* Your top fandoms: My shrine collective is a pretty good example of my long-term fandoms (Gintama, Macross, Jojo, SMT), and my fanlisting collective a very carefully curated list of my all time favorite subjects: all of those are always a safe bet!! For stuff that I'm super into right now that I haven't had the chance to build stuff for (yet, hehehe):
  • 1. Overwatch (Genji, Hanzo, McCree, Reaper... Mccree/Hanzo :blush: )
    2. POKEMON... (I'm playing Moon right now! MY STARTER IS LITTEN!! But I love Clefairy & Gengar a lot and they are my OGs. I also love Grimsley!)
    3. Mystic Messenger (Yoosung!!, Jumin)
    4. Haikyuu!! (Kageyama Tobio)
    5. HUNTERxHUNTER (Killua Zoldyck, Killua & Gon's Beautiful Friendship, the Chimera Ant arc...)
    6. Animal Crossing (KID CAT!, Joey, Vesta, Lolly, Mira... also I may or may not be in love with Cyrus don't judge me)
    7. I love SHINee (Minho) and EXO (Suho) and I also really love BIGBANG! (TOP!)
* Gifts you'd like to receive: I'm pretty open to anything thrown at me! Buttons for my collectives, shrine related, non-shrine related, fanart, fanfics, pretty edits i can reblog on Tumblr (BLAME LETHE FOR THIS IDK), custom made QR clothes for my ACNL mayor! :D As a side note: I have a number of fanlistings that lack the amount of codes they should have, so codes in those areas would be more than welcome! Otherwise get down with your bad self and do what you want... I'll appreciate any amount of your time. :heart:
* Gifts you'd prefer to avoid: No layouts, please! I'm pretty picky about my site design & I'm also probably too busy/lazy to update a layout even if I got one. :sob:
* Comments: If you would like to stalk me further please feel free to check out my Tumblr as it more or less gives a pretty good representation of what I'm into at the moment... :swt: If I think of anything else I'll edit this post!

Ahh, I love Secret Santa, but I'm always running them and never get to participate so I'm soooo looking forward to this! :blush:

* Name: Lethe
* Preferred Contact Method: Email: lethe [AT]
* Collective URL:
* Your top fandoms:
  • I'm into a ton of things, but I've mainly listed popular/well-known stuff here so that the lists don't get bloated. Here's further info: MyAnimeList (manga; if you display by score, score 7-10 usually means I like it) / MyAnimeList Profile (has lists of favourite series and characters) / Backloggery (video games; sidebar lists my favourites) / joined fanlistings (for specific characters/relationships) / Tumblr
  • Manga/Manhwa: Angel Sanctuary, God Child (Cain/Riff), NANA, HunterxHunter (also the anime; Killua, Hisoka/Illumi, Machi), One Piece (no post-timeskip; Robin, Nami, Zoro/Luffy), Uraboku, Tokyo Babylon, Ciel: The Last Autumn Story
  • Anime: Digimon Adventure, Free! (MakoHaruuu), Revolutionary Girl Utena (Juri, Kozue, Shiori)
  • Video Games: Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ (Lupin, Cardia, Victor), Odin Sphere (Gwendolyn, Oswald, Mercedes), The World Ends with You (Shiki, Neku, Joshua), some Kingdom Hearts (Riku, Naminé, Roxas, Aqua; Riku/Sora), Amnesia: Memories (only Shin's pretty face)

    (THESE AREN'T OFFICIALLY MY "TOP FANDOMS" OK but they're the stuff best suited for gifts and/or stuff I'm into RN!!!)
* Gifts you'd like to receive:
  • Anything personal and creative most of all!! <3 I really enjoy graphics (and stuff like Tumblr photosets that I can reblog) depicting things I love. And manga colourings (stolen from Kate below)! And poetry! And pretty quotes! AND THE COMBINATION OF THAT STUFF. (stuff like this and this) Really, it doesn't have to be website-related at all. It'd be great to get something that has some of YOU in it - and some of me. Then it'll be something of us. Hehe. :heart: omg. /o\
  • Recommendations of songs with pretty lyrics that remind you of a character or relationship I like. Especially when the songs are quiet, melancholic and sad.
  • Personal fanfic recommendations of obscure things I'm into. ... If you're on Tumblr and there's graphic edits or fanart that makes one want to tear out their own heart, share them with me. I need pain.
  • Links to interesting essays (meta, analysis, interpretation, etc.) relevant to any fandom I'm into (not just the ones listed above). THESE ARE MY FAVOURITE THING OK (which is why I'm so tl;dr).
  • Buttons for shrines (88x31, 100x35, 200x40) because I reside in button hell. Several shrines are missing 1-2 of those button sizes too.
  • Site resources, specifically paper textures, and elegant graphics/brushes that can be used as dividers/hrs. Please let me know the source too (or link resource sites!) so I can give proper credit.
  • Simple layout (or header/bg) for joined fanlistings because the current one is a lazy filler.
  • Layout (or header/bg) for Claymore Gallery because the current one is completely unsuitable for a gallery in many ways.
* Gifts you'd prefer to avoid: shrine layouts, personal icons, wallpapers (weird resolutions and CLUTTER on desktop ok), fun media for shrines where no media section is planned (media is great, and I'd love any fanwork!! but depending on the shrine, I might not put it up on a single page, just so you know in advance! maybe on a separate gifts page though :D)
* Comments: DON'T WORRY TOO MUCH ABOUT THIS OK. The first thing listed is all I need. You can send me a ~holiday card~ with a graphic edit or poetry every week and I'd be super happy!!
Both despair and ecstasy are part of the elements that compose a person.

