DOMAIN: FARRON
farron.net's temporary page was updated to include a functional list of links; it'll likely remain static from this point on, unless I suddenly get inspired to expand it.

DOMAIN: NEVARRA
A small change, in which I updated the presentation for my upcoming sites (again) - or those that I at least plan to do for this year. I also updated the current sites page with the surprise tribute, listed below.

I also updated my contact page with a new design for this year, featuring Lunafreya from Final Fantasy XV.

SHRINE: PICK A GOD AND PRAY
One of the earliest sites I always wanted to make was for Fire Emblem as a series, but it was something I always pushed back as I couldn't figure out how to tackle such a long subject matter; until I got hit by an epiphany that I didn't have to talk about everything, and just how I would present this site. Having had it in the back of my mind for years, it was extremely easy to word vomit an entire tribute in the space of a week. I'm still shocked this was a thing that happened, but it did, and it has, and my blue sky, dream tribute is here!

It's very opinionated, and a relaxed way to shrining, and I enjoyed the entire (secret) process. Pick A God And Pray is up over at taguel.

It also had a small update today, with a new banner for the Tellius pages because Sanaki (!!) was added to Heroes, which is the artwork I'm using for the headers.

DOMAIN: NEVARRA
Four new linking buttons were added, and I've started to use my listography to keep track of my site to-do list - it's linked up on Nevarra for tributes I have in mind, and those I'm working on.

COLLECTIVE
Softly Call has been renamed yet again, this time to Jane Doe! I'm satisfied with this one - I'm all about those unwritten ladies that will take over my heart when I least expect it. I look forward to meeting you, lovelies.

Jane Doe also has a new layout in celebration of the rename, featuring Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening. I've never had a layout featuring Lucina before, but that's now fixed and I'm super happy about it because everything is so, so purple. I also reworked how my fanlistings were presented, so it's a lot more minimal and a lot more interactive. Many a ten minutes have been lost to me marveling at this piece of coding, I gotta say. Sorry not sorry.

My joined fanlistings page also has a new layout, and I'm tentatively dropped naming it, though I guess it's j'adore for the time being? Anyway, it features Edna, is super brown and simple, and it'll likely stay around for another, oh, two years or so.

SHRINE: PROMISES
The exit page has been added up with links to other XIII sites, and Promises is now listed at Badass Bitches, Emotion, and Those Who Fight! I did a cursory re-read of everything a couple of weeks ago, and it's likely I'll go through again when I'm not sick anymore, whenever... that... happens.

Why do I bother and why does this keep happening. "Later," I say. Later turns into eight months. As is, everything other than the fanlisting updates took place within the last two weeks, so that's more a case of nothing to report.

DOMAIN: FARRON
Nothing noteworthy, but I made a new temporary page for farron.net, since I never got round to it last time. I might try to make a layout from this one... eventually.

DOMAIN: NEVARRA
Nevarra had a couple of updates in the form of projects for 2017! For the first time ever I managed to complete something on this page, so I went ahead and gave it a look over. My Old Kingdom tribute is next in the pipeline, but it'll remain a slow, steady slog - but as I wrote a Nanworimo opus based in this universe, it will be done. Very, very slowly.

Aside from Old Kingdom, I'm teasing ideas with making a tribute for Prompto from Final Fantasy XV, but his will be a slower sort of thing. We'll see if anything else comes out this year as a surprise? You never know.

DOMAIN: CIETH
As of yesterday, cieth.org has a brand new layout for the new year! This one features the cast of XV, because regardless of what Square says, they will remain part of Fabula Nova Crystallis in my heart. Anyways, since I hadn't made a layout in about eight months I didn't do anything fancy with this one in terms of coding - it's very lazily swiped from the last variant with different fonts and more recent preferences. However, I'm all for the simplicity. It's nice; it turned out better than I expected and serves my XV needs for the time being.

SHRINE: PROMISES
Hold onto your hats, folks, Rems actually completed a thing! That being, Promises, my tribute for the lovely Serah Farron from Final Fantasy XIII, is now online and is complete! Well, mostly - there's a media section I might add if I feel like it, and I still need to list her everywhere, but she's here and she's ready for your views. This one has been a long, long process of maybe four or six years, but it wasn't until 2016 when I got of my butt and actually made some plans and outlines when I was approved for her fanlisting.

The layout is the same as it was, though it was always made with this tribute in mind. I'm very pleased! It's been a lot of work, but I've proved to myself I'm capable of doing it. Awyea.

