This is the page where I store every single update that's been posted to the site. You can tell how far the Corner's come by looking at these, and hopefully it will continue to grow for a long time. Updates are in descending chronological order.
Site started February 15, 2009
January 22, 2016
The new layout is slowly making its way toward completion. It should be finished by the next update!
November 28, 2015
Something looks a bit different! Yes, folks, that's right -- after four years, I finally decided the Corner's layout was due for a change. It's still a work in progress, so pardon my dust and anything that seems unsightly for the next few weeks -- the new layout should be complete and prettier than ever very soon!
The most notable change is that I no longer have all my pages listed here on the homepage, forcing you to scroll and scroll until you find what you're looking for. Now, the former homepage sections have their own pages listed in the navigation sidebar, and those will lead you to the lists of all the other pages just as before. My hope is that this new system will be more convenient and make it easier to get around the site -- I hope you guys like it!
In addition, I received a new blooper from Draco and put up a new news article (about a never-before-seen character invented by TSE!), and it seems that Felina's Jellicle World, which came back to life for a short time, has vanished again. I moved its link back into the Graveyard on the Links page.
September 27, 2015
Not much going on this month, but my university wifi has access to Freewebs again, so that's exciting! I've started a large-scale extension of the Romantical Cats page that I'll continue to work on across future updates; also, it seems Now and Forever, the CATS webdirectory, has gone down. I've moved its link to the Graveyard on the Links page.
August 27, 2015
This summer has proven to be surprisingly busy -- so much so that I skipped the July update entirely, and even now this update probably isn't worth the wait. It's just a small collection of minor things (some of which have been up on the site for a month or more, before I decided the July update wasn't happening), but let's get right to it:
I've posted several new videos, changed up the format of the Videos page, and rewritten all of the video descriptions. I also put up a new piece of fan art and changed the fan art albums so that they now display contributions from newest to oldest rather than oldest to newest. I put up a new trivia question as a feeble apology for my temporary absence. And, finally, the wonderful Hailey has decided she may be closing her fansite, Starrgaze, and has allowed me to post her information about the Japanese production of CATS. It now resides on the CATS Through The Years page alongside the other foreign productions. It's been great to have you around, Hailey!
And in just a few days now, I'll be back at school. Whether the weird internet problem there has been fixed, we shall have to wait and see. If I disappear for another few months, don't be alarmed -- it's not my fault!
June 26, 2015
I've been a bit busy the past month, so I haven't had much time to work on the site -- but now my summer has officially begun and I have a ton of new content under way and ready to be revealed in the coming months!
This month's Big Thing is that I've completely reworked the Are You Obsessed? page. It now rates your obsession according to a series of complex mathematical algorithms, backed by extensive scientific research to determine where exactly on the spectrum you fall. (Translation: it uses a point system based on arbitrary numbers that I made up.) It's still a work in progress, but in its current state it is mostly done, so go see how you measure up!
May 30, 2015
Not much in the way of the promised new stuff just yet, but I assure you it's coming! What I do have this month is the final five chapters of Yoshi's fanfic Company. So nice to see a multi-chapter fanfic live to completion -- go check it out!
I've revisited the Awards page and given the formatting a few tweaks; I've also rewritten the criteria for all my site awards so that they give a (hopefully) more thorough idea of what I'm looking for. If there are any fansites still out there, I'd love to see some applicants! The Trivia page has a new feature as well: it now has buttons you can click to show and hide the answers to all the questions, and I've adjusted the formatting accordingly. Go on, test your knowledge!
May 31 edit:
I have just discovered that Felina's Jellicle World, the biggest CATS fansite on the internet, is back online! I've moved its link on the Links page out of the graveyard and back where it belongs; it's very much worth a visit.
April 10, 2015
So . . . it's been a few months. If you've been keeping up with the recent site updates, you may remember that I've been having a problem with not being able to access Freewebs on the internet server at my university; well, that's exactly why I didn't post a February or March update. There's not much I can do about that, but for now, I have site access again until at least September -- and I have three months' worth of update material, so sit back, relax, and enjoy some new content!
(It's clear, though, that I'll have to be more diligent about checking my e-mail. I actually received a very concerned message from a visitor after I failed to post a February update . . . oops. Really, guys, the site isn't dying if I skip one or two months' updates, I promise!)
First and foremost, the Corner is now SIX YEARS OLD! How time flies! If this site was a child, it would be old enough to be in school by now. Just think about that.
So, new content! Silenthunder sent in a new crossover, and it looks like we have a new contributor joining us: Yoshi! Yoshi sent in -- get ready for this -- a new OC, FIVE fanfics (one of which is multi-chapter), a hearty list of bloopers that effectively doubled the length of that page, a new pairing for the Romantical Cats page, and has agreed to enter the contest! Thank you so much!
And now, housekeeping. I've given both the OC page and the Bloopers page some much-needed TLC; they've both been reformatted and polished up. I've updated the descriptions for my own OCs, and the insanity on the Bloopers page has received a few tweaks (and will likely receive more in future updates). I'm taking down the Fanlistings page, which has been gathering dust anyway, because I checked recently and it turns out only one of the fanlistings actually still exists (and even then it hasn't updated since 2010). I'm temporarily taking down the link to the Fanfiction Writing Guide because I want to rewrite parts of it -- AGAIN -- but it should be back soon.
Speaking of gathering dust, Yoshi has brought my attention to the long-neglected contest. It IS still open and I would love to see more people enter! Bearing this in mind, I will remove any entrants who don't look like they're still with us. Kalliste and QuaxoRascal, if you're still interested in entering the contest, you have until NEXT MONTH'S UPDATE to let me know -- otherwise your names will be removed and your claimed pairings will be put up for grabs!
January 21, 2015
A couple of housekeeping things first off: I've done some slight reorganization of the Bloopers page and the Junkyard Junk Drawer. The Junk Drawer now has a navigation system and some new content, and some of the existing content has been cleaned up a bit. The Bloopers page is still under construction, since I've been neglecting it for a LONG time, but I'm working on polishing it up!
January 1, 2015 (@ 1:47 am)
Happy New Year, faithful visitors and fellow night owls!
2014 was a good year, so here's hoping 2015 will continue that trend! The January update is looking like it's going to be a juicy one, so ready yourselves for that. This one-update-a-month thing seems to be working out quite well and that's how it's going to stay! Stay tuned for awesomeness later in the month!
December 29, 2014
This month we have two new members, so welcome to Mistolover101 and JemimaMistoFan! (Nice to see that the Misto-fan population is still in good standing.) Mistolover101 sent in a new songfic, so be sure to go check that out. Also, the trivia question has been up for a pretty long time, so I've finally taken it down and put up a new one. Thanks to everyone who entered! And, since the London revival of CATS hit the stage this past month, I've put up a news article about that on the CATS in the News page.
Finally, I've created a brand-new submission form just for OCs! I'd been meaning to do this for a while, but Mistolover101 sent me a lovely message that reminded me to actually do it. Mistolover101, feel free to be the first one to use the new form! (Though if you'd prefer emailing your OCs for me, that's fine too.)
November 29, 2014
The Corner is back in business! This is going to be a long-ish update because I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that the problem with me not being able to access the site seems to be that Freewebs simply does not work on the Internet server at my university. I have absolutely no idea why. This won't be a problem for a couple of months yet, since in December and January I'll be at home where Freewebs actually works, but once next semester starts . . . well, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
But the good news is I've had two months' worth of update material piled up, so strap on your seatbelts! There's a new crossover and a bunch of new bloopers (I really need to redo that page . . .), both from a guest. There's a new fanfic and a new OC both from Georgia, or Gingersnap, who has absolutely the coolest reason I've seen so far for creating an OC! And we also have a new member -- thanks for joining, MeMeDoTa!
Also, I've been asked by VictoriaWhiteCat to promote her new roleplay forum, Jellicle Roleplay. It's brand-spanking-new and could use a little love, so please go check it out! This fandom is getting so small, so fansites need all the support they can get.
Speaking of which, there's a bit more bad news floating around. Firstly, Felina's Jellicle World, probably the biggest CATS fansite ever, seems to be stuck in limbo with all those other great fansites, so I've moved its link on the Links page into the graveyard. Secondly, just a few days ago the musical Chicago bumped CATS down to the third longest-running Broadway show as opposed to the second; I've linked to a news article about that on the CATS in the News page.
All of this is why I just want you guys to know I'm not going to let the Corner die! At a time like this, it's more important than ever to keep the community alive.
October 30, 2014
All right, this month's update isn't really an update -- it's more of an announcement. Nothing's happening to the site, so don't worry, but Freewebs hasn't been loading properly for me this entire month, not letting me view any pages or even sign in. I don't know what's going on -- other people don't seem to be having this problem at all -- but I'm posting this update from a different computer where I don't have access to my files, because this is the only access to the site I can get. I just wanted to let you all know; I'm not abandoning the Corner, I promise! Hopefully Freewebs will be up and running again by next month's update. Until then, happy Halloween and thanks for your patience!
September 26, 2014
I've just about finished up the new Progression of CATS page (which has been renamed to CATS Through the Years), put up a new (somewhat tragic) news article, and there's another new crossover from MeMeDoTa. Now that I'm back in school, updates are probably going to be pretty small and unexciting, but it's all working toward shifting the site over into its new format!
August 29, 2014
This month's update doesn't have anything to do with all the new content from last month; I'll be working on that stuff in the coming months. Instead, new chapters to my fanfics Three Little Words and Dark Side of the Moon have FINALLY been posted, there's a new crossover from MeMeDoTa, a new piece of fan art from me (a reference sheet of my fursona, which I've also added to the Profile page), and I've updated the Past Layouts page.
July 18, 2014
There's quite an update in store for you today, and a pretty long one, too -- but it's worth it, I promise!
I haven't reorganized the site since 2009, so I figured I was overdue. Take a look around! There's a metric ton of new stuff floating around as I endeavor to replace all of the good fansites that are disappearing. Before I delve in, though, I'd like to point out that much of the new content is still a work in progress, and I'll continue to add to it in future updates. So if something looks incomplete, it probably is!
The first thing you probably noticed is that I've rewritten the intro! I'll work to incorporate the characters in the intro into other parts of the site in coming updates. The next big change is that I've completely regrouped all of the pages into new categories that will hopefully be much easier to navigate. In the spirit of having a site that anyone can enjoy, I now have sections for newer fans as well as veterans! And that brings me to the slew of new pages I'm introducing. In the New to the Fandom? section, I've put up a list of characters, a list of pairings, and a history of CATS and the changes that have been made to it over time. Then, in the Miscellany section, the page formerly known as INSANITY is now The Junkyard Junk Drawer; there's also a new page called CATS in the News, and a new blog for everyone's favorite thing: RANTS! I've gone ahead and posted a rant of my own to kick things off. The descriptions for all the pages have been rewritten, and I'll be rewriting some of the content in future updates, but it won't be anything major.
June 29, 2014
Remember my new BIG project that I keep hinting at? Well, it will finally be unveiled in next month's update, so stay tuned!
May 19, 2014
I may close the trivia question on the next update, so if you haven't answered yet, now's your chance! Also, keep watch for my new BIG project that will be unveiled very soon!
April 23, 2014
I'm 87% sure all of the pictures are back now, including the gifs (which were gone for so long because I was fixing their frame rate). Sorry if their absence caused you any inconvenience! Also, the reorganization of the Crossovers page from the last update inspired me to put up a few new ones of my own. Hopefully they're not TOO obscure.
