I guess I was inspired by [ profile] missdeep? I made like 5 different versions for version 16, each with a different image and with a different baker's dozen of textures. :P Then I decided that everything was getting way too complicated, and so I just made things as simple as possible, though the CSS file is still pretty monstrous just for this.

I basically only listed the sites that I am really proud of. They're even listed in order from MOST PROUD OF to LEAST PROUD OF, lmfao. So you know that if I ever have to revamp them, they'll be revamped in reverse order. |D The rest, while not closed, I guess are kind of in limbo? Either I'm working on them or they're completely static (at least for the time being). I don't really have the heart to close any of the sites I have now, as much as I'd like to have some more quality control, because of all the time I spent on them in the first place.

There are still a number of projects I'm working on right now, muahaha. Lately I keep thinking that my network was too big and this and that, but in the end I just really love making shrines and that's all there is to it. I'll keep making them and subsequently closing them or revamping them as I feel like. Look forward to them! ♥

- Furtivus is now a year old as of October 5th. There's not much more I can do for this site anymore, but I've been working on a new layout for it. :3
- Prince is four years old as of September 29th. I'm looking forward to the series starting up again next year provided that Watase doesn't pull a CLAMP on us. >_>

I closed my shrines to Oshitari and Hiyoshi from Prince of Tennis because they really didn't meet my personal standard. They're fairly minor characters, after all, so there wasn't much for me to work with. If they get more development in the new series, I may open these shrines up again. I am still planning on making a Shishido shrine, however, because he did get a lot of development in the original series. I will finish that shrine someday... |D

I also closed the Rasler fanlisting because my various attempts at adopting it out were totally unsuccessful after months and months of frustration. My Lambo fanlisting is up for adoption currently. At the end of all this, I will have a grand total of two fanlistings, neither of which will be closed any time soon. c:

Lastly, I went and finally added a few links to the exits page at Munich. A rather miniscule update, but one worth noting, I guess, lol.

Expect a lot of stuff coming up in the next few weeks. I have a lot of plans for site revamps and then, of course, one or two new projects, as well. :33

I adopted this from Alisa of since, unfortunately, her domain is closing at the end of this month. :/ Depressing thought, huh? Anyway, this is actually the first new layout I've made since May or so. Pretty impressive, isn't it. XD; It was such an uphill struggle making this, but I managed somehow. Features a statue of Zeus and about 2394724 textures from Hybrid Genesis. XD I already emailed everyone that I could find contact info for, but if you're a member -- please change your link! :3

I couldn't find contact info (or their forms weren't working, etc) for the following:


If you know any of them, please pass on this message. ♥ I also removed like 20 sites that had removed the link or had dead links, so... Just a nice little clean-up, I guess. Do join if you're not a member! :D

Tempest has a new layout that was made by [ profile] onthewing for the [ profile] amassment marathon. Insert the same thing I said about why Chrissy's layout was late being put up here. X_x Geez the marathon ended ages ago, I feel so bad about just now getting the layouts up.


- Saites Shion shrine revamp
- Locke Cole shrine
- ?????? shrine for the female character challenge

... among other things, if I feel like it. There's probably going to be a new domain layout up soonish, too, as soon as I can will my layout muse to get back to work....

Slooooowly making these updates, haha. MUNICH has a new layout courtesy of [ profile] involute and I've taken the whole thing off of Wordpress. ;x I kind of combined, removed, and fixed up all of the pages, as well as added a page on Kyoya as a host. Oh yeah, and I added a huuuge media section, lol. I'm working on the screencaps still, but I have up to episode five so far in HQ, so do check out the gallery if you get a chance. ;3

Look forward to more stuff coming very soon~ I'm even ditching my boyfriend to work on this stuff! :< I signed up for the female character shrine challenge and am really pumped up about this project, so I'll be working on it loads after I tie up some loose ends. ;o

I can has update? I actually made this layout back in like ... May. |D Back before my creativity flat out DIED. I have to work on that... This is actually one of those tiny updates that I loathe, but I wanted to show ya'll that I'm making baby steps towards coming back? For those not following my main journal, I kind of got addicted to this MMORPG called Ether Saga Online and it's basically sucked up all of my time, along with various personal issues I've had this summer. But I didn't forget my domain and have been working on it bit by bit.

