New LJ Layout! 
17th-Mar-2006 06:13 pm
New layout at antigonist. Mafia Leon by way of F. Scott Fitzgerald. (My mind works in odd ways.)

And, er, EEEEEEEE!!! Number one kill-for finally made it to the troubles list. (I may have reported it...I feel so dirty!) Er. I know rydia and _skydancer are happy with that update.

Actual updates later.

Excellent! I just finished reading Great Gatsby in English.

Wooo Gatsby! Although I only really grew to appreciate it in the years after English class.

All my icons save one match now. I'm horrid like that. :o Grayscale makes everything match.

Heee..heeeheeee!! :DD

I've always loved the whole grey/red combo thing. Very awesome.

And would you mind helping me with Enth3 again? I started reorganizing my FL collective and for some reason I can't upload a picture for each FL - I keep getting an error T__T;

Hopefully you're not tired to hear me repeating this whole thing again and again, but God bless your layouts. *hails*

For _skydancer: if the error you're getting is not something about incorrect home path, there seems to be a script bug for one of the image upload functions in enth3 that will need a little tweak to work. There should be a post about it in the Enth3 user forum - just find the latest post that has my name as the original poster ;)

Looks like Janice has it covered. :D

*also enjoys black/white/red and variations thereof*

And Tamisa, good luck with Gippal! You deserve it, after Seifer.
18th-Mar-2006 06:36 pm (UTC)
Well, Janice I have no idea what's going on - I get a "Unknown column 'id' in 'where clause'" error, and I've looked up your posts and don't follow. Haha, I'm like a coding idiot ;D

I think my paths are correct but then again I'm wrong most of the time. My owned imagess directory is /home2/leemat/public_html/fan/enth3/ and I've checked to see if my folders have all been CHMOD to 777 (which they are). Errrm yeah.

And thanks Alex :3

F. Scott Fitzgerald....*happy sigh*

The layout looks gooood!
18th-Mar-2006 04:43 pm (UTC)
Thank you :) The combination of survival horror and the jazz age cannot lose. It is not my doing.
18th-Mar-2006 12:05 pm (UTC)
you're the best :D glad the fl you want is on the trouble list if you want to take it :)
18th-Mar-2006 04:45 pm (UTC)
Oh, I do want to take it. But I feel kind of horrible saying that.

Yay Nell!
21st-Mar-2006 03:11 am (UTC)
aw dont feel horrible if you reported it because it wasnt being maintained or whatever, cos they should have managed it if they took on that kinda responsibility. well, that's what i reckon :) *squish*
18th-Mar-2006 12:32 pm (UTC)
Your new layout looks gorgeous - very noir. Good luck with the kill-for!
18th-Mar-2006 04:52 pm (UTC)
I like greyscale, it's easy to cover flaws in the colorscheme with it.

I'm kind of doubtful it will get removed, but there's always the three strikes rule. And, if it does get removed, I'm hoping for the "no one else applied so you get the FL automatically" principle.

And this is sort of random, but I took your poetic flaws quiz, and I got forced rhyme. And it's so true.

Sorry if this is out of nowhere, but awesome layout. I love the colors and the old film effect. The world needs more Mafia Leon.
18th-Mar-2006 05:47 pm (UTC)
Thanks for posting the render on Amph and spreading the Mafia Leon love to the world!

Yeah. Honestly, he cannot lose. Mafia Leon is made of awesome.

I'm not sure what you mean by that. But er, Locke! He makes me so happy!
18th-Mar-2006 07:32 pm (UTC)
Someone over at tafl board commented that they were stalking Locke. I thought for a moment you'd gotten into anime, and then it was strange because I thought you were the only Locke fangirl! So me thinks if it gets removed there will be competition. But you know, you have a srhine. Blind them with content!

I have read nothing by Fitzgerald, but great layout, as usual. :)
18th-Mar-2006 11:48 pm (UTC)
Okay. So I stalk people who also stalk Locke. And I think I like him more than she does. (Actually, I'm of the opinion that it's impossible to like Locke more than I do. You might like him as much as me, but not more.)

Look at her wishlist:
http:// passion.ayamari.net/index.php?x=wishlist
Notice how Locke is just sort of randomly there? Compare with mine. (Also, eeek, a lot of mine are on there. We have some similar tastes.)

It's sort of on the one hand, Jackie KNOWS I'm obsessed, hell, everyone knows I'm obsessed, and I have a very good track record in the category. (Applied 4 times, approved 4 times :o) But on the other hand, I own a lot of FLs in the fandom now. (I think FF is all counted as one fandom? I don't have any FFVI fls.)

It's just one quote, really. "One time he killed a man who found out he was nephew to Von Hindenburg and second cousin to the devil."
19th-Mar-2006 01:13 am (UTC)
I think finding a person who likes Locke more than you would be a very difficult task. To put it mildy. :3 If the fanlisting was removed, and you didn't get it...I mean, FFVI doesn't have the fanbase of some of the other games. And I have no idea if FF is counted as one fandom. I'd like to think that would be viewed on a case by case basis. Its not like you've applied for those fanlistings just to have one. Everyone knows you really love the subjects. Unlike...some. I just can't see owning those FLs as going against you, and if you were approved for Locke no one could begrudge you on the basis of owning those FLs, because your Locke love is like...a divine thing.

Grey scale and F. Scott Fitzgerald = ♥ After the Great Gatsby, I just stopped reading Fitzgerald works.. until recently I started in This Side of Paradise... i think partially because I got inspired by browsing your Fitzgerald related sites, hehe x)
19th-Mar-2006 01:05 am (UTC)
TSoP comes highly reccomended by me, in its odd and bumbling way. :D :D I liked Tender is the Night and The Beautiful and Damned too.
19th-Mar-2006 01:52 am (UTC)
Tender is the Night.. wasn't that a story based upon the mental unstableness of his wife?
*did some googling* whoa, I thought the name 'Legend of Zelda' was just.. its original name made up by its creators. I'm sort of surprised it was inspired on Fitzgerald's wife?! :O wow, there's a revelation XD

oh and uhm, good luck on Locke! The excitement & tension when a kill-for FL is on Troubles.. lol ^_^d
19th-Mar-2006 01:55 am (UTC)
OMG huge tangent here if you are interested.

TitN is really autobiographical, but so is...everything else he wrote. Except for a few short stories and maybe The Last Tycoon?

Yeah. *twiddles thumbs @ TFL*
19th-Mar-2006 02:23 am (UTC)
oh, thanks! ♥ there's nothing better than some useful late-night reading~ I love the era, but I guess I never was interested enough in Fitzgerald to in turn find out more about his wife.. yet.. her life was quite.. sad, actually ^^;;

So that explains why the Great Gatsby bears so much resemblence to some of the descriptions of his own life-style~

ok, i think i need to stop the LJ comment spammage xD *runs off to read more from your site*
