    As I don't really consider myself a furry, I got into the community via FA and Livejournal. FA has its bugs and some things about it are sucky, but I'm pretty comfortable with the site and its features overall.

    I wanted to improve my artwork, expand my audience to get commissioners, and make new friends- and I've done all of those on FA better than I have anywhere else. A lot of my friends that I met outside of FA are furries, so drawing their characters made me comfortable with drawing anthro/furry art. I got better at it and I enjoy it a lot more than I used to.

    I honestly never thought I'd put myself even close to the furry fandom, or get involved. But to be honest I like it a lot more than other communities.

    Saw Renard's album covers and found them intriguing. Later when a Gmodder had plenty of "I'm not a furry nor have I got anything against them" posts on his tumblr made me google furry and I found they were these anthro animals. Glad I saw the censored version of furaffinity when I found it. Otherwise I might not be here

    I got into the fandom in high school when I started writing pokemon fanfiction. That led me to some pokemon sites and eventually into the furry fandom. I was already a fur, I just didn't know about the fandom.

    A friend of mine joined fA, so I decided just to do it for the hell of it. I do more feral art than furry art, though. But I am planning to save money for a fursuit (which will take years |D; )

    I was on Gmod.org and people were complaining about furries.

    I wondered what the hell it was.

    Googled it all.

    Thought it was wierd.

    Got really drunk one day.

    Signed up to FA/F.

    Came back the day after.

    Made a habit out of it.

    Booze did me good, I say. Without having done that, I think I would have been even more miserable than I usually am. I met some cool people online, I discovered art, I learnt some more about myself in the meantime, had a lot of fun, I had stuff to do.

    I tripped and fell ass-first into it and that's all there is to it, really.

    I used to pretend to be different animals as a kid, and I've always been obsessed with flying. When I was 5, I stuck with a weird brown thing I made up because I watched too many cartoons with anthros in them and I kept that definition for myself until I was 14, then I traded it for a crappy Sonic fan character and when shit went down and everyone hated me for being annoying (and I got sick of Sonic fandom) I changed it again to look like this.

    I don't think I ever officially came out as one in a big thread before, I just assumed I was one and whatever avatar I used confirmed it. I love that there are other people who like anthro as much as I do, because as a kid, I thought maybe I was weird. (Also when I was 10, I literally thought I was something else inside a human shell, kept thinking that until I was 13 because I was always in the minority on interests.)

    Best explanation ever.
    If you say "plz" because it's shorter than "please," I'll say "no" because it's shorter than "yes."
