furry = fantasies that involve people?

Just had this thought...
Don't people usually fantasize in the absence of real people? Like, just being alone for long stretches, or having nothing to do, or not being very social? Aren't these good reasons to fantasize?

I usually get very specific ideas when I do imagine characters or people I would like to know. So, this concept of involving other people and pretending that are something they really aren't confuses me a lot at times. It's even worse if the person can't even make-believe very well themselves or enguage in a real kind of play. How in the world am I supposed to suppress this huge amount of info my mind and body is giving me?

I'll gladly play along with someone if they themselves are also playful. I can even see glimmers of their character in their personality. I love that stuff. In contrast to this, I've know some that just make ZERO effort at being playful or fun. It's a huge let down when you look forward to it.  Some people can do more to spoil a good fantasy than help it.

I remember the reasons I got into liking furry, and it wasn't much about sharing it with other people. I know...that sounds bad, but eh, being 13 you sure as hell don't want to appear freakishly different from anybody else right? I just look back at that...then I look at this....insanely large internet thing of today and I think..how did this happen?

But on a positive note, I also am curious about other people's fantasies too. What some artists have drawn really gives me some great little scenarios to play around with in my head. I hope I do the same for others.

When I usually fantasize about furry stuff (while roleplaying for example), I imagine my fursona and the other person's fursona engaging in the actions we're roleplaying about.
It's.. well, a way to get out and escape from reality. And people DO usually fantasize in the absence of other real people.
If someone were here with me, I wouldn't need to fantasize...

Well, as Jeffy already know this, I have a great imagination and a huge story I would like to have in paper, then in a comic and at the end a cg animation. I have the whole story in notes, and inside my head as well.

So yeah, I understand the feeling! ^_^

I fantasize, but never based on whether real people are around. My fantasies are for things that real people can't really provide. People can assist with some of them though.  My fantasies usually involve plushies, some fursuit stuff and certain smells. Having real people around can enhance those fantasies, so long as they are like-mind people who share in the same fantasies. Real people can never be a good substitute for plushies and the other things I prefer. All they can do is to enhance the experience by being of like mind and sharing in the fun.

One of the biggest let-downs for me in terms of fantasy is if someone wants to have sex that doesn't include my plushies or other fantasies. That's actually a turn off to me. Another letdown are when someone claims to share my fantasies and makes it sound as if they'd like to do things that focus on those fantasies, but when the time come, they just sit in front of a game system in their own little world. Plushies tend to be way more fun when it comes to doing what I enjoy.  I also lose interest if someone is around who doesn't enjoy the fantasies scent I like. For example, most people aren't into wetting in a fursuit or on a plushie. Without the scent of spooge or pee, it probably wouldn't be much of a fantasy for me.

I fantasize in the absence of real people because real people tend to ruin the fantasy. There are some exceptions of course. Most people are fantasy breakers, rather than fantasy makers. Honestly, if someone is into wetting and spooging on plushies or fursuits, and they truly enjoy the resulting smells, then they are likely to fuel my fantasies. Otherwise, They're better of looking elsewhere.  I'm weird and furverted though.  :)

I can only speak for myself of course, but I've fantasized all my life, despite so many real people being around me for most of it.
The quality of the company necessitated such a measure.

Well, I fantasize no matter the surroundings or circumstances! No one can see what's in my head unless I post it. :D

But yeah, despite my fulfilling relationship IRL, I have a strong emotional bond with some fictional characters that the real world can't replace! When I'm roleplaying with someone, they're not people anymore--even if they're not the greatest, I just mentally add that maybe that character's a bit shy or strange. Admittedly, the only thing that throws me off is bad grammar and spelling--then I just can't get into it. >.>

When I was young, I had many fantasies about turning into a dog, but one that could still think and talk like a person. Of course it wasn't until much, much later that I found furry... and that was much the same in some ways!

Fantasy is part of what got Phar and I together in the first place, and it's one of the things we most enjoy participating in together. I guess it works best if you both have a sort of fantasy "headspace" that you like to share, and both feel close to, and I find that it can be a very enriching part of a relationship if that's the case.

I fantasized practically all day when I was in school just to help me get through the boredom. Most of the time I imagined what would happen if X happened at that moment. Oh and lots of mind control lol

Well, imagination is what all progress is about, whether on a personal level or involving all of mankind. Without imagination, we'd be dead. Imagination only turns into escapism in the face of a society that wants to kill you mentally, and often enough also physically. Escapism is halfway between imagination and emotional death.

Brazil is also about this. The society Sam's living in has only left him the inside of his own mind to dream, and by having learned to restrict it to his own mind and without any tangible consequences in the real world, he's supporting the very system that's oppressing him.

Terry as the author and director phrases that as that Sam doesn't accept his own responsibility as for why his world is the way it is. Sam's mother Ida herself scolds Sam several times for "not accepting responsibility", but being a part of the system herself, she means a different kind of responsiblity, that of becoming one of the oppressors by accepting promotion to an accountable but entirely guilty level, the guilt of "only doing one's job" that requires both repression and exploitation of oneself and others. "Only doing one's job" means becoming a mindless, absurd machine, like we see many of them in the film.

Exactly because living in this system requires self-denial, repression and exploitation of oneself and others, basically a life of torture of all that is still more or less alive, everything is malfunctioning and out of control because tortured life is spasming in pain while being killed in order to be "straightened out". But the system projects these convulsions of its own making onto an outside menace, "terrorism", that it blames for why nothing works in this mindless, unimaginative world.
