    Introduce Yourself

    Post by Lance_Foxx on Mon Dec 08, 2008 4:46 am

    Howlo,

    I'm Lance Foxx and I just recenetly started reading BPD. I'm currently 29, live in Oceanside, California, and I just thought I'd introduce myself since I didn't recognize anyone's name amongst all the forum members here.

    In character, I'm a fox, as I hope is evident from my icon. My character's fur is of a golden shade of orange. I have black "gloves" on my hands and feet, ears, and a white tipped tail. My underside is white. My eyes are yellow. I typically don't wear a shirt, but I'm usually seen in a pair of blue jean shorts. I stand digitigrade. Um...

    I appear pretty average for an anthro fox, nothing fantastic about how I look. That's how I started out in 1997 and how I appear today, however I do have a unique trait. I love shapeshifting. I've been a passion of my character and a real love of mine for years. Because of this, I gradually made my character better versed at shapeshifting, ultimately becoming a liquid shapeshifter.

    Liquid Form: (PG 13 for tasteful nudity) http://fc41.deviantart.com/fs16/f/2007/207/e/0/Liquid_Dancers_by_Lance_Foxx.jpg Think of me like warm paint, just not as oily. This was done with another amazing artist and liquid shifting friend of mine, Holly Hindle. We both drew our characters liquifying and dancing together in openCanvas.

    In a normal setting, though, you don't have to picture me as a liquid fox if you don't like the idea. I do solidify and can be "normal" since it's how I started out. I'm fine with that for RPs and such. Just know this is how my character has evolved over the years and I'm really happy with this as my permanent form.

    Out of character, I'm a fellow artist, Furry, Were, and former U.S. Navy Sailor. I served from 1997 to 2002. After the military, I moved in with my mate and got a job in security. I have lived in the San Diego area since 1998 and I love to call this place home.

    I like The X Files, WoW, techno music, art, lucid dreaming, spiritual stuff, freelance writing, freelance journalism, earthquakes, wildfires, UFOs, NASCAR, and cheesecake.

    I hope posting this was okay. I didn't see any topics for new people giving introductions to who they are and all, so I thought I'd start one. ^^;

    Hey, cool. Very Happy Great sticky idea.

    I'm Shii, and it's not only my fur name, it's my nickname in real life, as well as my stage name while I'm performing.

    I'm 6'4" both in real life, and in roleplay. I'm a fairly average white wolf, black and silver head fur, also like real life. I'm a diehard metal fan, musician, and performer, and I'm in a couple different bands at the moment, one a more mainstream rock group, and the other a progressive metal group, both located here in Nashville.

    I'm a very creative wolf, and I enjoy both drawing and writing, as well as music obviously. Math and the technical sciences completely lose me. :3

    I typically wear a lot of black (stereotypical, I know), with black composing roughly 2/3 of my shirt/coat/shoes wardrobe. I also like shiny metal things, and adorn myself with as many as I can find hehe. This includes but isn't limited too chains, spikes, collars, safety pins, studs, necklaces, bracelets, etc.

    Pretty much all of the above applies to both myself and my fur. It's almost like we're the same person! x3

    Nice to meet you, and I look forward to getting to know you too. Smile

    Well, why not? ^.^

    My real name is Adam, hence RabbyADAM. Rabby has always been my nickname. Among anyone Ive befriended met, only about 3 of them insisted on calling me by my true name. I will only say that, about my last name, it has the German meaning of Playground. ^.^

    Hmm, I've been trying to think of a fursona for so long. I will eventually draw myself as half dog-half cat, but I'm waiting for my drawing skills to catch up with my imagination. I will most likely draw my stature as it is in real life. I have long curly/wavy brunette (with blond high-lights) hair, and I'm not like those scruffy-looking guys; I do have enough vanity to keep myself nice always. I wear glasses sometimes and I'm majoring in Acting and minoring in Communications and Writing. I am required to take pre-calculus also. ugh >.<

    Well, thats me! And If ya wanna know anything else, PM me! ^.^,
    Rabbyadam

    Finally, a chance to hand out some personal info for potential stalkers. Anyway, I'm Craig and I'm from over the pond in Scotland. Contrary to popular belief, we don't all run around in kilts playing the bagpipes, no matter what Sean Connery may have led you to believe. I'm dressed pretty smartly most of the time in fact.

