The stormy little fox that haunts your computer
« on: February 18, 2012, 02:38:07 am »
I’ve been a member here at Furtopia since July 2006, (just a little over five and a half years now), I’ve never been the extremely talkative type, (a little socially awkward I guess), so it’s likely that many of you won’t be too familiar with me.
Nevertheless, I’ve always been here to some degree, even if I have been a bit of a ghost.
But I guess that’s fitting of me since I’m the type to not be seen, or heard… though lately I have been trying to change that.
Making an effort to be more socially active where I can, and in doing so, I find myself spending more time around here than I used to.

Which is good because I like spending time here, and since I’ve never been a member of any other forum besides this one, Furtopia is like my internet home.
Even during the years I was mostly inactive here, I still felt compelled to check in and read what was going on.
I don’t entirely know what it is about this place, there’s just something to it, something that brought me here, something that brought me back, (though I never truly left), and there’s something that keeps me here.
I can’t really say what it is, it’s just something, …something about the way this place runs, something about the way the people are, it’s actually quite difficult to explain.

Other sites and forums just seem to lack what this place has… the way things run, and the way people act, among other things.
Other places just bug me, but for whatever reason, that doesn’t really happen here, it’s nicer here, which is probably why the only forum that I’m an actual member of, is Furtopia.
It’s the only place I care to spend my time, and it‘s the only place that this little fox cares to haunt. :)

And now, after all of the time that I've spent here, and after all of the things that have been said and done, I get to be a Watcher here at Furtopia.
(*whispers* I've actually been one for almost three weeks now). ;)

And what that basically means is, that I’m part of the staff here, and I‘m part of the only little place on the internet that I care about.
And that I also now have an official title as the guy who gets to watch all you crazy furries doing all the crazy things that you do. (:

…Come to think of it, I’m not really sure how that differs from before… *eyes shift from side to side*

Anyways, now that I’m a part of the staff, I’m here to help look out for this place and it’s members.
Much as I have done silently in the past, and will now do more actively, presently and throughout the future. ;)

…I’m not entirely sure what else to say here, so… I guess if anyone has any questions, comments, or just has something to say to me, then by all means, feel free to say something. :)

…Now, about my paycheck. (: :) (: :)

Is it creepy or just helpful to have another fox looking over my shoulder? A gentle paw on my shoulder if I'm gonna step in something, rather than a fangs-bared mod attack for last week's post -- would be nice. Thanks, Storm.

Thank you Mylo. :)

Thanks Old Rabbit.


Happy mod birthday, Storm Fox! (: :) (: We're so glad to have you!

Thanks Arbutus.

And a story… well, I'll see what I can do here.


I didn’t actually become a “furry” per say until I was about 20, but I’ve always fell into that group that likes to say that they’ve been one before knowing what it’s called.
Growing up, I never had many friends in the traditional sense, so my friends were my parents cats, my dog, and so on, you get the idea.
When I was older, still a kid though, (10 or 11), I started drawing various animal characters, usually just nameless characters, both feral and anthro.
I also had the typical furry / pre furry interest with animation, (all the usual movies like Watership Down, Balto, Disney‘s Robin Hood, the Fox and the Hound, Lion king, etc.).

And things pretty much continued on in same manner until around 2004, when I came across a picture on Google…
I don’t remember what exactly I was looking for at the time, (probably drawings of foxes or something).
But one picture I came across, [This One], which was hosted on a different site at the time, struck my interest.
Thinking it may have been a character from someone’s comic or story, I proceeded to look for where it originated from.
But instead I found more drawings, and more artists as well, which also led to more websites and so on.
Eventually, by reading the information and stories on many websites, I came to understand this thing known as the furry fandom that I had simply seemed to stumble across.

I ended up reading through much of the history of the furry fandom which I pieced together from different sites.
I learned much of how the fandom came to be, and a lot about the drama and nonsense that accompanied it as well.
What with unfavorable press and even separatist movements and such, I was surprised to learn as much as I did about something that I had no idea existed in the first place.

I questioned a lot of the things I came across, maybe even with a cringe or two as well.
But luckily, I was diligent in my research, and was able to see through the nonsense and understand what the furry fandom is really about.
Finding that it is for the most part, a collection of those with common interests, (good valued interests no less), that of which are very much the same interests that I grew up with.
Whether that’s as a hobby involving cartoons, comics, games, cosplay, etc.
Or things that are far more deeper, like the beliefs of Therians, or Otherkins, which are often brought into the fandom by means of drawings, stories, and other associated similarities.

Whatever the reason things came to be, I found that I was in good company that is not really any different from what I’ve been for as long as I could remember.
And so, instead of having to change to fit in with some group, I had found the group that fits me.


I am Storm Fox, and I am a furry. :orfox:
