Poll: help us choose our comm's new header  
As you know, we, meridian_rose and hrhrionastar have set up this comm, palaceprophets, for our collaborative fanworks. We're now doing some decorating, and we'd love your opinion on our new header. Please help us choose by voting in the poll below:

I prefer header:

prop b
game c
deed a

I was choosing between #2 and #3 really. And decided I liked the phrase (and the font) on the second header better.

Also maybe if you make the title a little bigger and align it on the left (where the second line of text begins. Then the center of the title will end up above the highest tower of the palace...) it will be easier to read and it won't mess with Nicci's hair. There's a chance it might even look better but I'm not sure.

I really like the header as it is. :D

The quotes were the last items added, so the position of the title was fixed at this point...it's interesting you mention about it crossing Nicci's hair, because I deliberately placed the title there. I usually would try to put the text further to the left, but I felt it made the background palace look like a separate piece, while having the text cover both images tied them together. I see this a lot in icons and walls, people using text to join images where I'd usually only put the text in one spot...IDK.

Thanks so much for your comment and your vote :D

Well, the bottom line already ties the images together so...
But it was just a thought. I'm not really sure it will look better without seeing both options. And I'm more often wrong than I'm not.

You didn't vote? Why? Which header do you like best? :D

These are three from a set of nine; each quote was presented in each of the three fonts. So these are already my top three, narrowed down from the last nine, which were narrowed down from more possible pictures and quotations :D

Oh. Complicated. o_O

Where's this second quote from btw? I can't pin it down. O_o

It's from Memory, one of my favorite books in Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan series. Highly recommended ;D

Ooh! I haven't read those. Thanks for the rec! :D

I really like the last one best. But then you know how I love exploring the idea of what is good, what is evil, and if they're so very different. <3

It also seems like something that really fits with the images on the banner to me.

Although I chose #3 I like the font on #2 better. Also, I agree with dorothydeath about the title messing with Nicci's hair. I can understand your reasoning and it is your comm, so you can do what you want, but I find it slightly distracting.
