  • Sometimes I still think about Avanna's missing male counterpart and what this could imply lore-wise

    Perhaps he passed away or deserted her, thus making Avanna a bit more melancholy than she'd otherwise be?
    Perhaps he was rendered mute, never to have his voice heard again, and Avanna sings partly to be the voice he lacks?
    Or in a more lighthearted path, he's otherwise fine, but can't sing for the life of him or otherwise didn't make the cut to become a Vocaloid. (That's probably what I'd pin on Dariusz, the unofficial male counterpart AkiGlancy designed. I HC him to be a born-and-bred Dubliner (or that he grew up near Dublin) of Polish descent, with an introverted, gruff-but-caring-deep-down sort of personality, and I like to imagine he's very much alive.)

    Maybe it's all of them and there were different contenders
    avanna singing energetic/"hype" songs with her soft deepish voice is hilarious

    probably best to leave those kinds of songs to miku and gumi but it's still worth a giggle

    oliver would be even funnier though. imagine oliver singing a kira song
    just found out daina and dex are the only two vocaloids whose names start with d (unless cyber diva counts)

    mainly because i had this dumb thought to recreate the studio c "dana's dead" tongue twister but it's "daina's dead". probably one of those thoughts that won't turn into anything haha
    i actually made a google doc of every vocaloid's bmi (every vocaloid with a canon, or at least conceptual, height + weight that is)

    thinnest female (and thinnest overall) is yuezheng ling at 16.0/160cm and 41kg/~5'3" and ~90lbs

    heaviest female (and heaviest, bmi-wise, overall) is avanna at 25.2/5'6" and 156lbs/~168cm and ~71kg (with her alternate weight of 110lbs/~50kg, given due to how thin her boxart appearance looks, it's brought all the way down to 17.8 though. i do agree that her boxart looks quite thin, but i do like the idea of her being more full-figured with how skinny all the other girls are)

    thinnest male is yohioloid at 18.2/177cm and 57kg/~5'10" and ~126lbs

    heaviest is big al (western design) at 23.1/6'4" and 190lbs/193cm and 86kg

    also most vocaloids with canon weights are underweight T_T
    i was listening to english-language (and some partially-english) celtic music and it made me think

    would avanna speak in a modern way...or would her speech come straight from the lyrics of these songs? with 'tis and 'twas and more gaelic-esque use of grammar at times

    she's a "pop and celtic" vocal so it's hard to know what to do. should she speak like she time-traveled from the past (or is immortal and WAY older than she looks), or should she speak like a modern-day young irish woman? or...some blend of both?

    Wouldn't surprise me if she did.. However for an unknown reason now i imagine her covering For ye Jacobites because I've auto-spammed myself with the Tri Yann's version XD
    Decided it was best not to be into like, extracting Vocaloid samples and stuff anymore. It felt like I was learning too much and the community around that was seemingly trying to convince me to do more than I was comfortable with (such as making "homebrew" Vocaloids with the devkit and the like). I figure it's best I just enjoy tuning and stuff without getting so insanely, not-so-legally deep into it.

    Yeah. I'm gonna be a good girl again.
    i missed nostraightanswer's digital stars but his setlist might've included avanna since the dots was on there

    though i dunno if it's anything compared to rewind+'s digital stars having mr kevin synthv himself

    sorry! I misunderstood the message and thought that you didn't know the other tracks from the setlist :tianyi_lili:

    Honestly it'd make sense, since her V2 I always imagined her being in that age range because I'd pictured her well as the big sister that would be in-between Miku and Luka's ages (you know, like in those 1990's cartoons or comics where you have the elder sister being the pepsy nerd of the family and displaying either very mature or teasing behaviour who's still a teenager, but ready to be an adult very soon compared with younger siblings)
    AmazingStrange39

    also, her being 17 would put her smack in the middle of miku (16) and avanna (18) which works out well for my vocaloid trio
    I hear a lot of Galaco slander but IMO her voice is nice and soft, there's nothing wrong with a soft voice. she has a unique "mutter-y" tone to her

    I think she sounds best in electronic music above all...like her VP's song, Galaxias

    (i wonder if avanna fans are statistically more likely to like galaco...soft voice, dark wavy hair, mid-length skirt :P)
    i'd like to take a moment to thank the vocaloid fandom for largely NOT dooming avanna to the status of meiko/haku type portrayals despite the stereotype of irish people drinking a lot

    we didn't need another "drunk" character just because she's irish, so i'm grateful for all the fans who didn't relegate her to that role. in fact i feel avanna is one of the more nicely-portrayed vocaloids from what i've seen

    (i mean, i guess part of it could be her being too young to drink in some countries, but still)
    AmazingStrange39
    AmazingStrange39
    Right??? Plus people would probably be quick to call out stereotypes (and of course American, Japanese, etc. fans would complain about underage drinking)

