projects

Here you can have a look at my projects and find out what I'm working on at the moment. Keep in mind that I'm quite busy during the year, so it might take a while before these projects are online/completed, although I'll try my very best to make these ideas come true. That said, you can now take a peek!

shrines

These are the shrines that I'm already working on and that you can expect in the near future.

name: Metamorphosis
complete: 5%
what is it?: Watanuki Kimihiro Shrine

One of my biggest ambitions when I was younger (and even now, I think) was to make a shrine about my absolute favourite character among the many manga series that I've read. Only problem was, there wasn't a particular character that fitted my idea of 'absolute favourite'. Therefore, although I had many favourite characters, I never did anything. I thought I'd wait for that character to arrive, so I waited. Then, one day, I read xxxHolic. I fell in love with it immediately, from the very first page. I loved all the characters, but there was one that instantly caught my eye - Watanuki Kimihiro, born on April 1st, whose name is written just like his birthday. There are many reasons why I like this character, and if I were to write all of them here, I could go on for hours and hours. (I do plan on explaining everything in the shrine, though.) Anyway, I feel very attached to this character and I do believe he's become a part of me, somehow. Heck, he's one of the characters that inspired the name for my domain! So, making a shrine about him is the least I could do to honor this character, really. I have my mind set on this one, so it definitely will be done.


name: Flames of Ice

what is it?: Hiwatari Kai Fanlisting & Shrine

Kai is probably my all-time favourite character, along with Watanuki. Honestly, I hadn't planned on making a shrine to him, too, but when I was approved to own his fanlisting over at TAFL I just knew I had to turn it into a shrine, too. Beyblade has been one of my biggest fandoms ever and Kai has been my favourite character since he first appeared in the anime. So, I thought this was a great opportunity for me to make a tribute to him, too. I'm pretty sure I would've done it anyway, even if I wasn't approved for his fanlisting. Unfortunately most of the shrine section is still under construction, so for now only the fanlisting section is up and running. I will be adding more contents as time goes by, whenever I've got some time to dedicate to this tribute.

These are other projects of mine which I haven't started yet, but that will definitely be done at some point in the future.

» a Blair Waldorf & Chuck Bass (Gossip Girl) shrine;
I have to be honest - at first, I was planning on making a shrine only to Blair. But, as the series went on, I found myself getting more and more 'attached' to Chuck, to the point that not only these two are now my favourite characters among all the TV shows that I watch, but I can't imagine making a tribute to either of them without including the other in it. They both have complex and amazing personalities that I would love to analyze (read: write entire essays on) and their epic relationship has kept me watching this show all these years. They both had an impact on me, both as characters and as a couple, so I will do whatever is in my power to make the best tribute I can about them.

» a Sakura Kinomoto (Card Captor Sakura/Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle) shrine;
Where to begin. If you know this character at all and if you read the page about the domain name, then you will know this girl has some major connection with the domain. Not only that, Sakura (along with the series she's in) has had a big impact on my life as well, ever since I was little. It was practically because of her (and CCS in general) that I got into manga/anime and Japanese culture in general. I feel like I owe part of who I am today to this girl and it would only make sense that I'd make a tribute to her, as to sort of show my 'gratitude' towards her... as wierd as that may sound. This project may take a while to bring to life, but I feel like it's almost my 'duty' to do this, so it will be done at some point. The shrine will be about Sakura both in TRC and CCS and it will be part of her fanlisting (approved by TAFL <3).

» a Rei Hino/Sailor Mars (Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon) shrine;
Rei/Mars is the first character I've ever loved from Sailor Moon. There was just something that immediately drew me to her when I was younger - and it's still there today. May it be because her element is fire (and fire is my favourite element) and I find her attacks to be some of the coolest of the whole series (as well as her Sailor fuku), may it be because of her long black hair and cool attitude, may it be because of her miko powers - I just love this character. Among all the inner senshi, Rei/Mars is the one that definitely catches my attention whenever I'm reading/watching Sailor Moon. So, for all these reasons, I'd really like to make a shrine to her (also because I noticed that she's the only senshi who hasn't got a lot of shrines like other senshis do).

