    You know, after looking at this thread literally a year later, I realize my post had too much waffling and convolutions; clearly in that part of my life I was less sure of myself, but I can give a much more clear-cut answer now.

    I used to be a part of the Neopets scene when I was in grade school, I also used to be into Transformers although a lot less now. Current fandoms and subcultures I'm a part of (to some extent or less): Goth, Punk, fantasy/sci-fi, GW2, D&D, Shadowrun aaaand...perhaps a couple more that I can't recall but I might add to here when I can think of them. I also love Pokemon but I would never consider myself part of the "fandom" and some years ago I might have considered myself to be part of the furry fandom, but that ship has since sailed.

    The furry fandom is the first "fandom" I've ever actually been involved in, and it will probably be the only one I ever really will be a part of.
    Eh, I guess I could count as a fan of a lot of things - but actually being involved in them outside of "I think this is sort of neat"? Nope.

    The only thing I could think of would be Blizzard games, and more specifically their Warcraft universe. But I'm definitely not as into that as I used to be.

    I used to be a wolfaboo warriortard. Ugh...

    I also really liked Guardians of Ga'hoole and Wolves of the Beyond. But now I don't really care that much about those things anymore. Currently I'm a furry, whovian, Harry Potter fan, brony, and a TF2 fan.

    I used to like MLP. Like a lot.

    Then Rob Renzitti left, and the current show runner, though she is a good writer, and has written several episodes of other cartoons I like, just isn't as good in my opinion. Plus, since Rob Renzitti was the story editor, it kinda shows..

    The fandom didn't help either :<

    I was in an animoo group when I was a kid. I kind of still linger around that area, mainly because the anime crowd holds some interest via the anime that gets pumped out to us. Granted, nowadays there is a lot more shit than there is good stuff, but you never know.


    I considered myself a furry 5 years ago for 2 months, but honestly, the fandom is too filthy to stay in with a clean conscious. The fandoms worst nightmare is the people that inhabit it, but honestly, it has some spectacular artists that I couldn't step away from. I hung around sites like FA (until the unforgivable happened with its staff.). Now I watch from afar, those artists, on their tumblr pages and weasyl.

    Videogames, yeah that's a given.


    Brony, well, the first two seasons were alright,...... as for the fandom that spawned from it, I found myself seeing something similar to furry being generated from it. It pretty much evolved into a lesser furry fandom.



    If Sgt. Frog and detective conan had a dedicated fandom, I'd probably be apart of those.


    But for now, I'm primarily in the pokemon/Nintendo fandom. Yeah, I can feel safe claiming that. And animation if such a thing exists.

    I was same way. Too bad the fandom got self sustaining, though. I would've liked it if the show/entire thing collapsed when the good writers left.

    You've pretty much summed up exactly how I'm like with furry; I'm perfectly content to stay on the fringes and continue to appreciate the better art, draw cool animal people and to be commissioned to draw them, since I've met some great people over the years that are a part of that fandom. I just don't delve too far (not that I ever have anyway).

    Haha, I forgot about being part of the Nintendo fanbase. I'm not as open about it as I was when I was a kid, but I will freely admit to being a fangirl anyway; outside of fantasy, it's probably my oldest fandom I've been a part of.

    I did the furry fandom thing for a while when I was a teenager, but really it lost my interest very quickly. The only reason I hung about FAF and now Weasyl is because a lot of the users were pretty okay people. The sheer amount of badly drawn porn has made me lose interest in most anthropomorphic art, which is a shame because there are some truly amazing artists in this fandom. Why I continue to post here is a mystery.

    The art is the tie that will forever bind us. At times, it feels like I'm fastening my feet to an anchor. But then again, I never would've touched art if it weren't for those superb artists I had exposure to first before the muck of the furry fandom. I probably wouldn't be here on this forum today had it not been for a certain artist submitting when I was first linked to FA.
