Right, I guess most people are aware of this already... The only reason is still up is because I have it on Cloudflare, ahaha. The domain expired more than a week ago. If you guys could change all your links and whatnot to, I'd really appreciate it. I'll have a more traditional sort of layout up at some point... I've been so busy with other creative endeavors that my design skills have kind of suffered. |D

To-do list:
- Huge Munich update:
      I need to update the information to include stuff on the (very telling) manga special. I'm also now keeping up with the Ouran drama, so I'll have information on that version of Kyoya, as well. Sadly he is not played by Hiro Mizushima. ):
- Furtivus clean-up:
      I still really like the layout, so it's probably not changing, but I need to finish cleaning up all the pages and elaborating on some of the shorter ones, etcetera.
- Prince update:
      Lol there haven't been all that many chapters released since my last update, but I still need to fix up the pages to reflect them. Debating on changing the layout, as well... We'll see how inspired I feel by then.

I still would really like to finish a shrine to Killua from Hunter x Hunter (my second favorite animanga character of all time after Kyoya). After that... I have some other shrines I've started and lost interest in, haha. Bunch of SMT stuff on that I need to finish. It'd be good if I can at least get a shrine out once a year because I still love the idea of shrine-making, even if I've slowed down a lot.

Oh gosh, I've been putting this update off for ages because I've been so sad that the series is over, but at last I've put the finishing touches on Munich and given it a brand new layout as this site quietly goes to sleep. I'm glad I got this done in time for the Shrine Revamp Marathon, haha. My goal at the time the marathon started:

I need to re-organize the shrine so that it focuses a lot more on his personal relationships and various aspects of those. (ie: splitting up the Tamaki page) I also need to update the shrine so that it's up-to-date with the latest chapters. I don't THINK I'll be making a new layout as I rather like the current one, but I might, haha. |D Hopefully this works!

Reorganization? Check.
Splitting up the Tamaki page? Check. (sort of)
Making the shrine up-to-date? Check. ;_;

So it looks like I met my goals. Phew! Here's a breakdown of all the actual changes:
  • I reorganized the shrine so that now there's more than just a "basics" page and an "essays" page. The essays have been split up into two sections and the series page is separated from the rest.
  • I made minor changes to almost all of the character essays (and relationship essays) in light of new plot developments and whatnot.
  • I more than doubled the length of the family page, giving my opinions and descriptions of Kyoya's two older brothers, who only got attention in the last bit of the series. YAY PICTURES!!
  • I added a brand new bit of tl;dr in the way of an essay called subtext, which is basically a very opinionated piece on why I think Kyoya is gay or, at the very least, isn't in love with the heroine, Haruhi.
  • Lastly, there's a new layout, though it features "old" material. I kept a liiiiiittle bit of the coding Chrissy did for the last layout, haha, and I think it's really obvious what I kept. I'm not sure that I'm in love with this layout or anything, but I wanted something simple that put the text front and center, so this is what I decided on.
This really feels like the end of an era now that Munich is complete, since it was one of my very first shrines. ;___; I will miss keeping up with it, as well as with Ouran, and I hope you all enjoy Munich because it's not changing much from here on out!

- I'm almost two months behind on this but I've added everyone in the Patron queue and removed expired domains and stuff. (except for, which is kind of an honorary member) We had six additions and two removals, putting the memberlist at a nice sixty-five.

- Fated is now link-exchanged with and I find it kind of amusing how I go for weeks and weeks without any domain-related emails, only to get two on the same day. XD♥ Anyway I'm always happy to see new domains pop up, so keep the emails comin'!

- I basically have not touched my domain for months now, which is very out of character for me, I know. I've been experiencing a bit of a dry spell as far as productivity and creativity go, not least because of university coursework. I am working on a shrine for the OTP Marathon over at [ profile] amassment and will do my best to get that finished on time. (unlike my Girl Mode shrine /facepalm) Munich is also entered in the Revamp Marathon and will be restructured for the umpteenth time since the site's inception.

- Also, since Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden and Hunter x Hunter are both off their hiatuses, Prince and my upcoming Killua shrine might be in the spotlight soon. 8) I'm not going to make any domain New Year's Resolutions, but with any luck, you'll hear more from me soon. ♥

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

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'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.
