  • Since I'm failing miserably with my writing and Vocaloiding right now, I figured I'd bury my sorrows in FoMT:TLE.

    I'm at the end of Year 1, and I already have all of the Blessed Tools! This is easily a new record. Now all I need is to order the stupid clock so I can get the Big Bed and propose to Rick, but the Shopping Channel just HAS to go off-air for the end of Winter and beginning of Spring. Frickin' annoying. But still, I'll be a married (wo)man within another season!

    At least I'm doing well in one life, even if it's just digital.

    Relatable. I'm a mess in every aspect but at least I have a strong team of magical girls in Magia Record rofl
    It's so bad. It's so bad, and everyone's gonna hate it, and I'm gonna humiliate myself if I post it, but I've spent so much freaking time on it that I can't just throw it out. I don't know what to do.

    I've done everything I can think to do. It's just not sounding good, no matter how hard I try. I might upload the current product here and get everyone's opinion and see if it's worth trying to save or not, but it just... I'm upset. No matter how hard I work it doesn't sound good and I don't know why.

    Getting a second opinion is a good idea! And if you're feeling lost, just sit on it, make more different covers and come back to it when you'll feel more experienced and ready.
    Frickin' Haiyi. Frickin' $95.34 plus $2.33 domestic shipping plus undetermined international shipping. Frickin' frick.

    I'm gonna wait. I was just checking out what it'd take to get her shipped. I wanna get her after I get NemuRion though!

    Eleanor/Genbu/Renri are only free because they're either incomplete (Renri, Genbu) or were a test VB (Eleanor). Never a good idea to base prices off them given that AiKO has been out for ages at $60 and the Quadimension Vbs are significantly higher quality. They're basically around the same price as most VOCALOID voicebanks, I believe Superbuy offer a calculator for shipping somewhere on their site (weight will be 200g) if you want to figure out a ballpark for that.

    Yeah. I admit I was coming from a place of ignorance. Prior to joining these forums two months ago, the only other vocal synth I even knew about was UTAU, so seeing a synth that offers voicebanks for free, I was like "Oof, why are they making us pay for other VBs?" Given the quality of the Medium5 sisters, I think the price is absolutely fair! I was just... caught off guard by it, I guess. :piko_ani_lili:
    I've got a comment on my newest chapter - from someone I've never seen on my fics before! They left it on anon, so I hope they check back and see the response I left. (They asked a question, so I answered it and then thanked them.)

    ...do you have to enter an email address to comment on anon on Ao3? I know some sites make you do that, but I don't have enough experience going anon on Ao3 to know for sure.

    Yea! Seems like you have to but most people use 10 minute mail for this kind of stuff so it's not really an issue.

    Okay. I was hoping they entered an email so they'd be notified that I responded is all. Thank you!

    If they used 10 minute mail they wont get notified but maybe theyll go hack to ur fic to see if you left a reply!
    The logical half of my brain: "I just posted this chapter a few hours ago. I write for a rarepair and there's tons of Vocaloid fics on Ao3, so it's natural that it's only gotten two views. It's doing well, all things considered!"

    The other, much louder half of my brain: "Welp. Everyone hates it. Time to delete my account, move to New Zealand to start a new life as a sheep herder, and never write again."

    This happens literally every time I post a new chapter. How do you just... not care? Because I care too much, heh.

    It takes a while to shake the feeling of people not liking something because it's not getting as much attention as you'd like. It's disappointing, but if you just kinda "write for yourself" (cheesy. I know) rather than hoping to get a lot of views or smth, you'll get more enjoyment out of it and feel better . :kaito2_move:

    (Also, not checking your views/etc. often helps a lot. Because when you go a longer time and then check, it looks like there's more stuff than if you, say, check daily. Maybe check once a week or a couple days after you upload a new chapter, then leave it.)
    I literally JUST finished rendering a new cover last night, and I've already found my next project. I can't stop. Help.

    I found a Japanese version of Seattle Story II, so I'm gonna cover that next! Since I can't link Bilibili videos right now, here's the original, reprinted on YouTube:

    I really wanna cover it with Len as Ling and Oliver as Tianyi, because it perfectly fits my headcanons for them (right down to Oliver being able to eat his body weight in a single meal :LOL: ), but I haven't decided for sure yet.

    I love covers I know how you feel! Ill have 10 in progress and then Ill discover a vsqx for a song i like and im like "alright add that to the list"
    Can we not post videos from Bilibili here? I've attempted and it won't show up. I tested it out a few places to see if it was just the page, but it hasn't changed.

    I posted the link alone and through the Media button under that last post. Nothing's showing up on my end. Can you see it? Maybe it's just my computer...

    No, I don't see anything. Definitely something to post to that issues thread I mentioned.

    Okay. Thank you!
    One of my favorite Oliver users is coming out with a mini-album... that has two Oliver/Len duets on it! (I've heard one of them, but I think the other one is new.) Today's a good day.
    I've finally got the rendering done for Futari De! That makes it the second of my seventeen WIPs that's actually been fully rendered. Now to start on some tuning!
    Covering Futari De is turning me into an emotional wreck. I have to listen to it a lot to make sure I'm getting the harmonies correct, and it's tearing me apart because it's one of the few OliLen duets that's 1.) really, really good and 2.) fluffy and happy and romantic rather than dramatic or sexualized.

    Listening to it once is enough to make me curl up into a ball of tears asking my three cats why I can't have a love like that. Listening to it over and over again makes me wanna drive out into an open field and watch the stars and be at one with the universe.

    Which means I'm not getting much done.
    I've finished subbing about a third of Atlantis! I'd get a lot more done if Krita didn't keep randomly force-closing... and then there's the issue of trying to keep the text colored to where it can be read, and wondering if the text occasionally changing color is too distracting... Gah, I'm no good at this. I'm hoping it'll be worth it, though!
    Ah, it's finally finished! I'm considering uploading a subbed version of the original video, but given China's attitude with sharing videos... but there's two different versions that are on YouTube, and they haven't been touched yet, so I don't know if it would be alright.
