NOTE: This and every character intro for My Impossible Soulmate will be based on the character's first appearance. ^_^

Last character intro I'll be sharing before MIS starts. Of course there are other characters (I'll add more as needed as we go after this), but these past twelve I've shown are kinda the central cast I wanted to highlight as we'll be seeing them a lot.

Actually, have we seen Nara before? Odd. ;P

Anyway, I'm hoping to begin My Impossible Soulmate this Fall. Expect a more concrete update on that within the next couple weeks.

Why is this character so relatable?

Come to think of it, I don't think I've seen an omnisexual character in media before; this is nice! Also, I wonder whether green (and various other colours) are natural hair colours for humans of this world, or whether Nara dyes hers. And of course I'm curious about the fact that we might've seen her before? But I'll leave that one to those with a memory more photographic than mine to try and uncover

How exactly does 'omnisexual' compare with 'pansexual'? I understand the connotation it feels like it has to me, but I'm guessing that connotation is not really intended to be there.

@Some Ed

I think this is the most succinct way to put it.

"Many people use the terms pansexual and omnisexual interchangeably. While they are closely related, there are differences between the two. Those who identify as pansexual feel attraction to people without noticing their gender, while omnisexual people recognize the gender of potential partners."
Chacha 30th Sep 2022, 1:44 PM edit delete reply
So would that mean that pansexual people are attracted to people's minds, not their bodies? Like, "Yeah, boobs/shoulders/whatever are nice and all, but the important thing is that they're attached to *you*"? If so, how is pansexuality different than demisexuality? Just speed of attraction?

Or is it more like, a pansexual person might well enjoy a good pair of boobs on their own merits, but is completely indifferent as to the gender of their owner. Whereas an omnisexual person might like boobs *on women*, while also liking broad shoulders *on men* and androgyny *on non-binary people*? (Just using those as examples.)

Asking in good faith! I'm genuinely curious. I'm ace, so attraction is all a bit mysterious to me.

i keep debating whether im omni or pan so the way ive seen it the difference is whether you have a conscious gender preference. like......... for me im attracted to every gender, but i perceive a stronger attraction to men (whether cis, trans, or masculine performing) than to others.

everything is a bit flux with me when it comes to attractions but for right now at least i can say this for myself: the particular body parts are still irrelevant unless im in a "you know what i havent had/seen in a while...." but who they belong to does kinda matter

i think it's more like how bi can mean all, while pan explicitly means all. pan can have gender play a role in attraction (like having a preference or feeling attraction differently towards people of different genders) and omni explicitly does.

Yea but I've never been a fan of Bi also meaning all, because what if someone introduces themselves as bi, but you assume they are into anyone regardless of gender, and try and set them up with someone they aren't attracted to or if you (general sense "you"), were to try and ask em out. And I know people can just be not into someone, but I more so mean they lack any attraction to your gender identity. That's just my 2 cents on the matter, please understand.

I think if somebody is attracted to both broad body types, they are by definition attracted to all genders, since it's impossible to tell someone's gender just by looking at them.

Gender presentation complicates this, of course. A lesbian who is attracted to a trans man pre-transition is not any less of a lesbian, after all. But that same lesbian is probably attracted to some non-binary people, whether she knows it or not. She's not a mind-reader. She just responds to a certain set of visual cues.

So a bi transmedicalist might refuse to date non-binary people, but they are almost certainly attracted to some of them.

Okay but what about the case of biromantic where body type isn't a big factor?
Bellhopper 10th Oct 2022, 7:45 AM edit delete reply
Let's say a bisexual aromantic transmedicalist develops a crush on a particular person in their class. They like the way this person laughs; they like how they help other people with their homework; they like how when they eat lunch together, their attention seems to always be 100% on them. Unbeknownst to them, this person identifies as agender, and simply hasn't told anyone. This biromantic transmedicalist is attracted to someone who is neither a girl nor a boy. Maybe learning their crush's gender may prompt them to rethink some things; maybe not. Either way, the crush was real.

It's not like personality really has anything to do with gender, anyway.

Fundamentally, "gender" as people are attracted to it and "gender" as people experience it are two different things. A person's own felt sense of their gender is not something that can be perceived by others.

I’ll be honest; I thought she was a dryad because of her green hair.

Is the fact that pages exist relevant? Or that just something you can expect in fantasy worlds?

This might just be the first Omnisexual person I've seen in media so far. So excited to see her!! I know that you'll do a great job representing our small Omni community Jocelyn!

I just wanted to say, Thank You.

I spent the first 31 years of my life questioning, and it was only a month ago when I finally worked up the courage to bring it up to a friend of mine. Opening up to talk about it, actually allowing myself to finally consider it, ended up shattering my egg all at once into a billion tiny pieces. I am so sure of myself, all of a sudden, and yet it's a huge torrent of emotions to work through.

Finding your webcomic and speeding through 11 years worth of storytelling over the last couple days has been super helpful. It's helped work through some small doubts, and helped identify feelings about this that I didn't yet know I had.

I'm fortunate enough to have not yet personally run into any phobia, so I also can't thank you enough for including doses of reality into the story, even if I'm still a bit raw about Rain's hair.

I could go on, but I don't know the character limits of these comments, and it's probably best not to rant about it.

You said in the FAQ that this is the story that you needed to read when you were a kid. I think it was the story that I needed to read today. I hope it reaches many more people of all ages, because I know it helped me.