SHRINE: DOES THE WALKER CHOOSE THE PATH?
My tribute to the Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix is now online over at Does The Walker Choose The Path?! With the longest title ever, oops. The site is a part of Amassment's Construction Zone and as such there's very little to see at the moment aside from the layout, the index, the linking buttons and credits, and is a work in progress (my focus is with Serah), but I'm hoping to add to it! This is quite an undertaking since it's a large universe to write about, but we'll see how I go. I have a few ideas of what I'd like to write about in depth as well as a site outline, so it's full speed ahead. Or, slow speed ahead.

SHRINE: DESTINO
A small update for Destino of some link fixing and adding up the fanlisting to the site; I also played a bit with the coding to improve legibility (the font size is bigger and the line spacing is larger now, since that's what I like to do these days).

DOMAIN: NEVARRA
First thing's first, nevarra.org has a new layout! This one features Kinomoto Sakura as a prince. In all my years of owning Fractured, Sakura was never a layout headliner, even though the domain was partly named after her... oh well. Prince Sakura is here with us now! I've loved this image for a very long time and I'm happy to come up with something for it. At first, I conceptualised this layout much smaller, but that wasn't working for me, so I decided to go bigger and now it's one of my most favourite layouts that I've ever made. There's some different coding tricks from my norm and I made use of a lot of many, many (span) tags to get where we are now, but I'm pleased.

With the new layout, I also went ahead and rewrote my network showcase (with a few new images) and expanded upon what's coming soon and whittled the list down to what I'd like to have completed by the end of the 2016. Both the tributes have layouts already, so now it's just sitting down and working on the content that needs doing.

The domain and webmistress pages also received some small changes and updates.

Unrelated to this layout, but my contact page also has a new design.

DOMAIN: NEVARRA
I went round and fixed a bunch of little typos and errors and updated my contact page. None of this really deserves going under Nevarra, but just as a heads up.

COLLECTIVE
Softly Call has a new layout! This one features Ezio Auditore. Syndicate sort of brought me back into the fold. In a stark contrast to the last, this one is mainly white and red, the colour of the assassins, because, edgy. There's also a story behind it; I'm signed up to Ubiworkshop, and in their recent promotion for Ezio's leap of faith figure, I spotted this concept art, which I've naturally never seen before since I only got into the series the year Black Flag was released. I had to have it, and I had to make a layout with it, and so, here we are. I did a bit of experimenting with this one to try and get the image to 'fade' naturally once the text came in; I think it works quite well. It also doesn't line up because animus, helix glitches, ever the creative... I also broke the unspoken font rule, but I think on this occasion, it's okay. Hopefully.

I also rewrote the about page (it's about time!) and hopefully this one will be satisfactory to me later down the road.

SHRINE: DESTINO
Destino, my tribute for Kairi, has moved over to cieth.org as part of the previous update. (I realised I didn't tag it in the last one. Oh, well! It's here now.)

End of the year updates round-up, since I fell out of using this journal again (oops). There's been a lot of changes so I'll try to make this as concise as possible. As always, you can find to-the-minute updates over at [twitter.com profile] fracturedkey!

DOMAIN: FRACTURED >>> NEW!! NEVARRA
This year was the tenth anniversary of fractured, but with it coming up for renewal, I decided to go for something fresh. I've started going by the new alias of Rems and purchased the domain nevarra.org, which is now my network hub! The first version features Commander Jane Shepard from Mass Effect, as I finally got into the series in summer (and I love that image, dayum).

Everything was updated accordingly and everything on the domain was revamped in some way, whether it be information, contact, 404 pages and just about everything else. There's new linking buttons too for those who haven't noticed; fractured will be expiring in the next few months.

NEW!! SERVER MOVE
For the best part of eight years I have been hosted by godaddy, but have decided to make the move to namecheap, and in early December everything was migrated from one server to another. Everything is essentially done, except for what's on keyofdestiny, which, like fractured, is another domain I will be letting go of (all my KH related content will be moving onto cieth) - I'm hoping to do this in the new week or two. Along with the move to a brand new server, I also bought another (yep) domain, farron.net, to keep everything neatly organised. At the moment, I have no long term plans for it, but it does host several of my FFXIII fanlistings that are related to the Farron sisters in some way.

DOMAIN: FLORETE >>> TAGUEL
Florete expired and I settled with taguel.org in order to replace it (so many new domains, I'm sorry). The layout features Panne, the domain's namesake, and though again, I have no real long term plan for it, I do actually have some content on there! Gasp.

CLIQUE: EVEN THE ODDS
Said content on taguel, Even the Odds is a Fire Emblem class clique, using the classes Robin (and Morgan) can change to in Awakening, due to the ease of using Awakening sprites to have some consistency. Please do join if you're interested!
