It's come to my attention -- or perhaps it should be obvious -- that, throughout the furry community (the community as a whole, that is to say; not just the babyfur sect), many people seem to have given their fursonas special characteristics/abilities to differentiate them, if only slightly, from the mass of the furry population; to make theirs unique. These alterations can come in many forms -- special abilities, interesting and eye-catching fur markings/patterns, etcetera -- and are done for a multitude of reasons -- to use the character in a story, to base art off of them, to show them off, etcetera.
The general consensus, I think, is that no one wants to be average or uninspired in their alternate persona choice, as they want others to look at theirs and be impressed at their creativity. However, it's somewhat rare that I come across something in a fursona that I haven't seen done a million times before, i.e. the staple red fox or some vulpine variant. When it comes to species, of course, I think I speak for everyone when I say it's hard to be truly unique or, at the very least, uncommon in your choice (I'll admit I've seen a few blends that I don't think anyone else has done, though). Sometimes, one must even result to fur-less creatures, such as scaled or aquatic specimen, to give themselves a semblance of uniqueness.
That all said, what exactly have you done to make your own fursona unique/uncommon, if anything at all? Whatever it is, do you think you're the only one to have done/thought of it? And why did you bless your creation with such a thing, exactly? Whatever you may have given your online, fur-covered persona, I'm sure we'd like to know what you've done to stand out amongst the crowd. So go ahead and flaunt your furry self's stuff. :3
(Maybe after a few opinions, I'll post my own.)
