OLSAL Volume 1
Purchase OLSAL
Welcome to the Official Of Light, Shadows and Love website. OLSAL, as we affectionately call it, is a story that was created and written by a team of authors on the Roleplay forum of Megatokyo, the immensely popular online comic created by Fred Gallagher. OLSAL is set in the fictional world of Megatokyo, a city loosely based on the Tokyo in which Fred's characters play out their lives. In this place, factions of fanboys and fangirls battle for and interact with their "idols", the characters of Fred's creation.

We have created OLSAL to tell a story, and hopefully, to help us to get to know each other better. OLSAL has always been a labor of love for us, and will always be so. All proceeds from sales of the novels and associated merchandise will go toward helping far-away or financially hindered members of our forums to meet during A-kon 2004 in Dallas, Texas, so that we may all be able to meet the people who have made our lives that much brighter.

Thank you for your support of our project.

As per the request of Fred Gallagher, we have made the entire text of OLSAL: Volume 1, available online! HTML pages are up now, just hit the "Story" button. Look for Microsoft Word and possibly Microsoft Reader e-book format in the near future! Books are, of course, still for sale. ^_^

No update in a while. Sorry about that! Anyway, All preorder novels have been shipped. However, we are still taking orders! When we run out of the first printing, we will get more. However, to ensure that we get a sufficient number of orders to make printing them worthwhile, the next shipping date will probably be in mid-October. Thank you for your support!

Otakon was a great success for us. Thank you all for your help and your support of the OLSAL project. For those who preordered, the books will be shipped near the end of this week or beginning of next. OLSAL volume 1 will still be for sale, although the next shipping date is up in the air. It really depends on how many orders we will get in the next few weeks or so. Again, thanks!

Also, the poster size has again changed! 11" X 17"! And, the price hasn't changed! All those who ordered posters will get it at the new, larger size. Enjoy!
