Valentines day is upon us, if you haven't shipped yours out already, you better do so now!
I have everything, but one figure that refuses to come in on time.
Im sending everything today, and then when the figure comes in i'll just send that separately.
I hope I get something this year, im excited.
make sure to include a letter so your anon knows
My gift is already here and I want to open it so badly. Waiting until Friday hurts.
Open it. Maybe it's wrapped. If it's not you, don't have to tell.
I'm kind of worried my assignment's going to wait since there's food inside, but no one would ignore big writing saying perishable, right?
I still think it's best to wait. If it's not wrapped I'd regret it for sure.
I had to ship mine yesterday with 3-day express shipping since they live all the way in CA (I'm on the east coast). Cost me $30 just for shipping, but that's what I get for being a lazy procrastinator.
To all of those left out of the card exchange for one reason or another I'll be making letters for those who still wanted one. It'll be for after Valentine's for sure, but you still would end of getting something. Letters, Poems, you name it and I'll try my best.
What do you guys (re)watch on Valentine's day usually?
I was thinking of Amagami but that's for Christmas and even Toradora would not fit.
Next time, look into priority mail boxes, they are cheaper if your packing heavy stuff
Thats sweet anon, im sure your service will be wanted come friday.
I usually re-watch DearS, and a the few episodes of Zatch Bell! that focus on Wonrei.
Im excited, I cant wait to see what I got.
Are we going to have an image thread for this like we did for /ss/?
Its true suffering waiting to open my package
Hello everyone. I hope you're all doing well this week and that your gifts and cards are going just well. Just wanted to say a few things.
First, to all the people who I somehow managed to miss or skipped over for gift pairing. I'm sorry. I can't say it enough and it makes me feel horrible. It made me check and recheck cards so much that the assignments went out a lot later than I wanted them to. If your cards come in late, you are more than welcome to blame me for it because that would likely be the cause. So I apologize for that too.
I'm sorry for forgetting to send those questions out. I had been grinding through so many card assignments that by the time I got to the end I thought I did everything I needed to. I'll send those questions out now, if they haven't gotten back to you from the last thread.
If anyone has any questions of urgency or importance, just ask me here or send an email.
can I still aply and get cards for valentine's? if yes how do i do that? sorry for being new to this
Well for an event handled on your own, it wasn't too bad. I just feel bad that my European recipients wont get their cards for another week.
But I put enough glorious freedomland things in their cards to hopefully make up for that.
7/10 would enter v/a/lentines day again
You may be able to do a card exchange. However the sign-ups are already done.
You can't. Go away until next year.
ill be yours anon, cause i never signed up. it might come late but by god ill get it to you
hopefully you live in NYC
Godo to see that you're still around Blue, thanks for all the hard work. I understand that it's a lot to organize all these people together, but we appreciate it. I already got messages from 2 people who had been left out, so I've got them covered.
As for the questions it's fine, I was luckily able to track everyone down, so no harm done. I think it was actually better that I asked them personally, so everything worked out in the end.
actually from germany, berlin ;_;
this sounds like a lovely offer - would like to exchange cards with you if still possible
Das ist Gutt
I'll send you some basic details and the such.
did I miss another /a/ thing
whatever I guess..
Nigger, it's the eleventh.
Yeah, its v/a/lentines day. Like secret santa, but with hearts.
oh shnoops can i get in on this too
Oh yes, I don't know if the person who archived the Secret Santa pictures is still here, but if he, or anyone else, would like to archive them again, it would be highly appreciated. Jebus wants a compilation of them.
Unfortunately, I may not be able to do it since I'll be working on the 14th.
This'll be a reference for you and anyone else who wants in as time goes on:
For those who were left out or were too late to sign up for V/a/lentines, you can send me and email and I'll try my best to send out a card/letter to you. I would like for all Non-American anons to email me sooner rather than later, so I can buy more international stamps in one trip. I ask that you include the following information:
What you would like to receive: Card, Letter, Poem, etc. and what kind of content you want inside. (I'll try my best to fulfill requests, but I am much more of a writer than an artist.)
