median-system

We’re a newly identified median system consisting of a fictive (XME Pietro) and an interject that we don’t know all that much about.  We’re looking for other systems (either multiples or medians) to chat with, so like or reblog this, and we’ll check you out!

We’re obviously alright with other fictives (preferably Marvel or XME, but all are welcome), as well as others who are figuring things out on their own.  We are accepting of all genders, sexual orientations, romantic orientations, and so on.

What're the differences between a multiple system, median system, & mixed system put into your own words? How do we know which is which? We know it's in the glossary/FAQ but we have bad comprehension issues & require it simplified ;-; thank you!!!

multiple systems generally feel as though each system member is a completely separate person.

median systems usually feel that there is a core around which the facets/system members are based. so essentially each system member is a “part” of that core identity, although they can have different interests/personalities. 

mixed systems are, essentially, a mix of both these (and/or other) system types. one could be a median system where most system members identify as facets, and then have a member who identifies as completely separate from the “core identity”. 

again, there can be exceptions to all these things, but hopefully this gives the gist of their meanings.

What Are Facets?

Hi! I realized today that I’ve never seen a post concisely explaining just what a facet is/how they’re different from alters. 

I don’t have DID/am not a multiple system, so I’m not suuuper qualified to talk about alters, but essentially they’re what many people consider “multiple personalities” although this term is offensive to many and should not be used. I have friends who have them, and it basically just means you have two or more people living in the same body (often called the vessel). The main/core person is often called the host. Sometimes alters come out when the host is stressed or anxious. Alters can form either naturally or as a result of trauma (or other reasons too, I’m sure). 

Facets are sometimes considered a more minor variety of alters. While alters are entirely separate people with their own thoughts and memories, facets are more like distinct personalities within the same person. For some people they can be created on purpose and can be switched between voluntarily. The way I tend to explain my experience with facets is that it’s like my personality is fragmented, and different aspects of it come out at different times, but they’re still connected, I’m still aware that I’m the same person when different facets are active, and I don’t experience memory loss like some (but not all) people with alters do. People with alters often call themselves multiple systems, while people with facets often call themselves median systems. Facets can exist for a lot of reasons— like alters, they are often a result of trauma, but not always— and seem to be pretty common in people with BPD. 

Some people don’t bother differing between their facets, even if they’re aware of them switching, and some consider their facets completely separate people. Many peoples’ facets have their own names and pronoun sets. Any way your facets manifest and any way you choose to handle them is completely valid and okay!

PSA

Okay, so a note on Singlet vs. Median vs. Multiple. The simplest explanation I have is (and please note that even this is pretty generalizing and probably doesn’t apply to all):

  • singlet = 1 body, 1 mind, 1 entity
  • median = 1 body, 1 mind, 2+ enitities
  • multiple = 1 body, 2+ minds, 2+ entities

I say “entity” because some medians may not consider themselves different people. And that’s okay! “Median” just means between singlet and multiple.

Some medians consider themselves “parts” that function as a single person. They may have their own names for the sake of organization, but that doesn’t change how they think of themselves. They’re still median, but they may be closer to singlet (if they choose to descibe themselves that way).

Other medians consider themselves different people but think they are too closely linked to call themselves multiple. They can have their own names/pronouns/appearances/etc. They’re also median, but they may be closer to multiple (if they choose to descibe themselves that way).

And other medians can be any mixture of the two examples! Maybe they’re “the same person” but have their own identities, or maybe they’re different versions of “the same person” and consider themselves different people. That’s all fine!

What isn’t fine? Telling medians what they can or cannot be based solely on your own experiences.

Thank you, this has been a PSA.

Do you have any tips for figuring out if you're the original or not? I'm the host of my system (median, I think), and even before I started getting headmates, at one point I realized so much about younger years of my life are super vague to me and at one point years ago I realized I don't seem anything like I used to be, and I think I might not be the original, but I'm not sure?

this is a tough thing to figure out, and we don’t have a lot of advice, however we received a similar question a while back, and one of the followers had this input. hopefully this is helpful!

Semiplural personal pronouns for median and multiple systems

re: this post

wit thought of a personal pronoun set for people who aren’t quite singular and aren’t quite multiple! (this is mostly for median systems but if a multiple system felt it applied to them too that would be okay. no singlets allowed tho)

Wit propose it be called semiplural

Additional info:

  • because it would be too much work to come up with semiplural forms of all verbs, semiplural personal pronouns go along with plural verbs, e.g. “Wit love ireseld.” 
  • the “-seld” ending of the reflexives is because self is singular, and selves is plural, so it seemed like having a semiplural form would be a good idea.
  • “wit” and “hio” are both contracted like “we” and “they”, e.g. wit will is wit’ll, pronounced like wittle; wit are is wit’re, pronounced like witter
  • here is an audio clip of iss pronouncing them all
  • if you have any other questions message iss!

here we Go oh boy!! hi my dash has been kinda slow and i would like to make some new mutuals/friends >:3c 

ffeel free to like/reblog if you post

  • homestuck
  • animal pics, esp bunnies and cats
  • steven universe
  • water and sky aesthetic-y stuff
  • brainweird things
  • general sj i guess

also if u are

  • trans 
  • not straight
  • neurodivergent
  • otherkin/fickin
  • divine
  • not a singlet

and i will check out ur blog!!! if you would like to follow me please check my links first and mutuals if u could signalboost this that would rock! :D

ok so this is actually pretty fun

just out of curiosity one of our system members decided we should record our voices to see if we sound super different, but I thought to share the idea cause it’s really interesting! :oo

here’s our page as an example (oh god, the embarrassment…)

basically each of you says your:

-name

-birthday

-star sign

-age

(if you have them…if not that, any other basic info like a favorite color)

and then when you’ve all done that, you can compare voices!

if you do this, please like or reblog this! (or reblog even if you aren’t doing it so other systems can try it!)

chances on I’ll follow

I don’t mind if we share kintypes, but I would like to let you know I’m over 18 so if that’s uncomf for you, please don’t reblog. Here are my kintypes and my about

Go wild kids

So I asked for info an this before and read a but more about it and I may be a median. Not exactly sure though so could those who are could help me out here. I’ve kinda felt like their was something else but ignored it and thought it was just me trying to be edgy. This thing has feelings of it’s own but is a bit connected to mine. It kinda acts like a back seat driver tbh. I think it came about when I was younger as a way to deal with the bulling I often experienced and its just been in silence for the most part since. If this sounds like a median can you tell me and if you want to know more just ask me. If this sounds like something else could you point me in that direction as well.

okay, figuring this out will be easier if we have people to talk to and have around, so…

if you’re a median or multiple system like or reblog this post & i’ll check out your blog and probably follow! the follow will come from my main/aes blog moecangacha.

you’re also free to follow me here, though be careful if you go through my blog because theres some triggering stuff in it. (i tag everything but just in case!)
