Is This The Real Life?

Yes, I drew the avatar art featured here. No, I don't take commissions.

Kariana is my first real original character. I created her for a PBeM (Play By e-Mail) RPG my sister and our friend Kimi ran way back when (more years ago than I want to admit). She's an elf...or at least elf-like. I was going to invent a race for her, but I never got that far into the game. I have a tendency to abandon projects like that. Her design has changed significantly over the years. The only constants are blue hair, green eyes and elf ears. She's approximately 15-20 years old (it varies from moment to moment), and is both my youngest and oldest character.

"Greywers" comes from one of the many romanizations I've encountered of Zelgadis's last name (from the novels, manga, and anime Slayers). I started using it in chat rooms years ago when I couldn't get just "Kariana" as a nick-name, and it stuck. I can't imagine dropping or changing it now. It's her name.

Like all my Gaia avatars, Kariana also exists in my Sims 2 game. I even had a child-Kariana in Sims 1. Kariana also adventured briefly in Skyrim.

Please note I don't accept random friends requests. We must at least have a decent conversation before we can be friends. I know most of my Gaia friends in real life, or have spent many hours chatting with them (or they're my mules...). I don't like begging PMs, either. Take it to the Charity Forum. Feel free to comment as much as you like, but if you post something I find offensive, I will delete it.

Profile theme under construction, and intended for 1920x1080 displays (and a font size of 14, because I'm old now! Even with my glasses, blocks of small font are painful to look at from the distance of chair to monitor! I've also made alternate sizing for my phone, tablet, and laptop, but I can't check every device in the world). I'm working on figuring out theme CSS. Chrome-based browsers on Windows may display images too big. Supposedly this is due to DPI scaling settings. Mine are at 100%, which is supposed to fix it when it's wrong. They've never been anything else. But it's still wrong on Chrome/Opera/Edge on my desktop... It was most noticeable on my avatar art, which was all stretched and blurry. When I looked closer, I realized it was also affecting item icons and avatars. I had to set zoom to 82% for it to display correctly. I installed Zoom for Google Chrome and set up a default of 82% for my desktop resolution, so I don't have to keep changing it. Firefox just does it right without help. ETA: after updating to Firefox 104.0.1, the image-scaling problem happens in Firefox, too. And Zoom for Firefox wasn't an adequate fix, since it shrank the width of the page, not just the images. *Sigh* I had to mess with layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in about:config and my userChrome.css font sizes (since they were being shrunk by the PixelsPerPx adjustment) to compensate.

Can you tell I like teal, green and blue? ^_~ Also, I've set custom font families for the headings. My current favorite (Tangerine, used for the panel headings) is smaller than other fonts at the same point size, so I set it rather large. And, I managed to replace the "Personal Website" text with "deviantArt" (because that is not my "personal website!" I used to have one of those on my sister's domain, but we stopped paying for hosting years ago!) and still have the link work. YAY!
