The Cross-Date

The Cross-DateHere’s a multi-image TG vignette that’s a bit different than anything else I’ve written. I was looking for a way to more tightly integrate the imagery with the text, and this is what I came up with. Note that the text within the pictures is part of the flow of the story (as opposed to being an aside), so make sure to read the image text in the order it appears on the page.

As for the subject matter, it’s your basic man dressed up as a woman going on a date with a woman dressed as a man (or so it would appear). Yawn. Seen it all before, haven’t you? You know the drill; just read it already. It’s formatted so nicely, and reads so smoothly, you might just enjoy yourself.

    • Sorry for the confusion. It is the first of its kind, so some growing pains are to be expected.

      I designed each page with the image on the left side, implying that the image text is to be read FIRST, followed by the columns of text to the right. That’s probably clear enough; the order of the text within each image, not so much. This is a problem with many captions. Most of these read nicely from top to bottom, but a few have text balloons in parallel. When you see that, read left-to-right and then top-to-bottom, same as in any book. The one image that might still be a wee bit confusing is on Page 4 (all one image, no side text). Here, the image is naturally split in two by the window frame down the center, so follow the usual rule on each half; first the left half, then the right.

      I hope that helps. I don’t plan on altering this file, but I’ll keep your comment in mind for next time.

A reply would be appreciated, but is not required...
