  • *Deep breaths* OKAY
    Strap yourselves in, this is gonna be a long ride!

    Eariler today, I was just scrolling through Twitt like normal. And I see someone advertising a character for sale, and I had to have a second guess.
    "Is that who I think it is?". Even with a slight redesign, I could recognise her. I look at their Toyhouse and lord and behold, it was her!
    Who?

    Jasmine was one of my old but very cherished fursonas back in my earlier days. I used to go by many usernames (HorrorSympathy [ew], CrowsDrift, Dare-o, SleepyStag, MantiArt, Alienbicc and GuavaWerewolf). I had this reference done by XiamTheFerret way back in 2015.
    Unfortunelty back in 2017 or 2018 (I can't remember, unfortunatly PayPal history won't go that far back) out of desparation, I had to put her up for offers as I needed to pay vet bills for my budgie (who sadly passed away a couple of years ago).
    She was sold for $60 AUD.
    A few months later, I deeply regretted that decision. I felt so connected to her, so much more than any characters I've ever had (even my current ones), but at the time my budgie would have been in great pain if I hadn't. But I knew I couldn't just buy her back, that would be rude and selfish.
    Years went by, and every time I saw an Aussie Shepherd character, I felt that regret.

    Well today, I finally got my baby back. I don't know if anyone understands the happiness I feel. I feel like I got a part of me back.
    To some people, it shouldn't be that deep, but to someone like me who relies on fursonas and the fandom for individuality, validation, and self-expression, it is very important.

    NOW;
    I may get a new ref done for her. As much as I love this one, it's over 5 years old and it's shaded (which I know most artists dislike). I'd love to commission Xiam for a new one, but they don't seem to have comms open atm, which is fine! I'll find someone eventually!
    Is there a way to replace an image of already uploaded art? Or do you have to completely re-upload it?

    I asked that a couple months back, for now you have to completely reupload.

    I'm currently moving here from FurAffinity, so it might take me a while to get used to this site. But it looks promising so far! I really love all the profile personalisation options!
