Sorted under and they shall fall, cradle and rupture.

And they shall fall — The site won Amassment’s Shrine Spotlight for November 2016! I’ll put up the lovely award soon. ❤

Cradle and Rupture — I finally, FINALLY finished my fanmix for Naoto. See me bare my teeth for you can be listened to here while information and notes can be found here.

Sorted under and they shall fall, easy breezy.

A new essay has been added to Easy Breezy! Fear vs. Timidity compares and contrasts the difference in Makoto’s behavior when he is fearful versus when he is merely being a… well, scaredy-cat, haha. The essay was originally meant to be a part of “Fear” but, due to the page’s length, I decided to make it its own section.

In addition, the site has a new affiliate: Aqua Gate, the fanlisting for Matsuoka Rin!

The site along with And they shall fall have also been updated with new scripts. Both galleries now run on fancyBox and the hover effects have been changed as well.

Sorted under and they shall fall, easy breezy.

Today I was approved to run the fanlisting for Tachibana Makoto! Easy Breezy has been updated with a new fanlisting section; more fanlisting codes should be up shortly, but for now there’s a decent selection available. In addition, I also made some new link back buttons.

Likewise, I also made new link back buttons for And they shall fall!

Sorted under even death has a heart, and they shall fall, cradle and rupture, golden.

Excalibur, the fanlisting for Fuyumine Naoto, Even death has a heart, the fanlisting for The Book Thief, and And they shall fall, the fanlisting for Shadow of the Colossus, now have shiny new codes! There are also some new ones to choose from; The Book Thief in particular now has buttons displaying images from the movie.

Excalibur and Even death has a heart are among my oldest fanlistings, so it was an update that was sorely needed, heh. I’ve removed a great deal of the older codes. I’m debating whether or not to make them available still, but it most likely won’t happen. Enjoy!

In addition, Golden, the fanlisting for Wong Kar-Wai is open and ready to join! I opened it about a week ago, but haven’t plugged it anywhere until now. At the moment, I probably won’t link it on the domain as I’m still not fully satisfied with the layout. The current header is temporary; I’m still working on the final product(s)!

Sorted under messy, contradictory and true, sugar and spice, new wind, fire in his eyes, are we really alive?, blood begets blood, bitter but sweet, run, cast away, even death has a heart, and they shall fall, troublemaker, cradle and rupture.

Unfortunately, I just happened across the situation and so I have no clue as to how long this problem has persisted. Basically, Photobucket made it so that when you save the image from the direct-link URL they provide, the file is somewhat corrupted and you can’t open it in various tools. You may be able to still upload it, but I haven’t got the faintest idea as I didn’t test it.

In any case, I’ve edited the codes to prevent the problem from arising. Gradually, I plan to move the codes onto the server instead. This is not a priority for most of my fanlistings as the codes they have are quite old and need replacing anyway. So far, the only fanlisting that has accomplished this is the one for Kokoro Kikai.

Sorted under and they shall fall, lost-boy.

I redesigned the contact page; after a while, I kind of grew to dislike the last layout. I cycled through dozens of images, trying to figure out what I wanted, but I ended up using the same image I used for the previous design, haha.

In addition, a new guestbook will be found there in the future. I’ve already coded it and everything, but I’ve decided to withhold its release for now, heh. I don’t know how much activity the it will see, but the guestbook makes the contact page feel more wholesome in general.

And they shall fall

I’m in the process of adding new images to the layout to flesh it out more and fill in some of the empty gaps. Over the last few days, I also had the game’s soundtrack on loop, and added two new songs to the media section: “Prohibited Art” and “The Opened Way ~Battle with the Colossus~.” I can’t believe I forgot about them and didn’t add them the first time around. I love both of them a ton! I’ve decided to remove “Prologue (To the Ancient Land)” for now, but it might rotate back in the future! Check out the new changes here.

08 April 2016

Sorted under run, and they shall fall, lost-boy.

As you can see, I’ve opened up a new update log for the domain! The first layout features Nakamura Yusuke artwork because I’m a creature of habit. From now on, updates pertaining to all my sites will be posted here. I’ve deleted the old files and updated the links for all my sites.

In addition, I also deactivated the temporary Twitter account I had for the domain, back when I was unsure of how I wanted to set up my updates. I may bring it back in the future as a kind of supplement to this site. To be honest, though, I don’t tweet too much and maintaining more than one Twitter account is a bit of a hassle for me, haha. Sorry for the inconvenience! Of course, you can still hit me up on Twitter if you’d like by messaging me on my personal: @phonyu.

And they shall fall

I added new link buttons for those who might be interested in linking back to the content portion of the website. You can find them here. I’m not completely satisfied with them, though, so expect some changes or some new ones in the future!

Run

Just noticed an error for the fanlisting; it seems that the reset password page was missing. I’ve restored it, and everything should be working now. Check it out here.

Sorted under and they shall fall.

The final pages of the site, Shadow of the Colossus and Colossi are finally up! I still have a few more essays I’d like to add (Of Monsters and Men being the most important one), but I feel that they are supplemental material and not necessarily worth barricading an entire page for them. When I first began to revamp the site, I only meant to put in basic information but… as you can see, that clearly slipped from my hands and now here we are.

In any case, I’m glad I added much more information, even if the layout I created wasn’t intended for it, haha. Enjoy!

Sorted under and they shall fall.

We have moved over to my own personal domain: http://lost-boy.org/sotc!

After five bloody years, this fanlisting also finally got a much needed overhaul: a new layout, a new media section and an upcoming information section (it’s about 50% complete). It still needs new codes, but I’m working on that right now!

Sorted under messy, contradictory and true, sugar and spice, new wind, fire in his eyes, are we really alive?, blood begets blood, bitter but sweet, run, cast away, even death has a heart, and they shall fall, troublemaker, cradle and rupture.

I probably should’ve done this long ago, but I’ve converted the fanlisting to Enthusiast! Hopefully it will make it easier for new members to join and existing members to update their information.

Run to the world
I’ll also be working on updating information around the site, including F.T. Island’s discography. Cheers!
