Why I like Soren.
I don't really remember how I came to like Soren, or if I even liked him to begin with. I think I did, but sadly my memory can be kind of pathetic when it comes to remembering long term things. But anyway, I like Soren because I find him to be an interesting character. He comes off as a bit of a jerk, plus his blunt manner of speech leaves little to be desired, but underneath that harsh exterior is a guy who is lonely. While I don't know if this is necessarily true or not I think Soren is someone who wants to be accepted for who he is, but because of the hate his kind gets he feels like it is impossible so he doesn't let anyone in and keeps it hidden from everyone. This is probably why he acts the way he does. Despite all this, though, Soren does have a soft side, especially when it comes to Ike, and he's willing to do basically anything for him. I think it's amazing. And yeah, that's about it. *cough*
About the site.
The Soren fanlisting I was originally rejected for, but I was later able to adopt it from Ami. That happened on September 7, 2009, and I couldn't be any more excited about it. Soren is one of my favorite characters from Path of Radiance and I'm happy to be running his fanlisting. The fanlisting was originally called "At Sunset" but when I adopted the fanlisting I renamed it to "Viento", which was the name I had given to my Soren Physical fanlisting, and then later shrine I was planning to do at the time, but eventually dropped. I think it was Spanish for "wind", but, uh, I don't remember anymore. At least it sounds cool, right?
Currently we are on version 3 of the site which is basically a redo of version 2. There were some things about the layout that didn't sit well with me so I decided to fix it up. I like it much better now. The layout was made by me using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and then coded by hand using Notepad. The image used was found at Fire Emblem Wiki and patterns used were found at Subtle Patterns. The fonts used are called Times New Romain which were default with my computer and textures used were found at various sites that are sadly no longer online. Previous layouts used may be found at my layout archive.
Here you'll find all fanlistings currently affiliated with Viento. If you are interested in being one then feel free to contact me. Fire Emblem related fanlistings only please.
