Hello, even thought I´ve made an acount here a while ago, this is my  introduction.

I´m usually known in online circles as Ghaslty  X>.   Pronouns are he/they

I´m from Portugal, a total 90s kid (but only first got on the internet in 2000)
I´ve always wanted to try and have a site on my own, but felt intimidated too :C so imagine the irony of me finally get the courage to make one in a era where GeoCities is dead and everyone is on social media. But hey, better late than ever.

But lately I´ve been feeling a bit of frustration with the online world today. It´s not just the lack of privacy, but how it was built to profit over vitriol. Even fandoms spaces!
Lately it´s getting worse where someone will send you death threats because they don´t approve your ship for "moral reasons", as if the flamers from 2000s weren´t bad enough, but at least you knew it was for petty reasons back then.

So I decided to take a break and actually build a space just from me without the drama.
Which is why I created creaturefeature
I think it´s supposed to be a love letter to my favorite movie monsters, weird animals and whatever else caught my interest.
And I´ve been having fun making it.

so, thanks for having me   ;D

Hey Ghastly, I checked out your website and I love it. It's cute with a creepy edge. Adore the virtual creatures section. Great job!

Hi, belated welcome to the forum  :D I modded your post to fix the link! This is a cool site, I like how the different sections have different designs, it bright but readable, I think you can go a long way with this site!

Also I signed the guestbook! (The back to your website link is broken there too, you gotta remove the www.)  ;)

Thanks! Cute with a creepy edge? That is an interesting way to describe it I like it. i wasn´t sure what theme to go for.
also I used to be big on collecting pixelated pets, back when I was still using forums heavily. So I decided to brush my old accounts and put them on page dedicated to them.
