I think I've forgotten about this.

Anyway, I'm sure everyone who reads this regularly should know already. But, to those who come across this journal who don't, New domain layout.

New Sites:

Imagine - My bilingual fanworks website. Eventually, I'd like to make this into an Japanese personal site. But since I'm not comfortable enough typing out sentences in another language, we'll leave it as art only for now. :P

Iustitia - Forget about KOS-MOS and T-elos. Doctus is where it's at. XP Another Xenosaga fansite brought to you buy yours truly.

Piyoko fanlisting coming soon. T_T

Hurray. :D This will be up sometime in the near future. It's horribly uncreative because I just slapped some pictures on a texture and called it a day, but... it's pretty?



New stuff: Return of pixels and sprites! I found a good chunk of my old work and I'll be putting it back up. terra, whack me over the head if I don't put that laguna sprite up. I'm also going to toss in a few freebee layouts that I've made which I'm not planning on using. I have some tutorials that I've written up which I'd like to add as well. I'm also putting my better icons back up. Hurray for goodies! I'm also experimenting with new styles, and trying to break out of some tried and true methods in the past.

By the end of the year, I would really like to have new a new design for everything. Some of my older fanlistings are quite ugly and tossed together. I also want to break out of the frames thing.

Also, I don't think I've ever made more spelling mistakes in my life. They're everywhere. Thankfully, BBEdit has a spell checker that ignores tags. :D Huzzah!

Kiss Me Goodbye has been put on a brief hiatus while I update information (and sloppy, year-old code) for a new layout. I hope to have this up in a few weeks. A look at what's to come! Does the header (where the name of the site is) look really yucky and jpg artifact-y to anyone? I had to make some changes to it, and I lost the original PSD.

New Fanlisting: Maybe Tomrorow - Xenosaga III OST. Said content in the last post regarding Xenosaga 3 dialouge and what-not has been added. I also have a mini collective for my Xenosaga websites in progress. I just found it too hard to link to all of them on forums.

A new layout for the domain is in the works. FFXII related, just like everyone else in the community. :P OMG ONE MORE MONTH!

Other than that, I have shrine materials for Purity typed up. It needs a new layout (how many times have I said this?), but her Amano artwork is just so hard to work with. I may just go with my own fan art in the end. :/

Otherwise, that's all I have. :D

Nothing big, but since I've completed Xenosaga Episode III (and now working on all the sidequests), I've been scrambling to get the bulk of my textual content up on both of my Xenosaga shrines before FFXII. Power of Love and Liberation have updates in the text sections. I have a good 6 pages of hand-copied text from Allen's long speech before the end of the game. I'm going to type that up within the next few days. Oi! I need a laptop!

I was also approved for the Xenosaga III OST Fanlisting. So I'll have that up shortly, providing the official site releases the one picture I'd really like to use in the layout. If not, I'll have to use something else. :P

The artwork, icons, and website section are up at Liberation. Much love to Ally for providing scans for me. <3

I hope the artbook we get with the preorder has some decent concept art I can use. Of course, since I'm not shrining KOS-MOS, I highly doubt I'll find oodles of stuff. Never-the-less, I'm happy with the good chunk of stuff I have. I want to invest in the anime artbook. The covers of the DVDs have some good artwork too, but I can't justify spending all that money so I can scan them. :/ I wonder if they're in the artbook?

Personally, I get a kick out of finding hard to find concept artwork. You know, stuff you don't see everywhere. The official art pages are my favorite parts in the media sections of shrines. :D

I'm debating if I even want to submit my sites to the fansites section of the official NA website. If I can get away with replacing all of the games that are covered in my sites (there's several in the series) with one word (i.e. "Series"), then it's all good. But there's no way I'm going to fill up my entire footer file with the names of every game including the long-winded titles just to appease the corporation. Nor am I going to remove my cracky statements just because it doesn't line up with the official position of the company. Hey, personal opinions and interpretations make shrines stand out!

Speaking of artbooks, does anyone know if there's any plans to release an FFXII artbook? I have the FFIX and FFX ones. I'd like to get my hands on an FF6 artbook as well.

Xenosaga Websites:
Reminiscence has evolved into Liberation! It has a layout to match Tatarian Aster. Content pages have been going up every day. I'm trying for at least two pages of information and a media page a day. Content still needs to be added and modified in Power of Love, but I'm waiting for the final installment to do anything in the information section.

Final Fantasy:
BIG changes and additions in store for Kiss Me Goodbye. I'm debating on a name change for this site as well. Future fanlisting or not, I'm working on making it the best Ashe site I can possibly make it to be.

I have all sorts of notes and things typed up for Sexy Ninja (soon to be Ninjitsu), and Purity. It's just a matter of balancing my Xenosaga obsession with my waning obsession of FFVI. Don't fear, I still love it, but I'm too pumped for Xenosaga III's release at the end of this month.

I've promised myself that I won't take on any new fanlistings or shrines until I've gotten the bulk of this content done. XD

Good things come to those who wait! Shion Fanlisting Now under good management (and with readable text!)

I've readded all of my past fanlisting affilates who did link back, but I'm sure I might've missed a few. Hopefully I won't have a problem with Enthusaist eating everything all over again.

Immediate Agenda:
- Finish website commission for a friend.
- Content and New Layouts for my shrines are needed badly.

Upcoming Projects:
After needed content and layouts for existing sites are added. Sometime this fall?
- Prayer: Flonne from Disgaea shrine (joint project with atelierjoh
- Relm Shrine

Budding Aster - Shion from Xenosaga Anime fanlisting. Yay. Done. Complete. Now I just need to write more information, and make my own codes. Hah. XD

Reminiscence - My Ziggy from Xenosaga fanlisthing finally has some actual content. Eliza convinced me to put some there, despite the fact that Sanna already has a Ziggy shrine in progress. He's become my favorite. Especially after reading and seeing the omg!leaked information for Episode III. =D More will be added when I have time.

Now to add content to Sexy Ninja (that name is grating on my nerves, mind you), and redesign Purity as well as add more content there. My domain needs a new layout too. *twiddles thumbs*

Okay, busy season is now over for me. :) Hurray. That means, Updates!

Completed!

Tales of Cake and Cobwebs - Miss Havisham from Great Expectations Fanlising is now complete! Go join, all you bookworms. Affilation is welcome. :)

Dark Empire - Dead or Alive IV fanlisting previously owned by Katie has been adopted and moved to my domain because she's loosing hers. ;_; I didn't have time to make my own layout, so I used hers for now. Once I finish my other 230498 projects, I'll get on the ball with that.

Upcoming really soon, I swear!

1. Shion from Xenosaga Anime Fanlisting
2. Akari Usada from Digi Charat Fanlisting
3. Update content on my shrines, new layouts, and all that jazz.
