I'm gonna put this under an in-text spoiler for NSFW content:
How do you approach someone and say "Hello, I'm currently writing a chapter about two ageless androids who present as young men fucking passionately. Could you briefly ignore the oddity of the topic and give it a glance-over and maybe some practical feedback?"
Because my GOD my smut is awful, but by way of it being smut I still get good reviews, so I don't know how to improve, and I don't have the nerve to make anyone read it while it's still in progress because my WIPs are usually awful.
I've just gotta play the waiting game to get Haiyi's code. In the meantime, I added her to my collection and hung up the folder I got off eBay (it's too thin to be useful, but it makes a perfect piece of wall art!).
I've spent all night laying out the s5p for The Past is Like a Dream, so all I'll have to do once Haiyi gets here is plug her in, enter the lyrics, then get to tuning! Fun fact: Renri actually sounds gorgeous singing it, even though she's just saying "la" over and over again.
So since transferring for my bachelor's program, I've been living with my mom, sleeping either on the couch or in the spare room (which doubles as the cats' litter box room, and since one of my cats likes to LOUDLY announce his presence before using the bathroom, no matter what time of night it is, I usually sleep on the couch). But my baby sister's trying to gradually start sleeping in her own room (she usually just hangs out in it and then sleeps in my mom's room), so I've been given permission to start moving my stuff in!
I hung up my clothes in the closet and then ran to Lowe's to grab a bookshelf. I put my DIY skincare products on the bottom shelf, since they weigh like 50lbs all together, then I put my books on the next two shelves and my Vocaloid collection on the top shelf. Then to tie my new corner of the room together, I hung up a canvas painting of Bold and Brash.
I'm really happy. I'd like to be able to get my own bedding soon too!
I did the fine-tuning using the VB the person wanted, and they mentioned wanting to release it for her anniversary, so I won't post the end result (though dang it I want to, I'm pretty proud of it!). But I'm happy I was able to help someone out!
...why can't I get VSQs done that fast when I'm just doing them for fun?
I wanna thank @patuk and @RoboCheatsyTM and literally everyone else who encouraged and educated me regarding my UTAU ignorance. I think I'm getting the hang of it, and I'm really starting to have fun with it!
Y'know? Considering this is my first shot at a UST, and considering I haven't even tuned it yet... it doesn't sound awful. (Except for that one section where I completely forgot to put in the lyrics, but I fixed that pretty quickly. )
