For a while i've had this 'aspect' (though for the furries out there, 'fursona' is a good synonym for it) of me that I have for years interpreted as being 'a herm part fox part bunny' type thing. I've never had her drawn (tho i've requested it before) but partially this is because I could never get the right visual for it. Only even partially in my head, and in descriptions, and I made a close looking avatar on Second Life.. I never really got it.
I always called this fursona "Miranda".
Until today. I fell across an image of a species called Puca. Now I have heard of pooka and its various ilk, but this species is .. well .. It matches Miranda so closely that I've decided that this is what Miranda (has been/is/should be).
So from now on Miranda shall be a Puca, which really doesn't come with much changes to her. At some point (soon) I will have a commission done of her, but the most major change is just in calling her Puca instead of foxbunny (any funny/box jokes will be summarily terminated)
On Furryfaire I presented Miranda as a part Myrix part Lapix (Rymnian fox and bunny race hybrid) to fit her into that world. On pokemon MUCKs, she was always a herm buneary/lopunny. But I think getting a fix on what she's supposed to be, she needs to strike out on her own and be one of these.
On another note, the reason I call these things 'aspects' is because I don't really have characters. I don't really get any enjoyment out of creating a character I don't relate to, then playing it. Instead, parts of me, maybe parts of spirit, or personality, or whatever, decide that they relate to something. Usually when I create a character, I get bored of it inna few weeks and it doesn't last. But an 'aspect' is something that wants to exist, and the characters I create that last are based on them.
Things that are a part of me, an aspect wanting representation, they do last, they get refined, and have a life of their own after a while.
This is strangely enough one of those things. and i'd like to thank