Yeah, I know, not much going on in this update. But I've got plans for something AWESOME this summer, so stay tuned!
March 30, 2014
Some minor organization I've been doing caused most of the pictures on the site (including, for a very short time, the background and header image) to disappear -- sorry! Most of the pictures are back now, and I'll continue to work on the ones that aren't.A new Jellicle Dream (thanks, AngelicaNight!) and crossover (thanks, Xottie.2!) have led to both of those pages getting a facelift. Nice to be getting contributions again!
February 15, 2014
A very very happy FIFTH BIRTHDAY to the site! Hard to believe we've lasted this long and come this far, isn't it? It seems like just yesterday the site was sleeping in its crib . . . *wipes tear*
Anywho, there's a fair bit of new stuff floating around. I've taken down the old Fun Fun Fun! page because I decided it was a bit distracting from the obvious professionalism the rest of the site demonstrates. I've begun to merge it with the INSANITY page, though, so don't despair! Over the next few updates, I'll continue to repost some of the things from the old page, but only the ones that are most worth keeping. On that note, I'm thinking of retiring or at least redoing the forum, since no one has posted anything on it in over a year. Where has everyone gone?
The Mistoffelees shrine has received some work as well. It seems that a few of the multilanguage videos were taken down; fortunately, I've managed to replace most of them and even found some new languages to make up for the ones that couldn't be salvaged. Also, I was given the Dutch lyrics to Mister Mistoffelees, so I've put those up -- many thanks to amp for showing them to me!
And finally, the profile page has received a facelift, as it was one of the last remaining pages of the site that still looked like it was written by a thirteen-year-old (which, in all fairness, it was).
I've been meaning to steer the site back toward shorter updates, but I think my babbling is excusable for this one day. Here's to another successful Jellicle year, and hopefully many more to come!
January 25, 2014
Added a new piece of fan art, updated the description for my OC Bolero, and added a metric ton of new videos from international productions. Also, a reminder that the trivia question still exists -- I've only received one answer to it so far! Come on, guys, the answer is even on a page of this site!
Finally, happy birthday to Aeva May (January 15) and Ken Page (January 20).
January 1, 2014 (@ 2:04 am)
Happy New Year all around! 2013 was weird and wonderful; here's to an even weirder and wonderfuler 2014. My resolution is to create time for a good, worthwhile update each month, just like I promised. I'm a kitty of my word.
Note: This doesn't count as the January update -- it's just for fun! Check back later in the month to see my new resolution in action.
December 25, 2013
On the first day of Christmas, Fantasia gave to you . . . an update after four months of absence. (Everlasting, I cringe to admit it.) No quantity of apologetic words can express how badly I feel about seemingly abandoning you guys -- so I just hope you believe me and find it in your Jellicle hearts to forgive me.
So, the shortest possible explanation is that, as some of you may know, I started college/university/whatever you happen to call it in your country of origin, and it's been insane and crazy and hardly left any time for, well, anything. I never intended to stop updating the site -- it's just that I grossly underestimated how much work college would be and how little free time I would have.
Is this the long-dreaded end of the Corner? Of course not! I still intend to update the site and keep it alive as ever. That said, though, updates probably won't be as frequent as they've been in the past. How does once a month sound to you guys? Now that I have a semester of experience under my (tail)belt, I think I can manage that much. Besides, you guys are worth it.
And, of course, it wouldn't be Christmas (or whichever holiday you celebrate in the winter months) if I didn't have some real update material for you all. For the first time in forever and a half, there's a brand new fanfic from a brand new author -- thanks, Hailey! I also added a bunch of new fan art that was accumulating on my computer, and I rewrote big chunks of the fanfiction writing guide. It's now better and more helpful than ever, so if you're interested in writing fanfiction (or even just fiction in general), go give it a read! Speaking of fanfiction, I've reorganized both the fanfiction library and the OC page so that contributors are listed in alphabetical order (done for a number of reasons: 1) because I'm obsessed with alphabetizing things, 2) to eliminate unnecessary confusion when browsing for your favorite author, and 3) to avoid giving myself an existential crisis whenever a new visitor contributes something and I have to decide where to list them among the others).
August 15, 2013
You haven't seen me around in a while, have you? I apologize, but like I said, this has been one crazy summer. But, of course, I could never forget the Corner's half-birthday! This site is now four and a half and still alive, which, for a CATS fansite, is pretty impressive nowadays. There's not much new stuff today, but there's more coming. There's always more coming.
So, as you may have noticed, we have a new layout that fits in much more nicely with the site's color scheme. Since yesterday (August 14) was Jacob Brent's birthday, I've added a BUNCH of new content to the Mistoffelees shrine, and am working on more! And, finally, there's a brand-new website on the links page. It's called Starrgaze and is off to an awesome start! The owner was nice enough to contact me some time ago AND has even linked back to me, so this was the least I could do. Go check it out!That's all in the way of new material, but I'd just like to remind everyone of the new unanswered trivia question and the unentered contest. They're getting lonely! Also, I missed two birthdays in July: Wayne Sleep on the 17th, and John Partridge on the 24th.
June 19, 2013
Well, school's out, so now it looks like it's time to settle in for a very busy summer. But, anywho, updates! This update doesn't really have much in the way of new stuff -- it's mainly a bunch of changes I've been making. But hey, change is good, right? Let's get right to it!
I've added a few small bits and pieces to the fanfiction writing guide, and the "fandom dictionary" is now its own section on that page. I've merged the site awards that used to be on the Contests page with the awards I've won, so now all the awards are conveniently together on the Awards page. Also, I've revised the criteria for my site awards, so if you're thinking of applying for one, you have a better idea of what I'm looking for. And I'm also offering a brand-new award called the Shrine Award! Speaking of shrines, I've made a few changes to the Mistoffelees shrine so that it's not quite so creepy-fangirl-y. I'm also beginning to think about making shrines for some of my other favorite characters; thoughts, anyone? I've taken down a few of the videos that were a bit TOO weird for this site, and I've also taken down the Passing Thoughts page and moved my passing thoughts to the INSANITY page. (You're still welcome to contribute to that list, by the way!) And, finally, as promised, I've put up a new trivia question. Whew!
Happy belated birthday to Jason Gardiner as of June 11. That's all I've got for this update, but as always, there's more stuff on the way! See you all next time, Jellicles!
May 31, 2013
So . . . yeah. It's been a while, hasn't it? Things have been getting busy for me, but I wasn't going to let another whole month go by without a single update. Fortunately, there's a lot of stuff in this update for you to explore. As promised, the next chapters of both Dark Side of the Moon AND Three Little Words have been added, and there's a new page! It's actually an old page that was taken down, but now it's back: the INSANITY page! Right now it's made up mostly of stuff that used to be on other pages, but there will soon be more. Oh, and did I mention CATS gifs? It's something I've never seen before in the CATS fandom, and so I've taken it upon myself to fix that!
Back to update material. For the first time in a while, we have a new crossover (from Silhouette), and for the first time in an even longer while, there's a new member! Welcome to Pounci! There's also one new piece of fan art from me. And now, some reminders: the contest needs some entries, and the current trivia question will be taken down upon the next update. That's all for now; I''ll try not to let too much time get away before the next update!
Now, I do have an actual update! It's not much because I have been HORRENDOUSLY busy for the past month, but it's the best I could do. I've put up some new fan art and a new batch of adoptables: Skimbleshanks, Grizabella, and Coricopat and Tantomile (who are included as the same adoptable because you can't have one without the other). There have also been a couple of new additions to the Fun Fun Fun page. That's it for this time, but I'm working away at several awesome things for the next update, including new chapters of both Three Little Words and Dark Side of the Moon, and even a new page! So keep your eyes open for those. Also, a quick reminder: the latest trivia question is still looking for some answers and the latest contest needs more entrants!
Finally, in my month of absence I've missed out on a lot of birthdays! The late Sir John Mills's birthday was on February 22; both Rosemarie Ford and Elaine Paige shared a birthday on March 5; and Veerle Casteleyn's birthday was March 6. Coming up, Drew Varley's birthday will be April 9, and Jo Gibb's will be on April 18. Happy birthday all around!
April 1, 2013
Alas, the time has come. I know that I
Probably should have found a better way to say this --
Really, you all deserve more than what I've given you. But I can't do it anymore.
I'm closing the site.
Lately, it's just been too much of a hassle to keep it up.
Of waiting for updates that aren't even worth it. But why, you ask? Well,
Other things have come up. I can't help it. The Corner has fallen by the wayside.
Love you all. Thanks for four years. This is Fantasia
Signing off for the last time.
(If you thought of checking this page, good for you. Now read the first letter of each line.)
February 17, 2013
Happy happy happy (slightly belated) FOURTH BIRTHDAY to the site! Hard to believe another year's already gone by since the site's creation, isn't it? Unlike site birthday updates in the past, today's update is tragically small, but I have some awesome new stuff in progress right now, I promise! Keep checking back; I promised you new stuff at the beginning of the year, and new stuff is what you'll get.
Anywho, onto the actual update material. Tugger and Macavity adoptables have arrived and I've posted a new graphic. Also, since no one's answers to the trivia question seemed to be agreeing with each other, I've posted a link to a website where the answer I'm looking for is located; if you've already entered, this means I'm giving you a second shot. You're welcome. On the subject of entering, QuaxoRascal has agreed to enter the fanfiction contest, giving us a total of -- wait for it -- two entrants. And, finally, let's all welcome our newest site member, Archimedes! *Gives a cupcake with a candle in the shape of a 4*
My apologies for the brevity of this update. But just so you don't lose faith in me, here's what to keep an eye out for in the future: new chapters of both Dark Side of the Moon AND Three Little Words are currently in progress, and there's a new page getting ready to greet the world. Thanks for your patience, and I'll see you next time!
January 20, 2013
I don't have much to update this time around, but I figure a small update is better than no update. I've posted a couple of new pieces of fan art, and also, I noticed that the Past Layouts page hadn't been updated since I released this newest layout. This crisis has been averted.
January 1, 2013 (@ 12:37 am)
Another year has come and gone! 2012 was certainly an eventful year in a lot of ways. The world doesn't seem to have ended, so now please join me in welcoming in 2013! *Throws confetti*
As per usual with these first-hours-of-the-new-year updates, I don't actually have anything new to put up. Over the course of this coming year, I hope to give the ol' Corner a LOT of awesome new content -- I haven't exactly figured out what that's going to be yet, but there will be some. You have my word on that. In the meantime, keep enjoying the stuff I posted on the Christmas update, and hopefully you'll see more from me soon.Wishing a very happy New Year to all! *Joins paws with a very tired-looking Destiny and sings Auld Lang Syne*
December 26, 2012
*Comes in wearing a Santa hat that seems a size too big for her, dragging Destiny, who is wearing a green elf hat, along behind her* Happy, if not belated, holidays, everyone! This year's holiday update isn't that big of a deal, but we think you'll like it -- there's some stuff that hasn't been seen around here in a while. New chapters to both Three Little Words AND Dark Side of the Moon have been posted; there's a new video up; there's some new fan art from yours truly; and for the first time in a while, there's also a new fan character, also by yours truly! Go check him out!
And on a final note, today is the birthday of Karl Morgan! Happy birthday, Pouncey! Thanks for stopping by, Jellicles, and until next time, merry Christmas to all . . .. . . And to all a good night!
December 12, 2012
It's another tiny update! There are two new lyric stamps on the graphics page, and that's really all I have to say. The next chapters of both Dark Side of the Moon and Three Little Words are under way. Also, I'd like to thank Kalliste for being the first contest entrant! And on a final note, I've received two answers to the trivia, neither of which has been correct. Keep trying!In other news, happy 12/12/12!
