I love Fire Emblem: Awakening. It's probably my favorite game on the 3DS, and I love my 3DS. I knew I wanted to make a Fire Emblem: Awakening site as soon as I finished the game, but I had a hard time deciding what kind of site to make. Did I want to write about the entire game? Did I want to make a site to just one character? Which character? Awakening has such excellent characters that I found myself loving so many of them. I could have made a site to anyone else, and I almost did. My favorite characters in the game are Panne and Henry. I started a shrine to Panne, but every time I sat down to write about her, I thought about Henry. I actually connect with Henry on a personal level. Like another one of my favorite characters, Tidus from Final Fantasy X, I identify with Henry because of his abandonment issues. I went through a similar situation growing up, and although I don't love killing, war, and blood, I get Henry. After realizing that, my choice was clear, and I sat down to construct A Murder of Crows in November of 2014. I sat it down because of work, the holidays, and everything else going on in my life, but picked it back up in February, and finished it on February 17, 2015.

The layout features one of the few official images of Henry, a picture of crows I found online, and some textures from Crazy Kira. The main image and background were made in Adobe Photoshop CS5 and was hand-coded in Notepad.

I named the site A Murder of Crows because it has a lot of words in it that suit Henry. A murder of crows is actually what you call a group of crows in the wild. Henry has an affinity for crows and other animals, and first appeared amongst a murder of crows. The word ‘murder' stands out in the title, and I really like that because Henry likes killing, haha.

I want to thank Crystal and Tara for their support on this site. They were eager to see more Fire Emblem sites, and I don't blame them!