Plans for the very near future:
- Shion shrine revamp (the network page LIES, lmao. it's not done yet.)
- Locke shrine
- Kyoya shrine revamp
- Hibari shrine's new layout (this should be up pretty soon since it's got no content update)
- various other projects I've been working on

I'm pretty satisfied with my network as it is now, so I won't be making a ton of new shrines anymore, but rather, working on really perfecting the ones I already have up. Probably the only shrine I can't add anything to is Furtivus. |D But the rest, to me, are still works in progress that I want to continue to improve.

I'm going to be turning 20 pretty soon, and the other day I sat and thought about my network for a while, actually. It's kind of amazing that I've been doing this webdesign stuff for so long and my interests still haven't changed.

For those afraid that I had abandoned my domain never to return, never fear! ♥ I would never do that to my baby. I actually just renewed the domain at the beginning of the summer, so Fated will be around for another two years, at the very least. :P Thanks for watching and I hope you like the new layout. ♥ It's only a small hint of what's to come!

I haven't been as productive as I'd like, but I am working (hard??) on my various projects, I promise! In the meantime...

Ah, that banner looks so deceptively nice and sweet... Little do you know that when you click on it... AHEM! Next month I'll have been running this fanlisting for a whole year. Isn't that something? XD JOIN NOW IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY.

- Shion shrine revamp!
- Locke and Frog shrines adopted from [ profile] anagramata.

New layout! I had to re-write all the pages. :| I added a shrine bookmarks page where I plug shrines ... It's a work-in-progress so don't think that the page will stay that small forever. I kind of went insane with the Prototip usage since I've had the license to use the script for so long and yet never bothered to do so. |D Most pages have at least one Prototip hidden somewhere, so hover over everything! You never know where one might be lurking.

... well, if you View Source, it's pretty easy to find out, but come on, that takes the fun out of it.

Don't forget to check out the mixtape (on the index where it says START THE MUSIC). It's meant to be background music while you're browsing through my domain. :3

Cause & Effect is my newest shrine, dedicated to my favorite Whistle! character, Fuwa Daichi. I really love this kid. For a while I thought he might overtake Kyoya as my favorite character ever, but that obviously didn't happen. |D

I'm on this sports manga kick lately, so don't be surprised if you see a lot of shrines along that vein over the next couple of weeks.

edit; I've adopted Marauder (Locke Cole, Final Fantasy VI) and Outshined (Frog, Chrono Trigger) from Alex of, so expect those up soonish?

And then I wonder where all my free time goes.

[personal profile] allegory
Uhhh a very minor update.

➠ I closed Fukai Mori, my Chitose (Prince of Tennis) shrine. I didn't really like half the things I wrote. |D If he gets more of a role in the new series, I might re-do this tribute.

➠ I moved Romanesque and Ascension over to Fated. [ profile] omame and I kind of made a joint decision to close and those were the only shrines I'd made that I wanted to keep, so there. I think that Ascension will stay static, but since Oshitari has already made an appearance in the New Prince of Tennis series, I might get to expand on his a bit. ♥


Cause & Effect, a shrine to Fuwa Daichi from Whistle! is my current project. I'm about halfway through with it, so expect it to be finished in the very near future. I guess you could say that he's my obsession of the moment.

➠ I bet you guys thought I'd abandoned Anti-Vainglory, my upcoming-for-the-past-year shrine to Shishido Ryou (Prince of Tennis) but I haven't, okay. ;___; Honest! I just got all burnt out around that time because I'd been doing all these Tenipuri shrines at once, but I think I'll fix it up a bit and then finally finish.

Icarus, my long overdue Black☆Star (Soul Eater) shrine, should also be finished sometime within the next two months or so, depending on how motivated I can get.

On a somewhat related note, chances are very high that I won't make any more tributes to female characters. Somehow the majority of them just really don't appeal to me. Even for the few that do, I find it hard-pressed to write about them. I know I had a few on my projects list at some point, but they've pretty much all been scrapped.

I guess the "male harem" will continue on!

