site

Symbiosis opened on February 14, 2008. (I swear, it's a coincidence.) The fanlisting is approved at The Anime Fanlistings Network. Many, many thanks to the staffers -- this has been my #1 wishlist fanlisting for 3 years. ♥

According to the dictionary definition, symbiosis means:
sym·bi·o·sis [sim-bee-oh-sis, -bahy-]
–noun, plural
1. Biology.
a. the living together of two dissimilar organisms, as in mutualism, commensalism, amensalism, or parasitism.
b. (formerly) mutualism (def. 1).
2. Psychiatry. a relationship between two people in which each person is dependent upon and receives reinforcement, whether beneficial or detrimental, from the other.

Coming up with a name that encompassed the many layers of Soubi and Ritsuka's relationship was difficult. I chose to focus on their bond, and how much they increasingly rely on each other despite their conflict. Given my track record, I'll probably change the name eventually!

Since early 2005, my goal has been to open three Loveless-related websites: a series shrine, a Ritsuka/Soubi tribute, and a Soubi fansite. I have struck two off that list with this site and Adolescence, and I'll probably cross the last one off eventually because a Soubi shrine is still something I'd love to do.

So, so many layouts were completed and thrown out before I finally settled on this one! The image is from volume 7, scanned and vectored by me. The mini-icons are by famfamfam.
