welcome to the links page. it's only a small sapling right now, but it will grow in time.

link back!

a little button, for people to link back with! i'm proud of how it looks. :D


neocities neighbours:

site desc
a very calm, blue art site. some introspective articles about social media and some nice paintings.
only an index and hidden page so far, but totono representation is always nice so i'm keeping the button
a gorgeously advanced and sleek site with a very good taste in kpop autoplay. :]
lots of anime oldweb feeling stuff. i love their oekakis a lot!
charming and stylish little diary site. i absolutely adore the design, especially on the front and about page.
toroinoue adorably-styled toro inoue themed website. the log is my favourite page!
a gorgeously designed online diary with extremely solemn entries. check the cws before reading them.
grungy and dark personal site, the front page design is especially wonderful.
adorable, pixel-heavy site. i like their pages on liminal spaces and their system cottage a lot.
dr who fuelled personal site. there's a hidden poem on there called muses, and it hits very hard.

other neocities sites i appreciate:

site desc
impeccable vibes, minimal but gorgeous design. seize the day page and archives pages are especially worth the visit.
very talented artist, very very surreal vibes. wonderfully fucked up little ocs.
grief a tiny little distraction for if you're upset. very endearing.
it takes pictures mostly just an about site and a list of cameras but the site design is absolutely gorgeous, especially the neon grunge of the index page.
atheOS the most asthetique in-browser OS style that i've seen. the ability to change the bg is neat!

mayuri hoshida the mangaka of laika no hoshi, the manga all of the mangapanels on my site are from. i highly recommend checking out her art.
wa2ise i believe this guy made the gorgeous saturn ascii on this page! (with minor tweaks from me)
bubba73 source of the background image on /saturn.html and /saturn.html.
esahubble.org source of the background image on /europa.html.
fernando jorge source of the background image on /earth/.

finding images:

site desc
unsplash free stock images, good for finding page backgrounds
pexels another free stock image site
gifcities everyone on this site stans this site, but it would feel wrong not to include it. geocities gif search engine.
glittergraphics kind of like gifcities but for 2000s graphics, and easier to navigate.

image converters:

site desc
scanline crusher distorts images with a scanline effect, used for some img hovers on site!
pixel-me ai-powered image-> pixel art converter. it's not perfect and often messes up transparency, but it's very cool when it does work.
ai gahaku ai powered image - >painting converter. distinctively 'ai' looking, but still fun to play with.
ditherit tool that makes images dithered and crunchy and old. you can use different methods and swap the colour pallete.

misc web resources:

site desc
add text to each line have you ever had a long list of things you want to wrap in css tags? this will automate it for you.
ezgif my favourite website for gif making, dissecting, converting, ect. also for png->100% jpeg to dodge twitter crunch.
mf2fm free javascript effects, some are a bit much but the cursor/text effects can be cute if used well.

other links:

site desc
cameron's world a collage of gifs and text recovered from geocities archives. again, well known but it'd feel wrong not to link it.
space email send and recieve messages from total strangers, with no way of replying or knowing why they sent what they did.
gentle.earth cast off messages into the void. some may resurface on the front page for a time. others will disappear permanantly.
omori-game very pretty and inspiring promotional page for the game OMORI. monochrome, 1px lines and pencil illustation.
katanazero really cool promotional page for the game katana zero, featuring a beautifully pixeled, interactable, tv setup.
