The Hamster Hoax by Neomae The Hamster Hoax by Neomae

*cough cough* ... *points at the submission date*

I have to confess that actually this was an april fools joke ^^°

Normally I don't take much notice of April 1st - actually I often forget about it completely. But this year I came up with this little hoax with 2 friends of mine and we thought it could be fun. ~taibugreylion and ~PanHesekielShiroi did an awsome job playing their pranks on SGP :D
I really hope I did not offend anyone! I'm really impressed of how much support and understanding you all gave me! This means really much to me, although this was just a hoax. :heart: :heart: :heart: Thank you very much!



Gargme 5

OK... not really a gargme but a me^^

I already wrote a post about it in my livejournal so I will simply copypaste it here:


Hello friends!

Today I am going to share with you what I was thinking through over and over again for the last few weeks.
Some of you may have already noticed that I found more and more differences between what you would imagine a gargoyle and my personality. Infact for me it started with the huge paradox that a gargoyle is a flying or at least gliding beeing and I am terribly scared of heights and flying. At first I only found this fact kind of amusing, but in time it became some sort of shadow of a doubt. Subconciously I started to compare my personality with a gargoyle more and more and stumbled across more and more paradoxes. For example the fact that a gargoyle is more like a wild, strong animal of prey and I could never see myself fighting or hunting like that. I am more the shy and sensitive type that is easily scared and prefers retreating over fighting.
So I became more and more unsure whether or not the gargoyle is the species I realy belong to. What I didn't know was what species I could belong to instead. I thought of a whole lot of possibilities but the answer came to me more by accident.
Some of you may already have noticed that I am a huge fan of the movie "Bolt". To be honest, what I found most adorable about the movie where the cute dog and the realy awesome cat. I didn't take much interest in Rhino but for some weird reason I felt more and more familliar with the little guy and his fellow hamsters. At first I thought this can't be true becuase I never was in any way interrested in hamsters. Yet I still could'nt get rid of the weird feeling. After a realy hard time of considering and reconsidering and feeling and trying to understand I finally had to admit to myself that maybe - although i never felt a link like that to this species and I never considered to be part of it - that's infact what I realy am.

A hamster.
Neo, the hamster. o.o

I know this sounds weird and believe me it sounds wierd for me too, especially after I "was" a gargoyle for so many years. But that's how it is and I can't do anything about it.

If you look at my new fursona you will notice that I couldn't let go of my gargoyle-self completely. I kept my colours, I have a wing-shaped marking on my back and my teeth resemble an animal of prey's teeth. Honestly I don't know whether this is just for sentimental reasons or if its the truth. This whole situation is very new for me although it is what feels right the most at the moment and i guess, the more I get used to my true self, the more I will find out what I realy do look like.
I hope you can accept me the way I am now. My personality didn't change at all - only the way I look.

To my friends on DA: although I am not a gargoyle anymore, I still admire these beautifull beeings an I'm (of course ;) ) still a huge fan of Brooklyn and I will keep drawing both.

I guess that's all have to tell you at the moment.

Big hugs from your little hamster

That is so cute. ^_^
I can totally understand that.
No point in using a persona that contradicts who you are.
I think this new hamster avi is absolutely adorable. =D

And I think it's really funny and cute that you're part ferret, but it only shows in the teeth. XD

I'm glad you've found a creature you can relate to more. I have to admit that finding something I see my own self as is hard, which is why Silvolf is a wolf but has various other forms like cats and dragons.
I love hamsters, they're small but they're pretty brave. They can be grumpy at times but they're pretty smart too. I have had three hamsters and they all had their own personalities.
I like the wing design on your back and the red tipped ears. Now I just need to get used to seeing you as a hamster lol!
