Every time I look, I find a friend who is much more willing to help than I have imagined. I asked Thay Rustback (fursona pictured to the right) a while back if I could commission a banner for the site, and she did a phenomenal job. As I look at it, it really reminds me of why I chose the name of the site anyway.
Back when I joined the fandom, I went by the name of Alexandre (by which I’m still known at Furtopia). My fursona was just a plain fox at first, but then through a series of jokes, he ended up bright pink and blue. Honestly, my colors were flamboyant, but the strange wildness of color paralleled my own excitement of the fandom. In this weird world, I was constantly surrounded by friends. Nowhere else could a neon pink fox ever be taken seriously.
In the same way, I do not expect outsiders to take this site seriously, but those within the fandom will understand the beauty of strangeness.
My many thanks go out to Thay.
