lost-boy.org β€” I've updated the way members are displayed for a majority all of my fanlistings. It was something I've been meaning to do for a while. Many of the fanlistings I maintain only have a few fans, so I thought it'd be simpler to have all of the fans displayed at once instead of having a sort option.

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.

new wind worm king's lullaby dear happiness easy breezy bloom lost-boy.org reprise
Hello! There's been many changes happening throughout the site since the last time I updated, small as they were. I've neglected formally posting any updates in this blog, however, since I was making plans to move to an entirely new script for it: Chronica by the lovely Masao.

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 β€” 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 β€” 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 meβ€”e-especially little Andrea! ( /)u(\ )

Dear Happiness β€” 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!

Easy Breezy β€” Makoto received some new friends a while back. Please welcome Ainna's fanlistings for Ryuguzaki Rei, Yamazaki Sosuke and Free! series movies as new affiliates!

Worm King's Lullaby β€” Another new affiliate! Please welcome Ainna's Uryuu Ishida fanlisting.

Reprise β€” 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 β€” 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.

lost-boy.org easy breezy
lost-boy.org β€” The domain and many of its sites had some of their coding/CSS updated! I've also temporarily taken down the projects page for a small revamp.

Easy Breezy β€”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!

easy breezy and they shall fall
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.

easy breezy and they shall fall
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!

easy breezy grim
After a few grueling nights of no sleep, Easy Breezy, my shrine to Tachibana Makoto (Free!) is now open! There's still more pages that I need to add, but I wanted to make sure I opened it on time for the Dynamic Duos Challenge. The topic can be found here, which also includes Lethe's partner shrine to Nanase Haruka!

Grim also got a new set of lovely buttons donated by the wonderful Megan. <3 Thank you so much!
