    Heya

    So after lurking around sans account on the site for almost a year and a week or so of just sitting on this account, I figure I oughta introduce myself. You guys can call me Vixix (both soft i's), if you wanna call me. I'm a practicing Chaos (or however the kids are spelling it these days) Magician. I dabble in most European faiths and a few aboriginal American beliefs. I struggle (is that the right word?) with Atheism off and on. Lovecraft's quote - as much as I hate to quote Lovecraft anymore with his association with some of the special dark snowflakes 'round 'bout the internet - from his poem Fact and Fancy hits home pretty hard for me, "How dull the wretch, whose philosophic mind, Disdains the pleasures of fantastic kind;" I identify a lot with the struggles he had in his life between rationally disbelieving the fantastical and feeling an emotional draw to it.

    I'm gonna stop before I start getting rambly. Really, you learn about people by spending time with them, and I hope to stick around here for a while and to get to know everyone and let everyone get to know me.

    For the Yule was upon them, the Yule; and they quaffed from the skulls of the slain,
    And shouted loud oaths in hoarse wit, and long quaffing swore laughing again.

    Welcome to the forum. I think I know what you mean - it's disconcerting to be thinking "this isn't real" while still feeling an almost obsessive draw to it. Are you into Phil Hine's writings?
