Ok, so I don't want to make this journal super long and ranty, but the long and short of this, is that soon, my Inkbunny username will no longer be BarberhsopWolfy. I know, I know, I will have to give up my fond nickname of Barby, but it's something I've been thinking about doing for a while.
Ever since I started getting more involved with the furry community on InkBunny, (especially since I've started drawing) I feel like I've slowly started becoming somebody who the username "BarbershopWolfy" doesn't reflect accurately anymore. I made that username in highschool, when I sang in a Barbershop quartet, and back when I thought begin writing stories involving the misadventures of some characters who sang in a quartet (naturally), and that project never got off the ground (also naturally).
Back then, I had a completely different fursona too, not like I had gotten any art of him. My current fursona sort of evolved out of meeting my new friends here on IB, my first REAL group of furry friends. People I genuinely enjoy "hanging out" with, albeit mostly through a computer screen.
Especially with my new emerging niche in the fandom of being a fledgeling furry artist, I feel like BarbershopWolfy is more of something that feels like something you look at in your metaphorical high school yearbook, and think "Oh god, rembember when I used to have THAT username? Oh geez, was that silly..."
So, this journal is just to clear up confusion when the change finally happens, so that everybody will know who this new wierdo in their submissions page is.
So what's the new name? What am I gonna call myself now?
My new username will henceforth be RufusTheRed =D
So, it seems like there's a lot of confusion as to where my new name came from, cause almost everybody has asked. My fursona's full name since I got to InkBunny has always been Benjamin Rufus Walters, and is a Red Wolf (latin name, Canis Rufus). Although I've never put out any sort of "official" character sheet about my character, or even filled out my profile (which I should probably do), that has been my fursona ever since I came to inkbunny and started making the rounds on an every day basis.
So, yeah, that's where Rufus the Red came from. I still need to decide if I want my fursona to go by Benjy or Rufus now, but yeah. Confusion ovar, hopefully :B