I was doing some spring cleaning around my domain and the following sites were closed:

~ All The King's Men, my shrine to Tsukiyomi Ikuto from Shugo Chara!
~ Misery Business, my shrine/fanlisting to Meroko Yui from Full Moon wo Sagashite
~ Taiyou no Namida, my mini-shrine/fanlisting to Tsunade from Naruto

I sent in the closed forms for the second two because I'm kind of sick of dealing with adoptions and stuff. So right now I only own four fanlistings anymore: Ran, Lambo, Chrissy (, and Rasler (still pending adoption).

I will probably never give up Ran, but Lambo is still open for anyone dedicated who would like him. I'm just not feeling Katekyo Hitman REBORN! these days. I still like the series, but it's not an obsession like it was once upon a time.

some personal thoughts Re: )

04/02/09 EDIT: Bloomveil, my Judith (Tales of Vesperia) shrine, has officially been adopted out to Ivy! I've given her my old files, but she has free reign over what she wants to do with it. Look forward to it showing up on her network soon. ♥

I've got a gigantic update today. Also be sure you check out the new layout here at [ profile] karmacoded. ♥ It features my favorite three shrines at the top~

First off a new domain layout, finally! That Persona 4 one lasted quite a while, didn't it? ...Actually, there are two new domain layouts. There's a larger, more graphics-intensive one featuring my characters from [ profile] vastlands, first off. It's very wide, so your screen is going to have to be more than 1100px wide if you want to avoid the sidescroll. But it's got lots of stuff to read through, I guess, and it's definitely more ... shiny? XD

The second layout is a one-page, simple layout featuring my beloved Kyoya Ootori. It's teeny, so any resolution should be fine. There's a bit of exclusive info on that layout, too, though, so you really should check out both if you want the full experience. ;DD

I also have a slew of new affiliates, so do be sure you check 'em all out, though a number of them are sadly on hiatus. ):

Most of my friends know about these already but I wanted to wait until the domain layout was up before plugging these, that's why I'm only now updating this journal about these. Both new shrines are pretty text-intensive and have no media. ;x

- A Crow Left of Murder: my new shrine to Rei Kashino of the psychological shoujo manga, MARS. It's very heavy and the organization is a little different than people may be used to, but I thought this would be more effective considering the character, so there you have it.

- Bones: my new shrine to Luke fon Fabre from the game (and now anime) Tales of the Abyss. Very very heavy in the essay department. I figured it was about time Luke had a proper tribute because pretty much every other Abyss character has one. ;__; I've been working on this for months, but finally finished a couple days ago.

drumroll please )

I used to not really host people since I'm on a group hosting plan, but now that we have unlimited space and bandwidth, I'm willing to host a bit, though only shrines/collectives. Just email me if you're interested and we'll work something out.

I don't really mind if you look through my incredibly messy CSS and HTML coding if it helps you out. But if you totally rip off my style, it'll be fairly obvious because my designs are so spastic and ... well, me. I won't chase after you with a pitchfork, but I will probably be snickering about it where you can't see it and that's pretty embarrassing. So just don't. Design is all about your own personal touch, after all.

I honestly think that most of the best games or anime/manga series have already made & anything new is just an adaptation of something that's been done before. It's pretty difficult for me to get into new fandoms these days, so generally my interests are in things like Kare Kano, Final Fantasy VI ... you know, things that were made before most of the people on the internet today were born. In any case, if my small efforts get more people interested in the things I love, my work here is done.

I start with an image, I open it up in Photoshop, bombard it with textures and crap typography, then slice, save, and code. I'm not very artistic so there isn't a real ... process to it, I just keep messing with things until I'm satisfied with how it looks.

If you have a site of comparable quality & caliber to my own (as in no fanlisting collectives or things hosted on Freewebs), please feel free to email me about a link exchange. I'm currently not accepting affiliates or siblings or anything like that anymore.

If you have a LiveJournal, try inquiring at my own or following me on Twitter, otherwise probably not. I am notoriously bad at keeping up with instant messengers and whatnot, so if you're not on the same social networks as me, it might be hard to talk with me very often. I'm always happy to answer emails, though!

This an extremely insignificant update, but I've installed Faqtastic on my domain, so if you have any silly questions (or not silly questions!) you'd like to ask me -- how do you come up with layouts, why is the sky blue, WHATEVER -- please direct yourself to the new and improved FAQ.

