That is the traditional greeting of my people. Shock

 

It is a pleasure to meet all of you, I'm sure. You may call me Abel. *bows and bow-wows*

 

I've been aware of the fandom, and the designation of "furry," for going on about two decades. Many of you may consider me an old geezer (I'm in my mid-thirties), so I'm not quite sure what to expect. You see, I've only really been involved in the fandom for short periods of time here and there. Despite being naturally extroverted, I've developed into something of a hermit. Joining this forum is part of my attempt to be more social again. So...hello! *waves excitedly*

 

As far as who I am and what I do, the simplest answer is that I'm an academic. The long version is complicated, which I may or may not choose to explain at a later time. As Shakespear said, "Brevity is the soul of wit" (something I'm typicaly very bad at, in case you haven't noticed by now)! My areas of focus are animalistic imagery within folklore and various forms of literature, especially the alternative sort, such as film and video games. I'm a huge Japanophile, so most of the games I enjoy come from there (e.g. JRPGs and adventure / visual novels). 

 

In terms of what draws me to all things "furry" is that there is something distinctly "human" about it. It seems to embody a certain aspect of our condition (that of being alive) which intrigues me, as I tend to find certain aspects of life, and the human need to constantly justify one's way of it, rather baffling. In addition, ever since I was just a wee lad of only a few years, something within my mind told me that my true place was "in there," among the cartoon animal-people on television. I can't really say for certain why that is, but there it is, all the same. As Popeye says, "I y'am what I y'am!" 

 

In any case, I welcome any who may wish to contact me. It's possible I may even have met a few of you some years back. Please avail yourself of my message box, should you wish to chat. Once again, nice meeting you all, and thanks to those who bothered to read this tedious affair! *bows; exits, stage left*
