A comprehensive fan work archive devoted to my all time favorite anime character, Dilandau Albatou from "Vision of Escaflowne", containing art, fiction, doujinshi, skins, wallpapers, and all other manners of fan-produced work. Slap Slap Slap was basically my shameless excuse to gather any and all pretty Dilandau fanwork I could find and put it all up in one convenient spot for my personal enjoyment, as well as a place to post my own art and writing. It remained my daily project, maintenance and regular-revision-wise, until late 2003 when I got tired of trying to find more content to help it grow, so now I only update after the submissions begin to pile up my inbox. It was irritating emailing out requests to bloody fan artists and authors and never getting a reply back. (I'm a bitter bugger.)
In the early stages of design for version 1.0 I had a completely different layout idea, but then as all things eventually do,
it all went to hell in a handbag for reasons unknown. It was too dark and there was simply too much dead space to fill up without it becoming eye straining. Coding the first version spawned a whole new nasty load of HTML issues and some big bugs that I couldn't work out properly, so as with many ambitious but failed attempts, I trashed the whole thing and began on the new version 2.0.
The red, black, and silver color scheme was carried over to
