The biggest update, as you may have noticed, is the brand new layout here at Forsaken Faith — version 5: not so fairytale. I wanted to try something different, so I’ve switched from div layers to tables. I’ve also made the layout 800×600 compatible, after I realized just how many people still use that resolution. I don’t know if I’ll be able to manage it with my next layout, since it just seems like there’s so little space to work with, but for now Forsaken Faith is all resolution compatible.
Now, the layout itself features Cary Elwes as Westley and Robin Wright Penn as Buttercup in The Princess Bride. The Princess Bride has been one of my favorite movies since it came out, and I still love it today. I can actually recite most of the movie from memory to be honest. *blush* So, anyway, I’ve wanted to do a Princess Bride layout for a long time, and luckily I finally did it. Yay me! Any comments on the new layout are much apprecated, so feel free to email me.
Fanlisting Updates: Besouled, Dance Like the Devil, Enchanted, From Hell, Just A Little Nut, Just Plain Brilliant and Viggorli.

I’ve opened two new fanlistings. The first is Wild Elegance, the fanlisting for the Lisianthus flower. It was my mother’s favorite flower, so when I saw there wasn’t a fanlisting for it I absolutely had to apply. My other new fanlisting is for the relationship between Dracula and Mary in the movie Dracula 2000. The site is called Possession. I almost opened it last night, but I forgot to save the layout image, PSP had an error, and I lost it. I had remake earlier today, though I think I blended it a little better this time anyway.
There are new codes at Besouled and Scottish Hills and new affiliates at Besouled, Emancipation, That’s Not All Folks and Wild Elegance. Oh, and two new affiliates at my FL collective Grins and Lies.
Fanlisting Updates: Besouled, Clex – Not Just Subtext, Dance Like the Devil, Death Without Parole, Emancipation, Enchanted, Fall in Love, From Hell, Intense, Kyuuketsuki, Like God, Ready Mind, Ring Lore, Scottish Hills, Sinful Smile, Soft Shoe Style, Stumble & Swagger, That’s Not All Folks, There Was a Boy…, Vengeance and Wild Elegance.

Hostees first. My first ever hostee, Blair of Eaten By Yesterday, has gotten her own domain and moved out. I’m sad to see her go, but I’m happy that she’s gotten her own domain and is excited about it. Best of luck to her. The domain is Jaded-Desire.net, and is the newest affiliate of Forsaken Faith.
On the other hand, my newest hostee is the Black Slash Archive, which is run by Rae. It’s an archive of slash and femmeslash fanfiction, fanart and rants focused on The Black Family (Sirius, Narcissa, Bellatrix, Andromeda, Regulus, etc.) from the Harry Potter series. The site is brand new, but growing, so feel free to visit and/or submit your work.
I’m working on the “Beautiful People” fanlisting, as well as another fanlisting I’ve adopted — the Will Turner (PotC) Physical fanlisting. The lovely Tara (of True-Beauty.net) was going to close it, but I offered to adopt it from her so that the members wouldn’t be lost.
Finally, The Spice Must Flow (the fanlisting for the Scifi Channel Dune mini-series) has a new layout and new codes. I couldn’t stand the old layout for another moment honestly. I absolutely adore the new layout, though. Hope you guys like it, too.
Fanlisting Updates: Abominare Amor, Apropriate Sarcasm, Besouled, Dance Like the Devil, Dance Me to Eternity, Dear Tom, Heart’s Desire, His Place, Kiss and Tell, Kyuuketsuki, Like God, Madness or Brilliance, Perfect Sky is Torn, Pilot Error, Ready Mind, Refined Tastes, Stumble & Swagger, Ssserpent Tongue, That’s Not All Folks, There Was a Boy…, To Love and Protect, Vengeance, Victorious and Wetsuits & White Tuxedos.
February 12th, 2004
The biggest update is that my fanlisting collective Grins and Lies has a brand new layout. Version 2: Perfect Peach features the beautiful model Magdalena Wrobel. It’s rather simple, but I absolutely love it.
Nextly, I’ve opened another new fanlisting — yes, another one. *g* To Love and Protect is the TFL.org approved fanlisting for the relationship between Simon and River Tam from Firefly. I’ve also adopted a new fanlisting, for the song “Beautiful People” by Marilyn Manson. It should be up tomorrow I think.
Fanlisting Updates: Apropriate Sarcasm, Dance Like the Devil, The Good Doctor, Intense, Kiss and Tell, Kyuuketsuki, The Nature of Heroes, Pilot Error, Ready Mind, Soft Shoe Style, The Spice Must Flow, Ssserpent Tongue, and Wetsuits & White Tuxedos.
February 10th, 2004
One of my hostees, Katherine, has moved her fanlisting collective in. Her site is called Asian Fan, and you should go visit.
Two new fanlistings open from me. The first is for the brilliant voice actor Mel Blanc, who did the voices for nearly every Warner Bros. cartoon character (Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Tweety, etc.), not to mention many others (Woody Woodpecker, Barney Rubble, Speed Buggy, Heathcliff, Secret Squirrel, Tom & Jerry, etc.). The fanlisting is That’s Not All Folks. The second is for the Shikon no Tama (also known as the Jewel of Four Souls or the Shikon Jewel) from the anime/manga series Inuyasha. The site is called Besouled.
I also added two new affiliates to Grins and Lies, as well as changing the URL for Not An Addict.
Fanlisting Updates: Apropriate Sarcasm, Dear Tom, Dragon’s Eye, Emancipation, Enchanted, Fall in Love, From Hell, The Good Doctor, His Place, Intense, Kiss and Tell, Kyuuketsuki, Madness or Brilliance, Ready Mind, Ring Lore, Sinful Smile, Stumble & Swagger, Vengeance, Vibrant, and Wetsuits & White Tuxedos.

