Vacillant Therianthropy (Vacillant Therianthrope or Vacillant Therian) was a community coined term in 2004 or 2005.[1] Vacillate means to alternate or waver. This describes a level of integration when shifts occur more smoothly, as if on a sliding scale. Refers to a Therian whose animalside and humanside are integrated such that one or the other may still come to the front of the mind noticeably stronger than the other, as needed or as desired.[2] Shifts seem to happen gradually and tend to follow a more consistent pattern. Though unexpected stimuli may trigger sharper or more sudden shifts.