November 20, 2012
Again, not much to update today, but I figured I owed you guys one. Chapter 9 of Dark Side of the Moon has arrived, there's a new adoptable (Plato), and I've revamped the Graphics page just a tiny bit and added some new ones. Also, I've made the executive decision that the Jellicle Blog will have to go bye-bye. I may bring it back in the future if I need to, but I really wasn't using it for anything and I doubt anyone was paying attention to it.
November 1, 2012
I bet you were surprised not to see a Halloween update from me this year. Well, trust me, I would have liked to, but I kind of spent all of Halloween -- and an entire day before it -- without power, which, understandably, makes it just a tad difficult to update a website. But now I'm back from my Amish adventure, just in time for Michael Gruber's 48th birthday! *Throws confetti*
October 11, 2012
Happy 10/11/12! Today's update is tiny, but I think I owe it to you. First of all, the newest chapter of my fanfic Dark Side of the Moon has been posted. Also, on the last update I mentioned a "certain little something" I was working on -- well, now it's ready to be unveiled to the public! Do you remember my very first fanfic? If you do, you've been around here for a long time. If not, no matter -- I'm rewriting it! Its new title is Three Little Words, and I've finally posted the link on the fanfiction page. The prologue and first chapter are up.In other news, I haven't received any answers to the newest trivia question yet! Where has everyone gone?
September 22, 2012
First I was going to update on September 15 (what would have been Timothy Scott's 57th birthday), but things came up and I had to put it off. Then I decided to wait until a certain little something I've been working on was finished, but if you've been around here for a while, you know me and my projects -- so it's taking longer than I thought. Then I realized that it's been almost a month since my last update, and even if I don't have much TO update, I'm giving you one now anyway -- because you're my visitors and you deserve better than what I've given you. So I hope you enjoy this. There are two new crossovers from PlatoFan21, and, as promised, there's also a new trivia question. That's it. I know it isn't much, and so that's why you have my word that the next update will have plenty to look forward to -- including the next contest. So get your creative minds ready!
August 23, 2012
It's been a while since I've treated you to a nice big, juicy update. Since I always like to do something nice for the site's half-birthday (August 15), I can't think of a better time to fix that -- even if it is a bit belated.
What's that, you say? Something looks different? Surprise number one! I've tweaked the head picture a bit and made it prettier -- and I've also fashioned some new home buttons that go with the layout better.
If you've tried to access any fanfiction on this site over the course of the past week, you may have noticed something weird -- namely, that it wouldn't let you see the page. Surprise number two -- check again! The entire fanfiction library has gotten a complete facelift. The stories are now listed with some vital information like rating and length, there's easier access to the songfics, and the story submission form is more streamlined and easier to use. A new rating system has been implemented as well; this system is explained in the Fanfiction Writing Guide. Also, several of the stories in the library didn't have the proper format and looked out-of-place and awkward compared to the others. This has been completely resolved. So sit down, why don't you, and enjoy a fanfic or two.
On the subject of fanfiction, a couple quick notes from me -- my first-ever fanfic, Can a Broken Heart Still Race?, is being rewritten! Its new title is a bit more sightly: Three Little Words. Expect it to be up soon. Its sequel, I Won't Say I'm in Love Again, has also been renamed to All Over Again -- and don't forget, both that and the old favorite The Fire Within will also be rewritten later on! Meanwhile, progress on the next chapter of Dark Side of the Moon continues. I hope to have it finished before too much longer.
Wooo, more stuff! As promised on the previous update, the winners of our first contest have been announced! Check in at the Contests page. Keep in mind that this time around, I only received three entries, so everyone won something -- things won't be as fortunate next time. Now, some bad news: the CATS Stats page has been retired (though it may not be gone forever!), and I'm considering taking down the blog as well, because honestly, I've stopped using it. Its fate will be decided in a future update. But on a lighter note, there's a very interesting new link to a very interesting new site on the Links page! You'll just have to find out for yourself what it is. And, as always, please don't forget to enter the trivia! There will be a new question on the next update, so if you haven't submitted an answer to the current one, now is your chance!
And now, after three and a half years, I think I've just posted the longest update yet.
August 14, 2012
Wishing a very, VERY happy 39th birthday to Jacob Brent!!!!!
Suffice to say, there isn't anything particularly Misto-related in today's update -- so here's a gif instead.
Anyway! First off, as I promised on the last update, the fan art contest is now CLOSED. I'll be announcing the winners on the next update. But, in the meantime, here's something to keep you excited: I've given out my first couple of website awards! Let's hear it for . . . EMIRA AND RUMPLETEASER!!! You two can find your personalized awards here. Put them up on those beautiful websites of yours, and display them with pride! And one final note: Electra and Etcetera adoptables have arrived. That's all for now!
July 24, 2012
At long last, I have returned to the Internet! I missed you guys. *Group hug*
Today's update is kind of tiny; my apologies. There's a new crossover from Silhouette, and a new trivia question, as promised. And . . . that's all the new stuff I have for you today. Fortunately, there are three birthdays that need to be celebrated! First off, I realized that I completely forgot about Jason Gardiner's birthday all the way back on June 11 -- sorry about that. He is now 41. Wayne Sleep, London's original Mistoffelees, turned 64 while I was away on July 17. And finally, John Partridge celebrates his birthday today! He is also now 41. *Passes around slices of cake decorated with icing cat faces*
One final announcement for today: since I haven't been getting any more entries, I WILL BE CLOSING THE FAN ART CONTEST ON THE NEXT UPDATE. If you want to enter, now is your last chance!
June 29, 2012
Today's update is relatively small, but I've revisited a few pages that so desperately needed revisiting, so that should make up for it. I've put up three more reference sheets for my OCs in the fan art gallery, which finishes the collection. There have been a couple of new additions to the undervalued Mistoffelees shrine, and I've added a new section to the fanfiction writing guide! Also, Emira's website has moved to a new address, which I have posted on the links page.And now, my real reason for updating today. In a couple of days, I'll be going away for three weeks with almost zero internet access (more information here). So don't expect any new material during this time. However, I will be posting a new trivia question upon my return, so if you haven't entered yet, now is your chance!
June 13, 2012
No real reason for updating today -- I just figured I owed you guys one after the most recent slew of month-long update-gaps. This update is a bit ego-centric, so be warned. Rumpleteaser has sent in a contest entry (hooray!), giving us a grand total of three. I plan to close the first contest once we reach five. I've put up chapter 7 of Dark Side of the Moon, and an illustration to go along with it. And now, here comes the egotism. DSotM is being translated into German! A big huge DANKE SCHÖN to Macavity666 on FanFiction.Net, who is taking the time to translate the entire story. I don't know if anyone here speaks or reads German, but in case you do -- or if you just want to see it anyway -- you can see the translation here!And now, some excellent news. RUMPLETEASER'S FLAT LIVES!!! You may recall that our dear friend Rumpleteaser informed us not too long ago that she could no longer maintain her website. Well, now she's back!!! Stop by, why don't you, and show the new site some love. Clicky clicky!
June 3, 2012
How do you give Fantasia a heart attack? By not telling her that she hasn't updated in nearly a month -- AGAIN -- and leaving her to figure it out on her own the next time she logs into Freewebs. Though I guess it wasn't my fault this time, since, in addition to having been extremely busy with a lot of things of late, I had literally nothing to update for several weeks. But I finally managed to scrape together a few small things, just to make sure you know I haven't abandoned you. Said things include a new lyric stamp on the Graphics page, a reference sheet for Tazie and Dessie both on the Fan Art page and the Profile Page, a new trivia question, and three new adoptables: the notorious duo and Pouncival.
May 8, 2012
Today's update is fairly short, as I didn't get much material this time around. There's some new fan art from Emira and some from myself, and a new video. Also, as some of you already know, I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a week in London last month; there's a little photo documentation of my adventure on the Fan Art page.
April 15, 2012
Emira brought it to my attention that I hadn't updated in quite a while, and that I needed to fix this. Thanks, Emira! On the subject of our new friend, she's also sent in an OC and FIVE new fanfics. Wowwie! I've also put up the new chapter of Dark Side of the Moon -- and quite frankly, I've been disappointed at the amount of attention said story has gotten. Give it a read, please? QuaxoRascal has sent in a CONTEST ENTRY, hooray! I now have two. C'MON, JELLICLES, THIS CONTEST ISN'T GONNA ENTER ITSELF! And let's not forget that the trivia is still there, too. Here's a hint: I still haven't gotten the right answer . . . I've also received a new surprise award, which I wasn't expecting at all, so thanks very much!And -- I can't believe I managed to forget this -- happy birthday to Drew Varley (who turned 40 on April 9th) and to Jo Gibb (who will turn 36 on the 18th)!!!
March 20, 2012
One new crossover today from PlatoFan21, who I regret to inform you has told me that this will be her last one. After this, she will be leaving the CATS fandom -- *sniff* -- forever. Fare thee well, old friend. On a lighter note, however, Emira has been busy lately! Not only is she now OUR 50th MEMBER, but she's also sent in a new fanfic and -- surprise surprise -- a contest entry, which can be found in the "Contest Entries" album on the Fan Art page. The contest was supposed to end today, and the final count of entries I've received yields a grand total of . . . wait for it . . . one entry. So, the deadline has been extended; it will be redetermined once other people send in more entries. Don't be shy, Jellicles! Where have all of my fantastic contributors gone?
Anyway, to finish out the update, we have a few renovations going on. The Library is a little disorderly right now; bear with me, and it'll be organized and prettier than ever before you know it. I've also reorganized the homepage a bit, including changing a few of the character dialogue colors around here. Thanks for your patience!
March 7, 2012
Today we have a brand-new fanfic from our brand-new friend, Emira! The title is "You Did This" and it's really quite good, so I would suggest that you go read it! Also, as promised, I've taken down the old trivia question and put up a new one. I've also put in one small, just-for-fun addition to the Fanfiction Writing Guide. On the Contests and Such page, I've finally put up samples of the beautiful, shiny site awards you can win! And speaking of that page, is anyone intending to enter the contest? Anyone at all? You only have two weeks left . . .Finally, wishing a happy 64th birthday to Elaine Paige and 50th birthday to Rosemarie Ford on March 5th, and a happy 34th birthday to Veerle Casteleyn yesterday, March 6th.
February 29, 2012
Happy Leap Day, Jellicles! Today we have FIVE new crossovers from the tireless PlatoFan21 -- thank you, as always! And now, faithful visitors, please join me in extending a great big warm welcome to the CATS fandom's newest recruit, Emira! Emira has started her own brand-spanking-new fansite, Emira's Jellicle Junkyard. A link to said site can now be found on the links page -- stop by, why don't you, and pay her a visit?
And now, a couple of reminders. First of all, I'll be posting a new trivia question on the next update, so if you haven't already sent in an answer to the current question, now's your chance! Also, the Corner's first-ever contest ends on March 20. This means you've got twenty more days to send in your work -- it wouldn't be much of a contest if we didn't receive any entries, now would it?