First and foremost, I have a brand new hostee all moved in. Man Behind the Mask is a detailed and growing fansite for the character Duo Maxwell from the anime and manga New Mobile Report Gundam Wing.

+ Like God – the Namelisting for the name Michael
+ Victorious – the Namelisting for the name Nicholas

Hello everyone! So sorry it’s been over a week since I last updated here. I’ve been updating my fanlistings regularly, even made two more, but I’ve felt a little under the weather recently and I was just too lazy to make a complete update here. *blush* Again, many apologies, and updates will return to their more frequent pace.
Well, hostees first I think. One of my hostees (Amy, who ran the “Walk a Little Straighter” fanlisting) has decided to close the site due to time constraints. I’m sad to see her go, but I completely understand her reasoning and wish her luck in the future. In the meantime, Arielle’s personal site Extremist, which features her fanfic, original fiction, poetry and weblog is now up and running. Also, Caroline has opened the TFL.org approved fanlisting for the actor Sean Bean (probably best known as Boromir in Lord of the Rings). The site is called Can’t Get Enough of You Baby, and you should all run over and join it. Additionally I have three more hostees in the process of moving in, so be looking for them soon.
My two new fanlistings are approved by the Taboo Fanlisting Network, and are once again for quotes. I’m completely obsessed with quotes, could you tell? The first is Madness or Brilliance, for the exchange between Jack and Will in Pirates of the Caribbean. Will says, “This is either madness or brilliance.” Jack replies, “You’d be surprised how often those two traits coincide.”
The other one is also for an exchange in Pirates of the Caribbean. Norrington says, “You forget your place, Turner.” Will replies, “It’s right here… between you and Jack.” The site it called His Place.
On a completely excited note, I’ve adopted two fanlistings which were on my “kill for” list! Yayness! I adopted the fanlisting for the Enchanted Rose from Beauty and the Beast from Joey, and the fanlisting for the character Inigo Montoya from Princess Bride from Hoppy. I’m just completely thrilled over both, many many thanks to Joey and Hoppy! I’ve already completed the Enchanted Rose fanlisting, but I’m waiting on the members list. As soon as I’m done here I’m going to grab my Princess Bride DVD so I can get some screencaps for the Inigo fanlisting and get that one up, too. Again, yayness!
