Experssing my furny side
« on: March 31, 2015, 10:31:28 pm »
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

(Translation: I've been wanting to express my affection for my current furnsona in my ever day life lately, but I'm unsure how. I tried sticking cogs to my face earlier, but I got some odd looks while I was out shopping. Does anyone have any tips for more subtle ways to go about it? How do you present your dedication to the furny fandom in your everyday lives?)

Have you heard of the uncanny valley? 



The idea of the uncanny valley centers on the observation that mundane humans tend to be rather discomforted when faced with something that is merely nearly the object that the said furny is trying to imitate.

So my advice to be more subtle is to actually add more cogs to your face.  That way, people will be less likely to mistake you for a human, and in fact you will resemble a clock that much more.

I would like to disagree with this diagram because Stephen Colbert > Joseph Gordon... XD

Perhaps you could get into the habit of steadily ticking under your breath. Constantly. Nothing too loud, of course. Just enough so that the people nearby start to wonder where that ticking is coming from.

If you practice enough, I'm sure it would become a habit that you'd just do naturally. Though I advise stopping if you're at an airport.

"Click, clack, click, clack, click, clack, click, clack, click, clack, tickticktick, DING DONG DING DONG!"

English:

As a fellow timepiece I understand where you're coming from.

I myself have found that marking each hour by singing in various dings and dongs is a great way to bring my furnyness into my everyday life, although unless you are a chiming pocketwatch, that might not be canon to you. ^_^
