRC old spoiler tags became hidden tags on this forum, but old hidden tags simply got un-hidden (and in many cases probably still fill up pages, like reviews of Submissions) and would be best to also convert into the new hidden tags
  4. Posting in case you never get a reply, so that you don't win the entire thread
  5. (Posting what I said on Discord for completeness' sake) Twitter embed example (this is rare though): And then Flan's post as a Youtube example below it:
  6. You sure like posting that picture that no one has reacted positively to -- Wow, the sheer quantity of people being outed as abusers on Twitter in the last couple months is uh, pretty bad. Like it's at the point where it's starting to hurt completely uninvolved people who simply have to hear about it. Also, the number of abusers who were abused or grew up in bad conditions is beyond statistically significant now, to the point where it's safe to assume something happened to someone that eventually led to them doing the bad things they did.
  7. Does anyone ever? Ack, a ninja, I must go hide in my bed and maybe sleep while I'm at it
  8. This is still a pretty big and annoying problem, ALL previous text links (that could've been embeds) like this were converted into embeds, which not only deletes the text describing/linking to them but also completely breaks flow, like so: I don't know if we'll be able to salvage the text that used to exist (in that example, it was "a couple of videos"), but at least removing the embeds and just making them URLs like "a of" would be a better workaround. Not really good enough IMO, but how it is right now isn't okay at all either. Basically every use of <url=asdf> in a post ever made on the forum that could embed is now a mess. And my system alone must've done that at least 50 times.
  9. caught between letting that question sit so more people might see it on the activity stream, and not letting you be last poster all night because I know that's going to happen
  10. Fronting for a long time won't have made anything harder, it can only help or be neutral. It might not help any more from where you guys are at now, though, aside from being able to give Miri a break/limited time dealing with stress and all.
  11. Why do you think I call myself a humanitarian? To give a general sense of my values and goals in life and to declare my willingness to help people? No, it's because I'm better than you
  12. Yes, it's widely known that I'm only a good person so that I can declare my superiority over everyone else
  13. I wouldn't say they know you better than you do. Honestly no one knows anyone better than they know themselves. The reason that's said is they see you from a separate perspective - you think of yourself how you do, but someone else can think of you totally differently. And some things might be more obvious to them, like "You always do X after Y" where you might not notice yourself. Tulpas definitely fit the bill for a separate perspective to some extent. They're not physically separate literally watching you, but in exchange they basically get to watch you think instead. So in that sense, a tulpa can definitely realize things about you or how you think that you don't yourself. And it can be very helpful. Actually, now that I think about it, a tulpa might know you exactly as well as you do... but probably not better? Well, if anyone could know you better than you, I suppose it would be your tulpa.
  14. Who's going off topic in general discussion threads? You mean like mid-post? Off-topic-in-on-topic-threads has been a recurring problem on any forum ever made, it's always up to the mods to.. well, you already do everything called for, whether reminding people to stay on topic or splitting/recommending making a new thread etc. What's the problem? It's usually fine if someone has both on-topic and off-topic content in a single post, but then if that does lead to off-topic replies, that's when a mod (or just anyone, like me) is supposed to say to keep it on topic.
