Coolwater Codes

(This is a thread from Mizahar's fantasy role play forums. Why don't you register today? This message is not shown when you are logged in. Come roleplay with us, it's fun!)

Here's the place to find information on 'How do I do that?' when it comes to creating avatars, signatures, or even working with the bbc code. There are help files for codework for both the main board forums and the lore sections. There are threads advertising players that are willing to create signatures for other players. Please feel free to discuss technical issues, photo cropping, suggest new bbc code, or get help from players and admins on things you want to do. This forum includes posts, wiki technical aid, avatar art, character sheet art, signature work, and all things visual when it comes to Mizahar.

Coolwater Codes

Hello all!

This is going to be where I post all my pretties. I do mostly boxcodes, although signatures and avatars are available upon special request. The rules are as follows:
  • Must have 50 posts (because of the rule that lets you change character design under 50 posts) unless you're a blooming ST account.
  • Be patient. Requests do not take precedence over my active threads.
  • Please do not modify my codes without asking. I can do all kinds of changes for you, if you just ask.
  • Codes with [Free] in the title are up for grabs, and can be claimed at any time, with priority going to those who have not had a code from me yet, and then on a first-come first-serve basis.
  • Post requests here or send them to me in a PM using the request form below.

Code: Select all
Character Name: If I should include a name, what do you want it to be?
Type of Code: Signature, Boxcode for IC or OOC, a grading template, etc.
Style: Don't like blocky or curly fonts? Want specific colors, or a certain mood? Want curved corners or a gradient on your boxcode? Put that here.
Pictures/Sayings: If you have a specific picture, link it here. Generic ideas (such as "picture of a balloon" are welcome, too). Sayings can be whether or not you want a name included, or other quotes/quips to be put on the code.
Extra Comments: Anything you want to say that didn't fit into a category above.

Coolwater Codes

Postby Aladari Coolwater on July 7th, 2016, 8:05 pm

Below are examples of boxcodes I have made. Unless otherwise noted, these are also free to claim.

Pink Stars :
“When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.”
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet



Jay Bird :
Image
“We ate the birds. We ate them. We wanted their songs to flow up through our throats and burst out of our mouths, and so we ate them. We wanted their feathers to bud from our flesh. We wanted their wings, we wanted to fly as they did, soar freely among the treetops and the clouds, and so we ate them. We speared them, we clubbed them, we tangled their feet in glue, we netted them, we spitted them, we threw them onto hot coals, and all for love, because we loved them. We wanted to be one with them. We wanted to hatch out of clean, smooth, beautiful eggs, as they did, back when we were young and agile and innocent of cause and effect, we did not want the mess of being born, and so we crammed the birds into our gullets, feathers and all, but it was no use, we couldn’t sing, not effortlessly as they do, we can’t fly, not without smoke and metal, and as for the eggs we don’t stand a chance. We’re mired in gravity, we’re earthbound. We’re ankle-deep in blood, and all because we ate the birds, we ate them a long time ago, when we still had the power to say no.”
― Margaret Atwood



White Horse :
Image


“We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.

We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love's light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.”
― Maya Angelou

This box will need a significant amount of text to work, lest the horse photo overlap the bottom of the box.



Newspaper :
Image
“He was the crazy one who had painted himself black and defeated the world.

She was the book thief without the words.

Trust me, though, the words were on their way, and when they arrived, Liesel would hold them in her hands like the clouds, and she would wring them out like rain.”

― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

“Not cry. Fly.
“I can’t fly,” Bran said. “I can’t, I can’t…”
How do you know? Have you ever tried?
The voice was high and thin. Bran looked around to see where it was coming from. A crow was spiraling down with him, just out of touch, following him as he fell. “Help me,” he said.
I’m trying, the crow replied…
The crow took to the air and flapped around Bran’s hand.
“You have wings,” Bran pointed out.
Maybe you do too.
Bran felt along his shoulders, groping for feathers.
There are different kinds of wings, the crow said…
Bran was falling faster than ever. The grey mists howled around him as he plunged toward the earth below. “What are you doing to me?” he asked the crow, tearful.
Teaching you how to fly.
“I can’t fly!”
You’re flying right now.
“I’m falling!”
Every flight begins with a fall, the crow said. Look down.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Coolwater Codes (For Efforvescent)

“I'm dreaming dreams,
I'm scheming schemes,
I'm building castles high.
They're born anew,
Their days are few,
Just like a sweet butterfly.
And as the daylight is dawning,
They come again in the morning.

I'm forever blowing bubbles
pretty bubbles in the air
They fly so high
Nearly reach the sky
And like my dreams
They fade and die
Fortune's always hiding
I looked everywhere
I'm forever blowing bubbles
Pretty bubbles in the air"

- James Kendis, James Brockman, Nat Vincent, I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles

“The cracks grew over him like vines, faster and faster. At first he bucked, whinnying metallic screeches. Then he gradually stilled, looking up at me with frightened glass eyes.
He was growing.
New, molten glass leeched out between his fissures, cooled and hardened only to crack again and make room for more liquid glass. The gears inside him moaned and creaked, and metal filings gathered at the base of his transparent stomach, only to fly up again and form more joints and chains and gears. Black smoke poured from his nostrils.
Soon he was the size of a large dog, then a man, and still he grew and grew until he towered over my bed, as big as any plow horse I’d ever seen. Glass dripped down his flanks like sweat, a few rivulets still glowing with molten heat.”
― Betsy Cornwell, Mechanica

Coolwater Codes (For Izuyani, Dark)

Postby Aladari Coolwater on September 28th, 2016, 3:33 am

This one is a little darker than I was planning, but I really liked the image. If you don't end up using it, that's totally fine. There's another coming with a color scheme more to your request.

Image


“Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately Raven of the saintly days of yore;
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door—
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door—
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
“Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,” I said, “art sure no craven,
Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore—
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore!”
Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”"
― Edgar Allan Poe

I have my dark side. You have your dark side. From the second that we have a brain, there are things that are not right - we are human beings with all these illusions and complexes and everything. That's attractive to me.