    I'm pretty much exactly six feet, have floofy black hair (natural by the way, I'm not sure why everyone I meet seems to think it's dyed), and I'm a year or so into a engineering degree which promises to make me filthy rich at the end of it, that is if I can somehow wrap my tiny little mind around advanced calculus. Next year I'm planning to join the Territorial Army, mainly to try a whole load of new things and learn a bunch of new skills that everyone'll chase me for, but also to give me something to do on the weekends rather than wasting them drinking.

    I'm a fairly creative soul when I've got the free time - I've been playing tenor sax for a few hours now, trying to get my head round the art of improvising. I tend to do a lot of writing at the weekends, still not unable to stick with a specific genre yet but hey, that can't be a bad thing right? I'm still working on bringing my drawing up to scratch, and hopefully when this exam period is over I'll get to spend a few weeks drawing near constantly.

    Apart from that I spend my time reading a whole bunch of different webcomics, waaay too much time on gaming in general, watching my favourite shows on demand over the internet (the BBC are so good to me) and listening to truly, truly awful music.

    Hey guys, my real name is Tony. I live way down in Texas. Picture every single stereotype of a Texan you have, then throw them all out the window, 'cause that's not me. I do wear black shirts exclusively, but no other black can be found on me. Sometimes I wear a hat. Smile

    I'm into fantasy novels, Magic, building random things, sleeping, and webcomics. I actually pseudo-professionally reviewed webcomics for a while; first at The Webcomic Review and then more recently at Frumph.net. Unfortunately, I had to stop rather suddenly when hurricane Ike hit and college-related reasons.

    I'm currently in college working on my Physics degree.

    My real name isn't Arka, but it'll do for now. I'm also way down in Texas. ^_^ Like Rabbyadam, I'll only say that my last name is the German word for 'stag'.

    I used to be a social worker for disaster victims. It was a very stressful job, mostly because the people who're still in disaster housing due to Katrina are either critically disabled or addicted to something serious. Meth, cocaine, heroin, alcohol...something. And a lot of them had kids. So, there I was, trying to get these deadbeat parents into rehab, help them build a resume, and hopefully, to get a job.

    When hurricane Ike hit us, I was one of a tiny handful of social workers with the Housing Authority who was able to make it to the office. =p Long story short, I had to quit.

    In my spare time I play Guild Wars, or work on my story. It's a piece I've been working on for about ten years now. I don't think I'll ever finish it, seeing as how my inner editor compels me to start over every two years or so.

    I just got my master's degree in International Affairs, and my national security certificate, so I'm pretty excited about that. I got to meet some of the most interesting characters during my studies...people who were honest to god spies back in the day. I thought the 'husband and wife' spy-couple was a Hollywood cliche.

    Howdy!
    My name is Dan (Or Daniel or Danny) and I also hail from the great state of Texas. While I don't look like a typical Texan I do have several Texan likes such as Steaks, Motors, Guns, and a good time.

    I just recently had to quit college momentarily because my reserve unit is going to Iraq soon. I enjoy Science Fiction, Video Games, Fantasy, and Comic Books.

    I haven't ever really roleplayed as any creature ever but if I did I would have to say I would be a white siberian tiger of some kind. Anywho I love web comics and I saw a link to Broken Plot Device so heres I yams!

    Wow this is like the 3rd one of these that I have written.

    Well heres the jist of my life,

    I am a web/graphic designer and HTML/CSS guru. I live near Vancouver BC in the great country of Canada. I draw fantasy, furry and anime art in my free time as well as design and create websites for fellow artists. By the way if anyone is interested in hiring me to do them a website please email me at dragonmanmike@gmail.com.

    BPD has to be one of my favorite web comics out there. I have read it since the begging and Lizardbeth has had a great influence on my art even before she started the comic.

    Hiya! My name's Eigen Smile I have a rl name but iffin you want to know you gotta get to know me more anyways *purrs* I like being behind the fursona of a red wolf (and sometimes various feline forms, depending on my mood) and really, the name Eigen works better than a rl name that reflects the fleshy (slightly less furry) human form!

    Some rl stuff that transcends into the digital realm is that i'm 24 years old, Canadian and finishing an Asian Studies degree this spring. I might go back to finish my Aerospace Engineering but that job has lost alot of desire to me. So might stay in school and do int'l management Smile

    I love to play WoW, Second Life and enjoy RPG's and Warhammer 40k. I also write some poetry and short stories...mostly for the girlfriend these days so I can get a lick on the cheek. I love you

    So's anyway. I sees that'cha'll wanna know about the people that comes an' reads all yer stuff.

