I Quit

I quit in august 2016.

skype: q.bornes (display name is Vars)
email: bornesfur at gmail
Iwaku: Vardoger

Put this info here dec 2016 after turning on an old tablet and finding myself auto-logged in and loading up gaia... Decided screw it. May as well update my profile.

I don't get your PMs. Email me if you want to talk. Tell me who you are on Skype if you add me.


Welp. I hope you have a large resolution. If not... Sorry.

Vardøger, also known as vardyvle or vardyger, is a spirit predecessor in Scandinavian folklore.

Stories typically include instances that are nearly déjà vu in substance, but in reverse, where a spirit with the subject's footsteps, voice, scent, or appearance and overall demeanor precedes them in a location or activity, resulting in witnesses believing they've seen or heard the actual person before the person physically arrives.

This bears a subtle difference from a doppelgänger, with a less sinister connotation. It has been likened to being a phantom double, or form of bilocation. In Finnish folklore, the concept is known as etiäinen.

About me IRL

[Last updated 23 April 2016]

I'm Vardøger or Var for short.
I was born in October 1987 and have done much with my life. I've traveled to 17+ countries, worked as a cashier, live-in nanny, graphic designer, (video) production assistant, stablehand, avionics tech, and fire/flood/hazmat first responder. I've illustrated 2 children's books and written a novel of my own.

I've lived in Japan, Georgia (USA), New York, Florida, Hawaii and on a US Navy ship (LHD). I have an Associates degree (200 cool in digital video production and a bachelors in general business administration (2016).

I've been editing fan-made music videos since 2002, costuming/cosplaying since 2001, and making simple websites since 2005. The most notable sites I've created are The Gaia Comic Website, GCD Points, and most recently (which is the only one in this list that is still active).

I'm extremely thankful and blessed to have such a varied life experience, and only hope to continue to experience all that the world has to offer.

My History on Gaia

[Last updated 23 April 2016]

I joined Gaia in January 2004 as Ziko and changed my name to [Q] that October. Throughout the years, I became a well-known regular of Barton Town, Computers & Technology, Gaia Community Discussion, and Profile Discussion. I also gained some notoriety in the GGN guilds with my Literate RP Guild The Crimson Ibis and my participation in the Gaia Community Sniper Game Guild, Captains Guild, and SCAS.

Somewhere between 2006 and 2008 the [Q] username began breaking Gaia, making it unuseable (read more about that here). I created a new account named Bornes, and by that time was really only posting in Lifestyle Discussion (now called Life Discussion) and sometimes the GCD and SCAS.

I joined the US Navy in 2009, where my Gaia (and general online) activity plummeted until 2012. I quit all the guilds and only posted in LD, specifically Transtastic (a trans support thread). At some point, I was a Forum Assistant under a side account named Greysond.

Late 2012 (around november) to 2014 I quit Gaia due to the Flynnflation and only came back some time in 2015 due to boredom. I still mostly only post in the LD.

In April of 2016, I changed my name from Bornes to Vardoger and changed a different, older mule account to Bornes to save the username in case I ever wanted it back.

Since 2004, I had a mostly permanent avatar. The avatar was red/black themed and always looked like my OC, Q (AKA Bornes). In 2016 I finally got tired of that and wanted to branch out, try different avatars and no longer feel like I was tied down to the name and theme.

Currently on Gaia

I was tempbanned for spamming the LD.

Pass this link around where ever you can and I'd advise also emailing a similar letter complaining about how LD is being run right now if you want to see some change.

It's reasonable to assume that the vast majority of the income comes from item sales.

zOMG was a money pit. The only time zOMG reached their target goal was at the end with the DMS pendents, earning $5,000.

But if it was the gift itself, then it's because I can't afford much (but do acknowledge good people).
Most of my gold goes to my Gaia Wife for her avatar.

No, it was a compliment and I was trying to be a nice guy.

Previously known as: [Q], Bornes
I used to be known as [Q]. Due to many problems (you can read about it by clicking the [Q] avatar) I changed accounts to Bornes.
Then, in 2016, I wanted to get away from being personally associated with the Q/Bornes character, so I changed my name again.
