    This is SO good. If you end up making a full version, you better share a link because I will want to listen to it.

    Thank you!! This was the result of 10 minutes of tinkering. It's a very dense song, but I've always loved how intense it is, so I think it'd be fun to cover in full!
    I forgot how unpredictable online auctions are. I placed a sniper bid for Rin and Len ACT2 and Append for $30, and I got outbid by like five more sniper bids and they ended up selling for twice that.

    Ah well. I won't get my coveted Kagamine Append box anytime soon, but someday I will! I have faith!

    I don’t know if you’re looking for new or used, but Soundhouse has new copies of RinLen append.

    Ah, I really just want their box. Their Append designs are my favorite, but I already own their V4Xs, so I don’t have any use for the VBs themselves. Thank you though!!

    Like, as a large-chested woman myself, this honest-to-God looks painful in a couple of places. I'd be doubled over regretting my life choices instead of dancing. Someone please get this poor sweet girl a bra with proper support.

    I used to be one of those people who got really offended when people drew oversized chests and be like OMG UR SeXUaliZIng tHEM, but as now that I've been trying to get better at anatomy I realized it's actually difficult af to draw the chest in an anatomically proportionate way, lol. (Especially when everything you draw looks like it's leaning or is asymmetrical. >~<)(Also, I can never not feel awkward drawing it, even if no one's around, lmao.)

    I used to get super mad about it too but then I calmed down over time, idk. I've gotten so desensitized to bodies I think. I'll draw naked women on my class notes. I'll draw naked men too. I don't even care anymore!! :P
    Haiyi's boobs get bigger every time she's reintroduced.

    I don't know what point I'm trying to make in stating this, it's just something I keep noticing.

    I was really hoping my Imaginative Writing class would help me pinpoint my strengths and weaknesses and help me grow as a writer, but right now I'm just... I dunno. I'm feeling defeated.

    We shared our poems in class today. We decided we'd share and then let the class discuss. Discussions for each ran about ten to fifteen minutes until we got to mine.

    I read it. One guy said the voice was very clearly mine, which I don't know whether that's a good or a bad thing, but I'll take it. One girl said I italicized a word that didn't need italicized. That's fair. I do love overusing italics. The professor pointed out a glaring logical fallacy at the end of the poem. Yeah, I'd overlooked it, that's fair, the whole thing's stronger without it.

    This was said over the course of about two minutes. Then we moved on to the next person, whose poem we spent well over ten minutes discussing.

    I don't know. Is my writing that bad? Bad enough that there's not much more to do than point out the more glaring issues and then just leave the rest alone because no amount of critique or feedback will save it? Is that why no one can tell me what's wrong with my writing: because my writing in general is what's wrong, and there's no fixing it, no hope of turning it into something readable, much less enjoyable? The thought wouldn't hurt as much were it not for the implication that my one lifelong passion is nothing more than a hopeless endeavor, leading me nowhere after twenty years of sinking so much effort into it.

    I'm gonna take a nap. orz

    Basically, it was a four-page long reflection on a failed relationship, and one of the last stanzas mentioned "The memories are fading/the emotions stagnating" when I'd just spent the past three-and-a-half pages vividly recalling the emotions certain memories made me feel. Complete logical fallacy on my part, heh.

    I don't think a lack of feedback means the writing is bad, though. In the first place, I'm sure lots of people read but don't comment at all because they're just looking to read and enjoy. Even if you ASK them to, most of them will probably ignore it and do what they want, just because they're not interested in going to the trouble. Look even at the new music releases we have here on VVN. We get a lot more people commenting now, but both here and back on VO, mostly new releases received no feedback at all for a long time. And the reason we get more feedback now is largely because there are a few people who seem to be consciously making the effort to support people, or else are simply interested in doing so.

    Does the site where you're hosting your fiction give you information on how many people have viewed the page containing your story/stories?

    Mm, I can see the oversight with that last stanza of that poem, but honestly, I've had that very feeling--where I felt like memories were fading, but I'd just been thinking about how I felt about them in great detail. The issue here is really a nitpicky one of articulating what's fading away and what remains. Maybe the memories are fading away, and you can tell they're not the way they used to be, but as you've been writing, you've been essentially giving them a last gasp before they're gone. Or maybe the details of the memories are fuzzy, but you can clearly recall how you felt
    Or something like that. You just need to clearly understand in detail what you're thinking/feeling and express it in the right way to split that hair :) .

    Yeah, that's true. It's still discouraging when the ones that do comment rarely comment on the content and just say "Cool, thanks, looking forward to the next chapter" or something. And yeah, Ao3 shows you how many people have viewed a work. I don't get a lot of views on anything other than my old Kung Fu Panda fics.
    Oh! I forgot to post it outside of my journal: here's a sneak peak at a cover I'm working on! It's hard to balance out, but hopefully I'll figure it out...