    So I'm Cassie, my parents gave me a name very similar to that, If you try calling me by that name, I will probably stab you with a spork. Several times.

    Anyway, I try to keep me as close to me as possible, so describing either the person typing right now, or the person you meet on SL is kinda interchangeable, just less fur and stuff.

    I'm 23, 5'10" I weigh -censored- and am proud of it! And I usually type what's on my mind, and usually the way I'd say it, making for words like "that'cha'll" or "prettyful".

    Anyway, that's me.

    Hallo,my name is Timo and I came by a long way from germany straight to this forum. I hope my english will do its job and I beg you pardon for possible spelling mistakes and confused word order!^^
    I live in an town called Walsrode (30000 people) which has the biggest bird park in the world. But it is not that famous even though it is really big.
    I am just starting my career as a farmer and I am looking forward to take over the family business with agriculture and tourism which are the two things our familiywork is based on.
    19 years as you can see,1,80m small,72kg weight.
    I love sports activities, I love japan,the japanese language and everything related to this country. My dream of visiting japan for one year will come true in 2011 after I have finished my preparings for future work and university.
    Unfortunately I don´t play online games and I don´t know much about this topic eighter!^^ But I love to play on my Nintendo-collection and X-Box.
    Work is trying to get my time but I try to spend as much time as possible with my friends and have a great time (life is short).
    I went to the army for my military service and I am still an active member of the army in germany trying to help the people and to make the world a little better.
    Nice to meet you all and I hope I´ll have a good time with you all and BPD!

    Hello, I'm not going to give my real name on the internets so you can just call me by my nickname, Pandora or Pandora's Box. Yes. I DO have the power to unleash pure evil.

    A few things about me...well...I like to act on stage as a hobby, and I am working on a career as a tattoo artist. I like IronMan, but I hate Batman so I swear to Ganesh if anyone tries to shove anything about the Dark Knight, or any other thing relating to Batman, I will join Cassie up there in stabbing you in the face.

    I have four tattoos. The Faun from El Labyrinto Del Fauno (Pan's Labyrinth) (tattoo number 1) Brian Froud's Rust Spot Faerie (tatt number 2) and the two talking door knockers from the Labyrinth (yes, the David Bowie movie...). If it wasn't obvious by the subject matter of my tattoos, I love fantasy things. When I die, I'm going to Narnia.

    On the side I'm in the process of joining an improv comedy group called the Rats in the Alley. Improv like "Who's Line is is Anyway?" That stuff. It's really fun. (And I once more swear to Ganesh if anyone mentions that amateur Nick Cannon, I will switch that fork out for a plastic spoon and keep stabbing.)

    My favorite animals are lions and lionesses, and my fursona is a lioness called (what else) Pandora.

    And because this happens to me on EVERY forum I go to...I AM A GIRL...yes, I like IronMan, yes, I like tattoos, yes I do boyish things, but I have a boyfriend and I'm not gay so that would make me female. Yes...I have been mistaken for a gay man before...someone actually told me they assumed I was gay before they thought about me being a woman...X( ...On that note, I am an active advocate for gay rights...

    Hey all, my name's Cal

    I've been reading (and loving) BPD for a while now and finally got around to joining the forum since I'm on vacation and have a bit of free time to get to know you guys.

    I'm a pilot, currently going to school at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical U. Right now I'm working on my instrument rating. My furrsona is a Dhole/Golden Retriever mutt, based on my personality. (I'm usually fairly "professional" but in very comfortable situations I have a fluffy side that shows through)

    hm, what else... oh yeah. I'm also a big fan of Pulp Adventure stories, like The Rocketeer, The Mummy, Indiana Jones, etc. I don't know if I'll ever fight mummies, but once I graduate I'm going to make a point of finding some career that'll get me some adventure, like flying aid missions in the congo, island hopping in the carribbean, or air racing.

    besides all that, i like power metal, firefly, and the 80s XD

    cya'll on the forums!

    Hey new guy here. Been lurking for a little bit and decided to join up and chat with y'all. Love the comic, great artwork, characters and story so far. I'm a gamer, a talker and a lover (don't take that seriously Razz) big into music (play guitar/piano, use Reason) and I'm learning to draw right now. Don't have a really fursona yet, but I've always been kinda interested in it so I thought this would be a cool place to start. Anyways nice to meet everyone and hope to enjoy the comic in the future. Peace.