Anime/Manga: Boku no Hero Academia, Shokugeki no Souma, Lovely Complex, Haikyuu!!, Daiya no Ace, Yuri on Ice!! - honestly, I am into wayyyy too many things to list and I still love old and past series - feel free to take a look into MAL account.

Cartoons/Books/Movies: Avatar: the Last Air Bender, Voltron, Gravity Falls, Disney movies (I am guilty of loving the Disney Fairies)

* Your top fandoms:
  • ~ Voltron: I probably talk about Takashi Shirogane on a daily basis. I love that man haha! However I adore the entire series, so anything can work here!
  • ~ Orange (manga/anime): I'm adding this series in because I am absolutely in love with this series. It has shattered and built my heart up again and again. I absolutely adore Kakeru Naruse, and anything involving this entire series is going to warmly welcomed.
  • ~ Bleach (manga): This is one of the safest places to bet on things that I like, I am a massive Rukia Kuchiki fan, and I have intense love and respect or the Ichigo/Rukia duo, as well as Rukia/Renji. But lets be real, IchiRukiRen gives me life.
  • ~ Pokemon: This subject has a very very special place in my heart. I've been playing since pre-school with my best pal. My personal favorite Pokemon is Arcanine but Vaporeon is also very dear to me! Anything Pokemon themed would be AMAZING!
  • ~ Katekyo Hitman Reborn (manga): I'll never give this series up! /sobs/ Subjects that stick out from KHR would be Tsunayoshi Sawada, Takeshi Yamamoto, Haru Miura, Hibari Kyoya, 2786 (Tsuna/Haru), and 8059 (Yamamoto/Gokudera).
  • ~ Bulk Favorites: Free! (RIN MATSUOKA), Love Live! (Umi & Yoshiko), Yuri on Ice (Yuuri Katsuki), Haikyuu (Nishinoya & Kageyama), and art in all forms.
* Gifts you'd like to receive:
  • ~ I'm going to go ahead and totally agree with Lethe (points up), that these gifts don't have to necessarily be website related! Something creative and personal is ALWAYS welcomed! I am very sentimental and will keep every gift dear to my heart. ;;; A rock with some paint on it would sit by window until the day died hahaha! A little sprite, a pretty tumblr graphic, a drawing or fan art, I LOVE manga colorings, a personal play list or fan mix! Anything and everything would be cherished by me. ;;;;
  • ~ However I would be more than accepting of website related things!! I'm not picky at all! :3 Buttons (88x31 & 200x40) are always welcomed because I struggle with them a lot!! T_T Transparent PNGs of the above subjects. Layout headers, full layouts (For my fanlisting collective, Aquali, or even a cool contact page!). Twitter icons or headers, ahh really anything goes! ♥
* Gifts you'd prefer to avoid:
The only gifts I would probably say to avoid would be.. A layout for Hakuren.Org, phone wallpapers, and desktop wallpapers, because I AM SO LAZY WITH WALLPAPERS. haha!!
* Comments: All the things listed above are subjects I would most likely create shrines or things for! :D I know I'm slow (and scared) when it comes to releasing shrines, but there are a lot hidden away deep within my domain. @_@;;; Please don't stress over my list very much, you don't have to strictly gift anything I listed! Please give yourself absolute freedom! :D I am extremely easy going with gifts, and I am honestly happy to just be a part of a Secret Santa!

- Fire Emblem: Fates: It's hard to pick favourites here, but the Royal Sisters, Laslow, Odin, Soleil, and basically every girl from the Conqest side is who I tend to swoon over. I don't really have any ships save for anything with Soleil as long as it's gay. Solphelia, Solnina, etc.
- Tales of Xillia: I haven't played 2 yet but!! JudeMillaLeia are my favourites but seperately and apart. Tiny soft spot for Alvin too.
- Macross (Frontier, Delta): I'm still watching Delta, but SherylRanka is my biggest OTP and two of my fvourite characters... As far as Delta goes, Freya and Mikumo are my favs.
* Gifts you'd like to receive: I would be okay with just about anything; a new layout for s shrine that needs one, and phone/desktop wallpapers are ones I will always appreciate. I really don't have too much of preference! I'll appreciate just about anything. :>
* Gifts you'd prefer to avoid: I can't really think of anything I wouldn't like, like I mentioned before, I'm pretty open to anything. Thank you!!
* Comments: I'm so excited for this! Feel free to check me out of Twitter if you would like to see more of what I'm into!
I used to practice smiling when i'm feeling sad, y'know.
