So I'm lying here in the darkness because I'm too lazy to turn on the light :P and I decided hey let's write some shit about how awesome becoming a furry was/is!
So I'll start at the start and I'll try not to ramble too much, but let me know if I do. What's that? You can't? you're reading this after I wrote it? Oh well I'll guess you will just have to put up with any ranting.
So anyways I've known about these weird things called furries for a while and like a lot of people I was duped by the media and Internet and I thought that furries were people who got turned on by wearing an animal costume like some sick psychos. Also at some point in time I realised I was a DL (but that's a story for another time) and as a result of which I found myself here. On ADISC. Talking to you. You sad person.
Anyways I saw many of you were furries and also baby furs and I found the art work adorable, so I started to look into this a bit more and I found that hey, furries are actually really cool.
Then I stopped taking notice and went about my DL business. A few months passed and I found myself as I often am on YouTube, this time I was watching the American TV show My Strange Addictions, the AB episode with Riley Kilo (on a side note I think Riley wasn't the best person they could have picked) and I happened to spy the furry episode with fursuiter Lauren. As I watched I was captivated by how fun it looked to wear a fursuit. I immediately watched another video, and another, all on furries.
I was hooked, I made a fursona (not a baby fur or a diaper fur) and I joined a furry forum where I discovered that a Furry convention would be taking place in 2 weeks only 2 hours away and better yet my family would all be interstate, so I didn't even need to tell them if I didn't want. The only down side, I could only attend the last day because of work. And so it was that I attended the last day of MiDFur 13th, I got there just in time for the fursuiters walk, which was really cool. I also had a quick look around the dealers den before it closed and as it was the last day and there weren't any panels running I went to the charity comedy show featuring "2" the Ranting Gryphon and Jibba Foxcoon. Then I had to leave to catch the train home, but it was still really cool to go there. I already have tickets for the next one in December ;)
I have also started doing anthro art work and a couple of short poems and I have started building a fursuit of my 'sona. Another thing I learned about furries, only about 15-20% are fursuiters.
If you have read this far then I congratulate you, and then I say really? You had enough free time to read to the rumblings of a bored dragon? The next one will be shorter and more entertaining I promise.