» a Haruka Tenoh/Sailor Uranus & Michiru Kaioh/Sailor Neptune (Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon) shrine;
Yes, when Mao introduced me to Sailor Moon after many years, we both found that we liked the same pairings, one of them being Haruka/Michiru. Not only we like them together, but also as characters. More specifically, I think that Mao likes Haruka better, while I like Michiru - so it's like a perfect match. We're going to make this shrine together, but first we need to gather info and contents. We would love to make this shrine along with Seiya's.


» a Hotaru Tomoe/Sailor Saturn (Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon) shrine;
I know what you're thinking: "What's up with all these BSSM projects?!". Yes, I admit that I may have way too many BSSM related projects, but when it comes to my favourite characters, I just can't help it. Hotaru/Sailor Saturn is another favourite senshi of mine and I'd feel bad leaving her out of the picture. I like how she's different from all the other senshis (she has the power to destroy Earth with just one swing of her weapon and the outer senshis really try her best not to awake her because she brings destruction, etc.) and I think my love for her increased when I watched the musicals. Let's all hope I can make this tribute come true!


» a Lightning (Final Fantasy XIII/XIII-2) shrine;
Before I bought FFXIII, I was looking forward to playing it mostly to get to know the protagonist, that is, Lightning. I was fascinated by her, by her character design and her distant personality. I looked forward to getting to know her and her past and to have her in my team. After some time, I became pretty disappointed with FFXIII and its gameplay, but I still loved Lightning. I'd even go as far as say that she is the only reason why I kept playing it and the reason why I want to play FFXIII-2. There's just something about her that fascinates me. She's strong, independent, cares for her friends and family and generally, she's just a badass character. I'd love to dedicate a shrine to her, after plyaing FFXIII-2.

» a Tadase Hotori (Shugo Chara!) shrine;
Okay, this is really just a little idea I have in my head. I've been watching Shugo Chara! for some time now and I think Tadase might be my most favourite character from this series. I have lots of favourite characters from Shugo Chara! (Ikuto, Utau, Rima and Kairi, just to mention a few), but... let's say that Tadase is on the right path to becoming my 'number 1'. And it makes me really sad to see that half of the SC! fandom hates/bashes him. (Yeah, that's probably half the reason why I thought of making a shrine to him - just to show that there is someone out there who actually likes this character and generally just to 'go against' all the bashing.) As of now, I have watched the first two seasons of Shugo Chara!, but I still need to read the manga. Anyway, I really like the idea of making a shrine to this little prince, so there's a good possibility that this shrine will see the light of day... someday. I might also end up making one-page shrines for the other characters I like. Who knows.

» a Grandia fansite;
To be completely honest, I hadn't planned on making this. Honestly. Blame it on my impulsive self and inner fangirl. Back in summer 2010, I was approved by TFL to run the fanlisting for Grandia. Now, I rarely talk about this video game because it's really old (and also very few people seem to know about its existence), but you must know that Grandia is definitely my favourite video game OF ALL TIMES. I fell completely in love with this game years ago, when I was just a little girl - 6 or 7 years old. I went on a quest to find this game (it was extremely hard to find in Italy at that time) and, in the end, I managed to find it and play it. Ever since I first started playing it, I knew this would be my forever favourite game. Of course, I still play this game today, when I have some free time on my hands. And I'm in my twenties now. Do your calculations on how many years I've loved this game. Yeah. In my heart there will never be a game that will beat Grandia. So yeah... the idea of making a little tribute/fansite to Grandia is really tempting. I know this game like the back of my hand at this point... I have to come up with some interesting content, too, though.

ideas

While the projects are something I'm 100% sure I'm going to make, these ones are just ideas, meaning I'm not entirely sure I'll make them. Maybe they could happen, and maybe not, depending on many things. Take a look at this list if you want to know what's going on in my mind.

» a Seiya Kou/Sailor Star Fighter (Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon) shrine;
Well, well, well. Thanks to Mao, I am in love with Sailor Moon all over again. Seiya is definitely one of my most beloved characters from this series. I find her to be a really 'refreshing' character from what I'm used to seeing in animangas. Also, once you get to know her and her feelings, it's just... heart-breaking. She's a character that I love deeply and so does Mao. In fact, we will be making this shrine together as soon as we come up with an epic name and contents.

