It’s Clobberin’ Time!

Nightbringer – Another new fanlisting, and a second layout on another!

Grimm is a fanlisting for Ben Grimm, The Thing, from Marvel’s The Fantastic Four. This fanlisting is absolutely becoming a shrine. I had hoped to get some remnants of a shrine up before launching it, but it’s due next Tuesday, so I had to get it up. I hope you enjoy the layout and codes! Keep an eye on this blog for content updates in the near future!

Pipe Dreams, the Super Mario Bros. Series fanlisting, is now skinnable! In addition to the Super Mario Bros. 3 layout I launched with the fanlisting the other day, you can now switch to a Super Mario World layout. This was a lot of fun to implement, and I hope it’s fun for you, the visitor. A huge thanks to dubiousdisc and Denise for their help with the coding!

I also made some new codes. I can’t stop. Help me.

Another New Fanlisting

Nightbringer – The second of the three fanlistings I’ve recently been approved for is now up and running! Pipe Dreams is a fanlisting for the Super Mario Bros. Series! I am over the moon about running this fanlisting; I hope you’ll join if you are a fan!

I’ve made 33 codes so far, and keep thinking of games and characters I need to feature in a code. I need to quit and get to work on my third fanlisting due, haha.

Pipe Dreams is listed on the Other Games page.

New Fanlisting and Shrine Rec

Nightbringer – New fanlisting, High Mountain, dedicated to Alm from Fire Emblem Echoes! It’s currently linked on the Other Games page. I planned to give it somewhat of a simple temporary look, but ended up really digging this layout. It is simple, but it works for this character and game; it’s staying.

The Amazing – As a reminder, I only call out updates here for my own recs at The Amazing. I posted a new shrine rec toward the end of last month. It should be of no surprise to anyone that it’s a Fire Emblem site. I’ve been kind of obsessed with that series recently.

Major Collective Restructuring

Nightbringer – My fanlistings collective, Shimmer, has been closed and merged with Nightbringer! I did this for several reasons:

  • One collective is easier to update and manage than two.
  • Many of my fanlistings are also shrines, and vice versa, so the two collectives were a little redundant.
  • I want to be able to interact with all of my visitors, no matter which of my sites they visit, in one central place. Nightbringer is my home on the web, and the launchpad of all of my fandom-related websites — my shrines, my fanlistings, and my projects that sit somewhere in the middle.

Check out the revamped Domain page for more information.

With this merge, fanlistings collective affiliates have been added to the Linkage, and a 75×50 banner has been created for fanlistings collectives to link back to Nightbringer. If you were affiliated with Shimmer, please change your link to Nightbringer. Thank you!

Site type is now listed with each of my larger sites (Character Shrine, or Character Shrine & Fanlisting, for example). Sites that are more fanlisting than shrine are linked with icons under a special Fanlistings header on the sites pages. Some sites listed under Fanlistings currently will eventually be expanded and linked above with my shrines. Some I’m content remaining just fanlistings. 🙂

Fanlistings not currently linked are in limbo: some are in the process of being adopted out, and others will likely be closed. The fanlistings listed at Nightbringer are the ones I intend to keep and continue working on. For those interested, here is the list of fanlistings currently in limbo (If you are interested in any of these, please shoot me an e-mail!):

  • Animorphs
  • Bravely Default
  • Courteney Cox, actress (Adopted!)
  • Koopalings from Super Mario Bros.
  • Shawn Ashmore, actor
  • The Sixth Sense, film

Shimmer’s old subdomain is now being used as a Fanlistings Joined page. I will be removing the link to Shimmer from my fanlistings in the coming days.

I hope these changes make sense to you. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me via e-mail or by signing my network’s chatbox on Nightbringer’s main page. Thanks everyone who has signed it so far! I love hearing from you all.

Minor Coding Updates

Somewhere Only We Know – Minor updates have been applied to the CSS. Font size is larger, and the content width is wider. The site should be more readable.

Forget Me Not – The changes made to my Sabin shrine have also been applied to my Kara shrine. The content is much more readable. My boyfriend and I have just made it through Season 3 in Battlestar Galactica. Several new articles for this site are in the works. Keep your eyes peeled!
