I had already published this before, but a depressive crisis made me erase all my publications and almost abandon the furry world. Luckily my friends have not abandoned me, and I am grateful to them for this. And it is mainly because of them that I am publishing this story again.
When I started writing this story in May 2012, it was not my intention to publish it, it was just a pastime, using a Brazilian saying, "give wings to the imagination." It was only a long time later, when I realized that the material I had was reasonable, that I began to think more seriously about publishing the text.
In fact, I delayed making this decision for several reasons. First of all because I used characters from other authors in my story. Secondly, I were afraid of the reactions of the people they read. Thirdly, because I do not know the English language, which becomes a true barrier of communication. And fourth, because I thought I would never have the courage to contact these other authors, whom I had been following enthusiastically for years. But today, I have left behind a lot of these motifs I have outlined above, though the question of language remains a problem, and yet I continue to fear for the reaction of people who read my story. But thanks to the support I received from some people, then I feel it's time to start.
And it is to thank those who supported me, and to give them the well-deserved credits on their influence and their characters in my story, that I write this introduction. So I thank you:
