Skye was someone I liked right from the first moment I saw her when watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. She struck me as interesting and since watching her grow she became one of my favorite Marvel characters, and perhaps my favorite female character in the entire Marvel universe (never mind the fact that my knowledge in the entire field is limited to the live-action movies and TV shows). I loved that she was good with computers and the way she acted, whether it was with Ward or Coulson, or anyone else on the S.H.I.E.L.D. team for that matter. Her relationship with Coulson and Mack is just the best. Her way of talking and different point of view on things is fun. I like that I can relate to her as well. We both have trust issues but when someone has our trust we love them fiercely. Also having powers is pretty cool.
I missed out on the chance to apply for Skye's fanlisting the first time around due to hesitation on my part, but I wasn't going to let the chance slip by again when the fanlisting became open for application again (I was quite surprised to be honest). I'm crazy excited to be running her fanlisting now. Coming up with a name was tough. I wanted something that described her powers but not in a super generic sort of way. I went through a few names until "Shockwave" popped into my head. Instantly I fell in love with the name and knew I was going to use it. I think it's awesome. The fanlisting was opened in January 11, 2016.
Currently we are on version 1 of the site which takes a somewhat different approach from what I normally do. I made the attempt to stray from my standard format and this was what I came up with. It was a pain in the ass to put together, resulting in much frustration. I thought I may not be able to get it to work, but I think I managed to so yay! The layout was made by me using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and coded by hand using Notepad. The image used in the layout was found using Google Images and the pattern used was found at Subtle Patterns. The fonts used are called Miriam Fixed and were default with my Dad's computer. Super huge thank you to Lethe and Emma for helping me figure out this cool pop-up script. ♥ Previous layouts used may be found at my layout archive.
