For those with a substantial number of fans, I'm still tinkering around with some different ideas! Fanlistings that have multiple fields (ie. The Book Thief) are still being fiddled around with in the background as well. Aside from display changes, I'm also considering using Enthusiast to maintain any fanlisting affiliates instead of manually adding them myself.
All of this is done in preparation for a new upcoming fanlisting! The sooner I clean up some structures and codes, the easier it will be for me to attain some uniformity, especially when it comes to sites that need new layouts and CSS cleanups.

I was able to move over all of my entries! Hopefully I'll be able to put up a new layout for this space, but in the meantime, excuse the bareness and any mess you might stumble across.
November 7th, 2019
Recent events compelled me to finally make the big move, but before I set all of that up, I think it's best to give the huge update now.
lost-boy.org — Troubles with my former host popped up suddenly late Saturday / early Sunday, and after doing a bit more background research of my own, I decided it was time to move to a new host. I'm eternally thankful to Lysianthus for taking me under her wing! If you are looking for a new, affordable home to move your sites to, I highly recommend Leprd and Masao's Teacake.
The move went smoothly for the most part, even though it took a while to upload all of my files! My backup was from two months ago, but everything that was lost has since been restored. Any kinks and loose ends (broken characters, etc.) will hopefully be caught and fixed in the coming days. Feel free to let me know if you spot anything wonky!
Eternal thanks to Aku, for managing to grab my online TCG logs from a cached version of my trade post, Megan and Masao for encouraging and helping me when the blackout happened. Thank you all for looking out for me; it means so much.
I've edited portions of the main domain as well, revising and moving things here and there. Domain was updated to reflect the recent move, and I also edited the blurb about the domain's name to align with my current feelings towards Peter Pan. I'll consider doing a fuller revision of all the writing at a later date; I'm pretty content with what I have right now.
Bloom — I adopted the fanlisting for Yu Yu Hakusho's Kurama/Yoko Kurama from sweet Delphine! Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to care for it. Yu Yu Hakusho was one of my first anime/manga series, and Kurama was... um, my first fictional crush. To have a small dedication to him on my domain means a lot to me—e-especially little Andrea! ( /)u(\ )
Dear Happiness — I've modified how the members are displayed in both this fanlisting and Kurama's. I'll consider doing the same to my other fanlistings, especially ones that I need to make new layouts for!
Reprise — I updated the site to Fancybox3. All of the fanlisting portions of the site (Join, Members, Update) now open in a Fanybox frame instead of a new page. Given how sparse those pages are, I didn't think it was necessary to have them be linked that way. I've also updated all of the external YouTube links to working videos.
New wind — The fanlisting for FTISLAND was closed back in May. I still love the band and their music, but my feelings nevertheless remain in a complex spot right now. I decided it was time to let go for the moment. Perhaps one day I will reopen it!
That's it so far, I think! I hope to be able to do more housekeeping very soon, including a new layout for this updates blog
and modifying the way the members list is displayed for certain fanlistings done!. On a related note, I applied for one recently, so hopefully that will be included in a future update as well!
Thank you again for all the help and kind words I received during the domain's move. I'm happy this lost boy has found a new home.

Easy Breezy —The site won Amassment's Shrine Spotlight for February 2017! It was certainly a surprise on my part, but it motivates me now more than ever to complete the shrine and do Makoto justice. Thank you!

Unsung — The fanlisting for Dorian Pavus from Dragon Age: Inquisition is now open! I've waited far too long for this wonderful man to get a fanlisting, so... I've decided to open it myself. To be honest, the layout is awful, so hopefully I'll replace it with something better or will find a way to tweak it to my liking. I wanted to get it up as soon as possible, however, so that I can be free to work on other projects I have in mind without worrying about an impending deadline.

Messy, contradictory and true — The emotions fanlisting also received new codes alongside a brand new layout. Thank you so much, Shinju! YOUR GIFTS ARE INCREDIBLE, AAAAAAAAHHHHH. Thank you again for being such an awesome Secret Santa. ( /)/////( )

First, there's a fresh new layout over at the domain featuring some lovely scans the super cool Lethe sent me! I've been trying to make something out of this particular scan since forever, so hopefully I did it justice! The very first layout of the domain will forever be remembered in the domain's guestbook, which I've also decided to release today after hiding it for so long, haha. I'm not sure how much activity it will see, but it's there if you'd like to leave a comment!
I was also approved for the fanlisting for Ichimaru Gin by AnimeFanlistings.com a while back, but refrained from sharing it here because I wanted to get a shrine up along with it. Unfortunately, it's been pushed back due to time constraints and some deadlines, but it's something that will definitely appear in the future.
I've also been approved for the fanlisting for my favorite director, Wong Kar-Wai, by TheFanlistings.org which I'm super happy about. Again, due to time constraints, I'll probably only be able to get the fanlisting portion of the site out, but hopefully I'll find time to work on it once one of my major projects is finished!
Speaking of fanlistings, the appropriate fanlistings have had their links to AnimeFanlistings.org updated to AnimeFanlistings.com. If I missed one, though, feel free to tell me!
A new layout for my online TCG trading post is also in the works. I'll update accordingly once it's finished!

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.
April 13th, 2016
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.

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.
