But E, the picture is NOT how things are going to be organized in the final site. So trying to navigate the site based on a mock-up is futile. It wasn't designed to show organization or navigation, only the look and to give us a launching point.

Brandon wants a graphical web site like: http://www.jkrowling.com/en/

I yet to see why he can't have one.

Gah.  I absolutely hate that JKRowling site.  I have no intention of ever visiting it again.  It's way too clever for its own good and finding links was painful.

I agree. Rowling's site is pretty horrible. It's okay for people who want to play a Harry Potter website game--because that's basically what it is--but not for casual seekers of information. The point of Rowling's website is that you have to dig around for information, and Harry Potter fans seem to love digging around for information. Does Brandon want people to have to dig around for information on his books? I thought the whole idea was to make his site's information easier to find, not harder.

All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!
