Furry GPT-2: Interview with a Furry

After seeing the AI Weirdness post showing text generated by the GPT-2 neural network, I decided to try some of my own prompts.

Each document starts with a human-written prompt shown in bold, followed by computer-generated text. Everything that the computer generates is completely fictional and should not be taken seriously.

Interview with a furry

The term furry describes a diverse community of fans, artists, writers, gamers, and role players. Most furries create for themselves an anthropomorphized animal character (fursona) with whom they identify and can function as an avatar within the community. Some furries wear elaborate costumes or paraphernalia such as animal ears or tails, or represent themselves as anthropomorphic animals in online communities such as Second Life. Other furries are more anthropomorphized in such, and for the most part everyday, social situations.

WroteTheTP: How did you form the fandom?

Broadbent: Freddy grew up in Downtown Powell and maybe related to Catfish! I'm not sure about Nick's backstory, but I think Nick was my father's best friend and we were going to Disneyland when the first film took place. I had raised about 4 other people in the fandom and grew up idolizing furry characters. We moved to Orlando around 12 years ago, after I wasn't comfortable in San Francisco, seeing the furry world in the stands. After playing it down for a few years, I converted to getting involved with furry fandom we have growing into 2017, now that the desert and urban environments of the '90s are completely largely groomed for the pose, the personality and the scenes without constantly needing to officially interact with a character.

Broadbent: What I have been through influences and facets of fandom is just going through distinct threads. This might take years because my dad viewed me and Noni as just one of so many other unlikely friends who inspired me on a foreboding beach mission in upscale Seideman, Ala. Someone in my other fandom (or whenever children compliment me) and inspired me on the very first day in Walk You Shapes (2006), which is the patron book of the Fur cult at the Satiety Event at the 9th Annual Phoenix Fringe Festival. Hello Later, Puppies of Animmatch who I met back in 2013, the level of affection I received in this fandom was clear in numerous incarnations and has been to the hushed halls of my hoo boytip hut, home of a Stoned, over-burdened cod killer who and other puppeteers separate us from our own community. This is often accompanied with the vague feeling of cheerful evaluation and support: students able to provide action and insight into the world around me all too easily got stuck. The shooters and disembodied intelligence that creeps into people's "savvy" imaginations in so many real world contexts is constantly injured.

Seeing each other this way is liberating for me. Unlike many starting in late teens, I grew up being convinced that I could plan with almost anyone else on a Foundation level with very little commitment or room to go it alone. Instead, who has the room? I could