And, finally, we're ending this update on a more sobering note. Not long ago, this message was sent to my by our dear friend Rumpleteaser:
Hello everyone!!! I miss you all so much and hope everything is going well in your lives!!! It is very sad for me to say that Rumpleteaser's Flat will have to be closing. For one, I believe I've put everything on this site that needs to be done *give or take some pages not following the same layout design* and also Piczo no longer recognizes me as a user on this site. I've tried logging in with no success. Please know that though the site won't be updated any longer it doesn't mean I don't come on and check if anyone leaves comments, I check daily. I don't know how many people visit this site anymore, I know I haven't spoken to you all in a long time. I miss you all dearly and know that this site helped me learn more about theatre and I met so many wonderful, beautiful people who shared my passion. You are all so special to me. Thank you for the four/five *not sure how long it's been* years of joy on the internet.We'll all be sad to see you go, Teaser. It's been a joy to be co-webkitties with you.
February 15, 2012
HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY TO DA CORNER!!!!!! *Throws purple confetti and streamers everywhere*
For this update, there's a LOT going on. Most of it is just housekeeping, but I think you'll enjoy what I've done. First of all, I'd noticed that the Home buttons on several pages had disappeared; this has been fixed. A lot of pages have been updated: namely, the Links page, the Mistoffelees shrine, and the Thanks page. The Fun Fun Fun! page has received some cool new content as well. The fanfiction writing guide has been re-completed, and, at long last, re-posted. Also, a few updates have been made to the RPG in the forum. If your favorite canon character was taken before, you may want to stop by and check again. And what I think is the most exciting page update: Adoptables. These little guys have been revamped AGAIN, so that they now better fit the style of proper adoptables. I'll strive to be more active in updating that page from now on, but in the meantime, why not stop by and adopt a Jellicle or two?
A few pages, regrettably, have been taken down along with this update as well. These were the Fun Facts, Compatibility, Insanity, and Ticket Shenanigan. We will be sad to see them go, but bear in mind that not all of them will be gone forever . . . On a much more exciting note, though, for the first time in far too long, a BRAND NEW page is being unveiled today! You've seen them on other websites, but now they've finally come to the Corner. Ready for it? CONTESTS!!!!! The first contest opens today. Please, enter! It will be fun!
Thanks for three wonderful years online, Jellicles. I couldn't possibly have made it this far without you, but now is not the time for looking back. Instead, we look toward the future, and all of the opportunity that it will bring to Fantasia's Corner of the Junkyard. Excelsior!
February 1, 2012
Just a quickie update for today. We have three new crossovers from the tireless PlatoFan21, and, as promised, the old trivia question has been taken down and a new one has been posted. Send in some answers, guys!
Also, I smell a special birthday coming up . . .
January 15, 2012
Alrighty! For the first OFFICIAL update of the year, we have two new crossovers, one from Phoenix Borealis and the other from ObsessiveJemima. The new chapter of my fanfic, Dark Side of the Moon, has finally been posted, and I've put up a new piece of fan art as well. The trivia question will be left up until the next update, so if you haven't entered yet, now's your chance!
As a side note, happy 50th birthday to Aeva May! Also, since I probably won't get around to updating again within the next five days, happy EARLY birthday to Ken Page, who will be turning 58 on January 20.
And a side side note: the Jellicle Blog still lives! *Points to below*
January 1, 2012 (@ 1:41 am)
Here we go again! Hard to believe another year's already gone by, isn't it, Jellicles?
Well, once again, I regret to inform you that I still have no update material today. I am, however, working determinedly on the new chapter of Dark Side of the Moon, which should be posted by the time the next update rolls around. And the trivia question is also still ready and waiting for anyone who wants to enter! On a quick side note, since I forgot to mention this in my previous update, a very happy birthday to Karl Morgan, who turned 38 on the 26th.
Well, here's to the crazy and wonderful year that's passed, and to the optimistic new one that lies ahead. Happy 2012! (My resolution? Become more diligent about updating stuff around here.)
December 23, 2011
I’m rather sorry to say that I have no update for today,
And that momentarily I shall have to go away.
Six days of vacation lie ahead – whee, what fun!
But I will return at last when the holiday is done.
And then I shall update, all just for you,
My faithful visitors, the old and the new.
I haven’t much time left before I catch my flight–
So until then, Merry Christmas to all . . .
And to all a good night.
December 5, 2011
Two new crossovers from Jemiteazer, three new crossovers (one from ObsessiveJemima and two from PlatoFan21), and one new piece of fan art from moi. Also, as promised, the old trivia question was taken down and the new one has been posted.
The holiday season is just around the corner now . . .
November 11, 2011
Happy 11/11/11! Just because I can, I'm posting this update at precisely 11:11 pm.
Anyway! Today there are two new crossovers from Aloni, and one new video and a new fan art piece, both from me. Also, I'll be taking down the trivia question next time and posting a new one -- so if you haven't entered yet, now's your last chance!
November 1, 2011
Wishing a very very happy 47th birthday to Michael Gruber! I don't actually have anything to update today, so I'll keep this short and sweet -- but while we're on this subject, don't forget to check out the newest trivia question if you haven't already!
And, a very happy (if not belated) Halloween to you all as well!
October 23, 2011
Oh dear . . . guys, how could you let me go so long without an update? My deepest apologies! Although, admittedly, part of the reason this happened is that nobody sent in anything for the longest time . . . if you want updates, I need stuff TO update!
Anyway, today we have a crossover from PlatoFan21, a songfic from Phoenix Borealis, the fourth chapter of Dark Side of the Moon, a new trivia question, and a new member! Welcome to TheRailwayCat!
As a side note, this webkitty's favorite holiday is just around the corner . . .
September 10, 2011
September 6, 2011ObsessiveJemima has sent in two new OCs -- thanks for your contribution! The next chapter of Dark Side of the Moon has been posted, and so has a new trivia question. Congratulations to our many winners for the last question! There's also a new fan video, and a new lyric stamp on the Graphics page for you to look at.
In other news, back to school tomorrow . . .
August 23, 2011We have a new OC from ObsessiveJemima and a new addition to the obsession list from Caramella. Boy, it's been a long time since we've seen any action on that page, hasn't it? Also, I've posted the next TWO chapters of my fanfic Dark Side of the Moon, as well as an illustration to go with it on the Fan Art page.
August 15, 2011HAPPY HAPPY (belated) 38th BIRTHDAY TO JACOB BRENT!!!
If you've been around this site for a while, you'll know that I usually decorate this place for Jacob's birthday. But as the site continues to grow, decorating it becomes more and more painstaking and takes an increasingly long time to do . . . and to completely redo every single page just for one short day isn't really worth it in the long run. So I hope this orange-ness here is good enough.
Now, on to the update material! At Silhouette's request, her story Sillabub's Special Someone has been taken down. I've posted one new piece of fan art and some new graphics -- I wanted to put up a little Misto animation I did as a sort of 'birthday present', but Freewebs is being a butt and not letting me post it. So you can view it here instead. Also, there's a new trivia question, AAND a nice new submission form where you can submit answers! I thought the shoutbox was a bit unprofessional, so I took it down and replaced it with a nice, private submission form. Enjoy. Finally, let's all welcome Kalliste as our newest member (finally)! And as one final announcement, I'd like to remind everyone that today is the Corner's half birthday. Two and a half years online and still going strong! *Throws purple confetti*
July 24, 2011An entire month? Seriously? How has it been that long? Guys, I keep telling you, please kick me if this happens again!
Anyway, to start off, happy 40th birthday to John Partridge! Kalliste sent in a new songfic, and there's a good deal of new stuff from yours truly . . . but before we get to that, I have a tiny announcement to make. Two of my fanfics, The Fire Within and I Won't Say I'm In Love Again, are being put on hiatus and will eventually be rewritten. Looking back at the early chapters of those stories, they really aren't that great . . . so, I'm putting them aside for a while, and in their place, I've started a brand-new fanfic! Its title is Dark Side of the Moon, and I have posted the first part. Also from me is some new fan art, and two new videos. Also, the issue where my "Popular" video wouldn't work has been fixed. That's all for now!
June 23, 2011
Hoooooooly catnip . . . I think this is the longest span of time we've EVER gone without an update. You all deserve an apology, and you've got one. The end of the school year is here, and that always means lots of craziness with studying for final exams and all that not-so-good stuff. However, school's out tomorrow for me, and I'll have absolutely no excuse to let this happen again . . . at least, not until next year. Anywho, the update: we have two new fanfics from Kalliste and one songfic from her as well; Phoenix Borealis sent in a songfic too. There are two new OCs from ObsessiveJemima, and since no one seemed to be getting the trivia question right, I've provided you with a hint. It's not much, I know, but keep the submissions rolling in! Help keep this lazy webkitty busy!
Also, happy (very) belated birthday to Jason Gardiner! Everyone's favorite Alonzo celebrated his 40th birthday on June 11.
May 12, 2011Happy (belated) CATiversary, Jellicles!
In other words, as of yesterday, CATS is 30 years old! Isn't that exciting?
Yep! To celebrate, I've posted a new bit of fan art from myself. In addition, there's a new crossover from ObsessiveJemima, a bunch of new OCs from Silhouette, and the third part of "The Hidden Past of Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer" by Stripes. Kalliste sent in some fanfics too, but they were a bit much for this update, so they'll be up next time -- I promise! Last but certainly not least, our newest member, Mistoflame, sent in a new blooper. Thanks to everyone!
April 18, 2011
Stripes has sent in the first chapter of a brand-new fanfic, Quest of the Jellicles. Also, since I realize you haven't seen much activity from me lately, I've posted some new fan art, and the description from my second CATS experience (which was all the way back on January 29, but I kept forgetting to post my summary until now). There's also a new piece of art from Caramella, three new crossovers from ObsessiveJemima, and a new trivia question. Tragically, no one seemed able to find the correct answer, so I awarded partial credit to those who deserved it. I'm just too nice to you, aren't I? Anyway, I've also decided that to make things easier, I will put this symbol next to the link to the Jellicle Blog whenever there's a new entry. I'll keep it up until the next site update.
On a final note, we have two birthdays to celebrate today! Jo Gibb is now 35, and as of April 9, Drew Varley is 40. Am I the only one who finds it just too funny that their birthdays are so close together?
March 26, 2011Let's welcome our newest member, Bouciport! Bouciport has also sent in a new item for the obsession list and a new blooper. I've also put up a new obsession list thing of my own. Isn't it nice to see the older pages getting updated again? I've temporarily removed the link to the Polls page for some . . . *shifty eyes* renovations. You'll just have to wait and see what happens from here. Also, since no one seemed to be answering the trivia question correctly, I've posted a hint. Don't fail me now, guys!
By the way, there's one new short fanfic from me. If your name starts with "Cara" and ends with "mella", I would **HIGHLY** suggest you go take a look.
March 6, 2011I have been informed that our beloved PlatoFan21 will be leaving us. She has contributed so much to the various parts of the site, and these contributions will be missed dearly. Everything she's sent in will remain on the site, however, and as a final farewell, she's sent in one last crossover. Also in today's update, QuaxoRascal has sent in some new fan art. As for me -- and I haven't said this in too long of a time -- I've posted a brand-new, shiny graphic. Hopefully I'll be back in the graphic-making business before long!
As a side note, I'd like to wish a very happy 33rd birthday to Veerle Casteleyn, and, as of yesterday, a happy birthday to Rosemarie Ford, who is now 49, AND to Elaine Paige, who is 63. *Throws confetti*
February 15, 2013
In other news, there's some regular update material today as well: two new crossovers from Aloni and some new fan art from the webkitty herself. In addition, I've been getting into the fan video business lately, and I'm proud to say that I've completed and posted my first one! Enjoy the new layout, Jellicles! *Pulls out a chocolate cake with two candles on it* Who wants a piece?
