Love Notes

This fanlisting is the only one listed at The Fanlistings Network for the subject of the romance genre of fanfiction. It is owned by Trialia and was adopted from Tracy in April 2006. Both layouts were made using Notepad, Mozilla and Adobe Photoshop 7; the fanlisting is run using the script Enthusiast, credited on the front page, and the CodeGrrl site-skinning tutorial. Many thanks to my host Lora for staying up for hours to help me get it right! The image used in the blue layout is a promotional photograph from Wicked: The Musical and features Idina Menzel and Norbert Leo Butz in their roles as Elphaba and Fiyero (brushes from Miss M); the black and brown layout is from the episode Valentine's Day In Jail, part of a series of short films entitled Bliss, and features Torri Higginson and Adam Beach.
