I think one of my best memories on deviantART was when I first joined the chat network, years and years ago x3
I was scared that I wouldn't be accepted, that nobody would like me and I'd either be ignored or chased away by others in chat. This led to me mostly sitting in rooms lurking - I'd watch/read as chat went by, but I rarely said anything.
Eventually, a few people reached out to me, and got me to talk and interact, and for the first time in my life, I felt really, truly accepted by others. I gotta say, that's a pretty awesome memory to have
[The canid anthro isn't based on anyone specific - I don't remember who specifically reached out to me at first and everything, so I just created a 'generic anthro' because it was the room #IamAnthro where I hung out and stuff, and where someone finally got me to talk]
