The old layout has been sitting there since early 2010, and pretty useless, and I've been pretty unsatisfied with it. I haven't had an idea or any sort of inspiration for a new layout for it until now. It's still pretty useless, but at least it looks nice.
The new layout for asukira.net was a lot of fun to make. I probably spent the most work on making the background pattern.
Just a quick update to say I added some cute quotes for my close friends in the affiliate blurbs on the exit page for shinshoku.net. Other updates are so minor they really don't need to be commented on.
New fanlistings and adoptions.
Oops forgot to update when the first two went up, but this is basically a roundup post for my recent fanlistings.
If anyone is interested, I have a list of fanlistings available for adoptions here.
Previous archive of posts are located at my old updates LJ.
After getting the new layout up, as a part of Amassment's 2016 Revamp Event, I finally had time in the past week or so to go back through every single page, reread, and change whatever was needed. Most had typos and awkward sentences to fix, but a few pages I either rewrote almost the entire thing, or added new paragraphs to (namely the "Introduction" and "The Third Children" pages).
The last page that's been crossed out since this shrine first when up is still crossed out, but working on that and possibly adding another page will by my goal next.
New layout ver 22 for Shinshoku.net
Wow I can't believe it's been almost FIVE YEARS since my last layout update (I uploaded the Michael Fassbender layout in December 2011). Looking back, I used to switch layouts much more frequently, but I think with work and everything else, I just can't do that anymore haha. Anyway, I guess this is me officially exiting my semi-hiatus from sites. I've been getting back into actively working on sites again, and it's kind of refreshing to be making stuff again.
This new layout was a result of a combination of me fixated on doing this new layout on a special day, and also finally using art from one of my favorite works. I picked Oct 29th because it's Athrun Zala's (of Gundam SEED) birthday, and it became sort of natural to also use Athrun as the theme. My favorite art from Gundam SEED is of the side story manga by Kuori Chimaki, which also focuses on Athrun.
At first I was just going to do a standard layout, but there were so many different panels from the manga I liked, so I ended up making a unique layout for each page, as an excuse to use all the nice images. I don't really expect to change it for a while, though it definitely will not stay up for anywhere near as long as almost five years.
New layout and happy 2nd impact day
This is a bit of a rushed update, but I wanted to make it in on time for Kaworu's birthday on Second Impact day. This update is mostly cosmetic, with a content clean up coming soon.
I've had this layout made since 2013, but have been holding back on uploading it until I got my last page done. That's still not happened lol, but it will.
I've been spending most of my time working on this update log script, and now that's it's mostly working, I can focus on other things.
Luckily for me, this layout has stood the test of time and my picky personal standards (lol otherwise I'd have scrapped it).
