Your favorite things about furries and being furry
« on: November 01, 2011, 08:51:59 pm »
Storm Fox's "Things in the furry fandom that drive you crazy." thread inspired me.

So, basically - what are your favorite things about being furry and/or what are you favorite things about the furry fandom?

Dang. This could take a while...

Well, for starters, they're the nicest bunch of folks you'll ever meet.
"The coyote is a living, breathing allegory of Want. He is always hungry. He is always poor, out of luck, and friendless. The meanest creatures despise him. And even the fleas would dessert him for a velocipide."~Mark Twain

The overall creative atmosphere and fun, I'd have to say.

After decades of wishing that I had more talking animal stories to read, I finally know where to find them.
Is there really a cat paradise?  Find out in Otters In Space.

Spies!  Jet packs!  And a water-phobic feline surrounded by otters!  IN SPACE!  Experience it all in Otters In Space 2: Jupiter, Deadly

The uncontrollable smile one gets when you go downtown to pick up your sister at the bus station, only to see a bunch of people all over the place in fursuits giving out free hugs.

The lack of creative boundaries. Have an idea, just go with it, we move between the boundaries, breaking them down. You see a boundary, you eat it and wash it down with a cold glass of milk.
Thant and the fluffiness. Fluffiness is good  :)

The furry artist community,
As nowhere else can anyone find a more creative and unique group of writers, painters, musicians, etc. :orfox: :orhorse: :ordragon: :orraccoon: :orbunny:

Furry fandom is a place where I can refer to myself as a dog or talk about playing with toy dogs and not get odd looks. Furries are a creative bunch of people who are interested in the same types of things I am. I can be myself. It's a place where movies like Balto are considered cinema classics ( I'd rather watch Balto than Avatar anyday ).  It's a place that recognizes that things like toys and cartoons are awesome. Furry Fandom may have it's flaws but it's a hell of a fun thing to be a part of.
You humans need to refine, alter, corral codify and measure things yes? Very well. I shall use your wristwatch to count out ten of your seconds. I suggest you use that time to run. For at the end of it I shall come for you and I will catch you and we shall measure the duration of your death... In screams.

I like furry in RPGs, if done right, it can add so much more to any adventure or character.

Probably RPing, artistry, and chatting with other furries

Where does this happen! I want in!

but RPs, chatting, and the overall sheer awesomeness of the fandom is what gets me! :)
The brain is capable of amazing things. If we could unlock its full power, magic would truly exist.

And it does get so much better!

I like it because no one person created it. Its made up of everyone`s imagination, and they`re most likely the nicest people ill ever meet
Never give in be yourself, never give into what people say. If you do you'll be nothing but a pawn in the game of society. If someone isn't like you, don't hate, just be happy for them, no matter what.

Peace can only be obtained by the people of the world wanting it and all wanting it the same way. Not one wanting it one way and the other wanting another way. We all have to view peace the same.

Being in the most amazing, fun, and understanding group of people in da world! It makes me want to live the best lifestyle ever! It's based on imagination and encourages self expression and to be yourself not carring what other people say. Haters gonna hate!
Come find me! More to come!

I've been furry online since September, and here are some of my favorite things:


1. Art. My favorite I've run into so far has got to be TaniDaReal's stuff.

2. Chat. I spend a little too much time in chat, but it's worth it whether a bunch of light-hearted RP'ing goes on, or I just get to see how some fur's day went.

3. Fursuits. I haven't been around one in person, but watching animated fursuiters on Youtube always makes me smile.

The friends I have made, will make in the future. 8) Being able to be myself, and my other self :D Cons, fur meets, the drawn art, and the interactive art are wonderful as well.

The artwork and understanding of each other.
Every furry is amazing and nice! I've never met a mean spirited furry!
Plus, we're all awesome and here to support each other!  :D
