Ryo's anger

Trying to post a chapter, but LJ will not allow me to have paragraph breaks

Hello FAKE readers, I'm trying to post the first chapter of a new FAKE story here, but LJ will not allow me to have paragraph breaks and I don't know what I have to do to get 'em. Unfortunately, I'm almost out of time for today, so if LJ doesn't stop glitching like this, I may not be able to publish today. I looked up how to do paragraph breaks in html, but if I go to html, then I have to re-format everything, and I just don't have a spare hour to do that line by line, plus when I tried it I got super-large spaces between my paragraphs and I don't know why that's happening either. Any suggestions?

Dragon Lady, Chapter One

Hello again! I think I got around the problem. I remembered something worth trying, which was to change browsers. It wasn't perfect, but it's workable. I've got weird spacing and font sizing happening now, but at least I can post.
This is the first chapter of a new story, and  it will probably run to 6 chapters total. Well, okay, maybe 7. I'll be posting once a week throughout the Christmas season
and beyond, so I hope you'll come back regularly to read the updates!  Here we go...

Dragon Lady

By Brit Columbia

Fandom: FAKE
Timeline: Set after Justice in July of the FAKE First Year Together series. Also set after Volume 7 of FAKE
Summary: JJ is unhappy about a woman Drake has recently started seeing, and feels that Drake needs to be rescued.

Rating:  This whole story is worksafe.
Disclaimer: FAKE, featuring Dee, Ryo, Bikky, Carol, Ted, Drake, and JJ, was created by Sanami Matoh. I make no claim on FAKE or Ms. Matoh or any of her characters. I write fanfiction with no expectation of monetary reward.
Author's Notes:  Detectives James Chang and Eliza Austen are my characters. So are Lily and her brother, and Bridget, James’s girlfriend.

Bridget first appeared in FAKE First Year Together: A New Day, in Chapter 6. She was interested in Ryo, but later when she showed up at the station looking for Ryo, Dee managed to deflect her onto James instead.

Lily has appeared twice before in my FAKE stories. She was first introduced in Chapter 15 of A New Day when Ryo had lunch with Drake at a Chinese restaurant. Later she appeared about halfway through Slave to a Gladiator.
