Would you say your fursona species represents you?
« on: March 05, 2016, 05:28:58 pm »
Be honest. Do you feel like your fursona species represents you, or did you just pick a cool-looking animal?

I can't really contribute much to the conversation since I don't have a set-in-place fursona (yet) and am bouncing between species, but the ones I am deciding between all represent me as a person. I'm trying to carefully consider which one fits me the most, and look at the different aspects before making a choice.

Also, even if you did just pick a cool-looking animal without reflecting on how much it actually relates to you, that's alright. What counts is that you love your fursona and are proud of it.


I have a sinking feeling that a topic like this has been made before

A stereotypical dragon doesn't represent me, no. But my fursona sure as heck does. :fox-:P:

Somewhat. I do kind of feel like a fox-pigeon fits me a bit, but in the end I guess only somewhat?

I picked a fox because it represents me, my personality, and how I act I guess. Otherwise, I wouldnt have picked an animal that almost everyone in the fandom uses.

      If only that was true. If only I could be more like my fursona. I'd be much better than I am today. I'd be less imperfect and more pure. It would be such a glorious site even for you. Doves are so pure and lovely. They have little faults and resemble grace. They fly above all. It would be a fantastic feeling unmatched by who I really am. I would be so free! That's reality. That's the boundary we're limited to. It's a thought that we often refuse to see in the furry society. We see ourselves as our fursonas as we forget who we really are in the world. The boundary is till there, but our fursonas help us ignore it, or make it transparent. You come to a point where you realize how different you are and how inferior you are to who you want to be, your fursona. You must accept it because it's real. What's real can't be changed if it's definite such as who we are. However, we can improve who we are but not neccesarily change who we are. Developing is an improvement. We can be more like our fursonas with development.

Only in the sense that I say it does. My fursona is totally arbitrary. I don't feel any more of a connection to a fox than I do to a turtle or a squid. They're just slightly more cool imo. x3

My fursona isn't a particular race. It's not a lizard, because it has ears. It's not a dragon, because it doesn't have wings. In that aspect he represents me a little, I'm one thing, but missing something that's usually associated with it. Like I like skateboarding/longboarding, but I dress like a preppy kid (Not like an emo kid). I'm good at math, but my main goal is in art. I like metal, and even a bit of screamo, but if someone saw me at first sight they might think I like classic or jazz or something that's not metal. I guess in a sense its these things that me and my fursona have in common.

Dragons.. I don't think they represent me that much, but when I took a "what should your fursona be" test it said dragon and I thought dragons are cool so I decided to be one.

I designed Proto to be pretty much me, but the truth is that I feel almost like I'm cheating since I pretty much only say it and I don't show it :fox-:P: Otherwise, since I'm not really a thief in real life then he doesn't really represent me x3

My fursona's species definitely does not represent me. If I'd wanted one to represent me, I likely would've gone with a mouse or other small rodent.
Calling me wolf like would be an insult. XP I hate wolves, they're my least favorite animal. My fursona was a mistake.
My fursona himself also isn't me [but that wasn't the question] nor is he someone I would ever strive to be like. He's just a character I've got a connection with.

No. I really have no idea why I went with a canine, I'm nothing like one, they're not even my favourite animals. I feel like I just kinda jumped on the bandwagon. Her dragon/fairy parts come from some of my favourite mythical creatures, idk if they really represent me but I do really like them (plus she was inspired by Maleficent who is a fairy/dragon)

Pepper my horse sona would represent me best species wise. Horses are pretty timid, nervous, submissive creatures who have a tendency to follow others and are easily spooked and that is honestly me
