Like others, I'm not sure I'd use that phrasing myself.  I'm not property.  Wink  I think what you're essentially getting at, though, is the whole "Patron deity" concept, so I'll try to answer from that perspective.

That teaches me not to post so late at night. Patronage is definitely a better word and one I should've used. At the time of the posting I just finished reading a thread about someone "belonging to" Morrigan so that was my jumping off point.

This entire thread has been enlightening.. I'm excited to read more of course. I plan to read the articles tonight when I can hunker down and concentrate on them.
Being raised Catholic I understood patronage of a saint because I, myself, was drawn to one (still am) and from reading all of this.. I can tell there is no big difference in the way it happened, the reverence, and the acceptance. I just felt a little left out and a bit lonely that I hadn't "heard" anyone calling to me. It just felt like I was sending out the signals but no one was returning my calls. Smiley
