Yeah, so I didn't get as much done today as I wanted, but I woke up later than planned as well and then lost inspiration halfway through the day. But I still managed to update a few things! D:

REFLECTING HEAVEN has been finished (finally), so all the content is good to go. I wanted to make a new layout, but I've been having a MASSIVE layout block, so that didn't really go according to plan.

ALTERNA has a new affiliate. I have a new layout for this made, I just have to get around to aligning it when I have the chance to add some more scans and finish the last few information pages.

HYMNARIA finally has a new layout...though unfortunately that is all I did. It took me such a long time to make this layout (and it's not even that great), so I didn't have time to at least make some more avatars or something. I'll find something to add in the next few days, I feel bad I haven't updated the shrine since it's been open. :x

ANOTHER SIDE has been brought up to date with all of my layouts for currently open shrines. I hope to be able to add closed stuff to this some day too, but I need to buy some more space for my domain (and get unlazy).

I'm getting up around 6:45 AM tomorrow so I can get some of my homework done. I really don't know what I'll feel like working on tomorrow, as I jumped from Kyon x Haruhi to L to Zero to Luke to Takanari x Haine within like an hour, so we'll see what happens. I'm at least going to update VENUS SEAL because the layout has been sitting cut up on my desktop for two days now.

Hey guys! It has been quite a while since I have been able to update, but finally extracurricular activities and other such things are over. I'll still have to crunch a bit until May (APs), but I should have more time to do web design related stuff in general. But anyway, that's not what you want to read right now!





This has technically been open since January, but I did not want to "officially" post here until I finished the individual sections for both Axel and Roxas. Anyway, I have been working quite hard and for a long time on BURNOUT (since December, technically), which is a tribute to Axel, Roxas and their relationship. You may have found this mainly because cleverheartnet was kind enough to adopt the fanlisting to me while I was working on it back in January, so I had to have it open to the public earlier than expected. So, The Last Sundown is also a part of Burnout. I hope I did them justice, I knew I had to push myself to do a good job because I'm sure a lot of good people applied for the fanlisting as well. If you have found this previous to today, I just added the Axel content last night and Roxas earlier today, so now the information is pretty much "complete" until the release of 385/2 Days. I still have some media to add, but that will come some time in the future.

IRISBLADE.ORG has a new layout, which I actually like a lot. I had originally had another layout planned, but after noticing all my layouts lately were dark, I really wanted to make something bright. I got bright all right. Anyway, I have also added Burnout to my videogame page, and I have adjusted my projects. I only plan on listing the one (well in this case, two) shrines that I am currently focusing on so I do not feel overwhelmed and completely dedicated to finishing everything on the page. Right now, my main focus will be EVER AFTER, which is a shrine to the relationship between Takanari and Haine from Shinshi Doumei Cross (it's all 509am's fault that I'm in love with all of Tanemura Arina's works now ♥ ). I also want to get ANYTHING BUT ORDINARY open as well, so I will try and finish those up soon.

DESTINY CHAIN has been updated a bit since it was outdated. All informational content has now been updated to the most recent chapter.

REFLECTING HEAVEN's information section is almost complete now, I just have three more pages to do. I was planning on getting them finished today, but I ran out of time, so I will do them some time tomorrow. But yeah, more information has been added. XD;

I am on February break now, but unfortunately I cannot use every second of it to sit around and work on websites/be lazy. My AP English teacher not only gave us an essay on King Lear, but we also have to read ten chapters of Frankenstein and answer short response questions for each chapter using quotations from the text. I have to get started on that tomorrow since it's all due a week from tomorrow. Either way, I am hoping to at least update VENUS SEAL, HYMNARIA, ALTERNA and GLACIALIS if possible, as well as finish EVER AFTER. We'll see how things go. More updates tomorrow!

So, I kinda finished most of this stuff like...last week some time, but I never got around to posting about it. But that's okay.

NINTH RISING - Converted to css with a new layout (finally), and all it's pages have been edited and whatnot. I also added two more information pages that have been unclickable for awhile. Not very exciting. LET US HOPE HE HAS A ROLE IN KH358/2 DAYS!

SHARP SHOOTER - Converted to css with a new layout. I also edited the information pages and corrected some grammar/spelling issues.

