Also I just really, really like the color/element/word silver and have a thing for putting in "y"s for othyr vowyls. I dunno why.Heh. Nostalgia blast.
Well, my real name is not chrislink as you can guess, but Christopher. I don’t like it so I use Chris. Why chrislink you ask? The answer is… it’s actually a good question. Actually, it’s a nickname I use on other forums, and as I’m forgetful, I used it again here.
My avatar, huh? There’s actually a bit of a story behind it. So, good people, brace yourselves for a tale of adventure, magic, tragic destiny…
Once upon a time, I created a blog. I was my first shot at writing regularly. Not a very successful one at that, but that’s another story. So, this blog needed a banner. A great one.
Wait, no. That’s actually the opposite. I had made a banner that needed a blog. Whatever. When I was studying editing, I also started learning how to use Photoshop and now, you could say that I’m an addict. Making banners, wallpapers, working on my photographs, you name it.
Anyway, during its one year of existence I changed my blog’s banner four times. The first one was crappy, the second one was good, the third one I liked (it lasted more than 4 months) and the last one I’m proud of. It took me some time to make it, but I’m happy with the results. So back to my avatar. The last banner I made is the first in a series. In the first one, I used a picture of Dead Like Me and a picture of Stargate’s city of Atlantis which I used again for the second one. After that, I wanted to use pictures of Battlestar Galactica. It took me hours to work it out, but I finally came with something decent, completely different from what I had in mind at first. Unfortunately, it’s height prevented from becoming a banner, so I made a wallpaper of it. And an avatar. This avatar.
So this picture actually has a meaning to me. It’s something I worked hard on, and something I created.
