You know what this post needs? More naked models.

But I suppose a blackmailed Hiyoki will have to do.

So, apparently it’s that asshole Cain’s birthday today. This is a sad, sad coincidence. Have a picture of Hiyoki being blackmailed by him to remind us all of what a dick that guy is.

I hate Cain. /end tirade But in honor of Hiyoki’s constant suffering at his hands, have a chapter of SLH instead, edited at the hardy and stalwart hand of Shinigami, and QC’d by Melfra. Enjoy it!

Typeset by ZippyZippy (in zippy fashion!), edited by Melfra (I’M SORRY BB, I LU D=), and QC’d by Melfra. ILU GUYS SO BAD.

That’s it for this week! We may or may not be going on hiatus for next week… It’s that (dreaded) time of the year again — THE TWELVE DAYS OF DOUJINSHI.

SLH chapter 10

Don’t you hate it when Cain spoils a perfectly good goth loli?

I feel dirty for using Cain for the teaser image.

Welcome to Tuesdays at Turtle Paradise. It’s cold as hell and I can’t be arsed to move my fingers more than absolutely necessary, so let’s make this short and sweet: Melly and I DOMINATED THIS CHAPTER. For a small fee, we’d be happy to send you a copy of the tape. It’s hot. I expect it’ll be on torrent sites in a few hours, though, so you may as well wait.

ANYWAY. Two chapters of SLH in two weeks!? Oh, ya damn right. Can you expect more of this in the future? …Heh heh heh… On that note, we’re halfway through the series. Hurray!

Par for the SLH COURSE

I’ll give you two guesses as to why I’m posting at almost one in the morning on a, well, Friday morning, and your first one doesn’t count. If you guessed that I was plotting a hostile take-over of the forum, you were wrong! I already OWN the forum! (At least, that’s what Melly lets me think) Damn good thing the first one didn’t count, huh? That said, we DO have version two of chapter nine of SLH! (Is this turning into a pattern!?)

Anywho, let’s run down the upgrades! (Get it? Run DOWN the UP… Oh, forget it.)

-First, I managed to forget to resize a total filler page. I know. Isn’t that pathetic? I feel bad about it, myself.

-Second, a little cbox-sleuthing (that’s forum-speak, by the way) led us to the conclusion that a bit of Kousetsu’s grammar this chapter was a wee off, so we fixed that up, while we were at it. Hurray! And the filesize is significantly smaller this time around, thanks to the ever-handy optipng program. (You can trust the TP team with your diskspace. Just not a roll of toilet paper and a dark house. Heh, heh… Little Halloween humor, there.)

See you on Tuesday! AND GOOD NIGHT.

You want SLH? You can’t handle SLH… CHAPTER 9!

Surprise! Yamashina’s the dark and mysterious character in this mango. (O Yamashina <3)

This chapter… THIS CHAPTER. I stayed up all night editing those damned introductory pages, but that might have more to do with the fact that I’m using a computer that’s older than the dirt under my fingernails. Woe, I mourn my laptop. (Still.)

THIS CHAPTER. HAS YAMASHINA. And Gai. AND YAMASHINA. And Gai. And cake, traps, and girly times at the mall. Take that as you will, I suppose. Hell, between Gai and Yamashina at each other’s THROATS, and Ren FREAKING THE HELL OUT, that alone makes this chapter worth reading.

Oh. And the credits page. Heeheehee.

On that note, happy birthday, Vanessa-chan. ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE. /pimp

We’re recruiting more staff, btw, especially editors. Go apply at the forum, if you think you’ve got what it takes!

Happy… late monday? SLH ch. 8 & Omamori ch. 8!

Ishizaka’s a smooth operator. You’ll only catch him in the act if he WANTS you to catch him in the act.

I just realized that last week all we released were chapter sevens, and this week it’s chapter eights. What’s up with that? Greets all, and welcome to Tuesday’s installment of Monday’s releases. Wait… what? Yeah, sorry ’bout that. I got sick yesterday and, well, there were some things I wanted to take care of before we released this week. On to the goods!

Another new chapter of Omamori?! You got it, and the plot keeps on a’rollin’. Intrigue? In MY moe-mori? It’s more likely than you’d think! Also, Ishikawa-sensei is AMAZING. Even if this is the ONLY TIME they ever say his name. OTL Typesetting by Zippy, editing by Shinigami, and QC’d by Clov3r and Melfra!

And next up, a new chapter of SLH! Already!? That’s right! We’re trying our damndest to pick up the pace on this one because, uh… Hell, we feel like it. And you get to reap the benefits! AND MAYFEST IS FINALLY OVER THANK GOD. Typesetting credits go to Zippy (BUSY GIRL =D), editing by Shinigami (equally busy!), and QC’d by Clov3r and Melfra (even MORE BUSY!)

Incidentally, that wraps up volume 2. On to volume 3, our favorite in the bunch! Ah, also, we’ve got a small re-release of chapter 7… Melly and I discovered that we had the opening color page all along, only we’d misplaced it! JOY! And it’s probably my favorite image from SLH, so have at ye. =3

In addition to which, I edited a line in ch. 6 for clarification. (The scene with Shizuka and Cain directly after Hiyoki flees A-Hall.) It’s minor, but it should clarify some confusion on the point. The change is outlined at the beginning of ch. 8. (lawl, oh god, this is technically ver. 3, isn’t it? WIN!)

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go take a nap, or some such. ENJOY! (The reader will be updated a bit later.)
