new layout. (finally.)

fandom_chatfandom_chatfandom_chat

YAY. I have insomnia, so I might as well be constructive, yes? XD

This layout took many incarnations before I finally settled on one (relatively simple) solution. The code is by the fabulous grrliz @ thefulcrum (Her Fog, Her Amphetamine, And Her Pearls, specifically).

I had ideas to do all kinds of nifty bulletin board manips with rotating banners or an animated GIF. But I decided that wasn't my strong suit. My strong suit is color, shape, and type. It's my comfort zone. And the text? Well, it's what we ARE. We are text; it's how we convey our friendship and companionship to one another. But it means so much more to those of us who have fully experienced this place and couldn't imagine their life without it. :D

I submit it to you, in the hope that the fresh appearance we will help us continue to breathe life into this place.

And by the way - all those quotes? They're all YOU, people. Every single one. I sat here, laughing my ass off looking all of them up. Such memories. ♥

I love it! :D I completely agree with what you said about the text in the header. Without the chat text, it's just simply not the same!

LMAO! “We Be People!”

The only thing is that the “fandom chat” should be sort of transparent so I could read what's behind it *giggle*

YESSSS! That's you! So is "Caution: May not be suitable for minors or Republicans." That KILLS ME, woman! LOLOL.

You want I can copypasta the text here? Perhaps I shall post it separately for all so they can peruse it permanently. :D

I have the whole thing as a photoshop file, which I can save in separate layers! Did you want a PNG or JPG of it without the "fandom chat"? Or was it that you were trying to read the text behind it? I'm doing a separate post with all the quotes on it just so EVERYONE can have a laugh. XDDDDD

THANK YOU, LYSS. XDDDD <33333
