I guess I never posted an intro so here we are!
I'm Fen! I'm a computer science student from France. At the time I'm writing this, I'm looking to apply for a Ph.D in my university. I'm also a furry and an artist, and I sometimes take commissions.
I am non-binary, probably agender but I still don't use this label for myself so I just stay under the non-binary umbrella. My pronouns are they/them, but he/him are fine too.
I can speak French, which is my native language, as well as English, proficiently. I am currently learning Mandarin Chinese (I am a beginner still), and I know bits of Italian and Ancient Greek.
Politics wise, I'm obviously very left-wing, but I don't know exactly the term for my personal beliefs. Probably leaning towards anarchism and communism.
My research domain is NVRAM-related coherency problems in HPC contexts.
Feel free to follow me and talk to me, some people told me I look inaccessible/intimidating but really I'm just a little ball of stress and anxiety!!
And my reference sheet is done! It's a lot of work but I think the workflow is good enough so that I can maybe take one ref commission in the future. It would be quite a bit more expensive though, seeing the amount of research, experimenting and time it takes. We'll see!
In any case, I really like what I did here, I finally have a ref for my fursona 🧡
even with fancy clothes I look like a clown, I hate it
and all the things I hate about myself are things that I will never be able to change: my overly large shoulders, my chubby face, my overly large forelegs
i just hate myself and how I look and the fact that everyone tells me I look good makes me feel like they're either lying to not tell me that I'm ugly or that I'm just a dumb fuck not satisfied with what I have
Fun linguistic facts: the old french word for fox was "goupil". The "Reynard the Fox" books were SUCH a hit in France that people started using "reynard" to refer to foxes, since it was usually believed that saying the actual fox noun would bring bad luck; this became to be the modern french word for fox: renard.
Imagine if the best selling book after the bible was Beastars and over the course of centuries people gradually forgot the word "wolf" and said "legoshi" instead
A dork french fennec. I do computer science and arts, and I love to learn languages and new stuff.
