Hello ^^ I’m new and felt it proper to introduce myself.  I’m fairly new to the furry community (but not the actual fandom; I suppose you could call me a ‘closet fur’). I’ve known of it for several years, yet have waited until now to attempt to become a part of it. I came across this board in a websearch, and have lurked off and on for quite a bit now. Finally decided I should push my introverted shyness aside and say ‘hello’.

Well, to say a bit about myself (which is what I think I’m supposed to do…I’m really not sure, so I will just in case...) my name is Dreamer—not my birth-name obviously, but it’s used enough to be—and I’m just a boring ol’ Coyote-Wolf. I’m 16, avid lover of history (especially anything European ante-renaissance), and both a poet and practicing artist. My writing tends to better then my art, but I wouldn’t call either wonderful, personally. I love music (favorite bands being ‘Cruxshadows’, ‘Nevermore’, ‘Switchblade Symphony’, and ‘Sentenced’) and reading, tending towards fantasy and informative books. I have some interest in parapsychology and paranormal phenomena, mythology, theology, philosophy, criminology, and forensic sciences and spend much of my free-time reading up on and studying the subjects. I also really enjoy video games, survival horror mainly, but am horrible at playing them (in the past 6 years, I’ve only beaten two games).

And that’s me, somewhat uninteresting I suppose, I hope I didn’t write too much (or too little, or do this wrong or anything.)

Welcome to the forum Dreamer, I am quite positive you will enjoy yourself here as much as I have. There is no need to be timid, everyone here is rather friendly, so when you get settled in, and if you are confortable enough, I'm sure everyone here would enjoy to see some of your work!

Heya, Dreamer.
Welcome to the furtopia.org forums.
I'm sure you'll have a good time, seeing as you seem to get drawn back here every so often. Perhaps you crave the sheer furtopianess of this place.... err... or whatever.
Anyways...
Have yourself a good time. I hope to see you visit every so often. '<img'>

Hello Dreamer,

I was a closet fur for several years myself and basically decided to use getting involved in the fandom as a way to push my boundries and work through my introverted tendencies.

This is a very friendly place as I'm sure you have seen.

Welcome to our forums, Dreamer. Glad to see another lurker showing themself. The gang here loves having new furolks to chat and toss ideas back and forth with.

I don't think you said too much. I think you did just fine. '<img'>

I'm Kada-Ru and mated to WhiteShepherd. Together we created Furtopia for furolks to meet and mingle. I hope you enjoy your 'outing' here!

I looked at your Deviant Art webpage. I'm not really sure what I am looking at when I look at the DA webpages. I think I saw YOUR artwork.  '<img'>

If you are looking for other exposure for your works check out the other great things that Furtopia has to offer: artwork, stories and poetry, and of course our music webpages.

If you are interested just fill out the webpage application.  '<img'>

You may also apply for your own forum where you can post new updates to your website etc. Get feedback from others here.

You can never have enough exposure to new viewers!

You are quite welcome, Dreamer.

I have found that a lot of furolks that find the forums don't know about the many other opportunities that Furtopia has to offer. That is why I try to let everyone new know. Just in case.  '<img'>

Midnight, you sound suprised there are so many in VA?

I've seen that sort of reaction a lot.
I was once talking to somefur who thought he was the only fur in the bay area (San Francisco) of California. I showed him the BAF e-mail list and he was quite shocked... and thankful as well. This was back when that region indisputably had the largest organised group of furs in the fandom. These days, the fandom's far more thickly distributed across the continent... and the world in general. '<img'>

Hello and welcome!

I am also a writer!  Nice to see another one has stepped from the shadows and joined the ranks of active members.  And, no worries, I also waited and watched from the sidelines a while before joining and posting.

Enjoy your stay and don't be shy!
