So I woke up one day and found out I was a furry.

To be perfectly honest my first thought after my sudden realization was "Oh !@#$". You see I live in a rather... politically and socially conservative community and I really doubt they would be that tolerant. So I've only told a few trusted friends and otherwise try to remain firmly planted in the proverbial closet.

On that note I was a bit nervous about setting up this account and thus did a variety of computer tricks to make it as anonymous as possible. (like building a computer from looted junk parts so they cannot be traced to me, password protecting my cookies, constantly clearing my history, creating a secret email account... you know basic stuff.)

But I realized that if I ever want to get in contact with the rest of the online community I'd have to bite the bullet and hope I didn't get mobbed.

So anyway hi! I'm Chanticleer and I'm an incredibly paranoid wolf/dragon.

Now that's an introduction. :) Welcome to the forums and your steady descent into Perdition...I mean, wholesome family fun! *ahem* I have one question though, why is your topic named after Franz Kafka? Just wondering is all.

Drawing a comparison to how Gregor Samsa woke up one day and found out he was a cockroach?

Indeed. Thanks for clarification. I would have gotten the reference any other time, but at the moment I'm functioning 50% due to sleep deprivation.

It was also a reference to the perverse yet slightly humorous qualities of my situation, but yeah he got the main idea.

Welcome to the FA forums, Chanticleer (quite an interesting way to describe your realization of being a furry as an analogy to Kafka's "Metamorphosis," BTW :D). :) If you have any questions or concerns that you need addressed, please don't hesitate to ask around. You can direct them to me or the other staff members by PM, and we'll be glad to help you out in any way we can. :) Hope you enjoy your stay on here. ;)

You think that's bad? My first thought was "They misspelled Kefka."

Wow; culture, and not just from leaving that milk out of the fridge. + bonus points for the original non-cockroachy German, as that might suit even more, phps? ;)

*prrprrs* Greetings, Chanticleer!
Feel free to hang up that paranoia on a nearby hook (just in case req'd at short notice): there are plenty foxes around to be wary of, but not /everyone/ here works for Vanity Fair. *jk*

Best wishes & Enjoy the community,
David/uncia


(p.s./aside: To be honest, there's rarely any particular need to tell anyone, IRL, IMHO ^^).

thanks!
I also took my name from the protagonist of "The Nun's Priest's Tale" Geoffrey Chaucer's beast fable.
*chuffles and points to the foxy reference* ^^

*nodnods* Certainly have to be wary of those critters; anthro or otherwise. ;)
Might appear cute and yifluffy on the outside...

Worth going the extra tale or two for someone who's spent time coming up with such a nick and good intro, Chanticleer. ;)

"Paranoid" != "chicken"? *g*
Looks like a wolf/dragon from here, anyhow... *takes a side-step warily, just in case*