» a Hachimitsu to Clover (Honey & Clover) series shrine;
I've always wanted to read this series and I managed to do it not too long ago. I fell in love with it completely and immediately. This is like no other "slice of life" manga I've ever read before. The characters and the situations feel so real that you really feel like you're getting to know the characters and that they're somehow becoming your friends and you get so involved in their lives that you never want to let go. And the characters are so different, that you can see a part of yourself in every one of them. That's how I feel anyway. This series is one of my absolute favourites and I want to show my love for it.

» a Eirika (Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones) shrine (possibly one-page shrine);
Eirika is my favourite character out of all the Fire Emblem games. The first FE game that I ever played was The Sacred Stones and I liked her immediately. She's amazing: she's strong, caring, willing to do anything to rescue her friends and her brother and her relationship with Ephraim is just so sweet. She quickly became my favourite character out of them all and I'd love to dedicate something to her, even a one-page shrine.

» a Yuuko Ichihara (xxxHOLiC) shrine;
Something weird happened. I was re-reading xxxHOLiC for my Watanuki shrine and somehow this idea of dedicating something to Yuuko as well came into my head. And, once an idea comes into my head, it rarely gets out. While Watanuki is, hands down, my absolute favourite character (not only of the series, but of any anime/manga/game/tv show/book ever), I must admit that I love Yuuko too. She's so mysterious, funny, knowledgeable and of course, we mustn't forget her amazing magical powers. There's just something fascinating about this character and I want to dedicate a tribute to her too.

» a xxxHOLiC (and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle) series shrine;
What's that, you say? Too many xxxHOLiC related projects? Why yes, I am indeed crazy for this series... and crazy in general. Crazy enough to want to make a tribute not only to the main characters, but to the series itself. To be honest, I had already started such a project back when I had my previous domain - they were actually two sites, one of xxxHolic and one for Tsubasa; but then the domain expired and those projects never saw the light of day. But I would like to make it, because xxxHolic is my favourite manga series of all time and Tsubasa is strictly connected to it and both of them have had such a huge impact on my life.

» a Kisshu (Toyko Mew Mew) shrine;
Time to tell you a little secret: Kisshu was a huge anime crush of mine (although Kai remains number one). My first fanlisting was about him and a shrine of mine was partially dedicated to him (it was about all the alines from TMM). I also made a physical fanlisting to him at some point. Come to think of it, I've made quite a lot of websites to Kisshu, but I never actually sat down a written an entire shrine to him. But I feel like he deserves it. He's an interesting character and I still have a soft spot for him today, even though TMM is not as big a fandom in my life as it once was. But I remember with melancholy and happiness the days where I used to obsess over him and I feel like he should get a shrine, after all this time. (In the meantime, I'll still fangirl over the fact that I got his fanlisting.)

» a Northern Lights (His Dark Materials) tribute;
I was always fascinated by Philipp Pullman's trilogy, His Dark Materials. I finally managed to read them fairly recently and I have very strong opinions on them. I loved the first book completely; the other two... not so much. Upon re-watching the (terrible) film adpatation of Northern Lights (which is known as The Golden Compass), I was struck by this crazy idea of making a tribute, but to the first book only, which is the one I enjoyed the most. If this project ever comes to life, it will also contain my essays opinions on the other two books and why I think they don't live up to the first one.

» a Maron/Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne tribute;
I remember Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne with fondness. It was one of the first manga series that I read online (it wasn't out in Italy yet) and I loved it. I loved the story, the concept behind it and the characters. I particularly loved Maron, because I could relate an awful lot to her (my parents were in the process of divorcing at the time I was reading KKJ) and I admired her for her stength and perseverance. I'm quite torn if I should make a shrine to Maron or just a general tribute to the series. We'll see in the future.

» various Pokemon shrines;
I've been obessed with Pokemon for quite a while (I got ino it when I was 9-10 years old) and, to be honest, I'm quite surprised that I haven't dedicated any website to it. (I did make my first website about Pokemon couples, especially Satoshi/Kasumi, but that was ages ago.) Now that I'm into the games again, I decided that I should make a website or two and I have plenty of ideas in my head. Some of the tributes I'm thinking of making are: a Gary/Shigeru Oak/Blue (Green) (games+anime+manga) shrine, a Silver (games+manga) shrine, a Misty/Kasumi (games+anime) shrine, an Ash+Misty/Satoshi+Kasumi (anime) shrine, a Vulpix shrine, an Umbreon shrine... and possibly others. All I need to do is read the manga and re-watch the anime a bit. Wish me good luck!
