Ah, similar to my "kindofdoon", then. That's been around for about 6 years.

I was sitting around in study hall back 10 years ago and came up with the concept for this evil carebear stomping around the clouds shaking his fist at the other bears.
That's awesome!  I have been in love with the Care Bears since I was tiny, so your username popped out at me. :D 

Before I was Haids1987 (between the ages of 12 and 13 ;]), I was actually CareBeargrrl1987.  But I've been Haids for so freaking long now it's ridiculous.  If you Google Haids1987 you'll see many, many websites I'm registered on. :P

LOL, yeah, I'm a pretty open book. XD

Ugh, you have no idea!  I was so bummed out.  I used to take the book to bed with me and read it like a bedtime story.  It was sooooooo depressing to see it covered in black mold.  :'(

Hello All!

Um? Yah! It's me Shades! (Hops up and down waving at everyone.)

My it HAS been a long time. Over a year. Last time I checked on TSL the whole place was shut down but the forums. I"m glad to see TSL Resurrected and so many familiar faces. The ever lovely Koko (Love the new pic), Tess (AARRRGG!), and Kimmie, as well as the ever valiant Dark Daventry and Delling.

Hopefully I'll be around more to see more of you.

Hello Koko, Haids, and Delling.

Well right now I'm doing some video editing for the Harry Potter Archive project that I'm helping with.
http://preserv.22web.net/
I've been reading a lot of Dresden Files books. I'm now on book 10.

I'm also rereading some other books, Forgotten Realms The Finder Stone trilogy, to gather information for a story idea I'm outlining, thought I have no creative writing capability to write it. :-(

If anyone has any Harry Potter related stuff recorded that you can donate let me know.

I think I just drooled a little bit! Thank you SO MUCH, Doon! Where did you find the font?!

(PS--I'm on my iPod now, I'll put it in my sig when I have access to the lappy. :))

The fonts are from KQVI (the capital letters are a different font than the lower-case letters). I extracted both from the game's resources, though I'm not sure where capital letters come up in-game.

Additionally, the border is from KQV's text dialogues, the picture of Alexander is from TSL, and the background is the opening screen from KQVI.

Hm, I just thought: I would really like to have a KQV/KQVI dialogue font for use on modern computers. For the banner and for my TSL Comedy Contest video, I manually copy/pasted and arranged the letters, but obviously that only works for a small amount of text. Having an actual font would be great. I'm going to make that when I get a chance.
