What is your fursona to you?
« on: June 25, 2010, 07:46:01 pm »
Just a mere thing I was wondering lately - what do people's fursonas mean to them?

To me, my fursona is just an anthro representation of me in furry communities, and nothing really more.

For me, Harlan's another form to live in, in the subconscious and dream world. He provides a place for me to retreat to within my own mind to get away from the stress of everyday life.

Tora's about the same, except more of a character to create stories for.

Me in my dog's body. If he was anthromorphic. Im totally in love with my dog, who was my inspiration to my fursona. But all in all, we share the same personality.

My fursona to me is like a character in a story. I mainly use him to be the hero or Villain in a story. I know my fursona is not me so I let him be his own person. We may look similar but our personalities are completely different.  Plus  he represent me in the furry community.

My fursona is a way to further express myself. I highlight certain points of my real-life personality, and emphasize them in my fursona. I can act how I want, and not really care what others think of me. It's a made up character, so you can be whimsical and exaggerated! That's really the fun of it!

Like others said, Seth represents me in the furry fandom. He has the same personality as me. The only difference between us (other than the species xD) is that he just has a name I actually like.

 The friend I always wanted but only found in myself. Back when I had the social skills of tree moss (I'd lay about until someone came up to me, and even then they weren't very interested), I made my own friends in a sort of ongoing story. Once I got older and it got a lot harder for me to tell myself that story, I lost the best friend I ever had. Duino's my way of getting back to that idea, and regressing to a time when my imagination was more powerful and bringing back some of the memories I wish could have been more real.
And that's why they call me Duino Duck- Drake of Daring, Mandarin of Magnificence, Water Fowl of West Seattle!

Daniel, is, for me, a way to imagine and somewhat live my dream life.  He's secluded, is a guy (I always thought life would be so much easier if I were male), and, above all, can fly without the restrictions that come with human flight methods.

Well, she's kind of a different me. She's exactly like me when it comes to appearance (as much as I could, she has my body shape, my height, weight, sometimes eye colour, etc~~) and her personality (sensitive, curious, weirdo, overly playful, that sort of thing) mirrors mine. I tried to make her just like me.
I'm attached to her, but I know she's not really real. She's pretend, made up, and I'd like her to stay that way.

Badgers are my favorite animals. Its interesting how I compare to them. They are very persistent and carefree animals, but at the same time very temperamental. As a person I am all of those things! It was kind of a sign when I did this donation thing and the animal I ended up donating to was Willow the badger. Hence the other half of my name. So it kind of compares to me in personality, I suppose.

My fursona is probably me but with more personality. In my imagination he does things that I want to accomplish. Luke is diligent, clever, sneaky and a very cunning fellow that can do what ever he can I any situation.

If a ever made a Alt fursona, I'd have to put a lot of thinking into it. Maybe try and make some connection between the two.

As others might have already said, my fursona is basically an anthro representation of me. His personality and appearance are as close as possible to mine, but some features are exaggerated or what I want to do with my own appearance (I.E he has dyed headfur, which I have been wanting to doto my hair for a while.)

the fursona i have taken on is the manifestation of myself in all he cynicism and hatred along with gentlemanly qualities that i have. thats how i am underneath the mask of human socialist conduct. to be honest, i think that i act more like myself when im around other furs... normal humans dont...'take' to me lightly...

otherwise speaking, it is my spiritual body that is my preference.
It seems like humans have forgotten that they are animals at heart... We furries awakened to that truth...

What could that mean?

Greek is my expressive side of me that isn't afraid to try something stupid. He's me but as an anthro German Shepherd. Greek is also based of my old dog Macon. So Greek is a connection to the greatest dog I ever had in my life.

Izzy is basically me thrown out to the extreme.  Basically myself, my personality, behavior, appearance (kinda) and feelings, transformed into an alternate self, an over exaggerated prehistoric anthropomorphic version of myself.

I feel so complicated xD My fursona is basically my "inner self" but different. I'm not a therian, although I would like to become my fursona. I don't think I have the "spirit of a wolf" in me or am incarnated or anything. My philosophy is completely different.
I believe that everyone has an animal that matches their personality, don't you? And personally, I think those who have found that match think of themselves as furries. I believe that everyone has a natural set of skills or instincts that are from that animal, like descendants. I don't believe that we are born from animals or that the Gods (if there are any) are animals themselves, I'm just saying that I think that everyone has instincts that match, or closely resemble that of an animal. Mine for instance would be a wolf. I've always found them wonderful creatures, and I resemble them and their behavior naturally. My three morals are honor, love, and respect, which are the three morals that a wolf pack revolves around. My physical abilities are resemblances as well. I have very good eyesight, am good at tracking (humans and animals, don't ask), I have very precise hearing and mental mapping skills. My body is likewise. I'm strong and toned, but not overly buff, and I can move through forests with such speed and silence that I have been given the nickname "Wolf" without anyone knowing I'm a furry.
So, for me, my fursona and it's counterparts have a much more spiritual and sentimental resemblance for me than just an alter ego... I look at wolves as creatures of the utmost beauty and discipline, almost like a family.
So... Please don't bash me for my beliefs. I know I'm not the average orthodox furry, but this is what I truly stand by.
So yeah  :D
