Did a new blog post after seeing comments about changing fursonas started tugging at some bruises from my process becoming Kay.


@ceralor Aw, gosh. I'm surprised you got resistance to replacing Ceralor as your main representation. I remember wondering how interacting with Kay would be different but the actual transition was effortless from my perspective.

Also I'm stunned anyone thinks there's something weird in replacing a fursona. What would be the odds anyone gets their avatar exactly right, first try? (Or right enough to patch over the differences; Austin has changed from his first presentation.)


@ceralor ... Also seriously but Ceralor only goes back to about 2005? I would have sworn you were nearly a decade older than that. Maybe he just fit a squeaky-balloon niche in my life so well I assumed he *had* to have always been there.

@Austin_Dern Oh! I meant from 2016 as the year of reference for that one, was 2001 or 2002.

@ceralor OK. That's still a couple-years-younger dragon than I would have thought! But, eh, all time of that era has blended together. 1996 and 2008 were basically the same week.

@Austin_Dern Couple years younger? Whatcha mean? >.> I was 13 when I started hopping on anywhere at all, and 33 in less than 2 weeks x3

@ceralor What can I say? It never occurred to me that when we met you were underage. You did very well at passing for someone who could go buy helium over the counter.
