Giving this whole posting thing another try. But I'm being smart this time! I'm writing out the posts ahead of time so there's no excuse ^^ If this becomes a success, I'll go back and repost the two stories I previously started. Here's to hoping! And I hope you enjoy this and will go bug Shoujo Crusade with me to get more chapters scanlated.

Who can resist a bishie?

Hm, wanna bet he's an arrogant stuffed shirt who immediately demands an apology from her? That would be the usual shoujo route. Let's see if the mangaka can add some originality.

Who am I kidding? Originality, shmirignality. The boys are nice to look at. So who cares if the story is original or not?

I'm writing out the posts ahead of time so there's no excuse ^^
That's how I do it. I write a full chapter's posts to text files at one time after I upload the pictures. Then when it comes to post day, I open the text file and copy and paste the text into LJ. For me, it's much easier and quicker than trying to create a new LJ post from scratch every day.

I hope you're not disappointed! I've been on a shoujo kick lately so just about everything amuses me at this point.

*shifty eyes*

And as I said above, who can resist a bishie?

Heh, and I've always wanted to write the post out ahead of time, but I just recently figured out how to turn OFF the automatic pretty quote issue as well as all the other annoying automatic formatting Word tries to do. And while I did attempt to use e-mail as an alternative media, it never worked.

Yay for beating Microsoft at their own game!

I rely on Notepad for my LJ posts. No automatic formatting to screw things up when I copy over to LJ. The only thing to remember is that when you copy from Notepad to LJ, you need to have Word Wrap turned off otherwise, you'll get line breaks in your paragraphs that you didn't mean to have. (Plus a Notepad file is considerably smaller than a Word doc with the same information in it. My LJ Notepad posts are only 1 KB each of storage space on my hard drive.)

Disappointed? Nah, I was joking about the shoujo genre in general. It takes a lot to disappoint me actually. It's kind of hard to do.

I just copy-n-paste my previous post onto my new post and make the necessary changes like titles, etc. XD

I used to do that but then I'd get lazy. Mostly because I'd have to go looking for my previous posts. But no more! Because at least the first chapter is already typed up and ready for postings.

I've never been able to get used to Notepad. I think it's the font they use. It's more difficult for me to read although I'm sure if I just forced myself to do it, I'd get used to it.

The 1kb sizes though are appealing.

And I know XD Shoujo is shoujo! It's supposed to be (mostly) predictable. If it wasn't, we'd have a heart-attack every time something bad was about to happen. How could it be shoujo if the bishie doesn't jump in to save the day?!

D: Ardour. i actually like the main girl, but the main guy bugs me a bit so i stopped at volume 3 or 4.

it runs in taiwan btw up to nine i think. (:

Good to know! I'll have to change that on future posts. Although it's a shame that the main guy doesn't shape up :-/ I was contemplating hope since the scanlation only runs to volume 2 and while he seemed to be a jerk, he had his good moments? I think?


Thank-you for the heads up and the comment ♥

Lol, yah he's not a jerk the whole way through. But his personality is really typical for shoujo manga guys and it's a huge no-no for me in taiwanese manga. Usually the stories are more unique == ~
