Can't Settle On A Fursona

27 Apr 2019, 6:09 pm
Hello everyone,

So, as the title states, I just can't settle on a fursona, even on a species for that matter... I'm really angry at myself for being so inconstant, I literally can't keep a character for more than a few weeks or a few months if I'm lucky (a few days at worst) and I'm really tired of it... I tried to make yet another fursona today by mixing different species together but as fun as it was it just didn't click.

It would be easier if the (numerous) species I've used over the years were close, but some of them couldn't be further apart... I'll name the ones I remember: bear, cat, lion, cow, goat, sheep, monkey, stoat, tanuki, dragon, deer, reindeer, mouse, dormouse, rabbit, tiger, dog (specifically Corgi), spotted hyena, whale shark, seal, shark (great white I think), dolphin, Triceratops, T-Rex, crocodile, bat, hippopotamus and probably some more, not counting mythological beings like centaurs, werewolves, vampires, lamias, fauns, and the like. You can see from this list why I'm angry at myself.

So, what should I do? Still try to settle on a species? Just go "screw it" and make a shapeshifter? I really need advice...

Have you thought of which animal in the real and mythological realms is your favourite? Do you have an animal that you feel especially close to? Try mulling it over in your mind, or write it out on paper, or on a document. Don't stress over it too much either.

Boris First thank you for answering, and well I know that the animals I've used the most were lion, bear, cat and dragon, which are all among my favorites. I know people have been associating me with bears since I was in elementary school so I think that's part of why I love them and have been using one for a while.

I also know that for some reason I'm really attracted to the word cub, and even though I hate children my maternal instinct goes right through the roof when I see bear cubs or lion cubs. I used the cat when I was little because I was exposed to them a lot and Zoey/Ichigo from Tokyo Mew Mew was my favorite character. My best friend thinks felines and bears are the animals that fit me most.

The lion is the animal I used the longest, 4 years, but when I rediscovered a show and made a fanfic about it I used the main character of the fic who was part cat instead of my persona, and I wasn't able to go back to it (my persona was a lion), I suspect it's because of my loss of self-confidence and the depression entering highschool caused me. What I know is that the lion felt right, and still does, since I'm starting to try to use one again, a friend knows about the fact that I'm troubled and told me it might help to regain my confidence to use my persona again or even just make a new one and make it a lion.