    Also I read about Irish people apparently loving flat 7up as a placebo "catch-all cure" of sorts so I have a headcanon that she really likes 7up :P (funnily enough i recall being given 7up as a kid as something to drink during an episode of a stomach bug or something)

    I've also seen her as a fan of tea lately, she might enjoy coffee as well (i imagine her to be one of those "more cream and sugar/sweetener than actual coffee" people though)

    Actually she seems so chill I picture her well in a forest playing music and being a huge fan of Alan Stivell and Tri Yann (but i guess it's just my bias lol) as well as famous Irish artists
    AmazingStrange39
    AmazingStrange39
    yeah, she's definitely got a very affable and sweet appearance which matches her soft voice
    If there's an Irish Miku for the Miku World Journey event I would probably be quick to jump to draw her with AVANNA
    i wonder if people have to be reminded that avanna is 18

    she comes across as so mature yet she's BARELY an adult (she can't even DRINK in certain countries, including my own)

    meanwhile anri is 21 and looks miku's age

    tbf this does kinda mirror real life. people act with surprise when they hear my age from time to time

    Well, le'ts say I relate heavily to AVANNA (though I had it even worse than her at some point when being a minor OTL)
    sometimes i still think about how avanna was used in an official hello kitty cooking game

    what's funny is that i do technically see avanna being a skilled cook/baker so content of her cheerfully singing a recipe isn't too far off from my headcanons haha

    (hello kitty's magic apron, for anyone wondering. vy1 was used in the japanese version if my memory serves correct; the english version DEFINITELY uses avanna and i know because i have her)

    it's a testament to how soothing avanna's voice is that even so pitched up she doesn't sound annoying
    AmazingStrange39
    AmazingStrange39
    YES! exactly!

    i think she has a unique and special quality that not even her voice provider has. i guess it's her vp's voice combined with the vocaloid engine

    it's part of why i'm not pining for avanna ai like some other avanna fans are (other than that i'd kind of expect the ai to dilute her accent into more "neutral pop-song english" territory)
    Watched both "Angela's Christmas" specials on Netflix today. Hearing voice-acted Irish English should help me with tuning Avanna in Talkloids, as going purely off stuff like street interviews could result in something too fast and hard to understand, and too much filler. Also it's a really cute and heartwarming series. (I feel it's late enough in the year to comfortably watch Christmas movies.)

    Puffin Rock is also a thing, but most of the characters that aren't the narrator have Northern Irish accents (an accent Avanna does not have; her voice provider is from the Republic (non-UK part) of Ireland). (It is a very cute and educational series though, and if anything it could help shape Avanna's interests and perhaps the wildlife she'd be familiar with.) I've been considering picking up The Secret of Kells or something, and I've recently discovered that the kids' branch of RTE (basically the Irish equivalent to BBC) has clips of their shows up. I'm mostly going for cartoons as I'm aiming for my Talkloids to be family-friendly as well as clear and easy to understand.

    omg secret of kells is a masterpiece but also it made me cry 😭 you should def pick it up
    I recently made a headcanon for Avanna's origins as a Zero-G Vocaloid: Zero-G sent a couple of talent scouts to Ireland with an interest in recruiting a "Celtic" singer, and though they searched among professionals, upon one of them hearing soft singing nearby as they were walking, he found the singer's voice gorgeous and decided she was the one. And thus, a freckle-faced girl (who also happened to be part-elf) was pulled off the streets of Dublin to become a professional singer. (Not that she was necessarily living on the streets, more that she just happened to be in the right place at the right time.)

    She felt depressed for a while at the news that they couldn't find the right male singer to be her promised counterpart, having searched Ireland, Scotland, Wales and even the Isle of Man. Though she suggested her friend Dariusz (a concept character Avanna's artist drew), it turned out that unfortunately he couldn't sing, so he couldn't be her counterpart. Avanna and Dariusz remain friends and keep in touch.
    Headcanon: When Avanna met the other Zero-Gs she was absolutely mortified hearing of Tonio's martini habits.

    Sonika: But Tonio refused to swim, because he doesn't trust non-martini-based liquids!
    Avanna, turning pale: Are...are ye not concerned? His poor liver...
    Sonika: I hadn't thought of that...
    Prima: I've been trying to get him to drink more water for the sake of his vocal health...
    Avanna: *Laughs nervously* Ehm, I'm not sure vocal health's the main concern here. I don't want to imagine his future, like...how he looks so well-put-together is anyone's guess.
    (Tonio, shouting from the distance: SHE'S EXAGGERATING!)

    basically she has the tendency to be kind of innocent and gullible despite her otherwise caring and mature ways
