Nightbringer

Domain

As my home on the web, Nightbringer.net is my site collective. It links and houses every site I currently run. My favorite kind of sites to visit and make are character shrines, analytical tributes to characters, and as such, that is the majority of what you will find here. I have other types of sites, however: a personal blog (soon!), a fansite to my favorite actress, and fanlistings. The latter are addicting. I made a collective for them because I can't control my urges.

I've been building websites since the late 90s, but I didn't become serious with the hobby until 2007 when I made my first character shrine to a Final Fantasy character. Since then, I've accumulated quite a few, as you'll discover when you explore my network. I prefer to properly maintain the sites I own before making new ones, so I'm pretty slow when it comes to debuting new sites, but I will absolutely make more.

Nightbringer.net is not my first domain, but I plan for it to be my last. I like this name, and I really don't like moving my sites. Previous domains I've called home are: dragonzord.net, sharkboy.org, sinspawn.net, dogged.org, and walkthesky.net.

I first heard the word Nightbringer when I played Final Fantasy X. It's one of Tidus' weapons. While that was enough to draw me to it, the word Nightbringer is also used in a variety of other science fiction, horror, and fantasy TV shows, video games, comics, and movies. Nightbringer just looks and sounds cool on its own, too, when looked at away from fandom. The words together completely suited my network. Nightbringer is pretty, but dark, and I love that. Since I tend to like a lot of dark stories and characters (Parasyte or Battlestar Galactica, anyone?), my sites are definitely at home under this name.

Nightbringer.net is registered by NameCheap and is hosted with A Small Orange. I have been with both for years and I have no intention of leaving them anytime soon. ASO in particular has amazing customer service, and their packages are extremely affordable.

All of my layouts across the network were made in Adobe Photoshop CS5, and hand-coded by me in Notepad. Previous layouts for all of my sites can be viewed at my layout archive Tumblr, In the Rearview.
