Hello, my name is Korvosa. I am one of the Co-Hosts here at the Dustybrook
Railway station, and we're new to Dreamwidth, but not the multiple community. 
We're a large D.I.D. (Dissociative Identity Disorder) System consisting of roughly
thirty-five members. Many of us are nonhuman and/or fictives or factives. We'd
love to do our best to raise awareness about Dissociative Identity Disorder, keep
a journal of our daily actions as a multiple system, and keep up communication
with other systems here on Dreamwidth. Below we've included some frequently
asked questions about the system and its residents. If you have any additional
questions or inquiries we'd love to hear them. 
Yours, 
Korvosa Thurman

Q: HOW MANY OF YOU ARE THERE?
I believe 39 was our last proper counted number.

Q: WHAT IS DID?
DID, or dissociative identity disorder (known as multiple personality disorder
until 1994) is the presence of more than one person in a single body, often
characterized by time loss and dissociation. 

Q: WHY DID YOU SPLIT?

We're a trauma-based system, meaning trauma in our childhood resulted in
the core creating more personalities to defend itself. Some systems are
'natural' and do not split because of trauma but we can't exactly speak with
any certainty about those kind of systems because we know very little about
them and can't speak from experience.

Q: HOW DO THE ALTERS GET THEIR NAMES?
This is a hella good question that no one's actually asked us so we're putting 
it here anyway. It happens a number of ways; in the case of fictives and factives,
they already have the name of course, but some alters come pre-loaded with
names while others happen to be named by friends, our partner system, the host,
or they might chose a name themselves. It very much depends on the individual
alter's preferences and circumstances.

Q: WHO IS YOUR HOST? HOW OLD IS HE OR SHE? IS THE BODY MALE OR
FEMALE?
We have three co-hosts. The one who's got the body's name and such is Tom,
who is sixteen, and male. The body is DFAB, but presents as male. The other 
two co-hosts are myself (Korvosa) and Emily. 

Q: ARE YOU CO-CON? DO YOU HAVE A HEADSPACE?
We have a large headspace and can communicate on the inside. Our level of
co-consciousness and communication varies from situation to situation.

Q: DO YOU HAVE SCHIZOPHRENIA?
Schizophrenia and DID are unrelated diagnoses. While we may have schizotypal
leanings, we have no official schizophrenic or schizotypal diagnosis. DID and
schizophrenia are not the same thing

Q: DO YOU HAVE ANY NONHUMANS, FICTIONKIN, OR FACTIVES?
 
This system has one poltergeist, various spirits and shapeshifters, a witch, five
angels, and three robots, as well as multiple fictives and factives.

Q: CAN I TALK TO _____?
Maybe. Depends on how close to front they are and how easy it is to get them.

Please direct all questions you may have to us. Or to our tumblr, lookatthemtheygetablog.tumblr.com/ask