January 31, 2011Two new songfics and one regular fanfic from Silhouette, and a new crossover from MistosGirl18. And, a new trivia question has been posted. Silhouette also sent in some fan art, but please note that it has NOT yet been posted. My Freewebs website storage space has run out and at the moment I am unable to upload any more pictures . . . but I'll have this problem fixed and the fan art posted in no time, I promise.
January 18, 2011I apologize for the background -- Freewebs, for some reason, is acting up on me and won't let me change it back. Just bear with me until I get it sorted out. At least the old banner is back, anyway. Anywho, there's not much in this update; two new crossovers from PlatoFan21 and two new songfics from Caramella. And it seems I've missed Aeva May's 49th birthday by three days, so I wish her a happy belated birthday! Also, Ken Page will be turning 57 on the 20th. Happy birthday to all!
January 1, 2011 (@ 3:14 am)
Fast away the old year passes! (Fa la la la la la la la la!) Hope everyone had a great 2010, but now it's time to welcome in 2011! *Throws confetti* So, for the first update of the year, we have four new songfics (three from Kalliste and one from Caramella). We also have a honkerload of new OCs (mostly from Kalliste, but also a few from Ambinoggos and one from Christen), and two new crossovers (also from Kalliste). And, Caramella has sent in her newest shipment of dolls, as well as a *belated* holiday graphic. Finally, Christen (aka MistosGirl18) is our newest member! Welcome!
Wishing everyone a great start to the new year!
December 24, 2010
Merry Christmas, Jellicles! The holidays are finally here, and the Corner is celebrating. To those who have sent in stuff since the last update, don't worry -- it'll be up soon. This update is special.
Fantasia's gifts to you:
✭ A brand new page, which you will find under "Informative Stuff"
✭ The reopening of the Adoptables page
✭ Several new fan art pieces I should have posted long ago
✭ The new chapter of The Fire Within, since you've waited far too long
It's not much, but hopefully it's enough. Oh, and wishing a very happy 37th birthday to Karl Moran on the 26th! So, until next time, we wish everyone a Meowy Christmas and a Happy Mew Year!
*Tiptoes in, giggling* Psst . . . notice anything different?
*Bounds out behind Fantasia* Yep, we're getting festive for the holidays!
*Pouts* You ruined the surprise!
*Sticks out lower lip* Well, anyway . . . as you may have noticed, it's that time of year again! *Cue fake snow* Technically, this isn't exactly an update, but hey, it's something, right? Enjoy the temporary layout! *Whips Santa hat out of nowhere; the ball has a jingle bell on it* *Bats at the ball, giggling again*
December 27, 2010My biggest, deepest, sincerestest apologies for the latest dearth of updates, fellow Jellicles! Rest assured, since the holidays are coming up, you may be pleasantly surprised in a few days. (Speaking of which, happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate it!) So, today, there's a new crossover from PlatoFan21, and some of her previous crossovers have been tweaked at her request. Caramella sent in three OCs, and there are two new fanfics (both from Etcelebub), a songfic (from Lininaiasha), and the second chapter of Forbidden (by Kalliste). Also, Caramella has sent in a collection of cute little dolls she made on Paint. These can be found on the Fan Art page in the album entitled "Caramella's Dolls". And, as foretold, the newest trivia question has FINALLY been posted. And last but certainly not least, let's give a big warm welcome to our brand new member, ObsessiveJemima! Thanks for joining!
November 14, 2010This update is pretty small, but at least I managed to squeeze it in in under ten days! There are three new crossovers from QuaxoRascal and a new fanfic from Etcelebub. I was also notified that there was a typo in one of Aloni's crossovers; this has been fixed.
In other news: I only have two answers for the trivia question, guys! It's been up for WEEKS! I'm replacing the question on the next update, so this is your last chance if you know the answer!
November 1, 2010
Okay, since I've been flooded with so much stuff, this update will be posted in parts. Part one: Fan art! I've put up three new pieces from QuaxoRascal and thirteen -- yes, thirteen! -- from M.W. Roach, who now holds the official title of Most Prolific Artist on this Website. *Throws confetti*
And as a side note, HAPPY 46th BIRTHDAY TO MICHAEL GRUBER!!!!!
November 3, 2010
12 new crossovers. 2 from Aloni, 5 from Caramella, and 5 from Kalliste. Also, most of PlatoFan21's crossovers have been taken down at her request.
November 4, 2010
It's überfanfictionupdate day! There are TWELVE brand new fanfics waiting to be read, nine being songfics. Three are from Lininaiasha, five from Caramella, one each from Aloni and Stripes, and two from Phoenix Borealis. Also, the final two chapters of A Notorious Trio of Cats (by Lini) have been posted, as well as the next two chapters of Fire in My Eyes (by Mella). Thanks for the mega-contribution, all of you! The fanfiction page has also been revamped slightly as an attempt to clean it up: all songfics now have their own separate section all to themselves. Enjoy!
November 5, 201011 new OCs! One from Lininaiasha, four from PlatoFan21, two from Aloni, and four from QuaxoRascal (whose other characters have had their descriptions modified as well). There are also two new crossovers from Aloni, and chapter 1 of Forbidden and chapters 4-7 of Jellicle Dawn (both by Kalliste) have been posted. Finally, Caramella sent in a new award, and some new Passing Thoughts have, um, passed.
And guess what? That's the last part of this update! I thank all of you for your submissions (and for some of you, constantly nagging me to get this update out there), and you can rest assured that the next update will be much sooner!

*You see a dark, empty field under a silent night sky dotted with stars. The full moon casts an eerie silver glow over everything in sight, and a chilly night breeze ruffles the grass and tugs at your fur. Everything seems abandoned . . . but suddenly, you hear something rustling, and two dark silhouettes emerge like living shadows out of the grass. They draw closer and closer, finally revealing themselves as two cats: one gray with purple eyes, and the other a blue-gray.*
Happy Halloween, my kitties! *Cackles like she's going insane*
*Raises eyebrow* And she hasn't even had that much sugar yet . . .
Yes, yet . . . *eyeshift* Anyway, this update is pretty much just to tell you all I'm still alive. I have a honkerload of stuff to post, but today's update is just fun. I've put up a piece of seasonal fan art, drawn by MOI, and as an attempt at compensation for being so horrible lately, I've decided to put up one of the new pages a little bit early. It's not quite finished yet, but it's called Fun Fun Fun!, so I think you'll enjoy it.
And now, let's welcome the multitude of new members! *Passes out candy to Phoenix Borealis, Aloni, Rumartisia, ch3rryb3rry, and Nicole* Thanks for joining, all of you!
That's it for tonight . . . but tomorrow I'll fit in an update with more business, I promise. Thanks for your patience . . . *dramatic close-up with dramatic lighting* . . . and we'll see you tomorrow.
*Sigh* Note to self . . . hide the extra candy.
October 10, 2010
HAPPY 10/10/10!!!!!!!!!! As usual, Caramella and Unashamed_Felinity have both been very busy lately! From Caramella, there are two new songfics, the second chapter of "Fire in My Eyes", and SIX new OCs. And from Unashamed_Felinity, there are chapters 6-10 of "A Notorious Trio of Cats", four OCs, and a new crossover. Thanks to both of you! There's also an additional crossover from PlatoFan21 and four new pieces of fan art from M.W. Roach. Also, a big warm welcome to Etcelebub, our brand new member!
September 27, 2010
I've been added to seven new fanlistings by Eerrily; thankies! Caramella sent in four new crossovers, a bunch of nice new graphics, AND another award! Thanks so much! From Unashamed_Felinity, there are two new OCs, and QuaxoRascal sent in a new dream. And finally, I've also posted the newest trivia question! Good luck to all!
Once again, I've received multiple fanfics since the last update. Since I'm pretty busy, I didn't have time to post them today, but they'll be up soon! I promise! Thanks for your patience, everyone!
September 28 edit
Wooooooo!!! How's THAT for prompt? So, today we have SIX, that's right, SIX brand new fanfics. (Ooh, it rhymes!) One from Caramella, two from Unashamed_Felinity and three from Kalliste! Thanks to all for your submissions; to everyone else, enjoy the stories!
September 18, 2010
Part four of Kalliste's übersendin -- a new songfic -- has arrived. For this update, Caramella sent in a whole big honkerload of stuff! Ready for this? *Deep breath* She sent in three crossovers, a dream, two songfics, and *drumroll* two lovely awards! Thanks a bunch for your contribution, Caramella! There's also another crossover from PlatoFan21, a bunch of new fan art from M.W. Roach, and another dream from Unashamed_Felinity. Finally, a big warm welcome to our three new members: r1y2r3e4s, Caramella (thanks for finally joining!), and Unashamed_Felinity!
September 9, 2010
Ya know that special fanfic update I promised last time? Well, it's here! There are two nice, LONG new fanfics: The Secrets Will Hide by Caramella, and It's Miss Kohana to You Mister! by Kohana. There's also a shorter one: Rain by Jemmara. And to top it all off, the LOOOOONG overdue seventh chapter of my fanfic I Won't Say I'm In Love Again has been added.
Back to school tomorrow, though ironically, I get the feeling that this will open up more update time . . .
September 1, 2010
Why must summer go by so fast? I thought I'd have lots of update time this summer . . . but I was obviously wrong, and I apologize. Anyway, today, the third part of Kalliste's übersendin has been posted: it's another OC. Caramella has also sent in the bio for her own OC. Also, it is with great joy that I announce the arrival of the final chapter of Light of the Jellicle Moon. HUGE thanks to M.W. Roach for sharing her talent through this story for literally one year now; though the story will no longer be updated, it will remain here in the Corner to be read and reread FOREVER! *Echo* ever! . . . ever! . . . ever! . . . In this final chapter, four new OCs are introduced. These OCs have their pictures displayed on the fan art page, and their bios on the Fan Characters page. However, these bios contain spoilers, so if you haven't read the new chapter yet, proceed with caution! On the subject of fan art, there's a new piece from *yours truly*. Also, I'd like to welcome our two newest members, Munkustrap and Kohana!
Since the last update, I have received a FLOOD of fanfics in my inbox. These fanfics were all too much to put up today, which is why they're not up. If you sent in a fanfic, my apologies for the delay; I will be devoting an update entirely to these fanfics at a later date. Hang in there!
August 16, 2010
I apologize for not updating yesterday. Stuffs came up and things happened. I hope the *HUGE* update in store for you Jellicles today won't disappoint! First of all, the second part of Kalliste's übersendin, comprising of six crossovers, has arrived. There is also another crossover from Neleness. Roselna has sent in two new fanfics and FOUR videos; thank you very much, Rosie! There's a new piece of fan art from QuaxoRascal, and PlatoLuvr-08's Harry Potter crossover has been taken down at her request. Also, from M.W. Roach, there is a new Jellicle Horse and two other miscellaneous fan art pieces. There's also some stuff from the webkitty herself: a new trivia question has been posted, I've FINALLY been accepted into the Munkustrap fanlisting, I've put up the bio for a brand-new OC of mine, AND *drumroll* new fan art! Yayz! You'll also notice that my old fan art has been retired, due to the experience and skill gained since they were drawn. These new pieces are MUCH more attractive, trust me! And I also have a brand-new scanner, so no more worries about quality! Hooray! I'd also like to welcome the three members who have joined since the last update: mistoCourfeyracMistoMistoMisto, Duchess, and cats musical victoria rock! Welcome, welcome!
