Behind the Name

There's a very simple explanation how Odd Eye popped into my mind when creating this network. Odd Eye is the first track of the full length album "Odd" by South Korean boy group SHINee.

The song itself has quite a significant meaning. Normally it takes me a while to get into specific tracks unless it's the title track or a musician I like. Even though I was in the process of taking a liking on SHINee again, it took me a while to get used to their album's genre - with "Married to the Music" and "View" being exceptions; however, "Odd Eye" was the first track I immediately took a liking on after listening to it for the first time.

Thanks to "Odd Eye" my inner fangirl for the group completely recovered in no time.

History

Odd Eye was previously and originally known as Defect♥Lover. This network has been here since Himechan.tk, but was never actively used or available as an actual site.

Everything originally started off as Bebentoo's Review Shop - a review thread mainly for stories available on Asianfanfics. At some point my passion for writing and reading expanded; as well as my knowledge in grammar, vocabulary and spelling - leading to the decision, that I would start to provide BETA-reading for those who are weak in these categories. Unfortunately it didn't last for long due to my tight schedule and the number of requests I received each week.

At some time, I finally found time again and re-opened. Several names came up my mind and all of them have been used one after another. Around 2013 (I think), the idea of creating a site/blog dedicated to it hit me, so I renamed my shop once more and gave the site/blog the same name which was Idiotic Fangirl. The name is a put-together of the words "idiotic" and "fangirl" - the reactions of a typical fangirl once their favorite artist makes a comeback or when they watch a video of them. It was hosted on Blogger and the layout featured none other than my still favorite Korean male group INFINITE - made by Chazz from Dorkistic.

A few months after did I come to the conclusion that keeping the shop won't do much if I kept being busy (BETA-reading requires a lot of time and patience). Instead of adding some new feature or service, I decided to take up a domain instead to get an insight of the world of web designers, providers and bloggers; but since I couldn't afford anything yet, I requested for the subdomain Daemonic, hosted by Kaitlyn from Pinkwish (currently Sugarkiss). There I came up with the idea of creating a layout named "Full Blossom" featuring Mouri Ran from Detective Conan. After some while I found out about Freenom giving out free domains and Pinkwish providing free domain hosting.

Moving on, the next name and the predecessor of Zyglavister was Himechan.tk. The name originates from my childhood dream of becoming a princess in real life - without the part of finding a prince charming. Things happened and I found less time to update it and without any notice, my domain has been shut down/deleted in July 2015 after almost a complete year.

In January 2017, the network Defect♥Lover has been officially established with Venirose.net serving as a portfolio and Zyglavister as a personal blog and resource site. However, due to the lack of interest I had in creating projects, Venirose has been shut down in March 30 and everything has been merged with Zyglavister; although short after, in June, the network has been renamed and Venirose.net has been revived.
