No. Parting with my sona would probably feel like when I was forced to part with my grandfather

Never. I wouldn't ever consider it. My fursona is me. I'm not parting with myself.

      I wouldn't accept anything for who I am. I am Célestin. I could never be any different right now. I feel attached to who I am. If I were to lose my fursona, even for a great sum of money, I'd lose a part of myself. I believe that I have grown to be this person that is the reality of my fursona. I'd honestly be upset to see someone using a fursona inspired off mine, I'm unique. That's what a fursona is. A fursona is a unique perspective of who you are, or in some cases, who you want to be. Your fursona is a part of you even if you don't recognize it. Ir's who you are online at least if you do nothing else in the great furry society. I don't understand how people can find themselves at peace with themselves when they abandon the furry society, and in turn, their fursona. My idea is very abstract, but we live in an abstract universe, and when you think about, it's true. It's a wonder to be someone that's a part of you, and that is you, in an animal form. It's such a symbol of who a person is, what they resemble, and what what they intend as a person. It is a past, present, and future representation of someone in such an amazing form, that it is litterally unreal. However, it feels very real.

Totally, if someone offered me 100+ dollars, I'd definitely do it. Tbh all a fursona is, is a design nothing more.

No. I couldn't sell either one of mine. Yea i have 5 but they all represent a part of me. And selling them is like selling a part of me. I couldn't do that. Even if someone offered me a small loan of a million dollars I still wouldn't do it.

Okay, new fursona. Basically the same thoughts on Mirienke as with Calliope (I posted about her on the page before this one) except I'm more attached to Mirienke than I was with Calliope (And I think it's because Mirienke has a more developed personality than Calliope did. Miri was, after all, created with the intention of being a normal character). I highly doubt she'll phase out as a regular character, so I don't think I could ever part with her.

I get attached to things easyly and can be a bit of a hoarder.
I don't think I could sell Lee or Farron, I haven't had either characters for a year yet(had Farron for almost a month) and I've grown really attached to them and feel their apart of me. Lee is design after me(other than looks) while Farron is kinda who I want to be, she is strong and fearless. I wish I was more strong and not afraid of everything. Lee is practically me but better looking XD while being tougher than me(not in personality though), Lee is is pretty weak mentally and huge scaredy cat, like me.
Both sonas play a part in who I am, their both me in a way. I would not be comfortable selling them unless I was desperate for money and people who purchase them will use them, treat them well, and not uh....rule 34 them. I'd hate to see any of my characters, especially fursonas end up in porn.
Nagi I'm not quite attached to yet so I could probably sell her but like any of my OCs she will still be hard to give up.
I've changed sonas since then :P Farron isn't an alt anymore as she has developed into her own character but I don't think I could part with her still unless it was guaranteed she'd be in a video game or something(unfortunately that means unwanted shipping and porn but at least it make my dream come true >u<) but I will still be picky as the story and personality will still have to be original or no sale.
And I have actually been thinking of selling Lee, I still love her and she still personal to me but I haven't been giving her any attention and would love to see her be used again ;u; she won't be cheap though.

Now onto the actual topic, with my current sona most likely not. Even if I was desperate she has become way to personal to sell at all, she is most literally me nearly same everything unlike my past sonas. I also have commissioned artwork, art from trades, gifts and even couples art(although not a lot) of her, which makes her feel even more personal and also gives me reason to keep her. Wheras my previous sonas only had drawings from me save for a trade or two, which I guess made them feel less personal.
Also this Nagi is a totally different character from the one I'm talking about in my last post who I have kinda stopped using :P

My main fursona (who I relate with the most) I would never give away for any sum of money. I probably wouldn't sell my second one either but I don't care much about my third and might sell him.

I think it's the fact that somebody else would now own my fursona that makes me so reluctant to sell him. I mean, it it was just letting him go for a sum of money, it might be different. It would probably bug me though if somebody else was mistreating or misusing my fursona. I wouldn't be table to do anything about it though because then they own him. On second thought giving a fursona up is probably not going to happen, but it's a log easier than selling to somebody.

Never ever would I sell any of the three. Even if I decided not to use them anymore I wouldn't sell the designs.

Yeah Dolly is based so much off of myself that I'd feel super weird if someone else was using her differently. If there was a lot of money and I just had to let her go, (no one else would use her) or I was leaving the fandom and someone I trusted wanted her, then yeah maybe. However, I don't think I'd ever sell her to a stranger if I was staying a furry. Even if she didn't really represent my personality anymore, she's still a really sentimental character.

Honestly.... never. Not a fursona. A character, RELUCTANTLY. depends on if I designed it or not

But like... idk, it feels like selling a piece of yourself, even if you don't connect with it anymore. Like, that USED to be you

I guess it just depends on the fursona

Goose i wouldn't sell or anything since I'm more attached to him than any other fursona I've ever had
If offered the right amount of money I may sell the others but I mean a lot of money

No, not ever.
Blas is way to personal to me and has too many connections to my everyday life to ever sell and see somebody else with.
I feel like I've put pieces of myself and energy into him that I would lose if I ever sold him. ;n;
I couldn't sell my main alts either, they represent phases in my life and some of them I've had for years.

As for the others, who are more like characters- maybe,  depending on which one, and how much money was offered.
