Well, hey there
« on: March 19, 2017, 11:19:08 pm »
Hello, denizens of Furtopia, my name is Dwyn.

It's been ages since I was on such an old-school forum, and I feel like I have vague memories of this place, but I thought it might be fun to come along and participate in the community.

I've been a furry for years, basically since I understood what a furry was and I've been drawing and writing anthropomorphic themes since I could draw and write. Anyhow, nice to meet you all!

Thanks for the warm welcome, everybody.

To answer some of the questions that Varg posed in his standard mod message:

I don't remember exactly how I found this forum, but it was probably a Google search for 'furry forum,' or something similar.
I've known about the fandom since at least 2009.

I don't have any real set fursona, at least not at the moment. I tend to make a large amount of characters and cycle through a handful to which I feel closest, as I work on their stories and worlds. I'm sure sometime I'll find an appropriate moment and place to detail some of those, but that could probably be a topic all on its own knowing how many there can be, hahahah.

I suppose that what interests me the most about anthropomorphic characters, and the community at large, are how well I seem to be able to relate to silly cartoon animals. When I write, it's easier to identify with, and empathize for characters that are anthropomorphic for me, perhaps because it's easier to insert myself into their shoes.

Anyhow, I should probably keep this post short as it is. It's lovely to meet everyone, again, and I'm sure it'll be pleasant to meet others as I peruse and post among the forums.
