Why dragon?  
I'm not the kind who can usually see a community lying empty for half a month, so I'll ask something that's been on my mind.

I'm just curious to ask, why did you choose your fursona? I mean, among all kinds of other species, etc, etc, why dragon, or some sort of related-species?

I do hope I'll have a substantial amount of replies by the time the next post comes out (whenever it is), since I feel that it's a bit too quiet recently.

EDIT: Wow, I'm quite shocked and pleased with the sudden change in style. It looks a lot fresher now.
Current Mood: tiredtired

I usually reply to my own questions in a comment, FYI.

I'm not too sure why I chose a dragon, I suppose it's because I like reptiles, I like fire and I like flying. I think it was more of the "push" factor than the "pull" factor. Whole thing on my LJ, somewhere in the archive.

If you're wondering why I post so much, it's because there weren't many to begin with.

Oh, you mean like therians? I do understand that, yes, they didn't "choose" their spirit animal. But how did they decided which was their spirit animal? Besides, most furries did have a choice of sorts.

I really love reptiles in general.
But because I wanted mine to fly everyone said she had to be a dragon.

If I put more thought into it she'd a been a flying Komodo Dragon lD.

Plus, I'd like something different. Most people say Fox, Wolf, Cat and so I wanted to step out of the box.

Re: Iizzaza! 8D
Actually, according to a few surveys, dragons are highly popular, coming just behind wolfs and foxes. Cats come just after dragons. (http://furry.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_most_popular_phenotypes)

Aw boo. X3
Well, back when I created her, most people I think had different ideas.

Re: Iizzaza! 8D
Yeah well, dragons as the representation of Satan, blah blah blah. When did you create her, anyway?

Re: Iizzaza! 8D
Aw what!?
I didn't know that T3T....
I created her back in late 2005. Every year I draw myself as something else.(this was after we decided to make her as my representation of me.)

Re: Iizzaza! 8D
Just ask any Christian. They're very hot on the topic. Just make sure they don't try to convert you in the process though.

I've updated my own character description on my journal, so that's about me. But if you've been around since 2005, why didn't you change in 2006-9?

Re: Iizzaza! 8D
Don't worry, not gonna happen.

Because I've been working on other things. And Now she's part of a story, I can't change her in the middle of things like that!

I should just make an entry in my journal about her.
She's gone through many changes. (some just slight)
