So there hasn't been a thread on this since the assignments came out earlier this week.
How are people doing with their assignments?
Already got the card designed, trying to figure out gifts

if Blue turns up: When are bonus cards assignments going out?

Fuck me.

I really hope that I can make my anons valentines day great.

Hes spending way over the limits, and even though I don't have nearly the amount he is spending on someone to spend on him, I am doing my best.

So far I have a series he and his waifu can watch together.

Is anyone else sending out multiple cards to their assignment?

I am thinking of splitting up his gifts into three or four packages and writing a note from his waifu to him in every letter mentioning the item.

What do you think? Too gay? Not gay enough?
>>
>>100496931
I think it'd be a bit odd to send multiple packages on the same day.
Maybe send them so they arrive on different days leading up to valentines and in the card write something like "I know I already got something, but I saw this and I just thought you'd love it, so I got it too"
>>
>>100496931
I am.

I have a few letters ready, but I don't have the items yet. I hope they come in on time.
>>
I missed this?
Damn, that was an early organisation.
>>
>>100497029
Ah I meant to mention that. I was planning on sending them on different days leading up to valentines day.
>>
>>100496137

Fucking this, I missed secret santa and this. Why don't you fucking cunts stop having threads at retarded times?
>>
>>100496845
I'm still worried I won't find anything good enough.
I haven't seen the series my assignments Waifu is from and it's really not my taste
But I'm still going to try and send something character relevant though

details of when valentines threads would start where posted in secret santa threads.
It's best to search archives for info.
to be fair, there were only like 3 threads for valentines sign up, most people had signed up from info posted during secret santa

>>100497232

How can I search for something if I didn't even know about it until just now.

I feel bad for the anon who got me. My waifu has little to no merch, and the things she does have are expensive.

The best route to go with someone like that is a Daki or go to Zazzle.com and make them something like a mousepad, luggage tag, ect.
>>
>>100497327
If you don't spend enough time on here to know about every single event, then you are not in need of a v/a/lentine.
>>
>>100497386
Pretty much this.

Unless you are a buyfag and know how to get good prices on older merch.

I suggest everyone look at the buyfag guide though.
>>
You know, for our waifus favorite time of the year, this thread is pretty slow.

Im a draw fag, so it would be a waste if I didn't draw something handmade for her.

dammit, i'm still going to try!
maybe I can play it off as moe
>>
>>100498338
I cant draw either. Im just doing what one anon said and making a notebook with a picture of his waifu on it on Zazzle.

Ill write some cute fluffy crap inside and pray it suffices. Feel free to copy me.

Got someone with a waifu from a well known series but isn't a popular character. She has almost no merch but I'm trying my best. I hope I can still make them happy.

Sorry for your plight anon. That is true suffering.

Any ideas when card only assignments are going out now? Last update I saw was 'hopefully Thursday'.
>>
>>100498757
If you really care and can't think of anything maybe contact blue to ask your Valentine To be a little more specific. I mean, it couldn't hurt and nobody wants a bad Valentine's day.
>>
>>100498757
Buy them chocolates and write 'from your secret admirer'.
>>
>>100498757
Send them yellow tail tuna.

Or resort to looking at social media sites for their tastes.
>>
>>100499088
He mentioned one character, and two series in his "other stuff" section, so I'm going with that. I'm not a fan of any of them, but I guess it can't be helped. I was going to write something "from their waifu" too, but I guess that's out the window as well.
>>
>>100498547
just because i'm curious if this is mine
Izumi from nichijou?
if it is:
I'm aware of the lack of merch, don't worry about it

>Nanami will never shyly hand you home-made chocolates in the hope you will return her feelings
What have you done to me, /a/.

Same boat. Got my card figured out and I'm working on getting gifts together. Pretty excited since I really like my assignment!
I hope my anon doesn't have too much of a hard time since my waifu has nonexistent merchandise. I gave an example of something I could pretend was from my waifu and some other (more popular) characters/shows I like, so hopefully it was sufficient enough!
>>
don't know if this is relevant, but he was posting in previous threads:

anyone know whats the deal with laser card bro? did he send out confirmations to people that will be getting cards?
>>
>>100500407
I don't think so since he said he was also going to send out messages to people who didn't make it to tell them that. I'm not sure how many people ended up applying though, so he might have gotten overwhelmed?

H-here you go anon

I need a bit of help.

