i had a dream last night that you finished updating your theme etc. and if that doesn’t say i spend too much time browsing your archive, nothing will

Omg… I am… so flattered that my blog was in your dreams! But also embarrassed bc it was about the long-awaited update! I am super flattered that you browse my archive that much, you’ve made my day for sure ;D

Ok, I really need to get that done…  I CHANGED THE HEADER JUST FOR YOU, ANON! TODAY! I took out the construction signage and gave the kitty a top hat. He is so dapper now. I’d like to keep him in the new layout somewhere and just change his hat/accessorize him on a regular basis… ANYWAY CONSTRUCTION CONTINUES, behind the screen, w/o signage!

The thing is, the new layout is currently… pastel grunge? More like just pastel. all lighter colors w/ a dark font and IDK how I feel about that. I’m resisting the transition. And my webmistress demands tags on the center bottom of posts and just… I LIKE THEM ON THE SIDE. Don’t you guys prefer them on the side? Like a side of French fries!

I think I need to stick with a similar color scheme and just make the layout more easily navigable. There won’t be fancy animated buttons or anything superfluous like that. 

The other obstacle(s) is that I have yet to write up this stuff (and yes, I could put temp pages up, but I’d rather unveil it all at once!): 

  • Nav page w/ all the really good links like “cut scenes.” “For RPers.” “Fanfic.” “Fanart Request,” and analysis/critique of VC so ppl can easily find that stuff. 
  • FAQ for stuff I am frequently asked, and you’d be surprised but I am asked similar questions alot, one common topic is the order in which the books should be read (#order of operations for VC), just as an example.
  • About – so I could make it perfectly clear how unofficial a VC blog this is! Idk how I’d feel about being officially affiliated or approved by AR in some way… I’d be honored but I’d also worry about how that might limit my freedom of speech/reblogging of things that are critical of VC. We’ll cross that bridge if we ever come to it, and I’ll of course let you all know.
  • a Rules page for RPing with my Lestat, so I don’t have to keep explaining to people why he can’t do legit threads with their muses when they reach out to have a legit thread with him. I feel bad turning ppl down but I just don’t have the copious free time needed to thread with everyone who wants to do so ;A;

Since it’s STILL under construction, I am open to ideas as to anything else you think should be on the blargh. Not to say I will include them but I’m open-minded ;]

blood splatter? I thought it was velvet?

Yeahhh no, my BG image was supposed to be like, 90′s grunge style, blood-spattered walls, velvet would be much classier… it’s such an eyesore.

I can’t promise the update will happen this weekend but it’s definitely in the works.
