PostSubject: *waves shyly* Hi everybody!   Sun Oct 16, 2011 8:01 pm

Hey guys! I'm Brooksky, and I'm simultaneously a newbie and an old-timer to both Paganism and furries. To explain: when I was little, I would pretend to be a dog and as I grew older, I continued to have a strong interest in anthro and quad animal characters. I also would use one of my dad's ashtrays and make "potions" with leaves and berries from the bushes in my backyard. I'd be very particular about how it was stirred and about "giving it back" when I was done, and I talked about a Mother, though when my dad asked if I meant my mom I'd tell him no, that I was referring to my "Mother, not Mommy". However, I ended up spending the rest of my developmental years in church and parochial school, so these days of making "magic potions" were forgotten.

I'd accepted that I was a furry a while ago. But it was only recently that I finally accepted something I knew all along: I am Pagan. I've had an interest in Paganism and Witchcraft for about 4 years now. I've been studying it, but due to my upbringing in Christianity I didn't feel comfortable saying that I was Pagan, and I read books in secret so no one would find out and outcast me more than I was (I was one of the few nerds in my high school). Now that I'm legally an adult, I feel a little freer to stand up for myself, and after much soul searching I feel like Paganism is still the path for me.

So, tl;dr: Hey everyone. I'm new. How are you? =3

Welcome to the circle friend ^^

I grew up kinda the same way. My parents are christian, and always went to church on sundays. I always hated church, and never felt right believing what they did. I finally recognized my true path when i was 16, but i hid it for over 4 years. Secretly practicing late at night when my parents had gone to bed. So i know how you feel, and im glad you have finally found the strength to follow your path. Good luck on your journey ^^

Thank you for the welcome. (I've been officially welcomed! *Fulttershy "Yay"* =P)

My parents are actually pretty open minded; I told my dad about my interest in Paganism when it first began 4 years ago, and he's accepted it ever since. My mom, however, has only recently accepted it. But it's great to not have to hide my Pagan books and things anymore! =D

Welcome ^.^ It's exciting to have you. I'm sure many of us can share similar experiences. My family is Christian and although they dont go to church I have still shied away from practicing around them, and suburban hell isn't the best place for outdoor stuff xP