IRISBLADE.ORG - Fixed the projects page around again. I am really trying to focus on my absolute favorite things because I definitely do not have an unlimited amount of time to work on websites. Before it has just been "focus on my favorite things from each series I like" but I just do not have the time to do that anymore. Some things were cut out, but who knows what will happen. (Also, Burnout is probably not what you are thinking, so don't jump to conclusions! I wanted to keep it a secret, but I felt better listing it.) I have been playing some new games such as Star Ocean 3 and Persona 3, so some projects will be on the way from those as well. *sweatdrop*

TETHEALLA.NET - Temporary layout was put up because I closed both Farah and Keel's fanlistings, and moved Literati and Swallow Dance to my projects. I don't know when I'll be able to finish Tales of Eternia, and having them just sit there is bothering me. Plus it doesn't hurt to cut down on fanlistings anyway, I suppose. But anyway, I put up a temporary page because I do not know how I am planning on organizing it, and need time to think about it. Yeah.

Sadly, I do not think I will get much else accomplished over break. I am obsessed with Star Ocean 3 right now, and I still have a bunch of school work I need to finish before we go back on the second. January is also going to be a hellish month for me, so I don't know how much I will get done then either, at least new site wise. I'll probably just focus on fixing up some current things or watching series/playing videogames to work on other things. We'll see though. Tomorrow (er..later today) I plan on scanning some Eternia stuff and updating Femme Fatale since I do not really like the layout on it now and I want to fix up some other things. If I do anything else, it'll just be some behind the scenes work on Burnout or Anything but Ordinary, so I am just letting everyone know.

To my friends: I'm sorry I didn't get around to Christmas gifts this year like I wanted to...I promise I'll make you guys special things for your birthdays and other things to make up for it! D: I LOVE YOU ALL AND HOPE YOU HAD A NICE HOLIDAY SEASON. ♥

Finally got this thing open about a month and a half late. If you haven't read the series yet, I really suggest that you do, it is really good. No, I'm not trying to get more people to get hooked and make shrines, what? Anyway, yeah. Nothing much else to say because axel_lostheart is being impatient since we're going to be watching Jigoku Shoujo in a minute.

INTERLUDE - got a layout change and I have changed the format. Over 120 images went into this thing, am I crazy?

IRISBLADE.ORG - has its annual winter layout featuring Enma Ai from Jigoku Shoujo. Changed the network format back to the way it was too because I missed the images on the side. I also have a new 404 Page because I was sick of the old one.

Winter break starts Thursday night for me, so I'll be able to get some updates done. I'm not sure what I'm going to work on new site wise, but I plan on fixing Demyx and at least Farah or Keel. New layout for Regret coming as well. Keep your eyes open~

Yes, you are seeing correctly. Serenity is finally finished. After beating at it for a few weeks, Riley finally sat down and worked on it for thirteen hours straight today (technically yesterday now) without breakfast or lunch, and only took a break for dinner and a shower. The shrine hadn't been updated in over a year and it was very far behind in terms of content missing from Kingdom Hearts II and such, but now it is pretty much complete. I have some more artwork that needs to be added and whatnot, plus a bit more media in the graphics area, but otherwise I am rather happy with how it turned out. Despite it looking small since it is divided into two sections, it is actually larger than planned and took me quite some time. o_O So I hope you guys enjoy it! The title has changed, so if any affiliates are reading this, I would appreciate if you updated your links. Thanks!

I had other updates planned for this weekend, but other things came up and my internet connection died at my mom's house so I could not send myself the layouts for Farah, Tear or Regret. I'm kind of burned out after working all day to the point of being a zombie, so I probbaly will not do anything until next weekend. I have three large grades coming up in AP Government, so I'll be focusing on school and Science Olympiad for a little while.

I really need some sleep now...

So, I did not do very much this week (that is open to the public anyway) but yeah. I wanted to post this update yesterday, but my internet died in the evening and I didn't get a chance. So some updates are from yesterday.

FLY AWAY! - is finally open again. I doubt many of you noticed it was down, but I cleaned through all the links and updated the format a bit. I was getting annoyed how many people were copying the idea, so I changed the text links to buttons...and all I can say is, a ton of people do not have buttons for their sites. Therefore, it took longer than I had planned when I took it down because I had to make people buttons, especially in the Digimon community. Anyway, if you want to link exchange or have your links added, now is the time to let me know. XD;

POLARIS - has a new layout and I've edited the css and junk a lot so it looks nicer. I've changed the setup for the content because having "world, kratos, ingame, gallery, multimedia, fanlisting, site, clear" was a REALLY big navigation. I did not downsize the site by any means, I just compressed them into "information, media, fanlisting, site" so I could make layouts easier. The only content pages really updated was the appearances page with my very little knowledge on Tales of Fandom Volume 2. I plan on adding more OVA stuff whenever I can get a version of the second and third ones to download and convert correctly. T_T;

KISS OR KILL & INCONCLUSIVE - have a new affiliate, Sakujo, a shrine to Mikami.

