This is extremely good advice. History has shown that my jokes
require a 3 page minimum explanation. ^_^
On the subject, here's some handy hints for anyone who wishes to get
the most out of their Yuricon ML experience.
1. Our beloved Erica has oodles of cash. Mountains of money, and it
keeps piling up. Help our Erica spend it by telling her which yuri
manga she should buy. She will, and thank you for it.
2. In addition to loads of cash, Erica also has loads of free time,
and desperately needs new tasks to keep her hands and minds occupied.
If you find a particular manga you like, demand that Erica take the
time to scan and translate it for you. Scanlations are great fun, and
Erica will always reward you after it's done. Often with sugary treats.
3. It is important to remember that our esteemed founder has
particular requirements for scanlations. While she will gladly
scanlate anything for anyone, she is not very fond of violence. Try
to ensure the yurilicious cast don't use guns, swords, or any such
violent instruments. Also, no-one rides a motorbike without a helmet.
Good yuri is safe yuri.
4. Angst is all well and good, but Erica also likes some nice
bubblegum fluff stuff on occasion. Erica will always scanlate with
great speed and quality if the cast are young, cute, a lil' ditzy, and
prone to grabbing each other's bouncy boobs from behind, inducing an
always entertaining "KYA!" Erica loves kyanime. Oh yeah, and maid
uniforms. No glasses, though. Glasses are a disability, and she
hates people drawing attention to them.
5. There is such a thing as yuri overload, and this has left Erica
with a yearning for a nice male protagonist in her yuri stories. So,
if you know of an anime which stars a young man, but also features
cute perky girls who are into booby-grabbin' (in maid's uniform), buy
her the DVD Box set. You will have fansubs by the end of the week.
6. Always concerned for her public image, Erica is deathly afraid to
be seen to be "selling out." The Yuricon shop weighs heavily upon
her, so rather than buy anything and add to her ethical dilemma,
download everything instead and share it via BitTorrent. You're
sharing yuri goodness with the world, and helping Erica "keep it real."
7. If you really want to score points, don't forget that Erica is the
original anime fangrrl. Call her Erica-chan, and refer to every
single anime character as XXXX-chan. If you ever type someone's name,
add the -chan. Include your own.
