Six years is an eternity, in Internet Time.
It was in early 2011 when I finished assembling the pieces of a Second Life avatar with a woman's body, a rat's head, white fur, and blue spiky hair. Within a few months, I'd commissioned pictures of her; within a few years, I built an entire science-fiction universe for her to live in.
When I was very young, one of my first furry experiences was seeing the absolutely silly centaur in a Hercules cartoon, but then trying to imagine what it would actually feel like to have six limbs. In the '90's, when I discovered FurryMUCK, I imported a sapient bat D&D character, turned it into a shapeshifter who spent a lot of time as a blue fox-taur, and for a time used the nom-de-net "Foxtaur"; that's still my username at SlashDot. The point being, people grow and change, and as we do, the perfect fursona in one decade no longer quite fits the next.
I've come up with a new fursona that I think more closely reflects who I've become in recent years. I'll be posting something on that later today; I think, and hope, you'll appreciate the new me as much as I do. I'm looking forward to seeing you all from a new pair of eyes.