And now, for the *special* part of the update. As of today (well . . . actually, yesterday) the Corner is officially 18 months old. In honor of the site's half-birthday, I've revamped the Bloopers and Fun Facts pages, thus cleaning them up a bit, and as you may have noticed, I've also reorganized the homepage to make it easier to navigate. And, I've tweaked the description of the character Fantasia a bit, changing her appearance (and other minor factors) just a tiny bit. Not to worry, though, all fan art of her according to the old description is still fine. Happy half-birthday to the Corner; enjoy this mega-update, everyone!
August 14, 2010
HAPPY 37th BIRTHDAY TO JACOB BRENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Those of you who have been around the site for a while will find that this layout is somewhat familiar. It'll be back to normal tomorrow, I pwomise. And the Overuse of Orange (Jake's favorite color) has struck again!
No, this isn't an actual update. I know I've been really lousy, but I've just been SOOO busy lately it's been hard to find time to squeeze anything in. Yell at me if you wish, but a very large *real* update will come tomorrow. Enjoy the temporary layout!
July 24, 2010
The updates are back! Hooray! Kalliste has been submitting several portions of what she calls her "übersendin"; I have posted the first part of this send-in, which comprises 8 OCs. There is a new crossover from Bombaltoria and a new fan art piece from QuaxoRascal, and the penultimate and climax chapter of Light of the Jellicle Moon has arrived! Be warned, however, it's looooong. The Adoptables page has been taken down for renovation; you'll see it again a few updates down the road. I'll leave up the current trivia question until the next update, so if you haven't entered yet, now's your chance!
Also, wishing a very happy 39th birthday to John Partridge! AND, it seems I have missed Wayne Sleep's birthday by a week. London's original Mistoffelees turned 62 last Saturday on the 17th.
July 6, 2010
PlatoLuvr-08 sent in two new crossovers and the final addition to her Pokémon crossover; I have also been informed that there was a mistake in one of her OCs' description. This has been fixed. Kalliste sent in the third chapter of her fanfic Jellicle Dawn, as well as the prologue to a new, longer fanfic, Forbidden. She also sent in one new blooper. There are two new fan art pieces from M.W. Roach and a new OC from Eerrily, and let's give a big warm welcome to our newest member, Mistaxojem! The answer to the old trivia question has been posted and a new one is now up. Finally, it is with pleasure that I announce the arrival of the LONG-overdue seventh chapter of The Fire Within! *Throws confetti*
June 11, 2010
Happy 39th birthday to Jason Gardiner! Well, ready for the überupdate, as I have been calling it? Since the last update, I have received WAY too much stuff to post all at once, so this update will be broken up into sections. Since there are multiple submitters who make up the bulk of said stuff, starting tomorrow, I will dedicate each section of the update to one visitor and their submissions. The process will take a few days, but it will all get done, I promise!
6/12: Roselna sent in FIVE new songfics (yes, you read that right!), three OCs, two fan art pieces, and one crossover.
6/13: M.W. Roach sent in eight OCs and six new fan art pieces -- that's a lot of work! Additionally, chapter 15 of Light of the Jellicle Moon has arrived.
6/14: Kalliste sent in five OCs, the first two chapters of a new fanfic, Jellicle Dawn, and a crossover.
6/15: Rumpleteaser sent in ELEVEN OCs. That's the most out of everyone so far!
6/17: PlatoLuvr-08 sent in two crossovers and some new additions to her "CATS/Pokemon" crossover. Her OCs' descriptions have been tweaked a bit at her request. (I apologize for skipping yesterday . . .)
6/18: QuaxoRascal has been very busy lately! She sent in two new songfics, the first part to a brand-new fanfic entitled How I Spent My Ninth Life, the next TWO chapters of Mentored by Fireflies, seven new CATS pixel dolls, three crossovers, and a new OC. Have fun looking at it all! And as a side note, today marks the beginning of summer vacation for me. Hopefully this will allow for more time to spend on here!
6/19: MacavityManiac and Miyela each sent in an OC. Also, the third chapter of Two Tails (by Jazzy) has arrived.
6/20: Eerrily sent in a new songfic. Also, I hope everyone had a happy Daddy's Day!
6/23: Fantasia apologizes for bypassing the last two days. She is currently working on getting the long-overdue next chapter of The Fire Within ready for publication, and is also trying to get some new fan art produced. She also would like to welcome the three new members who have joined during the process of the update: echoewhisper, Tantomile, and IcOuLdCaReLeSs. Thus concludes the überupdate; I would like to thank everyone for their patience, encouragement, and submissions. It's stuff like this that is truly the life-blood of the website. The next update should come very soon! Peace out, Jellicles!
May 22, 2010
A new songfic from Eerrily and a HONKERLOAD of OCs that were submitted to me! Thanks to QuaxoRascal, Ambinoggos, PlatoLuvr-08, and Kalliste for sending those in! I've also developed a new submission form just for fanfiction. The link to this can be found on the Fanfiction page. And, QuaxoRascal is our newest member! Welcome, welcome!!!
May 16, 2010
Yes, it's true, another update has arrived! Chapter 6 of my fanfic I Won't Say I'm in Love Again has arrived, as well as chapters 5 and 6 of Mentored by Fireflies. Also, there is a new crossover from Ana (which I received a while ago but seemed to have gotten lost in the (e)mail . . . sorry!), and I've posted a new trivia question. There is also a new link to Eerrily's new site, Eerrily and the Jellicles.
And now, the best part! This is something I haven't said in a while . . . but we have TWO, that's right, TWO brand-new pages!!!!!! The first page is entitled Fan Characters, a special corner of the Corner dedicated to our beloved OCs (original characters). And the second is a brand-new, shiny blog, which is a mechanism I will be using to alert you guys of new stuff without running a full-fledged update. Enjoy!
May 8, 2010
*Eyes bug out* How has it been so long already??!?!! I'm not being a very diligent updater, am I? Well, at least this is a nice BIG update for all you faithful visitors. First off, a new Passing Thought has been submitted by PlatoLuvr-08. We also have two new crossovers, one from PlatoLuvr-08 and one from Roselna. Also, QuaxoRascal has been very busy of late; the next two chapters of Mentored by Fireflies have arrived, she has created an ID card for Destiny (displayed both on the fan art page and on the profile page), AND she has sent in two beautifully-done digital fan art pieces. On the subject of fan art, MW Roach has provided us with five new creations! I have also posted a link to Victoriacat's website, Under the Light of the Jellicle Moon. Finally, we have one new member, xXxAshXEmberxXx!!!
*Phew* That was a lot! Once again, I'm terribly sorry for keeping you all waiting! If this ever happens again, someone please please PLEASE kick me!!! (Just not TOO hard, please . . .)
April 18, 2010
Happy 34th birthday to Jo Gibb! Chapter 14 of Light of the Jellicle Moon has arrived, as well as a new, short songfic from moi. I posted the winners to the latest trivia question, and put up a new one. And for what it's worth, I added two new bloopers. And last but certainly not least, welcome to our newest member, Electra!
April 11, 2010
Originally, I was going to wait a couple days for this update, but then I realized that my last update was way back in March. So, I couldn't help but update today. Wonderful news: M.W. Roach lives!!!!!! She has been through a couple hardships, but now has returned and provided me with (1) the next TWO chapters of Light of the Jellicle Moon and (2) three new fan art pieces! Welcome back, Roach!
*Pokes head in* Just so you know, guys, if she's ever being lazy, you can go ahead and kick her in the butt and get her down to work. She'll only bite if she thinks you're made of candy for some reason.
March 28, 2010
Posted a new songfic from Eerrily and a comic strip from Jemima (under Fan Art). Also, I put up *fanfare* the tenth trivia question! Finally, we have FIVE, that's right, FIVE new members!!!! A big huge welcome to Jemima, Roselna, Bombalurina, Nyx, and Ambinoggos, who is also the first male member! *Does the Welcome Dance*
March 20, 2010
Sorry for the recent lack of updateage! (Or is that updatery? Updatification?) Today we have one new crossover from PlatoLuvr-08, which, from what I understand, will be the last for a while. I've also posted the new chapter of The Fire Within, and put up a brand-new story from Stripes! It's called The Hidden Past of Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer. Intriguing title, huh? Also, a big warm welcome to our new member, Eerrily!
March 5, 2010
Happy birthday to Rosemarie Ford (who is turning 48) and Elaine Paige (who is turning 62), and as of tomorrow, happy birthday to Veerle Casteleyn (who will be turning 32)! Lots of birthdays today! I've posted a new trivia question and put up four new crossovers from PlatoLuvr-08, one of which may please all you Pokémon fans out there. I noticed that several of the fanlisting links were faulty. Turns out six of them seem to be down, and three have moved. I fixed the links to the moved ones and de-linked the down ones. Also, I took down the link to the Skimbleshanks fanlisting because . . . well . . . its most recent update was in November 2007. But if anything happens, I'll repost it.
February 26, 2010
You know that fanfiction update I was talking about earlier? Well, it's here! The new chapter of I Won't Say I'm in Love Again is posted! There are a couple lovely birthday presents posted on the Awards page (for lack of a better location) and, by special request, I have added a thank-you note for PlatoLuvr-08. I'm sorry to have neglected you!
I would like to remind you all, once again, that I still need answers for the trivia and the RPG is still looking for new members. I'll stop bothering you all about it once we get some activity here! C'mon, guys!
February 15, 2010
Well, today is February 15, and you know what that means . . . yesterday was Valentine's Day! *Hands out heart-shaped cookies* I'm kidding, I'm kidding. (You can keep the cookies, though.) Today, Fantasia's Corner of the Junkyard celebrates its first birthday! It's hard to believe we've been online for one whole year already; where did all those months go? Anyway, I am thrilled to announce the arrival of two new pages: first off, I have put up a shrine (though currently in progress) to the one and only Mister Mistoffelees! Yayz! Also, I've put up a Thanks page, honoring all you people who make this site possible. There is a new (short) dream and one new Are You Obsessed?, some new fan art, and three new polls. I had hoped to have a fanfiction update ready for today, but what I have in mind isn't quite done yet. Hope all you Jellicles can wait. That's it for now, but here's to the Corner surviving its first 365 days! *Clinks glass of chocolate milkshake*
February 11, 2010
Added a whole bunch of new videos and a new blooper. I know it's not much, but I felt bad about not updating in *gasp* twelve whole days. Oh, and enter the trivia, pleasey?
January 30, 2010
I am thrilled to announce that chapter 5 of my fanfiction The Fire Within has FIIIIIIIIIINALLY been completed and posted!!!!! Enjoy. I also have seven new crossovers from PlatoLuvr-08, and as promised, I took down the trivia question and posted a new one.
January 20, 2010
I've changed up the format of the Videos page a bit, and added several new ones. For whatever reason, they're listed in the opposite order that they were meant to go in, so . . . sorry. Oh, and there's a new crossover (PlatoLuvr-08, of course). I'll leave up the trivia question until the next update; if your name isn't Lokiskitten or Etceterally, please try to submit an answer! And I don't want to sound nagging, but PLEASE join the RPG! Please? *Puppy dog face*
Happy 56th birthday to Ken Page and welcome to our newest member, Stripes!
January 15, 2010
Happy 48th birthday to Aeva May! I focused on the site's oldest pages for this update: a honkerload of new bloopers and two new fun facts, and I've retired the FAQ page. Let's face it, everyone knew the answers to those questions already. I felt smart when I learned them, but that was nearly a year ago to the date. (Site's birthday is ONE MONTH from today, can you believe it?!) Oh, and I re-renamed the Cat Page to INSANITY!!!!!!!!!! and made it more, um, insane.
