Part of Being a Friend Is Being a Good Confidant

Mar 23, 2015 1 Comment

Author: Papabear, I’m feeling a lot of guilt over “Facebook-stalking” a very dear online (furry) friend of mine.

Falling in Love with a Fursona

Feb 05, 2015 2 Comments

Author: Hi Papabear, My name’s Bluefluffy. I’m a young gay fur and I kinda fell in love with a fursona—not with the person himself, just with the fursona, and, more specifically, one picture of him. But it’s quite useless to be in love like that. I can’t hug him, and so it’s pretty hard, but […]
