A friend of mine directed me to this place some time ago. I've taken a mild hiatus but I'm back. Well, sort of.
Anyway, I'll get a start on this About Me section here:
Okay, this is an odd place to start, but it'll do. I'm a furry. It's probably not what you think. There are many levels of furry, but mine's pretty tame. I don't own and have never worn a fursuit. I've never been to a convention or, uh, yiffed with anyone. I am definitely
not into bestiality. (Most of us aren't.) In safe online spaces (and this isn't generally one of those places, so I'm taking a major risk here) I may present myself as my "fursona" which I'll get to in a sec. Yeah, I have a fursona. You could also call it a personal totem, or even a daemon if you want to get young adult fantasy on me. My totem reflects my personality.
That's what makes me a furry.
Oh, and my totem animal? The North American porcupine. Porcupines can be friendly animals, believe it or not. Like many other rodents they can be pretty tame. Not that I'd recommend trying to turn one into a pet. DON'T DO IT. They are pacifists, but they are very defensive
pacifists. Don't threaten a 'pine, and they won't threaten you. They are nocturnal critters (and hey, here I am up at 11:30 at night writing this), myopic and physically a bit slow, but more intelligent than people take them for. And, okay, they're kinda dumpy. What can you do? Not everyone can be a fox.
[This "About Me" section is a work in progress. Stay tuned?]
