site information

history, thistory

This is the page where you can find out nearly all the nitty-gritty details about the construction and execution of the long-lived delusion that is The Wolf and the Flower. Hooray for insanity! Especially the Mimato-flavoured kind.


The Wolf and the Flower first premiered on the web in the May of 2001. Yes, that is almost fifteen years ago. Yes, it was as bad as it sounds -- a fairly run-of-the-mill Mimato shipping site with all the standard bells and whistles attached, hosted first on Virtue.Nu (before the 0Catch buyout), then Geocities for some years, and then finally on my own webspace. Over the years, it's evolved into what you'll soon see here: with any luck, a shipping site that stands out from the rest (and has buried its embarrassing past but good. ^^; In my defense, we were all just kids when Digimon started! Kids are embarrassing! I think that works as an excuse...) A lot of my opinions on all things Digimon have changed and re-shaped themselves over the years, but my love for Mimato has only grown with the years, so I thought it was high time to bring the shrine back to its former glory. And with Digimon tri. now burning up our screens (and Yamato and Mimi having close to zero interaction, as tradition demands!), could there possibly be a better time? I think not! And the rest, as we say, is history. ♥


This layout was made with official art of Yamato and Mimi in their tri. incarnations, brushes from mohaafterdark @ deviantart, and a really terrifying amount of milky mocha. (What? How are you even supposed to do anything without pumping caffeine into your bloodstream?! What do you mean, there are people who don't? I don't believe you.) It was put together with a combination of Adobe PhotoShop CS6, Araneae, and occasionally Brackets for some elements. It is HTML5 and CSS valid. It's been road-tested on Chrome and Firefox on Windows 7 Professional, and Firefox and Chromium on Xubuntu, and appears to display clearly on all of them. Like all my layouts, I strive to produce something that is attractive but still globally accessible, so if you have any problems with readability in this layout, please do email me.
