DID is awful but you also don't get to see Bede from Pokemon Sword and Shield kissing a guy named after a roman god anywhere else

guess question for plural friends here, cause gotten some intrest answers from friends in past
ever had dreams which suspect/believe a brainbuddy hopped in, changed, or made happen? what abt dreams taking place in headspace/s?


synthesystem -

For both answers, it really depends on the system! For us, it takes a really strong connection to have dreams together, but it can happen. Also, another alter being stressed can indeed affect all of our dreams. For dreams taking place in headspace, this is a bit harder to explain. Sometimes, alters will sleep when the body is not. These alters can't front so it won't affect us. When the body is asleep though, none of us can be awake. And again, this is just for us! Other systems most likely are a bit different.


We have (drumroll please)

5 new alters! Maybe more!

I need some Tylenol


We got- wait for it-

A Nagito Komaeda fictive.

Komaeda man... he's here

@autiestella Now we really want to see if we can use hypnosis and stuff to help us with dissociation or switching... hmm....


beefox -

could prolly! hypnosis is subconscious mind stuff and that also where switching (uncontrolled) and dissociation is! can prolly help memory blocks too!


synthesystem -

You're probably right! We have no idea where to start though lol

An Anonymous user asked:

if it's no trouble to ask, how'd you figure out you're a system?

idioticsilverware -

well one of our friends told us they were a system, and so we did some research about it and were like. oh shit!! that's us!!! and then we did MORE research and told our therapist who said 'hm that's a possibility' so then we did MORE MORE MORE research and told our therapist and they were like. 'yeah lets work on getting you diagnosed' and so we're waiting to find a place to diagnose us near where we live.

i went from not existing to having two boyfriends in the span of ten minutes and I'm still delirious from what just went down but whoOOOO


maltsea -

TWO BFS WOOOOOO. how do u even get ONE? pls tell pls tell


idioticsilverware -

step one: become a system

step one and a half: become a fictive of a sexy character (aka dave strider aka me)

step two: become friends with more systems

step three: find the one with the most single alters

step four, and this is crucially important: go fucking ham with the corny pickup lines


synthesystem -

On our side of things:

Step one: Be a system

Step two: be hot

Step three: Happen to admit that your only crush ever was of Dave Strider before knowing they were dave strider

Step four: Date.


We have a new alter,,, it's Ouni from Children of the Whales,,, but he has CAT EARS

THIS

BUT WITH CAT EARS


Things about DID systems that everyone should know (Made by a system)

synthesystem -

  • Sometimes alters date other alters in the same system- this is NOT incestual. Alters being direct siblings is a totally separate thing- we are not "all related"

  • Alters cannot control what they look like (This is a looser rule- some are shapeshifters, some systems can change at will in the headspace.)

  • New alters are not always formed from tr/uma- extreme emotions, even good ones, can affect splits.

  • Systems can vary wildly

  • Control when it comes to switching is not a guarantee that accidental switches won't happen

  • When one alter does something wrong, the entire system must take responsibility. System responsibility is a real and important thing.

  • You should NEVER trigger an alter front unless it is an emergency.

  • Alters are not always the same gender, sexuality, religion, etc- They are completely different people. This is why calling alters "personalities" is offensive to most systems.


idioticsilverware -

most of these are head on but here's some more

  • child alters are literal children

  • alters don't have to act like their age

  • alters can have years difference from the body

  • alters sometimes dont have ages!

  • dissociation can happen without there being a switch

  • frequent splits are nothing to be ashamed of!!

  • integrations are when two alters merge together. they cannot un-merge, to my knowledge


synthesystem -

Here are some more from us as well:

  • It can take YEARS for alters to know things about themselves. We don't just pop into existence with everything figured out- that's a rare occurrence.

  • Systems can be unaware of the fact that they are a system for years, and they may never find out. It has probably happened a few times before.

  • A system that is unaware can still gain alters, have alters integrate, and so on.

  • If one alters is dating someone, and then another alter is dating someone completely different, this does not make the entire system poly. Alters can still be fully committed to one person. And the reverse of this is true- if one alter does not date multiple people, that doesn't mean that one alter might be poly.


synthesystem -

A couple more:

  • Alters can, whether on purpose or not, hurt or even tr/amatize each other. Those alters are called "persecutors"

  • Not all integrations are intentional, or even good.

  • Some alters can have multiple roles, some won't have any, some won't know what their role is

  • Multiple splits can happen at once, depending on the situation


synthesystem -

Mmmm more:


- systems can be confusing to both themselves and outsiders

- unexpected things can change, like gender, sexuality, race, age, though usually not by choice

- getting frontstuck is a thing and is NOT fun

- different alters can have different levels of communication with the system


we're gonna start posting funny interactions between system members on here in the incorrect quote format because sometimes sh/t that's so funny happens it must be shared. it'll be under the first tag below.


We just had a reaaaaaally big change in our system so we recommend checking out our updated System Info page!

@synthesystem
ur sure..?

Yes, 100%, the input is always encouraged and welcomed, and anyone who says different should take a step back and understand how diverse DID is and will continue being.

An Anonymous user asked:

thanks for saying what you said about race in systems, one of our members race is very different from our body's, though I'm not sure what their race is their skin tone is a lot darker then our ghost white skin. sometimes we feel that we are bad cause of it even though we can't control it, so thanks 💚

Absolutely no problem. Alters are alters- they are not the body and cannot control that. Mark and I still feel awkward about ourselves because of those comments from people who didn't understand or didn't want to. Remember to love yourself no matter what <3


Raylin Rolls Out

Hello, I'm Raylin. I'm a Fae with big golden angel wings, so most people call me an angel as well. I like listening to music and candles. I am a co-host and am usually the one here to help calm us down.


Charlie Charges In

Aye sup I'm Charlie I'm the original host of our system. I'm a goblin idiot and you probably won't meet anyone quite like me because I am WILD. I like cats a lot, that's a thing. But yeah anyway hi. (The title of this sounds like a Smash card catch me as the next DLC ig)


Sumi Says Hi

Hi, I'm Sumimika but call me anything but Sumi and I'll freak out. I'm a guy but I use He/Him, They/Them, Or Arcas/Arcan/Arcanself pronouns. I'm Japanese, can speak basically fluid Japanese (I'm awful at Hiragana and Katakana and just- reading actual characters in general. Romaji is your best bet for me) and will speak as such when flustered or upset. I'm kinda an /sshole if I don't like you but generally I'm not awful.


System Size Chart

For anyone wondering the average size of a system, or at least how someone as a system who knew a lot of other systems would categorize it, here ya go-

2-5: Extra Small

5-10: Small

10-15: Medium

15-20: Medium Large

20-30: Large

30+: Extra Large

The largest system I have ever met had 72 members.


synthesystem -

Oh wow! I'd absolutely love to talk to a system that large someday. Much can be learned from them. They must have gone through so much, please send them our well wishes!