:D I look forward to answering some questions!

[personal profile] allegory's first shrine of the new year, BLOOMVEIL, which is to the beautiful Judith of Tales of Vesperia. Who, if you haven't noticed, is a GIRL. I know, it's amazing. |D;; The shrine is not as complete as I would like it, but I wanted to open it so I wouldn't sit on it too long. The Karol and Rita pages under relationships need to be finished off, and I want to re-do the costumes page using nicer images from the magazine scans, which weren't available to me when I first started on the shrine. There is no media because ... well, I don't have anything I can scan. :/ If there's ever an artbook or something or I get my hands on some doujinshi, I'll be glad to put media up, but for now there's not much for the game to show off, anyway. This is my first shrine to a videogame character in quite some time, so hopefully I haven't lost my touch just yet.

- Naoto Shirogane (Talk Shows on Mute) and Naoki Konishi (Paradox) from Persona 4
- Fuu Hououji (Kremlin Dusk) from Magic Knight Rayearth
- Rei Kashino (Crow Left of Murder) from MARS
- Naoki Irie (???) from Itazura na Kiss

Uhh well. After a very long period of inactivity, I have completely re-done my shrine to Rimudo of Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden, originally made in September of 2005. The only pages that are the same are his history page and the part in the sitely section where it talks about why I like Rimudo. I guess because those things haven't changed the last two years. XD; But all of the other pages are totally new and featuring lots more images to guide you along.

There aren't a whole lot of pages. My friends are insisting to me that this shrine is by no means "small", but compared to my typical works, I would say that YES, this shrine is small. I mean, the series is still in progress and there isn't much to say about Rimudo, really, but I did my best and hopefully my love for him is obvious. ♥ This was done for the Classical Element Shrine Layout Marathon @ [ profile] amassment.

Furtivus has a new layout! It has only been up for a few months, but I didn't like how thin the last layout was. This one's a bit wider, so overall presentation is a little better, and I like the colors, too. Plussssss, Arima looks so hot in this picture, I just had to use it. I was only recently able to find this image in a good resolution. I was tempted to vector it or redraw the parts where Yukino covers him up, but in the end, this is what I settled on.

In other news, Tempest is now affiliated with Quicksand, another Hibari shrine owned by Chrizta. Make sure you give it a visit! :D It's new, but really spiffy. I'll have some nice new shrines up soon. *__* I have a lot of layouts done, so I just have to get my butt into gear working on the content. ♥

Wow, this is my last domain update of the year. Anyway, just wanted to say that I spiffed up the siblings page (added those site buttons) and the just-split-off affiliates page (added blurbs and stuff).

My Judith site is about ... I dunno, 70% done or something. It should be up sometime in the middle of January or earlier. Naoto is also being worked on and should be done around the same time, as well. Lol two sites at once and they're both girls. What is this. Actually there's one secret shrine I started working on the other day that's for a guy. Ohohohoho.

I will be adopting the following fanlistings out: Meroko Yui, Rasler Heios Nabradia, Tsunade, and Lambo. I haven't figured out to whom yet, so if you're interested, just let me know and we can discuss it. I'll be keeping Ran and Chrissy's fanlisting.

Re-wrote a bunch of pages, affiliated with, converted all my links to buttons instead of using text links, GENERALLY I WAS VERY PRODUCTIVE, OK? Btw this layout is a twin with [ profile] involute's layout over at so check hers out, too, ok?

Adagio got a facelift!

Tempest also got a facelift! Also added more media.

Breakdown, my Shion shrine, was officially opened!

☠ I added more scans to Furtivus, which also was featured at [ profile] arainymonday recently. Thanks to everyone for your support of this shrine! ;A;♥

Personal site also got a bit of a facelift, haha.

☠ Oh yeah my Meroko shrine is kind of on hiatus while I fix it up a bit, so don't worry too much.

I'm just a little annoyed at the state of my domain at the moment, so I'll be taking it down until I can bring it up to where I want it to be. It shouldn't take me more than a week or two at the most, so please be patient until then. ♥ is going to be on hiatus for a week or two while I finish off some of my projects and fix up some of my old sites.
