Advance notice - Upcoming doujinshi sale!

*brushes off the dust*

Hello hello fellow doujinshi fans~

Since I find myself less and less involved in these fandoms, and more and more in requirement of a deposit to buy a house and pay off debts, I'm going to put most of my doujinshi collection up for sale once I get off my ass to set up a selling post.

Up for sale will be doujinshis from the Naruto, Bleach and Prince of Tennis fandoms, along with some plushies and other collectibles I've gathered on my travels.

Photos of what you could soon own beneath the cut!Collapse )

I don't have a pic handy of all my PoT ones, but there are well over 200, including any doujinshis I've scanned. You'll find most of them archived in this community, and include circles like Komeya and e-plus.

So, I'm posting this a) because I'm lazy and b) to give my comm members first grabs at anything you really like.

If you spot something you've been wanting, then comment with your best offer.
Almost all are in mint condition unless they've been scanned, but even then I'm careful to press them back into shape.

Essential stuff you should know before offering:
~Offers and payment should be in US dollars via paypal (credit and debit cards accepted)
~Unless you're Australian, in which case you can offer in Aussie dollars and pay me via direct deposit (specify this in your offer).
~Once your payment is confirmed, I'll post within 5 days.
~I'll post worldwide. I live in Australia, so international postage will be similar to ordering from Japan (if not slightly more) of around US$14 flat rate up to 500gms/1lb insured, and less for standard airmail.
~I'll try to combine shipping for bigger lots, depending on how economical it is for you.
~All sales are final. I won't take returns.


oddrang asked me last week how I scan my books, so I thought I'd write a mini tutorial kinda thing. I'm going into basics because I hate it when people say to do things and then don't explain them, but I don't consider myself some condescending expert, just so everyone knows. :)

Firstly, I am a picky bitch and this tutorial is for getting scans as nice as I can make them. You don't have to do all of this, or even most of it (especially the cleaning parts) but I was asked and so I am answering! :D

Secondly, this tutorial is for black and white scanning of manga/doujinshi/comic-book-style images. You can use similar techniques for colour, but it can be more fiddly and take longer.

Thirdly, you can never scan perfectly off the bat (very rarely anyway) - I scan first, then 'clean' the scans in Photoshop (Paintshop Pro or Gimp will also work of course). You don't need to be an expert in PS to clean scans, you just need to know a few basics.

Fourthly, I have a really good monitor, so I can see things that others might not. This can be both a blessing and a curse, but in general, setting your brightness high and your contrast well is a very good start. A lot of steps might not be as... obvious? if your monitor isn't as good.

Fifthly, I break spines. I don't mind doing this, but not everyone likes to. Up to you how far you want to go.

OKAY! Now onto the actual scanning.

Here we go...Collapse )

And there you have it! Any suggestions or questions gladly taken :).

Ok. So, as we all know I had these grand plans to write you a witty and wonderful little piece of H/D fluff where they are sent on Auror training assignment to Buenos Aires. It would open with Harry sitting on the patio of a quiet little cafe, enjoying the scenery and swirling a little purple umbrella around in his icy cold Mojito. Enter a very disgruntled and dirty Malfoy who had refused to take Harry's advice on travel and had ended up Apparating himself some 30 miles away from the designation in the middle of a cattle field.

Malfoy would then scowl and call Harry a git and proceed to flop himself into the open seat across from him and turn, in his oh so snotty way, to the waitress and say "Déme un trabajo del soplo."

So begins a lovely scene in which the waitress begins screaming at Malfoy in spanish and even manages a few decent slaps to his head while Harry leans back and laughs whole heartedly at the situation. Then there would be some boy touching and smex.

But... I suck.

So you get nothing.



Hi Marks. I bring icons. Uh, enjoy?


Yo. Sugarmummeh. :D

So the Hikaru no Go fever has raged on while you were gone. SO MUCH LOVE. OMG! And I've gone insane making love posts and screencaps and.. etc. ANYWAY! While searching for HnG AMV on Youtube (and finding some gorgeous ones), I found this one...

Hikaru no Go, Meet South Park!Collapse )

Four Fics Por Vous!

Oh Marks. I meant to write you one of these every day and be all impressive but I'm a procrastinator at heart so here go some last-minute drabbles demonstrating my love, or at least my mutual fondness.

Hey, so an added note? These drabbles suck, length-wise, and spread to the realm of ficlets (maybe). So you don't have to read them all, but um...yeah. All unbeta'd.

DN/PoT x-over fic

Dear Marks,

This fic is full of crack. :/

It has Aozu and Cap to Bin, because canon boyband AUs are awesome, and it's actually the sequel to this fic, which should probably be read first, also because I fail at new and exciting fic ideas. There was Ryoma/L in that, and there is Fuji/Raito and InuTezu in this. Plus a surprise!

None of mousapelli's prompts, alas, but I hope it makes you smile anyway.

Love, Mei

I met Death and he has blue eyes
Death Note/Prince of Tennis, PG, Fuji/Raito, 1772 words

Gratuitous insertion of Atobe Keigo because I love him.Collapse )
