Notes: This is for NaPoWriMo/Poem-A-Day Day 3. This is another fork off the NaPoWriMo prompt "Write a poem that's a fan letter to a celebrity". This is addressed to creators and while it doesn't name names, it is addressed to: some famous creator-celebrities, some fandom and non-fandom Big Name Fans, and some other online and offline minor creator-celebrities (basically the many AWESOME creator-friends we have). Cecil wrote this one.

Notes: This is for NaPoWriMo/Poem-A-Day Day 2. It kind of forks off the NaPoWriMo prompt, which was "a poem that takes the form of a family portrait". This was written in collaboration by the system kids, but primarily takes input from Janice, Aeslyn and Maya.

Notes: Wrote this at Boston University Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation's Recovery Education Program for a poetry class forking off the topic of "sanctuary" that was supposed to be describing a real-world sanctuary, but instead ended up with this description of our innerworld which is what we tend to use for meditations as well.
Summary: A description of the innerworld for my plural system.

Original/Fandom: Fandom: The Neverending Story by Michael Ende/Original: Personal Narrative (Plurality)
Notes: This found poem, which is heavily inspired by The Neverending Story by Michael Ende and uses a lot of language from that book, is our plurality mission statement that we made after realizing that The Two Courts/Blackbirds/Hondas's In Essence Agreement didn't quite follow our system rules and wasn't the language we would use.
Summary: A mission statement for my plural system.

So, we've been reconfiguring our system website The Dreamers United System (still under construction).

And I'm starting to want to get out locally and actually meet other plural folk since there's actually a pretty significant contingent of us living in the city. (I know OF them, but i have yet to actually meet most of them. :/)

Also because we're thinking of doing CPS work and actually A LOT of our recovery story that isn't yet public but we want it to be, involves coming to terms with being plural but not necessarily completely dissociative or fitting the clinical model.

A while ago someone pointed us to JC Klatch's plurality info card which is the business card they use when they come out as being multiple and people go "What's that?"

And we made our own version (poor quality pdf scan) because we wanted it to echo our experience even though it was a good base to start with.

This is the transcription for OUR version of the card.

[FRONT OF CARD]
The Dreamers United: We Are Multiple!

[IMG - sequence of silhouettes: tribal dragon, a family holding hands: child facing profile toward right, father facing forward, mother facing forward, two more children facing forward, a father giving a child a shoulder ride facing forward, a cat standing up looking up and behind, a cat sitting looking down to the right, a cat facing backward with its head tipped toward the right]

[BACK OF CARD]
A multiple is more than one being living in a shared human body. Multiplicity is not always MPD/DID and not always caused by trauma. Our system is not disordered and we are not necessarily "alters". We prefer to be considered beings with our own thoughts, emotions, voices, beliefs, histories, opinions, disabilities, skills, gender identities, likes and dislikes. We are no different than any other group of beings, except that we share one body and have to take turns using it to interact with the outside world, which is called "fronting".

If you want to know who you are speaking to or our preferred pronouns, just ask!