What makes your waifu/hubando special to you: What do you like most about them? Why are they special to you? What do you like most about them? What do you think they'd like the most about you? Do you have any plans/dreams about your future together? Etc. Just about anything that would give me a feel for what makes your relationship special.
Any other info you'd like to add here:
Wait, where can I find this archive?
from 9am to 1pm EST, I can be in charge of picture gathering.
So is Jebus making a video this year? Haven't seen any threads to dump the pictures.
If I remember correctly, didn't you mention that you worked for a certain electronics retailer during the /ss/ threads Blue? If I'm correct, I think we both work for the same company.
Not exactly. I work inside of one but not for them. I'm a third-party.
I almost thought you were going to say you worked in my store.
Ah, I know exactly what you're talking about then.
I doubt that we're at the same store, but you never know. And fuck Black friday ;_;
Im excited, I hope my anon posts his loot!
You'd already know if I was. I have the KLK OST installed to our HomeSync and play it infrequently.
My anon used my Waifu's last name for my last name (which I might not have given come to think of it) on the parcel. I live in a very small town - it was fun to explain to the post office people why that name was on my parcel. I lied and said it was an alias I use on online games... That said, that idea was cute as hell.
I'll be sure to return the favor on White Day. Any other anons thinking of thanking their gift givers? I sent a thank you card to my Santa.
Here's a video of a lot of them. Doesn't have everything. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0JbRX7YEWk
I always send a thank you card to my givers, how great I make the card depends on how thoughtful the gift.
Like I bought a thank you card for my 2012 /ss/, but created one for my 2013 /ss/ because of the care the took.
Im currently making out more cards. The foreign ones are already done an sent, and all the local should be out by tomorrow
If you were assigned to GM of Whittier, please contact me. There is going to be some issues thanks to the Whittier post office, sorry for the trouble.
DL From Texas, your package is sent., I have tracking and it should arrive Thursday.
AC from France
PB from California
Z.McE from Florida
Your cards have been sent out. France might not make it in time.
JH and BW both from the UK, I'm very sorry the first couple of February weeks is crazy busy for me, I thought I could do all my assignments but I was unable to post yours before this week. So your cards will be late.
What happened? I can relay a message right away if you want.
Good idea anon, I will post my foreign anons to let them know its gunna be late
A notice to Mark from Canada, your card may be a few days late, man.
You know post can mean to mail right?
It's cool. My mail is really shit here in the Canadian wilderness, it could have been late even if you sent it in January.
I hope my UK cardbro Rael gets his on time. My post office only offered me one option to post it so I have no idea if it was fast or slow.
For anyone trying to send anything to NJ, don't be surprised if your package is delayed or your assignment says they haven't received it yet. We've been getting pounded with snow lately and have another big-ish storm coming Thursday, so don't stress over it.
To ZM and WA, both in Florida, your cards are going to be late. I'm terribly sorry, I'm a procrastinating and indecisive bastard, one of yours is done but I can't think of what to write, the other is mostly done. It's my fault, and I feel really bad about it.
Same for the New England area in general. NH is supposed to receive a few inches tomorrow night and thursday night.
A.C. of France
P.B. of CA,USA
B.W. of UN
C.T. of CA,USA
W.G. of WA,USA
You letters will be delayed, especially so for those in France and UK
Shit, one of my card anons is from NH. I hope He, She, It. Seriously the name is fucking weird get its.
Tomorrow is the day!
You mean friday.
>people sending me cards
>nobody to send any to
Who are you?
If you didn't get any info to send to people, you may have been excluded and thus no one is sending you any either.
Maybe contact some of the people who have left their emails and do an exchange with them?
PL from NJ, I'm sending out your gift tomorrow. It should arrive on or before Valentine's day.
OG from Spain, AF from Uk, and WC from WA your cards will probably be late. I started them, but I haven't finished them yet.
LB of MN, your package went out on Monday and should get to you before Valentine's.
Same goes for the cards for ZM from FL and Gabe from CA!
