Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

A lot of people nowadays probably don't even know how I look IRL at the moment. I give you the opportunity to know le watashi now.

I feel it's the only picture I recently made, where I look like a half-decent human being.

 

 

Fur-lined, weather-beaten jacket screams "I work hard for a living" contrasting with the friendly goatee and vintage reading glasses that shout "I'm a tech support expert, how can I help you today?". Turtleneck sweater underneath the jacket for that Bear Grylls "I'm literally prepared to leave this concrete jungle and survive in the real woods at any time" rough and tumble feel. Slight smile that says "I want to kill myself, but don't really feel like it tbh". Somewhat unkempt but fitting hair that says "I care about my hair enough to not look like a fool, but I'm not metrosexual". Finally, the Apple earbuds show that despite all of this, you are modern and forward-thinking.

9/10.

u srs handsome tbh

Ages ago I've promised to show a photo or two from the conference in which I've tried to sell VN FTLs as a serious academic topic. It was pretty fun, although once more, I've had the pleasure to talk late in the evening as one of the last few people in the whole event. '-.-

Here's a picture of me looking suspiciously like my porn studies professor (I'm starting to think I'm morphing into a vastly inferior copy of him over time):

...and here's one of me listening to questions and trying to look smart (Rikka's not buying it):

Anyways, thank you all for inspiring this little side-project and helping me gather the data. I hope I'll be able to make some more VN-related stuff for university sooner or later. :)

Let us all pray for Lesiak so he can be the first one in the next event. Anyway, nice pics!

Thank you! And well, among the 20+ photos taken by my gf there had to be one or two on which I'm looking (somewhat) like a proper human being. ;)

@Plk_Lesiak You may want to hide the email in the second pic. ^_^ How did it go, by the way? Were the questions good?

Well, I'm not sure if I care enough, it's my official university one, so it's public anyways. And if someone wants to out my in RL as this weirdo yuri-lover from Fuwa, I don't think it can beat my openly-admitted involvement with the brony fandom. It's one thing that comes with combining hobbies with research, you can't really keep it all private and I've stopped caring about that long ago. :P

And it went well, people seemed quite interested and while questions were a bit mundane (like the relation of VN translation scene to funsubbing and amateur manga/LN translations), I possibly succeeded in making them generally curious about the topic. I've also presented this to some people in fan studies circles on my own university and we had a long, nice conversation about yuri and nukige. ;)

I'm rather shy, the only person who knows about my visual novel addiction is my boyfriend and some very long-term friends who I'm hanging out with for years.

You're adorable!! :3 

As for me...(i hate having pictures taken of me, so this is one of the few that I don't absolutely despise)

As I'm Korean (mostly), of course I have to take the required wedding photos (my mom paid, there's no way I'd pay money for this kind of stuff) with my SO and aside from his "HERE'SSSS JOOOOHNNY" look, it's kind of lame being the ugly one in the relationship, LOL.

Have you done panels at cons? I wish there were more informative panels like this at conventions rather than the usual Cosplay Chess (guh) or dances.

Well, not at anime-themed ones. ;) I might try doing some in the future, but there are relatively few opportunities for that in my country and I'm not realy into cons enough (or rich enough) to travel abroad for them. I've made an exception twice for a close friend who's a big-name fanartist in the brony community and helped him with his panels, but he paid for my plane tickets. :D

Eerie that you should make that reference, I just watched The Shining recently. Although I disagree, I think hes making a normal face. You both are beautiful in the photo.

Sooo, a few weeks ago, during my university's Science Festival, I've given a public lecture about the rise and "fall" of VN fan translations to an impressive crowd of 4 people (+ my girlfriend and event moderator - the time of the day and awful weather made us no favours that morning). At least, the audience was pretty attentive and my GF took a few photos with her "vintage" phone - while you can barely see anything on them, I quite like the moments they captured so I've decided to share regardless. :3
