And still yet more Internet Fauna by Allison-beriyani And still yet more Internet Fauna by Allison-beriyani
Welcome to yet another edition of internet fauna! Today we have some of the more common species of social networking sites!

Previous:[link]
Next: [link]

Critiuqer: This shy creature is a symbiont to most internet species, grooming and removing anything negative from whatever the other user might proffer to them. most critiquers are quite gentle, but some can be very harsh, and depending on the trouble an standard user is having, both can be very helpful. Originally thought to be related to the hacker, further studies have proven that this is merely a case of analogous features (similarities in unrelated organisms due to similar environment- like how sharks and dolphins looks similar, but aren't related related), and that critiquer's closest relative is the Go-To.

Rage-Bomber: The natural predator to critiquers and the friendly Got-To. This strange animal actually enjoys being enraged, and seeks out opportunities to be offended and explode it's volatile hindquarters. While this does result in tremendous butthurt for the Bomber, it's target prey is usually decimated, and the much smaller rage-bobmer can happily feed on them.

Hovering Commenter: This creature wobbles the fine line between symbiant and parasite. The hovering commenter likes to follow around assorted other fauna and comment on everything the creature might do. "that oatmeal sure looks tasty!" is a common refrain. When the user responds to the commenter, it feeds it attention, and the Commenter uses it's suction-cup like tail to latch onto the user. while often irritating, the positive-feedback-loop of attention can be very helpful to certain lonely fauna, like Role-Players and Harmless Creepers.

Ban-Evader: One of the most despised pests on the internet, this warty little creature is the bane of moderators everywhere. while incredibly fragile, this creature has adapted to the Moderator's lethal banhammer by "deactivating" it's existence in that particular instance of space-time, and re-appearing elsewhere. It's greatest predator is the Common Internet Troll, who relishes the chase of this creature, and is quite adept at finding it when it vanishes. Some Moderators (which normally hunt trolls) have gotten clever, and selectively cull the trolls in their domain, leaving the ones that are particularly good at hunting ban-evaders alive to breed.

Fetishist: A curious breed of Common Pervert that has become enamored of some object or behavior not normally within the realm of sexual behavior. some colonies of fetishists have become so vast that thier obsessions have now become "normal". Generally harmless, even if their behavior makes one never look at balloons the same way again...

Cutievore: One of the most common herbivores on the internet the Cutievore lives for one thing only: the consumption of all things cute. Pictures of baby animals, flowers, sappy poems, LOLcats, lacy things with bows, fluff fanfiction, knitted paraphernalia, all will go down the gaping gullet of this beast. Since consumption does not equal destruction on the internet, the Cutivore is one of the great fertilizers of the Internets. It's demand for all things cute causes vast plains to be seeded with such items, which create a safe haven for many other internet users, who seed the area with more intellectually stimulating content, enriching the environment until creatures like Trolls and moderators can survive. The only danger a cutievore can create is when it sticks it's demanding maw into a tube too small to provide enough content, thus cloggin it, and creating a warp in the delicate fabric of the internet. Fortunately, they will easily move thier maws if presented with pictures of baby ducks or suchlike off to the side, in a larger tube.

The knitted TARDIS exists, but for some reason, she has not shared it with the internet.
It comes with knitted 9th, 10th, and 11th doctors, a Dalek and Cassandra.

Oh man, these stuff..they're amazing. :iconclapplz: I'm thinking of making my own version, now..but probally with much less stuff. Just sayin'. (And I probally won't post it on dA either since I usually am lazy.)

As for species.. I have a fetish for yaoi and vore (non-digestion I prefer) and cross-overs of things such as Halo and Skyrim (speaking of which, I'm working on a Halo 4/Skyrim series atm.) What species would that be? Also, is there such a thing as hybrid species? (Troll/Critiquer for example)

Sorry for the super-late reply, life's been hectic for me lately.

If you want to make you own version, I just ask that you call it something different than Internet Fauna (trying to maintain a copyright). But if you do make them, I'd be thrilled to see them!

A single user can be many many species, adapting as it travels through the internet, like how a person is a student at school, a child at home, and an asshole on Call of Duty. The species are psychological roles, not full time identities.