*Sigh* Only one answer to the trivia question right now and only five RPG members . . . c'mon, guys, the forum is getting lonely . . .
January 9, 2010
Posted chapter 4 of my fanfic and a new "Are You Obsessed?", and added a link to the most recent fanlisting I've applied for, which I've forgotten about for the past two updates. Sorry. Anyway, more Jellicle Horses from MW Roach, and PlatoLuvr-08 is our newest member! I'd like to welcome her to the site, even though she's been actively participating in its affairs (a phrase which here means "sending in crossovers") for months.
January 5, 2010
Jazzy (aka Mistoffelees980, also our newest member) has generously allowed me to put up her two fanfics. They're both very good and I suggest you read them! In return, I posted a link to Jazzy's site, Mistoffelees'haven.
It has just occurred to me that the site's birthday (February 15) is coming up pretty quickly . . .
January 1, 2010 (@ 1:29 am)
Happy New Year, Jellicles! Welcome to 2010! Hm, the new decade doesn't seem too different yet, does it?
So, anyway, as you can see, the old, non-festive layout has returned. (Embarrassingly enough, it took me a minute to remember what the text looked like. Hehe.) I finally took down Trivia Question 6 that I kept forgetting about, and put up Q7. Also, chapter 3 of my fanfic is now up and there is a new crossover from PlatoLuvr-08. Now, let's roll out the welcome wagon for Rumpleteaser, Aethinia, Sequenca, and Lokiskitten, our new members! Welcome to all!
Speaking of members, check out this banner Rumpleteaser made for my RPG:
Eeeek! I just LOVE!!!!!!! it!!! Thanks again, Teaser! (Is that getting on your nerves yet? )
Don't understand why those characters are all on the banner? Then JOIN THE RPG!!!! Please? We need members . . .
That's all for now. I wish you all a very happy New Year and decade, Jellicles!
December 24, 2009
The holidays are here! It's hard to believe, isn't it, Jellicles? Well, I've got two new seasonal fan art pictures done by me. And I'd like to extend a holly jolly welcome to Victoriacat, our newest member. But wait! Don't leave yet! I have a special present for you all . . .
Fantasia's Corner of the Junkyard has a forum!!!!!!! I've been working on getting it ready to unveil to the public for days -- and now it's finally ready! You can use it to talk to fellow fans about anything you want, CATS or non-CATS. It even has a mini-RPG!!!! I hope you like it. *Hands over brand-new shiny forum with a big red bow on top*
So . . . I guess the best way to sum this all up is . . .
MERRY CHRISTMAS to all, and to all a good night!!!
(If you don't celebrate Christmas, then happy belated Hanukkah/happy Kwanzaa/happy whatever it is you celebrate.)
December 19, 2009
*Bounces by holding a jingly bell in her paw* JINGLE JINGLE JINGLE JINGLE JINGLE JINGLE JINGLE!!!! *Bounces away*
*Annoyed* Who left out the catnip?
December 9, 2009
December 3, 2009
And, a big warm welcome to our newest member, Bombarcheretta!
November 29, 2009A new crossover from PlatoLuvr-08, a new dream submitted by Hazelthorn, and chapter 1 of QuaxoRascal's brand-new fanfiction, "No One Else Can Know"! Yay, new stories!! I'm going to be redoing the homepage slightly sometime in the near future, just to let you know.
November 21, 2009
Two new crossovers from PlatoLuvr-08, and chapter 10 of Light of the Jellicle Moon. Also, I've added a whole new section to the Cat Page.
November 17, 2009Sorry for not updating in so long! I wanted to post a "special surprise" on this update, and it ended up taking longer than I expected to complete. So, as promised, I posted the answer to Trivia Question Five and put up Q6. Also, there are three new pieces of fan art from QuaxoRascal and four from M.W. Roach. I renamed the page "Random Stuff" to "Cat Stuff" because that's basically what it is. I also put up the award from Sofia's fanfiction competition (which I'd meant to put up last time, but I forgot) and added two new bloopers (should I reorganize that page? Funny though it may be, you have to admit it is sort of chaotic). Now, as for said surprise -- the good news: I posted chapter 1 of my brand-new fanfiction!!! YAY!!! The bad news: it's not excessively kitten-friendly, and won't get any better with time. Sorry, younger viewers, but it's PG-13. That's all for today! Enjoy!
November 9, 2009Four new crossovers from PlatoLuvr-08 and chapter 9 of "Light of the Jellicle Moon". I'm going to leave up the current trivia question until the next update, so if you haven't submitted an answer yet, now's your chance!
October 31, 2009
I don't have much to say and will probably add more tomorrow, but I've posted an (extremely short) Halloween story that took me all of three hours to write. Read, please.
And, by special request, here's a little jack-o-lantern emoticon I dreamed up in an e-mail chat with QuaxoRascal!
Isn't it cute?
I didn't go trick-or-treating this year, but instead I stayed home and handed out candy to little kids. (I still got to dress up, though.) The awesome part is, we didn't pass out everything. *Eyes honkerload of leftover candy* Be warned: I'll probably go on the ultimate sugar high tomorrow.
November 1 edit
HIHIHIHIHIHIHI!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm on a sugar high right now, as foretold!!!!!!!!! HEHEHEHE!!!!!!!!!!! I just added this bit on 'cause I didn't feel like taking the other part down yet!! So, um, I added four new pieces of fan art (from ME!! *gasp* Can you believe it??!?!?!) and have been accepted into three new fanlistings! YAY!!!!
And now, a special announcement: HAPPY 45th BIRTHDAY TO MICHAEL GRUBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, so there's nothing especially Munkustrap-related in today's updates, but I posted chapter 8 of "Light of the Jellicle Moon", which has Munkustrap in it. And I'm currently working on two Munkustrap fanfictions myself, one of them being the currently dormant "The Fire Within". So . . . HEHE!!!! SUGAR!!!!!
So, that's all for today's updates. LIVE LONG AND PROSPER FELLOW JELLICLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *Runs around the junkyard flashing the Star Trek sign*
October 26, 2009Told you I'd update soon! So, five new drawings from QuaxoRascal, and a link to a brand-new CATS site, Bombarcheretta's Jellicle Hideout.
October 22, 2009
</end emoticon abuse>
Has it REALLY been that long since I updated?! Oh wow. I'm such a lazy bum. Err, my deepest apologies. I took down Trivia Question 4 and posted the answer because it was starting to annoy me, and put up a new question. Also, I posted chapters 6 and 7 of "Light of the Jellicle Moon" (M.W. Roach's story). You'll be seeing more from me SOON, I promise!
October 9, 2009
Added chapter 4 of my fanfiction and chapter 5 of M.W. Roach's. Also, I've added a navigation system to the multiple-chapter fanfics to make the chapters easier to browse. And, even if you've already guessed (scratch that -- especially if you've already guessed), I'd like you to take a look at the Trivia page.
October 1, 2009Four new crossovers from PlatoLuvr-08 and two new drawings from QuaxoRascal. Also, I've been accepted into one new fanlisting.
September 26, 2009Added chapter 3 of my fanfic and chapters 3 and 4 of M. W. Roach's. Also, Etceterally (who is also our newest member!) sent in one new blooper.
September 21, 2009Three new pieces of art from QuaxoRascal, six new crossovers from PlatoLuvr-08, three new bloopers submitted by Etceterally, a new link to Endless Masquerading, and we have a new member! Welcome, TigerLily!
September 15, 2009
One new piece of fan art from QuaxoRascal. I suggest you check it out, especially if your name is Rumpleteaser. Also, there's a new crossover from Hazelthorn, and I've added Chapter Two to both my story and M. W. Roach's. Sorry if my updates don't come as often as you're used to for the next couple weeks; I just got back to school and things are kind of chaotic right now. Just bear with me, and it'll get better, I promise.Also, a special announcement. If Timothy Scott had not passed away at the age of 32 from AIDS, he would've been 54 today. (If you don't know who he is [gasp], he was the original Broadway Mistoffelees.) Timothy, I hope you're having a great celebration up there in the Heaviside Layer. Rest in peace.

To start, I'd like to welcome to our new member, Hazelthorn, who has also submitted five crossovers. There are two additional crossovers from PlatoLuvr-08. My crossover collection is becoming pretty big! Also, I've been accepted into four new fanlistings, all of which I only just applied for today -- that was quick! And, I've announced the winners for Trivia Question 3 and posted Question 4.
And now, I'd like to be serious for a moment. (Didn't know I could do that, did you?) All you American visitors out there, I'm sure you're aware of the tragedy that took place eight years ago today, when the World Trade Center in New York was destroyed by terrorists. Many people lost their lives in this event, and we will never forget them. God bless America.

Okay, a lot new stuff today, are you ready for this? We have: *deep breath* The prologue and first chapter of a new story by M. W. Roach, chapter 1 of my new fanfic, three new pieces of fan art from M. W. Roach, a new crossover from PlatoLuvr-08, a new dream by me, three new fanlistings that I've been accepted into, a new link to "Now and Forever", a new contest award from Rumpleteaser, a new "Are You Obsessed?", AND I've updated my profile with a couple new . . . thingies. Phew! *Pant, pant*I go back to school the day after tomorrow . . .
September 2, 2009
August 31, 2009*Sigh* Is it the end of August already? Back to school next week! Oh, well. This time we have 9, yes, that's right, 9 NEW CROSSOVERS!!!! Three are from PlatoLuvr-08 and six from QuaxoRascal! Thanks a bunch to both of you! Also, a big warm welcome to our two new members, Malurina and MW Roach! Finally, I'd just like to say this: It's happened at last!!!! I have two brand-new fanfiction ideas! I'm currently working on the first and the second will probably just be a piece of fluff, but . . . inspiration! Hahaha! Okay, I'm done.
August 25, 2009
Two new crossovers from PlatoLuvr-08 (thankies!) and one AMAZING new fanfiction from QuaxoRascal! (Read it NOW!)

HAPPY 36th BIRTHDAY TO JACOB BRENT!!!!!!!!!!!!So, um, I've played with the layout a bit just for this special day (don't worry, I'll change it back tomorrow). Today I'm making a point of using lots of orange -- Jake's favorite color! Like the background? And don't you just love the picture at the top? *Misto head shake -- SQUEE!!!*
August 7, 2009
Nothing much this time, but all the codes to the fanlistings I've joined have been moved to their own separate page. (In case you didn't know, they were previously located on the Random Stuff page.) Hopefully this will be a little more convenient. The page is titled "Fanlistings" and is located under the "Fan Stuff" section.
August 4, 2009
Yay, another update! First off, I've added a new poll that's ready to be voted in, and there's a new page entitled, "A Little Ticket Shenanigan". Maybe you'll find it helpful. Or maybe it's just more of my insanity. Either way, please take a look!Additionally, you may notice something a little different about the fanfiction page . . .

July 21, 2009
Four new pieces of fan art from QuaxoRascal, and I'm now a member of two more of Rumpleteaser's fanlistings! (Heh heh, now I'm officially a fan of Misto and Quaxo!)
July 19, 2009
For the first time, it's nothing new from me! I have two new pieces of fan art from QuaxoRascal, and two new stories from Rumpleteaser! Go check it all out!
On a smaller note, Fantasia's Corner celebrates its 300th hit! Hooray!!!
July 16, 2009
July 13, 2009
Well, I'm back!!! (Actually, I got back two days ago, but . . .) Not much new, I guess. Added another link and a new award (from a contest).
