I finally finished the design for my overdue latest FL, Satoh Takeru, who is probably the only Japanese actor I have been obsessed with. My fascination for him predictably came about when the Rurouni Kenshin live-action film came out in 2012. I stalked every Japanese blog and site, bought official merch (photobooks, calendars, DVDs), downloaded Japanese apps (like LINE) for exclusive content, binged on his shows, hounded videos with fansubs, and even started learning Nihongo (I’m nowhere near fluent, sadly, but I can read basic kana and know basic grammar). I literally spent thousands of pesos on this man lol. I’m more of a casual fan now, but with the last installment of the RK movies coming out later this year—to my biggest surprise, since I thought the trilogy of films ended in 2014—it’s fitting to put up a small appreciation page for him.

I cross-linked this with my Kaoru FL, of course, and added a few other RK-related affiliates. As to my other sites, I added Yumichika to Ishida as an affiliate, and changed Mal’s member/affiliate information for Ephemeral, Hakanai, and Northstar (and Katenkka’s, too).

Here’s what I’ve been up to yesterday and most of today:

  1. New layout for the main domain, ft. Ichigo Kurosaki (fanart by Sideburn004, used with permission). I had problems with the viewability of the last layout, so I had to change it. Too bad it lasted only ten days.
  2. Reverted to the early version of the Contact page, because all the other scripts I tried just wouldn’t work to my liking Now it’s back to Minako, with a few CSS tweaks ♥
  3. New links added to the Exits page of /log
  4. New affiliate added to Project Clique (The Docket) + cleaned up links
  5. New members and affiliates (The Docket, Beautiful Mind, and List-Me.com) added to Ephemeral
  6. New affiliate added to Hakanai.net (Laura)
  7. New affiliate (Alfred Hitchcock) added to Christopher Nolan
  8. Slight CSS tweaks to the members’ list were made on Sheldon Cooper

Ephemeral // Fanlisting Collective Directory So I had another niche directory idea and ran away with it. xD This time, it’s for fanlisting collectives. I thought it would be a good idea to connect all active FL collective owners since we’re basically a dying breed by now. If you run one, please join Ephemeral!

As an aside, this was probably the fastest layout I made. (Design- and coding-wise, everything just seemed to come together.) Fanart features Hotaru Tomoe by Pillara, used with permission.

On another note, I made some minor CSS tweaks and edited the “About” and “Exits” pages (added new links) for this update log, and added a Closed FLs section to Hakanai.net. The latter is meant for new FL owners who applied and got approved for these subjects at TFL or TAFL—they can contact me for the old members’ lists. ♥