I really hope you guys like them. I tried really hard.
Im sure they will love them anon.
LM of Canada
PB of CA
Your cards will be late since they're being sent internationally.
I don't see a single email containing the word Herald anywhere.
Im so ready for this, when valentines day does come, I will rip my box apart
2 1/2 letters done, another 3 1/2 to go.
From the little bit that I've talked with the people who were left over, I can legitimately say that there is no love purer than that between and /a/non and his waifu, some of you guys are truly happy and it's nice to see.
With that being said, I'm out for the night anons, don't forget to hug your waifus tight before you go to sleep.
Sleep well tripfag, sleep well
Me to the mailbox every day until friday
I'm hoping people dump their pictures early so I can collect and have the video out by V-day itself. If not, it's alright.
I think most people plan to dump pictures v-day, and the following saturday.
To my anon who didn't give a last name,
I'm still working on your gift. It's almost done. I just need to add a card to it and box it up for shipping. I want to get it out either tomorrow or Thursday at the latest, but in either case, it's not going to get to you until Saturday or early next week. I'm sorry.
Don't worry, we all understand the huge task you undertook.
Thank you for all your hard work and I hope you have a good v/a/lentines!
I'll let you know when i've received it, Don't worry if it's late though.
AF of UK, I'm sorry but your card will be late.
I've already got mine so I'm sending out a crudely made thank you card today. Probably won't make it in time but still.
AF of CA
MBS of CA
LB of MN
RM of AL
Should have all made it there on time.
You wouldn't happen to be from Newfoundland would you?
If you are, I'm glad you enjoyed my little jape. And I hope you enjoy/enjoyed my gift.
If you AREN'T from Newfoundland, Disregard this I suck cocks.
Does anyone from good ol' USA know if you can get dohnuts delivered to your door?
or atleast a place you could place the order and the person could collect them?
No, most doughnut shops are like fast food places. They don't deliver or take orders.
Anything that you could get delivered wouldn't be very fresh anyway.
welp, it was a nice idea.
It's a shame places like dominoes don't offer them as a desert or something.
Does it have to be doughnuts? There are some places that do offer other deserts for delivery.
Or you could get something from edible arrangements if you have too much money.
well dohnuts would be the most appropriate.
It was just a little extra thought I had today that'd make someone's day extra special.
I want to send a thank you to our dear organiser
Im sending my package out today, hope im not too late.
By what method? From where to where? It's probably only going to make it in time if it's within your state or people live near major mail hubs...
Priority mail, and were only a few states apart.
I sent a letter the day before yesterday detailing that it may or may not be late because a item had yet to arrive.
OH OH i would love to get a letter! i alway miss these things :(
PU from MN.
AS from NJ.
CT from CA.
I will send your gift/cards on Friday. I'm really sorry about this, I just saw that my post office now closes at 5 pm instead of 7 pm so I really can't send them before that.
Are you the one who didn't put any sort of return address on it? I got one and I think the post mark said San Fransisco, but I can't quite tell.
Rael from Sheffield
JL from Sweden
Your cards are on their way.
JH from Exeter
Your gift is on its way. It'll come in two parts due to weight restrictions. Don't despair if the tiny package comes first, another is on the way.
> JL from Sweden
If the post office chooses to bless me, I'll be spending Valentines day with cards for my beloved anon and Spice and wolf LNs /spoiler].
Don't know if this is you, but I received a card today from Sweden. Seems like it was sent from different town than the swede-bro that sent gift
Was it "Insert Face Here"?
haven't opened it, but it says "/a/non <3" on the back
Might be me.
When should I start worrying if I don't get anything in the mail?
Mid-March I guess.
this the letter?
I'd start panicking in the beginning of March
WS of PA, I already contacted blue about it, but I want to tell you myself, I am very sorry, but your stuff will be late. I will make it up to you though <3
This'll be my first Valentine's Day on /a/.
So /a/nons actually sent each other cards/gifts for Valentine's day? That's really nice...
Please lurk more.
