Is there any species you would like to be...
« on: April 15, 2005, 08:34:19 pm »
*nods*

There is someone I would like to adapt as my fursona at some point, but simply choose not too. I have a gryphon character, one that I have an intense amount of pride in, but strangely, if I were ever to adopt as my online personality... put simply, it's something that I just don't feel I'm ready to do. I just don't feel like I embody the characteristics of said species well enough IRL (if I go by mythology, extremely strong in body, mind and soul) to pledge myself to it. Yet.

*shrug* Call me crazy for withholding a fursona change from myself just because I don't feel that I'm worthy of it, but that's the way I work. Anyone else ever had similar experiences (namely for those who have/had multiple characters)?

I have a lizard character (a monitor lizard/gecko mix) that I like a lot. I love lizards and reptiles, but I feel that I'm just not like a lizard enough to adopt one as my fursona.
this signature is no longer 37 characters long. thanks to Hxp for the avy <!--emo&:D--><img src="http://cgi.furtopia.org/ib311/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'><!--endemo-->

I too have a gryphonic char, a hippogryph but the only time I use her is at one forum. Shes a part of me but more a desire to take to the air sometimes.
 One of my very 1st fursonas ever was fully gryphon, a  bright redclay colored african lion/redtailed hawk, sized and built much like a greyhound, she was called Flicker after the darting little bird. She wasnt right tho, didnt feel like me.

Interesting question! '<img'>

I really love squirrels. They're awesome little animals; they're so hyper and their tails are so beautiful, and I could sit there watching them for hours. =: ) I've also recently discovered a fascination with raccoons-- something about those cute masks and ringtails, hehe (although it's actually more the anthros than the real animals that interest me, if that makes any sense). But I don't think I could make a fursona out of either of them-- because the fact is, I have a much deeper connection to rabbits than to either of those two animals. Squirrels and raccoons are interests of mine, but rabbits are part of my life, if that makes sense... it's hard to explain, but I know that I am a rabbit, and I feel like I'll always be.

Though I suppose anything is possible....

I've been playing around with a fox fursona on SL lately. Foxes are just so damn pretty. They fit me in some ways, but not really. Just fun to play because you can be trickstery and cute at the same time.

I kinda wanted to be a tiger, but I don't act like a tiger. So I'm a lynx cause it fits my personality best.

I think I know what yer talking about.  Whenever I get compared to an animal it's a cat people say I'm like.  But my personality just isn't the same as a cat, so it's not my fursona.

Incidently I did consider a cat when I was making a fursona but I didn't choose it and I'm not planning on changing my fursona any time soon.

I've got a horse character and a bit of a connection to horses, but I just don't feel that I could really be a horse.

My other choices were a crow, raven, wolf, or pegasus. They didn't "Click" as well as a dragon did. Dragon was my first choice, and the others were more of an after thought.

I'd like to switch to a wolf but I don't think my personality would fit with a wolf fursona.

As the girl with a million fursonas I've definately felt that way before. I was actually wanting to be a unicorn for awhile there but something made me feel like I couldn't. No matter what I try nothing seems to fit me. I don't know why. *shrugs*

I also have two fursonas the first is the wolf of course and the other one is an ordinary housecat sometimes I act more like a cat then a wolf. Unless there is a full moon then the wolf part of me is released or if I get hurt, but most if the time it is the cat. But one I really wish I was more like is the wolf because they are gorgeous creatures even when they have blood on their muzzles from eating whatever animal they brought down.  '<img'>

for me I feel like I'm a fox cuz they are sneaky and trickey, I sound like a horse but I'm not either one of those. I can barely roar like a lion sumtimes I wish that I was King of the Jungle but I'm no lion that is why I'm half wolf & half Dragon.

I considered my favorite creature, the three-toed sloth, but it didn't suit me the way that a polar bear does. I also would have enjoyed being a manta ray, a fruit bat, or a Lunar Moth.....

I thought these were all totally random, but it turns out that they are 1st and 4th flight..... (Insects were the first to develop flight, then the flying dinosaurs, then birds, then insects. Zoological history is often written with the successful traits defining the era: for example, almost everything on earth can count in their lineage the development of the cell.)  And the manta has wings, and does fly in a way....

Weird.
The knack of flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

Wolf is the species I choose because it's the species I connect to spiritually and is definately who I am.
However, as an alternat I like the goat. While wolf is me, goat is a great species to RP because they AREN'T like me. Besides, goats are cool in their own right.

I would absolutely love to be an Orca, but I really don't identify with them well enough to have as my fursona. All my life I've been feline/fox-ish, and I don't know if it would be true to myself to make a fursona that wasn't completely me.

I do really love Orcas though...So pretty  '<img'>

Sure, I had that issue.  I love wolves as much as I love dogs, but I really wasn't able to make myself a full wolf.  I don't see myself as being noble, wild or endurant enough to be a wolf.  I do have traces of those characteristics though, and I do love them...so I'm a dog that's just a little bit wolf. ^^;
