Some of these questions are becoming downright ridiculous. Is my gender really that ambiguous? I’ll keep this FAQ post for now and delete it later if no more questions come in. I don’t like FAQs much anyway - it’s a useful kind of pain, see. I don’t like them for the reason that if your FAQ is too well filled out, people start losing material to make conversation with. And when people make their FAQs and utilize a rude tone of typing, I get turned off and don’t bother reading. #sensitive stranger
- Are you a boy or a girl?
I’m a girl!
- What country do you live in?
I’m inconspicuously Canadian.
- What program do you use to edit/make gifs?
I use Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended, and I capture frames using KMPlayer. I used to use VLC player, but I decided that the KMPlayer was more aesthetically pleasing so… um.
- How did you make your gifs?
Eh, I don’t want to get into this too deeply. When people ask me this question I reply privately and direct them to someone else’s tutorial. In a nutshell, I use continuous screen capture in KMPlayer (CTRL+G), then load the files into a stack using Photoshop. After, I open up the Animation window and choose to make my layers into frames. I then reverse the order the frames are in (because they load backwards), change the delay to 0.13 seconds, and after proceed to edit it however I want to. When I’m done, I save it for Web & Devices. Since tumblr has partially uncapped the size limit for gifs these days, I don’t really try to reduce the colours - though I make sure it’s under 700kb so that I don’t make people’s dashboards slow.
- Where do you get your textures?
slayground, vert-gazon, I have some textures that I don’t know the sources of, sorry.
- Do you take requests?
I only take them if I’ve asked for them (odd eh), and even then I hardly get any of them done…
- What’s your theme?
I change themes all the time so it’s kind of hard to say. My current one, though, is by polinomial. The theme I’ve had that garnered the most questions is one by Abir… who doesn’t have a theme page right now.
- Who asked you out?
I don’t know why I find this question so much but… hey, you’re curious about my non-existent love life. I understand that. I got asked out once this year and twice back in 2011. All of them were rejected, but I am proud to say my relationship with the three of them remained friendly.
- How do you make your side images circular and have borders the same colour as your background?
The circles with Sasuke and Naruto (sigh… feelings) are rendered with Photoshop. I make an elliptical marquee selection thing, invert it, and fill the selected area with my background colour. It’s pretty easy to figure out by yourself if you exercise your creativity.
- Why is your blog so messy?
Even though I’ve only gotten this message once I feel it still needs to be addressed to adequately prevent accusations of disorganized blogging. Personally, I think my blog is pretty neat for a personal blog. It’s fandom-based, but “personal blog” really does mean that there will be text posts aside from pretty pictures for your reblogging pleasure.
- Where do you download your Naruto episodes?
I used to download from anivoid, but now I download torrents from animetake.net (for recent episodes). I don’t download anime episodes to watch them, I can watch episodes streamed.
- Can I join your Naruto/xxxHOLiC family?
Once upon a time, there was a fad on tumblr about families. This fad has come and left my blog. I’m very sorry, but I’m keeping my families as they are.
- GODDAMIT KEYI WHERE THE FUCK HAVE YOU BEEN???
EVERYWHERE (but not tumblr) MUAHA
- Can you send me At the End of All Things?
For sure, but I’ll need an email address. If I do end up sending it to you (which could take a while I admit), you’ll have to swear on all your precious things that you won’t re-distribute it or claim as your own work.
- Did you draw the picture of Itachi at the top of your blog?
No, I didn’t, the picture was drawn by the artistically blessed Lily. She removed herself from the internet a few years ago, but some of her works are still floating around on zerochan/photobucket/individually maintained sites.
If your question isn’t here, ask it, by all means!
