- Search Target: All active sites/forums/etc that are part of the otherkin community
- Search Results: http://houseofchimeras.livejournal.com/
- Information source used: blekko.com
- Search strategy employed: "phantom wings" "phantom limbs"
- Evaluation of material: Interesting personal blog. Also pointed me to http://withintheruins.webs.com/
- Paraphrased ideas or direct quotes: Not applicable, at the moment.
- What have I learned?: Phantom wings is a fairly good search term for finding sites about otherkin. It requires the addition of additional terms, however, to restrict it to just applicable results. Otherwise you get a lot of strange, irrelevant references.
- Ideas for next search: Are there other terms that are fairly specific to the otherkin community? I've used "Awakening" before, but I haven't found much with that. Perhaps pairing "phantom limbs" or "phantom wings" and "awakening" might get more results? "True Form" also might work, coupled with any of these terms. Still trying to think of others, I've been using these terms so long that they don't stick out in my mind anymore. Perhaps Orion's jargon file would be helpful.