I got assigned an anon with a waifu who I recognize and I know how little merchandise she has. So little that there's basically no way to reach my price bracket if I bought what's available now. I think I may have to resort to custom jobs like getting a poster or mug made. Any suggestions on what I can do?
>>
>>100500407
He did. He had a sign-up form and said he'd take the first 12 proper applications.

>>
>>100502212
A few anons have been suggesting zazzle.com
>>
>>100502212
Who is their waifu, and what bracket?
>>
I'm so fucking excited. I already have all my gifts figured out. I'm going to bake some cookies too.

I just need to know my card assignments so I can buy material for those. I have something special in mind.
>>
>>100502212
Anything 'normal' you could get in the character's taste? (something the character bought for someone in their show?)
You could also send flowers from the waifu as a mildly generic, but nice valentines gesture.

I'm just worried that i've heard nothing about it since, no threads, no e-mail confirmation

I'm contemplating custom-ordering a pizza on Valentine's Day and having the pizza guy spell out his waifu's name with pepperoni slices and getting it special-delivered to anon's house.

No anon is so autistic to turn away free pizza at the door, right?
>>
>>100502923
I'd eat it.
If it was fairly plain. I'm super picky about what goes on my pizza.

I'd love a free pizza. Unless I was out of the house or already cooked something, then it's just a waste.
>>
Is this some gift exchange? Aren't you suppose to be giving chocolates to girls?
>>
>>100502923
that would be pretty cool

>>100503677
what if he asked the organiser to tell his assignment "don't worry about dinner on valentines"
>>
>>100503588
I don't think that's how you serve bento
>>
>>100497121
well it's gotta be early so we can sort out gifts and such.
for future reference:
registration started on the 5th and closed on the 12th
>>
If I handmade something of my guy's Waifu and sent it, how should the worth be valued?
>>
>>100507198
Material costs + hourly rate. If an hourly rate seems silly just add a little to the material costs. Should the item be damaged or whatever then at least the cost of remaking it can be reimbursed and it doesn't look undervalued.
>>
>>100507665
I don't know if I'd count hourly rate. A more experienced person could make something in a couple hours, while someone who was a beginner could take several.
>>
>>100507823
Well a beginner wouldn't charge much per hour. It's just a way of justifying what you add on to make it seem like a legit value.
>>
>>100495960
I was too nervous to give out my address, next year I'll buy a proxy service.
Regardless, I wish I could give an Anon something.
>>
I haven't got my assignment from Blue yet, should I send an email? Cards only bracket.
>>
>>100502359
He took my email in an earlier thread and said he'd reserve a space for me, probably out of pity.
Either he's forgotten about me, or he only said it to shut me up; I've heard nothing.
I might cry a little.
>>
>>100508786
Keeping waiting. None of the cards have been assigned yet.

I have no artistic talent. Their waifu has zero merchandise.

Now is a time for panic.
>>
>>100509636
Ejaculate for 3 weeks straight into a card.
>>
>>100509978
Try hitting Pixiv or scan sites for art and go on from there.
>>
>>100509978
Did they include anything else? I'm aware that mine has none, so I mentioned a few other things I liked.
>>
>>100507665
>>100507198
Ask someone how much they would pay for it.
>>
>>100509978
I feel kind of bad for whoever got me. I already have quite a bit of my waifu's merchandise and the few I'm still tracking done are very hard to come by even in Japan.
>>
>>100510079
They did, but including their waifu in a significant way is pretty much obligatory.

>>100510037
Is putting someone else's art on a cushion or something an acceptable thing to do? I'd feel really dirty and lazy if I did, so I want to avoid it if I can.
>>
>>100509978
Does his waifu have a favorite food? You could send that. Or bake cookies in the shape of her, etc.

Also if you're from MD and your waifu is Haruko, I've got a nice gift or two lined up, I just hope it arrives in time. I could have shipped it direct, but I want to wrap it and such.
>>
>>100510367
You should ask for permission if you can from the original artist. If your moral rating isn't too high, feel free to rip art and make something. I doubt anyone will find out.
>>
>>100507198
I'm counting the scarf I'm making as something in the 10-25 bracket.

How nuts is Malaysia?
It's moslem, and I'm worried that their government is as crazy as Indonesia's.

My anon's waifu is a hopeless drug addict, so I'm wondering if I should be worried about making drug references in his card, in case the customs people open it up and suspect I've put cocaine in the chocolate or something. I don't want to risk getting the poor guy executed on valentine's.
Should I also worry about lewd?

If you're reading, anon, don't think you're definitely getting chocolate. It was a hypothetical example. Also, apologies for my ignorance about your fine country.
