| Mokepon |
Pokemon webcomic by H0lyhandgrenade. The story of a fourteen-year-old chain smoker whose mother kicks him out of the house so that he might go on adventures and learn about friendship. A riot on every page and lots of fun for those who have played the games in the franchise.
| Final Fantasy VII Web Novels |
English translations for Final Fantasy VII literature. The site also hosts other rare information about the compilation.
| GameFAQs |
When it doubt, cheat. The website may not be as pretty as strategy guides, but it's easier to navigate (Command + F!) and hosts guides from multiple users, which helps in clearing up mistakes or confusing language.
| Loveless |
A shrine to Tifa Lockhart from Square Enix's 1997 RPG Final Fantasy VII. It is so in-depth and provides not only information about Tifa but also obscure background information on the game that must have required loads of investigation.
| poupéegirl |
A fashion website for girls. Upload pictures of your wardrobe to earn ribbons, which can be used to buy clothing and accessories for your virtual doll. Out of all the dress-up sites I've dabbled on, this one is the most addicting.

The writings of Luc Court, one of my favorite writers. His style is awe-inspiring with its language and detail and structure and guh. Lots of fan fiction and a few original pieces.
| Shoebox Project in PDF |
A Harry Potter fan fiction of epic proportions by Jaida Jones and rave. Heart-warming and hilarious and, at times, tragic, this 26-part Marauder story is the reason I began reading Harry Potter. Also the first thing I ever read from Jaida, and she only got better from there.
| CDJapan |
A huge online store that sells Japanese music, DVDs, apparel, and more. It's one of the best to buy J-rock albums and Japanese punk labels that are seldom distributed elsewhere. They also have frequent sales and coupons.
| CWTV.com |
The official web site for the television station, the CW. It has plenty of extras for the network's shows, including downloads, games, interviews, photo galleries, and polls.