ALTERNA - has a new link exchange... and I plan on changing the layout for this as soon as I can make something somewhat decent. I swear I have layout blocks every five seconds when it comes to Kikyou...I mean really.

Anyway, so I was going to open SERENITY once the Kingdom Hearts side was finished, but I decided to wait until I finish the Kingdom Hearts II side as well. I only have a three day school week this week, so I hope to be finished with it by this coming Sunday at the latest, as well as a NINTH RISING update of some sort.

SWALLOW DANCE, LITERATI and SHARP SHOOTER are next on the new layout agenda.

Yeah, so I was not as productive as last weekend. I was pretty worn out from being sick I guess. Anyway, Reflecting Heaven is finally open, though the information section still has a little less than half left to be finished. I'm working my way through the game, so I hope it will be added soon... :\ I may add some pages like personality and other such things when I feel confident enough to write them since she does leave the game for quite some time once you reach a certain point. Anyway, she deserves more love so if you like her, feel free to join the fanlisting.

IRISBLADE.ORG - New layout. I also changed my network pages around, and I'm pretty happy with the way they are. I think I'm going to tweak it a bit for the next layout, but the concept will generally be the same. DON'T LET THE ROLLOVERS DISTRACT YOU. 8D

The rest of November should help website updates because we had today off, making this week four days as it is, and I'm going on a fieldtrip on Wednesday to see the play Antigone so it's like a three day week. I'm probably going to have a training class from 2-6pm on Saturday, but other than that I should have time to work. Then next week is Thanksgiving and we have Thursday and Friday off, so it's another three day week. So, here are my plans for the next few weeks:

1. Serenity (Kairi of Kingdom Hearts) - The revamp is about 50% complete as of right now. (I wanted to do more, but I needed to get Shana up since the fanlisting was overdue 8D; ) I hope to make it like 80% by the end of this weekend and it will definitely be finished by next weekend unless I somehow get mixed into some weird circumstances that does not allow me to complete it. May be finished sooner depending on how much homework I have in the next two weeks of school.

2. Ninth Rising (Demyx of Kingdom Hearts) - I don't think it needs to be revamped, but I have two or three pages I need to finish. I may or may not make a new layout depending on if I can make anything better than the current one. It's really hard when you only have like four images to work with. T_T# WHY IS DEMYX LIKE THE MOST UNLOVED ORGANIZATION MEMBER IN THE GAME? He barely gets any screen time or any decent images...Guh.

3. Tales layouts - Yeahhhh, so a bunch of my Tales of sites have only had one layout since they have been opened, and I'd like to change some of them. Swallow Dance (Farah of Tales of Eternia), Sharp Shooter (Legretta of Tales of the Abyss) and Literati (Keel of Tales of Eternia) are my main priority. I'd also really like to fix some minor things on Polaris (Kratos of Tales of Symphonia) because it will never be perfect enough for my Kratos OCD. I also need to finish the ingame/media sections for Farah as well. eventime, YOU AND I WILL BE PLAYING ETERNIA SOON BECAUSE IT IS DRIVING ME NUTS THE INFORMATION SECTIONS ARE SITTING THERE WITH NOTHING. 8D <3


4. Alterna (Kikyou of InuYasha) - New layout plz. The current one is really annoying me...I need to make something nice because Kikyou is awesome. ;O; I also have like three information pages I need to finish on this as well.

5. Glacialis (Ruki & Renamon of Digimon Tamers) - LOL total revamp. I need to add Renamon information to this mainly, but I'm also expanding it more than it's current condition because it's my only Digimon related site now. This may take some time because I still have to rewatch a good portion of Tamers, but I'm working on it, I swear! ...I made the layout anyway. -hit-

6. Honor (Sanosuke of Rurouni Kenshin) - This is my winter break project, but I figured I'd list it here anyway just so everyone knows I didn't completely ditch my favorite male anime character. I sound like I am 10 years old in the current content, so everything has to be completely redone. I have a bunch of other stuff to scan and more screenshots to add, so I'm betting it's going to take every day of my winter break. BUT IT WILL BE WORTH IT BECAUSE I LOVE SANO. But yeah, no matter where I am on the other projects, Sano will be over winter break because I cannot be worried about school and whatnot while working on its massiveness.

Once I feel comfortable with my current sites being in okay shape, I'll start work on Kensuke x Kagura as well as Kyon x Haruhi. I don't know what I'll do after that, but I'd also really like to get Layla up in the action as well. We'll see what happens.

I finally got my hands on Tales of Phantasia (lol $12 on Ebay! ♥ ) so that should be coming this week, and I'm going to buy Star Ocean 3 over the weekend thanks to fortuna. I won't play either until Kairi is done though because I cannot be more distracted than I already am. T_T;

Annnnd I've probably killed your friends pages by now, so I'm done for tonight.