    I'd still recommend jumping on them as soon as possible, honestly. You could open up quick commissions to make up for it or even sell the other two if you don't plan on using them. Now that the word is out that they're ACT1, it might be wise. I'm sure you'll be okay! I'm just anxious for you. 😅

    As of today, I’ve been using Haiyi for a month! Happy Monthiversary, baby! 💗:haiyi_ani_lili: 💗

    To make matters even better, my professor declared a Mental Health Day and let us out of class 40 minutes early, so, lacking much else to do but go home, I went into the local Office Depot, where I found - at long last - a perfect set of bookends!!! Now I don’t have to keep my boxes awkwardly propped up with lotion bottles.

    @static-oceans Here it is: front, back, and inside image! (The inside has separate inserts for the manual/promotional papers, Natural bank, Soft bank, and promotional CD, so it's really hard to see the inside image while it's in the case.)

    thank you so much!! it's really similar to the normal separate banks, just that the respective illustration is on there with a solid color background (pink for natural green for soft)
    This has been weighing on my mind for a while, so I just wanna share it.

    I headcanon that Haiyi's a very kind girl with the best of intentions that really cares about everyone's well being. She's also... not... particularly bright. Being the protector of the ocean, birthed of the sea itself, water and various sea creatures frequently come to her rescue because she keeps doing really stupid things in pure oblivion. And since they're unfailingly loyal to her, she never realizes just how dangerous some of the things she does is, so she just keeps on doing them.

    For example, she loves diving into bodies of water from great heights. In most of these cases, the heights are so high that an average person's spine would snap like a twig upon contact with the water. So the water has to adjust its molecular structure and make itself softer so she doesn't instantly die.

    That said, she's also fully capable of commanding the sea at her will (or, well, any body of water), like a waterbender or something. Her primary home is located in the East China Sea, and when she wants to bring someone there with her, she creates a bubble around them that both enables them to breathe and protects them from deepening water pressures.

    The water is also her primary source of travel. Every so often she'll meet up with one/some/all of her sisters, and she'll reach them by swimming into whichever river will get her from the sea inland fastest. She's an absurdly fast swimmer and takes hours to tire.

    She's also a major recycling advocate, for obvious reasons.
    I'm probably gonna wait until I've got one of Haiyi's sisters to fully invest in that cover. (She'd sound fine singing it herself, but it's supposed to be a duet, and she just... doesn't sound good with any of the DVs/UTAUs I've tried.) Still, after such a stressful hunt, I'm so happy I've got the off-vocal for it! I'll at least be able to hang onto it.

    Now to give Haiyi a much-needed rest and get back to my Japanese covers.

    Preferably something kinda cute that can handle high notes. Some of this song goes outside of Haiyi's range (there's one note where, if you apply vibrato, it just cuts in and out repeatedly because the note sits right at the top of the notes she can actually voice), so that would be especially helpful!

    Mondays have apparently become Weekly Bitch at Darby Because of Her Unemployedness Day, so I'm trying to turn it into Weekly Darby Works Her Ass Off Harder Than Usually to Stop Being Unemployed Day. Of the ten stores I physically walked into in the past two hours to get my mother off my ass, I got two "No, we're not hiring, get out of here you're holding up the line"s, one "Yes, we're hiring, feel free to send an application!", and seven "Eh, go ahead and apply, worst we can say is no"s. So I'm hoping this is, if nothing else, a(nother) good start.
    God bless Redit. Someone made an entire subreddit offering to download stuff of of pan.baidu for people.

    Soooo guess who's finally got the off-vocal for I Didn't Take My Medicine Today!

    My local Walmart's stepping up their game! They got a whole bunch of new Naturals in. My personal favorites include a facial cream that seems to be a cheap (as in, a fourth of the price) dupe of Ole Henriksen's C-Rush Moisturizer (which is heavenly and smells like a Creamsicle) and an argan oil conditioner bar (whose one and only questionable ingredient is palm oil - no SLS to be found, just palm, olive, argan, tea tree, water, and glycerin)!

    I got the conditioner bar because my hair's got some serious issues. Here's hoping!

    I've legit got tears rolling down my face. I don't know why this is so funny, but my God it is.
    I really, REALLY like DV's method of inputting pitch bends (it's identical to CeVIO's - the only two synths I've used that have their shit fully together in that aspect). I just wish there were more VBs. Most of them, when I click on them on the DV wiki, just say "Upcoming" or "Canceled" or "Rumored".

    Gaaaaah. The majority on Bili require a QQ account to access, which - surprise! - I, as a foreigner, can't make. There's an international app, but it just redirects you to the main app, which refuses to sign you up if you don't have a Chinese phone number.

    Yay~ After searching a while, I found one in Mandarin that was available through Google Drive! She's got a powerful voice, but a lot of engine noise. Ah well. I'll have better luck finding Japanese vocals probably!
