I think you just quoted a line from one of the LotR films, but I can't remember which film. I know the line was said by Gandalf though.  :D

Welcome to the team Iara.

Now go and watch all those who need watching.
But watch out for those who are watching out for watchers too.
So be sure to watch them discreetly, otherwise you could become a watched Watcher.
And that will only make watching those who need watching more difficult, so be sure to watch out for that. (:

Always glad to be of service!  I also have dice, shatter, liquefy, puree, and decimate settings, if any of those would interest you.

It's been 10 years since I made that intro post and was a part of the Watcher group here on Furtopia?!  :o

Well, as Bob Dylan sang, "The times, the times they are a-changing..."

I'm sad to say that I'm taking a hiatus from the furry fandom for a while.  :'(

I've sold the fursuit I bought last year--Prism, a colorful cat, who now belongs to a loving furry family--and I've been weighing my options with staying in furry the past few years. I've been in therapy for a while now, and since that time, I've come to recognize that a lot of the local furs I was friends with--and some in the furry community writ large that I've met--weren't exactly the best for my mental health.  :'(

You all were a bright spot in furry fandom and I really hope the server still lives while I am away.

Thank you all for being there for me over the years I was here. Your advice, warmth, and silly kindness meant the world to me.

If you want to continue to follow my art and stories, you can check me out on DeviantART as ChocolateStarfire, Twitter as @Warriorfeather and Instagram as @bambiraptor_feinbergi. My book, Iara's Crossing, is available through my new website, http://dinohunt9.wixsite.com/dianapomeroy

Thank you, and I hope whoever Watches this forum in my stead does their best to keep both eyes on it as often as they can! :)

~Iara  :)

If you read this...

Oh Iara,
I want you to do what is right for you!
I will miss you here!  I still love your drawing Raptor in Red based on the book "Raptor Red" which you recommended.  Your art is framed here above my computer.

Furry for me is just a playful way of living from time to time.  But I recognize, that some furs are outright mentally off.  So I think I know what you mean.
The company one keeps plays a large role in how they are themselves.

Please be well.

Also I guess I missed the fact you had a fursuit.  Are you able to post Prisim here?
(I am curious)

Bear your soul and take control
If the wolves are howling outside your door
Invite them in and make them beg for more!

Thank you for replying, Jade, and for your well wishes.

What was once my fursuit (images from my Instagram):

Stepping away for a bit will help me feel better. Thank you again.