So I'm surprised I pretty much did this whole thing this weekend. It was a long weekend, but still. I wrote most of the content today and did majority of the rest of the site yesterday. I started taking screenshots last week, but I only did four episodes so far. I'll add some scans and stuff later on...and I also need to replace some of the relationship images since I had absolutely NO good images of anyone on this computer...they are all at my dad's. Anyway, all the pages are up except the one about Misa's role in the movie, but I have not seen the film yet, so that would be kind of hard to do. I may add frivolous pages such as astrology and bloodtype later on, but I think it came out rather well. COMMENTS TO BOOST MY SELF-ESTEEM ARE APPRECIATED.

INCONCLUSIVE - had its links page updated as well as added Misa and True Justice as affiliates. Nothing too exciting.

IRISBLADE.ORG - updated the network and projects page. (Nothing new, just moved Misa to current sites rather than the projects page).

I wanted to complete Shana this weekend as well, but that did not end up happening. I'm almost ready for it to open with the information I can complete, so hopefully I'll have time sometime this week to finish that up. (The fanlisting is almost overdue!) Other than that, my focus is going to be put on Kairi now (and probably a quick fix of Demyx afterwards if I'm not sick of writing about Kingdom Hearts stuff once Serenity's revamp is complete). Once I finish that revamp, I'll probably get to work on Kensuke and Kagura, followed by Kyon and Haruhi. We'll see what happens though.

I'm really tired and want to go to bed, but I have to make flashcards for lizards/turtles for Science Olympiad to study...ahhh let's hope I do not get "distracted". :]

So I actually accomplished something this weekend! Surprising, right? Both of these were supposed to be done before school started, but I got lazy when my domain died right when these were both going to be completed. Anyway, so I bring you the newly opened INCONCLUSIVE, a shrine to Misora Naomi from Death Note, and I've finally finished the shrine section of SELENIA, a shrine to the relationship of Luke fon Fabre & Tear Grants from Tales of the Abyss. Now that 2/3 shrines are finished in the Luke & Tear project, I just have Daybreak left to go. We'll see how long that takes me...haha. But anyway, two shrines in one weekend, huzzah for me!

IRISBLADE.ORG has it's network section updated because I'm getting sick of all the domains that look exactly like everyone else. It is only temporary since I do not have that many shrines open right now, but I've simplified it a lot. My projects page has been tweaked a bit as well. I also have a new sibling, my good friend Amy from alexiel.net. :3

TETHEALLA.NET has a new layout. I love this image from the manga, so I just had to use it. The domain also has been majorly simplified until I can think of a new way to set it up as well. I'm content with it for now, so I guess it will do.

ANOTHER SIDE has been brought completely up to date with all layouts of currently open shrines.

So, now that I've done that, my plans for the next few weeks are Serenity and Kiss or Kill. The first quarter is ending on November 2nd, so I'll have to focus on school for a bit, but I should be able to get things done soon. Next time I update will probably be with Reflecting Heaven, as I got approved for the fanlisting to Shana a few weeks ago. Until then~!

Yeahhh so it's up. I worked my ass off for over a week and finally got this thing off hiatus. *breathes* I'm glad it is up though...I mean she is my favorite female character afterall. It was a hugeeeee weight on my shoulders, and I feel a ton lighter now that it's up! Haha. I ended up having a few more pages not working because I thought of them at the last minute, so I'll add those sometime in the future. But I am so breaking from InuYasha right now... so maybe sometime before school starts. Majority of it is there though, so please enjoy it! Also... GO GO GO GO GO VISIT ALACRITY!!!!! KOUGA LOVE FOR THE MASSESSSSSSSSSS~. omame made her Kouga shrine/fanlisting all nice and shiny and we debuted at the same time, so be sure to either click now or the giant button on Alterna's main page. ♥

FEMME FATALE got a much needed new layout...and I edited the pages and stuff to spellings from the Tales of Eternia Complete Guide book. I plan on adding a bunch of scans from that sometime in the near future...just not right this second.

IRISBLADE.ORG's projects page has been updated with the moving of Alterna to my animanga page and yeah. Also added some other projects I'm planning to do either between or after all the major ones listed first. We'll see what happens knowing me....

Uhhhhr yeah. So hopefully Selenia will open soon and otherwise, I'm going to be working hard to get Kiss or Kill open before school starts...watching Death Note like a mofo. Haha plus I'm watching Lovely Complex and Kaleido Star (both courtesy of omame so yay for new fandoms!...? More updates later...