July 1, 2009
It's July already? Gosh, summer's going by fast. Anyway, ladies and gentlemen, toms and queens, kittens of allllllllllll ages, it's finally happened! I have a Fan Art page!! Until I draw more (or someone decides to let me use theirs), you can look at my own six pictures. They're all pencil drawings, and I know they look kind of weird, but that's my scanner's fault. It's old, and it seems to pick up all sorts of little dots and lines that weren't there, but never picks up what you want it to. I had to really play with the contrast on these things, so don't blame me. Also, Trivia Contest Number Two is now up and ready to be entered! So, um, I'll be leaving on vacation tomorrow. I have to wake up at, like, three in the morning to catch my plane, so I guess this is goodbye. (I am starting to get some headway on my third fanfiction, by the way! I'll work on it while I'm gone!) See you in ten days, Jellicles!!!
June 28, 2009
Some new graphics from JAJ. And, I've deleted the "My Faves" page and the "More Questions" page. No one was submitting answers to the questions, there's too much confusion to keep up with on my favorites list, and, most of all, they really weren't doing anything but taking up space on my Freewebs storage. (As you probably already know, there's a limit on how many pages you're allowed to have on a Freewebs site unless you pay for it, and I'm NOT about to do that.) So, now I have a little more room to work with. I already have an idea what I'm going to do with those pages, though . . .
June 24, 2009
Some awesome new Random Stuff today! Go check it out!
June 19, 2009
I've been really busy with graphics lately! There are three new ones, and I've changed the "Home" buttons! (After all, I have the Jellicle Moon on everything else, don't I?) Also, there's a new page: Jellicle Dreams, which is just what it sounds like! I hope you're all having a great summer! My last day of school was today, so I should have a lot of free time now. (Not like I don't anyway . . .)
June 14, 2009
I have another new page!!!!! It's my very own fanfiction writing guide!! The best part is that it won't torture you with all that boring grammar stuff! Please go check it out! Remember, I did a lot of writing even before I became a CATS fanatic, so I do have some good advice to give you! Speaking of fanfiction, I have two, that's right, two new plot ideas, but after what I put you through for my second fic, I wouldn't expect anything soon . . .
June 11, 2009
Some new Passing Thoughts. I'm noticing that that page is starting to become more of an ongoing lineages rant . . . Also, I've finally added some adoptables for our very favorite cat-burglars themselves: Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer!!! Enjoy!!! And, a very happy birthday goes to Jason Gardiner, who is turning 38 today!!!
June 8, 2009
Okay . . . this time there's a new "Are You Obsessed?", two new bloopers, two new Passing Thoughts, and two little interactive kitties on the "Random Stuff" page for you to play with! Believe me, they're actually pretty hard to leave alone . . .
May 31, 2009
Well, I haven't really added anything today, but you may have noticed something different. That's right, I've gotten rid of that totally cliche "Welcome to the Jellicle Junkyard!" and replaced it with "Fantasia's Corner of the Junkyard". The reason for that being that I've decided to change the site's name from "Jelliclez" (or "The Jellicle Junkyard" as some like to call it) to . . . uh, exactly what it says above . . . ? Also, I've made a banner for my site, so you have something more attractive than a URL to link to. That's all for now!
May 27, 2009
Just small stuff today. Added a new "Are You Obsessed?", a new graphic (promoting anti-hate, hooray!), a new Fun Fact, and several new bloopers. (I just realized it's been a really long time since I updated either of the last two pages . . .)
May 25, 2009
Sorry for the almost week-long absence, but I'm back now. Well, my second fanfiction is *FINALLY* posted! Enjoy! Just to warn you, though, it's literally twice the length of my first story, so be prepared. That said, there's quite a bit more dialog in it than in the other one . . . Oh well, enjoy it anyway! And, there's another poll up, please vote in it! One more thing: it is now officially easier to submit an answer to my trivia! I've put a shoutbox on the page where you can submit your answer, no e-meow necessary! But, unlike on Piczo, I can't make my shoutbox private so that only I can view it, so please, no cheating! (Keep in mind, however, that not all of the answers you see may be correct . . .)
May 19, 2009
Awesome news! I received another award from Nedame, of Nedame's Jellicle Hangout! It is now displayed proudly on my Awards page. Also, I have added a link and some adoptables from ^ site.
May 16, 2009
Lots of good stuff today! (Actually it's not really that much, but at least it's new stuff!) So, we have a new "Random Stuff" page for . . . random stuff . . . and, there's a page of crossovers I dreamed up, which for now is only three, but there are more coming! And, I've added a picture of my OCs, Fantasia and Destiny, on the Profile page, so you can see what they really look like. Also, there's a new link to Silohette's Corner of the Junkyard, which is a new (and rapidly growing) fansite. That's it, but enjoy it anyway!
May 13, 2009
Hey everyone! Not much to say this time, just added a couple new graphics. Things to look for in the future: I'm planning on putting up a Fan Art page, as soon as I get the chance to scan my drawings, and I'm considering (note the use of the word considering) putting up character bios and song lyrics. And, believe it or not, I am working on that story!
May 9, 2009
Oh, Everlasting Cat, what a week I had! Well, I've added two new "Are you Obsessed?" things from QuaxoRascal and another one of my own, and I finally have a Graphics page! Admittedly, they're not very good graphics, because (1) they are my first-ever attempt at making them, and (2) my computer doesn't have Photoshop, so I can't do all those fancy things like blending colors. Fortunately, I have a *fairly* high-tech painting program (which is also how I make my adoptables). Once you're done suffering through those pitiful [words I can't say because I have to keep this page kitten-friendly], I have some way better graphics from other sites for you to look at.
May 3, 2009
Okay, let's see . . . we have a new blooper, a new poll, a new, beautifully written poem (by Sophiakitty), a Jellicle Compatibility page (you'll have to find out what that is for yourself!), and a Macavity adoptable (but don't worry -- as long as you take Misto too he shouldn't be a problem.) Hm, am I forgetting anything? *Checks to make sure* Nope, that's it. Enjoy the new stuff!
Oh, and one final note: it's great that I'm starting to get visitors. Please don't forget that I have a trivia contest! I would really appreciate it if people sent in answers!
April 29, 2009
I *finally* added another story to the Fanfiction page, by QuaxoRascal! It's a very good story, you should read it! Also, I put up a Skimbleshanks adoptable.
April 26, 2009
Sorry for making you wait so long for an update, but I swear you would not believe the week I had . . . So, lots of new stuff today! First of all, I've made some Home buttons to take you back to the homepage. *Points to the button at the bottom* See? See? Also, I've added two must-haves for any fansite: an Obsessed list and some polls! Okay, maybe it's not so much after all, but it took a long time to do, so go check it out! *Clicks new Home button* Hehe . . .
April 19, 2009
Adoptables now available! So far I have Alonzo, Bombalurina, Bustopher Jones, Mistoffelees, Munkustrap, Pouncival, Great Rumpus Cat, Rum Tum Tugger, Tumblebrutus, and Victoria. More coming soon!
April 16, 2009
Okay, I've got some TERRIFIC news today! Sofia, from Sofia's Jellicle Home, has presented me with her New Site Award! *SQUEEE!!!* It is now proudly displayed on my brand-new Awards page! In return, I will be adding a link to her site on my Links page.
And sorry about the lack of activity recently. Please, don't mind me, I just got back from my spring break and am still trying to get readjusted to my normal schedule. I swear, I won't abandon you guys, and I am working on lots of new stuff! And, erm, about that second fic . . . uh, it's coming along . . .
April 10, 2009
Hi everyone! Things going fine here, getting more ideas all the time. Considering new format, but as I am quite new to Freewebs and creating websites, it may take a while for anything to happen. My next project: adoptables! Coming soon.
As of now you can access the videos under "Fun Stuff" on the homepage.
April 8, 2009
Some completely awesome new stuff has arrived on Jelliclez! First of all, I've added our first-ever TRIVIA CONTEST!!!!! All I need now is site visitors . . . And now, the piece de resistance, I have added a page of CATS videos I found on YouTube! (Yes, there is a story behind how and why I found them, no, you probably don't want to know what it is.) Um, so far, I have no category to place it under on the homepage, so for now you can access the videos here.
April 7, 2009
Wow, has it really been that long since I've updated? Sorry. So, um, Site Renovation complete! I no longer have separate pages that link to more pages that link to more pages that link . . . well, you get the idea. That's just plain annoying. Now you can access most stuff from the homepage. A lot easier, right? And MY FIRST FANFIC IS FINALLY UP!!!!!! I am sooooooo sorry it took so long, but first I was too busy to do anything with it for about three weeks, then I went back and reread it and decided that I didn't like it very much, so then I went and rewrote some parts of it, and added some stuff and took out some stuff . . . at least that should explain why it's so long. Sorry about that, too, but I can not write really short things. My friends tell me that I write really well, though, so . . . And the same for my second fic. It's coming along, I promise!
March 28, 2009
Site Renovation Stage Two complete! I've done some organizing, like I promised, and I just now realized how boring this site is. But it will get better . . . I guarantee it . . .
March 26, 2009
Site Renovation Stage One complete! My homepage is a little disorderly right now, but I'll do some straightening out and organizing soon. Until then, just bear with me!
March 24, 2009
Umm, yeah. I, uh, am making good progress on my second fan fic . . . I'll post the first one soon, I promise . . .
Uh, I'm planning on changing the format of Jelliclez so that it will be even easier to navigate. That and, erm, so it can be more like those other fan sites that I am so much in envy of . . . *nervous chuckle*
March 17, 2009
Ooookay, guess it's been a while since I updated. Sorry, just been kinda busy lately. Um . . . added some new bloopers I found . . . another fun fact . . . and another FAQ . . . uh, yeah . . .
I finished my story and will post it as soon as I get the chance. Meanwhile, I've also come up with an AWESOME idea for another story, which you should be seeing on here sometime soon . . .
March 9, 2009
Just got finished with my very long and detailed recollection of the show. LOVED IT, really want to see it again.
Several new ideas for site improvement in the making . . .
March 4, 2009
Oh yeah! I am on a roll! Uh, four days to go . . . time passing slowly . . . Anyways, I created a Fantasia's Corner page for stuff all about wonderful ME! Also, I've added another page under the Miscellaneous section! Yay! Tazie's been busy today!
March 1, 2009
Seven days left, but I don't think I'll make it . I've added a Miscellaneous page for all the stuff that doesn't fit anywhere else. Well, actually there's only one page on there for now, but still . . . I do have more ideas, but they depend on visitors to this site. PLEASE, visit me, I'm getting lonely!!
Am currently working on a CATS fanfiction story, it should be posted on this site before long.
February 25, 2009
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! Wonderful Jellicle news! I have recently acquired a set of tickets to a nearby showing of CATS which takes place on March 8, which is just a little over a week from now. I'm really excited, because this will be the first live show of Cats I've ever seen, EVER. And since it's been off Broadway for almost nine years, to me this is the next best thing. I CAN'T WAIT! Please expect a very long and detailed recollection of the show soon . . . (Yeah, I know this isn't an update, but for now I don't have anywhere else to post it.)
February 23, 2009
Cool, my first update! Erm . . . as you can probably tell, Jelliclez is a very young website, and you can't do much on it yet . . . but be patient, and I promise I'll try to make it as awesome as I can manage!!!! And please don't be afraid to send in fan stuff -- art, short stories, ANYTHING! The more you contribute, the more interesting the site gets. Please don't hesitate to e-mail me, I don't bite . . . usually . . .
