My original attraction to ATS was strange conspiracy theories, such as UFO, cult, mythological creatures, etc.
As I have grown older, I have became more interested in political conspiracies
However, I stumbled upon this video which I found very intriguing. Partly because I enjoyed the video game Final fantasy 7, and partly because I do
have an interests in cults and their behavior.
SO in a nut shell, here is the story.
A guy in college back in the early 2000's makes a fan page for two characters from the game Final fantasy 7 (a role playing game with swords and
magic etc. for the playstation one)
He gets contacted by a woman running a fan site for one of the bad characters in the game, and talks to her partnner (via the [hone I think)
Anyway, this woman starts to ask him questions, such as to you believe people could have been others in past lives, do you bleive their could be other
timelines or worlds, and do you believe that video games could be real in some of those worlds, and people could have been these characters in a past
The guys like sure I guess its possible.
Now just shortening this up, basically he meets with the ladies as they tell him they believe he has a "soulbond" with the minor character Zack from
He agrees to move in with them for a summer, only to find out they basically are running a cult and he is gradually sucked in, where these women
believe they are the characters from the game they have soulbonded with, and that they are basically otherkin.
The situation involves other characters being brought in, violence, attempts at forcing people to have sex based on their characters in the game,
people being fleeced of money, and other potential crimes.
The story is quite fascinating.
It gets even weirder as it goes on to explain years later a similar situation happening across the country with a soulbonding cult from a different
videogame, and it turns out the woman leading that may have been one of the characters from the Final fantasy house (as its came to be known).
Now at this point, I dont know if this is an elaborate hoax (it would have to be very elaborate, as it involves multiple websites and people and spans
over a decade), is embellished, or if it is indeed an accurate depiction of what happened.
Upon looking further, I have found that the original woman in charge of the cult us now being accused of having changed her name, and having a cult
based on the tv show Hannibal about hannibal lecter from silence of the lambs.
In fact there is a whole website and youtube channel dedicated to detailing her supposed crimes in that endeavor.
In addition, upon reading comments, many people are saying that this is acually a common problem in the otherkin community, that because people are
willing to believe they are spirits of other worldy on nonhuman entities, they are commonly susceptible to cult like leadders that use thiss to their
I have no idea if this is true or not, but its a fascinating story, and I figured maybe people interested in cults and the like would have more to add
I guess if you are serious enough about the game that you think you are spiritually bonded with one of its characters, you're willing to entertain the
notion of putting just about anything on the chopping block, including sex.
Thanks for the intriguing story. Sorry to post and run. I'm going to come back for the video later.
Totally up my ally so will be looking into it a bit more and watching the video tomorrow. Is late, need to sleep and work in the morning. Until then,
I can't help but wondering about the sad furry that bought in to being soulbound to Cait-Sith. That and how has the lady supposedly behind all that
not been locked up already? How many cults does it take to get to the center of the multiverse? Good and weird find.
