Okashina Okashi 
[in a nutshell]
[Piccie of the Update]
[This picture is also available in the Original art section.]
What is Okashina Okashi?

Japanese, of course! ^_~ The name means "Strange Candy" and the web mistresses figured that was suitable for the stuffs bound to live here. Think of the name what you will, but delve in beneath the skin a bit and I'm sure you'll find it fits to a T.

Besides the meaning, what really IS Okashina Okashi?
Okashina Okashi is simply a home to fics, stories, images and other such things pertaining to favorite fandoms or original works. It's a rather small archive, but growing with every punch of a key by the authors here. ^_^

Okay, so we know about the site now, but what's with the fruity layout?
That would be simply our style! We happen to *like* this sort of thing, and hey, it helps the site live true to its name!

You guys babble a lot, so, anything else you want to babble about?
To coin a Sailor Moon phrase, "Duh!" ^_^ Looking around I bet you notice there isn't a whole lot here. Well, give the web mistresses a break every now and then, ne? This site is still upon shaky legs, but hopefully, over the course of summer and late night/early morning computer usage, it will grow to something respectable.

So there you go; Okashina Okashi in a proverbial nutshell!

Inspiration struck! I made a new page layout and, lo and behold, NEW ART! Yes, minna, it can happen. I actually did something I'm not ashamed to mention. Check out the Original Art section! Doooo iiiit! No new fics as of now tho there WILL be some to come! Also, NEW! check out the 'word(s) of the update'! Tis a place where I babble on about the meanings and roots of different words (Fun, ne?) Sometimes inspiration strikes in the wee hours and I just have to go with it. *shrugs* Also, I changed the "counter contest" from 100th visitor to 50th visitor. Odds are better now ^_- Well, till next update! Ja~

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY! ^_^ And there's my patriotism. ^_- I tried to get motivated to do a tribute piccie, really, but it didn't work, minna. -_- No inspiration! Grr. I blame my dying muses *nods* it was THEIR fault. Anyway, hope all you US of A'ers have a happy and safe 4th. The Powers That Be bless America! (Just to stay on every religion's safe side ^_-) Ja~

Still working with Krystal's art. Dying to see it? Click the link, copy the URL and paste it into the navigation bar. That works but for some reason direct links don't. Grr. Sorry about that, minna, but I'm still working with it. Ja~
Akuma and co.

*COUNTER CONTEST!* Seeing as I like to encourage traffic to the site, every 50th visitor will get a fic, story, or pic
made specially for them! Note: The FICS have to be about a fandom I know, obviously. However, if you want a STORY it can be about
anything you want. (Providing it's not an epic -_-) Pics are done personally by me and again, they have to be from a fandom I know or
outlined about an original thing. (Please note: I'm not the best artist in the world and I only JUST got Adobe Photoshop, but I'll try to make it
how you want ^_^) IF YOU ARE THE 50TH VISITOR: Please just send me an email and tell me so. ^_^ Simple!
