We are literally almost 24 hours away from Valentines Day. Time to start posting your V/a/lentines and how things are coming along with your gifts. Also, post waifus if you want.
PGfrom Swedenyour gift will be about two weeks late. Don't worry, I got you something nice.
Fuck, I forgot there was a V/a/lentines exchange. Literally forgot the holiday even existed until this thread.
Are we doing a collage this year? I don't know how I literally missed all of the stuff about gift exchanges and all that, but I want to make sure my love for my waifu is immortalized another year.
I sent out my first package and all my cards the day before yesterday, and my last package for my anon today.
Hopefully something gets to him on valentines day, as well as my cards. I had a hard time getting everything done with the weather this year.
I got a card in the mail today.
I couldn't wait to open it until valentines day itself, so I have it displayed on my work desk.
I loved the card anon, not everyday you get three different drawings in one card!
I understand completely about being distraught over Moot Leaving. It was quite sudden. But you will be happy to know your card wasn't late, but in fact early!
I got a large package filled with stuff! Can't wait to get home so I can see what is inside!
Detail on card.
I sent my packages out by Priority Mail two days ago, so they should get there today.
I think I remember Blue saying there were about 40-50 signups this year, so it should cut out a lot of the riff raff.
Fuck, I miss Christmas last time. This time I'll spent V/a/lentine with you guys
That's alright, there were a few Asukafag submissions in any case,
though I was the only one who got in, from when I looked at itThankfully at least one other was in Jebus' video.
Wish I had a better camera though.
Where is it? Let me see it please
I was away from /a/ and don't know shit at least until New Year
Here you are. I have the uncompressed version too, though I'd have to upload offsite if you want that for file-size reasons.
Yours not too bad man, I like it
Is it just me or the collage is getting smaller, or the guy who collect it too selective?
Thanks, I tried.
And as for the collages getting smaller, I believe it to be combination of both. I remember some anons in the most recent Christmas threads tallying up submissions from former years and finding out they're getting a little less each year. However, these numbers were based on the number of images in a final collage, not necessarily total submissions.
Sorry, posting from mobile.
The cookies where totally delicious! Thanks a lot anon!
They were pretty good cookies, especially those with sprinkles on top.
Well, I guess it's fine as long as you guys still here
Gonna go shopping tonight, cheap wine and small cake. I guess few anon is setting up the stage now. Good luck
Feels like I need to do something different for this year's collage.
It's grey and boring outside at this time of the year I don't think there is anything out there that could make for a good picture.
I just feel I need to mix it up because I have been doing the same thing for these collages for a few years now.
>This calendar era is based on the traditionally reckoned year of the conception or birth of Jesus of Nazareth, with AD counting years from the start of this epoch, and BC denoting years before the start of the era. There is no year zero in this scheme, so the year AD 1 immediately follows the year 1 BC. This dating system was devised in 525, but was not widely used until after 800.
The truth machine says so
In fact, I have been test-running nighttime photography the last few days for that very reason.
>not watching anime on your tablet at -10°C
Totally om nom!
Hmm, this one?
It was totally cute. Had a good laugh from it when my imouto asked what it said.
Thanks to everyone who sent me stuff! The cards were great.
Chocolate not pictured as I already ate it a day agoI have to say I'm pretty surprised to get a nendo, not that I mind of course. I'm surprised I didn't see the resemblance between Kuroneko and Lucu before. Though, I've only seen Kuroneko in doujins to be perfectly honest
Having my birthday on Valentine's Day and no girlfriend can really suck at times.
I hope it goes well this year, I've never been more prepared.
how can i celebrate valentines day with my waifu? pic related
thought maybe i would draw a nice picture of her
Looks like this is is the main Valentine's thread so will make the first post here. Bit delayed this year due to
workso even if I did manage to get today off, the shopping for ingredients ate most of it either way. In any case, base thread will be up... soon. Need to at least take things out of the shopping bags and whatnot. Won't start making/baking anything without starting the thread so it shouldn't take too long I reckon.
Trying to take a picture for the possible collage but everything is going wrong. Main laptop is RIP so i have to use my tiny netbook and the lighting in my room is terrible and only camera on hand is my iphone but damn I'm trying.
Pic related, a failed attempt.
I made my trip today, since unfortunately I have stuff tomorrow. Hopefully the timezones will let me post it to the collage, or it'll be the first miss in 3 years. I hope you will all have good celebrations.
In it's defense, it was pushing 8 years old and it gives me an excuse to replace it, but it chose a real good time to shit the bed. Oh well
Looks like I'll be able to post an early submission for the first time ever. My cake is already baked since it's already Valentine's in my country and I'm nocturnal. Still need to find the right candles though.
I really wasnt expecting anything but, good god, I am really grateful Senpai!!! Arigatougosaimasu!!
You're stuck with me, whether you like it or not.
Weather's been shit here, so I'm not shocked that nothing arrived, not even a card.
I did get some good news, my gift to my anon just arrived an hour ago. I was worried it wouldn't make it.
Oh, in that case, its my sisters package.
That's still in the living room, waiting for her to get home from work to open it.
Expect pictures around 10pm EST, when she normally gets home.
Dont worry anon. Shes been the first one at the mail box every other day this week, so your package will be loved.
As for the siblings on /a/, we both have far different tastes, but have always been into anime, so it was really only a matter of time before we were both on here everyday.
I had to send out two packages because everything wouldn't fit in one box, and now the package that I sent out first with all the information on it that a secondary package is comming looks like it will be the last to arrive.
I hope my anon doesn't think I am a dick all the time hes waiting for the second package.
Heres to crossing my fingers that they both arrive together instead of separately now.
>That feel of emptiness when you'll never be with your waifu for real, and will most likely die all alone
>no cards yet
>leave for work before mail arrives
It's not like I wanted to smile during work anyway.
Got two cards and some delicious cookies! Thank you so much anons, the cards are beautiful. You truly made my day a better one.
I sent off the six cards I said I was going to send, and I sent one additional card to one of my secret santas. Nothing's been posted yet.
And I'm still waiting on something like three secret santas to actually send me something. It's long past new years. They all said they'd send something by new years, too.
American post must be slow.
This Valentines will be my first year of actually having a waifu to celebrate it with, and I don't know what to do for her. I'm housebound with no friends/relatives so I can't buy anything special like chocolates or roses in time, and I feel like a pretty useless partner with nothing to offer her on this special day. I can't even atone for it with merchandise of her since she has none.
