HistoryJade*Island has been on the web since 1999, and was my very first website. It was originally hosted on Dencity.com for its first 3 layouts, then was moved to Musogato.com in early 2002. It has been and always will be dedicated to my fan-works of my various favorite series. Video games, anime, tv shows... If I make something that's based off a copyrighted idea, you will probably find it here. ^^; Reason behind the site's name? My name is Jade, and I grew up living on an Island. Creative, I know.
She who is JadeAs for me, I am early 30s, female, and Capricorn. I've lived in Hawaii my whole life, and enjoy drawing, writing, crocheting, and doing webdesign. Once upon a time I dreamed of turning this into a career, but it looks like it will be staying a hobby for now.
Layout InfoThis is currently the 8th layout. The header image is from the official German players guide for The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (scan from Zelda Legends), though I recolored it in PSP7. I really loved Link's Awakening and have always kinda felt a special connection to the game and Koholint Island especially.
Previous layouts include the 4-and-a-half year reign of layout #7 (left pic), which used frames and cute little sprites for navigation. Before that included layouts #6 or #5 (middle pic) which only had subtle image differences I think, and lasted for maybe a year? Layout #4 (right pic) introduced J*I to being hosted on Musogato.com, and lasted less than a year. I'm afraid I don't have any records of what Jade*Island looked like in layouts #3 through #1 back when it was on Dencity, and since I can't remember the old url, I can't look it up on the Way Back Machine archive. :( I believe it used left-sidebar frames though, and used an ocean wave tile background. There apparently was also a dark purple layout for Halloween, which used this hilariously awful MS Paint pumpkin-monster I apparently "drew". XDD Looking back is funny stuff. *sniffle*