I just got this card in! It wasn't late at all.
Thank you Toronto anon, I love my haru, your drawing is so cute.
Posting early for Jebus
I really hope hes not your husbando anon. Not to say i'm judging.
But I totally am
Hes a cute boy, who does cute things.
He could never be anything other than my darling son.
That card's got heart, congrats anon!
I hope I can get something similar soon.
AV from Chile, yours might be late, with customs and all that (and because I only just remembered, sorry). I'll try to send it tomorrow with the fastest shipping I can get. Sorry if it is.
They should be arriving within the next few days.
Anybody else worried their giftee already has what you're sending?
>Not handmaking unique items for your giftee.
I don't think I can handmake something worth $50+.
That's me! Thanks for that, anon. I've not opened the box yet though.
I wouldn't mind. It would hold a bit more meaning though.
i spent 3 hours drawing an anons picture
Yeah, I always seem to miss these threads whenever I'm online.
I'm just worried I'll have wasted my money and their time in the end giving them things they already own.
what would you anons think if you got a letter written like your waifu/husbando was a yandere?
I got a picture of my anon's waifu custom-printed onto fabric for my gift and when I received the product from the fabric printing store, it turned out the sample DPI rendering they showed wasn't accurate and a lot of the picture got cropped out.
Pic related, this is what I wanted to print.
I'm not sure I'd like my waifu's personality being altered like that.
Maybe ask if they have an MFC account sometime? That could dispel any fears.
If she was a canon yandere and I liked that side of her? Then go for it anon.
Mine didn't have a waifu or husbando, so I wrote it as if I was yandere for them, making comments like "It's a good thing Anon-kun doesn't have a waifu, because that way there's no one to get between us, particularly not some 2D WHORE."
It shouldn't be a waste since it is the intention that matters. My /SS/ sent me a fig I already had, but I care for it more since it was a gift.
I don't think anyone would reject a gift of his waifu.
I'd be happy; it'd mean that I can store one copy in mint condition and play/display the other.
I was going to write my card bro's card from the pov of his waifu but decided against it. All I did was leave a note in there saying "(anon)-san I love you ~(waifu)" in moon. It'll be fun if he can't read it.
To my fellow anons Ash K. of AUS, Mark of Canadia, JD of WA, AF of CA, Zanananon McFly of FL, and Ofurainu-san of CA, your mails have been lettered. Expect them soon, boys!
Sorry, I bit my tongue.
>Still no package
>Still no cards
>Haven't seen my initials posted in any of these threads to confirm a shipment, late or not
>No email from Blue saying my package might be late as well
>Less then 2 days to go
Tonight's the night... Right /a/?
Dont freak out, mine wont get to my assignment until friday
Same for me. I'm not worried yet. If I haven't heard by Monday then I'll start to get upset.
Yeah, I figure ill give my package till monday too, since theres storms
I'm sending mine out tomorrow when the mail-lady comes by.
Fuck I just realized I didn't pack the box very tightly. I could hear things shuffle around when I shook it at the post office.
I've already had my share of yandere for christmas. Please, no more.
I did a similar thing but I also cut letters out of magazines and newspapers to "write" with.
If anyone wants, i'm willing do send out a few letters, they wont be in Friday, but you'll get them. i'll try to get as many done as possible, just email me the basic stuff and ill see what i can do. ill draw pictures / everything homemade.
when you email me, be sure to include everything so i can ship the letters our and everything you would want in the drawing and who of.
im newer to this, so ill try my best to give all who ask a card, if i get too many, i wont do big drawings, just simple ones
My box just arrived! It's a little painful having it though, because I want to open it. Still expecting three more cards, but I'm really excited! It's my first v/a/lentines and the first time I'll be celebrating with my waifu, so I hope I can make it special for him. Hopefully my packages and cards are getting out okay.
Ian W.[/spoiler[ from MI and Petey L from NJ, if you haven't gotten my package and card, respectively, I sent them out this past Saturday. They should arrive on time.
Wow, look at me fuck up the spoilers. Sorry.
I would love that