If I can pester you with a question: What, exactly, is the appeal of vore? I can understand most fetishes, but vore just leaves me stumped.

:iconchiefmageddon:
chiefmageddon Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Olay, thanks!

And I don't really know what the main appeal of vore is. Many people have their own appeals, but I guess it would be something being eaten by something and then ending up in a soft slimy stomatch. :shrug:

In fact, there was a case last year in Germany where through the newspaper a fetishist looked for someone to eat. And found them.

I'm not kidding.

A common affliction among Cutievores, as baiting/titling a post with a cute topic, and then filling said post with some sort of twisted madness is one of the favorite hunting techniques of the Common Troll.

It's funny to think i am probably a Cutievore. Many of my friends say I think everything is cute, which is true. If I was a cutievore, everything would be so clogged up!

A idea could be: The Unknown. This creature seems to know nothing and is very shy. They cannot tell if something they create is cute, and are used to living on next to nothing. Are usually friends with Cutievores, too see if the items they create are cute or something related.

Or something that is separate not matter what. Like, the same species but are always always different.

Hmm. What about the Watcher? A small, shy species that does what it name implies and watches from afar. It gains its nourishment from the enjoyment of others, a sort of parasite, but doesn't affect the host in any way. It is closely related to the lurker, but is more likely unable to be noticed unless the specific site has a viewable guest list. If contacted, they are either most likely to disappear or actually talk, albeit very shyly. It enjoys watching others glean joy, no matter who they are watching. They are incredibly reserved as seen by their privacy settings. THeir main habitat is the YouTube Jungle, not really a surprise. The only way to really spot one is to find a Like or a Fav in which you can't really trace to an original owner.

A side note. They are mostly shy, but they play a vital role in keeping the internet safe for the younger creatures. Whenever a threat pops up, they respond in either two ways. A small, practically unheard private message to a local Mod, pointing it in the direction of the threat, or it will make itself known by creating a large ruckus to alert other local creatures to point out the perpetrator. By the time the threat is neutralized, the Watcher is back to watching from afar and won't step forward to take any credit. As stated before, it likes when it sees others happy. But if no one takes credit for the action, a diva or white knight will, just to satisfy their hunger for attention.

I must say, this series has to be one of the most entertaining things I've seen in a long while. If I can provide suggestions I would love to see your take on gamers - I would love them to look like tropical birds, since there are so many different types of gamers and so many Memetic Mutations from the gaming community that for their appearance I can only think of a cross between various species of parrots and Darwin's Finches. :+devwatch:

I actually have a problem portraying gamers as I lack the co-ordination to play most games (unless I play it as "five minutes to kill yourself" but that doesn't really count) and would rather spend my time drawing anyway. maybe you could help me with identifying some of these exotic creatures? I know a few by reputation- spawn camper, modder, screaming brat and the elusive "gamer girl", but what else is there?

FiftyFootWhatever Featured By Owner May 25, 2012
Looking through TV Tropes, I'm coming across some of the more exotic ones. Aside from the standard gamer which lives in groups called Clans ([link]), we also have the Cross-Player (avatar is opposite gender of player), the Demo Creator ([link])... Oh, and the Griefer, a species of Troll that is adapted to preying on gamers by blending in among them and then attacking them for lulz and free stuff. :giggle:

But you can't forget the indie player, the kick-back(plays everything on easy level, no exception), its rival the die hard(the same, but does it with the hardest level), the solo, the team-player, the tattle-tale(or the reporter, same thing), and the super-fan gamer(will state that the entire series of a specific title is the best thing in the world, even if it wasn't even good until the third or fourth installment and will rage at you for quite some time until you either agree or leave. Theres is a large chance of it following you and continue to berate you or downside you to others until you agree.) Lots of stuff there if you actually need it.

Critiuqers are very huggable, and they enjoy the affection- just be careful that your skin is thick enough if they decide to nit-pick!

Babies are cute too. Then they start screaming and puke all over you.
As much thought as I've put into this series, I'm really flying by the seat of my pants on how someone can be a cutievore on one site, and a troll on the next, as well as the apparent hybrids.
When I come up with a vaugely-cohesive theory, You'll see it!
