Riverside IowaAuthor’s Note: I actually visited Riverside, Iowa not too long ago, and my dad suggested I write this fan fiction. He knows I write fan fiction, but doesn’t know my pen name or if he does he pretends not to know it. If you’re reading this Dad, I love you!
Riverside, Iowa 2235
“James, stop poking Jim.” Mrs. Kirk scanned the second grader’s ID tag to document the misbehavior, and looked down at her handtop computer in horror. She knew that this day would come, but it had snuck up on her. She had tried not to think about it, actually. It brought up too many disappointments and bitter memories.
Ever since the early 2200s, the housing market in Riverside had seen a boom, Thousands of Kirk families moved into the relatively unpopulated town, more than doubling it in size. July 2227 had brought in truckloads of aphrodisiacs and enough gynecologists to start a university as all of the women tried to get pregnant. March 20, 2228 had brought in even more Kirk
The Ordinary“Did you hear? Leigh and Lysander are getting their new wheels today!” Rosalya told me cheerfully.
“No, what kind of wheels?” I asked.
Before Rosalya could answer, Amber pushed past me. “As if it would matter to you! I’m Leigh’s best customer, so obviously that means he’ll be giving me rides to school from now on.”
Rosalya blinked, confused. “Leigh can’t give anyone rides to school.”
Amber snorted. “What’s the point of getting a new car, then?”
“I never said they were getting a car. I said ‘wheels.’”
“They’re going to be delivered this afternoon. You’ll see.”
The school bell rang, so Amber just gave Rosalya a suspicious glare and walked away. I had no doubt that she would stop by Leigh’s shop to see what all the fuss was about. Amber prided herself on always being up-to-date on the latest fashions and gossip, so she visited
Multiple vs. MPD, DID, DDNOSRogan: Hey Sneak. We're multiple, right?
Rogan: So, does that mean we must have Multiple Personality Disorder, Dissociative Identity Disorder, or Dissociative Disorder Not Otherwise Specified?
Sneak: Nope! Not at all!
Rogan: Care to elucidate on that?
Sneak: Sure! First of all, we flunk the diagnostic criteria for MPD or DID.
Rogan: *claps hands to face* Gasp! How can that be?
Sneak: Easy. To have DID or MPD, you don't just rent out your mental real estate. People have to take over control of the body, and you have to have trouble remembering important things. We fulfill the first and second parts, but our memory problems are pretty much negligible
LB's Guide to Coming Out MultiThis is a guide for coming out to friends, family, and other folks as multiple. It is specifically meant for folks who do not have a support system in place yet, and are just coming out of the closet. We hope that this makes the process easier. These rules are loose, and there are exceptions to every one of them; use your judgment.
Before You Uncloset
1. Think of your reasons WHY you are uncloseting. Obviously, freaking out the easily-freaked-out can be entertaining, but it's not a good reason to go disclosing what can be diagnosed as a mental illness. Uncloset for a good reason: because you have to tell somebody, and you think they'll be able to support you. If your internal crew is in deadlock over even deciding whether to do it in the first place, try to find a way to come to a solid decision; the last thing you need is for an internal fight to ensue in the middle of what's already a stressful situation.
